There seems to be litllo doubt about
the man's identity as the description
given by the authorities in Georgia is
a perlect one of this man. The partic
ulars of the tragedy po far as learned
are these: I.eland left a wile in Ten-
nessee in almost destitute. circumstan-
ces and weut to Georgia where he ob-
tained a situation as guard of a con-
vict camp. While in Georgia he join
ed the Free Masons but a member i
learning of his past record preleried
charges and he was suspended from
the lodge. In retaliation Lelaud in
last April killed this man and in Octo-
ber appeared at Alton whero lie pro
fessed to bo a doctor. Ho secured some
practice aud as a result of his inca-
pacity one lady was sent almost to
death's door but a physician was sent
for in time to save her. I.eland was a
very genteel appearing mau and it is
not surpiising that he was able to pass
hlmsoif for a doctor a role hu was not
known to have essayed previously.
A Wife and Mother Oone.
Sunday at midnight the wife of our
fellow-citizen Geo. A. Armstrong
asaed from ennli. Her illness had
not tailed quite a week mid it was
scarcely twenty-four hours belore the
end ttiat the sad nnuonucement was
mado that there was no hope. Mrs.
Armstrong's houi-chold had passed
hopefully through tho epidemic which
has prevailed for some weeks; in her
caro for her cliildreu she postponed
the natural precautions for her own
safety. Before she had time to think
of herself it was too late; all that medi-
cal skill the care of anxious friends and
neighbors aud her own desire to keep
her life Bin.' give it to her children
could do. proved of no avail; the end
came with appalling suddenness. Mrs.
Armstrong will be remembered by all
who knew her for her personal comeli-
ness aud geniality of manner which
were but the signs of a comely and
genial nature; of a life devoted to use-
ful and beautiful aims; to work and
plan for berchildren to make the most
for them aud help tjieiu to make the
most of themselves was the aim of her
life and the secret of her genial and
happy natuie. Her household includ-
ed children not her own nor her hus-
band's and none will mourn her more
sincerely than these. She has earned
for her huibaud and children the re-
spect nud sympathy of the community
and her memoiy will be a precious heri-
tage for her children as long as anyone
is left who remembers her and the sin-
gular uuselflsbuess and devoteduess of
Rev. K. K. Quiggan a missionary of
the Society ol Friends will occupy the
pulpit of the Congregational church
Kev. E. C. Evans pastor of the I- irst
Congregational church of Springfield
as announced in last week's Chieftain
occupied the same pulpit last Sunday
and administered communion. Mr.
Kvaus preached to a large congr ga-
llon many of ilv. Allen's people hav-
ing come in consequence of the tatter's
absence. The sermon w as a clear and
forcible exposition of the difference
between mind belief and heart belief
or saving faith supplemented by rea-
sons why God deserves the allegiance
of every heart. The congiegation gave
Mr. Evans close and earneet attention
and after the services many warm ex-
pressions of Appreciation. Mr. Evans
with his wile and little daughter Kna
returned to Springfield greatly pleased
with their visit to ourplace aud people.
The IV. C. T. U. had its third open
meeting last Sunday evening at the
Presbyterian church; a large congrega-
tion was present no services having
been held in the other churches. Mrs.
Cacs presided. The programme in-
cluded duets by Misses Hulibell and
Curry; recitations by Jennie Uass aud
Bebie Hiabop and an address by Kev.
E. C. Kvans of Sptingfitd J Mo. Tbe
audience was impressed noticeably;
many signers came forward at the close
of the meeting. Tho W.C. T. U. is
gaining the public attention; its object
among Oiber things is to save this ter-
ritory from the business of soiling in-
toxicants w hen it has the power of de-
ciding for itself; they deserve the re-
operation of all good citiJ! -ns and tlif
indications aic that they wilt secure it
and w in success.

Industrial department la a feature addod In

wileotMr. C A Armstrong to whom she
was msrried seventeen years sg i on the day
of her dca'.h In them two congenial natures
met and blended . j ilsl as Iv. o ri vers meet and
mingle their w atel t. togel her. She w as His
mother of lour children one son aud three
daughters lor whom she had an untold w ealth
of arTeelmii . Mie had a heart I aruu enough to
lovelier parents her hutbnud her children
and then her friends and thev were many.
She w as one of those rvuikI . unuy natures I list
csrrv good cheer and Mnifchluo eterjtthere.
Iter wer ls n ere km I her dceN loving her
experience rheerlul her voice so musical and
Inspiring thai 11 was alino'. I mpnssihle to feel
gloomy in her presence Not only did her
husbai.d and children enjoy her happy nature
and cheerfulness for she was ever rrady to
lend a helping hand to the poor the sick and
atrticte I and many are the lr ends in Vluila
and her country home w ho w ill long remem-
ber her for kindness show n them w hen It waa
most needed. Mie liihored in love with won-
derful strength of mind and bogy until aeven
days before her death when she was rather
suddenly stricken with Inflammatory rheu-
matism but was not thought 1 be dsngeronsly
sick until twenty-four hours before the lest
and w as the lirst lo realise her condition and
spoke of It to her hiisbtuid end friends
who were watching with tier Then her
greatest si'liiittlde was for her children
and ekpecially the little girl who has been
very ill for Uie pa-.t three w eels.
1 he announcement i her death was a shock
to the entire town and vicinity and many
were the tears shed tiy those who bore no
other relation to her than that of friend and
ariinai ntance . The funeral services werecon-
dueted at the Methodist cuurcti by the pastor
Uev I.. W. Kivers to a large company of
friends who deeply sympathise with the lonely
husband and the motherless children. May
the Father who lovvlh llie little ones and
caretti for those who are heavy-hearted and
cast dow n be the Inend and comiorter In that
broken household .
