3 SHOT A BURGLAR. Ad Early Morning Encounter in an Ann Street Cigar Factory. New York, Julv 26. August Miller, of No. 106 West Thirty -eight street, is nine teen years old, and is employed as clerk by Henry Mayer, whose cigar factory is on the third floor of No. 22 Ann street. It is part of Miller's business to open the facto ry every morning. Yesterday morning at 7 o'clock he found the door open. Step ping aside, he found a strange man indus triously shoving boxes, of cigars into a large bag. " What are you doing here ?" demanded Miller. TV burglar turned, pulled out a bright revol ver and fired two shots in quick suc y. saion. The bullets whizzed past Miller's bead and the man closed with his assail ant. Miller tried to seize the weapon, aod in the struggle it was discharged again. This time the ball lacerated the forefinger of Miller's right hand and passed through his hat. The burglar flung Miller to the floor and ran away, leaving his weapon behind. Miller's wound was dressed at the Cham bers Street Hospital. He describes the burglar as tall, slender and shabby. The police were notified of the shooting and Detective Shelby was put on the case. It is thought that the burglar was possibly an inmate of the lodging-house over the cigar factory. i mm Took Eoison. St. Louis July 26. At 10:30 yesterday morning Annie G'Donnell, living on .North Broadway, near Madison, called at the drug store of Otto D' Amour and obtained a quantity of rat poison. Proceeding to her home', she carefully buttered a piece of pie with the poison, and then celiberately consumed the mixture. A neighber was attracted by the cries of her little sister, went to the house and found Annie O'Donnell in a complete state of collapse. A large quantity of warm water was at once administered and a doctor summoned, who applied the necessary remedies and succeeded in expelling the poison from her system. Disappointment in love is said to have been the reason of the rash attempt. This opinion gained strength when it be came known that an intimate friend of Annie O'Donnell, Annie Grimshaw by name, living at 908 Tyler street, had made a similar attempt on the preceding night, an i had only been saved by the prompt arrival of a doctor and a stomach pump. A young man had been dividing his attentions between the pair, and this is -apposed to be the cause oi both attempts at self-murder. Both girls are entirely out of danger. "Liucky" Baldwin. San Francisco, Cal., July 26 The famous Perkins-Bald win breach of prom ise case came to what seems a sudden end Saturday at Lot Angeles. It will be re membered that Miss Louise C. Perkins, the daughter of one of the renters from Bald win on his great Santa Anita ranch, brought suit against "Lucky" Baldwin, the aged millionaire, for $150,000. She claimed that Baldwin had promised to marry her when he marriad his last wife, Miss Bennett, she brought this suit. Bald win tried to secure a change of venue but failed. Miss Perkins estab lished the main facts of her com plaint and the jury promptly returned a verdict of $75,000. Baldwin at once ap pealed. The case was to come up to-day on appeal, but Saturday evening just be fore the court house closed in Los Angeles, the attorney for Ealdwin filed a supple mental answer, in which they declared that for the payment ef $100 "and other good and valuable considerations" the plaintiff had agreed to settle the claim against the defendants. This was a bombshell for Miss Perkin's lawyers, who knew nothing of the flank movement by the wily old man. It seems that Baldwin's detectives, after two months' work, induced Miss Perkins to make the compromise for $12,000 and the payment of her lawyers' fees. There is a promise of a lively time in court to-day when the case comes up, as Miss Perkins's lawyers are very angry. Killed Mm Father. Augusta, Ky., July 28. A most cruel and bloodthirsty murder was committed at an early hour yesterday morning at Neave's Cross Roads, a village in the west ern portion of this county, near the Pendle ton line. The killing was done by John Neaves, eldest son of Joseph Neaves, an aged citi zen, and it was the murderer's father who fell a victim to his fury. The trouble that led to the deed grew out of a will made by the deceased, by which his son John was disinherited. There had been repeated quarrels over the matter between the father and the son, who thought that he had not been well treated. As a result John Neaves had re peatedly asked his younger brother aad other relatives to try to influence his fath er to destroy this will and make a new one, but in vain. Thus there had grown to be bad blood between father and son and they often quarrelled. But matters never came to a culmination until this morning, when they met and entered for the last time upon an angry depute over the question of the will. Words led to words, and finally the son, blinded by anger, drew his gun and shot his father down. The old manafell, cover ed with blood ; and, realizing what he hsM done, John then turned and fled. At a late hour last evening nothing had been heard as to his whereabouts. The town marshal at Falmouth and officers at other points have been telegraphed to be on the lookout for the murderer and arrest him. Wool Wool Wool Wool.

