Will Wood has been arrested and

L vi 1:1:: - As near as can be ascer
tained the facts in the case are these:
Young Jackson had been intimate with
Miss llryan for some time, and it was
discovered that the girl was in a serious
condition. She left home, it is thought,
to meet Jackson, when an operation
would be performed. She was never
seen alive afterward by her friends. It
is thought she met Jackson and died
probably while undergoing an opera
tion. The young fiend is supposed to
have severed her head to prevent iden
tification. What implicates young
Wood is: A letter was written to him
by Jackson designating what kind of
medicine should be purchased to give
to the girl. It is not probable that he

Lewis Canaan, the religious acrobat
and all round contortionist who has
been enlivening the community north
of P.ourbon, was examined Wednesday
by Drs. Matchette and Linn of P.our
bon. whose diagnosis of his case cor
roborates the general impression that
he is mentally unsound. They did not
seem to think, however, that his condi
tion would warrant proceedings for
commitment to an asylum. It is un
derstood that Canaan went to P.ourbon
with Messrs. Sullivan and submitted to
the examination with the understand
ing that if he did not do so his case
Would be taken tip by the neighbors in
legal form.

We never believe in kicking a man

a man has established a bad record
any little thing that happens in his im

blame. It is thus w ith Mr. Hill who is

following is from the Warsaw Times
regarding a little transaction in tli.it
"Piano" Hill, a gentleman fairly
well know in Plymouth, called at a

be of some interest to our readers to
state a few facts regarding this great
representative military organization,
and the work they do: They are
divided oil into working forces, such as
slum work, rescuj work for fallen
women, the prison gate brigade, who as-j
sist discharged criminals, the shelter

much more of interest to and connected

Wednesday at i:I." coroner proceed
ed to hear two inoie witnesses in regard
to t lie Swoverland shooting. Those
j who were betöre Coroner Kaszer
! were Melvm Soencer and Mel-
viri Ueed. The evidence secured from
those two witnesses did not materialy
differ from that secured from those
who had heard the remarks of John
Swoverland on the streets of Jlourbon
two weeks ago last Saturday. These
two gentlemen were in the Jgroup on
that day when the threat to kill Stewart
was made.
At the conclusion of the evidence
given, Coroner Kaszer rendered the fol
lowing verdict: "That the deceased,
John Swoverland. came to his death by
being shot by Samuel Stewart.who eom
mited the act in self defence, and was
exenorated by the coroner."
Immediately after the rendering of
the verdict an allidavid was filed by
Mart Swoverland against Samuel Stew
art, charging him with murder. The
warrant was placed in the hands of
Constable Klinger who served it. on
Stewart was brought before Squire
I Jeeves Wednesday at Ü o'clock,
as he was arrested on the charge of
j murder, ami not bailable, it will neces
sitate his laying in jail until the next
term of court which is set for March.
Samuel Mewart seems to feel confi
dent that he will be cleared of the.
charge, of murder, and is perfectly will
ing to wait patiently the result of the
trial. His arm which was cut is im-
j proving slowly and though at first he
was unable to move his lingers, they are
becoming so that he can move them
without much trouble.

There are alwajs rumors as thick as
hairs on a dog's back that originate
from such a scene as occurred at the
Flsesser's sale last week. A report
comes to us, the truth of which we are
not willing to assume, but give it space
as it is worthy of perusal.
It is said that Joe Anderson, of this
city, who is now in the oil business for
a tlrm at Cleveland, was there. When Die
shooting commenced there was a lively
scattering. Among those who were in
close proximity to swoverland and
Stewart, were Joe Anderson
and James Sheet, a constable from
Mrs. FJsesser hearing an unusual com
motion in the house went to see what
it was, and discovered Joe Amleison
and Constable sjK.ttz. hid in the bed
She asked them what they were doing
there, and Sheet, replied that he was
an "odieer of the law." It is said that
Anderson was speechless and kept jerk
mg his head from one side to the other
as though he was trying to dodge bul
lets. Mrs. Flsessec again ordered them out.
of the house and as she went int.)
another room an unusual noise attract
ed her attention and an investigation
found three more brave men under a
bed. It is said it took considerable
work to get them alPout of the house.

after the shooting was over.

.Joseph M. P.erkley, who is managing
ice ciitting at Fagle Lake, will in the
future be careful how he lills out a

for him a few days, and on Saturday

over Sunday. Not having the necessary
cash he combined their wages and
wrote out a check for si. 1 1, obligingly
accompaning the check with a little

Afternoon tea socials are becoming
all the rage in our classic city and the
time spent at these receptions by our
home people seem to form a stronger
bond of friendship. Wednesday one of
these social gatherings was held at the
residence of (I. W. Thayer. The pleas

experienced at all of these gatherings.
