Summary Vengeance.
On the 22nd iust. four desperate
convicts in the state penitentiary at
Canon City overpowered Capt. lloony
of the guard and stabbing him to
death, made their escape over the
walls of the prison and were soon at
large. Blood hounds were secured
and posse’s of ofUcicrs and men were
soon in hot pursuit. A few days la
ter two of the convicts, Antone
Woode and Kid Wallace were cap
tured in a starved and half frosen
condition and returned to the prison.-
Later Reynolds was taken in custody
and started for Canon, but when near
the city a company of several hun
dred enraged citizens took him from
the carriage in which ho was being
conveyed back, and hang him to a
telephone pole itt sight of the peni
tentiary. This Was done about 11
O’clock p. m. of Jan. 20th and there
the lifeless corpse with distorted
features hung until next day when
the Warden took possesion of the
grusome spectacle and gave it burial.

jmsonfers, especially those known to be
desperate, are allowed to have oppor

with which to' commit murder and
then deliberately make their escape.

William H. Goebel late Democratic
Candidate for goverucr of Kentucky
it Frankfort on Jan. 30th at 11 a. in.
It is not yet known whether the
wounded man may recover. He is
an aggressive politician and was carry
ing on a contest before the legislature
pf the state to determine whether he or

at the boiling point ever since elec

a tendency to allay the bitterness but
rather to increase it. Guns arc not

political quarrels; but down in that
state they are too frequently resorted
to.’ 4 Goebel should die we may

Her Six Children
All "Under Four.”
After thinking it out for flvo blocks
the conductor said to a man on the
back platform, “I don’t believe that
woman told the truth.”
She boarded a Third avciiifc car at
Ninth street with one baby in her
arms and five others of assorted sizes
tagging after her. The assorted
sizes climbed over the scats in riotous
joy and sat on the passengers. 'the
smallest crawled up aud down the
The woman paid five cents to the
conductor to pay for the transporta

the company is that for all persons
more than four years old fare must

“How old are they?” the conductor
asked sharply.
“Ikey, he three and a Half."
“Aud the next?”
“Rebecca? She three.”
“H’m!'* the conductor gtunted.
“Then what?”
“Little Mose; he two and a half.
Then Izzy, he two. After that come
Benny, the little one —he one. The
baby here—she six months.”
“All your children?” the conductor
“I am their mother,” she said.
The conductor thought there was a
flaw in the story somewhere but not
being able to detect it hud to pass on

things, being a bachelor,” he remarked
later. “But there was something pe
culiar about that family.”—Selected.
When Papa’s Sick.
When Papa’s sick, my goodness sakeb!
Such awful, awful times it makes,
Ho speaks in, ohJ.ruch lonesome tones/
Ami gives such ghas’ly kind of groans,
And rolls his eyes and holds his head,
And makes ma [iclp him up to bed;
While Sis and Bridget run to heat
Hot water bags to warm his feet,
Aud I must get the doctor quick—
Wo have to jump when papa’s sick.
When papa’s sick ma has to stand
Kight side the bed and hold his hand,
While Sis she has to fan nil’ fan,
For he says lip’s “a dyin’ man,” „
And wants the children round him to
Be there v.iien “sufferin’ pa gets
He says he wants to say ggqil by
And kiss us all and then h ;’il die:
Then moans and says hi*' “breathin's
thick” »
It’s awful sad when papa’*-. sick.
When papa’s sick ho acts that way,
Until he hbars the doctor nay,
“You’ve only got a cold you know
You’ll be all right in a drty or so,”
And then—well, say! yotlought to sec,
He’s different as he can be.
And growls and swear? from noon to
Just ’causd lus dinner ain’t cooked
Anti all he does is fuss and kick—
We’re all used up when papa’s sick.
