Knoxvillk, Tenn., May 11. The de

Jonathan Bell, an old and well-to-do
man, lost his wife by death six weeks
ago. After two weeks he married a girl
seventeen years old, greatly to the dis
gust of his family. As time passed they
grew more dissatisfied and finally they
went in a body to the old man's home,
and taking the young wife out, stripped
her and gave her one hundred lashes.
On the following day, upon the com
plaint of Elder Bell . and one John
Ballew the whippers were arrested, but
released on bonds. Then they went to
Ballew's house to punish him for inter
fering. Ballew resisted and in a battle
which followed John Bell was killed.
"Big" and "Wild" Bell, Perham
Morton, Jack Johnson, three others,
were fatally shot, Johnson and "Big"
Bell since died and it is said others are
dying. There has been . no arrests.
Both sides are armed for warfare.

ITALIAN I'EOPLB INDIFFERENT.
The Politicians, However, Continue
to Talk Bis; and abuse the Ad
ministration. New York, May 9. The Herald pub
lishes another long cablegram from Pal
ermo, in which the correspondent says:
While I have found the common
people surprisingly indifferent as to the
actual dispute between the United States
and Italy over the New Orleans massa
cre, .the moment I turn to a politician
the tone changes. Prince Camporeale
is probably the foremost man in Sicilian
politics today. He declared that the
slaughter of the prisoners made a very
deep impression upon the ' people, ancl
that nothing but a trial of the lynchers
and payment of indemnity could remove
the feeling aroused by the attitude of
the United States government ! "The
problem of how the murder of those
prisoners is to be punished," said he
44l8 for the United "States to solve. It
would be mockery to try those men in
New Orleans. 1 have examined Kent,
and find that the venue can be changed
to any countv in the state. But the
tone of Mr. Blaine's response to Italy
was so warm, and, I may sav,' so undig
nified, and the letter of President Har
rison to the governor of Louisiana so
cold, that our government naturally in
sists upon all its rights.
THE SCHOONER SEIZED.
Capture of the Robert and Minnie Ef
Los Angeles, May 9. The schooner
Robert and Minnie was captured this
aiternoon about three miles from San
Pedro, by Deputy Marshal Anderson, on
board the tug Falcon. She made no re
sistance, and was towed into San Pedro
harbor and tied up to the wharf. The
arms said to have been on board her had
disappeared, and it is believed they
nave oeen transfer red to tne steamer
Ageut Burch and Pilot Dill came
ashore before the schooner was take .
Dill was arrested at San Pedro. Burch
came to Los Angeles and was traced to
the Arcade depot, where he was await
ing to take a train to San Francisco.
Burch first denied that he was the man
wanted, hut afterwards acknowledged
and was arrested by Detective Harry
Morse, and is now in the custody of the
United States marshal. Burch said he
landed the arms, but declined to say at
what point, but it is supposed to be at
Cataliiia or San Clemente island. Mar
shal Gard, United States District Cole
and Detective Harry Morse came up
from San Diego to Los Angeles this
DEMAND SUNDAY CLOSING,
The T. M. C. A. Convention Adopts a
- Resolution for the World's Fair
Kansas City, May 9. In the Y. M. C.
A. convention today the committee on
resolutions piesented resolutions on the
subject of the world's fair. The resolu
tions provide for an exhibit of the asso
ciation at the fair, and request its man
agers to keep the exposition .closed ou
Sunday "in deference to what-we believe
to believe to be the practically unani
mous sentiment of all the churches with
which we are united, and in accordance
with the example set by the Centennial
exposition of 1876." ' Colonel Dyer, of
Minneapolis, offered a motion that sec
retaries all over the country write to
probable exhibitors, asking them to
make the appearance of their exhibi
tions contingent upon the closing of the
fair on Sundays. This motion and the
resolutions were unanimously adopted.
Will Hunt for the Itata.
New ' York, May 10. The Herald'
Washington special says that the de
partment of justice has decided that the
United States has a legal right to recap
ture the Itata and she will be brought
back to San Diego if it takes the whole
Pacific squadron to find her. Instruc
tions have been sent to admiral McCann
and admiral Brown, and the Baltimore,
Pensacoia, and San Francisco will soon
be searching for the runaway. The
Omaha has been ordered to participate
in the hunt.
London, May 9. The Times, in an ed
itorial this morning on the Behring sea
correspondence, says :
Secretary Blaine's important conces
sions make it possible for the arbitration
award to be given lone before the Say
ward case is decided; therefore it is
scarcely necessary to discuss his last
argument. In the meantime the ques
tion of a close time for seals is most
pressing, and Blaine's delay causes
daily increased surprise.
Deserved His Fate.
Chicago, May 9. While in jail in the
suburban town of Austin, this evening,
Alfred Townsley, a gambler, was shot
and killed by bis wife, who has of late
been separated from him and residing in
Lafayette, Ind. The charge against
Townsley was that many times he re
peated criminal assaults upon his 18-year-old
step-daughter, whose father was
Townsley's brother. Mrs. Townsley was
arrested. There was no witness to the
Apache Indians Very Peaceful.
Caicago, . May 9. Major-General
Miles and family returned today from an
extended trip through Mexico and the
west. The general reports a great
change in the attitude of the Apaches in
New Mexico since the exportation of
their mischief-makers to Florida, and
has little fear of farther trouble with

