CHARGED AGAINST JEALOUS HUSBAND Angered by Wife’s Friendship for Crippled Man, J. H. Crutchfield Is Accused of At tempting to Maim Her. TRAGEDY HAS SHOCKED ATLANTA, GA. Bath Principal* Belonged to the Beat Society of the Soothern City —Mr*. Crutchfield Long Considered One of the Most Beantifnl Women of That Section —Public Sentiment Entirely With Her. Atlanta. —"Revenge!" This is said to have been J. 11. Crutchfield’s one word when he fired the two shots, says the New York World. His wife fell, and he dropped the re volver to the porch. Both shots had hit, but if he intended, us they charge, to cripple both legs "to match that man," he was but partly successful. The right leg has been amputated above the knee. “That man" knew his wife, and "that man" had lost his legs in a railway accident. Further than that it was nothing. No one dare say a word against Mrs. Crutchfield. She has al ways been a favorite in Atlanta society —handsome, clever, vivacious. The Crutchfields have long been among tho boat known people in At lanta, Ga. It had to be so, because M rs. Crutchfield was considered the handsomest young matron in Atlanta, und southern gallantry still exists. She came from Columbia, S. C., and there she married young Crutchfield 14 years ago. He was a rising young cotton oil broker then; to-day he is accounted well-to-do. Mrs. Crutchfield did not come of a wealthy family—ln fact, her face was all the fortune she brought her husband, but that was enough. There has never been a better dressed yoang matron In all the south than young Mrs. Crutchfield. She had a figure and complexion to set off her beauty, too, and the beautiful clothes bought by her devoted husband. It was dinner and dance and drive all the time. “There goes tho handsome Mrs. Crutchfield!" could be heard in At lanta any day. A\R6 7 Crutchfield L Made Crutchfield Jealous. The chivalrous southerners liked to hear her called that, because she really was. But Crutchfield resented this compliment to his beautiful wife. He didn't like (he drives and the dinners and the dances. He had an idea that his wife should stay at home more and look out for Isoudette and Paul, their two little boys. Mrs. Crutchfield could not see things in his light. They quarreled; they separated. HISTORY OF THE AZORES. Islands at One Time Were Important Part of World. Misfortune rumored some time ago to have f&lleu upon the Azores iu the form of a tidal wave and the disap pearance of several of the islands, visited the western group In 1591, when for 12 days In succession the Islands were shaken by earthquake and the Villa Franca destroyed. Stories are told of volcanic disturb ances In the neighboring sea and of Islands flung from the primal ooze. An English captain in 1720, approach ing the Azores, says; “We made an island of Are and smoke; the ashes fell on our deck like hail and snow, the fire and smoke roared like thun der or great guns.' The hot springs throughout the islands are no doubt the milder manifestations of the fires that were seen In 1811 rising from the sea near St. Michael, accompanied by smoke and ashes. The Azores were once on the verge of beoomlng a power in the world. Pfsrorered, or rather to Then Atlanta society learned for the first time that everything In the Crutchfield home was not as it should have been. There were divorce pro ceedings. The moment the news was printed, Mrs. Crutchfield called at all the newspaper offices in Atlanta and said: "You have published an account of my divorce proceedings. It was all right and —all wrong. We have made up. There is nothing in these charges —nothing." Under tho law there Is what is known as a peace warrant. Crutch field was brought to court upon one. He was charged with striking tils hand some wife. "I did it because of a letter," ho swore. "I took it from her bosom my self. It was from a man in this town. 1 did strike her. I struck her several times. I dragged her out on the veran da. and I pitched her out Into the yard. I thought I had killed her. And that is the only time 1 ever struck her.” The case was dismissed. Mr. and Mrs. Crutchfield left the courtroom arm-in-arm, apparently the happiest of couples. For months they lived together in seeming jputual re gard. They were seen out together of ten, as devoted as two young lovers might well be. Then like a thunder bolt out of a clear sky came a second suit for divorce. This is still pending. Enter "The Man." Mrs. Crutchfield took her two little sons and went to live at No. 300 South Pryor street, Atlanta. It was then that "the man" entered their lives. He was a splendid specimen of manhood—tall. good-looking, athletic, debonair. He