The longedfor spring weather
was ushered into this vicinity last
Sunday , and since the warm rayi
of the sun haH manifested its power
to the entire satisfaction of every

occasioned by the lateness of the

Tennessee , who was formerly a
resident of this vicinity , writes lliat
ho expects to return to Ouster Co.
as soon ahis * school closes in the

close of this term from the theolog

pects to make preaching his busi
ness and wishes to locate with some
Prof. Walsh , who is credited
with being the greatest hypnotist
of the ago , outo.trined small audi
ences in this city Monday and
Tuesday nights. All those who
were fortunate enough to witness
the performance wore highly enter
tained and well pleased. The
HmallnoHS of the crowds are atlribu
table to the foko hypnotist that had
proceeded him and to the fact that
in the Methodist
a revival mooting now
odist church was in progress.
Wm. Worth , of Callaway , who
was in the city Tuesday , informs
us that a son of Frank Moore ,
who lives four miles north of
Callaway , was accidentally shot
Saturday , inflicting a severe
wound in the knee. He and a
neighbor Boy of John Beechlen's '
were out with their cogs hunt
ing. The boys claimed to have
no fire arms with them , and tell
that a stray ball from other par
ties inflicted the wound , but the
the opinion of some of the neigh
bors is that the Moore boy had j

The dedication of the M. E.
church Sunday in this city drew a
large crowd. The other ohurohoa
of the city dismissed their Horvioos
for the occasion , and the several
ministers participated. The ecr-
raon both morning and evening waa
preached by Dr. Hhillips , of liold-
rogo. Ho is a scholorly and able
speaker , and his immensu audience
was highly entertained. The report -
port of the trustees showed than an
expense of $4,800 hud been made in
oreoting the LIOUHO , including the
grounds , of which $3,000 had been
paid , leaving an indebtedness of
$700 yet to provide. Plodgoa wore

. HOUUII MURDERED .
Win. Hough , who hasbeon A resi
dent of this city for several months ,
was shot and killed at Hyannis Init
? riday night It appears , from th
lost information wo have boon able
o gather , that Hough had boon t
Wintiuan a day or two previous
nnkiug nouostmrj ; nrraugoraonta to
nit in a saloon. Having completed
ho work of scouring the petitioner !
10 , with iivo or six. others , drove to
lyannis Friday afternoon , where
heir time was spent , until evening ,
t the saloon , Hough wont to the
lotel about seven and ordered super -
> or for two. The others of his
associates wont to the restaurant.
Just as Hough entered the office
'rom the wash room ho mot , fpoe
o face , his old sworn enemy , Fred
Moffitt. Before he had time tb
retreat Moffit shot him through the
abdomen with a forty live caliber
revolver , the ball panning through
'rom lott to right probably two
nohoH below the skin. u Ed Carey ,
the saloon keeper at Whitman , who
iad accompanied Hough to Hyan-
nip , was with him at the hotel , and
> rotoslod with Moffitt to desist , AI
lough had no gun , but in aooma as
f ho had started in to make a flu
sh of it , and ho shot the second
iinc , the bullet entering the loft
side , passing out of the right aide
well back. The shot waa fatal and
lough tell in his tracks , expiring
joforo the smoke olo.irod away.
The men had not mot before that
lay , nor was there a word passed
jotwoou them at the time. Ru
mors say that Homo two or throe
years ago Hough and Moffitt had
trouble and Hough punished Moffitt
Hoverely by pounding him ever the
head with a revolver. Whatayer
may have been the difference be
tween the men , it is evident that
Moffitt had determined on killing
lurn , and it oun bo nothing loss
than murder in the first degree if
oorreotly roportod. As yet wo have
not boon able to learn the vordiot
of the coroner's inquest. Hough's
remains were shipped here Sunday
morning and were taken in charge
by Undertaker Woods , The body
had remained at Hyannis a day
and two nights but had not been
dressed or even Inn shoes removed
from the foot. Mrs. Hough ,
accompanied by Mrs. F. R. Crablo ,
wont to Hyannis Friday night on
receiving word of the tragedy , re
turning with the body Sunday
morning. Monday morning she
accompanied the remains to La
Mars , Iowa , where Hough's parents
reside , for burial. Ed Carey , of
Whitman , also wont with them.
The deceased was without means ,
and the citizens contributed the
money to send the remains and
Mrs. Hough to their foimor home
in Iowa. The deceased leaves a
wife and throe chidreu , the older
boy about eight and the youngest a
girl about throo. The preliminary
trial of Moffitt is sot for Friday at
Hyanuis , where N. T , Qad > vill go
to assist the prosecuting attorney
in the oaso.
