Thu two men wore taken to the
bank which they attempted to rob
Tuesday, and an Improvised sealTo'.d
was erected, The first impulse of the
mob was to burn the prisoners, but
valmcr counsel prevailed.
Yells of "Hang 'The Kid' first" weut
tip. Then others. "No, hung the old
est first." "The Kid" refused to say a
word, and those having him in charge
yanked him onlo tv box. The scene
was u weird one. One had on high
heeled boots, black pan's and a deep
red' flannel shirt, which added a g rue
some brilliancy to the scene. In a
moment the rope was about his neck
and a man who, some say, looked like
one of the men whose horse had been
taken, fixed one end across the cross
bar. All this time "Thu Kid" was
jeering at the audience, laughing and
cursing. Ho never quivered. He was
asked to say what he wanted, and was
told ltc would be given a hcsirlng.
He said: "That's all right. If you
tire impatient, swine; me up now. I
ain't afraid to die, not a d n bit of it.
Pull the rope. '
A voice in the audience: "Von are
going to die now. Tell us your name."
"The Kid:"' "My name is Younger
Lewis, mid my father and mother re-

"Well, tell mv
father I was not
.scared a bit; that
I died like a nervy
"Anything for your mother'.'"
"No, not a word. She will see the
message to the old man. Say, you
fellows go and look in thatdugo'ut and
you will find SH'.MIO there."
"The Kid," or Younger Lewis, as he
at the last moment hays lie was, con
tinued laughing uud chatting witli the
crowd, poking fun at them anil curs
ing for a moment, and then some one
veiled: "Time is up."
"The Kid" baid: "I am 20 years old,
and robbed that bank. I
u m dead game and ready to die. Oo
In an instant lie was muled up
above the throng. He never quivered
or kicked, lie just wont up in the
air and was left hanging. Men on
the frontier for years and years ssty
no gamer man ever died. He wsts the
contest man in all the great crowd.

Crawford and had a long talk. Craw

for years and was a trusted man He
began stealing his employer's stock,
however, and associating "with terri

When they began to look for a sec
ond rope, lie begged for whisky. It
was given to him. He talked and then
begged for more. He again addressed
the crowd in Comanche, English and
Spanish. Those who understood him
ssiy his utterances were incoherent.
The rope soon arrived and it was put
about his neck. lie fell, either in si
faint or from the whisky he had
drank. Mo was soon strung up along
with liis companion and their bodies
are still dangling in mid-air.

The port of Corinto huvl.ccn closed

A private cable dispatch reports that
fighting has taken place between

ssiid the rebels captured two lake
steamers. Telegraphic communica

Corinto and Leon with Managua, the

which was destined for Corinto.
There are . sinus that the revolution

Ites say they can count on slid, not
only in this republic, but in the other
four republics as well.
Tlie Liberals have no confidence in
the ostentatious display of sympathy
for Zelaya by leading Conservatives in

device to lull apprehensions and give
the revolution time to grow. Presi
dent Zelaya cannot hope for aid fiom
the Conservatives, tlie richest, most
inlluential people in the nonntrv The
inlluence of thu highcit social classes
is against Zelaya.
(iiiatemala is ripe for revolution,
owing to the deep seated dissatisfac

IrUpft Action of Kcpiilillriui In Dm
Washington; Fob. 27. Mr. Quay re
ported tlio army appropriation bill in
the Senate to-day audgavu notice that
ho would call it up to-inoriow.
Mr. Allen of Nebraska returned to
thu tariff question by referring to tlio
statements of Mr. Morrill,, Mr. boot
man and Mr. Piatt during the exciting
debate yesterday. Mr. Allen satd ho
had believed that it was the honest
purpose of the Republican party to
enact a law placing gold aud silver on
equal terms, lint tlio debate of yes
terday doveloped that the Republican
leaders, under no circumstances, would
accept a free coinage measure. Under I
tlio circumstances, he would submit a
distinct proposition to tlio chairman
of the finance committee, namely that
ho (Allen) would assure sufllclent Pop
ulist votes to givu a majority of the
Senate, if the passage of thu tariff bill
,us uccompauicil by tlio adoption ot a
free silver amendment.
Mr. Morrill remained in his scat
without responding, but Mr. Hoar of
Massachusetts made the point that the
discussion was out of order.
Unanimous consent was given, how
ever, to Mr. Allen to proceed. He
criticised the financial record of Mr.
Sherman. The Republican party
could not escape, said Mr. Allen, from
the attitude of declining to rcinone
tizo silver. "Thu Populist senators
are ready to swallow your nauseating
and unjust tariff measure," sstid Mr.
Allen, "if you will placo silver on
equal terms with gold; but you will
not do it."
Mr. Allen then turned his attention
to Mr. McKinloy nnd had read from
the desk a speech said to have been
delivered by the cx-Uovcrnor of Ohio.
Mr. Allen referred to Mr. McKinloy as
the chief apostle of protection, and
the speech purported to givu Mr. Me
Kinley's severe criticism of the de
monetization of silver. In conclusion
Mr. Allen held up a bill, exclaiming:
"Now, to test your integrity and good
faith, I offer this bill. It is yonr
tariff bill, without a 'T" uncrossed or
nn '!' nndottcd, except In the title.
And I sny to yon that if you arc ready
to show the good faith of your asser
tions for silver and link it with the
tariff bill, we pledge you six Populist
Mr. Allen's blil was read, it being
the tariff bill uud a freu silver bill
Mr. linker of Kansas asked if Mr.
Allen would agree to deliver the six
Kansas votes for a tariff' bill with an
amendment restricting thu silver pro
duct to American mines.
"1 have not consulted my colleagues
on that," responded Mr. Allen. "Anil
I do not undertako to direct the Popti.
list vote beyond this specific proposi
tion. Personally I would not agree
to it" .
Thero was some discussion as to the
merits of Mr. Halter's suggestion.
The Allen compromise bill weut to
the tablo temporarily.
Mr. Lindsay of Kentucky offered mi
amendment to tlio tariff resolution of
Mr. Carter, directing the finance com
mittco to report back a repeal of the
one-eighth differential on sugar.

