THE LETTER CAME TOO LATE

Macon, Mo., Mar. 2--- An affecting deathbed reconciliation took place between William Graves and his wife this morning.
Last Thursday Mrs. Graves shot herself through the body because she supposed he had deserted her. Telegrams were at once sent to the husband, notifying him of the news. He arrived from Waterloo, Ill., this morning and his wife died at 5 o'clock.
It seems that he had written her, proposing a settlement of their differences, and the letter came a few hours after she fired the fatal shot into her breast. The husband is almost wild with grief.

TWO-YEAR-OLD TRAVELER

The youngest traveler that ever passed through Union Station arrived yesterday morning from Poplar Bluff and departed later for Rolla, Mo.
The youthful traveler was Marie Turner, and her age is 2 years. To her clothing was attached a tag with these words: "From J. Turner to George Turner, Rolla, Mo."
The child was provided with toys and apparently was as happy among the strangers as she could have been at home.
On arriving at the station she was turned over to matron Hunter, who gave her breakfast and "goodies," after which she was placed on a Frisco train for her destination.

BURNED TO DEATH FOR A WITCH

Waterford, Ireland, Mar. 26--- A most extraordinary case of murder arising from superstition was inquired into today by the special court of Clonmel, 25 miles from here.

Ten persons were arraigned before the court charged with murdering a woman named Cleary, because they supposed her to be a witch. The prisoners included the woman's husband and father. The evidence showed that Mrs. Cleary was suffering from nervousness and bronchitis and her husband believing her to be bewitched, and in order to exorcise the evil spell, obtained a concoction from a herbalist of the neighborhood.

Then, while the other prisoners held the unfortunate woman in bed, her husband forced the obnoxious concoction of herbs down her throat. After this, the suffering woman was held over a fire and dreadfully burned until she declared in the name of God that she was not Cleary's wife.

This torture was repeated on the following day, but the woman refused to conform to her husband's requests, whereupon he knocked her down, stripped off her clothing, poured parafine over her body, then lighted it and the woman burned to death in the presence of 6 male and 2 female relatives.

Cleary declared he was not burning his wife, but a witch, and she would disappear up the chimney. When the woman was dead her husband buried her charred remains beneath the mud in a dyke where they were found a week later. The prisoners, who were remanded, narrowly escaped lynching by an angry mob in the court room.

FOUR SKELETONS FOUND

Wichita, Kan., June 20--- R.J. Cooper, foreman of a Santa Fe fence gang, while out on the Cimarron river near the Kansas line in Oklahoma yesterday, discovered 4 skeletons, supposed to be the bones of early explorers, in a sand pit near the river bar.
With the skeletons were the barrels and locks of 4 old-fashioned flintlock muskets and pieces of armor. One of the guns and a skull had been whipped bare of sand by the wind, and the sight of these led to the discovery of the others.
One of the skulls was 3 feet under the sand. Only the skulls and larger bones of the bodies were preserved.

HOT TAR FOR TWO WOMEN

Weston, W. Va., May 2--- This city was the scene last night of the most fiendish outrage that ever disgraced the history of West Virginia, and which will probably result in murder.

Some weeks ago two young women came here from Clarksburg and took up their abode in the outskirts. Their names are Ida Duncan and Bertha Merriman.
In a few days it became rumored that they were not of good character. Late last night a party of men got together, secured a bucket of tar and proceeded to the women's home to drive them out of the city.

They broke open the doors, heated the tar, stripped the women and applied the hot tar with brushes to their bare bodies. The women screamed for mercy as the scalding tar was applied, but the 20 masked brutes did not desist until their victims were covered from head to foot.

The tar blistered the skin almost every place it touched, and when charitable persons, attracted to the women's sorry plight, attempted to remove it, great patches of skin came with it.

Physicians are doing all in their power for the women, but there is little hope in saving Bertha Merriman's life. Miss Duncan may survive, but she is suffering awful agony from the burns and the shock.
There is no definite clue to the perpetrators of the outrage, and no arrests have been made.
