his ullcgcel confession Bt.ncy 1101x4 to gain
the favor uf his korpei and cscujkj.

rdftr young preacher becauso of the trngio
death of hit beautiful wife. Tho crime
was heralded nbmnd as tho work of des
perate burglars, ond for sis weeks no sus
picion whatever was attached to tho
lint one man doubted his Innocence.
That was Harry O. Webster, a Danvillo
detective llo sold nothing, bat labored
sight and dny, and during the third week
In February ho applied for a warrant
charging W. E. ninshaw with murder.
The preacher's trial coramonccd Sept. 4,
18'J5, and continued until Oct. 8. Ksport
medical testimony went to show that it
would have been imposslblo for Mrs. Hln
shaw to have fought tho burglars aftur
having been shot through tho head.
The motive for the crime was supplied
by the attorneys for the prosecution, who
attempted to show that Hlnshaw had bo
coiue Infatuated with a handsomo young
woman of He lie villa, and the preacher's
own motions tended to further this theory.
Tho case made oat by the state was so
strong that Ulnshaw was convicted and
Sentenced to Imprisonment for Ufa.
The Cftse became a noted one. Many
doubted the guflt of the prisoner. Others
firmly boUevad that ba hod killed his wife
for the sake of the young woman tn ques
tion. Many things happened to bring the
case to light after Ulnshaw was taken to
the penitentiary, and when Baney's al
leged eonXosnlon was made a short time
ago there were hundred to say, "I told
, Jlasey arrt for a lawyer and made such
detailed statement of tho crime that
there seamed to be no doubt of its truth,
lie offered to go o rr the ground and
point out the action of himself and his
two alleged ooofedcrutea. Gay Tm Tassel
and KM Whitney, and for this purpose he
was released from the penitentiary under
guard for a period of Ave days. His ex
planation was so satisfactory that legal
steps were being taken to free the proach

Baney, It Is said, mado overtures to Hln

bility of jn&kltifj a confession, with the
hope of being enabled to escape from pris
on. Hinthaw furnished a plan of his
bouse and coached Daney in the details of
tho confession he was to make.
Ouo reinarkaMo feature of the case Is
the separation it caused between tho pa
rents of Mrs. Hlnshaw. Her father be
lieved tho preucher guilty of tho murder
of his daughter. Her mother did not.
Thl.t caused an estrangement, and they
were divorced about a month ago.

FEISCE GEORGE'S FLJETATI05.
Be Beeoowa Enamored of the Lovely
Princess Henry of Fleas, Greatly to the
deft-art -of His Lawful Spooae The
Frincees aa Inveterate Coquette.
Publlo curiosity In England has been
excited by the fact that the official an
nouncement which appeared In Tho Times
recently to the effect that tho, Duke of
York had been appointed to tho command
of a species of flying squadron, with the
ranK of coimnodorc, and that ho was
shortly to undertake a series of visits to
the variouB British colonies which would
keep him away from home and at sea for
six months, was followed a few days later
by an equally ollieinl announcement that
the duko had no intention whatsoever of
going to sea or of visiting the colonies.
These two contradictory notifications, fol
lowing so closely upon each other, are held
by the public to indicate dissension in the
royal household, and particularly In the
laniily of the Liuke of York.
a one of tho newspapers have, however,
dared to print tho following explanation
of the affair, which Is current In court cir
cles and a topic of much discussion in the
various clubs ond country houses. It
seems that tho Viceroy and Ledy Cadogan,
with tho object or rendering tho stay of
the Duke and Duchess of York at Dublin
as enjoyable as possible, hod Invited all
the most smart and dashing young mar-

