WAS A DESPERATE DEED.
;Tbe Killing of Two Outlaws in Okla
homa.
thrie, Ok., Not. 8 -W. D. Foe-
sett.Ynited States marshal, said Tes-
that the killing of the out
laws, "Bert" Casey and Edward '
-Simms, by "Fred" Hudson andF
ILLnckett, near Geo Springs last
Monday was one of the most desper
ate encounters he knew of in his ex
perience in running down criminals.
For six weeks Hudson and Luckett
had been traveling with them as sup
posed members of their gang. A
plan was laid to trap Casey and
Bimms by taking them to Cleo
Springs to rob a bank.
The party camped in a pasture
three miles from there last Saturday.
"Casey sent Hudson to Cleo Springs
to look over the ground. Hudson
told Luckett that on Monday morn
ing they would cook breakfast, wash
the jAsltes and then Bit down ly the
aifp-flre to oil their pistols, Hudson
osite Casey and Luckett opposite
mnis. When Hudson nodded bis
aead i
to Luckett each was to "cover
his man." The plan worked without
a hitch. When . Hudson "covered"
Casey he said: "Throw up your
hands, Casey, and don't go after your
gun, or I'll kill you, for I have the
drop on you."
Casey reached for his pistol and
Hudson fired, the bullet striking
Casey in the chest. Casey fired and
missed Hudson, who then fired three
more bullets into Casey's chest.
While dying Casey struggled to get
aim, but fired his pistol in the air.
Luckett was slower in "covering"
Simms, who drew his pistol and fired
once, winsing his man, after which
his pistol failed to work. Luckett
shot Simms four times.
A farmer who had gone to the pun-
ure to look after his cattle, witness-
the fight. The firing wns at such
cloV range that the faces of the out
were powder burned.
- Had the bank robbery scheme fail
ed, the outluws were to bo led into a
trap by attempting to liberate their
partner, George Moran, now in jail
at Lawton, and on rial for ttie mur
der of Jay BeembloBsotn in a holdup
near Hush Springs in August, 1D01.
Luckett and Hudson were released
from the federal jail here about two
months ago on bond. Luckett is
charged with "bootlegging" in
Woodscounty and Hudson with rob
bing a postofiice near Weatherford.
They are said to have known Casey
tor a year or two. Their original
plan was to capture him alive, but
both Casey and Simms were con
stantly armed, even when eating, and
night Casey went away from the
mn anil alpnt nlnnn T.nrkpt t and
iy r r-
' Hudson decided that the only way to
get the outlaws was to kill them and
this was done.

How He Woo the Prince's Favor.
From th Sew York Tlmei.
The crown prince of Siam, while he
bas a right royal impression of his
own dignity, is not without a sense
f humor. He has a fluentcommand
m i i m i: 1 J
ily in that language when he wishes
toKoeo, but until. his visit to this
eity no one suspected that he was an
expert in its Idioms. In passing it
maybe said that one of the most
cherished decorations the king of
Siam can bestow is the Order of 4he
White Elephant.
While in New York the prince was
the recipient of much attention from
a certain city official who had been
forgotten when Kaiser Wilhelm dis
tributed ribbons, crosses and jewelry
in return for the entertainment of his
brother, Prince Heinrich. The offi
cial hoped to so impress the Siamese
visitor that a decoration from the
guest's kingly father would be forth
comine. That there might be no
jfctake the official approached a
,' aember of the prince's suite and did
dome broad hinting. The hints were
conveyed to the prince, whose only
comment .was:
"Mr. is a nice man. I like him.
. I like him too well in fact, to leave
him with a white elephant on his
hands." .- ,

