M JACKSONVILLE ! FIRE BUG CAUGHT j IWillinm Gallagher, an 18-Year-! Old Negro, Confesses to Set- 'ing Seven Fires. MADE EIGHTH ATTEMPT Karnirrs' Vigilance Coiiiinltlre llrnril f nil Oil Soaked llnfii' In Mold llnrn ii ii il Kepi Wnlcli -Fli'c Slnrlcd it H limit Tliclr fccclnir H. Brattleboro, Oct. 3. Tho fire blip who 5ias terrorized Jacksonville was caught this mornltiB after an unsuccessful at tempt to lire the eighth set of buildings in Unit town In the past two months. The Incendiary is William Gallagher, u negro JS cars old, who went to Jacksonville) last November from Springfield, Mass. The negro has a reformatory record. Ills capture -was effected by IS stalwart farm ers, who had been sworn in as deputy Khorlffs. At first the negro would admit nothing. Hut after three hours' ques tioning he admitted that he hud set all the fires and that he attempted to poison the horses. The last attempt at his dastardly work ivas In the new barn connected with U19 lintel where Gallagher was employed. I esterday a hemp rope soaked In kero H'ne was found running from the base ment of the barn through the tloor to the hay. Word was passed around and 3" of the farmers ut hand watched tho earn until after midnight. In spite of their vigil a flame was seen making its 1 way up the oil soaked rope. Immediately nil the guards made for the fire and suc ceeded In extinguishing It. A search was made but no one could bo found. At last several made their way 1o tho negro's room .mil charged him with tho crime believing him to be tho only ono who could have made his way to and from tho barn unseen. He wu piled by the determined farmers Willi question after question but all in vain until weary n.th trying to escape the net they were weaving around him he broke down and confessed that It was his love of excitement and desire to see the flames light up the skies that made him commit those terrible deeds. The first fire that he set was on July ?! when the barns of W. A. Hro-.vn wero reduced to ashes. Then came ihe 1 uttempt to poison the horses of W. A. I I'larU by putting meal nnd Tarls' preen Into their mangers. Luckily tho horses did not ent this. An out building of the Masonic hall was dis covered to lie on lire about two weeks afterward and the fire put out In time to save the liall. Then came an other attempt to burn another barn of' Mr. Hrown. Two weeks ago the house, nnd barn of Arthur It. Ch'ase were re-I riuced to ashes. Thn occupants escnp-1 rd In their night clothes. The entire side of tho Mnln street was seriously! threatened and but for the aid of a wind that sprung up half the houses In the little town would have been laid to the ground. The barn of II. II. Porter was flrerl on the 24th of last month. Then one of the hotel barns was completely destroyed Saturday light. 1 What to do was more than the towns people could solve. A reward of $200 was offered for the capture of the fire Perfect Womanhood The greatest menace to woman's permanent happiness in life is the suffering that comes from some de rangement of the feminine organs. Many thousands of women have realized" this too Into to save thoir health, barely In time to save their lives. To be a successful wife, to retain the love and admiration of her hus band, should bo a woman's constant study .

Dull sunken eyes surrounded by dark rings, blanched cheeks and lips, and a sallow complexion tell of anaemia's ravages; while low spirits, indigestion and backaches complete her miseries. To the suffering sex at all ages, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills give a helping hand and the joy of full health by increasing, enriching, and purifying the blood. Mrs. Evelyn Creusere, of 8n Boule vard West, Detroit, Mich., says: "My trouble began about six years afro and after a time I became so weak I mold not do anv work at all. I had severe bnekaches and such dreadful heidarhes in the back part and top of my head. My eyes were easily tired and at times I saw black spots before them. 1 consulted several doctors but without tho slightest benefit. "I lost continually in weight and strength and 'a' almost in despair until 1 tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. At the rnd of three months I had gained ten pounds in weight and had no more trouble with my nerves. I have been in perfect health ever since and heartily commend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