Mrs. Perry Farrow, whose implication in a scanaal with Howard Farrow, her hus band's cousin, caused a great social and church sensation, and resulted in the trial and expulsion of both from the Baptist church of this city, was found late last night in an alley, directly in the rear of the home of Farrow, in an unconscious condition and apparently dying. The woman was accompanied bv one of her little children, and the cries of the child attracted the attention of the neighbors. As soon as possible she was conveyed to her home and medical aid summoned. Everything possible for her relief was done, but with little hope of success. She had taken enough laudanum, it was be lieved, to kill half a dozen people. This morning it was discovered that the woman's clothing had been torn, as if in a struggle, while the gronud in the neigh borhood where she was found showed signs of bavinc been violently disturbed. It was at first believed that Mrs. Farrow had deliberately deermined upon suicide, but the discoveries have puzzled the orb dab. The people are excited over the aflair and geuerally lay the blame of the woman's troubles on the man wLo betray ed her and then confessed the crime. TOO OLD TO HUT. A REMARKABLE IDIOT. Kept Fastened With Strap and Manacle For Half a Lifetime. Providence, fe. I., July 28. One of the most remarkable instances of idiocv, or lunacv, to be witnessed in any r art of the world may be seen in an old farm-house in the town of Suiithfield, about seven miles from this citv. Almon Smith, nearly forty years of age, is fastened with strap and manacle in a small room, and usually naked, and has been kept in this situation for many years. This may seem incredi ble, but it is nevertheless a fact, and, what may seem equally incredible, is that noth ing better can be done with the man. He has been an idiot from birth, or at least from infancy. He has no intelligence whatever, not even that of the lowest stage of the brute creation, and does not even know his mother, who, from babyhood up, has been his devoted attendant. The man is well-formed, his head is of the round type and the brain apparently weU developed. He does not talk, but utters shrinks and cries at intervals, and sometimes tears at his head with his hands as if suffering pain. He is kept fastened to a staple in the floor, and from fear of his doing violence to any one, to which he has never shown a disposition, but from apprehension that, in his utter helplessness he might huit himself. His cries can sometimes be heard for a quarter of a mile, but as the house stands some distance from the travelled highway the public are not disturbed. The State authorities investigated the case some time ago and came to the con clusion that the man was better off where he was than be would be in a lunatic asylum. In the summer time he is some timp taken ont and fastened to a tree for fresh air. The case is especially singular . . lor the reason mat me unionunaie man s health is apparantly excellent apart from Lis utter idiocy. He is the owner of a small property and is under the guardian ship of a relative, the family being one of the oldest and most respectable in the state. Fell From a Window . Kansas City, July 26. G. A. Perkins, a saddler working at 706 Walnut street, and rooming over the store, fell from the second story window last night, as half past 1 o'clock, and was badly injured. Perkins is unmarried and rooms with Fry Fox. Fox says Perkins came into the room about 1 o'clock. He was awakened by the noise in the room but dropped ofl to sleep in a few minutes, The next thing he heard was some .Iking outside on the street Going to the window he saw a man standing over Perkins, who had evidently fallen out of the window. Parkins had come home under the in fluence of liquor. He had undressed, and the supposition is that feeling sick he had gone to the window to vemit and had fallen out. He was cut over the left eve, and had bled pretty freely. An awning under the window had broken his fail, which, otherwise, might have proved a fatal one. Unless he recieved some in ternal injuries, he is not likely to suffer very greatly from the fall. Arrested for Kissing. Chicago, 111., July 28. Justice Lyon was to-day called upon to decide the question whether kissing in a parlor in front of an unblinded window was disor derly conduct. The complaint was Mrs. Oleson. keeper of a fashionable boarding house at 1400 Michigan avenue, and she had August . Gans arrested for kissing one of her beautiful lady lodgers named Miss Hansen. A large crowd of witnesses was in court to testify against the defendants, and such a mass of feathered bonnets and silk tiles has seldom crowded the Armory. Every body swore that it was not an infrequent spectacle to behold Miss Hansen at her room window submitting to kisses from Mr. Gans, and one witness went so far as to say that the gentleman had been observed playfully biting the lady's ear. There has certainly been a subdued row in progress for some time over the affair. Mr. Gans made a passionate appeal for himself and the honor of the lady. The young ladies living there thought the priso ner "acted very disorderly .'' "Do you think it disorderly conduct to be kissed by a young man before a win dow ?" asked the court of the tallest wit ness. "Of course I do," she replied, with a proud elevation of her shapely nose. At this the rest tittered and blushed profusely- Justice Lyon meditated for a moment and then he said : "Well, I think there is more jealousy here than disorderly con duct. I'll discharge the prisoner." . Prompt relief in sick headache, diz ziness, nausea, constipation, pain in the side, etc., guaranteed to those using Car ter's Little Liver Pills.

