Another Pioneer Gone.
On the 2 'st inst., departed this life,
Leww Davis, of Xew Paris, aged about
SC years, lie died vciy suddenly, for
we learn that the day before his demise
he was apparently in his usual health
nnd he and his ilderly wife were n oik
ing iu their garden. Sir. Davis was
one of the oldest citizens of Jefferson
township, having settled many years
. ago on the east fork of TThite Water.
He lived and died an honest man and a
conscientious christian. In his long
life he was an independent man, tho't
and acted for himself, and and was an
unwavering and consistent democrat to
the day of his death. lie will be miss

and it will be a long time before his
place will be filled by an equally just
and honorable man. Hon. Lewis D.

The New Paris Murder.
Caldwell G. P. Austin, of 2?ew
Paris, O., who was arrested a few
days s'nee by Marshal RTAx,.charged
with murder iu the first degree, for
having killed one Lafaette 'Vilson
a colored man, at said Village about
the 11th day of Jhis month, had a pre
liminary, trial before Mayor Foos on
Saturday last. I. E. Freeman ap
peared on behalf of the Stale, and
tho defence was "ably conducted by
Gen. Gordon, of Indianapolis, assist
ed by Elaji Fishes, of this place.
The testimony showed in brief, that
"Wilson had been a tenant of Austin's,
niaFRfFaiiyi prior tolhe homicide
- had left the house, but had not yet
moved away, his goods, nor had he
paid the entire amount of rent due ;
that on the night of the 11th quite late,
in company with a colored boyjiamed
. Moore, the deceased' took a hand cart
and went to his former domicile, that
the. accused heard them going and
went to the house and forbade "Wilson
to move away his things' that night ;
. that a quarrel arose suddenly, and
that Austin drew a pistol, which he
, claims for self-defence the State
claims maliciously and with premed-
itation. During the struggle which
ensued, Wilson was fatally, shot nnd
. died next day. Austin had one pre
liminary examination before Esquire
Richet, of New Paris, and was discharged,-but
'after the Coroner's in
quest was again arrested and brought
here. Austin told a straight-forward
story accounted for the presence of
ed as night watch on the roil road;
states he saw a heavy pair of "knucks"
in possession of the deceased, the
morning before the homicide, and
that he was assaulted wi;h them at
the time he drew his pistol. Young
Moore, who was with the deceased at
the time,contradicted himself so much
as to render his testimony of little
weight. The dying declarations of
Wilson were introduced. Drs. Ferris,
BrafBt and Bruce were examined as
to the Coroner's inquest and the post
mortem examination. The defendant
in his own behalf, claims ho 'was
assailed by the deceased and acted
f trictly iu self-defence. Also, several
' of Austin's neighbors testified to the
excelleut character which he had al
ways maintained as a peaceable, law-
. abiding citizen.
It would "be manifestly improper
for a public journal to .express ' all
opinion now, as to the guilt or inno
cence of the accused, and we refrain
from doing so. The Mayor hound
Austin, over on the charge of man
slaughter, and fixed tho bail at f 1000,

This is tho season of the year when
cellars breed contagion. On account
of the, cold weather they have not
been properly ventilated. Typhoid
dwells in the pent Bp air and musty
smell. Open the cellar windows and
if tho smell is "musty," use disinfect
ants. It may save a spell of sickness
and a heavy doctor bill. Half the
spring sickness comes from improper
ly drained and ill ventilated cellars.
No house with a musty cellar is safe
or fit to live iu. Farmers as well as
dwellers in the villages should attend
to this at once.
