I FOUR HOURS OF FIERCE BATTLE Man and Wife Succumb to Terrible Injuries in Fight to Death in Arkansas. WEST PI.A1NS. Mo.. September 21.? After a remarkable battle in the Ozark mountains near Prestonia, Ark., yesterday between a sheriff's posse and John Roberts and his wife, barricaded in their home. Sheriff Leo Moonev and Mrs. Roberts are dead. Roberts is dying and three members of the posse are more or less seriously wounded. Roberts Saturday night assassinated Obe Kessinger, an act that called out the sheriff's posse. Moonev met death at the hands of Mrs. Roberts, who fought with extraordinary fierceness and bravery, defending her husband and her home until she fell. After four hours of long-range fighting the posse stormed and carried the house. Mrs. Roberts was found lying beneath a window, a rifle clasped in her stiffening fingers and blood oozing from fourteen wounds. Roberts was shot eight times. The sanguinary affair was the outcome of a feud between Roberts and his neighbor. Kessinger. of almost a year's standing. Both lived in the heart of the Ozarks. and, like true mountaineers. shunned the courts of justice to settle their differences, recognizing the right of might only. Roberts Murders His Neighbor. Roberts rode Saturday night over to Kcssinger's cabin and hallooed to him to come outside. Kesslnger threw the door wide open and stood in the light from the lamp in the cabin behind him?an easy target. Without a word Roberts raised his rifle and fired, tIre bullet taking Gessinger squarely in the forehead. As his enemy pitched forward on his face Roberts turned and rode away, while the dead man's wife carried the body into the cabin and then rode six miles to Prcstonia. the nearest settlement, from where news of the murder was telephoned to Mountain Home, the county scat of Baxter county. Sheriff Mooney organized a posse of six deputies and arrived in sight of the place just before noon. Mrs. Roberts, who was at a well, was warned by the galloping of the horses and. calling to her husband as she ran. disappeared in the cabin. She reappeared at the door in an instant, holding a repeating rifle in her hands. As the posse, led by the sheriff, dashed toward the cabin, she called to them, warning them away Fierce Amazon Opens Fire. As they approached closer she opened Are. her first shot hitting the sheriff, who fell from his horse mortally wound ed. His fall disconcerted the members of the posse for a few minutes and while they carried the dying man to the edge of the woods Roberts and his wife barricaded the cioor of their cabin. They then took up positions at windows. Mrs. Roberts commanded the rear of the house, where the posse first attacked, and her husband fired from a side window, preventing a flank movement on the part of the posse. Mat L"'w:ty, a farmer and member of the posse, was shot as he peered from behind a tree to take aim, a bullet from one of the rifles in the cabin taking off the tip of his nose. His son. who ventured close to the besieged, was shot in the hip as he made a rush toward the door. When the posse had tried without avail for three hours to capture the cabin and were in consultation in the woods, Sneriff Conkin of Ozark county and his deputy, Lyman Steven, who had heard over tiie telephone that a posse iiad gone into the mountains, joined them and assisted in trie next assault. Both Defenders Found Dying. Reinforced, the men attempted to make a concerted attack on the cabin from all sides, but were unab'-e to get past the clearing and around the cabin, so deadly and rapid was Robert's fire from the window. Frequently they saw Mrs. Roberts' head at the windows as she took hasty aim and fired at tree or stump whicn sheltered a deputy. It was impossible to follow her movements, so rapidly did she fiic from the different openings in the eabir. walls. The posse were loath to shoot at the woman, and though she was hit fourteen times each wound was made bv a strav bullet, or one that had first penetrated the wall. After every assault had failed the posse decided to make one more effort to surround the cabin, taking a wide detour. Wnile one detachment mounted and rode away the other again opened fire to deceive the besieged. Their fire drew no responses. and some of the bolder crept up to a window and peered in. Roberts had fallen near a window and the unconscious form of his wife was lying across him. as though she had attempted to go to him when he fell. Her right hand was clenched around tHe stock of her rifle, which was empty, and her dress was saturated with blood from the wounds in her head and body. 1 WARRENTON AND NEARBY. || - 'i Special Correspondence of The Star.

