Wichita Falls. Tot, March 2T
l cstcrCay afternoon there occurred here
one of the most daring attempts at bank
robbery .the country has ever known.
Charles E. Baglcy, Willy Hays and a boy
eighteen years of age, named Frank Par
menter, and .Tolin Kinkaid, a member ol
the Hanger force, constituted the party,
the latter playing ln with the party to trap
them. The plau., have been forming foi
several weeks, but were not perfected
until last night, when Kinkaid, betas ir
their confidence and getting the plans,
informed Lieutenant Schmidt fully a to
the entire scheme, and the latter notified
Colonel J. G. .lames, cashier of the bank,
of what was going to be attempted.
Si want Grimes was stationed in the
bank vault, and Ashly James-, cashier of
the bank, was at his counter, no one else
hem.; in the bank at the lime appointed,
but for some reason the attempt was not
made until half an hour later.
While l'armcnter ami Ilayc-s were out
side near the bank entrance holding the
hTes, Hadey and Kinkaid entered. They
passed through a pasagewav around the
counter, Uagley in the lead, smoking a
pipe. As he entered he told Mr. .James
he wanted some New York exchaiie, and
James told him to tay in front of the
counter: that thev did not allow any one
to come behind. I!:mley an.-wercd, "I
will come, anyhow," and took his pipe
out of his mouth and put it in a case.
When he had passed around to a railing,
sepanitin the business from the other
part of the room, he drew his six-shooter,
com red .lames and continued to walk
around to an entrance to the inclosure
n here James was, and where the money
and vault were.
When he covered James he called on
him to throw up his hands, which James
did. Htijrley had a has in his hand, and
told James to put all his money in it.
James did not comply immediately,
and Uagley said: " you, I will
kill you if you don't," and at the sama
time presented his pistol to James' heart,
as if he would shoot.
At this mo veiuent Sergeant Grimes llred
the contents of a double-barrel shot-uuu
into the robber, and Kinkaid followed
with a six-shoot.1!-. Uagley stairnered and
fell riddled with balls une pistol shot
entered near the left nipple. Lieutenant
Sehinidtand another ranger were sta
tioned across the street in the route they
were expected to take on their retreat.
A book auent bv the name of Wear was
in the bank at the time the robbers en-!
tered, and was talking to James, who ex
cused himself to attend to those gentle- '
men. Wear went towards the door, but
stopped to see what was up, and su-peei-imr
how matters stood started to run
across the street, when l'armcnter called
to him to stop, and he not heedinu he
emptied his pistol at him, and the teller
of the bank, who was stationed in the
store across the street, hearnm the shots,
ran out. ami seeing Wear running from
the bank, supposed he wa- oi.e of the
robbers ami presented his Winchester,
and told him to throw up his hands,
uhieh Wear did, calling out, "I am not
one of them."
Lieutenant Schmidt fired at Hayes, who
started to ru.i, nut did not win:; his man.
One of the rangers mptied hi pistol at
thebovat close range, but did not hit
him. The !. .v Parmeiiter told his pais as

Hie President Sends a Special Message to
Congress in Itegard to Naval Appropri

Vvasiiixutox, March 2S. The President
rcstenlay sent to Congress the following
aiessage recommending appropriations for
the construction of naval vessels: "In my
annual message I impressed upon Congress
the necessity of continued progress in the
reconstruction of the navy. I now deem it
my duty to advise an appropriation be made
at the present session toward designing and
commencing the construction of at least
three additional steel cruisers and four jaji.
boats recommended by the Secretary of the
Navy, the cost of which, including arma
ment, will not exceed $4,'.28:;,0u0, of which
one half should le appropriated for the next
fiscal year. The Chicago, Uoston. Atlanta
and Dolphin have been designed and are
being built with care and skill, and there is
every reason to believe that tliey will prove
useful and serviceable modem cruisers.
Technical questions concernim; these
or additional vessels cannot be wisely
settled except by experts and the
Naval Advisory Board organized by
direction of Congress under the act of
August r. lbb-2, anil consisting of tluee line
ollieers. a naval constructor and a naval
engineer, selected with refeience only to
character. exjM'rience, knowledge and skill,
and a naval architect and marine engineer
from eiil life, of established reputation and
standing as experts in naal or marine con
struction, and is appropriate authority to de
cide finally all such questions. I am un
willing to see the gradual reconstruction of
our Navy cruiser-, now happily begun in
conformity with modern remiirenicnts, de
layed one full year for any unsubstantial
reasons. Whatever conditions Congress
may see fit to iuiose in order to secure
judicious designs and honest and economi
cal construction will be acceptable to me;
but to reliimish or potouc the policy al
leady deliberately declared, will Ik?, in in.,
judgment, an act of national imprudence.
The approj iriat ions should also be made
without delay for finishing the four
double-turrcted monitors, the Puritan,
Ainphitrite. Terror and .Moniidnock,
and for procuring their armament and that
of the Mianitonomali. Their hulls are
built and their machinery under contract
and approaching completion, except that of
the Moiiadnock on the Pacific coast. This
should also be built and armor and heavy

