about two months aero, we
bave sold nearly
THREE CAR LOADS
of Ranges, and still they go. The public
knows a good thing when it see it. and a
sensible person does not expect the earth
with a feure around it for a dime, or hold
a quarter too close to his nose to see a dol

Christopher M rry Rarg in the Anar
chists Corner of the Cook County
Just For the Muider of His Wife
Chicago, 111., April 22. Christopher
Merry was hung in tbe Cook county
jail at 12 02 p. m for the murder of bis
wire on .November i last. Tie execu
tion took place in tbe same corner of
the old jail in which tbe anrr:bists
forfeited tbeir livee, and the rop?s, the
handcuffs, the straps were tbe same as
used on one of tue victims of tbe gal
lows on that occasion. The scaffold
was erected last night, tbe mechanism
being so complete that less than two
hours were required to put it together
and test it
The crime for which Merry died to
day was one of the most brutal in local
police annals. Merry and a number
of h's xssociates had terrorized tbe cit
izens in tbe Maxwell police district for
yrars. He was ap dler by tro.de and
a ard p litician by occupation and bis
ability to carry his own pre 3 net and a
good many of tbe surrounding ones had
secured him immunity from police in
terference for many years.
The night of Tuesday, November 23
Captain Wheeler of the Maxwell sire it
station was notified that a murder had
been committ- d in a cottage at 50
Hope street a dark and narrow alley
running east and west between Moreen
street and Blue Island avenue, just
north cf West Polk street. The first
tio given the police was in the shape
of an anonjmous letter in which it was
stated that Mrs. Merry had not been
seen s-ince tbe previous Thursday,
whn sle bad h-d a quarrel with the
despe -do. The cap'ain, accornoanied
by two detectives, went to the cottage
and investigated, finding evidence of a
struggle. Tbe only clew to a murder,
however, was a clot of b'ood on tbe
mattress. The ohild of Chris Merry
was que-tio- ed and the little fellow
unwittingly told enough to explain the
blood clot. "Papa hit mamma with a
poker and then took her away in a
wagon," was the little fellow's concise
statement. Inquiry was made in the
neighborhood and tben the police be
gan to try to trace the bo-y, satisfied
that the woman bad been killed
James Hickey, alias Ryan, one of Mer-
rv'e ass dates, was arrested two days
. . : . i Al a. i
later oli suspit'iuo tagd tie xoew some
thing of the murder. He was found
hiding in the bay in a stable. He
maintained silence until after tbe
poUce took Clotwortby Gougb, an un
cle of Merry, into custody. Gougb
knew much of the domestic life of
Mt rry and told all be knew. Hickey
was made to believe that Cough bad
told all he knew act tbe police had
Ufle f O'Jhje to ind-cing him to
do llew bp. He told bow he $ went
to tr e co tage about e gr.t o clock tve
n'ght of the murder and found Smith,
a pal of Merry's in tbe kitchen. Mt rry
and bis wild were in the front rcqm
qu irreliog. "'He saw Merry f-flke his
wire over fne head w-th a poser nl
when sbe fell, pick her up and crry
her to tbe sofa. Tbe q a-rel was
over a triv'al matter snd Chris beat his
hslf famished wife, Pauline before tbe
eyes of tbeir tbree ear old bby uctil
nearly every bone In her body was
broken and then he calmlv wa'ched
her dying struggle from 8 o'clock till
midnigh''. The next night -re
and Snrth nssii8,d M-rry to take the
remains, which had remained h'.dden
under the kicten floor during.tbe day,
to Eigbty-3eventh elrest, where they
were buried in a ditch. Here the
body was found by Captain Wheeler
ard bis detectives Sunday, November
28. In tbs meantime Merry and
Soai h had disappeared A hue snd
cry was sent throughout the country by
tne po lei department, energetic
sheriffs in twen'y counties of as
many states arrested tramps on sus
picion, and about all the available force
of the local detective department was
kept on tbe jump for weeks only to
bed that in every rase tbe captors of
tbe supposed murderers had been mis
taken. Finally Merry ard Smith were
corralled near Princeton, Ky. Tbe
one admitted his guilt and the other his
complicity Merry was tried and con
victed, and tbe date of execution set
for 'he 18th of February. A stay of
execution was granted to give tbe con
demned man's attorneys time to ex
haust every possible legal means tbat
could be brought to bear in the
prisoner's .behalf. All were unavai'-
ing, however, and. further clemency
was denied.
AN E GNOMICAL i1 EAST.
Appetizirg Luu -heons Given at a
Small Cost
"Proveriy Luncheons" is a new name
f r the economical fea-ts which groups
of people give from, time to time. A
company of eight women have found
it poss ble to give in turn ample and
app tizing lu:.cneous to this number
for the sum of $2. With a little care
that a simple dish be perfectly coo'ted
and served, the luncheons have proved
gastronomic successes a? well as pleas
ant occasions of friendly intercourse.
One of the hostesses says that until the
matter is looked into, it is not under
stood how much the nonessentials of a
cost the salted almonds and bonbons
and various similar things when orj
aered carte-bianche Irom a caterer.
Por example most grocers sell the or
dinary almonds shelled at about 25
cents a pound. Half a pound salted at
home is an ample allowance for a lun
eh eon of eight, and tbe cost is 18 cents
the few dt ops of oil and the pinch of
salt costing too little to estimate. The
qne.ti o of flowers was a serious one
with the poverty-luncheon hostessep,
but it was solved by choosing Japanese
blossoms, which we-e subsequently
used also, ani consequen ly cost very
little for one oc -asioa. The lun-he ns
served con6i?tel of four courses bouil
lon, clam broth, or something similar
with a meat, green salad, and des
sert course. New York Evening

To Save the DePauw University.
Indianapolis, April 22. A three M
days' conference of ministers aud lay- fi
men of the Methodise church was be- 7
gun here today for the purpose of dis- j n
cussing ways and means to save ue
Pauw University at Gref ncastle, this
state, which is threatened by the
failure of the DePauw state. Tbe
university is one of the best known
educational institutions of tbe state
and bas an attendance of more than
000. The late Washington De Pauw
provided for it a bequet w' ich would
have equalled all of its needs, but
through tbe failure of .the De Pauw
estate tbe millions tbat bad been an

proposed to piao the universi y under

his is done, litt'e difficulty will be ex
