was echoing with the laughter and ap
plause of the audience, a series of
shots rattled In the rear of the auditor
ium, and a man in evening dress was
seen to fall across a table vX which he
was sitting with a party of frtends. The
man who had fired the shots fled, pistol

Audience Thrown Into Tanic.
Instantly the great audience "wa3
thrown into a panic and a wild stam
pede occurred, during which chairs and
tables were overturned and men and
women fought with desperation to es
cape from the roof. The first intima
tion of trouble came when walking be
hind his seated victim, and drawing an
automatic pistol he fired three shots.
Thaw Had Been Watching, Evidently.
White had been previously to the
Manhattan club and had only been at
the garden a few minutes when Thaw
attacked him. Thaw had been pres
ent during the entire performance.
With a woman, said to be Mrs. Thaw,
he had taken seats at a rear table. He
was in evening dress, and his overcoat
was thrown over the back of his chair.
He got up every few minutes and walk- j
ed about, and the spectators later re
called that lie had acted verv nervous
ly. DEED WAS COWAUDLY DONE
Shoots from Behind Without a Word
to Warn His Victim.
The sextette of women on the stage
had begun a song when Thaw left his ;
wife, and walking rapidly down the :
aisle stood for a few minutes riirhr :
I behind White, looking at him hard.
j n nno apiarentiy was mtoriy ignorant
of his peril. Then Thaw quickly pulletl
a pistol from his trousers pocket, and
In quick succession tired three shots.
; Two took effe-.-t, either wound being
mortal. White without a sound slipped
down to the floor, the chair and table
fa ling on top of him.
The curtain was rung down quickly.

Standing before the sergeant's desk in
easy pose, his overcoat hanging over
his left arm, he first calmly took out a

disappeared in the excitement while 1

On the way to the police station To-,

No Time For Surgery.
The average woman thinks the sun
and stars would cease to shine sooner
than that she could interfere with the
resmlnr routine of household duties. A
Sabetha woman was recently informed
by her (physician that she would have
to have an operation performed. She
said she didn't see how she could;
that Monday was washing day, Tues
day Ironing day, Wednesday the mis
sionary society met, Thursday was the
day to clean up, Friday to bake, Sat
urday to give the children their baths
and mend. If be could get it in Sun
day after dinner and before evening
services perhaps she would try it-

The Sardinians.
Sardinia was a wild place in the mid
dle of the last century. A traveler
says: "The men are clothed in goat
skins, one before and another behind.
without breeches, shoes or stockings,
and a woolen or 6kln cap on the head.
The women have no other habiliments
than a long woolen gown and a woolen
cap. The peasants always go armed
to defend themselves from one another,
so that traveling in the interior Is ex
tremely unsafe without an escort, and
it is even dangerous for ships to send
their people on shore for water "unless
thev are well armed. In short, the
Sardes are the Malays of the Mediter
ranean."
Nature's Methods.
When one is sick ther is usually
something in the stomach that nature
wants to throw up. When one has diar
rhea nature is striving to remove of
fending material from the system
When one perspires profusely nature Is
getting rid of blood poisons through the
skin. One should never attempt to
check any such effort without being
sure that its arrest will be beneficial.
Tbe Alexandrian Era.
The Alexandrian era Is by some au
thorities begun with the death and by
others with the birth of Alexander the
Great. For a long time after the death
of Alexander this era was in common
use in Egypt and many of the coun
tries which had been under his rule.
It began Nov. 32, 324 B. C.
