From Miss Florence Beale of Chicago,
who married the man last October, sup

concerning his criminal career. It baa

Mills a, Former Convict.
"The man whom I supposed to be Harold
C. Mills and my lawful husband la John
Lepger, an ex-convlct of Ohio," said Miss
Uoale to an Inter Ocean reporter. "He
has been married to three women besides
myself. I only know the name of one of
these wives. He was married to her In St
Louis In July, 1809. and deserted her In
September of the same year,, after secur

of his convict record and secured a dl

these facts, but I am under promise not to

After absconding from Chicago, leaving
the stockholders of his company In the
lurch, Lepger was next heard from In Pitts
burg. There he started a concern known
as the Fidelity Home Assurance and Realty
company. While there he married a young
woman, but I am not at liberty to divulge
her name or any of her family connections.
His presence there under the name of
Homer C. Reed became known through a
check that had been endorsed over to him
by Mrs. S. A. Edwards. 6670 Halsted street,

"These facts can all easily be verified.
Other things I have beard about the man
are more vague. X have heard that he has
a bad record In a number of small towns In
Ohio, where he Is said to have operated
under various aliases. In one of these
towns, It Is my information, that he mar

It will soon devolve upon the mayor to
appoint a board of review for the purposo
of equalising the municipal taxes assessed
by the city tax commissioner. More than
likely the appointments will be made at
Monday night's meeting of the city coun
cil. Under the charter the mayor names
one freeholder and the city treasurer an
other and these two appointees, with the
tax commissioner, constitute the board of
review.
This board Is required to sit from Junn
15 to June 5 and for Its services the mem
bers receive $6 a day. A general review
of the work of the commissioners' deputies
Is made. This covers both real and per
sonal property. Where the board deems It
advisable to increase the assessment turned
In by the tax commissioner it devolves upon
the members to notify the owner of the
property and ret a date for the hearing
of the case.
Last year the board had quite a busy
time of it as the valuation had been in
creased by the tax commissioner from
$2,500,000 to over 118,000,000. As many: of the
aisputea cases were aajusiea last year it
is hardly thought that there will be eo
many complaints this year. While no totals
are at hand. Tax Commissioner Fltxgerald
Is of the opinion that the total valuation,
when all the books are turned In, will show
pretty close to, If not a little over, $20,000,000.
During the year a great many Improve
ments have been made and these of course
will swell the total valuation. Then again,
some of the corporations will find their
valuation Increased slightly and a corre
sponding decrease on property in portions
of the city where there are no public Im
provements to speak of. It seems . to be
the desire of the tax commissioner to get
the valuation of property in South Omaha
somewhere near what It ought to be.
For years the valuation waa hammered
down and kept between $1,600,000 and 12.000,-
000. With a valuation of $20,000,000 It is
figured that the assessment will be about
one-third of the actual value.
Mayor Koutsky has already selected Ms
man for a member of the board of review
and the same may be said of Treasurer
Howe. So that all that remains now Is
for the names to be read to the city coun
ell and confirmed by that body. Apart
ments outside of the city hall will be se
cured for the sitting of the board, probably
the rooms used last year, in the old Sloane
building, will be rented again.
Very Brief Ceremony.
All of the plans of the local post of the
Grand Army of the Republlo regarding
Memorial day celebration had to be aban
doned on account of the Inclement weather.
Only half a dosen veterans met at the
hall at the appointed hour. This handful
of old soldiers, clad in rain coats, pro
ceeded to Laurel Hill cemetery and dec
orated the graves of the soldiers and
sailors who were burled there. There was
no parade of any sort. The city offices
remained closed all day; so did the banks.
There was only one delivery of mail and
that was early in the morning. Aside from
the closing of the places of business men
tioned the day was passed ths same as
any other.

nuffed out by the fir.t two shots fired at
them. Eight glass balls were then hung
upon nails upon the target and It was set
swinging rapidly. Mr. Frantmsthes held '
he gun right-handed snd smashed the 1
eight balls in quick succession, never mls-
ng a shot. Eight more were put on and I
he smashed these, shooting left-handed.
Then he smashed eight, shontlng with the
gun held upside down, then he stood with
his bark to the swinging target, aimed the
gun between his legs, and broke eight, not
missing one. Next he stood with his back
to the target, and, with the gun over his
shoulder, aimed by aid of the reflection of
the swinging target In a mirror and broke
eight balls.
The next shot will be s very difficult
one," said Mr. Ffanimathes. "The world s
champion shooter, Winona, breaks twenty
balls In sixteen seconds upon a stationery
target I will break ten balls upon a swlng-
ng target In twelve seconds and then I
will break sixteen balls upon a stationery
target In eight seconds."
He did exactly as he said lie would, mlss-
ng only one hot out of the whole lot.
He hung from a string a clockwork ar
rangement that revolved horizontally a long
stick; at each end of the stick was a string
with a glass ball attached. As these balls
revolved rapidly he smashed them both
with two shots that came so close together
It seemed almost like a single report.
C. II. Sutherland, his assistant, stood
thirty feet away 'with a cheroot In his
mouth and with the first shot Mr. Frans
inathes knocked off the ashes.
The last shot was the moat difficult of all.
Mr. Sutherland stood thirty feet distant
with a thin business card at arm's length
held by a corner between his thumb and
forefinger. The thin edge of the card was
toward the shooter, who could barely see
it so far away. The bullet was scarcely
more than one-eighth of an Inch In di
ameter, yet the first shot struck the card
fair upon Its edge and cut It In two as
clean as a sharp knife would do It. He
repeated this shot a halt dosen times, never
falling to hit the edge of the card, but not
always cutting It In two.
When I was 18 years old," said Mr.
Franxmathes, "I practiced shooting every
day for two years, and became very ex
pert I did not shoot then for fifteen years,
until a month ago, when I again took It
up and practiced a long time every day
here in my dancing academy. The month's
practice has made me as expert as you
have Just seen."
What faculties are needed to make a
good shot?" he was asked.
'The faculty of having the eye and hand
work together In perfect harmony. Shoot
ing is perfectly automatic with me. I aim
the gun and the moment my eye catches

automatically pulls the trigger. It Is this

gulf and through the canal than they oan
be moved directly to the Paciflo coast by
the all rail foute. It was not stated
whether the proposed line from Omaha to
the gulf was to be directly connected with
the Canadian line, but the Impression Is
given out that It Is to be independent and
to seek to form trsfflo arrangements with
the lines to the north and with a packet
line on the gulf, giving through service
from the Dominion to the Atlantic ports
and Europe at the present time and to
Pacific ports and ths Orient as soon as the
canal is In operation. It Is expected that
representatives of the Investors will pass
over the proposed route In a short time.
but the Idea of Intercstl.vr local capital In
the construction of the road has been
abandoned.
