How the New Comer is Sized Up Hotel Attractions and Personals. Sweet Springs, Mo., July 23. For the last ten days life at Sweet Springs has been ail that could be desired by ordinary in dividual. The weather has been perfect, the society agreeable, and Col. Hall seems to have made a special effort to make us comfortable. I have seldom seen or eaten better meals than I get here, and I have not beard a single complaint about the ho tel accomodations this season. Of oonrse some people would kick if they were play ing foot ball, and there is always a tot of those citizens at a watering place. They think it one of the priveleges paid for in their bilis,This year,however they confine it to the hot weather. Comparatively there has been no hot weather here as the mercury has not been higher than 95 and there is always a most delightful breeze. I congratulate myself every day that I am not a new arrival as the 'bus and car riages from every train are met by nearly all the guests, who stand on the east ver anda and remark on the. personal appear of each individual as he or she emerges from the vehicle, the young girl wonder ing if he dances or if he is married, and ihe boys suggesting that she is ugly, pret ty, stylish, and etc. It is amusing to see the attitudes assumed by new comers when they find themselves subjected to snch close scrutiny. Even the "od timers" quail under it. Miss Marie Louise Daily has returned to St. Louis. Wano Wilson, of Kansas City, took in the town Monday. J. J. Franklin, of Kansas City, will be here again Sunday. -John H. Reid, of Kansas City, is tak ing in the Springs. Col. J. W. Hall will move his family to the Springs this week.

Johnson, the engineer, who some weeks since carried oft from the office oi the secretary of state, the papers of incorporation of the Missouri Pacific branch railroad from Fort Smith to Little Rock, is in jail at Little Rock, Ark. He was caught and brought in by the sheriff of ' Legand county. After indictment by the ; grand jury there, he attempted to burn the paper after he carried it away. Fred S.

Owing to the formation of an ex tensive sand-bar just below Helena Ark., on the Mississippi side, the waters of the river have been gradually cutting away the bank on the Helena side. Yesterday mornings section of the bank about 60 feet wide and 600 feet long fell into the stream carrying with it the tracks of the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad. The track will at once be re built, but it is probable that another route into the city will have to be selected. For the past few days the suit for $10,000 damages of Mrs. Hite against the Inter-State Railroad company for running over and killing her husband on Oct. 21 1886, was on trial in the Wyandotte Kan circuit court General Sherry, the coonse for Mrs. Hite, produced evidence to show that absolute negligence was practiced bv the railroad company in allowing men to work upon the split log trestle and at the same time advise those running trains to make no stops for any cause. The case was given to the jury Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and at 8 they returned a verdict for the plaintiff for 9,000. This is the largest amount awarded against the road for damages. mi Ska . 0 inursda? aitrenoon last a learlul ac cident occurred at the bridge over Rock Creek, near Grieves' mill, at Koch port Mo., A child has been buried in Green Hill Cemetery, and the funeral party were re turning, when a team driven by a hoy be came frightened and ran away.

David Hot! man was hanged at Ne braska City Friday for wrecking a Mis soun Pavific passenger train on the night oi the iith ot January, last, at Dunbar, small station on the Missouri racific, ten miles west of that place. At the time of the wreck, Engineer Dewitt was instantly ti a m allied, ana a number ot passengers were seriously injured. Hoffman passed a good night, having retired early and sleeping soundly all night, tie ate a breakfast of fruit and a lew delicacies, and ascended the scaffold with a firm tread. He made an effort to say something, but broke down. The trap was sprung at 10:24 and he was strangled to death in eight minntes. His body was cut down and turned over to the county coroner. His confederate in the wrecking is serving a ten years' sentence in the penitentiary, having turned State's evi dence. The militia company was called out to keep order, but everything passed off quietly. Shallenberger, the fiendish child-murderer, during the hanging of Hoffman, was very restless having heard the current rumor that a mob was being formed in the country to clean out the jail, which has up to the present failed to materialize, though some anxiety is felt as to what time may bring forth.

All the American Associa tion games were postponed on account of rain. Indianapolis, lod., July 2:5. Social circles in Indianapolis are gossiping over the alleged elopement of a popular and wealthy young man with a coirely miss of eighteen summers. Fletcher Hmes is one of the parties. He is the only son of Judge C. C. Hine, late law partner of Senator Harrison. He is well to do and is heir to an estate of more than half million. He was reared here and sent to Harvard College, where he was graduated when yet in bis teens. Six years ago, at the age of twenty-six, he married an estimable young lady be longing to an excellent tamilv in ew York State, and thev made their home on farm in this county, where, surrounded by every comfort, their lot seemed replete with happiness. Aside from an occasional in dulgence in drink, Hines seemed to be good husband and was quite deveted his wife. He has two children a girl four years and an infant son. On Sunday evening last he bade a cas ual good-by to Mrs. Hines and his children saying be intended to drive over and the Harris natural-gas well. He did not return last night as was expected, and has not since been seen. His wife was net at first disturbed by his absence, thinking he had driven to the city, but on Monday evening when no message came from him and when scandalous rumors began to reach her she telegraphed Judge Hines, who is now in Vermont, asking him to come to her. He will perhaps arrive to morrow. Investigation proved that Fletch er had taken two suits of clothes with him, and this strengthened the fear that he would not return. Mrs. Hines, when seen at her home, re lated the circumstances as here stated. Although greatly distressed she was un willing to believe that her husband had been so cruel as to desert her. She said their domestic relations had been pleasant and happy and there had been nothing in Mr. Hines' demeanor to indicate that he had grown tired of her. She hoped he would come back and explain all, but it was evident she was hoping against hope. The girl with whom Hines' name is now coupled is Miss Alice Goodwin, who is better known as Alice Hunter, having been reared by a widowed aunt, Mrs. Hattie Hunter. Her mother died when she was three years old, and she spent the remaining fifteen years of her life at the Hunter homestead. She was naturally bright, and received a good training. Being possessed of personal charms, she grew to be a belle in and about Miliersville. Fletcher Hines was fond of society, and it began to be whispered nearly two years ago that he was unduly attentive to Miss Goodwin, of Hunter. Her character was above suspicion and no scandal was created, but, nevertheless, there was some quiet gossip, and finally a married son of Mrs. Hunter, who had learned that Hines had given the young lady presents, warned her against him. She was srtong-willed, accustomed to have her own way. She received attentions from several excellent young men in the neighborhood, but would receive no regu lar suitor. Sunday evening last a friend took her riding. She consented to go on condition that he would bring her home promptly at 8 o'clock. He complied with her wishes, though she gave no excuse for haste. When she returned home she talked to the family briefly and then went out doors. She came in again, but stayed only a moment, reinaraing suddenly : My nose is bleeding and I suppose it wont't stop for half m hour." With this she ran out of a rear door and did not return. The fact was soon devel oped that she had gone and taken her en tire wardrobe. Mr. Hunter said yesterday that there was not the slightest doifbt she had eloped with Fletcher Hines, and, be lieving this to be true, no effort has been or would be made to find her.

