Another Horrible Outrage at liar-
HARRISBURG, April 22, 1899
Dear Sir—Last night at n late hour,
three young then, about 19 or 20 years
of age, prowling about the lower end of
the town, in pursuit, it is supposed, of a
girl of doubtful character, stopped at
the house of a Mr. Neip, and raised a
disturbance in front of it. Mr. Neip's
son, a returned volunteer from Mexico,
desired them to go away from the prem
ises, which they resisting, and insulting
him at the same time, he struck one of
them, named Kemble, the son of a mer
chant tailor of this place i who thereupon
drew a dh'k kritfa, and repeatedly stab
bed hitti in the region of the heart. His
Wounds are severe, and at this time are
said to be mortal. While the affray was
going on, Mr. Neip came out of the
house to the rescue of his son, when lie
also was set upon and stabbed by anoth
er of the party, a son of Mr. Bomgard
ner, the keeper of a tavern at the rail
road depot. The other youngster na
med Seiler, took no part in the homi
cide, but endeavored to seperate the par
ties, and prevent injury to either of
them. The whole town is in a state of
excitement at this bloody outrage, es
pecially as the public mind had hardly
recovered from the murder of Mr. Knep
ley, by his crazy son a week ago. Born

Mr. Webster Conquerred.
The Washington correspondent of the Spring- . 1
field Republican mentions the following amu
sing incident. Mr. Foote was addressing
the Senate, when Mr. Webster asked leave to
interrupt him a moment.
Mr. Foote turned towards Mr. W. who was
sitting directly behind him, and addressed him
as nearly as I can recollect in the following
strain : The Hon. Senator from Massachusetts
the distinguished Senator from Massachusetts,
the Statesman, the orator, the scholar, the phy
losopher—(here Mr. W. who, up to this time
had kept his eye fixed on Mr. F. covered his
face with both hands, and Mr. F. then proceed
ed as follows:) the man whose speeches are
destined to live as long as the English language,
he who will hereafter rank alongside the Hem
ostheneses and Burkes of our own race"—Mr.
Webster's patience seemed to be exhausted at
this point, and he belched forth from the top of
his lungs, ~O h! get out!" What conclusion
Mr. P. brought his elaborate eulogium to, I am
unable to say, for amid the roar of merriment
and laughter that ensued, he could not be heard
for some minutes after.
Tux MISSOURI TWIN9.-These wonderful
children are now in St. Louis. They are the
