St. Louis, Feb. 15. A special to tho
Republic from Pino Bluff, Ark., says:
John Kelly, tho negro who murdered J.
T. JlcAdam, a prominent citizen of this
city, on the streets, was captured ut Hi
son, twenty miles south of here, and
brought here.
Tho nuws of the capture spread rap
idly, and when it became known Kelly
would reach here a crowd of 1000 con
gregated, and it became apparent num
mary justice would bo speedily adminis
tered. As soon as tho train arrived the
crowd took tho prisoner from tho ollleers,
and marching to tho courthoUM.', pro
cured a roe and placed ono end around
the victim's neck, while tho other was
thrown over the cro-s-arm of a telegraph
polo and Kelly was soon hanging forty
feet in tho air, and his body was riddled
with bullets.
As tho hotly of lifeless Kelly swung
from side to side the air resounded with
cries of "' Lynch Uulbert Harris, his ac
complice. " A rush was made for tho
jail in tho rear of tho courthouse. Ac
cess to the jail was effected with axes
and Harris was rushed to tho front,
where another ropo was secured, and as
the clock on tho courthouse tolled a
quarter to eleven his body was jerked
into the air. Simultaneously there was
tho report of 100 shots and the body was
a corpse. Both men were hanged from
tho same telegraph post. Tho bodies tiro
now dangling in the air.

Washixhton, Feb. 1."). The crowd at
the president's reception at the White
House is believed to have been tho
largest that ever attended a state rccep
tion. So great was the throng and so
closely were the people jammed together
in tho east room, and in making their
entrance to and exit from tho mansion,
that ornaments were torn from the
ladies' gowns and trampled under foot,
in some cases all traces of them being
lost. In one instance a diamond star
valued at $1000 was torn from tho lace
on a lady's corsage, while soveral soli
taire pins, amounting in value to ."00,
shared a similar fate. Fortunately for
the owners, tho diamonds were all
found. One of the tallest army oflicers
present had his epaulets torn from his
shoulders, while of lace handkerchiefs,
ribbons and such additions to ladies'
toilets there were enough lost to stock a
moderate millinery establishment.
(Inly faun- Home lo Die.
Mascoutaii, 111., Fob. 15 Frank Huil
ling left Mnseoutah thirty-two years ago
to seek his fortune in the west. No
word was received from him by his rel
atives for twenty-eight years, and he
was given up for dead. Recently it was
learned that he was in Arizona, where
he owned a large wagon train. Ho had
irt'cumulated a moderate fortune there,
and was happy in his western home.
About a month ago a gray-haired man
nlighted from a train here. It was
Frank Huilling. Ho had been kicked
by a mule some time before, sustaining
fatal injuries, and had returned to his
boyhood homo to die. Ho found that
his parents had both been dead many
years, but there were sisters and broth
ers left to receive him and tenderly euro
for him in his last days. Ho died late
this evening.

Ho was sitting in a window in tho main 1
room discussing with Officer Welbasky
tho recent attempt of Frank Henderson

basky remarked that ho had tho revolver
in his overcoat pocket which Henderson
had used.
"Let mo see it, " said Colo as he reached
into Welbasky's pocket to take tho
weapon out. Welbasky's hand was also
in tho pocket and tho weapon was acci
dentally discharged. Tho bullet entered
Cole's right eye and lodged in the back
of his head. Ho died in a fow minutes.

St. Joski'U, Mo., Feb. 15. Tho war
about tho flag on tho public school
threatened to break out again. Janitor
McGinty of tho Garfield school hung
tho stars and stripes unsido down.
Soveral neighbors called his attention to
tho change of iiosition, but McGinty.
who was in a humorous mood, told
them ho was running that flag, and
it should remain as it was.
In an hour's time Garfield Hill
was alive with angry patriots, but
tho janitor's fun was cut short when
Secretary Parker of the school board
drove up and gavo instructions to Mc
Ginty to placo tho flag in right shape and
to "stop his monkeying."

Hnsbitiid and Wlfi Commit Suicide To
gether. Gallatin, Tenn., Feb. 15. A most
deplorable tragedy is reported from
Portland, a small town in tho northern
portion of this county, near tho Ken
tucky line. Elias Hardue, a well known
young farmer of that neighborhood, .and
wife, wero found at home lying
dead on the lloor of their bedcham
ber, with their thioats cut from car to
ear. Tho circumstances were such as to
create tho belief that tho deaths wero
both tho result of a deliberately planned
suicide, though tho reports that reached
this plaoo are rather meagre and unsat
isfactory as to tho particulars. Both
bodies wero lying on pillows on the lloor,
nnd near Mrs Hardue was a bloody
razor with which tho ghastly deed had
been committed. Tho act that the razor
lay nearest Mrs. Hardue, led to the con
jecture that she was tho last to uso tho
instrument of death. In fact, this the
ory is supported by a noto which is said
to have been found in tho room, written
in Mrs. Hardue's hand and signed by
her, in which it was stated bhe and her
husband had no friends, and as he had
concluded to commit suicide, bho would
take her own life rather than live with
out him. Tho couple had been married
only a year and appeared to live happily,
and no cause can be divined for tho mel
ancholia that teems to have led to the
desperate act.

Ni:w York, Feb 15. A World Wash
ington special says: Postmaster General
Wanamaker has profited very largely
by the recent rise in Reading stock since
Wednesday. The postmaster general's
share in tho increased value of the stock
is understood to foot up over 1,000,000.
A prominent gentleman from Philadel
phia is quoted as follows:
"The head of tho post office department
is a very lucky man. Thejiet iirolit on
his interest this year is more than $1,000,-
uuu. Jt is a Dig sum but he deserves it,
for ho held on under very discouraging
circumstances. All of his troubles a
year or so ago wero brought about by
his lieavj interest in Reading. He was
in a tight place, so tight a place that ho
would have gone to tho wall if the
Uroxels had not come to his assistance.
They helped him to the extent of $000,000
and offeied to assist him with as much
more if necessary, but he managed to
get along without it. His fight with
Gould totteied him gieatly. Ho has
However, weathered the storm and
turned the corner. To be nearly exact,
Mr. Wanamaker is about $1,200,000 but
ter off than he was a short time ago."'

How many continue to suffer from year
to year from the effects of blood poison!
Some seem to get possessed of the insan
idea that there is no cure. Yet nature hai
provided a cure for every ailment. There
are herbs of such suru healing virtue that,
rightly used, they will eradicate every
trace of Wood jioison from the system.
These herb are nlended in the composi
tion of Or. John Hull's 8arsa)arilla, ft
remedy that litis restored to health more
tictims of inherited and contagious blood
disease than nil other medicines put to
gether. Don't suffer longer, but fiivo this
remedy a trial. If it did not excel in
curative virtue the many so called blood
medicines that are commonly found in
drug stores, no would icver spend one
cent to advertise it. Our object is to re
lieve.suireriiij; humanity, and every bottle
sold proves tliii to be a fact. Mrs. Robert
A. 'White, of t'armllton, Ky., writes:
