roe Mine question wu nscea ui tun
C. it ants, but here a lingular trait of
tman nature showed itself. They felt
tat it would be a great consolation to
tis lordship and the police if the guilty
parties were caught and punished, and
0 the whole three hesitated and stam
mered and finally concluded that they
bad seen me in the company of Ben
Johnson several times during the past
fortnight Undo John saw the chief's
private secretary taking down every
thing said, but instead of protesting he
fave me a wink which decided me not
to tell my story over again.
"Who says this man had a hand in
that there murder?" asked the landlord
u the chief wanted to know if I desired
1 , "His pal has confessed and given him
away." . .
"Do you mean that Ben Johnson says
Ralph Tompkins was in it with him?'' t
1 ao. no says una mu wjwju ua ui (
lookout on the outside, and that he is.
really the one who put up tho job." J
"Well, of all the biling, blooming,
. . . W 1 11 1 J
beat 'em all!" exclaimed Uncle John as
he struck his fist on a table.
Ben Johnson had made a olean breast
of it and had declared that Mary, the
maid, aud your humble servant were as
guilty as himself. He was getting even
with me sooner than he had hoped to.
"guilty" and "not GUILTY." '
The first thing the police of any
country do when a murder has been
committed is to find a prisoner, and
they always assume that whoever they
happen to lay hands' on must be guilty
because they have got him. The offloers
were not so far out of the way in hold
ing her ladyship's maid for examina
tion, for all circumstances were against
her, but in my case one hour's intelli
gent work by a detective ought to have
set me at liberty. My mother, Uncle
John Hampton, Jerry Simpson and
others could account for every minute
of my time since landing in Dudley. At
the hour , the murder was committed I
was in the company of five or six men,
all of whom were law abiding and hon
est I say that it would have been easy
enough for the police to satisfy them
selves that I was an innocent man, but
they never work to clear a man. On the
contrary, they bend their energies to
prove or to try to prove the guilt of the
one arrested. Uncle John was repri
manded for expressing his astonish
ment, and his offers of assistance to
help prove my innocence were promptly
refused. I was pretty well satisfied that
Lord Dudley himself doubted my com
plicity, but the polioe had the case, and
it was not for him to interfere.
It was not until after the funeral of
Lady Dudley that I was taken to court
for examination. Being only a sailor
man, and never having had to do with
law before except to make affidavit I
own that I was badly upset and could
1 not plan what to da Uncle John and
mother fixed it, however. They sent me
in a lawyer, telegraphed to Liverpool
for Captain Clark and got all my wit
nesses together. I came very near hav
ing a row with the lawyer before he
had been in my cell five minutes. As
soon as he had introduced himself he
led off with:
; "I am glad to bo able to tell you that
it was not a murder out of hand, but
that Lady Dudley came to her death by
a shock. There is no evidence that Ben
Johnson laid -a finger on her. "
"But what have I to do with that?"
I asked by way of reply. ,
"It is necessary, if I take your case,
that we have an understanding," he
said after giving mo a searching look.
1 am agreeaoie to inai. 1 nope you
didn't come here believing me
' "Johnson persists in his declarations,
and the polioe evidently believe they
have a good case against you."
"Johnson and the police be hanged,
and you on top of them. If you haven't
more sense than the men who looked me
up here, I want nothing to do with
"What will be our line of defense?"
he calmly asked, paying no attention to
"Why, that I had no more to do with
it than the chief of polioe himself."
"We shall' have witnesses to prove
a alibi, then?"
' 'Of course we shall. We will prove
the hour I left Liverpool and my where
about! during every hour afterward."
I gave him my story, and when I had
finished he rubbed his hands and smiled
"Really, now, but this does me good.
I was prepared for a hard struggle be
fore the courts, and here our case is
already won. Half a day ' work will get
our case in proper shape."
