AT LARGE. ana Death Straggle With HI Brother-ln-LaThe Peril of HI Wife. Bt. Joseph, Mo., June 19. James B. Mol' low, an insane patient, escaped from Blate Asylum No. 20 last evening, and made his way to his home, near Gower, twenty mile distant, arriving there about eleven o'clock. Hia wife had retired, but her brother, Mr. Allen, was up. The crazy man silently entered the rear door, struck Allen a terrible blow on the head with a bar of Iron, producing insensibility. Next he entered his wife's bedroom and awoke her. He had a pistol, which he presented to hor head and bade her follow. The frightened woman obeyed and be led to the orchard. He commanded hor to take a position with her back against a tree. The woman complied. The maniac drew from his pocket a number of stones whicb he picked up on the way, and, with a revolver in his left hand, pointed at tbe woman, began to pelt ber with them. When she turned to run into the house the maniac opened fire on her with a revolver, but did not succeed in hitting her. In the meantime Allen had returned to consciousness, and, hearing the shooting, rushed to the spot armed with a Winchester rifle. It wss very dark, and before bo knew it the maniac was within ten feet of him, and began firing. Allen raised his rifle and fired, Mollow falling to the ground with a shot through tho thigh. Thinking he had fatally injured the man, Allen dropped his rifle and went to his assistance. Just as he was stooping to raise him up tbe maniac caught him about the nock, and then ensued a life and death struggle. Tbe great strength of the craiy man soon overpowered Allen, and just as he was giving up Mrs. Mollow came up and struck her husband on tbe back of the head, knocking bim senseless. Boon after the sheriff and bis doputies arrived and Ironed the maniac, who is now safely lodged in the asylum hospital. A Lire Cincinnati, June 15. Tbe very general Impression that Cincinnati furnished a largo part of the clique which has been charged wit h managing the Chicago wheat deal turned attention in thia direction wheu the panic in wheat in Chicago developed.

A prominent broker, being asked his opinion of tho truth of tho chargea mada by Itoacufeld & Co that tho Cincinnati members of the clique bad failed to fur-nlsmoney said It was more likely thst the market was broken In Chicago by lying about Cincinnati banks. "Why," said he, "there woro fifty or mora y telegrams received on 'change 'Whoat weak, owing to resaying: port of run on Fidelity Bank,' or 'Wheat weak, account rumors weakness Cincinnati banks."' The Fidelity Bank has received from a nutuberof correspondents an" anonymous prinUxl circular intended to injure the bank's standing.
