Women present were the first to

White Man Butchered.
Cairo, 111., Nov. 11.?Henry Salzner, I
white, a photographer, who killed his
wife last July with an axe, was taken
from jail at 11:40 o'clock tonight by a
mob and hanged to a telegraph pole,
and his body riddled with bullets. I
This lynching followed closely on the
lynching of Will James, a negro, who I
earlier in the evening had been hang- I
ed for the murder of Miss Annie Pel
Th Oovernor. who Is in Chicago,
ordered eleven oompanles of the State
guard to Cairo at once.
The mob gave Salxner a chance to
confess after the rope was around his
neck, hut ho was so frightened that
he could only mumble that his sisters
had killed his wife.
The mob became furious at this, I
and It was hard work to keep them
off Saliner long enough to give him a I
chance to pray. The mob finally sub
sided and a short religious service I
was held, after which he was strung I
up, the rope being placed over a tele
graph pole at 21st and Washington
The mob found some difficulty in I
breaking the cage, as It was an en- I
ttrely steel structure; but after a half
hour of telling blows upon the door
It gave way and Salsner was secured. I
The mob rushed him out of the back 1
door of the jail, which is in the base- I
ment of the Court House, around the
building through the yard and out
Into Washington avenue, and up to I
11st street, which la a prominent cor
ner and has a public square.
He cried and begged plteoualy for I
his life and was met by cries and
blows from the mob.
When Salsner was asked for his last
statement a man, a strai ner In the
crowd, stepped forward and said he I
believed Salxner waa Innocent, where?
upon the mob fell upon him, kicked I
him and finally knocked him down. I
and It was only the pleas of cooler
persons that saved his life. He was
compelled to beg for mercy from the
mob. and announced in a loud voice
that Salxner should be lynched, after
which he wag driven from the mob
and all attention was given to Salx?
ner After Salzner was hanged, and
while the body was being riddled with
bullet?, the rope broke and the body
fell to the ground, where It now lies,
the mob going away and leaving it.
Salsner was born and reared here.
He had been married about two years
last July, when his wife was found
at her home with her akul fractured.
A hoodly axe was found under the
bed. Two babies were playing In the
mother's blood. Salzner was found at
the home of his mother, where he of?
ten slept at night. Beforo Mrs. Salz?
ner died -du- r. . . .\. , , ,l enough to ac?
cuse her husband of attacking her.
Feeling against him had been bit?
ter, and tonight, after the lynching
of James, when some one suggested
Salsner, the mob rushed for the coun?
ty Jail, got Slazner and lynched him.
Search for the negro, Alexander,
supposed accomplice of James In the
Pelley murder, continues.

appreciation, and said that he had
ushered in "our church" for eighteen
years, but could not remmber that
any one had ever before spoken a
word of thanks to him. It is partly

