AT WEDDING SUPPER.
ASSASSINATED BY BRIDE’S RE JECTED SUITOR. On* Charge from a Shotgun Kills Frank Walker and Ills Bride, Then the Murderer, Charles Rankin, Takes Ills Own Life. Frank Walker and his bride of a few hours were assassinated by Charles Rankin, a rejected suitor for the young woman’s hand, while they were feast ing and making merry at their wed ding supper at Montgomery, Mo., the other evening. A child sitting next to the couple was injured by the fatal •hot. Rankin fired the contents of a shotgun through a window opening from the dining room into the yard. He then committed suicide with the weapon which he had used with such terrible effect. It was well that the posse of men found Rankin dead. A more determined and angry crowd never gathered in that section. On the body of the suicide was a photograph of the woman he had slain and the fol lowing note: “Friends —You may think me strange, but it is all my fault that this has happened tonight. It is my own unworthiness that causes this rash act. With a. parting good-by to my friendi CHARLES RANKIN. I will close with a request that my brother Odd Fellows bury me by the x.-.tes of that sacred fraternity. GoOd by to all,and especially my home folks, for I expect I shall go to hell for this deed, as it makes two lives unhappy, and I will end this world of misery for us both.” Walker was a young and industrious farmer and Miss Maude Goshort, his bride, was the daughter of W. S. Go short, a prominent farmer living near Belleflower, a small town near Mont gomery. They came to Montgomery in the afternoon and were married at the Methodist parsonage by Rev. B. D. Sipple. They then returned to the home of Mr. Cook, an intimate friend of the groom, where they were tendered a reception. At the supper hour,while the wedding party was in progress, a shotgun was fired through the window of the dining room. The shot took ef fect in the heads of both Mr. Walker and his bride. Neither uttered a sound nor moved a muscle. Their hands dropped on their breasts and their bodies remained rigidly upright in their chairs until removed. Blood flowed in a stream from the head of the bride and filled her coffee cup before her body could be taken away. Neither regained consciousness. Both died al most immediately. Mr. Cook’s child was only slightly injured. Mr. Cook took his gun and Many of the more ignorant classes In East India hold that their sufferings and sickness come upon them be cause their deities are displeased with them. So, in order to propitiate these cruel deities, the relatives of the sick will visit the temple and by offerings try to appease their wrath. Bloody offerings are believed to be specially ploaslng to these deities. At certain festivals held in honor of the goddess Bhadra Kali, in Travan core, South India, the most strango and striking form which these sacri fices take is known as hookswinging. The devotees have iron hooks Inserted into the fleshy part of their backs, and arc then swung up in the air before the goddess. The Rev. Joshua Knowles, a representative of the London Mission ary society, witnessed several of these festivals, and the following is taken f/om his descriptions of them: " • • • The whole arrangement of the car was such that, by lowering one end of Jlhe long beam to the ground and fastening a man to it, and then pulling down the other end by the ropes, the man could be raised into the air a height of some forty feet or more. The whole car, with the man in the air, coaid then be dragged by the thick went in search of the assassin, but no trace of him conld be found. Soon aftei Cook returned .to the house the report of a shot was heard. It sounded as if it was a quarter of a mile away. Short ly afterward angry and excited farmers arrived and organized a posse. An other shot was heard, apparently com ing from near the gate, but in the ex citement of the moment no attention' was paid to it. As Bailey Ball, a neighbor, rode to the house his horse stumbled over a dark object which the man took to be a hog. Upon dismounting he discovered that it was the body of Charles F. Ran kin and that the whole top of his head was blown off. He had killed himself with cunning ingenuity. He removed the shoe and stocking from his left foot, tore the rim from his hat, -hooked one end over his great toe, fastened the other to the trigger of his shotgun, placed the muzzle of the gun to his forehead and pulled the trigger by moving his feet. Rankin was a former suiter of Mrs. Walker and it is surmised that he was actuated by his insane love and jeal ousy. After committing the murder he wandered away apparently unde cided as to where he should kill him self. Finally he returned to the scene of his crime. All of the victims came from prominent and highly respected families. SAW A DEVILFISH LEAP. The Sight Wan So Horrible lie Became Unconscious. When a youngster I was homeward bound from Santa