CRIMES OF A CRAZY FIEND ,

THE WOMAN IS STILL ALIVE.

Mrs. Kitto Devlno was In her eoltnRO on
Murtlm Btrcct between Thlrtounth and Four
teenth nhont 5 o'clock yestcrdiiy afternoon ,
ininlstcriii | > to tlio wants of n llttlo child ,
when she was startled by the shrieks ot a
woman piercing thonlr in tones ot ngonj
nnd terror. Hushing out of the house , she
nn\v the next door neighbor , Mrs. John
SpilhiL-k , hanging by onu foot from the front
window of her own house. The window wai
eight feet from the ground and the s tsh had
fallen oter the shoo , the too of which had
caught In tlio sill. The dangling woman
cried and groaned and shrieked and writhed
with thu excruciating Intensity of abject feat
and torturing pain.
As Mrs. Dovlno ran to the prisoner she
was Joined by Mrs. Mutza , anothoi
nclghlKir who had been attracted
by llifl fearful outcry. Mrs
Splllnck in Q largo woman , and the two
neighbors were barely able to lift her weight
When they had succeeded the prisoner
turned her foot , ( reed the too from the all !
nnd fell heavily to the ground , landing In
confused heap.
It wits then that the rescuers discovered
Mrs. SpiUuok's clothing to bo smeared with
blood , and realized that a murder had beet
attempted. A crowd of neighbors had gain
orod by ihh time , mid the wounded woman
was curried into the house of Thomas Hudcn
next dear.
Thu men rushed into the Spillnek home
nnd found iU owner in the front room do.ul
Ho lay upon his back with his head turned
slightly to one side , and blood oo/cd from til'
lips , ills head was resting on u strip ol
brusselrt ciirjict , that served as a rug , and tin
blood coagulated so quickly that instead ol
spreading it piled up in u clotted muss n hall
inch deep ,
John bpilinuk had tried to murder his wifi
nnd then hilled himself. Their humble honu
is Hot ujxjn a high basement with thoeiitrancc
nl the rear. Thu upper llcor has two rooms
each about twclvo leet square. In thu front
one was a bed , u stand and a wardrobe. On
the walls were colored portraits ami tin
picture of a distinguished foreigner in uni
form. The rear room was useu as a kitchen
but it also had a bed piled up with n bit
feather tick , and there was also a big old
country trunk covered with oil cloth as
though it weio used for a t.ihlo. The floor ;
were bare of carpet save the rug nlreadj
mentioned.
Mrs. Hpilinek was unable to speak and
could throw no light upon the affair. Tin
old mother of the dead man w.is at ; i neigh
lior'n , and an adopted daughter was ou' '
playing with- other children. They wore ,
thoioforc , no witnesses to the tragedy bill
the participants , but the attending circum
stances toll the story of the cruel deed.
Splllnck had for seine months had an In
nano fear that attempts were being muih
Ux | > n his life , nnd frequently clmruod his
wlfu with trying to poison his food. Hi
probably luui 0110 ot his insane ills yesterday
mid engaged In 1111 altercation. Such scene-
were frequent and noisy , but too common tc
inako an impression on tlio neighbors. On
this occasion Splllnck had n , revolver , and it
thunwful vcnueiulncss of his dcmnntia he
inatlo it the instrument of his horribly tils
ordered Imaginution.
Ho shot his wife three times. She was
facing him when the lir.st two bullets won
flrcd , receiving ono in the lolt shoulder and
the other between the breasts. They were
in the front room , and the wife turned tc
Jump out of the open wiudow. Ai
she did so it third bullet went er.ish
lug into her buck In the loft side
She staggered and pitched headlong out o
the window , striking the sash In her plungi
and bringing it down upon the ono foot a :
already described. In falling she struck the
building with such force us to causu a wounc
upon the right side.
As his wifu disappeared , screaming in ai
agony of pain and fear , Splllnck , who hai
been so fearful of his II to before , may hav <
bad a ( lash nf reason and realized the tor
riblcness of his act. Ho placed the muzzli
of the revolver In his mouth and pulled tin
fatal trigger. The avenging bullet ton
away thu soft paluto in its liight of death
cut the artcricH at the back of the throat am
to uiako Its mission swift and sura probabl. '
struck the spinal chord. The man tried t <
'flro another shot , but the linger was pulsic <
before it could complete tlio effort , and tin
half-raised hammer fell in mutu acquiescence
Its duty had been dono. Justice necdci
not mutilation to make its execution mor
awful. Tbo hammci loft its man ; upon th
cartridge , but fell too lightly to wing its itc
stroylng messenger. The bullet lodged 1
the back of the throat or neck , nnd loft th
body without outward sign oC n wound.
Drs. Halph and Kosowater were called , an
made Mrs. Spiline-k as comfortable as poss
bio. The wounds in the front of the bed
were prtbeit but without result. The bulk
which eitured at the breast picrcod the ape
of the lungs , surcharging that organ wit
blood , and passed nearly through the boj ;
With only Umso two wounds the wonia
would have a fair chancu of recovering , bi
it was feared from the evidences of hen
orrhago that the bullet entering the bac

