MAN KILLED MAY NOT HAVE BEEN BANDIT

Muskogee, Okla., Jan. 22--- No race troubles are threatened here as the result of the killing of W.S. Williams, an alleged bandit by Conductor Linn, Thursday night, but there is serious doubt that the man killed was anything but an ordinary citizen.
No gun was found on the dead man, so far as it has been learned, and it is thought by many that the man was murdered by the conductor and the bandit story put out to camouflage the crime.

AN EXTRAORDINARY SUICIDE

London--- The body of a young man named Saunders was picked up in the Thames river last week. In the pockets of his coat was found some money, a number of papers, and the following letter:

" Should my body be found, which I devoutly hope it may not, I think it as well to give some explanation of what will be called a rash act.
Having written to the editor of the Family Herald, and received such an answer as to lead me to suppose myself mad, I have made up my mind to kill myself. I might, for aught I know, go raving at any moment, and do someone else a mischief.
The only thing that has restrained me from suicide has been the fear of causing sorrow to my parents, but that may be soon over, whereas if I were to live a lunatic, they would be always in trouble about me, and by doing this, killing myself, I end their trouble and my own. I have not written this with the hope of getting my body buried in consecrated ground, that being an affair of little moment to me, but simply in order that the cause of my death should be known."

BLOODY WORK

Stockholm, May. 17--- The Swedish steamer Prince Charles put in here today, bearing indications of an extraordinary tragedy.
The decks and cabins of the vessel were blood smeared and spattered everywhere. It seems that early last evening an unknown madman, with a revolver, ran amuck on the steamer and shot dead five persons almost before they realized his intentions.
The captain sprang upon the man, but the latter shot and killed him. The lunatic then reloaded his revolver and going on deck, wounded six of the crew. Others of the ship's company were by this time completely cowed and no further attempt was made to capture the man who launched a lifeboat and escaped.

Not to be outdone, Athens comes to the fore with a " Jack the Peeper."
