A crazy man who claimed to be fleeing from officers from Kentucky died at a farmhouse a mile south of the city, where he had taken refuge from his imaginary pursuers. His name could not he developed. The coroner's jury ren dered substantially that sort of a verdict. STheodore Bier., who was employed at May f er's beer-garden. wars found (lead in bed at r his home.

The offense Me for which Moore met hiede&th is the alleged col rape of a young white girl named Mamie er. Little, who arrived in Macon Saturday af- 31 ternoon on the Savannah train. A:cording me to her story, which she told with tears in on her eyes, while in the waiting room of the the depot she was introduced to Moore as one sha who was well acquainted with the city, and who might find her a boarding,'house by a lady whose acquaintance she had made only a few minutes b;" ,rc Moore came into the waiting toom. iodIb placed her in a hack and carried her to the house of Jane Hendrick. in a questionable quarter of the city. The girlsuspected Moore'sintentions. and while he was absent drinking, told her story to the woman. When Moore entered the woman offered to protect the girl, when he drew his pistoland with the vilest oaths swore he would kill them both if they did not submit to him. Moore afterward took us Miss Little. crying lustily, to the house of di Sarah Robinson, another disreputable e character on Cherry street, and there in a li most brutal manner accomplished his pur- ie pose. He was subsequently arrested in a , state of beastly intoxication, and ledged th In jail. ni When the case wasinvestigated before the ly the recorder Monday morning and the hor- cu rible facts fully developed, the indignation m, of the community knew no bounds.

When the fact became known this morn- J1 ing it created a great sensation. The town is still excited over the affair. at GI PLUGGED WITH A BULLET.

S Disastrous Storbam at Chicago. g I; A severe wind storm, saceompanied by Storrents of rain and a brilliant display of I Selectricity, broke over thl city of Chicago e Tuesday morning.

An can NOT THIS TIME. rn shn The Opportunity to Pay Vex.co What " She Deserves is Lost. _il A Washington dispatch to the Poet Dis- Ha patch under date of Aug. 14 says: The sit- hut uation in the Mexican troubles was yester- ma day materially changed, which means a sen, settlement in some form with a basis for of diplomatic action in the future. The Cabi- ed net hail a longer session than usual. There was little if anythingconnidered. other than the pending controversy over the inprieorn ment ofl'utting. Thequestion was thoroug;h ly and conservativeiy considered and dis cussed fromn every conceivable point. The I most important question. however, was the Mo proposition received Wednesday evening oce late through the mails, from MinisterJack- the son, at the City of Mexico, conveying to the Thi State Department a plan for the adjust- ant ment of the affair as proposed by the Mexi- twi can Government. In brief it is this: The ant Mexican Government has all the time claim- ber ed that it had done nothing in the premises ins which was not warranted and in harmony tur with the spirit of the law and expressed Nel statutes of the Republic. That there may ligt be nothing left undone to ascertain the law ver of the case and that the respective govern- a th ments may not proceed further without ex) having the laws of the two nations bearing gal upon the case fully and satisfactorily weigh- put ed and considered, the Mexican Government w Las made to this country, through Minister wh Jacksou. the proposition that if the State nol Department will send to the City of Mexico sio an able lawyer as a special envoy of this lea Government to confer with Attorney-Gen eral of the Mexican Republic as to the pro per interpretation of the law under which Cutting is held, they believe an amicable so lution to the problem can be arrived at. In the official communication of Minister Jackson particular stress is laid upon the Br belief that the State Department has not Ks properly constructed and read the law, at At the same time exlressedl the belief that sal when this Government has by one of its vie most able and distinguished lawyers made we a thorough investigation of the law and ex- ce isting statutes, it will t, willing to concede vie to, the Mexican Gover.:ment the right to en, hold Cutting for the offetse with which he is at chlargeld. After two hours' discussion of po thls snbject by the tCabinet, it was unani- ba nmously agreed that the prolosition froam ca the Mexican Government be accepted and ne a representative sent to the Pity of Mexico we Ia soonaspossible. This Government is to th be bound by thereport that the representa- Mi tive may make. It is asked that this pre- cu caution first be taken before progressing p1 further in the matter and upon this report pel there can be established additionalfounda- ph tion forfurt herdiplomat ic procedure. Pend- t i ing this agreement, neither government will wi tak. any action, though each will Ibe held $j responsible for the conduct of its citizens upon the border, wnere excitement is run ning high. It is not improbable that both governments will masstroops upon the bor der for the purpose of preserving order dur ing the period employed inth -consultation. Hon. Arthur Sedgwick of New York City its will be made Special Envoy to Mexico. Mr. to Sedgwick was agreed upon this morning by co the President and Secretary Bayard.