was clever and entertaining and the handsome young Mrs. Crutchfield was plainly interested—more than that, not at all. Then came the accident. This friend of the family was a rail road man. He fell between the cars and both his legs had to be amputated to save his life. Mrs. Crutchfield was deeply moved by his misfortune and she tried to help him as he lay in the ward the middle of the fifteenth cen tury, by Vander Berg, a Flemish mer chant. stranded by accident on one of the Islands, Lisbon fitted out an expe dition and took possession of them. Under the rule of Ponibai. a wise Por tuguese minister, the Azoreans "were taught that they might become a peo ple, and Portugal that she might cease to be a despot.” But that happy time did not last long. The islanders were forbidden to trade, except with Por tugal, and the western isles gradually sunk into sullen sloth under the rule of “bigoted ecclesiastics." There came a time, however, when the Azorean wine and oranges and the magnificent wood were allowed to pass freely to England and America. Since then the Azores have been re-created. Love and Mathematics. A Parisian manuscript exists which, 'tls said, reads one way as a metrical innovation to love, and readsback wards as a prose text book on mathe matics. The eager lover read in the lines hope and courage, while the re jected one found, if not consolation, at least distraction, la hie despair. hospital, doomed to be a cripple for life. And that aroused the husband to his fury- Mrs. Crutchfield had been to see “Zaza" at the matinee. Her husband had come to her new home to wait for her. He had to wait two hours. Then Mr.i. Crutchfield said a merry "Good night" to some of her friends who had been to the theater with her and ran up the stoop. ‘ Is that you, Saliie?" asked Crutch field. "Yes," answered his wife, without a thought of what was to come. Thore was a shot; then another. The handsome young wife fell prone and unconscious. Two bullets from her husband's rifle had hit her in the right leg. ' 1 wanted to hit you once in each leg." yelled Crutchfield. •'Then you would have been like that man.” If£ was right. So she would have be.iu. Fu-I Revenge Frustrated. Had the husband's aim been as true on the second shot as it was on the Ami Mrs. Crutchfield would have lost both limbs. But by a merciful mis shet both bullets hit the same limb. The 11-year-old boy, Loudette, heard tho shots. He started down to the doo* to let his mother in. He had just op«i,ed it when «.ue first shot was fired. Ho jumped on the back of his father as tile second bullet was sent on Its eri&ad of vengeance and fought wUh him to keep him from firing again. Crutchfield started to get away. The boy clung to him. "Don't you shoot again!” screamed littls* Loudette, trying to get between the revolver and his mother. The boy couldn’t save his mother’s litnL, but he did save her life by spoil ing his father's aim. Crutchfield ran down the steps. “If you follow me I’ll fix you, too!” he yelled, in his rage. "I was afraid," said the boy, as he tells it now, "and I ran back to my mother. I saw him hit her onco before and I tried to stop him this time.” Crutchfield was arrested at once and burned to the police station. Detective Lockhart says he declared: "It was an accidont. I had the gun in my hand and she grabbed at It. In the scuffle it went off and shot her in the leg. It Is a repeating Winchester, and the explosion of one cartridge load ed it again and this caused the secoqd shot. "I went to my home to look for the man who had ruined it. I did not mean to shoot Saliie, and I hope she wMJ get well.” Over at the hospital Mrs. Crutchfield said: “It was not an accident, and if they don't lock him up he will finish th*. Job if he ever meets me again.” Give Crutchfield Privileges. And here is the strange part of the whole proceeding: Crutchfield was not treated like the ordinary criminal. In fact, ho had the liberty of the city. He was not locked in a cell, but was permitted to engage a special police man at his own expense to accompany him about town, “buying" for his friends In the clubs and cafes, and at- Struck Her Several Times. tending to his own business as a cot ton oil broker. Meanwhile the wife that he had maimed was fighting for her life at the Grady hospital. Gangrene had set in. Her life hung in the balance. The sur geons shook their heads. It was a toss-up whether the wounded woman would live or die. Public sentiment was with the wife. So Crutchfield’s privileges were cur tailed and he was sent to Jail —the "Tower.” But even here he was not locked in a cell, and there is