SLEUTH JAILED THE BORGIAS WHO WILL BE SHOT IN MEXICO ALMOST BECOMES THIRD VIC TIM O FPLOTS TO SWINDLE INSURANCE COMPANY — DEATH SENTENCE FOR AM ERICANS AT CHIHUAHUA. EL PASO. Texas. Dec. 5. — In deoii remarkable is the detective story behind the conviction of C. T. Richardson. Wm. Mason and Dr. Frank Harie, who are to be shot for murder at Chihuahua, Mex. They are charged with poisoning two fellow Americans on whose lives they collected $25.""0 from the New York Life Insurance com pany. The claims had loen been paid when the company's solicitor gen eral discovered both had been at tested by the same doctor, al though one death had occurred in Texas, and that one check had come back with Richardson's in dorsement on it. By this time Richardson had moved to El Paso. A detective named Gray was sent there with his whole family and posed as a lumber buyer. One day Richard eon, who is really Leslie C. Hul burt, an attorney, who ran a "di vorce mill" and who left Rochester N. V., under an indictment for forgery, spoke to Gray's little daughter, and a close acquaintance ship with the detective sprang up. Hulburt suggested a scheme to beat the Insurance rompany out of $60,000, he claiming to have had experience. Gray sent to New •York for John H. Evans, a former detective, incurably ill of consump tion and Bright's disease, to pose as his brother in law. Wm. Mitch ell, a pal of Hulburt, was substi tuted in the medical examination and Evans was accepted as a risk. This trick precipitated the arrest of Hulburt, Mitchell and the detec tive, who was still posing as one of the gang A detective working on the outside says the gang was already plotting to kill Gray In prison Mitchell chanced to discov- WOMAN MAKES SALOONS HER GOSPEL MISSIONS PATRRSON, N. J, Doc 5. — Among the social outcasts and the lowest of bar room frequent ers the sweet voi?e of a beautiful woman is nightly being raised in songs of praise. Mrs. Wm. Asher, sitting before her small organ, in some back room of a low den, has recalled better days to the listeners. Night after night she has asked these so called "bums" to Join her in sing ing. They have done so, and de> clared themselves stronger and better men and women for the hymn. "The whole thought In holding saloon meetings ls that we go to these poor creatures and do not Walt for them to come to us," said Mrs. Asher, In telling of it. "To be sure, the churches are ready to receive them, but when men and women get pretty well down a thing has to be more than ready for them. They need to be sought out, made to feel that you are really and truly their friend. "After Mr. Asher has gained the permission to hold a meeting In a saloon, the next thing Is to get an ABSOLUTE SECURITY Genuine CARTER'S LITTLE LIVER PILLS must bear *Ac-simile Signature of tHe, TOUCH the Otnuin* Wrapper Printed on »EO PAPER BLACK LETTERS book tot tne Slcuatur* or Gray was a detective and for , name of Richardson he secured the two months feigned to be in a trance to escape punishment. He was fed with milk through a tube in the nose. He baffled efforts to expose him with needles in the skin and by plunging him suddenly into oold water. But he finally betray ed himself when he became howl ing drunk on whisky mixed with the milk. Dr. Harle, who had certified to both deaths In the fraudulent poli cies, was enticed to Texas from Mexico and also arrested. When "sweated" he revealed enough to make the detectives certain of con victing the gang in Mexico, whith er the whole crowd was extradited. There the case was fought for three years by the accused and this story developed: When Hurlburt skipped from Rochester he took with him a for mer stenographer, Helen Mitchell, as his second wife.

"In no way are these temper ance meetings. It would be poor courtesy on our part to gain ad mission to a saloon keeper's place of business and then condemn his occupation Ours are gospel meet ings, pure and simple." The utmost respect and grateful attention has been given Mr. Ash er and his wife since the starting of these saloon revivals. Not a drink is sold during their presence in the bar room, and, indeed, few of the frequenters ask to be served. It is no unusual thing for the bar to be cleared of its bottles and glasses before Mrs. Asher enters, and on more than one occasion the counter Is shielded with a great white cloth. The organ upon which Mrs. Asher plays folds into a small bun dle, and as it weighs less than 25 pounds it is easily taken from one bar room to the next. It was pre sented to her by the saloon keepers of St. Paul. Beautify your complexion with Where are you sick? Headache, foul tongue, no appetite, lack en ergy, pain in your stomach, consti pation?
