Pioneer Press special from Shakopee, Minn., says: A dark deed involving three and shrouded in deep mystery was discovered this afternoon in Shak- opee by neighbors looking through the window and seeing John Spear- man, a man 67 years old, sitting by the kitcheo stove dead. Upon inves- tigation the old man's wife was found dead in the corner of the sit- ting room with her skull crushed-and scalp torn from her head. Upstairs in a bed lay their handsome grand- son, a lad of 12 years, with his head cemented to the pillow by blood. Mrs. Spearman lay in a pool of blood, but nowhere could spatters of blood be found on the furniture or walls, nor could the weapon that looked like the instrument of two violent deaths be found, though a hatchet ]ay near the kitchen stove but without blood stains upon it. Spearman sat is a chair without coat or vest with his bare feet upon the kitchen stove hearth and his head thrown back as if asleep. The mur- der probably occnred last Saturday evening for the boy was not in his usual place in St. Mary's choir on Sunday. Spearman was a retired farmer, in comfortable circumstances, but very penurious. He was not at all quarrelsome nor abusive and is not thought to have committed the deed and then suicided. The theory of the murder for robbery is also doubted. The Indians. Under leadership of Rain-in-the- face Sitting Bull's men, with strag- glers numbering 300 are reported making for the Bad Lands.

TEACHERS IN COUNCIL Annual Meeting of the South Dakota Teachers' Association at Sioux Falls. CHARLES Mis county is glorying in its first artesian well. It is at Gas- talia. The flow is struck at 878 feet. Not strong yet, but expected to be better, as usual with these wells. .Now all of us who stay are goiag to live through these little depress- ing incidents, and have a. good time. South Dakota is just as good as it ever that is good enough. Gov. MELLETTE has made another H. Burns, of Dead- wood. The governor will get, so many "kernels" about him that every- body will be liable to at sometime tread on his corns. TEE Aberdeen News suggests J. H. Kyle, oue of the- new indepen- dent senators from Brown county, as a candidate for the United States senate. The state does not suffer from lack of candidates. IE- we only had all the fortunes that have been made during the past ten years by "great moral engines" started to turn the world over by let- ting the people know what a "mean old thing" the HUBONITE is, we should be-----just as poor as we are now!

Aberdeen News: Mr. an'd Mrs. N, T. Smith, of Huron, spent last night in the city the guests of the Sherman. Senator Sherman has introduced the new finance bill into the senate. Its result, if passed, will be to still further expand the currency. The Aberdeen News has advices from Max Bass, from the immigra- tion office, now in Chicago, that rates on relief coal have been re- duced to one half regular by the rail- road companies. The "heaviest snow storms for and the "destroying blizzards" are getting in their work down in Pennsylvania, Virginia, etc., where that sort of thing will have head- quarters hereafter.

T. 0. and various temperance organ- izations are likely to lose largely. This bank is one largely patronized heretofore by Methodist ministers, and their organizations. THE news that the Huron National bank has been compelled to suspend payment, will be heard with regret all over the state. The failure was to a concerted withdrawal of deposits, which continued so rapidly as first to cripple and then to mm the institu- tion. The bank was one of the best outside of Sioux Falls, and the fail- ure will be generally deplored. The officers promise that all depositors and creditors will be cared Sioux Falls Argus-Leader. The kindness sf the above is warm: ly appreciated, though there is great confidence hare that the word "ruin" is much too strong to fit the case as developments prove it to stand. The general expectation is that the bank will resume its work within a very short time.
