Brutally Attacks His Wife.

sistance and is Thrown Down Stairs.
A Hob Collect to Lynch Illin bat Ho It
Rescued by tho Police Later tho
I'rlsouor Breaks Loose anil Jumps '
Into tho River and Is Drowned.
Cleveland, O.. Sept. 28. Just before
dark Sunday night Edward Wald, a
ship carpenter residing' at G'J Mulberry
street, narrowly escaped lynching at
tho hands of an infuriated mob of west
side citizens. Wald came home under
the Influence of liquor, quarreled with
his wife and finally struck hor.
The 14-year-old bon, Edward,
seized his father's arm $ and
entreated him to quiet down, whero
upon tho brute became enraged and
threw tho boy down Urn stairway lead
ing to the street, a distance of 20 feet.
Tho little fellow screunjed for help and
rolled out of tho open doorway into
the street, writhing in convulsions.
jDr. C A. Turner was summoned to at
tend tho boy, and a crowd quickly col
lected to revengo tho brutal outrage.
Father McHalo was hastened to the
scene and administered tho last rites
of his church to tho dying boy. Mean
while tho crowd increased to a mob,
which was goaded into fury by tho
sight of tho helpless child struggling
on tho pavement until the clamor
'forrevengeswelled to an ominous roar.
An impromptu delegation of 40 forced
'their way into tho house todrag out tho
Inhuman father, and others were dis
patched for a rope. Wald had locked
himself in a bedroom. The door was
broken open and tho bruto dragged in
,to tho street, fighting desperately.
Tho police arrived before tho rope ap
peared and thus intercepted a lynch
ing. Tho mob gave battle to tho po
lice, determined not to allow Wald to
cscapo them. During tho scrimmage
the prisoner broke looso from those
who were holding him and ran down
an alloy toward the river.
, The mob was. closo at his heels and
when the fugitive reached tho river,
knowing that his chance for life was
far less than even if captured, plunged
into the cold, muddy waters of tho
Cuyahoga and was drowned. Ills body
has not been recovered. The boy will
,dlo and tho wife's Injuries may also
prove fatal.

How's This For
Some dealers are always trying to see how little they can give for
money. WE are always trying to see HOW MUCH we can give;
not because .w're any better than they, but because if pays us.
PAYS US, mind you. It pays us because it brings new customers
and pleases our old ones. So you see our reason is a selfish one.

11c Many Unfortunates Carrled"0(r
by Fever Missionaries Assisting.
Philadelphia, Sept. 23. Among tho
passengers on tho steamer Waesland,
from Liverpool, wore six colored peo
ple who were overjoyed at finding
themselves again In the United States.
They were Taylor Smith, of Forest
City, Ark., his wife and two children
and two friends, and thoy all had a
sad story to toll of tho want, misery
and hunger buffered by the Negro col
onists who sailed from Savannah in
tho Laurada last March to try their
fortunes in the Black republic of Li
beria. From the day they landed at Mon
rovia, Mr. Smith said, until their de
parture they were unable to get an
hours's work of any kind.
Twenty-five acres of ground were
given them by the Libcrian govern
ment, but thero were no houses to
shelter them or their families.
Soon after their arrival tho rainy
season began, and with it came a ma
larial fever called by the natives "John
Hull Fever" which carried away 40 of
the newcomers among whom was ouc
of Mr. Smith's children.
Tho disease was still doing its dead
ly work when he left for the United
Mr. Smith stated that nearly one
half of the 202 persons taken to Mon
rovia on tho Iforsa, which left Savan
nah some time before the Laurada,
were dead and baried long ago. Luck
ily for him ho took with him SS00,
which enabled him to return home.
When he left, old friends half naked
and crippled by disease hobbled out
into tho surf to bid him what they all
felt would bo a last farewell.
President Chee'scman, of Liberia, and
the missionaries did all they could for
the unfortunates, but the returned col
onists said, like everybody else, they
had very little money, no food and" no
work for them.

two of them residents of this city, have