likelihood of a police investigation as to why he was not. Instead, Crutchfield was assigned to a sunny room. He has fitted It up as a combination library and sitting-room— this man who had his awful vengeance. There his stenographers report to him every day. He dictates his letters and cleans up his day's business, and after that he reads and smokes at ease. He has been allowed a big graphophone. DAVID WANTED TO TRAVEL. In a Drtam He Ordered the Sculptor to Let Him Go. A Davenport lady brought homo from Europe recently a letter which she considers one of the most inter esting souvenirs of her trip. It came to her the day after her visit to a curio shop in Rome, where the proprie tor wanted S6O for a statuette of David. In Carrara marble, after Michael Angelo. She offered S4O, which the proprie tor could not think of accepting; but he asked her name and hotel, and next morning she received the following letter: “Roma. Bth March—Dear Madame: To-night I have made a dream. I saw David alive! He was very angry with me. He asked me 'Why don't you let me go to America? The beau tiful lady will take care of me. I want to see the new world! I won’t stay in Rome any longer! I want to travel as a tourist.’ "1 could not say anything agplnst and kart decided to deliver it it the ' and he has 100' odd records of the latest songs and marches. "I Had Rather Be on the Outside Looking In Than on the Inside Look ing Out" Is the favorite tune with Crutchfield, and the other prisoners along his corridor enjoy it as much as does he. "Rather suggestive, oh?" is the salu tation given to callers when they enter while this song is being played, and he usually switches to another tune, "A- Lookin' Out." v Plays Suggestive Tune. The latest of his collectiou has just arrived., It Is from “Tho Spring Chicken" and Is entitled "They Sold Me a Lemon in the Garden of Love, Where They Told Me the Peachaa Grew.” The climax came tho other day when the surgeons said that Mrs. Crutch field would get well, and that her hus band could apply for ball. He at once decided to celebrate. "Call up the best caterer in town,” he ordered of his Jailers. "Have a 'possum supper, and plenty of ale and cider.” They had it in the Jail all right. The news of the feast to come was pub lished in the afternoon papers, and two women admirers of the man who had his "vengeance” sent big frosted cakes as an addition to the repast. When supper time came a large table was brought into Crutchfield’s room and the prisoner-guests and sev eral outsiders filed in for the fun and feasting. The man who had his ven geance did the honors. Dr. O. H. Snyder, charged with sell ing liquor on Sunday, was tho first guest to arrive. He was followed by Ernest Naylor, charged with being a participant in tho riot on that eventful Saturday night in Atlanta when 16 negroes were killed. J. F. Clemmons, held on the Bamc charge, followed. Night Jailer Walter Johnson came next, to give an official tone to the party. John Dorsey, "the best trusty in Georgia," in charge of the jail laun dry, next In Importance, took his place. Three Ohio business men, two from Dayton and one from Springfield, who had made business appointments with Crutchfield before he was arrested, ar rived In Atlanta that day, and hearing Shot to Maim Her. of his plight, railed at his Jail room, at tended to the business under consid eration and remained to enjoy the sup per with their host. One "Turned Down" Plate. Crutchfield made the ninth member of the party, and Insisted on "turning down” an empty plate. Whether this was a tribute to his wife or some visitor who did not arrive is not known. While the revelry was at its height Mrs. Crutchfield was moaning on her couch in the hospital. She will soon be out now. crippled for life. Crutch field was asked- If ho had not intended to cripple her In exactly the way h® did. "No," sard he, "I didn't. I never said that, but I do know a friend who has lost both his legs. You just call up the hospital where they took him and see if she didn’t go there and nurse him when he was hurt.” And that is where this case of latter day revenge stands now. There will be two trials—a criminal one for felon loub assault and another for divorce. Much that will startle will be brought out then. But. no matter who wins or loses, all Atlanta is saying. "What a ven geance ! ’’ Triumph of the Gospel. The Austrian synod met last fall at Erromango, In the New Hebrides. At this place the islanders, then canni bals, murdered the missionaries, John Williams and James Harris, in 1836, the missionary Gordon and his wife in 1861, and Gordon's brother a few years later.

