CANADA. BOLD HIGHWAYMEN OFFICER STOTKO SHOT THROUGH THE NECK -FATAL WOUND. Spokane, Wash., April 4, 8 a.m.- "Let him lie there; he's dead!" \\ ith such a comment the yegg men who shot and perhaps fatally wounded Police Officer H. A. Stotko went back to their work on the big safe in the office of Shinn & Co., on the corner of Post and Railroad avenue. Officer Stotko passed the office of Shinn & Co. early this morning on his way from work. It was still dark. As he passed the office he was shot without warning. Aft-* shooting him the robbers dragged him from the side walk where he fell back among the boxcars on the track and left him for dead. They robbbed him of his gun and took his star off his coat and pinned it on the leg of his trousers. The wounded man lay between the tracks over half an hour after he was shot. He could hear the robbers at their work in the room near him, but was unable to move. He heard them fire the shot which tore off the outer door of the safe, and later heard them leave. Merchants' Police De Wlof found SStotko about 4:30. He was on his last round, and as he passed Shinn's ware house he heard someone groan. He asked who was there. "It's Stotko," said the officei. "What's the matter?" "I'm shot." Stotko was taken at once to the po lice station. It was found that he was shot through the neck, the bullet en tering the left side of the neck and penetrating the right shoulder. Stot ko's body was paralyzed, but he was still able to talk. He was taken to the Sacred Heart hospital, where he was examined by Dr. Gray. After the ex amination Dr. Gray held out little hope for his recovery. The safe blowing was very similar to that at the Broadway pharmacy a short time ago. The knobs were pounded off with tools stolen from the new Hazel wood building and nitro glycerine used. Three bales of hay were brought up from the cellar and piled about the safe to deaden the sound. The men did not have time after opening the outer doors to blow open the inner ones. There was very little money in the safe, but a large number of checks and negotiable paper. The robbers left a horn snuff box as a souvenir. The wounded officer has been on the police force since November 20, 1899. Previous to that he was in the em ploy of the Washington Water Power company. He is a married man and lives with hisw ife at 1623 Eleventh avenue. Sergeant Hollaway said this morning that Stotko is a man of ex emplary habits and one of the most reliable men on the foqpe. He could not understand how the robbers knew how he was an officei, as he was wearing a black stiff hat and had on his overcoat when shot. The sentry on guard evidently saw Stotko before he had a chance to move. Mayor Boyd this morning offered a reward of $500 for the arrest of the men who shot the officer, or for in formation that will lead to their arrest and conviction. Later Report. Policeman Henrv A. Stotko, who was brutally shot down in cold blood by unknown safecrackers, died at 8:15 Tuesday night. His wife was with him at the time of his death, and was at the bedside during the 16 long hours intervening between the time the man received the wound and the hour of his death. WASHINGTON NOTES.

Mrs. Mable Bradford, 13 Church street, Burlington, Yt., Secretary Whittier Oratorio Society, writes: "Peruna is certainly a wonderful medicine for the ills of women. I have heard it spoken of in the highest praise by many, and certainly my ex perience is well worthy of a good word. "I began to have severe pains across my back about a year ago, brought on by a cold, and each subsequent month brought me pain and distress. "Your remedy was presented, and the way il acted upen my system was almost too good to be true. I certainly have regained my health and strength, and I no longer suffer periodical pains and extreme lassitude." —Mable Bradford.
