"Prof. C. C. Parker's recitations, "Fra Glamo" and "Josh Billings on Courting" were well calculated to pisplay his versat ility in a pronounced degree.

It is intensely dramatic and requires the most careful treatment One could almost see the perfidious monk cowering before the wronged husband as he hurled maledictions on his head. At the climax Mr. Parker rose to a pitch of grandeur seldom reached on the rostrum. He was vigorously en cored. The "Josh Billings Lecture on Courting" was delivered with a delicious drawl after the manner of the humoreist and caused much laughter. The entertainment in its entirety was a fine success, and reflected much credit upon the school, and upon Prof. Parker who dir rected the same. Lexington Intelligencer. WHIST CLUB.

A DESPERATE STRUGGLE, In Which an xpress Messen ger Was Assaulted and Killed by Robbers, Who Secure a Booty Estimat ed at From $25,000 to $100,000. Chicago, Mar, I. 13. -A Jnliet, 111.' rial to the Evening News says one of most dsring and bloody express rob beriee ever perpetrated in Illinois o rurred on the Chicago, K k Island A Pacific weet bound express bet weeu this place and Morris. Thr facts as learne I from the baggageman are that shortly after the train which leaves here at 1MB a. m had left here he heard a ran at the baggage car door. Thiaking it was the ex press saesse i ger he opened the door and was met by masked robbers who covered him with re volvers end demandrd the key to the ex press car. The key was given up. One rubber, who was on top of the b iggage car, sU A KKVoLVEk on the bagg-ige man through the transom of the roof of the car. while his confed erates turnt-d their attention to the express car. He thought they rapped at the express car door, and informed the mesKe ger that ti.e baggageman want d to get in. At any rate the express car wa opened and the desperadoes entered, and then occurred one of the most bloody and deeperate struggles on record. Being con fronted by the murderous villains the mes senger FOt'GliT FOR HIS LIFE and the property in his possession. The interior of the exprss car shows that he fought the robbers from one end of the car to the otht r, but at last the murderous bio we thst they raine on his head with an iron poker, forced him to succumb, and he was left dead n the car. The robbers then RIFLED HIM POCKETS for the keys to the safe, which they robbed of all its contents, variously estimated at from $25,000 to $100, 000. Checks and valuable packages not containing money they left scattered about the floor. Nothing was known of the occurrence until the train reached ' orris, the first stop west of here, except at the coal chute, where the train stopped to take on coal. At Morris the local express mes senger rapped on the express car door as a summons. Not being answered, it waa thought the messenger was asleep. Upon the door of the car being opened the hor rible evidences of the desperate struggle and the dead body of the messenger were discovered. In one hand THE HERO had a lock of dark colored hair that must have been torn from the head of one of his assailants. The news was at once tele graphed to Ottawa and Sheriff Reits and Chief of Police Murray at once organised a posse aud started on a special engine for Morris, Btopping on the way at the coal chute, two miles west of here to see if they could find where the des peradoes bo rdeti the train. At that point snow was falling slightly snd the tracks were nearly covered. A large force of officers and men from this place and Mor ris is now SCOURUro THE COUNTRY. and it is thought the guilty men capiured in which event they will bly be lynehed, as public opinion in this town is at fever heat and it will not be safe for the murderers to be caught here. The dead m ssenger was a married man and had been in the service of the Uni-ed States Express company for ten years and was one of their most trusted employes. His home is at Chicago. WHO HE WAS. Chicago, Ills., March 13. Mr Wygart. the agent of the United States Express Company, states this evening that the loss bv this morning's robbery will be inside of $25,000. There was little over $20,000 in money. The balance of the stolen matter consisted of packages of jewelry and other things which he thinks were not valued above $2,500. It is impossible just now to fix the loss exactly. The express company is working jointly with the Rock Island railway in endeavoring to catch the rob bers. The $10,000 reward is offered jointly by th two companies. Assistant Agent Hammond, of the United States Express company's office in this city, said in re gard to the murdered man : "Mr. Kellogg Nichols was a brave and trusted emp oye of the company. He was about 40 years of age, and had spent twenty years with the company, being one of the oldest employes running on any road out of this city. Mr. Nichols wss a married man. but had no children." The baggagemasler, N. H. Walt, who is about 24 years old, told the following story: "1 was sitting in the car. The chains were upon the door which went back to the train, but the door in the front part of the car was n.t locked as waa the car ahead in which was the messenger. He was checking up his runs. I sat on a trunk and iust after they had whistled for Minolta I heard a sort of a scraping sound on the floor, bat not much, just as though some one had rubbed his foot on the door. Before I could turn around, a big gun was poked over my shoulder and a man said I 'You open your mouth or move a muscle and I'll BLOW YOUR BRAINS OCT.' I could only see the lower part of his face. It was covered with paper or some sort of cloth. I sat looking toward the back part of the car. toward the rear of the train, when I heard some one at the safe, which was behind me. I could hear the rustling and tearing of papers. This went on for awhile and the man who stood over me said : 'If you move or stir hand or foot before the train stops at Mor ris that man up there will blow the top of your bead off. I rolled up my eyes a d there was a man's hand stuck through the ventilator with aguo in it In aboutfive min utes, as it seemed to me, the train slowed up for Morris and I looked up. The hand was COOe an t I jumped out of the car I heard FEARS OF A FAILURE.

The bridge and tunnel men refused to return at an advance until permitted by the Knights of Labor. Lively Times at Parsons. Parsons, March 13. The fi st skirmish of the strike was h d to-day when the of ficiate of the company tried to rnn out a freight tr in, and resulvd in a victory for the strikers. The train was run from vi us kogee throu h the territory in charge of a U Waled States marshal and when it reached the Kanas line was turned over to Sheriff Woodford. The train was sidetracked at Oswego, a email elation fourteen miles south of here, but managed to g t off there and reached Parsons at 10 o'clock this morning. The etri Iters had pat vols out and when the train came to a halt for the railway crosein the engine w.is uncoupl d from th? train, the ti'-e pulled out, and the engine scarcely had steam enough to slowly pull into the r und hou-e, ihe sheriff sitting on the tender, tuonaieh of all he surveyed, but powerlifs to do anything. Superintend ent Golden had an engine ready to take a train out and the sheriff, Judge Kelso and a few others we e on the engine redy to go with the train. A the engine pul ed ou' of the round house, the pony switch engine was run down on the main track in such a way as to iiupeie its prog ress, and the freight engine was surrounded bv so manv men that it m m had to stop. The switch engine was run up to the freight engine. The crowd g ive way so it could couple on to t'e freight engine and in a minute the freight engine was being pushed with lightning speed back to the ound house, where the fire was drawn and steam bio n of!. The sheriff is still here but no new demonstrations have been made and it is claimed by some that the marshals of the territory have been sent for to help the sheriff get the train out. It is now apparent that the en gineers, tinmen and brakemen are friendly to the strikers, and it is doubtful if they will work if the company gets other men. For the sake of the strik rs, their families and the business men generally, it is hoped the strike will be speedily settled, as it is financially working a great hardship on all. At Big Springs.

Some minor points at issue were also arranged. Several new men were enlisted in the service of tne Missouri Pacific to day and sent to the yards, but they were intercepted by the strikers and dissuaded from going to work. A switch engine was fired up by the com pany to-day, but the strikers turned a hose on the fires and put them out. No turther effort was made to resume busiuess. A CALL FOR MILITIA.
