to whom this sudden loss cornea with
heart-cruBhing effect. Mrs. John Duley,
Miss Mollie Edmonds and his wife, the

family. No young man in our pity was
of a purer, stronger virtue than he ; hon
orable to the utmost degree, sober, thrifty
and careful, Mr. Edmonds had walked
among us until his friends, are numbered
from among thq business and professional
men and Becret societies of our city.
Six weeks ago he was married to Miss
Bertha Wright, of New Vienna, O., and
he had established her in a beautiful
borne on Second street, Sixth ward,
where love and all the comforts of life
surrounded them, the couple starting on
life's ocean with every prospect of a long
and happy voyage. Ten days ago he
was vaccinated and last Wednesday he
fell ill. His condition was favorable un
til Monday afternoon when through im
paired circulation and a lack of physical
force he succumbed easily and as a child
who falls asleep.
Sad indeed.aro the circumstances, moBt
heart rendering are the environments,
and there are no words which can hbbu
age the terribe grief. which has befallen
the etricken family and community.

BANKS AND WAREHOUSES.
The Grand Jury at Frankfort Told to
Frankfort, Ky., April 7. In his in

afternoon Judge Cantrell told them
to investigate the Issual of fraudulent
warehouse receipts and also ascertain
if any of tho hanks had loaned monoy
or given credit to any ono man in an
amount beyond tho limit prescribed
by law. This part of his Instruction
was construed to relate particularly
to L. B. Weisenberg, who disappeared
somo weeks ago leaving the banks In
tho hole with a large number of worth
less warehouse receipts. It is believ
ed, however, that none of the banks
went beyond the law limit in their
loans to Weisenberg.
