January 15.—During the examination of witnesses in the trial of attendant Wood, /or killing Thomas J. Blount, an insane patient. Charles C. Tompkins, one-of the attendants, testified that Blount was consigned to his care, upon bis reception in the institution, and he superintended his bathing and noticed no cliscolorations on his body. There were no injuries save a small scar on one leg, where a slight injury was almost healed. Blount's physical condition was good, save for a nervous temperament. On the night the injuries were received he was temporarily absent from the ward, and upon returning he found several attendants in the room, and Wood holding- Blount in bed, with one hand on his breast. Blount complained that some was trying to choke him. Wood said that this was one of his delusions,' and that Blonnt had struck at him twice and he was compelled to restrain him. Blount was very talkative, and it was one of his delusions that he was always making speeches, also that he carried several bullets in his body. He talked in. a wild, incoherent manner, and was SO inclined to walk about that he was shut up in a small room to himself. His statement that he had been choked was the first witness had ever heard him make ol this kind. Under cross-examinaiion Tompkins gave a minute description of Blount's condition,, and he also stated that Hannan, through whose instrumentality the offense of Wood first came to light, was allowed the freedom of the institution, and he never saw an eccentric or insane action on his part during his stay in ;he institution. Blount was never :onsidered a dangerous patient, and tie was confined simply because he walked about and disturbed other salients. John Marsh, another attendant in the same hospital, testified that he aw Wood_ and Peterson in Blount's room on the night in question, and they were holding him down. Blount had' his feet. against Wood and was trying to push him away, and Wood was leaning over him. and had. hold of his throat. The witness passed out, but upon returning he found Blount still pushing Wood with his feet, and Wood struck him seven or eight times on .the breast with his list. Blount cried out that he was going- home, and the witness told Wood and Peterson to let him up and see what he would do. Blount raised his head and shoulders toward Wood, whereupon Wood kicked him two or three times. Blount was then groaning and talking. Under cross-examination the witness said that Wood seemed a little angry, and when the doctor same Wood took Blount by the arms and held him up. The next day witness bathed Blount, but he noticed discolorations. He helped him into a tub with the aid of a patient, and, upon helping him down-stairs, he seemed crippled and could scarcely stand. This morning John Peterson, who was present at the time the alleged assault was committed, testified that about S o'clock on the evening of September -5, he was attracted to. Mr. Jlount's roem by the sound of scuffling, and found attendant Wood wrestling vyith the patient. They clinched aud 'ell. The witness then assisted Vood in lifting the patient to the bed. le attempted to rise and Wood caught lim by the throat with his left hand and struck him five or six times in tne throat and chest.- He afterward ;tood on top of Blount's breast and stamped him with his feet.

His greatest physical infirmity is the almost total failure of his hearing and eye-sight. His mental faculties are normal, however, and he takes a keen interest in life. (/'hurley HUK Been* "Taken In." The Journal will bet its last dollar on the "honest farmer," but when a mild-mannered son of toil, sells a fellow a two year old' rooster for a young hen and does it without batting an eye, it has a tendency to cause a fellow to conclude that there is an occasional farmer with a seared conscience. —Delphi Journal.

'Mr. Bradbury procured the wage schedule of forty different lines, and made a careful,, examination of them to find that the Lake Erie & Wastern. is paying- more than the average. The company, too, has not violated its contract made with the engineers and signed by their chief officers. It is not thought the engineers will inaugurate a. strike.—Indianapolis News. The Pennsylvania Company has the -•eputationot standing by its men if they are in the right, and it is hard..to, displace an employe except for cause. The operator atMilford.

A year leaves many broken sets and poor assortments in some lines in a stock like, ours.' It leaves us with a larger stock than we want in some lines-too small a stock to be profitable in other lines. We're many odd pieces not worth their value'to us because their is not a defined demand for them, but just as valuable to you; if you find just what you want among them as if we broke a set to-give them to you. These are the reasons for many of our present bargains, and they extend through many lines. These are a few of them: ...---.' 56 pieces Decorated Tea Set $3 75 10 pieces Decorated Toilet Set... 2- 25. 85 pieces Decorated Dinner Set... 7 50 Snow Ball Flour, per -hundred. .. 2 50 There 's no one but needs something which can be found among our inventory bargains and.'tis woith while looking through them.
