A DETECTIVE'S SHOT.
Wash Middlcton, the noted Bald
Knobber ot Taney county, Mo., escaped
from Forsyth tail last October, and fled
to the mountain fastnesses of Newton
county, Ark., saying that he would never
be taken save. J. h. Holt, aaetective
from Colorado, went into northern Ar
ansas for a season of rest among tne
mountains of that wild region, and Lear
log of Middlcton and the $000 reward.
once began to plan lor tne capture oi
the outlaw. The detective disguised
himself, putting on a suit of very ragged
clothes, and shadowed Middleton as
close! v as possible, seeking an oppor
tunity to "get the drop" on bis man so
that he might take him alive. There was
a picnic recently at tho head of Buffalo
river, ten miicssoutb ot jasper, mewton
county. Middlcton and his two sons
went to the picnic, all well srmed and on
the alert as usual. The disguised detect-
va was on the ground also, watching his
game. Holt resolved to make a Doia
venture and openly face Middlcton in tne
crowd. Middleton soon became sus
picious of the mysterious movements of
tneraggea stranger wno iouowca mm
everywhere through the crowd, and told
bis sons that the man meant mischief snd
instructed them to decoy him out of tbc
crowd and he would kill "the sneaking
thief. " Holt kept closely after h:s prey,
however, and Middlcton, seeing that he
could not ect bis . man out of. tne
crowd, turned suddenly on the detective
and demanded his purpose, saying at the
same time: "I have made up my mind to
kill you, you sneaking thief." In an
Instant Bolt's pistol wss glistening a few
inches in front of Middleton's face and
the words, "Hands up; you are my pris
oner " told the fugitive outlaw that his
su-picions were well founded. Although
Holt had the drop on his man. Middle-
ton's ritrht band, instead of going up.
srrasped a revolver at his left side, and
the detective tired, the ball entering the
iheek about an inch below the eye, pass
ing through the brain and coming out at
tho back of the head. Middleton fell
iifelesa to the srronnd In the midst of a
crowd surrounding a lemonade stand.
So quickly was the fatal work that the
report of the detective's pistol and the
falling of tbe slain outlaw were tne nrst
