to hlin-elt the beautiful appearance they
would pre-ent when they hud become

his hopes, so far as the trees were
concerned, were of short duration. Yes
terday morning he awoke, and, before he
had partaken of his morning meal, could
not resist tho temptation of casting one
look upon the trees and their boxes.
When he arrived at the gate, what a sight
met his gaze. The boxes, which
were constructed of clear yellow plue,
were lying on tho ground broken to
atom?, and the trees, from about the
middle of theirtrunks to the ground, were
stripped of their hark. This had undoubt

and formerly marshal of Mound City,
had shot nnd killed a negro wench named
The particulars of the shooting, a

In the icinljy ot the saloon when the
tragedy was enacted. are as follows:
lioss w;i, in the.-aloon conversing with
the Proprietor, when Alice Glbbs, accom
panied by a white woman named Kinma
Hutton, came In ami called for u glass of
beer. After the beer had been drunk and
paid for, and the two women had kit the

and was about to run through the door,
when her pursuer leveled Ids weapon and
llred the shot which put an end to her
life. The ball entered the left side, and
pa ed through the lower portion of the
heart. The wretched wench fell Inside
the door of the saloon upon the floor,
where she expired almost iu-taiitly.
Hos.-, as we understand, did not make

Dr. Wai'duer held u post mortem
examination on the body, ami found that
she came to her death by a pi-tol hall

through the chest, opening tho right side
of the heart.
Six men and women, who were hi the
nelgboi hood of the scene when the bloody
deed was enacted, were summoned as
witnesses at the coroner's Inquest, the
testimony of all being precisely the same.
The following Is the testimony of the
