th-ough the excitement over the Bur
rows traaedy has in a me.-inte subsided,
the people of this city and county can
talk or think of nothing else. The sen
sational finale of the outlaw's life. the
ringing down of the curtain, is now an
event of yesterday, however, and wii
soon be tradition merely. Yesterday
all Demopolis quit business to discuss
the tragic event; today they are up and
about as usual and discussing yesterday'
occurrence only casually.
Amidst the turmoil and confusion yes
terday, much garbling was done La giv
ing out- the accounts, and necessarily
some of this disjointed work Is more or
less visible in every paper.
The story of the capture of Burrows
on Tuesday evening, you are all famliar
with. On the arrival of McDuffie and
Burrows at Linden, the former.
ACTED IN A STRANGE MANNER.
Instead of delivering his prisoner to
the sheiff af Marengo county, MeDuilie
with the assistance of his two negroes,
retained custody of the prisoner. M.
Duffie's course is explained by the fact
that he was not incined to turn Burrows
over to the sheriff because the later m iht
claim the reward or a portion of it for the
delivery of Burrows to the Express
companv. And so on account of this
idea of McDuffie's, Burrows was left in
a room of the jail building, McDuffie
and the two negroes -l heavily armed
kept guard over the prison'c until mid
night, when one of the negroes went to
sleep. McDuffie and tht other negro
remained on duty.
BURROW'S HANDS WERE NEVER TIED.
or handcuded after the jail was reached.
as has been stated in almost every ac
count I have seen or heard. His feet
were chained together. but by a piece of
inexcusable carelessness his hands were
left free. The outlaw was silent for a
long time after lie enterd the room. but
finally this sullennass wore away and he
had quite a conversation with MeDutie
on the chase after him. Burrows was
especially bitter against Detective Thos.
Jackson. He said he was glad Jackson
had missed him. He had over a hun
dred opportunities of killing Jackson, but
hb had never done so. He had made
up his mind now to kill Jackson. and he
wanted him to know it.
McDuffie, among other things, asked
Burrows if it was he who robbed the
train atFlomaton. Burrows said
MAY BE HE DID
and may be he didn't. The people would
hear more of it later. .
It must have been .along about 3
o'clock, says MeDuffie, when his prison
er asked him for something to eat, sayimz
he was hungry and had not tasted food
since the morning. McDuffie replied
that he was in a similar condition, but
there was no help for it, and they must
stick it out togetherr Burrows then said
he had some candy and corn bread and
bacon in his saadle-bags, and he desired
to get the food.
Almost before he was awere of it, says
McDuffe, the negro got up. walked to
the door, picked up the leather cavalry
sandle-bags and tossed them over to
Burrows. The latter reached his hand
down'inlt'o one ot the partitions, and pro
duced some candy, giving some to Mc
Duffie and some to the negro, who had
jgiven him the saddlebags. They all sat
there eating and talking for some four
or five minutes, Burrows seeming to be
in unusually good spirts.
Suddenly, without a word of warning
or a prelimninary motion indicative of
what was to lollow,
-BURROWS DREW TWO BIG PISTOLS
from the saddlebags, and covering each
of his guards he ordered the chains

who had by this tiine awakeded. When
he had approached very near to the out
law the latter said: "That will do. Y ou
-had better keep your distance or some
thing mighthappen." McDuffie obeyed,
saying: "Rube, the cake is yours," Bur
-rows was soon unchained. Then, with
his pistols still drawn, he made one of
--the negroes chain MelDufie, and tied the
other negro to him, He then locked the
door, saying: "I'm Rube Burrows, and

