Michael Stumpf, aged seventy, retired soloon keeper, was found dead in his bed at Charlestown with bullet hole through his head. Miss Virginia Wolf, sixty years old, who was a frequent caller at Stumpfs home, gave the alarm and was taken In custody to await the verdict of the coroner. The woman admits call lug at the house this morning, and that Stumpf gave her $2, but says he refused to give her more. She told conflicting stories, but says the man killed himself.

Clark County Votes "Wet." Clark County last week at the polls declared In favor of the retention of licensed saloons, thus joining a tier of Ohio River Counties in Indiana which have voted "wet." The un official majority for the saloon cause, as now indicated by returns, Is 1,004. Tho townships giving "dry" major ltios are reported as follows: Charlestown, 59; Utlca, 27: Silver Creek. 40; Bethlehem, 55; Owen, 7; Wood, 35; Monroe, 101; Union, 20; Washington, 99. Those voting "wet" and the major Hies were: Jeffersonville, 1,316; Carr, 104; Oregon, 27. The city of Jeffersonville voted "wet" by a majority of 94C. It is be lieved that business interests here. since New Albany and Floyd County voted "wet," and since saloons flour ish In Louisville, at the other end of the river bridge, supported the liquor license proposition to a gene ral extent because of fear of loss of trade. There are sixty-one saloons in this city which are affected by today's voting. Elopements In Melon District. That tho girls living in the melon district, west of Owensville, are in clined to be romantic is shown by the numerous elopements in the last three months. Five pretty melon maids have figured In a like number of elopements, and according to re ports lovo-light is burning brightly for nil concerned. An elopement In tho melon district does not create much excitement any more. How ever, the parents are keeping a close eye on their sons and daughters, de spite the fact that true love is never outwitted when Cupid gets busy. Tne approaching melon season probably will result In the usual num ber of romances. The girls cannot resist the temptation to write their names and addresses In the canta loupe basket that Is in tum Bhlpped to some distant market Almost In variably the basket falls into the hands of a young man, and a letter to tho melon maid naturally follows. 'ihe correspondence usually results In the marriage of the principals. Must Label Bleached Flour.

Hour bleached by oxides of nitrogen Is out side tne pure food regulations, and taking this ruling ns a basis the State Board of Health has ruled that such flour must not bo sold except whon labeled "bleached flour." PARIS FASHION HINTS. Business on tho Big Wheel wns rather slack that afternoon, and she sat in solitary dignity in her saloon compartment until, just as tho olllclal was about to close tho door, a young nmn darted in. He was good-looking and well-dressed, but when sho saw him sho started up and rushed to ward tho door. "Lot me out I've changed my mind, she cried, but tho man out sldo shook his head. "Very sorry, Miss, but it can't bo done. You must wait till tho Wheel goes round; only twenty minutes, Xl Inn II uiaa, "If It is my presence that distresses you," said the young man who had come in, "let me assuro you I shall in no way molest you."

She made no answer, but was an parently absorbed in the view, as their ony will bo -.w aiuniy ruse iiigner and nlglier. The strains of the band, the whirring rush of the switchback, and the snrieks of the passengers, became lainter and fainter, the elenhants and camels in the court below receded to the size of dogs, and the men running onsKiy about appeared like some fan tastic kind of toys. The car was near-h at tho greatest height when the pause made by the wheel to allow passengers In the bottom ones to get In and out grew strangely longer. She looked over the edge, checked herself on tho verge of an exclama tion, looked again, hesitated, and final ly said, anxiously: "What Is the matter? What are wf stopping so long for?"

She bore her anxiety In silence for half an hour, and then once more ad dressed her companion. "How long do you think it will be before they get it to move?" "I haven't the very slightest Idea." ne returned equably. Sho was looking out of the window again; so she did not observe a slight smne or tnumpn on his countenance, but at the end of another half an hour she suddenly burst into tears. 'Oh, perhaps we shall stay hero all night, and they don't know what has become of me, and Aunt Julia will be In such a rage." "Yes, It is rather awkward." ho as sented. "And you do-don't c-care a bit, but Just s-sit there smoking your horrid c cigarette," she sobbed. "Pardon me, but the last time we met you distinctly told me your af fairs were no business of mine, and that thenceforward we were merely strangers. I can hardly be supposed to take such interest in a stranger, however charming she may be" this In a tone of distant politeness. "Oh. Jack! I I dl didn't think you'd be so horrid and vindictive."

She said you weren't waiting till we were married till you were master." A long paus, during which the cigarette went out of the window, then a small voice said: "Jack, aren't you a little bit sorry?" "Are you, Daisy?" "A little bit: a very little tiny bit" "So am I. A great Mg bit." "Oh, Jack, dear Jack!" "Oh, Daisy, dear darling Daisy." They were occupying only one of tho many comfortable seats of tho car. when she raised her head and gave a little exclamation of surprise. "Why, Jack, the Wheel's moving!" "By Jove, we're nearly down again!" he Bald, in similar accents. "They have been very quick about t today." "Don't you wish they had been longer?" "Perhaps, Jack, dear; what a luckv accident It was you coming Into the same car. If I had been alone I should havo been dreadfully fright ened." "Would you, dearest? Well. I'm awfully glad I came.

Waverly Magazine A horticulturist In Boston has suc ceeded In producing a new and re markable fruit by crossing cucumber and orange plants. The new fruit, which Is yellow In color and devoid of seed, is suid to possess a most agree able flavor.

In Nacarozl, Mex ico, a year ago, Jesus Garcia, a loco motive engineer, bravely attached his engine to a burning car of dynamlto and hauled it out of the town.

A municipal judge in New York City, who Is noted for his witticisms, but not hitherto suspected of Irish blood, recently relieved himself of tho following amusing torrent of mixed metaphors: "Ah, well, Mr. So-and-so," addressing counsel, " it Is of no uso your going on; your arguments are quite thrown away on me.
