TRIED TO KILL HER HUSBAND
A Flora Greek Woman Arrested in Omaha
For Attempted Murder.
HER VERSION OF THE AFFAIR1

a Doit Fight.
AriVHtotl for Altomptcd Murder.
A wnltur in Lmvls' restaurant , 822
North Sixteenth street , who has been
styling herself nu Mrs. Gilbert , was ar
rested by Sheriff T. L. Tn.vlor , of Dawson -
son county , yesterday , charged with at
tempting to murder her husband last
April. Her right nnmo Mrs. Jcssio
Quill , and her husband's natno David.
On last Saturday she was arrested by the
deputy sheriff ot Daxvson county , but
managed to slip away from him. Yes
terday , however , she was re-arrested by
Sheriff Taylor and last evening was taken
to Plum Creek , her former home , and
from which she suddenly disappeared
after the attempt on her husband's life.
Mrs. Quill is a young woman of un
usual Intelligence , and barring a certain
disagreeable pertness and volubility of
speech , is ladylike in her demeanor.
Her version of the story boars the ap
pearance of truth. She says she has
been married to Quill some six or seven
years. Almost from the moment of her
marriage to her linal ( light In April her
life was one of misery. Ho drunk , made
her support herself , and continually
abused her with curses and sneers as to
her virtue. Three times she loft him ,
but each time , yielding to the entreaties
of friends and trusting his promises to
do better , she has returned to him. Her
final trouble with him was caused by her
desire so go on a visit to her old homo at
Cednr Hapids , where she had not been
for live years. Ho then took occasion to
heap upon her the vilest of epithets , to
throw out insulting insinuations and
otherwise abuse her. She stood this for
about half an hour , when , seizing a
pitcher , she struck him over the
head , intllcting an ugly cut.
While the wound was being dressed she
remarked to the physician that she
wished Hhe had kilted him. She claims
that it is the indiscreet expression of this
wish that caused her pursuit and capture.
The day after this episode she disap
peared , coming to Omaha. She roomed
on the corner of Cass and Sixteenth
streets , and was well thought of by those
who know her. The husband's version
of the story , however , makes her appear
n liend incarnate , without a. single re
STARRED IN A SALOON.
A Dispute Over a Doc Fight Causes a
QWheaton & Stores' saloon at 1339
Saunders street was the scene of a
cutting affray yesterday about 11 o'clock.
Lon Krout and a plasterer named Mart
Hover had some words over a dog fight
in thn saloon , when Hover suddenly
Whipped out a dirk and stabbed Krout
twice. Krout throw up his arms to ward
off the blows , and received a slight
wound just above the wrist and n deep
cut four inches in length on his loft arm
just below the shoulder. Not knowing he
was so badly hurt , Krout seized a billiard
cue nnd roundly belabored Hover with
it. The plasterer made for the door , but
Krout managed to got in one or two good
right handers before his murderous as
sailant escaped. Krout was meanwhile
bleeding frightfully from his wounds ,
nnd when ho first discovered himself
covered with blood and saw how badly
he was hurt , ho almost tainted away.
Ho was taken to his homo ut 1012 Frank
lin.street and his wounds dressed. Al
though not dangerously wounded , he
was very weak from the loss of blood.
About 0 o'clock last evening a lieu re
porter who called nt the Anderson boardIng -
Ing house at 153 ! ) Saunders , where Hover
rooms , was surprised to lind that party
ut homo unurrostod , drunk and terror
izing the occupants of the house with his
foul language and threats. An hour erse
so later , however , a couple of ollieers
were sent out to look after him. and
fovnd him at his rooms , He was taken to
the coutral police station and locked up.
A South American Visitor In Omaha
Tells of the Country.
A full boarded man , past the middle
ago , haying the appearance of General
Grant , sat quietly musing in the office of
the Millard. In conversation with a re
porter ho soemcd to be chary of his
words , as if wanting to weigh them be
fore uttering them. Hearing the music
of the Salvation array band , ho asked its
cause , and upon being told whence the
heavenly strains proceeded , ho expressed
surprise , and said ho had never hoard of
such a body of people before. Ho had
traveled in nearly every country of the
world anil had scon everything from the
Ganges to the Missouri , and hoard all the
musical strains from the greatest opera
or oratorio to the sweet singer of Michi
gan , but the Salvation army ho had
never scon , nor hoard its music until
that moment. This was Mr. Daniel
11. Solomon , who is at present
cniraged in building railroads in
Venu/.uoln. Ho has been inParis and
procured a charter there for building an
important railroad , starting from Cara
cas and running across the comitry.

