A dispatch published In yesterday

assault upon and murder ot Mr. AdnJ)h
Zimmerman, at Mounts Junctlan en
Taesdsy night, but the details of the
affair eould not he glyen at that time as
fully as we have since learned them, and
as we now give tbem to our readers.
As stated In the dUpatch above refer

THE VCRDKRED MAM,
Mr. Adolph Zimmerman, was the pro
prietor ot a small store at Mounds
Junction. His residence and store
were all under one root, and that portion
ot the bouse occupied by the family as a
residence was separated from the s'ore
room only by a thin board partition.
The building is not to exceed fitly feet
distant from the Illinois Central railroad
station house at the Junction, and Is a
low one-story structure. The entrance
to the store faces the Illinois Central
track. As Is usual wltn country march
ants, Mr. Zlmmermaa closes his store
early, seldom later than eight o'clock In
the evening. On the ,
NIOHT OF THE MCRDER,
as near as can be ascertained, between
seven and eight o'clock, a negro called at
tbe store and purchased a small quantity
of calico, and handed Mr. Zimmerman a
bill out of which to take pay for tbe
goods. In order to make the change
Mr. Zimmerman took from bis pocket
A ROLL Or MONET,
which the negro saw. When Mr. Zim
merman took this money from his pocket
it was noticed that the negro watched his
movements and noted particularly into
which pocket he put the money when he
returned It to hie person. After this
transaction tbe negro remained In the
store tor some time, bnt finally left,
Irnvlng tbe packago of calico laving on
the counter saying he would call fur l(
after awnile. Ho then
and for an hour and a half Mr. Zimmer
man saw no more of uioi, However
bis whereabouts from tbe tim be left tbe
stnro until tbe murder took place Is known
to hsye been spent in visiting among
onif of his colored amuaintkneea In
the neighborhood. At about, nine o'clock,
fr perhaps a few minute? later, tbs nagro
ETl'RSED TO IUE STORE.
On entering tbe store he carried In bis
hand an old -fashioned navy
six revolver, and approach
ing Mr. Zimmerman aiked him for some
cup, saying that the weapon was loaded
but that it had no caps on, and that it
wss a good thing to have wheu one was
compelled to be out at night. Zimmer
man, little thinking that he was placing
In the hands ot the cold.bioodid villain
who stood before him the means that
was so soon to rob him ot his life, gave
the negro five csps. The negro
took them, and one by one as
ht placed thiMQ on the tubs,
ho kept up a liVNjy chattering by which
he kept Mr. Zliniuenn. n's at'eu'lnn
drawn to hits. Ah he put the Unt op i.n

was conveyed to everybody who could

of tbe .evening. On Wednesday .morn

and two or three county constables
started In search of Redding, and al-
though they worked asildaously they
could not come up with him. Redding
lives on a small farm located about ball
way between Villa Ridge and Pulaski
stations. Notwithstanding the tact that
Sheriff Wilson and bis poise visited his
home on Wednesday, It has since been
learned that Redding was at home on
that djT and eat dinner there, and bad
not been gone from the house to exceed
an hour when the officers arrived.
