- • VOLUME V. NEWPORT, ARKANSAS. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, J905. NUMBER t&i. PARAGOULD WOMAN SHOT. Boys Using Target Rifle fatally Shot A Woman Who Was Passing on a Nearby Street. Mrs. Atkins, a prominent lady of Paragouid, was accidently killed Tuesday while passing along one of the principal streets. Two boys were in a warehouse shooting a 2^-caliber rifle for practice, and were trying to cut a string in two, when one of the balls penetrated the wall and struck the lady in the temple, causing almost instant death. The ''boys, unaware of what they had done, continued to shoot for about thirty minutes before they were stopped and in formed of what had happened. As only one rifle was being used by the boys and each took turn in shooting, it would of course be impossible to tell which was the unfortunate one, and in a sense both would be respon sible. It is a singular coincidence that a son of this lady was killed a few years ago in precisely the same manner. TWO CHILDREN LOST. Two Children Under Seven Lost in Hills of independence County. No Trace found. Two children of Mr. and Mrs. I Walter Sharp, of Wolf Bayou, ia Knf cnv ' years of age, Pandered away .. from their home last Tuesday afternoon, says the Batesville Guard, and up to noon today no trace had been found of them, notwithstanding the surround ing country was scoured by par ties of j^eighbors during the en tire night and all this forenoon in an effort to find the missing ... children. The two children went to a spring near their home Tuesday after water. When they did not return at the proper time their parents went to investigate the cause of their absence, and not finding them gave the alarm and their neighbors immediately en tered upon a search, which had proved fruitless up to noon to day* If the children are found alive it is feared that serious results may follow the exposure and fright they have suffered. Addis Bryan Sentenced. Texarkana, Nov. 22.—In the United States district court yes terday Addis Bryan, a former deputy United States marshal, a close blood relation of William Jennings JBryan oi iveorasKa, pleaded guilty to an indictment returned by the last grand jury charging him with obstructing another deputy named Bush in t$ie discharge of his duty last ^ winter. ' Bush had arrested a man on a charge of illicit distilling or moonshining and was en route 1 with him to the Firt Smith jail when Bryan is alleged to have interfered on the train, taking Bush's pistol from him and striking him with it on the head. Judge Rogers imposed a fine of $100 and a sentence of three months in jail, but ordered the last part of the sentence sus pended on payment of the fine. Piggott Suffers $20,000 fire. Piggott, Nov. 22:—Piggott suf fered from her first fire of any seriousness yesterday between 10 and 12 o’clock. The fire broke out in T. J. Julian’s baker shop and spread rapidly north and south, burning the City barber shop on the south and the Bon Ton restaurant and Boyle & Co. ’s grocery store on the north. The buildings were all frame. The loss is estimated at from fif teen to twenty thousand dollars. The town would have been wiped completely off the map had the fire occurred in the night in stead of the day. Heroic work by the citizens of the town and the visitors present saved the large store of Bertig Bros, from burning. Practically no insurance was carried by the occupants of the several buildings burned, but a great deal of their wares were saved. Burglar Mitsed Poisoned Cake. Hot Springs, Nov. 22.—John Marberry, although a prisoner in the county jail, a confessed burglar, is rejoicing. He is glad that he wasn’t caught by the latest novelty in burglar traps, and expresses his satisfaction that the constables got him in the conventional manner. If Marberry had fallen a vic tim of the trap laid *by a farmer whom he had thrice robbed he would have been dead, whereas j he now only stands a good chance j of going to the pen. 1 J. N. Mooney, a farmer, whose house had been burglarized three ; times, noticing that the burglar in each instance took something to eat, placed a poisoned cake on a table before his family left the house. That very night Marber ry made a third entrance to the ! house and got away with val uables. He never noticed the cake, but helped himself from the pantry as usual. He was arrested yesterday and con fessed. j 5 IN SOCIETY, j CREIGHTON DANCE. One of the most pleasant so | cial events of the week was the ! dance at the Creighton hotel !

A young man named Rutlege, the son of Jack Rutledge, who resides near Salado, was stabbed in the side by John Franklin last Saturday, in a fight at Fowler’s mill, resulting from a previous difficulty in which John Franklin and Bob Hill, with whom Frank lin worked, had engaged with Jack Rutledge, in the field of the latter, says the Batesville Guard. The trial of John Franklin is set for November 30, at Salado. Franklin bears a bad reputation, and now owes a balance on a fine assessed against him in the Circuit Court.

On last Saturday the ends of the White River road of the Iron Mountain were only a mile ai d a half apart, but it will be some weeks' before t he first train is run through. Two bridges ju.-k west of the Omaha tunnel are still unfinished, and, while the work is being rushed, there is no certainty as to the day on which the last spike will be driven, but it will be sometime in December. It was thought a month ago that the line could be connected up in time for the op ening at Cotter today. The two bridges mentioned will require some of the hardest work on the line, that over Bar ren Fork being 700 feet in length, including the approach es. It was thought that the two bridges would be finished before the Turkey creek bridge east of the Omaha tunnel, and , working on that theory all the material for the track from the tunnel to Turkey creek was sent to the lower end of the line, and the result has been that* the mater ial now has to be hauled back through St. Louis to Carthage, over a thousand miles, to a point less than six miles from its starting point in order to work from Turkey creek to the Oma ha tunnel. It seems settled that Cotter will'be the division point of the White river road, and a large force of men are at work laying off the yards. The stakes are set for the turntable and round house, one steam shovel is on the ground, and a gang of 200 laborers is on its way up the line to start on the work. H. C. Townsend, general pas senger agent of the Missouri Pacific system, was one of a number of distinguished passen gers on No. 4 Wednesday. The general passenger agents of all the southwestern members of the Gould system of roads have been in conference on this trip as to the operation of a palatial | special train from St. Louis to Mexico City twice a week. The ! new train, which is to be speedy ! as well as beautiful, will make | its first trip January 16. Penn-Wyoming Copper is ad vancing.
