TWO CRIMES
COMBINED
Murder and Robbery at
Washington, Pa
DYNAMITE UNDER BUGGY
One Kan Killed Outright. Another
Badly Injured and $3,600
Cash KissiaG.
Washington, Pa., Sept. 23. One of the
most fiendish murders and robberies ia
the history of Washington county occurred
this afternoon on the Middletown road
about 13 miles from here. Samuel T. Fer
guson of the Ferguson Construction
company of Pittsburg was instantly
killed and his secretary, Charles L. Mar
tin of Cincinnati was fatally injured.
The two men were driving along the
road in a bugy, carrying $3,000 In cash
with which to pay off some of their men
employed on construction work along the
line of the Wabash railroad, when sudden
ly an explosion of dynamite in the I ad
way literally tore the rig to pieces, killed
Ferguson outright and threw Martin 20
feet, tearing his left arm almost from the
socket.
Jt has been learned lhat two men, sup
posed to be i'oles, placed the dynamite in
the road for the purpose of killing Pay
master Ferguson and had arranged to ex
plod 8 it by means of an electric battery.
The satchel containing the money is miss
ing. ". .
Two suspects are under arrest in the
camp of the construction company near the
village, but the farmers of the section who
are scouring the country for traces of the
murderers believe they have one of them
at bay in an abandoned jnine about a mite
and a half northeast of Middletown.
So quickly was everything accomplished
that the men who were implicated pot
away with their booty before they could
be overtaken, although the county author
ities believe that if the right meu are not
those under arrest they will have little dif
ficulty in taking them.
MONEY FOR DOWIE'S TRIP.
About $2fl,OiM Contributed la a
Mailt I"r Sew YorSi liiintlm.
"Give something. (live as the Lord
has lib you. Give cheerfully. Zion
lias entered upon a campaign which
will require all its strength and zeal
and much money, its army of peace
will Invade New York. It will stay nn J
conquer the city for Zion. The siege cf
the Imperial metropolis will cost thou
sands of dollars. Every penny will
help, and remember that every penny
you give w ill lx for the glory of Zmi."
Dr. John Alexander Lewie stood up
on tho platform of the tabernacle at
Zion City the other evening and ad
dressed a congregation of hi followers
that filled the great building to the
door, says a Waukegau (111.) dispatch
to the New York Herald. Fully O.iNH)
people of Zion had gathered to make
their "sacrifice of thanksgiving" for
the New York campaign, A map of
Greater New Vork twenty feet high
and half aa broad was suspended be
hind the pulpit To Dr. Howie's right
fiat Elder Lee, "recorder of the host,"
and to his left Overseer Speieher. In
the center of the stage stood n barrel
covered with red, white and blue bunt
ing to receive contributions.
"I myself will contribute $."O0 to start
the campaign fund," said Dr. Dowle.
He drew a cheek for the amount
from his pocket, held it aloft and then
dropped it into the barrel, while the
congregation clapped its hands and
-thundered, "Amen;" Overseer Speioher
announced that he had contributed
$100 and had collected $225 more. El
der Lee declared that more than $1,000
already bad been subscribed.
Then under direction of Zion guards
the congregation arose in section after
section of the building and w hile Zlon's
band in khaki in the gallery played
marching tunes filed by the barrel and
dropped lu their money.
It was half past 9 o'clock when the
contributions U-gau; it was nearly
midnight when they ended. At the
close Dr. Dowle nnnounced that the
barrel was nearly half full of silver
and paper money, and he tipped it ovfcr
so that the congregation could see that
he spoke the truth. The money was
not counted, but it is thought to amount
to nearly $20,000.
Teaching Forestry In ladlnmt.
Arrangements have been completed
for the etftablir-huieut of a department
of forestry in Purdue university, says
the NeW York Commercial Advertiser.
Experiments and the lesting of the
different trees and shrubbery in th
United States will be the principal
work of the new branch of the school
and the government will soon erect a
large bui'diug and install apparatus
needed in the study. An extensive tract
of land will of necessity be added to
the already large Purdue farm for the
raising and cultivation of the trees and
shrubs and will greatly broaden the
; scope of the university.

