Kentucky Desperado-rtain by Victim's
Brother Supposed Dead Man Awakes
to Life—Expensive Fire on Superior
Coal Docks—Two Burned to Death.
Tom Baker. mlk, s tabbed John J. Con*
nelton at Bryant several days ago, dur
ing a political row. was shot and killed
by George Connelton. Bawer was near
his home at. the time he was shot down,
his intention, it is believed, being to se
cure money to enable him to leave the
country.. Just as Baker was within a
few feet of his home be was ordered to
hold up his hands by two men, who stood
behind a wood pile. He struck a match
and reached for his pistol, but before he
could take aim, was fired upon and kill
ed instantly. George Connelton, who did
the shooting, was accompanied by a dep
uty sheriff, who was on band to arrest
Baker. Baker is said to have been a
noted Kentucky criminal, having killed
several men in that State. He was tried,
convicted and sentenced to be hanged,
but the Governor commuted his sentence
to life imprisonment and afterward par
doned him.
The Loss la SIO,OOO.
The loss at the Youghiogheny and Le

thought possible that lie has committed
suicide. Two months ago Neiman was
married to Miss Minnie Reel of Milwau

Neiman received letters from him stat
ing that lie had given up his business on
account of family troubles. To friends
he wrote that he would never be seen
again. He left no missive for his wife,
who left for her home in Milwaukee as
soon as it was learned that the husband
was missing.
The famous Deltona riot case has at

done he left for parts unknown and has
not put in his appearance since that time.
llis sister took possession of the farm
and this was followed by a suit for a
divorce by Mrs. O’Malley and for posses
sion of the property. In the Circuit
. Court she won the ease, although it was
hotly contested by the relatives of the
departed O'Malley. The matter was tak
en to the Supreme Court of the State and
there the order was set aside on the
ground that the publication or the no
tices was defective. Mrs. Frickc contin
ued to hold the fort on the big farm and
the opponents became very restless at the
snail-like procedure of the courts and offi
cers sworn lo execute the laws. Some of
the friends of the O’Malley faction incit

•great excitement there one night, but
luckily no one was seriously injured.
Some of the property was destroyed and
several people were arrested for being im

settled and Mrs. Fricke continues to rule
the farm.

Embroidery Continues as Stylish as
Evei for Dress Trimming, and a
Great Deal of It Ia Being Uaed on
New Costumes.
New York correspondence:
> HERE is every rea
son to fear that the
undersleeve is very
soon to be common.
It is such an easy
matter to trim off
the worn edge of a
last year’s sleeve and
substitute an under
sleeve that the fash
ion doesn’t entirely
satisfy exclusive
women. Some ef
fects in lace, how
ever, the lace bulg
ing handspme
ly where it escapes
from the oversleeve,
and being shaped in
to a close long cuff
at the hand, are
beautiful and wor
thy of continuance.
Instead of falling
in favor, the bolero displays as many
moods as ever a capricious favorite dar
ed, and each mood is voted charming. A
new notion is a bolero in contrast to the
skirt, something in a warmer tone than
that shown in the rest of the dress. Thg
shape is jaunty, the sleeves new, the
jacket is dashingly embroidered and bril
liantly lined. Such a bolero is a fine ad
dition to a house dress, and almost pre
sents the possibilities of a separate
waist. Some of these jackets are scar
let, some green, some bright blue. With
a brown skirt, a bolero of uncompromis
ing orange is worn over a bodice of
heavy ivory lace that matches the trim
ming on the skirt. Undersleeves are of
the lace.
Little news is to be had of skirts. There
are new fashions a-plenty, but nearly all
of them have been on view since the eariy
showings of fall styles, or at least, are
direct and simple adaptations of the
skirts then displayed. The newest of
these is one that seems sure of much ap
proval. It is the princess skirt shown in
to-day’s initial picture. This will be wel
comed as a way of doing without a sep
arate belt. A belt to match the skirt is
likely to make the figure dumpy, while
one contrasting with both skirt and waist
is likely to seem patchy. The princess
skirt meets all difficulty. It is fitted per
fectly to the figure well above the waist
line, being really a skirt without a bend.
Its upper edge not only conies above the
waist line, but is shaped to follow the
curve of the figure.
Embroidery is as stylish as ever and
is used more than are all the mentioned
novelties put together. A gown may
have a little or a lot of it—the amount
is a matter of the wearer’s liking. For
illustration of this take the three model
dresses put in the second of the accom
panying pictures. First is a brown
broadcloth whose only trimming, aside
from skirt bands and jacket tabs of dark
red cloth, was inconspicuous rows of gilt
embroidery. Next this is a gown whose
bolero was gray ladies’ cloth covered with
silver embr> idery, the skirt of the same
goods having bands of the embroidery
and a rose niching of gray silk. Even
freer was the embroidery of the last of
these three, a while broadcloth covered
all over with fine gilt tracery. Nile green
satin gave skirt panels and yoke ruffle,
yoke and collar being cream lace banded
with narrow black velvet. Whether the
embroidery be a little or a lot. it is styl
ish trimming.
Downright novelties in lace trimmings
are few. though these garnitures have
many new phases. Dyed lace is being
pushed to the front. aDd it is now possi
ble to match nil the lea'hn* cloth colon
in lace. Nets reappear in dazzling va
riety. many of them at prices that settle
the question of their exclusiveness. Small
figures and leaf designs over a surface
brilliantly powdered with beads or span
gles are new and vfp .a>Mia The
waviness of lac** bands is the newest fea
ture of the application of lace trimmings.
Two examples of development appear in
this third illustration. In one wide bands
of jetted black and gilt lace trimmed bis
cuit broadekui. In the other white lace
Insertion was used on figured green and
white taffeta surah. The third of these
dresses was in Persian cloth, a newly
Stylish material. The richness of i col
oring and size of its figures make much
trimming inadmissible. On this gown
were yoke, high collar, ruffle and belt of
pale Mm taffeta banded with gilt warn-
tache. Thtit was nraugh of embellish
ment to use a great deal and make the
result tasteful.
Silk petticoats are going out. That
means a rare offering of beautiful ones at
very low prices. Of course some new
>nes are coming in, and these are more
elegant and Ornate than ever. They are
shaped exquisitely to the hips, are of bro
cade silks, pompadour and panne, beruf
fled and beribboned, but the really choice
skirt is lawn, all needlework and lace or
embroidery. Some lovely clinging skirts
are of surah satin, or less expensive ones
are wash silk, and these are richly
weighted with lace and needlework.
White is the choice color, otherwise
black, still otherwise, and this rigorously,
the color that matches the outside skirt.
That’s outright revolution.

