A MAIDEN'S LOVE.
Devotion of tho AfUancod of Young
Sullivan, Who Foil at tho
IIku'1 of Shook.
Pitliutic Scenes Witnessed on the Eve oi
Departure for the Home of
Inconsiderate Treatment of the Young
Woman Whose Love of Fun
Caused the Tragedy.
Sr.Lons, Mo., March 18. There Tvas
s pathetic little romance connected with
tlio Shook-Sullivan murder, which lias
hitherto been crowded into the back
ground by the more obtrusive facts of the
stabbin?, the death and the Coroner's in
quest. Sullivan as very popular in the
PiH'ial circle in which he moved, and be
twei n him and a demure, bright-eyed little
lady, who occupies a position of sales
lady in one of the leading Fourth street
nouses, there existed an attachment
which proved its strength during the few
days that tlapt-ed between the wounding
and the death. They had been be
trothed for several months, and
but for the tragedy the wedding
would probably have occurred
within the present year. The news of the
stabbing reached the store, where the
young lady was employed, a couple of
hours after it occurred, and the young
lady, with almost the pallor of death up
. on her, asked for a brief leave of absence,
which was granted. She hurried at once
to her lover's side, ami through the con
sideration of Dr. Dean was permitted to
enter the hospital with him. she minis
tered to his wants and was overjoyed
when he was so far improved as to speak
to her and tell of his appreciation of the
love which led her to do so much for him,
regardless of the criticism of society. When
the relapse came and be died, she was al
most crazed; and it was with dhlicultv she
could be separated from the corpse. The
young man's fatherarrived here from New
York on the, day of the death, and deter
mined to take the body back to the old
home in the Kast for Interment. Tiiis
was sad news for theyounz lady, who had
felt that it would at leat be' her poor
privilege to visit his grave at times. She
arranged, then, that she be permitted to
accompany the oody to New l'ork and to
attend the funeral, which request the old
geiitleiiiau very gladly irranted, feeling
natura'.ly a retard lor her because of her
love for his son. Accor, ingly .-he secured
an extension of her leave of absence, w hich
was wiiliiiitiy granted by h. remplnyers in
view of the circumstances, and early last
evening she arrived at Smitlu-r's under
taking establishment equipped for the
trip. The bo iy had been very handsomely
encased preparatory to shipment, and w as
surrounded by nearly 2X young people, a
majority cf whom were ladies and g;rl.
The scene was a most extraordinary one.
Close to the coilia stood Mi-s Nah, the
young lady whose innocent joke had b en
the prime cause of the tragedy. She has
suffered intensely ever since the stabbing,
realizing a she dots that she was the un
intentional cause of it all, and she had
wept so violently and continuou-!y that
her nervous system is greatly struir.t-J..
She must hare expeeted that
in visiting the place where
the body lay and accompanying it
to the depot, he was exposing herself to
remarks from h'.s friend who would be
gathered there, but this did not deter her.
The feeling had been quite strong against
her ever since the affray, for friends are
not always reasonable in such cases, but
the sentiment of hostility was grealy in
tensitkd by her prt-j-euec at such a "time
and by the sitiht of the suffering' of the
other young lady, iu whom, of course, all
interest and sympathy centered. The ex
pressions toward her, then ore, were far
from kindly, and the comments of sym
pathy for one of the youni' ladies and' in
dignation amin-t the other were most in
congruous. Shortly ufterone o'clock the
remains were taken to the depot, follow ed
by the large crowd, and there Uic scenes
of the undertakimr establishment
were repeated. The mourners
and their charge went Kast bv
the Vamlalia, and the funeral wiil
probably take place on Thursday in
The case against Shook, who com
mitted the homicide, is a very curi
ous one, and there is room for great
conjecture as to its outcome. Owing
to the fact that Coroner Nldelet, con
trary to all precedent, and for some in
explicable cause, excluded from the con
sideration of the jury, not only the dying
statement of Sullivan, but he admis
sions which Shook made to the ollicers
w ho arrested him, the jury were bound to
render the verdict that Su'llivan'rectived
his fatal injuries at tho hands of an un
known party. Sullivan, shortly before
dying, expressed, it is said, the wish
that there be no prosecution, and
by the other fact that tho younr man's
father is disposed to be linif-iit also,
fraying that it would afford him little con
solation fur his son's death to know that
another youth had been hung for it.

Charlie Foster Played Out by Hia Own
Washington, D. C, March 18. "Any
good Uepnbllcan can carry Ohio." Tho
speaker was 1 II. Powliug, the Post
master at Toledo. Mr. Dowllng was sur
rounded by a group of Ohio politicians,
who were discussing the prospects of tho
different Presidential candidates. Con
tiuuiug, he said: "Our delegation will go
to Chicago unpledged. It is my caudld
opinion that no delegate will be sent to
the Convention who is known to have
the slightest prejudice against the differ
ent gentlemen who will contend for Its
suffrages. Sherman Is our first choice,
but r.laine, or Logan, or Arthur can be
elected. Charlie Foster says we cannot
elect Arthur. That Is not so. We can
and will elect him if he receives the nomi
nation, loster can not speak with any
assurance on this subject, for he has no
following to speak of, and misrepresents
the sentiments of our people with refer
ence to Arthur."
Another gentleman, who was present,
said: "Foster has lost his grip in Ohio.
Unlike his bosom friend, K. H. Hayes,
Foster could not now be elected to
the position of ltoad Commissioner.
