Oh the morning of tho third day af
ter Oiok Fpssonden left his uncle's home
the city was In a state of alarm. The
police 'watched erybody suspiciously,
as they are wont to do when some great
crime has been committed and while
the: perpetrator Is still at large. Little
groups' oft, men here and there, talking
in low earnest' tones, indicated that
something extraordinary had recently
happened. Richard Y. Feasenden had
been found dead in his room that morn
lng, and the surrounding circumstances
gave evidence that he had b'een mur
dered. The body when discovered lay
before the hearth, face downwards. ' A
bullet hole in the back, near the spinal
column, must have caused death. There
was also an ugly wound in the back. of
the head, about an inch and a half long
and a quarter of an inch wide. -The' instrument-must
have been round, as the
gash was deeper in the center than at
the sides. Tho fact that both wounds
were in the bock pointed to murder, be
cause, although a man might be able to
shoot himself in the back, ho could not
well mako a gash in the back of his
head with any weapon. When found
tho dead man was attired in a shirt and
pantaloons, and having on no coat or
vest, people at once concluded that he
must have gotten out of bed just before
he was attacked. To substantiate this
view the bed-clothes appeared as if some
one had just gotten out. A rusty Colt
pistol, with a discharged cap on the tube
Under tho hammer, lay near tho body.
A pool of blood bad dried on tho"heirth,
and the shirt ho woro as well as tho car
pet near him were dyed red. The body
was perfectly cold and rigid. ' o
The first to discover the tragedy and
set the news of it going was Peter Crow
ley. Peter lived a short distance taway,
b larding in his sister's family. He kept
a small garden for Mr. Fessenden, at
tended to tho horses, and did "chores
about the house. Since the departure
of Mr. Fessenden's nephew and the
housekeeper Peter had been sleeping in
the house ih'a room'adjoining Mr. Fes
senden's bed-room. He did so at the
request of his employer, who seemed a
little lonely. But he had not seenMr.
Fessenden since a short time before noon
of the day before, when the old gentle-.
man came momo, somewnat unwen.
Peter had been working at tho" stable
during the afternoon, and at night went
to the home of his sister to sit up with
a sick child, having previously told his
employer that he would be absent.
When he returned in the morning Mr.
Fessendon was lying before the fire
place, having been dead some time, as
Tho coroner's inquest did not reveal
anything startling. A doctor testified
that Mr. Fessenden had been slightly in
disposed, and he had prescribed some
thing for him and the druggist identified
the half-filled medicine bottle on the
mantel-piece. A restaurant proprietor
testified i that 'J'Mr; Fessendon had made
'arrangementetxjtako meals at' his tables,
ana inai no naa not Deen mere since
dinner 'on the day before the report was
circulated. Mr. Morton, of the firm of
brokers, Morton & King, swore that Mr"
Fessenden. was in his office Monday
morning, and while there casually men
tioned that ho was unwell. The firm
held some notes on, Mr. Fessenden, one
of which' was due on tho previous Sat
urday. Mr. Fessenden instated on pay
ing it off, and promised to call that af
ternoon. The brokers also wished to
purchase some railroad stock from Mr.
Fessenden, and were very anxious to
get it into their hands, as tho market
made excellent offers to that line of
speculators. When Mr. Fessenden fail
ed to appear in the afternoon, Morton
made out a check in part payment of
the antount'agrced upon for tho railroad
stock and sent it to Mr. Fessenden's
house, with the note which was due.
The clerk who performed that errand
was Fred Seymour, and his testimony
was waited for by the public with a good
deal of anxiety.
Fred told- his story very clearly and
without Hesitation. -'He found Mr. Fes
senden peevish and fretful. His busi
ness with him occupied but a few min
utes:' Fred accurately described the po
sition in which he sat in a room next to
Mr. Fessenden's bed-room. When he
produced the note Mr. Fessenden went
into the bed-room, leaving the door ajar.
Fred saw him unlock the three pad-locks
'on the box, and count out five hundred
dollars fifty ten-dollar gold pieces.
