The Illinois State Orange it now bedd

meeting. The convention met or Tues
day, and was composed, at thti outset, of
between flvo and tlx hiindrud men, with
an expected increato of two hundred, tho
delegate! being the mailers or lie
Oranges of tho state, now numbering
about eight hundred. Tho business of the
convention was opened by an address by
the Grand Master, in which ho staled that
the Btato Grange was org&nir.ed Murch
3lb, 1871, with tweuty Grangers - at its
lacond meeting seventy sub Granges
were reported, nnd at iu present,
eight hundrel. Tho Grand Master
deprecates any reUllou oa U part of tho
Grange or Patrons of Husbandry, with
the state Farming Assooiation, or any
organlxatlon commlttad to any political
caus"; he recommends sinco certain
pltw manufacturers refuie to deal with

earnest and from their rapid growth in
the atate, It is ovident the reign of

A fow weeks after Iloclt.cher camo to

hor son to Europe On his return, about
ten weeks ago, he found that tlio hlrod
man had won tho ntrectloli! of tlio fitter;
and that tbo mother had agreed to n mar-
r!a;o bulween incm. lie sworn that tho
weddinir would not tnkn place, and in this
ho was encouraged by Wobor, who was a
rullor for Cora Croncnbold'a hand.
llotb young men kept tho family In con
stant turmoil, aud frlghtenod Iloetticher
away from tho houio, but Cora nnd her
moihor kopt up secret communication
with him, nnd finally arranged that tho
wodding should tt.ke placo on Friday iho
On this day young Croncnbold went
down lown oo business for Ins mother,
but suspecting it was trick to prevent
him from inltirfering with tho wedding,
ho nnd Wolmr hastily left their v.'oric,

listened for awhile, heard fomo com
motion In the room bulow, and, from tho
worua used In conv. nation between liU
mother and sister, judged that thoy were
going out to rnuet llo:ttseh"r and have
tho marriage perlonned, This nupiclsn
aroused his auger, which was heightened
on hearing a cToed carriage stop in lront
of tho house, and seeing l!oeltolir alight
and go into tho hallway. llreal;Ing tho
room-door opcti, ho euized his rovol
ver, rushel don stairs and kvelnl
his weapon at llocttscher's head.
Tha threatened man hur
riedly left the houso, followed by Cronen

at blm, then Jumped over tho feiico him
self an i continued the pursuit for about a
hundred feet, when two mora shots were
flrod, and Jicettscher fell ded In the flold
on tho west side of Grand avenuo at the