W.vTnm.oo1 , la. , Sept Irt. fSpeclnl Tele-
grain to Tun Htn : ] The celebrated Jones
ountyc < tlf case Is bo f orb Judge Lynhnn
his week. It Is a ease with a history. It
md its origin fourteen years ngo , has been
rled in several district courts , been heard
n the supreme court two or three times , and
low comes up for adjudication once more.
In 1871 the case was started In Jones
county by n farmers' society. A man by
ho name of Potter of Grcono county trav-
led through that sootlon buying young
lock. Among the rest , five c.ilvcs wuro
jought of n man named Johnson , who has
icen the prominent Ilguro in the litigation
vhlch has consumed fro much time. The
calvea which were sold were afterwards
den tilled an- belonging to farmers
n the vicinity. At a meeting
of the Jones county nnti-horso
thief society , held shortly afterwards , It was
determined to charge Johnson with the theft
of the animals , and suit was accordingly CIT-
cred. In December , 1871 , ho w.is Indicted
> y the grand Jury In session In Jones county ,
nit the court , sot the indictment aside In
? obruur.v of the following year ho was again
ndictwl by the grand Jurv.und on this Indict-
nent ho was twlco tried , taking change of
entio to adjoining counties. In the first trial
ho Jury disagreed , ono man remaining firm
n favor of conriction ; but In the second
rial , which ocean cd in 157(1 ( , ho wu.s ao
Itilttod.
Soon after his acquittal ho began suit
against farmers by the names of Miller nnd
foreman and six other prominent members
of the society , claiming $10,000 for
malicious prosecution. This case was
taken up on a , change of venue from
Jones county to Clinton. There it
was twice tried and then removed to Honton
county on a change of venuo. In each of these
trials the Jury returned a verdict In favor of
Johnxon for amounts ranging from $3OJU to
7,000 , nnd each tlmo the Judge set the ver
dict asldo on account of alleged errors.
The case was next taken to Hlnck Hawk
connty , In 1SS ) , on another change of venue ,
and there tried. A verdict of $5,100 was run-
ierccl by the Jury nnd Judgment entered.
: 'Yom this , however , an appeal was taken to
.bo supreme court , thu decision reversed ,
nnd the case was remanded back for trial in
8S1. In 18MJ the case was once more
tried in Hlack Hawk county and
again a decision was rendered In favor of
tohnson for $7,030. This was again appealed
o the supreme court , and once more the
verdict ivus set asidu und the case was sent
lack for trial In 1SS7. and now the sixth
t-i.il of the case will take phico In this city
after fourteen years of litigation.
This litigation has been under the consid
eration ot thirty grand Jurors and eighty-
'our petit Jurors. It h.is been presented to
line different trial Judges and has twlco
jccn before the supreme court. Five Judges
sat upon the beach each time. The court
costs alone amount to moru than $5OJO
md the attorneys' fees uro much moro
.ban that amount. All of the eighty-four
urors have decided in fai'or of Johnson , but
ho courts have uniformly set nsido the ver
dicts on legal grounds because of the close
questions an to whether there was probably a
case on the part of the members of the soci
ety for starting prosecution. The largo part
of a llfo tlmo has been spent In litigation over
a few animals , the entire value of which was
nbont $43. A number of the farmers en
gaged in the suit have bccoino hopelessly
uined , but still Johnson comes smilingly be
fore the court , begins his suit , and readily
> ays for thorn , though ho is fast sinking into
nsolvcncy and Is already nn old i an.
Children of various ages who testified when
.he litigation first began now lead into court
their own children , who nro nearly as old as
were their p.irunts at the time they made
their lirU bows to the courts. The farmers
nro growing old , their money lias leaked
tw.iy through the various legal crevices and
'ound its way into other hands. Homes have
icon broken up , n community muJo poorer
n everyway , and still the case is dragged
through the tedious channels ot the law ,
with but little more chaneo of settlement
than there was fourteen years ago. Testl
many will bo nil in and a decision tiled bj
the middle of nes.t week.