These Fred tied up in his handkerchief
and carried back. Fred said the gold
must have been' in the bottom of the
box, as Mr. Fessenden had to remove
several sacks to set at it. Amontr the
'things piled upon tho floor from the box
was si large rusty pistol. On receiving
the note and the check Mr. Fessenden
thrust them into his outside coat pock
et., Fredease and freedom of manner
under.oximinatlon lifted the suspicion
which the public had placed against
Peter: Crowley was also suspected, of
knowing' pore about tho crime than he
cared to tell. Peter said that when be
found Mr. Feasenden dead in the bed
room, the lid of the box was standing
opon, and Mr. Fessenden's bunch of
keys was hanging on the ring, which was
attached to the key in the third pad
lock. There was no money in tho box.
He got into the housoby means of a key
to the night-lock, which Mr. Fessenden
had given him on Saturday. Ho had
scon Fred Seymour go in at tho front
gate somo ,timo Monday afternoon, but
djd not recollect of his going out. He
had found two silver dollars on a l'no
from the front 'door to the alley on the
n6rth Bide of the yard. The ground be
ing frozen, ho could Bee no tracks. Peter
was an excitable fellow and when he got
started, told most of his story without
Dick Fessenden was placed on the
stand, but out of respect to his feelings,
he was not detained .long. He told of
the difficulty with his uncle a few days
before. This was also testified to by
JemimaBrown. The testimony brought
out at the inquest had been in substance
made public before, and when tho coro
ner found thaf'Richard Y. Fessenden
came to his death by means of a deadly
weapon or weaponsat the hands of some
person or persons Unknown, tho public
was not satisfied.
Dick first heard of tho tragedy when
Peter Crowley came into his office and
gave him tho key to tho night-lock. It
was the same key that Dick had returned
to his irate uncle on leaving,. the house.
Peter bjur ted out tho news in his im
pulsive way, and told all he knew about
the circumstances. Of course Dick was
astounded. It was a severe shock.
'When Dick went to tho late home of his
uncle, he found that the neighbors had
congregated and a bunch of crepe hung
from the door-knob. That was Tuesday
afternoon, the same day tho murder had
been reported. The undertaker was pre
paring the body for burial. Dick moved
quietly about, speaking tb one and an
other, whom he knew. He recognized
one or two reporters in the gathering.
Ho wont up stairs to his own old room,
and a sound of weeping in the next
room attracted his attention. It was
Jemima, crying as if her heart would
break. It was a sad sight, one that
brought the moisture to Dick 'eyes.' He
tried to soothe her, but his efforts and
kindness only made the 'tender-hearted
house-keeper sob the harder. She had
looked on the old man, cold and motion
less, and the hard-set features) now dis
torted by tho agonies of a cruel'death,
roused emotions which she could not
suppress. Dick gave her the key which
Peter had left with him, and asked her
to look after the house for it tew days,
and this Jemima promised to, do.'
Returning to his boarding house,; Dick
passed the Marine Bank,1" and noticed
that crepe was displayed there also in
memory of the dead president.! The
cashier was standing on the great stone
steps, and called to him as he pass
ed. Mr. Seymour showed Dick into a
cozy room in the rear of the building,
gave him a chair and then left him for a
moment. A door opened into the counting-room,
from which came a low hum
of voices and a faint odor of cigar smoke.
The , employes were, busy, even though
tho president was dead, and the shut
ters were closed, and the crepe appeared
at the entrance. When 'Mr. 'Seymour
returned, he closed the door and handed
Dick a folded paper. ,
"That," said he, "is your uncle's will.
It has been locked up in tho vault of the
bank for three'months past." Dick took
the paper and read it slowly, while Mr.
Seymour watched him closely, The
document bequeathed all the wealth of
the murdered man to the person who
was reading it.
"Well?" said the cashier expectantly,
when Dick had refolded the paper. But
Dick was silent.
"The reason I was so hasty about this
matter," the cashier said, " is that what
ever is done toward bunting down the
person or persons who murdered Mr.
Fessenden, should bo done quickly, As
you see I am the one chosen by your
uncle, in that document to execute his
will and, naturally, I feel a responsi
bility under the existing circumstances.
