E. .Bliss, Jr., a member of the contracting firm of ISlWs & AlSrecht, paper rulers, was cu,ite3 from head to foot of hardened tar and la under the treatment of several physicians. Henry C. Cole, Charles Marthisoti and James L. White, prominent as brokers and business men. who admit applying the tar and regret they did not make a better Job of it, were ar retted after news of the affair came out through one of Bliss' physicians. The three men were released on $500 bond to appear in police court. A statement given out by E. F. Col lady, attorney for the three men who gave Bliss a drubing and then tarred him, declares that recently Bliss met Mr. and Mrs. Marthison at a social function and was later entertained at their home. Bliss subsequently be came acquainted with Henry C. Cole and his wife, who live near the Mar thisons. Claimed to Bo a Hypnotist. At these two homes Bliss was a fre quent visitor. He is about 35 years of age, suave, ' handsome, a fine con versationallst and boasts of his pow ers as a hypnotist. He often was en tertained at dinner parties and really got the lion's share of feminine ad' miration. On several occasions Bliss and Mrs. Marthison have been seen together at the theater and other public places. Marthison on Wednesday saw them together, and a quarrel with his wife followed. Mrs. Marthison said she Tiad been under Bliss' rypnotlc influence for gome time and was unable to control herself when he was near. She said she got instructions from him by men tal telepathy. Husband Sets a Trap. Bliss called Mrs. Marthison over the telephone. Mrs. Marthison talk ed over the phone with her husband, near by, offering suggestions. He told her to have Bliss call at their COFFEE Schilling's Best is a business-like name; you know what it means; and it means what you want Yew frxr returai rr Mur If Amt Mk it: wt par kirn. home, about 9 o'clock and enter through the basement. Mrs .Marthison met Bliss at the door and was fondly embraced by him. Marthison, Cole and White were secreted in another part of the base ment listening. They heard Bliss ask If, any one was at home, and Mrs. Marthison said no. Then he made several suggestions as to how to spend the evening. The three husbands sprang upon Bliss and frightened him into trem bling and pleading for mercy. A sound threshing was administer ed first to iillss, and later the bucket of tar, which had lieen carefully warmed for the occasion, was brought forth. Bliss was stripped and every square inch of his body was covered. His face was fairly bathed in tfie tar, ome rf ti petting In his eyes. After their task was well done the, husbands turned Bliss loose and he fled across town in search"1 of a physi cian. In the effort to remove the tar from the victim's face, most of the skin was pulled off, and rather than disfigure him the physician wlil al low the tar to wear away. Bliss talked reluctantly about the affair, but will be compelled to tell his story in police court today. White, who is a retired business man, acted merely as a friend of Mar thlson and as a witness. MADMAN SPAHES INVALID. Farm land SliooUt Farmer and House keeper Then Commit Suicide. Chicago, Aug. 11. A . tragedy In which one person Is dead and two dy ing, occurred at Blackberry Center, a small village 15 miles from Aurora, 111., at 4 o'clock this morning, and will leave a blind woman 90 years old as the sole survivor of the household of J. A. Morrill, a wealthy farmer. The probable fatal shooting of Mor rill, a man well known for his char ity, was followed swiftly by the at tempted murder of Mrs. Mary Bal colm. After the shooting the assail ant, John Larson, a farm hand, com pelled the wounded couple to sit in chairs for hours while he held a shot, gun. Then, with a Jest, Larson blew out his brains. Blind Woman Tells of Tragedy. The story of the tragedy was told by Mr. Morrill's aged mother, totally blind, whose life was spared by the whim of the madman. When the fi nal explosion, followed by a fresh scent of gunpowder and blood, told hor thit Larson was no more a men ace, she groped for a quarter of n mile along the country road to the iH'arest dwelling, where she fainted after gasping out her awful message. After Larson had placed his bleed ing and nearly unconscious victims In two chairs, his murderous mood seerm erl to change to one of pity. He be gan to bind their wounds with hand kerchiefs. He heard a rustling at the door and on turning he saw that It was Morrill's feeble old mother. "I won't kill you, old lady," he said, with a peculiar effort at courtesy. "Sit down and make yourself at home. I'm going fo watch over these two here. Tiny need guarding." Tlrt' blind woman took a chair mear that of her wounded son. She realiz ed only dimly what had happened, and her son. still conscious, dared not talk to her. Larson, too, seated him self, with the gun across his knee. He said nothing to his victims, merely muttering to himself. Thus four long hours were dragged out, the wounded pair groaning feebly at times. At the end of the fourth hour Larson said, "Well, nobody is coming to shoot me, after all. I be lieve I will shoot myself."
