An Italian romance was told in the city court to-day before a crowded house and Judge Burpee. Antoinette De Greza, whose nationality was pleasantly pictured in her fair face and dark eyes, was charged by Anthony Rosie with assaulting him. Iiosie is a big, burly fellow countryman of the accused. He is a barber" on Bank street ami lives at 3S'J River street. On Thursday afternoon Antoinette entered the complainant's baroer shop, accord ing to his story, and demanded from him a picture she had given him some years ago. He refused to give it and thought to escape his visitor's anger by going out by the rear door. But Antoinette was too quick for him. and lucking up a stout piece of wood, she threw it at him, striking him in the neck and breaking his hat. Antoinette's story put an entirely different complex ion upon the matter. Flushing with indignation, while her eyes Hashed fire at Rosie, she said that years ago Rosie wooed her and they exchanged photo graphs. After a year or so she visit ed Italy and soon after her return here she married. That was two years ago. Repeatedly since then she has tried to get her picture from him, but in vain. He was seriously disappoint ed when" she got married and he took satisfaction in circulating stories about her. So Thursday she made up her mind to get her picture and silence Ijo-sie's- slanderous tongue, with the re sult already known. Rosie did not deny that he has the girl's picture, and on that account she was discharged. Rosie refused to surrender the picture to Chief Egiin, not that he cares any more about it. but for some other rea son, so that the only way Antoinette can get it back is by a civil suit. Anthony Stine was lined $15 and costs for assaulting his wife yesterday. ThTe Stines live at 47 North Leonard street. The four boys charged with burglary on live counts were next put on trial. They are George Fretts, aged 37; George Hennessey, IU; John Downs, TO: and John Brennan, 3.8. They were brought into the court handcuffed to Sheriff Rigney, showing that the lat ter determined to take no more chances with prisoners charged with a state prison offense and that the occurrence which took place at the depot some lime ago upon the opening of the crim inal term of the superior court here, should not be repeated. Downs and Fretts pleaded guilty, the other two not guilty. The boys were tried on one count only, that concerning the breaking into of John Lucas's store iu Waterviile. There are four other counts against them. Hennessey and Fretts made statements. The former's was to the effect that he was merely in the company of the others and that after playing a few games of pool in Waterviile, they went to a hay mow and fell asleep. About 1 o'clock in the morning Hennessey was awakened by the other: liirhlinsr a lire, and two of them said they would go to the." 'vi, for water. They went away and when they returned they said that they had "been through" some of the stores. Thereupon they divided the swag, which consisted of barbers' supplies, cigars, rings, dice, knives and an as sortment of tilings that can only be found In country stores. In view of the probable situation before them they were loohsli boys to break into the stores for all they got out of them. The price of the whole lot of stuff they stole would not buy one of them a fair suit of clothes for the winter. Probable cause was found against, them and they were bound over to the next term of the superior court under a bond of 5500 each. YALE COLLEGE PRIZES.

Most supervisors of music in this country are deeply 'interested in tho problem of music iu uie High school. The existing conditions arc very unfav orable to progress, i. e., oe period in two weeks, and the fact that most of the pupils must make up lessons lost while singing. In order to awaken interest in mu sic and give more time for practice, tho Boys' Glee club was started. All of the practice was done out of school hours, the boys coming willingly once a week and giving up many pleasures iu so doing. All of the teachers ad mired this spirit among the boys, and they received commendation on all sides. With Cue proceeds of their concert, the Boys' Glee club furnished the stage of assembly hall with a nice suit of I furniture and a pair of portieres. The Girls' Glee club also meet out side of school hours and spend many j en.ioyabie and profitable hours. They : become familiar with many excellent 1 compositions, thus educating them to ' appreciate tho work of the best com posers. The Glee club intend to ac quire an extensive repertoire this win ter and be ready to render these pieces as occasions arise. j Three selections which will be sung bv them. Monday. November 20. are "The Rustic Dance." tne "Skippers of j St Ives" and the "Lost Chord." The 1 first is a familiar dance tune, the sec j end is in the comic vein and the last is deeply religious. DEATH AT THE STAKE. Fiendish Crime Avenged by Citizens of Limon, Colorado. LIMON, Colo., Nov. 17,-jChaincd to railroad rail set firmly in the ground on Jhe exact spot where his fiendish crime was committed, Preston Porter, Jr., or, as he was familiarly known, John Por ter, last evening paid a terrible penalty for his deed. It was 0:23 o'clock when the father of the murdered girl touched the match to the fuel which had been piled around the stake, and 20 minutes later a last convulsive shudder told that life was extinct. What agony the doom ed boy suffered while the ilames shriv eled up his fiesh could only be guessed from the terrible contortions of his face and the cries he gave from time to time. The executioners, who numbered about 300 citizens of Lincoln county, had not the least semblance of the ordinary mob. Their every act was dedibprate, and dur ing all the preparations, as well as throughout the sutxerings of the negro, hardly an unnecessary word- was spoken. Grimly they stood iu a circle about the fire until the body was entirely consum ed, and thou quietly they took their way back to Limon, from where they depart ed to their homes shortly afterward. Preston Porter did uot seem to realize the awful punishment that he was des tined to undergo. As 'he had exhibited indifference to the enormity of his crime, so he seemed to lack all understanding of its terrible consequences. For more than an hour, while preparations for his execution were in progress, he stood mute and sullen among the avengers. When everything was ready he walked to the stake with a firm step, pausing as he reached the circle of broken boards to kneel in prayer. He was allowed to take his time. He arose and placed his back to the iron .stake, and half a dozen men wound chains about hi3 body and limbs. Keros. ue oil was applied to the wood, and ai.er a brief pause Richard W. Frost, i he father of little Louise Frost, whose cruelly mutilated body was found one week ago ou that very spot, applied a match. Throughout the entire affair but little was said. As they had calmly prepared for the avenging, so the people of the eastern part of the state carried out their plan coolly aud deliberately. There was not a hitch in the entire proceeding. Not a weapon was drawn. There was no angry discussion. After the fire had hurued low they told each other good night, and they went home. They did not stop to discuss the affair. The train bearing the negro in custody, of Sheriff Freeman and his deputies ar rived in Limon at 3:45 p. m. The cars were crowdsd with newspaper reporters and people who were curious to see the negro executed. R. W. Frost, the mur dered girl's father, was one of the pas sengers. When the train stopped, It" men wh,o had been selected by the vigi lance committee entered the train and demanded the prisoner from the sheriff. Their erery action was marked by calm ness and determination. The officer pro tested in the name of the law and asked the men to allow him to-take his prisoner to the county jail nt Hugo, but his pro tests were disregarded.