Cots his usual reticence and ins language
takes on the term of rapture. Caracas ,
a city of 1)0,000 ) people , ho said , is a most
enterprising place and a paradise for en
terprising young man. Venezuela bonds
are now worth only 35 cents on the dollar ,
and these arc being bought up largely by
Mr. Solomon ana the syndicate with
wluoh ho is connected. The bonds , ho
claims , will bo at par ere long , and all
the troubles and potty jealousies now ex
isting in the country will soon coaso. In
a country 1)00 ) miles from cast to west and
770 from north to south , with an area , in
cluding adjacentislands in the Atlantic
ocean and Caribbean sea , of 403,270
square miles , thorn cannot help but tin a
splendid future , and American enter
prise is doing much to develop its vast
resources. Perhaps tlioro is not much

Mr. Doollttlo Makes' a Statement
About Mrs. Jnokmnn.
OMAUA , Sept. 23. To the Editor of tiio
BEE : Very much to the regret of Mrs.
Doollttle and myself wo iind our names
dragged into public notice in a most un
pleasant manner. The article in Satur
day's BEE relating to Mrs. Jackman
leads any reader to infer that wo are au
thority for the statements made , which is
a very great injustice to us , as well as to
the family of Governor English. No one
could bo moro unwilling than wo to say
anything derogatory to Governor Eng
lish or family. I was acquainted with
him in a business way many years ago ,
n Now Haven , nnd have always held
lim in the highest esteem. Because of
his respect for him and having no
knowledge of the late history of the fara *
ily , and moreover , oui of sympathy for
Airs. Jackman , who is bo pitied.no matter
whoso daughter she isI urged Mrs.Doolit-
tlo to call at Dr. Cuscadcn's and see Mrs.
Jackman. This lady scorned to bo
'amiliar with the homo of Governor Eng-
ish , of Now Haven , and made the im
pression that her story in regard to being
a daughter was correct. No such state
ment as "Mrs. Doolittlo knew Mrs. Jack
man as the daughter of Governor English
when fourteen years of ago , " or that
"Mrs. English was a kleptomaniac , " etc. ,
was over made by Mrs. Doolittlo : Mrs.
Doolittlo never know the family at all ,
and 1 think her reputation is such in this
community as to make it impossible that
any stain of "wilful misrepresentation"
should rest upon her. I refer now to
jenor.il Dennis' letter In Sunday morn-
ng's BEE. No blame can bo attached to
General Dennis for his defense of the
family , nor possibly for his attack upon
us , severe as it is and undeserved , being
misled by Saturday's article. Wo do not
know the gentleman , but wish to assure
him that it is very far from us to * say any
thing that would reflect upon the family
of Governor English. Very respectfully ,
W. V. DOOLITTLE.

UNCLE JOHN VASSAR'S LIFE.
t Furnlahc * the Text For a Sermon
On a Hcd-Hot Christian The
Paul of the Nineteenth
Commercial Traveler * .
A largo number of knights of the grip
wore present last night at the So ward
treat M , E. church to listen to Her. C.
V. Savidgo's sermon on the subject
'Commercial Travelers. " The text was
aken from Luke 10:85 : : "Take cnro of
ilm , and what soever thou sl > endcst more ,
when I come again I will repay theo. "
Ir. Savidgo said : I preach this evening
o the "Commercial Travelers , " but
thcr hearers need not settle back in
heir seats and think that there will bo
othing for them. A good sermon is
ike an old-timo shoi gun , it scatters and

