ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE CRIM INALS OF HI3 TIME. A Dkrina and Coolness That Have Seldom Been Equaled ITunRed at Uitt For Mor der Tho Ileflned and Tlous Woman Who Mourned lilnu There lived in this city nntil a few years ago, and may bo living hero etill, a frail, careworn littlo woman whose Ufo bad been linked with one of tho most unhappy arid yet most interesting romances iu tho oitmtls of this centu ry's crinio. Shb was tho wifo of John Clark, ono of tho most remarkable crim inals uf I1Í3 timo. Although a thorough ly respoctabla, well educate ! aud hiyU mindod woman und a duvout member of the church, Bho lived with liiui for years, tried her best to reform him, sought to r"t(,ct hiia from tía oíIU-ora who vero over cn his trail and was faithful to him to tho end. Clark was tho son ef n prorrrons ' business man in Koo.hekter. VVhuu he was a boy, ho fiRured in nil Rorts of ' wild escapades, was arrested several times for small oCfeusc and had devel oped into a professional crook before ho was 20 years old. Ono of bis most nota blo traits was his love of tüí'play. He was small mid slender, with clean cat feutnres and black, curling lir.ir. Ho al ways woro a silk hat, a low cut vest, whito kid gloves and small, pointed shoes that pinched his tiny fuet. Ho al so woro ocveral lnrgo diamonds on hia finders and thirt front. ?lien ho vaa i still very youiiR, bat long after his rep- ; utatioa had made hlai u terror to tho town, ho eloped with his cousin, a beautiful yomm girl, carefully reared. It was a short Loaeymoon. The authori ties woro tno hot on l.is trail to allow him to prolong his Etay with his wife, so, leaving her with friends, ho Bet out again on his travels. From that timo until his death his visits to his wife vero far opart aud uncertain., lie was too busy carryiuK out hia buhl plana for robbery to Gtuy long in tho towu. Jailer John Cav.-thra of Rochester, . who knew Clavk well and was present when ho was handed iu th-r.t town, iu conversation recalled the dosprruda "Clark was tho nerviest ir.uu I ever ! knew," Enid tho oM j;itler. "When ho i was on cuo of his visits in Rochester, he ' was walking one day through tho ar cado, ritfht in tho center of tho town. . ...u ...... j...,, clothes and handoino face ho was very couspicnoas. lo was walking with u pirl ha was a '.rcit uiuu for t!ie girls and ho was twirling a cigarette in his mouth. A big, strapping man passed thorn, looked back into the pill's Caco aud smiled. That anyersd Clark. With out a moment's hesitation he drew a ru bullet kuocktd oil" two of the imtn's fin gers. Clark wiped tha revolver with his handkerchief, put it back in his pocket, and, tolling tho fiii l to wait a moment, stopped to relight his cigarette. Ho Was as cool as if nothing had happened, m wl yon cau bet the.ro was no ono aronud there who tlarcd touch him. They know ho was John Clark and that ho wouldn't hesitate to (iro again on tho slightest provocation. "Ciarle niado a great deal of money from his robberies. Ho took Komethintj liko 8;S0, 000 out of f.ie..irro, most of it from a hauls. Ho was arretted tn one of I tho southern states aud lodged in jail, but ho escaped before ho had been there a day. Later he was caught tu this city I nud lockod up in tho Tombs, How ha , got out no ono knows to this day. There were charges enough agninst him r.t tho timo to send him to prison for tho reft j of his Ufo. There are those who knew i Clark well who say ho niado at loast $100,000 by robbing honses and banks. Ho was, in my opiuiou, tho most skill ful burglar of his time. I well remem ber ono night when a business man of Rochester was robbed by him. Tho man's hou30 was on East avenno, the best street of the towu. Clark discov- j Tu i . i i . ii erod that he kept a good sized roll of bank notes in his clothes all the time. Tho man was iu tho habit of sitting np far into tho night, and when Clark ap peared on tho seeno to enter tin- house ho discovered tho owner in a oivs lug gown, with his back to tho v. indi.w, ' reading. This discovery, howe.'er, did not discourage Clark. He went away and came back with a loug stick, to which woro fastened a siring and a hook, j Suddenly tho man inside looked up to boo his trousers, with his roll of bills in ' them. Koiug swiftly through tho air and : out of the window. lla must nave thought they were bowitched, for he j toe8i Baladi heans, which always ap oould not seo for tho moment tho string pt,ar; frult nnd suvorni ki,lc- of Bweijts aud the stick. As s.xm as he had rocov- . d tl ün c.lIroa Evorvthim? comos on ercd his eelf possession ho ran out to look for the thief, but it was no usa Clark was far away by that timo. "Clark was cornered iu Rochester at last. He had just returned from one of his long tours of burglary through tho country Vo was soeq coming out ot Confined to f er lied. "My wlfo has been in poor health for a long time and unable to do her work, and a part of tho time' was con fined to her bed. A few months ago she began taking Hood's Rarsaparilla and now she Is entirely well and able to do her work. Wo are grateful for Hood's Saipaparllla." Gabiukl Gkeaoo, St. John's Ariz.
