THE KICELIB BOTH TRIED TOGETHER.
An Imposing Galaxy ef Legal Talent Arrayed on
Each Side of the Case.
The trial or the Nicely brothers for the
murder of Farmer Umberger was commenced
at Somerset yesterday. Two witnesses were
placed on the stand and gave 'heir story of
the crime. Clothing worn by the accused was
identified. A Tery large crowd is in attend
ance. IFBOM A STAFF COKBESPOXDEXT.l
Sosiebset, May 31. The famous Um
berger murder case went to trial this after
noon. Tne forenoon and a greater part of
the afternoon were spent in getting a jury,
and it is pronounced one of the most intelli
gent juries that ever sat on a murder case in
Somerset county. The only witnesses on
the stand this afternoon were two very im
portant ones. Miss Stern and Mrs. Umberger,
the latter the wife of the murdered man.
The former was employed in the Umber
ger household, find a witness of the tragedy
up to the time the pistol was pointed at
Mr. Umberger, when she fled.
Court adjourned at the conclusion of the
direct examination of Mrs. Umberger. The
story of the murder was listened to in
breathless silence by the immense crowd in
the courtroom. Every seat on the floor and
in the gallery was occupied, and every inch
of available standing room was filled. On
the night of February 27, at a little after
7 o'clock, two men knocked at the
door of Herman Umberger's residence in
Jenner township- and were admitted. They
searched the house on a pretense of having)
a search, warrant to examine all places on
the road. Thev saw the Tjocketbooks in
which Mr. Umberger kept his money, and;
when tne smaller man wno accompanied
Mr. Umberger into the room adjoining the
parlor had returned to the latter, the old'
gentleman slipped the pocketbooks into the
inside pocket ot his Test
t THEIR SCHEME EXPOSED.
On his return to the parlor the smaller oft;
the two men aimed a revolver at him and,
demanded his money or bis lire. Mr. Um
berger threw up his hands and backed. The
man fired five shots. Two struck Mr. Um-,
berger and he reeled into the kitchen and'
fell dead at the feet of his wife, who had
run there to ring tbe big dinner bell.
Miss Stern and Mrs. Umberger's grand-
daughter. Nannie Horner, had run out..
Twenty thousand dollars in cash is the'
amount supposed to have been in the?
pocket books which were taken by the rob
bers, beside papers of great value. The meat
were muffled, as if to protect them from J
coia, out reany to msguise memseives.
Suspicion was directed toward David and'
Joseph Nicely, of Ligonier township, West-
moreland countr. because tnev nad been
seen going in the direction of Nicely's onj
the day of the murder. In court to-day 4
nandkercmeis wnicn were alleged to na,ve
been tied round the face and head of one
were shown and Miss Stern tied them
around the District Attorney's face to show
how they had been worn. Overcoats, boots,
gumboots and a damaged hat were shown.
SOUE STBOSG EVIDENCE.
The latter, the property of one of the
Nicely brothers, was identified by Miss
Stern as having Wen worn by the man who
fired thshots. The" handkerchiefs had also
been tken from one of the Nicely brothers,
jn- fross-examination Miss Stern's testi
nony to ibe effect that she was sure the
Nicely brothers were the men who com
mitted the murder and robbery was greatly
weakened by her inability to give good
reasons for it Yesterday the defendants
elected to be tried separately. The Com
monwealth decided to try David Nicely
For some reason this did not suit the
plans of the defense, and to-day they de
cided to have both tried together. Their
father aud.motb.er and their wives are here.
They sat near the prisoners and looked
much more concerned than either of them.
The prisoners frequently whispered to
gether, and during the cross-examination of
Miss Stern frequently smiled, especially the
smaller one. The only smile that crossed
Miss Stern's countenance was at the comical
Bppearance of the District Attorney when
she tied the handkerchiefs aronnd his head

MAKING INDIAN Y0TEES.
Secretary Noble DcnllnR Ont Farms to the
Bed ill en A Growlnj; PoIIUcbI Factor
In the West The Method
WAsnurGTON', May 31. The Indian
office agents are busily engaged in making
allotments of land under the severalty act
to the members of a number of Indian
tribes throughout the West. Only those
tribes are selected "where a willingness has
been expressed to lold the land in this way,
or when, iu the judgment of the
officials, the Indians are suf
ficiently civilized. At present allotments
are being made to the Indians on the
Qnapaw reservation, in the Indian Terri
torv; at tbe Yankton reservation, in Dakota,
and the Nez Perces reservation, in Idaho.
The work of allotment has been in progress
lor some time at "Warm Springs and Grand
Bound reservations, in Oregon. There has
been a temporary suspension of the work at
Warm Spring, pending the settlement of
the boundary line of that reservation.
Secretary Noble has given authority for
allotments to be made at Devil Lake reser
vation, in Dakota, and at Oneida reserva
tion, in Wisconsin. A patent is issued to
the Indians for 160 acres each, or in case of
grazing land twice that quantity. This
patent exists for 25 years, when the fee
simple of the land is made out to the In
dians. When an Indian gets a patent
to his land he becomes an Ameri
can citizen and entitled to all the
privileges of an American citizen. It in
cludes the important privilege of Toting,
and the Indian vote has become quite an
important factor in politics id the West.
Patents to lands have been issued to Indians
from time to time under treaties, so that,
with the additions to tbe number recently
made under the severalty act, there are
some 15,000 Indians to hold patents to their
There are some 3,000 allotments which
have been prepared, but have not as yet
been approved. As the work progresses the
number of patents increases, with great
rapidity and the time is not far distant
when Indian reservations will be practic
ally unknown. In cases where the Indians
on a reservation have all received patents to
land, the balance of the land will be pur
chased by the Government under agreement
with the Indians.

