Twenty-1 five men walked into this city of, 22,000 people this morning and strung, up a man on the principal street with out meeting auy opjosition. The( victim was Samuel Bush, a negro, ac cused of outraging two white women. The details of the lynching were sen rational from start to finish. Bush was in jail awaiting trial. A guard of twelve men had heeu put in the jail and an extra force of men were put on duty outside. At just 2. o'clock tweuty-five meu came in on a rush upon ood street. They were quiet, without masks and moved in :i solid liody. They forced their way through the crowd and knocked on the door of the jail. Deputy Sheriii Midkitf and Special Otlicer Foster sat just inside the door and refused them admittance. One blow from a sledge crashed in the wooden door. The keys of the jail were demanded hut both officers declared that thuy did not have them. The men then went to work with sledge hammers and ehisc-ls on the outside door. Twenty minutes elapsed before it was forced. thk marshal not m:Kir.i. Marshal Mason forced his way through the spectators and into the jail and started to address the men at work. They seized him and eiimded him out the door. Some one gave hima hard kick in the stomach. "When the fiist door was opened, it took twenty minutes to force the liars across the 'corridor, which opened to all the cells. A frightened . negro in- fcide pointed out Bush's cot. Three j men rushed in and found it apparent-1 ly empty. Ihey jerked over the mat tress and the negro tumbled out. He had crawled inside. HE SEEMED COOL. "Gentlemen, von are kiilinr -un in nocent man" he said He was drawed out into the street. The news of the attack on the jail seemed to have spread over the town and 1,500 people were there. About 600 yards away is one of the most prominent corners of the city and di rectly in front of the court house. There the lynchers went Office of the Health Commissioner. St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 21, 1893. THE conflicting publications about the baking powders caused me to ask City Chemist Dr. Sullivan for a report upon them. He has analyzed the principal brands sold in St: Louis, and reports that the Royal is the purest and greatest in leavening strength. This has induced the use of the Royal Baking Powder in my home, and it is found to give most complete satisfaction. Wm. N. Brennan, M. D. Health Commissioner. Something Extra!

Finally the spectators began to get impatient. A man had rl imbed half way up the pole. The rope was passed to the man on the pole, he put it over a guide wire anil the crowd pulled. The negro's body, now naked as the day he was born, was swung up into sight f ur feet from the ground and fell back. The negro uttered no sound. A few in the crowd groaned while others yelled. Then a hack was driven into the crowd against the protests of the cabman. The negro was forced to stand upon it. The rope was tied to the cro.-s arm on the pole. The hack was driven awa- and the body fell. Two doctors pronounced him dead in Ihe body MADE AN ASSIGNMENT. The Largest Private Bankins Firm in the Northwest Goes Under. Mr. Sehaffner.

The cause of the failure is too much commercial paper. They were the biggest dealers in commercial paper in the country. There was no sale to speak of of commercial paper this year, and that is the cause of the failure.
