A Chlcag o Woman and Her Boy Nephew

Chicago, Nov. '.Mrs. Annie
Schrieber, 88 years old, and her 14-
year-old nephew, Bruno Milke, disap
peared yesterday and were found on a
street of Elgin, III., this morning. The
boy was dead, having been shot
through the head and heart, while the
woman had bullet wounds in the eye
and breast. ,
The affair is a culmination of an in
fatuation between the two which had
lasted for months. A letter written
by Mrs. Schrieber, in which she threat
ened to shoot him if he dared to smile
on any other woman, was found in the
boy's pocket by his father a day or two
ago. Written in pencil on the kitchen
table at the Schrieber home was a mes

Mrs. Fred Vanderbilt's cat, Koko, is
said to have cost, counting original
price paid and cost of importation,
close iipon 81,000. He was born in the
palace of the mikado, and is the most
beautiful, as well as the most costly
cat in this country. Of unusual size,
he is like a maltese cat in color and in
telligence. His mouse-colored coat is
like heavy satin, so rich and showy
and sleek. Every morning he has his
bath and is combed and fed before he
is allowed to present himself in Mrs.
Vanderbjjt's rose-colored morning
room. His breakfast of cream and
grilled bones is served in a delicate
china bowl and soup plate, very like
those used by children for their oat
meal. One of Koko's accomplishments
is the delicate way in which he par
takes ot his meals. He never spills a
drop of cream or touches the delicate
carpet with a piece of meat or bone.

Jerry Simpson Defeats --
Chaster Long. , .
TonntA. Kan.. Nov. 5. Brvan and the fu
sion state ticket have carried Kansas by a
majority that may be anywhere from 8.000
to 16,000.
At Republican headquarters the hone Is
till held out that Morrill and the rest of the
state ticket may be saved, but they back It
with uncertain figure, it is a fact that the
returns so far received put Morrill sllghtly
In the lead of Tweedy, bat from the outset
these returns have shown a steady Repub
lican loss from the vote of 1893. when the
f uslonlsts won the state by 6,000 majority.
To Illustrate: At 11 o'clock complete re
turns had been received from 314 precincts.
giving Morrill 18,679; Leedy, 16,648. This
now a Republican loss in the same pre-
incts on the vote on governor In 1892 of
1,000 and a fusion gain of 25a .
These figure represent about one-ninth of
the total vote of the state and tbe same ratio
of loss and gain kept up to the end would
give the state to Leedy by 12.000 or 15,000.
Brledenthal claims that these returns do not
fairly represent the fusion gains, as they are
from Western precincts where the popula
tion has become so sparse that the fusion
peakers had little room to make converts.
Tbe same 314 preclncU give McKinley 18,-
749; Bryan, 18,028. This indicates a lead of
1,885 by Bryan over Leedy, but an analysis
snd comparison of the returns develops the
probable fact that some, evidently a ma
jority, of the judges of election have either
counted the Bryan and Watson vote for
Bryan or thrown it out entirely. This fact
coupled with the expectation that Leedy
would run somewhat behlml Bryan, ac
counts for Bryan's strong lead over Leedy
In one-ninth of the total vote of the state
beard from. This Is tbe judgment of R. M.
Pulton, who has been tabulatfng election
returns in Kansas since 1890. 1
la the returns from 226 precincts only 174
rotes for Bryan and Watson, 40 for Palmer,
tnd 43 for the Prohibition tickets are re
ported. Chairman Simpson and Secretary Brlstow
refuse to give out anything but the exact
count of precincts. The fusion chairmen
ire not tabulating the returns in such detail,
rhey accept the statements of majorities
telegraphed by their county committeemen
snd have reports of the majorities for gov
ernor in thirty-five counties as follows:
For Leedy Bourbon 800, Butler 800, Clay
$00, Decatur 400, Edwards 100, Ford 40
Franklin 300, Hamilton 35, Jewell 400,Klng

