tFrom the Nashville, Tenn., Banner.1
Mr. John W. Thomas, Jr., of Theta, Tenn.,
is a man with a most interesting history. At
present he is interested in blooded horses for
which Maury County is famous.
"Few people, I take it," said Mr. Thomas
to a reporter who had asked him for the
story of his life, "have passed throughas re
markable a chain of eveht8 asl have and re
mained alivt d teli the story.
"It twte along in 1884, when I was working
in the silver mines of New Mexico, that my
troubles began; at first I suffered with in
digestion, and so acute did the pains be
come that I went to California formy health,
but the trip did me little good, and fully im
pressed with the idea that my last day had
nearly dawned upon me, I hurried back here
to my old home to die.
"From simple indigestion my malady de
l veloped into a chronic Inability to take any
substantial food;, Wit Barely able to creep
r about, and at f.nibs I was prostrated by
n spells of heart palpitation. This condition
continiied until one year ago.
"'On the 11th of April, 1893, I suddenly
collapsed, and for days I was unconscious,
t in fact I was not fully myself until July.
My condition on September 1st, was simply
horrible, I weighed but seventy pounds,
whereas my normal weight is 165 pounds.
All over my body there were lumps from
the size of a grape to the size of a walnut,
my fingers were cramped so thatI could not
more than half straighteii them. I had en
tirely lost control of my lower limbs and
my hand trembled so that Icould not drink
without spilling the liquid. Nothing would
remain on my stomach, and it seemed that
I mustdry up before many more days had
"I made another round of the physicians,
calling in one after the other, and by the
aid of morphine and other medicines they
gave me, I managed to live though barely
through the fall."
Here Mr. Thomas displayed his arms,
and just above the elbow of each there was
a large irregular skin as large as the palm
of the hand and of a purple color, the space
covered by the mark was sunken nearly to
the bone. "That," said Mr. Thomas, "is
what the doctors did by putting morphine
into me,
"On the 11th of December, 1893, just eight
months after I took permanently to bed-I
shall never forget the date-my cousin, Joe
Foster, of Carters' Creek, called on me and
gave me a box bf Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People, saying they had cured him
of partial paralysis, with which I knew he
had all but died. I follow ed his directions
and began taking the medicine, .as a result 1
I stand before you to-day the most surprised
man on earth. Look at my hand, it is as
steady as yours; my face has a healthy look
about it; I have been attending to my
duties for a month. Since I began taking
the pills I have gained 30 pounds, and I .m I
still gaining. All the knots have disap- I
ared from my body except this little I
kernel here in my pal. I have a good ap- s
petite and I am almost as strong as I ever
"Yesterday I rode thirty-seven miles on
horseback. I feel tired to-day but not sick.
I used to have from two to four spells of
at heart palpitation every night, since I began
r, the use of the pills I have had but four spells
"I know positively that I was cured by
T Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I believe firm
O ly that it is the most wonderful remedy in
existence to-day and every fact I have pre
sented to you is known to hny neighbors as
t well as to myself, and they will certify to
r, the truth of my remarkable cure."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
are not a patent medicine in the sense that
name implies. They were first compounded
as a prescription and used as suchin general
practice by an eminent physician. So great
was their efficacy that it was deemed wise
y to place them within the reach of all.
They are now manufactured by the Dr.
Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady,
N. Y., and are sold in boxes (never in loose
form by the dozen or hundred, and the
public are cautioned against numerous im
itations sold in this shape) at 50 cents a box
or six boxes for .2.50, and may be had of all
druggists or direct by mail from Dr. Wil
liams' Medicine Company.
S-The death of Teacle Wallis serves
- to recall that Baltimore was famous
for the first three-quarters of the pres
ent century as the home of beautiful
women and distinguished lawyers.
During most of that time the Baltimore
bar had always two or three men of
I1 national reputation. During these
later times the most famous of the Bal
timore lawyers have been well known
in Washington and further south, but
their fame has made no great impres
sion north of Mason and Dixon's line.
Mr. Wallis was about the last of a
group of distinguished Baltimore law
yers that included, among others, Bev
erdy Johnson and John V. L. MacMa
-It is, perhaps, not generally known
that petroleum can now be produced
artificially by a very cheap and simple
method, being the distillation in a
strong iron vessel, under a pressure of
25 atmospheres, of the animal fats and
oils at a temperature of 300 degrees to
400 degrees C. Under favorable condi
tions 70 per cent. of the fatty oil is
transformed into petroleum, which is
90 per cent. of the theoretical yield.
The product thus obtained has been
found to be in every particular identi
cal with natural petroleum. It is sug
gested that, with modifications of con
ditions in the process, oils of different
grades may be produced.-N. Y. Jour
nal of Commerce.
-All France is showing a great and
growing enthusiasm for Joan of Are,
the new patron saint. A splendid
statue of St. Joan is to be erected at
Vaucouleurs, and subscriptions toward
its cost have even been opened in every
regiment of the army. The awakening
of interest in the Maid of Orleans has
led to a queer and heated controversy,
still raging, between the supporters of 1
the church and the Freethinkers The
former claim Joan as all their own, I
while the latter retort with allusions
to the circumstances of her death. It
is true, however, that the memory of
Joan of Are is now venerated more
than ever before by all classes of the
French people.
-The engine which draws the t
freight cars along West street New c
York looks like a miner's cabin, being r
housed in from the rail level to the t
stack. Not seeing the wheels go
round, it is supposed the horses will
not be offended at it. As it and its
following train of cars move along the
crowded street it is preceded all the
way by a mounted courier, a young t
man on horseback waving a red a
flag. He looks as if he had something t
to do with a military operation. Y

