\ I HADE HIM WHAT HE WAS.
Some time ago, a saloon keep i
in Dover, Delaware, who patron*
ized his own bar very liberally,
stepped into a back room wher
men 4|$v at work about a pomp
in a Well. The covering bad been
removed, And bo approached to
look down but being very diunk,
he filched in bead foremost. 11*
hadlxtcome no much of a bloat by
the use of strong d> ink. that it was
impossible to extricate him in time
to save bis lite.
Th* re was great excitement in
the town. Meu and w men who
bad never b. en io-ide his saloon
before were the first to ru-h to the
rescue, and offer sympathy to tfle
bereaved family. As he was be
ing dragged from the . well, ; and
stretched out 'lead on the saloon
floor, a wholesale liquor-deu'er
from Philadelphia stepped iu. Af
ter the fiist shock at finding < tie
of his good customers dead, h*
turned to a prominent lady and
said, pointing to the wretchel vic

the boy ’« shoulders, but with no

the vest, but there was another

A Horrible Death.
On last W* dn-sday afternoon *
most horrible death occuied on the
fi<rra of Mr. Wash Pruett, who
lives iu the vicinity of Salem, Ala
A negro woman about twenty
years old, had been plowing du
ring i lie day and at sundown
mounted her mule with the pur-
po«H „f returning home. After
unhitching the mule from the
plow slm left the harness on it as
whs cu ternary. Wh-n in about
half a mile of the house the mule
while walking quietly along be
came startled and jumped.The sud
den movement caused the woman
to slip ofl and iu tailing she caught
•me fo*.t in a truce chaiu and fell
with her head down. At first the
iuu e did uot mu but ou looking
around became frightened and set
oft at high speed. The poor wo
man was unalhe to liberate herself,
and for halt a miljshe was carried
along utterly helpless, one foot
o cisionally sinking the ground,
and h r body violently thrown
j against tiees and fence corners.
When the mule reache I the houae
it stopped. Toe womuo was found
to be honibly bruised aud - mangl

released from the terrible position.
