I wish some one would tell me
if he could, why it is, that when a
criminal commits some particular
ly atrocious crime an interest is
awakened in him that a hundred in
nocent men or women could never
excite. Only a few years ago a
brutal negro strangled a woman
ander particularly horrible circun
stances, and for nearly a year he
poised in prison as a first class
dude; uimiring friends sent him
good clothes. fruit, flowers, ice
cream, and all the delicacies of the
season, not to mention first class
cigars and other like consolations.
Three (lays before his execution a
respectably dressed and not had
looking woman, called to see him,
but was not admitted. She tried
for an entire day to see him but
failed; she had never seen him and
did not know him, and yet when
finally refused wept like a child,
and going out purchas d a basket
of flowers at a cost of five dollars
and sent it in to the murderer, with
her love. This is the very quin
tessence of madness, and yet in
Brooklyn a scene was enacted last
Sunday which makes me think that
some of my colored brothers are
daft. In that goodly city a few
weeks ago they hung a negro mur
derer named Jefferson, one of the
most heartless desperate brutes
that ever paid the penalty of his
crimes upon the gallows. He had
been a terror from his boyhood, a
thief and a drunkard; as far as
could be learned he had not a soli
tary redeeming feature in his t har
acter. IIe murdered two innocent
people and nearly killed two more,
maiming them so that one will be
terribly disfigured for life and the
other, his own brother, will carry
the marks of his injury to his grave.
No sooner was his awful crime
made public, than forthwith an
army of philanthropic cranks be
came interested in Mr. Jefferson.
Ladies called upon him, ministers
of all denominations became fear
ful he might be lost and they all
appeared to be afraid thlat some
body else might save him. Some
kind-hearted-Sisters of Charity at
tempted to pray with and convert
him, bnt the regular chaplain of the
jail seemed to think that he might
just as well die in his sins as have
anything to do with the papists.
Linda Gilbert, who is known as the
prisoner's triend, a sort of crank in
her way, who believes if you find a
man robbing yoin- house, instead of
shooting or arresting him, you
should give him a ten dollar bill
she took up Jefferson's case. Linda
has money, is a true philanthropist;
she does not fool away her loose
change on innocent or unfortunate
people-not she, but let some no
torious scoundrel be guilty of some
terrible crime, the worse it is the
more she glories in her protege, and
until the gallows claims him or
States prison gets him the gentle
Linda will furnish him. with every
good thing that heart of man could
-wish for. Miss Gilbert and many
others became interested in Jeffer.
son; they fought Justice up to the
very last moment, but at last every'
legal resouree had been exhausted
~and Mr. Jefferson departed for the
happy hunting grounds. lHe mag.
nanimoucly forgave all of his cne.
!nies, gave Miss Gilbert his skele
ton, and died certain that the Gol
dJen Gates were opened and ready
to receive him. Some weeks have
> assed since then and last Sunday
a respectable colored clergyman de
nounced the execution of Jefferson
as a judical murder. Tihe colored
people seem to think that there is a
strong prejudice against their race,
and from their efforts to get their
-criminals off', seeum to think that