rou are not saints but sinners , and all
inners need the gospel. You need
moro sermons than you get. Lately ,
have been looking up your his-
ory. Like Dr. Johnson , I should like to
know the biography of every man I
moot. The time was when the dealers
went to the great cities onca or twice a
ear nnd bought the goods for their
rado. Now the plan is entirely changed.
The great manufacturing firms and the
wholesale houses send out men in fovorv
direction to bid for trade. I am told thai
n 1844 , Daniel R. Wolff went tolPhiladol-
> hia as a salesman for the dry goods
louse of Dunton Gommill & Co. As
rado was dull , Mr. Wolff suggested that
some one bo sent out among the country
iierchants to drum up trade. "Who will
> o the drummer ! " asked one of the firm.
'I will , " replied Mr. Wolff. Ho went on
the roud and solicited trade among the
merchants of southern and central Penn
sylvania and Now Jersey. Ho carried
10 samples but filled orders from samp-
es provided by the merchants to whom
10 sold. In 1819 , the thought struck Mr.
tVolff that if ho carried samples of his
own , ho could introduce now goods and
sell more of them. He told the house
that the samples were coming from the
wrong end ot the lino. From that time
on , samples wore carried.
Since the war , especially , your num
bers have grown until you now are a
mighty army , amounting to 250,000
The growth of trade in this city has
icon phenomenal in the past
on years. For example ten years
igo Omaha had one small jobbing
lardwaro house , which sent out two
uen. Now one firm sends out nine.
In the spring of 1830 there were not
moro than three salesmen in
one of the leading lines making
the state , now iy this line there are
over twenty , and all other lines have in
creased proportionally. Three hundred
traveling men make their homo in this
city , and Omaha is only a sample of
other great centers.
The commercial traveler is , as a rule ,
a fairly well paid man. The average
salesman gets $1,200 a year. The mcn
who sell to retail dealers get as much as
ftf.OOO or $4,000 , while the men who sell
o the jobbing trade sometimes gets sal
aries of $4,000 to $5,000. Here is an incentive -
contivo to do well , and the traveling man
should be well paid , for ho carries great
interests and great responsibilities.
Tne traveling man ought to be a whole
man , for ho has a man's work to do.
i'lio best men are born , not made , for it
s a natural gift to be a good salesman.
Ho should also bo a gentleman. A boor
would have very little success on the
road. Ho should be a gentleman at heart
as well as in manners.
Ho should bo ublo to road character
and have the good sense to lot iiis cus
tomer ride a hobby if lie insists upon it.
If the traveling man can only have one
i ift , let it bo common sense , tor common
sense is the genius of Immunity.
Ho must be honest a man of his word.
Ho must not need watching , for he goes
where his employer cannot watch him.
He ought to be a sober man. The day
when the commercial traveler can bo a
drunkard , and yet stand well with his
house , is past , and past forever.
Ho should bo a hard worker. If unin-
cumbered ho makes three towns a day ,
and with trunks ho makes from one to
two. Often , like that woman in the
sciipture , ho "rises while it is yet night. "
lie has need of genuine pluck , that is ,
ho should have a heavy underjuw and bo
able to whistle when it rains.
Ho is a bright man. A fool has no place
on the road. Ho meets and docs business
with the shrewdest men of the land ,
hence ho himself must bo intelligent.
Ho must mn'te personal friends of his
customers , and they must come to believe
nnd even implicitly trust what ho says.
Trickery gains for a day , but old time
honesty wins in the long run.
The wise salesman knows how to rest.
Ho who knows not this art will either
break down or &o crazy.
The best traveling men are kind hearted
and liberal , ready to help the unfortun
ate and to relieve suffering. Dr. Uyers ,
of Ohio , says that the good Samaritan
who spoke our text was a traveling man.
A poor fellow going to Jericho fell among
thieves , who boat and robbed him , then
left him for dead ; and though a priest and
n Levite neglected him , a Samaritan , who
was a commercial traveler , put him on
his own boast and took him to a hotel
and said to the host. "Take care of him ,
and whatsoever thou spnndest more ,
when I come again I will repay theo. "
In his gifts the traveling man is .seldom
imposed upon , for ho is quick to see the
genuine. A littlu boy fell in front of a
hotel in Lincoln , broke his lee and spilloc
the contents of his market basket. The
traveling men present sent tlio little un
fortunate homo in a hack and gave him
$18. In the city of Hastings not long ago
a company of commercial travelers wont
to church. They were given seats in
front and wore attentive listeners. Whet
the old deacon passed around the ha

