-A dispatch to the Detroit Journal from Lewiston, in regard to Mrs. JAMES' death says: The Coroner's jury has brought in a verdict that Mrs. JAMES came to her death as the reult of an abortion performed by Archie McKINNON. McKINNON has been arrested on a charge of murder. The verdict has caused a sensation.

-The terrible uncertainty of life was illustrated last Friday evening, in the person of Napoleon GOUPIL, of this village.

Dr. INSLEY was hastily called and he was removed to his office, where all that skill could command was done, but he never recovered consciousness and expired in a little more than an hour. He leaves a wife and three children, who will receive the sympathy of the entire community. The funeral, Monday, conducted by Rev. Fr. WEBELER, was largely attended. (16 Dec 1897)