Anna with a cargo of mahogany and when off Cape Cam peche was one calm afternoon leaning over the taffrall looking down into the blue profound on the watch for fish, writes a world-wide traveler in the Pittsburg Dispatch. A gloomy shade came over the bright water and up rose a fearful monster, some eighteen fee 1 across, and in a general outline more like a skate or ray than anything else all except the head. There, what ap peared to be two curling horns, about three feet apart, rose on each side ol the most horrible pair of eyes imagin able. A shark’s eyes as he turns side ways under your vessel’s counter and looks up to see if any one is coming are ghastly, green and cruel, but thi thing’s eyes were all this and much more. I felt that the Book of Revela tion was incomplete without him. and his gaze haunts me vet. Although quite sick and giddy at the sight ol such a bogey, I could not move unti: the awful thing suddenly waving wha! seemed like mighty wings soared up out of the water soundlessly to a height of about six feet, falling again with a tremendous splash that might have been heard for miles. I must have fainted with fright, for the next thing I was conscious of whs awakening un der the rough doctoring of my ship mates. Since then I have never seen one leap upward in the day time. At night, when there is no wind, the sonorous splash is constantly to be heard, although why they make that bat-like leap out of their proper ele ment is not easy to understand. It does not seem possible to believe suet’ awe-inspiring horrors capable of play ful gamboling. Unhappy Coincidence.

Soon followed the beating of tom-toins, the fcreeching of native flutes, tha shouts of the crowds. The canopied end of the long beam was now lowered. Th devotee lay prone on the ground below the end of the beam. The priests took hold of the flesh part of the man s back, squeezed up the flesh nd fast ened two iron hooks into it. A rudely fashioned native sword and shield were then given to the man. Then while the people shouted, the rope fastened to the other end of the long beam was pulled down and the man swung upward into the air, wav ing the sword and shield and making convulsive movements with his legs as If dancing in the air. With shouts and crieß, loud beating of tom-toms, and screaming flutes, the people took bold of the long cable ropes and strained and tugged till the car moved forward and around the temple. Some of the men wero suspended while the ear was dragged round three or foui times. I should think that from the time the hooks were put in till thej were taken out half un hour paused Finally the dovotee was lowered to the ground, the ropes unfastened and Iht hooks taken out of the flesh.” GREAT IS BELFAST. THE PREMIER CITY OP OLD IRELAND. It Dm #lt«, of the Ltrffost« Things ,of Their Kind In the World—The DlgffMt Shipyard and the Biggest Ship—Linen mnd Other Industries. Mr. W. J. Gordon takes aa the sub ject for one of his charming city sketches in the September number of the Leisure Hour the port of Belfast He frankly confesses that it is a much better place than he expected “in these day* of unscrupulous advertisement.” Belfast, standing on land mostly won from the water, and on a harbor which is artificial for miles, is “the largest and most progressive town in Ireland, numbering a third of a million inhabi tants, and extending and improving yearly.” Comparing it with other towns, Mr. Gordon says: “It Is in a better position, with better surround ings than most; it has no particularly brilliant architecture, but nothing con spicuously monotonous or bad; of churches or chapels it has a hundred and fifty, of which perhaps half a doz en are rememberable for thetr good features, but there Is no center, noth ing that dominates the crowd of spires and chimneys, which perhaps may be done by the city buildings now rising on the site of the old Linen hall. Its streets are wide and modern.” It be came a port in 1637, but its principal progress as a Seagate began with the making of the river eighty years ago. The harbor commissioners have now four miles of quays under their control, and receive yearly in dues £150,000. “Belfast,” says Mr. Gordon, “admires the large, and fortune has favored it." It claims to have the five biggest things of their kind in the world; the biggest shipyard which built the big gest ship, the biggest rope-work, the biggest linen factory, the biggest whis ky store and the biggest tobacco fac tory. The biggest shipyard belongs to Messrs. Harland and Wolff; the big gest ship is the Oceanic; the biggest rope-work is that which has the son of “Self-Help” Smith as its manager; the biggest factory, built by Mr. Mull holland, now belongs to the York Street Flax Spinning company. As a set-off to the biggest whisky store may be put the fact that Belfast is the chief seat of the manufacture of aerated J water in the united kingdom; and though