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.

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.

Some railway papnr published an opinion to the effect that drummers wcro not entitled to any more privileges than other travelers and the columns of the papersjgrow heavy with arguments In refutation of that claim. Then in a lighter vein TUB BEE printed a letter from Pctaluma , Cal. , that has produced this reply : I'KTAtt'stA , Cnl. , March 80 , 1S91. To the Kdltor of TUB HKR : Soraejperson sends mo a clipping from your Issue of March 23 , con talning a not very brilliant fiction of a gen eral exodus of all the ministers of our city on receipt of n perfumed note In a lady's hand , with tbo startling announcement : "All Is discovered lly I" I happen to bo pastor of "tho First Methodist - ist church of Petalumn , " ono of the seven or eight Protestant churches In the town , nnd am Interested In the marvelous inventing capacity of your correspondent. What n sight It must hnvo been to this staid com munity to sco the whole flock of their pastors disappearing over the tops of the Sonoma mountains I It is too bad that the concoctor of that delicious ] ullp did not tell us where we all bid in dens and caves , disguised with false whiskers nnd lampblack. A "professional" ought to do better than that nnd not hair try. Ho must have been sick or boozy. Ho will never win the snake skin belt of the champion lightweight liar nt that rate. There are dozens of the children of the same father who can beat him "all hollow. " The clip reminds mo of a chapter of ox- pcrienco lu the bygone. I was pastor in Sacramento after the war and the boys in blue Invited mo to address them A sort of self-nominated nondescript candidate for something came along , and misjudging that It might provo a taking card to attack n clergyman , mod away with his llttlo popgun. General Chury , now in congress , was a staunch democrat and my nearest neighbor. 1 was as staunch n republican , and the freelance - lance candidate aforesaid was a democrat. M the close of the fellow's tirade the general descended upon him llko a wrathful ava- lancho. , "You fool , " said Chivy , "wny don't you learn to lie ? You don't know how to Ho. You must prime it down so that somo- boay will heliove It There wasn't a man in the house who did not know you were lying. " Your correspondent , tbo fabricator of that uncleanly paragraph , ought to take lessons if ho Intends to continue in the business. Otherwise he'll make his master , the devil , no end of trouble by his excesses. I read the excerpt to the ministers present at our weekly meeting this morning and oven t'nelr pitv for the deceased mind of the "parlcnt" of such a buntllng could not wholly restrain a sense of amusomnnt at the care the fellow took of his personal safety by shooting at such long range. M. C. Biucas. Taking nu Order in tils Sleep , The following interesting story Is told by nn old traveling salesman who formerly rep resented ono of the largest jewelry houses in London , England. His experience Is ono which , to say the least , Is unusual , and will bo fully appreciated by the representatives of Amorlcan'houses who have never enjoyed the good fortune of a similar occurrence : "In the spring of 187CI carried a line of goods which was unusually popular with the trade , " said the drummer , "and when 1 reached Edinburgh , Scotland , I found It im possible to visit ray customers as promptly as i desired. By the middle of the afternoon several jewelers had called on mo and urgea mo to come to their places during the day. By 0 o'clock I was thoroughly weary , and was congratulating myself that I' would bo able to retire early and secure a good night's rest , when a customer whom f had ovorloookcd gently touched moon the shoul der and reminded mo tnnt I had neglctcd to visit him. Ho stated that bo desired to make a heavy purchase , aud I made an appoint ment with bimatmy hotel ntC:30. : " 1 Immediately repaired to my room , and settling myself In a largo easy chair fell nslecD , I was awakened by a light pressure on my arm. To my surprise the room was brilliantly lighted , and my customer was sit ting by my side. My sample case was open and Its contents wcro pread on the table near mo. I confess I was a little startled , aud was sleepily wondering whether I had been robbed during my nap , whoa my fears were nlllayed by my companion , who said : " 'I came at tbo anpointed hour and found you asleep. Notf desiring to disturb you I hnvo examined your samples nnd written out my order In your book. ' Dazed by tno state ment , I took my watch from my pocket , and discovered that it was half past 11 o'clock. I had been asleep nearly flvo hours. It was the easiest sale I ever made.
