Thfi Murder Epidemic.
Another Man MllleU lit Tbli County.
Lust Saturday afternoon another of
those horrible scenos, tha violent taking
of human lilc, was enaoted in this county,
a short distonco from Troy. A tuuu
named John II. Kearns, who was in
tho employ of Mr. VauNesn, bridgo and
'tie contractor on tho St. Lorn and Koo
&uk railroad, loft Troy for tho works in
'toxicated ; nbout two miles from town ho
ruat'Juhn Younj;, and carolessly asked
"him if ho "had any fish for sale,"
when Young replied, "Not to such a d d
Tool ns you." Kcarns said he wouldn't
rtako that, and dismounting from his
horse approachod and struck Young,
"when the latter plunged his pocket-knife
'into Kcarns, making a fatal gash near the
region of the heart, from which death en
sued in a few minutes. Young was ar
rested, mid is undergoing an examination
hefure Justices David Shcltoo and W. T.
Harris, at the court houso in thi place.
This is tho fifth caso of murder or homi
cide that has occurred in Lincoln county
within tho short period of ona year, and
iu only onco caba has tho murderer been
convicted by tho law, and then only sen
tenced to a short term of two years in the
penitentiary. Tho result of this is,
human life is becoming more and more
insecure, and unless the law is more rig
idly enforced in such cases, it will soon
be that every man will havo to carry his
life in his own hands and a revolver in
his pocket. The killing of a fellow beiug
is justifiod only in cases of self defense,
but in this day the law is evaded by tech
nicalities, pleas of insanity, self defense
when tho life of the murderer was notcn
dangored,und the crinio has becomeso pop
ular that it is beginning to bo considered
brave and luudable to murder a man. Not
only is this tho case iu Lincoln county, but
it is so all ovor the country. Only tho
other day, iu St. Louis, a man named J.
II. Fore, who assassinated his brother-in-law
in cold blood in that city about a year
ago, was ucquitod on the plea of insan
ity. 1'audemonium is full of such insan
ity. If we have laws let them be re
spected ; if not, publish the fact, so that
men may prepare to protect themselves
Ki.kction for fccuooL Trustees.
The election I'urtchool trustees of this sub
district, last Saturday, resulted in the
election of Messrs. L. J. Garrett, John
.McDonald, and James M, McLcllun.
There wero ono hundred and twenty-six
votes polled, tho largest ever cast under
tho present law for school trustees in this
place. Of these, Mr. McDonald received
111), Mr. Garrett 94, Mr. McLellan 77,
Mr. V. SI. Harlan 01 ; boattering 17. A
proposition was also submitted to extend
the time of holding publio school four
months, muking tho term ten instead of
six months. It was this question that
called out so many voters, many boing
unwilling to increase their taxes to defray
the expenses of tho additional four
months. On this question tho vote was
as follows : For 10 months school, 07 ;
againstlO months school, 53. So hercaftor
the term will bo tour months longer than
heretofore. The proposition in regard to
tho purchaeo of (Jhristiau Instituto for
tho purposo of establishing a public
graded school was not voted on, tho trus
tees of that institution concluding to
Does It Pay? When mankiud em

apt to bo uppermost in tho mind is,
W ill it pay ? Wo publish in the Herald
this week a new advertisement of Messrs.

Sinco the formation of their copartner
ship, they havo boon liberal udvertiscrs,
their bill with this office alone boing
something ovor 885 for tho past year. It
must puy them, elso they would not por
biot in laying out this amount to advertise
their goods, and wo aro coufidont it does
pay them ; for thoir trado is increasing
.daily, and last weok their cash sales for
tho six days ending Saturday amounted
to over S70 a day, together with largo
.sales on timo. Wo venturo tho usscrtion
that there is not another business houso
in the town that can couut up as muoh
tor oo week. This success we aro freo
.to admit is partly duo tho cleverness and
general popularity of tho gentlemen
-composing tho firm, their satisfactory
work and low prices, but wo know thoy
will alio freely admit that it is partly
.duo thoir judicious system of advertis

first year of iu existence, tho most criti
cal period generally in tho establishment
of a newspapor. In that timo, although
wo huvs sparred to some extent with eaoh
other through our columns, to the unini
itiated opparently with bitter feeling, we
havo maintained friendly personal rela

lives of publishers. The Dispatch says
it will enter upon its second year with
much brighter prospects than illumined
tho first, and with an experienco that will
add to its intorest; and its editor truth-
fully acknowledges that he, in the outset.
"had not tho remotest idea of the labor
and responsibility of tho position." It
may seem an easy matter to edit and con
trol a nowspapor, especially a small county
sheet, but whoever undertakes it will
find, like our neighbor, that tho rospon
sibility and labor Is greater than they over
dreamed it was. If this fact wero mora
generally known, tlro would bo less
li.ult finding when any number of a paper
does not coiiie up to tho expectations of
its patrons. But with all this, thcro is a
fascination about tho lifo of an editor
that leads him on, and on, and causes him
to rack his braiu through years of oven
unrequited toil. The panorama of the
world's doings that is daily passing before
him, iu tho hugo pi lo of exchanges that

attention, nod ho becomes such a devoted
admiror of the over changing lights and
bhudes, that it would be like parting with

f'uro him. But it is a laborious lifo ucv-
urthless, and the reputed fashioners of

aro forming all over tho country, the
