The work of digging , the grave was proceeding when a neighbor discovered he ghouls and took a doublebarrel shotgun and emptied both loads in, the direction of the fellow guarding the gate, There was a stampede for the wagon, and the party of ghostly night prowlers drove toward Indianapolis at a rapid rate. It is almost certain that some of the buckshot took effect, as an examination of the gate post shows it to be literally filled with holes. Killed Two Men.

While Reports Indicate That Industrie Are Doing More Than Iu December, Tet the Record of Actual Gain Is Small No Improvement Shown In Foreign Trade The Week's Failures. New York, Feb. 12 R. G, Dun & Co. says the improvement in business still appears in many directions, br.t it seems to be in part balanced by loss in others. The gradual decline which be gan sofne time ago and was strength ened a little by the success of the treasury tone has scarcely answered ex pectations. ' Reports of resumption of work con tinue to indicate that the industries are doing more than in December and yet the record of their actual gain is disap pointingly small. The domestic trade does not materially increase, exchanges indicating a decline compared with last year of 19.5 per cent, elsewhere and of 14.9 per cent, at New York, The actual pro duction f pig iron in February last was 99.242 t ns weekly, against 97,087 tons Jan. 1 and 191.2 )1 tons a year ago, Textile manufacturers are gaining a little. Inquiry discloses larger stocks of cotton goods held by dealers than was supposed, and quits a large propor tion of mills are likely to close before long unless orders increase, but the number reported starting again is sev- eral times the, number reported closing. Sales of wool were decidedly larger last . week, 5,776,040.- pounds against 6,855,750 last year, and the , markets were all more active, but this week are comparatively quiet. Foreign trade does not improve, domestic exports at last falling below those of, the corres ponding week last year, though for the year thus far the increase is 10.7' per cent, while the imports are 30 per cent, less than last year. v The failures for the week were 385 in the United States against 222 last year ana 60 m Canada against 44 last year, several being of more than ordinary importance. Out of 2188 commercial failures reported by telegraph in January against 1509 for the same mouth last year, liabilities have been reported for 2102 amounting to $29,843,028 of which 11.589,715 were of manufacturing and 17,234,007 of trading concerns. The South Is Prosperous. Baltimore, Feb. 1 2. In the weekly review of the condition of business in the south The Manufacturers' Record says there is in general a decided im provement with increasing activity in many directions. A large number of southern factories, including rolling mills employing nearly 1000 hands, and iron pipe works that employ 400 or 500, have started np during the week. The Newport News shipyard is engaging 1200 additional hands to work on contracts lately secured. Bank clearings show an improvement ompared with other sections. Sales of fertilizers are very heavy and the spring jobbing trade is promising. .A Chivalrous Negro. Wilmington, Del.. Feb. 12. In the court of general sessions James Soud-ers, a colored man, made an affecting appeal for an aged colored woman. He and Elizabeth Mills had been charged with stealing chickens. Souders said that the bid woman could not stand much punishment, and if the court would allow him he would take her sentence in addition to his own. The chief justice commended him for his action. ; The Mills woman received but one year's imprisonment. Souders received two years' imprisonment and 30 lashes. ; Henry Floyd, also colored, for stealing chickens, was given two years and 30 lashes; Ida Chance, same offense, two years; Tom Fields, same offense, two years and 30 lashes.