Chicago, May 11. The Belding

thought not to exceed the liabilities.
Supreme Court Decides in Favor of
Washington, May 11. The United
States supreme court today decided a
case involving the constitutionality and
validity of the law of Pennsylvania tax
ing the Pullman Palace Car Co. on the
basis of a proportion to the number of
miles of railrpad within the state over
which the company's cars run compared
with the number of miles of railroad in
the United States over which the cars
run. The court holds the law constitu
tional and not in violation of the inter
state i'ominerce law. The court also de
cided, in the same (way the case from
Massachusetts, involving practically the
same question applied to the lines of the
Western Union Telegraph company in.
Soldiers Arrested at Walla Walla.
Wai.i.a Walla, May 11. Six soldiers
belonging to D troop have been arrested
for complicity in the recent lynching of
Hunt, 'the gambler. It is thought that
the soldiers were arrested on information
furnished by Corporal Arnold, who was
arrested a few days ago.
Dining; with Discrluiinatiaak -
If one desires to dine with physiolog
ical discrimination the meal should be
gin with a few uncooked oysters or clams,
which are immediately stimulating, nu
tritious and digestible; both oysters and
sea fish contain a tonic quantity of io
dine, and are good nerve foods. With
the exception of cayenne, the earlier
dishes should be mildly seasoned; the
entrees may become piquant gradually;
the ice or Roman punch refreshes the
tissues of the mouth and throat, which
have been heated by .the food and some
j what inflamed or, rather, stimulated;
j the liquid coolness counteracts those
feverish conditions, and prepares the pal
ate for the flavor of the roast or broiled
The accompanying salad greatly en
hances the intense flavor of the roast,
while the condiments and salad oil favor
digestion. The dessert sweets tend to
regulate the combination of the nutri
tive elements in the blood, exercising a
chemical action not yet thoroughly un
derstood. Black coffee or tea without
milk has an astringent effect, that is, it
contracts the mncoiu membmnA of th
'digestive organs, interfering with the
now of the gastric and intestinal fluids,
and thus retarding digestion. -.
When their effect is desirable, the
warmth and stimulus derived from
either of those beverages can be replaced
by drinking a glass of hot milk and wa
ter, swallowed as hot as possible, in
large sips, and there is no handicap, as
with tea or coffee. , The milk soothes the
sensitive digestive tract, which may be
disturbed by other foods, and the hot
water is sanative; the milk taken with
out the water would become a solid
food directly it encountered the gastric
juice, thus lacking the necessary liquid
quantity. Juliet Corson in Harper's
Its Origin In Doubt.
The other day I casually asked a drag
clerk the origin of the many colored
lights which are now the universal signs
of a drug store. The youth referred ma
very pleasantly to an older man in the
store, who finally admitted that he knew
; about as little as his younger associate.
I called in every drug store on uppei
Broadway mid made the same query. At
each place the question seemed to par
alyze the yountjer members of the estab
lishment. The older clerks contented
themselves with the opinion that it was
only to attract sittention that various
colored lights were represented by jets
behind liquid in a glass bottle. I ascer
tained that there was a great deal ot
knack in preparing the liquid so as to
give a clear tight of whatever color de-
J sired and to stand the test of tune with
I out precipitation.
One clerk said he thought that the
custom could be traced back two or three
hundred years until it faded into the
barber pole that is now the sign of the
tonsorial artists throughout the English
speaking; world. Another man, who
seemed to get "a little uearer to it than
the rest, said that it originated with the
early chemists and alchemists, who desig
nated their places of business in this way.
All of them expressed a desire that when
1 got the information sought 1 should
furnish it to those engaged in the drug
business. Interview in New York
