LADIE8' AND MISSES' BLOUSE.
Some of our patrons have quite a mistaken
idea concerning these 'garments, and are under
theMmpression that they were designed only
for House-wear, Picnics, etc. True, nothing
could be more appropriate than these garments;
they are cool, comfortable, convenient and at
the same time pretty. But they are also a very
fitting street garment, and are quite as popular
for street wear in Eastern and Northern cities
as the tight-fitting waists.

Fort Smith, Ark., May 1. Death
sentence was passed today in the United
States Court on Jack Spaniard, Frank
Cape), William Walker, Joe Martin and
Elsie James, all for murder committed
in Indian Territory. Judge Parker
made a departure by naming Wednes
day (insteady of Friday), July 17.
Spaniard is a half-breed Cherokee,
and in appearance is the ideal brigand.
Deputy Marshal Irwin had arrested
young Griffin for horse-stealing and
had started with him to Fort Smith.
Griffin's mother hired Spaniard to fol
low the officer and release her son.
After a 20-milo ride ho overtook the
office and prisoner, killed the officer
and recovered his prisoner. It was in
this case that a dog was introduced in
the court. When Spaniard is hanged,
his will be the fourth human lifo sacri
ficed in this case.
Frank Capel killed his girl through
jealousy. His mother died of crief.
His father attended the trial, and died
suddenly on learning of his son's con
viction, and, when Frank is hanged,
his will be the fourth life on that one
William Walker, colored, is a plain
murderer of the brutal type. He killed
Elsio James in a full-blooded Chiok-
asaw, and is the second woman sen
tenced here for murder. Tho sentence-
was repeated to her by an interpreter,
through whom she made a vigorous de
nial and protest, meanwhile talking
rapidly and earnestly in her own lan
guage. The oaso mado against her was
that Elsie and her sister killed a hired
roan in his sleep and hid his body in a
grove in the brush.
A Damaging Storm.
Boniiam, Tex., April 30. A tf rrifio
wind and hail storm parsed over the
northern part of this county laBt night
covering a territory of about twenty
five square miles. Every vestige of
growing cotton and corn was totally
destroyed entailing a loss of thousands
of dollars. Many farmers were in town
to-day buying seed for replanting. No
lives are reported lost but the damage
to crops, fenoes and fruit trees exceeds
that caused by any other storm within
the past ten years. The storm came
from a northwest direction and was
most severe where it first struck the
county, gradually spreading out and
losing its strength as it progress.

Indianapolis. Ind., April 27,-Dur-
ing a hearing this evening of the con

Treasurer Miller, County Asylum Su
perintendent Williams and others be
fore federal Commissioner Van Burcn,

N Harding, prosecuting witness, tes
tified that tho paupers, including the
idiots, nave long been voted as so
many cattle, and it was so under Mr.
Williams' predecessors, when the in
stitution was in Republican hands.
He bIbo testified that ono pauper was
shoved into tho ohute and forced to
vote. A largo number of witnesses
have been summoned for this cxamina
tion, and among them is one who will
swear that the vote of one puuper, who
gave bis name as Jesus Christ, was re
ceived and deposited under-protest.
