"AFAID OF HEK LIFE."
A Very Warm Hearing Last Even
ing Before Justice of the Pence
Lynch, nt Simpson.
"I said I would give her a good
trimming Monday morning nnd u
trimming sho'll gut," was the pugilis
tic! exclamation mado by robust lire,
William Yando to Justice of thn Peace
Dan Lynch, of Simpson, last night.
.Mrs. Yando wan before Mr. Lynch
on a charge preferred by Mrs. William
Mornn, who Is married to Mr. Yando's
brother, and who alleges that she lives
in fear and trembling because of sun
dry dire threats and unseemly names
she was subjected to by Mr. Yando,
nee Mary Moran. The trotibto seems
to be that Mrs. Moran, mother of Mrs.
Yando and of the plaintiff's husband,
objects to her son living with his wife,
w ho she characterizes as a being of
.the vilest order. Mr. Moran, the son
and husband, sometimes goes 'out
walking In company with his wife
against the very warm remonstrntion
of his maternal relative. Mrs. Yando,
the defendant, upholds her mother's
objections, and says her bi other Is a
cowardly thing because the wife of his
boom appeals with more strength to
him than does his mother's and sla
Mrs. Moran, Jr., nee Miss Maxwell,
who is a comely young lady of very
pleasing appearance, was Jlrst heard
She nvers that on Sunday last as she
was on her way to her home near Wil
son Creek, Mrs. Yando, her husband's
sister, followed her, using all sorts of
vile epithets nnd making dire threats
toward her physical well-being. The
language which the plaintiff alleges
was used toward her is too indecent
to appear in print. On another occa
sion Mrs. Moran, the plaintiff, was in
vited out into the road to be killed,
it is alleged. Several times like threats
were made, it was claimed, nnd In con
cluding the plaintiff declared: "X am
afraid of my life of her."
Martin Brennan, who was within
hearing distance on one of the occa
sions mentioned, supported Mrs. Mor
an's testimony. Mrs. Maxwell, mother
of the plaintiff, testified to having
heard Mrs. Yando yell: "Nellie Max
well, I'll kill you when you come out
In the morning," with a profane tail
hanging on the end of the threat. Oth
er witnesses offered similar testimony
Mrs. Yando was then called. She is
a young woman of about two and
twenty and a decided brunette. She
weighs approximately ITS pounds and
her temper is as large as her body.
T didn't threaten to kill her," ex
claimed the defendant, "but I did soy
Hint I'd give her a good trimming Mon
day morning, and a trimming she will
set. She called my mother names and,
If my brother won't stick up for his
mother, I will. I threatened to lick
her, but I didn't intend to kill her.
Whore's our Willie? He is a cowardly
thing. He'll got a trimming, too, be
fore he's through."
The defendant tried to produce some
articles by which they said they could
show that the plahuirf deserved the
hard names applied to her, but the
ameiman was satisfied from the
threats made before him that Mrs.
Moran had some causa for her com
plaint nnd he 'held the defendant un
der $100 bonds and gave her a good
lecture on her pugilistic attitude.
Meantime William will continue to
keep company with his wife, but ap
pearances Indicate that more trouble
Is ahead, as Mrs. Yando declared he
would have to be trimmed.

The rug bnrt been placed close to u

A HUMOR PROVED FALSE.
Mrs. Louisa Wilson Denies an In
tention to Sue VanBergen & Co.
A rumor was started yesterday morn
Ing by some one with nn Imagination
worthy of better things, that Mrs.
Louisa Wilson, widow of David Wil
son, who was killed by tho explosion
of a boiler at Van Horgcn & Co.'s
fundry on Hundny, had taken steps to
bring suit against tho company for
damages. This picturesque prevarica
tor illuminated his narrative with so
ninny suppositious reasons why thd
step was to bo taken that the tale
. ..., ..., .v ,,. irimii tnuv tuw I'ti1-
found credulous listeners and befoie
the day was well advanced n number
of different versions were being scat
tered about the city as to the condi
tion of the bolter when It was explod
ed. If all of tho different cracks and
llssures that were alleged to have
been round in the boiler had existed
It would have made a first-class
sprinkling cart If put on wheels, nnd
not by any, possible way of tinkering
could it havo been put to use without
deluging any fire that was built with
in reaching distance of It. The ru-
i mor spread, as rumors have a habit
of doing, all the day, and the majority
i of citizens puzzled their brnlns to con-
' jecture upon what possible grounds
a suit for damages could Ho agntnst
the company when It hnd been proven
at the coroner's incptest that It was
Wilson himself who had made the last
examination of the ill-fated boiler, and
had reported that It was all right, or,
at all events, had made no report of
finding anything amiss. Beyond a
solemn shaking of the head and a
look of profound wisdom, no one
could be found to say positively that
the boiler had ever been in need of
the slightest repair.
Yesterday afternoon, Mrs. Wilson
I emphatically denied that she icontcni
j plated bringing a suit against Van
j llergen & Co. She was nmazed to
learn that such a report had gained
I circulation and she wished to have
! it said in the most positive way that
she had not thought of taking such nn
action. She is on the most friendly
terms with the company and deeply
appreciated their sympathy In her
Mr. Charles O. Mellen, the manager
of the company, said he had not heard
directly of such a rumor, but was not
surprised, because he had been expect
ing that some one would start up with
an allegation similar to this.
The coi oner's jury that met on
Tuesday morning unearthed nothing
new that could fix the blame and ren
dcied a verdict In accordance with
that fact. As an ample opportunity
was offered then for anyone to come
forward with proof or suspicion that
the boiler was not In good' condition,
it is hardly possible that evidence of
that character could he lorthcomlng
A Man Killed.
