j A Neat Capture.
John Jackson is undoubtedly a bard case as
bard as he is black. He was sent dowu from
Johnson county several years ago on a charge
of grand larceny. He has escaped from the pen
three times. Once be was captured by Sheriff
Murray, but escaped again, and was yesterday
yanked in, through the efforts ot Deputy Geo.
Adams and an assistant. The Sheriff received
bis papers in the case last Mttrjh, and following
the matter up, finally located Jackson near the
junction of Walnut and Flat Creeks. Deputy
Adams and bis assistant went out yesterday,
armed with guns, lor the ostensible purpose ol
ttinting rabbits. They found their rabbit, and
(ieorge drew a bead on biro aud told him to el
evate bis arms. Like a sensible negro he did
so. He was then secured, brougbt back to
town and lodged In jail. He will go to Jeff in
a few days. The capture was planned and car
ried out in a first-class style. We understand
a rewarJ U ut for Jackson. Sodalia Demo

A Horrible Death.
Speaking of the horrible death of Mltchil
and Ketchum, the two men recently referred
to in the telegraphic columns of the Gazette,
as having b en burned to death, in Wester
Nebraska for horse stealing, the Kearney Press
says : They were chained together by their bands
high in the air and their feet nearly touching
the ground. In this position they hung while
the slow fire was nuilt under them, and when
found their extremities were burnt eff, their
entrails were hanging out Bnd they were
dead. How long they hung there, writhing in
agony, with their mustles scorching, theirflesh
frying and frizzling and their shrieks and
groans tesounding over the deserted prairie
before death came to their relief, we have no
means of knowing.
William Sweet, only eight years old, saw a
terrible sight the other dav. He is the son of a
street-car conductor in New York who had
gone to take iharge of his car, leaving the boy
with his mother at home. During the day
Mrs. Sweet complained of sickness, and sent
the boy to find and bring his father home. He
happened to meet the conductor at a near point
on his line and did his errand. Sweet told the
boy he would come home as soon as he could
take the car to the depot and return on it a
passenger. The bov then returned home and
found the door locked. He got in, however, but
soon came out in terror. He ran to the rail
road again, and saw bis father coming on the
car. He cried, ' Oh, papa, come home, mam
ma has hanged herself." The man and boy
hastened kome, and found the wife and mother
hanging by a rope ataacbed to a Joor-liotel,
When cut down she was quite dead. The
boy's story pictures the sight he saw: "When
I opened the door and saw mamma banging I
was scared and didn't know what to do. Her
face was black: she rolled her eyes at me, but
could not speak, and she was swinging. I said,
mamma, what have you done? but she did not
say anything, so I ran for papa." What a
ghost for the boy's memory will be that black
face and rolling eyes, and swaying form in the
agonies of strangling.

mounted the scaffold with a firm step, and after
religious services Diggs made a brief speech,
warning everybody against whisky and gamb

his doom and Postoak made a ten minutes'
prayer in the Creek language. Diggs strug

Frank Turner, the young desperado 'who Inst
week cut the thrort of Kllison Judd, at Mason
Station, Ky., has been removed from jail at
Williamstown to the Covington jail to prevent
lynching. Probably no young man of Turner's
age has ever acquired such a criminal record as
be. The following Is a pretty full list of bis
murders and attempted assassinations:
In 1873 be killed Charles Brogard, a German
In Owen x unty. He got Into a quarrel with
Brogs .,; flnd hit him on the bead with the beam
of ' ; air of scales, breaking his skull.
, he same yenr be shot and killed a negro on
ihe Southern Railroad, without exchanging a
word with him. Tbe negro was a stranger,
and the grand jury never found out his name.
For both these murders money acquitted him.
In 1875 he shot a man named Marshal three
times, the result of a quarrel. Marshal got
well and Turner was fined $15.
In 1870 he killed a man named Pat Ryan at
Hardscribble S-hool House. Ryan was work
ing on the Southern Road at the time. He was
drinkeng from a bottle as Turuer rode up and
aid, "IIdd on, leave me a drink." Ryan
answered by inverting the bottle, whereupon
Turner shot him Iu the head aud the mau died.
Turner was acquitted.
Soon after be met a Mr. Colvilleon the road
i ling in a wagon with his (Colville'.-) wife.
He hal a grudge a.'ainst Colville and shot him
twice without killing him.
Seven or eight months ago he look a girl out
riding from a picnic, and when he got her In a
retired spot, ho took her out of the buggy and
outraged her. A neighbor saw the deed, but
such was Turner's terisni that the man feared
to rescue the girl, and the girl's relations were
afraid to prosecute him. His list victim was
Judd, as already stated.

The Herald made mention about two werks
since of a Mrs. Herbert Ky.hian who arrived in
this city in search of her faithless husband, who
had eloped at Macon, Mo., with an actress
whose stage name is Mabel Ross, with whom
he had become hopelessly infatuated. As stated
at the time, failing to fi id her truant husband
here, she went on to Fort Worth in search of
him, and her hunt proving futile at that point,
she returned, and taking the Central, went to
Galveston, San Antonio, Houston aud Waco.
At the latter place she learned that a man and
woman answering the description of her hus
band and his mistress had come up on the road ;
she took tbe train for this oint. Having once
been at Thompson's Theater in this city in her
search, she determined to disguise herself, and,
ber hair heiu? short, favored her in her scheme.
She appeared at the theater in men's dress, cir
culating among the private boxes, aud all oyer

whom she used to know in Macon, Mo., and

physicians of acknowledged ability. Sehenck's
Pulmonic Syrup alone has cured many, as
these evidences will show; but;the cure is oiten
promoted by the employment of two other
remedies which Dr. Schenck provides for the
purpose. Thesd additional remedies are
Sehenck's Sea Weed Tonic ami Mandrake Pills.
By the timely use of these medicines, accord

most any case of Consumption may be cured.
Every moment ol delay makes your cure more
difficult, and all depends on the judicious choice
of a remedy. Sehenck's Mandrake Pills are an
agreeable and sale cure for Constipation caused
by billiousness, and also for 'sallow complex

remedy for disordered stomach and all its evils
resulting therefrom. Dr. Schenck is profes
