A Prominent Physician end an Hoiiott Man It Oono Dr. J. 0. Mulcolm Is dead. Al though 1 lul readied tho allotted tlireo scorn yearn nnd ten, Ids dentil was inueli of u surprise to Ids many friends and acquaintances In this city nnd elsewhere, who know him as irro mnrknbly Htrulnlit and ugHo old man. Ho was taken with a sudden pain Thursday In the region of tho heart and a physician was summoned. On Saturday however he was much bel ter anil was at his olllee. Hut on Sunday it took lilin attain violently uud short ly afternoon he passed to his reward. Dr. Malcolm was horn In Scotlland and removed to America at a very early iiKOwlth his parents who located in Canada and here he grew to man hood. In October IW.'i Jr. Malcolm graduated from a colli-iru In Toronto and received the Hist honors of his class. In 18(14 ho graduated from a medical school In Now York and af terward took a special course In hom eopathy at Ann Arbor, Michigan. JIo was a long while In tho practice and was very successful. However ho seemed to enjoy tho study of the Bclcnco more than his prnctlo, and most of his time was" spent among his books. In his library ho delved and produced many technical manu scripts somo of which havo been printed and havo become recognized authorities in his branch of the pro fession. Hut Dr. Malcolm was not only a well read man In his profession, but a man of uncommon and varied Infor million. Ho studied tho problem of life deeply. Ho understood social and moral questions thoroughly. Ho was radically democratic In his opinions and had reasons for them all His nature was generous and tender hut abovo everything else was his love f Justice, llelng progressive nnd kind by nature ho abhorred war and everything that Is brutal. If thoro are any honest men In this world ho was ono of them. Ho might havo been much more successful In his professon if he had catered more to public opinion, and conventionali ties. Hut this lie would not do for gold nor success. Dr. Malcolm was one of those men who aro seldom appreciated at first "acquaintance. Hut ho gew dearer with Intimacy and now that ho Is gono ho will bo better valued than ever before. Ho lived a useful life m hard labor. Peace be to his soul ' Ho leaves ono daughter, Mrs. Elmer Barton of this city, and one son who Is a brokor In New York. Tho funeral services were held from tho residence of his daughter conducted by Jiev. Sherrln, Tues day afternoon. A TALE OF REMORSE.

