While icturnlnp from u vis it to her two
children In the South Snn Francisco orphan
mylum ouo night Mrs. Jtlurphy , a weak old
woman , was waylaid and brutally outracrcd
by eight hoodlums , says the Chronicle. The
crlmo was committed by members of the
nmo pang of rufflnns of which "Fat" Jack
Klloy and O. S. Joselyn wcro shining lights
before they -were sent to S.m Quontln prison
for IIfly und forty years respectively , their
Victim dying from tlio effects of the mal
treatment she received. The imprisonment
pflCiley nnd Josclin struck terror to the
hearts of the gang , but the pardon of the
loaders by Governor Wntormnn bus evidently
Inspired them with fresh contempt for the
Tlio assault on ISIrs. Murphy was peculiarly
ntrocioui. As the lady , who Is nearly Hfty
years old , xvai passing n pile ol lumber , she
was tei'Cd by txvo men. Ono of the assail-
nuts threw his nrm nround her neck , and ,
forcing her bead backward , smothered her
cries by plndng his hand over her month.
Ills companion gathered the old Indy
Up In his arms and they carried her
Into a near by lumber yard. Before she
lost her strength they beat her unmerci
fully , lllows were showered on her face nnd
body , tie men using their clinched fisU ,
Several times she essayed to scieam , but tbo
sounds were drowned in her throat by the
choclilng to which she was subjected. 'W hen
sbo had exhausted her lust vestige of strcn gtli
In the struggle nature assorted itself and
Mrs. Murphy lost consciousness. Ilcrscincs
returned and she saw that her two assailants
bad been reinforced by six other mon.
Thi > poor old woman appealed to them In
thojiumo of everything good to have mercy
on her , but. the scoundrels only derided her.
Then she struggled ngain , and one of the
wretches Btabbcuhcrln thosldowlth n knife.
Js'car daylight tbo hoodlums vanished , nnd
Mrs. Murphy- almost dead frora exhaustion
B d loss of blood , crawled to n near-by house ,
) ' , i o occupants of which rendered assistance
" her. It was not until yesterday morning
fins she left her bed. The bandages on her
i"nd and the bruises and scratches on tbo
j , co mid hands bear testimony to tbo brutal
, of the imault.
'During the night the rufllanshad a quarrel

Chiron the hand Policemen took William

The commercial travelers have a hard tlrao

Gerlmdo Athcrton writes a poem , at least
she calUU it n poem , In which the drummers

railway papnr published an opinion to the
effect that drummers wcro not entitled to

will never win the snake skin belt of the

There are dozens of the children of the same