whom the money found on him the eve

negro did not exactly know where Car
tet lived, but knew the nighborhood
of his room. Tile bandit king telling
the poor negro that every next minute
-would be his last, stopped at one or two
-residences, but failed in his search.
Then they learned that Carter had a
room over Glass' store, and thither Bur
- rows and the negro went at a trot, for it
*was fast approching the time for the
dawn to come. Carter was aroused by
loud cries below, and when he asked who
wanted him, he could get no reply. D~e
termnined to know who it was that called.
he dressed, taking care to put his pistol, a
Smith. & Wesson double-astion, of
32-calibert, in his pocket.
A moment later he appeared at the
entrance., When lie opened the door and
stepped out, Burrows instantly covered
him with two pistols, saying: "Give me
OR1I'LL KILL YoU,
you ." Carter looked at
his opponent and1 his expression was se
rene, He looked at Rube possibly a see
-ond, and then two pistol shots rang out,
the one seeming but an echo shot or the
other. And then both men backing
continued their tirmng until their pistols
were exhausted. Both of the shots fired
when the combatants were at close
range did the work. The other eight
went wide of the mark.
Right at this juncture, before the re
sults of the duel were known, the negro
who had been escorting Burrows around
rushed up to Rube, who had fallen by
this time, grabbed his other pistols and
had a picnic firmng them in the air. The
citizens of the town who had started for
the seen of the encounter, hearing all
of the shooting, concluded that Burrows

floor in chains before the latter, fearing

for means to effect his liberty. H~e got

Just as he was leaving the place, a free
man once more, he heard the pistol shots
ring out and hurried in the direction
from which they came.
LArrving at the scene of the desperate
duel, McDluffic stumbled upon the body
of Burrows, from which the

Terrible Battle With the Waves.
NEW GLASGow, N. S., Oct. 15-A
thrilling story is that of the rescue of
the four men who remained on the
wrecked bark Melmerby, standed at
Little Harbor, while on a voyage from
Quebec for Greenock, with lumber, and
from which the captain, first and second
ofleers and twelve men were drowned.
All day Monday crowds stood on the
beach watching the poor unfortunates
on the crumbling wreck, but the specta
tors were powerless to effect or even at
tempt a rescue, so wild was the sea. and
night settled downi without any abate
ment of the terrific storm. Two men
remained on shore and occasionally
waved lanterns to show the shipwrecked
men that they were not'forgotten.
When morning dawned Tuesday morn
ing an immence concourse assembled,
but it was noon before it was considered
at all possible to make any attempt at
rescue. Then a boat was launched,
mannedl by a volunteer crew, consisting
of Captains Graham. David, Frazer
Williams and Dr. L. C. Leon, of New
Glasgow, James Maglasheu of Beg
Island, and A. Desconsaman. The
brave fellows fought a terrible battle
with the waves, but eventually reached
the wreck. when m~ghty cheers went up
from thze anxious watchers on shore.
One by one the exhausted and benum
bed shiipwrecked men were lowered
into the boat, and after a second des
perate hattle with the waves, conveyed
them safelv to land. The work was
faeditated fby a liberal use of oil. T wo
of the rescued men were siek, and one
had his shoulder broken. The rescued
men were seamen Kane and Evans and
the steward and cap~tainl of the schooner,
who went to supply the bark with pro
visions, and were unable to regain their
own vessel. The stranded Melmerby
is fast breaking up.

decided to undertake this dangerous
and, up to this time, new step in "prae

organized the work. The second story
of a three-floored house on D) street (No.
200) was rented at 420 per month, and
artloads of material from the ceusus

cerks who could be relied upon to hold
their tongues were engaged in July and
put to work.

was before Magistrate D~umble at Co

prisoner had been gulity ot a very bad
olense and had shown a bravado that
was astomlshing. Hie was undoubtedly
a bov of bad proclivities, yet the magis
trate felt that to send him to prison
would simnly confirm him in crime.
Under all tfie circumstances, his honor
thought the best thing thiat could be (lone
was to give the boy a severe flogging.
He said that if Smith's father would give
the boy twenty lashes on the bare back
with a bireh gad, and inflict the punish
ment conscientiously, and to thc satis
faction of the court. he would not send
the boy to the penitentiary. The father
readily accepted the magistrate's proposi
tion. and in the cell thie culprit wa-s
severely flogged by his faither. Each
stroke of the gnd left a livid welt upon
the back of thie boy. who cried with the
pain. After the boy had recovered
somewhat from his castigation, he was
taken back to the courtroom andl senten
