Hiram Sharp, a well known and

As soon ns the shotj woro fired,

after a hitter quarrel, but she re

The Sharp family' has boon vory
prominent for a number of years and
Hiram Sharp has been regarded as a
good farmer and a law abiding citi
zen, bo has accumulated sorao prop
erty and had a lot of friends who
aro dumbfounded at tho allocking
detail? of tho tragody.
On account of her injury and
norvous condition, Mrs. Sharp's
mother has. not recovorod her
strength suflioiontly to toll tho details
or to givo a conneoted account of
tho causo which lcd to tho tragedy.
The ooronor has been summoned,
and it will not bo possiblo to got tho
full particulars until he makes his
Up to tho noon hour nothing has
been heard from Sharp, and tho
chances aro that ho has ronohed a
railroad and got on sonic outgoing
train before this.
If ho is not captured by nightfall,
an effort will doubtless bo made to
have a reward offered for his arrest.
Hiram Sharp has two daughters,
who aro married, and a son, a suc
cessful farmer living in tho imme
diate neighborhood in which the
crime was committed.
LATBST.-Sharp has been arrested
and lodged in jail at Decatur. No
ono was hurt in making tho arrest.
A mob came near lynching tho pris
oner. Sharp claims that ho did not
know what ho was doing and that ho
is crazy. Thc samo old trick.