CRIMES AND THINGS UNSINFUL Aberdeen's Great Institutions of Learning?Their Advantages and Their Social Side. 1 BY WILLIAM K. CIRTIS. Special Correspondence of The Star and the Chicago Reoord-Herild. ABERDEEN. September 15.?If you should ask the first person you meet upon the street in the city of Aberdeen he will tell you that the new university building is the finest granite structure ever erected by human hands, and the largest in the world except the Escorial of Philip II in the mountains north of Madrid. It was completed two years ago. after being several years under construction, and was dedicated in the summer of liW*> in the presence of his majesty the king. It is an imposing structure of pointed Gothic with a wilderness of windows, pinnacles and minarettes, and a stately tower that rises from the rear of the quadrangle, the gift of Dr. Mitchell, an alumnus connected with the firm of Armstrong & Co., battleship builders and founders of great guns. If the building stood where it could be seen it might produce, a greater impression. but it is closely surrounded by olufasftioned shops and residences, with only a narrow street on either side, so narrowthat there is no point from which a photn^ranhir ram pra ran pftvAr thr fararlo It is of the same school of architecture as the parliament house at London, but it does not seem so large and it certainly is not so beautiful. The great Victoria clock tower in London is much superior to that of the University of Aberdeen. Nevertheless it is a glorious building, and the interior arrangements, are as ndmirahle as the exterior design. Each department?medicine, law. civil engineering. electricity, geology, anatomy, agriculture. astronomy, architecture and the other sciences?too numerous to mention. Has 617 Different Courses. A recent writer says that it is possible for a student at Aberdeen to graduate in t>17 different courses, each "self-contained." and in a separate and compact section of the building. The professo.and his assistants have a study each, connected with a reference library, a museum. a series of laboratories, a lecture room and other accommodations, all arranged in the most convenient manner and separated from every other part of the institution. A student of botany, for example, has everything he needs within reach of his own classroom without goiflf to t hh PT nfiru 1 IU?rorv nr o ni? r\t linr "O >' I "I Iiuiai , \r L ail,> Willi I part of the building, and a student of theology has the same advantages. The walls are thick, the ceilings are high, the corridors wide and airy, and every other requirement, sanitary as well as intellectual, is satisfied. The library is a splendid hall with a grained oak ceiling. The hall where degrees are conferred and dances are given by the students Is an artistic conception carried out in perfect style. There Are Five Schools. There are five schools under the university?arts. medicine, law, divinity and science?the latter department being subdivided into several important branches, such as agriculture, natural sciences, engineering. etc.. so that a student at Aberdeen may find instruction in any line of learning he may aspire to. The curricula in the annual calendar?which costs ?! and $t> at the book store?covers seventyeight pages, and Prof. Bullock says a student might graduate in half a million different ways if he could take advantage of all the combinations involved in these courses. The school of arts is at King's College in old Aberdeen, about a mile and a half away, which necessitates an explanation. New Aberdeen dates back about ten centuries. Old Aberdeen was founded in prehistoric times and still retains an air of antiquity which the modern part of the town has been deprived of by the enterprising citizens, who have filled its streets with splendid buildings of granite. Founded by Lord Elphinstone. The center of old Aberdeen is King's College, founded in 14H."? by Bishop El-1 phinstone. lord chancellor of Scotland in ! the reign of James III, lord privy seal in, the reign of James IV and famous as the first great scholar ever produced in Scotland. He was remarkable for his learning and ability in several directions?a diplomatist of the highest rank, a lawyer unsurpassed by his contemporaries, a legislator who sat as a leader in the Scottish parliament for thirty years, an eeclesiast'c who ruled over the church with consummate success, a man of broad and thorough learning, an orator of wonderful power, and in other respects the greatest intellect of his generation. He was born in Glasgow in 14."..'