Dr. Smith narrowly escaped being se
riously Injured yesterday evening. Ho
was in his buggy driving down Commer
cial avenue, patt '.tie now Ellis building,
when a train of tho C. & Y. road pa'sod
him. His bono took (right1 and began
backing tbo bugcy across the track. Tho
Ducttr seeing tho imminent danger ho was
in from the train struck the horto, and bo
sprang forward, upsetting the buggy, and
throwing tho Doctor violontly to the
ground, injuring his right arm and hip.
rho Doctor is nil grit, is always cool and
self-posscsiod, and ho bad nil bis senses
about him, Ho hold on to tho horto, and
stopped him, and thus saved his buggy
from total deitructlon. Like' Grant, Dr.
Smith is a groat srnokor. When the ac-
cidont commencod he had a cigar in his
mouth, and when it ended ho was still
ouffiing away as if nothing hul occurred.
Ho saved both his neck and n't cigar, and
wo congratulato him ; but his buggy was
considerably injured, at alto was his
body, nnd wo commisiornto him.
Tbo scrub game of base-ball at the Park

MILTS, TIIK MUJtDKREH OK
(JKO. DKNNIK IN DOU
YEAKS AGO, AH
Tho readers of Thk Hcllhtin alroady
know that tevoral dayi tince Sheriff" Ir
vin arrosted in Kansss a man by tbn nnino
of Elijah 11. Dilts, and brought him to
this city, where ho is now confined in the
county Jll ; but very few know anything
of tho circumstances lurrounding tho crime
for which he was arrested, and it is our
purpose in this item to relatothetn to near
corroctly as possible.
In tho year lfcoO Dilte was a resident of
this county, and lived in Dog Tooth pro
cinct. There alio lived in Dog Tooth a
man by tbo name of George Donnio, nnd
Dilts and Dannie wero not friendly. On
ono occasion Dilts and Dennie bad a quar
rel, which culminated in a rough nnd
tumble fight, in which Dilts was severely
worsted. Two weoks afterwards
Dilts, in company with several other
men, met Dennie in tho road near the res
idence of Hezikab Rcmmick, nnd picking
up a club made an assault on him. Den
nie twice succeoded in getting the club
from his assailant, and both times throw
it away. Dilts again picked up the club
and attempted to striko Dennie with it,
but tbo latter a third time succeeded in
getting it away from blm,butbeforo Dennie
could detposo of tl.o club Dilts drow a
pistol and shot bim dead.
The murderer was arrested, und admit
ted tho killing, remarking that ho had
killed ono dd dog," and he "would kill
two moro bofore night.'' Jbo county Jail
was then at Thebes, and It was there that
Dilts was confined a portion of tho time,
and the rest of the time ho was confined
in tho Union county jail at Jonosboro.
Alter being in Jail tomo eight or nino
months he succeoded in making his escape,
inco which time bo has been at large.
According to his own story,after Li- es
cape from prison ho traveled
ovor Kentucky, and a great
portion of Missouri, at ono time
going from Sandoval to St. Louis in tho
same car with John Hodges and C. C.
Colo, thon sheriff of this county, ho being
unknown to them.
After going first to uno placo nnd thon
another for four years, bo nt length net
tled down in Leavenworth county, Kan
sas, whero by industry and economy ho
succeeded iu aceummulating some prop
erty. However, ho was regarded among
his neighbors ns a dangerous man, and is
represuntod to !nvo killed the stock of
tbote with whom bo was at enmity. On
ono occasion while enyagod in a dispute
with ono of his neighbors, ho said that
"be had bad to leave ono state, and if poo

Several months ago Sheriff Alex. II.
Irvin, by sotno means, obtainod informa
tion of Dilts wheroabouts. Soveral weeks
ago ho armed hinisolf with the proper
documents, and started for Kansas, where
"he found Dilts living on a farm about ono
mile from Falrmount station, on the Kan
sas i'acillo railroad, in Loavonworth
county. After arrotting Dilts Sheriff
Irvin immediately startod for home,
wboro ho arrived on last "Wednesday
morning, safoly lodging tho prisoner in
tbo county Jail. At tbo time Dilts was
arrestod tho idontical pistol with which ho
shot Dennie was found upon his person.
