Ibe uas Tbat Killed a fastor and a
Woman Accidentally Turned On.
Omaha, Nov. 8 The inquest over
the bodies of the Rev. Mr. Kabe and
Miss Augusta Bunch, who werefound
oVail in ewh other's arms in the
vestibule of theGerinanBpti8t
church, has revealed circumstances
that relate the direct cause of the
trnjmly. In the little vestibule is a
gas pipe upon which are two stops
within three inches of each other.
One supplied the light jet and the
other a pas stove. Since they are so
close together and the stops turn so
easily, the knuckles will turn ou the
latter when the former is turned off.
Deputies of the coroner experimented
with the stops several times and the
result was always the same. The
theory, therefore, is that the couple
turned out the light in order that
persons outside migbt not look into
the room, and in doing so, turned on
the other stop. As the two were ly
ing on the floor, they inhaled the
most deadly portion of gas which
seeks the floor and which kills iu a
short time, physicians testified.
Officer t'ullen, who broke in the
door and fwund the bodies, declined
to help remove them. He explained
his refusal, on the stund by stating
that ''he would not help remove peo
ple who had desecrated a place of
worship by an unholy act nnd who
had Iteen stricken l,v God in punish
ment." Among t!ie exhibits was a
nevspiij)or cupping louwi among t rie
belongings of the woman. It was
headed, "Holy Kiss Caus.es Discord."
It was dated from St. Puul and told
how a minister there had kissed a
woman of his congregation. The
husband brought chnrgea against
the miuister, who defended himself
was holy and fatherly." Miss liuseti

Rich Strike In Knox County.
ISarbourville, Ky., Nov. 2. Ken
tucky oil operators are greatly elat
ed over a fine strike made Saturday
on Richland Creek, iu Knox county.
What is regarded as the biggest well
ever drilled in Kentucky, witii tne
probable exception of the Ilamraons
gusher No. 1, came in on the Ryrley
lease, four miles from Rarbourvjlle.
The oil sand was penetrated only
five feet, but the oil gushed nearly
100 feet high, making an open gush
through the easing. "
When it had cleaned itself out it
was connected with a 250-barrel
tank which had betn hastily erected.
It waB connected at 5 in the after
noon and filled the tank by 8 the
next morning, losing about one
tifth of the production. It filled a
second tank in less time and is now
producing twenty barrels a.n hourby
actual gauge, an experienced gauger
making the test. There are only 1,-
000 barrels of tanktige on hand, and
this will be exhausted noon. The
grade of oil In n light grwu nnd the
sand was found at 340 feet.
Not far away is the Byrley well No
2, which makes forty barrels daily,
This well has not been drilled in yet.
It will be as good as the last one,

It was in July, 1828, that a stage
coach left an official letter at North
Lansing signed by John McLean,
John Quincy Adams' Postmaster
General, appointing Beardsley post
master. The salary was f 1 2 a year.
Mr. Beardsley had never applied for
the place. Years afterward be dis
covered that the recommendation
had been made by William Seward,
then a young politician at Auburn,
N. Y. Mr. Beardsley was only 19
years old and f 12 a year was not to
be laughed at in those days, so he
accepted tho offer and two years lat
er erected a frame and stone building
which he has occupied ever since.
Mr. Beardsley was one of the char
ter members of the board of directors
of the Tompkins County National
bank in thw city und has beeu a

"May you take this lesson home
with you, dear friends," concluded a
preacher at the end of a long and
wearisome sermon, "and may its
spiritual truth sink deep intoyour
hearts and lives to tbeend that your
soul may experience salvation. We
will bow onr beads in prayer. Dea
con White will lead." There was no
r -spouse. "Deacon White,'' this
time in a little louder voice, "will
you lead?" Still no response. Evi
dently the Deacon was slumbering.
The preacher made a third appeal
and raised his voice to a pitch that
succeeded in arousing the drowsy
man. "Deacon White, will you lead?"
The deacon in bewilderment, rubbed
his eyes and blurted: "Ob, go to

Finding Missouri Out.
Strnngc, but true people living in
adjoining states, Iowa for instance,
know nothing of irnjei'inl Missou
ri," having never visited us nnd only
havinir heard of us through papers
nine of which are published within
our borders and who appeal to t he
citizenship of our state for support)
that never lose an opportunity to
villify or malign us. The spokesman
of a party from Iowa arrived yester-
lay to look at our lands, and in con
versation with a citizen said: "Why,
am surprised at your state. Never
heard of anything good of you, etc.
Why, if a year ago anyone had ap
proached me with a business propo
sition from Missouri, no matter how
tiiw n jtprfiniiice, x tr na vc turiiKi
it down without investigation. We
topped off nt Kirksvilie and found
that so far above expectation, we
oncluded to run further down and
here we find evidence of thrift, civil-
zation and refinement, as good
hurches and schools as you find
anywhere. What's tho matter with
Missouri, anyway? Why, 1 wouldn't
be afraid to undertake to live in any
town I've seen."

cations would lay aside prejudice and