Monster Fossil Frog Bones.
Norman, Ok., Nov. 8. H. W.
Menke, of the Field Columbian
Museum, Chicago, is in Oklahoma
collecting foeeile. A few years a so,
near Orlando, many fossil bones were
found. They were small backbones,
leg bones and a few skulls and teeth.
Most of these specimens were sent to j
Doctor S. W. Williston. of the Kan-;
eas I'uiversity for identification.. He;
prououuced them exceedingly rare.
Doctor Wiltiston last year went to
Chicago to accept a position in the '
Field Columbian Museum. He sent;
Mr. Menke to Oklahoma, where he
has collected a number of these bones.
Speaking of the animals to which the
bones belonged, Mr. Menke said they
probably were members of the class
known as amphibians, or possibly a
few of them were primitive reptiles.
The amphibians constitute the class
of animals now represented by frogs,
tonds and salamanders. Theextlnct
bones were much larger, however,
than those of amphibians now living.
If one can imagine a frog as big as
an ox he will have some idea of the
appearance of those prehistoric uiou
sters that once flourished in Okla
homa. For all fresh cuts or wounds, either
ou the human subject or on animals,
Bullard's Snow Liniment vis excel
lent; while for corn-hunkers' sprained
wrists, barbed-wire cuts and sores
on working horses, it cannot be too
highly commended. Trice, 25 and

Ben Franklin's Statement
Macon, Mo., Nov. 8. There is a
world of consolation in the proclama
tion issued by County Central Com
mitted Chairman Ben Franklin to
the Democrats today. Ordinarily
Macon Comity goes Democratic all
tho way from 500 to 1,000. Tues
day she careened a bit, and Itepubli
caus slipped into five important of
fices. Mr. Frnuklin's tnauifesto
reads:
"Whom the Lord loveth hechus
tenth. That was true when the
world wns young and equally so to
day. Just about the time we con
clude thut the world and the fullness
thereof is ours by divine right some
thing happens. This occurred Tues
day. We will let that pass. The
future is bright with promise for the
Democratic party in State and na
tion. We will just pick up our old
flintlocks and try 'em again, and,
my word for it, if we all do our duty
at the next election the Lord will be
gin to love the other fellows some,
and the chastening they so greatly
need will be rigorously administer
ed." Self Protection

Mysterious Death of a Girl.
Graham, aged 16 years, a well known
young woman of El Paso, was found
dead to-day in the foothills on the
Mexico side of the Rio Grande. It is
not known whether she committed
suicide or was murdered.
Several months ago she became in
volved in a love affair with a young
man of New Mexico. Her father,
who objected to the young man's
gallantries, was found a few days lat
er tied to the rails of the Southern
Pacific tracks. He was discovered
and released. The girl's sweetheart
is now charged in the New Mexico
courts with tying her father to the.
rails.
Miss Graham's death makes the
affair a deeper mystery.
Accidentally Killed Himself.

Chamberlain, a well-known horse
man and stockman, who, until three
years ago resided near Smithton,,
Pettis county, 'accidentally shot and

RUSSIA TO EXPORT MEATS.
Plaa lader Way te Establish Rr-alar
Lilt mt Cald-Stprae Strutrrl
la Eaarlaa.
Russia has fully decided to attempt
to export meat to England, and live
stock, if desired. At a conference on
the subject at Moscow the assistant
minister of finance, M. Kavalevsky,
declared the government was pre
pared to assist financially In launchd
tug this branch of export trade. A
government official will probably be
manager of the export syndicate.
Slaughter-houses at Libau, on the
Baltic, and a regular line of cold,
storage steamers to England are
among the prerequisites. M. Kavalea
sky hopes a market can be found for
80,000 head of cattle, or one-tenth of
the present annual production, in
European Russia and 26,000 tona of
pork, besides fowl. The ships and
slaughter-house will cost $900,000, it
is estimated, of which the govern
ment will probably advance $.MM),00O.
The Siberian butter export trade
has already been successfully
launched, cold-storage butter trnins
being forwarded ahead of ordinary
freight to ltiga, where cold-storage
steamers load for England. Up to
the present time cattle mixing has
been greatly neglected in Kussiii. It
remains to be seen whether the poor
quality of beef now produced will
find a profitable market In England.
SEEKS HEIR TO LARGE ESTATE
Invalid Shoemaker la Ireland Waats