My atoren skiff had floated away
down stream, but was recovered. The
one which had run into me was care
fully lifted aside. The spot where John
son's head had rested on the inn floor
had been stained with his blood, and
Uncle John would not allow it to be
washed away. It seemed like turning
your hand over to establish an alibi and
Iav6 sty innocence to the satisfaction
of everybody. Indeed, Unole John and
ethers declared with much feeling that
If Lord Dudley did not present me with
ci least 50 for catching the murderer
L was not tho mas to retain their re
r lot gome even went so far as to
j-Dciae that the chief of polioe would
t elegise to me in public '
rtrhe-s I should have stated in the
11 2 tlr-tar teat the full name of
I 'i lislip's maid was Mary Wil
li;: asd that she was the daughter of
c firmer a try ell&t awty. Che
bad been in the family so long and had
been found so faithful that I am sure
Lord Dudley would never have doubted
her innocence but for tho police.
Neither do I think the police altogether
astray. Had it been any other man than
Ben Johnson, her iover, they would not
have reasoned as they did. In the good
ness of her heart the girl had insisted
on attending her ladyship that night,
and in the light of subsequent events
that was a point against her. Some of
the servants also confidently remem
bered of having heard her talk about
America and wish for a life of ease, and
that was put down as evidence.
However, after the shock of the affair
had worn off a bit the girl made a rally
and showed her spirit Feeling herself
to be perfectly innocent gave her great
strength. I have always believed that it
was Lord Dudley himself who engaged
a lawyer to defend her and hunted out
the points in her favor, and it was
something greatly to his credit Ben
Johnson was furious with the girl be
cause she had baffled him and furious
with me because I had brought about
his capture. Ho was .not an educated
man, but he was gifted with powerful
assurance and natural cunning, and he
completely deceived his lawyer and the
police and general public. He admitted
threatening Lady Dudley with the knifes
wnue toe menace had caused her deatn,
n0 doubt, it wouldn't be a hanging
offense. He might be transported for
ijfe but his lawyer honed to iret him
' . w
off with Iff or 20 years. His accessories
! might escape with a shorter period.
We had elected, as was our right, to
be tried separately. I don't mean tried
for our lives, but examined to decide if
we should be held to the assizes. It was
wonderful what a story the villain
Johnson reeled off to the benoh. Having
confessed his crime, he was held, as a
matter of course, and he was also used
as a witness against the two of us. The
girl was arraigned first Johnson swore
that she proposed the robbery more than
a year before it took place, and that for
months she had ridiculed him because
his conscience cried out against commit
ting such a crime. Loving her as he
did, he had finally been won over. She
had selected the asylum to which they
should flee, and he named Quebec as Jhe
port they were to sail for. She had per
sisted in sitting up with Lady Dudley
that night that he might not be disturb
ed in his operations. She had left the
window unfastened and the key of the
safe in the lock. She had also taken care
that all her ladyship's jewelry, but
I refused to accept a penny of it
more especially a magnificent diamond
necklace, was in the safe that night
The cold blooded villain went still far
ther. , He declared that she had left a
gas jet lighted for his convenience, and
that she had suggested chloroforming
Lady Dudley to give him full swing.
He even declared that she' commanded
him to kill the woman when she arose
from her bed and discovered them.
Those who heard Ben Johnson's testi
mony said that he looked the judge
straight in the eye and never hesitated
or blundered. When he was through,
sine-tenths of the people in the court
room regarded her as the more guilty of
the two. Then came the defense and
the reaction. ! Lord Dudley himself tes
tified to her long and loyal services. He
said the key of the safe happened to be
in his own pocket that night and for
three davs and nisrhts nreviouslv. aa he
had taken the necklace to a ieweler ;
had taken the necklace to a jeweler for
repairs and was waiting for its return.
