Poor old Henry Powell, colored, who was
employed in Lynch's Foundry at Terra Cottn,
started on Saturday night last to visit his "ole
'onian," who made her living by 'working in the
Soldiers1 Home. As Henry approached the east
ern gato of the Soldiers' Home grounds, shortly
after 9 o'clock, the little terrier which was his
companion began to bark. Soon a shot rang out
on the night air, and the old negro fell to the
ground with a bullet through his neck. His
dead body was found by the roadside not far
from the gate Sunday morning, with the poor
little terrier curled up on his arm. The shot in
the dark which killed the poor old negro was
fired by John Dolan, watchman at the Soldiers'
Home gate, who has recently been bothered
considerably by 6tray dogs barking in the
grounds. Dolan was arrested, but released again
on the verdict of the coroner's jury that Pow
ell's death was accidental. Dolan will probablv
be more careful about shooting in the dark here
after. Heurich's Extra Pale Lager. Ask for it.

ones. The locality Is covored
framo ware-houses, used bv
wholesale fish dealers for carrying; on their
traffic, the whole property belonging to Mr.
Thomas XV. lliloy. the well-known wood and
coal merchant. The engines were quickly oh
tho ground and on arrival of Chief I'.urls a
special alarm was rung In for an extra engine
and hook and ladder company, as from the in
flammable nature of tho property it looked as
if it would require oxtrn work to
keep the lire within bounds. The
work done by tho department wa6 of tho best
character. The property destroyed was that ot
Mr. S. J. Heed, Jr., '200 barrels of salted fish,
and other fresh fish valued at $5,000; XV. A.
