Probably one of tbe most mysterious
disappearances was that of Miss Alary
Xewbold, a lady who cine to St.
Louis from Carrollton couijty, Mo., to
attend the fair of 1S7J and to receive
medical treatment. She was accom
panied by several friends and stopped
at the St. Nicholas hotel, on Fourth
She tlisappeared on tho second day
after her arrival, and tho only clue
ever obtained concerning her was that
nho was seen to enter the rcsidenco of
a quack doetoress who then occupied
apartments at 214 North Sixth street.
This doetoress formerly resided at
Klmmswluk, Mo., and had finite
a reputation. Tho police took
her in charge at the time
they were hunting for tho mls.-Ing
woman, and subsequently arrested her
on tho charge of killing her mother at
Kimmswlck by poison. The body of
her mother was exhumed, but was too
badly decomirosed to be examined.
Numerous charges were subsquently
preferred against her, and she was
dually sent to tho penitentiary. Miss
Nowbold was observed to enter her
place one afternoon about :t o'clock,
and was never seen or heard of again.
Tho whole police department worked
on this case for weeks, even going to
the extent of having tho seweis ex
amined. IDA llUCKLKY'S AIJDUOTIOX.
The abduction of Ida Uuckloy for
f-everal days was classed as a myste
rious event, and threatened to bailie
Investigation. She wa& a member of
the deml-moude, and lived at the Dew
.Drop Inn, a disreputable resort on
Chlsty avenue. About dusk one eve
ning a spring wagon occupied by two
men drove up to the Inn. She was
called out ami lifted into the wagon,
which rapidly drove away. A mo
ment afterwards tho same vehicle was
seen driving along Franklin avenue,
and the suppressed screams of the girl
were heard by several parties.
The affair was reported to tho police,
who endeavored to trace the parties,
without success. About a week after
wards the bodv of the girl was dlScov-
ered in the snow in an orchard in St
been secreted in Mr. llaarstlck's fctn
bio by a colored butler during tho
time that the police wero hunting for
her. , ,
The disappearance of MlssZcrelda

much of a stir at tho time. Tho list

G.UNKSVir.LK, Aug. 10.
To tell you all I know and think
about Gainesville and her enterprising
I citizens, would require more space
1 tnun you could well devote to me this
j week. Gainesville is emphatically tho
' home of the cowman und thevare nre-
liave ( pnrlng homes which would adorn any
PtHwcngcrs for IiotiUvlIlo will plcnso
remember that the Ohio fc MlIll'l,'1
railway Is tho only lino from St. Louis
to Louisville under oho nmnaKonicnt,
that tho lino by this routo is how-8
tho quickest, that thercMs uo change
of cars, that no other routo furnishes
and that tho Ohio & Mississippi rail
way Is tho popular routo as demonstra
ted by tho fact that .ninety-nine out of
every hundred passengers go by tho
Ohio & Mississippi railroad. Kates al
ways as towns by Inferior Hues.
i-citv. I am Indebted to Mr. J. M. Huf-
llngton, a very pleasant gentleman, for
a very pleasant drive over the city, and
' every lew minutes as we came to some
lanro structure In course of erection,
ho would explain that this or that cat
tleman was building and that It would
cost anywhere between $10,000 and $40,
000. for they were building them of all
t sizes and styles.
Tho shipments of beef cattle from
Gainesville tills season have amounted
to over four hundred cars and still the
work goes On. The Missouri Pacific
road tills year is giving better rates
than last year, and also giving ship
pers much shorter time than last, and
thus winning golden opinions from
all concerned. Tho company seems to
realize that tho custom is worth solic
iting and is conlii.ually adding to its
facilities for accotnmocating them.
I will speak brielly of some of the
large cattle and land linns that make
their headquarters at Gainesville,
though I do not wish it understood
that there nrc no others .there besides
those I sneak Of. because I did not
have an opportunity of getting ac
quainted with representatives of all
these II m s. This city Is the homo of
Ike Cloud of the Mill Iron Cattle com
pany of which Henry Warren Is presi
dent, J. V. Wilson vice president,
John Binip-on secretary and treasurer
and James Simpson general manager.
These names are as tamlllar as liouse
hould words in cattle circles, and every
man in tho company is noted for his
ability and integrity. They own 280,000
acres of land and It is well stocked.
Their capital stock is a cool million.
Then there is the Colorado, Chicago
and Texas Land ami Cattle Company
whope ollice is at Gainesville and whoso
officers are F. J. Hull, president, L. B.
nmith, vice president C. It. Smith, sec
retary and Tieasurer, and A. Foray the,
general manager. Their authorized
capital stockis $3,500,000 and they have
a paid up capital of SG0,000. They
own vast tracts of land unit large herds
of cattle situated mostly in Cottle
The Stone Land and Cattle Compa
ny also has headquarters at Galnesvl lie
J. W.Wilson is president of thlscompa

