Last May, Henry Schmale sold out his
store on Susquehanna street, to a young man
named Rhinehart Keefer. 31r. Keefer took
possession, and has since been doing a very
good business. On last Wednesday night he
came in at about nine o'clock and went up..
stairs. In a few moments the inmates of the
house heard two reports of a pistol in rapid
succession. Upon going to Mr. Keefer's room
they found the door locked. Entrance was
gained by means of a window, and
the unfortunate man was found lying
on the bed dead. e had shot himself almost
directly through th heart. The' suicide was
no doubt preeclit ed, as when Mr. Keefer
came in he went to his desk where he kept
his pistol, and going up-stairs immediately
shot himself. The weapon was found in his
Land. No cause can be assigned for the act.

. g,ive no reason why hci• should
have taken his life. It is said that he had a
note to meet yesterday, but he had nearly
money enoughto settle it. H e has been heard
to say that ti,was sorry he bought the store,
but why he could not tell, as his business was
as good as could be expected.

[From Speech of Senator Conkling at Utica.]
Tile Democratic managers everywhere be
tray a fidgetty anxiety to hurry out of sight the
party'record of-recent years,but the footprints
are indelible. The Republican party, on the
other hand, craves scrutiny of its career.- Its
record of fifteen years has been brief yet bright.
It has established political and religious lib,.
erty for all men everywhere within its reach.
It has added the Pacific Railroad,and opening
up new fields of enterprise. During all its
good work it has constantly been hindered
and assailed by its opponent; during the great
war for the Union it was never „for an hour,
free fn,n a galling fire from behind. Since the
war the party has gone quietly to 'work to re
duce the debt and the taxes. In this connect,
Conkling said : " The present Admin
