Stafford Springs , Conn. , special : Mrs.
George Johnson was arrested hero yes
terday charged with shooting her hus
band while ho was asleep during the
night. It is staled that domestic trouble
had existed between the two for some ,
owing to Johnson paying attentions to
other women. The couple retired early
on the night of the tragedy , and about
midnight Johnson was awakened by a
midden shock and intense pain. Ills
wife was not bcbido him , but his cries
for assistance brought hop from an. ad
joining room. Upon OMimiuutlon it was
found that Johnson had been siiot , the
bullet having entered his body below
the tenth rib.
Johnson is in tv very critical condition
nnrt there is no hope for his recovery.
Mrs. Johtiron was arrested. She at
first rested all attempts to search hoi * ,
but flnnlly submitted ; and a i2-eaUbro !
revolver was found tied securely to one
of her nclos. One chamber was empty.
Bha accounted for the posae ion of the
weapon by saying that she had recently
been pursued by an unknown man and
hun obtained it to protect herself. She
denied nil knowledge of the shooting-
The court room was thronged this
afternoon at the examination of Mrs.
Johnson. The prisoner ut 11 rat seemed

wards tears cnmo into her eyes , and she
showed signs of weakening. Jubtico
Hosloy ordered the oc.cnscd to give
in the amount of 110,000 , which
was furnished by her Bon. At a , late
hour to-night the physicians had no
hopes of Mr. Johnson's recovery.
A Girl's Invention.
Springfield Republican : In a remote
but decent part of Boston has lived for
about fifteen years an English family
of rather unique interest. The father
served in the war of the rebellion ,
and , being a partial invalid in consequence
quence , receives a small pension , which
does not go far toward supporting the
family , and ho can do little besides
draw his pension and suffer his con
stant pain. The mother is a small
woman , with largo brown eyes and pale
checks. She has had ti toilsome life ,
indeed , and has done all sorts ot work
to try and eke out the family support.
Two daughters , the elder somewhat
noted in her neighborhood as a beauty ,
and a small boy make up the balance of
the household. Although desperately
poor , the family has boon as proud ns
Lucifer and seemed bound to accept no
more charity than was absolutely un
avoidable , though there are plenty of
well-to-do people around them who
would gladly contributed in their aid ,
as every member of the family com
manded respect. They have come
to bo known oven outside
their narrow circle from their con
stant ollorts to better themselves , try
ing now this thing and now that.
Everything failed until a short time
ago ; but at last the family has struck
something that will give thorn ease and
comfort if not comparative wealth. The
handsome daughter is credited with
the discovery , which is simply a now
method of treating photographs in re
production. Her name has boon given
to it , and her work is getting more and
nioso circulation cverv day with of
course an increased inflow of dollars to
the family treasury. She has secured
a patent on her process. All the pho
tographers are puzzled by the work and
would like to liavo it for use in their
business , as they see that this girl is
getting as many orders as she can 1111

torial work on the local paper.

A Girl Journalist.
Since Agnes McLollan assumed edi
torial control of the Seward ( Neb ) Dem
ocrat she has boon the recipient of con
siderable notice from the press , no doubt
largely because of her extreme youth.
Miss Agnes was born at Darlington ,
Wis. , on January C , 1ST. ] , and is now in
horsixteonlh year. On attaining her
fifteenth birthday she was placed in
ehargo of the local page of her father's
paper. In the fall of 188 ( ! her father
was taken sick , and for weeks was unable -
able to write oven his name. The
daughter gathered the news , prepared
copy , ran the financial part of the in
stitution and occupied the editorial
chair with charming grace and
unusual ability. During the sick
ness of her father , her mother
died , and then came a time
who-u it is absolutely necessary that the
young editress must needs care nol only
for the newspaper interests of her
falhor , but attend his wants in the sick
chamber and manage all the household
and ollico affairs. Jn all she has been
successful , and has won an enviable
reputation as a go-ahead , wide-awake ,
cnterp-ising little business woman.
Miss McLollan is an ostentatious littls
per on , deeply interested in her nows-
jmpoi work , beloved by her friends and
highly esteemed by her newspaper
brethren everywhere ,
