A Ruflan Negro's Bold Villainy Near
PitTsbcbo, Pa., Nov. 10. After a long
and hard chase the police ran down Thurs
day a desperate negro, who, after robbing

girl. The negro, Wade West, is
thought to be one of tbe miser junta who
for some time bave been terror. zing peo
ple living on Squirrel Hill and the neigh
borhood of Cavalry cemetery. The mis
creant was rummaging through the house
of Adam Smel z, wheu he came to Irene
Smeltx's bed room. The desire seized hiin
to kiriuap the girl, and t hrowing an over
coat over her, he carried her dowu-stairs
and ont of the house without wakiug her.
The Uirl Givrs the Alarm.
The cool air soon waked the girl, and
she screamed and continued to make an
outcry in spite of the negro's threat to
kill her if she did not cense. Mr. Smeltz
and his wife beard the screams, aud rec
ognizing their daughter's voice they
pursued the villain. The father had a
revolver, but was afraid to shoot, owing
to tbe danger of killing his daughter, but
he gained so rapidly that tbe latter
threw tbe girl to tbe grouud aud escaped
for the time.

New Youk, Nov. 10. The American
committee for the relief of famine in Ire
land has issued a statement announcing
tbe temporary withdrawal of its appetl
to the American people. The statement
contains numerous imputations on tbe
conduct and sincerity of the British gov
ernment in relation to the impending

the same. It is broadly hinted that the
government measures are likely to be in
adequate, and in that event the relief
movement will be taken tip here again,

its organization. One reason given for
withholding relief at this time is that it'

Kring prices at C iicao for OjU 18. HW,
a. i' I of 1883, he shows a nmtked increase
iu the values of agricultural products,
esecially of cereals. Secretary Rusk as
serts that without ignoring tbe effect of
nai oral causes in enhancing values, it is
ev dent that the economic legislation of
the last session of cougress has directly
benefitted the fanner; the improved value
of cereals, as be believes, beiog largely
duo to the silver legislation, which, more
over, has lessened the influence of Russia
anil India, our wheat competitors in Brit
Cattle and Meat Inspection Laws,
Our increased export trade in cattle and
animal products, another cause of con
gratulation, he traces to the energetic
and effective measures adopted for th
eradication of pleuropneumonia and to
the growing appreciation at home and
abrad of the department's ability to sup
press or effectually control contagious an-
mi l diseases. In the line of further pre
caution the department is now prepared
to carry out the inspection of export cat
tle liefore shipment provided for by tbe
act. of Aug. 30 Similar energy has' been
dirtctei to our pork interests, the depart
ment having already undertaken the in
spection called for by the same act. The
secretary strongly recommends an inspec
tion law still more comprehensive ot all
animals slaughtered for interstate or for

The outlook for a home sugar industry
is considered favorable. Tbe secretary
prericts that in tbe near future half of
our sugar will be thus supplied from the
augur beet. The production of raw silk
as a i indigenous industry is referred to
In not very encouraging terms, though
its importance is emphasized by nrsu-e
totle imports of raw silk, which have
largvlv increased during the year, and are
valued for the year at upwards of (Vt.OUO,

lation, as well as for improvements in

the tariff on linens will serve to encourage
manufacturers to provide a market for
Transfer of the Weather Korean.
Reference Is ma le to the forthcoming
transfer of Ihe weather bureau to the de
part nent of agriculture, with a declara
tion of tbe secretary's desire to widen the
prew-nt scope of the bureau so as to in
crease its benefits to agriculture. He also
insis s strongly npon the necessity for
more frtquent representation of the de
part neni at meetings of agricultural and
kindred societies, not only to give Ihem
enco iragement and supply information,
but for the benefit of the department

A Shocking Story About Ag
HER C0MPAHY LEFT IH THE LUECH
While the Popular Favorite Levants
with 'the Rh Receipts and Another
Fellow Tlcissitnde ef Life ra th
fetace Very firaphieally Illustrated A
Dramatic Combination Left Wlthnat a
Dollar to Pay Their Board.
Cul.t'MBL's, O, Nov. 10 Miss Ague
Herndon, the well-known actress, left her
company unceremoniously in this city
yesterday morning and in tbe compan
ionship ot Emmet C. King, her leading
mao, took a train for New York eity. She
left a crowd ot exasperated actors and
actresses without a single dollar where
with to pay for the food tbey have eaten
aince arriving ia thi eity. Their rage
and helplessness last night wa not of the
kind which Is t.imu'.ated on the stage.
The story of the company' vlciitude
since starting out from Syracuse at the
begining of tbe season is the nsual one of
alternate tips and downs, prosperity and
poverty, which eo often attends theatri
cal life; the story of Miss Herndon' per
sonal life for the same period also Is tbe
visual one, and the ending of tbe company's
life and the disclosure of berdreamof bliss
which came yesterday morning, leaves a
dozen actors penniless, blights a fair
name, and bows a husband's head in
deepest anguish and shame.
A Money Making Kend-OtE
The company bad financial backing
from Spitz & Cohen, of Boston, and waa
organized in New York by Myers & Co.
They opened the season at Syracuse to
crowded houses. They then played at
Rochester, Chicago and Milwaukee, at
each place doing a big business, and
welling the profits to a fat figure. From
Milwaukee they started to Omaha, mak
ing one night stand along the route. But
the fickle goddess of luck had changed
her smiles to frowns, and instead of mak
ing money tbey played to losing business
every night. They got back to Milwau
kee on their way eaat, and in that city
Cohen interfered and wished Miss Hern
don to cancel future engagements and
disband at once. Agnes, however, quiet
ed bia apprehensions by promising to put
np the necessary money ont ot her own
funds, aud tbe company came on to Col
umbus. A Strike Behind the Meenes.
Mr. Cohen, w ho was only acting a
manager until a suitable man could be se
cured, watched with growing alarm the
losses of the company, which himself and
partner were compelled to stand, ami
Thursday of last week again remoa
atrated with tbe fair actress. By this
time, too, the member ot the company,
who bad not seen a salary day for two
weeks and a half, became clamorous So
matter stood until Saturday night, when
there was an open rebellion, and one act
or positively refused to go on the stage.
Upon Miss Herndon again renewing bur
promise to act as financial backer, bow
ever, the cast was Oiled and tbe play
Tried to Delude nor Heshaad.
Meantime Mas Herndon had tele
graphed to her Husband. Mr. Jessel, wbo
ia a traveling man for a New York under
wear house, and who, when the message
was sent, waa stoppiug at tbe Palmer
bouse in Chicago. She asked him to come
to Columbus and manage thecotnonnr,
and assured b.m that there would be
plenty of money in the venture. This lat
ter statement seems to have been correct,
at least so far as the fair Agnes herself
was roncerned, for when the proposition
to disband was made at Milwaukee she
hat already drawn from the treasury
t"t,lu0. Mr. Jessel replied, however, that
he . il -ea.'y under cou tract with b.a
house, and could not leave.
Skipped with the Bos Receipts.
Imm -diately after the curtain' dropped
on the last act Saturday night Mis Hern
don, who had previously procured an or
der on tbe box office from Manager Viiler,
went out and drew some CJJU, all that waa
due the company of the evening's receipts.
Then she ordered the trunks belonging to
herself and the leading man. Km met C.
King, to be taken to their hotel and coolly
Informed the company that she was about
to leave tbem. Iben there was a very
merry war which lasted lata into tbe
night, or rather morning, and which
ended by Agnes again promising tosquare
matter up from ber own puna.
