And Mur dered ELMER HILL CHARGED WITH CRIME A crime the like of which never be fore was committed in this part of the State was perpetrated near Mt Olive school house about three miles from Russell Springs in Russell county late Tuesday afternoon last week Mamie Wormack a daughter of Mr Logan Wormack eleven years Old was a pupil in a school that is being taught about one mile from the home of her parents and when school was dismiss ed on the afternoon above mentioned she started home in company with other pupils small girls and they were all together until they got within three hundred yards of where Mamie Wor mack lived Here the girls turned into another road which led to their respec tive homes Mamie starting alone to her house She had not gone more than fifty yards when she was seized and dragged into the woods assaulted and murdered her head being beaten into pulp The above facts were developed when Mamie failed to reach her parents home and when she was found dead in the woods by parties who had gone in search of her The whole country was immidiately aroused bloodhounds ordered from Lincoln county and placed on the trail of the murderer the nan suspected being Elmer Hill a cousin of the little girl and who lived in the same neigh borhoodIThe dogs followed the trail through Russell county and into Adair and finally lost the scent at Long View two miles from Columbia- A large crowd of detirmined men was with the dogs from the start and while the trail was lost about 11 oclock Thursday a m the hunt for the incarnate devil was by no means abandoned and every effort will be continued until the scoundrel is caught Perhaps no crime was ever committed in this part of Kentucky which aroused the indignation of more people Hun dreds of men have been searching the woods since the awful deed was perpe trated and their procedure and expressions plainly tell that Judge Lynch would sit in judgment should the guilty party be apprehended Elmer Hill who is accused is about 23 or 25 years old light comple ted and will weigh about 150 or 160 pounds and has an impediment in his speech He is a man of bad reputation Twenty or thirty men from Russell county a searching party were here Thursday and one of the leaders informed the News that there was not a doubt as to Hills guilt The parents of the little victim are distressed almost to death and the good people of Russell county are cry ing for vengeance- It is hoped by every body that the- brute in human form will be caught and if he should be there is scarcely a doubt as to the punishment whichwill follow quickly after his apprehension LATERThe accused was caught Sunday morning in an outbuilding asleep near Sano Adair county His captors were Wolford Wilson and a young man named Shepherd As above stated bloodhounds were on the trail of the murderer for several days losing the scent at the Long View in this county From this point it is believed that Hill made his way back to Russell county and from Russell county he went into Adair where he was caught and landed in the Jamestown Jail Sun day morning before daylight About 9 ocock Sunday morning an examining trial was called by H H Dunbar County Judge of Russell An examination was wavied and the accus ed remanded to jail until 8 oclock Monday morning when he was to again be presented to the Court All day Sunday Jamestown was full of men and mob talk was freely indulg inBetween 9 and 10 olocck Sunday night a mob numbering between sixty and seventyfive men entered James town went to the jail for the purpose of taking Hill out and hanging him but the accused had been spirited away by officers When the mob failed to find the prisoner in the jail the next move was to search several dwellings in the town Failing to find the man the mob quitely rode out of town It is almost certain that the officers carried Hill to the Monticello jail for safe keeping as It is known that they crossed Greasy creek going in that direction at 7 oclock Monday morn ing Ye l rfrom a reliable source had v I JttieToriob secured Hill at the Jailkall l I A Y i r arrangements had been made to burn hint alive Hex would have been car ried to the place where the horrible crime was commmitted and there cre mated Mrs Wormack the mother of the dead girl having agreed to start the fire A reward of 350 will be paid if Hill is convicted 250 by the State and 100 by Russell county The States reward was offered on the 12th and the arrest was make on the 13th The News called Jamestown Monday morning and talked to a prominent citizen He said that he did not think himself that a mob would visit the Wayne county jail but that there were many who did not agree with him The excitement in Russell county is still very high Sixteen Days in a Cave Nigger the black dog belohging to Mr Blucher Bohanan who lives on Mr R K Youngs farm near Columbia caught a crow one night in November and in the tussle it got away and en tered a cave with Nigger in hot pur suit For two or three days no special alarm was felt for Niggers safty as he was known to be very determined but as he did not come out in that time his owner became uneasy and began work in earnest to secure his freedom The bark of the dog could be plainly heard but the opening being between two heavy layers of stone and too small for a person to enter it was near ly impossible to locate him or to determine the real trouble At any rate Mr Bohanan used dynamite and powder for several days and nights in trying to reach him but made but little head way The rescue was abandoned and Nigger was left to his fate about 10 or 12 days On the 16th day Mr Bohan ans little girl 10 or 12 years old went to the cave and called the dog and he could be plainly heard begging for help This affected the little girl arousing her symphathy to the highest point She went to the house and begged to be allowed to crawl into the cave but just at that moment Nigger came walk ing up He had gained his freedom after sixteen days and nights under the earth and while weak and thin he was all right and ready for a hunt the next day Willing to Call a Speaial Term Judge Baker is at home this week being kept from the Monroe court by the sickness of his son H T Baker We understand he has under consideration the calling of a special team of the Russell Court as soon as practica ble that a grand jury may investigate the killing of Mamie Wormack and if an indictment is found that a speedy trial may be had and he will at once communicate with the authorities in Russell in reference to the matter and cooperate with them in legal steps to this end In the meantime the people should be patient and give the law an opportun ity to vindicate itself When it does so by the conviction and punishment of the criminal the effect will be worth more by a thousand time than any mob action which may be taken in vio lation of law Heavy Damages Last Thursday night Fred McLean received word that his sister Mrs EI L Hamilton had been awarded a judg ment for six thousand and and five hundred dollars against the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company by a jury in Memphis Tenn for injuries suffered in a wreckon the railroad near Horse Cave Ky several years ago while returning to her home at Mc Crory Ark after a visit to relatives in this city It was the second trial of

