Mattoon, Dec. 15. At 7:30 this evening, as Judge Horace S. Clark was returning from his office to his residence, he was shot at four times by Frank W. Ilornisb. The first ball grazed his face, snother lodged in the shoulder, and a third made a flesh wound in the leg, above the knee. Be fore the first shot was fired tbe Judge grappled with his assailant and by so doing doubtless prevented the shots from penetrating a vital part. Horuish had been befriended by Clark on all occa sions, and there was no reasonable exense for his cowardly act. Ho had invented a boiler-cleaning device, but quarreled with his associates in its manufacture and sold his interest in tho invention, against tho protest of tbe Judge, who was a legal ad viser for his interests, llornish was promptly placed in jail. He bad also threatened Mayor Frank Kern. but. being a great braggart, no one paid serious attention to his talk. The Judge's wounds are not likely to disable him permanently, but they will be painful for a few days. Clark, some month ago, 6igned HornisVs bond to secure his release lrom jail in De- catnr. where be had some serious legal trouble. Mr. Clark's wounds were dressed by a corps of physician of tho city, and he is fecliug comfortable over the escape he made.

Ind., Dec. 13.The first semi-annual meeting of the board of trustees of Wabash College was held in this city to-day, and it was a very important event. At the meeting last Juno it was decided to hold a session in December, while college was in session, in order to seo how tho college was conducted during term time. The following persons are tbe trustees of the college, and those marked by were present to-day: 1888-92 Hon. D. P. Ualdwin, LL. 1)., Loaus port; Rev. M. L. Halnea, I. D., Indianapolis: Jos.

Indianapolis. The Board was called together at 10 o'clock, with President Tuttlo in the chair and Prof. J. L. Campbell as secretary. Tho morning was taken up in hearing reports of the various committees, nnd tho main business was transacted in the afternoon. The co-educatlou committee is composed of D. II. Baldwin, T. If. Paxton and Kev. M. L. Haines: the executive committee consists of President Tuttle, Alex. Thomson, Joseph Milligan, Hon. J. M. Butler, T. H. liistine, R. E. Bryant. A. D. Thomas and Itev. M. L.

The new office of vice-president, of which Prof. J. L. Campbell is occupant, is prov ing a valuable acquisition. Tho instruc tion committee, composed of President Tuttle. Professor Campbell, W. A. Woods. A. D. Thomas. T. K. Paxton, Kov. W. P. Kane and Bev. 31. L. Haines, is the most important committee reporting to-day. The co-education committee did not re port, as Jndge Baldwin as in Europe, but individual statements show that he favors, while Paxton opposes, and Haines is unde cided. This committee was granted until June to report, and the postponement of any action at the meeting indicates that, under present conditions, the doors of Wa bash will not be thrown open for co-education. The feeling in tho board is rather in favor of a department for women, thor oughly equipped with dormitories for tho home life of the ladies; the recitations to be in divisions by sexes, and the library and lectures to be for both sexes. There were some six names mentioned as snccuHAor for President Tuttle, and the committee on instruction was authorized to make a selection, as soon us possible, and then the trustees will meet and take action. Tho committee on education will make a selection from the forty applications for the professorship of mathematics by the beginning of tbe next term.

The actual income of the collego is not as much as generally supposed. Mr. Yandes informed Prof. Campbell that his management of the erectiou of Yandes Library Hall is entirely satisfactory, and the building was beyond his expectations.