I am much obliged for your kindness. Yours truly, "C. Manettl, Sculptor." It is almost needless to say that the lady surrendered at this appeal and that David enjoyed his trip to Amer ica.—Des Moines Register. Small Duties Enlarge. Duties enlarge in the doing.

Scientific Method of Obtaining Uni formity of Btrain. Visitors to the United States depart ment of agriculture station in Con necticut last season were struck with the marvelous results obtained in breeding for uniformity of strains. The work is to be further carried on. The above illustrates a choice plant with the seed pod bagged.

The main value of the process is to prevent accidental cross fertiliza tion between poor and good plants through the agency of bees and other Insects. Results are so far notable. —New England Homestead. A FEW TIMELY DON’TS. What the Farmer Bhould Remember Not to Do. Don't throw forks farelessly on the floors of passageways In barns. That Is a sort of carelessness that may al most be classed as criminal. Don’t neglect to keep all wheeled vehicles well greased. A wheel that cries out for lubricant Is a good many pounds added to the load of your horse. Don’t throw forks carelessly on the and other trimmings and refuse from orchard, garden and truck patch, for thereby you destroy many harmful Insects and seeds. Don’t invest any money in gold mines, coffee plantations, copper works and the like, thousands of miles from your home, and managed by men you have never seen. By taking this advice you may possibly miss the opportunity of getting enormously rich, but it is altogether likely that by heeding it you will save money enough to buy that piano your daughter hais bee'n* wanting or the new buggy you promised your son If he would stick to the farm. Don't allow any line fence squabble or any family difference to come up to spoil your Thanksgiving feast. It is always a wise rule to think twice be fore you speak once; and if you will take the precaution to think three times, you are pretty sure to get through life without uttering any harsh words, and that means a serene : and sweet existence which is, after all, the only thing worth while. Don't speak in sharp, peremptory tones to your children. You won’t al low the hired man to use such toqps to the horses lest it makes them ner vous, nor to the cows lest it interfere with their milk production. Your sons and daughters are of more value than many horses, or the cattle upon a thousand hills.—Farm Journal. Hints for Farmers. Sod Plowing in the fall will help kill out the white grubs. Aeration of the soil is one great benefit from plowing. Haul in a good supply of dry earth for use in the stables. Have you a good pile of Are wood cut, split and piled where it is dry and handy? Farming demands a man's best ef fort. No use to try to work any old scheme and expect success. Root up the old, unproductive fruit trees and plant in their place young, vigorous trees from the nursery. If not, attend to it now so the wom en folks won't have to hunt in the snow some morning for wood to get breakfast. It is the last half-inch that locks the barn door. We can not round up the tip of the year unless we keep stepping till the work Is all done. One agriculturist says that he would rather have four inches of soil well filled with humus and well tilled than 12 inches poorly filled with humus and poorly tilled. Care of the Horse's Feet. In the care of our horses' feet and legs we should sec that they are kept cleanly enough to not admit of any disease, such as thrush, grease heel, etc„ which are often caused by allow ing the horse to stand on an accumu lation of fermenting manure, or wal low in a muddy yard that contains more or less manure, says a writer in Farmers’ Review. The feet of the growing colt should be watched and if they do not wear evenly the elon gated portions should be pinched off. Allowing the feet to grow out of shape causes an uneven pressure on the joints and parts above and has a ten dency to develop ringbone, spavin and sidebones. Place For Long Ladder. It is often a puzzle to know where to put the long ladder when it is not in use. By spiking two solid pieces of board about a foot long to the posts in the back of the barn shed, high enough up to be out of the way of the cattle, and then hanging the ladder on them, you will solve the problem sug gests Farm Journal. But these strips of board will not be of any use, unlose you keep the ladder on them. THE AIR IN THE SOIL. Important Part It Plays In Mefclfif Plant Food Available. There is a soil atmosphere as cer tainly as there Is an atmosphere above the surface of the soil. This is not generally understood. It is imagined that no air penetrates