Kenworthy contended there were
abundant reasons why the court
hoold give farorable consideration
to the motion. And there was much.

facts which shonld be given weight.
He cited that the repniations of two
young men. Loooey and Kelly,

A BLACK BRUTE'S ASSAULT
fa. H. if. aaa Attaeka J br a Km la
Mrs. H. N. Stone, wife of the direc
tor publisher, and who has from
time to time resided in Sock Island.
waa attacked bv a black brute within
a block ot her home in Qainoy the
other night. She was returniot-
from having made a call, and the
Quincy Herald aays of her exciting
experience: "When a short distance
west of Fourth a well-dressed nerro
stepped from the aide ot the walk
and without explanation or apology
grabbed her around the waist and
with an oath commanded her at the
peril of her life not to scream. Mrs
Stone is a plncky lady and struggled
to disengage herself from the loath
some embrace.' When she attempted
to make an outcry the footpad' hand
was plaoed over her month. Still
ahe atrnggUd, all the time dragging
her captor toward her home, tio
they fonght tar a distance ot 100
feet. Then gathering her strength
Mrs. Stone wrenched herself lose
and called for help at the top ot her
voice. The neighborhood la thickly
settled and her cries on the stUl night
air were heard in a number of homes
in the vicinity. Windows and doors
were thrown open and assistance
was promptly on hand. ReaJsing
that hia game was up the black
villain precipitately fled. He ran
across the street and dodged into the
the alley and disappeared from
view in a aoutherlv direction.
Except in the command to be sil
ent the negro t'd not eay anything
to the lady. She thinks that rob
bery was his pnrpose, as he made
several attempts to pull ont her ear
rings. Her cloak and gown were
torn in the struggle, but personally
she escaped unscathed. Tho ner
vous etraia was a terrible one, how
ever, and she was prostrated after
reaching home. The most law-abiding
of citizens are indignant over
these repeated outrages perpetrated
on defenseless womea, and if this one
ia naught it might easily come to
pss that be would receive anmmary
punishment. ! will be one ot half a
dozen to hang the brute to a tree,
said a gentleman not givon to vain
boasting. In tho small company who
heard the remark the fail comple
ment ot the desired lynching coterie
might have been found.1

The queen of night had a date last
evening, but she succeeded in keep
ing her movements cleverly concealed
from the eye ot astronomical re
search. The earth shadowed her
for some time commencing abont 5:37
o'clock, but no one waa the wiser for
tt. The almanac had arranged a
program that called for the begin,
ning of the pe.formance promptly at
the lime stated, and concluding at
7:33, without the customary con
cert. From tae best that can be
learned, everything went off as pre
arranged, bat as a cloud hnng over
the entire affair, extended remarks
beyond the mere announcement of
the event are withheld ont of defer
ence to the feelings of Lunar, in
whose life there has not before oc
curred anything that has brought a
blush to her faoe and this, not
withstanding her periodical prac
tices ot staying ont all night.
Attvoaoam Spuak Light at Ha-.
Owing to the peculiar circum
stances which attended last night's
affair in which the mcon was to
gravely involved, astronomers are
inclined to speak light ot it. They
say it was ot little acientifio signifi
cance any way, and therefore worthy
ot little attention. Had the eight
been fair, the people could have seen
the dip. which concealed about half
the dUk. at toe maximum of the
!'ipso. With a clear sky the eolipso
