"You have written him ?ince?"
"Yes?everything," answered Letty,
understanding why Walter hesitated.
"Then it is all right, for if lie is a

to take care of you. I congratulate you
with all my heart, dear Letty. You
will not stay at madam's very loug."
"Thank you ; perhaps not," was the
reply, with a blttsh and smile.

He did aol ceate bis care then, but

The Draal Cam. t. Life.
At seven o'clock on Sunday morning
crape hung by the door of the dwelling
123 Mary street, a thoroughfare between
Carpenter street and Washington
avenue, in the Second Ward. The
neighbors'who knew the story of alonsr
and painful ?liners, said: "Poor Mr.
Schlack baa gone at last!" Word was
sent to the doctor that he need attend
his patient no longer. The undertaker
was visited, in Old Sucedes' (Glor a
Dei) church Mr. Schrack's death wag
announced and the Sunday-schooi
scholars commented upon the death of
the teacher they had learned to love.
At 11 o'clock, four hoan tutor, tlie
?rape was torn down from beside the
dwelling; in Mary street. The order for
the undertaker was countermanded. The
doctor was told to hurry to his patient.
The Sunday-school scholars in Old
Swedes' church were about passing a
resolution of condolence with their
teacher's orphaned boy when the pas
tor,Rev. S. ti. Simes,was handed a piece
of paper bearing IIm single word.hastily
1 written, "Revived." The neighborhood
wassoon thick with rumors, all having
for their purport the coming of the dead
to life. Among those who had au ink?
ling of the facts it was generally agreed
i that something not far short of a
, miracle had happened. The story la a
J. Harry Sel.rack, once a wealt
merchant, lost nearly all his fortune
indorsing the notes of others, who wi

and two children having died, he has I
some time past resided In a neat lit
house on Mary .street, above Frw
Fur the la-t four months he has be
seriously ill, witb nervous spasms

week he himself gave up all hope
living, and the attending physician, L
James II. (.'antrell.expected his patient

MR. SCHRACK DIES.
Apparently Mr. Schrack ?lit ?1 at twen
minutes of 7 o'clock on Sunday month
His limbs be, ame cold ami rigid, l?
lips colored purple, and around h
mouth was the blue mark, general
supposed to betoken d atb. A ban.
mirror was placed over his mouth, hi
its shining surface was not dimmed.
Hi- friends and neighbors who stet
around pronounced him dead, an
grieve?! for him. A few hours alt?':
ward the body was completely strippt
that it might be prepared for the nndei
taki r'l hand-. Before washing th
corpse it wa- necessary to remove i
from the bed. A neighbor, Mr. Charle
Shanklaiid, lilted the body, when, '
his alarm. he distinctly heard a feebl
groan. A hurried examination ?level
oped the fact that the man was not dead
The body was wrapped m blankets an.
bottles of hot water placed betweel

THE DEAD MAN'S STORY.
"Last September I had a terrible at
tack of hemorliagc of the lungs, am
siucc then I have not been able to d<
anything except for (die period of threi
weeks. My health at limes was fair
but three weeks ago I felt that I wat
going fast. My flesh left my body; m*
entire appearance changed ; my appetite
was gone. Kverything I swallowet
was at once throivn oil' my stomach
Last Thursday a week I found I wouk
have to give up. I felt as though tin
power of action in my limbs was leav
ingme. I was fearful of going to bed
and so I sat in a chair for three day?
and nights. I then made up my mind
that I would have to die, and I aske-1
tobe put to bed. Wednesday night I
was taken with something like a chill
and spasms at the heart. Alter coming
through that I seemed tn revive until
l,i?t Saturday. Kveryhnur during that
day I experii need a change. While
the right* hand would be purple lite left
would he whit'. When the kit band
became dark the right became white
again. The entire left side ol my body
was numb and almost useless. About
'J o'clock on Saturday uight my eye
sight heiraii l.ul.ng me. I loot niy
hearing and my speech bet-nine thick,
my tongue, baing greatly swollen. I
bat) fully made up my mind thai I bad
lodie. At about A o'clock on Sunday
morning the tips of my fingers Ihm anie
like h ul. Mi sight was now entirely
gone. My stomsch was terribly swol?
len aud wns gn-aily inflamed. Each
sin eeedinn eramp was more severe and
I reached ttiaher up into the stomach.
All the passages of my throat seemed
?tobe closed. Shortly before 7 o'clock.
i I asked to be moved to the foot of the
bod. My head had scarcely touched
the pillow, when I exclaimed : "Throw
me over!" and then?I fouud myself in
another land. The vision I looked
upon was the most beautiful that man
oversaw. It would be impossible for
me to i;ive a description that would d.
it justice. My tirst leeling was that of
falling down a great height, and then I
foHiid mysclT iu a valley. I walked
along until I came to a terrible, dark,
black river, at ?light of which I shudder?
ed and feared. Before me ami beyond
the river was a black cloud. Others
were walking over the river, aud, al?
though I dreaded it, something un:cd
me on. and I felt that I had to tro with
the others. As I got nearer to the
dark cloud it became bright and beauti?
ful, and, exp tndin_r. it opened and dis?
closed the most beautiful sight. The
first ? saw was Jesus. I saw a great
temple aud a great throne. I saw my
little boy. who was drowned two years
ago. and my other dead child. I saw
my dead wife ; but I could not touch
them. I saw people whom I had al?
most forgotton. I saw my old gray
haired grandfather, who died when I
; was but two years old. There were
; many whom I looked for. but I did not
i see them.

