metropolitan atm cphere, and the
sob sisters sniff it as a sweet savor,
Lurid headlines shout out a story of
sin and shame, of sorrow and suffer.
ing, of bloodshed and crime,.
With T. Jenkins Hains, who with
his brother, Captain Peter C.
RHains, is charged with the slaying
of Win. E. Annis, placed on trial
this week, the sob sisters will hold
high revel of overworked adje tiveps
No murder trial in recent years has
offorded suoh an opportunity for
appeals to passion and prejudice
For weels8 the sot) sisters have
been at work on their joyous task,
dissoting every emotion of the
principals in the bloody tragedy,
examining every aspect of the fain.
ous case and setting forth their
theories in lurid and impressionist.
Some have interviewed the
mother of the accused man, paint.
ing a word-picture ot she whom
they term a "mother of sorrows."
Others have indulged in attempts
at analyzing the character of T.
Jenkins Haine, the "ogre," the
"eea'volf." Captain Hains has
been the subject of many ambi-
tious efforts. One of these, sur.
charged with pathos, seeks to bring
tears to the eyes of thic reader in
"He was the most pathetic figure
on earth-,-a young man broken on
the wheel of fate in his youth, the
joy of living quenched forever for
him, old in sorrow before he is old
in years. He is the tallest of the
three brothers., a ',np, i]"ti r!y, up- ,

have been handsome enough to
have captured any girl' filany when
his face wis lit up by happiness,
but now he looks; wan and pinched,
as if some cruel wind had blown
over him and bitIhted him."
The gifted aut inreas shows great
knowledge of thw verbal eccentri-
cities of spooks1 in the following
"His face is the baddest human
face I ever saw, and his voice when
he speaker is like the voice of a
ghost, so void, so lifeless, so sur-
charged with deathless, woe is it."
And what sublimity of grief and
hopeless, helpless woe is in the con-
clusion of this sob sister's tale:
"Ilis voice trailed off into silence
again, his brooding eyes bent upon
the table, whers his hands were
drawing, drawing, drawing mean-
ingless pictures, while his thoughts,
as in a treadmill, went their dreary,
hopeless rounds of a sorrow for
w'ich there is no cure."'
"'Poor P'etr HRains!I
"'Poor Peter Halins," indeed. He
has many things to hear, and not
the least of these is the mock sym.
pathy of the sisterhood of sobs.
And in this sisterhood is his own
wife, writing for the yellow papers
the story of her life in the arnmy
-brazen, shameless, vulgar no.
counts in which she herself occu.