it has the biggest tobacco fac tory, Belfast is, as Mr. Gordon’s pic tures show, by no means one of smokiest of towns. ON A CALIFORNIA RANCH. Women Work In Field* .Ju*t as They Do In the Old Country. It is quite widely believed that na ture responds so generously to man in California that very little labor need be expended to supply himself with many of the necessaries of life. This may be true to a certain extent, says the Minneapolis Journal, but when the necessary labor falls to women it ap pears of much greater proportions than when it is accomplished by men. Among the foreign tenant ranchers of the state the women work much harder than the men, for beside carrying on their household duties they toll in the field, in the garden and in the barn yard. Mrs. Ramas, whose husband rents one of the many Stanford ranches in Santa Clara county, is one of those who, living within sight of some of the largest educational institutions of the 6tate, has tolled for many years as do the peasant women of Europe. Dur ing this time she has not only kept her house and raised enough chickens to clothe her family, but has built fences, planted and dug potatoes and walked miles through the grain fields carrying and throwing out poisoned wheat to exterminate the squirrels that swarm in this section of the country. Her life has been no harder, however, than the lives of her Portuguese sisters, and no more entirely devoid of amusements or recreation. In appearance Mrs. Ra mas is prepossessing and intelligent, and while her face hardly bespeaks so much endurance. It shows will power and ambition. —Minneapolis Journal. Reward for Literary Work.

The letters patent of James I. authorized Stowe to collect the voluntary contributions of the people. The letters recite that, “Whereas, our loving subject, John Stowe (a very aged and worthy mem ber of our city of London), this five and forty years hath to his great charge, and with neglect of his ordi nary means of maintenance (for the general good, as well of posterity as of the present age), compiled and pub lished diverse necessury book and chronicles; and, therefore, we, in en couragement to the like, have in our royal inclination been pleased to grant our lotters patent under our great seal of England, dated March 8, 1603, there by authorizing him to collect amongst our loving subjects their voluntary contributions and kind gratuities.” John Stowe died on April 5, 1605, and was burled In tho parish church of St. Andrew Undershaft, where his monu ment, erected by his widow, is still to be seen.

A ten-minute prayer in a Pennsyl* vania court in a horse case created quite a sensation recently. Robert P. Thomas had brought suit to recover the part payment he had made on a horse. He bought the animal from Peter German of Heidelberg Township for $80; paid SSO on him, and the bal ance, S3O, was to be paid in sixty days. The horse was guaranteed sound. Later Thomas returned the horse and wanted his SSO, saying the horse was not as represented; that the animal “knuckled.” German denied this and refused to give back the money. Thomas then brought suit. The case came up before Judge Albright. Thom as took the stand, took the oath, and before answering the first question as to where he lived, turned to the learned Judge and asked whether he could offer prayer. "Certainly,” said Judge Albright, with a quiet nod, and while on the witness stand Thomas prayed aloud. "O Lord, Thou who rulest over all and art willing that all shall have Justice, we appeal to Thee, in this our trouble, to lend ear and give Thy presence. Guide us and all of us to tell the truth to this honor able court and to this jury that I bought that dark bay horse from Ger man for $80; that German said he was solid and sound; that I paid SSO on him; that the horse was not solid and sound, as represented, and that by right and justice this court and jury should compel German to give me my money back and receive his horse back again, as the horse is now just as I bought him. O Lord, we hold no grudge against German, and we don’t want him to have any enmity against us; but we want our money be cause we are entitled to it. Thou hast said that brethren should dwell together in unity, and it is our desire to do so, but we can’t do it if German doesn’t take his horse back and re turn my SSO. Soften his heart toward us; forgive our enemies; give me a safe deliverance in this trial, and bless this good democratic judge who has just been Indorsed by the solid re publican party of Lehigh county.” Thomas went on in his prayer for ten minutes, and at its conclusion the trial gravely proceeded. The jury pa tiently listened to all the evidence. The parties were farmers near Slating ton, but German deals in horses. The jury brought in a verdict for the de fendant, and apparently Thomas’ prayer had not been answered as he desired, German, the defendant, hav tataj shown that the