S The icemen are plucking up spirit considerably since yesterday morning and are beginning to entertain hopes for the future. C. M. Eanna purchased, yesterday of Mrs. Chas. Marshall, the old Ewsng homestead on North street., ionsideration $3,500. There-never was. an offer made of such a truly valuable bargain as the real huckaback towels at 29 cents a The jury found Mart Shaffer guilty and affixed his punishment at -fifteen I years in the penitentiary. Consider- j ing the age of the prisoner, fifty-six years, this is practically a life sentence, and is. somewhat .higher than, generally anticipated, but as one of the«jurors remarked when explaining his position, ' 'This thing of so many murders in Cass county has got to be stopped, and it is only by such sentences that a lesson is imparted to others. Two year sentences don't go." For many hours six of the jurymen held out for a twenty-one years sentence—the limit; some wanted to place the punishment at Qfteen years, while one or two timidly suggested a two years sentence. The latter proposition met with little encouragement. Along towards morning an agreement was made and it was decided to give the prisoner a fifteen years sentence. While some surprise is expressed at the length of the sentence it seems to meet with the approval of every one. When court convened at 9 o'clock yesterday 'morning the jury filed ia after an absence of twenty-one hours. The foreman handed up the following verdict which the jurymen all acknowledged affirmatively. ' 'We the jury in . the case 1 of the State of Indiana vs. Martin V. Shaffer, find the defendant guilty of manslaughter as charged in the indict* ment.and fix his sentence as fifteen years of penal servitude in'the northern prison." A motion for a' new trial was then made by the defense and the prisoner will not be taken to the penitentiary until the motion is decided. If the motion is overruled Shaffer will be immediately taken North, HE IS SICK IN BED. GENUINE] Red "Letter Sale. It will eclipse all are former efforts.

Among-««th& eighteen indictments already returned is one charging Charles.U. ('-Barney'') Klein with, murder in the first degree. As the crime thus charged . is an unbailable one, Klein's bond : of $10,000 is insufficient to Jsave him from the prison cell. But, as has been heretofore noted Barney's rheumatism is of such a character that it was a matter of doubt whether or not his .condition would permit his confinement within the inhospitable confines of the county jail. Yesterday a commission of physicians together with several officers of the law waited on Klein 'at his 'home and finding the murderer in bed complaining' grievously of his aches and pains a report was made that the man's condition was such that incarceration in the jail would not be quite the thing, so, until he sees fit to recover from his present attack[of. rheumatism, Klein will rest quietly in his own bed and can turn up his nose at prison bars. Of course he will be placed under proper guard while thus waiting convalesence. To the Public. The article in the Logansport Reporter last night in regard to the difficulty between the Printer's Union and that paper is false in every particular. The public will be fully enlightened as to the true facts in the case both .pro and con in the near future. When he states the urfiloa is forced by the proprietors of the different offices to cause: the boycott it is false. The proprietors . do not run Logansport Typographical Union No. 196 in any particular, nor do they believe in employing unskilled labor. They want printers and have them. We defj J. E. Sutton to point to a printer 4ow out of employment that is a drunkard or a bum. We also have a number of ladies in our Union; does he call them drunkards?

Natural that they should say so—but we guarantee it equal to any flour made. Those who have used it are .delighted with it. Those who have not can prove its quality in this way:— Try a fir^t sack, and if you do not find it equal to the best, we'll buy it back, less the first baking, at just the price you paid us for the whole. A costly guarantee if it is not the best, for last week we sold 10,500 Pounds, "Snow Ball" is made from selected wheat, ground in a way that makes it the finest flour offered in Logansport. The price will please consumers. Others we do not cater to, M, McCaflrey & Co. sia.
