Wilson Howard lived long enough to tel! that it was “Tom” Baker and Charles Wootou who fired the explo sive bullets. When James B. Howard heard that his brother was killed and that his father was shot badly, he armed him self and rode at a gallop to the scene. At the store of A. B. Howard he found a crowd, some of whom had come after the grave clothes of Wilson Howard and Burch Store. James as sisted in selecting them, and was on tiie point of leaving when George W. Baker rode up. Without stopping to consider that this was the one man in Clay County who never carried a pistol, young Howard leveled bis weapon and fired a bullet into the old man’s abdemen, producing almost instant death.

He was released on hail. Sheriff B. P. White, Jr., summoned one hundred deputies to arrest the Bakers, and they were brought in for examining trials before County Judge J. W. Wright. The trials laded three days. The Howards swore to seeing the Bakers do the shooting, but the Bakers proved by their witnesses that they were five miles away at the time of the shooting, and Judge Wright dismissed the Bakers froi* custody. On the day after the trial. “Sid” Baker, a son-in-law of “?-al” Howard, but no kin to George aker s sons, overtook Charles Wcown. who was said to have shot Burch Store.

Upon motion the trials were transferred to the Knox County Court at Barbours* viile. The town of Manchester, the headquarters of tlie feud, was in a con dition of such lawlessness that the Gov ernor sent several companies of State militia from Lexington to tlie scene. They were charged with tlie duty of taking the Baker prisoners to the Court House at Barboursville, and also of protecting them from the murderous intentions of the Howards and the Whites. They garrisoned the Baker house. On all sides larked Howards and Whites, many of them dead shots, waiting for a chance to “plug” a Baker or two. Sheriff White sent his family away and tilled his house with his friends. The house looked upon the guard tent where “Tom” Baker was a prisoner. On June 10, while the feeling was at its height and preparations were on the way for the march to Barboursville, “Tom” Baker came out of his prison SHERIFF “ben” I’. WHITE.

Mrs. “Tom” Baker ran up to advise her husband not to allow himself to be a target for the Howards. While she was talking to him a shot rang out from the White residence, and Tom Baker dropped dead before his wife’s eves. The woman hysterically called upon Colonel Williams, who was in charge of the troops, to turn his Cat ling gun on the White house and de stroy it.

The red Illy of Palestine is in sir? *nd shape much like our Easter lilies, but they are yellow with purple streaks upon the outside and a red blush tint within. In the bottom of each bell there are six drops of sweet water-like tears. If you take these away six more will at once take their pteces. About this flower this pretty t*ory Is told by the simple folk who live near there: “Once the Garden of Gethsemane was full of flowers of all kinds, and among them none so fair and queenly as the slender, stately Illy, with all her clustering bells proud ly upright It was eventime, and the Lord came to walk awhile in His gar den. As He passed along, each gentle f>ower bowed before Him while He breathed the refreshment of the quiet hour upon them; but when He came to the lily her haughty head remained erect in the defiance ol conscious boauty. The Lord paused and looked upon her. For a second she braved that bright, mild eye of reproof, then slowly bent her silvery bells, while blushes swept in painful brilliancy over them. Still the Lord’s gaze rested on her; lower sank her head, deeper burned her crimson; then tear after tear welled up in the lily cups. At this the Lord passed on. When morning came all the flowers lifted thelh heads and smiled to see the light; all but the lily, that once white queen amen" them. Her head remained bowed in shame, while to this day she blushes over her vanity, and the tears of re pentance still flow in the delicate cups of the flower that refused to bend be fore the Ix>rd as He walked in the Garden of Gethsemane at the evening hour.” Still More Counterfeiting.

This habit led one day to a remarkable scene, of which I happened to be a spectator. He was engaged in the trial of a case involving tho title of some farm lands, and a number of country men were called to testify on the oth er side. They were naturally 111 at ease, being unused to city ways, and when Simmondson came to cross-ex amine he found them easy prey. He harassed them in every imaginable manner, and whenever they would -how signa of confusion would roar out: ‘What are you hesitating for* Are you afraid you may tell a lie?’ I" the victim replied ‘No,’ Simmondson would retort. T was sure you didn’t fear a little thing like that.* and if the answer was ‘Yes,’ he would say. with a sneer: ‘Ah! I thought so.’ In short, he had them both ways, and the poor fellows, being strangers to repartee, were badly discomfited. The last wit ness he took in hand was a tall, lank farmer with a very thoughtful eye. He had watched the baiting cf his neighbors in dead silence and took the* stand with perfect composure. Sirn mondson evidently set him down as a lout, and when the witness hesitated over some question a moment later he fired his favorite shot: ‘What are y’ studying about?’ he bellowed. “Fraid of telling a lie, too, I suppose?’ With out any apparent haste the country man picked up a massive inkstand and hurled it straight at Blrnmondson’s head, catching him on tho bridge cf the nose, and knocking him perfectly senseless. ‘That’s what I was a-study in’ about,’ he drawled in the moment of dead silence that followed the act. Needless to say, a tremendous hubub ensued, hut everybody was secretly pleased, and while the judge fined the farmer heavily for contempt, he sub sequently remitted the sentence. Simmondson was carried home and was laid up for several weeks. When he emerged he was as gentle as a dove, and it was said he never bullied another witness. He subsequently drifted out to California, where he tiled during the war.” Orders issued by the German West African officials that all firearms in the hands of natives shall be stamped and registered have aroused much dis content.
