His death was caused by a fall he received last Christmas which resulted in spinal disease terminating in death. . The deceased was the father of Joshua Sweet, of near Ripley, this county. Another son is Bev. S. 8. Sweet, ot Macon Oeorgia. At the close of the case of the State T8. Winebrenner it was understood that on Friday of last week sentence would be passed upon "Jack" Ryan, the self-confessed wrecker, and the main witness against the defendant in the case of the State vs. Winebrenner. On Thursday last Mrs. Ryan, mother of "Jack," who seems to be a very estimable ledy, obtained an interview with judge McBride and said that her son was desirous of making a clean breast of the^ whole affair—to give a revised edition of the truth as it were. This becoming known tbe court-room was again packed on Friday at 10 o'clock a. m., when Ryan was brought into court. Judg»^ Sinclair, of Fort Wayne, appeared for the defendant Ryan, and upon the call ing of the case entered a motion to withdraw the plea of guilty heretofore made in the case and to substitute that of not gailty. In support ot this motion he presented the affidavit ot Ryan that at the time ho acknowledged his guilt he was without counsel, and laboring under great fear of being lynched by the people of Noble county and vicinity, and acted on tbe spur of the moment without time or opportunity of knowing what was best to be done for the preservation of bis life at the time, from mob violence. Before passing upon this motion Judge McBride took occasion to show that at no time from Ryan's arrest to the p; osent time, was there a particle ot evidence to show that there was any danger of mob violence in Noble county, and asserted that at any time Ryan could have been taken through any or every township in the county without any danger to his person from mobs^ The motion was overruled and exceptions taken. Ryan was then sworn as to bis ability to employ counsel, and it being disclosed that he was without means. Judge Sinclair and Henry Cole-rick, ot Fort Wayne, were assigned him. While being questioned on tbe stand it became evident that be would adhere to his statements made before with the qualification that he was not guilty, as he did nothiner and did not conspire with others in wrecking the train. After listening for a plea for mercy on the part of Judge Sinclair, asking for a mitigation of punishment, Judge McBride pronounced sentence, which was nine years in the states prison and disfranchisement for a period of twenty-five years. A motion for a new trial was made and overruled* and thus the case ended. When the gates of the penitentiary close upon the prisoner, the last Scene of the last Act of "Ryan, the Train-Wrecker," will have been enacted. , For Scarlet and Tjphold Veverf), Diphiheri», SaU< ▼ation, Ulcerated Sore Throat, Small Pox, Measles, and aU Contag;foa8 Diseases.

The merits ol Athlophobos as a specfic for Rheumatism and Neuralgia are best proved by the fact that it cures when other treatment fails: Says Mr. G. G. Thompson, of New Haven : "For twelve years I had been a sufferer from Rheumatic Neuralgia, which attacked me suddenly without warning, destroying all hope of sleep or rest. I have tried hundreds of remedies. With the exception of Athlophoros not one of them afforded me the slightest benefit. It has done me more good than all the other remedies combined." , ■ — We are in receipt of a letter from Dr. James E.