Louisville, K>\, Nov. 11.?In an at?
tempt at bank robbery, a young man,
who has been partially Identified as
Arthur Hall, of Louisville, a dealer in
second-hand furniture, entered the
Merchants* National Bank at New Al?
bany, Ind., shortly before noon today,
and killed J. Hangary Fawcett, cash?
ier of the bank, seriously wounded
John K. Woodward, president of the
bank, and wounded James R. Tuck?
er, a negro chauffeur, probably fatal?
When Hall entered the bank he car?
ried a pistol in each hand. After
commanding every one to throw up
his hands and "get into the vault"
Hall began shooting.
Cashier Fawcett was shot through
the chest and neck and died almost
instantly. President Woodward was
shot through the liver and his intes?
tines were perforated. Tucker, the
chauffeur, was shot through the body.
Following the shooting, the mur?
derer rushed from the bank and tried
to escape in an automobile, which he
had taken from the curb in front of
the residence of Its owner, Mrs. Wal?
ter Escott, in Louisville. He had
forced the negro chauffeur at the
point of a pistol to drive him to New
? After the shooting at the bank, the
chauffeur was paralyzed with terror
and apparently incapable of action, sa t
still when the robber jumped into the
car and ordered him to speed up the
machine. The robber then Jumped
from the automobile, shot the negro
in the back and ran two blocks to the
Ohio Rilver. He seized a skiff and
was on his way to the Louisville side
of the river before the frightened citi?
zens of New Albany knew what had
transpired. An alarm was given
through a megaphone on a dredge
boat, and in a short time several po?
licemen had started In pursuit In a
fast motor boat.
Capturing their man they brought
him to shore, where, by a ruse Police
Capt. Adams kept back the crowd of
200 persons, which crowded around
the dock as the police boat landed.
Commanding the prisoner to lie down,
Capt. Adams announced to the crowd
that the man had taken poison and
was dead, meanwhile carrying him to
the patrol wagon and giving the word
to drive ahead. The bandit was tak?
en to the New Albany jail. A few
moments later he was removed to the
Southern Indiana Reformatory, at
JefTersonville, to escape the mob
which realizing that it had been trick?
ed, had assembled around the jail.
Rhinestones Are Fsed on the New
A good many of the new Moyen
age dressers show a yoke cut Into
points in some way or other to break
the straight line between the over
and under skirt.
On a very beautiful reception gown,
the points come at either side of the
yoke. The lower part of the skirt
was laid in groups of shallow tucks
that held in the fullness of the dress
for some five or six Inches below the
yoke. The waist was tucked at thf
back and front to match the skirt,
though very little of the tucking
showed under the wide bands of
steel-embroidered net that crossed
the bodice In surplice fashion at the
front and met in back In deep V,
The dress was made of silk cr^pon
in the new shade of deep bluish pur?
ple, known as yerdange or grape.
Stool beads are used lavishly on the
new gowns and take the form of
wonderful embroideries scattered
with a prodigal hand over both waists
and skirts. Silver, gold and rhlne
stones are used as well as steel, but
one sees little net. Metal fruits and
flowers are quite the rage, clusters of
them catching up the drapery of an
overskirt or holding in the laces or
chiffons of a bodice.?The Delineator

TO CONDEMN MOLDY CORN.
Texas Health Officer Urges Legislat?
ion in Support of Effort to Prevent
Spread of Pellagra.
San Antonio, Texas Nov., 11.?The
feature of today's session of the an?
nual convention of th Southwest Med?
ical asociation was the address of Dr.
William Brumby, Texas State health
officer, who yesterday exhibited a pa?
tient suffering from pellagra. As a
preventive measure, Dr. Brumby
suggested the exercise of the greatest
vigilance in using corn or corn prod?
ucts in order that moldy or decaying
cereal be not used. He also urged that
an inspector be appointed, whose dut?
ies it shall be to see that millers do
not utilize the "nubbins" or bad ears
of corn, and that the officer be given
power to seize and condemn any con
singment of com showing moldiness.
In using corn on the cob, he sug?
gested, millers should cast off ends
or nubs as these are most liable to
contain the germ of the disease.
Mexico next year will celebrate the
centenary of the beginning of its re?
volt against Spanish rule, which re?
sulted in independence after years of
struggle. Hidalgo, the priest who led
the rebellion, met with crushing de?
feat, yet his motives have remained
unquestioned, and his memory is to
reclve high honrs. He lived in med?
ieval days, but the celebration is to
be modern and practical. At Saltlllo,
where he once lived, the citizens pro?
pose to observe the centenary by pav?
ing streets and in other parts of Mex?
ico public improvements are to be in?
augurated. The federal government
also has extenclve plans for carrying
out the same Idea, its programme
calls for an expenditure of enarly $1,
000,000 on schools, charitable institu?
tions, the National Museum, public
monuments, and parks. Whatever
may go to mere show, there is to be
a ''ne lot of permanent Improvements
to make the celebration memorable