?, the son of the rector of St. Michael's Church; graduated with the first class from Glasgow University, and studied theology to become his father's curate. He undoubtedly would have succeeded to the paternal pulpit and led the quiet life of a country parson had not an admirln? uncle given him money to take a vacation trip abroad. He did not return for many years, and in the meantime had taken decrees at the University of Orleans and the University of Paris. He served as professor of law at the former institution and?attained such fame for legal learning that he was frequently consulted by the Prpnph Government. In 1474 he was called home to become rector of Glasgow Cniversity and was immediately elected to the Scottish parliament. His public career extended through the reigns of the first five Jameses. His field of influence included five countries. He wrote the first church service hook and the first history of the Scottish saints. He was the earliest historian of his church, presided over three great universities and founded one of them. He died at Dunfermline October 2."?, 1514. seventy-three years old. and his imposing tomb may be seen in the exquisite little chapel of King's College. Marischal College and Its Founder. Marischal College was founded in Aberdeen in 1503, just ninety-eight years later * U ? ? 1/!???? 4 'ol lonro Kv i lanrfft I*' nit li liia.ll rvniha vvii'fti * \jw. n" earl marischal of Scotland, whose laconic reply to the admonitions of the Scottish parliament on a certain occasion is carved over the entrance to the new buildings: Thar lisif said: Qnbat thay nay; I.at thame say. * This is quite ambiguous to uninformed readers, and it would be necessary to recite a long chapter in history to make it entirely clear, but these three oracular exclamations mean that the earl marischal was not frightened by the warnings of parliament concerning the freedom with which he turned over church and government property to the new university. He had no comments to make, except to remark that "They have said what they have said." and l! was not a matter of any importance to him if they continued to discuss the subject. For 270 years after Marischal College was founded there was a bitter rivalry between the two institutions, and. although they were consolidated in 1S?0 by a commission, consisting of the father of the present Duke of Argyle. the father of the present Earl of Aberdeen, the Earl of Elsemere. the Earl of Inglies and other famous men, the jealousy of the two institutions has not entirely disappeared. Kings College occupies hufldings that are very old, and there the students of the classics, the languages, philosophy, literature and other branches of the j?

The genial old concierge who showed us around told us Kings College was still the real thing, while the new building down in New Aberdeen was a parvenu affair tliaf did not deserve much notice. On the other hand, at the new buildings we were informed that Kings was a venerable but rather insignificant Institution, and unless we had plenty of time It would scarcely pay us to make it a visit. Kings College a Reminiscence. Nevertheless both institutions a~e supposed to lie - working in poiffe and harmony as Kings College ami Marischal j College, composing together the Cniversity ' of Aberdeen. All public functions take I place in tlie splendid hall in the new j building. The executive offices are also j 41 ? wa oonforro.l thapu ortrl i inert*. u?*si rr.-? <uc ^ . .< .... , ,.,lw in the evolution of the iwins Kings College is becoming more and more of a reminiscence and Marischal more and more of a progressive, modern factory for turning out doctors, lawyers, agriculturalists and engineers. Kings College, however, is a dear old place, full of ripe, rich beauty as well as reminiscences. As it stands today it is only a relic of the enormous institution which Elphinstone founded like a ! master builder, with a large library, a palace where the bishop resided in state, a quadrangle where his chaplains had I chambers, manses where the professors resided, and cloisters that for two hundred years were crowded with students from all parts of Scotland. All this except two rather small buildings and the chapel has passed away. The buildings have been destroyed by fanatics on both [ sides of theological controversies which j have occupied them in turn, and each faction has endeavored to ruin them while the other was in power. Taught Theology Both Ways. j Aberdeen is not the only city that Has had two universities. Washington has I three. Each of the institutions hero has records that are unique in several respects. Marischal, for example, was tlie first university in the I'nited Kingdom ta establish a faculty of medicine. There were no miedical professorsships at Cambridge until 1.140, nor at Oxford until l.