II. K. Tliomas. He is dead. Ou the
night ol the aist of December 1H74 I
saw Mr. liorbuch shoot blm with a
pistol. He was shot immediately over
the left eye. As soou as tbe shot was
tired deceased fell. About half-past
eleven o'clock as we were about to
oloso our house All tbe parties
ill the bouse bad leeu drinking
that night. Deceased stepped up to tbe
barkeeper and asked hiiu bow much
he owed The barkeeper told him be
owed for two rouuds. one being for the
drinks iprevious totue game or pool
and the other for the pool game.
w Hereupon Air. i nomas puueu out a
dollar and said he didn't owe any such
damned thing that he only owed for
the pool game and for uotbiug previ-
ous to that. The barkeeper told him
all right and only took out for one
round of drluks and handed him the
change. Mr. Thomas then walked oft
from the counter aud said lu a
loud voice that any man who said he
owed for another rouud of drluks was
a damned liar or something to thut
enuct. Ju tne meantime Air. Uor

front got my book and took the
money out or tne drawer and turned
some of the lights and while doing
so I beard a terrible lacket lu the
back room which was caused from the
dropping or the sprinkling pot from
the counter by Mr. Thorn us. I then
heard Mr. Horbach ask Mr. Thomas
"wbat in the hell do you mean." I
didn't bear the reply of Mr. Thomas
as I had gone lute my office. I theu
returned and went behind tbe bar and
whispered to the bar keeper and aaid
"by all means lets close uo." Thomas
and Horback continued talkintr. Mr.
Thomas in an angry manner. 1 then
saw Mr.. Horbach approach Mr.
Thomas aud say "I have got enough
of this" and pushed him off a little bit
and in the meantime be drew a pistol
and tired it tbe shot taklug effect aa
above stated. Horbaob bad the pistol

of rather ancient date. Ilia com-
parison between several of the lead-
ing universities may be found
serviceable by the young Americans
with whom it is a passion to com-
plete or continue their studies in
Germany. Berlin excels the other
German universities in the extent
of iu facilities. Tubingen is. its
equal in philology Gottiniron in
jurisprudence Halle in theology
xieioeiourg in physics and Vienna
in medicine. But Berlin affords the
widest scope oi study and in many
respect presents greater advantages
for foreign residents. The Amer-
ican however; should judge accord-
