FEARFUL TRAGEDY IN
SOUTH END OF COUNTY
Matt Singleton Returns From In
ana. Kills His Wife and Blows
Out his Own Brains.
Crazed with joalousv nnd des
pondent thnt his divorced wife was)
iibotit to wed nnother, Matt Single
ton shot her to death at her home
four miles south of McKimicy this
county, Friday morning. He then
sntj down, according to nil indica
tions, und wrote three notes, tolling
of bis deed, nnd when they wero
finished blow out his own brains.
One of tho letters wns to his two
sons, Elmer nnd Ycrnoti Singleton,
and requested that thsy bury their
parents, side by sido in the cemetery
at Eitbanks. Another note was to
the Rev. George Thompson, asking
that ho conduct services over the
graves, and third was to Thomas
Lee. father of his divorced wife.
Singleton had made his home in
Indiana for the past few years. Last
Spring his wife secured n divorco
from him on the ground of abandon
ment. Rumor had it that she had
been in correspondence with a inaa
in Ohio whom she wns soon to mar-
l.v. singleton returned to tlie com
munity where he hud lived, a short
time ngo, nnd the report of Mrs.
Singleton's approaching marriage
to another man reached him. He
brooded over the news, and Friday
morning went to flic homo of J. R.
Nelson at Eubank, nnd borrowed a
pistol, saying that he wns going
squirrel hunting. Instead he went
to his former home, where his ex
wife was living.
It is believed from the condition
in which things Were found, that
she wns kindling a fire in the stova
in tho kitchen to get dinner, when
he entered the house. It is thought
that he stole up and shot her with
out saying a word, as the bullet
which ended her, life entered the
back of her head, and it is apparent
that! she sank To tho floor dead in
her tracks. Then it w.13 that Single.
ton sat down to a table, and wrote
the notes before he took his own
life. He told his boys good-byo in
his letter to them, stating thnt his
time had come to leave this world,
nnd that he wished they wOitfd lay

Elmer Singleton, who had made
his home with his mother, had left
home earlier in the day, and was
working clearing out some timber
some distance from the house. He
did not hear any shots, nnd it was
not until he came home for dinner
thnt he discovered the double trag
edy. A neighbor living a short dis
tance away had heard the shots. Ho
said that there seemed to be an in
terval of about thirty minutes be
tween them, which would account
for tho time that elapsed between
the death of Mrs. Singleton, nnd
Singleton's b,elf destruction, which
was occupied by him in writing his