~>4ft. Both institutions have gone from one extreme to the other in theology anil have taught in turn the infallibility of the pope anil the infallibility of John Calvin and John Knox. They have used both the methods of Rome and of Geneva to lead the people of Scotland out of the darkness of theological ignorance, but now the Synod of Aberdeen determines the brand of the theology used there. Shortly after the reformation, when the universities were 'righted" by John Knox and his associates, the students were given very large doses of the principles of Christianity as understood by the Presbyterian divines. They had prayers and read the Scriptures in the Oreek version four times a day. and the presiding professor expounded the lessons I to be drawn therefrom. Sermons of inordinate length wre delivered Sunday after Sunday, but that was the rule all over Scotland where the thought of the seventeenth century was exclusively theological and the intellect of the people was monopolized by the pulpit. Sometimes Rev. John Mendies. professor of [ divinity during the latter part of the seventeenth century, "keipet churche all day." hammering the heads of the students and the members of the faculty with gospel weapons and with such fer1 vor that his entire clothing would be urs 8 a.ni. to 6 p.m. Satui >urgh <! i St. 417 t Unties !P<n>r Tlhns Wf U V> M U U U at luit iDepa 'rincess Dress iti black, navy, smo cs, full plaited over shoulders', flare that we will offer this week at... \mama Skirts; Women's i" d folds.

"Some crymes were punished corporallie, others by pecunial mulct, and grosser crymes by extrusion." The regulations included two hours' recreation every afternoon, and the dean appointed proctors to look after students who might play truant 1 f rnm t ho f/Wit Kill (uil.lc 1 I in rrnl f lira lrc At* i I "III I lie l win I/Ull IIV IMI', x i ?* ^vit Iiiinn WI the bowling green. Billiard rooms were also titted up for tlie use of tne students. There is a billiard room in Marischal College, now attached to a suite of elubi rooms in the basement of Mitehell Hall, under the supervision of the "University I'nion." That organization is the center of social life and the management of college sports here as in other Scottish universities. The union maintains a reading j room; it is the headquarters of the debat- | ing societies; it looks after all athletic , * contests, dances and other social and ceremonial functions among the students who are scattered throughout the city in boarding houses and have no other place of assembly. There are no fraternities, dining clubs | o- similar organizations in the Scottish universities to supply the place of the college dormitories and refreetories at Cambridge and 'Oxford and those on the continent. But. nevertheless, there is at good deal of college spirit and many more social gatherings than one would expect under tii? circumstances. Scant Social Activity. There is very little social activity in j Scotland anywhere compared with England and the I'nited States. The Scotch are not a frivolous people, as everybody knows. Balls are very infrequent, and teas are as dull as a theological inquisition. The students at the University of. Aberdeen are mostly sons of poor people. The institution is comparatively local In its influence and usefulness. It maybe compared iu this respect to our state universities in the west. The nobility and the rich commoners send their sons to Oxford or Cambridge instead of to Aberdeen or St. Andrews. The students are not wasting their small incomes on bouquets or banquets. Education is a very serious matter with them, because their parents at home arc scrimping themselves to pay the tuition fees. Therefore whatever social life there is is managed upon a simple and economical scale. Carnegie Again Pays the Fees. Mr. Carnegie has marie it possible for thousands of young men" in Scotland to get a university education by placing in the hands of a board of trustees the sum of $-?,O0O.OOO, the interest upon which is applied to the payment of the fees of worthy students who cannot afford the expenditure. He will not pay matriculation fees nor board bills; lie will not furnish them books or clothing, but after a student is once established in the university and has shown himself worthy of assistence this assistance is offered him as a reward rather than as an inducement. Not less than HOO.OTiO of Mr. Carnegie's money was applied to such a purpose last year. The Cniverslty of Aberdeen, like the other three universities of Scotland, is an co-educational institution, there being 1H4 women students here, most of whom are educating themselves to become teachers and a few to become physicians. Women physicians are quite popular in Scotland. The loilowlug table shows the number ' X'XX'X'XXX rdays 9 p.m. | 5: Bro.
