Overcome by tho Death Btfntanue.
Ouo of tho most sensational scenes
over witnessed in a courtroom occurred
at Jasper, Fla., rccontly, when Judge
White sentenced a man named Jones to
death for murder Jones was pnt on
trial Friday mumiug, aud a verdict of
guilty was returned Saturday morning.
Tho inuu seemed dazed by tho verdict,
aud when called to stand up for sen?
tence arose mcchunioally.
Jones apparently did not take any in?
terest iu thu proceedings till near tho
close. Then ho loaned forward and lis?
tened intently. As tho words "hang by
tho neck until dead" wore uttered by
Judge White Jones full to the floor, ap?

tered his heart. For a long whilo ho
was thonght dead, but ho was tin all j

It's bud enough for McKinley when

STORIES OK THE DAY. * |
I Im Major Uad u Satultlve Spirit, and Ho
Was Quick on the. Trlcjur.
"Mujor Min,, , buck in tho lutost sev?
enties," said a worker on Newspaper
row, "fiourihhed us the editor-in-chief
of the Kansas City Times. Dr, Muuford
was tlio publisher, but Bloss wus tho
uutnve ugunt who got out the pupur.
There were occasions suggested by tho
turns und twists of wofitorn Journalism
uf that day when editors drank o'er- !
deop. Major BIosb was no uxoeption
from the Koneral ruu. Ono evening Mu?
jor Blosd was a bit heavy from his liba?
tions. He strode davionsly into Frank
Aim's saloon and called huskily for tiro
waten. Tho borkr.epur was one of those
guardian angola who toll men when
they have enough. He declined to give
Major ,, the nourishment demanded.
" 'You've got enough, major,' re?
marked tlie barkeeper, with an air of
cold severity. 'You can't get anything
to drink heie '
"Now, the major was a man of proud
spirit and much buutenr. Moreover, he
was from Kentucky and always aocom
[ puniod his strolls about the city with a
'faithful dorringer, tho barrel whereof
I was nhout two inches long, with a boro
liko a stove pipe. No sooner did the
barkeeper make the prudent remurk
quoted than the major, his spirit wound?
ed beyond any power of words to ex?
press, suddenly produced tho faithful
dorringer und tired it with vast noiso
and smoko, bang 1 at tho barkeeper.
"The pistol was so Bhort it wasn't
pointing direct at tho victim, which
was a good thing. As it was, tho bullot
plowed a bad furrow through tho scent -
ed forotop of tho barkeeper and tumbled
him in among his glasses as if he'd
been hit with a mnllot. Then the major
caino composedly behind tho bnr and
bulped himself, remarking to tho horri?
" 'ft would never do?hie?to allow
such oojiaille?hie?ns bartenders to go
to?hie?prescribing for gentlemen.'
"With this highly satisfactory ex?
planation of _ his attitude tho major
staggered awuy. Dr. Manford got tho
barkeeper to go away, and the affair
"Major Blo.ss on one invasion during
his editorship of The Times was lying
on tho sofa asleep. It was about 3
o'clock in the afternoon, and except for
tho major, deeply asleep, and Billy Bil?
ker, the exchange editor, tho place wus
deserted. Suddenly a man camo up to
whip tho editor. Ho was a big man.
" 'Who Wrote that?' ho hissod, strid?
ing up to Baker and shoving the casus
bulli under his alarmed nose.
" 'Lot me beg of you,' urged Baker,
edging nway as a first step toward ou
understanding, 'to bear always in mind
' that I didn't write it. Moreover, I don't
know who did. However, if you will
come up at 7 o'clock this evening the
gang will bo here, and I've uo doubt a
little researoh on your part Will torn
"Tlie man who wanted to whip the
editor said he'd surely eome; thut his
lifo had but one purpose now, and that
was to llud the fellow who wrote the
article and mako mi example of horror
of him. Just as he was departing a ma*
licionti idea struck Bilker.
" 'Here,' ho (railed after tbe visitor,;
?coiuu bank here. I'll tell you what to
do. Major BIosh iu iu tho other room, j
lie's tliB managing editor. Ho didn't
write that article; but, after all, he'sre
KpoiiHibln for it, and he's the man yon
ought to sue. You had better step ist
there and talk to him.'
"Tho visitor sprang into the other
room liko a pnuthor and seized the ma*
jor by tho shoulder.
" 'See here,' ho roared, 'got np hare I
I want to talk to you.1 At this point he
shook tho major violently.
"That gtcut journalist blundered to
his feet with hearty promptitude. Out
canio that trusty derringer, and the
ban;,'! which followed made the win?
dows rattle. The bullot tore a hole in
tho partition big enough to thrust one's
ll-t through. Tho man who came to
whip tho editor fled like an antelope,
tho doughty major in hot pursuit, still
half asleep. Hut the man was too swift.
As ho disappeared down the stairs the
luajor hurled the derringer after him.
Then ho canio yawniug and stretching
his arms. As he lay down on the sofa
to rosume his snooze he said to Baker,
with a prodigious yawn:
" 'Who was that fellow, Billy?' "??
A Lucky Gueis.
A Wall street broker made a luckr
guess ouo day last week. A customer
stepped into his office, accompanied by
u man who was a stranger to tho broker,
nutl suid, "My friend baa just come
from England, and I like to introduce
ono Englishman to another. "
"But I urn not an Englishman by
birth," said tho stranger.
"I observo by your speech that you
aro not," remarked tho broker.
"My speech?" answered the other.
"Where, then, do you suppose I was
"A bot," cried tho customer, "thai
you can't guess, for I don't know."
"A dollar that he was born in Gibral?
tar," replied the broker.
The stranger was nstouiahed, for . it
was indeed there that ho was born, and
tho customer paid tho bet.
"How did you know?" tho broker
was asked next day by tho customer.
"I did not know und am not a mind
reader," auswored the broker. "I made
a luoky guess"; that's ull. At first whoa
tho thing was sprung on me I was about
to say Wales or British Honduras,or
Capo Colony or Malta or auywbere eAse,
but Gibraltar was tho last place that
came to my mind, and so I spoke .the
word. A mau may often make a lucky
guess of tho kind, though ho hasn't BOO
ond sight."?Now York Bun.
