Tho shootlng occurrcd ln a room over the store, occupled by Coles, and there woro no eyowltnosses other than tho prlnclpaU lnvolved. The room ln whlclx thc shootlng took place show? ed slgns of a struggle. It seems, ac? cordlng to Coles, that Irvin got into troublo here several weeks ago, nnd that Coles went securlty for the flne, but as Irvin falled to settle, hc n'otl fled tho police to rearrest Irvin, aa ho wlshed to dlscontlnuo on tho bond. Irvin was rearrested, and when taken before tho Mayor. made some urrange ments to pay thc tine. Coles stated he was busy about the store to-day when Irvin ontorcd, doclorlng he was going to klll hlm, and began an at? tack upon hlm, whereupon Coles- se curod hls plstol and began firlng, shootlng Irvin tbrcc tlmcs, onco ln the head, onco ln tho mouth, nnd onco Just over tho heart. Coles. in tho ex cltement, shot himself In the heel, In lllctlng only a slight flesh wound, whlch was attended to at the Clty Jall hero thls afternoon. Irvin was taken to the General Hospital. Irvin ls a marrled man, and came hero about a year ago from Manches? ter. He worked at first in tho cot? ton mllls, but later followed the oc cupatlon of a carpenter. Ho has a wife and small chlld llving here. Hls wlfo arrived at the sceno of the shoot? lng about 12 o'clock, and appeared rieartbrokcn at tho fato whlch had be tallen her husband. Coles is about fifty years of age, and las heen llving here for many years He nas a wlfe and four children. in :ludlng two grown sons, and made hls homo on Noblo Avenue. Ho occa slonalty slept in the room over hls store, and during the Christmas holi jays he shot and seriously Injured a Southern Railway flreman. who came to his placo lato at night. and who ho Lhought was a burglar. Ho was cloar ?d of blame in connectlon wlth this :ase. Both men are well-known ln Man shester, whero they havo many rola :ives. Irvin has a father and brother dving at 1112 McDonough Street. He iias boen living ln Danville about a year. Coles has several brothers llv? ing ln Manchester. and went to Dan? ville to accopt a position as a drlver. Ihe men are sald, by relatives and frlends, to have been good-frionds, but no one here knew that Coles had fur? nlshed securlty for Irvln's flne, al? though lt was known that Irvin had been ln troublo of some kind In the DanvUle courts.

SDRGHDAJ SEEDS USED FOR FRADD They Are Sold to Southern Farm? ers as Marvelous New Wheat. & Washlngton, D. C, March 14.?Some unscrupulous seedsmen, accordlng to the Department of Agrlculture, havo ] been reaptng a harvest in the South by selling sorghum seed at high prices, : sometimes under tho assuranco that it ivas a new varlety of wheat that would yield 200 to 400 bushels to 'the acro,. ind at othor times as a new varlety of ] sugar cano that produced seed and _ould be grown a great deal farther tforth than the ordlnary vorioty. Both of these claims are untrue, and ivhlle tho department. cannot put tho icedsmon ln jall under tho puro food aw or adopt any drastio measuro of ;hat sort, lt has protested flrmly against :hls sort of mlsrepresontatton. As a soquel to thls rovivod Interest n sorghum, tho department has. lssued two bulletins telllng what sorghum reaily Is and how tho varietles that bave been sold in tho South have been mi3representod.

Ha sdld a groat quanttty of tho seod at 50 cents a pound. but tho varlety ho sold waa only about half ag productivo as kaftlr corn and was not so gooci ror forago, Thero was another fraud perpe trated byjthe salo of sorghum seed aa "chocolate corn," with tho assuranco that tho Department of Agrlculture was pxperlmcnttng with thls new and valuable corn and had somo socd for dlstiibution. Aa a matter or fact. the department never had any of the seed of tho "chocolato corn" at all. Sold us Rlbbou Cune. Tho greatest fraud was the selling of a largo quantlty of aorghiun seod as "seed hearlng ribbon cane." Now, ribbon co.no ls the popular naine for sugar cane ln tho South, and the hollef of the purchasers was that thls was a new- varlety of sugar cano that would betlr seed, whlch 4uu\\ sugar cano wlll not do. ln roallty, the aeed sold wits tlint*or tho "goose neck" aorgluim, and whon thla seed supply run out tho vendors sald any other sort of aor? gluim seed ln' lts pluco.
