head, he snapped the trigger on the
empty chambers, with a "ping" "ping"
"ping" and "boom" when the loaded
chamber was reached, and the pet dog
fell over a dead one. The screams
from the boy called the neighbors, and
he at first said the dog was killed from
some one outside, but the discovery of
the old pistol told the story, and of
course the lad did not know it was
loaded. It might have been worse.

News was received some time since
of the very bad condition in the health
of A. M. Holmes, who with his daugh
ter, Mrs. W. S. Smith, have been visit
ing in the east for sometime past. They
departed for the east some time since,
expecting to stay all winter, - and had
intended to visit many places, seeing
the old-time scenes, where Mr. Homes
had spent his childhood, and renewing
acquaintances, in the times of early
days. Soon after the arrival of Mr.
Holmes and daughter in the east Mr.
Holmes was stricken with a blood clot
on the brain, which promised a devel
opement of paralysis, but which was
averted by the skillful art of the phy
sician. During the time when he has
been sick, he has been kept as absolute
ly quite as possible, with the result that
the clot was in the main abscorbed, and
the condition, of Mr. Holmes is such
that a few days since he was able to
make a trip some eight miles. The
physicians promised that at the rate of
improvement in his condition that the
home journey might be undertaken.

Farmer's in the Vicinity of fJehawha, Proceed
to Organize and Elect Officers For Their
Company, at Meeting Yesterday
Are Very Enthusiastic.
Yesterday the farmers to seventy
five in number met at the village of
Nehawka and completed an organiza
tion for the operation of a grain eleva
tor. The meeting was called to order,
with J. S. Routh occupying the chair.
and R. C. Pollard as secretary. The
sum of $5, 150 was reported subscribed
by the solicitation committee and the
capital stock was increased from $6,000
to $10,000. A board of directors was
elected, consisting of J. S. Routh, Wm.
Ost, R. C. Pollard, J. J. Pollard, S. C.
Shumaker, Louis C. Todd and J. W.
Murdock, seven in all, for which there
were seventeen candidates. The farm
ers are very enthusiastic in the making
of the organization. From the board
of directors the following officers were
chosen: J. S. Routh, president; R. C.
Pollard, secretary; Wm. Ost, vice
president; S. C. Shumaker, treasurer.
A proposition was received for the sale
of the elevator of H. M. Pollard, which
was passed to the board of directors,
GEORGE HASOn DIED
Small Scratch on the Finger
Some Three Weeks Since
This morning at about 10:30, George
- ' !
ason, of Mynard, died of blood poison- j
ing, as a result ot getting his hand j
scratched some time since, with a knife j
while butchering. The hand was so
slightly wounded that it was not thought
necessary to treat it at first, until it
became affected, when it grew serious
rapidly, and was one of the most dif
ficult cases to care for that has appear
ed for some time.
The skill of the physician was taxed
to the utmost, and it was with little
hope that anything could be done to
effect a cure, as the case was one of
such virulence. Mr. Mason is a brother-in-law
of Frank Marler, the Blacksmith,
at that place, and leaves a wife and
one child, a boy of about five years of
age. The Mason family came to My
nard about a year ago, from Brad
shaw, succeeding Holmes & Smith in
the general merchandise business, and
selling to W. T. Richardson some three
months. After disposing of his store,
Mr Mason has been doing odd jobs,such
as helping thresh, and things of a simi
lar nature. Announcement relative to
the funeral will appear latter.

tion, and who will meet tomorrow for
deciding upon the proposition.lt is more
than probable that the company will
buy one of the elevators which are at
that point, rather than erect another
and a third one.
The matter of the farmers entering
the grain handling business seems to be
gaining very rapidly. There are farm
ers elevotor companies now at South
Bend, Wabash, Murray, Cedar Creek,
Manley and this one being organized at
Nehawka, makes six and with a promise
of more to follow. The by-laws and
constitution was adopted yesterday at
Nehawka similar to those in vogue at
Murray and Cedar Creek.
In the attempt to purchase the eleva
tor at Nehawka, it seems the farmers
are doing the right thing, for it would
seem that two institution of that kind
would be enough and it is not the inten