Besides, suspicion rests heavily on my
son, and I feel very anxious that he
shall be cleared before the public,
and that tho guilty one be brought to
justice." i ' r
,"It is needless for me to say," Dick re
plied calmly, "that I am intensely desir
ous of bringing my uncle's murderer to
justice, and of righting any false impres
sions as to anybody's guilt, but at pres
ent I have no plan in 'mind. I heard
the testimony at the coroner's inquest
this morning, but I have not had time
to consider it. If you wish to make n
move in any direction, go ahead and I
will support you. I think it would
hardly seem proper for me to be chief in
the investigation, just now. I think it
would be well to have the will probated,
so that your action may -be correctly
"You aro right, there," Mr, Seymour
answered, "I bad thought of employing
a detective to go to work on the case
immediately. Every minute that passes
unimproved lessens the chances of catch
ing the criminal."
"That is true," said Dick.
"Then acting on your suggestion and
partly In your behalf, I shall take the
will to court and employ a .detective,"
said Mr. Seymour with a rising inflec
tion. Dick assented. tnu
"Well, I willaeo you agtia when we
can talk longer," the 'caslier added,
when Dlck'roae to go, "and W the mean
time I Bhall prosecute tho caso as vigor
ously as possible."
The procession which followed Rich
ard Y. Fessenden's remains" to their final
resting place, was a large one, though
the peculiarity of his death may have
caused It, more than respect for his. life.
Some people expressed sympathy for
Dick in his unnatural beroavcment.while
others, with moro blunt sensibilities,
congratulated htm upon falling heir to
so handsome a fortune There always aro
people who think the chief end of man
is his bank account.
Detectivo Moore entered upon the in
vestigation of the murder with few clues
that he might follow with certainty.
He had the impression of the gash in the
back of the head, but ho had ' not the
weapon which producod it. He had al
so tho ball which had penetrated the lung
and lodged in. the heart, but it was a
long way froth' that to the hand which
fired the shot. The detective spent
much of his time studying the circum
stance, at the rickety writing-desk in Mr.
Fessenden's bed-room. Ho hal engag
ed boarding near by, in order to study
tho habits of tho neighbors. No an
nouncements wero made and the public
grew Impatient. Tho only person with
whom Mr. Moore conversed at any
length was' Mr. Seymour. Day after day
the novtspapers were filled with floating
rumors, and what appeared one day was
contradicted the next. Yet the columns
wore eagerly perused to see what devel
opments had been made. Everybody
was exasperated by the dilatory detec
tive, but nothing could bo done but to
Some held one theory about the mur
der, somo another. A large number ac
cused Peter Crowley, some suspected
Fred Seymour, a fewbolieved Dick Fes
senden was implicated, and a very few
thought tho old man had committed
suicide. Still Mr. Moore remained silent
and consulted Mr. Seymour, and a wag
gish' punster remarked that if Moore
could seo a littlo moro ho would not
need to see Mr. Seym our so much. The
detective satisfied himself of Peter
Crowley's innocence by personally ex
amining the simple-minded gardener.
Then ho thought it possible that the
man had committed, suicide, but the
bold robbery instantly drove away that
viejv of the case. Once his suspicions
rested on Jemima, but so horrible a mur
der could hardly be carried out by a
woman, especially an unobtrusive one
like the housekeeper. Her'duties about
the house, which had been consigned to
her by Dick, sometimes brought her in
to contact with the taciturn t detectivo.
From her he learned something of the
ill-feelincr that existed between her em-
Iployer and his nephew. Mr. Moore al
most aespairea or mining me murderer.
He pondered over the case day after
day, but he finally arrived at a conclu
sion, when a week had passed. He
made Mr. Seymour acquainted with his
plans, and the banker was convinced of
their correctness. It was a desperate
course the detective determined to fol
low, but it might accomplish something,
and it would prove or disprove his sus
picions. Mr. Moore confidentially told
a few of the talkative neighbors what
he thought of tho case, feeling sure that
the news would magnify and spread and
get into the. newspapers, where he de
sired it to go. True to his expectations,
the papers of the next morning came
out with flashing headlines, announcing
that the murder was no longer a mystery.
Richard Y. Fessenden had been mur
dered by his nephew. The article went
on to recite the facts, laying due stress
on Dick's quarrels with his uncle, and
his refusing to take any part 'in the in
vestigation, when Mr. Seymour request
ed him to. It also stated that Dick had
been vainly trying to borrow money,
and had taken this method to secure the
contents of his uncle's box. The article
did not leave a deep impression on those
who read it, and lynching was not im
minent. The only difference between
this and the falsa reports that preceded
it, was that it purported to come "direct
from Detective Moore."