The Omaha and Des Moines teams played
two games at Association park yesterday in
the presence of a largo and enthusiastic con
gregation.
It was a cold day and naturally enough
Omaha got left.
This , however , was duo to that uncertain
clement , luck , in n great measure , for in the
first gnmo the local team outplayed the vis
itors nt all points at the b.tt , In the field and
botwccn the lines.
The score will substantiate the statement.
When a hit was needed Omaha couldn't
make it. while under similar circumstances
the Prohibitionists got there every time.
After kalsomlning the Omahus In the first ,
the DCS Moines team catno In and knocked
out an earned run.
The agile Holllday made a hit and stole
second. Ho wont to third on Pnpa Shaffer's
safe drive , but was caught at the plate tryIng -
Ing to score on the hit.
Danny Stearns then came up nnd whanged
a two-bugger out to loft , and of course the
rollo of Queen Anne's ' war scored.
In the fourth they tallied again. Stearns
made ills second hit. went to second on Ma-
cullar's out , to tllird on a half passed ball ,
und scored on Alvord's drive.
Again in the lifth did they got in a run.
Ilollidiiy got his base on n wild throw by
Tcbcau. Ho was forced to second on
Shaffer's base on balls and crossed the plate
on Stearns' third safe Int.
That ended the visitors' run gcttlnir.
Tlio Omahas managed to save themselves
from a whitewash in the ninth.
Hilly Annis got his base on an error of
Pholan's , stole second , and came homo
amidst a burst of enthusiasm on Tcbcau'a '
drive to loft for a single.

