vcre illness, followed by some years of
poor health, interrupted his .shorthand
career for u long time, but in spite of
these drawbacks he lias attained no
small degree of success In his chosen
profession. He pursued the study of
phonography entirely without other aid
than that afforded by the Manual of
phonography and Repouer's Compan
ion, and when ho was able to write at
the rnteof one hundred words a min
ute he was given a position as stenog
laphqr in the largo mercantile business
of Cnrvell Brothers (his uncles), In
Chailoltestown, Prince Edward Island.
During his employment there much of
his leisure time was devoted to im
proving .himself ulang stenagraphle

The Boston settlement near the Fern
wood colliery, a mile or two in tho
woods cast of tills city, is witnessing
some very lively times of late over a
love affair among tho Italian young
people of tho settlement. Domlnick
Lobello has won the affections of the
belle of the village, and last Christmas
night dining a fracas between f.obollo
und another man, Lobello's sweetheart
camo to the rescue and shot his assail
ant In the face. The wound, while
serious, was not fatal. C'hlvlocu Collei
lo also has a strong admiration for this
fair daughter of Italy, and his Jealousy
was very much aroused, according to
the story told In Alderman Barrett's
court this moinlng, at the preference
the girl showed for Lobello, during tho
fracas, and threatened to havo his life.
Last night as Lobello entered n house
where ho was about to make a call Col-
lelo sneaked up behind him and at-f
templed to stab him with a dagger. Ho
was caught In tho act, however, and a
crime was prevented, Lobello appeared

As yet an Imiuent has been held to In
vestigate tho mysterious death of John
Wachs, whoso body was found decap
itated on tho I.ehlgh Valley tracks In
this city on Christmas morning, Tho
remains have been burled two days,
Coroner Beige Issuing a death cc-rtlH-cuto
to tho effect that deceased was ac
cidentally killed on tho railroad. The,
coroner, It Is. claimed, says ho will
hold no Inquest In the case unless tho
family ask for one. There are inuny
people here, Including the chief of po
lice, parties who viewed the body and
several physicians, who will accept no
other theory than that The man had
beep murdered. It is a strange fact
that it has not yet developed what train
struck the man. There was snow on
the ground that night and It surely
would have been easy for lUfMiginecr
to gco whether or not hisHie hud
struck any person. The family, It is'
said, is not1 satisfied with the coroner's
decision and will demand that an in?
quest be held. If the coroner compiled,
the body will doubtless bo exhumed apd
examined by a number of physicians.