There was no 'money in the safe, and
indeed but little jewelry. There was no
gas in the room, as her ladyship objected
to it There were marks on the sash to
prove that the catch had been sprung
from the outside. There was no chloro
form about the house, nor could Mary
have got any at the drug store without
an order. The servants at once denied
What they had said regarding Mary, and
she was promptly discharged from cus
tody. The police evinced their disap
pointment and chagrin at the outcome
of the case, but were probably Solaced
by the fact that I had no lord to testify
in my behalf,
You" have guessed my line of defense,
and you know that I had half a dozen
witnesses. It shouldn't have been a sur
prise to the polioe, but it certainly was.
This was due to the bold faced lying of
the villain Johnson. The story he told
, when put into the witness box against
, me made me pinch my legs to see if I
, was awake or dreaming, and his man
j serof telling it almost satisfied me that
I was an accessory. Such calm, cold
nerve was never seen before. He began
by stating that he had met me in Liver
pool a fortnight before and told me of
the "job" and that I had readily agreed
to join him. ' be claimed that I had
been in Dudley three days ; that he was
the one Who entered the castle while I
kept watch outside j that as we were
making .our escape by boat I charged
him with playing me false and struck
him down before he could defend him
selfall this and much more, and a
man telling the solemn truth could not
have assumed a more honest demeanor.
We showed, of course, that the Hindu
was still at sea on the date he gave and
in all other ways upset his yarn, but he
was taken to jail declaring that every
word he had spoken was gospel truth.
No sane man could dispute my inno
cence, but I presently found that the
public looked at me askance. I have
! been told that there is always a bit of
; feeling against the man who proves that
I be had nothing to do with the crime for
which he was arrested, particularly if
it is u heinous one and the public has
mado up iu mind that he is guilty.
They somehow can't quite forgive him
for disappointing them. In my case the
chief of police even had the impudence
to say to me:
" Well, my man, it seems that some
how you have slipped the halter off
your neck, but let me warn you that I
shall have an eye upon your future
movements. I presume yon will leave
town very soon?" ,
"I shall leave when I get ready to,"
was my blunt and perhaps impudent
reply. , -
"Ho talking back, sir I I have the
power to warn suspicious characters to
leave town and to lock them up if they
hesitate toga" ,
"Well, sir, go ahead on any course
that Buits you. I know how greatly you
are disappointed, but it is all owing to
your lack of sense in handling the case
at the start
He fumed and blustered ; but, having
burned his fingers onoe, he did not pro-,
eeed to extreme measures. Some one
spread the leport that I had been twioe
arrested in Liverpool, and I had a
pretty clear idea as to where the gossip
started from. Lord Dudley, as soon as
sending for the police, had offered a re
ward of 1,000 for the arrest and con
viction of the murderer. I had certainly
been the means of his arrest, and be
tween Mary Williams and myself the
prosecutor bad all the evidence neces
sary to convict. After I had been dis
charged from custody his lordship Bent
for me. He received me very kindly,
expressed his gratification that I had
come out of the case with flying colors
and referred to the matter of the re
ward. I refused to accept a penny of it,
to his great astonishment, but later on
I could not well refuse the gold watch,
telescope, chronometer and other gifts
he sent me by his chief steward, together
with his best wishes for my future wel
As Ben Johnson was held to the
assizes, the girl and I muBt be detained
as witnesses; so the chief of polioe could
not have driven me away if he had set
about it We had to give bonds, and it
was Lord Dudley himself who furnished
them. It so happened, however, that
the term was close at hand, and the
case would be disposed of by the time
the Hindu had been overhauled. This
would let me out of a bad scrape, but
nevertheless Captain Clark felt it his
duty to growl at me:
"Now, Ralph, you see the conse
quences of a Bailor man idling about on
land, and I hope it will be a warning to
you for the rest of your life."
"But one must see his old mother
now and then," I protested.
"Aye, if she be living within stone's
throw of the sea, but otherwise she
must not expect it. The land, Ralph,
was created for corn and trees and
hedges and villains, and no true sailor
who fears God arid wants to live an
honest life has any business outside of
a seaport I hope I shall get no wicked
ness through this trip up here, but I
feel shaky. I wouldn't have had it hap
pen for a 10 note."
