Cashier Hart, the suicide, and Assist

will reach $125,000, and possibly
more,' is tbe opinion of State Bank Ex-
nnifoift 1 It' TVmirhtmi. ; who impnt
devoted nearly a week to trying to
such a long period that long and tedi
ous work Is necessary to go through
all the transactions. He has come to
the concluslou that tbe defalcations
ready to make their final raid and get
have been going on for seven years
or longer, but that It has been only
within tbe past few mouths that they
have beeu hi very considerable
amounts. He believes tbe cashiers
found themselves so deeply involved
that thev deanalred of ever covering
their tracks sufficiently to prevent
ultimate detection and deliberately set
In to loot tbe bank. ' The discovery,
however, he thinks, came sooner than
they expected and before they were

known ,lioss maker, lost $800

that were disturbing Mrs. Katmau.
Just what they were has not yet been

claimed to have been obtained was
from n well to do negro woman.
Madam Hunter read her palm an1
told her she would very soon break
out with terrible sores un.ess some
counteracting spell waa worked by
her. . That she bad been conjured
to have these sores develope. For
the 1300 she gave Ler a talisman
that would ward off the affliction.
It waa a email wooden box securely
sealed. The victim waa toldi that
if she opened the box she Voul'i
die. Chief of Police S'ell opcijed it
when the woman brought it to him
and found that it contained som
"blackish i powders." Some of this
he says he rubbed between his
