Designs for Cheap Houses.
In the March issue of Carpentiy and
Budding there is commenced the publi
cation of a series of designs of houses
costing from 1,000 to 2,000 each to build
Several months will be required to pre
sent all the designs that have been se
cured for the purpose, and the variety
that will be shown, it is believed, will
rank this series above anj thing else ever
attempted. The studies have been ob
tained through two competitions in which
liberal cash prizes were offered, and in
clude the work of architects in every part
of the country. Each design is accompa
nied by a brief specification of construc
tion and a detailed estimate of cost.

Croup is a terror to young mothers,
especially during the winter months, as
it is then most prevalent. It can always
be prevented, if properly treated as soon
as the first symptoms appear. Hoarse
ness is the first symptom; this is soon
followed by a peculiar, rough cough. If
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is freely
given as soon as these symptoms appear,
it will invariably prevent the attack.
There is no danger in giving the remedy,
as it contains no injurious substance.

Partner of the Man "Whom
Charles Fonts Killed.
Matt Zimmerman Caught in Utah.
A Cheyenne, Wyoming, dispatch of
last Wednesday relates the capture of
Matt Zimmerman, the cowboy desperado,
in Utah last Monday. He has been de
livered to the Nebraska authorities, and
is awaiting identification and the execu
tion of the death sentence.
Zimmerman is a joung man, but his
record is a startling one. Seven years
ago, when he was but nineteen, he raided
tho ranches in Hitchcock county, Ne
braska, in company with Courtney Bel
mont, a young Mexican, and stole a big
band of ponies. With those they rode
toward the east, and were soon followed
by Sheriff Jack Woods and a motley
posse of men and boys. Near the hamlet
of Minden, in Kearney county, tho stolen
ponies were found at pasture on the prai
rie, and while his men were busy securing
them, Woods and one deputy rode into
town to look for the thieves. They found
them at supper at the "Prairie Home."
Woods, without much thought of re
sistance, went to the door of the dining
room, gun in hand, and sung out for the
desperadoes to surrendar. Quick as a
flash, Belmont, who had his pistol on his
lap, made a snap shot, and poor Woods
fell dead. Zimmerman, with an equally
quick shot, winged the deputy, and then
both rushed for the door. As they were
leaving the room they fired another vol
ley, as if to intimidato any one from fol
lowing them, and R. B. Kelley, a guest
who was trying to get his wife stowed
away out of danger, was killed.
On the porch they met John Collins, a
mail carrier, who had just driven up, and
deliberately shooting him down, they
rode off toward the Kausas line. There
was a general turn out in pursuit, and
even the state militia was ordered to join
in the hunt.
A week later, in tho early part of No
vember, 18S2, Belmont was killed in
what was then called Kansas conuty, in
Kansas, near the southwest corner of the
state, at a place called the Point of Rocks,
by Charles C. Fonts, of Trego county,
Kansas. The thieving raids of Belmont
and Zimmerman included trips through
Trego, Graham, Norton and other coun
ties in northwest Kansas. In one of
these laids a valuable trotting horse was
stolen from tho Fouts premises, in the
Saline valley, and this was the cause of
Charles Fouts being in pursuit. Zim
merman w!3 completely unnerved by his
partner's death, and his capture was
easily effected.
He was taken back to MindeD, tried
and sentenced to death, but the supreme
court leversed the verdict, on the ground
that, as Sheriff Woods had no warrant,
Belmont and Zimmerman were justified
in resisting the arrest.
A second trial was had, and again con
viction followed, and tho death sentence
was imposed. Again the supreme court
reversed the findings.
Zimmerman was again taken before
Gastin, the same judge. For the third
time ho was found gnilty, and sentenced
to be hauged. Tho usual appeal to tho
supreme court was taken, and whilo it
was pending the prisoner's lawyer hit
upon a novel method of securing his cli
ent's release. He succeeded in convin
cing a United States commissioner that
he had the right, pending the hearing, to
admit Zimmerman to bail. He fixed the
bond at SI 0 000. Straw bail was furnish
ed, and Zimmerman levanted. This was
four years ago, and nothing had been
heard of Zimmerman until his recapture
in Utah last Monday. In the meantime
his case has been decided against him by
the supreme court, and the chances of his
being hung are quite promising.
