AX -EX PENSIVE FIGHT.
It has been an expensive fight to his

THOUSAND OTSHELS
OF SEED CORN BY MAIL.
UnSqae Order Received from the
Government l>y n. Richmond
Firm.
One of tire most unique orders ever re
ceived -in Richmond , was that sent by the
United States Department of -Agriculture
yesterday, to T.W. ,YTood & Sons,, seed
men, of this city. The order -was for
1,000 bushels of -steed-corn" to be delivered
in Arkansas through the medium 'of the
Dost-offlce. : : « "
The Arkansas corn crop last season was
a failure, and the Department of Agricul
ture has given the farmers of that State,
the material for 'entirely new seeding.
The railway postal service is very much
perplexed ho 'wto handle this big con-1
signment of mail matter. It is provided
that each bag shall contain one bushel
only, so that the postal people", can find
accommodation in the cars for it. • It
has been arranged to ship the corn in lots
of 100 bushels at a time, and for. the
next ten days the postal service from.
Richmond and the railway clerks will be
in the agricultural business on a large
scale. ■"
Air. A. J. Pieters. of the Department
of Agriculture, at Washington, Is in the
city attending to the shipment of the
corn- and he is provided with': all the
necessary material •in the way of bushel
bags and labels furnished by the gov
ernment.. /. : ":.; ' : -'..'. • -■• , • . -
- The corn will be sent to certain centres
in 'Arkansas,'", and from /those points dis
tributed \ throughout ahe State., .- . . " .;-.

Captain '. Bigger -waaked /into the barn
on the premises about -12:25. rand; within
a : few, minutes -two -reports: of a; pistol
were heard; by Overseer Henry, -who was
.CAPTAIN CHARLES P. BIGGER,
at .work ; near the barn at the time.' ,He
went to the barn, and-f ound Captain Big
ger lying -prostrate^ on _• the floor " of /an
empty ■ stall/ breathing his • last. ■■":■ ' '.; ;-. \
An alarm was quickly given, but when
Dr. VEYy, ; the vHome v ; physician, - arrived j
on the scene. a few : minutes : later,- Captain i
-Bigger4was : deadi^rApparwitlyionlyione^rof I
: the ; shots took effect. ! The bullet entered ■
the : head about an Inch above the right
: ear, I ranged i upward and - came : out oh • the
upper ' left side -of the head ; about three |
' in che's : above the left ear. ■£ It is . supposed
that the other,; shot was ; fired • by Captain
Bigger • while in. the act /of ; falling," ; for
there was no evidence of any other wound
'on' his body. ; ■ . • . , ' 'i'- - ■ .-..- .' , .
, Although two bullets were fired, it is the
opinion of Coroner James that the second i
shot was caused by a : spasmodic' contrac-;
tion of the hand immediately, following j
_the- first shot. The hullet- passed directly i
through the brain, and. death must have
been almost Instantaneous.? As -the..wea
pon used was a self-acting, hammerless
pistol, .with quick : trigger './action,- this
theory is well substantiatec* -

When Overseer: Henry;;' discovered, the

: The successful 'attempt to .• take his life

Thursday he went to the room of one of

said that he wantedvto;have;a long talk j
with: him. He took ;'a" seat in a' chair,
and suddenly. \ without / any •warning,-; |

trembling hands, thrust "the : muzzle : of ■ the: j
