eist, rormerly a popular physician of
tie city, who is "Guilty of murder in
the first degree," said twelve of hip
ellow-countrymen in their verdict Sat
urday morning, February 16. This

When asked by a reporter of one of
the daily papers how did he fare dur
ing his first night in prison after his
conviction, replied that he got along
as wen as could be expected in such a
place, with the exception of being dis
turbed by "the rats and Negroes."
were it the "rats and Negroes" that
disturbed the innocent dreams of Dr.
eist? He said that he saw creeninir
shadows pass his window. Were those
the "silhouettes" of the escaping pris
oners? or were they the hallucinations
or his alleged and proven crimes?
In one of Shakespeare's great crea
tions based upon fact, it is said, he
told of Clarence of royal lineage who,
wnen mewed up in the Tower of Lon
don, had a dream a dream so fright
ful and so horrid that it racked his
soul, n it he thoucht himself in hell
in which the souls of those whom he
had slain on earth had gone and who
seeing him coming shrieked out, there
comes Clarence, false, fleeting, npr-
Jured Clarence, seize upon him furies
and give him to your sharpest tor
ments. On awakening he told his keep
er that so real was his dream, he
would not pass another such a night
for the wealth of all the world. It
was the souls of those whom he had
slain that made the dream of Clar
ence so terrible that he shook with
the fears and terrors of his ruthless
Dr. Feist's innocent slumbers are
listurbed by (he stealthy creepings of
he rats and the uncanny noises of
sleeping Negroes. Is it not barelv
possible that the rats and Negroes are
the "silhouettes" of his crimes on
the window of his soul? His own
'ountrymen by their verdict for an
awful crime put him witnin the
disturbing radius of the rats and Ne
groes. PETITION IS DISMISSED.
The petition of Ida Cartwright to se