A BRUTAL HUSBAND, County Oommliilonari Havt a Peoullar and lamentable Caie at the Hospital. A Desertod Waif Reolnlmed by Romorsotul Parents. Ono of tho boys who was paroled from the reformatory at the last meet lug of tho board and received the news of their liberty as a sort of Christmas present has a sad and pe culiar history. When ho was not more than seven years of age his par ents had one of those unfortunate family differences that ended in sep aration. The boy some how drifted Into an orphan asylum. Next ho was sent to Kansas to find a home on one of those shlpm'enls that arc so fre quently made by those Inst Itnt Ions in tho East Ho was given a home for some tlmo In tho family of a farmer In the north part of Harvey county. Hut he was mischievous and boyish, and being thus knocked about-was without the inlluenco of much moral training. Ho stole a gun nnd was sent to tho reformatory, At tho timo he arrived at this hi nt itut Ion ho was only sixteen yeas of age. Ho was rather n likable boy and made, a good record. Hut about tills time ins parents wno nan tnougnt better of their conduct and reunited, commenced to think of. the poor de sorted boy. The mother came to the place where he had been in Har vey county, and was told; lie was gone. Then "she was pointed loathe entry on tho court docket where he had been sentenced to tho reforma tory, and broken hearted she came hero with a picture of the little boy that long ago had been left alone In tho wide world. They seemed to recognize each .other, and she made Tho county coiinnlsslnors havo a very peculiar caso now before them for action, and the proper course Is somewhat perplexing. A woman by the name of Kuhhuan, a Sweeillsh woman, is now lu Stewart's hospital hero at county expense, while sho is properly a resident of Pawnee county. Yet tho t'ase Is such that the com missioners could not take any other course than that they did without being subject to tho charge of Inhumanity. The woman has lately been staying in a Sweedisli settlement In this county and now has cousumptlon. During the recent severely cold weather sho Is said to have suffered from cold and privations, When tho caso was brought before tho commis sioners hor pathetic story was told in broken English about as follows: about twelve years ago sho was mar ried to ono of her countrymen by tho name of Dahlberg and settled In l'awnee county about eight miles from l'awnee Hock. A son was born to them who Is now about eleven years of ago. Ono day about five years ago sho found her husband in tho house In an unconscious condition and he died In a very, short tlmo of heart disease. There Was a seven hundred dollar mortgage on the farm but she sold nearly all her personal effects and paid It olf. Then comes the next chapter. Across tho road lived an old man by the name of Kuhhuan, on a farm he owned, and in about a year they were, married. They worked and she worked in the Holds, but they did not get along well together. She accuses him of being cruel to her boy and her self as well. Sho finally moved back on her farm but even then the old man would glvo her no peace. Her first husband had left no will when ho died and the farm by law fell to her and her son, Hut by his nun rlago to her Kuhhuan had acquired a one-fourth interest in her share. Sho could havo gone into divorce court and had her Interests protected, and If tho old man still owns his farm have secured a portion of it, but she as ignorant and probably had no one to properly advise her. So Instead of taking this course sheand her boy fled from their home and came to lteno county destitute. The authorities at La rued have been written to but so far have accom plished nothing. Tho old man seems to he one of that kind that won't sign his name to strango papers, and so far ho has refused to glvo up his portion. The commissioners are talking of sending someone to l'awnee county to see If something can not be done to got this property in shape to he used for her care and tho support of the child. She Is not expected to live long and the settlement should make provision for tho boy's welfare. JUD SHIVE KILLED. Run over In Rook Island Yards and Cut Off. His Head Another fatality was addedd to the already long list of t hoso who have been killed in the railroad yards In this city last Thursday. The victim this time was a young man who was quite wel known about, town named Jnd Slilve. For several years Shlve lias been breaking on the Hutchinson Southern and oilier roads. Tho day of his death ho was on duty and the accident occurred on the team cross ing between the Rock Island passen ger and freight depots. The evidence produced at the coroner's inquest showed that but one man actually saw him killed. That was u young man who works for tho Kansas Lum ber Co. I lu was actually looking at him when ho was struck by the cars. He was at work around the cars that might bo expected his head was prac tleeally severed from his body. It was reported that ho had been drinking considerable for a few days and that tho morning heforo being killed he was considerable under the Inlluenco of liquor, However there was nothing adduced lu the evidence that Indicated anything of this sort. In fact tho coroner's Jury In their verdict found that ho had como to his death by accldeiil and that he was entirely sober, th!TWTroue, A Pratt County Man and an Emporia Woman Had lo Square Themselves In Polloo Court. when the brutes came In and attacked Mm. llo does not get around very well hut succeeded in doing so well enough to get hold of an axe and with lu help was able to make It so inter esting for them that they concluded discretion wm tho better part of valor. lie cut. one on Hie foot and the other on the head, and they quit long enough for lilin lo get Into the hoii.M', He said that, the owners of the dogs watched t he procedure In a disinterested sort of way and made on attempt to get them away.

They were called to order at 1 :.'!() this aftreuoon by Mr Peach, county clerk of Lyon county Mayor Martin delivered the address of welcome, and Mr. Peach responded. It Is needless to say that It was a peach of an address.

About throe or lour years ago tho clerks met here with about the same attendance, about thirty. They are being hospitably enter tained as Is usual with Hutchin son's visitors. Not a Success The Santa t'e company recently put on a lot of niagnllleontly equipped chair cars just from the factory. They are beauties. They are lighted by an acetylene gas plant, located in the back part of tho car. When cv, cry thing is working right these lights make brilliant , mellow light that Is more beautiful than anything else ex cept calcium, which Is really tho same thing. Hut they are not a success as used for lighting trains. It is noth ing uncommon to find one of these pallidal cars running on tallow can- dlcsfor illumination. Perhaps this Is putting It a little loo strong in tho matter of frequency, but at any rale It happens often enough to make It very unsatisfactory for the Illumina tion of trains. The train men seem to consider the electric lighting ap paratus as a success. Some of the new cars have been wired for el eel Ic ily, but are for the present running Willi some other light. The first ma chines of this sort that were put in were not altogether satlshiclory, but t'jc; opinion prevails among the.
