The case of the state of Missouri against Isaac Marshall was affirmed by the supreme court in banc last Tuesday. Some time ago divis'oa No. of the supreme court rercrsed and re- manded this case for the sicood time, but as one of the judges dissented, the cause, in accordance with c rule of the court, was transferred for final . adjudi cation to the court in banc, which affirmed the decision of the lower court Lut Tuesday, and unless a new hearing is granted the defendant win be compelled to serve ft two years sen tence in the penitentiary for the se duction of Miss Annie Mason, of near Brunswick, in the spring of 1893 under promise of marriage. . .. . Marshall was indicted in April. 1893, and was first tried in October of the same year, found guilty and sen tenced to the penitentiary for three )cars. He appealed to the supreme court, where his case was reversed and the cause remanded. ' His second; trial in the Chariton circuit court took place in April, 1895. a hen he was again found gouty ana sentenced to the peuitenaary for two fears. ' He' then appealed to the suprerBe court for the second time, and .cEtxs ioa No. a again reversed and re manded the cause., but as one of the judges stood in favor of affirming the decision ot the lower court, the case was transferred to the court in banc, which sustained the judgment of the circuit court. The defendant's attorneys, Messrs. L. N. Dempsey and Crawley & Son, win file a motion' waH the ' supreme court for a rehearing of the case,' and if that is refused, there wi3 be rxxLT. left but for Marshall to go to the pen itentiary and serve out his two years sentence. Since his alleged broken faith with Miss Mason, Marshall married Miss Sarah Bennett, of near ChraneviHe, in March. 1893, while the prosecuung witness. Miss Mason, was married to some man in Carroll county a few months before Marshall was convicted for the second time, but defendant's attorneys did not know of her mar riage until after the trial :n which their client was sent up for two years. Deputy Sheriff; L. A. Embrec ar rested Marshall up near ChraneviHe Wednesday, and he was brought to Keytesville and lodged in jail to await the arrival of the marsh.l cf the supreme court, who wui Mic hi an to ti e penitentiary, pentirg the result of his application for a i.w triaL The prisoner has a wife and one child. Two Chsrltoa County Bajr. The Higginsville Jtrumiati has the following to say of two former Charitoo county boys. Frank Heiro brook was born and reared near Salis bury, while D. II. Hancock is a son of Mr. and Mrs. D. II. Hancock. Sr., ot Keytesville, and gTew from early bojhooi to roan's estate in the sturdr old capital of Chantoa county: A few years ago we had in this city as clerks, those we are proud to day to call two cf our bevt business men. Frank Heimbrook and D. H. Hancock. Doth of these men started in life poor boys and by hard work and eccnomy have been able to ascend the ladder of success to such a height that they need have ro tears of being able to gather unto themselves much of this world's coods. Mr. Htim- brook is without question the leading exclusive boot and shoe dealer of the county. He enjoys a splendid trade and has the confidence of the people, which is an honor to any man. Mr. Hancock Is one of oar popular gro cery-men. and by (air dealing has bui!t up a good trade. Both of these men, by fair and honest work, while young, gained the confidence of the al4cst mer chant of Western Missouri and in hina they alvars had a safe adviser, and when it was necessary for them in thci' sutance they had but to ask Croe oung and it was forthcoming. In the lives of these two men can be learned the lesson of true obedience. No man ever worked harder to please his employer than did these men in doing the win of Grove Young and in doing this were only required to be strictly honest and faithful. . There could be n j higher compliment paid to man's honesty than the approval of Mr. Young and this be fredy gave to Frank Hcunbrook and Dave Hancock. Young man, emulate their example 'in faithfulness and you will never . be ' in need of a fxieod.

Keytcsrillc' Flowing Miners 1 WeJT. In the last two issues of the Co era ier we have made mention of Messrs. Thrash Bros.' newly bored well jnv the eastern bank of the Mussel Fork in the western part of town, and ex pressed the belief that its mioeraS waters could be made to (Tow, and ixm our mind's eye pictured Keytesville as a future health resort. The well is now 218 feet deep, anoT a stream of water flows from the tc as large as an ordinary sized pipe stem. Oiring to the funds that had beenv raised by private subscription to sink, the well from 198 feet to its present. depth having beea exhausted, work was suspended by M. Drarmin last Tuesday, but we are confidently of the opinion that work will be resumed? again in the near future as our people? can not afford to let the enterprise stop where it is now. Many of our citizens who have been drinking the water every day, say that, they have been greatly benefitted bw its use, and especially those who are afflicted with stomach troubles or con stipation. By all means let us sink the well deeper. To do so would only cost a few dollars more, and may result us an incalculable benefit to our town. We hope that Messrs. Thrash Bros. will have the water analizcd as soon as possible, and then we will lie enabled to know more of its curative properties and learn whether . or not fCeytesvilIe's miners! well will prove to be a blessinz to afflicted hurnanihr.
