OneQ thousand five hundred yards short length (one to four yards) Hamburg embroidery, will be offered today at the opening of .the Bee Hive's Careful investigation yesterday failed to reveal anything confirming the rumor of a killing at Barney Bligh's Sunday morning. The rumor yesterday displayed several new leads which were followed with the same result. A trip to the home of George Horn in Bethlehem township, disclosed the fact that that individual was in the city Saturday but left about four o'clock in the afternoon for home. Mr. Home was. surprised to learn, that he had been killed and emphatically denied the correctness of the report. Throughout all the investigation there was noticed much discrepancy in the name of the man supposed to be -slug", g'ed but an agreement on the one fac that some man had been slugged Sunday morning. No man was found who was willing to say that he ' knew anything directly of the occurrence and the Journal in justice to Mr. Bligh must say that there is no evidence whatever to justify the rumor How it got started is a mystery which a further examination may disclose. M 1 ' A Strantre Arrival. Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock a bright faced, intelligent appearing soy about eight years of age rang at ;he door of George B. Forgy's residence. Mrs. Forgy responded to the ring-and on questioning the little ellow was astounded at the story he told. The lad said .hat his name was Stephen Sew man and that be had come 'rom Lebanon, having been . told y his ' father to come here and ive with Mr. and Mrs. Forgy, nd in response to this paternal command he was there. All the questioning Mrs. Forgy could apply produced no further light on the mystery. The boy simply stated that he had been told to come and live with them and' there he was ready and willing to make the required change in his residence. Mrs. Forgy brought the boy down town to Mr. Forgy's office but he was unable to solve the strange riddle of the boy's appearance. Neither of them had ever heard of the boy or any such a family a Lebanon and were greatly puzzled what to do with the little stranger. The boy was bright and intelligent, and readily answered all questions. He said that his mother was dead' and that he bad a little brother. He appeared to be somewhat timid in'"his .ne.w surroundings, and. said that he was ready to go 'back home. Mr. and Mrs. Forgy 'gave the little stranger a home last night, and Mr. Fovgy will investigate tne strange case to-day. Tlie Plunger. Oliver Byron's new play, -'The .Plunger," has evidently scored ,a big success, judging from the reports corning in. The plot is very :;sensational in its details, and the scenery introduces many new and startling features. Among the stage effects introduced by Mr. Byron is an elevated railroad train in, motion, clattering along at full speed through a rain, and hail-storm, .real water being used to add in the discomforts of the ride. The New York postoffice illuminated, and a general view of the well-known Printing-house Square, add much to the realism of the scenery. Kate Byron as Nora Closer, a fashionable j Irish widow,- intro'duces many elaborated Parisian toilets. The beautiful new.-residence of J. E. Redmond on-North street is rapidly approaching completion, and is a model of architectural beauty. - It will be when completed by far the handsomest residence in the city.

Monday night a sneak theif grabbed an overcoat in Hunter. & Klein's Saloon the same where John Gibbs was dlled, and made way with. it. The overcoat contained a well filled wallet.

The iocket book he retained. .1 (illn Cleitdciicn I)<>;id. John Clendenen is dead. A week ago a statement that such an event would occur within so short' a time would have been received with incredulity and scoffing. The sad death ol yesterday simply brings us nearer the stern fact that death's summons may be as sudden as it is peremptory- It'was not generally known among Mr Clendenen's friends that he was ill; in fact his illness was of such short duration that it could not have attracted much attention. On Sunday be took his regular train out but complained of feeling badly and remarked, at'the time he started that he felt scarcely able for the task of running his train up and b$,ck. At Chicago he became so much worse that he relen quishod his train and rode back 1 down. He was taken to his home a No. 10 Osage street West Side an medical aid summoned, . but poo ' 'Clen" never rallied. A case-of acut pneumonia accompanied by a sinking chill proved too much for his strong constitution to overcome and'yesterdaj at noon, surrounded by his devotee wife and wondering children the spiri of one of the most popular men in the city took its flight. At the report of the death of Mr Clendenen there was .mucfr sorrowin; among his friends and the suddenness of the grim 'monster's attack on so hardy a constitution, was the-subject of- conversation in many a sorrowing group yesterday afternoon. John Clenflenen was respected by every one 'who knew him—warmhearted, ; : generous spirit, he was .everybody's friend-- arid had ' not' an enemy in 1 " the world and his ringing laugh and'merry Jest were welcome.'at all times and places: His 'worth had long 'since been recognized by the Pan Handle company and five or six years .ago he was promoted to the responsible position of passenger conductor and held at the* time of his death charge of one of the most important runs out of the city, .He leaves a wife and two young sons. He was, an honored member of the Uniform Rank K. P., and. a member of the O.
