New Orleans Grocer Black Hand Vic- S
tim-Police Find Weeping Girl
Over Dead Form of Father.
New Orleans, La.-Joseph Maanzel
la, an Italian proprietor of a saloon s
and grocery at St. Philip and ic(atl'r s
streets, fell a victim to the so-called p
"Black Hand Society" here Wednes- t
day, but his death was avenged a few a
seconds later, when his 17-year-old a
daughter shot and killed the assassin c
as he was attempting to escape. a
Mazella had recently received many ii
letters demanding money. They were s
signed "Black Hand Society." Short
ly before noon an Italian, apparently r
about 30 years of age, caled at the c
store and asked if any money was g
torthcoming. When orderd out, he r
shot Manzella in the breast. As Man- b
zella fell he drew his revolver and
fired at the assassin. but it has not c
been definitely established that the a
bullet found its marik. Young Jose- t
phine Manzella had -:'shed into the
store at the first shot, and, drawing a
her revolver, gave chase to the assas- i
sin, firing at him as she ran. i
When the police arrived, the girl
was bending over the dead body of f
her father, weeping. The dead body t
of his slayer lay in the gutter out- x
side with three bullet wounds near 1
the heart. c
The assassin was identified as Gul. a
seppe Spennazzio, who is said to have r
immigrated from Sicily recently. 1
Eight Indictments Against Cotton Men
Set Aside.
New York.-Indictments against 9
eight prominent cotton operators for
alleged conspiracy in restraint of
trade, found by the federal grand jury
last month, were dismissed.
Ex-Senator Spooner, counsel for the
bull leaders in cotton, had the indict- 4
ments declared defective and set
aside as a result of pleas of abate
ment, filed on July 5, each of thi de
fendants separately, claiming that the
indictments were not valid, on the
ground that the grand jury was not
legally convoked.
The federal grand jury which in
dicted Patten and the rest is push
ing its inquiry deeper into the sitlu
ation in the other old crop months,
July and August.
It is learned that sixty subpopenas I
have been issued for cotton brokers,
mill men and others, who may throw
light on the corner. Brown and Hayne:
apparently are running the campaign
in those positions without the co
operation of Patten, whose great for
tune .helped the bull leaders take over
340,000 bales on May contract, the
largest quantity ever tendered in one
month and valued at about $25,000.
Reports of the grand jury's plans
tend to restrict trading in cotton. So
far only about 45,000 bales have been
tendered on July contract and the July
deal as compared with that in May
has been unimportant.

System of Fleecing Bank.
Louisville, Ky.-Admission that the
i shortage of August Rlopke, defaulting I
r secretary of the Fidelity Trust Conm
I pany, is very large was made at the
trust company offices late Tuesday
v afternoon. At the same time it 'as
i announced that the directors of the
1 company have pledged themselves to
an increase of $1,000,000 in the cap.
r ital stock if such increase is neces
a sary.
Ropke's shortage is placed by cur
Srent rumor at about $530,I,,0. His
e case was set for hearing before the
s grand jury October 5 and the prisoner
a returned to jail, in default of $2b,000
1 Although no statement could be se.
t cred on this point, it is said the pec.
e ulations began between ten and fif
teen years ago.
e The system emp;oyed by Ropke is
also as yet unexplained, although it
- is generally suipposed .he manipulated
indivdiual accounts.
1 It is also said he had authority
f from several depositors to check on
y their accounts, subject to the super.
t- vision of the trust company officials.
r A report was current Tuesday that he
checked on these accounts for large
I. amounts and intercepted the cheeks
e upon their return from the clearing
house, so that the officials of the
company would not see the checks.
He is said to have used the money
for his own account, and to have made
entries in the ledger to offset the
n amount taken.
The last statement of the Fidelity
t Trust Company showed a reserve and
r sinking fund, in round numbers, of
f $1,300,000. The capital .stock is $1,
y 000,000 par, and Monday sold on the

- Gulf Coast Swarming With Insect
New Orleans, La.-T.he entire Gulf
coast of Louisiana and Mississippi is
s uffering from a plague of mosquitoes.
Mlllions of the pests are swarming
over that region, making life almost
unbearable to inhabitants. Many New
Orleans families who went to the coast
to spend the summer have returned tl
to this city and will spend the re
mainder of the season at home. ani
mals are being driven frantic by the
Smosquitoes and in some localities the
horses and mules are dying.
a Wild animals in the swamps of the
rivers and bayous have been forced to
flee mnany mles id an effort to outrun
the mosquitoes and in some instances
S deer have gone into the cities and
towns in their flight from the winged
r. pests. In the southwestern part of
Louisiana several large saw mile and
he factories have closed down because
10 ther employes have refused to stand
e the torture of fighting mosquitoes and
et trying to work at the same time. t

She Lives In Bingvllle.
A south Missouri paper is carrying
this ad.: "Attractive woman, not a day
over thirty, would be pleased to corre
spond with eligible man. Not abso
lutely necessary that he should be
young. Would prefer one with prop
erty, but one with a good paying posi
tion would be satisfactory. The young
lady is of medium height, has brown
hair and gray eyes, not fat, although,
most decidedly, she is not skinny.
Her friends say she is a fine looking
woman. Object matrimony. Reason
for this advertisement, the young
woman lives in a little dinky town,
where the best catches are the boys
behind the counters in the dry goods
and clothing stores, and every one of
them is spoken for by the time he
is out of his short pants. Address
Hazel Eyes, Box 23, Bingville, Mo."

Col. I1. N. Itenouf, at the "01
Guard" banquet at I)elmonico's, em
phasized the importance to an army
of a good commissariat.
"You have perhaps heard," he said,
"of the company of privates that a
patriotic lady entertained one Me
morial day to dinner.
"It was a good dinner, and at its
end a pretty maid servant entered
with a superb dessert.
"'Dess.rt, sergeant?' she said to
the stalwart young soldier at the
head of the table.
"'Desert?' the sergeant answered.
'When I can get eats like this for
nothin'? Nixie! Not me!'"
'"I thought you told me you had
something original in this libretto,"
said the manager, scornfully. "HIero
at the very outset you have a lot of
merry villagers singing, 'We are hap
py and gayl'
"You don't catch the idea at all,"
replied the poet, wearily. "The 'g' is
soft. It should be pronounced 'happy
and jay.'

Regarding the Morning Cup.
"Oh how hard it was to part with
coffee, but the continued trouble with
constipation and belching was such
that I finally brought myself to leave
it off.
"Then the question was, what should
we use for the morning drink? Tea
was worse for us than coffee; choco
late and cocoa were soon tired of;
milk was not liked very well, and hot
water we could not endure.
"About two years ago we struck
upon Postum and have never been
without it since.
"We have seven children. Our baby
now eighteen months old would not
take milk, so we tried Postum and
found she liked it and it agreed with
her perfectly. She is today, and has
been, one of the healthiest babies in
the State.
"I use about two-thirds Postum and
one-third milk and a teaspoon of sugar,
and put it into her bottle. If you could
have seen her eyes sparkle and hear
her say "good" today when I gave it
to her, you would believe me that
she likes it.
"If I was matron of an infants'
home, every child would be raised on
Postum. Many of my friends say,
'You are looking so well!' I reply, 'I
am well: I drink Postum. I have no
more trouble with constipation, and
know that I owe my good health to
God and Postum.'
"I am writing this letter because I
want to tell you how much good
Postum has done us, but if you knew
how I shrink from publicity, you
would not publish this letter, at least
not over my name."
