It is understood that the jury stood nine for acquittal and three for conviction. Maupin has been on bond since the tragedy and was again released on bond after the jury failed to agree. A splendid array of legal talent was engaged in the trial, which included Hon. Tevis Cobb, leading attorney for the defense, assisted by John Boland, Judge Sullivan's law partner, and Messrs William and C. C. Wallace, while Commonwealth's Attorney B. A.

Because of the dry weather it did little damage in high places, but along creek bottoms and in tha lowlands early vegetation suffered considerably. Blackberries are in bloom and coming closely upon the heels of the recent cool weather leads us to expect "blackberry winter" to have its inning before we enter into the real "good old summer time." Tie-up In Cincinnati. There is a complete tie-up of street car traffic in Cincinnati.-the motormon and conductors having struck on last Saturday. Their grievances are many and include a demand for higher wages, an adjustment of working hours, recognition of their union and many others. In the meantime Cincinnatians are walking to and from their places of bnsiness or utilizing taxicabs, omnibuses, delivery wagons or whatever means of conveyance they are able to secure. Every effort is being made to settle the strike and the efforts will doubtless prove successful within a short time. Could Not See For Dust. The enormous amount of dust which we have expierenced within the last week has made us envy our neighbor ing towns who have oiled their streets, and has set us to wondenng if it would not be possible to oil at least the the Public Square in Lancaster. Of course this would be impracticable while the sidewalks are in course of construction, but after they are down it does seem that something along this line might be accomplished. Oiling is not very expensive, and it does seem that merchants would be more than recompensed for their outlay by the saving experienced to their stocks from the flying dust. Not only is the dust a nuisance to the merchants and the people but it is dangerous, it is laden with all manner of germs, and it would be well to couple the slogan "stop the dust" along with "swat the fly". Money Going1 Out Of Lancaster Which We Believe Could Be Kept At Home. There are two industries which we believe could be established in Lancas ter upon a paying basis, a laundry and a ereen house. It is true that we have in the past had both of these in dustries, and .both proved f ailured, but the surroundings were nothing like as favorable at that time as now. Mr. Heberling who is now in Georgetown established a greenhouse here before we had a system of water works and it proved unsuccessful financially, and Mr. Chrisman later established one up on a smaller scale which was also un successful; however, we believe, and we are prompted to this belief by the enormous demand for flowers, that a greenhouse, one that would supply the demand for cut flowers as well as pot ted' plants would prove a paying ven ture here now under more favorable surroundings than those which sur rounded former efforts. As for the laundry, we had a good laundry, but the condition and inadequate supply of water necessitated it shutting down, but since our water capacity has been materially increased and we are assur ed that in time, let us hope a short time, we are to have a modern filter ing system, which will materially im prove the quality of our water supply the year round, and we are now con strained to the belief that a good laun dry would also prove a paying invest ment in Lancaster. It surely does not seem just right that a town of Lancaster's size and progressiveness should have to depend upon their neighbors to furnish every boquet that goes to our best girls, or that our neighbors should have to be called upon to do our washing. Let us do our own washing and raise our own flowers.
