Two brothers, Joseph and Eli Barlow, of
Wilson township, Clinton county, Ohio, went out hunting wild turkeys.
They separated and after a time one of them heard what he supposed was a
turkey. After watching a moment he discovered through a crevice in
the fence something black, which he supposed to be a turkey. He
fired and the object fell. He commenced re-loading, when he heard
a peculiar sound come from the place. He approached, and to his
horror discovered that he had shot his brother through the head.
The wounded man died immediately.

Last evening James Carney, of Clinton
County, Ohio, reported to Sergeant Devine, at the Central Police
Station, that he was a victim of misplaced confidence. His story
was, in effect, that he boarded the Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad
train for Cincinnati yesterday at Chillicothe. A trimly dressed, _olly
speaking fellow got on, and in course of time introduced himself to
Carney as "Harry Hurd." After awhile he produced a
ticket, which he said was a yearly pass over the road, and as he
happened to have two of them, he was willing to dispose of one. It
was offered to Carney for fifteen dollars, and was accepted at
that price. Carney subsequently asked the conductor about
the ticket, and was informed that it was no good. But by this time
Mr. Hurd had disappeared.

Though Eighty-Eight Years of Age E. W. Marble is Still
Father of Muskegon Man Has Had interesting Career - Made Long Overland
Eighty-Eight years of age last Friday,
E. W. Marble, who is making his home at the present time with his
son B. V. Marble, 24 Miller Avenue, has had perhaps as
interesting a career as any resident of Muskegon at the present time.
He has engaged in business in many states and cities
and only ten yeas ago did he give up the management of an active store
in Eaton, Ohio. Since that time he has been journeying throughout
the country visiting with his sons and daughters and enjoying life as
much as he did in his younger years.
Mr. Marble was born in Fayette county,
Pennsylvania, and remained there until he was 19 years of age when he
moved with his parents into Clinton county, Ohio, by the overland route.
Mr. Marble's father was a cabinetmaker and the present head of
the family kept the same occupation for several years until he went into
the mercantile business for himself. In the mercantile business he
remained until 10 years ago and he has been engaged in the occupation in
Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Iowa.
Mr. Marble has been married three times and has
survived all of his wives. He has five children living at the
present time and is also grandfather to four. He still has good
eyesight and can read and carry on a conversation in ready style.
He has a wonderful memory of his boyhood days and is really a very able
man considering his age.

MONTROSE MAN IN UNCLE SAM'S TOILS
E. D. Smith Accused of Pilfering Money From Letter in Ohio.
E. D. Smith, a prominent resident of
Clinton county, Ohio was arrested today at Montrose by Deputy United
States Marshal Thomas Clark on the charge of taking another
person's mail for a post-office in Clinton county, Ohio, pilfering a
$500 check out of one of the letters, forging the signature of the party
to whom the check was made payable and using the money to come West and
start in business in Colorado.
Smith was a prominent lodge man and had become
very popular in Montrose during his brief residence there. He told
Montrose people after the warrant was served on him this morning that he
had just sold a large shipment of apples and had decided to take a trip
back to Ohio. He did not tell them that he was a prisoner with a
serious charge hanging over his head, and some of the prominent people
of the place were at the train to see him off.