her appetite was poor, and she experienced

knowing if they did me no good they could

I am almost rid of the awful sores that covered

worse, than that of Hiss Boynton, spoken of in

Diseases Office at Hotel Albemarle, Penn
Avenae and Sixth Street, PJttiburg, Pa.
Dr. Woods has had a large practice in
this branch of his profession without any
public advertising, but as many who might
have been useful and ornate members of
society, fill untimely graves, whom he might
have cured by seasonable treatment and
given them "length of days," he has long
felt it a duty he owes a the afflicted to step
aside from the, restrictions of so-called med
ical etiquette and announce to the public
that he gives special attention vto a much
neglected class of diseases.
Many years ago Dr. Woods went through
the prescribed course of medical study
with his fellow students, received his
diploma and took an equal stand in the
profession with the best of his medical
brethren; yet he is fully convinced from
lengthened observation, that being a grad
uate merely gives one no assurance or
guarantee of a physician's skill. His sub
sequent success in practice is tbe proper
gauge by which to judge of his merits. On
this severe and critical test Dr. Woods has
stood and the elevated position he occupies
in the medical profession makes itclear that
his success has been unusual. Profession
ally Dr. Woods relies on his own powers and
resources, and has achieved a remarkable
degree of perfection in diagnosis, which en
ables him, at a glance, to comprehend the
complications of obscure, new and anoma
lous types of disease. He has given years
of devoted study to his practice and effected
such marvelous cures tbat the greatest as
tonishment has been caused throughout the
country. His services, therefore, are not to
be measured by money; and those who are
afflicted are false to themselves not to avail
themselves to the full of his wonderfully
successful modern method of treatment.
Dr. Woods' treatment being mild and
safe, his patients are in no case subjected to
painful or unpleasant operations, and in the
majority of instances they can pursue the
course of treatment directed at their homes
and without interruption to their usual voca
tions. When possible the doctor prefers to
see his patients; but when this is impossible
bis successful system of treatment by corre
spondence enables the afflicted in all parts
of the world to avail themselves of the bene
fit of his skill at a very small cost. Send 4
cents in stamps for question list. All com
munications sacredly confidential. No
charge for advice. Examinations are also
free to those who desire tfeatment.

A PHENOMENAL HIT.
A Spontaneous. Uprising of Purchasers.
Great $10 Men's Suit
Sale Has Taken
The Town by Storm.
From all parts of the city and surround
ing country the people come to take advan
tage of this remarkable bargain sale. The
news travels like a wild lire -that Kauf
manns' are selling genuine $i and $20
Suits for $10. Everybody who buys one
of these suits goes home delighted with
his bargain and tells his friends and neigh
bors about it. They, too, come and pur
chase, and, in turn, send their acquaintances
who also make a bee? line for the wonder
ful $10 Suit sale and return home all smiles
and packages. Thus the multiplying pro
cess keeps on, and every hour the rush in
creases. There'll be no let up, either, until
every one of these fine $10 Suits has been
disposed of. These goods, as previously
announced, were purchased by us from a
largely overstocked manufacturer of fine
clothing. The price we paid for them aver
ages $9 25, which actually is less than the
value of the material and trimmings of each
suit Seventy-five cents is all we expect to
make per suit, hence $10 is the figure at
which we offer you choice from the entire
line Some 'of the very best patterns and
styles are still here, but don't delay, if you ,
want them, as the rush is bigt and there is
no telling how soon these wonderful bar- -gains
will be sold. A few days, at th'e fur
thest, will finish them.
To give you an idea of what these suits
are we need only say that they are made of
such choice and fashionable materials as
Wide Wales, Scotches, Pinhead Worsteds,
blue, black and brown Corkscrew Worsteds,
light, dark and medium stripes, checks,
plaids and mixtures, etc There are suits
turned out daily by the Pittsburg merchant
tailors at from $30 to $35 which are not
one whit better than these goods at $10.
Depend upon it this is the chance of
chances, the opportunity of opportunities
for gentlemen in need of suits. Every man
should avail himself, of this offer. They
are suits cheap enough for the laborer and
fine enough for the banker. Let nobody,
therefore, stand back.
