AN EXHIBIT OF SPRING Some special offerings this week from our overflowing stock of new Spring Goods :— It is customary to call any election a hot one when there is any contest at all, but this time the contest was hot from the caucus to the close of the polls. So much interest had been worked up beforehand in regard to village matters that the contestat the polls could not have been otherwise than warm. The result of it all was that the Republican ticket was elected, except one assessor. Geo. Bilsborrow, Democratic candidate, defeated his Republican opponent, P. W. Bemis. The hot fight was made on trustees and no attention was paid to assessor. Mr. Bilsborrow has always been a popular candidate, especially when he has run for assessor, and his saccess is not surprising under the circumstances.

He and his wife did not live happily together and their disagreements have several times bordered on serious consequences. For a week or more Covey had not lived at home.

He had been at work for Vandegrift & Co., the railroad contractors, and has not been doing anything sinoe the last pay day, February 20, but has drank considerably.

He said he had oome home to stay that night and lay down upon a single bed and went to sleep. His wife went to bed in another room with her little daughter. She did not feel safe with him in the house as he had carried a revolver and had threatened her life. Knowing he was asleep Bhe got up and searched his clothes to get the gun away from him. She failed to find the weapon and again went to bed with her little daughter up stairs. Feeiing comparatively safe she fell asleep. The next thing she realized her husband woke her up by choking her. She attempted to make a noise, but he desisted and told her to keep still and not wake the child nor the boarders. He then went down stairs and Boon called for his wife to come down and mix him a drink. She came down aod he said, "fix me a drink I have not much longer to live." They had some words about it, and she turned to go up stairs and leave him, when she felt something pressed against her neck and turning saw it was a revolver. She dodged, threw up her hands and uttered a terrified scream and fled up the stairway near whioh they both stood. She had no more than gotten out of harm's way when she heard the revolver go off and heard something fall. Returning to the room she saw her husband had shot himself through the head and was unconscious and bleeding profusely. The new styles for 1901 are here and shown today.

Cowan, of this place. We do not expect to The question now arose, where did he get the revolver? It was afterwards learned that after his wife went to sleep he got up, left the house, went to his mother's, got into the house through a back window and got his brother John's revolver from the stand without awakening his brother. Hia mother waB awake and he spent sometime visiting her before he returned to his own home, where he committed the deed just described. The case resembles that of Oscar Bice. Drink and jealousey were the prime causes in each case. The Rioe case was the more horrible from the brutal manner of the killing of his wife and the unsuccessful attempt on his own.
