whiskers, and lit uiglit entered the house
of Mrs. Lottie I fiat t and shot her twice.
Her motive was jealousy. Mrs. Hiatt, she
believed, hal estranfrcd the affections of
her husband. The Hiatt family, topcthci
with Mrs. KlizalK'th Holman, Mrs. Lottie
Hiatt's mother, lives about a quarter of a
. mile north of Jordan's store, n little settle
ment eight iniles from Hcio, and at dusk
their home was approached by a man who

Mrs. Holman, aged 82 years, resented
the intrusion and promptly seized a billet
of wixid and gave the Intruder a snug rap
on the face with it, being instantly
knocked down for her temerity. Having
quieted the aged woman, the man turned
tixin Mrs. Hiatt with his six-shooter and
begun firing. One shot went wild, but
the second and third struck the unfortu
nate woman near tho heart and she sank
dying to tho floor. The robber, to make
sure of his work, bent over tho prostrate
woman and shook her violently, to as
certain whether she was dead or not. The
scoundrel fled and Mrs. Hotmail made

announcement precipitated a search fur
the young man, who was not to be found
until early next morning. When charged

that the hat was his projicrty, declaring

PAS KUAM'Isco, Oct. 1. Sineo tho ad
journment of the Durrant trial last Fri
day tho prisoner's attorneys have visited
Cooper Medical college several times and
have had frequent Interviews with stu
dents whom tliey will put on the stand in
hocs of bracing up the alibi which t lie
defense wants to establish. It Is thought
that several of the college boys will testi
fy to having sei-n tho accused between 1
and 2 o'clock on the afternoon of April 3,
but if ony will give evidence that Dur
rant was in the college until 3:3) in the
afternoon he Is not known. The attorneys
for the defense are building on what K. A.
Digging will testify. Diggins is a mem
lier of the sophomore class, but frequently
attended the senior class lectures.
There ho met the defendant. The lat
tor claims that ho spoke to Digginstlur
ing Dr Cheney's lecture on the after
noon that lllanche Lamont disappeared,
Jmt Diggins' memory is rather hazy.
Charles Lanahan will be called to the stand
to tell of having taken a diamond ring
romcwhnt n-scmbling the one worn by
lllanche Lamont, to Pawnbroker Unpen
heimer. His testimony has little weight,
os he did not visit the store until the aft
ernoon of April 13. Again, Lanahan does
not bear tho slightest resemblance to Dur
rant, and it is not possible that one could
be mistaken for the other. Tlicir dress
was dissimilar and in iersonal apiearanct
they form a strong contrast.

Facie Sam's Only und Privilege toGlve the
Keltels a Chance.
The pith of the resolutions is as follows:
"We, citizens of Chicago, gathered to ex
press our deep sympathy with the CuIkiiis
in their brave struggle to secure independ
ence', present the following.'' The well
known paragraph from the Declaration of
Independence lxgiuning: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident," etc., is then
quoted, and the resolutions proceed:
"'For many unhappy years the Cubans
have been most shamefully oppressed and
cruelly burdened until the yoke of Span
ish rule has become Intolerable. If the
fathers of American independence were
justified in casting off the oppressive do
minion of Great Britain tho Cuban patri
ots of today hnve far greater justification
for their attempt to overthrow the tor
menting, heartless tyranny of the Span

desire to govern themselves. Our Indig
nation is further aroused at the unspeak
able cruelty of the Spaniards toward Cub
ans. On the other hand we are glad to
notice that the courso of the Cubans ap
pears to be more humane. We believe it
to be tho privilege nnd duty of the United
States to recognize the rights of the Cuban
revolutionists as belligerents as soon as
practicable, on being so requested by
competent Cuban authority, in accord

This is a great point to consider. It is not simply the prettiest
shades you want to select. You ought to be sure that they are
fast colors, and won't wash out or fade. We all know how mor
tifying it is to have a suit of clothes which has a different color
where the sun has struck it from the parts that are necessarily in
the shade. You can avoid this trouble by purchasing from us.
We satisfy ourselves that the colors and shades are unfadable, and
we keep a very large selection of them in the best materials that
are now imported from England and France.
