CIIAI'TER XI—(Contelnneil.)
Nicksey nt Home,
Spread out on the roof of the coacn,
N'ictsey lay in state fe.l fas By the back of Nicks^
before the wheels had revolved a dozen
times, aud continued still to slumber
after the vehicle had amved and
had stopped before his own door.
Jarvis had driven very "gently i»e
over the stones," and even so expecting
ererv moment to see his passenger ou
the roof joggled thence to fall with a
heavy flop ou to the road.
But the drunk.ird's accredited good
fortune still continued with Nicksey,
and if a jolting and. sinking of one sUe
coach caused him to slide
dangerously down to the very edge of
Sie r0of, another jolting was certain to
Sow on the opposite s'de which very
Kneedlly righted him again.
Jarvis had some trouble in finding
NIcksey's domicile, but having at last
reached it:

Jarvis was as greatly surprised as

arrived with tliem.-
Neither of them had witnessed any
thing of the attack which had been
made on the commercial traveler that
of'course: or Joins had not, as we
know he did, set forward on his way.
Emmeline was greatly distressed,
even alarmed something serious, she
thought, had occurred to No?l that he
should have failed to accompany her at
a time, and to a place when and where
his presence was so all-important to
the purpose for which he had so long
and diligently labored.
Jarvis was of opinion that Noel was
not far behind and would soon be with
them, and suggested that 'Mr. Nlcksi-y
had better be got into the house, or
they might have the watch upon them,
and be all locked up together—coach,
and horses snd all.
Night had come so Jarvis, taking one
of his coach lanterns, proceeded to a
neighboring tavern, and there lighted

door of Nicksey's liouse, but no one

the one which bad preceded it,
Nicksey grunted audibly, but gave no
farther sign of consciousness. Jonas
then tapped at the fellow's pockets,
and in one of them felt a key of which
he instantly possessed himse.f.
With that key. as he had expected
would be the case, Emmeline and Jar
vis gained an entrance to Nicksey's
But neither of the rooms on the
ground floor were they able to enter,
for both were fastened.
They ascended to the floor above, and
entered the front room, the door of
which they found widely open.
As Jarvis threw around the light of
his lantern, Emmeline exclaimed, shud
"Oh, what a frightful place."
The house which Mr. Nicksey was
pleased to term his home was the most
wretchedly dilapidated of a small
6treet, miserably inhabited and where
every dwelling had reached almost the
very last stage of decay.
Above the room in which Emmeline
and Jarvis now w?re there were large
holes in the roof, through which they
were able to see the stars twinkling In
the blue firmament.
"This must be the gentleman's sum
mer residence!" sniggered Jarvis.
In the only corner of the room above
which there was no hole in the roof
is a rickety old truckle bed, closely
grossed against the wall, that It might
derive a support from the frail lath
and plaster, which, though greatly
needing aid itself, had yet power to
save from tumbling entirely to pieces
the forlorn object which was made to
clinjT to it
There was one table, rickety also,
«nd worm-eaten something which
Jonas believed had in some bygone age,
been a ohest of drawers, and three or
four straw-bottomed chairs, with
scarcely any of the straw remaining.
On the table, Jonas, presently saw a
piece of candle, which was fixed in
the spout of an old coffee-pot.
"We are all right, now," cried Jonas
"here's the drawing-room chandelier—
here goes for a general illumination."
And lie lighted the end of candle, and
the next moment saw for the lirst
time Emmeline's face, on which the
light of his lantern had now fully fal
len and he started and knitted his
brows, and angrily excaimed, "What!
is it you?"
"You know me?" said Emmeline,
looking surprised.
"Know you? But too well do I know
you!" Jonas answered, with an expres
sion of loathing and contempt
While this had been passing, Nicksey
had awakened, and opening his eyes,
and looking about him, had wondered
where he was.
Presently he discovered that he was
still on the roof of the coaoh, and that
the vehicle was no longer in motion.
And then he roarr\l out, "What's
the matter—are we upset? Drive on,
coachey—I'll pay!"
And Jonas hurried from the house,
and was in time to break Mr. Nicksey's
fall, who had, at last, rolled from the
roof of the coach.
And Emmeline again was wonder
ing how it was that Noel Barrington
had not accompanied 1ier to Nicksey's
den, and was growing full of terror
that he had not yet arrived.
The- whole of the house to which we
have but now been introduced, was
rented by Nicksey—if we may venture
to use such a term concerning a gentle