NEW FIRE MASK.
Improved Helmet to B lied by tbe
l'aria Department.
A member of tho Paris fire brigade
bns invented a new mask which is
claimed to be a great improvement
over all previous ones, says a Loudon
special to the Chicago Inter Ocean.
It can be fixed to an ordinary helmet
and around the neck by straps. The
visor is of mica, protected by wire.. In
front of the mouth two pipes open, one
furnishing fresh air ami the other car
rying off what has been breathed. A
reservoir worn on the back as a Unnp
sack contains two compartments, one
holding two steel jars tilled with com
pressed air. The other bag, which is
called the lung and which is connected
by copper tubing with the steel jars
and special mechanism, admits air
only at nominal pressure to the lung,
whence it is conveyed to the mouth.
The mask leaves the ears uncovered.
An electric bell gives warning when
the supply of air is running out. Th)
apparatus' weighs ouly twelve kilo
grams and will be put into immediate
use in the Paris fire brigade.
Tlie Vaullln llenu.
The vanilla is the product of the fruit
pod of a creeping orchid of the West
India islands and South America, but
although the supply is not at all scarce
nature has supplied a bogus article in
a plant called vauillos, or botanieally
Vanilla pouipona.

No Fee For Railroad Cor

IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.
Burlington & Southeastern Railroad
Refused to Pay When Assessed.
Position Sustained. .
Montpelier, Sept. 20. Besides being
capitalized at a large figure the articles of
association of the Burlington and South
eastern R. R., recently filed at the secreta
ry of state's office, brought out the inter
esting information that a railroad is not
obliged to pay the tax imposed upon other
corporations for riling.
The eapital stock of the new corpora
tion is placed at $l,o00.000, of 15,000
shares of $100 each. The road proposes
to run from Mallett's Bay through Col
chester, Burlington, Shelhurne, Bristol,
Middlebury, PitWlield, Rochester, Bridge
water, Woodstock, Hartland to Windsor.
Spur tracks will be run to Queen City
Park and Shelbunie Plain. The directors
are L. S. 1 hew of .Scuth Bnrlington, Ed
mund C. Mower and F. O Sinclair of Bur
lington, Robert Avery of Brooklyn, N. Y.,
and Daniel Patrick of Hinesburg.
When the directors "applied at the secre
tary of state's otliee for tiling their papers
they were informed that the oharge would
be $500, to which they demurred. An ex
amination of the laws of the special ses
sion of 181)8 showed that the incorporators
were richt and that railroads were not in
cluded in the list of corporations which
have to pay for filing papers.

AN AUTUMN COTILLION.
Young Ladles of llarre Scored Decided Son
ce Last Evenlug.
The prettiest social affair of the season
and one that it would be difficult to im
prove upon was the "autumn cotillion"
given by many of the young ladies of the
city at Miles' hall last evening. The time
from 8 30 to 12 was passed most enjoyably
by 40 couples of young people.' The usual
order was reversed this time and the young
men were invited by the ladies, and the
whole arrangement of the dance was in
charge of the latter who scored a decided
success.
The hall never was more tastily trim
med, the decorations being in keeping
with the season. Autumn leaves relieved
tbe bareness of the walls, red, white and
yellow crepe paperj were strung across
the top and mirrors set into the decora
tions heightened the effect. The orches
tra platform was a mass of plants and
Bowers, with palms and hydrangias par
ticularly noticeable. Across the front of
the platform was a railing of green crepe
paper, while at either side "cosey cor
ners" had been deftly arranged with por
tiers, curtains, easy chairs, etc.
In one of these corners light refresh
ments were served during the dancing by
Miss Shirley Bradford and Miss Esther
Mndgett. The refreshments consisted of
wafers and fruit punch.
The dance order, a dainty souvenir in
yellow cover, contained 20 regular danced,
and several extra were added. Wilder's
orchestra of four pieces furnished excel
lent music which the dancers enjoyed as
usual.
The young ladies who s-howed so much
ability in arranging for an enjoyable time
were lvis Averill, Bessie Ayera, Blanche
Bradford, Maude Ayers, Lena Wheaton,
Nellie Stouphton, Florence Parker and
Eula Averill.