PUT TO THE TEST.
Sun Francisco Call : A bonutifiil sun
shiny August day. Not u cloud iii the
sky , but there was ono on the face of a
young girl who stood on the shady
pin/.x'v of a pretty white farm-houso
nestled among many pines.
And why was that usually oheorful
fnco clouded on this bright morning : '
Ask the sunhuaniH which played at hide
and seek among the branches of the-
pines , and they would whisper the
secret to you , which none save they and
Florence Cloightoii know , for she
whispered it to them as she stood there.
It was almost two months since she
bade good-bye to hercity home and
came to this quiet country in boarch ot
rest , after the ceaseless round of gayety
in the city. Rest and quiet she did
lind , in hotly , if not in mind. For her
mind woulu revert to a certain hand
some gentleman , who had boon a fre
quent visitor to her father's house for
some time.
Irving Handau was of tall , stately np-
pearanco , fine dark eyes , u massive
forehead and curly brown hair ; alto
gether what the world would call u line
looking man. Florence almost knew
that , before her departure , ho had boon
on the eve of asking her a very important -
ant question , one which would affect her
whole after life. And it was partly to
avoid this question that she had refused
to accompany a party of friends to a
fashionable summer resort. No one ,
save her own family , icnowof her where
abouts , nor could they find out.
Florence was pretty , a favorite among
her friends and , moro than all , her
father was a millionaire. No wonder ,
then , that society often asked during
thoao months , "Whore has MissCleigh-
ton gonoi" '
And Irving Randau , vas determined
to find out. IJut for a long time all
search and inquiry proved unavailing.
At last , when ho had almost given ui ]
in despair , it was revealed to him in u
most unexpected manner. Ho was
walking down the street when his
quick eye caught sight of a letter in
tno middle of the olrcnt. Something
prompted him to pick it up. It proved
to be a letter healed and directed to Mi&s
Florence Cloighton. Pinewood Farm
Blankvillo , N. Y. T.ho long bought-foi
information was found at last !
Ho hastened to. the poitolllco and
mailed the letter , which probably hud
boon dropped by some one n 111011)0111 )
before. 'I hen ho hns U > neil homo and
wrotu to Florence , asking that question ,
and saying ho would bo lit Pinewood
farm the next evening for his answer.
The receiptof this lollop was the
cause of the cloud on Florence brow
thh beautiful morning.
Mr. Hiuuliui , In addition to being
handsome , was rich and talented ; ono
that few young ladies would have ob
jected tons lover or hubiind. Hut for
all this Florence hesitated. Hho had
thought on this subject during the sum
mer , and now that the time for decision
hnd come she Know not what to do.
That she cared for him more than for
any one olto was evident. Dtil would
ho make a good luiftbanu"/ was the ques
tion she asked herself many a lime.
Florence was a sensible girl , and did
not wish to give np maidenly freedom
for one wlio would not tenderly cherish
her.
her."If
"If I could only test him in borne
way , " she said.
At dinner-time Mr. Plntt , her host ,
announced his IntontonUun ot making
a business trip to S. , twenty miles dis
tant.
"You and Miss Cloighton will not bo
afraid to bu alone one night ? " he said
to liis wife.
"Certainly not , " she answered.
The Plaits were elderly people , living
independent , of servants , so when Uio
old gentleman was away his wife milked
their ono cow. When milking-timo
came Florence said :
"You are tired , Mrs. Plait lot mo
milk for you. "
' 'I'm afraid you could not do much
with these hands of yours , " laughed
Mrs. Plall.
"Indeed I can , " said Florence ; "I
have milked the cow bovoral times for
Mr. Platt. It is great fun. Please say
yes. "
"You may if you wish to. But why
you should is moro than I can toll. I
think I will tro over to boo sister Mary
a few minutes , if you have no objec
tions. "
"None in the least , " ronlied Florence.
"You need not hurry back ; I'll btrain
Uio milk. May I put on your milking
HUltV"
"No need to ask thai , " replied the old
lady , leaving the room and starting on
her walk.
Sister Mary lived loss than a quarter
of a mile away , on the oilier side of the
hill , out of sight of the house.
Lo't to herself , Florence immedialcly
donned Mrs. Plait's milking suit , whicii
consisted of n blue and green striped
skirt , with a long saquo to match , a
huge plaid sun bonnet , and last , but not
least , a piece of white mosquito netting
tied over her face , as the Hies anil mos
quitoes were very thick at milking
time.
Arrayed in this picturesque ntlire ,
Florence surveyed horbolf in the mirror.
"Uow do do , stranger ? " nho said , in
exact imitation of Mir.-i. Plait.
Away she wont nerrH-i the Holds to the
pasture , where old Brindle was quietly
grazing. She drove the cow homo with
a merry twinkle in her eyes. Arrived
there , it was not long before bho was
seativi on the milking-slool.
"Hallo , old woman ! Is this Pinc-
wood farm ? " said ti voice behind her.
"And what is that to you ? " said
Florence , stopping the milking and
turning round on the stool to biirvoy
the stranger.
"I was told that I could got/something
to oat at Pinowood. "
"When I have finished I will got you
something to eat , " and Florence re
sumed her work.
The elegant stranger seated himself
on the fence , with his aristocratic no o
in the air. Soon the pail was filled
with foaming milk , and Hie "old wo
man" carried it to the bars , lot them
down , and turned the cow out to return
to the pasture at its own sweet will.
Turning to the stranger , she said :
"Now , stranger , wo will go lo the
house , whore you will bo provided with
something to eat. "
"Sue led the way , tlio stranger fol

When the stranger was saato 1 at the

who still had on her milking suit , and
said : "Is there a young lady hero , old

"Toll her Irving Itandau wishes t

voice.
"Thoro is no necessity you have tel

As she spoke Florence removed Iho

Florence saw him no moro till the fol

merely recognized him with a bow. In
cxplaing it all to her mother , Florence
said :
"You see , mamma , I only wanted lo

sedulously removed from the ordinary
iiilluences of the stage. It is not trott

frequently , but always as a part of the
audience , and I doubt if either of them

Gertrude Harrott mot in London las

no more romantic or eventful than if
tlio pair were not so closely connected
with stage exaggeration of sentiment.
The young man did have histrionic
aspirations himself , but they have not

the idea of becoming a physician.
Whether his enriched sister is going to
do anything for him in the endowment