left the DeW Drop Inn was traced to
their place of business. They under
went a trial In the criminal court, and
The next case which attracted tho
attention of the police was that of
Annlo Jteyburn, whoso parent reside
In Illinois. She was ,traced to St.
Louis and nothing moro could bo
heard of her. A large reward was of
fered for her recovery, and tho police
wero put upon the case. They made
no progress and were about to glvo it
up, when one day a Catholic priest
walked Into tho detective's oilleo at
the Four Courts, aud calling the chief
of tho detectives aside informed
him that the girl was safe, but could
not he turned over to her parents for
about seven weeks, and at tho same
time exacting a promise from the de
tective not to tell her wheieabouts
until after that time, but to simply no
tify her parents that she was sate.
Her father was notified aud speedily
nut In an unnearance at tho Four
Courts. The detective explained that
the young huly having an adventurous
turn" had engaged as a domestic at tho
house of an acquaintance, and that her
tlmu wonld not bo out until seven
weeks, when she would cemo home.
The detectlvo said ho was obligated not
lo tell her whereabouts, but assured
tho old gentleman that she was safe.
At the end of seven weeks the priest
turned her over to tho detective, who
presented her to her father.
Tho disappearance of Judge Mayo of
Oiney, a prominent aud woll-kuown
citizen of Illinois, was tho next mys
terious case placed in tho hands of the
police to unravel. Judge Mayo, who
was well-known In St. Louis, visited
tho city and stopped at the Plan tens'
house. Ho purchased a railroad ticket
Jbr the purpose of returning home, and
vois last seen at tho Union depot.
There all traco of him was lost. Ho
was never heard of.
Tho disappearance, of Captain DIx, a
citizen of St. Louis aud u prominent
tsteiuubout captain, was as mysterious
as tho ptccedlug one. Ho disappeared
from his homo and was novor heard
of. No clue of any description was
ever obtained concerning him.
s Tho dlsapjiearanco of Miss Zoo Wut
klus from tho residence of her uncle
u this city, and her untimely end
created considerable comment at tho
time. She Wleappearcd ami loft uo
trace behind her. Her cabo was placed
in tho hands of the police, who fol
lowed numerous chics, und dually
ignvo up the search. Her body was
afterwards discovered in tho .Missis-
slppl river. A medical examination
alur.vcd that tho unfortunate girl had
fullered uo ill treatment.
Another recent disappearance was
'Tho Gainesville Land and Cattle
Company also has its headquarters
here. Its olllcers are : J. G. Wither
spoon, president; F. J. Hall, vice
presldunt; P. S. Witherspoon, treas
urer: Frank Witherspoon, secretary,
J. W. Montague, general manager. It
has an authorized capital of $1,000,000.
Their range is principally in Harde
man county whero they have ut least
'V iWMl luii(i nf fnr.t.li lFi'iizlini. A lrliiiico
at the names of the gentlemen com
prising this company Is a buillcicnt
eulogy on its meuts.
. Tho Hed River cattle Company is
another nourishing and wewlthy con
cern whose headquaiters aro here, and
I'ani sorry that 1 neglected toftobtniu
tho names of all the gentlemen coin
posing It. Ihit when I say that Win.
lioui'land is one of its oillcors, and
Frank Houston another, and Mr. Sher
wood still another, it Is equivalent to
saying that It is ono of the wealthiest
and most reliable concerns in tho
Tin: kacu couitsn
hero Is in excellent condition aud
thero aio quite a number 01 good
horses already on hand. Among oth
er pintles who have blooded stock
there, I noticed several belonging to
Mr. Wilson and others whoso owners
I did not know. The fall races here
will bo tho most exciting of any
over held ln tho state and it may be
put down for a certainty that largo
sums of money will change hands heio
I am indebted to J. G. Witherspoon
for a pleasant drive to thecountry dur
itg which wo passed the elegant resi
dence of J. W. Wilson, and near that
of Mrs. 0. C. Cannon, and Inspected
thoroughly the grounds of John Stone
situated about four miles west of town.
Mr. Stono has an elegant place, a Hue
houso with all modern conveniences;
a spacious park, with tlsh pond and
shrubbery In fact just Mich a plaeo as
such a big hearted liberal man as John
Stone ought to have. John also has
some Hue hooded stock which
aro doing well aud which are
likely to make him big sums ot
money in tho future. I cannot help
saying that the citizens of Galnsvillc
aro more courteous and liberal than
those of any place I havo visited. Now
there is J. G. Witherspoon. When you
meet him away from home, you can
not help remarking that he Is a pleas
ant, tillable gentleman but meet him
ut Gainesville nnd ho is tho prince of
courtiers. T shall not. soon forget his
kindness to me any way. 1 might say
much more about this prosperous city
and yet leave much utibuld, hut as I
write entirely without notes no ono
can complain ifl forget many Interest
ing thinim. I'll go back there again
howevernnd then I'll make amends
for what I have overlooked this time.
I want to eay however
that Gainesville has a good hotel. The
Lindsay Is hard to beat.
