—Tho watches stolen from the Palace
Hotel last week were found Wednesday
by Frank Taylor in the rubbish and
wood in rear of Reed & Prentis' ware
house. Taylor was loading his dray
with wood, and in doing so happened to
uncover a silver watch in the chips that
lay about the wood-pile. This led to
further search in the vicinity, resulting
in his recovering all four of tho stolen
time-pieces and a pocket-book from the
spot where they had evidently been has
tily secreted by the thief. The proper
ty was restored to the owners (the Mc-
Connell '-boys" and Julius Christian
son), but tho robber is still at largo.

be publicly paid in this city next Tues
day afternoon. Barney Hattrup pinned

that Harrison would not be elected pres
ident. Having lost, Barney will carry
out the program, and will wheel Ren
frew the length of Main-st. and back in
a new barrow on tho day mentioned.
Tho vehicle (which is included in the
wager) will be appropriately decorated,
and Renfrew will wear tho new hat and
carry the $20 bill as a banner. You
should bo on hand to ccc tho phun.
Lost: A fine Mexican parrot, a good
talker. Finder liberally rewarded on
leaving information of its whereabouts
at this office.
Anotiieu Suicide.— Following close
ly upon tho recent murder and suicide
at Colfas came the surprising intell
igence Wednesday that Win. McCloud
had ended his earthly existence with his
own hands early that morning. Tho
deceased was) living temporarily on the
well-known Bryant place, five miles west
of Pullman, with his family, and on the
morning mentioned arose at about five
o'clock and started the kitchen fire, as
was his custom. He then left tho houso,
though but partially dressed, remarking
that he wouldn't bo gone long; but, as
the time passed on and brought no sign
of his return, Mrs. McCloud became un
easy and began a search about the prem
ises. Her husband was in poor health
and snbject to spells of vomiting, con
sequent upon chronic dyspepsia, and she
feared that, as was sometimes the case,
he might have fainted during one of
these attacks. Not finding him in tho
immediate vicinity, the search was ex
tended to an old storage barn about one
mile from the house, and there tho fam
ily were horror-stricken by the discov
ery of the lifeless body of tho missing
man suspended by the neck from one of
tho overhead beams. The neighbors
were immediately notified nnd hastened
to tho spot. Investigation showed that
McCloud had walked to the barn in hia
stocking-feet, picked up and knotted to
gether several pieces of old lace-leather,
such as is used in belting, had fastened
ono end of this cord to the beam and the
other end around his neck. To reach
tho beam he had been obliged to mount
upon the feed-tablo of a separator stored
in the barn, and having thus adjusted
; matters to his satisfaction, he deliberate
ly stepped off the table and hung sus
pended by the neck. Tho leather, how
ever, broke with the weight and ho fell
to tho ground. He then secured some
pieces of strong sacking twine and with
these and tho leather succeeded in mak
ing a cord sufficiently strong to bear the
strain. This time his step from the
feed-tablo was a step into eternity, sure
enough. The nock waß not broken by
the fall—death had resulted from strang
ulation. The body was left as found
until the arrival of Justice Lobaugh, of
this city, when it was taken down aud
an inquest held. The jury (Messrs. T.
L. Hunt, B. Lanning, John Squires, E.
and M. Bryant and Jno. Morrison) made
a careful investigation, but no light was
thrown upon tho cause of the 6uicide,
unless it could bo attributed to tho de
ccaped's bad health. There had been
nothing observed in his actions to indi
cate such an ending. Mr. McCloud
came hero last spring from Canada, nnd
had recently built a raakteaoe on Grand
street, into which ho was intending to
move the present week. Tho shock to
his family and acquaintances caused by
this sudden and unexpected event can
be better imagined than described. The
funeral services were held Thursday.
Disastrous Collision-—Tho morning
freight on the Farmington branch of tho
(). Iv. & X. broke in two as it was ile
eeending [the long hill at Colfax yester
day at about 5 o'clock, and owing to the
fact that there were no air-brakes or
brakemen on the cars that staid by the
engine, the engineer WbM unable to con
trol his speed. The heavy frost also made
itimpossible to use tho locomotive brakes
successfully, and tho big engine entered
the yard at a rapid gait, striking tho
rear end of the Pullman train that was
just about to leave, telescoping into the
baggr.ge-car fully two-thirds of its
length mill throwing the passenger
coach into the ditch. Luckily there
were but very few persons on board the
Pullman train, yet the damage was con
siderable. Tho fireman of the freight,
whoso name wo did not learn, suffered a
severe fracture of the skull, and at this
writing there is little hope of his re
covery. The engineer saved himself by
jumping. Prof. M. A. Nelms, of the
Pullman school, and his wife, were also
injured, the lady so seriously that it is
feared she will die. Conductor Barnes,
of tho Pullman train, had his knee-cap