The head of the bomb-thrower was fully identified early this morning as that of Henry L. Norcross, by the parents of the young man, who came on from Boston for that pvrpose. Mr. and Mrs. James Norcross arrived here late last night. Coroner Messener was uotified of their presence and called on the aged couple at midnight. At 1 a. m. the party was driven to Bellevue- Hospital, where the dynamiter's head had been left for ex amination. Warden O'Kourke and Clerk Bicketts hastily arranged the head so as to shock tho parents as little as possible. A cloth was placed around the neck aud Mrs. Norcross and the gentlemen were ushered into the warden's private office. Mrs. Norcross was first shown the head. She identified it in the presence of Coroner Messener. She said, positively: "This is my darling boy; my poor darling boy. He never meant to do any harm. Ho surely did cot mean to do wrong. My own. my foor Henry. Yes, yes, theso are his teeth, know them. I remember those under teeth, and how proud ho was of them, and that tooth there. L remember how it was separated. Ves. yes. and his ears how often I have looked at them. And 1 re member his hair. That's just the way he used to part it." The fillings of the teeth were examined, nnd were found to tally exactly with tho description furnished by Dr. Wells, the dead man's deutist. Before coing to tho hqspital Mrs. Nor cross made the following statement to the coroner: 'A letter was found in the safe in my son's office and delivered to me. I cannot give the contents of the letter. It is destroyed. It was written in black ink on plain unruled paper, very wide. It was not dated. It began: "Dear Mother I am going to New York to day to tret $1,200,001). If succe88lul 1 6hall re turn. If not, 1 hall kill myself. 'Ho signed his name in full: 'Henry L. Norcross.' There was another letter ad dressed in his own hand;writing to Mrs. James E. iorcroes. Personal.' The first letter wab destroyed, becauso he wanted no one else to know its contents. We read this three times together, I and my hus band, and thou I put it on tbe coals myself. I felt that was the disposition ne wanted made of it. 1 was so shocked 1 could not tell how long I would live. The second letter 1 have here. It reads: -C. 11. L. Norcross, Note-broktr, No. 12 Pearl street, Hoora7. Uostou: "Dear Mother You will find the combination of ray safe at home, under tho bureau and the carnet.ln my room. ' Henkv. "P. S. Open the safe and read tho letter to you without tho presence of anyone, if possible. "The letter was written in tho lirst per-son-every word of it. He had no satchel when be left home. I never saw the bag they say he had. He said to me when he left: 1 am going away a few days, and will not be back before Saturday.' Ho did not say where he was goiug. There was nothing peculiar in his manner. He seemed quite thoughtful, lio had been thoughtful for the last six months, though at times he was as jolly as ever. Ho nnd 1 used to have a frolic, when ho came down to breakfast, nearly every morning. In his letter bo did not say why he wanted the 81.200.000." MIl.D-M ANN EKED YOUNG MAN. The coroner told the United Press report er this morning that among other things Mrs. Norcross had said to him, after identi fying the remains of tho dynamiter as that of her son, was tho following: "My son, Henry L. Norcross, was always mild-mannered. I am positive that' he. had never harbored any bad feelings toward Bussell Sage. Ho advocated tho limitation of wealth, saying that no one man should be permitted to accumulate an immense amount of money. When reading in the newspapers that a certain person had died leaving so man' millions, he said that was wroufc.. He was regular in his habits. He was a free-thinker, however, and believed in no hereafter, lie never quarroled. He did not like cards.: He was always at home at nights. He was retiring; hot quite firm. He was very determined, in fact, mllexible. He never led me to believe that he contem- Elated harm toward others or himself. His rain also seemed to be very high above the ears. He had tino instincts no low disposition. . "He always seemed to admire Russell Sago as a brainy man, and ho thought he had earned bis money more honestly than other millionaires. I never know him to handle explosives, and it is a great mystery to me how he learned so much about them. He could be very secretive. I felt per fectly safe to tell him anything. - He asso ciated with no young men. Ho was in lore with no oii9 bnt myself. He said to me three weeks ago: I shall never get mar ried unless 1 can make you independent He said to me often: 'Mother, you aud I get along well together. You never get vexed at me. Your disposition is just tho one to govern mine. If you do get vexed you get right over it.' "He was impatient and appeared to be irritable if things did not go right. He said I knew how to treat .him and how to take him. He had no books which treated of explosives unless it was Chambers' En cyclopedia. 1 do not know, if it contains anything on the subject. He was not com bative, lie never had any trouble before. Ho used to often quote this poetry: He either fears his fate too much. Or hH dcferts.aro small Who dares not put it to tho touch. To win or lose it all." Mr. and Mrs. Norcross called at the cor oner's office to-day, shortly before 12 o'clock, to get their eon's etlects. Word . has been sent to the family undertaker in Boston, who will employ an undertaker in this city to have the remains shipped. It is under stood that the parents will have tho head and remains cremated when thev reach home. Tho etlects were shown to the par ents of the unfortunate man by the coroner. Mrs. Norcross instantly identified the gloves and pocket-book. Tbe white handkerchief she was positive about. She carefully ex amined tho pieces of clothing, and was positive that they belonged to her son. Mrs. Norcross swore to tbe remarks she made to the coroner, and the statement went on file an her affidavit that the re mains were those of her eon. Mr. James E. Norcross also swore that the remains were his son's. He described his son's head, teeth, etc., in his statement, and gave a number of identitving marks by which ho was positive tho dynamiter was his son. The father described himself as a book keeper for Georgo A. Lawyer, No. 3 Quinoy Market, Boston. George O. Whiting, of Lexington. Mass., also e wore to his recog nition of the head by its general' appear ance. The coroner impaneled a jury this after noon. They viewed the remains of the dynamiter and wero then dismissed. Tho inquest will not be held until the tnioro- ecopic examination of tho brain is com pleted. , THAT POISONED 1YHISKL Nr. Worrell, Jr., Testifies in the Trial of Dr. Graves for Causing 31 rs.