On his trial in the higher court Ben
Johnson was impudent and defiant and
perfectly reckless as to consequences.
He threatened my life in open court,
and he made a determined effort to as-sau-lt
his old sweetheart with his fists.
Had jhe been a different man, the jury
would have dealt more leniently with
him, no doubt. There were those wjf
said that he would only have been pun
ished for attempted robbery. As it was,
he made everybody around him realize
that he was a desperate and revengeful
man who ought to be put away for life,
and that was his sentence transporta
tion to the penal colony in Australia for
the term of his natural life.
"you'll never get me half way
there I" he shouted when the judge pro
nounced sentence. "I warn you, judge,
jury, lawyers, witnesses and all, that
for every week I'm a prisoner I'll have
a life!" :
They had given him the full extent
and could do no more, and everybody
felt relieved when it was known that
he was handcuffed and shackled and
chained to the wall of his cell.
Lord Dudley's sister had come to pre
side at the castle, and both were per
fectly willing to have Mary Williams
take her old plaod. The girl would not
go back, however. With all the gossip
of the country roundabout, and with the
columns of stuff printed in the newspa
pers, she felt disgraced for life and was
anxious to get out of the country. Her
parents felt the same way, and one day
her father came down to Unole John
Hampton's inn to make Borne inquiries
of me regarding Australia. I had made
three voyages to that country and re
turn and had picked up a smart bit of
information. When I had told him all
I could, he said:
"Mother and me might stay on and
live it down, but Mary would grieve
herself to death. She was proved as in
nocent as a babe, but she knows she'll
be pointed out for years to come, and
that certain people will always be fling
ing out, and so we'll pull up stakes and
When Lord Dudley-heard of this re
solve, he called upon Farmer Williams
and paid him a fair price for his land
and stock, and it's my belief that he
also paid the passage of the three out to
Australia besides. They had only de
cided on going when I returned to Liv
erpool and thought I had seen the last
of them, though the thought upset me
more than I dared admit to myself. To
be hone8twith you, I had fallen in love
with Mary Williams. Perhaps the thing
would have come about just the same
had I met her at church or on the high
way, but maybe theoiroumstanceof our
being arrested and tsied together and
of our interests and dangers being the
same pushed matters along , at a faster
roe. Be that aa it may, I realized that
loved, her. She was under a cloud,
you see, and one couldn't reasonably ex
pect her to permit of any advances. Her
love for Ben Johnson had turned to
gall, sore enough, but that was no help
to me uud r the circumstances. I realiz
ed that I was foolish to entertain cer
tain hopes, and yet I could not drive
them out of my mind. . . .

Another Pink Pill Enthusiast.
Mr. Beebe 8aja She (Would Not Be
Without Them for Amy " Induce
ment Cured Her of a Bad Case
' of Chronic Rheumatism.
From the World-Herald, Omaha, Neb.
hre. Hury T. Beebe, who for the past
fourteen veara has resided at Ho. 144.11
Caldwell Street, Omaha, Nebraska, and
who has a large circle of friends and ac
quaintances in tnat vicinity, is an en
thusiastic admirer of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People. Mrs. lieebe bays
she would not be without Piuk Pills for
any inducement, as they have proven to
be such a blessing to her in the past few
For many years Mrs. Beebe has been
a sufferer trom a severe aud very peculiar
form of chronic rheumatism which gave
her no rest night or day. Up to three
years ago she did not know what it waa
to be relieved from pain iu some loca
tion or other, and at times, usually at
night, she was tortured with a concen
tration of rheumatism in some one joint,
usually iu the cords of the wrist. After
trying several kinds of remedies recom
mended by her friends, she began taking
Pink Pills, and quickly found reiiei.