has hot been lashed ahd churned for
hidnths as she wvas to-day by the fierce
wind that has been sweeping down
from the north for the past thirty-six
hours. Late to-night it is believed
that twelve or fifteen lives have been
lost along the shore off this city and
t its suburbs. The only other point re
porting loss of life is Milwaukee,where
six of the schooner Cummings' crew
Were diowned this afternoon before
they could be rescued by the life-saving
crew. Half a dozen schooners and
smaller craft have foundered off this
city during the day; a score or more
are dismantled and stove in, making
an almost hopeless fight against the
gale and the huge waves that every
few minutes sweep over them, endan
gering the lives of those who are still
on board. It has been a day of heroic
effort and great suffering for the life
saving crews scattered along the shore.
At least thirty vessels are anchored
outside the harbor waiting for the
storm to subside. All are more or less
damaged and the signals of distress
that have appeared among them from
time to time during the day have kept
the life-savers busy.
Twenty-five or thirty men have been
brought in, all exhausted and suffer
ing intensely from exposure and cold.
In several cases help arrived too late,
and a corpse was found among the
half-conscious sailors who, benumbed
by the cold and unable to protect them
aelves, were almost beaten to death by
the furious waves. At inidnight the
storm has not abated, and every hour
increases the peril of thosd onl board
the numerous vessels outside the har
bor, pulling at their anchors and in
imminent danger of being brought into
collision with each other or of being t
pounded to pieces on the beach.
Scenes of horror that chilled the
blood of thousands, of spectators were
enacted in the harbor for two miles be
low the Illinois Central depot in the
early evening. As the storm increased
in violence during the afternoon the
waves grew mountain high, dashing
over the breakwater, deluging the
tracks and enveloping the passing .
trains with torrents of spray. Out in
the harbor a dozen three-masted
schooners, heavily laden with lumber c
from Michigan, were riding at anchor.
A few minutes after 4 o'clock three of "
the number hoisted signals of dis
tress, and citizens on shore tele
phoned to the police and fire
departments as well as to the
life-saving station at Jackson
park. A few minutes later the three
masted Evening Star, of this city, tl
parted her chains and came for the
shore like a rocket. She struck the t
heavy piling of the breakwater and
her timbers crushed in as though they
. were egg shells. As the vessel struck
n the six sailors aboard jumped
i for their lives. Five landed on a
pile of scrap iron, going down on all
Y fours, but a sixth, a Norwegian named
1 Olson, missed land by a couple of feet
and went down into the waves. The
s cheers that had broken from thousands
0 of spectators turned into a groan as
e the man disappeared from view.
t Hardly had' the Star struck when
d there was a shout from the throng of
t excited on-lookers, and it was seen
e that another three-masted schooner
1. had parted her ropes and was coming
ashore. This was the Jack Thomp
son, also lumber-laden. She followed
a the path of the Star, and came helm
on on the previous unfortunate.
The shock precipitated into the
water the timber on the star
board side, and upon which the five
members of the crew were standing.
a Four of the them clung to a big plank,
s to which they held on like grim death
meanwhile yelling at the top of their
1 voices for help. The fifth man could
not be seen for a moment, but was
finally discovered hanging by one
f hand to a spar a couple of
hundred yards north. By this
time the lifeboat had arrived
from Jackson park, but it was evident
t that any attempt to launch it would
only result in its being crushed tc
pieces, and the crew turned their at
tention to the rescue of the men in the
water. Several unsuccessful efforts to
cast lines were made, but finally a
rocket was thrown across the raft and
caught by one of the sailors.
The throng held its breath as the
rope was slowly drawn in, for it
seemed as though every wave would
wash the unfortunates back into the
waters; but when the land was reached
and the benumbed men were helped
ashore the rescuers were rewarded by
a roar like a reverberation of artillery.
In the meantime the other member
of the crew had been washed into a
pier abutting Twenty-second street,
where he managed to cling to the pil
ing and was pulled up by some of the
Shortly after 0 o'clock the two
masted Murphy, lumber-laden, came
ashore within fifty yards of the

to land her crew had little difficulty in
jumping ashore. The waves swept
the decks of all three vessels clean
and within an hour the beach for a
couple of miles was strewn with lum

Intimidation Without Violence.

