gold watches and vnluablo rings compris

goods being evidently of no value to the

professionals nnd understood their busi

of tho kind In tho city, also choosing the
parly hours of Sunday morning for their
operations, ns tho robliery would not be
discovered until a very lato hour, it was
first discovered by n clerk, Thomos Mo
ling!!, on entering the store at 10:13 a. m.
A sledgo-hammer, tcrowers, etc., lying
about the floor, nnd bits of paper panted to
tho windows, nt onco aroused his srspl
clous. On going to tho rear ot the store he
noticed the gas-light was hurntntOlow,
which usually was left ot full head, and
upon further Investigation found tho safe
open, tho contents strewn about, and a kit
ot burglars' tools told tho story. lie nl
onco notified thspollco and his employer,
Mr. Htowe, who was at church. F.ntrance
to tho store was obtained through a
basement window In tho rear of the
building. After gaining entrance to tho
cellar and crawling over Inixes and up
tho stoirway they found tho doornt tho
head at tho stairs locked. They bored a
hole through the panel, but finding It too
llow work they pried tlio door op with a
Ilmuiy, thus leaving tho way clear to the
lofo and its valuablo contents. Turning ha
las to a glimmer they commenced opera
tions nt breaking the safe. Tho bar across
tho two doors wns removed, anil the cover
ing to the keyhole wns taken from Its pnd
lock fastenings next. To separate the
wrought-lron shell of the door from tho

this point by aid of powerful tools the bolts
were spuing from their sockets and tho Job
wns done, and nothing l etnalncd but to toko
their choice nnd iiuletlv make their exit.
One feature of the job was tho selection of

This community Is now lalwrltig under
tho most Intense excitement over tho dis
covery last night of ono of tho most shock
ing and revolting cases of murder and sul
eldo ever occurring In this part of Ohio.
New s reached hero oliout midnight that Al
bert l'rlzer, living ono and a half miles
north of Lock 12, Frje's Creek Volley, on
tho Ohio Canal, bad murdored his threo
children and his wlfo and then killed him
It seems that last night about tight
o'clock Mr. J. Nleslmum, brother-ln-la.rol
Mr. Frlzer, ennio along the road past rei
ser's houio and noticed that tho cow In the
Iwwn-yard wns rnthor restless Mr. Nlcs
baum mado an Investigational!,! found that
th) nnlmal had not been milked for
several days, nnd thinking this vory
strange, ho repaired to the house
and found tho doors nil lo).ed and
bolted, the windows nailed down am! tho
blinds all drown. He colled a few neigh
bors and then commenced to Inspect tho
premises. On peeping through a window,
the curtain of which was portly drawn
aside, they were horrified nt beholding
blood stalns-on the floor and nlso a man's
foot covered with blood near the window.
Lighting a lantern Uiey raised tho wlr
nnd entered the house, when a lionvilu
spectaclo presented Itself. On tho Hi.
near tho north window In tho cast room of
the building, lay tho iU"ail lody of Allmrt
Frlzer, while lu a crib standing against tho
sldo of tho room, not three feet from the
father, lay the dead bodlos of his two oldest
children. On n bed on I he other sldo of tho
room lay the mangleJ remains of Mrs.
Frlzer, with tho dead body of hor Infant
clasped In her nrmi. Everything lu tho
loom seemed 'well arranged, showing no
signs of a scullte, nnd tho i vldeuco seems to
lie that Frlrer murdered his whole family
w bile thoy wero asleep and then killed him-
Mrs. Frlzer was found with hor throat cut
from ear to ear, and tho Infant In lied with
her must have lieeii beaten to death with
some blunt Instrument, ns it was covered
w ith blood. Both tho mother and tha child
wero beneath tho bed clothes, ond thoy
probably died w Ithout a struggle. The two
ni.in,- rMMrpii. imth llttlo irlrls aged about
three and five years respectively, wore
lying In tho crib with their feet toward
each othor and both had their heads beaten
almost to a Jelly with somobluut lnstru-
nient. ..... . .
On examining Frlzer's toco It was found
to havo lioen blown almost completely off,
and an empty gun ban el which laid against
a chair near him told how bo had klllod
himself. Tho gun had no stock or hammer,
and tho wretched man must novo luaumi
tho barrel and then held ono end n his
mouth and the other In tho Homo of n lamp
till It exploded, as tho lump was found
shattered to pieces on tho floor.
Thi. horrible docd must havo been dono
on Sunday night, as on that night thoy
were last seen alivo. On Sunday avonlng
Mr. Filzer's brother-in-law, Mr. Judy, had
a talk with blm, nndou that occasion ! ri
ser told blm ho had been to Now Comers
town nnd consulted Dr. Beers, nnd that ho
had advised Frlzer to quit wrk for nwlillo
until his health got better, as ho bad been
sick for somo time. It Is thought that
on tho fatal Sunday night Frlzer must have
becomo very dcsjioiideiit and temporarily
insane, from brooding over his having to
clvo un earning his living. Ho was not in
tho bust circumstances.
Tho houso in which tho horrible tragedy
occurred Is a story-and-a-liulf framo struc
ture, and stands nlono on tho road to
Fryo's Crock Valley, n fow rods from a
church anil school-house. It Is tho some
house wliere Mrt. Frlzer was born and bo
longs to her erandiiiotlie.. Tho prem
ises around tho house nro In splendid con
dition, everything having tho appearance
of iicatnri i nnd good order. Frlzor was n
carp:itr by occupation, and wns highly
respected In his community. Ho was about
thirty-two years of ago.
Nothing has ever occurred In this section
that has caused such Intense excitement,
nnd tho news of tho terrlblo crime spread
llko wild-lire, and hundreds from an over
the surrounding country vlsltod tho prem
ises to-day. The general opinion seoms to
prevail that Frlzer was undoubtedly In
sano, ns no monstorcould have perpetrated
such a deliberate ond cold-blooded murder
In bis sano moments. The tragedy sonds
n entire family Into eternity.