Shortly before five o'clock on Thurs
day morning Martin Kunkle. of tht
Cincinnati police, was shot and killed ir
Dayton street, in that city, while at?
tempting the arrest of a gang of burglars,
The fight was a running one, extending
over several squares, and after the
death of Kunkle the burglars escaped,
Y'estcrday when the train on the L. C,
and L., due in this city shortly aftei
twelve noon, had reached a point fifteen
miles distant from Cincinnati.three men
boarded the first passenger car, each
anSAvering iu a general way to the de?
scription given of the murderers of
Kunkle. Their cautious manner and
weary look excited the suspicions of the
train employees, and after Lawrence

i engaged them in a desultory conver?
sation, in which one of them voluntarily

Before reaching Greensburg the con
I ductor also became satisfied that the
! right men were shadowed.aud at Greens
i burg he seut a telegram to Marshal
Manning' this city, saying: "Meet me
(?u No. t? if you possibly can."
Manning supposed the telegram ha
reference to some confidence game 01
the train, and therefore left the city un?
prepared, going down at 11 A.M. an.
meeting Smith's train at New London
He was then informed of the charaate
of the three men who were seated u
the smoking car. and he satisfied him
self by inspection that they wer. a ba?
lot. and that he needed assistance t?
effect a capture. It was the intentioi
to go direct to the Union Depot will
'?it the Usual-t??ps at the shops in thi
?astern part of the city, and a brakemai
adroitly locked the front door of the car
so as to prevent egress except by tin
passage which Maiming guarded. Un
fortunately, however, for part of th?
plan, the engineer misunderstood the
signal and stopped at the shops as usua
and the gang discovered the frout dooi
locked, "dropped" on Manning's gam?
and made a rush for liberty.
Manning collared the first one pre?
senting himself at the door, and called
to the others. "Surrender: you ar?
my prisoners." The second one in
line drew his revolver, and Manning,
letting go the first, caught his arm and
forced the weapon down toward the floor
and pushed the fellow back aalf the
length of the car. the two struggling
desperately, and the prisoner all the
timo attempting to shoot the oiiieer.?
Meanwhile the direst coufusion reigned
i.iside the car, and it was heightened
by the third drawing two revolvers
from his pocket, firing two shots at
Manning, and then turning upon the
?assengers. with orders to clear the
car. The coach was crowded with
passengers, ?but they tumbled out in
such a hurry that in a trice the coast
was comparatively clear.
At Shelbyville Deck Sherwood, Chief
Fire Eugineer ol this city, boarded the
train, and at the beginning oftho diffi?
culty was close at hand in conversation
with James M. Myers. Myers under?
stood the situation at a ?lance, but
Sherwood waited for explanation, until
the fellow who fired at Manuing planted
a cocked revolver?two-of them, in fact
j? in his teeth, saying: "You-. git
| right out." lie went out. Meanwhile
' the first scoundrel collared by Manning
j cleared the platform, but in his haste
J and nervousness dropped his weapon
j between the platforms on the track.
After Sherwood withdrew the third
desperado, known as Wearer, jammed
his weapon in the teeth of Manning.
and made him release his hold upon the
j one be was struggling with, and who is
1 known as Davis. Weaver aud Davis
i then followed the first burglar, known as
the "Kid," kecpum their weapons in
readiness ami threatening death to an
one who molested them.
The burglars went across the com
monsin the direction of English avenue
ami when probably one hundred fee
distant were tired upon by the brakes
man. This was the signal for a genera
volley from the passengers and trail
employees, who followed cautiously,
ami were kept at fespcctfull distance
by occasional shots from the fugitives
It happened that the English avenui

horses were scarce. An effort was else
made to get mere effective Arcarme, the
little pocket pistols carried by the crowd
being no match for the heavy "navies"
of the opposition.
Marshal Manning aud his posse fol?
lowed until the capture of the street car
and then they drew off to orzanise a
' methodical pursuit. Isaac Keeley
! brought the news to police headquarters
'? and to the Sheriff, and in a few minutee

Matilda Stanley, known as the Queen
of the American Gypsies, died very
suddenly at Vicksburg. Mississippi, last
week, and the body was ta.ken to Dayton

Dayton with her tribe f.rthe last twenty
years. A large tract of land near the
city belongs to her and the tribe, whr
are very wealthy. They spend the
summer in the North and emigrate to
the South in winter. Mrs. Stanley was
i one of the oldest Gypsies in the country
and recognized as head in authority by
all in the United States. The body will
not be entombed at Davtoa till next
June, and then be buried with ceremo?

has a son living near this city on the
Stringtown road. He is a prosperous
and wealthy farmer and hss long given
up the predatory and nomadic life of his
race, while his habits are medilied ac?

and is proud of his connection with the
Royal family. Mr. Stanley is compara?

farms in Ohis, Indiana and Mississippi,