Mrs. Beebe says: "Then is no doubt
of it. Pink Pills cured me.and I will never
be without them as long as I can get
them at the droit store or elsewhere. 1
always keep them in the house, and never
fail to recommena tnem to anyone wno
is suffering from rheumatism, as they
have done so much for me, and I know
thev will do it for others.
For years I was troubled with rheu
matism iu its worst form, in ere was
hardly a minute that I did not suffer,
durinz a neriod of twenty years. The
nain was not always in the same place.
but was all through the system. It was
worse, though, in the limbs andshoul
ders. Dunns the day, while I was not
at all free from pain, it was not so bad
as at niirht. when the pain seemed to
concentrate in one spot, and was so in
tense that sleep was impossible for me
or anv one around me, and I haye paced
the floor all night and thought I could
not endure it another minute. At times
the cords of mv wrist would become
cramped and knotted so that it would
seem as if sometmng was gnawing
through the bone, and the place would
be black and blue for days after. -
At last, after ! had tried several other
kinds of medicines without any effect, I
tried Pink Pills,-and had not taken one
box when I saw that they were helping
me right along. I was surprised that
they would act so soon, and remarked
the fact to my inenas. wnen 1 naa iaa-
en the second box the rheumatism was
entirely gone, and I have not had it
since, and that was three years ago, I
knew I was cured, but went on taking
another box as a safeguard against any
possibility of renewed attack. Since I
have been cured I have felt entirely like
another woman. I do not believe in
proprietary medicine as a rule, or any
other kind of medicines, in fact, but I
cannot speak loo highly for Pink Pills
for Pale People. You can say that 1
tried every remedy that was recomniena
ed to me, but the Pink Pills was the
only one that did me a particle of good,
and I would recommend them to any
one that Sb suffering from any form of
rheumatism. They are the mildest medi
cine I have ever taken. Why, you can
let one of the pills lay on your tongue
until it dissolves, and only a pleasant
taste will result from it. One does not
notice the action of the pills either, but
they do more work in a given time than
a dozen of the ordinary bitter pills."
When asked how she came to take
Pink Pills, Mrs. Beebe said: "Well, I'
saw in the' paper a statement that was
sworn to by a man that had suffered
from nearly the same trouble that I had,
only l do not think it was quite so se
vere, and I thought surely they would
not put in a false affidavit, and I was
positive that no one would swear to a
falsehood, they ought not to at least,
and as it would cost only fifty cents to
try it, I bought a box with the results I
have just related to you."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain in a
condensed form, all the elements neces
sary to give new life and richness to the
blood and restore shattered nerves.
Thej are also a specific for troubles pe
culiar to females, such as suppressions,
irregularities and all forms of weakness.
They build up the blood, and restore the
glow of health to pale and sallow cheeks.
In men they effect a radical cure in all
cases arising from mental worry, over
work or excess of whatever nature. Pink
Pills are sold in boxes (never in loose
bulk) at 50 cents a box or six boxes for
f 2.50, and may be had at all druggists,
or direct by mail from Dr. Williams'
Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.

SELF DENIAL WEEK.
The Salvation Army People Will Ob
' serve it Commencing Nov. 16.
The Salvation Army is all alive and
actively engaged in preparing for its an
nual self denial week, which takes place
November 16 to 22 inclusive. Large
sums of money have been raised in past
years, and it is a wonderful testimony to
the army's development and activity.
Each member of the army, as well as
friends of its many social institutions,
are asked to abstain from all luxuries,
and in many cases officers and soldiers
have actually determined to do without
certain articles of food which are ordi
narily considered necessary, in order
that by their acts of Belt denial they may
add financial support to the army and
its many different branches of work.
The social operations throughout
America have been greatly developed
during the past twelve months. New
food and shelters have been opened in
New York, San Francisco and Kansas
City respectively; As a natural conse
quence, therefore, the demands upon the
funds of the army have increased, and
this wilt require still greater effort to
raise a corresponding increased amount
during this self denial week. The total
aimed at is 40,000. r
