PUN.SHED FOR LYNCHING. Man Who Adjusted Rope Gets Ten Years' Imprisonment. Carthage, Mo., June 6. Samuel Mitchell, white, who led the mob that lynched Thomas Gilyard, colored, at Joplin recently, was yesterday sen tenced to ten years' imprisonment in the penitentiary. Gilyard had killed a policeman who was trying to arrest, him. Mitchell was charged with climbing the telegraph pole and ad justing the rope with which Gilyard was hanged. Ed Field and John Barnes are yet to be tried for their part in the burning of negro houses following the lynching. Traces of Wreck Found. Sydney, N. S. W., June 6.A life boat and buoy, on which were painted the words "Tropic. Stockholm." have been picked up at Port Stevens. They are supposed to have jeen part of the Swedish bark Tropic which sailed from San Francisco March 17 for Melbourne. According to a dispatch from Lis bon, the leading wheat importefs there have formed a trust whereby all the milling interests in Portugal axe. ^amalgamated. Young Men Have Better Opportuni ties in the Country. It is popular fallacy with young America that, the salesman, clerk and bookkeeper occupy a higher place in the social scheme than the farmer or mechanic. One of the de plorable consequences is seen when ever a merchant or manufacturer ad vertises for help of this kind and the applicants turn out by scores and hun dreds to get the place ready to work at almost any price. It would be found on investigation that most of these had come up from the country and smaller towns to "accept posi tions" attracted by the promise of easy life at large salaries in the city. Nine, in ten have no special "training or ability and if thrown out of a place are as helpless as babies. The sala ries which looked so large from the"!eause-'the--- country prove in the stress of city life to be mere pittances. Friendships, even acquaintances, are impossible. At best the life is slavery, at worst ltfj is starvation. A LITTLE TOO REALISTIC. Musical Conductor Compelled to "Call Down" Strenuous Singers. No man has a better opportunity for the use of sarcasm than a musical conductor, and in this respect few per sons excel T. E. Morgan, who is training the New York estival cho rus for the production of "Elijah," Mendelssohn's masterwork. In one portion of the oratorio occurs the line "The earth was shaken," which is supposed to be sung very softly. Mr. Morgan was shocked to'observe that the passage started off and ended on" the "shaken" with a blast which near ly sheok U)o house,. He called a halt. "You shake too loud," he said. "I told you that the passage should be sung softly, lt isn't necessary really to si(--ke tne earth, you know."New York Press. Suicides in European Armies. Statistics of suicide in Austro-Hun garian army tell a dark story. Even among the civilian population of that empire the percentage of suicide is high1.C3 per 10,000 inhabitants, as against 0.76 in England, though still lower than Germany, whose percent age is 2.71. Austrian army suicides, however, are equal to those of any three other European armies put to gether. England's army of free men does not weary of its own existence. The percentage 2.06 per 10,000, while in the Austrian army it rises^ to 12.53, even double that of the Ger-P man nrmy, which may be described as a bad second with a rate of 6.33. Give Up Bicycle Manufacturing. Owing to the remarkable decline of bicycles in popularity and demand the Remington Arms company, one of the largest producers in New York, has discontinued manufacturing them. A quantity of special machinery has accordingly been consigned to the scrap heap. CAREER OF "BUFFALO JONES." President's Guide Not Considered a Caring Plainsman. The telegrams recited the other day that President Roosevelt had put him self under the guidance of "Buffalo Jones" on entering the Yellowstone park. Every time "Buffalo Jones" is mentioned the people on the western border of Kansas are inclined to laugh. As a dt.ring plainsman Jones is a good deal of an impostor. He went to western Kansas as late a3 1874 with the homesteaders. He had been a nurseryman in Doniphan coun ty. His life was spent in pursuing the desperate apple tree grub, and his exploits against the rabbits were many. Alter reaching western Kan sas he got some little notoriety by going out and catching a few buffalo calves, attracting attention only he- b-uft'ate--had- become- nearly extinct. Catching buffalo calves, by the way, was a sport among the plains children like gathering johnny-jump ups is among their Eastern fellows. Kansas City Journal. SHOULD BE MORE SUNDAYS. Little Girl's Good Idea of What We Owe to God. Of the childhood of Cathleen Neil son, who has just become the bride of Reginald C. Vanderbilt, an amus ing story has recently been told. The little girl was extremely re ligious and devout. She took a pro found joy in talking about the good ness of God. Once she said to her mother: "I think that God is too kind to give us six days for our own use and only keep one for himself. 