The jury ate alone. When dinner was finished the servants entered the room again accompanied this time by the officers and the table was cleared of Tood and dishes. When the door was opened for the servants to carry out the remnants of the dinner one jury Man stood in the Center of the floor talking to an officer two or three i h Coats off Cigar in their Mouths and chairs upped l ick against the Wall were disposing themselves for an after dinner siesta. The remainder were in comfortable positions engaged in waging a desperate War against the hot weather with ians. The paper Lor making ballots had been used up and the jury was delightfully nonchalant Over the fact. Judge Nell son. In conversation with a world reporter yesterday Forenoon said. In reference to the jury it la composed of g of men men of judgment. There 1» two or three Persona in the panel not quite so Sharp and discerning a the others but on the average it la a far better jury than is usually to tie found. I am satisfied that they will return a verdict according to the evidence. It did not appear whether or no Hie Honor meant that a i agreement would be according to the evidence. A delightful thing happened a few minute alter 4 Oclock. Some heathenism person set afloat the probable Story that or. Jeffrey had been overcome by the heat and bad Tallen in a fit and that a doctor bad been sent for. Accordingly a number of intelligent people Roshod up stain to see about it. They saw a procession of the antique and horrible style. The court of sessions jury room having a Western exposure was horribly hot beyond endurance without a Piazza or other Martel Box and the jury demanded to be taken acro a the Hail to their own room.

Carpenter who larded tue dirty floor next to the last grinned a Little in response or. Jeffrey who brought up the rear paced with grave and measure step and cast Down eyes. There bad been a Rumor test the jurors bad had an election for an officer to preside Over their deliberation. It a of course discredited by the Csc that Tio genuine news of such an event coaids get out except under extraordinary circumstances. But those who held to it found corroboration in the fact that or. Jeffrey on the Occi it Don of this transmigration stepped Forth the last with or. Carpenter Jast before him and in one other fact namely in the jury room vacated a scrap of Paihr a picked up with the word Carpenter written on it in or. Jeffreys handwriting. The hypothesis of coarse a that this was a ballot that or. Carpenter was voted for by or. Jeffrey and that the Fornor being esteemed for the defendant and the latter for the plaintiff sueae two gentlemen were opposing candidates Tor some office All which has symptoms of ingenuity. But it a a part of the doing of the Day and therefore Worth chronicling though the fact that t or. Jeffrey a been elected clerk of the Ijuro rather contest its result.

The to papers were generally torn in bit so that Itil r waa a Tabor of indulge Diligence Aud extremely vague result to make Maytbin gout it of them.

No communication i Dob Nril of s views or was not Zoino to Send or them a sick jury Man a talk with Tilton. How the wretch i jury men spent sunday May be Learned from perusing the following special to the Cincinnati commercial we have spent sunday about court until 9 Oclock at night waiting for the jury to appear with their verdict. I has not yet come and judge Nei Unn who went borne late this afternoon has just sent us word that he will transact no Blaine s with the jury after thi3 hour. So to must return to Morrow. Soon alter 10 o clock this morning his Honor and a itself made our appearance at the court House. To Learned from the officers in charge of the Jory that there waa nothing new that no communications had been sent out i run to jury room and no requests addressed to bin Honor. The jurors bad received clean Linen supplies of cigars and other Nece amp Sarles. They had Alio been allowed to change Quarter Aud thus had seen red a passing glimpse of the world beyond the jury room. Hia Honor did not formally open court to Day. He established himself Lis chamber announced that he would Sun there All Day in waiting upon the jury and notified them to that effect. He Hod Nade Grep ration to notify interested parties the jury sent him new they had reached a verdict. Carriage were kept in waiting for that work and there would be an hours delay for oboe to be sent for. On their arrival he would formally open the court order the jury to make their appearance and receive from Theiu the verdict which would thereupon a regularly entered and the trial closed. There was. However but Little Prospect of a verdict during the Day. The jury had already Given the order for their dinner which they would not have done Dunlea they expected to remain in rough the Day. The Coart room proper has not been open to Day and Only reporter lawyers and other privileged person have been allowed Access to certain rooms in the court House. Officers Are stationed at every approach to the Vicinity of the jury room and police guard the onside Green fronting it. The jury men spent