Her Criminal Calandor Comas to
the Front With two Crimes in
Suicide and Attempted Murder
Smlnay was a of suicidal and
criininal excitement for Elmwood, a Cuss
county town about thirty-four miles
southwest of Platt.-moutli. Sunday
about noon Coronor Ilunry IJoeck re
ceived the following telegram from Elm
wood "Man found dead, shall wc take
body to undertaker! Come at once.
Answer. A. li. Dickson."
Ir. IJoeck and Deputy Sheriff Miller,
in reApomie to tho telegram, left in a
buggy at 1 o'clock Sunday for Elmwood,
and arriving there at 7 o'clock in tho
evening found the town iu a state of sub
siding excitement over the suicide of
Peter McGoff, a former M. 1'. section
foreman there, but the excitement soon
broke out afresh over the report that
David I lite, an old farmer living sit
mil as northwest of Elmwood had been
shot with intent to kill.
The deputy sheriff and coronor im
mediately impaneled a jury and called
and swore in witness and held the in
quest which lasted till 10 p. m. Sunday.
The witnesses were John W. Osborne,
Wm. K. Fisher, Dr. A. It. Ilobbs, W. A.
Swerenger, Alfred Pyzer; and II. Inman
and John McGuire body watchers. The
corouor's jury consisted of A. J. Kalnn
son, Ellis E. Qood, I. T. Jamison, J.
Chapman, Chas. G.Bailey, L. K. Parmele,
II. Hoeck, coronor. and C. D. Clapp,
clerk. The suicide was committed
in the graveyard, near the grave
of his wife who was burried last
Friday. Murks could easily be seen
where he hid Iain on the grave of his
wife, but before death came ho had
wandered away about two rods, and was
found face down with one leg cramped
up under him and both bauds clutched
full of dead grass. McGofTs wife had
been sick for thrcu months, during which
tisue he had often declared he would kill
himself if she died, at one time procur
ing a revolver and saying it was to take
his life with. On his person was found
the following letter addressed to his
fathcr-iu-law, Mr. Allred Pyzer;
Dear Father: I cannot stand this
trouble any longer. I have nothing to
lire for now. When you get this note I
will be with Nora. Settle all my debts,
if you can, and bury me by the side of
my wife and baby. P. McGoff.
Get my old friend Jim Green to assist
From the evidence given tho jury
found the following verdict:
Peter McGoff came to his death some
time during the night of April IS, A. D.
at the Elmwood cemetery, by tak
ing carbolic acid and belladona, admin
istered by his own hand. In testimony
whereof the said jurors have hereunto set
their hands the day and year aforesaid,"
Tlu remains were found early Sunday
morning and were buried yesterday.
TIIK ATTEMPTED MCKDER
occurred aboqt noon Sunday, and, as
near as could be ascertinedj the facts
are as follows : David Ilite is an old.
but large proportioned, farmer, well
known and quite well fixed, living six
miles northwest of Elmwood, near the
Belletkont postoffice. In his employ was
Joseph Marsh, a rather light built fellow.
Sunday morning Ilite and Marbh had a
"scrap" and Ilite got the better of Marsh,
and the latter left the frm. About 1
o'clock in the afternoon Marsh returned
to the farm in a buggy with Jessie Moon.
Ilite was out feeding the hogs; Marsh
alighted from the buggy and walked to
save oaeriiesl their confidence and whether or not in any case K have
n tm -A HI
as any hrst-elass house coum expect to carry,
; the pen where Mr. Ilite was nnd pulled
a reyolver and opened fire on him. The
first hhot passed through the upper mus
cle tif the left arm, and at the second
shot Ilite dodged and the ball glazed his
right ear. Marsli retreated to the buggy
and drove toward Aslilajd. When the
nVws was brought to Elmwood in the
evening, Constable John McGuire started
in pursuit of the criminal. Marhis des
cribed as a man five feet ten inches high,
weight 1G0 pounds.

Their FatO Still In DOUbt.
New York, April 16. There is dj
news of the misiing steamer Danmark.
The question that now occupies the
minds of marine men is, when will the
National ship Denmark arrive and will
she bring news of the Denmark? The
National steamship is now two days and
several hours overdue. There is a pos
sibility that the delay of the Denmark is
due to her having collided with the
Danmark. The National line steamer
Denmark left London March 30. The
Thingvalla steamer Danmark left the
port of Christiana, March 20. The ves
sels could not, therefore, be far apart
when the latter was seen waterlogged by
the City of Chester. Several ships came
into port today, but so far none of them
bring the wished for news.

The most remarkable man of our time
is tho Hon. W. E. Gladstone great in
statesmanship, great in finance (ho won
his bpurs of political knighthood as
chancellor of exchequer), great in ora

this octogenarian finds time to do so
much, and to do everything so well, is a
IIo has recently published an article
on "The Future of the English Speaking
Haces." It reads like a chapter in the
One hundred years ago the English
speaking peoples of tho world numbered
15,000,000. These were distributed thus:
In Great Itritain, 12.000,000; in American
and other foreign lands. 3,000,000. Today
tho number has multiplied seven fold
and stands at 105,000,000. Mr. Gladstone
quotes the eminent statistician. Bar ham
Zincke, as authority for the statement
thatacentury hence the English srieakers
of the globe will number 1,000,000,000,
distributed as follows, viz.: In the Brit

Jeffrey Very Soft Uearted.
Did I know Jeffrey? One of bis quali
ties was to bo always in love. Sydney
Smith used to talk about Jeffrey's
l seventy-two loves, and at that time put
mo at the top of the list. He was cer
tainly very adoring for a time, but he
fell off in consequence of my taste for
Germany and German literature, which
(being completely ignorant of it) he
could not bear. Ho wrote absurd criti
cisms on Goethe, whom he treated as le
dernier des absurdes. But Jeffrey was
i kind, generous, an excellent friend and
! had great talents. Saray Austin to

"It is curious," remarks William Phil

Ills Flac of Truce.
A young man of nawkinsville, Ga.,
sncl !;:s "best girl" quarreled some days
ago, and remained "at outs" with each
other until tho young man relented and 1 r
began to devise some plan to "makeup."
He finally decided to try the effects of a
flag of truce, and cutting a delicate piece
of white ribbon into the shape of a mini-
ature flag, he sealed it in a sweetly per
fumed envelope and forwarded it to his
j fair enemy. It had the desired effect.

I Metals la the Sun.
Of the metals discovered in the sun the
most important are sodium, magnesium,
barium, acalsium, zinc, copper, alumi
, num, nickel, chromium and iron. Many
1 of the rarer and less known metals would
also appear to be there in some abund
ance, judging by the facility with which
their presence may be detected. Al
. though heavier metals, such as platinum
and gold, have not been seen, it by no
means follows that they are absent.
Their weight would prevent them being
easily found by the spectroscope. New