1 think this should be changed. I wish that every one in the world would pray to God and tell him that it is not fair for him to deprive himself so. There iS( no reason why he shouldn't have just as many days as we." Tickled Queen Elizabeth. There is an amusing story of a car ter who went to Windsor three times to move a portion of Queen Eliza beth's wardrobe, only to be told each time that her majesty had changed her mind. When this information was imparted to him the third time, after a long wait in the courtyard, the poor man clapped his hands in wrath and' despair and cried out: ''Now I know that the queen is a woman, as well as my wife!" Elizabeth, at her window, happened to overhear this significant observation, and it hit her Tudor sense of humor.. "What villain is this?" asked she, and straightway sent him out a substantial present of gold. Bad Proofreading. Is there such a thing as, literary perfection? Dr. Henry Van Dyke an nounces that he has found five gram matical errors in the original West* minster confession, "including a split infinitive and a singular verb to a plural subject." Wi Dealer In REA ESTAT E 38,000 acres of good land for sale Correspondence Solicited BEMIDJI, MIN N Jane Hadlng's Eyes. It is said that Mme. Jane Hading has the loveliest eyes in the world. They are of the clearest and purest brown, like that of mountain brooks or wave-washed onyx, and veiled wita a thick fringe of black and silky lashes. When touring in Turkey, Mr. Hading learned of the national cus tom of lengthening the elliptical space between the upper and lower lids by slitting the outer canthus about a tenth of au inch and stretch ing the lids as the wound heals, and afterward decided to try it on his little girl. The result has made Jane Hading's optics famous. Electric Light in Ancient Palaces. Kaiser Wilhelm has concluded to modernize some of his old family castles by putting in electric lights, up-to-date heating and sanitary gp"pii ances and "elevators". Tire abseneeof these conveniences has hitherto caused great discomfort and the Ger man emperor will nrnke the improve ments first in the Berlin and Pots dam palaces, in spite of the protests of a lot of antiquarians in his court. When the works now in progress are finished the emneror.'s palaces will have all the modern improvements on the American plan. Mrs. Morgan Not FashionaDle. Mrs. J. Pierpont Morgan was "the cynosure of all eyes" at the recent election of the Colonial Dames at New York. Contrary to the expectations of those who did not know her it was found that che dresses simply and her cloth gown looked rusty. Her black hat was small and shapeless and a thick veil covered her face. The decision of the women who saw her was embraced in tho word "frumpy." Mrs. Morgan's disposition is exceed ingly retiring and whenever she ap pears in public she seems ill at ease. Senatorial "Sportsmen." David Bennett Hill used to be a confirmed baseball "rooter" when he was in the United States senate. Sen ator Spooner of Wisconsin is simi larly afiictedor gifted. He and Mrs. Spooner attended a game in Washing ton recently and when the home nine won in the tenth inning the Wiscon sin statesman discarded aH senato rial dignity and yelled with the best of them. He acknowledged with pride that he is fond of the national game, and he likes a horse race, too, but he never bets. Man Walks Many Miles. It is safe to say that every man walks two miles a day, if only in stirring about his room or office. If a man lives to be thirty years old he will walk 21,900 miles. The man wno beiieves in a daily constitutional of five miles will walk 54,750 miles. The circumference of the earth is 24,899 miles. Walking five mils a day, a man who has walked for thirty years will walk around the globe tw}.ce, and have a few thousand odd miles to his credit. NEWS IN BRIEF. Overflow From the Wires in a Con densed Form. The treasury department announces the appearance of a new counterfeit, a photographic reproduction of the $20 issue of the National State Bank of Metropolis. It is pronounced very crude. It has been announced authoritative ly that Secretary Moody of the navy would not remain in the cabinet longer than the present term of President Roosevelt. Mr. Moody then expects to resume the practice of law. The Lisbon correspondent of the London Morning Leader telegraphs that 30,000 workmen at Oporto hage gone out on a strike against their ex cessive hoars and small pay. The out break of disorders and a general strike 'are, apprctiendsd. "JACK HARKAWAY" COMING BACK Story That Thrilled the Boys of a Gen eration Ago. For a regular thriller commend me to "Jack Harkaway." Thirty-five years ago this sensational bit of fic tion exercised a greater influence on the character of the average boy of 10 to 15 than father, mother and the Ten Commandments. It was devoured by millions on both sides of the water. "Jack" was the ideal of the youth of all English-speaking countries. I see that it has been started again for a long run in a periodical that claims 1,250,000 circulation. Bracebridge Hemyng died in 1901. He wrote not only "Jack Harkaway," but forty-odd volumes of readable fiction, yet you will look in vain for his name in "John- son's," "Appleton's," "Chambers'," the "International" and the "Standard" cyclopedias, and in the "Ridpath Li brary of University Literature." The editors of all such works seem to make it a habit to leave out just what one wants to know.New York Press. Livery Stable A. M. BAGLEY SUCCESSOR TO J. J.