the soil be cause a person could be smothered in the soil. It is not that there is no air in the soil that a person smothers, but because that air is not in mo tion sufQclent to supply the lungs with the large amount of oxygen re quired every minute. The soil of the earth is full of air as certainly as the waters of the ocean are full of air, which is breathed by the living tb|ngs In the sea by means of appliances es pecially adapted to that purpose. The insects and worms deep in the ground breathe air and live by so doing. Everything is full of air down to the solid rock. It is this soil atmosphere that supplies nitrogen to the minute plants on the roots of other plants, that It may be made over into a kind of nitrogen that the plants can feed upon. The amount of air in the soil is surprising in its quantity, says the Farmers’ Review. It is not small, as might be supposed, but very large. One-half of a cubic foot of soil is air space. The soil particles in a foot of earth of average texture have a sur face of over three acres. We see, then, how It is that the soil warms up quickly if it is well drained. The air in the soil readily transmits the heat rays. That air should be in the soil is very necessary, and its presence should be encouraged by draining the soil so as to keep out water. The presence of water in the soil is the greatest detriment to the presence of air, as the amount of air In water is very small compared with the propor tion of air in the soil, in which the only water is the film water surround ing the soli particles. Most plants that are useful on the farm cannot grow with as little air as they can get out of water, but there are some that can. Such, however, are the marsh grasses and forms of vegetation that we call seml-aquatlc. Even the aquatic grasses use air, but only in small quantities, which they are prepared to draw from the water. We under stand but little as yet about the uso A air plants and what plants require more and what less air, or what plants are adapted to get their air from the water and what from the land. We merely say that this plant or that plant is injured by the wet. If a man is devoting his farm to the growing of plants that need much air in their feeding operations, he must see to it that the soil is so free from water that the roots of the plants can And free air and can take their water only in the form of the film that sur rounds the soil particles. This con sideration should lead to much more perfect drainage than we now have on most farms. If the drainage is only fair the water will remain about the roots of the growing plants for days, and during that time the growth of the plants will be at a standstill. Too much water will therefore sometimes extend the growing season of the corn plant till it is caught by the frost, be cause the plant has lost time and had -to stand still for days in its develop ment. HANGING SEED CORN. A Good Place Is on Nails in Joists of Barn. Here is a method of hanging seed corn to the joists in the bam. Nails are driven into the joists at a distance of three or four Inches apart. Each ear is hung to a nail either by a string attached to a nail driven into the end Hanging Beed Corn in the Barn. of the ear or by one or two husks. If placed where there is plenty of venti lation, says Prairie Farmer, this method of drying corn is reported to be very satisfactory where the corn iu selected early and given a chance to dry out during fall weather.

Here is the lime-sulphur-salt formu la for the San Jose pest: Fresh unslaked lime W pounds Sulphur 9) pounds Salt ir. pounds Water 60 gallons Mix lime with water and boll, stir ring in salt and sulphur. Strain through wire sieve or netting and spray trees with mixture, boiling hot (Creely says warm). Use a good pump with a high pressure, and coat every twig. The spraying may be done any time after leaves have dropped from the trees and before growth begins in the spring. (Special remarks: Boil the mixture one and one-half hours. For winter spraying we advise that the salt be entirely omitted.) —Farm Journal. To Kill Tree Borers. A new method of killing tree borers is mentioned by American Agricul turist: “Bisulphide of carbon may be injected into- holes where the insects are at work. The best injector is a metal or small cheap glass syringe, or a small machine-oil can. About a teaspoonful of bisulphide of carbon is sufficient for each hole/ if injected with some force. After injection, the holes should be plugged with grafting wax. It would be difficult to treat an entire tree by this method, but the trunks and lower branches can be reached.” As to Boil. There must be certain amounts of potash, nitrogen and