RIXCESS HENRY OF PLES3.
Tied couples on their visiting list to form
the house party. Loveliest of all tho youth
ful matrons was the beautiful Princess
Henry of Pless, who, though the wife of ono
of the wealthiest and grandest of Angli
cized German noblemen, is an English
woman, the daughter of Mrs. Cornwall is
She Is Just as great a flirt and as invet
erate a coquette as her still most attractive
Irish mother, who 20 years ai;o shored
with Mrs. Langtry and Mrs. Sloan Stan
ley the distinction of being the three most
beautiful women of their day. The Prince
of Wales was devoted to all three, Mrs.
Stanley and Mrs. West being regarded as
the feminine leaders of what Is known as
the Prince of Wales' set, but it is only fair
to add that, although Mrs. West carried
her coquetry and her Irish love of fun end
mischief to the mott extreme limit, her
good name has never been impugned.
Perhaps the best proof thereof is that the
Princess of Wales has always been particu
larly kindly disposed toward Mrs. West.
Sirs. West's daughter, tho Princess Pless,
was at her very best nt Dublin, and was
far and away the most beautiful and elo
gant woman present, while the Duchess of
York was perhaps the lcabt lovely. Natu
rally tho duchess felt this and became irri
tated when she perceived that Princess
Henry had turned the bead not only of
all the men present, but also of her hus
band, the duke. With just a touch of fem
inine satisfaction at having awakened a
spark of interest and life in the heart of
Prince George, who has become the most
humdrum, uninteresting and dreary of
mortals since hi3 marriage, which seems
entirely to have crushed him, Princess
Henry set her cap at him in full form and
flirted with him ln such an outrageous
manner as to create a good deal of talk.
In fact, the royal visit ln Dublin does not
appear to have passed off without some
manifestation of wrath on the part of the
duchess, for Princess Henry was to have
been included in the royal house parties of
the Duke and Duchess cf Aberoem and of
Lord and Lady Londonderry, but did not
show rp at cither of their country seats.
It is asserted that this Princess Henry
episode has led to a good deal of bad blood
between the Duke and Duchess of York,
who have at no time been very devoted to
one another. Indeed so serious has been
the quarrel between the young couple that
the Prince of Wales felt himself compelled
to hurry home from the continent in order
td try to patch up matters. Naturally the
duchess complained of her husband's in
fatuation for Princess Henry, and it la al
leged that when the prince undertook to
expostulate with his sen abovt the matter
the latter nmaflM on him and exclaimed
that there was not s bit more harm ln his
flirtation with Princess Henry than there
hod been in that between his genial parent
and the mother of Princess Henry SO yean
It Is claimed in London that It was
through the duchess that the first notice
of the duke's going to sea and of his visit
to the colonies was inserted in The Times,
the duchess hoping to force her husband's
hand in the matter, and to render it diffi
cult for him to withdraw from the project
ed trip, for fear of offending the colonies
and of creating the impression upon the
public that ho was shirking the duties of
his naval profession. But the duke has
not tho slightest intention of being thus
compelled to leave England against his
will merely for the sake of easing his
wife's mind with regard to Princess Hen
ry of Plcss and to Interrupt a very pleas
ant and wholly innocent flirtation, and it
is to him that is attributed the second no
tice in The Times to the effect that he was
not going to sea.
There tho matter rests for tho present,
and It remains to be seen whether It will
develop Into a f ull fledged war between
the dacal couple, tho duchess having
neither the paticnoo, tho good nature nor
the calm common sonne of her mother-in-law,
the Princess of Wales.
HER FAT IS HER FORTUNE.
Why Mary Btnlllns Sells Moonshine

Once again Mary Mullins Is driving tho
revenue officers of Tennessee to despera

and selling tho sanio and doing both open

been issued for her arrest. A dozen reve

and conduct Mary ln triumph to jail.
Mary Invariably has received warrants and

invariably says.. "I am guilty as charged.
I am yours. Take me. "
And not an oflicw yet has been found
who was capablo of taking her at her word
or taking her ln any other way, for the
tact is Mary tips tho beam ot 6U0 pounds,
and, furthermore, sho has so outgrown

which she lives that to pet her out of doors
would involve a technical tearing down of

Two bojn in particular havo distin

"Seo here," exclaimed Miss Dunphy to
the hypnotist, "if you try any of that

But the boy, as if confident of his own
