Allegan, Mich., April 11. An in
cident has just become known which
gives very goncral satisfaction. A man
named- liurlbut, an employo at tho
paper mill, was takon from his Iioubo
Monday night by six women and
thrashed unmercifully with hickory
switches. Hurlbut has been in tho
habit of beating his wife upon the
slightest provocation. Ho had living
with him a young woman from Kala
mazoo and tho conduct of tho two had
been a shame and scandal to tho com
munity. Monday ovenini; a delosa-
gation of angry women who mado no at-
iuuipi u, uieguiso, ucauea uy a man woar
ing a mask, marohed into his house.
Tho man grabbed Hurlbut and in a
twinkling ho was out of tho house,
Tho culprit begged and prayed for re
lease, but until the womon woro tired
out ho was not allowed to go. His
mistress was thon informed that unless
sho left town shd would roccive similar
treatment, and sho loft.

San Antonio, Tex., April 11. Tho
oh (iso of tho would-be assassin of Bank
er J. S. Loekwood still continues, and
about all tho dotcctivos in this Bcotion
aro engaged, but tho hopo of catching
him grows less daily. It is regarded
as singular that a slender and inex
perienced dudo totally unacquainted
with tho country could havo oludod
pursuit and puzzled tho oldest offiocrs,
but this ho has done. Tho banker at
first offered $500 reward for his appre
hension, and has now increased it to
$2000, in tho hope o f engaging out
sido talont. It is thought tho would
bo assassin has novcr left the city, as
thero aro only thrco roads by which he
could go out, and tho dopots havo boon
voiy closely watched.
