If it is shown that corporations have
contributed money in this manner it is

manner would be seriously question i

fat so located that no matter how

slender figure and fat women are
simply not tolerated either in business
or social affairs Women may not
know it but men when they see a fat
woman pass them on the street make
all manner of sympathetic remarks
about her They do not mean to be
unkind or to seem unmanly but it is
natural for a man to dislike fat on a
woman Where fat shovs the most

Fort Madison la July 28 Before
the expiration of another day John
Junkm the negro who on the night
of February 5 1909 brutally murder
ed and then robbed Miss Clara Rosen
a handsome choir singer at Ottumwaj
in this state will have expiated his
crime upon the gallows The scaf
fold recently erected at the peniten
tiary is waiting for the doomed man
and the preparations for the execu
tion which have kept Sheriff John G
Clark of Appanoose county busy for
many days are completed in every
With the approach of the time for
his execution the condemned murder
er has become extremely nervous and
the prison guards who have kept the
death watch over the prisoner for
several weeks have doubled their vig
ilance fearing that Junkin almost in
sane from fright over the approaching
ordeal would attempt to commit sui
cide at the last moment rather than
undergo the legal penalty upon the
The attitude of the negro murderer
has undergone a remarkable change
since the time when he was first tak
en to the penitentiary to protect him
from being lynched After hs fear of
the lynchers had worn ff Junkin dis
played a bravado which thoroughly
disgusted the prison officials He
seemed to feel great satisfaction over
his importance and notoriety and did
not even lose his assurance when he
was found guilty of murder and sen
tenced to death But as the time for
his execution approached his dread
of the terrible ordeal made him a
craven sullen and whining man as his
moods changed Never for a moment
did he give the slightest evidence of
remorse for his brutual crime or of
sympathy for the victim and her fam
The crime for which Junkin will
pay the legal penalty upon the gal
lows tomorrow was one of the most
heinous in the criminal annals of this
state The > oung and handsome vic
tim Miss Clara Rosen was returning
from choir practice on the n ght of
February 5 of last year when she was
waj laid by Junkin In a deserted lo
cality The negro choked the girl to
prevent her from crying for help beat
her brains out with a rock and then
robbed her of her earrings and fnger
rings He was caught a short time
after the murder when he tried to
pawn the rings The unusual brutal
ity of theerhne had aroused the most
intense feeling among the citizens of
Ottumwa and when it became known
that the shij er of the girl had been ap
prehended the citizens gathered with
tho intention of lynching the murder
er Only with the greatest difficulty
did the authorties succeed in thwart
ing the plans of the incensedcitizens
and Insmuggling Junkin out of the
city and bringing hm by special train
to Fort Madison yhere he was kept
safe at the penitentiary
The execution of Junkin tomorrow
will be the second legal hang ng of a
negro In this state In twentyfive
j ears The last negro who paid tht
death penalty upon the scaffold In
this state was Joe Smith a negro
from Buxton who was hanged April
20 190G for the murder of his Bweet
heart It is a remarkable coincidence
that Judge M A Roberts who passed
judgment on Junkin also presided at
the trial of Smith
There was a great demand for per
mits to witness the hanging of Jun
kin but Sheriff Clark was compelled
to lefuse the requests of a majority
of the applicants Among those who
received tickets of admission are the
father and two brothers of the victim
the aged mothe r of the condemned
murderer six sheriffs three of the
jurors who pronounced Junkm guilty
of murder four of the special guards