their time in arguing with each other. They have been often seen in groups of All sizes. Some Timo their discussions Are evidently very emerge tic. Judge Veilson continues obstinate in i determination not to Send Tor the Lury it they stay out for a week. Dont fret a bit said judge veils of the jury Are not yet ready. Ive bad a Good Deal of experience with juries and hive noticed Bow they work. Finn every Man explains his undigested theory upon such evidence As Haa particularly impressed him. Being twelve men that takes a Day or two on a voluminous Case and allowing fur the desultory discussion of each theory meal times and aloes. Beu they find How they at Anu. And tackle each other with argument and separate into group Aud a amp be it out. The i Rueoa of the Lorena an of the jury has made it Doob Fui whether he could be retained in the jury rpm but be has made no ppe for Relief. Several other of the Euroia Bod been temporarily ill. The stories about signal from the Jar room Are absurd. The Foreman was Wen to rub Bis head seven Timea and forthwith it was bet aided that ibis meant a demand for 7,00u. It would be a As though the incarcerated jury occasionally suffered from ennui. At one moment till afternoon i joined the crowd staring at the Distant we Dow of their room. Only one of them was visible Bat As soon a the poor discerned the familiar personality of Tala por tin ii of the Cincinnati commercial he go Allej to Tho others woo rushed Fol Karh and Loving stared at me till i disappeared. At the hour of my leaving c Urt la night a Large outside crowd was staring at the jury the open doors and windows of Bis Church. He was in the Middle of his Sermon and of noorae i could not get in but i got where looking through the front door i could see him away Back on Bla platform. He was in Superb form appearing like a Young Man in the first Flash of Power just As be did at his discourse lost Friday evening. The first sentence i caught was one in which be reasonably alluded to the sympathetic Hoet of celestial spirits by which mortals Sre encompassed. I staid Only a Lew minutes but Bis trumpet tones continued to Pierce the air As i moved away. Unsurpassed Ushers. Wondrous feats of Murray and Caldwell self appointed Ushers of the Brooklyn court room their Points of contrast. The near York Herald gives s Fanny sket Latch of two of the Plymouth Brethren who Bare been acting As Ushers during the trial for Over a Hundred Day two men named respectively Murray and Caldwell Hare Arodd a Nahera in the Curt room seating the ladies and the Brethren Aud friends of Plymouth eur cd. Murrey is a Well to do merchant in new York and Caldwell is a Speculator in paintings and engravings. Murrey is a Dapper sort of person with a bark Mustache a fresh complexion and a Quick manner. In order to exercise a sort of official authority As user be borrowed a Deputy sheriff s shield which he wears on the front of his coat. Caldwell is a Tali heavy Inao with a Burnside pattern of Mustache and whiskers dresses Woll and talks to the la diet in a fatherly Way. He was very attentive to Bessie Turner while that blonde Siren frequented la court room. He a a More dignity than Murray but Leas influence. The latter accepts no fee nor Reward the former receives $2 50 per Day for i services from the 1lymonth Brethren who have raised a fund to defray certain expenses of the trial. These two men have become so expert in ushering people to place in the body of the court room Aud finding seats for them that Tlell performances during the pressing Daj a of the past week have been positively marvellous. The writer has seen the court room filled to All appearances. In every part As Early As 10 Oclock in the morning and to his extreme astonishment after the lapse of an hour in ring which several Hundred persons More entered and found room a Long Stream of the Brethren have come in and lie ext comfortably seated by this surprising pair of Ushers. They conjure up chairs and Camp stools out of the very floor. They Stow away people in seemingly inaccessible places. No lady had to stand during All the Post week while Murray and Caldwell were around. To their credit it Muat be said that try have worked Bard and Well and the Means of saving a great Deal of contusion which must have otherwise out in for every Kbuor Hud to Jln-1 a scat for himself. The dexterity of these self appointed usher. In handling Eim Frk and Camp stools is truly amazing. Caldwell has been seen to spin a Camp Stool Over to beads of people and land it in a vacant spot with unerring precision. To Send a lady spinning after the Camp Stool would Serin to be a feat equally easy to him. In the matter of arranging chairs they have grown proficient. Daily at lunch time the outgoing audience Knock the chair about until the floor appear to be in p perfect state of Cha a. Presto the As ton filed stranger sees Tho chm re and amp Stool Tail into regular alignment like soldiers on Parade. Caldwell gives a tip Here and Murray a tip there to a few chairs and Sud a sort of magnetic current through All the rest and brings their into line in an in to ant.

