THE FAIR SLAYEB
irSlio Is Not Craay Spruks or Her Victim
with lio Tonderest Affection, i:xprcv
Ihr I'l'iifoutul borrow at Having Lost
II or Loto.
Memphis, March (5.- If Alieo Mitchell
is not crazy sho is a most extraordinary
sano person. From tho time of her ar
rest to tho release of Lillio Johnson, hni
co-defendant and room-nmto at tho jail,
sho was very quiet, teeming to care ab
solutely nothing about tho killing of
Freda Ward or tho probablo conse
quences to herself. She was not especi
ally affectionate toward Lillio, though
perfectly friendly, but when Lillio was
admitted to bail and was fcii the eve of
leaving tho jail for her home, Alico be
came violently agitated by tho thought
of the loss she was about to sustain. Sho
frantically embraced Lillio and covered
hor face with kisses, and oven extended
similar caresses to tho father of her com
panion, who was there to tako his
daughter away. But after Lillie's de
parture she speedily regained her com
posuro and now appears to be as well
content alone as sho was before. At
times sho speaks of hor victim with tho
tonderest affection, expressing her pro
fouudest sorrow at having lost her love,
but never a word of regret for having
ruthlessly slaughtered hor. Sho has cut
out of the newspapers all the pictures of
Freda and frequently kisses and talks to
them as if they were the original. In a
different mood sho does some art work
herself, having a considerable talent for
drawing. Among her productions aro
sketches of tho scenes m tho cnnunnl
courtroom during her three appearances
thoro as a prisoner at the bar, including
portraits of tho judge, tho attornoy-geu-eral
and her own counsel.
HANGED TO A TREE
On the Mulnlloiid by u Mobof I'lrty Arincd
Dkxtek, Mo., March 5. Four fully
disguised and heavily armed men went
to tho jail at Bloomfield and knocked at
Sheriff Barham's door, who opened it,
asking: "Who's thoro?" Ho was cov
ered by guns and ordered to givo up the
keys to Murderer Amos Miller's coll.
He argued and pleaded with the men,
but under threats of instant death he
told tho men where the keys were; then,
at tho front of a revolver, went upstairs
and oponed tho cell. Miller was taken
out, a ropo was thrown over his head
and ho was hurried out of town three-
quarters of a milo south and hanged to
a treo on tho main road.
Only ono man besides Sheriff Barbara
saw the party in Bloomfield, and ho says
fullv fifty men wero in tho mob. Their
victim was carried out without a sound,
and it was unknown until tho sheriff
6ont out word of what had happoned.
Tho sheriff states that ho was completely
taken by surprise, as ho was expecting
guards to como to the jail to watch the
Tho murderor was left hanging until
9 o'clock next morning, when the cor

and delivered tho body to Miller's
This is tho last chapter in tho Dexter