Tlght shoes ;ayen an a ('ause fr Corns. tuniaton, and HIow They Are Treated. Chiropodistet have of late years be come necrUsarv to residents of cities. s ays a writer in The Brooklyn Eagle. It is but recently that the art has been taught in the medical colleges. Unlike dentistry the student is not obliged to, pass an examination in anatomy. h-t can simply bring his mind exelusiviel to bear on learning to treat and care ror the feet. Formerly Brooklynites were compelfed to patronize New York chiropodists or else attend to their own pedalextremities. Within a few past ears. however, a dozen or more indi v.duals who'rade a speciality of wrest ling with hard-shelled corns, or allevi ating the sufferings of those who have big or little bunions. have sign tied their readiness to attend to the feet of suferin residents. I called recently at the ofce of a local chiropodist and found him busily engaged in compound ing a mixture which he guarantees to cure all manner of diseases of the feewt. He said: •One of the chief causes of corms, bunions. etc., is tight shoes. The ma jority of my customers are ladies Corns come in two varieties-soft and hard. The soft 'corn is formeJ by the acid perspiration of the feet, and first appears in the shape of a white blister. whose edges easily peel off. Lad:e* who wear shoes large enough for them seldom, if ever suffer with corn. Stumpy or short shoes cause corns to form easily. I have frequently known cases where a soft corn would affict the whole foot and ankle. I have many patients who have corns whicn have festered into the bone. Bunions are often mistaken for hard corns. A bun ion forms, usually. on the side of the foot or betwee the toes. A bunion is nothing more or less than a strained joint caused by a short or narrow shoe. French heeled boots and shoes have been the cause of untold misery to ladies, and I have naticed. since the common-sense shoe has become fash ionable, the wearers of them have had fewer corns. Narrow dancing-pumps are also very injurious to the feet. Op erations on fibrous and nerve corns are extremely difficult." "-At what age does a corn begin to grow?" "I have known children whose moth ers would insist upon having them wear tight shoes to have corns at the age of 3 years. Many children have ingrowing nails and are suffering from corns." Talking about manicures, my Infor mant said: "Manicure is a new innovation and is now practiced by all chiropodists. The most expert manicures are young girls. L who have been thoroughly drilled in Sthe business. It is now the custom to engage young women to do this work. and the paring and beautifying of nails is usually performed amid elegant sur roundings. In New York many fash ionable young men have their nails polished twice a week." T The doctor with whom I talked ex plained the methods used in treating bunaions, which may be of service to Brooklynites who perform their own ch:ropothy. First, the bunion is soft eaed with a camel's hair brush to destroy soreness, and then the hard callous is removed by means of a dou s ble-edged knife. At this point in the operation the fibers of the bunion ire , killed and a large ring of lamb's wool " applied. From appearances it would denote that the covering of lamb's d wool would make it impossible to get on the shoe. The latter, however. a easily lips on and the patient walks , with pmparative freedom. Double-edged knives and scissors. s large and small, are used by i. chirepodists in their work. S"1 have extracted twenty-ere corns I from both feet of one lady," continued my informant. "Large shoes have the same effect as small ones. One to be perfectly free from coras must wear a neat-ftting shoe. which must be neither too large nor too small. Ingrowing nails are difficult to treat. and are al waye accompanied by fungas growth t or proul flesh. Large or big toes at often have ingrowing nails. Disase re of the sweat-glands or perspiring feet. -e which emit an acsd smell can be cured. but tibe treatment most be both nlaternal n and local. The disease aknown a Ssweat-glands or;ginates in a disordered Ssystep, or in weak and diseased funao - tions, In the disease mentioed great e care should be uoed in the style of the hose worn. Only the cheap lines of hosiery have seams on the sides. These should be avoided and only socks worn which have seams in the bottom." e sometbIr for tI Angel-teom.
