Hauling manure on gardens pays. So
James Green thinks, since he found a
silver watch ia a manure pile, which he
was hauling to H. B. Pershing's garden,
from the alley back of Thompson's Livery
8table a few days ago. The watch was
of American manufacture, and from the
superior mechanism of the case was un
hurt, although exposed to the inclement
weather of perhaps more than one winter.
He was offered $25 for the watch ; but

Last week we published a very inter

from the flowing pen of Col. Poe, proprie
tor of the People's' Drag Store, which
should have been illustrated with appro

artist to do the subject justice. The Col
has recently' bought out the stock., of
Drugs, &c, formerly owned by Poe &
Hayes, in Warsaw, and has removed the
same to Plymouth. The Col. had not
room enough in his very economically
arranged store for all his goods ; and was
obliged to procure storage elsewhere.

THE CONNERS CASE.
Conners Sentenced to the Peni
tentiary for. 6 Years-
The trial of Conners, for the murder of
John W. Thornburg in Plymouth, a little
over two years ago, came off at South
Bend last wed;. , He was found guilty
and sentenced i the Penitentiary for six
Most of our readers remember the cir
cumstances of the killing of Thornburg;
but as they are not known to all, we give
the following brief account. In January
18.0, in the night, there was aterrible fight
by drunken men in Haslingers drinking
saloon, in Plymouth. John W. Thorn
burg, a school teacher, who was an excel
lent teacher and a peaceable man when so
ber, was in the fight. He had been drink-
i ng fur several days. The next morning
after the fight Thornburg was found in
Oglesbee's mill yard, insensible and terri
bly bruised. He lived in an unconscious
state about two days, when he died.
Conners, Kreyer, and Chas Hasliuger
were jointly indicted for the murder.
Haslingjr was tried by a jury who failed
to find a verdict, for tiie reason that after
the trial had been two or three dsys in
progress, two of the jurors became sick
aud unable to hear the whole of the evi
dence. But the evidence brought out w as
of such a character as to convince the
Prosecuting Attorney that he could not
be convicted, and the case as to him was
non yenned. Kreyer' s case has never
come to a trial, aud we understand he is
now under bonds for his appearance for
trial. Conner's case came up at the Feb
ruary term of the Marshall Circuit Court
in 1872, when he was tried by a julry,
found guilty, and his punishment assessed
at nine years confinement in the peniten
tiary ; but sentence was not pronounced.
A new trial was granted by the judge, and
the case was continued to a special term
in May following, when it was continued
to the regular term in August. It was
again continued to the February term,
1872, a charge of venue was granted and
the case sent to St. Joseph county, with
the result above stated.