Yet small as was this miserable apol

It had happened more than once that
an officer of justice had been anxious
for an interview with Nicksey, which
that gentleman had been still more
anxious to avoid, so no one but himself
might be allowed to open the door of
the house In which lie resided.
On one occasion, the street door had

That quarter was indeed a sort c.
sanctuary, which having reached, every
rogue considered that he was safe.
No officer there pursuing a culprit
ever thought of shouting for help to
stop the runaway but a hunted man
has been known, when lie lias found the
constables drawing unpleasantly close
to his heels, himself to call out, "Stop

rally to shelter and protect him.
And so it would be for men, women,
and children would rush from their
houses and in a moment almost, a thick
and impenetrable mas's of people would
separate the officers from the man on
whom but just before they had almost
lain their hands.
Having, with the assistance of Jarvis,
gathered himself together a little, Nick

"Yes, but where?" shouted Nicksey.
"This is not the 'Three Compasses.'"
Emmeline presented herself before
him, but he did not see her even while
speaking his eyes had been closed and
he was now half asleep as he leaned
against the door-post.
"You have been brought to your own
house," Emmeline said and rousing
himself up for a moment, Nicksey stag
gered forward into the room.
"I won't stop," he roared. "Coachey,
drive me to the 'Three Compasses.'"
"Well, but your friend will be here
directly," urged Emmeiue.
"In that case, I'll wait for him, just

And he dropped into a chair beside
the empty grate, telling "Coachey" to
stir the fire.
There had been a thunder-storm,
which had left the air very chilly.

Nicksey shivered, complained that he
was very cold, and fell asleep immedi
And then Jarvis, In a haf-whisper,
said to Emmeline:
"You asked me, awhile since, if I
knew you? You are the young girl
whom I took one night from her
mother's house to thfe residence of a
certain Mr. Noel Barrington—and you
are she who has turned my poor
nephew's head."
"Are you indeed the good, kind
uncle of whom so often I have heard
Edwin speak?" Emmeline eagerly
"Do not you expect any kindness
from me, for I hate you, for the wrong
that you have done to my poor boy."
"Mr. Jarvis, if I dared confide in
you began Emmeline, but was .in
terrupted by Jonas, who in his indig
nant anger had not even heard her.
Looking around the room, and then
at Nicksey:
"What will Edwin think, when I
have told him at what place, and with
whom I have ljft you?" said Jonas.
And then, drawing her lover's uncle
further from Nicksey, and in an al
most inaudible whisper, Emmeline en
tvented that Jarvis would say not a
word to his nephew until the moment
had arrived when she would be able
to justify her conduct.
"And I swear to you, sir, she em
phatically added, "that every honest
heart will then be sorry for its sus
picions against me."
"Oh. vou can speak very prettily, no
doubt about that," sneered Jonas, "but.
I suppose, with all your fine words,
you intend to remain here alone with
that dmnken vagabond?"
And Jonas pointed to Nicksey, who.
at the moment, vrasi snoring very
Emmeline shuddered, but answered
She could not say that she was com
pelled to remain ii^ order that she
might obtain the proofs which were
in the possession now of that de
bauched ruffian.
And so her head drooped before
Jarvis, who jvith angry Impatience
turned from her, arui was about to
quit the room.
Emmeline called to him, and he
stopped and asked her sharply what
more she wanted with him.
And the poor girl said very humbly
that, if he would wait for her with his
coach, at the corner of the street, she
would be forever groatful to him.
Jonas gruinbllngly consented to do as
she had asked but he didn't want
any of her gratitude—never took more
than his regular fare from anybody—
not even from an enemy.
"I have not merited that you should
be mine," cried Emmeline. "Listen,
sir—if Edwin had a sister, I would to
her reveal my secret," and. before he
could be aware of it, taking Jarvis
hand, and looking toiichingly and ap
pealingly into his face, "do you still
believe me guilty?"
Jonas snatched away his hand and
turned abruptly from the young girl
but that was only that he might hide
from her the emotion which her .looks
and woids had caused him.

