Louisville. Nov. 12.—The condition of
John Woodward, president of the Mer
chants National bank of New Albany,
Indiana, and James Tucker, the negro
chauffeur, who were wounded yesterday
by'Thomas Hall, the boy bandit of
Louisville, in the latter’s sensational at
tempt to rob the bank, is practically
unchanged today.
President Woodward is in a serious
condition, and his physicians are in-
clined to be non-conunittal on the case.
The negro is not expected to live.
Hall, the bandit, who will have to an
swer later for the murder of Fawcett,
cashier of the bank, takes his arrest
coolly. The boy's father says the lad
is not insane, and that “he is just
mean. ’’
His attempt to emulate his ideal dime
novel’s heroes is the only explanation
for Hall's deed advanced thus far by
the police.

• olbcrt. n negro, aged 30 yearn, was
captured red-handed while attempting
to force open a large steel safe in th.'
office of the Texas lx>an company, 327

o’clock last night.
The negro was surprised in his work
by C'D I inter lives Bo.leman and Cook
and Patrolmen Bell and Remington.
Two large grips containing plunder
taken from the apartments of Hudson
and Lindley and the Empire Loan com
pany, were recovered by the officers.
The goods stolen by the negro nnd
packed awav were valued atYictween

But for the fact that the negro be
came slightly intoxicated “while on
the job" the probabilities are that lie
would have made his getaway. A quart,
bottle of whiskey, a third of which ha I
been drunk by the burglar, is believed
to have resulted in his work being ac

would have been able to execute it.

The One Is Almost Always Associated
With and Caused By the Other.
Sleep has been fittingly called “tired
nature's sweet restorer.’’ It is a con
dition in which the involuntary func
tions such as nutrition, circulation, re
spiration, etc., go on as usual, while
the voluntary powers are in repose, and
the system undergoes needed repairs.
Ne one has ever been known to live
longer than three weeks without sleep
ing. It is as necessary in physical econ
omy as food and drink.
Insomnia or chronic sleeplessness is
a symptom with which nearly every
sufferer from dyspepsia is annoyed,
either constantly or at frequent and
irregular intervals. This inability to
sleep normally is a very prominent man
ifestation of. indigestion, and exhibits
itself in different forms. In some cases
sleep may come at its accustomed time,
but it docs not bring repose, and the
person awakens entirely too soon, ami
is unable to fall asleep again. In others,
the victim lies awake practically nil
night, tossing and rolling and finally
drops into a troubled and unrestful slum
her at daybreak. Still others, though
they may apparently sleep soundly, are
annoyed with the incubus, or nightmare,
with its horrors of overwhelming waves,
falls from precipitious heights and at
tacks by infuriated and implacable
1 monsters.
All of these distressing symptoms arc
traceable to an irritated and enfeebled
| stomach, and the same is true of grind
ing of the teeth, and twitching and
jerking of the muscles during sleep.
Insomnia is rarely a disease by itself,
but is nearly always a symptom of an
other disease, such as dyspepsia, and in
treating this complaint, many persons
in their efforts to “woo the god of
sleep,’’ resort to the use of such hyp
notics, sedatives, soporifics and narcotics
as the bromides, chloral hydrate, Dover
powders and even morphine.
No greater mistake than this could
well be made, and the reckless use of
such drugs has caused many a sudden
death, while in other cases, even mod
erate use, has set up an incurable drug
using habit among those who resorted
to the use of “sleeping powders.”
To cure insomnia or sleeplessness the
object should be to remove the cause,
and as dyspepsia is the underlying
cause in a large percentage of cases, no
better or safer remedy can be employed
than STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TAB
LETS. By digesting every particle of
food in the stomach, the active and ex
citing cause of insomnia is cut short at
its source aud removed.
These tablets contain only wholesome
ingredients, and there is no danger of
falling into drug-using habits from their
use. Every sufferer from insomnia
should avoid the egregious error of ns
ing hypnotic drugs, as they never cure
the trouble, but only make matters
worse in the end.
Begin taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab- (
lets at once, using one or two after |
each meal, and the same number at bed
time. 1t is also well to have a box of
these powerful digestives close at hand |
during the night so that in case you
are troubled with dyspeptic-insomnia,
uneasiness in the stomach or any other;
symptom of indigestion, qtiiek relief i
mav be obtained.
Purchase a package from your drug
gist at once for 50 cents, and get rid of .
vour insomnia and indigestion. Send
us your name and address for sample

