Thompson would not surrender, but -was taken after a hard fight with the officers, in -which he was shot in the head, but iot severely Injured. No member of the posse was hurt. Deputy Marshal Prescott had been in Council Grove ever since Saturday morning on the watch for escaped prisoners. There are a number of them in this vicinity and several dep redations on property have resulted from their presence. Yesterday Dep uty Prescott heard of the presence of a negro convict a few miles north of town and set out to make the capture, assisted by Sheriff Michael and some other officers. The officers had just merged from a wooded tract when they saw Thompson running across the open, he was ordered to halt but answered by wheeling around and doing some rapid firing with a 44-caI-Iber revolver. The officers then fired and Thompson dropped. He was stunned and was easily secured. Thompson was taken back to the pen-, itf ntiary today. Another of the escaped convicts, Lawrence Lewis, was mortally wound ed yesterday near Quenemo, Kan., while making a dash through a cordon of armed deputies. Now there are but 12 prisoners at large.

He was trakea to a wooded place near Quenemo by tbe city mar shal of that place and a dozen men bearing rifles. An order to surrender was met with defiance and Lewis, un armed, and although practically sur rounded, darted for the nearest open ing. He had gone scarcely 100 yards when a bullet from a Winchester in th hands of one of his pursuers pierc ed his lung from behind and brought him to the ground. Bleeding and fa tally wounded, Lewis was taken to the marshal's office and cared for, while Warden McClaughrey was notified. J Bulgaria Still Interferes. Sofia. Bulgaria, Nov. 12. From an other letter that has been received fiom Miss F.llen M. Stone, the ab ducted American missionary, it ap pears that she is enduring the trials of her hard experience with fortitude, torgetting herself in her anxiety for her companion. Mme. Tsilka. Miss Stone does not dare to complain of the treatment to which they are sub jected, but she finds the confinement Irksome and the weather extremely tiying. The tone of the latest letter received from her is hopeful. The brigands, by dating the letters at places in Macedonia and delaying their delivery, seek to create the ap pearance of being far distant. The Bulgarian government continues to In terfere in the negotiations with the object of forcing a transference of them across the frontier. I Devery and Jerome- New York, Nov. 12.

There was a good deal of bunting doDe yesterday, and although the wind was high there was a good deal of game brought to town. All agree that there was much hard work about it. Game was plenty, more so than for years, but does not seem to be in the fields so much as former years; it is in the woods and . corn fields. One man says that out of 35 rabbits seen by his party yesterday only one was in the stubble, and it was a good deal the same with the quail. Game seemed to be pleDty in every direction and reasonably easy of approach. William Snelle and a party were in Boston township and did not see any quail. They got plenty of rabbit. ' Ed Morgan, X B. Morgan and A. D Oler were up toward Greecfefork. Trey found game plenty and returned with 16 rabbit and 8 quaii. They did not get near all they saw. W. M. Huddleston was up about Fountain City and brought back three rabbit and four quail. He saw lots of quail. The most successful party have heard from included Lou Mutb, Alf Collet and Charley Burden of Muccie. They bafreed twenty rabbits and fifteen quaii. They are out again today. The rain of last night will be a help but the high wind will still be an objec tion. If this weather holds up the hunting will probably be good all through the season as pot hunters can not work to advantage. All agree to one thing, too, and that is that there is going' to be trouble getting to hunt if a mas is not a personal friend of the farmer whose farm he wishes to hunt over. The farmers do not seem to object to the hunting, but do not want to sign written permits. Thy were on nu merous farms, and in every case al most the farmer would say: "J don't object to the hunting, now you have asked me. Go ahead and hunt all you want to, but I won't sign any thing." Their blank pe mits were practically worthless to them for the reason that while consent was readi ly given the farmers would not even read the permits, let alone signing them. The farmer boys are hunting a good deal this year. Fire in Boston. Boston, Mass., Nov. 12. A fire burned out the interior of the big granite block at Broad and Franklin streets this morning and caused a loss of from a hundred to a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The prop erty is owned by Thomas N. Hart. Sent Back to Wayne. The case of Hannah Murray vs. Robert Murray which was sent to Winchester from this court on change of venue has been certified back to this court. It is a rather peculiar case. Robert Murray was a widower of advanced age with a family of nine children. He married. The wife, Hannah, lived with him for some 12 years and then left him, going to Cincinnati to live. He sued for di vorce and it was granted, and then he died. Now comes Hannah and sues for a share in the estate which he left consisting of an 80 acre piece of ground near Greensfork and per haps $2,500 in money. The other heirs contest her rights because of the divorce. She claims there was a flaw in the proceedings in that the suit was rot properly advertised, she being a non-resident at the time cf the suit. Conner, Bond and Abbott are the attorneys representing the three contestants. -' Still Another Bank Robbery-. Hopkinsviilf, Ky., Nov. 12.

It is to Have More Floor Space Than the One Now Standing Has. There has been considerable talk about the city with regard to the new Panhandle station and the im pression has been formed that the new one will be smaller than the old one, which is a mistake. It is to be shorter than the old one, but it is to be much wider, and will have more room by several hundred feet of floor space. The building will be different from the present one in the way of train sheds. The present building has depot and train sheds all in one. In the new one the depot will be by itself and the train sheds will be of iron, by themselves, connected by a promenade covered with glass. The old building has 4,400 feet of floor space, the new one will have 4.700 feet of floor space, a gain of 300 feet in size. The express room is to be larger, the baggage room a great deal larger, the ticket office much smaller; the telegraph of fice will be in a room to itself. The ladies' waiting room has between 200 and 300 feet of floor space and the gents room is of about the same size. The general waiting room will have 2,100 feet of 11 xr space, and the space now taken up by the lunch counter will not be thus encumbered, the lunch counter being in a room by itself. There will not be any dining room as there is now, that will be given to public use. We lose the dining room, which is never of use to local travel and of very little use to the general public, and gain in the way of general waiting room and gents' room. CENTERVILLE.
