CLICVKLAND. 0., AprTl 18.— Seymour Newlin, a negro with nbad reputation committed a criminal assault Saturday night upon an iig-ed woman named Mrs. Knowles, living at Rushsylvania, Lo gau county, 0. He was captured Sun day morning, but when the sheriff ar rived from Ucllefontalnetotiilce charge of the prisoner a mob which had col leeted refused to give him up. Th( sheriff summoned a posse, but the mob would not yield. A call was then inadi upon the militia, and a company lof Bello/outaine late in the afternoon for the scene of trouble. The crowd of infuriated citizens a Rushsylvania were apprised of the de parture of the military, and long b foro their arrival were armed at massed around the calabooue to receive them, and when the company arrived at the building 100 voices warned them the cltlrens were determined that blooc would flow before the prisoner would bo surrendered. The sheriff, who re mained on tho ground, was informed that only the life of the negro woul satisfy their vengeance. The mob swore that the entire state militia, could not take him away. The sheriff parleyed with tlie leaders, who declared that if the soldiers were ordered back to Kellefontaine they would try to protect the prisoner until morning and give him a hearing in Rushsylvania. They also told the sheriff that he muai promise that no attempt should be made to get the man away until after the preliminary examination. Tbreutencd to Uie Dynamite. Sheriff Sullivan, who was in com mand of the soldiers, was informed that there were six dynamite cartridges under the calaboose q^ad if any attempt was made to fire a mm or fix a bayonet the building and tbe prls* oner would be blown into eternity. After parleying for a time the sheriff decided that he could do nothing and the troops were ordered M return to Bellefoutaine on a promise from the citizens that they would care tor the prisoner and see that no harm came to him. The troops left at 8 o'clock. The dyoamita talk was supposed to be a blurt, but after the sol- liers left six bombs wore hauled from ieneath the calaboose. The Blob Get* to Work. As soon as the soldiers were out of sight preparation* were made to string up the prisoner. It was asserted that was an old-time malefactor and had seen in the Ohio penitentiary three ,imes. The advice of their loaders was disregarded by the (Treat mass of the cit- zens, who shouted: "Hang himl" Then rush WB« made for the place of confinement, which was a small wooden structure that was not able to resist ihe onslaught. The frightened yells of ,he negro could be heard above the oise of the lynchers. It was just 8:50 o'clock when a determined onslaught was made. HaoiEed to a Cottonwoud Tree. The building was overturned and the itruggling 1 negro quickly taken from t. A rope had been procured. A noose was put about the neck of the trembling wretch and ho was dragged to a cotvonwood tree about 100 yards distant Very little was said and no opportunity was given to the prisoner to make a confession or statement A dozen willing hands grasped the rope and the negro was swung into the air. As his body rose above the mob the air vas rent with tbe shouts of the men and women who had assembled to witness the lynching. As soon as the work was finished the mob dispersed md quiet was restored. ADMIRAL' IRVYIN RETIRES. ilnffalnr Similarity Betwmn HU Experience ami Th»t of Bcnhnm. WASHISSTOX, April 16.— Boar Admiral John Irwin wa» placed on the re- Ired list Sujiday by the operation of aw on reaching the age of 02 years. le hauled down his flag on the Phila- elphla at Honolulu as Admiral Ben» iam did on the flan Francinco at Oura- oa five days ago. It is an odd coincidence that both htse admirals, after forty-seven years' ervlco in the nary, both having been ippointed In 1847, should retire aboard hip in foreign waters without turning heir commands over to ranking sue- essors, and should both be brought tome as passengers on merchant TCS- ela. Admiral Kirkland, who succeeds Admiral Benham, Is now in England on ils way to join the South Atlantic quadron at Montevideo, and Admiral Valker, who will command the Pacific tation, cannot reach Honolulu for sev- ral days yet, having left San Fran- igco for Honolulu April 7. Commodore Skerrott, commanding the Asiatic squadron, becomes a rear admiral, succeeding Admiral Irwin in ;bat rank. Commodore Joseph Fyfle, now commandant of the Boston navy •aid, entered the navy on the same day fith Admiral Irwin, and is now at the iead of the list of commodores. Killed HU Vlctlot'i Brother.

Ho went in with the crowd when the bell rang, and, finding no empty seat, he perched himself on. the wood-box. When school finally opened, the teacher secured hia name and began asking- him questions, in order to find out how ho should bo graded. "Can you spell?" she asked. "What kind of spelling?" he cautiously replied. "Spoil 'house,' If you please." "Frame or brick house?" he asked. "Any kind of a house." "With a mortgage on it?" "You may spell 'man,' if you will," she said, giving a severe look, "Man?" "Yes." "I don't care much about spelling 'man' this morning, but I will this afternoon. I've spelled it with my eyes shut." "Do you know your alphabet?" sho asked, changing the subject. "Never had any!" was the prompt reply. "Do you know anything about reading?" "I read like lightning!" ho answered. She handed him a reader, and said: "Let me hear you read." "Read right out loud?" "Yes." "I'm afraid it would disturb the children!" he whispered. "Go on, and let mo h»ar you read." Ho looked carefully at the page, scowled his brow, and read: "If I was a lame boy and didn't get any peanuts in my stocking Christmas, but I'd mako things jump around the house next morning!" Ho handed back the book and the teacher asked: "Richard, how many are three and three?" "Three and three what?" he inquired. "Anything." "It's a (rood deal according to what It is," he replied, as he settled back. "1 know that three and throe cats don't make a dog!" "Did you ever study geography, Richard?" "Yes, mam." "What is geography?" "It's a book," "Is this world round or flat?" . "Hills and hollars," he replied. "Richard, can you write?" "Write what?" "Can you write your name?" "I could, I suppose; but I've got my name without writing it" 'Can you write a letter?" •Who to?" "To any one." "Yes, I could, if I had money to pay the postage." "Well, Richard," she s»id, in despair, 'you will have to go into the lower room, if you want to come to school here." "I drutheu stay here," "But you can't." "I'll bet you this knife ag'in ten cents I can." She took him by the arm to remove him, but he laid his hand on her shoulder and said in a warning voice: "Don't got me mad now, or I.'11 let jnyself loose." She called the principal down, and »s he approached the boy ho demanded: "Boy, what are you doing here?" "Gittingeducation," replied Richard. "You go right down stairs now!" continued the principal, 'Well, don'tsass me, for I never was Here before!" replied Richard, slowly moving his legs as if he meant to get down. The principal took him by the collar oijd jerked him around, got kicked on the shin, and bitten on the wrist, and finally landed the young student on the walk. '.'Now yon go. homo!" he shouted, as •be triad to recover his breath. "Am I educated?" inquired Biehard. "You »eom to bo," "Glnjmo a diplomy. then." "You clear out, or I'll have you arrested."

The principal walked in and shut the door, and, after the new boy had stood there long- enough to show that lie wasn't afraid, he turned and walked off, prowling to himself: "I'll git foreman ol No. 0 to pound that feller afore he's a week older." — Street and Smith's Good News.

"Well, I asked him about a game of poker ho s»,t in the night before, and he said, 'Yes, I was there and 1 won twenty-five dollars.' " "I should say that indicated he was very deep in it," exclaimed the horrified employer, "Quite the contrary," dissented the investigator. "If he had been at it very Jonjr he never would have said, 'I won twenty-five dollars,' but 'I win twenty-five dollars.'
