Dkl Kio, Tkx., May 2. A ('ycloiie
came from the west and struck this town
Wednesday evening between six unc

were tilled with men, women audchlldret
and they were tossed and turned lu al.
directions. The new Episcopal Church,
the Southern l'ueilic saloon and a num

swept away. Many other buildings wer
twisted out of shape. There were fivt
persons severely injured, and one.

fury of the wind may be imagined whet
It is stated that a heavy train of thirty
eight stock cars was rushed down the
track at lightning speed, although the

McHugh, the Wife Murderer, Hanged
Cincinnati, U., May 2. At an early
hour this morning people began to con
gregate in the vicinity of the County Jai
to witness the execution of William Mc
Hugh, the w ife murderer. By ten o'clock
there were probably five thousand per
sons outside of the walls, on the house-top-,
and in the windows of surrounding
buildings. Everything was orderly, there
being no demonstrations whatever.
At S:40 o'clock Father Urady went into
McIIugh's cell to give such spiritual con
solation as lay in his power. At 9:2C
the Kev. Father came out and said that
McHugh w as in a remarkably quiet frame
of mind. At 9 :40 he ate his last meal on
At ten o'clock Sheriff Hawkins and a
deputy entered the cell and read the death
warrant. During the reading McHugh
simply paced back and forth in silent
emotion. At 10:07 the procession arrived
at the gallows, headed by the Sheriff.
The doomed man was then put in posi
tion on the trap to be pinioned and the
rope loosely adjusted about his ueck, after
which the question ; "Have you anything
to say?" was put.
He" replied: "Good-bye, friends."
The rope was then tightened and the
black cap drawn, aud a moment later the
drop fell. There were no contortions of
the limbs or evidence of great suffering.
At 10:22 the body was still hanging, but
at 10:30 it was cut down, placed in a neat
rosewood collin and takeu charge of by
Undertaker Underbill and prepared for
During the time the body was hanging
Mrs. McHugh, the mother, was seen to

THE TKKADWAV UIKLES.
They Go to Houston, Texas, to Tread
away With the Big Stakes.
Sr. Louis, Mo., May 2. This evcnlng'g
Pust-DixiHitch says: The Tread way Hides,
Co. D, Third Regiment, N. G. M., fifty
strong, leave the city this evening for
Houston, Tex., where they will compete
with the crack iufautry companies of the
South and West for a $5,000 prize. The
Treadways will be followed to-morrow
night by tho llusch Zouaves, the Rain
Zouaves and a section of Battery A, St.
Louis Light Artillery,who also go Into com
petitive drills. This Is an eveut which has
been looked forward to for a long time by
the military of the city, and the outcome
of the venture will be watched with tho
greatest interest by tho friends of tho
companies mentioned. These companies
have been drilling nightly for the past
six weeks, and they have each attained
a high order of perfection. Tho Tredways
are now the best drilled body of men St,
Louis has ever had. They arc as perfect ia
the manual and In company evolutions as
they can well be, nnd If they fall to carry
r,.nm mvay from Houston It will
be because they are not as haudsomely
equipped as their competitors. They
will go down with their old uniforms, Improve-.!
only by the w hite fox-skin shakos.
Their rilles have been kindly loaned to
them by tho First Regiment, which fact
is, In itself, an evidence of the har
mony existing between tho two
regiments. The Tredways have been
a llrst-class company for the last
two years, their fame as such having
been secured by the winning of a 2,000
prize at Toledo, Ohio, where they were
pitted against the best companies of the
States which assist In every way in the
maintenance of militia. In the New Or
leans military contest a year ago the
Tredways would have won the prize but
for the fact that their muskets were old
and out of order, aud their uuiforms were
not In the best condition. This com
pany leaves to-night in order that
they may become thoroughly ac
customed to the field iu which
they are to drill at Houston next Wed
nesday. Every man Is permeated with a
lever to earn for St. Louis and his com
pany the honor of winning the big prize,
which, by the way, Is the largest ever of
fered at a prize drill in this country, and
this ambition will no doubt go a long
way toward securing the company's suc
cess. They w ill be under the command
of Captain C. F. Walbrldge, and will be
accompanied by their patron, Mr. Dwlght
Nuptials on a Street-Car -A Mother Ob
jects. Atlanta, Ga., May 2. The Rev. Virgil
Norcross, a IJaptist clergyman of this
city, to-day boarded a street-car for
Jamestown, where he was to perform a
marriage ceremony. He found In the
car Mr. John Stewart, a prominent
butcher, accompanied by Miss Dora
"Here you are, Mr. Norcross," said
Stewart, "I have been looking for you all
"Well, what's wanted?" asked the
"I want to get married," was the
answer, "to this young lady. Can't
you marry us right here on the car?"
Upon the minister assenting, the other
passengers were greatly astouished by
the couple stauding up and holding the
car-straps to keep lrom falling, repeat
ing the vows which made them one. The
apparently happy couple then left the
car, afjer receiving the congratulations
of their fellow passengers.
where lie was to unite In marriage Mr.
Dawson Blaine to Miss Annie Sesterlle,
at the residence of the bride's mother,
the Rev. Mr. Norcross found a large com
pany present, anxiously awaiting his ar
rival. The couple soon entered the room
and began repeating the marriage vows.
When the minister reached that part of
the ceremony in which he asked if anyone
present knew of any reason why the couple
should not be joined In marriage, the
bride s mother arose and said: "1 object
to the wedding. She is my daughter, and
iny consent has not been asked." This
declaration threw the company into great
excitement, aud Mr. Norcross was about
returning the marriage license to the
groom, but before his hold upon it had
been relinquished the mother said:
"Well, I guess it's all right; let the mar
riage go on." Mr. Norcross completed
the ceremony, and the mother seemed as
happy as any one present.

