Distressing Occurrence.
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 Active.
Father of Muskegon Man Has Had interesting Career - Made Long Overland Journey.
     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.

Accused of Pilfering Money From Letter in Ohio.
     E. D.