Flemming, a prominent insurance agent of Kansas City In closing, it is well to add that too much cannot be said of the medical properties of these spring, and it would be well to add, those who have tasted the waters of many other springs, give their testimony in favor of these.

Thev had to yield to this wish. At Mainau there waa a day of great fright. The emperor had a sinking spell one morning when they were dressing mm, wnicn lasted four hours. Two hours from the time, when the physicians believed he was dying, the emperor waa walking about. He has bean obliged to give up the wearing ol his uniform. It was too heavy. A lighter dress has been devised for him. He can not be made to understand why he is un able to do everything that he has been ac customed to do in the past. At Bregenz, when the prince regent of Bavaria came to see him, the emperior tried to walk down the gang plank con necting the vessel with the quay, If his adjutant Count LehndorfT, had not canght him by the arm he would have fallen. His physicians think that the slightest fall might result in his dying from the ner vons shock. At Gaatein the emperor walked up the steps of the hotel, leaning on the arm of two servants. After ten minutes of fright ful fatigue he rallied and showed no signs of weariness. The correspondent adds that the emperor's will power now entirely sustains him. He has strange sinking spells. He will talk clearly and strongly and as freely as ten years ago, and then he will go to aleep in the middle of a sentence, His physicians think that in one of these sleeps he may past away.

They claim their home hi Nelson county, fourteen miles from Bardston. The groom is about rtO years of age and the bride is sweet sixteen. Brown wore jeans pants that struck him about the knees.

New York, July 23. Lizsie Frances Daly was fourteen years of age Friday and was in i happy frame of mind until Jacob Lang, an eight-year-old boy, in a fit of an ger, plunged a freshly sharpened pen-knife blade into her left side. The blood spurted over her white sacque and she fainted. A doctor was called promptly, and he said that the steel struck against a rib and saved her heart from being punctured. Lizzie was lying on a lounge in her mother's room in a tenement-house at No. 351 East Thirteenth street, corner of Avenue C, when a reported called. Her long black hair fell Over her shoulders,and with her black eyes formed a strong contrast to her pale face and white wrapper. She was suffering much pain from her wound, and spoke with great deliberation. The men in an iron foundry on the opposite side of the street, she said, sent the little thrown cl5la.rea frequently for a pint of beer, re- "uruiui; tufiii wiiu a peuuy lor ineii trouble. Yesterday, in the race for the penny prize, Nellie Daly, her eight-year-old sister, was successful, and Jacob Lang grew angry, and tried to take Nellie's penny from her. To give emphasis to his demand he drew a small penknife, which was a Sunday-school gift on Christmas Day, and threatened to stao Nellie The little one screamedj and Lizzie Daly dropped a pan of wood she was carrying, and, run ning across the street, she exclaimed : 'Don't you hit my sister with that knife. Jakey," and to drive him away she slap ped his face. Jakey struck Lizsie with the knife, sending the blade into her side. At the sight of the blood and the stagger ing girl he ran into the house to his mother's rooms on the top floor, and when asked what he had done he sobbed and said : "I didn't do it, mamma : I didn't stab her." Mrs. Lang took a broken putty-blower from his hands, when the little fellow darted up the ladder to the roof and hid himself in a neihboring house, beyond the reach of Patrolman Walsh and Ward De tective McCormack, who were at work on the case. His mother is janitress of No. 351 East Thirteenth street, and his father is employed in the Eagle Pencil works, where he has worked for seventeen years. uWe have ten children,'' said Mrs. Lang, "six of them being grown men, and not one has ever been in court. My boy got his knife at Sunday school, the chil dren bringing home four of them Christmas day. I do wish they would not give chil dren such dangerous playthings. My lit tle boy had sharpened his knife on the door step to make him a boat, and see what has come of it. It is too terrible to think of." Mrs. Daly is the mother of six children, Lizzie being the eldest and her chief sup- Crt in housework. She regretted that szie bad such a sad birthday, and she joined Mrs. Lang in denouncing the habit of foundry men sending little children for beer and liquor and the saloon-keepers for selling it to minors. This, she thought, was the cause of all the trouble. in PUGILIST WBEDEN FATALLY SHOT. Pittsburg, Pa., July 23.
