THEY FOUGHT FOR LOVE.
Miss Lonkey, Suare of Tht Ir Devotlon for
Ier. Stal's the MIlII.
.Nom.-: I , Aiinn., Aug. 28.-Charles
Lenott, and Burtl Revier, two valiant
Frenchmen. both int love, had a light re.
uently for the iauid ol'Nellio L.onkey.
Both were handsome, so Nellie thought.
Neiluer of tliem Is fair to look upon
itow. The nmih was interrupted betore
Lh, ight had vot to a finish and Nellie is
still n sotnietlihig of' a cquandary. But
her wits were all shanken up and her
overbaluaced ( llections will settle down
uln Lenout'sside of, thle fence.
The way of it was this: Nellie lkes a
"mill" us well as ".Ja.k" McAuliffe or
"J,immy" Wakely, and when matters
nme to the pass that she didn't, know
which horn of the dilemma. Revier or
Lenlout, to sewe, she )ropos "I a ring and
wo-ounce gloves. Under the cover of'
Lhe night the varty repaired to a (Imet
place. Miss Lonkey sat iv the buggy
walchim.r the lht and saved the princi
pals the expenme of a referee.
Each had a sceon(d and a bottle of ar
nica, but no gloves. Neither had much
light, in him, but there was Miss Lonkey,
lind she eged them on. lLevier h d the
more science, but the fewer pounds. Le
noul was twenty pounds the heLter in
'veiuht, anld heZ! indulged in light, exercise
an the sharp leatures of Mr. Revier, be
ing quite fresh in the very first round.
The latter. bi coming breathless and very
grougy. was sent ont to the ropes handil y
by the deft dukes of' Lenout.
But, 8trange to say, the muss of III III
in the other corner, getting sight, of' the
feather in Miss Likey's hat, gathered
itsell touether and had a far-away smile
on its , celstake countenance when time
was culled. The girl finally got more of
this than she wanted. She re lly liked
Lenout bist. There were manire I)ounda
of uvoirdupo;se about him, and lie had
more bank stock. Sit, wanted to save
him for hersel!.
VhIle the bellIgereuts w-re sit,ting in
their corners waitig for time an If'ea
a ruck her. The horses were skittish,
and when the pwimcipals shook hatiIs for
tl-e third round she cracked the whip
and awaY the horses ran. She couldn't
stoll the horscs, but she did stop the
mill. W ht n they recovered her and the
)u-,-v she was seriously injured, but she
had saved her f.avorite's face trom some
flany pummeling. There a-e in juries
all around, but it is the supple Revier,
whose heart, is brokei. 1le isn't in the

BORDEN MURDER TRIAL.
WEAVING A WEB OF CIRCUMSTANTIAL
EVIDENCE.
StatePs Ot1cers Working Hard to Convict
LIzzie as the One Who Committed the
11rutaul Murder of Her Aged Parents
No Blood on Her Clothes.
FA ur RiVER, Mass. Aug. 29.-The
1 >rdetn murder trial to-day was rather
scnsational. Drug Clerk Be tie and two
others testified that Miss Lizz4 Borden
attempted to buy prussic acid of Benie
the day before the murders. Mrs.
Churchill, the first person on the scene
after the murder, testiflel that Miss
Borden had told her she was in the barn
at the time of the murder looking 1or
some sinkers, and Miss ltussel testified
Hi it L-zzie told her she went there to
get a piece ofiron or tin to lix a window.
The contradictory statements caused a
sesation. Witnesses said there was
blood on Lizzie's dresss after the mur
der.
Mrs. Adelaide B. Churchill said she
lived next to the Bordens on tie North.
The day of the tragedy she saw Uzzie
standing against the side door, apparent
ly distressed about something. She
opened the window and asked what was
the matter, and she said: Oh. Mrs.
Churchill, do come over, some body
has killed Ihther. Witness went over
and asked where her father was. She
replied: "In the sitting room."
When asked where she was when it
happened, she said she was in tMe barn
looklog for some sinkers. The witness
asked Uzzie where her mother was and
she said her mother had to go some
where. but she did not know but that
she had been killed too. She wished
somebody would go and try to find her
[or at e thought she had come in sn<.e.
She said her father must have an enemy
for every one in the house kad been sick.
After Ltie neighbors had commenced to
come in, Lizzie said again that she
wished some one would go and find Mrs.
Borden fIr s ic was sure she had heard
her co nie in, and here the Nitness des
cribed finding Mrs. Borden. The wit
ness said that when ihe go( i'side the
house, Lizzie was so mui agitated that.
she fauned her, iparing she would faint.
Alfter they saw the body they left Bdd
et n 'e rooi and have no knowledge
what she did there, ir anythng.
The witress could no' remember that
there was the least sign of blood on Liz.
zie's dress, hands or face at the time
she first saw her; her hair was done ud
and ap)earel not to be disarranged m
t he slightest and there was no indication
ut anything in her appearance that any
vhanges had been made since she arose.
Miss Alice M. Russell sai,d she had
known Lizzie about eleven years. Shec
c ti, to Lthe house on hearing of the a
fhir and found Jizzie leaning against the
door.
She remembered Lizzie telling her in
answer 10 a question that she went in
the barn to ge a piece of iron or tin to
fix a wiudoiv with. (Sensa.inal.) It
wa i wbien Lizzie was sitting on the stairs
that I.zzie aiid her father nust have an
eneii%. I L was when a polceman su
vested that sonie farm hand had (lone
t,e deed that Lizzle said it could not be
so Ior one man was sick and the other
had to stay on the fitrm; furthermore she
would not suspect either of them. She
remenibered Lizzie answered all ques
tions freely. it was quite evident Miss
lissell's evidence had made consider
able imiression oi tihe defense, and
when she had finished her diret examina
tion Lizzie's coutisel put, their heads to.
gether and1( allowed the witness to sit
down tor a moment.
(On cr>ss5-examination Miss Ruissell
said she t>athed Lizzie's lace after she
went in and saw no signs of blood on
any of her clothing. She could see no
signs of any undue exertion about ILz
zie, nor was she pantimg as though ex
hanusted. T1hie witness was positive thut
Lizzie dhid not go up stairs before the of
Ileers wenit because she remembered the
oflicers go)ing up to L!zzie's room and
inding it locked; of their pulling the
door open and of tier requesting to be al
howedl I > look in first, because she did
iiot know what condit,ion it was in; she
looked in and finding it all right it them
in.
Ehe lIenic a drug clerk, Frank Kilroy,
a miedhical student, and Frederick B.
1I[art, empl>)yedl in a dIrug store, testified
that the (lay b>efore tihe tragedy Miss
i)lordeni caime into the store and wanted
to b)uy ten cents wort,h of prussic acid
but was toldl it could not be sold without
a prescription. TIhiey testified that Miss
IBorden saLid she wanted it to put on a
seal skin sacque or coat she had with
her. Benie testitiedl that tier voice was
tremulous but Kihroy testified to the
contrary.
Thel State's oflicial says that the
strongest p)oint to-day was Lizzie's re
mark. sneaking of her mother to Mrs.
Churchill: "I do not know but she has
beeni killed, too.'
Lizzie made this remark while telling
that she thought she heard her mother
come mn. WVhat reason, ask the ofil.:tals,
(fidl Uzze have ior believing her mother
was killed? On the~ oth.r !:mLd, the
fact that no bloodl was on Lizzie was in
her favor,
