Architect M. E. Beebe, of Buffalo, yester
day entered bail in the sum of $20,000 and

is charged with conspiracy.
In the Criminal Court of Allegheny Co.,
last Saturday, Judge Porter read a long
decision remanding Hugh O'Donnell to
jail, to be held without bail on the charge
of murder, as ono of the leaders of the
Homestead riot. The opinion embodies a
review of the occurrences at Homestead,
which culminated in the battle with the
Pinkerton detectives on July 6, and holds
that since the prosecution has sufficiently
identified Hugh O'Donnell as a leader on
the side of the men by whom several de
tectives were killed, since the court is
bound to accept this showing as truthful
until it is put to the proof at the hands of
a jury, bail cannot bo taken.

We can say to oar patrons that the
grinding done by na will be in the
best manner that good machinery
and practical milling can do it, as we
hare in oar employ one of the best
practical millers in the State of Penn
sylvania. We can say without
fear of contradiction that we are
turning oat the best straight grade of
wheat floor in the connty. We
think it an advantage to the farmer
to get his grinding done at oar mill
for these reasons:
FIRST—We make as good wheat
flour as can be manufactured,and
the farmers get the same floor in
exchange as the millionaire
would, were we blessed with
them in this neighborhood.
SECOND—We can do your chop
ping for you, so that yoa are not
compelled to sell your grain at
low prices and buy your chop.
THIRD—We can make the best
backwheat flour ever manufac
tured in the county, as we hare
just completed arranging the
new machinery for same, and it
works like a charm.
FOURTH—We can make you rye
flour if you desire it. Our rye
flour always brings the highest
price in Pittsburg, Ac.
FIFTH—We make as good a corn
meal as there is in the market.
SIXTH—Our Graham floor cannot
be excelled. We manufacture
every article that is in our line
of business, and with* the latest
improved machinery, and best
The farmer will readily see that it
is more profitable to him to patronize
a mill where he can get all his differ
ent kinds of grain ground than to sell
Lis grain and buy bis flour and feed
We don't believe in misrepresenting
goods to the public, therefore do not
put the same kind of flour in four or
five different brands of sacks. We
make a straight grade of flour. The
brand is WHITE ROSE, the same
us given to the farmer in exchange.
We also make the IONA PATENT,
which is a high grade of flour and
stands with the best patents in the
market. It is manufactured oot of
red winter wheat, blended with the
best brand of Minnesota patent which
gives it a superior quality. These
brands of flour and all kinds of mill
feed sold by us at the lowest prices.
We are also in the market for wheat,
rye and buckwheat and will pay the
highest priees for the same.