He knew Mrs. Barnaby bad about $100,000, and she had talked about investing somo or most of this amount in Denver.

He modified this statement somewhat when a newspaper was produced which contained an interview with him on the subject. Mrs. Worrell, jr., was recalled, and tes tified that, after the fatul mickagehad been brought home from tho livery-stablo where it had remained all night in the buggy, it was placed on the dining-room table, where it remained for a day before the women drank from it. The prosecu tion will use this point to show that tbe Worroll's did not know tho contents, lor if they had they would not have placed it there where anyone could have drank of it. Mrs. Worrell also corrected a statement made by her servant girl to tho ellect that after Mrs. Barnaby's death she had been ordered to empty and clean all the bottles In tbe house. The girl was ordered to clean one, and pour into it somo tonio from a large bottle which Mrs. Worrell wanted to take with her on her journey. LATEST ALLIANCE SCHEME.

Miss Chevalier Visits the Harris Colony of Spiritualists and Exposes Its Yic:ouries. Man Francisco, Dec. 15. Miss A. L. Che valier, the lloatoji woman suflragist And re former, has just returned to San Francisco af tor six months spent in the Harris com munity. She visited Harris just after the letter was written which created so much of a stir in thePhillips Brooks controversy. She is profoundly disgusted with communi ty life, which was represented to her aa pure and spiritual. Her story is stronger and stranger than tho tale told of Harris by .Margaret Oliphant in her memoir of Laurence Oliphant. It was this same Har ris that made the lives of Lady Oliphant and her son Laurence so miserable, by tak ing away all their property and sotting them out to menial tasks that they might obtain high spirituality. Miss Chevalier went to.Fonntain Grove last June to enter the brotherhood of the new life, as Harris calls it. Sho found Fountian (irore a beautiful place. The es tate includes two thousand acres and forty thousand vines. Miss Chevalier found, among others in the community, Mrs. l'art mg, tho wealthy widow! of au East Indian collee planter, who had brought her two daughters and her young sister, all former ly of high English society, to the place to live uudor the spiritual care of the Pri mate, and had been lleeced out of a large fortune, .which she bad given to him. One of tho girls, an accomplinhed artist, is washing clothes for Harris, auotheris maid to his mistress, and another sets type for him. Prince Kagavazea, a Japanese, and one of his countrymen named Art nro mem bers of tho commnnity. Alias Chevalier found Harris very wealthy, though meat of his money has been brouuht to him by his poor dupes, that have Urst and last num bered several hundred. The Tritnate," who claims that he will never die, is an old man of marvelous hyp notic powers, which he has exerted over his subjocts for years. He eats oysters and drinks champagne, while they eat bacon and bread, lie dresses in long silk robes and wear white chamois gloves, while his dupes wear coarse clothing, till the soil and clean ont his stables. Mies Chevalier was shocked by these discoveries, but her ey es were opened when the prophet un folded his vile systom off "counterparts" that is, spiritual atftnities. When married peoplo join the communi ty they are at once seporated and are given their counterpart in the spiritual world. When they have lived in the community somo time' Harris pretends that these counterparts are embodied in the persons of bo mo member of community, and thus they are plunged into fret love. Harris, him self, she found, had as a counterpart Airs. Waring. She found that open violations of moral law was the rule among the mem bers, whose principles imd been corrupted by Harris. Sh6 found all the members un der the prophet's influence, and that she. herself, was not a free agent, as Harris hypnotized her whenever she came into his presence. When she announced that she was going away he tried every device to keep her. He said she would take the place of Alice, tho wifo of Laureuco Oliphant. lleeaid he had letters from Alico that if published would cause a sensation in England. Though ho treated Mr. Oliphant's book lightly, its exposures alarmed him greatly. Miss Chevalier declares she has umasi of evidence against Harris which sho pro poses to present to President Harrison, and ask him to break up this society, as was done with the Oneida commnnity. Among the people whom Harris has un der hypnotic control at the community are Mrs. Keqna. widow of a New York banker, and Mrs. Waring, who is a sister of Ueorgo L Waring, of Newport.

An examination of the gas-jet showed that it was turned on full, and that on retiring last night one of the brothers had hung his trousers on the jet, aud in doing so had probably turned the gas on, as the cock was very easily turned. m m m Oklahoma Seeking Statehood.

The manufacturer who will put up injurious fla voring extracts and label them of perfect purity and extra fine quality, is a thief nnd a scoundrel. To be safe confine yourself to the use of such flavors as your experience and judgment tell you are of the purest quality. Dr. Price's Delicious Flavoring Extracts, Vanilla, Lemon, Orange, etc., are just what they are represented to be.
