ALMIRA'S IXflB[E MURUER '1
JUDGE J. A. LEWIS AND WIFE MET iC
Robbers Beat the Life from Theirl
Bodies With a Cluh and An Ax-Mr.
Lewis Was a Pioneer of the Big
Bend Country-Owned Two SectionsI
Almira, Waah,-Judge J. A. Lewis. a
pioneer 76 years old, and his aged
wife were murdered in coldest blood
by unknown robbers who, after a
struggle, brained the old man with an
ax and then murdered the wife by
besting her to death with a club.
The double murder was as coolly
planned as it could possibly be, and
jthe object was doubtless robbery, as
the judge was worth $20,000 or $25,000,
and was supposed to have money in
the safe which he kept at his coun
try home, five miles southea. t of here.
The theory is that the terrible
crime was committed by some visitor
who came on the guise of doing busi
ness, as the safe was found open, and
had evidently been unlocked by Mrs.
Lewis, as she alone was able to work
the combination. The hand of the
aged judge, palsied with age, was una
ble to turn the tumblers successfully.
The crime was discovered by 0. J.
Williams, a tenant of the judge's, who
found the judge's body.
The job was evidently planned with
the utmost care, for the back door had
been barricaded by a table and two
charsr piled against it. Lying on the
floor was a bloody ax. The judge had
been pounded to death with the blunt
side of it. Evidently after completing
the search the robbers went out the
front door, locked it behind them and I
iBefore leaving, however, the rob
bers went to the corral, where Mrs.
Lewis had been milking the cows, and
waylaid her with a club. There was
evidence of a fearful struggle, but at
last the poor old woman was beaten
lifeless and her body was buried un
der a heap of hay and snow in the
center of the corral. Her body form
ied the little mound which Williams
11 saw on Saturday.
Judge Lewis was a pioneer of the
I Big Bend, and was formerly a probate
Sjudge here. He owned two sections of
e land. There are no children. Dr.

r~H~XU. S. MINISTER TO ENGLAND
Commends Peruna to All Catarrh Sufferers.
at Ron. Louis B. Johnson Ia the sou of the late Reverdy Johnson, who warn
is United State. senator from Maryrland, also attorney general under President
ye Johnson, and United State. Minister to England, and who was regarded as~the
id greatent constitutional lawyer that ever lived.
In a recent letter from 1008 F Street, N. W., Mr. Johnson says:
S "No one should longer suffer from Catarrh when Peruna Is
idaccessible. To my knowledge it has caused relief to so many of
as my friends and acquaintances, that it Is humanity to commend Its
use to all persons suffering with this distressing disorder of the
Lu. human system. "-Louis B. Johnson.
Catarrh is capable of changing all the
life-giving secretions of the body into
scalding fluids, which destroy and in-.
flame every part they come in contact
with. Applications to the places
affected by catazwh can do little good
save to soothe or quiet disagreeable
symptoms. Hence it is that gargles.
.qrrays, atomizers and inhalants only
serve as temporary relief. 8o long as
the irritating secretions of catarrh con
tinue to be formed sc long will the
membrane. continue to be inflamed,
no matter what treatment is used.
There ii bat one remedy that has
the desirable effect, andl that remedy is
