BURTON HOLMES DELIGHTS A LARGE AUDIENCE. Chicago's Second Stoddnrd Conduct* n Select Kx curs I on Party t>f Sterltogr People on a Delightful Tour Through the of Indolencet MnMc nncl Poverty. E. Burton Holmes literally transported a large audience f irom the bleat and frozen plain of Northern Illinois to the etinny and romantic land In Music Tuesday night, and. for two hours guided them through the historic and romantic land, showing his largo excursion party many beautiful and world renounded eights, which he explained in choiccyelegant words and in an exceptionally comprehensive manner. The views were uncommonly One, being colored in a manner which made the scenes represented appear almost as though they were transferred directly to. the eye from the various spots in old Granada. • .The first series of pictures dealt with the mighty Rock of Gibraltar, which has for ages been fortified by man and used as a stronghold in war. After n short trip about the great .fortress and viewing its imensity from many points, the party plunged. Into the sunny land of 4ndolence,4nuaio and -poverty;— Af? ter a short railway journey -through a broken country, where there are but few evidences of cultivation, the city of Honda, one of the oldest and strongest of the Moorish strongholds, was to be seen iu the distance -crowning the top Qf a rugged mountain, As the partjtjdrew nearer, they ( were given a view /(if the gorge of tne Guadalevin crossed by a massive . and beautiful arched stone bridge, the, main arch of which is more than 300 feet high and more than 2,000 years old, yet standing as tirmiy as oh the day when the .last clink of the mason's trowel set the stone which finished the structure. After a viewing the curious old town, its inhabitants and the long far vistas of mountains and valley .which the, elevation permitted, the j>arty found tbemselyea la4alr^6¥iiJe viewing * the -Qlralda-towee-of-the^great^athedraJ, The party was fdrtutate In arriving iu the city during the annual fair which takes place in 1 April and they took' in many of the curious eights furnished ed the cassiilaa of the aristocrat and ail but ate bunoleras (Spanish doughnuts) with the peasants and finally brought up In the Plaza do Toros (The place of the Balls) where they saw a bull killed in the most approved Spanish .manner with all of the horrors of gored horeee, narrow escapes and feats of daring of the capeadoros, picadores, bandeilleras and at last saw the espada ,thrust the :long thin sword.through the neck under the shoulder blade and into the sharp horn almost grazed his side as it passed beneath his murderous arm. All was there except the shouts and rapid actibni ,-••••• After a few pictures of Cuba and the harbor at Havana the party stood be^ fore the tombs of Ferdinand and Isabella and viewed the wonderful iron scre^ of the wonders of the jirt of ironworking. They t tben descended in- to.the crypt and viewed the sarcobhagi which have held the bodies of this noted pair undisturbed for nearly four hundred years. . , The last place visited was that which has been the subject for the poet, the painter and writer for many" years, the Alhambra, The famous "Court of the Lions," the wealth of marvelous decoration, the wopderous lightness . and grace of proportion which has "surrounded the vandal hand- of the con- querer, and today stands a living testimony to the subtile art of the Moorish architect; a .race now swept away, scattered and extinct, which 'f or almost a thousand years had- grown and developed in the sunny south of Spain.

Mrs. Wilkins, who came tp her husband's assistance was also attacked and seriously cut about the head and face, S. J. Wilklns moved to Como a year ago from Nelson and has practiced veterinary surgery.

'' Mrs. Wilkins tells the folio wing story of the affair: Stutzke came to the Wilkins home Wednesday' evening at 8 o'clock and was closeted with Wilkins in the front room of the house for sometime. Mrs. Wilkiiis h«J etarted to go up stai,rs when she beard the two men scuffling. She at once rushed into the room.. When she entered the room she saw her husband lying on the floor, the blood rushing from a gaping wound across his- throat. The stove had been overturned and the furniture tossed about, giving evidence of a desperate ecuffle. As Mrs. Wilkins :en"•••— J "—•-—i,,St;u,tzke " i -'j'-~-"-"--- form o a nd ward to push him away, Stutzke : attacked her with the knife, inflicting six .serious woflnds. ; :. Mrs. Wilklns was cut on the fore- ISeadrtwIce on the head above the right ear, three times over the' left ear and temple, and in an attempt to reach her throat, a deep gash was cut across her chin; About this time Mrs. Stutzke, who evidently had heard the noise occasioned by the disturbance, .her home being just across the street, entered the Wilkins house, and with the assistance of Mrs, Wilklns, forced Stutzke into another room. Here the enraged man picked up a lantern and struck Mrs. .Wiikina.- _______ : ____ - _____ - - - — — — . "; A Vicious 'Blow. ,- . • Mr. and Mrs. Stutzke then went home.
