HY MAiicrs JFSTESS.
Tho fair palo moon bwui g up
over tho city lighting up tho streets,
business houses, churches and
pritons, happy homes and scenes
of revelry and pleasure. All along
tho main business streets, ot tho
town tho electric lights added to
the brilliancy of the night and tho
shadows flitted hero and there an
hurrying fiet and rolling carriages
passed by. Ten o'clock struck
from tho steejde of the Piesbyti-rian
church and forth from by-street
and alley came little groups of men
and all appeared to be hurrying in
the same direction. Below tho
market squaro stood tbe city prison
its cold, fcombro wall? lising bleak
ly and elnistcrly towards the skj-.
A great crowd surrounded it and
an angry hum illled tho air as a
thousand men rained their voices
in curses and execrations. Tho
Etreeu were blocked and drawn up
in close rank around tbo jail stood
a cordon of police, the stars on their
breasts flashing and glittering In
the dazzling electric light. Shoul
der to shoulder with set faces and
helmets drawn down over their
faces liko men who wero facing a
frtonn of bail.
A teirible eiime had been com
mittal and pent-up indignation
was about to burst in a storm ot
enireauce and Into and five thous
and men stood ready to wiest from
tho piotection of tho Jaw, tlio guilty
wretch who cowered tenor stricken
in his cell as the jells of tbo mob
grew louder and louder. t
Ho wa a joung man, smooth
f.wed and light haired and not
more than twenty-one. Greit drops
of peispiiation lolled down his face
though tbo night was chill and
raw and bo could not set still a
minute at a timo but moved bick
and foith in his cell like a caged
beast. One moment be would ap
proach tho steel grating and peer
wildly out. Just acrosi from his
cell was a window and by standing
on his tin-toes tbe voting prisoner
could catch a fleeting glimpse of
tho surging crowd outBidc and hear
the frenzied shoutB of tho men who
wore domanding his life. Young,
handsomo and just entering man
hood, tbo hour had como for him
The night beforo ho had entered
a houeo for the pnrpoto of robbery
and being detected had shot and
killed a prominent and popular
professional in m and his wife, cap
turo had follow id tho crime and
now Ibo fury of tho peoplo was
about to burst over his doonud
head. Ho Lent and listened lo
catch tho w oi ds of the mob outside
and every word fell on bis ear liko
a knoll. Onco ho hud been tbu
petted mid spoiled idol of his hoiw .
educated and rcjined, jet a hard
ened criminal. Thoughts of tboso
ho left at homo flashed through bin
mind and for tho fust timo in jean
a tear fell on his cheek and his face
imiveiid in an agony of remorse.
Hark I A great blow shook tho
jail's outer door and tbo shouting
and cursing broke out afresh, tell
ing that tho attaik on the jail had
began in earnest. A great body of
infuriated men had hurled them
selves on tho police and tho battlo
was on. Pistol shots, blows and
frenzied shouts, a fow minutes of
fishing band to hand and tho po
lico wero ovei powered.
'lhe doomed mad had stood with
face pressed against tho bars and
his hands clutching tho steel den
pairingly while the brief struggle
lasted and his last hspi faded awav
as a sledge hammer fell on tbo