He used to ito to the Methodists and
tell them his sympathy with the tern
porauce movement had alienated the
rewers, and then he would say to
the brewers that his opposition to an in
tolerant Prohibition law, lutti drawn
down upon him the hostility of the
Methodist Church. In short, he Is a
political trimmer, whose methods suc-
eeded for a time, until his duplicity
'ecame known, and then he was in
continently dropped bv both parties.
He will be a candidate In-fore the State
Convention for a delesate-Rt-larsre. His
friends are urging him to withdraw, but
Ido not think he will heed their advice. I
look to ce him beaten out of siiiht."
Wasiui;hn, I). C, March 1.
Cohuiel U. G. Ingersoll has been invited
to make the opening address at the meet
ing of inventors to be held in Cincinnati
on the 27th iut. The convention will be
one of the most important industrial and
mechanical meetings ever held iu this
country. Every Inventor can be a del
egate. The object sought will be to pro
mote the interests of inventors by pro
ducing a community of feeling among
them. The Anderson bill abolishing the
patent laws, which recently passed the
House, will be a leading object of
discussion, and every effort will tie
made to create a sentiment which
will prevent its paiu2 the Senate. S aid
i well-known inveiitorthis evening: "The
farmers in Kan -as complain because they
are forced to pay -35 for an artesian-well
invention, and compel Anderson to intro
duce a bill abolishing the patent laws.
Not one of these farmers would do away
with the In n- tits of the invention for
twenty times the amount. An inventor
should be paid for his brains the same as
a lawyer or preacher, and our fathers
were risht to make liberal laws to protect
him. In this way the accumulated brains
of the world have been forced to the
United States, and we are enabled to sell
arm produce and manufactured goods
even in countries w here cheap labor and
good lands are abundant."
The Cattle Disease in Iowa.
HntuxiiTox, Ia., March I. A Tl'iirk-
eye, special from Wapello, Louisa County,
Iowa, gives the result of a special Investi
gation of the disease prevailing among
the cattle at that point, which may be
briefly summarized as follows: About
half a mile west of Wapello J. C. Drake
has on his farm about fifty head of cattle.
Miortly after the extreme cold weather
in the early part of January he noticed
on some oi ins cattle a swelling oi
the hind feet, generally the left. He
ascribed it to the extreme cold, and
thought and still thinks that the animals
thus affected had their feet frozen. The
affected limb soon became stiff and sub
sequently the hoof loosened and came off
thus. 1 he disease affects only the hind
feet, and no sign of disease is perceptible
in the mouth. After becoming affected
the animals, though continuing to
eat, waste away and display a pe
culiar weakness across the t small
of the back. At the present time
some twenty-five head, mostly young cat
tle, are thus affected, and some have died.
Some of the oldest cattlemen in the vicin
ity agree with Mr. Drake that the cause
of the disease is frozen feet, while others,
equally competent, insist that it is the
foot-and-mouth disease. The Governor
has been called upon to send a competent
man to investigate. The people iu the
vicinity are greatly excited, and the situ
ation is such that prompt action is con
sidered of prime necessity. There are
no signs of disease outside the herd men
tioned. Jailed for Murder.
S.w.r.M, Iu,., March is. The Coroner
of Marion County bus returned from Cen
tralia with David Hell (colored; ami
placed him in jail. Hell shot a negro in
Centralia last Saturday night, aiid the
Hutu died in a few minutes, (ireut ex
citement prevailed over the murder, and
it was with diiliculty that the people
could prevent a lynching.

- Perhaps not one person in a hundred
knows why a point thirty-two degrees be
low the freezing point on Fahrenheit's
thermometer is called zero. For that mat
ter, nobody knows. The Fahrenheit scale
was introduced in 1730. Like other thcr-
mometric scales, it has two fixed points
the freezing point, or rather the melting
point of ice, and the boiling point of
water. The centigrade and Reamur call
the freezing point zero, and measure there-
frem in both directions. This is a very
natural arrangement. Fahrenheit kept the
principle on which he graduated his ther
mometers a secret, and no ono has ever dis
covered it. It is supposed, however, that
he considered his zero thirty-two degrees
below freezing the point of absolute cold
or absence of all heat, either because, being
about the temperature of melting salt and
snow, it was the greatest degree of cold he
could produce artificially, or because it was
the lowebt natural temperature of which
he could find any record. Tho grounds on
which Fahrenheit put 180 degrees between
the freezing points arc likewise unknown.
I desire to say to the public, through the
medium of your paper, that I have had
Mr. J. Wagley Hill and Capt. Lem Hill in
my employ for months, and that I have al
ways found them to be honorable and hon
est iu business transactions; and that J.
Wagley Hill as clerk, and Lem II. Hill as
master, have always been faithful and at
tentive to their duties, to my entire satis
faction. And as to the low, cowardly vil
lains that havo been guilty of posting bills
in and around the city defaming the char
acters of my friends and family, I will say
that every effort will bo made to ferret out
the guilty party, and that I will hold him
personally accountable to me for the act.
As to Mr. Porter's statement, I will say
that I was an eye-witness, and that Mr.
John Hill did not point tbo g-in at Mr.
Porter or flourish it about; but simply held
Mr. Porter in check from shooting his
brother. I am fully convinced, from Mr.
Porter's statement to me, that he intended
to shoot Capt. Hill; and I fully justify
John in his action in tho matter.
