17 years of age, has made one cir

on his second tour. He landed in

on the train for the Black Hills.
The agents along the line are all
on the watch for the dog, and
after he has gone as far west as the
owner desires, he will start for
home. Owney is a very intelligent
dog, being able to discriminate a
mail wagon from any other. When
he gets tired of one town he
catches the mail wagon, rides to
the depot, gets into the mail car
and is in this manner making his

ing of Mrs. J. M. Fost.of Salina, Kan
Wednesday night is not abating.
Monday two negroe9 were arrested
at Brookville, each answered in
some particular to the description
given by Mrs. Fost of her assaulter.
They were brought to the city and
lodged in jail. All night a mob
surrounded the jail guardiugto see
that no attempt should be made by
the officers to remove the prisoners
to a place of safety. Many represen
tative citizens were in the crowd
and the purpose of the mob was
plainly to uscertain us quickly as
possible whether or not either of
the prisoners was guilty of the
outrage. The officersatteinpted by
a bogus telegram purporting to
come from Solomon City and coti-
tainuing the alleged information
that the real criminal had been
surrounded at Solomon City, and
asking that as many men as could
be secured at Salina should be sent
down to assist in capturing the
criminal, to create a diversion, but
the crowd, fearing that the telegram
might be true and yet suspected it
to be u scheme, appointed a strong
guard to surround the jail, and the
remainder were taken to Soloman
City on a special train. On arriving
they discovered the telegram
to be a ruse and returned at once
to Salina, where they guarded the
jail until moruing. Tuesday morn
ing Mrs. Fost arrived at the jail
and stated positively upon seeing
the negroes that neither were guilty
and they were released. At a
later hour in the afternoon a man
was arrested at Caldwell, 200 miles
south answering the description
of Mrs. Frost's assailant. The
sheritl has gone for tke prisoner,
and it is felt confident that he is
the criminal. He will be hanged
immediately if identified by Mrs,
James W. Hamilton, colored ex
preacher and convicted of wife
murder, was electrocuted in the
prison at Sing Sing Monday at
11 o'clock. The crime for which he
suffered the penalty was the
premeditated murder at Wiufield,
Long Island, in May, 1892, of Annie
Brooks, a pretty colored girl whom
he betrayed and was forced to
marry three years before. They did
not live together, and Hamilton
tried in vain to secure a divorce
from her. He expressed a deter
mination to get rid of her, decoyed
her from Flushing, L. I., where she
was employed, to Wiufield, where
he cut her throat. Death was in
stantaneous and unlike all former
excutions there was only one con
tact oi ine eiectroaes. mere was no
scorching or scalding of the skin
or steaming at the electrodes, and
produced the moat successful
results yet carried out.
mis novel prooiem is now
circulating among the newspapers
seeking a solution: A freight train
one mile in length stopped with a
caboose just opposite the depot.
The conductor got orders to move
his train to the next station, which
was just five miles distant He gave
the engineer orders to move, which
the latter did, while the conductor
walked over ahead on top of the
cars and got there just as the en
gine arrived at the next station
where he got off. The question is
how far did he walk, or as he was
walking the entire five miles, did he
ride at all?

Director General Davis said last
Sunday that the week had been very
satistactory as tar as the receipts
of exhibits were concerned. "We
received more than during any pre
vious week," he said, " and were in
formed that large shipments
would arrive early this week. The
exhibits have been put in place
promptly, and I can say that our
part of the work is not lagging.
We look for a number of big ship
ments this week, and my depart
ment cruets are ready to receive
them. There is nothing to indicate
now that all the exhibits will not
be in place on May 1."

We are indebted to the correspon
dent of the Times in Paris whose
happy function it is to furnish ar
tistic news about artistic toilettes to
readers (of the correspondent's
sex?), for authoritive information
that the reign of crinoline is not
yet. This cheerful intelligence
comes from two ery high sources,
one the supreme French dress
maker of his time, and the other an
Kuglishman of equally undoubted
supremacy. As is characterastic ol
the respective races, perhaps, that
the Englishman says that crinoline
will not be used, and cites the de
cisive fact that "twelve" note the
proud exactuess of this numeral,
not a dozen, nor any vagut expres
sion ot number, but precisely
twelve "royal personages" whom
he has had the honor to wait upon
for instructions as to their ward
robes have not mentioned crino
line. Ou the other hand, the
Frenchman says with equal pride
and authority, but ot different kind,
that crinoline shall not be used. He
will not permit it. Has he not giv
en his precious time and his inval
liable talents giadually and firmly
to lead the daughters of Kve to a
style ot wearing apparel which if
not so simple as that of their great
ancestress, shall at least not con
fuse and pervert the noble lines of
inherited from her? And shall he
now, in the hour of his triumph,
when feiminine charmsjto thejremo
test ends of the earth enjoy the aid
and enchantment of his art, submit
to see them subjected to this hid
eous and monstrous defilement
called crinoline.' Thousands of
thunders and n uuesof all mention
able things! Jamais? jamais! Both
of which assurances we accept with
profound relief. If royalty, inherit
edor earned, forbids crinoline, the
common sense of our republican
women may be left free to reject it
