LICENSED TO MURDER. ! ONE VIEW OF THE DOOR KEY. 9 Primitive Justice In the Early Days In the Australian Buah. Near by one Australian town, long ago, a savage tribe had mur- dered a family of settlers in the night save one lad, who escaped death by opportunely tumbling to the floor between the bed and the wall, himself wounded, unconscious and left for dead. What the provo- cation was nobody knows. It is probable that there waa no specific provocation. It had doubtless been undertaken upon savage impulse and accomplished for nothing more than the momentary pleasure of dealing death to some living crea- ture. This was the inspiration of many similar deeds—neither vengp- ance nor spoil, but the swift bes- tial, wanton blood lust, indulged, celebrated, laughed over for the time and forgotten. And therein lies a sufficient explanation of the terrible character of the retaliation. Whatever the case, the boy, having thus narrowly survived, made his way tp Brisbane, where he related his sto...

SCORES ARE KILLED OVER INDIAN GIRL. Negro Who Won Wife at Dice Game Starts Trouble When He Avenges Her Harder. New Orleans, La., May 20.—The United Frjiit Company today was using its wireless in an effort to confirm a strange story of a race riot reported by mail to have oc- curred on one of its plantations in Guatamala, in which, it is reported, sixty-four negroes were killed. Smoldering race hatred of the native Indians for negroes, inflamed by one of the negroes, ar« American, winning the Indian girl, Nazada, from her father, at dice, and his re- fusal to sell her back to a native, is reported to be the cause of the trouble. The negro, Clarence Williams, had been working on the Tehuana farm, one of a long string of plantations the United Fruit Company operates in the Montagu a River district. He had incurred the hatred of many of the Indians because of his prowess with dice. In a gaiile recently in which was Nazada's father, he won all the peon's money, and then in true Guatemala...

A story that illustrates one of the extraordinary points of view with which American officials in the Philippines have to deal is told by former Commissioner Dean C. Wor- cester in the. National Geographic Magazine. A wild Tinguian named Abaya had a comisionado or agent who sold his products for him at the provincial capital of North llocos. The comisionado in turn had a Ne- grito slave, whom he suspected of designing to escape. When Abaya came in with a black load of tobac- co, the comisionado told him to take his head ax and kill the slave, who was cutting firewood in the neighboring grove. The comision- ado further told Abaya that he him- self would kill a big hog and give turn half of it in payment for the service. Abaya cheerfully sought out the unsuspecting Negrito, whom he att...

LUCKY INTERVIEWS. They Lured a Newspaper Man Away From Certain Death. On two occasions, when in Chi- cago, I was saved from death by in- terviews. Oil one of these occasions I had been assigned to do a Sunday story describing a midnight ride oil an engine rushing out of Chicago. The Illinois Central railroad provid- ed the engine. I was to start at midnight and take an arti^along with me to make the pictures! On the night I was to do this job the secretary of the treasury, Charles Foster of Ohio, arrived at the Grand Pacific hotel, as I was informed by one of the hotel clerks. This was at II o'clock, and I figured that to save my hotel column from being scoop- ed I had better run down to the Grand Pacific and have a bit óf chat with Secretary Foster. I did so: Foster had some inter- esting things to say. When it was timé for me to hustle for the en- gine I was listening to him and for- getting the ride on the engine. The night city editor, concluding! that I had been lost somewhere ...

Association Plans Cleanup Day. The attendance upon the meet- ings of the Cemetery Association indicates an ever increasing interest. The last regular meeting was open- ed by repeating the Lord's Prayer, the president leading. The pro- ceedings of the previous meeting were reviewed, and the work of organization was immediately re- sumed. The committee on membership submitted a list of forty names. This represents only a small pro- portion of those who are interested and who desire to be identified with the organization. In an open discussion some fine distinctions were drawn between woman's rights and man's privilege, and the reverse. The unanimous decision was that it is every woman's privilege to become a member of the Crockett Cemetery Association, but that it is also right that a greater number of men should be represented in the mem- bership. The ladies would be glad to surrender the work, once well established, to stronger hands and clearer heads and more courageous hearts. Mrs...
