fhen Women Writer Write.
Conon Doylo sayii ho has always ob
Bcrved that whether a woman's stylo
of writing be plain or florid, It Is always
clear and comprehensible. "No woman
that I ian recollect," ho says, "has
ever been tempted Into the heresy of
preciosity. Tho word style, which In
France has always been synonymous
with lucidity, has In England becomo
more and more Identified with obscur
ity, so that If you learn a new writer
Is a Btyllst you nearly always And a
difficulty In understanding what ho
means. Tho best style, like the beat
glass, Is that which Is bo clear that
you do not observo It. Some of our
critics are fond of talking of purple
patches, but purple patches were never
n Blgn of health. Now, In this respect,
I think tho Indies havo always been on
tho Bide of sanity and I do not think
that any ono could have a better model
of prose romance than such writers as
Ollvo Schreiner or Miss Wllklns."

OOOU NEWS FOR FARMERS.
Arctic overshoes will be cheaper next
winter. Our readers have all heard
omethinj about the Rubber Trust,
and have known that since tho forma
tion of tho United States Rubber Co.,
rubber boots and shoes have been
nuuh higher than they used to be.
Several now companies, however, have
commenced tho manufacture of rubber
tjoods within the past year or two, and
the usual result of competition has
followed. Prices are down, and tho
public will pet the benellt. The
first new concern to enter the field
was the Providence Rubber Company,
of Providence, R. I. The head of tho
concern was the lion. A. O. Ilourn,
who had been In Europe as Conhul
Oeneral to Rome. Tho first western
house to put these goods on the mar
ket was Bentley & Olmsted, of Des
Moines, who last year had tho exclus
ive agency for the northwest, for
the above Rubber Compauy. Thes"
goods were sold at considerably lower
prices than tho Trust goods, and
i'cntley & Olmsted were warned by
the Trust that if they continued to
handle outside brands they would dis
criminate against thorn. They, how-
ver, were not to be intimidated, and
have tills year secured tho exclusive
agency for Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska,
the Dakotas. and all west of these
stntes. of another new concern, Geo.
Wntkinson & Co. Thero has been
great reason for complaint because
rubber goods have not worn well. Mr.
Watkinson, who Is ono of the oldest
manufacturers of rubber goods, when
starting his new factory nt Philadel
phia, realized tiiat a big business
could be built up ou a better grado of
gootU. He is therforc making his
goods of pure Para rubber instead of
using part African, which is much
cheaper, and has also added several
new Improvements, such as heavier
soles and heels, -and tips on heavy
goods, with the intention of making
the best wearing goods ever produced.
Another new line of rubber goods
mado outside of the Trust, is made by
the Hood Rubber Company, of Roston,
who make a second quality line under
t he brand of the Old Colony. It re
mains to bo seen whether the trust
will be abh in crush out these new

