Mr. Colo was born on the 23rd day of
April, 1830, and consequently was past
fifty-seyen years of age. He was married
twice. His first wife, a Miss Cracraft,
died some years ago. His last wife, a
Mies Mulligan, survives him. He leaves
a largo family of children.
The deceased deserves more than a
passing notice. At one time ho was
among tho richest farmers in Nosm
County. That was somo ton or twelve
j ears ago. At tho date referred to he
engaged in grain speculations and made
about $1)0,000 in a very short time.
His family and friends tried to per
suado him to give up the business
then and retire with the money he had
made, but like many others he wanted to
make a little more. He promised, how
ever, to quit as soon as he increased his
profits to $100,000. That was his aim,
but he never accomplished it. On the
contrary, luck turned against him. He
began to lose, and it was not long until
the $00,000 he had nude was all gone.
Ho still attempted to retrire his fortunes
but he never succeeded. Fortuno refused
to smile upon him and what little he had
left was soon gone. He left but littlo if
any property to his children.
Milt Barlow's Newspaper Experience
Milt Barlow, the well-known negro
minstrel, is still in jail at New York for
contempt of court in refusing to pay the
alimony awarded to his wife in her suc
cessful suit for divorce. In a recent in
terview he said: "Confinement has not

doubt I shall see more of it before I die.
I started out on the business of life as n
type-setter. At one time in my early
career I went to work on a small paper
for a man in Kentucky. I suggested to
him that it would be necessary to have
an imposing stone. The next morning
when I arrived at the office the stone
was in position, but my suspicions were
aroused by some red clay clinging to one
corner of the atone. Crawling under the
stone and lying upon my back I looked
up and saw these words: 'Sacred to the
memory of Michael Jones, who died
April 8, 1854, aged 67 yeais. Requiescat
in pace.' Ho had taken his father's
gravestone from the church yard and

An Enquirer special from Philadelphia
says: " Dr. Formad, the Coroner's phy
sician, Sunday held a post-mortem exam

traces of poison were fonnd by the phy

the deadly drug was taken with suicidal
intent or not, for after the man was ad

felt aick and had gone into a drag store
and asked for medicino to relieve

A Gifted Son of This City Who Has
Gained a National Reputation
as a Dramatist and Artist.
A recent issne of tho Cincinnati Timss
Starsays: "Kentucky has always been
famous for its many brilliant sons. One of
that sifted galaxy, though to the manner
born, htis adopted Cincinnati as his home.
Montgomery Phister is a yonnc man, in
fact, has hardly shed tho down of his
youth, yet he has a National reputution
as a vigorous dramatic writor, dramatist,
artist and tionveraationalist, and is better
known in the larger cities of the country,
where these qualities are prised, than
even in Cincinnati, for 'a prophet is
wlthoat honor in his own country.' For
years he was tho dramatic critic of the
old Gazette, and after its consolidation
with the Commercial ho went in on the
new deal as dramatic editor. But he
did not confine himself to the drama. A
clever artist, both by nature and training,
he shortly after mado the pages of tho
Commercial Gazette blossom with some
of tho cleverest political cartoons. Still
following out the best of his genius, he
has contributed many of the most ex
quisito literary creations, full of delicacy
and honest sentiment, which have travel
ed the rounds of the prees.
" He has an inventive mind and is con
stantly adding somo new and'valuablo
discovery to his stock of art knowlodgo
and his studio and study are perfect lit
tle museums within them reives. A few
seasons ago he gave to the stage that
inimitably funny creation, A Soap
Bubble.' At present he is engaged in
writing another comedy that competent
judges claim is the best production of his

ruled that "an indictment under tho

an indictment which follows the htnunge