December 0 , 1878 , a man died who
might be called the Paul of the Nintccnth
century. The secular papers of earth did
not mention his death , but it made an ex
citement in heaven. One man enters
glory as a sailor escapes from a wreck
to the shore. Another has an "abund
ant entrance. " Doubtless there was a
waving of handkerchiefs from every win
dow along the golden street and a burst
of music from all the bands of heaven
when he , who hardly called himself the
"Shepherd's dog , " was welcomed homo.
He , Jike D. L. Moody and Joseph
Cook , was not an ordained min
ister. Once in the army he was
offered a chaplaincy at $125 per
mouth , but when some suggested that
the coin was the cause of his seeking
ordination ho refused to go on with the
exercises aud continued us a colporteur

Knapp was holding meetings in Chicago
with crowded houses , but no conversions ,
ho inquired of Uncle John the reason.
He know that Knapp had bought 1,600
acres of land , and ho suspected ho was
thinking of real estate moro than bouls ,
so ho answered , "Dear Brother Knapp it
is not for the Lord's poor dust to attempt
to give you any light , but I have boon
wondering how one of the Lord's diamonds
mends could shine with 1,000 acres of
earth on it. "
Vassar's heart was full of Christ. The
dollar had no glitter for him. Ho was
sent to pull men out of the lire. Religion
was his mother tongue. From that mid-
tnightwhon under conviction ho rushed
o his wife's bed and cried , "How can
you sleep when your husband is going
right down to hell , " until the last word
"Hallelujah , " when ho wont up with a
shout , he acted on the principle that the
"King's business rcquireth haste. "

none of his books ho said : "I am legs
for Bunyan , Baxter and Flavel. " Ills
quaint earnestness soon led the woman
to her knees and the books to her library.
Such incidents jostle the sense of pro
priety of those tame , discriminating ,
moderate , prudential , decorous , half
hearted , easy-Eoiug , average worldly
church members. Vassar , like Luther ,
Wesley , Whitliold and Moody , was not
contented to sit like gilded bottles on the
shelves of a druguist , while the sick
world died. Ho came down and emptied
himself into needy hearts with healing
"A red-hot enthusiasm for Christ
plunged suddenly into an element of
hike-warm piety will inevitably produce
a hissing and ebullition. " But ho who
would move men must come with an ur
gency which is overwhelming. If they
that bo wise shall shine as the brightness
of the firmament , and they that turn
many to righteousness , KS the stars for
cver'and ever , then Uncle John's wisdom
was tiie true wisdom. It is not he who
has the finest poles , lines and Hies , but
ho who brings homo tlio best string of
fish. Better a press gang method of
forcing soldiers into the army of Christ
than listless and fruitless conventional
ity. Better the exuberance of lifo than
the composure of death. Nothing is
moro dignified than a covpse , and noth
ing is more useless , whether on u church
roll or in a pine colliu.

Iloinn For tlio Friendless.
O.MAIIA , Sept. 21. To tlio Editor of the
Br.K : Some of the various auxiliaries
of tlio Homo for the Friendless have re
quested mo to inform them of tlio work
of the friends of the Homo. Wo intend
to hold an annual state meeting , begin
ning on the second Wednesday of Octo
ber. The hospitality of the city of Lin
coln is too well known for me to refer to
it in this connection. The ladies of the
board of managers have stood nobly and
are worthy of commendation and appre
ciation , and while the state realizes that
it is doing a work that cannot bo over
estimated , yet wo UHO realize that the
earnest co-operation of the auxiliaries is
necessary , The delegates and ptfftidi'iits
of the auxiliaries are earnestly invited
to bo present. Important business will
be brought before them. Further notice
of time and place will bo announced.
