Mrs. Ella Pride, who will be one of the chief wit nesses against the Night Riders who killed Captain Quentin Rankin, at Walnut I-rfig'. fells a remarkable story of how she joined the riders, how she was whipped as a spy, and how she got away from the dangerous neighbor hood. She says: "It is my ambition to be the chief witness in briitging to justice the lead ers of the Night Riders and breaking up that murderous organization. "I was a night rider myself. I know the names of many leaders. I know their oath and passwords and signs. I with a few other women admitted to the order, rode with the men dressed in men's clothes. "At first nobody was hurt, and I did not suspect the real nature of the or ganization I had joined. I was so act ive in these early exploits which I be lieved were only for the fun of the thing, that before I realized the truth I began to be called 'Queen of the Night Riders,' though I knew nothing of this. "Suddenly something hapcud that left me no longer in ignorance of the true character of the organization I had joined. The fishdocks at Reeifoot lake were burned and names of per sons in our organization were men tioned as those of the perpetrators. Somebody has to suffer for this. I be ing a woman and the secretary, there fore considered the most likely to gos sip, as well as having better inform ation than other members, was accused of revealing the secrets of the order. "I was bound to a ppst. my should ers were bared, and I was beaten mer cilessly with a thorn bush. I felt so angry and outraged that though strips of skin were torn from my shoulders, I did not faint,, I defied them. "When I had been whipped to their satisfaction, they burned my house to the ground and rode away. "Now, I had no borne, and I knew that I could make no move against my enemies while in their midst. So I fled toward the north. "While perfecting my plans for re venge something happend near my old home which I knew would make the authorities there especially welcome the knowledge I lossessed. This was the murder by Night riders of Captain Quentin Rankin and the narrow escape of Colonel B. Z. Taylor, at Walnut Log. Captain Rankin was hanged and his body riddled with bullets. On my return I found that militia was cn camped on Reeifoot lake. "I succeeded in getting to Judge Har ris at Tiptonville. without being recog nized. . As he knew of all that I had suffered. I had no difficulty in convinc ing him of my ability and eagerness to give valuable assistance." HORRIBLY TORN BY CIRCUS LEOPARD Boy Stood Too Near Cage . After Animal Was Teased. Houston, Tex., Dec 12. With his left arm being mangled and lacerated by the claws and cruel teeth of a fierce Indian leopard, little Ernest Lass, the twelve-year-old son of Joseph Lass, the huckster who lives at 1019 Hardy street in the Fifth ward, was held a prisoner for several minutes in the grasp of the beast against its cage while a circus was being unloaded from the train. He was taken to an In firmary, where his arm was dressed, and the surgeons attending states that he will undoubtedly lose the member. The boy stood manfully against the side of the cage while the torture that will result in t he loss of his arm was going on. The animal keepers ran for bars of iron with which to pry loose the leopard's hold, and It was several minutes before the white faced lad could be released. He was taken to the infirmary in an ambulance and placed- under chloroform until the member was dressed. A Ctilnss Story. "Come borne to dinner!" cried a good housewife to her husband at work In a field. "All right." he shouted, "as soon as I hare hid my hoe!"

"that the neighbors have heard you and that some one has already stolen if Struck with the remark, the man r& turned to the field, and. sure enough, the hoe was gone. On returning to his house, impressed with the wisdom of her previous precaution, he whispered into his wife's ear. "The hoe is stolen"" Scrap Book.
