They were being taken to West Virginia where they were wanted for burglary. _  A BAD, BLACK BERRY.  Oscar Berry Takes in the Pack-erton People on Paints and German Baptist Publications.  A Disastrous Day to Lee Danner at Diamond Lake.  The  Officer» go i Gafher  i Berryin' but in the Fruit.  Fail to  The Packerton correspondent of the Silver Lake Times said last week of the crookedness of an individual who is credited with being a probable resident of Noble county, that "an intelligent youth by the name of Oscar Berry, hailing from Milford or Ligonier, has been operating this town for some three weeks claiming to be a painter by trade. Last Saturday some victims from the country recognized him as an agent taking subscriptions for periodicals of the German Baptist publication, for which it is said he took in $40.00 on order but never sent in any. After speaking to him about it a warrant was issued and a posse came over on Monday but alas the bird had flown. It was however soon found that the place had suffered the loss of about two weeks board, a lot of paint, varnish brushes, &c., cigars and sundries, and also a pair of shoes. A number of these articles taken would not have been known, only an intimate friend of his who helped smoke the stolen cigars and knew of the transaction told of it after all was gone. As there is but little difference between the man who holds the bag and the one who handles the scoop it will do for consideration. Oscar BeiTy is a young man of small stature, smooth face, and can talk well, rather good looking and will bear watching."  For the honor of the county, we trust that this "peculiar" Berry is not a product of Noble county, but that he hails from Milford or some where else, as the account intimates may be the case. Albion has an Ed. Berry, who, so far as good looks, smooth face, and a sufficiency of chin music is concerned answers the description given of the Packerton Wild Oscar. More than this he has a ministerial look and bearing that might become a peddler of German Baptist publications. But then our Ed. is not that kind of a Berry. He is not a painter, except in so far as the goods in which he deals gives color to the cheeks of his customers and frequently starts them out on the streets with the avowed purpose of "painting the town red," to use an expressive cow-boy phrase. Instead of spiritual food in the shape of German Baptist publications, our Ed-deals in a different kind of spiritual pabulum at ten cents a "nip" at the East Main street saloon.  It is a well-known fact that a number of persons in Albion are in the habit of spending the Sabbath in the woods, or along the banks of our lakes and rivers shooting game. On Sunday last Lee Danner, baker at Franks' restaurant, and a quiet and industrious citizen, in company with Peter Huffer, of York township, and Ed. Berry, of Albion, bar-tender at Willett's saloon, repaired to Diamond Lake, some six miles from town for the purpose of having a day's sport in shooting snipe. They were armed with double-baneled shot-guns. Mr. Danner fired one barrel of his gun, and leaving the other at a full cock, commenced to reload the empty barrel, and while doing so the loaded barrel was discharged sending the full charge of shot into his left hand, tearing the flesh and muscles of the hand in a fearful manner, and taking off the ends of three of his fingers. He was brought to town and Drs. Pickett and Green were summoned who dressed the wounded member. It is a very bad wound, and if it heals without entailing the permanent loss of the hand, Mr, Danner will be fortunate^ At best the hand will necessarily be maimed and crippled. It was an unfortunate day's sport to him.  I will sell at a bargain to an early purchaser, two horses, one good top buggy, one double-seated spring wagon, one dray wagon and one set of harness. Geo. O. Russell.  An Answer Wanted.  Can any one bring us a case of kidney or liver complaint that Electric Bitters will not speedily cure? We say they can not, as thousands of cases already permanently cured and who are daily recommending Electric Bitters, will prove. Bright's Disease, diabetes, weak back, or any urinary complaint quickly cured. They purify ^e blood, regulate the bowels, and act directly on the diseased parts. Every bottle guaranteed. For sale at 50c. a bottle by Huston & Molen.  —All kinds of grain and produce will be bought at the New Store, as soon as suitable arrangements can be made with the B. & O. railroad. It is proposed to make Albion a good grain market The highest market prices will be paid at all times.  A H. Clark; Loomis, Manager.  —The Fort Wayne Journal says that "Lanta S. Cassel, the W^hitley county horse thief, was not caught in Iowa as stated by a contemporary but at Manning, 111. Sheriff All wein captured him at a farm house at 10 o'clock at night Cassel was sweetly sleeping when Allwein ap proached the bed and said, "come Lanta, let us go home." Lanta awoke with a start, yawned and said "well Frank guess we might as well."  —No one from Albion, The Era says, attended the Republican con vention at Auburn, which clearly in dicates that the "hub" is losing her interest in political matters per taining to ^e Republican party. It was once the head and front of the party in this county but the olc actors of that party in that place are mostly gone or are losing their inierest.—Kendallville News.  W^ell, if the actors in the re publican party are losing their in terest, it «doesn't manifest itself any where except in the imagination of our contemporary. Private business may detain delegates from a political convention, sometimes, but a good report will come up l^m the «polls in November, and don't you forget it  A SHATTERED HAND.
