snai from i on Smith, Arkansas, ar
rested one Cooper, a photographer
who has been living for nearly
two years in different parts of
Western North Carolina, and who
he was plying his trade. The charge
against him is that about two years
ago he, with two accomplices, murder
ed a mail-carrier in Arkansas and rob
bed the mail-bags. The three then fled
the State. Officers have been on their
paths 4vek eej&ejfjonn4s'iiiQ of
their crime, and about two wee"ks ago
Cooper's accomplices were arrested.
Marshal Barnes has had Cooper shad
owed for more than a year, and being
at last ready to secure his game, he set
off for the place where he knew he
would Md 1hi. " Pa&rifig tlfTQHgh Char

clapped a pair of handcuffs over his
wrists. . fWithf rjWqaive f ha maishal
came- down ihepartlnbvirVAse
ville Railroad the same afternoon, and
left with him for the South via the Air
Line Railroad yesterday morning.
A sad feature in connection with the
arrest is that the murderer left behind
him young.wife andi two httle child
ren. While living in Arkansas he was
married "to "a voune : eirlr: 'Choctaw
; half-breed and she, will their, children,
has accompanied Cooper in all his wan
derings. When he was taken from her
at Hendersonville she saw him for per-
strangers in a strange land.
The evidence against the three men
accused is said to oe conclusive, and it
is 6aid further that ,Cooper is charged
with another murder in Arkansas, pre
vious to that of the mail-rider.
Farmer and Mechanic will be appre
ciated here where the subject of it is so
well-known: "It is right amusing to see

fingering; 2d year, etudes of Dencla;
