it was bsforr-TItr1rHI,-" say they,

. hnreas we tan send it by express In the
United States for 80 cents and to a great
many points for 25 cents. Such high ra ten
are out of all proposition to tbe rates on

The Hmpetrt Murder Trial.
Jkfferson C'llY, Mo., Dec. 13. All
tbe evidence in the Unmpstreet inurdei
case was completed this morning and the
arguments begun. A verdict of murder in
the first degree is not expected, and even
an acquittal will not . be very mi prising.
The murder was cowardly, but It seems
impossible to get at tbe facts in tbe case.
One of tbe persons concerned in the mur
der turned state's evidence on the defend
ant in th!ss trial, John Oiemalnhardt, lint
his evidence lacked confirmation In some
respects. The case will likely be submitted
to the Jury to-nigbt.

that it look a sliKhtly downward course of
six Inches, directly through the reasoning
faculties. The young man's pulse wss at
fort v -eight beats to the minute. We
probed tor the bullet, going three Inches
Into tbe brain and finding tbe passage mads
by the ball
LEADING still further in.
Then we agreed lo leave further probing
till the next day, and put tbe young mat
on strict antiphlloglstio treatment to allay
the Inflammation which we expected. We
did not antioipate his recovery, bnt confi
dently expected bis death within twenty
four hours, and gave his family no bope.
His pulse rallied before evening, rising at
filly-five, and very little Inflammation set
in. These were favorable symptoms, but
we did not deeu that there
was the least chanoe of bit
surviving. Next day we probed
aain, going five Inches Into the brain and
locating the bullet an Inob further in. We
Judged that It wodld only hasten death to
rem ve It, and concluded to let it stay
there. Although we bad no bopes ot tbe
young mau's recovery we persisted In our
treatment, tbe patient's father and mother
doing tlie nursing, He, unexpectedly to
us, gained every day, till at tbe end of two
weeks be wss comparatively
OUT OF DANGER.
He is fully recovered and has gone back to
work In as sound health, mind and spirits
at he ever enjoyed, apparently.
