issued a statement to-day to the tax
payers of Rocklngham County, giving
them thirty days to confer with the
Commissioners of Revenue in regard to
mistakes in assessments, criminal and
otherwise, after which the commlstlon
< is will carry the matter to the grand
jury at a later session.
The grand Jury sprung a aurprise
by Indicting Joseph Frazler, of Is?
land Ford, for wife-murder. Frazler
took to the- mountains, when his wife
died, leaving her week old baby, and
neighbors testified that the woman's
death was due to kicks snd licks ad?
ministered oy the husband because she
was too weak to cook and work. Hor?
rible stories of gashes snd bruises
were told of on the body of the dead'
After Frazier's arrest, the body was
exhumed and no marks and bruises
were found. At the preliminary hear?
ing, however, a little son of Frazier's
told of his father striking his mother,
and said his father has promised him a
suit of clothes to keep quiet.
The trial promises to be a sensa?
lavitationa I sawed.
