all but four being white women. The
oldest person to die was a colored male,
who was 125. A white man died at St

there was no proof that he was over

There were 14 people whose ages

There is much suffering in Cuba,

must bo added the sacking and burn-

What an awful lot of wicked people—
what wicked set I was getting among
ertures to surrender and It Is known | on Bitter
that the deputy marshals refused to ac-
cept his surrender. Now this invention
has It that Doolin was asked to allow
himself to be captured and that his
wife knows about It, that she was the
go-between and for his capture was
promised part of the reward, and a
light sentence. It Is claimed along this
line that It Is not usual for deputy
marshals to be scouting about Kureka
Springs, Arkansas, and that Doolin for
a shooter gave up mighty easy.
But nevertheless the story can be put
down as one of those strange roman-
ces with which a new country Is full.
No outlaw has ever been captured or
shot in Oklahoma without some ru-
mor of the kind following. There are
hundreds of men In tin- territory to-
day who will never believe that BUI
Dalton was shot in the Chickasaw na-
tion; and there ■. hundreds of others
who bell.-ve that Dynamite Dick and
Slaughter Kid were killed treacherously
and not in an open fight as reported.
Men believe these things, not only <>n
any evldone, but simply because a new
country develops the bump of suspic-
i <ri on every man's head.
In this latest story there Is nothing
to substantiate. Marshal Nix and his
deputies have made a gallant fight on
outlawry. They have sacrificed them-

the common "heritage of mankind.
"And," he added, "in the presence of
the son of him who, at Appomattox ro-
fuscd to accept the sword of bee, anil
bade him tell his battle-scarred veter-
ans to go iu peace, it is titting that we,
remnants of that raid, should proclaim
in no uncertain tones that nffection
and veneration which we offer up in
common with the boys in blue to the
memory of him than whom none
braver ever buckled belt or as bee—tho
immortal Ulysses S. Grant." These

A DEATH-DEALING GUN.

NI.w Yokk, -M. — A new auto-
matic rapid-firo gun has been adopted
by the navy department after careful
and exacting tests. In its operation
the gases of the powder are utilized to
throw out the empty shells and feed
in the fresh cartridges. The whole
machine, after one movement of a
U'ver by hand, is worked by tho ex-
pansion of tin- gases without interfer-
ing with the efliciencvof the explosive
in propelling the bullet. The operator
merely sets tho gun up on a three-
1 egged platform, trains it on a given
object and pulls a trigger like that of a
pistol, and the gun goes on liring. A
continuous tiro may be kept up at tho
rate of 400 shots n minute as long as
may be desired. Fight thousand rounds
were fired during a recent test, and
the gun is said to have gone through
t<ie trial without showing any wear.
