to a porch with a piece ol clothes

The deed was no doubt committed
during temporary despondency, and
the story which leads up to it is a
sorrowful one. Mrs. Reid had not
been feeling well Sunday, and the
two children. Kav. aged la, and Isel
lie. aged 11, were also somewhat
under the weather. Thev had not
been feeling well during 4 he morn

CABLE IS HOME.
Ex.Congressman Ben T. '- Cable
reached home this morning after his
energetic campaign as member of
the democratic national committee,
one of the most bitter and aggressive
fights for patronage ever known, and
one which would have conquered the
seal of men of less determined dis
position than Mr. Cable. His time
has accordingly been pretty much
occupied politically, and this is the
first time lie has , been home since
Pkae With the Mammal ton.
Mr. Cable was in Chicago yester
day, and the Herald says of him: '

tion of a faithful and consistent dem
ocrat who has given much valuable
service to the party.
I am also well pleased with MrJ

Every business firm in the city was
represented with a handsome'pres-

in return many times the value of
the articles iu the original way Col
Ginger advertised them.
Lnlike ether fairs, the patrons will
not be importuned by solicitors ask
ing tnem - to take chances on these
articles, but tickets will be issued at
$1 each, which admits the purchaser
to the theatre, where the opening
performance takes place, and to the
Armory hall also during the three
days and nights of the fair, and then
the presents are given to the holders
of the tickets. The G. A. R. posts
and Relief Corns of the surrounding
cities will sell hundreds of tickets to
their citisens. thus bringing many
dollars to swell the relief fund here