Hair bT the Ton.
"Ilurnau hair goods are worn more
now than thev ever were." said a Bos
ton dealer who does a
lanre business in
, "All classes of ladies
g, middle aged, and old -
wear it voun
some for tisc, but more for ornament.
Men wear wigs only when they cannot
help it. Women wear false hair to add
to their charms, Short hair is in de
mand now, in the form of Lisbon and sea
foam waves and frizzes, and the favorite
color is chestnut brown. The golden
shade, so much in fashion a few' years
ago, has fallen 50 per cent, in price.
There is a great deal of competition, and
all kinds ot hair goods are cheaper than
they used to be. Switches, especially,
can be had at a low price. Ladies form
erly paid $15 to $20 for a good one, but
thev can get an extra nice stvie at from
5 to $10 to-day."
"Where does the supply of artificial
hair come from?"
"Nearly all from France and Ger
many, with a little from other parts of
the continent and England. The largest
quantity and best quality is from France,
It is not the hair of dead persons, as
many imagine, but conies from the
heads of living peasant women and
girls. It is gathered by peddlers, who
buy it for a trille -a silk kerchief or
some other trille which pleases the fancy.
It is taken to Paris anil sold to manu
facturers, who assort it in lengths and
shades for export to America and other
countries. Here are some boxes with
hair which has not yet soen light in th'w
country. 1 will open one. There, you
see the form in which it comes. Little
rolls, which I pull out so, and you see
what will be part of a Lisbon wave.
That is the best quality of hair. There
is also an inferior kind, not much used,
which is rrathcred from ash-barrels and
dust-heaps of Paris and .Italy, and as
sorted into lengths and shades. It is the
cheapest kind of hair. Dealers pay
from $G to $12 a dozen for the switches,
and sell them at $1 aud $2 each. Wo
get some raw hair in this country, but
very little. It conies nearly all from
the nunneries. I do not think there
would be fifty pounds of it in the half a
ton of hair which 1 buy in a year. There
are-some inferior grades made by New
York jobbers, but all the good hair
comes from abroad. There tre in
France regular 'hair raisers' that is,
girls who have their hair cut for sale
every four years."
"What is the most expensive kind of
"Natural silver white, like this, is
worth $18 or $20 an ounce; so, you see,
it is worth more than its weight in gold.
Bleached white hair is worth'only $. an
ounce, from $5 to $'20 a pound, except,
the hair collected by rag pickers, which
brings only from $1 to $. The value
of diU'erc ut colors of hair depends on
the fashion. Yellow hair, not golden,
i? almost useless to us."
"I suppose there have been great im
provements in your art of late years?"
"Yes. indeed. You could tell the
old-fashioned wig a mile ofl", but now I
can make a wig which will defy detec
tion. A great many top pieces are worn
by men like this."
Here the hair dealer, greatlv to the
siirpric of the reporter, lifted up what
was to all appearance the natural hair
on top of his own head, and disclosed :;
cranium as bare as a billiard ball.
"Now." said he. "here is what wo
call the Lisbon wave for ladies. It is in
the fashionable shade, but it is worn
over natural hair of any color and
wholly conceals it. A great deal of
care is required to make :i good wig.
The hairs have to be drawn through
meshes one by one where the parting is
and at that part the meshes are made of
white hair woven iu pieces of different
lengths and widths. Here are some of

desk drawer. Thev looked like coarse
"There are $500 worth there," said
the dealer. "You can shut your hand
on $1Q worth. A good wave costs
from $5 to $50, according to quality
nnd color. Ornaments for the hair in
latest style have Khine stones in them
to sparkle at night. These cost from
25 cents to $0 each. Do I make false
eyebrows? Sometimes, but it is hard
to do good work with them so that they
cannot he detected. 1 do not make false
mustaches for dudes."
"I suppose you sell a good many light
colored waves to dark haired ladies?"
"Ah. you may see many a pretty
blonde on the street with black eyes
which she cannot hide and black hair
which she can. Fashion rules all.
hist now the color is medium brown,
but there are constant changes in style,

Castor Beans a Most Profitable Crop.
The failure of the wheat crop in so
many sections, and that of the corn
crop in others, is ilireeting the attention
of our best farmers towards diversify
ing their i-rops.
The value of wheat and corn is de
pendent upon European markets, but
owing to the protection afforded by the
tariff to castor beans there is a con
stant and growing home demand for
this crop at prolitable prices. St. Louis
is the chief manufacturing point for
castor oil. and the market price there
now for castor beans is two dollars per
bushel. It is a crop as easily raised as
corn, and is cultivated in a similar man
ner. Seed beans can be obtained ol
any of the regular seed merchants in
St. Louis, and but one bushel is re
quired to plant from lifteen to twenty
The demand for castor beans this
season exceeded the supply furnished
by the last crop, and the prospect is for
high prices the coming season, as we
hear of contracts now being made at
high fixed prices for the coming crop.
Our farmers would do well to give at
tention to this subject. "

may wonder how. having made prepar

and being on the point of starting foi
the Congo, he could so suddenly alter hii
plans and set forth for the Nile. The fact
is that Gordon despises "preparations"
and dispenses with them. W hen, being
returned to London from Brussels, he
had an interview before departing for
Egypt with a friend interested in his
mission, a conversation of the following
nature if not in these precise words

"Ah! I forgot it. Yes, I forgot that.
I had to borrow 25. by the by. from
the King of the Belgians, to get over

shall want a little more."

Thus the frugal hero departed, we be

anil left or gave his old African friend
the greater part of his traveling money.
He lias always shown a similar contempt
for that which is the object of so many
.lesires. At one time in his ehequered
life he possessed, we believe, the sum of
18,000, and an intimate friend pressed
liim to place it in safety at proper inter
est. Gordon replied that he himself could
take all due care of it, but the sum he
same reduced to 2,000 by secret char
ities and benefactions within a year, and
six mouths after that his friend discov

original amount. The rest had gone to
"the poor and him that hath no helper."
