It would appear that If you had intended to kill her then yoursolf then you would not havo commenced on yourself; you would finish, not go back to her and bo stooping ovor her with a sclf-inllictcd wound.

The world has always given U the people of Herculuneum aud Pompeii credit for having lived with grout nerve over u volcano, but the Kansas joint keeper would have slept un harmed through tho uproar of Vesuvius. Tho ICiuisa.s Jigger man lives over many volcanoes. Ou complaint of George Ferguson Wednosday tho- place; of William Framplon was raided and tho man and his machinery wero gathered lu by the police. Frampton Is a joint keeper and he made- Mr. Ferguson angry. Ferg peached und Framp was pinched. There- lies tho trouble. If a jointlst sells to anybody and everybody he is pulled for running too open; If he gets paitlculur ho Is pulled by an angered acquaintance. Tho ItEin.vmt doesn't say that Mr. Ferguson putronlxed the place, but ho novor lectured on temperance --at least not in lola-and his sudden change to wrath could hardly havo been gturdod nyalnst by Fruinpton, siivo by going out of buslnoss. Sovoral prominent cliWcuh wero cited in tho complaint us qualified witnesses to prove tho soven sales charged, and so because of u misstep Mr. Frampton has in his near prospective a court sentence ot -120 days in jail and S210 fine, or both unless he can disprove some of the charges. l.
