FEARS OF FOUL PLAY.
The Mysterious Man Found Hanging
to a Greene County Tree.
SOLDIEB SEXSATION AT TIFFIN.
W A Suit Bronglit Against Senator Sherman
for Unpaid Taxes.
ALL THE KEWS TEOSI XEAB-BI TOWA'B
Waynesbueo, March 18. The body
of the man found hanging to a tree on the
farm of Samuel Hewitt, this connty, is sup
posed to be a young man named Garrison, of
Elm Grove, W. Va., who disappeared from
home about six weeks ago. When the re
mains were taken down they were found to
be In an advanced state of decomposition.
A bullet wound was found in the back of
the head, and the entire upper part of the
face and top oftheskull had been blown off.
His death is supposed to hare been the
result of suicide, yet some circumstances in
dicate that he may have been foully dealt
with. Pursuing the former theory it is sop
posed that he climed up a large tree, placed the
rope around a Umb, descended and climbed a
smaller tree that grew ten feet from the larger
one. Here he secured the end of the rope
made a noose and placed it around his neck,
then tied a loaded pistol to a branch of a small
er tree and in some way tired It. An empty
horse-pistol was discovered hanging to a branch
of the smaller tree. A strange circumstance
is the fact that no blood was found on his cloth
ing and .the upper and front part of the skull
cannot be found.
The pistol is about 15 inches long, and it is
believed impossible for him to have fired a bul
let into the base of bis bead. Two physi
cians were called at the Coroner's inquest, ono
of whom remained steadfast to the opinion
that the man's skull was Injured from a blow.
The man was an entire stranger in the commu
nity, but was identified as having been seen
about six weeks before in a drugstore at Cam
eron, W. Va and then afterward shooting at
a mark along the side of the road in the vicin
ity of where the body was found. About four
weeks ago a young man named Garrison, from
Elm Grove, passed through the community in-
?Uiring for his brother, who had disappeared
rom home. Garrison's father once lived in
Bichhill township, and was a gardener.

When You Need
An Alterative Medicine, don't forget
that everything depends on the kind
used. Ask for Ayer's Sarsaparilla and
take no other. For over forty years this
preparation has had tbe endorsement of
leading physicians and druggists, and
it has achieved a success unparalleled
in the history of proprietary medicines.
"For a rash, from which I had suf
fered some months, my father, an M. D.,
recommended Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
effected a cure. I am still taking this
medicine, as I find it to be a most pow
erful blood-purifier." J. E. Cocke,
"O. H. Hut, Druggist, Evansville,
Ind., writes: "I have been selling
Ayer's Sarsaparilla for many years. It
maintains its popularity, while many
other preparations, formerly as well
known, have long been forgotten."
" I have always recommended Ayer's"
Sarsaparilla as superior to any other
preparation for purifying the blood."

The Monday sun was sinking fast,
As by the city's stores there passed 1
A youth who carried in his hand
A business card Thereon the brand 1
In windows bright he saw the glow
Of countless treasures set for -show,
Within, the shoppers priced and bought ;
, .. ry"aT But in his mind abode one thought -J i
A Furnisher cried "turn and see '
My show of haberdasherie.
Who's stock with this can e'er compete?"
The youth replied far down the street-
"Try not to pass," a clothier cried,
"The lowest prices are just inside,"
The youth replied, "It may be so
But just the same I'll always go
"Beware of cheap machine made shoes
Give industry and skill its dues."
This was the cobbler's last suggest.
The youth replied, "They keep the best-.
His brow was stern, his eye so keen
Was blue,vwjthout a shade of green;
His mind was clear, his judgment sound; .
He'd looked for "business" and he found
Toward eventide, as down the street
A pious "copper" paced his beat,
He saw this youth in raiment grand;
That card still in his well-gloved hand-
His stylish hat, his shapely suit,
His natty cane and faultless boot
His snowy shirt and tasteful tie,
Had every one been sold him by
That "copper" stood amazed to see
Such wondrous styles and dignity.
"Who made this dude?" he loudly cried, j
And, proudly gay, our youth replied- j
