Sioi x City, la., Sept. 11. Nine wit nesses were examined in behalf of the sta'e in the Munchrath case today. The two most important witiienses were Unit ed States District Attorney T. P. Murphy and IL L. Leavitt. The latter testified that Munchrath was one of the most ac tive members among the saloonkeepers who planned to assault and beat Had dock because of his conduct in the liquor prosecution. He testified further, that Munchrath was watching for the return of Haddock to the livery stable, and that he himself and Muuchrath stood within arms length of each other, while John Arensdorf walked out from the crowd lying in wait for Haddock, and shot him. Hon. T. P. Murphy testified that he was riding home in a hack a few minutes befre the murder, and within one-half a block from where the murder occurred the hack was hailed by Munchrath, who said to Murphy: "This is not the hack I am looking for." Several other wit nesses testified that Munchrath was in the crowd who are alleged to have been pre sent at the murder and that just five min utes before the murder he was at Junk's s-doon, from which the crowd left imme diately on notice that Dr. Haddock's buggy had returned to the livery stable. To Start a Bulky Home. A big, fine looking, high stepping, head in the air, nervous horse was driven down Central street attached to a buggy in which were two men. There was a blockade of teams in front of the theatre for a moment, and when the way was cleared again the horse would not budge. His driver told him to go on, but he didn't move. The other man got out and tried to lead him, but he was as im movable as though his legs had been driven into tho ground. The driver began to lose his temper and took up the whip, when a horsey looking man came from the rear of the theatre, and taking in the situation at a glance said: "Hold on a minute; I'll start you." He went to the rear ol tho buggy and pushed it steadily against the horse. The horse found it necessary to take a step forward, that step led to others, and he trotted olE down the street as easily as need be. "It's no use to try to lead a horse like that, or to thrash him," said the horsey man. "He is green. He never has been driven much, and don't know what is wanted off him." "Worcester Telegram. A Feat of Engineering. The Sukkur bridge has just been com pleted at the works of Messrs. Westwood, Laillie ct Co., London j-ard, Poplar. The bridge, which is on the cantilever prin ciple, is to be constructed over the Kohri pass of the Indus, at Sukkur, on the line of railway from Kurrachee and Attock. A noticeable feature about the work is the erection of probably one of the finest pieces of scaffolding which has ever been built, and which has been a conspicuous object on the banks of the Thames at Poplar and for miles around. It i3 400 feet long by 120 feet wide, and 180 feet high, with about 2. GOO loads of timber, wliich, if laid out, would measure 24 lineal miles, the weight of the bolts, nails and other ironwork leing about 40 tons. Tho contract has taken about two years to complete, the bridge having to be temporarily erected at the works pre vious to being sent out to India. Chi cago Times. Wouldn't Fight a Duel. Maj. Hinze, a retired officer of the Prussian army, has been tried before a court of honor of the army corps of tho guards, and deprived of his military title and uniform, because he failed to chal lenge a political opponent who, in tho heat of a general election, cast an impu tation upon his military honor. He not only failed to challenge his defamer, but prosecuted liim in a regular court of law and obtained his punishment. What makes this case bo strange is that the criminal code of the empire forbids the challenging to a duel with deadly weapons on pain of fortress imprisonment for si montlis, and this applies to both military men and civilians. Maj. Ilinze re buked for two offenses for not violating the law, and for having resorted to the courts for redress of a wrong. This find ing of the court of . honor was approved by the emperor. The Argonaut. Dancing a Dum-a-Hum. The Piute Indians at Lovelock will shortly hold a pine nut dance and a solemn "hum-a-hum" (song prayer). This is because of their thankfulness to "Pah-ah" (the good God who sends water) for the abundant crop of pine nuts with which he has this season favored liis red children. The pine nuts are not at Lovelock, but far away in the moun tains, where the pine orcliards have escaped the ax of the white vandals. In the Table mountain range are still left many virgin groves. After the dance and "hum-a-hum" the Indians will go to the groves and gather the nuts. Formerly before the herds of the whites took possession of the ranges they had a dance and a praise song for the harvest of grass seed. The Piute people are very religious in their way.

