who herself took a drink. The
woman then went into an adjoin-, from which she speedily
returned with a strong cord or
rope arranged in the form of a
noose. Smiling and talking pleas­
antly all the time, she stepped be­
hind her visitor, and dropping the
noose over her head and arms, with
a sudden jerk she soon bound the
young girl helpless to the chair.
“ Now ” said the woman, “ you shall
see how I will avenge myself, ”
whereupon from a table drawer
she took a pair of shears, a large
knife and a revolver, all of which
implements she spread upon the ta­
ble before her victim, by this time
ready to faint with terror.
The torritentor’s next step was
to cut off the girl’s hair as close as
possible to the skin, leaving only
a single handful on top of the head,
for the purpose, as she explained,
of facilitating the subsequent oper­
ation of scalping. The girl
screamed and called for help as
loudly as she could, but the house
stands in a lonely place and no
deliverer appemxcL After cutting
off the hair, Mrs. X. brought a
looking-glass that Ida might see
the change produced in her appear­
ance. As the girl fo gged for re­
leasesaying, that she was freezing,
she was told, with a plentiful ap­
plication of mocking epithets, that
she would be warm enough before
slie got away. Mrs. X. then put the
poker in the st^ve,and while calm­
ly waiting for it to become red-
hot, she told her yictim what she
intended to do with it. “ First, I
Will burn your eyes out,” etc., etc.
And she really began to execute
her threats, but when she was try­
ing to blind the girl, the latter, by
a super-human effort, succeeded in
releasing one of her hands, with
which she seized the gfowing poker
and for a while arrested the mon­
ster in the perpetration of her
crime. | This interruption made it

the meantime the unlooked-for
return of ths husband was all that
saved the girl from prolonged tor­
ture and death at the hands of
Mrs. X.
• /T he B ottom of I t .—A young
drug clerk committed suckle in
Bristol, a few days ago. At the
inquest, the Corner asked a fellow
clerk of the deceased if he knew of
any cause for the sucide. ’’No,”
was the reply; ” he was getting
along very nicely, and was going
to bo married next mouth.” “Go­
ing to be married next month,
was he?” exclaimed the Coroner.
“That will do. We’ve got at the
bottom of this buisness.”

of the committee of citizens to
make any impression upon the
President by their visit to Wash­

admit that the committee was*
made up of some of the oldest and
most respectable citizens of tho
State. The Republican sneers at
their efforts to change the opinion
of the President by any array
of facte, and assures the conspira­
tors that the persuasive efforts of
any number of delegates will not i
avail to shake his purposes, for,
says the Republican, “he has made