Constat.
John Smith, an Invalid shoemnker
living in Ilullinislau county, Ireland,
haa written the Chicago police, ask
ing them to search for his miming
sister, Margaret Smith O'Neill. The
sister Is tho next heir to a large
estate of a deceased brother, Ed
ward Smith. The estate la in Ireland,
and in the hands of the liritish gov
ernment. In the letter Smith ex
plained that he had applied to the
government for possession of the
land, but was informed that he could
not claim it until he showed proof
that his sister consented to the trans
fer or that she is not living. He said
that the sister left Ireland some time
ago, and had been at the home of an
uncle, W. McDowd, at 341 Hoy tie ave
nue, Chicago.
A number of years ago Private Ed
ward Smith, of the First battalion.
Connaught rangers, died, leaving an
estate to hia sister, Margaret Smith
O'Xeill. The sister hnci then left for
the United States. "John Smith, the
brother, said that he wished to get
possession of the estate because he
is an invalid, has no money and will
soon be forced to give up work.
AN ANGLO-AMERICAN CLUB.
London to Have Society Called the
MPllKrlma" to Promote Interna
tional Good Fellowship.
London is soon to have another
Anglo-American club, but on entirely
different lines from the Anglo-American
club which has beenalked about,
cables' the London correspondent of
the Herald.
Well-known men of America and the
ng44ah eaptte 1 are to meet at the
Carlton hotel on Friday to discuss the
plans, and from the interest displayed
it seems most probable that the mat
ter will be carried through.
The object of the club which prob
ably will be called the Pilgrims is to
promote international good fellow
ship. The qualifications for member
ship are public service, literary or
artistic achievement, journalistic
work, extensive travel and frequent
travel across the Atlantic. It will be
conducted somewhat along the lines
of the Gridiron club, at Washington.
Headquarters will be established in
New York and London.
In England it is proposed to have
one American memuer to three Eng
lishmen, and In America the inverse
ratio. The membership fees are to be
small.

Ellen M. Stone, the missionary held
captive by Bulgarian brigands so
many months, and who wm finally
ransomed by money subscribed la the
United States, was one of the speak
ers at the sessions of the Luther
league at St. Paul.
Miss Stone asserted that she owed
her deliverance to prayer, and said
that prayers of the world did more
in securing her freedom than the
money paid to her captors. She said:
"I am a proof to this Luther league
of God's faithfulness In answering
prayer. We received the world's
benediction of prayer, which did more
than the thousands of dollars, the
price with which we were bought. I
bring you good news from Macedonia,
where in Bamako and Samapo there
Is great tenderness of heart and in
clination towards Christ as a fruit of
the barbarism of the brigands."

Tramps have "been pressed Into
service as harvesters in the section
of Kansas about Wichita. Fifty or
more -of ther'hobo,L fraternity-were
captured by irate farmers near Pratt,
and all day long they were forced to
run binders and carry bundles by
armed guards. The strange part of
the proceeding was that the guards
were women. The deficiency of farm
hands in l'ratt county alone was
2,000, while the state waa short about
10,000 men.
David V. Ulnlne, the harvest hand
Importer, had arranged for all the
men for Pratt county. The men, how
ever, were captured by farmers along
the line.
Late at night a freight train west

Dr. Oustave W. Lehman, analytical
chemist of the health department, an
nounced the other day that locusts
are good to eat; good in the sense that
they contain a considerable amount of
nourishment. "I have been making
analysis of the locust," laid the chem
ist, "and I find that the insect ha
properties that recommend it as an
article of food for those who like that
kind of diet. Personally, I cannot say
that I have ever tasted it, nor have I
any ambition to do so, but this does
not prevent me recommending it to
others as nourishment for those who
relish dishes of this character."

There is talk of erecting st th en

the island in New York bay. Funds,
however, have not been forthcoming
and now it is reported that one of the
principal advocate of the project ha
written to Lord Rosebery suggesting
that a contribution from the 3,000,

the consolidation of the English
speaking people" might be legitimate
