too much heat. Damp walls and clothing

"The country 'is full of swindlers, and
the best rule is to give tin, cold shoulder

wants of their customeri, and are just as
sharp in procuring the' lateskinventions

then there is another valuable piece of
advice in the selection 'of the place to

occasionally the disappearance has the air
of a Teal mystery and demands an investi
gation. The people of Springfield, espe
cially of Leona and a portion of Troy,
have been Speculating much lately ;on a
reported disappearance which . happened
about as follows :.
"On Tuesday before - the Fair: at Troy,
a girl thirteen years old, an adopted
daughter of ANDREW MANN, of Leona,
was . sent after the cows about four o'clock
and has not been seen since.- - The MANN
family, which belongs emphatically to the
order orlow-downs, Eve in a little house
on the premises of I. C. Rae, close to the
road ,between Troy and Leon; and 'at
the edge of a piece of woods. The family
consists of ANDREW MANN and wife,
CUAULKS BURR and wife, a. daughter of
Mawr, and a couple .of twin babies be
longing to Bunn. The' girl DORA, who
did the drudgery of the family and whose
ill treatment was the subject of remark
among the neighbors, was a rather light
and poorly dressed girl. The story told
by the family is, that after being sent-for
the cows she Isom after returned .
_without them. She was barefoot and
bareheaded and dressed - very poorly, and
when urged to put-on her shoes said she
would so, as soon is she bad found the
caws. Going out again, she remained so
long that the people began to be idarmed
about her and thought they heard her
hallooing. Mrs. MANN Bits she went out
and searched for tfie-girl, going over to
the milking yard of Mr. REEL on the oth •
er road and asking VAUGHN, a ticket-of-
leave man at work there if he had seen
DORA. Failing to get any answer she re
turned and an alarm, was given. People
coming from Troy stopped and the
.neighbors were roused and the hillside
Om EATON'S to SALISBURY'S was search
ed, but no trace of the girl was found. In
her excitement Mrs.: MANN claimed she
walked over to the foot of Pisgah to GEo.
Such is the story 'told by the .M.fixas,
and yet they varied the story with so
many improbable' circumstances as to
warrant the suspicion of some foul play.
The girl evidently had disappeared; and
,no clue to her whereabouts has been dis
covered so far. It seems incredible that
she could be lost.
"On Tuesday afternoon, District At.
torney Femme and Constable Nr.t.soti
H. Fun; of this -place, upon the urgent
solicitation of a number of citizens who
consideied that the circumstances attend
log the disappearance of the girl
MANN, from her home on the road be
tween Troy and Leona, justified an in
vestigation, proceeded to the house. The
varying and conflicting stories told by the
MANI% had warranted the gmvest_suspi
"CHARLEY REED, a son of C. REED,
of Leona, 'a boy fourteen years old, who
is attending school at Troy, and who
walks might and morning to- and from
school, .on Tuesday morning, discovered
the body of the girl 'hanging to a small.
pine tree, in a small piece of woods, not
far from the MANN house.: He said noth
ing to any one about it uutik-his return
home, when he told his father and—he
aroused the neighborhood. Some of the
:neighbors gathered and verified the state
ment of the boy, and then went to the
MANN house and sent for Constable Fran
and had the family arrested. Bunn, how
ever, being absent in Armenia, was sent
"As soon as' the news reached Troy of
the finding of the body, a company of onr
citizens, a dozen or so in number, includ
ing Messrs. FANNINt and Poor, Dr. OBE.
cony and others drove over to the prem
iies, arriving there just before twelve
o'clock. Mr. Pisu was sent to East Troy,
where be arrested ANDREW MANN who
was at work at JOHN EATilnuN's. Mrs.
MANN showed great excitement and Hey-,
eral times attempted
. to escape, and at
one time feigned - death. •
Tie company proceeded to the place
where' the body of the girl was found,
which was about fifty rods from the road,
doyen the hillside. A cord was about the
neck end this bad been tied to a small
limb of a small pine tree, so that the head
was about thirty, inches from the ground,
the cord loosely tied about the neck and
the body resting ';upon the knees, the
dress trailing out over the feet as if the
body had been dragged them and hastily
tied to the litnb. People had passed with
in a few' ftet of it many times, and a few
days bereft - its discovery, the odor of de
caying flesh had been detected in the A.-
' einity. The face was black and the .hair
had partially come; out of the head. A
guard was set over the remains and an in
quest was ordered for the morning.
"On Wedneiday morning, P. H. HOFF
MAN, Esq., A. C. FANNING, IL. H. Flax,
and others, went over. to the—premises
and a coroner's jury was enipaneled con:
aisting of A. A. PAITINO, foreman ; J. S.

Dr.. G. W. Gni.oonv made a post mortem
examination of the body, and after a pro

following verdict : "That; the deceased
girl, - Doan MANN, calm tO her, death by a
blow or blows, given by person or persons
unknown, and that after the infliction of
such wound the body wan-dragged to the
