LUDICROUS NIGHT ADVENTURE
ON ROSEBUD RESERVATION.
HE HEARD RUMBLING AT DOOR
Slaughter Then Fired a Charge of
Bird Shot Through the Panel of a
Window Subsequent Investigation
Shows Burglar Was a Mule.
Dallas , S. D. , Nov. 8. Whllo riding
on his homestead claim In the ceded
portion of the Rosebud Indian resor-
vatlon near hero , Chester Slaughter ,
a well-known resident of this part of
the state met with rather a curious
adventure. Ho had sent his family to
town , Intending to follow them the
That night ho was aroused from
sleep by a nolso which ho bolloved was
made by some one attempting to
break Into the house. Creeping down
stairs , with a loaded shotgun In his
hands , ho heard some ono apparently
fumbling at the door-knob. Instantly
Slaughter raised his shot-gun and
fired through the door. Ho heard n
cry as of pain , but not caring to In
vestigate any further that night , ho
sedurely fastened the door and waited
When day dawned Slaughter wont
out of doors , confidently expecting to
llnd the dead body of a fellow man.
Ho was agreeably surprised , however ,
at not making such n gruesome dis
covery. Continuing his search , ho
went to a shed and there found a pot
mule , grievously wounded by the load
of bird shot which had been fired
through the door.
The nnilo had been running at large
In the barn yard and had backed up
against the door In an endeavor to
gain shelter from a storm . The mule
BRIDAL COUPLE MISSES TRAIN.
John Hennesy and Miss Dessle Me-
Comb Had to Drive to Wayne.
At 10 o'clock this morning at the
Catholic church the wedding of Mr.
John Hennesey and Miss Dessa Mc-
Comb took place. Doth arc young people
ple of Norfolk. Rev. Father Walsh
performed the ceremony.
An Interesting feature of the wed
ding was the fact that the bride and
groom , who had Intended to take the
noon train for Wayne , where they will
reside , missed their train , although
they stood on the station platform pre
pared to start on the journey. They
had come to the station and were chat
ting with friends before the train left.
Suddenly the yellow cars started to
move away , and although tne bride
and groom made a desperate effort to
climb on the car steps , the railroad
crew refused to permit the risk of
boarding the moving train and the locomotive -
comotivo kept on going. The couple
then took a carriage and drove to

louse , Wash. , to Typhoid.

CORONER'S JURY EXONERATES
HAASE'S HEAD WAS ON TRACK
His Feet , However , Seemed to be Un
der a Cattle Guard or Small Fence
at Side of Track and Englnemen Did
Not Realize It Was Human Form.
The coroner's Inquest over the re
mains of August Haase , who was
killed by the Norfolk-Bonesteel pas
senger train at a road crossing near
his homo north of Norfolk , resulted In
n verdict which found that the engineer -
neer and firemen on the engine wore
In no way responsible for the death.
Testimony of the enginemen brought
out the statement that Haaso was ly
ing on the ground , his head on the
track and his feet under a cattle guard
along the right of way , for some time
befoio the train struck him. The en-
glneer saw an object on the roadbed
some distance ahead of the train but
thought that it was a pumpkin , a
man's coat or some other similar ob
ject , lying on the track. The fact that
the feet were stretched under the
cattle fence , hid the man's body par
tlally and deceived the engineer.
Stopped Train , But Too Late.
Ho did not realize that It was a man
lying on the ground until the train hni
come almost upon Mr. Hnaso and , the
Instant It was seen that a human fonr
lay on the track , the whistle was
blown , the bell rung and all possible
emergency brakes applied. But the
engine had come so close upon the
man that Mr. Haaso was struck and
ils nock broken and head mangled.
Tlu coroner's Jury rendered n ver-
llct that "August Ilaaso came to his
loath by being struck by an engine ;
the engineer and fireman nro In no
way to blame for the death. " The
coronur , Dr. Kindred , arrived from
Meadow Grove on the morning train
to hold the Inquest. The Jury were ;
l.ouls Wachtor , Herman Wachtor , J.
