STATE HAPPENINGS. '
As Gallier! From our Ex-lnjtoH ami
Numerous ("or respondent.
Much interest is being taken in the
trial of Ira Adkins at Greensburg
charged with shooting Kelly Parker, on
September 10. On Saturday the court
room was packed with citizens, includ
ing many women of Adams, to hear the
evidence. The evidence of the State
was, in substance, that the shooting
took place at the residence of Mrs
Ilazelrigg, who was en'ertaining young
people at a party. Parker call to see
Adkins, and Adkins ordered him away
calling him hard names and saying he
would put a hole through him Adkins
drew a revolver and fired at Parker the
ball lodging in his groin. Parker was
carried home and in a few weeks re
covered, but still carries the ball where
it lodged. Parker testified that he was
nnarmed at the time he was shot. The
defense is making a hard fight and
claiming that Adkins did the shooting
in self-defense; that Parker put his
hand to his pocket, and that Adkins
had every reason to believe that he car
ried a revolver and was going to shoot.
The defense has introduced a large
number of witnesses to break down the
character of Parker. Both are promi
ment young men of Adams and well
connected. Parker is a son of I)r
Parker, of Adams, and since he recover
ed from the wound he has been attend
ing the Cincinnati Medical College.
Mrs. Suson Etcherson, of (Jreencastle
committed suicide yesterday morning
at the residence of her son, Daniel
Etcherson, nine miles north of that city.
Deceased was sixty-one years old and
been an inmate of the Central Insane
Hospital for a number of years, going
home during periods of better health.
She s'iot herself in an outhouse with a
thirty-eight-caliber revolver, holding it
directly over her heart.

A Glow-Worm Cavern.
The greatest wonder of the antipodes
Is the celebrated glow-worm cavern,
discovered in 1S91 in the heart of the
Tasmanian wilderness. The cavern or
caverns (there appears to he a series of
such caverns in the vicinity, each sep
arate and distinct), are situated near
the town of Southport, Tasmania, in a
limestone hluff, about four miles fro?::
Iday bay. The appearance of t!. nain
cavern is that of an underground rives,
the entire floor of the subterranean pas
sage being covered with water about a
foot and a half in depth. These won
derful Tasmanian caves are similar to
all caverns found in limestone forma
tion, with the exception that their roof:?
and sides literally shine with the light
emitted by the millions of glow-worms
which inhabit them.
Mrs. Luhm, an Oshkosh woman, had
arranged to have an addition built to
her barn, but a neighbor threatened to
enjoin her from building. She was equal
to the occasion. During the night sh
hired twenty carpenters, and, with the
&ld of an electric light, the building
was erected before daylight.

Mr. Sherard adds that his father
used to tell him that when he was a
boy he once met Tennyson at a dinner
party and that he was very frightened
at his appearance. "Tennyson was at
that time very sallow almost yellow
and had long, black hair. At desert the
poet bent across the table and ad
dressed my father, in front of whom he
placed dish of fruit and said: 'Evolve
me an uppl.' 'I did not know what n-
anted me to do,' said my father."
