M, Trlpp, the spiritualistic medium, who was to appear In Sterling last night, was unable to be here on account of troubles in Chicago. The Chicago Evening Dispatch contains the following concerning the matter: "A blonde wig, said to have been taken from the head of Mrs. J. M. Tripp,"of 3007 .Indiana avenue; and which is now In the. possession of F. Arnold, of West Adams pointed to jubilantly by three conspirators •who broke up a "seance" pn West Mad- ison^treet the other night as convincing evidence that there is no such thing as "speerits." "Mrs. Tripp is a "medium" and with her husband, gives materialization "seances," in which the counterfeit presentments of departed friends and relatives appear to view, besides prov- Jng-their-presence-by Blate^writinga and- JavaterioUB-knockingSr^-The:abUity-tir effect a materialization of the supposedly ethereal bodies has made Mrs. Tripp and her husband "high cards" in a wide circle and their matinees have been largely attended and pronounced wonderful. "A deep-laid plot which was sprung .Thursday night, however, has resulted in'some questioning as to the genuineness of Mr. and Mrs. Trlpp's most effective act. ./ ';' "The.plot was figured out by-Mr. Arnold, hls ; slster, Mrs. Dudenhaver, who 'lives' on r >'West Madison street, near Loomis, attorney named Williams. : '-."~ ••;':- •'."', ," 'We invited Mr/and Mrs. Tripp to ; the Dudenhaver home to give a seance' said Mr. Arnold, 'and they were told to Bring all their scenic accessories and ' '.e their,best show.

All they saw .gr heard was the hair that the woman claims to have gotten off Mrs. Trlpp. 'We have since learned that the parties were a very low set. There was one man present who admits he saw nothing out of the way on our part; You will likely see bur side in the papers, Assure all friends It Is a fake gotten up by people not spiritualists. No^ one of our friends give credence to the story. Mrs, Tripp will be at your place In the latter part of the week.

S. Street, of this city. The father, the boy and his younger brother were walking on the track enjoying the pleasant morning. As they approached a culvert, just west of the town, they saw the train coming in their direction. The father-took the younger son in hia arms and stepped from the track, supposing that WHlie would be able to take care of himself. It seems, however, that the boy was dazed or paralyzed with fear, for before the horrified father knew what the situation was, the train struck and kille_d: -thelittle fellow; IN JUDGE WARD'S COURT.

' '-Our lease runs for a considerable time yet, and until it expii es the mill will be operated as it has been since we leased it from the receiver." The speaker then explained that the cause of the shortage in receipts waa occasioned by the inability of the receiver to place all the thirty- five mills, which composed the trust, in operation, and the necessity ot keeping up repairs and iagurance with money received from tnosr'th&t beeiu leaded.
