I'll tell you how I came to dls co\er hi* genius." said the man who had spoken first. “When I tell y<*j what he did I think you'll tgree with me He se cured a typewriter without paying a cent for It. and without doing a stroke of work for It. and he did It In a perfectly honest and legitimate way. too. In fact, he act ually made money on the transaction. I only discovered how he did It by accident, and I’ve been wmmlering at the genuls and simplicity of the scheme ever since. He was formerly employed In the same offl.'e with me. and We both had to do . good deal of writing One day he rum* up 40 me and proposed that we should hire a typewriter together. •• *\Ve can bite a typewriter for $t a month.’ he said, ’and If we split It lie. tween u* It will only coet us 50 cent* a week each. We can do 4nat all right, be cause we wouldn’t be using It at the same time, anyway. If you give me $2 tow I'll go up to the office of one of the typewriter companies and have them send down a typewriter. I’ll arrange the whole thing so a- to save you any trouble.* "1 agreed to this, and the young man went off with the 12. Fvery month I paid him t 2. and we Iwth used the typewnrltet with perfect satisfaction. About a week • fter the first payment I learned that my friend was not peylns anything for th typewriter, but was actually making a little on tt. lie was hiring It out to a man who only used It occasionally, and whom he persuaded to pav him SO cent* . week for the use of It. 1 thought that this was rather clever, but I didn’t re . a Use the full measure of my friend’s ability until a year had expired Then I Warned from a man who had called to ollect a narment on It that he had ♦greed to buy the typewriter on the ln - oilmen? plan, paying 4 a month for It. Tha man was calling for the last month ly payment cn It at the time, and the vpewrlter la new the property of my friend It took him a year to pay It oft u 12 s month, and he was receiving 50 I <enta a week for It all the time. I never j ♦ -rk the trouble to figure It out. but I can see that he mint have been making little on It while be was paying for it." THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY.

Furthermore they were so full of morphine nil the lime they were talking that It was hard to tell whether or not they themselves understood what thay were saying. Maggie O’Neil said that ehe and Itakcr were pi her room when Alt>erta appeared In the doorway. Hhe said that *h* had been taunted by the.other women In the house and neighborhood. Alberta especial ly. with the alleged fact that three *r four of the men who have etijoyed the doubtful compliment of her close ac quaintance are either dead or in the penl tentUrv They had otherwise abused her she said According to her account of the diffi culty. Alberts begsn it by striking hr in the face. She did not re#ent this blow and H iker struck her because she didn’t. All of this time Alberta was standing In the room and at this Juncture let fly wbh the heavy goblet of pressed glass she had been carrying in her hand. Hhe Intended to hit Maggie, hut the missile flew wb’* of It- mark and struck Raker on tiie right temple. In 1 *♦- iund he had Alberta by the throat, and kl -ked her unmercifully until he hlm-cif fainted from the loss of blood There wns a gash three Inches long alove his right temple and the tem|N>rul artery was severed There was also 11 slight fracture of the skull. The O’Neil woman dragged Baker out of the house and carried him to Duke's Pharmacy, where *•*♦* attempt was ma le to dress and iMinduge the gaping wound. Then ha* was carried In a cab to the office of Tr. Ueorge M Norton Hr. Norton was with a patient at tha time he was summoned and it wv> pos sibly half mu hour before he could be reached and could get to his office In Ilie meantime Raker was a pitiful. If re pulsive. object. As long as he would keep stiii. tne bandage a'nout his ns*d serve! to check. In part. the flow of blood. but he could not lie quiet for two minutes at a time. The morphine he had taken had com pletely shattered his nerve*, and. In an exaggerated degree. he was In the condition of a man who has reached the eftmax of a long debauch He was "see ing ihlngs." and every little while he would make a wild lunge to get at one of these ap|Mrit|on*. Then the flow of blood would recommence. In the meantime the woman, who had come 10 the office with him was In seml hysterh** She needed another Injection of morphine ami she had to leave him while she went to t drugstore and laid In a supply of the drug When l>r. Norton arrived he *{ltched tip the gash and placed tight compresses about Hitker's head. In this manner the flow of blood was stopped and the man o fixed up that he could be helped Into the cab. He drove away with the wo man Hr. Norton thinks he will get over It all right, but to the lay mind It seemed that he ha I lost enough blood to cause the death ox. !l colored him red from head to wo Ist and it was spattered all about the room. The matter was not reported to the po lice and no arresis have been made. Raker said he did not want to have the woman arrested, probably because he did not want to put the authorities on notice that he Is still In the city. —An o'.d legal paper ha* been unearthed In the prothonotary's office In Wllkee hsrre.