Standiford died this morning at 4 o'clock, at his home, 1022 Fourth avenne. He had been in poor.health for about three months and was seriously ill a week before his marriage 10 Miss Laara Scott at Paducab. a little over two weeks ago. He would not have a physician, however, not think ing his condition serious enough, and it was not until 'last Friday that Drs. Yan dell and Roberts were called upon him. He was seriously ill from that time until yesterday morning at 6 o'clock. He had been in bed, however, since Friday week. Yesterday morning he felt much better, but was unable to get out of bed. He tried to take a little nourish ment, but all that he could retain was a little boiled milk and beef tea. He was quite cheerful, however, and talked with various members of the family who were with him. Up to noon he continued to feel better, but after that time he began to grow worse. He evidently had not the slightest idea of his approaching dissolu tion, however, and neither did his fsmily, nearly all of whom were with him. About 10 o'clock he grew much worse. Drs. Yandell and Roberts were sent for and re mained with him until his death. In spite of all that could be done he sank rapidly. A few minutes before 4 o'clock he called three times for "Mary," meaning his daughter, Mrs. Murrav Keller. He evidently had something that he wished to say to her. However, he could not make himself un derstood, he was so weak. Dr. Standiford was an sctive candidate for the United States Senate to succeed Mr. Beck. He was ex-President of the Louisville A Nashville railroad, President of the J. M. A I. Bridge Company, a director of the Farmers A Drovers' Bank, and a farmer on an extensive scale, and one of tne wealthiest men in the State, Dr. Standiford leaves a family of seven children.

Stanford, Jr. The latter two are 8 and 10 vears old, Miss Virginia 15 nnH Frank 22 vears old. All of tbsm were present at his bedside except Mrs. Dan forth, who was at her home in the country. He was 56 years old. EDITOR ANTHONY Once More Feels the St ins The Lash, Bat Don't Complain. of Leavenworth, Kan., July 28. D. R. Anthony, the notorious editor of the Leav enworth limes, was horsewhipped by Cap tain W. H. Bond, councirman from the Second ward, about noon to-day on Dela ware street, and though there were many people around, no one interfered, while shouts were heard : "Give it to bim, Billy ; kill the " For several months Anthony had been very sbusive in his paper toward Mr. Bond and a number of other citizens, ap plying epithets to them of which a com mon blackguard would be ashamed. This tirade was keot up from day to day, ap nurantlv without anv cause. Last Satur- dav he spoke of Mr. Bond as follows : "In fact he is a double-distilled scoundrel. He is a 'vicious doe whom we fed' in early dsys ; a snake which we warmed into life He is one of the in g rates to be despised because he is coarse, brutal and cowardly. This paper simply stated a fact abou him, hence the indorse ment of him by Neely's paper. We don't hanker after skunks." The above, although no worse than many other things said by Anthony of Mr. Bond, aroused his ire, and he determined to use a whip on Anthony on sight. An thony goes but little on the street, and though Bond kept a close watch, he failed to meet his man until to-day at noon. Shortly after 12 o'clock Anthony started down the south side of Delaware street where Bond was waiting for him. He had just passed Arthur Simmons' store, when he was met by Bond who, without any parleying, began his work of chastising Anthony. The instrument used was an ordinary rawhide, and the blows came from it thick and heavy. Anthonv stood without even attempting to make a defense, simply folding his arms across his face to ward on the blows. Right and left come the blows across his head, face, neck and body, and when Bond had almost tired of his task he revised his bat tery and used the butt end of the hide. Several words passed during the per formance. Anthonv denouncing Bond, and adding that he would use his name in the ... a paper as often as he desired. After ten minutes of hard work in belaboring the man, a police officer ap- -1 1 J .

