At 1 :S0 o'clock thi morning a mob of four hun urea armed men surrounded the county jail and began parley Lng with the sheriff for the surrender of George E. Graham. the wife murderer. The sheriff would not comply with the demands, but they soon, battered in the doors and secured th prisoner . At 2. o'clock the mob started out of town with Graham in their midst. It was thought that the mob would take Graham to the Malloy farm, bang him, then throw hi body into the well where hi wile's body wa found But the leaders of the party artfully gaye the followers the slip by starring in the direction of the Malloy place but changed their course as soon as the others turned back. While y et within the city limits they hanged him to a tree within just one hour after tbe attack made on the jail. Sheriff Donell said : The first thing I knew was when masked men broke into my room and said: "We are friends.don't be Beared." They overpowered me and secured the keys, I knew nothing ol how Grabam took it. I was kept close in the room. When ' they unlocked Graham's cell he said: "You can hang me,but,by God.you can't scare me." 1 hey tied his hands behind him and marched htm through tbe hall with a rope around bis neck. He was as white aa a sheet, but otherwise he never flinched. Inemob ia variously esti mated at 150 to 400. Graiictn made no entreaties for them to b;are him. but went to his doom coollr and died spparently without a struggle. The mob then dispersed in all directions. A notice was pinned t i his body which closed with the following waroinz to Sheriff Donell: "Keep your mouth shut. If you recognize any of us vou will die the death of a dog." ANOTHEB REPORT. After procuring the kevs from the sher iff the men went to tbe cell and opened the door. Graham was in his bunk. He waa commanded to get up. Ho was at first Infuriated and replied with oaths, but was silenced by the muzzle of a revolver thrust in his face. He dressed himself and when tbe rope was placed around his neck, broke down and went bitterlv. The leader ot the party informed him of their mission and demanded a true statement of tbe killing of Sarah Grabam. He recovered his composure and with something of his old audacity replied that when he got out he would give them "straight talk." tie was led out ot jtul at tbe end of the rope and placed in a wagon and the grim procession moved in a northerly direction. About two miles north of tbe city the cavalcade halted by a small scrub osk tree. Pickets were thrown out. who kept all curious followers at a distance. Tbe preparations for hanging were hurriedly made. Graham was asked If be had any thins further to say with regard to the killing . of his wrte. Exactly what his reply was is not known outside ot the charmed circle who aurroundid him. but it is claimed that he reasserted his statement that neither Mrs. Malloy or Cora Lee were implicated in the murder. A cloth was tied over his face and his hands were bound behind him . A rope was thrown over a limb of the stunted tree and a dozen strong arms in a twinkling dangled the body of the wife- murderer in mid air He was literally Strangled to death. At 5 a. m. the body of Graham was banging where it was left by the lynchers. This is the first instance of lynch law that has occurred in Green county for twenty years. It was reported that one wing of the mob went to Bolivar, where Cora Lee is still in jail, with tbe intention of lynching her also, but this is not verified. . WOCIJ NOT AIO HKK LOVKK. 13t.Louis.

One dispatch states that France aid all in her power to se cure a fsvorabie settlement tor Greece and by individual meditation, but failed. It is also raid that France did not sign the ultimatum in which the other power joined, ordering Greece to disarm ; that she has not yet signed it, and that if she eventually does sign it that the fact will be communicated to Greece ia a separate note. Greece, it is averred, is arranging to seek from the powers certain conces sions in return for disarming, Other dispatches say Greece disarmed before the receipt of the ultimatum which or dered the disarming to take place within eight days, and that when the premier, D. Ely no is, received tbe ultimatim he declared that it was then objectless, as order for disarming had already been given. The dispatch says it was under stood that France intends to propose a conference for the purpose of msking concessions to Greece. A telegram from Athens states that the combined fleet of the powers will probably return to Pieieaus to embark the foreign min isters. Italy desired the ultimation to order Greece to disarm within forty eight hours, but this was rejected by the other powers as too pre-emptory. THREATENED TO RESIGN. .

