As he leaned forwanf 'over the pile of baskets to get a clear view of the entire surioiindings, bo was horrified to see the form of a woman lying prostrate upon the pavement. Ulood was flowing from a wound in h{^r head. Mr. Marr stopi)ed his car within ten feet oj the body, leai)od from his seat and ran to the spot w 'herP the form was lying. Realizing at a glance that the woman's injury was se|'lous, Mr. Marr summoned aid and removed her to the home of Mr. Reed in front of whose residence the accident occurred. A physician was hurriedly cay- ed. Awaking his arrival, an effort to Identify the victim of the accident was siicces.-'fuL In the woman's pock eibook was a card with the address "."lis Kast Monroe street." It was found that ibis was the home of Mrs. Uarber. The iihyslclan summoned arriving in a few moments at once pronounced MIS. Barber as beyond all earthly aid and though hypodermic Injections were resorted to. she did not respond to treatment. She died within ten minutes after beln?,' struck by the car. "1 did not reall.'.e that I had run against any one until I saw Mrs. Bar- JAr's body on' the pavement." said .Mr. f W-^xx. "1 felt a sort of dull thud as I crossed .Moniue street. 1 thought that a telephone or li(;ht wire hail fallen from the pole on ilie corner and was scraping against the jille of baskets. 1/eaning forward to look over, however 1 saw tliat a woman had been jmshed ove'r and 1 stopped the car immediately and ran to her aid. Tlio car did not run over her and I stopped within ten feet of the i)oini where the body lay. 1 did not see Mrs. Barber crossing the .-ireel and I believe she had passed almost out of the i>ath of the car. only the basket striking her and causing her to fall." An examination by the physician showed that .Mrs. Barber's skull was fractured at the base when her head struck the brick jiavement. The body was taken to the Sleeper morgue where it is being held pending funeral arrangements.

What constitutes superiority In crow-ing, no one has been found who can explain, whether the prize should bo given to the owner of the cock which can crow longest and loudest or the most musically. In picking the winner this obscure point wili be cleared up by the judges. The pr«!)osii:on was also made to have a cock fight, and this met with con.'siderable favor, until it .vas discovered that it was a violation of the law. Arrangements were by wire yesforday niornine with C. H. Acreman, of Kansas City, Mo., who acted as poultry judge at the fair here last fall, to "net as Judge at the poultry show.

Those reports have not been made to the police, per- haiis because the victirns have realized that the robberies were due to their own negligence in leaving easy access to their cellars, but that there have been such thefts is undeniable. In \iew of the fact that the cellar thieves are working it would be «• good idea to put a lock on your cellar door. A bunch of wrestlers who are mnU- Ing lola ibi'lr headqiiarterH, " VOUIH;" I.iitz.

I went to William Moore's house In Kansas City, Kansas and slept two hours Tuesday night, the only real sleep I've had since I left the jury hotel. Wednesday I came to Kansas City, Mo I was afraid of being arrfested. but nobody seeme<l to know me and I was glad I had shaved off my mustache. 1 was thinking of Christmas, and bow I might have to spend it away from my wife and children whether I was arrested or not. It made me think the world was a crazy place. I wondered if I was crazy myself. I get ii market basket and wandered around among the crowds around the City market. It was a relief to be among people after the stuffy court and jury room. Every bought came liack to juries and courts. I slept in a livery stable last night and this tiwrning wont to my lome. I had road in the papers that he ofTicers had quit watching it. "I saw one of my children In the barn yard and gave him a note to tiike to his mother, but be was afraid of me and ran.

"Ho said that fellow was pretty slick I'll bet he got away with his pockets full." Waldron said. To Judge I'brterfleld t )oIong8 much of the credit for Waldron's return. "I have always felt." said Porlor- flold, "that Mrs. Waldron wag anxious to nld «u. In any wtur iiosslble. I learned ypjirrt-day that Waldron had tieen ilKKansas City, Kas.. and t felt positive that he would swjn make an eirori to return lo his wife.
