CmCAGO, Dec. 13.-The Italian colon'
was thrown into a state of great ex
citement when it was reported that
Charles Paladini, one of the oldest and
most highly respected residents in that
part of the city, was murdered while ou
a business trip in Alalbama.
The remains of Paladini arrived in
Chicago over the Burlington road and
when examined later by an undertaker
they were found to be in such a condi
tion that the police were notified and
the coroner will be asked to hold a post
mortem examination. The body had
been shipped from Bear. Ala., where
Paladini went with 150 of his feilow
countrymen for whom he had secured
positions as section hands on a new
The body. according to the under
taker, was bloated and terribly discol
ored and bore all evidences that death
was due to drowning. Several marks
on the neck made the undertaker con.
elude that Paladini's death was not du*3
to natural causes. He thinks the man
was first strangled and then drowned.
The police officials are of the opinion
that a murder has been committed and
the authorites at Bear. Ala., were con
municated with in an effort to learn
more about the case. "'

Water Famine Was Threatened.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Dec. 13.-The re
Dent rains have relieved the water situa
tion in this part of the state. The lack
of water was beginning to be a very se
rious consideration. Springs and wells
that had never failed had begun to gc
dry and farmers, in some instances, had
to haul water for their families' use and
for their stock many miles. Even the
artesian supply was materially affected.
The Alabama river at this .Mnt is said;
to have been lower than ever before in
its history. The recent rains, however,
are rapidly restoring the-wells and:
streams and the sand bars in the river
are already covered.

lave a peculiar right in claiming, inasmuch as our firm it was
which was the pioneer in this section to operate first with the

his and are determined by continued conscientious dealing,
end the lowest possible prices to retain our hard-earned pop
ilarity. Our store is frequently literally packed with cus
omers during the busy season, and this fact can be verified
y a visit, and certainly most emphatically sustains the cor
