It has been a loo; time elnce them has been
anything like a sensation among the clerks In a

shooting or a lady clerk, by her granger lover, In

Mrs. Storer. It is customary lor the em.
ployeesoftbe Redemption Bureau to see their
friends, or any person calling upon tbem, on the
second floor. Mrs. Storer ascended the stairway,
where she wae met by Dllts. Unly a few words

trying to km, hurried back to her place In the
basement, stated ton lady elerk that the man
who had called to see her had tried to shoot
somebody, get a leave of absence, and left for her
The firing attracted a very large crowd ot ex
cited spectators to tbe spot, and the corridor In
the vicinity ef tho Treasurer's office, was soon
thronged, and the wildest stories were set afloat
about tbe shooting and tbe extent of tbe damage
done. A watchman and messenger attempted to
secure Dllts but he
