be covered in easy stages in about five

who hid their boys good by, for, while
the march is not considered dangerous,
or in any way a strain on the boys'
endurance, still the feeling lingers that
perhaps something might happen to the
dear boy. and he never be again seen
alive. Eureka is sending a fine exhibit
to the i.ew is and Clark Exposition, in
these sixty lads, who are the pick of the
club of nearly 150 boys. They were in
fine spirits and looked very soldiery
in their khaki uniformH, with blankets
acro-s their shoulders, canteens on the
hip, flags flying, drums beating, and
the cheers of our citizens as they
marched along the streets.

Weapon with intent to kill John Fletch
er, yesterday afternoon, at 5 o'clock, re
turned a verdict of guilty , after deliber
ating a little over two hours. The attor
neys for the defendant, L. Bilyeu and
Medley .t Johnson, have filed a motion
for a new trial.
On the night of March " last, while
Hranton ami Fletcher were returning
from Cottage Urove to Braoton's home,
two miles out in the country, Fletcher
was shot in the head, resulting in the
loss of one eye and a badly disfigured
face. Fletcher accused Branton of try
ing to kill him in order to get the 3000
insurance money which he carried in
the Woodmen o( the World order in
Branton favor. On the other hand,
Kranton said that Fletcher fired the shot
in an attempt to commit suicide, be-rau-e
a ceruiu woman of Cottage Cirove
had spurned his offt-rs of love.
The case has ereated a great deal of

Lodz, June 24. Since the arrival of
reinforcements this morning actual fight
ing in the city has stopped, hot the out
break is by no means ijuelled. ami fresh
collisions are expected momentarily.
The city resembles a shambles, and the
terrible scenes of the last two daya will
never be wiped from the memory of the
Polish people. Altogether ten regiments
are encamped in Lodz.
The fighting spirit of the people is ful
ly aroused. They have tasted Wood,
and want more Certainlv the revolu
tion .is abroad, and it remains to be
seen whether military measures will
have the same effect as previously.
Today at Baluty, a suburb of Lodx,
four Cossacks were killed and 16
wounded by a bomb, which was thrown
into their barracks. Twenty-tbree of
their horses were killed.
Occassional volleys are still fired by
police or gendarmes in response to shots
from houses.
The soldiers are showtng what ap
pears to be wanton cruelty. Late this
afternoon they shot and killed two wo
men, a mother and her daughter.
The funeral of victims of the shooting
of Thursday and Friday took place to

It is quite impossible to give the
exact number of killed and wounded, as
