in building the Normal University. Up to
this time the city has paid over $100000
principal and interest of these bonds, and
still owes about f55,000. Carbondale did
not repudiate her bonds, nor any portion of
them. The interest on the bonded debt
has always been paid promptly. The bonda
readily sell at from ? to 5 per cent, prem

years ago, and this Is slowly but surely

In that gentleman being murdered. Mr.

perhaps, 100 feet, which separates tbem
from a couple of frame dwellings. On tbe

Norman related to a correspondent yester

"I was coming home from my place of
business on Thursday evening at my usual
hour, and bad reached these
vacant lots, about 12' feet from my
own house, at 7:10 o'clock when suddenly
a man who had been crouching behind a
tree at tbe edge of tbe sidewalk sprang out
and confronted me. He had a revolver In
each hand, and pointing them towards me
be cried, 'Throw up your bands. ' My first
thought was that some of tny friends were
attempting to play a Joke on me, and I
didn't obey the command. A 111 is t im
mediately the man cried again, 'Throw up
your hands,' and as I was withdrawing my
right hand from the pocket of my overcoat
he tired. The pistol was so near my per
son that my overcoat is singed with pow"
der. The bullet went through the cout on
tbe left sldo Just above the waist, and pas
sing through my Inner coat, walscoat and
underclothing, slightly grazed my skin on
the right side of my body. It then passed
through a bundle of

other clothing which had boon perforated
by the ball in Its passage. In reply to a
question as to the nature of the wound up
on his person, be said he bad received
quite a severe bruise and the skin was
slightly abraldcd. Tbe assailant, ho said,
was apparently about 32 years old, about
6 foot 0 inches lu height, dressed In a Ion'.',
