ISED AN AXE AS A WEAPON.
(Continued from page one.)
and he said he wanted to see the
doctor, and when told that he was
not at home, became violent, and
threatened to smash in the doors
and windows. This frightened the
women, and Mrs. Houston made her
escape through the back to the
house next door and called Mr.
Stacey and Mr. Paine. They dressed
hurriedly, and having no other wea
pon handy, grabbed the axe and
made a bold skirmish to the front
porch of Houston's residence, after
what they thought was a burglar.
Upon being asked what he wanted
by Mr. Stacey the alleged doctor
said he just wanted to see Dr. Hous
ton, who was an old friend of his.
Stacey would accept no such ex
cuses, and demanded that he march
down town, holding the axe over
him and threatening to crush his
skull if he disobeyed.
When "Dr." Bowen found that he
was being treated so roughly he re
sented, and was rather reluctant
about going along peaceably, but
Stacey kept the sharp bit of the axe
in view, and threatened to trim him
down to his own size with it if he
was not good. The trio got down
to the Hotel Northern, when Dr.
Houston came along, returning from
his call, and he went in search of
Officer Green, who was at the sta
tion. In the meantime "Dr." Bowen
was held prisoner in the hotel lob
by, and Mr. Stacey stood
guard at the door with the axe until
the officer arrived.
Officer Green locked him up in
jail for the night, and yesterday
morning he was given a hearing be
fore Judge Garr and sentenced to
twenty days in the county jail, but
suspended sentence provided he left
town, which he did.
Those who happened to be present
when Mr. Stacey arrived down town
with his prisoner, declared that he
portrayed a comical sight, although
it was a life and death proposition
to him at the time. He had just re
tired for the night, and on being so
hurriedly aroused donned only a
pair of trousers over his night dress
and drew on a pair of slippers, for
getting all about a hat. The prison
er. almost twice his size, took no
tions at times to be resentful at
being ordered around so roughly,but
when the axe w'as thrust under his
'nose would cS(lm down and try to
argue Mr. Stacey out of having him
arrested, assuring that if he could
only see Dr. Houston that all would

be straightened out, but Stacey was
firm and would listen to none of
these arguments, and from his tone
of voice one would have judged that
he meant every word he said.
With axe held in position ready
to deal the fatal blow on the crani
um of the supposed-to-be burglar,
he stood shivering in the cold mid
night air outside the Hotel Northern
while Mr. Paine and Dr. Houston
skirmished around for an officer,
which took some time, so the pris
oner was allowed to go inside and
be seated, but Stacey stood guard at
the door with a grim determination
and never gave up his vigil until the
culprit was safe in the hands of the

A large white snow owl in the