that city and in four months preaching to that congregation many additions have been added Recently the South Side Baptist Church of that city and the Calvery Baptist Church consolidated and there was a unamimoiis call for Bro Cook which was accepted The Pastors Association of Denison has elected Bro Cook President of the organization and will endeavor in many ways to make him feel at home m his new field I1fip reported here that four or five members of the mob which visited Jamestown jail Sunday night were in advance ot the main squad and were stationed about the bastile in order to prevent the spiriting away of Hill be fore the mob arrived but notwithstanding that precantion Hill was taken out by officers and conveyed out of town on the read leading to Monticello to which place he was taken Monday morning We understand that the grandfather of the accused says their is proof sufficient to hang his grandson and that he hopes that the law will be allowed to take its course M H Thatcher State Inspector and Examiner in a statement filed with Gov Willson last Wednesday declares that the system of collection of jury fees by the Circuit Court Clerks is very laxand that the clerks are liable to the State on their bonds for delinquent jury fees He further says that the statutes provide that immediately upon the return of a verdict into Court the jury fee becomes due to the State from the successful litigant and that it should be at once paid to the State Circuit Clerks should take notice and govern themselves accordingly Rev E F Goodson one of the abl est preachers in the Louisville Confer ence was here last Sunday and filled the pulpit at the Methodist church fore noon and evening Large congrega tions were out and the two discourses were entertaining and very helpful At present Rev Goodson is Secretary of the Laymens Missionary movement of the Louisville Conference Adair county has a claim on this distinguished devine his mother having been born and reared

so doing he fell and was considerably bruised about the face and hands He was unable to leave his bed Thursday The farmer who is not up with his work in this part of the country is to be pitied for he is a man who has more than is possible to accomplish or has whiled away his time while the beauti ful autumn weather passed The truth is that last fall was the most pleasant and most inviting for outdoor employ ment than was ever known in this sec tion of country before So anyone who failed to make use of the warm dry weather made a huge mistake In withdrawing from the race for the Democratic

writing a short letter to your paper which I hope will find a space in your columns I left Russell Springs Oct 12 landed inNew Mexico stayin there about one week I was not very favorably impressed with that country for what I saw of it was either too new for me or was too old for it So I le there and landed in this city We have been here nearly 5 weeks enjoying fine weather and goo health The climate here is fine The soil is not so very rich but produces well Most of the broken out land is cultivated in aretnow picking oranges where they can find sale for them It only frosts in this valley although J we can see mountains of snow within 20 miles of here nearly all the year t Land can be bought here at from 10 to 600 per acre but be cause it brings these prices it i no reason in my mind that it a worth it but these land sharps here try awful hard to make on think it especially a tenderfoot and most of them gets a slice of his pie It seems to me that nearly every line of business here

In giving his reasons for cummuting the sentence of Hocker to a life term in the penitentiary Gov Willson said in a long opinion that he didnot think that Hocker had premediately committed the crime

or clover hulls and tramped in the sheep shed Keep it dry readyI to haul it out Its n9t the color of the hogs hair nor his pedigree which counts on market day The scales tell the story as to what he

