SEARCHTNQ FOR FRANK ALMV. eh,«.«. Murder at Hanover, N. It. w.™ .foü*rfni ÄÄ Frank Almy, the murderer of pretty Christie Warden. Investigation show» that the crime was carefully planned. The ambush and the avenue of escape were ate lected long before the fatal shots were fired. The little party of women ware wending their w ay homeward. They had just left the town, when a man glided stealthily into the roadway and blocked tbeir passage. His salutation was this: "Mrs. Warden, you and Fanny may move on with safety. I shall not harm you unless you interfere, and if you do I will shoot you like dogs. Christie, I have come 1,000 miles to meet you and now our time is short." Then he drew a revolver from his breast, which he «ockod. Mrs. Warden was dragged away hy Miss Ooodell, w ho had accompanied them, leav ing Christie and Fanny with Almy. Chris tie up to this time had been so overpow ered by fear Shat she was hardly able to move. She clung tenaciously to her sister, a bright young gir! of seventeen. Almy seized Christie by the left shoulder, placed the muzzle of his weapon against the breast of her sister and said: "I have bated you. Fan, and unless you let go of Christie 1 will blow you into eter nity." "Shoot, then; I will not let her go," she replied. He did not carry out his threat, but shook Fanny off and dragged Christie into the brush. Fanny followed close behind, despite Almy's threats to shoot. Mean time Christie had been struggling to es cape, and Almy had bis bands full in hold ing her. Nearly all of her clothing was turn off in the struggle. Fanny's presence evidently disconcerted the murderer, for | he raised his revolver and fired point blank at her. The bullet missed its mark and she kept on. Again he fired and she felt a strange sensation at her shoulder. Then she turned and ran toward Em met Marshall, who was running toward her down the road. Fannie led him to ward the spot where her sister was held by Almy. As they approached two more shots were fired. There was a cry of agony from poor Christie, and all was over. Then Marshall saw Almy run up the hill and disappear. Since then he has not been seen. Christie's face was terribly disfigured by blows from the revolver and by two horrible pistol shot wounds. Almy's infatuation for tbe young wom an was known to her parents and to her self, but nobody dreamed that he would resort to violence. When be proposed marriage, and it was learned that Christie disliked his attentions, ha was discharged. That was last March. Since then he has dogged her footsteps. Warden*« EDWIN BOOTH BLACKMAILED.
