This e\ideiii'e was substantiated by Dim-

point witness paid that he knew the men to
lie despeiato eh.iracteis and did not want to
face them. When honied thu .second shot
liu know that the man was llreinir tiom him.
Witness said that dining the time between
the mid bccond shots he saw
( irlllln still tinning , and he shot a second
time to keep him liom making his escape ,
although lie knew at thn time that ( irillin
was one-legged man. The contradiction
between Pound's Iltst statement ot shooting
In seif-detense and his .second assertion that
he shot to capture CHIllii. was thus brought
out. Witness admitted that he did not know
at the time ho shot ( iilllln that any robbery
had taken place . Witness thought n Mint-
Kun was less dangcious to use in a crowd
than a revolver , and gave as a fuither ic'ison
thathu thought u gun was a better bulldo/cr
than a plhtol.

Introduced , when the court adjomncd at Up.

to the postmaster his annual report
upon the operations of his bureau for tlie fis

ber ot postolliees at the end of the hscal year
was 5l'J52. Tlie number of offices subject to
appointment by the piesidcnt ( picsidential

" 1 u v lew ot the success ol the tiee delivery

lants tlie recommendation that autnoriiy be
cent cried by legislation for its extension to
places of luOUO iunabitaiils having a gutss
levenue ot felO.OOO. " The leport luielly states
the advantages that have icsiilted Irom the
consolidation of laigo lice delivery olllces
and leeommeiids that tlio same policy be ap-
pjied to the nou-lieedeliveiy otlicesho as to
give them the beueiits of lieu dclivurv. It is
believed that this consolidation would icduce
the labor of examining accounts by cutting
down the number otsep.nate postolhcea ami
result in greater harmony in tlio seivlce.
"The postal receipts , " says ( leu. Stevou.-on ,
"forming tlie basis ol saiaiies of presidential
postmasters , fluctuate with the lavoiable or
unfavorable condition ot the business ot the
country. At the present time icpoils show
that the countiyis enteiing upon an eia ot

Henry Mellert attempted to poison his
mother and two llltlo brothers hero a few
daj-s since by putting arsenic In their tea. Ho
is seventeen jears pf ago , andmuirieda

amessase to tlio diuggist Iicro , signed his
mother's name to It and t > cnt his little brother
to the stoio with twenty-Jive rents to get
some aiseiuc , saying that 11 was wanted lo
put In a ml.xtuio to hum Mis. Meliert's

mother to let | , | m pieji.iro the lamlly
hicakiast , but tailed in this , and in tlie ove-
niii ; ; tiied airain. this time with moio
hiiccess. Ho placed milk in the cups for lea
and a muntltj ol aisenicin each cup. When
Mis , Mclicrtpoincd thu tea him noticed that
theio was moie milk than necessary and
ponied u little Irom eaeh cup back Into thu
pitcher. She also noticed the appearance of
a scum on top ol the tea and remarked that
the milk must have gouied , but thought none
no moio ot It nt the time and with her two
sons drank the tea. Henry gave some excuse
for not drinking Ids. Soon alter , the mother
and two bovs became violently III nnd vom

I' ' or three days tlio victims weio