A foul murder occurred at Lebanon, Tenn , this morning. Lieut. H. T. Lane, a lawyer and one of the most prominent citizens, was shot and instantly killed by X. B. j Lester. Lane's office was on Last .Main street, about a block from the public square. He had risen this morning and, as was his custom, was sitting outside his office door, when Lester came out, three doors above, with a shotgun. He advanced to within about six steps of where Lsne was sitting and shot him, the charge taking effect in Lane's left side. When he received ihe charge, Line fell from his chair and said : "Don't shoot again." Lester stepped up close to Lane, saying : "D n you, I'll kill you," emptied the second barrel of the gun, aiming directly at his victim's left side, killing him in stantly. The shoottng was witnessed by several gentlemen. The Coroner's jury held an inquest, the verdict being murder in the first degree. Lester was committed to jail and brought to Nashville for safe keeping. Lester married a Mrs. Gibson, Gibson was a Knight of Pythias, and had $2,000 in surance in that order. Tbe money was secured to Gibson's children and Lester could not get hold of it. Lieut. Lane was the agent who had the handling of the money. Lester wan very jealous of Lane and his wife, and had threatened to kill her several times on that account, Lester was a former resident of Nashville. A GIRL'S STKANGE SI HIDE. TJjCOBS Q Gertrude Beeoroft Takes Rat Poison and Dies in New York Hospital. A WOMAN BEATEN TO DEATH Found on Her Bed With Her Head Crushed In. New York, July 28. Mrs. Emma John son, who boarded with Nathaniel Knapp at No. lo Kaniapo avenue, raterson, broke her neck yesterday ,as was at first supposed by falling out of bed. She drank quite freely Sunday night, and yesterday morn ing, when she arose and diw her son out of the kouse on his way to work, she also im bibed copiously of a flask of liquor. She then returned to her bed and nothing was heard of her for some hours. Shortly after 9 o'clock Knapp. hearing no sounds from her room, thought that something unusual had taken place, and this suspic ion was added to by the fact that a short time previously he had heard a noise such as would have been created by a person tumbling out of bed. Knocking at the en trance ot Mrs Johnson s apartments, and. receiving no response, he became alarmed and forced the door, when he saw her ly ing doubled up on the floor. Drs. Myers and Smith held an autopsy last evening by order of Coroner Hopson. They found that her neck was not broken, but her nose was smashed and there was other evidence that she had met her death bv being beaten on the head with a club. The doctors told the coroner that they be lieved Mrs. Johnson had been murdered. The coroner accordingly decided to ar rest the proprietor of the hotel and the others who were there in the morning, and they were taken into custody. The coro ner has also evidence that there was a big fight there early yesterday morning and he has good reason to believe that Mrs. John son was murdered and laid alongside the bed where she wan found. Tne affair will be thoroughly investigated. The place is said to be one of the worst in the city, and a resort for the lowest people or both sexes. A Missing Husband. St. Louis, July 27. The absence of Henry H. Hess from his home, 2307 Do dier street, is a mystery which his wife thinks she has solved, though there is a bare possibility that she has reached her conclusion by a woman's extravagant methods of induction snd deduction. He is missing however, and his wife and children are left alone. Hess was a sales man for A. Loth & Sons, 614 Locust street. On July 4 he sent his wife and children to Altenburg, Mo. His wife wrote to him, but received no answer. Then she wrote to the firm by whom he was employed and learned that he had gone to Kansas City, or rather that he had said he was going to that city with a Mrs. Roeder and her daughter Lulu, and that Mrs. Roeder had returned to St. Louis, but not Hess or her daughter Lulu. His wife had received a postal card from bim dated Kansas City, stating he was going to Colorado. She claims to have heard him claim that be couldn't live without Lulu Roeder. His Lulu was tall and slender and a beauty, and his wife called at his Lulu's mother's house, finding there his