SALOON KEEPER SARLO RELEASED ON BAIL. Little Rock, July 19.—Joe Sarlo, who killed J. D. Conant Saturday morning, was released from custody Saturday night by Justice Hart and placed under §2,000 bond to await the action of the Pulaski grand jury. Sarlo gave this version of the difficulty: “It was a case of kill or get killed with me and I was a little too quick for him, that was all there was to it. Conant came in my place five or six times Friday night bent on trouble, and I tried to pacify him as best I could. He had been drinking, but was not what would be termed drunk. Further than this I have no statement to make.” Conant was shot through the waist, the ball entering the top band of the trousers about an inch to the left of the flap and bored its way entirely through the body. The bullet struck the wall on the opposite side and bounded back to the bar. It was 3lightly flattened as though it had struck a rib in passing through Co uant’s body. -- SUPREME COURT ENJOINS NORTH LITTLE ROCK. Little Rock, July 19.—Chief Justice H. G.

Star gazing being quite :n vogue just now, a St. Louis astronomer gives j the following directions for locating1 the newly discovered comet, a portion of which is now visible to the naked Bye in the northeastern sky: Stand facing the northeast at about 9 o’clock, a clear evening. Look up at an angle of about 45 degrees. You will have no trouble in seeing Alpha Cygni, a brilliant star of the first magnitude. No other star of equal radiance is in that section of the firmament, unless it be Vega, which at 9 o’clock will be almost directly overhead. Taking Alpha Cygni as your cue, trace out “The Swan,” a constellation shaped something like a cross, the points and center formed of live large stars, scattered between which are very small stars. The lowest star of the cross is called beta Cygni. The comet is now near beta Cygni, south of Alpha Cygni. Do not expect to see anything with a long tail. The tail is there, two of them, many miles long, but not yet visible to the naked eye. The comet looks like a filmy star J with a haze around it. It is not as brilliant by many times as Alpha Cygni, but, corresponds rather to a star of the third or fourth magnitude. JS RECORD BREAKING RAIN.