How We Shock the Chinese.
No doubt well-meaning but thought
less “foreigners,’’ lgnorai.t of Oriental
prejudice, have done much to shock
Chinese ideas of propriety, albeit unwit
tingly. For instance, it is considered
not only improper but scandalous in
Chiua for a woman to appear in a tight
fitting bodice. She also rides tough
shod over Chinese notions of 5 eemll-*
ness aud propriety when she shakes
hands with a man, receives men guests
in her house, when she rides in an open
chair, or attempts to go abroad unat
tended by a middle-aged Chinese wom
Our modern dress fr- women has pro
voked so much hostile criticism that
the China Inland Mission prescribes
the adoption of Chinese dress for its
missionaries as a means of avoiding
giving offense to prejudice. No doubt
much of the hostility to foreigners in
China lias been caused by our ignoring
Chinese demands for propriety and et
The Dogs of Constantinople.
The dogs of Constantinople are the
scavengers of the city. F or this reason,
as well as from innate Lumanity, the
Turks are tolerant of them, although
visitors to the city find them unamiable.
Asa proof of their intelligence and ree
ogntiou of friends, Major Johnson re
lates an experience of his own.
"One evening I was walking with an
English officer, when a dog came up
aud licked his baud. lie told me to uo
tice that she would follow us to the
boundary of her district, as he had once
petted her and she bad never forgotten
it. Exactly as he bad said, she follow
ed us a little way, and stopped short in
the middle of the street. She wagged
her tail aud looked wistfully after us,
but did not stir when we called her. A
few nights afterward, returning alone
to my hotel, I passed the same spot,
when I suddenly felt a cold nose put
into my hand and a tongue lickiug my
palm. I looked down aud saw the same
dog. She had recognized me as having
l)een with her friend, the officer, and as
before she folowed me to the boundary
of the district.”
Teaching an Old Idea to Shoot.
Seldom has there been a man more
fertile in suggestion than Mr. Moody,
but it was always his desire to find out
the ideas of other men. The Advance
recalls how upon one occasion, at a
meeting of a board of Sunday school
managers, one of the members made a
very novel proposal.
Turning quickly to a very successful
superintendent who happened to be
present. Mr. Moody asked:
“What do you thiDk about that?"
"1 think It a mint excellent Idea. Mr.
Moody, and I may s y that we have
lieeu aiming to do tbi.t very thing for
two years." replied (be superintendent.
“K that so?” said Mr. Sfoody. Then

Population of /uinland.

The United States are known in CmSOSk
as Nei-Kwo, or “the beautiful country,”
though the Chinese masses to-day al
ways call aa Americana Kwa Kee
Kwoh Yui, which may be translated as
a “countryman of the* flower flag.” The
reason of this is that when first the
Stars and Stripes were seen in Canton
harbor the natives flocked to the shore,
hailing it as the Kwa Kee Cheun, or
the "flower flagship.”
The Chinese Situation.
The cause for the present Chinese en
tanglements is the abuse of the Chinese
immigrants by the foreign powers. An
other great revolution comes from the
abuse of the stomach. Overtaxed diges
tion produces constipation, indigestion,
dyspepsia and •flatulency. Hostetter’s
Stomach Bitters is the best medicine to
take. It prevents nervousness or r'eep
lessness. Don’t fail to try it-
Heaviest of Flying Birds.
The heaviest bird that flies is the
great bustard. In size U exceeds the

tards were formerly as plentiful in
Western Europe as partridges. Now
they are rarely found. They may occa
sionally be seen on the Dnieper and on
the coast of the Caspian Sea.

Deafness Cannot its Cured
hy local applications, as .thev cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness ts caused by an In
flamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When tills tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness Is
the result, and unless the inflammation can be
Jaken out and this tube restored to Its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition of

proaches this perfectly natural change without experiencing a train of very
annoying, and sometimes painful symptoms.
Those dreadful hot flashes, sending the blood surging to the heart until it
seems ready to burst, and the faint feeling that follows, sometimes with chills,
as if the heart were going to stop for good, are only a few of the symptoms oi
a dangerous nervous trouble. The nerves are crying out for assistance. Th*
cry should be heeded in time. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound wag

The three following letters are guaranteed to be genuine and true, and
still further prove what a great medicine Lydia E. Pinkliam’s Vegetable
Compound is for women.

When one stops to think about the good Mrs. Johnson derived from Mr%
Pinkham’s and medicine, it seems almost beyond belief ; yet it is all
true as stated in her three letters published above at her own request.
Asa matter of positive fact Mrs. Pinkham has on tile thousands of
letters from women who have been safely carried through that danger period