'^Gnllty as Charged" I* the Verdict
sg|s£Reiidered by the Jury In thejgsgj|
SffSi Famous Murder Case After sss
Sfc-'s Deliberating- by Two
7 Hours.
The Crowd Would Have Made Short
.... Work of Hiiii Had He Been
Minneapolis, March 10. "Guilty as
charged" was the verdict rendered by
the jury in the case of Harry Hay
w.trd for the murder of Cutlieriue
Ging, and he Is now In the shadow
of the gallows.
The verdict was reached after only
two hours' deliberation.
Mr. Erwin was taken ill before the
verdict was announced and went to
St. Paul. A stay of proceedings was
Harry Hay ward.
granted until next week, when a mo
tion will be made for a new trial. If
this is refused an appeal will be taken
to the supreme court.
Had the verdict been one of acquittal
Hayward would have been lynched
and nothing could have prevented it,
as the mob about the court room was
large enough to overcome the entire
police department.
The Diiy'a Proceeding *.
Court opened an hour earlier than
usual to give Mr. Erwin the time to
close his argument for the defendant,
which had already lasted two days.
Erwin began by pointing out that the
loan Harry Hayward made Miss Ging
had not been attacked in the evidence
except by the word of Clans Biixt.
The validity of this loan was the cita
del of the defense. It was evident that
had the police machine been properly
.sot in motion the mystery surrounding
Miss Ginor's behavior would have been
solved, and in a manner consistent
with the noble character of the girl.
At the same time It would have re
lieved this "innocent man from die
chnrsTP rncler which lie now rests."
Mr. Erwin tnen devoted imnsolf to
the alibi and claimed that all of Har
rv's time when he was involved by
Blixt's testimony had.been satisfactori
lv accounted for. In closing he said
this is the most monstrous persecution
in the country's history.
"If you are in obedience to the pres
sure brouelit on you to tear down all
the rules of law. if fanaticism and ilie
monstrosity of this alliance between
the pprj'irer and the murderer re 'to
influence you. then tell your artisans
to remove from all onr domes tbe
statue of Justice. Tell them to put in
hor plnoe a flsrure of tbe lias of hell.
Take down your flair, the flasr of your
.republic tbe red, white and blue.
Take it down—the old flasr of freedom,
and bid vour officers rear In Its place
that polished, black face of hellish
perjury. You, gentlemen of tbe 1urv.
you are In the hands of God. No pow
er can mar or overthrow your verdict.
Beware that you do not betray the con
science of this nation."
The Jmlffe'K Chnriy».
It took Judge Seasxave Smith forty
minutes to read his charge to the jury.
He declared that the verdict must be
guilty as charged or not guilty. If the
defendant was guilty, it was premedi
tated, and the judge intimated that
there could be no verdict of guilty of
less than murder In the first degree.
He then explained the reasonable
doubt theory at great length. He con
"To what extent the defense has
discredited Blixt's testimony is for
you, gentlemen, to say. They say his
testimony was conflicting, and you
have a right to take into consideration
the condition of Blixt's mind that
night. It is necessary for you to be
satisfied that Blixt killed Miss Ging.
Second, that Hayward incited. If.
when you retire, you are satisfied that
Blixt killed the girl, you may proceed
if not, do not consider the verdict fur
ther. But if Harry did incite, as
charged, your verdict will be guilty.
"The state is not relying on circum
stantial evidence, but has the positive
testimony of Blixt that he killed Miss
Ging, and the positive statement of
Aary Hayward, a few days before the
murder, that Harry said he was going
to kill her. This testimony is also
supplemented by much circumstantial
evidence. You must decide how far
this evidence Is worthy of credence
and how far it is corroborative. The
testimony of an accomplice must be ac
cepted with extreme care. In judging
of the credibility of these witnesses
the jury was entitled to consider their
attitude on the stand, the reasonable
ness of their statements and the con
ditions under which they testified. If
it was believed that any witness had
testified falsely it was at liberty to
discard his evidence, except wherein
corroboration from other reliable
source established its credibility."
If it was apparent that any witness
was possessed of ill-feeling against the
accused, that also might bt taken
Into consideration. Tf the jury found
that any witness had srlven testimony
on a prordse of immunity from pnn'?1'
ment. that also must be nrefmiv
weighed. This oasr» was to be tr'°d
on tbe same principles prpcisely as any
n*lm'nil case, no mitVr ho«'
Importance. The jury had nothirg to