THE YOUNG ARTIST. ,The tiny apartment was evidently tua sister a only room; for in the centre, up on a floor so spotlessly white to make a carpet seem like a needless luxury on this warm sunny afternoon, stood a round table with a few dishes upon it, awaiting the lunch which Maudie had gone out to buy. Maudie' 8 sister's ia an invalid, and ia now sleeping quietly on the couch. whose snowy pillows are not whiter than her face. Like soma lovely marble image she looks: and were it not for tho fluttering breatu, she could easily be mistaken for one. But here comes Maudie. with a light springy step, scarcely heavy enough to crush a flower, much less awakeu the sleeper. She bent above Alta a moment, liston- intr tr hor nnipt lrflthinr? thpTl firm lighted a spirit-lamp over which hung a polished copper kettle. It was soon bubbling away merrily, as though pleased with the good it was going to do. It roused tbe sick girl. She opened her eyes and smiled, as Maudie said brightly: Now for a cup of tea, Alta. See what I have brought you the cunning est little glass of currant-jelly! They call it a 'picnic' jar; and it gives a relish to these crisp milk-crackers, and this nice butter. Just look how yellow it is -like pure gold." - As Maudie displayed her treasures, Alta put out her hand languidly for the plate which her sister offered her. By this time tea was made and till ing the room with its pleasant aroma. Maudie took their one precious cup, which had belonged to her grandmother, put in just the right proportion of sugar and cream, then poured the hot Oolong over it. and coaxed Alta to drink it She tasted a few niouthfuls before she noticed Maudie was not eatinr. Then she said: "What has become of your appetite. Maudie? Has your walk tired you so much that you cannot eat?" .No," was the careless answer; "I have had my lunch. V If she had told the whole truth instead of a part of it, Alto's relish for her frugal meal would have quickly vanish ed. Maudie had only eaten a few soda crackers since early morning; and in spite of her cheery ways, if the projoet which filled ber mind should prove a failure, she knew not from whence would come the next month's rent for their modest room, or the few things needed for their simple wants. But she was brave and honefuL and that is half the baiOe. One day while passing the door of a fashionable stationer, she had stopped a moment before the window, attracted by the boxes of tastefully arranged 'Papeterie.' Some of the packages of envelope were fastened together by bands, bear ing designs in various patterns me intricate Persian, or graceful groupings of nature's pets, the frail wild-flowers. or, per haps, the gayer Deaunes oi me garden. As Olauuie looKeu, a couversanuu, which she had once heard between her father and another gentleman, came to her like a flash 01 inspiration. Artists were employed to originate these designs, and were sometimes liberally paid, taste not being a common commodity especially joined to the faculty of perpetuating it in colors. She was a littlo child when she heard this, and thought at the time what a pleasant way it would bo to earn monry; for even at tnat age sne was iimie a proficient in drawing, and loved dearly to steal away by herself, with pencil and nuiwr. and njlil' BOllluUlinsr ill "still life" which had taken her fancy. Her talent had Been fostered by uer father, who had given her lessons from the best drawing-masters, tuougu mue thinking that his two girls would ever be left in such a strait as this. After the.idea had once entered her mind. Maudie did not lose any time in putting it into execution. Mie nastenea home to hunt up her lx of water- colors, and some remnants of Bristol board which had remained useless and nnthought-of at the bottom of a packing trunk ever since they had removed to their present abode. Alta s eyes followed ner movements with languid interest as she rapidly sketched some graceful wreaths and vines from the originals iu memory s cabinet One of them a delicate cluster 01 trailing arbutus well she remembered the gay party who had set out lo nnu the shy spring beauties in their haunts under the snow. Smiles and tears con tended for the mastery as she worseo; but smiles predominated, for ber dis position was essentially sunny. Alta thought it merely a pleasant diversion for her young sister, for Maudie had kept the knowledge ol their urgent necessity studiously concealed from her. She felt such a sympathy for the stricken girl that she was absolutely motherly in her care 01 ner. After two or three days of steady in- rinsri-E-- Mandin had completed ' a num ber of specimen pictures, and, going to the dealer whose window had first suggested her plan, she asked for aa Ulltfrtww wim , He was an old gentleman, wun a vinHiv far who so won her confidence that aha made known her errand with- mt a tremrtr. He listened kindly and courteously nntil she had explained her motive in aitmr nnon him. Then he shook his hul Whv. child" said he, -"the Dest artist m the city do not consider it be noath thir dirnitv to design for our rrrW An amateur would; stand but littlA rfianee."

"Yes; but before I do so, you must promise not to feel bad if I cannot pass a favorable opinion. A stranger rarely finds the merits in our production that mn An rail-selves." Hi intentions were kinder than his words, for he was really attracted by the fresh young face with its earnest eye looking up at him so frankly; and be did not wisa to raise ner aui;iiuu" then disappoint her. ' So he looked at her drawings, care lessly at first, then with unconcealed After b time he turned to Maudie." iio vou tell me these design are your own?" : - Maudie blushed, but said resolutely. "Indeed, sir, they are mine, and too hnt vrairaplf and mv sick sister ha bad a glimpse of them. "Bless me, child, how old are your SivtMn lust March." ThA old trentleman scrutinized the ketches again, thi ti ne closely carefully. Then he said: and ' i see vou knew what you were capa- M of better than I did. Theee," layin his hand upon " her portfolio. - "ara wonderfully well done, wonoenuuy well don!" . Aa be brought out these last words lowiy ' and emphatically; Maudie' spirits rose as rapidly as the merenry does under the influence of unclouded sunshine; and well they might for the sun of independence and prosperity had arisen for her. Mr. Beauclerck offered to write her a letter of introduction to the firm who supplied the papeterie, saying that he thought it very probable that they would at once secure her services. She waited long enough to receive tbe precious letter, and