Leave orders ath Produose arbetenwxt to month age ol wt HELPING HER OUT. A Touch of Realism not Down in the Bills in aTexas Theatre. Minnie Maddern, who made her initial appearance in thiscity on April 3,Iwas the heroine of quite a thrilling adventure dur ing her Texas tour. It was in an intericr town, Where the festive cowboy "flourish eth even as a green bay tree," and has an occasional picnic when it strikes his erra tic fancy, that Miss Maddern held forth as Chip in "Fogg's Ferry." The play pro gressed without special interest not down on the programme as being in the regular order of events, until the steamboat scene, in the third act, when Chip is discovered In an old mill on the banks of a river. She had overheard the villian's plot to brow up the steamer on which her beefhactor is bearing the papers to a place of sattity, by placing a torpedo in the channel directly in the way of the coming vessel. Chip is armed with a pistol, and nerving herself, aims at the infernal machine, hoping by a well directed shot to explode it. The whistle of the approaching steamer be. tokens its rapid coming, and soon the sound of escaping steam and the splash of the revolving wheels break on the listen ing ear. Nearer and nearer the ominous sound rings out upon the nigh;, and soon the bow of the boat greets .the expectant gaze of the audience. Chip nerves herself for the shot, but, alas! on this particular occasion the cartridge failed to explode. A moment more and all would be lost, for there, plain to be seen, bobbing up on the turbid waters, was the torpedo. Miss Mad dern, though a little surprised at the mis ire of her weapon. was cocking it for an other shot, when suddenly a cowboy jumped to his feet in the audience, and flourishing a navy-six, shouted: "Stand a little to one side, gall, and I'll bust it for you. Blame my eyes but that chap ain't going to dish up that boat that way." The ominous clink of a 44-calibre was distieut ly heard, and as he pointed his pistol, Miss Maddern, with great presence of mind, without moving from her position, for the second time pulled the trigger, fortunately with better success. The torpedo duly ex ploded, and the steamer glided on majes tically in safety. The audience felt re lieved, ald nobody more so than Miss Maddern, who did not care to be a party to a cowboy's markmanship shot. As Miss Maddern was :leaving the theatre that evening she was accosted jt the stage door by the identical cowboy, who sans cere monie, said, "say, little gal, little more'n there'd been the devil to pay, an' all own in' to that little popgun of your'n. You can't depend on 'em. You want some thing that when you get the drop on a fel low you know you've got him right there. I was going to help you out this evening without asking you and blow the blamed thing up myself, only you was right in the road and I couldn't draw a bead on it. Don't never let it happen again, and I'm going to heel you so you'll be in proper shape." Suiting the action to the word he produced a *navy Colt and bashfully handed it to her with the remark: "It's your'n, little gal, and it's a daisy. I hate to part with it, but what's a fellow to do when he's hit as bad as I am. Maybe 1'll get the laugh for this, but none of 'em's game enough to show their teeth to me, you bet! Good-bye." He strode away, leaving the little lady, Colt in hand. Hardly a Gallant Lover, Madison, Special Telegram, May 17. Cora Voight charges one Thomas of the village of Sun Prairie with attempting to take her life. The couple were engaged to be married. The girl claims that Thom as tried to induce her to take a boat ride, she refused when he pushed her into the water, jumped in himself, and two or three times held her head under water. Her cries attracted a party to the scene, when Thomas let her go. He says that the girl jumped in threat/ng to drown herselt, and he jumped to rescue her. Great ex citement exists in the village. BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY. WATERLOO, Special Telegram, May 17. Concerning the alleged attempt of Joseph Thomas to drown Miss Voight, the latter says that while walking with him, talking ot the coming marriage, they arrived at the brink of the pond, when, without a word Thomas pushed her into the water. Following her there himself, he took hold of her and pushed her under the water, holding her there for a few seconds. He then let her come up to the surface, when she attempted to reich some willows near by, but failed, whereupon he again im mersed her, and again let her come to the surface, and this time she succeeded in reaching the willows and screamed for help, which brought a lad to her aid. She stated that she was sure Mr. Thomas inten. ded to kill her, and, in confirmation of her story, showed several bruises upon her throat. Mr. Thomas, on the other hand asserts his innocence, and says, while walking, Miss Voight became angry charging him with paying too much at tention to another young lady; that she jumped into the pond with the intention of drowning herself, and that he had fol owed her to save her.