Robert McDonald, the negro, i* still
confined in the county .jail. He has not
vet attempted tn furnish bond, and
thin is lielievcd to be because of the
known ill feeling that exists in the city
against the negro. There i* said to be
much suppressed indignation among the
many friends of the injured officer,
who, because of his genial and jolly
nature, enjoyed a very largo circle of
warm friends and acquaintances.
At present there are three separate
charges pending against the negro. In
the justice court an affidavit filed :
against him by Detective Newnam ■
charges him with maiming and in j
which case he has been bound over to ]
the grand jury. In the county court
there are two affidavits against him,
one charging a disturbance of the peace
and the other with resisting an officer
in the lawful discharge of his duty.
had effected an entrance to the apart
ments of Hudson and Lindley by break
ing in the rear door. Thi* was accom
plish -d with a two inch iron pipe, which
was found Iving beside the door later
by the officers. The glass'in the door
had been smashed. The negro then
evidently thrust his hand through the
opening and removed the bar on the
inside that secured the door.
Here the grips belonging to the ten
ants were taken charge of Dy the ne
gro and everything available was store I
in them by the negro. Every bureau
drawer anil in fact everything in the
rooms was molested. Both Hudson and
Lindley were absent at the time, spend
ing the evening at the fair grounds.
They arc the proprietors of the Empire
Loan company and their rooms are l<>
rated directly in the rear of their
place of business.
The negro, after having taken what
he wanted in the rooms of the ynung
men, the plunder consisting of clothing,
jewelry and a miscellaneous assortment
of articles, next proceeded to break into
the office building in front. He entere I
this building by prying open the door
between it and the rooms of the young
men. Here again everything was com
pletely ransacked ami it was in this of
fice that the negro is believed to have
drank the whiskey, which, in a way, if
thought to have been responsible for his
capture. Gathering what he wanted in
the Empire !<oan office, the negro next
turned his attention to the adjoining
office, that of the Texas Loan com
pany.
As in the other instance, the negro
succeeded in gettting into this place
by forcing a rear door. He had su ■
ceedcd in tapping the till for a fe.v
dollars, ransacked the place and was
giving his attention to the big steel
. money safe, when the officers sprang
upon him.
Burglary Is Discovered.
It was a little after 11 o'clock when
Mr. Lindley reached his office. He ..
once noticed the disorder and realized
that the place had been visited bt a
burglar. Noise in the adjoining office
attracted his attention and peering int i
the place through the door, which stood
ajar, he espied the negro at work. He
quickly hurried from the plate ami al
once communicated with police lira I
quarters. Detectives Bodeman aml i ook
responded at once. Immediately af'er
having sent in the message to police
headquarters Mr. Lindley ran across
Patrolmen Remington aud Hell ami in
formed them. The four officers reached
the place almost simultaneously ami at
onee surrounded the Building. When
Detectives Cook ami Bodeman leaped
through the door and confronted him
with drawn revolvers, the negro was
squatted down in front of the safe. lie
was taken completely by surprise and
offered no resistance.
The officers declare the places visit
ed by the negro were the most thor
oughly ransacked places they ever be
held. B. J. Krause, proprietor of the
Texas Loan company, identified some
shoes and other minor articles. His
cash register had been broken open and
a few dollars extracted. From the
rooms of Hudson and Lindley and the
Empire Loan office were taken six pairs
of trousers, four coats, an overcoat,
shoes, bed sheets and half a dozen
towels, a pair of opera glasses, an em
erald stud, a gold watch and chain, two
; grips, two razors, a safety razor, a
(lady’s necklace and a countless number
of varied articles. All have been Iden
tified by Hudson and Lindley as belong
ing to them.
Colbert had little to say after being
taken to the city hall. Since his arrest
last night jt was ascertained today that
he has been in the eity but a short while
and is said by the local officers to be
an ex convict. They say that he was
convicted of burglary and theft nt
Brenham. Texas, and sentenced to four
years. He has been out but a short
while. The negro will be transferred to
the county authorities this afternoon or
tomorrow morning.

HELLGAMITE HARVEST
Hunting This Bug Is as Much of a Gold
Mine as Gathering Truffles.
Laconia. N. 11., Nov. I'.—They call
J. C. Kennon of Lakeport the “Hellga
mite King.” because during the season
just ended he has culled just $5OOO
from the gentle profession of picking
hellgamites while the dew is still on
them.
There’s nothing profane about a hell-1
gamite. In fact, it is held saered bv I
the New Hampshire bass fishermen. It j
is a long, horrid-looking almost inde
structible bug that a bass will nat- j
ttrally erawl out of a brook to get anil ;
chase up a tree if necessary. Bass are!
addicted to hellgamites. the same as |
some people love whisky. And they I
are not plentiful. One has to kuow 1
their haunts and their habits. Keunon i
has wormed himself into the secrets o*
the hellgamite and has adopted the
early bird method of catching him.
Sometimes he gets a dollar for one ,
fat. pert-looking hellgamite. for a hell-1
gamite on the hook means a four pound .
bass in'the frying pan.