A circumstance which seemed to lend
credence to the report, was that Dick
Fessenden could not bo seen on the
street. He was not in his office and
could not be found. That was what the
detective had expected. If the accused
fled, it would prove his guilt, and he had
prepared to intercept his flight, so ho
felt secure. Those who had believed
Dick to be the murderer were triumph
ant, and even the most incredulous
could not be sure of his innocence.
Mr. Fisher read the newspaper article
before breakfast, and a family consulta
tion lasted 'two hours. Sympathy tor
the bereit nephew of the murdered
banker had flowed freely, but with this
critical tum in the case, doubts arose in
the minds of Mr. and Mrs. Fisher.
There were no doubts in Florence's
mind, and a brigade of detectives could
not have convinced her of Dick's guilt.
Mrs. Fisher was the motor of ideas in
the home circle, and she thought
Florence had better discontinue Dick's
attentions until he had gotten out of
this embarassing situation. Mr. Fisher
sided with his wife. He regretted that
Dick had been thrown in such a dilem
ma, but he thought Florence should
wait till Dick hod extricated himself.
Florence could furnish no reason but
her unwillingness, and that was doubly
sufficient for ner. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher
insisted, and Florence at last cried till her
eyes swelled. But her prudent parents
did not desist. Florence admitted that it
might be wiser to let Dick explain his
innocenco publicly, before expressing
her confidence in him, but that did not
convince her of her' duty. The older
heads conquered, however, and Florence
took her pen to write she hardly knew
what. One sheet was blotted by a great
big tear, and when she had begun on
another one, she shielded it with her
handkerchief. Florence was a girl who
cared nothing for society customs, and
time-honored usages were heeded but
little 1 When they connicteu witn con
venience or common sense. Sho could
not om why it would not bo as prudent
to wait till she heard Dick's story, be
fore enforcing the harsh edict of her
The boy who carried tho note to Dick's
office returned, saying that Dick was
not there, and that ho had pushed the
envelopo under the door. Oh how
Florence wished the boy had brought
the letter back with him I But could it
bo possible that Dick had run away ?
Dick had no notion of emigrating to
Canada. He had gone to bed ith an
aching head tho night before, and slept
late that morning. When ho started to
his office he noticed that passcrsby star
ed at him, and he wondered why.
Turning a corner ho hoard a familiar
voice and hulted.
" 'Nquire, C'mercial CTzette all about
th' Fess'nd'n murder."
Didk was greeted by a vision of a
newsboy in a short-sleeved coat.
"Hoy there, Buckles !"
Buckles turned and camo back, grin
"I want a paper," Dick said, extend
ing a coin. The boy evidently expected
a recognition from his kind friend, but
Dick had caught sight of the sensational
headlines. He went to his office, where
he read the chain of evidence, which
connected him with his uncle's murder.
At a time when excitement was at fever
heat, he was not surprised that such a
report should find its way into the news
papers, but it chagrined him to see that
the statement originated with Detective
Moore. When Dick was about to lay
the paper aside, he caught sight of the
tinted envelope under the door. Truly,
Dick was receiving tho slings and arrows
of outrageous fortune. But the latter
missile made a deeper wound than the
newspaper's false report.
"Ficklo flirt," Dick muttered, as he
tossed the letter from him. "A fellow
might scrapo the sea of society with an
oyster-dredge and catch nothing but
barnacles." Having relieved himself of
this uncouth figure, Dick closed tho
door with a bang and started off to see
tho doughty detective. Within a square
of his uncle's, lato residence, Dick met
Jemima, wiping her eyes with her apron,
and crying bitterly. Sho recognized
Dick before they met and stopped, and
when Dick came up sho gave him the
key to tho night-lock.
"Why, Jemima," Dick exclaimed,
"what's tho matter?"
"Oh, that awful man," Jemima re
"What man?" Dick queried.
