Shot Irani Ambimh.
Texahkaxa, July 10. At half past
11 o'clock last night Tobe Baretiold
while standing In front of tho Trian
gle saloon, a few feet from the state
hue In Arkansas, was fired upon by
some unknown party with a shot gun
from the rear of Goldborg's store, on
the Texas side, and dangerously, per
haps fatally, wounded. Four buok
shot took effeot, two in the left arm,
one Under the left breast. Efforts to
ascertain who did the shooting have
so far been fruitless. During yester
day Barefleld had brutally beaten
Shorty Campbell and afterward con
tinued drinking and taking in the
town. The city marshal on the Tex
as side attempted to arrest him, but
Barefleld fled to Arkansas and was
fired at by the officer. Shortly after
this ho received the charge of buck
shot near the state line.

How to Eat a Matermelon.
A watermelon, -even though it be a
6o-pounder, is not intended to be de
voured in public, nor is one watermel
on, no matter what its weight may be,
more than enough for o'ne healthy per
son. This fact is probably well known
to every country school boy. The
art of eating a watermelon and keeping
cool is as simple now as it was in the
days of long ago. The rind should
be slit with a short-bladed knife, so
that when the melon is divided the
heart of it shall rest in one ot the
halves in one lucious, juicy lump.
The knife should then be carefully
wiped and then put m the pOcket.
Then the coat should be taken off and
the sleeves rolled up. Plunge the right
hand under one end of the heart and
the lelt hand under the other; lift the
dripping mass to the mouth and fall
to. The juice will trickle down your
arms and saturate your face, but what
of it f 1 here is plenty and to spare,
though the feast is the rarest to be
found on earth.
Sight Restored by Prayer.
Galena, III. Julv 18. N.ews has
received here of a remarkable case of
restoration of sight experienced by
Miss O'ace Lambert, a teacher of Gen-
eseo, in the adjoining county of
Whiteside, this state, who was totally
blind for nearly four years. Her case
had been treated by the best oculists
in the country, but wholly without
benefit. She suffered the most in
tense pain, her eyes seeming to her
like balls of fire, and life became al
most'unenburable. Three days ago
a friend of the young lady, who was
a devout Christian, advised her to
pray for the restoration of her sight.
The friend insisted npon anointing
the eyes with oil as the Bible passage
imtiucts. and then made an impassion
ed prayer for the sight of the voune
woman. Miss Lambert then becan to
think about the efficacy of prayer and posite side, entered the cab and stop,
engaged in supplication to God for ' ped the train. Just as he did so the
relief. After nraying for some time 'conductor threw a large stone, which
she felt a peculiar shock, and at once striking the crazy man on the head,
found that lur eyesight had been re-'cut it open and knocked him sense

Terrifying Exploit ofn Mnilmaii on n
PiiMMcnser Train 111 Mnrjluml.
Baltimore, Md., July 17. The
thrilling sensation of riding on a train
with a maniac at the throttle was ex
perienced bv several hundred persons
jesterday on the Shenandoah Valley
railroad. It was fortunate that but
few of them knew in whose hands
their-lives were for a period of about
ten minutes, or there would have been
a panic. There had been an excur
sion froir.jpoints along the Shenandoah
Valley railroad to Penmar, on the
Blue Ridge Mountain, in Western
Maryland. The Shenandoah road con
nects with the Western Maryland rail
road at Hagerstown. It was about 8
o'clock injthe evening, the lamps on
the train had just been lighted and
locomotives changed at Hagerstown.
The conductor was engaged taking up
tickets on the rear cars of the train,
w-hen he heard a wild shriek forward.
Then the train stopped suddenly.
Many of trje passengers were alarmed,
but the conductor hurriea through.not
.knowing what was the matter himself.
In the baggage ''car the conductor
met the engineer and the fireman.
Their faces were blanched with terror.
Just then the train begain to move
"What will we do !" exclaimed the
engineer; there is a madman in the
cab; he drove us out at the point of a
pistol, and we climbed over the tender,
expectirg every moment to be killed."
The engineer had stopped the train
before being driven out of the cab,
but the crazy man had now learned
how the throttle Worked. There was
not a moment to be lost. The tram
was moving slowly, all the brakes be
ing hard down. The conductor and
engineei jumped off, and being un
armed picked up large stones, and
tunning up to the side of the lo omo
tive ordered the madman down. He
merely glared at them and cursed
them; then he drew his pistol and be
gan firing. The engineer had by this
. time climerl over ihf trw .,. '
had been killed, but he soon recover-1
ed. The lunatic was Henry Martin '
as to show the modest observer exact
ly where the stays begin and where
they end: there is no longer an; con
cealment about, the matter. Now, 1
think this is a mistake.
