A touching fcaturo of the runaway

sion that her sister had been killed. The
other little girl, violently thrown from

take her to her llttloelstor. Sho did not,
apparently, bestow a thought on herself.

We viewed tho matter by "those burn

ccd. The proposition was voted on sep
arately and received a largo majority of
tho vote thrown. This, wo understand,
meets the requirements oftho law under
which tho election was held.
Counting Perry county as good for
$o0,000, the capital stock oftho company
now amounts to about $l,C00,O00.
