“Be ye agoln’ to swear away the
life of your own son—our son. Mary?”
The old man's voice quavered and
sunk into a whine.
‘I'm goin' to tell the truth.” re-
plied the old woman with a weary
smile. "He threw it away himself
and killed his brother—my baby. I
saw him do it, and I’m goin’ to tell
the truth and let him be punished."
“But Tom’s your boy too, Mary—
your oldest,” persisted the old man.
"What’s he ever done to show it?”
cried the woman fiercely. "He struck
me—yes, struck me with his own
hands not once, but twenty time3.
Aye, and he struck you too, Nat. I
seen him do it more'n once. What
comfort has he ever been to us?
What pride have we in him, what
hope for his future? No, no, Nat, we
might as well give up and call our
lives a failure. He’s been a bad boy,
and he’s a bad man, and he’s killed
his own brother, and I won’t do any-
thin’ to save him.’
But he was In licker when he did
It," pleaded the old man. "You know
Tom was not very had except when
he was in licker. And he wasn’t him-
self when he did it. And he feels as
sorry as anybody for it now. Not
the gallows! Ah! Mary, not the gal-
lows!” and he slipped from his chair
onto his knees and sobbed before her.
“Where's Peter?” demanded the
woman, drawing back her skirts,
which the man attempted to cling
pathetically to. “Where’s my Pete,
who never did a wrong to anybody,
and who always was bullied and
licked by Tom? 1 won’t save him, I
tell you I wont.”
The day of the trial came, and the
prosecuting attorney arose calm and
confident. Here was an easy case,
and it promised to be brief. He
would get a quick conviction and the
accompanying glory and would hurry
along other cases and show a dispatch
of business which would reflect great
credit upon his office. The convic-
tion was sure because the boy’s moth-
er was to go on the stand to testify
against him. It was a lucky thing,
because she had been the only wit-
ness of the murder, and without her
testimony only the weakest sort of
circumstantial evidence would have
to be relied on. But he had it from
her own lips that she proposed to tell
the truth and bring the murderer to

brother Tom. As nearly as could be

lauguage used to the old mother.
It would be a good thing for the
community, moreover, to get rid of
Tom Harter. He always had been a
bad egg. and a menace to peaceable,
law-abiding citizens. Yes. it was a
good thing all around, and the prose-
cuting attorney was very complacent

CANEY FIRE EXTINGUISHED
After Burning for Thirty-four Day*,
the G*s Well is Capped
CANEY, KANS: Lghtning struck
a big gas well near this place on the
evening of February 2.’i and ever
since that time, until extinguished by
placing a big hood over the flames,
It has continued to burn. A number
of attempts have been made to
smother the flames, but owing to the
intense heat and pressure it was
found to be next to impossible to do
anything with it. A large hood was
made to fit over the well, but two at-
tempts were made before it was suc-
cessfully placed. After the first fail-
ure it was announced the hood method
of fighting the fire would be
abandoned. General Manager Mc-
Dowell, Superintendent Landon, |
Chief Engineer Welsh and Fore-
man Gavin were more dis-
couraged than they would admit.
Later, they held a conference with
other representatives or the company,
and it was decided to make another
attempt along the same lines, but with
some changes. The second trial
proved successful. The subduing of
this well is regarded among oil men
as the greatest achievement in the
history of natural gas. No other fire
of equal size was ever extinguished.
The big Moses in West Virginia,
burned a year, and many smaliei
wells have been known to burn for
It cost $25,000 to put out the fire,
and will cost thousands more to shut
the gas in so as to control It.

During this testimony the prisoner
and his father had leaped to their
feet, the former w’ith amazement de-
picted on his face, the latter with
tears starting to his eyes, while the
prosecuting attorney sat back with
mouth wide open, so thoroughly par-

Relatives Believe He Was Throttled
by a Companion
MUSKOGEE: Mystery surrounds the
death of John Mode, who was found
dead in the road five miles south
Braggs, on March 4. The father of
the dead man believes he was mur-
dered by a drunken companion, and
was in Muskogee trying to secure
warrant for the arrest of the man un-
Mode was returning home from
Braggs with a number of companions
and it is said he had been drinking.
The next morning his dead body was
found lying face downward. There
were no marks on the body, but the
throat was swollen as if Mode had
been choked to death. No inquest was
held, as there are no coroners in In
dian Territory, but relatives of the
dead man have been investigating and
believe they have strong circumstan-
tial evidence that Mode was choked
to death during a quarrel with one of
his companions and left lying by the
Cherokee Indian Charged With
Killing of His Bride
Ml SKOGEE: Felix Rees, a Chero-
kep. was arrested and placed in jail
hero charged with the murder of his
bride, whose maiden name was Lila
Fox, and to whom he had been mar-
ried but three weeks. The murder
occurred in the country at the Reese
home eght miles southeast of Mus-
kogee. A bullet entering the back
of the head and a stab from a knife
in her neck tells the tale of a foul
murder. Fox, a brother of the mur-
dered woman came to Muskogee and
swore out a warrant for the arrest of
Felix Reese, charging him with the
murder of his wife. The evidence is
ail circumstantial. The body was
found about two hundred yards from
the house. Near it was a cigar box
which contained a lot of personal let-
ters and was known to have contained
$G5 when it was taken from the house.
The money was gone. There is also
a credit of $2,000 in one of the Mus
kogee banks to Mrs. Felix Reese. She
sold her allotment a short time ago
for $2,500. Her brother believes that
Felix Reese murdered her in order to
get her money. No one else has been
seen about the place. Tracks lead
direct from the house to where the
body w’as found, the tracks of a man
and woman. Tracks also lead back
to the house, these fit the shoes
Felix Reese exactly. When arrested
he was at the house assisting in the
burial preparations of his wife.

The Foxy Witte is Tired of His Job
and Claims III Health
ST. PETERSBURG: Since the sit-
ting of the council of the empire
March 19, at which Premier Witte
made an enigmatical statement which
was not interpreted by many members
of the council as a virtual declaration
that his career as premier was ended
and that he would be succeeded by
Privy Counsilor KoKOVsoff, former
minister of finance, the premier has
not attended the.sessions of the coun
cil and his continued absence adds col-
or to the rumors of his retirement at
an early date. The Associated Press is
positively informed that the premier’s
resignation based on the grounds ol
ill health, is before the emperor. This
however, is not admitted at the pre
mier’s chancellory. The general belie!
in high quarters is that if Count Witte
retires it will not be M. Kokovsoff but
M. Goremykin, former minister of the
interior, or General Count Ignatieff,
member of the reactionary party, whe
will succeed him. The combination
of the reactionaries is understood tc
be M. Goremykin for premier and M
Ignatieff for minister of the interior

Only One Remedy.
Edwin James was one of the most
brilliant English lawyers of his day.
At one time he lived in some West
End chambers, the landlord of which
could never obtain rent. At last he
had recourse to an expedient which
he hoped would arouse his tenant to a
sense of his obligations. He asked
him if he would be kind enough to ad-
vise him on a little legal matter in
which he was concerned, and on
James’ acquiescing, drew up a state-
ment specifying his own grievance
against the learned counsel and asked
him to state what he considered the
best course for a landlord to take un-
der such conditions.
The paper was returned to the land-
lord the next morning with the fol-
lowing sentence subjoined: "In my
opinion, this is a case which admits
of only one remedy—patience."_