The deficit in the National Treasurery under Republican rule seems to3 be lightly considered t by Republican publications yet under Mr Cleveland theses me journals were howling every day and drawing the dark est pictures The way out of the trouble hasalready been an nounced issue bonds It is now contemplated to place another large bond issue to tide over the trouble and yetwe are told that the future is brightning that safe and sound gQvernment man agement is in forces Many of the people believe the statement but many are apprehensive and believe that amore economical poll y shouldcircumscribe the governments course Already the present administration has placed many millions of dollars in bonds and now it is to be re peated High living in Wash ington extravagance rampant and the government plunging into debt do not forebode good nor indicate permanent pros perity With no wars without and no feuds within with the productive powers of our coun try increased and the markets of the world open for our surplus such a degree of extremity can- noti be justified and such a course can not be endorsed for in the end it must all come from the f people through taxes The peo pIe of this section and this State would not even agree to bond the country or the State for the pur r pose of securing badly needed improvements and yet many of them are endorsing National in r

to the country to inland commerce to the entire people than any other improvement on the long list of needs and desires To bond the country for this pur pose ought to meet the approval of all the people it would be forda few big developments where but few comparatively enjoy the benefits is npt evenhanded justice not fair to the people and ought to be condemned The crime committed last week in the neighborhood of Russell Springs elsewhere given1 in this issue isone that shocks and horrifies every individual who hears of it In the catalogue of crime in the depth of human depravity it marks the extreme limits of beastly lust and destruction No country has ever had a more horrid mur der and nodemon has ever ex ecuted a more hellish crime A sweet little girl not quite eleven years of age innocent and pure as a new born flower happy and joyful nearing her mothers side after a day in school almost at the door step of her home seized by a brute in human form car ried to the woods outraged and then murdered to hide the crime No punishment is adequate to compensate no court of justice too speedy to inflict it A precious life in its budhood blotted out in the most barbarous manner at an unexpected hour within the shadow of a school days twylight almost within the grasp of her parents That human vengence should be arroused to the highest tention could not be otherwise that mercy should be shown to the murderer couldnot bs imagined and justice speedy and sure must be handed out Appauling and shocking as the crime is as just deserving of death as the slayer is and as cer tam as the people are that they have the guilty party in the clutches of the law so sure ought they to be willing to let the law apply the punishment No rash act should be committed for there is no avenue of escape for the guilty party when convinc ing evidence of guilt confronts a jury Without such evidence guilt can not be established in or outside of court and no people would be true to

Feat of Pluck Strength and Endurance That Won the Pen napt For Providence In 1884A Rec ord In Games Won Pitchers may come and pitchers may go but the name of Old Hoss Rad bourne goes on forever I have talked to many great ball players who have lamented to me the fact that baseball fame is so ephemeral that it was not worth the gaining and while no doubt this is in a great measure true there is one pitcher who has left a name that promises to roll on for many many years Each year hundreds of pitchers claim attention of the world and each year they are promptly forgotten But Illinois produced a man who although now years deceased has a brighter name than any of the great multitude In the great campaign of 1884 when the Providence club then a member of the National league was fighting a bit ter game with Philadelphia a catastro phe occurred that seemingly would disrupt its chances of winning the pen Want A player named Sweeney who was pitching was ordered t6 go into right field to change places with Cy clone Miller At that time it was not permissible to take a pitcher out of the a game Whereupon Sweeney promptly walked out of the game leaving the team with only eight men and with one pitcher Charles Kadbonrne Two men tried to cover the field with the result that Providence was completely snowed under A meeting- of the directors was held to decide whether or not the club should be dis banded Certaiiilj a professional team was never in a sorrier plight Radbourne was approached and the propositioltput to him I can win it all right said he quietly and in a matter of fact tone And then followed the most remark i able battle for a pennant that the world has ever seen Radbourne es tI ftabhsl1ed a record that has never been equaled one that will live when more expensive contests will have been blissfully forgotten Of twentysever consecutive games Radbourne won twentysix In four games with Bos ton he had three shutouts only one run was scored and only seventeen hits were made This defeat was suf fered at the hands of Buffalo by a score of 2 to 0 and even then only live hits were made off him showing that the defeat was not due to poor pitching Needless to say Providence won the pennant or rather Rad bourne won the pennant But the great player had to pay the price No arm could stand the awful ti strain without great agony Morning after morning when Radbourne arose he could not lift his arm as high as his waist He had to brush his hair with his left hand But he did not give up the game He would slip out to the park about two hours before the rest of the team put in an ap pearance and would begin the excru dating process of limbering up He would pitch the ball only a few feet when he would first go out but he would keep on trying time after time Tubbing his arm with his left hand Sometimes his face would be drawn up into contortions but never a word of complaint left his lips Half an hour before the game was to begin the players would slip out to see how Old Hoss was getting along They would sit silently on the bench waiting for his arm to get into condi tion When he was able to throw from second to home base a rousing cheer would go up for they knew that

