William Henry Theodore Durrant was finally charged yesterday morning with the crime of murdering Blanche Lamont in Emmanuel Baptist Church on April 3 The complaint was sworn out by Detec tive John Seymour in Judge Conlan's yesterday morning. He ana De ■ Anthony have had charge of the investigation into the murder of Miss lamont. Seymour took the warrant to the City Priscui, and Durrant was sum moned from his cell. When informed of the charge to be en tered against him he remarked in a surly tone, "How many more things are you go ing to charge me with?" Seymour took no notice of the question. While Seymour was reading the warrant Durrant sullenly kept his eyes fixed upon the floor. His answers to the usual questions as to his name, age, occupation and place of birth were given reluctantly. When he was put ba...

8 IDYLS OF THE FIELDS BY "A NATURALIST AT LARGE. The bagpipers of Cress Creek gave a con cert last night. The electric lights of the city down on the level were reflected upon the sky and sent a pale rellex illumination down upon the bagpipers' concert hall. The evening star lamped it radiantly, and the occa sional hoarse blasts of the steam whistles on the bay ferries sounded up the heights like a faint bassoon interjection through the bagpipes' higher tones. Sometimes, too, in the pauses of the chorus, I caught the exquisite notes of a thrush from the willows, trilling his evening song to his mate. There was conversation on the bal cony, where the professor discussed the true basis of wealth, but upon all his wise observations the bagpipers kept up a con tinuous vocal comment, for all the world like a Greek chorus. Who knows, indeed, but that this was the original Greek chorus? Did not Aristophanes himself find these bagpipers most useful and inter esting dramatis personoe ? Our b...

Recollections of Lincoln The Lawyer,Politician, and Statesman as Joseph Medill knew him. 111. i After Mr. Lincoln became President his i relations with Mr. Medill continued to be of the most friendly character. The two j men met occasionally in the White House and they maintained a steady correspon dence, yet very seldom did either write to the other a letter. The manner of this seeming paradox is interesting. In the I midst of the titanic turmoils of the war j Lincoln had little time and less inclina- I tion to write personal letters. Yet no pub- j lie man, not even the first Napoleon him self, had a stronger appetite for intelli gence or more various methods of acquiring it. In last October's number of McClure's Magazine Mr. Mitchell described how ad mirably Mr. Dana served the President as his "eyes at the front" and with what keenness of relish the humorist of the White House absorbed the pungent dis patches of the humorist of the War De partment. Mr. Lincoln had other means of ...

18 FORT FRAYNE CHAPTER VII. That night Ellis Farrar was as wakeful as the sentries on their snowbound posts. It was after midnight when she returned from progressive whist at the doctor's, and j though luck had befriended her and kept j Ormsby from her side, she had been able at times to watch him when chance brought him near Helen Daunton. She noted with jealous misery the appealing look in Helen's eyes when once they were for an instant left to themselves. She could have sworn she saw a little scrap of paper handed Ormsbj' at that moment and quickly stowed in his waistcoat pocket. But the rest of the evening it was Leale who devoted him self to Helen, and Leale who escorted her home, aud this fact Ellis saw was some thing that seen,cd to give Ormsby no con cern whatever. Had she not been blinded by her suspicions, she would have seen that poor Jack had only one real source of trouble that night, and that was her own determined avoidance of him. Wheels within wheels were whirring i...

22 THE Theatres At the close of her present season Pauline Hall will make an extensive bicycle tour of Europe. Jessie Bartlctt Davis will spend the summer on her chicken farm near Chicago. Many of the newspapers of New York speak slightingly of Henderson's big production of "Aladdin Jr.," which has just reached the metropolis. Fanny Davenport met .^anlou at Marly, near Paris, last summer. "I beg your pardon, how do you write your plays?" asked the actrc?s. "I do not write them,'' answered the dramatist. "I build them." Olga Nethersole will be henceforth under the management of the Frohmans. Daniel and Charles Frohman have signed a contract with the English actress for a long term of years, and she will return to America in October to begin her first starring tour under the new management. Just thirty-four years ago Professor Herr mann, the world-renowned conjurer, made his American debut at the Academy of Music in New York.

In Childhoods Realm Long Ago. Of all the beautiful p'.ctures That hang on Memory's wall, Is one of a dim old forest, That seemeth best of all ; Not for Its gnarled oaks olden, Dark with the mistletoe : Not for the violets golden That sprinkle the vale below; Not for the milk-white lilies That lean from the fragrant hedge, Coquetting all day with the sunbeams, And stealing their golden edge; Kot for the vines on the upland. Where the bright red berries rest; Not for the pinks, nor the pale sweet cowslip, It seemeth to me the best. I once had a little brother With eyes that were dark and deep, In the lap of that olden forest He lieth in peace asleep; Light as the dawn of the thistle, Free us the winds that blow. We roamed there the beautiful summers, The summers of long ago: But his feet on the hills grew weary, And one of the autumn eves I made for my little brother A bed of the yellow leaves. Sweetly his rale arms folded My neck in a meek embrace. As the light of immortal beauty Sil...

24 IN ANTELOPE VALLEY Among the Yuccas, Fruit Col onies and Artesian Wells. CONaiTERING RUSSIAN THISTLES An Immense and Longr-Neglected Region Beyond the Tehachlpl Attracting Capital. One of the least known portions of Cali fornia may be found in that extensive mountain territory along the borders of Kern and Los Angeles counties which is known on the map as Antelope Valley. Although the Southern Pacific crosses it, all that the traveler sees is a level stretch dotted with sagebrush and giant yuccas. Nevertheless, the 1100 square miles in cluded in this upland valley, 2(300 feet above the sea, includes a great deal of valuable soil and has many potential re sources. Leaving Los Angeles on the night train four hours' northward travel brings one to the new station of Palmd&le, the supply point for groups of colonies on the south ern sirte of the valley both east and west of the railroad. Palmdale is a straggling pioneer village, with a store, hotel, school house and a few dwelling...
