"1 only re-echoed your words. What do yon mean by saying such a thing?" For answer I rose from my seat and made for the door. The force wearied me. "Where are you going, Denham?" he asked, following me up. "For the police," 1 answered, facing him. "Yes, I am determined to find out the mystery of Francis Briarfleld's death. You, his brother, decline to help me, so I shall place the matter in the faanrl^of the authorities," '''upon my soul, Denham," said Felix, detaining me, "you are either mad or drunk. I declare most solemnly that I am Francis Briarflold. From this story , of yours I should think it was my brother Felix who is dead, did I not know he is in Paris?" "A flue story, but it does not impose on me," I ati£*.vered scofflugly. "Listen to me, Briarfiolcl. Your brother Francis vent out to South America some sis months ago. Before he went he was engaged to Miss Bellin. The mother •would not hear of the marriage, so the engagement was kept quiet. Yon alone knew of it and took advantage of snob •f knowledge to suppress the letters sent to Miss Bellin through yon by Francis and represent yourself to Olivia as her lover returned three months before his time. Yon, I quite believe, are supposed to be in Paris, so that you may the more easily carry out the game." "This is mere raving." "It is the truth, and yon know it As Miss Bellin did not answer his letters, Francis thought something was wrong and returned home. Afraid leal he should find rat your plot, yon asked . him to meet yon at the Fen inn, anc , there either intended to throw yoarsell on his mercy or—to murder him." "Murder himl" he repeated fiercely. "It is false I" "That will be for the police to deter- mina" "But surely, Denham, you don't in tend to inform the police?" "I am going to do so now." • Felix seized me by the arm and dragged me l»»ck to ray seat. He was now much agitated, but made every effort to restrain his emotion. '' Sit down,'' he said in a hoarse tone. "Yon dw me wrong, Denhain—on my soul you do me wrong. _ I was engaged, I am engaged, to Olivia Bellin. Her mother consented to out engagement after I returned to England three months "•go. Felix, I believe, is in Paris.

An Attempt Hurt Been Mail* to Burn Bodloi—The Victims Were a Boy o and Ml« Little St,t«r ot 81*—The Hnbk>« Hud W»ndered From Home nnd VYcro MlMinii All Nlfht. PAULDINO, O., Nov. ».—A moat np- palliug murder was discovered hero Monday morning. Two children ot Samuel Gciorl, livtag three miles north of town, were found in a brush pi!« murdered and an attempt had baeniriudi; to burn the bodies. The girl, ngod 6. wag decapitated nnd dieembowled ami the boy's throat was cut from ear to ear and his head nearly severed from his body. The boy is 9 years old. The children loft home at 10 a. m. Sunday. . At 8 p. m. a searching party was organized and searched all night and at 8 o'clock Monday morning tho bodies were found. They presented a most horrible spectacle. The news of the horrible affair spread lapidly and soon hundreds of people were on the seene. Sheriff Stnley was among the number and arrested Charley Hart* a neighbor's boy, who was at once suspected and the people of the neighborhood are firm in their conviction of his guilt. Young Hart says he cannot read or write and does not know his age and is very nervous. When accused of tho crime he denied it in a nervous way. The bodies were found within three rods of young Hart's home and about half a mile from the children's home. The little boy's boots were found in the grass a short distance from the bodies. Their little hands were tied tof ether with a piece of tarred rope attached to a billet Of wood resembling a Mdgh hewn pump handle. It is thought this will famish a definite clue if the boy is guilty. One of the grounds o£ suspicion is that when the dead bodies were found the boy discharged his gun and ran to his home in an excited manner. He was one of the searching party and was not far distant wl)en the children were found, In addition to the arrest of Hart, Levi, Cain and Clarence Brindle have been placed in jail. There tl no Arect ev!- denee that they wen eonneetsA «kth the crime, but they were found in Hart's house when the latter was taken into custody. The Hart residence, it Was found, had been freshly swabbed. When it. was searched two corn cutters and an axe were found to be missing. There is no doubt the murderer or murderers used such an instrument or an axe in the commission of their awful crimes. The people of Paulding and the country in the vicinity ol the scene of the murder •M in a frenzy ove» the affato *»4 While there is no probability of immediate violence it will go hard for those responsible for the death of the unfortunate little ones as soon as their guilt is in any way certain. The mother of Uie children is very ill and is kept in ignorance of their fate. The father has not been permitted to see the bodies of their children. As soon as Hart was taken to the PHuldingjall a mob of 800 to 500 men organized to hang the priaowy at MMS, but were dissuaded on pleas that the chances were largely in favor of the boy's innocence and that the guilty party was still at large. It was evident thisjargnment would hold tho crowd off only until night came on and tho sheriff watched his opportunity to spirit the prisoner away to the jail at Vanwert, a distance of 80 miles.

T., NOV. «.— Si Ion Lewis, the condemned Ohoctaw murderer, wns shot at Wilburton at 10 o'clock Monday morning' by Sheriff Pnrsley. Tho bullet from the sheriff's Winchester missed the condemned man's heart, passing through his body an inch above the nipple, and he had to be strangled to end his sufferings. Sheriff Pursley anticipatad trouble, having just before the execution received a letter from JJewis' friends' threatening vengeance aud he had over 100 heavily armed deputies at the scene. Arriving at the place of execution, Lewis offered up a prayer, following it with a short talk. He then pulled off his coat, vest and boots and'the sheriff painted a cross just beneath his left nipple. Lewis then sat down and was blindfolded. While two men held his hands the sheriff retraced his steps five feet and fired. The bullet went clean through the murderer's body, but missed its mark, and Lewis, throwing back his head, sank groaning to the ground, the blood spurting from the wound. To end the horrible work the sheriff was finally compelled to take hold of the man's nose and smother him to death. He lived 30 minutes after being shot.
