A SAW IN TAYLOR'S CELL.

Kansas Cm. April 17 Marshal
Keshlcar searched the cell of Hill Tay
lor, the murderer, today, und found a
Stubbs hick saw eight inches In
length. The saw was hidden in an
old fashioned glued canvas vallso
which Hill brought with him when ho
was removed from Carrollton to pre
vent a lynching. The saw wns tucked
in between the metal frame and tho
canvas cover of the valise. When the
marshal pulled it out Hill suld in his
"Would you believe me If I told you
where that saw came froivV"
"I don't know,' answered tho mar
shal. "Why, that saw was in here when I
came to this c-ll. It was, sticking up
in thu waL," said Hill.
The marshal did not stop to nrguo
that point with linn, but he knew Hill
was lying because that cell had been
thoroughly searched before ho was
put Into It.
The saw Is eight inches long and a
half inch wide. It is of the lluest Hteel
with small teeth. Saws of that kind
are mndo for gunsmiths and arc used
in sawing oil gun barrels. Marshal
Keshlcar tried tho saw on thecastiron
Bteiini register in his private olllce. It
cut through the iron like n knife
through cheese. A man working hard,
without interruption, could cut
through a cell bar in an hour with
such a saw.
Hill Taylor will bo watched very
closely now. Two deputy marshals
will be In his cell corridor all night.
The chief reason Marshal Keshlcar
decided last night to bring Hill Tay
lor's public receptions to an end was
because it afforded too many oppor
tunities for relatives or friends of the
distinguished murderer to go In with
tho crowd and hand in tools that
might aid linn to escape. This might
have been dono with case any itme in
tho last two duys while the morbid
crowd was going in and out by thou

in grain about twenty years ago. At

Fardndge's fiist attempt to follow

When December wheat was St a
bushel and May wheat 31. 0t. and the
opinion prevailed that the latter
would go up to SI. 50. Pnrdridgc said;
"Well, boys, I believe it will go to
eighty cents before it goes to Sl.r.0. '
It was one man against the markets
of the world. It is known that Par
tlrldgo carried '.'.,000,000 bushels.
Other speculators nave carried ns
much for a day or a week, but Par
dridgo carried it for months. When
May wheat closed at Mi'j cents Par
drhlge paid off his fc.lirJ.tK)'.1 mortgage
and cleared SI, '.'00,000 besides, Sl.oot)

Pardrldgc'b fuuious "plunges," He
was almost uniformly successful on
the bhort. side of corn nnd provisions,
and on the wholu his deals way be
said to have eclipsed "Old Hutch s."
For years ho had tho reputation of
being tho most reckless and most suc
