had lust returned from a local call
when he was stricken. Medical aid
was immediately summoned and ev
erything possible done by his family
and neighbors to relieve him, but
without avail and he passed away In
about fifteen minutes, before the ar
rival of aiiolhbr physician.
Dr. Bennett was a son of Mr. and
Mrs. Josc-Th C. Bennett, of Hart

Mm' Point PleaBant community. In
this county. He obtained bis classl-j
cal education at Hartford College

taken a number of post-graduate
courses. He began his practice at
Graham, Ky., but located at Mc
Henry about five years ago where
he has been employed as mine physi
cian for the Beaver Dam Coal Co.,
besides having a targe outside prac
tice. He had built up a reputation
as a consultant over a large part of
-the cotinty and -was -regarded 'ai'onV
of the leading physicians of this
section. He was unusually popualr
with his local professional brethren
and he was loved, respected and de
pended upon by every man, woman
and child within a radius of many
TOlles. His loss to his community "s
Dr. Bennett was Just In the prime
' of life when called away from his
chosen life work, being In his thirty

Mrs. W. C. Overhults, of Cedar
Edge, Colo., besides a host of other
relatives and friends in his old home
community, . at Hartford and
throughout the large territory he
had so faithfully served. Ohio
' County is Immeasurably poorer by
the loss of such a highly trained and
experienced physician, public spir
ited cltdzeti and Christian gentleman.
Funeral services were conducted
by Rev. Russell Walker, Pastor of

AGED TOU'LE BADLY BEATEX
BY DlilXKEX FOX-HIXTERS

ever heard of In Ohio County oc

Two young men assisted them In
getting to an abandoned house be

house,, where they spent the night,
intending to make their way to Dun
dee the next day.
The family reports that their
sleep was disturbed at about 1 o'
clock in the morning by the two
yoivig men who had jisststed therai
the night befoie. Upon arising they
were confronted by these men with
drawn revolvers and. the younger
couple made their escape, believing
that the rowdies would not moleBt
the older couple, who are about T5
years of age. However, so the old
folks testify, the ruffians severely
beat them with a fox horn and then
left, only to return later in the
night with other drunken fox hunt
ers. The old folks were again bad
ly beaten, according to their testi
mony. They were conveyed to Dun
dee, Monday morning, where their
wounds were treated by physicians.
It 'is feared that Mrs. Hall may not