"Mr. Mooro. I just como from there,"
said sho, pointing back. "And he say s
you killed your uncle, and you didn't,
did you Dick ?" Jemima fixed her grey
eyes on Dick and tho tears streamed
down her cheeks.
"Why, certainly I didn't," Dick an
swered, stupidly. Ho hardlyknew what
to say to her. "But you mush't worry,
Jemima, I'm going to see him."
"Oh, are you though ?" said Jemima,
"Yes, Jemima. Now, don't worry
Dick nodded a "good-day" and passed
on. Tho detecth e had told Jemima that
no believed Di'.-k was guilty, and she.
surprised that so terrible a charge should
be made against her faithful friend, at
once refuted it. The detectivo argued
and Jemima contradicted, and when Mr.
Moore furnishod the proofs for his be
lief, Jemima, unable to prove Dick's in
nocence, burst into tears.
Dick closed tho front gate when ho
had gone in, and as the latch clicked
behind him, a mun opened the front
door, came out on the step and closed
the door behind him, and Dick and De
tective Mooro stood facing each other,
at opposite ends of the stone walk.

Kditoi: News-Heralt As your cor
respondent from this place has not sent
in any nows lately, with your permission
I will try to tell the readers of your
paper something of what I saw and
learned whilo in Dayton, O., recently.
As all know, Daytonis a beautiful and
wealthy city, situated on both sides of
tho Big Miami River, in Montgomery
county. It is well supplied with rail
roads and has a large trade and immense

Dayton claims a population of 50,000,
but an editor of ono of its papers told
me there were 00,000 people in the city
and I suppose it must be tho truth for
you know an editor knows cyery thing
and could not lie.
Everything about tho city seems to
bo thriving at tho present time ; streets
aro being extended and improved,
bridges being built, and there aro now
about GOO houses under construction
within tho citv limits. That part of the
city west of tho Miami and south of
Wolf Creek, is called Miami City, and
that on the samo sido of tho river but
north of tho creek, is called Dayton
View, and I think is destined to bo the
finest part of the city ere long. Dayton
proper, is on tho east bank of tho river.
The V. B. Theological Seminary is
situated in Miami City, and is becoming
more and more an attraction and power
in that locality. This institution was
founded in 18G9, Rev. John Kemp,
father of Senator Kemp, having donated
the grounds, valued at 510,000. It has
been very fortunato for a young institu
tion and since its opening in 1871, has
sent out into tho work of the ministry
nearly 100 graduates, who aro now occu
pying pastorates in many States and tcr
ritoiics of tho Union. This has been
ono of tho most prosperous years of its
history. Tito fifteenth annual com
mencement exercises opened on last
Sabbath, in tho Summit street IT. B.
Church, under the most favorable cir
cumstances, and nino graduates lcceiv
ed their diplomas Monday night.
I had the pleasure of attending the
dedication of a very fine new Methodist
Church, also in Miami City, on last Sab
bath. This church began its existence
in 1822, with only eight members, who
built a small brick house on Broadway,
where tho now one now stands. From
that time to the present, regular services
have been maintained in the church.
The first pastor of tho church was Rev.
Geo. Reed. It has since been served by
a number of devoted ministers but its
growth was slow until tho present pastor,
Rev. S. W. Clayton, formerly of Hills
boro, I belieye, took charge of it about
two years ago. Since that timo there
has been about COO additions to tho
membership and it is now one of the
largest and most active churches of the
Of course I was at tho Soldiers Home,
near Dayton, and saw it in all its spring
glory, but to tell much about it I am not
able to do. I was there May Day which
was also muster day and I saw 3,300
men all in new uniform, drawn up in
line on the green, which was a very im
posing sight, so I thought at least.
There are now at thcHome 4,122 men
and 1,072 absent, in all, 5,194. Of the
4,122 men in camp 433 are in the hos
pital and about that many more are in
the blind and convalescent barracks or
excused by surgeons, leaving tho 3,300
men who woro assembled on muster
day. The authorities have lately been
making some changes in tho water sup
ply for the Home. The supply is now
drawn from tho lake, about 200,000 gal
lons being pumped out every tw enty
four hours. Tho lake is fed by springs
and is now lower than ever known since
its construction. In anticipation of pos
sible contingencies and to render cer
tain for the futuro a constant and inex
haustible supply, a system f eight
wells has been constructed on an acre
of land.purchased by tho Homo, about
two miles distant, and connected by
pipes to the stand-pipe at tho Home.
