This led to further search in the vicinity, resulting in his recovering all four of tho stolen time-pieces and a pocket-book from the spot where they had evidently been has tily secreted by the thief. The proper ty was restored to the owners (the Mc- Connell '-boys" and Julius Christian son), but tho robber is still at largo. —A rather novel election wager will be publicly paid in this city next Tues day afternoon.

Lost: A fine Mexican parrot, a good talker. Finder liberally rewarded on leaving information of its whereabouts at this office. Anotiieu Suicide.— Following close ly upon tho recent murder and suicide at Colfas came the surprising intell igence Wednesday that Win. McCloud had ended his earthly existence with his own hands early that morning. Tho deceased was) living temporarily on the well-known Bryant place, five miles west of Pullman, with his family, and on the morning mentioned arose at about five o'clock and started the kitchen fire, as was his custom. He then left tho houso, though but partially dressed, remarking that he wouldn't bo gone long; but, as the time passed on and brought no sign of his return, Mrs. McCloud became un easy and began a search about the prem ises. Her husband was in poor health and snbject to spells of vomiting, con sequent upon chronic dyspepsia, and she feared that, as was sometimes the case, he might have fainted during one of these attacks. Not finding him in tho immediate vicinity, the search was ex tended to an old storage barn about one mile from the house, and there tho fam ily were horror-stricken by the discov ery of the lifeless body of tho missing man suspended by the neck from one of tho overhead beams. The neighbors were immediately notified nnd hastened to tho spot. Investigation showed that McCloud had walked to the barn in hia stocking-feet, picked up and knotted to gether several pieces of old lace-leather, such as is used in belting, had fastened ono end of this cord to the beam and the other end around his neck. To reach tho beam he had been obliged to mount upon the feed-tablo of a separator stored in the barn, and having thus adjusted ; matters to his satisfaction, he deliberate ly stepped off the table and hung sus pended by the neck. Tho leather, how ever, broke with the weight and ho fell to tho ground. He then secured some pieces of strong sacking twine and with these and tho leather succeeded in mak ing a cord sufficiently strong to bear the strain. This time his step from the feed-tablo was a step into eternity, sure enough. The nock waß not broken by the fall—death had resulted from strang ulation. The body was left as found until the arrival of Justice Lobaugh, of this city, when it was taken down aud an inquest held. The jury (Messrs. T. L. Hunt, B. Lanning, John Squires, E. and M. Bryant and Jno. Morrison) made a careful investigation, but no light was thrown upon tho cause of the 6uicide, unless it could bo attributed to tho de ccaped's bad health. There had been nothing observed in his actions to indi cate such an ending. Mr. McCloud came hero last spring from Canada, nnd had recently built a raakteaoe on Grand street, into which ho was intending to move the present week. Tho shock to his family and acquaintances caused by this sudden and unexpected event can be better imagined than described. The funeral services were held Thursday. Disastrous Collision-—Tho morning freight on the Farmington branch of tho (). Iv. & X. broke in two as it was ile eeending [the long hill at Colfax yester day at about 5 o'clock, and owing to the fact that there were no air-brakes or brakemen on the cars that staid by the engine, the engineer WbM unable to con trol his speed. The heavy frost also made itimpossible to use tho locomotive brakes successfully, and tho big engine entered the yard at a rapid gait, striking tho rear end of the Pullman train that was just about to leave, telescoping into the baggr.ge-car fully two-thirds of its length mill throwing the passenger coach into the ditch. Luckily there were but very few persons on board the Pullman train, yet the damage was con siderable. Tho fireman of the freight, whoso name wo did not learn, suffered a severe fracture of the skull, and at this writing there is little hope of his re covery. The engineer saved himself by jumping. Prof. M. A. Nelms, of the Pullman school, and his wife, were also injured, the lady so seriously that it is feared she will die. Conductor Barnes, of tho Pullman train, had his knee-cap knocked off. GUY. Correspondence, ISth. We can hear republicans crowing in every direction, but the fox still lingers among the bushes. Rev. Anderson, from Palouse City, preached a healthy discourse Sunday morning and evening at our school house. When he returns again (in four weeks) ho will protract the efforts for ono week.
