Mr. Malono, tho victor, then gave a very pretty exhibition of fancy shots andoleyor original tricks with the balls. This part of tbe exhibition was 'much enjoyed. Following are some of tho shots siren by tho expert iMt night, with full explanation!.

They wero set about a foot behind the aldo pocketi and exactly between the two. The balls wore carefully "fror.an" with the middle pair about four or flve inches apart. The outside balls pointed exactly to tho corner pockets. The cue ball was driven in between the object balls and as a result they all rolled into the pockets as shown by the dotted lines.

The fourth ball goes down the cushion from the shock it got while ••frozen" to tho first object ball and drops into tho No, 6 pocket.

After viewing the remains ol Bernard Hamel, whose disappearance and death hare been chronicled In this paper, the coroner will today return a verdict of accidental death. It la the officer's theory, gathered from the tea. timony given at the inquest, that >be old German went to the vicinity of the did weHwith-a purpose, and lh»t he fell headlong Into the hole. The same accident might have happened to anyone venturing near the well, as the grounl la very irregu'ar about the opening, and there is more or lead of the obstructions and trash usually found neai 1 a wagon repair shop. The body was finally thawed out about noon Sunday, and the corona? examined the remains thoroughly. One silver dollar, a dims, and a nickel were found between the vest and coat near the collar, where they had probably rolled from the vest pocket, when Hamol fell head downward into the pit. The wallet usually carried by the dead man was not to be found. Yesterday morning the police visited the scene of tbe finding of the bofly, and made a careful examination o' the neighborhood, but without result. The pocket book might have dropped from tho old man's pocket accidentally but there are many people who are holding to the murder theory, who will call attention to the fact that the purse is missing as a circumstance pointing to their solution of the deep mystery as the correct one. The coroner's examination showed that Earners nock had not been broken In thu fall. Thfire was sand In his hair, besides the mud on his face, but no signs of any deadly wounds or even serious hurts could be found. An abraaion on his cheek that could easily have resulted from the fall was the only injury noted except scratches on his legs. Crowds of curious people filled Kroegor & Strain's ehop until late Saturday night and at different times Sunday, seeking a sight of the body,and discussing the different points of the terrible mystery that cloaks the death of Hamel so effectually as to defy penetration. The old well and the scene of tho recovery of Hamel's body also had numerous visitors Sunday. The funeral was held at 2 p. m. yesterday from the Hamel residence in Shulutown. Tho G. A, R. had charge of tbe services, and Chaplain W. R Wones Officiated. The bereaved widow, who has been almost prostrated by the blow, has tho sympathy of the entire community.
