Ciromdelct, Mo. , Dec. S. Tbe disap
pearance of the Rev. Jacob Scblittler from
bli homo, on Broadway and Haven utreet,
South St. Loula, last Wednesday, and tbe
altnultaneoui disappearance of bla pretty
step-daughter, Annie Weaterroan, baa
caused a great deal of surmise and talk in
the neighborhood. When the facta, a pre
tented below, come to tbe knowledge of
the people ot Carondelet there will be a
bowl of indignation, which the reverend
clergyman will not fatte. Hearing of tbe
mysterious departure of the two, a report
er Investigated the case, and found tbe fol
lowing to be the real reason of hit depart
Tbe Rev. Jacob Schlitter moved to Ca
rondelet from Chicago eight years ago, .and
met, wooed and married a widow named
Weatermann, a woman of considerable
properly, She berself was very pretty, and
tbe fact that ahe bad several children wai
atoned for by tbe possession of several
bouses, iu one of which, on tbe corner of
Broadway and Haven street, tbe couple
have been living since. Scblitter persuad
ed Mrs. Weslermann that be was In con
stant personal cootaet with tbe spirit
world, and that be occasionally bad re
ceived messages straight from tbe lips of
God Almighty. She was weak and he waa
knavish; tbe result was more than a slavish
control; sbe looked on ber husband as
more than moral, and subscribed readily to
all be asked. Scblitter united
QUACKERY WITH RELIGION.
He manufactured nostrums and preached
the gospel, managed tbe widow's proper
ty and acquired a reputation for ascetic
virtue, and that sort of thing, that would
have been credit to tbe St. Anthony, ot tbe
Desert. Annla Westerman, tbe widow's
daughter, In these years had shot up Into
beautiful girlhood. Not sixteen, sbe was
willowy, fair and fascinating. A form
budding into roundness, a peachy skin,
soft eyes, floating hair, were among the
temptations daily put before tbe eyes of tbe
sixty-year-old preacher. Annie's pretty
face and figure had been noted admiringly
by tbe South St. Louis youths, but the old
gentleman waa very strict. He frowned
upon the suitors, and would sit in tbe par
lor with tbem, and tba young men saw it
It waa about this time that the Rev. Ja
cob Scblittler began to be moved by tbe spir
it to look after Annie'a eternal welfare.
Ghosts used to appearto him all over tbe
premises threatening him with hell fire If
Annie waa not snatched as a brand from the
burning. Her salvation seemed to be caus
ing something like a riot among the sheeted
dead, and the tastor nearly
SCARED HIS WIFE
into epilepsy by telling ber about these
things. Tbe two determined Annie must
be saved, and they set resolutely about the
task of saving her. Rev. Scblittler had
built a little oratory, which opened out ot
tbe parlor, and three timea a day Annit waa
brought into this oratory, where the clergy
man prayed with ber.
Remember that this ia nol a story from
the Decameron, but the cdld truth, es-
tabiiabftu by Schllttler's
ot the neigh-
his wife and the testimony
Supernatural manifestatians reduced
Mrs. Scblittler to a state of practical im
becility. Annie found tbe paths of good
nes pleasant to walk in, and for some
months everything went well. In tbe mid
dle watches of tbe night Scblittler would
arise and call t m unfortunate girl to de
votions. Her mother would applaud the
pair, and thank heaven for such a husband
and such a daughter. At last there came a
time, but acouple of weeks ago, when the
color on Annie'a eheeks flushed and paled
without reason. Her aunt, Mrs. Alstoroff,
called and at ouw inspected the truth. In
spite of berself tke girl was seized by her
mother and her aunt and
TRl TRUTH DISCOVERED.
Finally getting free from the aunt she
struck ber a blow In tbe face whicb sent her
reeling over a chair, and rushing into tbe
front room, half clad as she was, she threw
herself into ber stepfather's arms crying,
"protect me from mother and Aunt Alsto
roff." The two women following her in,
realized the situation at once, and the
mother fell in a dssd faint. The Rev. Ja
cob, as soon as She was testOred, confessed
bis crime and begged forgiveness. Annie
followed, confusing and asking pardon.
Tbe aunt began to denounce vigorously and
threatened tar and feathers. A scene fol
lowed and to jrtfe took tbe part of tbe err
ing husband and daughter and drove her
sister from the bouse.
It since develeps that the girl is com
pletely infatuated with ber aged step fath
er, and iwears that the will love him for
ever. Strange as it mty seem, Mrs.
Schlitter baa consented to her husband
taking his young paramour to Chicago,
where they will remaiu until tbe daughter
Isreiiofef to her usual health. To a
reporter yt-aterday ibe said: "God
forgives. Why should not If I love
I tOVl HIM.
He will take good eare of Annie. They
will come back all right." She bad lust
reaivd a letter from hor husband, whose
departure for Chicago wai made last Wed
nesday. He writes:
"Annie la doing as well as could be ex
pected. What do people say about us In
Carondelet?" He also says that he and
Annie are staying la Chicago with bli "la
ter, Mrs. Mary Heyder, No, 40 Mohawk
What it most remarkable Id tbe case ti
Mra. Sehllttler'a unbroken confidence Id
ber bMband'i purity. Wben he confessed
tt.at be must bave committed tbe crime
wben In a seml-unoonscloua state, sbe be
lieved him. She said to tba reporter that
tbe wai tura be did not propane to rua
away with Annie, and that there would
nevtr be any more criminal Intimacy be
tween bar buiband and daughter, for "Uod

