always return heavily laden, and other
years the busy little workers scour the
country far and wide and gather little
honey. It has been two or three years

reduction of the ores, the work will

A Plucky Widow.
An attempt to rob and assault Mrs.
Vance Smith, a prepossessing widow of
Sedalia, was thwarted at an early hour
the other morning by the ladyV brav
ery. She lives alone, and a couple of
days previous to the incident rented a
furnished room toa man who gave the
name of Harris. After the midnight
honr a rap at the front door aroused
the lady, and. on asking who was
there, the reply was made: "I am the
new roomer and want in." A few
minutes later Mrs. Smith beard a
strange noise in the roomer's apart
ment, and soon became con
vinced that he was rumaging the
bureau drawers. About the same time
a man on the outside was endeavoring
to gain an entrance 'through a rear
window. Seizing a revolver that was
beneath her pillow, Mrs. Smith fired
two shots at the prowler, which caused
him to beat a hasty retreat She then
threw open the window shutters and
jumped into the yard, taking her two
children with her. and fired two more
shots to attract the attention of her
neighbors. By this time the man in
Harris room had succeeded in demol
ishing the door and fled down street
It has developed that it was a well
posted stranger whom Mrs. Smith had
admitted, sapposing him to be Harris.

Narrow tannt of thirds Kaseuulllatn.
Cl.EVELASD, Aug. 7. Tre.in NdL of
tls: lke Shore railroad left here Sat
crday night for Chicago on time. The
tvaln was composed of three coaches,
three baggage cars and five sleepers.
It left Fremont ten minutes late and
was running at a high rate of speed for
Toledo. When the train was about
ten miles out of Fremont, at a rmall
station called Lindsay, the sleeping can
left the track and crashed into a freight
train that waa waiting on a siding for
the passenger train to pass. The first
part of the train got by in safety but
the sleeping cars rolled over the tie
quite a distance, finally swerved from
thebf jcourse and bit the engine of the
freight train with tremendous fores. .
The noise of the collision a roused
the people of the little town, and-they
soon surrounded the wreok ready to
aid the unfortunate passengers, whose
roans could be heard amid the noise
of theVscapingsteam and pandemonium
that ensued by the destruction' of the
locomotive. The sleeping cars were
practically reduced to kindling wood
and that anyone escaped fo a miracle.
Three persons were killed outright
and a number seriously injured.
Telegrams were at once sent to Fre
mont for medical aid. ami a coach left
that city within half an hour bearinif
physicians to the scene of the disaster.
In the meantime the train i rew. aided
by the eitizeus of the little town. le
gan to remove the debris and ruins
that covered the track. 1'i.deriicatli
the wreckage could be seen the victims
of the accident and the groans of the
more seriously hurt were pitiful.
Here and there an arm or a ley pro
truded and little pools of blood that
oozed from underneath the shattered
timbers told the sad tale of i.nffcrin?
Manv people were buried in the
wreck who were not seriously injured.
their hurts consisted mostly of bruises
and scratches, and it was not a hard
task to free them from Cie heavy
beams that held them to t'ie earth.
They were taken care of by the town
physicians and were reedy o resume
their journey by the time the train
started again on its way to Toledtk.
Perhaps fifteen or twenty we-e mere or
less hnrt in that way whose names
were not given to the local ai thorities.
Ieeper in the wreck were the dead
and more seriously hurt The three
who were killed outright by ths col
lision were not removed from the
ruins until 9 o'clock. Ther were bur
ied under the engine and it was im
possible to do anything to aid thein
until a wrecking train had arrived.
Prof. B. II. Emerson, of Amherst col
lege, Gloucester, Mass., and the colored
porter, Pelmonn, were extricated after
a long struggle with the heavy iron
braces and the timbers of the sleeping
car, and they, were at onee taken to
houses ia tlte, village.. Prof. Emerson's
case was hopeless IroWi. the atarlr hia
chest being crushed beyond possibility
of recovery, and Pelmonn was in the
same condition, with no hope. .
The members, of the Chicago bare
ball club were in the Cleveland sleeper,
which was the last one on the train.and
to that fact they owe much of their im
munity from more serious injury. As
it was, Ryan, the center fielder of the
club, and Kittridge. the best catcher,
were cut badly and bled profusely.
Other members of the team were brnisr
ed and cut, but not so as to interfere
with the continuance of their journey.
A special train left Toledo soon after
the report of the accident, with Lake
Shore officials on board, to make a
thorough examination of the track and
ascertain what caused the wreck. The
only theory given is that the rails
spread and let the heavy sleeping car?
through the switch.

