A stabbing nil ray occured near
Kahoka, Clark county, last week, in
which Lloyd McKee, a wealthy sloe!:
raiser was killed by two brothers
named William and James Shaffer,
tho quarrel growing out of an old
feud. Win. Shaffer received a .stab
in the right breast, jut below the
nipple, anil a bad gawh aero-s the
left hand. It is titougiit that his
wounds will terminate fatally. Tiie
coroner's jury returned a e -d:ct hold
ing the Shatters for the murder of Mc
Kee, and they are now in jail. All
the parties concerned were prominent
in Clark county. L ineaUer Repub
lican. The murdered man is an uncle of
Ed. JL Mekee, of this city, and he
luforms us that the trial of tho mur
derers will take place this week.
Lloyd McKee was one of the lead
ing citizens of Clark county and there
appears no reason why he should have
been murdered. The trial will, no
doubt, result in sending the prisoners
to the nenitentiarv for life at least.

Blind Boone delighted quite a large
atylicnce at the Grand Opera House
last evening, by his wonderful power
on the piano. It seems like his child
as he tenderly caresses it and draws
from its strings music of the grandest
and most difficult kind. His powers
of memory are wonderful, aud he
plays any tunc called for by tho peo
ple in the audience. He can remem
ber an entire tune by hearing it play
ed once, and reproduce it with a fidel
ity that is almost startling. Those
who have heard Blind Tom say that
Boone is Ins superior in nearly every
thing. This afternoon he closes his
engagement here for the benefit of

performance, and will play a number
of pieces for the little folks. Peoria