These pipes will furnish 800 gallons of
pure water per minute and tho supply is

In Memory of Melissa Carey.
Melissa Carey was born November 15th, 184C,
and died, May Sth, 1836. She was born In War
ren county, Ohio. Four years after her birth
her father, William Henry, died, after which
she moved with her mother northeast of New
Vienna, where she was raised to womanhood.
On the first day of September, 1870, she united
in marriago wlth.Thom&s Carey, who survives
her. She lived a kind and devoted life to her
husband, and family and to all that knew her.
She was tho mother of eight children, all liv
ing. How they will miss the council of a kind
and loving mother. Sho took great pains in
training her children, sho was kind and
gentle to them and to all sho mingled with.
She Joined tho Friends Church about tneho
years ago, from which time Bhe has lived a true
Christian life. Her every day walk proves to
the world and speaks plainer than words that
Bhe was a child of the King and Is now bask
ing In the sunlight of glory. Her memory is
enshrinod In the hearts that loved her and her
irtues will be cherished and imitated while
life endures by those who have been Inlluenced
by her example. This much, it will bo proper
for me to say. even a stranger could recog
nize In ber a gentle spirit and an amiable, af
fectionate disposition. Sho united those noblo
qualities which constitute a sincere friend, a
kind and loving eidter and a fond and dovotcd
wife and mother. By her womanly virtues,
upright life and self sacrificing devotion, sho
endeared to herself, with bands that are Btrong
er than steel, tho hearts of brothers, sisters,
husband and friends. She lived not for her
self, nor for the world, but to mako thoso
about her happy. Her sunny countenance,
cheerful words and happy spirit, kindled tho
light of day and comfort wherevor she moved.
Living as she did, for others, she won a multi
tude of friends, who hod been made better and
happier by her life and will ever cherish sweet
memories of her, as one of Heaven's angels of
love. On tho 6th day of May, 1886, at flvo
o'clock, her body ceased to live, but tho spirit,
clothed with immortality and crowned with
glory, was convoked to the realms of light and
dnells In endless bliss. J, D.

A Pleasant Surprise.
About seventy-five of the friends and rela
tives of Mrs. S. A. Noland gave her a pleasant
surprise the 6th inst, tho occasion being her
sixty-seventh birthday. In the morning the
old lady went to pay her neighbor, Mrs. Gil
bert, a visit and about 10 a. m. tho friends be
gan to come in and by 11 o'clock they were all
convened and a runner was sent to tell her that
Uncle George Gilmoro and daughter had come
to pay her a visit and her presence was re
quired at home. When she come to tho top of
the hill and saw the wagons and buggies and
the yard full of people she says, "Ah Billy, I
understand. I am sixty-seven years eld to-Uay
and they have surprised me," and she entered
our presence with the kindly old face beaming
with smiles and the tears of Joy slowly trick
ling down her aged face. The tables wero
spread and fairly groaned under the weight of
good things which the good ladles of the neigh
borhood know so well how to prepare and wo
were th6n called to surround the tables, and
after a blessing was invoked by Bev. Long, we
fell to work and tho way the chicken, ham, pies
and cakes did disappear was surprising, and
such cakes, oh my! all were hard to beat but
that of Mrs. Easter could not be snrnassed.
After all had eaten almost to bursting tho
tables were cleared and after singing that good
old hymn "Nearer my God to Thee." Rev. J, A.
Long entertained us with a pleasing address,
being followed by George Gilmore, Henry Mll
er and T. A. Mullenix. The old lady selected
Mr. Mart Williamson to return thanks to tho
good people for the kindness shown to her,
which be did in a neat little speech ending
with the hope that we might all so live that wo
might be permitted to surround that table
from which, if we cat we shall never hunger,
and drink of that fountain from which we
Bhall never thirst. The hymn entitled, "One by
One" was then sung by Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert,
during which the old lady passed around, giv
ing to each one present a friendly band-shako
and wishing them God speed, after which we
separated, wishing the old couple many more
happy birthdays and feeling that tho day had
been one of pleasantness and profit.
