And Was There An Attempt to Blow Up a
House in" the Fifth Ward?
What i8 thought to bo a bomb was
found Sunday radrninj under the house
occupied by Mrs. Ellen Cutntnings in
It is roughly constructed with leather
and heavy twine, and has a fuse at
tached. This fuse had been lighted, but
had gone out.
The thing hasn't been opened yet so
it is not known what it contains or
whether it contains anything. The local
correspondent of tho Cincinnati Post
seems to know just what is in it, how
ever, as he says " There was enough
blasting powder in the bomb to have
blown the house to atoms."
The u bomb " is about the size of a base
ball, and is in Chief of Police Ort's pos
session. Suspicion rests on a party who it is
said had been driven from the house
Mr. Chas. H. White, of tho firm of
White, Judd & Co., returned Monday
from a trip to Cincinnati. While there
he called to see his old friend and play
mate, Col. Larry Hazen, chief of tho de
tective force, whom he knew as a boy in
Cincinnati years ago. They had not seen
each other for fifty-one years, but the
great detective soon recognized Mr.
White, calling him by name. It is need
less to say tho conversation indulged
afterwards was most interesting as each
in turn recalled some of the many in
cidents of their boyhood days. The
short visit was indeed a pleasant one and
these two gentlemen will no cjoubt make
it convenient to meet oftener in the

For His Benellt Tho Kiue tirus
Some of Sammy Leever's many friends
suggest that the Maysvilles ought to play
a game for his benefit before the season
closes. Leever was taken ill with ty

to Knoxville, aud has been out of the
game ever since. He was able to return
to his home at Goshen, O., a few days
ago, but his sickness will no doubt inca
pacitate him for work for some time. A
benefit game would be the right thing,
and would undoubtedly draw a big crowd.