O. Copolaml , Jacob Wagner and Frank
Dr. Kindred , the coroner , was met
nt the train by J. II. Conloy , constable
and tnkcn nt once to the scene of the
accident. The Northwestern claim
agent arrived from Omaha and attend
ed the Inquest. The remains were tak
en to the homo north of the sugar fac

ILLINOIS CENTRAL DIRECTORS
ELECT HIM HEAD OF COMPANY ,
MEETING WAS A STORMY ONE
Harrlman Wins Contest for Railroad
Control Now Has Continuous Line
From Atlantic to Pacific C ° aats and
ffrom Lakes to Gulf.
New York , Nov. S. lly the election
of J. T. llarahnn aa piealdent ol the
Illinois central Itailruad company to
tituyvosnnt Flali It In believed
that K 11. llarrlmaii hau nt lust ruul
IziMl the liilllllinunt of hht plan to
control a railroad llnu from thu At
lantic to thu Pacific coasts. In this
grunt plan thu Illinois Central waa the
one link missing to compluto a line
of track from Nuw York to San Fran
cisco ami Portland , Oro. , from the
great hikes to the gulf of Mexico and
from the gulf to the Pnclflc again. Uu <
til within a few months eastern ter
minals of the Harrlman system wore
at Kansas City , Omaha ami Now Or
leans. The Hrst Important stop In the
direction of securing the desired out
let on the Atlantic seaboard for the
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific
railroads la believed to have hcon
taken by Mr. llnrrlmnn several weeks
ago , when It was reported that one
of the roads under his control had
taken over control of the Baltimore
and Ohio by purchase of a block of
400,000 tiluues. This would give Mr
llarriman a route Irom Cnicngo and
St. Louis to Baltlmoro and New York
To complete the ambitious propoaltloi
for a continuous line from ocean to
ocean It was necessary only to con
licet the western terminals of the Bill
tlmoro and Ohio with the eastern tor
niinals of the Southern Pncillc am
Union Pncillc and this purpose the
Illinois Central serves amply. Us
line from Omaha to Chicago tics together
gethor the Union Pacific and Baltl
more and Ohio , while the Illinois Central
tral branch from Chicago to New Or
leans gives the Southern Pnclflc en
trance into Chicago and the soaboari ]
Taken together this syatcm , If mil
Hod , puts under ono control more than
23,000 miles of track , capitalized a
more than $1,700,000,000.

of the Illinois Central , was electc
president of the company nt a mee

been a stormy one.
HARD BLOW HR ) SOCIALISTS
New Russian Election Law Disfran
chises Railroad Men.
St. Petersburg , Nov. S. The chances
of the socialists In the coining election
of members of parliament were dealt
a sweeping blow by the interpretation
given by the senate to the new clec-
lion law , which , at one stroke , dlsfran-
chlses thousands of the poorer classes.
The operating personnel of the rail
roads and even the locomotive engineers
labor In Russia ,
neers , the highest pnhl
sia , are affected by the interpretation. .
Outside of factory workmen , the ranks
of the socialist party are recruited
chiefly from railroad men. This new
interpretation Is supplementary to the
senate's ruling of Oct. 20 , from which [
It was estimated that over 500,000 per-
sons who voted In the last election
had been cut from the election lists
Switchmen May Arbitrate.
Chicago , Nov. 8. The switchmen's 11
nn'on declined the proposition made
by the mamgors of the railroads en \
tering Chks-Ro to arbitrate the de
mands of the men for nn Increase in
wages of 10 cents nn hour. The rail-
rend innnar rs thru offered the men
nn 'ncrcase ' of 3 rents an hour , and
proposed nr'btritlon of the question
who'her or not tl-e men should ic-
ceive the 10-cent increase. The men
took the proportion under considera
tion. Tlio general Impression among
both the employers and the switch
men was that a compromise would
im rnMi < vi niui that a strike of the
SO.nno wltchmen employed on the
rends Interested In the controversy
would be averted.