do with the punishment inflicted. No
attention was to be paid to the utter
ances of attorneys on either side, ex
cept as based on the testimony, but
when the evidence was placed In the
jury's hands It was the duty of the
jury to decide, after weighing it care
fully, whether it was sufficient to sus
tain the charge against the defendant
Guilty as Charged.
The charge was perfectly satisfac
tory to bot'h sides and no exceptions
were noted. It was generally conceded
to be fair and impartial.
The ruling passion in Harry Hay
ward was strong in the presence of
death. He placed a bet of $10 tills
morning that the verdict would be an
acquittal and that it would be reached
inside of two hours by the jury.
Judge Smith stayed in the court
room until noon, and then, as no word
came from the jury room, went home
to dinner. The court was adjourned.
At 2 o'clock the jury reported that
they ha 1 a.TCv upon a verdict ana
the judge was sent for. He ordered
that Hayward be brought in. When
(he prisoner arrived he was the coolest
man in the court room. He sat there
amid the solemn silence of the big
room, scanning the faces of his twelve
countrymen, one by one, as if to learn
in advance whether any ray of hope
lurked behind their lmpassivenesa, The
fWBiMJ Wd |f|4i £H0
story they had to tell could be read in
their faces and Hayward knew his
fate before a word was spoken. No
spectators were admitted. The only
persons present when the verdict was
handed In were police officers, sheriffs
deputies and reporters, besides the
judge and clerks. Outside a howling
anxious mob awaited the news-, and
awaited It with ghoulish Impatience.
When Judge Smith arrived he Issued
strict orders to admit no one, and the
injunction was religiously observed.
Kobler, the deputy clerk, asked In a
tremulous voice whether the jurv had
agreed upon a verdict, and Neil Mc
Neil, the foreman, stood up. His face
was ghastly in its color, and there was
not a man on the jury unaffected by
the Intense gravity of the situation.
Timberlake's dark eyes shone like
sloes from his ashen visage, and even
tbe farmer members were visibly hor
rified with the stern duty devolving
upon them.
"We have airced." said M^Vell. In
a votce that was scarcely audible, and
tbe folded niece of paper that meant
life or death to the ancusod wis h^d
ed to the cl^rk. Judge SmUli InoVed
over the document fire*- and returned
It to Deputy Clerk Kobler.
Didn't Plinse Him.
"We. the jury, find the prisoner
guilty," he read. Every eye was
turned toward tbe condemned man.
There was nothing in his face to indi
cate' that he had heard a word of it.
He threw his head back as the word
"guilty" was pronounced, but is was
only to adjust his collar band. He did
not change color by a single shade.
Twice lie conglied—'that strange, hard,
metallic cough tha.t has been heard so
often in the last few weeks. Then,
looking around at the crowd he raised
his eyebrows inquiringly as though to
ask: "What next?"
During the polling of the jury he
listened with evident interest to the
answers, though what they mirht be
could signify nothing to him. The ex
pression in his face was one of In
dignation rather than any other senti
ment. Judge Smith then voted his
thanks to the 1ury for their labors in
connection with the case. At the re
quest of the defense a stay was grant
ed until next week.
At 2:45 Havward was taken down
stairs and led back to jail under a
stroii? police guard.
In t'le belief that trouble might oc
cur if tbe verdict, exonerated Hayward,
a force of determined officers had been
detailed to dutv in the court room and
vicinity. An Immense crowd awaited
the prisoner's coming. He grinned at
the mob as it pushed forward over the
pavement toward him. and it is doubt
ful whether Harry Havward would
have regretted an opportunity to mix
matters with some of tbe noisiest. He
was taken across the strpet on a dog
trot, with the yelling multitude at his
"Not Yet," Snys Harry.
"Good by, Harry, old boy," cried one
man at the top of his voice. "You're
a dead duck."
"Not vet." said Harry loud enough to
be heard in a radius of twenty feet.
•"Not quite a dead duck yet."
According ro the statutes of the state
onlv one fate can await Harry Hay
ward—a sentence to be hanged by the
neck until dead, and that sentence to
be pronounced by the lips of the judge
before whom he was tried. Neither
the jury nor tbe judge could alter the
sentence no matter how strongly in
clined tliev might be toward leniency.
For murder in the first degree the law
provides only one penalty. Judge and
jury alike are but the agents of the
s*-ate for the "jxerution of that law. and
the verdict of the 1nrv has made the
sentence of Harry Hayward as certain
as though the judge had already an
nounced It.

