"YeU. I still have one friend left,"
and John Hall looked into the muzzle
i f a revolver that he had taken from
Ids pocket when a young lady whom
he 'had been courting told him she

This happened yesterday afternoon
in the corridor on the fourth floor of

$:;): to keep the peace for .".0 days.
Hall, who is a veteran of the Spanish-American
war. had been a caller
at th-. home of the lady in question,
but had grown to be such an anient
wooer that he was requested to desist
in his attentions to her. He was for
bade the house by her parents.
A Ran for the Ktrer.
According to the testimony at the
hearing-. Hall look his dismissal so
seriously to heart that he startetl to
bury his griefs in the chilling bosom
of the Mississippi, but enroute he was
overtaken by a sinking spell, and was
unable to carry out his desperate pur
pose. Occasionally he had visited his
charmer at the court house, where
she is employed as stenographer. She
informed him that it would better
please her if he would not call on her
there.-but he persisted until the young
lady found it necessary to request the
men in the ollice to give Hail a cur
tain lecture cn the Impropriety of
forcing his attentions :,n a young
lady. Yesterday afternoon Hall again vis

note by messenger to the 'adv asking
that she grant him an audience in the

above the office in which she is em
ployed. She acquiesced ami met Hal!
sit the appointed place.

' He pleaded for reinstatement in her
affections, but she told him lhat they
could bo nothing'- more than friends,
as they always had been. Then Hall
pro lured the revolver, and the young
woman, fearing- that he meant her
harm, ran away from him and into
her office. She saw no more of the
ardent swain until she alighted from
a .car thnfshe had taken for home ilk.
the evening, when he again approach
ed her with his love-sick pleadings.
He walked with her for a block, when
he was seized with another of the
sinking spells to which he is subject

and hastened to her home.
This n: ruing, on consultation with
an attorney, it was decided that she