day. That morning Mr. Christian re
ceived a letter from the lady, stating
that she had fled tho country

ment for the marriage approached, her

ardice that she could not meet it. She in
closed five dollars to pay for Christian's

her In Oconee County, She fell upon his

HAHi-Kit, Kas., May 2. The men who
endeavored to rob the Medicine Lodge
Bank and shot and killed the cashier, aud
mortally wounded the President, rode fast
after their deed was done, but the posse
following them rode faster and harder,
and overtook the fugitive murderers
about three miles from Harper late
Wednesday evening. When the posse
came upon them they made a show of re
sistance, but were captured without much
difficulty and taken to the Harper jai)
amid great rejoicing and much excite
ment. The entire county was out when tht
captives arrived, and no sooner had the
jail doors closed upon them than the
mutterings of approaching trouble be
gan to become loud and an omin
ous activity took possession of the
populace all of a sudden. There were
the usual stimulating spirits to increase
the excitement, and the ciii authorities
were on guard near tho jafTall evening.
Kvery one seemed determined to remain
up longer on Wednesday evening that
usual, aud the usual rumors of the pur
chase of several yards of stout hemp
rope served to keep the ball of excitement
At ten o'clock the populace seemed ta
come from all directions towards the jail,
and the thoroughfares surrounding thai
institution were crowded with people,
who talked of vindicating outraged jus
tice. The mob organized quickly and at
attack was made on the jail. The oltlcer:
made a resistance strong enough to in
crease the determination of the mob, but
not strong enough to make any gaps ir

had been silenced a dozen or more shooting-irons
were leveled at hiin, aud he fell
to the floor and expired with his boots
on, and his body full of bullet holes. The
other three murderers of the gang wera
cornered before they could make any re
sistance. Pistols were placed to theit
heads aud their hands were bound behind
them. Then it became known who the
robbers were Henry Brown, City Mar

of Caldwell, Kas., and John Westry and
Billy Smith, typical cowboys from the In
dian Territory. All the ineu were well
known and their reputation was as bad

The three bound men were led out of
the jail surrounded by the mob in a state
of wild excitement. The march was un
exciting, as the prisoners of the people
were kept in a state of submission by
pistols pointed at their heads. One of
them weakened and showed the white
feather so conspicuously that he had to be
shoved along the wagon-road leading out
of town. His pleas for mercy and re
quests that the mob would think of cer
tain of his relatives were drowned by re
marks to the effect that he would get
what he had given and he'd better keep
stepping or he would not be in at the end
of the march.
A short time was spent in the march
when a clump of trees loomed up on the
edge of the town limits and a couple of
couriers went on before. Arrived at
the trees the proper ones were Elected

of the men died game. The mob did not

Polishing' the Wrong End.
Many men daily polish their boots who
never give a thought to the condition of
their hair, except to harrow it casually with
brush and comb, or submit it to the para
lyzing attentions of the average barber.
Vh:.t happens? Why, this: From neglect,
mental anxiety, or any of a score of causes,
the hair turns permaturely gray and begins
to fall out. Parker's Hair Balsam will at
once stop the latter process and restore the
original color. Au elegant dressing, free
