L. Hechler, wounded by shoti fir.*d at
him in tbe presence of his wife and
io his own home, yesterday mada bis
first stttament since tbe tragedy ot
Tuesday mnr-ing, Hechler says tbat
tbe presence of Elierson, who is acensed
of the assault at his home on the night
in question, was doe to tbe entreaties of
his wife, who insisted that her husband
ssk him to sit up with him and watch
for burglsn, who had recently dis?
turbed the neighborhood.
"I yielded to her eiitruiies," aaid
llrchler. "We had boen drinking.
Early in the nigbt my wife and Roy in?
sisted that I crawl under the bouse,
maintaining tbat they heard a noise.
But I was too wise. 1 knew and felt
thst if I went under the house that they
would shout me aod then claim that a
burglar had done it. They evan made
fun of me, saying I was afraid, thinking
it would make me yield."

THRASHES BRIDE EVERY DAY.
John S. Ball believes that if yon spare
tbe fist you spoil your wife, and likewise
her whole family. Since he eloped with
young Lsura Recd, a few weeks ago, he
has according ti her statement to Justice
Loden in Bsltimore yc-ttihy morning,
besten ber regularly once a dsy and
sometimes twice. Wo n feeling in
specially good condition, she said, he
made it three thrashings per diem.
But Thursday n-ght Ball indulged his
propensity for beating people beyond the
limit of human endurance. Besides bis
wife, he best her mother, har father, and
Yesterday aft?r Justice Loden bad
beard several witnesses tell about Ball's
achievement, he fined the mighty scrsp
per $10 and cost*, and sent him to jail
for aix months.
Ball, who is about 24 yean old,
eloped with yoang Laura Reed last
month, and on the runaway couple's
return from their brief honeymoon, Mr.
and Mrs. Andrew J. Reed, the bride's
parent*, forgave them, and aa Ball had
no money and hsd neglected to provide
himself with a job before taking a wife,
tbe parents of the bride allowed Mr.
aod Mrs. Ball to come to their home to
live. Thursday night he punched hil
bride in tbe jaw. Next Ball is accused
of hsnding his mother in-law an upper?
cut on the chin.
His father-in-law rushed into the
room, and as he esme iu Ball is Mid tc
have sidestepped light end punehed him
in the dos-*. At tbis juncture in ran
Harry F. Reed, the brother-in-law ol
the scrappy Mr. Ball,
Reed and his brother-in-law had i
hard battle, but the bridegroom had josi
downed his last antagonist when Patrol
man Birmingham dashed np tha frot
steps in re-ponse to the cries of "amt
der!" varied wilh "Help, !" and arrest
ed the pugilistic youog man.

"1 have used Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and DiarrhoeaRemedy since I

where a cure waa not speedily effect*
by-its use. I have been a commercli