before him and close beside ita blank con tract Radbourne looked at them both r for several minutes and then slowly took up a pen and filled the blank out for a sum only 2000 higher than hex had been

young busi ness man in the city of B His wife was a woman of strong emotion and most delicate perceptions Between them there existed a rare sympathy which extended to all the faculties Mrs Jones fell ill and after a few weeks agony during which her husI band waited on her with a constancy not often seen she diedthat is she appeared to be dead There was no question about it in the doctors mind

on the third day was buried in a cemetery some distance away Her husband was greater affected s much that his relatives feared an at tack of melancholia His uncle wish ing to arouse his spirits and divert attention remained in the house the night after the funeral and was a valuable witness as it proved of an event so astounding as to be almos beyond belief For an hour of two that evening they talked chiefly about the dead and then went to bed Mr Jones after tossing upon his pillow for a long time fell into a troubled sleep In the middle of the night he heard a voice caning his name George George The tones were not familiar to him they did not recall the voice of his wife Still conceiving himself the victim o a dream he again went to sleep I was daybreak before the voice was heard again and this time it could not be ignored He recognized it at last as the voice of his wife in sore dis tress calling upon him She cried George Save me Save me George He sprang out of bed trembling allover That despairing cry still rang ii his ears So real was it that although he was awake and remembered perfectly the death the funeral and all that happened in the preceding foui days he searched the room for her who had thrice called him by name Finding that he was alone he rushed into his uncles room crying Getup Get up We must go to the cemetery She is alive She is calling me The uncle skeptical as he was by nature was carried away by Jones impetuosity Both men threw on some clothing and while one harnessed horse to a light buggy the other pro cured spades Thus equipped they drove to the cemetery at a gallop The sun rose as they leaped out at the grave and began to dig Mrs Jones had been buried the pre vious afternoon Her husband shovel ed away the earth in a frenzy of energy It was firmly fixed in his mind that she had been buried alive and that he might yet be in time to save her Inspired by his nephews excite ment the uncle dug with a vigor al most as great as Jones Begrimed and disheveled they at last reached the coffin and wrenched off the lid Jones shrieked His wif- was moving She was trying feebly tc turn over in her narrow bed She gazed at him with eyes that saw not She was unconscious of her situation He passed his arms about her and lifted her out The two men removed her from the grave placed her in the buggy and drove home Physicians were called in Under close medical care she slowly recovered Every precaution was taken to guard her from- the knowledge of what had happened and all who were in the secret pledged themselves to silence lest the shock of that revelation of her burial and resurrection might prove fatal to her but the story leaked out later when Mrs Jones got about againBalti more Sun 1She Got a New Pair Sarcasticus and his