Lot isvu.i.k, Ky. Aug. t. A special
from Corydon. Ind.,' brings the start- ;
ling news of the slaughter erf a lynch-:,
ing party by two men whom they were
trying to lynch for the m order of their
father. The fearful affray took place
near Laconia, about sixteen miles from
this place, on Satunlay night
Four men were instantly killed, one
fatally wounded and several others
more or less injured. William and Sam
Conrad were the murderers whom the
mob intended to string np. Several
weeks ago the father of these men was
foully murdered. His dead body was
1 found In a wood with hbsknil crashed..

are desperate characters. . They were
arrested, baton their preliminary hear
ing were discharged for want of err
drnee. Indignation ran high among the
people ond Saturday night a mob
gathered for the purpose nf lynching
the Conrads. The honse where - the
men lived was attacked, but the Con
rads had been warned and were pre
pared. As that mob advanced on the
honse they ponred a deadly volley into
Its ranks. Four men- dropped dead in
their tracks and several fell wounded.
The Conrads then fled while the un
harmed were caring for the dead and
dying. The four men killed are:
John Timberlake. .
- Will Wiseman. '
Isaac Howe. '
Will May was fatally wounded.
Excitement runs high. Armed bands
are sconring the conntry for the Con- -rads.
If caught they will be instantly
At the preliminary trial of the Con
rad boys for murdering their father,
it was elaimed that- while -ont in the
woods chopping wood a dispute arose
among tnem in which the old man was
killed by the sons. The brothers
claimed at the trial that the old man
fell against the stove in their honse
and sustained injuries which 'caused
his death. Mrs. Conrad's testimony
was in favor of the boys' story, and
while it was generally believed that
they were guilty the justice could do
nothing under the circumstances bnt
Since that time the feeling against
.the Conrads has been growing stronger,
and they had received several - letters
from whitecaps warning them to leave
the neighborhood or suffer the conse
quences. They did not obey the re
quest, but, on the contrary, said they
would be prepared for any visitation
from the night raiders. Several days
ago a barn and its contents belonging
to a man named F rakes, residing near
the Conrads. was bnrned, and the Con
. rads were accused of the act This
they denied. Iast vrerlr they marier a
trip to Elizabeth, Harrison county, and .
purchased a large supply of. buckshot
in anticipation of a whitecap visitation,
as they hail just received another
notice couched in stronger terras, in
which it was threatened that in addi
tion to being switched on the bareback
they would be hanged. "! ''
When the gang approached and
stepped on the porch they demanded
admittance. At that instant the Con
rads fired. Their bullets fonnd lodg
ment in the bodies of the mob, and
two men fell deail on the porch. Twc
others were found several hours later
a few hundred yards distant from the
house, stone dead. AH, it is said, were
well-to-do farmers in that section.
Howe was 30 years old and leaves a fam
ily. He was a brother of John Howe,
who is a 4. bartender in James Harbe
son's saloon on West Main street, in
New Albany. He was constable of
Boone township and highly respected.
The home of the Conrads is in the
very wilds of Harrison county and
almost inaccessible to the county seat.
Corydon. It is near Ihe river and a
mile distant from any other habitation
on the banks of Mosquito creek. A
rough wagon road, which is almost
impassable, leads past the honse.
Another report was brought to New
Albany by James Wolpert, who resides
on East Thirteenth and Spring streets,
and who was visiting Saturday in
Elizabeth, several miles south of Con
rads' honse. He was seen at night by
a Commercial reporter. . He says that
after the Conrads had received warning
of the visit, they hid themselves
under a porch in the front part of the
honse. They had made several augur
holes in the flooring of the porch
through which the in lizzies of theirguns
could be thrnst and fired at close range
with deadly execution.
Houston was the son of Rer. W. F.
Houston and was about 28 years old
ami unmarried. Rev. Houston was
killed almnt fifteen years ago in a run

over him and mashing his skull.

crowd, and was about SI years of age
