SHOT BY CONSTABLES.
They Were Assaulted by One White
Man and Two Negroes.
A dispatch from Charleston to The
State says M. S. Sullivan, a liDeman
of the Postal Telegraph company, was
shot and seriously, perhaps fatally,
wounded in an affray with State Con
stables J. T. Owens and C. T. Hud
son, which occurred Thursday night
on the steam launch Hornet, betveen
11 and 12 o'clock on the cove beach at
Mount Pleasant. The shooting grew
out of the capture of contraband li
'quor which Sullivan was conveyiug
j from the Clyde wharf to a storehouse
I on the water front. Two negro men
j were with Sullivan at the time, ODe of
i whom, it is said, was also wounded by j
j the constables. Their names could
not be learned, for neither has
been seen since the affair. Both ne
groes fled from the boat, it is said,
when the shooting commenced.
It is not positively known which
constable shot Sullivan. At the St.
Francis Xavier infirmary Thursday,
j Sullivan, it Is alleged, stated that j
he was shot by Constable Owens and
that the negro was shot by Constable
Hudson. Sullivan is thought to be in j
a critical condition. He was brought
to the city Thursday about 3
a. m. and sent to the infirmary. An
operation was performed upon him
and it was found that the ball had
passed through his left arm, entered
the side and perforated the intestines
in six different places. The bullet
was not located.
Constables Hudson aud Owens ar
rived in the city this morn'mr at 3.30
o'clock with 19 gallons* ol ..iskey,
which they had captureu from the
Hornet, Sullivan's launch, having
hired a row boat at Mount Pleasant
and rowed the goods over to Charles
ton. Chief Constable Holmes was
immediately notified of the shooting
of Sullivan and the capture of the li
quor. Chief State Constable Hammet
was informed of the shooting early
Eriday morning by Constable Holmes
and he is expected in the city soon
to make an investigation. Consta
bles Owens and Hudson, acting upon
the advice of Constable Holmes, sur
rendered to Sheriff Martin about 11
o'clock Thursnay and were sent to
jail to await further developments.

If a cold lingers, there is danger of
pneumonia. If LaGrippe leaves the
lungs in an inflamed condition, there]
is great danger of pneumonia. Pre-1
vent this fatal disease by using Ry
dale's Elixir; it cures colds quickly
and leaves the throat and lungssound.
It is the best remedy for that peculiar
inflamed condition of the lungs that so
frequently follows LaGrippe. This
modern scientific throat and lung
remedy is a safe remedy for young and
old, in all throat and lung diseases.

A Mystery Explained.
? The Retailer and Advertiser says
even the casual observer who walks
through the retail districts of New
York during the holiday season can
scarcely fail to be impressed with the
almost phenomenal difference in the
amount of business done in the vari
ous stores, lie will notice that one
store seems to be constantly crowded
with customers, that the salespeople
are working to the limit of their en
durance and that the delivery wagons
are kept busy at night and day dis
tributing the goods sold. In another
store in the same block, perhaps next
door, he will observe that there is
'? practically "nothing doing." This
j store is quite as attractive as the
; other store. It handles the same
lines and qualities of goods, and per
I haps they come from the same man
ufactories. The prices are equally
! low, and the clerks are courteous and
attentive. But there is a much smal
ler staff of salespeople employed, and
even during the holiday rush they are
not kept busy. "Why is there such a
remarkable difference? I have taken
J the trouble to investigate the problem
[and have made careful observations
in a dozen or more cases. I have in
variably found that the merchants
I who were doing the business were good
; advertisers and that the ones wno
were apprently receiving but little
benefit from the holiday trade made
no use of printer's ink.
Clearing a Mj'stery.
The first trace of Mrs. John C.
Burns since her disappearance from
a Chicago hotel two years ago was
found last week when James Taylor, '
a negm was arrested at Cincinnati.
He had in his possession, Mrs. Burns'
Daughter of the American Revolution
pin, engraved with her name, as well
as several articles of jewelry which
bore Initials. The prisoner is said to
have disclosed the hiding places of
other jewels, which are alleged to
have been the property of Mrs. Burns.
The total value of the property re
covered is nearly 35,000. About two
years ago, Mrs. Burns announced that
she was going away on a short visit.
Her husband was believed to be in
Europe. Taking several trunks, but
leaving many of her belongings in her
room, Mrs. Burns left the hotel giv
ing instructions to hold mail until
she sent her forwarding address. From
that day to this no word has been re
ceived from her or her husband. Mrs.
Burns was prominent as a member of
the Daughters of the American
Revolution, and also was counected
with several women's clubs, most of
the organizations to which she belong
ed having been located In the East,
where she resided before coming to

Prospectors from the lower Sierra
Madre Mountains of Mexico, south
west of El Paso, bring the story of a
raid made by Guan Coloroda, alais
"John Redhead," upon Don Felipe,
a newly formed Mormon colony. The
noted bandit and his band pillaged
the settlement, carrying away three
of Elder Hiram Johnson's wives, one
of which is the favorite of his large
household. A posse of Mexican rural
police and a squad of Mormons, who
as a vigilance committee, style them-1
selves "avenging angels," pursued the
bandits for thirty-six hours and tinal
ly surprised them in the fastness of
the Sierra Mafira Mountains. A tight

laws were wounded. The band fled,
leaving the women. They had been
kept two days in a cave, where a con
siderable amount of bullion treasure
was found, which, it is believed, was
tolen from a pack train recently.
Knife in the Brain.
At New Ha/an, Con., a portion of a
long thin knife blade, which had been
imbedded more than twenty years in
his skull, penetrating an inch into the
brain, was removed from the head of
Christopher Osborn by Dr. M. J.
Adams. The patient is a negro, 57
years old. He is employed by Prof. J.
M. Weir, of Yale. According to
Osborn's history of the knife blade, he
quarreled with another negro, who
struck him in the head with a knife.
The blade broke off and the steel close
