a complete wreck and his stock of
clothing, etc , a tola! loss. All the
fehelviig, lablt-s, doks. and clothing
in the rear eud of tne ru.ua were re
duced to ashes, the plaster had drop
ped from the waits of the rear end and
also from the ceiling of the entire
room, the joists were b.»d!y charred,as
were also the balance of the shelving
and tables, lbs show cases were de
stroyed, and the otoc-k of clothing and
g *uts furnirbiug goods so ruiued by
fire and water as to be deemed a to
tal loss, Mr. Babny says that tbe
value of bis stock was about $7 000,
and that be c»rried $4,000 insurance
in tbe McJunkin agency. He says
that tbe plaster cf the ceiling has
been tumbling down upou ibem in
small pieces all winter and thinks
that the fire was caused by a piece of
plaster bitting a glass lamp, which
bung near the stove, and knocking it
against the stove, iu which a gas fire
was burning.
The damage to tho Reiber building
will amount to several hundred dol
lars, and that to the Miller buildiug
one or two hundred.
There are two windows in tbe rear
eud of the store-room, with shutters,
which were closed every night, but
yet tbe buildiug may baye been set
afire from the outside, as two at
tempts have lately been made to fire
tbe Robiuson stole room, next door,
f.-orn the outside—oue by throwing
lighted paper through tbe rear win
dow, now closed up, aud the other by
attaching a fu-e made of lamp wicks
to a box of matches, pushing it uuder
the door to some waste paper and
wood, and then firing the fuse, but
the fuse went out after burning past
the door.

An Ohio Romance.
A crime of thirty yeara ai»o has
jueit been brought to public attention
again in southern Ohio by the discov
ery aad arrest of the principil of the
affair, win for yearn bas been an uu-
Buspected, but shiftless*, Ross couuty
farmer. There is a good deal of ro
mance in tbe story, and altogether it
is an unn«ually interesting one Iu
1855, when tho canals were still mar
vels in Ohio, the Helen R. was oue
of tbe neatest boats on tbe Muskin
gum. Sbe was captained by* Rich
ard Cassiboon, a jolly fellow, and a
man who apparently made more mon
ey out of his calling tbau any other
captaiu between the lake aud tbe
river. But be drank, and when in
bis cups was quarrelsome, seeming
to fiud his chief amusement in abus
ing his wife, a comely, kiud-hearted
woman whom everybody liked.
In the fall of '55, while the Helen
R was lying idle at Dresden Junc
tion. Casiboon one day quarreled
with his wife and attempted to strike
ber. William Hyde, who happened
to be uer.r, iuterfered, and in tbe
quarrel that followed Hyde was kill
Casiboon was promptly arrested,
and so strong waa the feeling against
him that, had an immedia'e trial fol
lowed, he would have doubtless paid
the death penalty; but the' beariug
was deferred e-ud the got off
with a sentence of 6 years in the peni
tentiary on a verdict of manslaugh
ter. Between 'be time of his convic
tion and sentence aud the day fixed
for his removal to the penitentiary
Casiboon effected his escape from the
Mu.-kinguin County Jail. Four other
prisoners accompanied him, but were
afterward apprehendeded Casiboon,
however, evaded tho detectives, and
from that time until his arrest b"re
a few davs ago wua never heard of.

under nn assumed name,and fought for
his couuiry uut.il near the close of the
war, when bo wounded, and has
ever nine drawn a peiiaiou of $24
per mouth.
During the first year of the war
Casiboorj met no one in the army
whom he knew, bin afrcr that tbere
recruits from Mu-kingum county, and
tbey mcogniz"d their comrade an
Dick Caartiboon, the fugitive from
justice. iJui men were not so partic
ular just theu, and soldiers were
needed uud tbe crime of the canal
boatmau was condoned.
When tbe war ended some of tbo6e
who recognized tbe criminal bad been
laid away in Southern toil, and those
who were spared told no taleß because
Caaniboon bad fongbt well in a cause
dear to tbem. But years of peaoe
dimmed tbe memories of war, and as
the brother of tbe reordered man,
wbo bad never ceased to search for
tbe slayer of bis kinsman, was living,
it was decided to mike tbe facts
known. One afternoon last week two
gentleman with an official appearance
arrived at ChilHcotbH. The one was
Itafi* Ifrrttol, Sheriff oT MuskUrgum
county, and the other G. R. Warner,
Chitf of Police of Zacesville. They
inquired for Isaac, of whom they only
knew that he received his mail at
VV slier.
The two men drove to Massieville,
whence they were directed IO the
hills back ot Franklin, and there, a
what is kuovvn as Snake Hollow,
they found their mau.
Brown's home was a cabin on the
hillside, his faroi a 100 acre tract so
unproductive that its tnle is still in
the Government Isaac Brown was
l>iek Cassiboon His poverty was
shared by a wife, said to be bis third,
and three children, the eldest grown,
the youngest but 5. Brown was
f-vund gray, old and sick. The family
wus half-starved in the miserable
home benide which the Penitentiary
is a palace.
Uuder pretense of business connect
ed with his pension Brown was coax
ed Ma-sieville, where he was told be
was under arrest, and his identity
rtood reyealed. He made no demon
stration, 8 id atter H good supper ex
pressed bis willinguess to go at once
to Z iuesviiU aud receive his punish
meut for a crime committed 33 years
a«o. Hyde's brother, who still re
tides at Dresden, iutends to push the
CdSe, but there is a pretty general
feeliug that Dick Cassiboou as Isaac
Browu atoued by his war record for
an unintentional crime, and Gov.
Foraker will be asked to pardon him,
and will doubtless do so.
