John XifholM. the Colored Barlter. Elndea Countable Mnrphy'M Virlleuee and is tout to Sight. Late yesterday afternoon a warrant was sworn out against John Nichols, the well-known colored barber, who for the past year or more has posed behind the second chair at Charley Jones'barber shop on Broadway, calling for his arrest on the charge of bastardy preferred by Mary Wilson, a dusky maiden of the West Side, daughter of Newton Wilson, a resident of Pratt street. The warrant was served by Constable Murphy, who, entering the barber shop, engaged Nichols in conversation in a tone so low as to be scarcely audible to those in the room, and the barber and Constable presently departed together in the direction of the jail, the former all too plainly under charge of the latter. Just as the officer and his charge reached the Pharos building the barber broke from the side of his captor and ran down Court street as fast as his legs would carry hiin. Murphy made after the barber but it was easily apparent that ke would be no good in a race -with such a sprinter as Nichols proved to be. The way that coon pounded gravel was a caution. The ; baffled constable followed, but it was seen that his breath could not possibly hold out against such odds as his opponent gave him, and when the barber turned south on Third street Murphy was rapidly falling beind and beginning nervously to reach for his revolver. Capt. Morrisey joined IT the chase, but soon recognized the utterly futile effort he was making to compete with such a sprinter and early in the contest retired from the lists. Murphy also soon gave out and Nichols had a walk away, the last reliable sight of him being while he was crossing the island bridge, evidently intent on reaching country. Nichols is a married man and came from Richmond to this city about a yearago leaving his wife at the form- erjplace. Yesterday a little pickanin- ney came to light on the West Side and a scramble was immediately made to seek out a papa for the stranger, leading TO Nichols arrest as above stated. He is probably ere this f«.r from the city. THE STAJDEY CASE. Further Particulars of the ISml Cast* of Poor Leo. Staley. Thalndianapolis Sentinel of yec,- terdojlcontained the following concerning the sad case of Leonora Staley, the details of which were given in the Journal yesterday morning: "The body of Leonora Staley, the Logansport girl whose sad history was detailed in yesterday's Sentinel, •will be placed in CHrton's vault at (Jreenlawn cemetery. Mrs. Bullet, the matron at the Home for the Friendless, received a dispatch from Henry Staley, the girl's father, reading, 'Unable to furnish any money.' Yesterday afternoon a well dressed stranger with a dark mustache, called at Girton's and made inquiries about the disposition of the body. He seemed to be much affected and was much disappointed when he could not view the remains. Was this her betrayer? He left without giving his name.'Local interest in the lamentable affair was aroused yesterday by the Journal's story of the poor girl's case and the baseness and inhumanity of the vile betrayer of the innocent girl were loudly coui- manted upon. Thos. Collier, the Pan Handle brakeman on whom the responsibility of the unfortunate girl's condition rests, lives at Rush- vine, although his headquarters are Indianapolis. He is a brother of the late Father Collier, who died at Indianapolis about a year ago. He started on his regular run from Indianapolis yesterday morning, as he was seen by a well-known brakeman running on this end. The father of the terribly wronged girl is poor and xinable to push the prosecution of the case as it appears on the face. If criminal practice was the cause of poor Leo. Stalev's death, the public demand to know it, end if so the guilty 'person should suffer the extreme penalty of the law. It is stated that the body of the girl will be disenterred and a post mortem examination held to discover if any traces of a c/ime exist. This step will be made by persons who have interested themselves in the sad case. If any mystery shrouds this lamentable affair a possible light should be thrown on it and if wrong and crime have been committed let the death of Leo Staley be vindicated. Difficult Census Taker — How many male members are there in this family? Kentucky Housewife— Wall, there was six this raorninY but.pap and the boys went out after breakfas' fer scrap with the Mugffirieses and I don't know how many there is now. Sue* for »5,OOO l>am«ceB, The Chicago Herald of recent data contains the following in regard to Charles N. Loucks, owner of the Westend addition in this city: "Charles N. Loueks brought suit for trespass in the circuit court against Adolph Adams and Andrew Slasser, claiming damages at $0,000. Loucks recently built a $10,000 house at Irving Park, and the defendants were sub-contractors. The contractors for the work failed, and would ha^e been liable to damage had not Mr. Loncks taken charge of the work himself. The defendants, it is alleged, did not do the work to the satisfaction of the architect, and Mr. Loueks held out §14S. On election day it is alleged, the defendants stood at the polls ;n the Twenty-seventh ward and told people that Loucks was a dead-beat. Some onft.it is also claimed, wrote the statement On the sidewalk. Mr. Loucks thinks he was slandered and wants damages to the eitent of $5,000." A FATAL ACCIDENT. K-l ward Clinger.aPan Handle Brakc- msn. Killed by the Cars at K*e Roy. Yesterday morning about 10 o'elock Edward Clinger, a brakeinan on east-bound freight No. 74, Pan Handle, was killed at LeRoy. His foot caught in a guard rail and he wai thrown to the grouud and his body mangled in a horrible manner. The victim of this distressing accident is a young man, a resident at Royal Center a»d is a sou of George Clinger. He was a young man of excellent habits and his sudden taking off is greatly deplored by ail who knew him. _ The Spring Ilcdiirine. The popularity which Hood's Sarsaparilla has gained as a spring medicine is wonderful. It possesses just those elements of health-giving, blood-purifying and appetite-restor ing which everybody seems to need at this season. Do not continue in a dull tired, unsatisfactory condition when you may be so much benefltted by Hood's Sarsaparilla. It purifies the blood and makes the weak strong. _ 1 Tourists. Whether on pleasurejbent or business, should take on everj trip a bottle of Syrup of Figs, as it acts most pleasantly and effectually on the kidneys, liver and towels, preventing fevers, headaches and other forms of sickness.

Paul's Wonderful Preservation. Mme. Patti is a marvel of preserva. tion. No prima donna has ever maintained the favor of the public so long. This preservation has, however, been earned at great and continuous self- sacrifice. . The strict regimen ol living which she has observed since her childhood would have discouraged ninety-nine women out oi one hundred, but the result is that she remains, not simply the greatest, bul the only one of her contemporaries. She carries away with herabout$250,- 000 as the earnings of her last season in America, and is still good foi another million. Dead letters. There were more than 0,000.000 letters received at the dead-letter office last year. Five hundred thousand were never called for at the postoffices to which they were addressed, 150,000 -were sent in DV hotel-keepers because their departing guests failed to leave their new addresses, 120,000 were insufficiently prepaid for mileage, 400,000 were erroneously or illegibly addressed, while 17,000 bore no superscriptions whatever. Eighteen thousand contained money amounting to §35.000 in all, and 22,000 contained dralts, checks, etc., amounting to $1,600,000. Antiqaltjr of the High Hat. The age of the hat- is under investigation. A correspondent writing- tc the Mainzev Journal says: "Amona the marginal illustrations, by Albroc&t Durer, of the famous prayer book oi 'Emperor Maximil&tf, there is a raun ^'wearing- a high hat, and in a book ul crests and escutcheons of Jost Ammann, published in 1850, a high linl lorms the crest of a nobleman, llau these hats not been worn attheperiod. great artists like Durer and Ammann would certainly not have painted sr.ch miserably ugly things, which are the most unsightly pieces of furniture trie world has ever seen."
