A little over one year ago Mrs. Brown, living near Newhope, Brown County, Ohio, gave birth to three children - two girls and one boy.  These children are all alive now, and are sprightly, healthy children.  Two weeks ago from this time (May 16) Mrs. Turner, not to be outdone by her neighbor, gave birth to three bouncing boys - all of whom are living, sound and healthy.  The strange part of the matter is, both these women live within two miles of each other, which seems to suggest the idea of a sort of family strife in that neighborhood.  These children weighed, soon after birth 7 1/2 pounds each - 21 1/2 pounds for the three.

FATAL FAMILY FEUD
Double Murder in a Court Room at Hammersville, Ohio, Caused by An Unjust Will.
     HAMERSVILLE, OHIO, Sept. 10.  A terrible tragedy occurred here during the trial of the case of George Barngrover vs. Joseph Hiller, before Justice Vandament.  A Mr. Hilerdied some months ago leaving a will in which he devised most of his property to two of his sons and two daughters, to the exclusion of other children.  There has been talk of contesting the will and much bitterness has been manifested.  This was a case for damages under an alleged breach of contract between Joseph Hiler and Barngrover, who was one of the sons-in-law of Mr. Hiler.  During the trial Constable I. N. Allen, another son-in-law stepped to the door, when a pistol shot was heard.  Allen
CAME STAGGERING INTO THE ROOM
and fell across the chair, exclaiming:  "John Hiler did it."  Before the terrorized spectators could realize what had happened the murderer was seen standing in the middle of the crowded court room, and fired a second shot, which took effect in the right breast of George Barngrover, passing entirely through his body.  The excitement was indescrible, the court room being crowded with men and women.  As Hiler rushed from the court room into the darkness he was heard to remark:  "I have
LOADS FOR TWO MORE MEN."
It is understood that he meant by the remark John Hiler, jr. cousin to the murderer, and an important witness in the case, and Attorney W. F. McBeth, who has charge of the case for the plaintiff.  The town is aroused and searching for the murderer, who is still at large.
