Hugh Houston, a 19 year old led of
Iowa City, who works as newsboy on the
C , R. I. & P. road, was badly cut with
a knife by one White, claiiciog to bail
from Chicago, in a row at Drost's saloon,
on Fourth avenue and Twenty-second
street, last nigbt. Houston's story is
that he and a friend named Donovan, al- j
so from Iowa City, fell in with White and
another man, whose name he does not
know, and drank and shook dice to
gether in the saloon and later went into
back room to play cards. There they
became engaged in a quarrel, during
which While drew a huse knife. They then
went outside and in a fight which ens jed
Houston received a terrible cut along the
side of the bead. Stil'.he was game and
itb his companion succeeded in getting
White down on the pavement adminis
tering him a severe pounding, battering
his face in such a manner that tbe blood
fljwed freely. Finally, however, thev
were separated and Houston, wiih the
gapping wound in his face, from which
tbe blood was (parting as if from a
fountain, was taken by a citizen to the
Four;h avenue drugstore to have hUhe-.d
dressed, and while waiting for the door
to be opened, White who had done the
cutting ran tip behind the man who was
still bleeding profusely from the wounds
which he had received, and struck him
with a brick or rock, agiin knocking him
jown. White was promptly knocked
down by the citizen in charge of Hous
ton, who held him until the police arrived
with the patrol wagon, who took the
pair to the Armory, where Djcit- Paul
and Kinyon attended Houston and stiched
up the gash on his bead which was found
to be about seven inches long. Tbe knife
entered tbe neck just back of the left ear,
and passed under and arjund the ear, cut
ting a little piece from the bottom of tbe
latter and extending up the side of
the face about three inches, and is an
ugly looking cash. The cut on tbe back
of tbe head inflicted by the rock with
which he was hit, proved to be only a
scalp wound, and is not considered seri
ous. The doctors say that bad the cut
under the ear varied the least, it would
have severed the carotid artery and
death would have resulted almost in
Btantaneously. The poctors dressed tbe
injuries and tha sufferer ws made
comfortable and rested well during- the
night, and is consideraby better today

Washixgtox, Sept. 8. As an outgrowth
of the scheme for artificial rain produc
tion artificial frost prevention is now
suggested. L. G. Kuiffeu, of Chicago, has
written a letter to Secretary Kusk on the
subject. His theory is that clouds or ar
tificial mists prevent the radiation of
heat from the earth. He suggests that
the machinery and materials used by Col.
Dyrenfurth in causing rain be teste! as a
means for bringing the clouds closer to
the earth and of creating a sort of fog
which will be a preventative against the
ravages of frost.

Chicago, Sept. 8. In a dingy room at
60 Wesson street Mrs. Lizzie Griffith i lay
last night suffering from bruises inflict
ed by her husband, who then occupied a
cell at the East Chicago avenue station.
The couple were married in Scotland a
dozen years ago. Yesterday morning the
neighborhood in which tbey live was
aroused by cries of "Murder!" "He'.p!"
"He's killing niel" Griffith had his wife
down on the floor choking her when a po
liceman burst in' the door. He had kicked
and pummeled her until she was one mass
of bruises, and blood was flowing from a
dozen wounds. The kitchen door looked
like that of a slaughter house, and the
woman's dress was soaked in blood.
Hard Work to Save Her Lire.
The patrol wagon was called and
Griffith, fighting and blaspheming, was
carried off to the station. A neighboring
doctor was called in and for three hours
lie labored to stop the flow of blood that
poured in torrents from the woman's
head and body. At one time it was
thought she would die. One of the blood
vessels in her nose had been ruptured.
She lay on a filthy bed last night with
her 10-year-old bov beside her. Her face
was terriblv swollen and discolored. She
could not look out of her eyes. Black
rings encircled them. Tbe sheet and
coverlet were blood-bespattered.
Woman, the Incomprehensible.
"My husband," said the woman in a fee
ble voice, "is a gentleman and he'll pay
my doctor bills. The person who sent for
the patrol wagon to take him away was
very impudent. Robert Griffith is as
good a man ever stepped in shoe leather,
and if be beats me it is nobody's business.
This is not the first time he has whipped
me within an inch of my life, but I for
give bim. He's a good man there is none
better in Chicago and the person who
sent for the police had but little to do.
Robert Griffith is a gentleman, and I am
lady enough not to appear against him
in court." Mrs. Griffith is about 40 years
Tbey Tackle the Wrong Customer
Tronble Over the Liquor Question.
Okawville, 111., Sept. 8 Owing to the
disorder at Sunday beer picnics near this
place the church people have begun a cru
sade against the liquor sellers. For the
past two Sundays every saloon in the
town has been closed up, and much bit
terness engendered. Sunday night a
crowd of forty or fifty men on horsehack,
with white caps drawn over their faces,
made visit to the residence of A. Morgan,
a prominent churchman and one of the
wealthiest and most influential citizens of
Washington county. Mr. Morgan was
prepared for them. Wben the whitecaps
surrounded the house and called for him
be opened fire upon the crowd with a
Winchester rifle. Three shots were fired
into the crowd and then it became panic
stricken and fled in disorder.
Attacked by Hired Kuffians.
Sunday morning two strangers got off
the train. Y'esterday morning they hired
a horse and buggy and drove around the
town. They finally met John Tea u beau.
a prominent churchman. They sprang
Iroui tbe vehicle and jumped on the un
suspecting deacon. After beating him in
a horrible manner they sprang into'the
buggy and drove out of town. An un
armed crowd of citizens tried to stop
them, but the strangers pulled revolvers,
and they were allowed to go. The church
people believed that the strangers were
hired to come to Okawville and assault
prominent church members. Deacon
Teaubeau is badly hurt, and his recovery

He left Detroit after being almost

A few days ago a detective came here
from Detroit and will escort Parrish and
his brother to that city.
