venation with Mr, Carle tbe young fellow
stated that he had borse with blm, but
that the animal bail been ridden bard
and be wanted to give him a tew duys'
rest and : would leave him with Mr,
Carle until his return. After question
ing the follow for some time, Mr. Carle
became convinced that tbo fellow had
stolen the horse, and accused him
with the theft. The lellow, alter
a good deal of parleying, virtually
acknowledged that the horae was stolen
and attempted to get away. However,
Mr. Carle succeeded In detaining him
until Chief Arter could be sent for, and
on the arrival ot Arter the lellow was
arretted and locked up. The horse, a
small sorrel, bllud ;in the right eye, .It

dict of death by suicide, and the senti
ment among them that a further Investi
gation should be bad was unanimous.
Accordingly at 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon the jury reassembled In Judge
Mertz' olflce, and on motion of Dr. N.
R. Casey it was resolved to reconsider
their former verdict and to enter Into
a more thorough aud
All the witnesses ,who testified at the
first sitting, and a large number ot
others, were resummoned to appear be
fore tbe ury. Judge Mertz acted as
foreman ol the jury .and conducted the
examination ot tbe witnesses.

They went Into the depot together and
saw Ihe body lying on the bed. The
room was quite dark at tbo time, but
they could see very well. Carter was
laying on bis back with his right hand
on his breast. The hand was covered,
but a portion of the tlbow was exposed.
He asked Mr. Kittle to move the body
and see If It was rigid. Mr. Kittle put
his bind under Carter's head, and when
he palled It out again bis hand was cov
ered with blood. The hand was covered
and be could not see the pistol. Mr.
Morris said that if the hand had been
exposed he could have seen the pistol.
Mr, Kittle did not remoye the clothing.

The greater portion of the time while
Miss Xewgent was on the stand she was
crying bitterly, and answered the ques
tions propounde 1 with her lace covered
with a handkerchief. She is rather
above the ordinary heighth of women,
with a handsome face, bright black eyes,
fair complexion and light hair, and withal
quite good looking. Her conduct while
on the stand was modest, and she
seemed to feel deeply the position in
which she wa placed. She wore a com
mon blue waterproof, and hat covered
with a browu veil.
Millie Craln, an old colored woman,
testified that she had been oat attending
a sick woman, aud It was about 4 o'clock
In the morning when she went home.
Just after passing Carter's otllce she
heard a sound like that of the discharge
ot a pistol, which came from the direc,
lion ot the depot. She paid no attention
to It at the time, and went home.
A number ot other witnesses were ex
amined, but nothing further of Impor
tance was elicited, ine lnqiien was
then adjourned until Monday morning,
at 10 o'clock, when several witnesses
will be examined.
fCBMC SENT1MI AT.
Public sentiment has undergone uo
change as to the manner ot Mr. Carter's
death, and there Is not three men In the
place who believe that it was a suicide.
All tho circumstances the position of
the burly , the wound In the head, and
a dozen other Incidents go to show that
ltjwas a case of murder. But who did
it and the motive, are mysteries which
It seems impossible to fathom.
It was not deflnately known yester
day whether tbe funeral would take
place on Mouday or Tuesday, owing to
the fact that It Is not known when the
relatives of tho deceased will arrive.
I he Odd Fellows of Mound City and
Cairo will attend the funeral.

why people should buy tholr grocerlei
from Pettis A Bird :
1 it. Because their stncki is the target'
frehest and choicest In the city.
2nd. -Because they lell goodiof every
kind tbraper than any other houe In the
3rd. lUetiUie they deliver goods more
promptly and In better .'Imp than any
other house In the city.
4th. live aue they keep the most com
plete slock, and persons desiring to
purchase 'ilflerent kinds of goods are not
compelled to go eliewhero because
Messrs. P. JL B. bave not got tbe goods
they want. .
Theso we consider substantial reasons
why our readers should buy their goods
ot Pettis A Binn,