The authorities of the Johns Hop-
x-ins , unVrblty , Daltlmore , conferred
the dcsr-o of LL. D. upon Sir William
Henry Perkins , famous as the discov
erer of mauve and for hla other worlc
along similar lines.
At a meeting of the conference com
mittee of the Southeastern Paasenger
association , It waa voted that begin
ning Jan. 1 all theatrical and amuse
ment companies will be charged a uni
form passenger rate of 2 cents per 1

fence and churned two pounds of lint-
tor. Hut for Arthur Tyson thin dreiini
of bliss might have eontlnutMl another
week , and pretty Viola might have
climbed to the roof of the WIIKOII Hhed ,
Hold paper rags to a tin peddler and
gone hlaekbcrrylng down In thu mead
ow as a continuance of her romantic
Arthur Tyson had not only fallen In
love with her , but ho was Intending to
ask forher , hand , lie hndn't published
his Intentions In any of thu Journals
or told the country postmistress what
was In his mind , but Miss Viola hud a
line on him. You cnn't fool a girl about
tmcli things. The man who Is courting
her may talk about the JO.VH of bache
lor life and pretend to bo a cynic on
affairs of sentiment , but she can rend
him like a book. When Arthur had
said that he would arrive at Viola's
aunt's on the Mill running down In
his nuto In the forenoon and running
back to the city again In the evening
there was n look In his eyes that said
there would be something doing.
The Mth came , and then things be-
Kan to happen. A letter arrived from
Arthur to say that his grandmother
wanted him to hurry to her dying bed-
Hide ; a big bumblebee came droning
along , even as Viola was reading the
letter while Heated on the veranda , and
stung her on the bare arm ; a windmill
man called on business and tried to
flirt with her ; she was chased out of
the barnyard by a calf and chased
back again by a turkey gobbler ; thu
dog got hold of her cute summer hat
and chewed It up , and who fell down
cellar while going after preserves and
landed on top of the family cat.
Several other vexatious things oc
curred between the morning of the
t-tth and noon of the next day , and an
hour after dinner Miss Viola made up
her mind to have a good cry. If she
cried In the house her aunt , who was a
sharp eyed old lady , would see her
tears and ask questions ; If she went
to the barn to ci\v among the cackling
hens and new mown hay , the hired
man would come slumbllng In ; If she
bid away behind ( he grape arbor or
the currant bushes , there were bugs to
crawl down her back as soon as she
was oft' her guard.
Down across tin1 meadow and half a
mile from the house there was a smal
] grove , and the disconsolate girl finally
made up her mind that her lo-ns of
' Honow should be shed around the roots
1 of those trees. Her manner of dodging
j ! her aunt and getting out of Iho Inm-c
and down to the grove would have
boon called "making a sneak" by SOUK
but a pretty girl who Is looking for n
I crying place should not be judged tor
i She found the grove a capital plan ;
for her business. There wore shadi
and quietness and the whispering o
the summer broo/.o through the loaves ,
and Miss Viola went at it and let tin
I fears fall , her chin quiver and her sob'
i frighten away the lone chickadee Ilia
was taking n daytime nap on a brand
above her bead.
Mr. Tyson hastened to the botlsldi
of his d.vlnt : grandmother , thinking tha
It would be a whole week before sh
would die and be burled and the wil
mentioning him as sole heir rciu
t'pon his arrival a glad xurprNo awaited
od him. It was a case of billons colic
only , canted by eating too heartily of
corned beef and cabbage nt Iho ad-
vaneed airi of eli/lity-throo
I lie would have hastened away at
once , but I he grandmother objected.
She had a story to tell-a story of how
that colic graspeil and gripped her and
lasted her ton hours before the doctor
could bring relief. It took her all day
to finish the story , and then It took her
nenhew several hours In addition to
convince her that If he did not hasten
back to town the whole t'nlted States
would turn turtle
He niude things hum when he got
started , but It was mldaftornoon of
the 10th when bis auto arrived within
cannon shot of the farmhouse which
sheltered the girl he meant to make
bis wife and of the grove wherein a
sad eyed maiden sat and wept that Is ,
Bhe wasn't sitting there Just then. She
had other business on hand.