A BARBER WHO WILL NEVER RE PEAT THE OPERATION. A Willow Who Wasn't Satisfied An "Kngliah" Dude'a Komnnrtrancc-A Colorcl Itarber Dadly Scared by a Corpse A Ten Dollar Job. "That's all right if It's only a hair cut; Just sit up a little straighter. If you wanted a shave I'd havo told you to take Bill's chair over thoro. I couldn't sbavo you you look like that fellow, only you're warmer and not so white." "Like what fellow P "Liko 'a stifF I shaved about two weeks go. Tho mimito you'd shut your eyes I'd get so nervous I might make you as dead as he is. Tho resemblance would bo so strong I couldn't stand it." "That's funny." "Funny! Well, If you'd over shaved a corpso you wouldn't think it was very funny. My heart jumped into rny throat when you stepped into that door. It's over two weelis sinco I've shaved that dead man, and he's beon right with mo ever since. Every time I close my eyes I can seo he's glaring right at me. liis face is as plain before me as yours. Night and day I see it. My skin creeps every time I touch a razor. Every time I touch anything cold I shudder. I can feel his cold, clammy skin yet. I wilL never forgot tho horrible sensation of tho moment I touched his face with tho razor. I felt I was commit ting a sacrilego. I felt guilty but of what I could not answer. If I live to bo 100 years old I'll never forgot that experience and I'll never shave a dead man again." SHAVED DOZENS OF DEAD HE!?. "Oh, pshaw I Charlie, you're foolish," said another barber, "I've uliuved dozens of dead men and never saw a ghost. I'd rather shavo a 'stiff than a crank any day, for these rea sons: You get paid more, they don't bleed if you cut 'em and they never grumble at your work. I've been paid as high 83 $10 and never less than $3. That is the regular price and I won't take les. I've seen lots of fanny things in this end of our business. Loss than two weeks ago I went to a house not 1 ,000 miles from Washington park. I hud finished the job and was packing my traps when the dead man's wife I mean widow camo in. Sho walkod over to the corpse, examined the face closely, and was turning away with a sort of satisfied look, when suddenly she gave a shriek, and cried liko a professional " 'What's tho matter, madamer I asked. " Why, you-you mean thing. Yr u've p-p-p-parted his h-hair on tho wrong s-side boo I hool' "Another time I went to an aristocratic resi dence on Michigan avenue; I won't tell you tho number because it wasn't very long ngo. Tho dead man's brother was in the room with me one of these alleged English dudes, you know, who talk through their noso and lisp like a woman. The first stroke I made on tho neck of tho corpse caused his brother take a conniption. " 'Now. now, now; stop that, I say, stop that,' ho lisped. 'Aw-aw donchuno that's not right You musn't shave the neck up; you must shave it down. If you shave it up tho hair will grow up and curl tho wrong way, don't you know, and he can never part it nice again like it is now.' "I looked at the man and saw he was in earnest, and I tried to keep my face straight, but it was pretty hard work. The idea of shaving a corpso so ho could part his whis kers nice afterward! "A funny thing happened once when I was working in Pittsburg, Pa. Ono night a rich iron man died on Oakland avenue, and a col ored barber went to fix him up. When he had shaved one side of tho face it was neces sary to turn the corpse over. I suppose there was some air in tho lungs, but anyway, when he turned him over the corpso gave an awful groan. Tho 'coon' dropped the razor and let oat a yell that brought the whole household to the spot on the run. Before anybody got there the darky was out of tho house and down the avenue as if the 'old boy' was after him, and at every jump he let out a screech. When one of the men went into tho room he saw the razor and nearly half of tho left ear of the corpse lying on tho floor. "Tho razor had just happened to strike it when the darky dropped it and ran. A doctor was sent for, who sowed tho car on, and then ho sent for mo. I finished shaving the man and left the house with a crisp $100 bill in my pocket." Inter Ocean. Standing by tho Toucher. The State Register of Springfield, His., relates the following curious experience of Dr. Lameroux, of Eldon, la. The doctor is a physician alxjut 40 years old, who in his youth was of an adventurous turn. At one time he found himself teaching school down in the Cherokee country, in a schoolhouse which his own hands had helped to build. ' On one occasion, having offended a number of young Cherokee bucks by promising them a "good square lick ing" for some infringement of his rules, he discovered that his pupils had come to school armed to the teeth, intending, as he expresses it, to "do him up," if he attempted to carry out his threat. lie immediately dispatched a secret messenger to inform the parents of the young men of the state of affairs, and ask their attendance at the school. They soon came, and the schoolmaster addressed them in a few explanatory words. He said that the young men had disobeyed the rules, and must take their punishment or leave the school. The old bucks, after consulting together, agreed to stand by the teacher, whereupon the refractory pupils were one by one dis armed and punished. The pistols, knives and other weapons made quite a pile in the center of the room. Some time after this the school gave an exliibition, which is said to have been the first school exliibition ever held in Indian territory, at which about 1,500 Indians were present. Many of them came days lieforehand, and camped on the spot to await the great event. Youth's Companion.
