Tin Moxt Ilciuurkntiln Suicide.
The most curious miloido In tho an

dug hta own gnivt nud placed a rough
colllu of Ills own 'inii! work nt tho bot

kept from rolling back Into the eiccnvn
tloii by boards held in pUieo by u trhs
ger to which a string wh ultncheil.
Everything lu redlnow, the Oidluomti'
Mr. Jones, as Hultsoquont develupmouts
revealed, got In the co-fln. took a dose
of poison nud then pulled tho string,
burying hlmsolf beneath tons of eurth.
Thui has been put down as one of the

The i:rly .Mttine Sc-lioola,
Tho first Mchools In hoiuo Maine towns
have beeu uttunded with romunUc cIp
cumstanciw. The first school In Gull
ford, for want of n better place lu
which to fertilize the youug Idea, was
hold "In the loft over Captain Ben
nott's open shed." In Dexter the first
gathering of urchins for Instruction
was In "Lieutenant Stafford's barn."
lu Corinth the first school was held In
the oiton u Ir under n large tree.
The first schoolroom In Uxotar was
porhaps as unique as any. Ctptchod,
polos were set In the ground back of
Mr. llnrker'J burn and on those other
polos were laid, whllo around tho slde9
loom boards wore sot up on end to In
close the space whoro the school was
