About 4:60 o'clock Wednesday*"after
noon William Costly, a colored man in
the employ of Eddy & Son, was shot
twice in the breast while cleaning a 22-
caliber revolver. The weapon was rusty
and Costly was making an effort to re
move the cartridges. In some inex
plainable way two chambers were dis
charged. The balls entered the centre
of the chest and were but two inches
apart. The singular manner of the
shooting created suspicion that Costly
intended to commit suicide. He wasminutes

The first newspaper published by a
Negro in America was the Ram's Horn,
of New York, which appeared in 1834
and lived about one year. Sam T. Ward
a fugitive slave was the editor. The
next was the Colored American, started
in the same city in 1836, and had a short
life. One of its editors, Phillip A. Bell,
now ninety years of age, is the editor of
the San Francisco Flevator. The only
other Negro newspaper started prior to
the emancipation of the race was the
Anglo-African, established in New York
in 1858. Thomas Hamilton was the ed

Never before has Keokuk been in
such a whirl of gayety as this summer,
the many visitors that have been at
tracted to our pleasant little city com
plain that they came for rest, but, alas!
found none, parties, socials and picnics
have succeeded each other so rapidly that
it has been rather difficult to keep up
with them all. The select picnic of the
season was given by the Parlor Circle on
the 16th in honor of the visitors in our
city. Everpbody was on the qui vive
for some weeks, and Wednesday morn
ing the lowering clouds and the distant
rumble of thunder nor the heavy rain
of the previous evening could dampen
pleasureable anticipations of the merry
picnicers who filled their large excursion
cars and wended their way to Wild Cat
Springs the lovljest picnic grounds for
miles around. Miller's orchestra ac
companied us and those who cared to
indulge in the Terpsichorean art tripped
the light fantastic toe to their hearts
content. The croquet grounds and the
swings were not neglected by any
means and the curtains of night began
to close around the light of day eve the
happy party gathered up the fragments
of good things, under which the tables
fairly greaned, and voted solidly that
they had never spent a pleasanter day.
The Parlor Circle is gaining rapidly
and winning golden opinions the
community for its recherche entertain
ments and the excellence of the pro
which characterize them. The
one thing needful is young men there is
a deplorable scarcity of the desired ai
tide here owing to the fact that there is
very little employment for any colored
man, and nothing at all for an intelli
gent one, unless his soul does not rise
above the veriest drudgery.