bate be w mi IUt. 0. A. Carr, of Colum
bia, anu t ier 0. M. Thompson, of tbla
place, 'luetlrst named gentleman It a
member ot the Church of tbe Disciples, the
latter a member of the Baptlat denomina
tion. Tbe discussion took place in the
Christian church, there being In attend
ance from the opening bour, 10 a. m., a
large audienee of both ladies and gentle
men, aud all were much intereated In the
argumentative contest between tbe repre
sentatives or two denominations to power
ful In tbli purl of Miasourl. Tbe debate
continued until 4 o'clock in tbe evening,
each gentleman having made during tha
day hvf speeches upon tbe various phases
wbicli ibe topic assumed.
Elder Thompson held tba'. the holy
Su! Iptures teach that tbe giving of eternal
or spiritual life to tbe sinner dead In sin is
the work of Qod, Independent of the writ
ten wor I of tbe Scriptures. Mr. Carr con
troverted Mr. Thompson's proposition.
He beiievetl that tbe Holy Spirit operated
upon tbe sinner's heart, but be denied Ibat
It did so independently of tbe word.
With tbe statement of propositions the
battle began and tba gentlemen quoted
Scripture at each other, displaying remark
able Knowledge of the B.ble. They con
fined tketr debate strictly to tbe question
and frittered away no time on frlvalltii s.
Tbe audience appreciated all the points
made and some of tbe points were very
fine. Mr. Thompson used his
arguments upon the sovereignty
of Qod and held that tbe giv
ing of eternal life by the Scriptures would
be robbing God of his sovereignty. Mr.
Carr beld that if the Almighty needed to go
around bla own word to give eternal life,
there must be a reason for it, and he could
not see tbe reason. The debate wai fol
lowed out on this line all day and will be

before this, and was covered With blood,

Smythe was in no way connected with the

Pittsburg, Pa., Dec. 5. Rose grove
on the West Pennsylvania railroad, nine
miles fror Allegheny City, was the scene
yesterday afternoon of one ot the most
brutal and hotly contested hard glove prize
fights that ever took place In Western
Pennsylvania. The principals were Patrick
Moran aud James McCoy, and a buudred
and fourteen rounds were fought
in one bour and 80 min
utes. The fight has been on tbe
tapis several months and was for a purse of
$,!00. Both men are pugilists ot some re
pute, McCoy having fought several bat
tles in this vicinity, while Moran participa
ted in a number of fights in this country
and England. McCoy ia 27 years old and
Moran 51. Owing to the great difference in
age, it was thoufht the former would bave
an easy victory, and belting waa two to one
in favor of McCoy. Tbo encounter was to
bave taken place Thanksgiving
day, but was postponed for same
reason, and It was generally be
lieved to be off. This afternoon hundred
of sporting men left tbe city and arrived at
Rota srove at 8 o'clock. A ring waa
marked out, but no ropes put up, and at
t Ai time was called. At tbe beginning
McCoy broke his right wrist, and for tbe
rest of tbe battle fought with bli left hand.
Both men determined to win, and were