hundred striking coal miners from the t
McDonald district, with a brass band, d
arrived at the coke mine here at 2:30 r
o'clock this morning. Several shots t
were fired, but the deputies on guard t
did not return. When the sheriff and lI
deputies arrived they found the raid- .
ers lined up on both sides of the road. L
Nothing disorderly was done. The I
strikers succeeded in inducing twen- o
ty of the forty miners at work to t
come out. After threatening another o
raid if the remainder do not come out, 6
the strikers marched to the Supe mine. n

c The Pursuit of tile Murderers of the
Ig Me.ks I'amlily In Northern Missouri
at Seven Huundred Men Join the Chase,
Is Assisted by Bloodhounds, but the Efforts
r- of Both Have Iteen Baffled by the
AMySterldds Mot'eirnent ot tlie Fugitives.
LINNEUS, Mo., May i1.--Tiio past
ir seven days have been spent in a fruit
e less chase of William P. and George
n Taylor, wanted for the murder of the
Meeks family, near Browning, a week
dago last night.
Within twenty-four hours after the
commission of the crime 200 armed
d farmers were in pursuit of the fugi
tives, but so mysterious has been their
'e movements since their firdt flight that
v they htve been enabled to baffle not
e only the armed posses which have been
tracking them night and day, but even
the packs of bloodhounds have failed
to lead the pursuers to their hiding
e place.
They were first located on the farm
e occupied by a relhitive, but as it was in
v the night, the pursuers were afraid to
attempt a capture, knowing that the
1 very effort meant death for either the
c hunted men or their hunters.
They were next heard from at the
farm house of their father, James Tay
Slor, three and a half miles east of
The Taylors are armed with rifles
and revolvers, and have with them,
it is reliably stated, all the way from
$30,000 to $60,000, said to have been
taken from the Browning bank, of
which William was president, after the
murdei was committed.
The country covering a circle of
seventy-five miles has been patroled
for the past three days, the number
of armed searchers afoot and ni horse
back hating giown until it is esti
mated that fully 700 men are now in
pursuit of the two brothers.
A courier brought in a report Tues
day night that the Taylors were seen
going toward LaPlata, throuigh the
Chariton hills. They had deserted
their horses in order to be better able
to elude their pursuers.
The rewards offered for their cap
ture now amount to about $3,500.
While credible reports of the proba
ble whereabouts of the Taylors have
been received, there is a feeling among
officials in the county that false tips
have been given to the posses by the
friends of the Taylors to divert pursuit
from the right direction to enable the
fugitives to escape across the state line
into Iowa.
Whatever force there may be to this
claim, it is weakened by the report re- d
ceived' last night that the Taylors
were seen yesterday evening near
New BIoston, eighteen miles west of b
LaPlata, and that they are now hid in d
Macon county.
This morning a startling rumor was
current here to the effect that the fu
gitives were willing to surrender if
they were guaranteed protection from
the fury of the outraged farmers who
have been hunting them as though
they were wild beasts.
John Taylor, a brother, was here in
consultation with E. R. Stephens, who al
was attorney for the Taylors in all sl
their trials, and this fact is the foun- Ci
lation for the report that terms for w
their surrender were being effected.
Sheriff Barton has returned from his
hunt, and he said that detectives
would be employed at once, and the s'
homes of all persons supposed to be 't
protecting the Taylors closely guarded.
Yesterday's search developed the fact e
that the household goods with which si
the Meeks family were moving, have
been burned, it is believed, since the
Iscape of the Taylors.
Evidence of it was discovered in a ni
thicket near the Taylor residence. to
Portions of a bedtick and a remnant of
feathers were found in the ashes.
Sheriff Barton also showed this morn
ng the head of a doll and other trin- )O
kets which he took from the embers. if
The sheriff says he cannot tell lt
whether the Taylors have escaped e
from Linn county, but seems to believe ^e
they are still concealed in the dense
forest of northwestern Linn.
James Taylor, father of the boys, is
almost crazed with grief and threat
Sened to shoot any one who attempted
to search his house. The place has
since been searched, however.
t George M. Leonard, a brother-in-law
Sf W. P. Taylor, and a man of unim
peachable character, said he did not
loubt the guilt of the Taylors. He
said he had not seen them since the
murder, and was totally ignorant as to
their whereabouts. He said they came,
:luring his absence, to his house on the
night after the murder and called for
horses, and were refused them by his
Mt rs. W. P. Taylor was arrested near
Browning Monday, as she was sup
posed to be carrying money to her hus
Ex-Marshal Cornett, of this city,
with an army of men, is still hunting
the Taylors. More forces left here
again to-day.
The remaining friends of the Tay
lors are few, and orders for the arrest
jf persons supposed to be assisting
them have been issued.
In this case assistance will prove a
ldangerous business. Milan, Browning
and Linneus are in constant communi
-ation and interest is unabated.
Robert Gibson, whose implement
house William Taylor is accused of
having burned in Browning two years
ago, is here. He says the feeling in
Browning against them is growing
more intense as the enormity of the
crime becomes more fully realized.
he believes that lynching is certain in
ease of their arrest.
