father was a very unassuming hero
born to do a great work, which bo did

smacked of tho age of chivalry rather
than of tho nineteenth century. Per

bis father was a "striker" rather than
a liberator and protector, with a price
set on his bead.
It Is tho talk of Europe that young
Garibaldi's sword has a price set upon
it nud that ho will fight for tho sldo
that puts up tho biggest purso. The
career of his "foreign legion" during
tho war tetween Turkey nnd Orcece Is
often recalled as nn orgy of plundering,
In which tho victims were the very

It horso racing Is a sport and not a

their conspicuous activity In gambling

Nortbport, N. Y., July 14.-On the
threshold of tho home that once had
been his, but which was shut to him
fur he shot his father-ld-law on Dec.
27, 1000, Dr. James W. Simpson was
shot by tho wife of the man whom hu
had killed. Simpson was acquitted ot
tho murder of his father-in-law In spite
of testimony which his wife und his
mother-in-law gavo against him. Tha
killing, bowevor, had alteuatcd bis
wlfo from him, and It was when de
manding to see her In order to arrange
with ber to make their separation per
manent by means of a divorce that thu
bullot came entitling through a glass
door. It entered tbo dentin's abdomen
and lodged la the lower part of tbe
right luug. He hurried tu New York,
where ho went to Roosovelt hospital
to huve an operation performed.
After receiving a frightful wound
Dr. Simpson showed that be hail mar
velous fortitude and nerve. Suffering
intonie pain, knowlug that Internal
hemorrhage was sarplng bis life, he
traveled alone from Nnrthport to Long
Island City and from there, with little
help, mado his way to Roosevelt hos
pital, And on tbe way, Knowing he
was looking death closely In the face,
he iiiM solemnly:
I may die before morning. If I die
It will be with n consi li'iice clear of
the murder of my father-in-law."
Wife Loyal to Mcther.
The shooting of Simpson came its an
other tragic Incident In n household In
which wealth had caused dissensions
which turned daughter against bet
parents. Not until her father had ben
shot by tbe man whom she hail in.tr
rted and to whom she had htvn loyal
did tbe daughter return to her motlicr
and desert tbe man who bad done the
killing So bitter was the feeling of
mother and daughter toward Siiup-ou

When Dr. SUnpsnn, who was one ot
the meet promluent dentists lu this
section, killed his fathur-lu-lnw, Hart
ley T. Horner, tho revulsion of feeling
which Mrs. Simpson felt toward her
bus'jand was such that when the Jury
acquitted the dontlst she denounced
the twelvo men for what she said was
a gross miscarriage of Justlco.
Plmpsou had lived in tbe home of his
fatbor-ln-law, who was n wealthy re
tired tobacco planter. There wore
many quarrels In the household, and
Mrs. Simpson always stood with her
husband, but after tho killing of her
father she and her mother told the
dentist never to enter their home
again, and It was because he was ubout
to violate their Injunction that he was
Statements from Dr. Simpson and
from Mrs. Horner as to the circum
stances attending the shooting ills
agree. The dentist says that be bad
received word that his wife Intended
to tuu him for a divorce and thut he
went to the Horner home to talk with
her about It. He nays be rang the
doorbell and upon receiving no re
sponse peered through the door pane.
He saw Mrs, Horner, be says, niul
called to her to open the door. Then,
Pr. Simpson says. Mrs. Homer grab

bullet entered his body above the nb

Mrs. Horner Hoes nut deny mat sue

had several times called at the bouse
and that his visits vveru unwelcome.
When he mine again sho says she or
dered blm off the place, nud wh be
refused to go she took up n revolver
that was lying on n rack in the hall
aud shot at him. Constable Hanson,
who arrested Simpson In Ifssl when
the dentist shot Mrs. Horner's hus
band, arrested Mrs. Homer. Sho was
charged with felonious assault. After
Justice R. W. Hawkins had lixed ball
at $3,000, Mrs. Hlnipion, the prisoner's
daughter, guve bond and secured tbe
release of her motlicr.
Mn. Klmpson said thut while Bhe

her mother was absolutely Justified
and said Dr. Simpson got what he do

room of tbe bouse at the time, but
upon hearing n shut she dropped what
she was doing and ran to see If ber

found that It was ber husband she

Win flight to Ent.r 1,500 Miter Rsci
at Olympio Qamss.
London, July 14. Italn Interfered
badly with tbe fourth International
Olympiad nt Shepherd's bush, and at.
though It cleared off before tbe con
tests, tho attendance full far short of
expectations. Tho testing capacity of
the Stadium Is upward of 70,0ml, and
while the covered stands contained sec
tions which were well filled, there wore
many vacant spaces.
In some of the events, too, tho con
testants appeared affccti-d by the ad
verse weather conditions, but In other
events, particularly the LW meters
race, in which tho greatest interest
centered, the men were up to their
form, and twice the record for the dis
tance was smashed. Mclrln W. Shcp-
pard of tho Irish-American Athletic
club of New York was the first to ac
complish tho trick, whon In the second
heat, prested hard by his team mate.
J. P. Halitead of tho Now York Ath
letic club, be ran thu distance in tha
tplendtd tlmo of 4 minutes 3 seconds.
Just two-fifths ot a second taster than
that mado by J. D. Llgbtbody of tbo
unlvorslty of Chicago at tbe Olympic
games at St. Louis In 1004.
Tbo two Americans In this heat beat
a number of good men, including O.
uuttcrlleld, tbo English four mile
champion, who Mulshed n bad third.
J. P. Sullivan of the Irish-American
Athletic club and Llghtbody, wbo were
Brat and socond respectively In the
tint heat of this event, took longer to
cover tho dlitance, but they were not
preisvd aud dnubtleis could have done
better It It bad bocu necessary. Mead
ows of Caauda set out to make the
pace In this heat, but Llghtbody wont
to the trout In the stretch nnd seemed
a likely winner uutll Sullivan, with n
line burst of speed, passed blm n few
yards from thu tape.
The liost performance of tho day,
however, was that of M T Hallows,
an Oxford blue, who cut n full two sec
onds off tho record, much to the sur
prise of everybody, ns Hallows always
has boon at his best at thu tbreo miles,
and 1,500 meters was considered too
short for him. Ho Is now thought to
be tho most serious rival of tho Amer
icans in the final of this event, which
will bo run today.
