Les Angeles, CaL, Sept 2t At Lan
caster, a town thirty miles from here,
In an open valley at the edge of Col Col
orado Desert, lives Stephen Ilansderf,
with his wife and twcnty-raonths-eld
Last Thursday he left home for
another part of the pluee where he was
working. Late In the afternoon the
mother went In search of a stray cow.
The baby, clfld only In a cnllca wrap
per, hntlcss and barefooted, without the
mother's knowledge started after her.
When she returned from the search she
was surprised te find the child miss
ing. She made fruitless search, grew
excited and alarmed the neighborhood.
A bcarchlng party started out and
hunted till night without nvalL Ex
i citcment spread through the whole
town, and by daylight next -morning
a strong party of organized searchers
started en a hunt There was no tim
ber in the region, but the cactus and
sage brush were be high us te render it
Impossible te sce the child at a short
distance, even from the back of
a horse. The region Is ene of
Intense heat and Infested with
rattlesnakes, coyotes nnd many
poisonous Insects. The earth In
many places Is crusted with alkali. Fer
a long tlme the party discovered no
6lgns whatever. Flnully a coyote trail
was struck. On It could occasionally
be seen the footprints of a child, with
new and then splotches of bleed en the
cactus. Arranging themselves se they
should net lese sight of each ether, the
searchers followed the trail, spreading
themselves ever a width of half a mile.
The trail led direct te the desert and
te a phenomena known as "Dry Lake."
This lake is nothing mere than a solid
bed of white alkali, the crust of which
is perfectly hard and level. Standing
en rolling sand en the edge of this lake
a traveler beholds a wonderful mirage
of a sheet of silvery clear water. The
party concluded that the child, con
sumed by thirst had toddled ever te
this lake, and though the indurnte
crust would reveal no footprints, the
party pressed en ever It Four miles
from the edge was found the dead body
of the little wanderer lying en his face,
Ids feet legs and hands tern, and the
bleed crusted ever them.
He had been dead but a few hours,
yet ihls body was blistering under the
burning sun. The party belied the child
and hurried back te the edge of the
lake, which, when they rcuehed, their
own tongues had commenced te swell
with heat and lack of water. The little
fellow had walked all night and had
died of exhaustion just as the sun was
commencing te manifest its fearful
heat He hed walked fourteen miles
into ene of the most terrible regions en

HON. 0. S. DEMINU.
Republicans Urge Him te ttoeemu a Can
didate for Circuit Clerk.
Republican politics is looking up in
this as well as ether sections in the
Bourbon state. At the recent Democratic
primary election in the Eighteenth
Judicial District Hen. W. W. Kimbrough
of Harrison county, was nominated for
Circuit Judge. Since that time Hen. O.
S. Deming of Robertsen lias been most
urgently solicited by Democrats as well
as Republicans from every county in the
District te make the race against Mr.
Kimbrough, all assuring him et ultimate
success. Judge Deming is known by
almost cveiy voter in the District, and is
recegnised by both parties as an able
lawyer and a scholarly, affable, holiest
and Christian man. That he would make
one of the ablest and fairest Circuit
Judges in the Btate no one doubts. He
lias been untiring in his labor as a
Republican. He was a Hayes Electer in
1870, made the race for Lieutenant Lieutenant
Governer under Colonel Walter Evans in
1879, has twice been elected County
Judge of Robertsen, and received 185
compilmentary votes at Louisville in
March for delegate from the state at
large He has several times carried his
own county in the face of an over
whelming Democratic majority If he
should consent te run there is little
doubt but that he would be elected.

m A TURMOIL
Over the Perry Monument Sitl
i At Cleveland, 0.
Its Threatened Removal is Causing
Much Lecal Feeling.
The Heroes of a Later Day Would Llkf
te Sce In IU Place a Monument
Urcctcd te the Soldiers of the Later
Wnr of the Rebellion.
Clrvelaxd, 0., Sept. 21. The hand
seme Perry monument, commemera
ting the victory en lake Erie, whici
stands 'In the principle square of thh
city, has become a subject of contention,
and its threatened removal Is causing
much local feeling. Seme of the horeci
of a later day would see In Its plnce
monument te the soldiers of the lati
war, and an act was seme tlme age
secured authorizing a commission tc
erect one. Then came the question as t(
site, and the preposition te remove th
Perry monument already once moved
te a less desirable location since first
erected In the square. The opposition
became strong and demonstrative te the
extent of tearing down a fence which
was placed around the spot that th
commission had selected for the new
monument. The matter was taken intc
the courts, and up te the supreme court,
where a decision was rendered, held
ing that under the act autherising th
erection of the monument the cemmis.
siencrs were empowered te select such
n site ns they considered suitable, and
this hns been construed te mean thai
they may put It where the Perry mer
ument new stands.
But these who believed a removal ei
the reminder of Perry and hlfl 'greal
victory would be no less than a desecre"
tlen had net yet exhausted their ret
sources. A non-resident stockholder la
the Ferest City house, which faces tin
square, went Inte the United Statci
court with a petition for an injunc
tion against the erection of the pre.
posed soldiers' monument en the site
proposed, the allegation being that
the square was dedicated for pur
pose, and it would be det-lmentnl
te the plaintiffs rights te permit it
te be occupied by the propebod monu
ment. The question cuts se large a
