Howard County mail CberUbluK an IIIHUUO Hatred Cornell Nearly KUlluc a Former LoKaiiiport Mobool Girl, The Kokomo Tribune contains tbe following sensational story which Involves a young woman, a former pupil fif the Lojjanaport schools, who ia well remembered by her schoolmates. The Tribune says: "Greenlown, the metropolis of east orn Howard, comes forward with another sensation in that good land of sensations. Marion Pierce made a desperate, cowardly and almost successful attempt tu murder, his sister, Mrs. Frances Thomas. QQ the 8th of August, 3892 as our readers will readily recall. Francos Pierce, the pretty, sixteen-year-old laughter of John Pierce, living a half mile west of Grtentown, aod one of the most prominent residents of the East End. eloped with Will H.Thomas. She slipped out of the house while the amity slept, and with her lover came lo I\okomo whore a license was procured and the couple were married by Grant county justice of the peace. The family were violently opposed to tho match. Young Thomas, a eon of Bruce Thomas near Sycamore, was orbidden the house, and tho girl had ust returned from Logansport school whore she was sent to get her away rom the objectionable lover. On earning of the elopement the father and brother wore furious and murder would have followed had not the -ouple remained In hiding for a time. At length all the family became econciled to the'marrlage except the •Iri'e brother Marion, who had cher. shed a continued and murderous atrod for both his sister and her bus. sand. For some time past Mrs. Pierce, tho mother of the girl, has been In bad oalth and Mrs, Thomas spent much f her time at the old home caring for er and assisting In the household uties. Marlon lives in another houao n tho same farm with his family. It s said ho has never missed an oppor- unity to abuse his sister and alw&y* ad a.tongue-lashing in store every me ho mot her. Marlon has a wife nd one child. Mrs. Thomas endured her brother's mprecations with the beet grace she ould, little dreaming that his bitterest extended to tbe point of murder- ng his OWE sister. She had long nee been forgiven by her parents nd was fully restored to the affec. ona of all members of the family xcept Marlon. Tuesday evening shortly before ark Frances and her mother wont to le barn lot to milk the cows, and bile both were milking, Marion ame up and opened Dre on bis sister Ha a revolver. Both balls grazed her head, one of iem cutting through the fascinator ruwn over her head, tho bullet almost aring through her onr. No quarrel immediately preceded 10 shooting, tho man opening fire Ithout a word of warning. 1'he (,man ran around behind tfle cow for rotection and In this way saved her elf until the revolver was wrenched rom tho hands of tho would be mur- eror. Fortunately the father, John Pierce, us near by and bad ho not snatched 16 emoking weapon from the hand of 10 Infuriated man, he would have had to answer at tho bar of justice for tne murder of his sister. Marion was arrested and kept in the custody of tbe Groentown oiHcors over night. His father at flrat refused to go on bis bond, fearing further violence, but $500 recognizance was pro. ourrod today. Constable Pool made tbo arrost- Tho affair created intense excite, ment in the vicinity and Marlon's strange action is roundly denounced by everybody. It will ba remembered that F. C.

Experiments made in France have shown that the reason the sap-wood in timber is worm-eaten is because of the existence of starch in it. It is tho starch that the insects are after, and they do not attack the hard wood because it contains no starch. The experimenters have devised a method of preserving timber from such'attucks. In the spring they cut a ring through tho hark around tho upper end of the trunk and suppress all buds that are developed there. By autumn the etarch has disappeared from the sapwood and the tree is ready to bo felled, nJ today wad up town purchasing holiday M.Sd JKNXIE BASSET. Washington Ave. and Summit St. Croup Cured.
