Mr Henry Lybarger, of Howard township, in this County, residing near Millwood, was found dead in the orchard of David McGugin, on Wednesday last, abut half a mile from his own home, by a boy named Henry Howe. The boy gave the alarm, and soon a number of persons gathered at the spot. It was discovered that Mr. L. was shot in the right breast, and it was therefore thought advisible to send for Cornoner Ellis, in order that the facts relative to the case might be properly investigated. The Corner empann eled a jury, who, after fully considering all the facts, arrived to the conculsion that the deceased came to his death by a short accidentally fired from a gun which was found lying beside his person.
It appears Mr. Lybarger started from home, on that day, intending to hunt squirrels, and while passing through McGagin's orchard it is supposed that he was in the act of knocking some apples from the tree with the butt of his gun, when the hammer was raised and the cap exploded, discharging the shot in his right breast, two inches above the nipple. The downward direction of the shot would go to support this conclusion. The gun was double barreled.---one barel was found to be discharged, and the other still loaded.
Mr Lybarger was a highly respected farmer, of about 45 years of age.--was temperate and industrious in his habits, and was much respected in his neighborhood. He is said to hav e been a together happy in his domestic relations. All of these facts would remove the slightest suspicion that the death was a result of deliberotion. -- Mt.

MARTIN -- CLASS OF 1896 -- George Pumphrey Martin. (Non-graduate.)
Son of George R. Martin and Agnes P. Shipley; born in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, December 15, 1865; prepared for college at Mt. Vernon High School and the preparatory department at Oberlin; his college studies were interrupted by service in teaching and by ill health, on account of which he spent two years in California and Arizona, being engaged while there in civil engineering; he returned to Oberlin College and graduated in 1893; he joined the junior class in this Seminary in September, 1893, and pursued the usual course of study until March, when he was attacked by the disease which so soon and so sadly ended his earthly plans.
From his Western home, which he was permitted to reach a week before his death, comes the testimony to his pure Christian life and his persistent endeavor against many obstacles to fit himself for the Christian ministry. One of his Seminary classmates expresses the feeling of all: "Mr. Martin was a man of great promise in his chosen calling. Of fine intellect and deep spiritual power, with a remarkable simplicity of nature and thoughtfulness for others, he had won a warm place in the hearts of his Andover classmates and friends. The ministry, toward which he had directed his energies, and, above all, the foreign missionary work in China, to which he had for years planned to devote himself, have lost an earnest, consecrated life."
Mr. Martin died in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, of consumption, May 10, 1894, aged twenty-eight years.

Mr.Young's principal occupation in life was farming. Shortly after his marriage he rented a farm, where he lived two years. Then he purchased a 66-acre tract on the Wooster road, there making his home until 1870. For the following two years he rented a farm of 233 of the Lafever heirs in Clinton township, and at the end of that period the residence there burned and Mr. Young moved to Mt. Vernon. After another year had passed he purchased a farm of 123 acres in Monroe township, where he resided until the death of his wife.