horse was not "knuckled,” but was big-boned and sound, as represented—Green Bag. THEY KEEP SILENT. The Rale of Secrecy In the Royal Household. One of the many rules hedging those who cater to the wants and pleasures of royalty is that a strict secrecy shall be maintained as to the sayings and doings of their royal masters and mis tresses, says the New York Herald. Many a secret has gone to the grave untold owing to the conscientiousness of the hearer or seer, who, bound by the oath of office, would rather die than divulge what the world is ever on the qul vive to learn. It is said that when Miss Adeane, who is now Mrs. Mallett, was appointed maid of honor in the queen's household, she was visiting in a household where was a well-known man of letters and wit. "What a fine opportunity you will now have to keep an interesting diary,” he said to her. Miss Adeane responded that, according to the queen’s condi tions, no one was allowed to keep a diary when at court. But, disbeliev ing, the man laughingly responded, "I think I should keep a very secret one, all the same;” to which the future maid of honor courteously replied: "Then I am afraid you would not be a maid of honor.” The term "maid of honor” seems to have a wider signifi cance than is usually applied to it. It is to be net only a maid who is hon ored by her elevation to the member ship in the royal household, but it is to be a maid whose honor is used in defense cf her mistress by speech or silence, ns may be required. College Professors and Free Speech. Liberty of speech is so precious that congress is forbidden by the constitu tion to abridge it, and such urrests as are common in Germany for lese ma jeste are impossible here. There is danger, however, cf carrying this free dom too far. "I believe in free speech,” said the duke of Wellington, "but not on board a man-of-war,” and absti nence from ill-timed speech has given Gen. de Gullifet, the new war minister of France, the appropriate nickname of Lc Grand Muet. The trustees of the University of Chicago not long since considered the desirability of restrain ing its professors from "undue loquaci ty” about controverted public matters. While the decision was unequivocally against such restriction, the question raised deserves consideration, for the college as an institution has rights, as well as the teachers within its gates. The minister in his pulpit has a legal right to free speech; but when his opinions misrepresent the principles of his sect, he has other rights than his own to consider. When u professor’s pronounced statements are credited against the university of which he is a part, his liberty of speech is a moral wrong, which his manliness should condemn and his conscience restrain. "All thingß are lawful for me,” said St. Paul, "but all thingß are not expedi ent” Her Point of View. Enpeck—Saunders is a man of un usually sound judgment.

PROMINENT PHYSICIAN Has to say who has had 35 YEARS of aotlvo Praotieo of Modieinoi I have never before In my 35 years of practice of medicine given my testimonial or recommen dation to any patent medicine, but there is a remedy, the result of which has come under my own observation; for there is no Disease which has so baffled the medical skill of all ages as Rheuma tism and to find a Reliable remedy for the same. At last we have found it in "5 Drops," manu factured by the swanson Rheumatic Cure Company, Chicago, 111. The " 5 DROPS," has proven itself wonderful for its curative power in Rheumatism, not as a Temporary Reliever only, but to #give a Permanent Cure even in chronic cases. Sometime ago, I had among others several Rheumatic cases under my treatment and pre scribed for these patients the very best Remedies which I skillfully se lected, but without desirable results. I then heard of "5 DROPS' * and of its Wonderful Cures, and prescribed it to a few patients who found re lief from its use within a few days. After that I prescribed it to a great number and to my surprise, I will sav that in the course of Two or Three Weeks after they had used "5 DROPS" and "5 Drop" Plasters they were Cured. Among these were a few who had. for a number of years, been suffering with Chronic Rheumatism, who had piloted themselves around on Crutches. They came to ray office without Crutches and told me they were perfectly Well. They give all the credit to "5 DROPS" fTRAur-MAUKI an d to ”5 Drop” Plasters and this is their testimony to the Swanson 1 . J Rheumatic Cure Company for their kindness and for the conscientious way in which they are placing these Wonderful Remedies among suffering humanity, which they told me to write to the Company as an acknowledgement. As I have seen the Curative Power of "5 DROPS" and "5 Drop" Plasters, in a great many instances. I can Truly recommend them and also that the firm is perfectly honest and reliable to deal with. swanson’s C. A. JACKSON, Physician and Surgeon, Kearney.