For Morrill Allen 150, Douglas 1,100, Fin-
ley 125, Greeley 60, Jackson 200, Riley 15a
On Congressmen, Breldenthal estimates
the resul as follows: First district, Broder
tea, Republican, 2,000; Third district, Rldg-
y, fusion, 8,000; Fifth district, Vincent,
fusion, 1,500; Sixth district, McCormlck, fu
lion, 2,600; Seventh district, Simpson, fu
lion, 8,000. He regards the. Second and
Fourth as about a standoff, with the chances
Itrongly for Peters, fusion, in the former.
and for Curtis. Republican, fairly good in
the latter. He has little doubt of the elec
tion of Peters and says Madden will win over
Durtis 11 tne latter s majority in Shawnee
county falls below 1,500. ri
In the thirty-five counties Breldenthal has
heard from, he claims the election of 34
nembers of the house and 18 of the senate,
I total of 63. Out of this total he claims a
tain of 34 from the Republicans over the
came representation in the legislature of
1896. He estimates that the legislature will
stand on Joint ballot: Senate: Fusionista
II, Republicans 9; house f uslonlsts 77, Re
publicans 48. Total fuslonlsts, 108;
total Republicans. 57; fusion matoalty.
sn joint ballot, 61. The Republicans are as
little disposed to concede Breldenthal's flg
sres on the legislature as on the state ticket,
but they will make no estimates until they
ihall have received more complete returns,
rhey are not so hopeful of getting the legis
lature, however, as of carrying the state
ticket - '
At 13:30 o'clock, Breldenthal had received
the following additional reports of majori
ties for governor by counties:
Leedy-Leedy, 300; Barber, 146; ClarkTTT;
Straham, 200. Morrill Brown, 350; Marlon,
100. . - -
Governor Morrill ran 100 ahead of McKin
ley in Brown. Fulton, Republican candidate
tor stats senator carried the county by 60.
(n Clark county Harry Bone, Republican, Is
ftef eated for re-election by 7 majority.
Wicarra, Kan., Nov. 4. Bryan has carried

that Seedy rnd the entire fusion state ticket
have carried the county by 600 to 1,000. The

London, Nov. 5. Sir Eichard Tem

affairs since 1846, who was secretary to
Sir John Lawrence, finance minister of
India from 1868 to 1874, and who was
then appointed to superintend the re

wheat can be Janded, at Calcutta
and sold at from eight to nine
seer per rupee. Such a possibility was
never dreamed of in my time. . If this
be true, it will suffice to fill the short

American wheat sold in India at that
price will suffice for the distressed dis
tricts. I do not see the need for the
Eivernment o intervene in this mat

should Immediately verify it if this is
possible. Ami rf so, they should not
Intervene. If the American supply
fatted, then I do not think there is auf

He Wouldn't Be Called "Papa" la Basl-

It is whispered among a certain gay
young set but lately entered into
society that one of its members, a
college graduate, but a regular "mam
ma's boy" fof" all that, is feeling a
trifle sore over an episode that marked
his first day in business.
His father, the president of a prom
inent insurance company' had made
place in the office for his son, and
the young fellow was eager to take it.
It so happened that his first dip into
the great sea of worldly ambition oc
curred on the same day as a meeting of
the directors of the well-known
corporation. .
Being sent on an errand to the
president, the young hopeful burst
into the room where the maarnatea
were assembled and in the familiar
parlance of the home began "Papa "
The august president with a look of
absolute horror, turned to the agitated
messenger, and to the intense amuse-
men of the others present, and to the
everlasting chagrin of the dudelet,
roared out, "I'm not your father at
least in business hours."

Keeaatrlelty ot Character Displayed to
aa English Graveyard.
A remarkable, but werfectlv reliable
story comes from Wales which' throws
a strange light upon eccentricity of
character. In the graveyard of the
parish church at Churchstoke. a small
village in Montgomeryshire, there is to
oe seen a gTavestone which bears an
inscription recording the death of a
maiden lady who, nevertheless is ac
tually living m the village referred
to, and within a short distance of her
Her brothers and sisters died in the
early part of this century, and single
tone announces their deaths. . stood
undisturbed until 1886. when it was
renovated, and at that time the lady
referred to, who was then in her 68th
year, gave orders to a local stonemason
to insert her name at the foot of the
stone. This was done, bnt he was
rather surprised to receive a further
order to add the words "Died 1889."
At first he hesitated, and afterward
complied with, this request, although
he did not credit his customer, with
may remarkable degree of prophecy.
x ear alter year passed by, and when
1889 came the eccentric ladv was still
living, perhaps contrary to her own
expectations. The eDitanh now con
fronts her every time she wends her
way to church service. So robust is
she that since 1889 she has visited
America, and apparently derived con?
siderable benefit from the voyage
The following is a cony of the in
scription on the stone:
"In memory of Edward Locklev.
f ,
stonemason, son of John and Mary
Lockley, who died July 30, 1843, aged
36 years. Also John, their son. who
died December 7, 1846, aged 35 years.
Also Thomas, Richard and Joseph,
their sons, who died in their infancy.
Also Sarah, their daughter, born Autr-
nst 8, 1819, died 1889."