Shelby, coininaiiding tlie Fulled States

Mon of his vicwa on tlio action of Com

stration next Milliliter in New York
city. Replying to the query, lioncral
Shelby sent the following telegram:
When tJencral Leo furled the Hag
and stacked arms ut Appomatox, then
and there thu colors and uniform ot
Iho Confederacy wcro burled for all
timo. The idol of bravo men lay shat
tered as the stars and r.triptv, floated
again itt its old timo place. Heroes
wept at the burial, but raised their
faces to salute the Hag of an undivided
and indivisible country. Anil we, who
still stand 'this sldo of the
weary door of death,' enjoying tlio
freedom and protection vouchsafed to
us by our common country and that
fitig, realize that there Is but one Hag
aud ono uniform, ono aymbol and one
nrmy, for our common country. C'lti
zunship Is broader than .sentiment mid
duty greater than tender recollections,
lint above all, trtio Americanism is
chief of this trinity of vlrtucB.
And so the ex-soldlery, whetbor of
tlio North or of tlio South, should
maintain that spirit of duty, citizen
ship and Amorlcanisui which will
banish sectionalism, bitterness aud
prejudice, and tie us together with a
fourfold bond of respect, esteemiffec
tion mid patriotism.
Relieving, therefore, as I do, that In
the paradu as proposed in yonr city

Republic in National uniform, nnd
the ex-Con federates in grey uniform
with stars and bars, would bo incon

It Is a Bomowhnt rcmarkablo fact that
out of tho upward of 4,000 women off
this country who aro physicians, not!
mora than 200 havo a col lego training,
'according to Prcsldont Thwlng of tho
WoBtcrn Ueservo University. Ot tho
1,235 women preachers and 208 -women,
lawyers In tho country but few nro col
lego bred. Even moro surprising is tho,
fact that tho collegoB havo contributed,
very fow of tho literary women ot tho
country. Most of tho women's collogo
graduates becomo teachers or ornament
homes. Many of the preachers, being
good talkers, do not undertako tho regu
lation threo years' course In theology,
but go right ahead and dlscourso from
tho pulpits, learnedly or otherwise.
Women do not, on tho whole.'secm to
cara to pursuo a liberal college course
whoro they havo a deflnlto professional,
purpose In view. They becomo doctors
through practlco as nurses nnd study
with physicians. Thoy becomo preach
ers through feeling what they count as
"Inspiration," and lawyers through of
flco Bervlco under promfnent jurists.
Perhaps existing conditions will
change, but at tho present Ib Is a fact
that outside of tho teaching profession
tho women's colleges furnish a small,
proportion of those who are gifted and
successful In the professions.
Beautiful, finely woven, largo, round
baskets now come cheap, and after be
ing gilded or painted a delicate color
are exceedingly pretty for holding
palms or large plants.
An attractive addition to children's
toys aro animals made of wood and
decorated with iwkor-work. There aro
cats, horses, pigs, dogs, camels and
tigers, and the meek and patient-looking
mule is not forgotten.
A novelty in pin-cushions is a tiny
stand upon which tho cushion is placed.
This stand is about fourteen Inches
long by eight inches wide, and rests on
four round posts or balls. It is of wood,
and Ib cither carved or decorated In
poker-work, or It may be veneered In
different woods. ,
Funeral flowers aro no longer all
white, and set pieces are not desired.
Hoxcs of looso flowers aro most ofton
sent by friends, although small wreaths
aro still used, but have become so full
that thoy aro moro like a round mat,
of flowers. At a recent funeral each
member of a largo family laid a wreath
of violets on the mother's coflln.
To clean white veils, mako a solu
tion of whlto Castile soap and let tho
voll soak In It fifteen mlnutos. Then
press it betwoen tho hands in warm
water nnd soap until clean. Rinse in
clear water, thon pour boiling water
on a teaspoonfnl of starch, soak tho
voll in It for a few minutes and then
clap It between tho hands until nearly
dry. Spread a towel over a pillow and
pin the lace In each polut smoothly
over it and let It remain until per
fectly dry. ;
