WE BARRY'S GRIME The Awful Story to Be Rehearsed in 'Court. MISS BARRY HAS SINCE DIED Her Brother Killed Her Lover and the Shook Wa« Too Much for Her. Special to The Journal. Langdon, N. D.. July 15.—T0-morrow at noon will be opened in the district court of Judge Kneeshaw in this city one of the most celebrated murder cases ever tried in North Dakota. The state will take up the charge of murder in the first degree against William Barry, a wealthy farmer from the vicinity of Milton, who stands accused of the cold-blooded killing of An drew Melelen, one of his farm hands, early on the morning of Jan. 3. There is a terrible story attached to this tragedy. Barry will pose In the trial as the frantically insane avenger of the undoing of his sister, Miss Mary Ann Barry, who has since died at the James town insane asylum a physical and men tal wreck, the result of the shock given her by the killing of her lover by her brother. The crime took place in the barn on the Barry farm last January, when the taking of the life of Mellen, who had been one of the murderer's hired men for over five years, and looked upon almost as one of the family, was deliber ate and cold-blooded. Barry first tried to hang his victim from one of the beams overhead, but not having the rope se cured he took a knife and with a single gash in the neck sent his victim into eternity, Mellen dying two minutes after the blow was struck. The defense will fight the case on the grounds of temporary insanity and have witnesses from tie Ontario home of the Barry family, as well as expert testi mony that the disease is hereditary. The defense will make a desperate effort to exclude the confession of Barry at the in quest. Since being jailed six months ago, Barry has been reticent as to the history of bis crime, a marked contrast to his volubility up to the time his lawyers took the case in hand. The ante-mortem statement of Miss Barry taken at her bedside shortly before death at the insane asylum has been with held from the public by the state with the greatest secrecy and something een sational is looked for when it is brought into court Barry is considered to be worth something like $15,000 to $20,000. BLACK EYE, UNCUT GRASS STRAXGE CAUSE! OF CHURCH ROW Clerk Haley Pan a Fine for Affixing a Blemish. Upon - a Deacon's Countenance. Maw York Sun Spmolat Smrvlom. Stonington, Conn., July 15.— a result of a church row, which promises to dis rupt the Second Congregational church of this place. Deacon Theophils T. Hyde is carrying a black eye and George W. Haley, clerk of the church and a much respected citizen, has been fined in the borough court for felonious assault. One faction of the church is demanding that the pastor, the Rev. William C. Stiles, resign at once. Another faction supports him. He insists that he 'will not leave and as a result he preached yesterday to many empty pews. Though the pastor* preached on the topic "For let him among you who Is without sin cast the first stone," he made no references to the church troulble. Attentions paid to one of the women parishioners by the minister started the trouble, and ..a committee was. appointed to investigate the matter. Clerk Haley is one of the most • determined opponents of the ■pastor, while Deacon Hyde is his strongest supporter. The two men are neighbors and were formerly close friends. At a meeting a few days ago Deacon Hyde remarked during a heated discussion that it was a noticeable fact that the grass on the grave of late Deacon Joshua Haley, son of Clerk Haley, had not been cut. Mr. Haley was not present, " but when he learned of the deacon's remark he visited him and demanded a retraction. As this was not forthcoming, Mr. Haley let loose a right awing which floored tie deacon. The latter got up to meet a left hook from Haley, which knocked him down again. "You'll pay for this," shouted the dea con. Haley.did pay; for In Judge Rath bun's court he was fined $2 and $11.50 costs, -which he settled.

St. Pau 1 j RUSSIA'S COMING FAMINE NO SALVATION FOR THE CROPS No Rain Since Early June, and Rain Now Would Be of No Benefit. Correspondence of the Associated Press. St. Petersburg, July 2.—Large parts of the empire are again threatened with famine. The last official report, which has just been published, was dated June 21. Since then not a drop of rain has fallen in the eastern province, and it is believed that the crops are now largely beyond hope in many districts. The provinces of Samara and Saratoff will probably witness a recurrence of the dearth of two or three years ago, and a dearth in these provinces is particularly dreaded on account of the ignorance and helplessness of the Bash kirs and Tartars who make up a consid erable part of the population there. The newspaper Volkar states that from all sides reports are coming in that both winter and summer grain are beyond hope of salvation, even should there be ample rains, and no hay at all will be har vested. Since early June the temperature has been about 101 and no rain has fallen. The fields are burned and brown and the feeding of cattle and horses has already begun to be a problem. The same kind of reports are coming from the province of Kazan. The Volga provinces have al ready been visited by two severe famines during the last ten years, and the popula tion has lost whatever power it once pos sessed to withstand famine. HEROINE AND HAD DOG GIRL. SHOW'S COURAGE HEN LACK Young Woman Save* People of Klgiii, in., From tbe Bite* of a Frenzied Dog, Special to The Journal. Elgin, 111., July 15. —The bravery of a 16-year-old girl in capturing and locking up a mad dog after the men in the neigh borhood had sought places of safety saved several persons from being bitten last evening. Previous to that the dog had bitten one small boy and created conster nation among the persons seated on the verandas and lawns of the fashionable res idence district of the city. The dog was a large beagle hound and the pet of Miss Mabel Wedell. Last evening, while Harry Zimmerman was delivering groceries at a neighboring house, the dog ran through the back yard and up to him on the porch. He spoke to the animal, which made a lunge at him, growling and with mouth open as far as the leather muzzle would permit. Drop ping the flve-gallon gasolene can which ha carried, he started on a run for his deliv ery wagon, with the dog grabbing at his heels. He reached the wagon in safety. The dog then attacked Ralph Burnidge and grabbed him by the calf of the leg. Screaming with pain and fright, the boy turned to face the animal. As he did so the dog released its hold on the boy's leg and sprang at his throat. The animal did not reach him at the first leap, and as it was crouching to spring again the boy threw a valise in front of it and escaped. The dog started down the street. By this time the people, with one exception, had fled from their lawns and were peering through their screen doors and windows. A lone man was watching a bonfire across the street from the Wedell home. As the dog made for him and he started for the house on a run, Miss Mabel Wedell ran out from the front door of her home. The dog's attention was attracted by her whistle. The dog sprang toward her. Un daunted, she Jumped nimbly aside and caught the animal by the collar. She led the large dog, alternately lunging forward at her and dragging backward to get away, the length of the yard, and, unassisted, managed to close the sliding door, shut ting him in the carriage barn. The animal was shot. SHEDS PINS AND NEEDLES VICTIM OF A VOODOO DOCTOR Negro Woman Becomes a Pin Cush ion as the Result of Un canny "Spells." Mmw York Sun Snccfal Sarvioo Lexington, Ky., July 15.—Parthenia How ard Young, a negro woman here, has been shedding needles and pins since one day last week, and altogether forty-nine frag ments, enough metal to make thirty entiro pins, have been taken from her fingers and toes.

To-day Dr. Allen removed twenty-one pieces. The woman's mother says her daughter has been voo dooed. The spell, she says, was placed on her ten years ago by a voodoo doctor who was madly in love with her, and whom she rejected for another suitor. After she jilted the doctor she became ill, and pins and needles were taken from her spine. Since this time she had five other similar spells. Several physicians have gone to see her, and they cannot account for her strange condition, except by saying that when a child she had swallowed the pin 3 and needles and that they are finding their way out.