At 1 o'clock that afternoon at the
railroad station , two miles away , a
train bearing lOO'lnnatlos on their way
to a newly completed asylum had been
shunted on to the side track to let the
express pass. They wore given re
freshments , and all of a sudden , while
the guards were about their hospitable
work and their vigilance relaxed , a
I dozen of the unfortunate people , men
and women , escaped from the cars and
scattered over the country.
Of course they wore Instantly pur
sued , but three or four of them got n
'ong start. Guards and fanners and
farmers' boys and farmers' dogs took
up the pursuit with avidity
As Miss Vloln sat In her grove and
sobbed tind wept and throw sticks al
the hugs crawling about she was stai >
tied by whoops and yells and shouts
She brushed away her tears and re
pressed her nebs and stepped out 01
the shelter of the grove to see what
She had heard of a rabbit being rout
ed out of a wood pile anil a whole coun
ty joining In the chase , nud It flashed
across her .ulnd that this was an oc
currence 04 * the sort. She was noon
undeceived Three men , four boys and
two dogs ( "ime running towaul her ,
and as she was seen Ilieie were cries
"There Is one of tin ml Come on ,
hoys ! Head her oil' and don't lot her
got away ! "
Men and boys and dogs bore down on
the helpless maiden , and almost before
nho could scream she found herself
grasped by both arms and being bur
rled along. She had been boosted over
a fence and hustled through a HiMlo
patch before she could gather her wits.
Then she began to struggle and pro
test. It was useless to struggle , and
thu men and boys laughed at her pro
testations , When fright made her weak
and slu > 'sank down one of ( lie men took
her on and kept business moving. Ho *
fore reaching the station ami the train
they were met by one of the guards.
The girl revived siitllelently to protest
anew , but he answered her :
" ( If course Hho's one of 'em , and a
cute wench .she IH | This Is thu third
time'In two years she has escaped us.
Hrlng her along. "
MNs Viola was In a distressful con
dition when the station was at length
reached. Her captors were mot by
shouting men and barking dogs and
walls and screams front the two car
loads of lunatics , and just then an unto
came whooping up and had ( o pause
for the crowd to clour the street. It N
useless to conceal the fact that It was
driven by Arthur Tyson.
"Wlnit'H Iho miitterV" he asked of an
excited farmer as the machine came tea
"More fun than I've seen In twenty
years , " was the answer. "Those two
cars are full of misty folks , About a
do/en got away , and we've been chas
ing 'em down. They've just got the
last one. "
Arthur stood up to look over thu
crowd. A woman had apparently
fainted away , and two or threu men
were about to pick her up and carry
her across to ( ho train. As her shoul
ders were lifted up he caught sight of
her face , and next Instant tilings wens
Ho sprang down Into the crowd , el
bowed men and kicked dogs right and
left , and In a moment wan beside Iho
woman. The woman's hair was down
and her face covered with dns | and
grime and her dress torn from nock to
shoulder , but love makes no mistakes
In such matters.
The young man had knocked down
two men and had the girl on his arm
before he asked for explanations. He
fore they were tendered bo had to laj
his burden down and perform further
pugilistic feats , but In due time tin
guan1 the farmers , the farmers' boys
and tinfarmers' dogs admitted that i
mistake h'td l > een made.
When the auto resumed Its Jonrne.v
the girl was a passeimer. Hlio Inn
come to and realised that she was no
being tnkcn off to an Insane asylum.
It was omo hours later , when tin
harvo-it nrioii was shining and the
whlpporwllls were singing , that she
told her story , and , though her aunt
was sitting right beside her and hold
ing her hand and calling her "poor
dear , " the "lory had only been finished
wl'on Arthur Tyson leaned forward
and kissed her and said that he pro
posed to see I'l'im that time on that shn
had the legal nnil moral right to weoj ,
In any grove she wanted to without be
ing hustled around the country as an
escaped lunatic. The proposal hadn't
come In Just the romantic form expect
ed , but MNs Viola was a girl of sense
and roullzc-1 that when exigencies