White Oak, N. M., March 12-At
3 o'clock this morning a fire broke out
In the change room of the hoist house
of the Old Abe mine and in a few
minutes the struct-rre, a lage and well
built one, was a mass of flames, it
was completely destroyed, together
with the wood and
shops, lhe
mill, sixty feet away, escaped withoiit
damage. The wood work of the shaft
was burned out and the hoisting ma
chinery destroyed. The da,mage runs
high up into the thousands, but tne
most distressing feature is that some
men are Imprisoned in the dark depths
whose fate is unknown. There is
little ground for hope that they have
escaped suffocation. It will not be pos
sible to enter the mine to search for
them until some time to-morrow. Res
cuing parties have been unable as yet
to get down further than the third lev
el by the ail shaft. The smoke and
gjses from the charred wood of the
hoist shaft has penetrated tbe upper
levels, and it is impossible to pass
them. The entombed men are Charles

are married. White is a new man

any place of safety is to be found, they
found it. The fire broke out while G.

bucket to work. He had reached the
ninth level when the hoist was aban
doned and was shot down two hun
dred feet to the thirteenth level where
the bucket struck, tipped and threw
him into the drift. He was stunned

Duluth, Minn., March 12.—Some of
the passengers who came in on the
Northern Pacific train from the west
wore a decidedly nervous lot of peo
p'o until thpv were some distance this
side of Ivimberly, and there is quite a
sensational story connected with the
cause of their uneasiness. Last night
about 11 o'c-ock Mrs. Re'.cliart,
niglit operator at Kimberly, twelve
miles tills side of Aitkin, heard three
rough looking men talking in the sta
tion and learned that they were plan
to wreck the passenger tr.iin
that night at the bridge near Knnberly.
She sit down at the table and at once
wired the dispatcher at Brainerd. The
three men heard the key working and
jumped at the correct conclusion that
she was warning tihe railroad people.
They made a rush for the door of her
office room and tried 'o break in. They
were met by a plucky, determined
woman, who instead of fainting or go
ing into hysterics produced a revolver
and fired four shots through the door.
This was effectual, for the three men
took to tlie'r heels. The road offici-Vs
sent word for the section men to patrol
the track for several miles and the
train was run very cautiously through
that part of lhe country. No trouble
was experienced.

For the Bicycle*
Since women have become so enthu
siastic and determined in tfryir efforts
to ride a bicycle the problem of suita
ble dress is constantly under discus
sion. So much distinction and indi
viduality is given to women by their
clothes that directly they take up a
new exercise or amusement the all
absorbing question of dress is sure to
present itself, and, when the artistic
side is complicated with the require
ments of usefulness as applied to a
bicycle, it is not so easy to solve. As
yet the ideal costume has not appeared.
It must combine the virtues and the
charms of purely feminine attire with
more severe lines of the so-called "ra
tional dress," which is, however, much
it may vary in different countries, an
ambition in the direction of trousers
and quite skirtless. A great variety
of costumes have been designed, and
diverse opinions expressed as to their
merits, and among them is the zo.iave
dress, with loose trousers, a Norfolk
jacket, and long gaiters, which now
prevails in Paris. Parisian women are