then hurried home to tell Alta that she had an errand which might detain her a few hours, and not to worry if she stayed even longer. She met with success. Her drawings proved the "open sesame" to a compe tence earned easily and pleasantly. She could now procure the needed delicacies for Alta, which had been out of her reach before, hoping they might restore the bloom to her pale cheek. But the. poor girl was suffering from a wound which struck deeper than a more physical malady, so the loving sister watched in vain for the roses of health. Now that Maudie was secure of an independence, sho took Alta into her confidence, and it proved a source of pleasure to the sick girl to hear tho young artist's off-hand description of the various people sue met with in her business peregrinations. One day, Maudie took her portfolio to town with her, as she had a prospect of setting some of her larger -paintings to be copied as chromos. Among them she had inadvertently left a picture of her sister, Alta. The gentleman who usually inspected her drawings was absent, and the senior partner sent word that ho was very much engaged, but to send in the port folio and he would see if the paintings were satisfactory, so she need not lose her time by a useless journey. Maudie seated herself to await his decision. She heard the murmur of voices in the inner otlico for a time, then an exclamation of surprise, followed by eager questioning. Then rapid foot steps, and a gentleman entered. "Miss Maudie, am I so fortunate?" As be approached his face absolutely shone with pleasure; but its expression changed as Maudie rose, white to the lips, and motioned away his outstretch ed hand. ' Maudie listen to me. Nay, I will be heard. There Li surely Some terrible mistake, cruel alike to mo and Alta. A3 God is my witness, my life, since I lost you, has been a blank. I bavo nbt left a place unvisited where I stood a chance of hearing from yon. Do you not believe me?" Maudie stood for a momeut un decided. He saw her change of expression, and grasped her hand. "I knew my little friend had not turned traitor to mo in her kind true heart. Come, take me to Alta." Did vou not receive Alta's letter. telling of papa's death, and our changed circumstances?" "The last letter I had from Alta was dated just before you started for the seaside on account of your father's health. But we are wasting time; take me to Alta." "Alta is not the blooming queenly girl of your acquaintance. Sho has suffered a living death in thinking you false. She is faded, and an invalid." No matter she is Alta. That is enough for me. My rose of girls! She would be the same in my eyes even if disfigured beyond recognition by others." Maudie was convinced. "But my pictures?" j The boy came in with a note from Mr. Ogdeu, saying that ho would take two of the oval landscapes. So Maudie took ner porttolio, and started with the impatient lover for tbe pleasant suite of rooms which had replaced their one attic room in which wo found them. "Had it not been for your business Miss Maudie I should never have discovered your retreat Think of it! Ii we had been seperated by a single partition, and still passed on un knowing and unknown! It was your picture of Alta which told me who it was wauuiv 111 111 y inuuu o uwn-. "Alta's picture!" "Yes. So that was an accident, too! Well, Providence befriended me. The oversight was for my special benefit' Need we say that Alta recovered as if by magic when hope and love were re newed in her heart by tho return of her lover faithful and true? After his explanation, tho sisters wondered that tbey had not thought it to have been the true state of the case; but they had had some bitter experience of slights and coldness from apparently devoted friends after their cliange of circumstances, and when time bad passed on, and Ernest Monteith failed them, too judging by his silence Alta had turned to tho wall and hoped for death. When Ernest came borne from bis studies on the Continent be had gone to their old home and found them gone. Jrnest Alonteith and Alta t- Ulair are now married lovers. Maudie makes ber home with them; but, true to ber independent spirit she continues ber congenial labors. One of tho pleas- antest rooms in Mrs. Monteitli s bouse is appropriated to her use as a studio. Her pictures are tbe fashion, and she has orders enough ahead to till her time for many months. How true it is that our Heavenly Father helps those who help themselves! Tbe Beautiful Mis Chamberlain. Miss Pli.nmherlain is now . 23 vears old, and is the daughter of Mr. William Chamberlain, of Cleveland, O., and the granddaughter of Mr. Zelab Chamber lain, who was one of tho wealthiest re sidents of that city. Her mother was a Miss Wilson, also of Cleveland. Mrs. Chamberlain owns many lots in tho city of Cleveland which were for many years poor property, but whieh four years ago rose suddenly in value and mauu. ner a rich woman. But Miss Chamberlain's position as an : heiress is due to her grandfather, "old Zclah Chamberlain. as he is known, ror many years no held in his possession Minnesota state bonds to a large amount on whose in terest the state had defaulted. One day about ten years arro tbe Minnesota legis lature resolved to pay tbis back interest to B certain amount. 1 his was tele graphed to Mr. Chamberlain by a friend, and tbe latter immediately hired a special engine and steamed to feu Paul, . arriving there before any other bondholders, and receiving tho full amount due him. It was after this little episode and in the summer of 1881 that the Chamber lain decided to spend a summer in Newport, whither tbey repaired with their daughter, and there she made her debut. She attracted considerable at tention from her slight but perfectly- formed figure, her delicate, pearly com plexion, her rich brown hair and eyes. small and perfect mouth, and ber nat uralness of manner and conversation. Going from Newport to London, she made s success at once upon ner en. trance there the following season, and it wa not long before it wa reported that tbe prince of Wales was devoted to ber. Many exaggerated stories ot her friendship with the Drince have since been publicly told, but no charge of any departure from perfect propriety of con duct has ever been made against her. despite tbe gauntlet of envious eyes and tongues she has constantly been obliged to run. The story told of her that she first called the prince "Jumbo." while amusing is hardly true, as he had long been known as "jumrnv ' a noon certain set of his associates, a nickname which the duke of Portland also holds.
