An armed poise of more tban one hundred farmers honied through the woods five miles from Middletown, N. Y., yesterday, for William Monroe, wbo ia wai ted for an at'empt to murder six persons and for setting fire to the barn of Abraham Deyo, at Ireland's Corners, nesr New Platt. Monroe, who is about Sb years old, is known as a bard citizen. He bas served a term in prison for a minor offense. On the complaint of Deyo he waa ar? rested some time ago for assault and bad been threatening to get even. He select? ed yesterday afternoon. Arming himself with a piece of Ira pipe about an inch in diameter, he weot to tbe Deyo farm and called Abraham Deyo to tbe door of the farra house. As Deyo stepped outside into the door-yaid Monroe felled him with a blow of the pipe. Mrs. Deyo, who saw the act, and hu sister-in-law, Mrs. Jonathan Deyo, ran outside. Both women were knocked senseless by a blow over the head, and Monroe then struck Deyo several limes. A woman servant ran out and waa felled. Leaving tbe senseless women and tbe man lying abe re they fell, Mon? roe went into the house. He smashed up the furniture, and, finding a child sleeping in the chadle, tossed it against the wall. Satisfied tbere was no one else in the house, he made bis way to the barn, some distance away. There four men were pressing hay. Jonathan Deyo, the attorney, who had come up to visit his brother, was watching them work. Monroe called bim to tbe front of the barn and struck him down. Monroe then took a handful of matches from his pocket, lighted them and tossed them into the loose hay. The four men, win had come to tie assistance of Mr. Deyo, stopped and tried to save tbe barn aod the horses. In the meanwhile, Monroe made his es? cape. In a few minutee Ibe barn was a mass of flames and the<nen had bard work to save tbe other buildings. The reputation of Monroe as a desper? ate man, who bad served a term io prison and wbo was considered a men? ace 11 the thinly settled community, caused tbe greatest indignation, and threats were made of lynrbing. The outrage bsd been committed aha il tfetoew, aud befor* nightfall Constable Charles LU- had gathered a posse, the members of which had volun? teered to assist in the running down of Monroe. He had not bf en located at an early hour this morning. A TRAGEDY IN PARIS. Miss Winifred Paisona, the daughter of the late Charles Parsons, president of tbe Rome, Watertown aod Ogdensburg Railroad. New York who died in 1904, was fouud dead with a bullet wound in her head yesterday in her apartments in the Avenue Iona, Paris. The police say that tbe caae is one of suicide, while friends of the dead girl declare that the shooting was an acci? dent. Owing ti the desire of frienda and relatives to give the tragedy a< little public ty as possible, the affair at first appeared wrapped in mystery. It wss learned, however, that tbe girl had been suffering from melancholia since tbe death of her fiance, a young Frenchman, Emile Meas, who died four months ago from consumption. Miss Parsons was found dead in bed at noon Sunday by a maid who petered the room with her breakfast. The girl's right hand clatcbed a revolver, a bullet from which had penetrated tho brain.

Information has been received in Baltimore that the oysters oo tbe dredging grounds known as tbe Tea Table, Lumps, aod Middle Ground, in the upper (Jhesspeske bsy, are dead, and the once prolific ground, where thousands of bushels of oytt?rs were secured, is now a barren waste. A tbr -ugh investiga? tion of the locality has just been made by a practical oyttcrmau to find out what the prospects are for the coming season. A dredge wu thrown over? board about a dozen times st each of the places named and only brought up shells and dead oysters. It was stated that freaheta and the dumping of mod on the oyster beds have been the cause td killing the large quantities of oysters tbat in past seasons bave given profitable employment to hundreds of oystermen.

A story is published in Louisville, Ky., that the American Tobacco Com? pany bis withdrawn itt 22 country buy? ing agent i from Kentucky. The an? nouncement comes ss a completi sur? prise to loc.il tobscco men, and has canned quite t dairy among those int-r ested in tbe situation throughout the ?ttte. Fnrtbermore, it is known tbst the company intend* to o^eo np head? quarters in Cincinnati. Tbe rumor is that the company intends io ertirely quit Ke< tucky. Officials of tbe Amer? ican Tobacco Comp \ny decline to dis? cuss the outcome of tbe move. Louisville has for yean been tbe largest leaf tobacco market in tbe world, thousands a<ore hogsheads of tobacco being bandied on the local "breaks" annually than at any other point. It is generally accepted that tbe oumer oas "Nigbt Rider" tnuhlea and the in? tense feeling which exis's against the American Tobacco Company in many sert'ons have caused tbe officials of th* company to withdraw the country agents fjom the State.