a Pleasant Opting In a- New Auto Car A well known author who fox some years has been an enthusiastic admirer of the automobile had an amus ing experience which she describes in the Bohemian A new model alA ways attracted her attention she declares and when she came out of the New York hotel where she was stay ing and saw a fine new car standing unoccupied by the curb she stopped to admire it While I examined it and gazed with envy a friend also interested in autos came own the steps and approached the machine Isnt it stunning he said- I agreed enthusiastically and added that the machine was tantalizing me as I did so long to take a spin that my chauffeur was ill and that I was afraid to run my car through the city Why I will take you he said I havent anything to do this afternoon Where shall we go1 We got in and I suggested Coney To make a long story short the de lightful ride gave us an appetite We stopped for dinner and then went out to Sea Gate to call upon friends As we were crossing the bridge on our way home at about 11 oclock my friend inquired At what garage do you keep your machine 1 At the question a terrible possibility dawned upon me and with the re membrance of a certain unfamiliarity that he had displayed at the first in regard to the running of the car the situation became instantly clear He had thought that the machine was mine and I had been equally secure in the belief that it was his In other words we had calmly gone off with some one elses property You may imagine our feelings We felt confident that we would be ar rested on our way uptown We rolled up to the hotel inwardly quaking After much inquiry and explaining we found the indignant owner For tunately he knew me slightly and had a well developed sense of humor in expresAIHis parting remark however was rather puzzling although he said it with evident cordiality Whenever youd like to use the ma chine again just let me know A SURPRISED CAT Gautiers Pet and Its Experience With a Parrot Of all cat stories the best is one told by Theophile Gautier the French nov elist He kept many cats the favor ite being Madame Theophile and she was his constant companion by day and night One day a friend who was going away a short time brought Gautier a parrot to be taken care of during his absence The bird finding itself in a strange place climbed up to the top of its perch in a rather frightened manner Madame Theophile had never seen a parrot before and regarded the creature with manifest surpriseAfter a period spent in profound meditation summoning up all the notions of natural history she had picked up in the yard the garden and on the roof she plainly came to the conclu sion that the newcomer was a green chicken This result attained the next proceeding of Madame Theophile was to lay herself flat on the floor like a panther watching her prey The parrot did not like this at all itruffled its feathers and rattled its chain uneasily Then Madame Theo phile came creeping nearer her nose quivering her eyes half closed while slight thrills of pleasure ran along her backbone at the idea of the meal she was about to make Another moment and she sprang upon the perch The parrot instantly straiJriitened up and said in a deep bass ce Have you breakfasted Jacko This utterance so tecd the cat that she sprang back All her ornithological ideas w rthrown And on what coi the

are there It is not known but most astronomers believe the number is not unlimited The argument is that with an infinite uni verse of stars the heavens would be one uniform blaze of light The more distant stars are of course dimmer some are too far away to affect the naked eye at all but no matter how slight the units an infinite number of them would produce the effect de scribedAs is no uniformly blazing sky the number of stars though possibly immensely great must be limited This argument is supplemented in recent astronomical paper by a aI one drawn from gravitation star no matter how distant exercises its own power of attraction on every other heavenly body including our earth However as the earths center is farther away from the attracting body than its surface is particles on the earths surface are attracted with greater force than those at the center and the practical result is to lessen the force with which the earths mass is held together Now if the number of stars is infinite this decrease would be so great that weight on the earth would practi cally cease to exist Moreover the same conditions would prevail every where throughout a boundless universe and probably all masses would be dis rupted That this result does not oc cur is a proof we are told that the number of heavenly bodies in exist ence is not infinite These arguments make certain as sumptions that may or may not be granted they can neither be proved nor disproved The argument from light as sumes that light waves are transmit ted through space without loss that from gravitation assumes that the same thing is true for gravitational attractionIf or gravitation is absorbed or lost in some way when passing from star to star the number of stars may be infinite after all At its best the speculation is more curious than con clusive Chicago RecordHerald STRENGTH OF AN EAGLE Wonderful Power In the Birds Claws and Legs While I cannot give any positive proof of how much a bald eagle can carry I should suppose declares a writer in Forest and Stream that he could carry at least as much in pro portion to his weight as a hawk or a horned owl I have the recorded weight of a male bald eagle weighing nine and a quarter pounds and a female weighing twelve pounds- A horned owl will weigh from four to five pounds and I have several times known one to carry off a large house cat One cat was very large and the owner told me he could hear the cat cry as he was being carried off Now any one who will weigh a large house cat will find it to weigh at least ten pounds- I have seen a goshawk carry off a hen fully twice its own weight and I have taken from a marsh hawk a very large chicken which would weigh more than twice what the hawk would The marsh hawk is one of our weak est hawks but he had carried this chicken over a quarter of a mile My belief is that if a hawk or horned owl can carry more than twice its weight and I know positively that they can then an eagle could if occasion re quired do as much in proportion to his weight which would be to carry eighteen or twenty pounds Once when an eagle shot through the body with a rifle ball lay on his back I up ended a long road skid and dropped it on him Before it reached him he stretched up and caught it in his claws and held it the length of his legs above him I walked up on the skid and stood above him and he easily held me and the skid which I should judge would weigh more than twenty pounds I took pains to be weighed the same day and weighed 119 pounds Put a stick in the claw of a wounded eagle and let him grasp a small tree with the other and a man must be stronger than I ever was to take the stick from him The Call of Egypt Egypt calls even across the space of the world and across the space of the