UniiAffA, Ohio, Juno 1. "Chick"
Mitchell, n negro, yesterday plonded
guilty to, and was sentenced to twenty
yoars In the stato pcnltontlary for a
criminal assault on Mrs. Eliza Uuu'
mcr, tho widow of tho late publisher
of tho Urbana Democrat. Tho town
pcoplo were groatly Incensed at the
sentence, which they declared to bo
At 2:;ui o'clock this morning a mob
of citizens attacked tho jail to tnko
and hang Mitchell, nnd wan fired upon
by tho militia. Two of tho mob, Har
ry Roll and a man of the namo of Hlg
gins, wero killed and uight others
At :30 o'clock this morning tho fur
ther enraged mob broke Into tho jail,
took Mitchell out and hanged him ton
treo In the court houso yard in tho
prcsenco of hundreds of women and
thousands of men and boys.
Mrs. (laumcr was too ill to bo In
court yesterday, and tho man wns,
therefore taken to her homo for Iden
tification. As he entered the door alio
raised herself on her elbow nnd ex
claimed: "Tho brutel Hang himl How dare
you faco mc,,you brute?"
In default of 81,000 ball Mitchell
was looko.l up In the city prison, but
on account of tho feeling was removed
to the county jail for safo kcoplng.
Last night a mob gathered and de
manded Mitchell. Governor llushncll
wns called on for assistance by the
sheriff, but ho refused to order tho
militia Irom any other place.
Tho crowds would not disperse. The
excitement grew moro and moro in
tense. Night inflnmcd the excitement
and the streets wero thronged. Yella
wero heard all around tho jail.
Finally, at 2:30 o'clock this morning,
the mob attacked tho jail. The militia
tired on tlio attacking party nud struck
moro innocent spectators than active
law breakers. After the firing of tho
militia into the crowd Oovcrnor Rush
nell was wired for more troops nnd
ordered Company R of tho Third In
fantry, at Springfield, to proceed at
onco to Urbana. At 7:10 o'clock the
Bpringfield soldiers arrived, thirty-six
strong and wero marched to tho jail.
Angry citizens, incensed over the
killing of their townsmen by the mili
tia at 2:30 o'clock a. m., were further
irritated by the nppcaranco of more
troops. Crowds gathered along the
streets and greeted the soldiers with
hootings and all sorts of insulting re
marks. Tho excitement was grow Ing so fast
that another clash between troops nud
citizens seemed inevitable. Mavor
Ganson thereupon took the responsi
bility of urging the Springfield com
pany to return to tho depot. The or
der was obeyed.
No sooner did tho crowd pcrcelvo
this apparent retreat by the soldiers
than their fierce demand for the blood
of Mitchell grew stronger.
The local military cpmpany had pre
viously refused to bt c longer and
went to the second story of the sher
iff's residence and tried to sleep.
THE NEGRO LYNCHED.
With no resistance offered, the crowd
at once made a rush for tho sido door
of the jail. Two strong and deter
mined men kicked it down in short
order nnd gained admission to the cor
ridor, the crowd following. There
wore plenty of sledge hammers,
chisels and other tools In tho crowd
and the men went to work.
The crowd got into tho jail quickly.
It did not wait to unlock tho door to
Mitchell's cell, but burst the lock with
a blcdge hammer and the door soon
flew open. Mitchell was standing in
his cell and offered no resistance and
did not utter n word. Some one in
the crowd liad a rope and it was
placed over the brute's neck nnd the
crowd made for the door, Mitchell fol
lowing at the end.
In going down tho steps on the out
side of tho jail Mitchell fell down and
the rope slipped off his neck. Tho
crowd surrounded him and jumped on
him like n thousand hungry dogs after
The negro was kicked, beaten nnd
almost killed. The rope was again
slipped over ills head and a rush made
for a tree in the southeastern corner
of tho courtyanl in front of tho court
house. The end was thrown over a
good strong limb and willing hands
pulled the wretch up. Tho end was
tied to the iron fence nnd Mitchell
vwas left hanging there in full view of
"several thousand people.
The men who took part In the lynch
ing mndo no attempt to disguise them
selves, but It i,s not known who did
tluwork. Tho person who attempts
to llnd out, it is freely stated, will get
into serious trouble.
It is doubtful if Mitchell died from
the effects of tin; hanging. His llfo
had been almost kicked out of him
when he fell down. It Is tho general
opinion that he was unconscious when
strung up. His body was luft hang
ing for an hour or more, and tho peo
ple of the city flocked to sec It,
The feeling tu Urbana against tho
militia is- intense. Public opinion is to
the effect that there was no occasion
for the general shooting Into the
-rovd. and that a little firmness on the
part of the sheriff and other officers
was only necessary in order to arrest
the ringleadurs and pacify the inob
when It made its first attack on the
limiui tanner AJurdxrul.

HOW ABOUT ALFALFA?
Too Mueli Ico In flpots Interfere With
Wh.it killed the ulfnlfa lust win tor:
This N tlio question that is- being vari
ously answered, but by no means In u
satisfactory manner, savs tlio Ord
Julz. Rut oven n moro difficult quor.
Hon tj why it should bo killed In spots.
Fields and portions of fields npparently
subject to tho tuitiu ondltloiiH nro In
one instance Imre and In another grow
ing to luxuriant nlfalfa. While tho
answer to tho latter question must bo
made after tin examination of each in
dividual case, It must bo remembered
that there la an unswor, for there Is no
effect without n cause. The Quiz,
clings to tho belief that the largo
amount of moisture last winter, freez
ing in some cases a heavy coating of
ieo over tho ground, Is fruitful cause
for much of the dead alfalfa. It is ti
fact well proven that a heavy coating
of Ice will kill well-rooted grasses.
Even the hardy bluegrass cannot stnud
such an ordeal". Many proofs of this
can bo found in this vicinity. Mr. E.
J. Clement killed a patch of his blue
grass law n by allowing tho wntor to
flow onto It from his water tank lust
v inter, forming a heavy coat of lee.
And there are other Instnnce.s that may
be cited. That such a condition Is
fatnl to alfalfa Is shown lit tho case of
the writer's alfalfa. He has two
patches on slightly sloping ground, so
that the water cannot stand uny where
except in the dead-furrow. The
strongest grass last year was In this
furrow, but this spring the alfalfa is
dead there, while olsowhero the stand
is bettor than last year. It may be that
tho appearance of ban spots In your
field may bo explained by the forma
tion of ilriftH last winter which had
luter partially thawed, thus forming
Pasturing the field is undoubtedly
Injurious or dangerous at tho least.
Cutting nt Improper times may also
prove injurious. One or all of these
conditions may have conspired to kill
your alfalfa. And the varying combi
nation of them may explain the un
sightly spots in your field.
It must bo remembered that last
winter was a severe one on other crops
that havo to withstand the rigora of
winter. Winter wheat looked well till
March, then It Was found to be dead.
Our farmers should not, therefore, bo
too hnsty In condemning the growing
alfalfa. It is too valuable a crop to be
experimented with Indifferently or
meagerly. We believe It is the hay
crop for Nebraska, and that when we
understand it bettor wo will have no
special dlillculty in raising It success
fully. Happily the first reports of failures
seem to have been exaggerated. Fields
that looked at first to havo been badly
damaged have come out all right after