phosphoric acid in a soil before it can yield a fair crop. Less of this plant food will be required when there is a large propor tion of Ume In the sol.. TO CLEAN CARPETS. METHOD THAT 18 RECOMMENDED BY EXPERT. All Materials Needed Will Be On Hand or are Easy to Acquire—Boms Other Useful Household Hints. The following method of cleaning carpets, according to the House keeper, has been thoroughly tested, and was secured from a professional source: First have the carpet cleaned in the usual manner and tacked down on the floor, whers it is to remain permanently, and it is ready for the cleansing process. Take on£ and a half pounds of the best white laundry soap, one-half pound of white-oak bark, three-fourth pound of borax, one-fourth pound of fuller’s earth, one-half pint of wood alcohol, one-half pint of ammonia, one-half ounce of choloform, and four gallons of water. Tie up the bark in a piece of thin material, and boil in two gal lons of water for four hours. Keep boiling water at hand to replace that lost by evaporation. Now remove the bag, add the soap, shaved fine, the borax, and the fuller’s earth, and let simmer until all are dissolved; then add the other two gallons of water, which should be boiling hot, and when partly cool add the alcohol, ammonia and chloroform. This quantity will clean 30 yeards of carpet. To clean, dip out a cupful of the preparation, put it on the carpet, spread it, and scrub with an ordinary bristle scrubbing brush. The spot scrubbed will be covered with lather, but the carpet will not be wet through. When all the dirt has been removed scrape the lather up into a heap and take it up with a scraper, which can be had of any house furnishing store, or a shingle with a smooth edse will answer very well. When the lather hus been removed go over the carpet with a sponge wrung out of clean water, and dry with a cloth. Austrian enameled ware may now be had in white with a red edge. The housekeeper who takes pride la her kitchen may carry out a red and white scheme, if she thinks the blue and white ware, which has been in use so long, is too ordinary. An upholsterer’s needle will prove very useful to keep in the sewing table. Chair buttons, lounge buttons, etc., can then easily be replaced by the housekeeper. When one lives in the country It is not always possible to send for aid outside. Celluloid toilet articles can be bought at a reasonable price. These are very neat for a young girl’s dress tug table, if each article matches. Although they may be had in colors, white is always daintier and more durable. To use cold lamb, ham, or beef mince it fine with half the quantity of ham and quarter as much bread crunibs. Season with a small onion (if not objectionable), salt, and pep per. Mix this ♦ith an egg and any gravy that may have been left from the roast. Put in a baking pan, cover with bread crumbs, and bake for hall an hour. This is a good dish for luncheon. Mushroom Catsup. Break into quarters line fresli mushrooms, cleaned free from earth. Put a layer in the bottom of an earth en Jar, sprinkle with salt, add more mushrooms and more salt .until all are used. Cover and set on the cellar floor or other cool place for three days, stirring with a wooden spoon three times a day. At the end of this time warm the mushrooms In a kettle mash to a pulp and strain througk coarse netting, squeezing out all the pulp. Measure, cook for ten minutes, then allow for every pint of the liquid a half tablespoonful whole peppers and allspice, a bay leaf, a teaspoonful of onion Juice and a blade of mace. Cook all together over a Are until thick. Strain, cool and pour into sterilized bottles, sealing air tight. The bottles should be small ones, as the catsup does not keep as well as some others after opening. Whistles. Stir to a cream a half pound o| sugar and a quarter pound butter. Add six eggs, whites and yolks beaten separately, with sifted flour to make a stiff batter. Flavor lightly with rose, water. Drop the mixture by the large spoonful on buttered paper on a board or bottom of an Inverted dripping pan. The mixture should be dropped sev eral inches apart so that the cakei can spread out thin. Bake until q light brown. It will not take more jthan five minutes. Then slip off onto a molding board that has white sugar dusted on it. Have ready a round Stick about the dimensions of an old fashioned willow whistle, and roll th« cakes about it while warm. Wher pearly cold slip off, fill with jelly that Is thick. Do Not Sugar Prunes. How many housewives know that prunes require absolutely no sweeten Ing, that If they are cooked slowly foi '‘hours and hours" there is a sugar from them that nature provides as a sweetening.
