A woman, accompanied bjr two small
children, waa seen up-n tbo ktrect last
Saturday night with a shawl over her
hcatl and apparently fret-ting, aa ahe was
rerj thinlj clad. The reporter noticing
that the woman wu in distrcaa, asked
her to explain her tr..uMe. She informed
him that her huthaud's uame waa Ilenrj
June, and rhat he worka on the streets
hfre oh a teamster. She also a-iid that
for tho past twenty yara he hau treated
her ahanu-fully, heating her severely at
times, anl he i-nly left the house at that
time became he had pulled off his coat
and wan about to beat her again. She
ha endeavored, to tho beat of her ability,
to support her children and clothe them.
She lias worked like a slave for years,
and endured the abuse as long as possi
ble. She was rtqucbtad to interview the
police, which ahe did. She then asked
them to go to her Jjouie and talk with
her husband. They urged her to file a
complaint, promising her that they would
arreat the man as soon as possible. She
refused to do so, for the reason, sh said,
that she had respect for the children and
did not want the trouble brought into
ccurt. This same mau id said to have
lived in the city for years, and at the last
election voted for the removal of the
count v seat t Weening Water. If the
woman's statement be tru, the man
should be treated accordingly.

Three empty freight cars were
thrown from the track over the river
bank into a dilapidated heap immediately
north of the U. & M. depot, late Satur
day night. A fly switch was being
made and the cars were running rapidly
when a brake beam of one of them
dropped to one side of one of the cars.
The beam worked as a pry and hoisted
the car from the trucks, leaving them
atand on the track and sending the car
plunging over the bank. Two other cars
which were coupled to that were pulled

We breakfasted on a bit of chocolate
cake and a sip of wine and a rank and
rough cigar, and after a toilsome inarch,
broken by the chance that the telegraph
wagons happened to bo going our way a
few miles, we reached Gorze some min
utes after 10 o'clock, and saw a French
man hanging by the neck beside a well,
his breast torn by rifle shots a ghastly
spectacle, to warn the people that they
must not pollute the water to prevent
the German soldiery from drinking it.
We pushed on, a shade sickened by an
object so repulsive. A beautiful bronze
Cgure of an angel, tho signal of the
establishment of a benevolent sisterhood,
appeared above low trees on tho right.
There waa a remote rattle of musketry
in tho same direction, and occasionally
the grumbling, beyond wooded hills. f
