An <><l(l Case.
Some years ago a young man named
Solomon Ely came to this county from
Armstrong Co., and worked for some
farmers down the three-degree road,
where he became acquainted with
Jeanuette Viock. Then he secured a
job in the Plate Glass Works and came
to Butler.
Last December he and Jeannette,
were married, and they went to house
keeping in one ot Esq. Kennedy's
houses, near the plank road.
But something seemed to be the
matter, they were not happy, and their
married life came to an end ou Satur
day, the 25th of March last. Ely came
home from his work that evening as
usual about 6p. m. got the key of the
house at a neighbor's, where his wife
had left it, fonnd his supper on the
table, and ate it, drank freely of the
coffee, and five minutes after was help
lessly sick.
He lay by himself all night in the
house, vomiting freely. He felt better
next day.walked down to Viock's to see
if his wife was there, found her and ac
cused her of poisoning him, came back
and slept in the house that night, and
next morning took the coffee pot, and
gave it to the District Attorney, and
went to his home in Armstrong Co.,
and has not been a well man since;
while his wife took their household
goods and went home. The contents
of the coffee pot were analyzed by Dr.
Zimmerman, who found arsenic in them;
and on Saturday last Ely made an infor
mation against his wife, and she was
She had a hearing before Esq. Ander
son. Monday, and was the only person
in the room who was unconcerned and
smiling, while her husband. Dr. Zim
merman and the County Detective were
giving their evidence. She seemed to
consider the whole affair a joke.
The Esq. held her for court, and she
was taken back to jail, but has since
secured bail.
Tlic 15if; Circus.
Covington and Cincinnati were both
circus mad yesterday, and the Wallace
Show, the first of the season in these
parts, found the multitude eager and
anxious to accord them a welcome, and
herald with loud acclaim the excellence
of the performance, testifying not alone
by their presence, but by the most
demonstrative applause, that the show
was thoroughly to their liking, the one
regret being that its stay in the city
was of snch short duration.
The splendid street parade, given
eaily in the day, undoubtedly hail much
to do with the attendances, as it may
be said, and with emphasis, that none
of the many shows on either side of the
riyer within the past few years have
ever exhibited on the streets such a
piocession of magnificent horses, beau
tiful women, bright, clean and really
gorgeous costumes, as those shown yes
terday by the Wallace management.
The performances were, it is pleasant
to add, thoroughly in keeping with the
promise cf the parade, and nothing
equaling them has been presented to
local circus goers within a decade—Cin
cinnati Commercial Gazette.
Comes to Butler, Thursday, May 18th.
After weeks of negotiations, the man
agement of the Pittsburg Grand Ojwjra
House has finally succeeded in securing
permission to produce the famous Madi
son Square Theater success, "Saints and
Sinners", and that noble drama will be
seen at that house next week. From all
accounts this must be a truly remark
able play. It was written by the famous
English aulhor, Henry Arthur Jones,
and it was originally brought out in
this country at the Madison Square
Theater in New York, where was play
ed for an entire year without interrup
tion. During that time the play and
its wonderful story was the text for the
sermons of almost every minister in
New York. While in no sense a
"preachy" play "Saints and Sinners"
holds up the mirroi to human nature,
and teaches a great moral lesson by the
very force of its intensely dramatic
story. The great play, "Saints and
Sinners". and Mr. Kendall, will be seen
every afternoon and evening next week.
To Farmers
A great many farmers throughout But
ler county ship their grain by freight to
our Flour Mills at Butler. We cull at
the freight dejiot for grain, take it to our
mill and return the flour and feed by

charges for hauling from and to tlia
station. This is a great advantage to the
farmers as it practically locates a No. 1
flour mill at every station. If anybody is
entitled to good bread, it surely is the
producer of the grain Ship in a grist

Itusiness of Interest to
liutU'i- l'enple.
Since the Water company has changed
ownership we have expended a large
amount of money in inproving the plant
and the water supply, as the pr_ ent
patrons know,that there cannot be bet
ter water in the state than the water fur
nished by the company now.
Now the Butler Water coui'iany have
decided to get more business i. it is to be
Jhad in the city, and in order to do that
have decided to meet the people who
wish to become patrons more than half
way. Heretofore it has been a serious
thought that the people couldn't afford
to put the water in (not the expense of
the water), but the cost of connecting,
laying pipes, etc. If we can get from
fifty (50) to one hundred (100) new con
sumers we will make you this special
We will tap the main, insert the co
oration cock, furnish and lay the pipe to
the sideAalk, furnish the side walk cock
and shut off box, and in fact furnish all
labor and fittings to the curb line, where
a main passes the house, and sell the
same to you for the small sum of fifty
(50) cents.
It matters not whether you are 011 a
pavt-1 street or otherwise the expense is
110 more to you. Where the expense
would ordinarily be from #lO to S3O we
make it to you now for 50 cents, provid
ing you are willing to sign a contract for
two years.
Don't be afraid to ask questions, the
Water company's employees will answer
them all to the best of their ability.

three semi-annual P emlums on his Policy,
giving a Premium note for the fourth semi

Premium note, nor any Premiums in i In

claims forfeited, and I knew no better, until