-tey are entitled to some special
exemption from punishment. It is
about time that this mawkish sym.
jathy for murderers, thieves and
vagabon-1 s generally, were stamped
o>ut, and that more was done by
-these would be philanthropists fox
sufferinlg wretches who have nev-er
had the fortune to knock down a
traveller with a sand bag or havc
seen the inside of a States prison.
There is too much gush over no
torious criminals and too little
interest in those who are not.
- All ihe ef~Ible 1w4# Ate n6t dead
yet. Across the river lives a gen- try
t!ernan by the nam- of Jones, and the
Joncs had a young and beaut-ful to
wife, who was sev:ral years the no,
junior of ,Jones. Near Jones's to
lived one Sylvester Grey who re of
joiced in a most amiale and ex- a I
te'llent wife and three very beauti- a
ful cl,ihlrcu, but it is evident now ki
that .Ir. Sylvester forgot that he ras
was married and for m.:tter of that Ian
so did Mi s. -Jones. but Jones did so,
not. If Mrs. Jones forgot the re- sot
sl)ect an-l fidelity that was due to ing
Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones had a most gra
lively sen,e of what was due to dis
himself. and he made up his mind life
that it would be a remarkably cold ofi
day when he, the aforesaid Jones, ass
got left. On Sunday last Mrs. mu
Jones made up her mind that she exi
would levant with Mr. Sylvester our
Grey, and M r. Sylvester Grey made an3
up his mind that he would fly with ent
Mrs. Jones. Everything was ready, act
the pair stood in the depot ready to has
fly; the conductor had halloed "all f
aboard" and they were just in the is I
act of stepping on the train when
who should suddenly appear on the
scene but Jones-the injured Jones.
Fly and save yo. rself darling, said TIl
Mrs. Jones, and darling flew and
left Mrs. Jones to take care of her- c
self. Did Jones tear his hair, up- c,
braid his wife and try and commit mi.
suicide by stabbing hiimself with a of I
bar of soap? Not a bit of it. and cl1
right here is where Jones show- t
ed his good horse sense. IlIe is
never said a word to Mrs Jones. boo
but he took hold of her and began 11
to strip her of her jewelry. IIe our
lightened her of her watch and li
chain, he took off her bangles, a aj
nice pair of $7() bracelets he slipped lar
in his coat-tail pocket, a necklace wa
made of gold dollars was the next ed
thing that came to hand, finally he in
went for her diamond earrings; this we
was the last ounce on the back of Ire
the dromedary, and Mrs. Jones 'I
fought like a tiger, but it was no l"
us,. Jones evidently meant busi- 1ll
ness, and as ha had the law on his stit
side resistance was useless, so rath- its
er than part with her ears Mrs. .j
Jones let the rings go. Jones evi- in
dently considered that he had all
that was valuable about Mrs. Jones. of
They were love souvenirs that he the
h:tdrpaid for in hard cash in brighter ry
and happier days, and he had io pre
idea that Mr. Sylvester Grey should rea
carry off all that valuable plunder ;ur
with the oth. r movable property. reg
There was no word of reproach, no l
threats. Jones turned on his heel ,
and went quietly back to his work cha
just as if nothing had happened, die
leaving Mrs. Jones to go to Jericho dril
or any other foreign capital which ter,
she found most congenial to her
health. It may be considered fine ate
writing acco ding to the Concord or "rhE
Chautauqua standards, but I say. us
Bully for Jo Ies. I admire Jones. tac

