The grand jury of Alleghany Co, in
their presentment hit back at Judge
White as follows: "Thisjury is composed of
business men and artisans from varions
parts of the county, some of whom are
giving their time at great pecuniary loss.
Not one of us is learned in the law, nor
are any of us politicians with personal
ambition who might prefer a record of
speed in the discharge of the business,
rather than justice in tho consideration of
cases laid before ns.
"No member of this jury had friends to
reward or enemies to punish, and the de
cision reached in every case was based on
the evidenee bafore us, the exercise of our
best judgment, and a sincere regard for
the sanctity of our oaths. We held in
high estimation the charge and instruc
tions of the learned Judge presiding, and
in no case were wo u.imindfulof tho sug

time and consideration ot the county's in

respect for the Court, wo may remind the
Court that where in our judgment a bill
was returned "ignoramus,'' and Subse

have become useless bodies, and we beg
to concur in this view, if the conscience
as well as the functions of the jury may
be directwd and controlled.

Sad Affair in Fairview.
An unusually sad affair occurred on
the Thos. Hays farm in Fairview twp.
' i last Saturday night. For some weeks,
Armstrong Jamison has had charge of
McGrew and Brown well, at the head of
the hollow. Late Saturday night or
early Sunday morning the rig was notic
ed to be burning, and some of the
neighbors went to it, but it was then
almost entirely destroyed, and the iron
roof of the boiler house had fallen to the
ashes of the wood work. When Hutchi
son Jamison, arrived at the scene he pried
up the rool aud under it found the body of
his brother burned beyond recognition,
and yet burning. Armstrong had been
in Earns City, Saturday, returned late
that uight aud dul not go to the well
till towards midnight. Nobody who saw
the rig burning had any idea he was there.
The well was run by gas; gasoline
accumulated, and the fire is thojght to
have originated from it. Mr. Jamison
was married to a daughter of Jacob
Ellenberger, who with three children
survive him. lie formerly resided in
Butler, and worked for John Richey.

When you want drugs come to us and be