photo on the wall. She claimed it and got it. Mrs. Roeder, the mother of Lulu, was interviewed by the wife, but the interview was unsatisfactory. Hess had been keep ing company with Lulu for over a year. He wanted to marry Lulu and went with her and her mother to Kansas City, to be married at Mrs. Roeder's parent's farm, near Kansas City. Mrs. Roeder did not believe that her daughter had married Hess, but had not heard from her daugh ter since she the mother i had left Kan sas City. Wiehlta Murder. Wichita, Kan., July 27. Some time ago a wealthy widow of this city married Joseph Dewitt, a man who never amounted to much and who had a number of daugh ters by a former wife living at Hot Springs, Ark. Sunday one of Dewitt's daughters, named Mollie Bennett came to Wichita and the second wife refused to let her enter the house. Yesterday evening about 0 o'clock Mollie went to the house in a buggy, accom panied by a young man, and getting out of the vehicle went into the house, knife in hand, and stabbed her stepmother about twenty times, inflicting fatal wounds, one cut almost severing the windpipe, tiie rest of the stabs being in the breast and arms. The murderess then got back into the buggy and was driven away. Officers are now .out in search of her, but it is thought she has got off on a train. Endorsed by Physicians and Drnfjprists.

New York, July -Gertrude Beecroft the pretty seventeen-year-old girl, whose mother lives at No. 267 West Seventeenth street, and who took rat poison on Satur day night, died at the New York Hospital at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. She was in an unconscion condition when brought to the hospital. Before he died she rallied at intervals, and during her rational mo ments she cried, "Johnnie Flynn Johnnie Flynn," and added that young man's ad dress, No. 145 East Fifteenth street. It is believed that she had been betrayed and had been turned away from home. So far as is known, these are the reasons why she committed suicide. She was employed until about five weeks ago in a candy store of the West Side hotel, on Sixth avenue and Fifteenth street. Here she met the young man, John Flynn, who lives at No. 145 Last Fifteenth street. When she met him, he was living at the hotel. After Gertrude left the hotel, Flynn used to visit her at her mother's home, No. 267 Wrest Seventeenth street Flynn is about twenty-four years old, and at his home yesterday he said that he met Gertrude at the West Side Hotel, and later visited her at her mothers house. His sister had taken a fancy to Gertrude, and a week ago, when her mother turned Gertrude away, she came to his house. He said he had heard rumors of her condition and also of her intimacy with a Dr. Gray, whose address he did not know. Flynn didn't know why the girl took poison. Saturday night she had been drinking, be said, and when she returned she went to her room and was taken sick. Later she was brought to her brother Reginald. An ambulance was called and she was taken to the hospital. The Beecrofts re fuse to be seen yesterday. Missouri State Fair.

At a dance at Harper recently, one of tbe belles of that place stepped on ber partner's foot and mashed bis toes so badly that he was obliged to have two of them amputated. Anthony Republican. Yes, we remember this misfortune very well. It was our toes she stepped on, but it was a young lady from An thony who did the damage. She was visiting here and after the carpenters had sawed the door out so as to allow her to get her feet into the ball room, we stooped down with a hand spike to lift one of them over the step when the spike broke and we fell, and be fore the crowd could drag us into a place of safety, one ponderous foot was placed upon the small of our back and the other ground the eternal symmetry out of our shapely ioes. Some other damage was done by the big footed belle during the evening, but I don't remember now what it was. Oft' in the stilly night we swear like a pirate at the thought ot this un fortunate accident and wondered how much territory our feet might have covered by this time had they not met with this back set. Ever since that night we dance only with the girls of Harper, whose fairy feet would leave no tracks even on the dust covered floor of an Anthony print shop. A Clear Complexion.
