lKN.tA. Nov. 20. Tho newspapers of

Prominent among these is the report,
said to be well founded, tbat the Rus
sian government has ordered a reinforce
ment of. 40,003 troops to be dispatched
to the frontier and that orders have
been Issued largely to increase the bar
rack accommodations at various points
along the Russian frontier generally.
Coupled with this announcement is
the report, believed to be correct, that
the Austrian government, In addition to
the relnforconients recently sent to the
Galiclnn frontier, has ordored a large
body of troops to be dispatched to
strengthen the frontier guards. -
Tacked on to these significant state
ments is the fact that the German War

portable tents to be manufactured for

It Is the general opinion that the Czar
and his advisors are being driven to des
peration on account of the famine
troubles, internal political difficulties
and financial complications brought to
an acute stage by the recent failure to
float the now Russian loan. That war
would be a positive relief from these
complications seems to be gaining
ground rapidly, and may be the cause
of the present uneasy feeling.
The Russian Minister of War is said
to have suddenly abandoned the project
of purchasing new smokeless powder
small calibre rifles in France and to have
ordered the government ammunition
factories to work night and day at thi
task, on hand for some time past, ol

InoNTo.v, Ta., Nov. 20. The brutnl
double murder of Jennnetto Nlpsh, and
her husband, William, at Smoketown,
near here, Is the great nnd only theme
of dlicusslon. William Keck, the mur

The aged couple lived In an old one

He was asked to remain for dinner,
and did so. So far as is known there
was no trouble bctwoon him nnd the
old folk, and robbery seems to be tbe
only motive for the crime. The story of
the shooting is told by tbo husb.ind,
who, although mortally wounded,
crawled on his hands and feet to the
house of Henry Druckoumlller, who
lives about a hundred yards away, and
notified them of the tragedy.
After dinner, he said, Keck went to
tho corner of the kitchen where his gun
was standing, and took up tho weapon.
Nlpsh was sitting at the window look
ing at the chicken?, Keck deliberately
fired at him, tho charge taking effect in
the old man's back, near tho right
shoulder, felling him to tho floor. Mrs.
Nlpsh went to her husband's assistance,
but wns burled aside by Keck, who then
wont out to the wood pile, seized an axe,
and returning struck Nlpsh on the back
ot tho head.
The old man tried to defend himself
by holding up his hands, whereupon
Keck picked up a heavy piece of kind
ling wood and struck his victim a ter
rific blow across the head, making him
Mrs. Nlpsh had run out to glvo an
alarm. Keck followed and caught her,
dragged her back Into tho house and
threw her upon the floor. Picking up
his gun, he shot her, the load taking
effect in the back of her head, crashing
through the skull and penetrating the

It was two hours after tho murder
when Nipsh reached Druckeiiinillcr's
home. A party went to NIpsh's house
and found Keck there. He hud returned
to sue the remit of his work. He was
put under arrest, and under a guard was

the city should arrive.
In tho oveniugn hundred men entered
the house and took Keck out, intending
to hang him to the nearest tree. They
were dissuaded, however, by Mrs. Joseph
Masonheiinor, u daughter of his victims,
who besought them not to wreuk their
vengeance upon the murderer, but to
let the law punish him.