man of the future. ie has shown i.
himself a man of taste and feeling n

Lunatic Asylum scandal.Mrs.Wylie C
the millionaire widow of Trarry
town, who disappeared so suddenly 1
two years ago, it appears has been J
incarcerated in a Private Asylum 3
by her loving relatives all that time. pot
She had an income of 825,000 a tb
year, and her relations wanted to car
spend it for her. They had her de- WE
clared a drunkard, her servants*
were suborned to do it. They then ing
shipped her off to a private lunaticPo
asylum and paid one hundred dol
lars per week to have her kept thet e. foc
of course the doctor who kept this IIb
lunatic paradise was convinced that by
she was mgd as a March hare so rec
long as lhe got a~ hundred dollars a
wek for keeping her. This is the the
saP,ej worthy that kept Prouse e
Cooper in confinement several
years, who is as sane as any man in:
in New York. Mrs. Wylie's rela- ~
tives got hold of all her property fy
and made $i0,000 a year by kceep- tb
ing her in prison. The affsir will m
be before the Courts in a week, and gi,
I hope it may lead to a thorough g4

While waiting for the engraved

story. So long as the workmen felt
that they had no rights save inside
the painted floor line of the space
they were to adorn, the quantity of
glass in the great whitewashed tem

magnitude. But the rush fur space,
and the constant demands for in

in the building, have compelled the
removal of the chiefs, and their lit

The L. & N. Railroad runs by
the Sixth street side of the park,
in which the Art Palace is located,
and the branch road into the
grounds is being occupied pretty
well by the trains of exhibitors
bringing goods. Three hundred car
loads were emptied at the great
doors last year, and I will not ven
ture si conjecture as to the number
to arri.re this year. No definite es
timate can be made from the books,
even in the rare moments that a,
newspaper man can get the use of
them. As to talking to the railway
men unloading cars, or to the work
men busy in erecting pavilions and
exhibition cottages and stands,
more costly than a poor man's home,
that is a risk, because it is so easy
to drop a ton of steam pipe or spare
bit of lumber on the head of the in
quisitive man who seems idle, in
that his only tool is a pencil. There
fore I stand off' and use my eyes,
and find no difficulty in the conclu
sion that a finer and much better
arranged exhibit will greet the vis
itor of 1884, although many a de
lighted person said in 1883, "They
never can beat this."

The Warren Memorial Church have
taken possession of the big organ i
that they bought last year, clearing I
a needed space, and thereby pleas
ing the majority, to whom the music
of a big crgan is neither new norj
pleasing. It stood just in the pas
sageway to the Park, the Art Gal
ery, and the Fire-Works Ground,:
and so did the indoor music plat
form. No one ever thought that
there were several wide ways for the
crowd to go around, and the crowd
never got the idea that it could get
around by any other way. There
fore in the softest whispers of some
divine music, or amid the trills of:
some great r,inger. came the dulcet
tones of some fat African wencif.

Harris County, which is gaining an
unenviable notoriety for deeds of
violence. In Apple Va*ley, in that -
Cointy. lives a colored man named
Sydney Hall and his wife, a woman
considerably his junior. He has
been jealous of her for some time,
and so embittered her life that
there was no love lost between
them. On several occasions Hall
claims that his wife had-put poison
in his tea and that he lived in con
stant dread of his life. When,
yesterday evening, Hall went to his
employer. Judge Anderson, and
told him that "de ole woman would
hodder him no more now," the
Judge had no conception of the
terrible dead which had been com
mitted. He went with iall to
his cabin, and there on the bed lay
the body of the dead woman, her
head having rolled off on the floor,
which was covered with blood. ."I
done it, boss," said Hall, without a
quiver. "She won t bodder us no
more now." The fiend then gave
a circumstantial account of how he
killed her.
Two weeks before, he said, his
wife had made her last attempt to
poison him. He then made her
di ink some of the tea, which sick
L ened her considerably. Yesterday
afternoon he chided her with some
new evidences of infidelity, to
which her-only response was that
he would get a good dose of tea
V when he was not thinking about it.
She then went to bed for her even
ing nap. Hall said he sat there
e until he saw she was fast asleep,
and in thinking over his misfortune
he felt almost like killing himself.
e Then came the suggestion, "Why
y not kill her?" Ile tried to fight
the thought down, but could not.
t The idea took possession of his
mind and held him spellbound. At
s last, with a desperate effort, he re
n solved to go out to his work and
escape the temptation. He took up
his axe and went as far as the door. -
e He turned for a moment and looked .
- at his sleeping wife. Then the
desire to kill her became over-pow-.
erinr, and before he was conscious
of what he was do-ng he was beside -
s the bed, had raised his axe and
struck for her neck, cutting it con
t siderably. At the first blow the
woman raised her hand and grasped
f the axe handle convulsively and
Y attempted to raise herself, with her
r head half cut off, as it was. With
a terrible wrench he shook off her
Y hold and she fell back on the bed.
e Another blow completed the work.
a and her head tolled off at his feet.
He then put the axe away, and at
tter ruminating over what he had
done concluded that the best that
- he could do was to tell his mnaster
Lall about it, and he did so.