belonging to Her Mnjosty's war-ship
Urlfllii, now nt this port. Thoro wero
onby six persons present, Including two

Tho prisoner had boon dreading tlio
Infliction of tho lash, but had not been
Informed of tho Impending whipping
until tlio medical olllcer entered tho Jnll

whipping stood thoro quietly pulling a

tho work before him. II j hold In his
hand two slender "cat." The whip
beyond tho handle was a littlo over a
foot in lene-th, the nine tails nt the end
of each bearing several small, hnrd
knots. Tho material was of no greater
thloknois llinti nn ordinary llshliig-llne,
but very tough. Walking over to where
tin) sailor stood, Doyle graspud hlin by

him to be ns ensy n possible and not to

Immediately tho work of soourltig
Doyle to the Inm trlanglo was per

strapped apart, each lo ono of the Iron

being held nbovo his head by n suspend

one of tho two "cats" In his right hnnd.
It wns raised nbovo his bond. "Count,"
ho cried to ono of those present, nnd tho
whip descended with a sharp report on
tho prisoner's nakod ba-k, striking right

A Man Considered ns n Harmless Crank

Waiiubktok, Mo, Oct. 21.
Tbo citizens of this place havo to-night
n ltnessed a horrible spectacle. A man by
tho name of Keeney, who was considered a
harmless crank, has beon wandering
arouud town n day or two, and this ovon
Intfi as ho was cold and wet, tho authorities
locked him up In tho large room adjoining
tha jail, under the Court-house, A goal,
hot flro was burning In tho coal stovo, and
tho Jailer left him there and went to supper.
Somo timoafterwardporsonspasslnjron the
street heard terrible cries In that direction,
and on going to ascertain tho cause saw
Keoney standing up nndliuggliiRtho red-hot
stovo and his clothes ou Are. The door was
broken and tbo man snatched away as
quickly as possible, but too lata to savo
him from n terrrtble death. The flesh from
his breast, arms and faco was literally
roasted. Dr. Kamlach was called In and
pronounced the caso hopeless. Keeney Is
the same man who was knocked oft the rail
road track at tho lied Hill brldgo last
spring and crippled. lie was for some time
afterward nuilo rational, and no ono
dreamed he was so insane ns to walk Into
the jaws of death in this fashion.
Tho excitement over the strange death ot
Keenoy has hordly died nway boforo wo
have a second. Daniel Kile went to the
woods with fcls gun and It Is supposed shot
himself, his dlothes taking flro and bis body
