BROUGHT TO CITY TO AVOID LYNCHING Henry Gilbert,a Negro From DeVail’s Bluff, Brought To Little Rock. Little Rock, July 12.—To avoid lynching, a deputy sheriff of Prairie county, brought to the county jail here yesterday after noon, Henry Gilbert, whom he informed the jail officials that he came near reaching death at the hands of a mob. The officer re fused to tell the county jailer anything of the crime supposed to have been committed by Gil bert, other than he was accused of entering the store conducted by Mrs. Ed Williams at DeVall’s Bluff and made an attempt to commit a criminal assault upon the woman. The negro dodged me omcers ior two aays ana two nights before he was located in his house Saturday night, and as the sheriff and his deputies went to make the arrest, he appeared with a double barreled shot gun loaded with buck shot, which he dropped when the sheriff poked a revolver under his nose. The negro was then taken to the de pot, where such a crowd gather ed and so many threats were made, it was thought best to get him out of the way, the sheriff taking tne negro around the back way and then driving to Hazen, where a train was taken to Lit tle Rock yesterday morning. Gilbert will be held in jail here until it is considered safe to take him bask to DeVail’s Bluff for trial. The negro claims he made no attempt to commit any crime, and only went in the store of Mrs. Williams to settle a bill he owed her, she contending it was 95 cents, and he claiming it was 55cent8, a quarrell resulting which caused him to leave. He claims to have been around De Vall’s Bluff all the time the officers were looking for him, and was never armed. He admits, however, that the mob looked dangerous to him and is glad he was brought to the Little Rock. BARGAINS IN REAL ESTATE. One five room cottage with bam, garden, etc, new. Cost $850.

Young lady in a waiting room to a young gentleman who is try ing to entertain her: “George, did you ever see the Katskill Mountains?" ‘.No but I've seen them kill rats." THE “MERRY WIDOW" NAT. “I would like to see the bud ding and the blooming of the trees, I would like to watch the birdlets as they float down the breeze, I would like to see the sunlight on the knolls and on the flats, fut the girls obstruct my vision, with their merry wid ow hats. When a girl would cross a doorway, people view her with alarm, for she has to go in sideways, with her head beneath her arm. When two maidens take a ramble, one on either side the street, they are widely sepa rated, but their merry hats will meet. Ah! the sorrow of this husband who would kiss his only own, for he has to do his kissing by long distance. In the church the mer ry women with their merry wid ow tiles, drive their melancholy husbands to the middle of the aisle, in the home of weeping father seeks the celler’s quiet gloom, for upstair the merry widow headgear takes up all the room, there he’s joined by neigh bors who unite in crying "rats” when the conversion touches on those merry widow hats.
