PSYCHOLOGY OF HATS.
To Be Considered at National Con
vention of Milliners.
Chicago, March 19. The psycho
logy of bonnets is the chief subject of
consideration at the convention of
the National Milliners' association
here today and tomorrow according to
Mme. Hunt, president of the associa
tion. In making the anmouacemient
President Hunt said:
"There certainly is a psychology of
hats, entirely aside from the fact that
ouls of the majority of women are
in their hats. If every woman would'
only look in the glass when trying on
hats instead of giving her undivided
attention to the hat or would, study
the outline of her face as seen under
the hat, she would then look with
scientific approval or disapproval
upon the hat. So few women do
that, you know. Fit th hat or bon
net to the face and you will always
look up to date and be a fashion
plate, not only in your own fancy,
but in the public's eye as well."
The Reward Not Big Enough.
Coffeyvllle. Kan., March 19. Un
less a larger reward is offered than
the $300 now up, for the capture of
the Tyro bank robbers, there will be
little effort to capture the outlaws.
John J. Kloehr, chief of police of this
city, stated that the novelty of a
search by posse had worn off, and'
that a larger reward would have to
offered if the search is continued.
Even those who are of a daring na
ture will not risk their lives for $300.

HE WAS MURDERED.
Charles Bennett Waa Buried In Sep
tember as a Suicide.
Pittsburg, March 19. The body of
Charles Bennett, buried last September
at Carrick, a suburb, as a suicide, has
been disinterred and an autopsy held,
which shows that Bennett was mur
dered. The disinterment and investi
gation was made by officials of Wheel
ing, W. Va., at which place Charles
Cook, his girl wife, and Joseph White
are under arrest, charged with the
murder. Cook and his wife are al
leged to have confessed to the crime,
implicating White.
The alleged murder was committed
on the West Virginia state fair
grounds. Wheeling Island, the night of
September 21, and robbery was the
object. Bennett, who was only 16
years old, was selling novelties at the
fair, trying to earn money to take him
to college, and he displayed $45 in a
public place. Mrs. Cook, then Lila
Kane, a pretty, childish girl, according
to her confession, enticed Bennett to
a secluded spot where he was assault
ed and beaten on the head until either
dead or unconscious and his body
thrown into the river. Four days later
the body was found in Belmont coun
ty, Ohio, and after a superficial ex
amination, the coroner rendered a ver
dict of suicide and sent the body to
relatives here for interment.
Cook, who had been playing the
piano in saloons, and the girl, who
gave roller skating exhibitions, ac
cording to the confession, used the
money secured to defray their wedding
and honeymoon expenses. Cook, it is
said, gave the first clue to the crime
during an attack of despondency,
while drinking. The confession follow
ed after a sweating process.

New Tork, March 19. Abe Hum

serve a year in the penitentiary for
conspiracy In connection with the

leased from prison today. His term
was reduced to about ten months by
the allowances made for good be
havior. Hummel had been notified
that he was to leave the island on the
work house boat at 7 o'clock this
morning, but he chose to wait until a
little later, when the regular boat
would make a special trip across the
river for him.

the boat in company with his nephew
Abe H. Kaffenberg. Arriving at the
pier on the New Tork shore they
made a quick dash to a waiting auto
mobile and were whirled away before
anyone could put a question to Hum
mel. It is said that arrangements
have been made by Hummel's friends
for him to sail for Europe within a
fe wdays in hope of recuperating his
health which has been very poor since
he has been in the penitentiary.
