nounced Sol Glass nh nit noon to
Justice Winchester when ho was ar
raigned on n chtirgo of maltreating
Ids divorced wife Mrs Kcrrilier
Ho supported himself on tho man-tie-piece
and began to weep bit
This is n very grave charge

Winchester who had llrsl continued
the case until Thursday and tlxcd
the bond of Glass ntLr
Just before ho started out wltll
Olllcer Jeff Harnliurt to llnd a bonds
man ho hesitated turned and said
ho would submit the case
You aro charged with attempting
to kill your wife and with keeping
her iu continual four of bodily liiitin
nndfeWith other culpable nets You
have done so contrary to law and
lmve no claim upon this woman She
is not your wife Ill have to give
you the full extent of tho Inw
Thus spoKo the oracle Justice
Id rattier sec my codlu than spend
even fifty days iu jail
Kcrrilier you oughtnt to have
tills done to me 1 tills came from a
uontrite heart
Well Sol you oughtnt to have
done me like you did
Hits is the sententious colloquy
that occurred between Glass and the
woman he attempted to kill only yes-
terdav Hoth looked sorry Hit very
These principals Sol Gloss the
wary and his much abused
and divorced wife who ha been
mortallv nfraid of him for several
months past wcro face to faco hoth

leaned upon the mantle piece
In the justicos olllco and wept bit
terly His hand stole into Ins pocket
unnoticed and in an iustuut ho drew
forth his knife one blade opeued
and main nJuuge at -hi roatinik
ing an nttempt ut selt destruution
which happily was thwarted by the
ngillty and pretence of mind of Olll
cer Jeff Haruhart who seized the
resolute arm Just in time with the
exclamation Sol you mustnt kill
There was great excitement among
the spectators -at this unexpected
turn of affairs mid Mrs Glass
seemed relieved to see that there was
protection near and that her incor
rigible husband haviug no one else
to cut had decided to cut himself
Justice Winchester passed sen
tence for S 100 the extreme penalty
of the law mid Solonniti dried the
briny secretions iu the corner of his
eyes He sunt no would go to jail
without resistance and was safely
incarcerated there by Olllcer Ham

The capture of this man who
is n desperado on u small scale was
a skillful piece of detective work As
told else where Glass attempted o
kill his wife yesterday afternoon He
llrst threatened to shoot her and then
drew a knife on her
She contrived to escape and ran
out into the road near Mecliauicshurg
fortunately meeting Olllcer Harnliurt
Her clothes were torn trot
her nrms and she warned
tho olllcer against going inside
saying that Glass would kill him The
olllcer went in and Glass throw his
hand into his pocket hut was quickly
covered by tho olllecrs pistol and
forced to throw up his hands He
hud already given the pistol to his
daugliter however and hud nothing
but the knife Olllcer Harnliurt lind
to let him go having no warrant for
his arrest nnd not having sjeen any of
tho dilllciilty
Tills morning Olllcers Hiirnhurt
and Phillips were deputized by Sher
iff Holland to go out and get Glass
All tho deputy sheriffs and constables
had been after the elusive miscreant
for tho past six or eight mouths but
could never capture him
Tho olllcers ensconced themselves
in buggy buttoned up their coats
so their stars wouldnt show and
struck tho trail
About four miles from the city on
tho Clarks river road they met a
crowd and began offering to trade
horses Nobody recognized them
and the const was clear
Olllcer Harnliurt asked something
about Sol Glass having horses to
trade and ono old fellow remarked
I liiiint seed Sol Glass for ueurly a
year till this uioruin I seed him
up tho road hyar nn 1 speck hes
Tho olllcers proceeded up tho road
and met Glass who was kcoping In
tho mlddlo of tho road Ho was ar
rested and mndo no resistance and
tho olllcers would likely never have
found out where ho was if tlioy had
not played tho horse trade racket
as tliov wcro about to abandon tao
search when thoy ascertained that
tho man thoy wanted was in tho
Glass has no earthly way to liqui
date his heavy line and us u result
will likely remain in Juil for three
mouths or wore