Here let me observe that death from lightning must be painless. The nerves of the human body do not convey a sensation of pain instantly to the nerve Center. There i an appreciable interval before we Are cog Nizet of what bs3 happened. The time of an electric Flash i a Small traction of this interval. While the velocity of a nervous sensation of min is Lesa than a Hundred feet a second that of electricity varying under different circamstance6, is Many thousand times greater. We Are killed More we know in yet there a probably s greater dread of death from Tala cause than from Al witness Way. The it a dub of Willis Pound of Holland Catt train avre Ceres did it hiding the old victims body evidence of a witness. The grand rapids Eagle thus tells the Story of the murder of old Willis Pound which has created great excitement in the locality where it occurred or. Willis Pound was an old Bachelor about 50 years old. Living alone on his farm of 40 scree four Melee North of Holland City. He waa an eccentric Man very much disposed to attend strictly to his own affairs and to have other people do likewise. He had resided on Hia place Tor several years having originally come to thie locality from Branch county in Thia state where be is said to Nave Frienda living. Pound was an important wine of for the people in the Case against John ii. Fuller and Melvin Fuller for throwing a train from the track on the Michigan Lake Shore Railroad in the Spring of 1874. At the examination of i he parties which took place Jast Winter Pound testified very unwillingly but it a known that when the Case came up Tor trial be would make a Strong Case against the prisoner. In the mean awhile the two fullers father and son were out on bail. They bad made several attempts to h re Ai ill Rae against them to Tail to appear at the trial Sod it a few supposed that Pound had been approached in a like manner. The fullers bad i fitted at their ditch tiny of punishing anyone that a bold a poor against them Bat these threats were u get considered of any consequence. Pound Siso was reported to be Well supplied with Money and among his peculiarities is Sid to have carried it about Hia hereon sometimes having several thousand dollars in his packets. This snoopy to also an incentive Lor his murder. Directly opposite pounds Cabin lived John h. Fuller and his son Melvin. They bad resided on their farm of 160 for about three years having come to this place from Wisconsin. 7 Bey Bro Glt some Money Here Aud on their arrival a once began work in the Wood nod at the present time Hare 30 or 40 acres of Clearing with Good buildings an Orchard Aud every indication that they intended to make Good tanners. Those parties Are the murderers of Pound. They appear to have Well merited their reputation of being a hard lot. But a Short time after their arrival hero they began to be frequent visitors at our Justice so courts but a the matters in which they were involved were mainly civil suit with one or two a amp Aalt Sud Battery cases their reputations were cot much worse than that of any others in the North Woods. Last summer however the wife of Melvin Fuller was found lying in the House with a Bullet in her Bead. Tho Young Man her husband disappeared for a abort time but Toon re Turne i. It was eur rooted at the time that she bad been shot by her husband but As Abe recovered Tho matter was by statements to the effect to to she was a religious enthusiast and had put the pistol to her head while temporarily inrae. Alter this they were closely by their neighbor who soon became aware of facts that made them fear to meet these neighbors alter dark. The Pasteu Glt a train on the Michigan Lake Shore a til Ruad was thrown irom to track Uno morning in the 6prlug of 1874, by of a displaced re which had been hid from sight by Means of a Little Brush thrown on the track. No one was injured but the engine and cars were badly damaged and nothing Bat a Miracle saved the Lve of to passengers. No arrests were made until Zaat Winter when our citizens were suddenly surprised by the arrest of a Man by the name of Flagg for throwing the train from the track upon the complaint of the two fullers. To at once retorted by furnishing the Railroad company with evidence that caused the two worthy Farmers to be cared for by tue sheriff. Since this difficulty the wide of the younger Fuller became insane and was taken to Kalamazoo and the Wii eol John h. Fuller died very suddenly. A was mentioned in the Eagle wild Pound disappeared from borne on june 5. For h few Days nothing was thought of thib tact by Bis neighbors As lie had on previous occasions gone off for a time without giving Hia neighbors notice. The appearance of things about his Bouse however soon attracted the attention of some of Hie Friend who burst open the door and looked about for some explanation of his whereabouts. Everything woe found in a condition indicating an immediate return Home. Then certain parties began to suspect that Pound had 11eun murdered and despite the sneers of persons who were pleased to Call them very foolish they began to search for the missing Man. Sheriff Woltman came Down hereon monday last and. With his usual Energy at once commenced to Clear up the mystery. Very Little a discovered to work upon except a Rumor that Pound had gone out Tishim with the two fullers. Searching the Bouw pounds fishing line w As gone. This a one of the dead mans treasure and Well illustrates Bis eccentricities being s line 500 feet Long having 200 Hooks attached to it. Then the Rumor about the fishing party was investigated and not withstanding the fact test it Nad been stoutly denied by the defendants and laughed at by other there was found to be some truth n the matter. At this moment the to id inanity was astonished by the new that the Man Watson bad con -msh5 that the fullers had killed Pound and old his body in the Black Lake. The prosecuting attorney the sheriff and a party of men accompanied wat of to Pine Bay. Where f Stream called pipe Creek empties itself into Black Lake. Hero tied to a take that bad been driven into the mud at the in out of the Creek Bev found Willis Pound. The body was badly decomposed and stripped entirely naked being tied to the stake by a Plee eol to Bedhead marts fishing Hue. The spot chosen was an a frequented Noe but fishing parties often ran up into the Bay and it i strange that the body bad not been discovered previously. Tying a line to the remain the party returned to the City being obliged to Tow the body 100 feet behind the boat. It was Pat into a Box after having been viewed by the Coroner nod a jury and buried ins night. The dead mans feature were decomposed behold recognition but the Marks of a blow upon the left Temple a horrible in the Side made by an a and another Cut in the Back were visible. The Fuller had left Home a few Days ago but the old Man returned yesterday Ami the Rildie was Cap med last night at bin b Ltd a. He made no resistance and appeared to think his Case was hopeless. For a few Days Oast be Baa been endeavouring to dispose of his firm preparatory to leaving the scene of the murder and he would undoubtedly have been Miles away in a abort time ill son has not yet been captured but Bis whereabouts Are known and he will undoubtedly be caught. He is a Young Man Light complexion and Porte much jewelry Alio having a country air about him and is continually playing checkers.
