pretty deep water jut now is an
old resident of this cits' and lived
for many years on a farm twelve
miles west of town. Mr. Hutchison
is a brother-in-law of Cal Parmele,
and his wife is an invalid. The fol
lowing account of the attempted
murder is taken from the State
Journal, which says:
"There has been a murder com
mitted up there," exclaimed an ex
cited old man as he stepped from
the door at the foot of the stairway
leading to the second floor of the
Kitchen block at 1523 O street.
The remark was addressed to a
number of passersby who had
nanru temporarily mere at the
sound of a pistol shot repeated sev

old man who emerged walked hast
ily a few steps westward toward Fif

and wad seen a little later snapping
a revolver at his own head. It
failed to respond to the trigger and
the old man started around the cor

ward the capitol and disappeared
in the darkness.
Meantime in a room on the second

A New Ferry Road.
TheR&N. folks have offered
rignt ot way alontr their old river
track to the ferry if our people will
simply make a good crossing over
or under the main line track at or
near happy hollow. This would
give us a lirst class road instead of
the hilly round about way that pe
ople are compelled to travel at the
present time. A good level road to
the ferry would bring a great deal
of trade from the other side that we
donot get on account of the bad
road. Mr. Petersen the proprietor
offers to make a round trip rate of
7.1 cents for team and load if the
new road is fixed up. The citr coun
