Ellis's Last Words.
The Ashland Republican prints the following
as the dying declaration of Ellis,
the murderer who was lynched at, that
place last week:
"The murderer was asked if he had anything
to say, and he answered: 'Nothing.
in court was true; the other two
are guilty, and so am I; not of actual murder
but of enough. I deserve to die." He was
then asked if he wanted to pray, to which he
replied ; " No, I have made all the preparation
I can, and am ready." He was then pulled up
from the ground and allowed to hang for a
moment, then let down considerably choked,
but still alive. "When he had sufficiently recovered,
he said" Oh, why didn't you let me
hang?" He was asked: ' Is there anything
vou have not told?" He answered: No; let me
hang this time." He was then hauled up and
the rope secured. He died without a struggle."
The Ashland Express adds :
These were the dying declarations of a man
who knew he was doomed, and that death
.awaited him. These statements were made
when he knew he would be ushered into eternity
in a few minutes. They were statements
made under the awful circumstances at a time
when he knew that In a few moments his eyes
would be closed in death and there was no relenting
on the part of, the mob, who had seen
lit to take the execution of the law; no, not of
the law, but of their own vengeance upon their
victim, Into their own hands. The statements
were made in an honest hour, and none but an
Idiot will pretend to say they wore not true.

Julia A. Hunt.
Miss Julia A. Hunt, the actress, who
claims Kentucky as the State of her nativity,
is not meeting with the success in New
York that attended her in the South. The
Sun pronounces her new play of "Florinel"
as a silly, dreamy and badly-constructed
affair, and says she is "impulsive and
earnest, with some natural capacity for the
stage, and awkward method and indifferent
training. She also sings badly, and belongs
distinctly to the experimental season, but
with more hope of her, perhaps, than
ordinarily attaches to debutantes of her
class." The Herald admits that "she is a
young lady with a fair degree of dramatic
talent a faculty for breaking forth into
song on slight provocation and a considerable
ability in the display of an unusually
varied wardrobe. Miss Hunt did not fail
to make some good points during the
evening, and was equally successful in the
display of pretty satin skirts and pretty
MISS ZOE WATKINS' FATE.
The Body of the Missing Denver Girl
Found in the Mississippi River.
St. Louis, May 30th. L. A. Watkins, a
wholesale hide and leather dealer, removed
from St. Louis to Denver on account
of failing health several years ago.
He still maintained a branch house in St.
Louis, and his family have kept up intimate
relations with friends here. Miss
Zoe Watkins and her elder sister, Lilly
Watkins, arrived in the city May 13. They
were on their way to New Orleans on a
pleasure trip, but stopped here for a few
days to visit the family of Mr. James Martin,
City Weigher. A party was arr.anged
in honor of the two young" ladies for the
18th. At about four'o'clock in the afternoon
Miss Zoe said she would go out and
post a letter to a. friend in Denver, and at
the same time pay a farewell visit to a
lady in the neighborhood. She was accompanied
to the corner of the street, to
the letter box, by one of the family. This
was the last seen of her. As evening approached,
and the time for dressing for
the party came, some little anxiety was
felt by the Martin family, but no alarm.
About halfpast eight o'clock a messenger
was sent to the house where she had intended
visiting, and it was then learned
that the girl had not been thereat all. The
police was informed of the mysterious
disappearance, but were begged" that no
publicity be given to the case. -.
-Miss Zoe seventeen .years-old.-

lice of the western cities have been constantly
on the lookout for clues which
might lead to her discovery. This morning
a body floated into the eddy at the
foot of Edward street, Carondelet, the peculiar
locality where the river has given
up so many hundreds of its dead. Joseph
Ray, a lisherman who had been furnished
with a description of Miss Watkins at once
recognized the body as that of Miss Zoe
Watkins. The remains were taken to the
morgue, where a searching examination
No marks of violence were found and

uur Hearts are sau ana neavy lauen,
For thy great gain is to us loss.
Thou, entered in the heavenly portal,
With crown, and lyre, and well-earned palm
Sit steeped in joy's deep and immortal,
And for all pain, harts found a balm.
To other years the mind will wander,
When thou wast gay, and strong, and well,
And on thy loveliness we ponder,
Till roused by, funereal bell. .
The days went by with song and laughter,
And ille was bright with joyous hope,
Undimned by thought of a hereafter,
Embracing sorrow in its scope.
But thou, with grief wast made acquainted,
And though thou left us in thy youth,
"We know that thou art crowned and sainted,
In that dear land of peace and truth.
