days later he was stricken with paralysis
which afflicted his whole left
side and since that time grew steadily
weaker until death relieved him
of his sufferings yesterday afternoon.
From the time he was taken down
with paralysis the attending physician
gave up hopes of his recovery
and said that the end would be but
the course of several days at most.
He was fifty-eight years old on January
Before entering thc'scrvicc of the
Illinois Central Mr. Colmcsncil was
connected with the old Ohio Valley
railroad company as when that line
was purchased by the I. C. he still
retained his position with that company.
Captain Colcmcsncil was born
January 2S 1S49 at Parquet Springs,
ear Louisville, and resided there
ntil after the breaking out of the
Civil War. When but a mere boy
he enlisted in the Confederate army
to fight for his commonwealth aud
After the war he entered the railroad
service and served on various
roads until shortly after the construction
of the old Ohio Valley
when he was made conductor with a
run between Henderson and Princeton.
The deceased leaves besides his
widow, two sons, Thomas, eighteen
years old, and Charles, fourteen
years. Henderson Gleaner.

led her to kill her tormcr husband.
It was thru a mother's love for her
child, she declared that drove her to

November 10, l!)Oti, is as follows:
Frankfort, Ky., State Prison, Nov.
10, lUOlJ. Commissioner Brown:
Kind Sir. I was sentenced from
Dixon Ky., for shooting and killing
my divorced husband Gholson Teague.
I had come from Homer 111., to visit,
where I was living with my second
husband, Charles Koach. He had
let me come back to my old home
to visit my dear old father and two
brothers. 1 had with me my two
littc daughters, Vera, who is just
blooming into young womauhcod,
and my little baby Uuth.
The court gave me both my little
girls aud alimony, which he, Mr.
Teague, aud his son by a former
marriage, tried to beat me out -of, as
inclosed letter will shov. Mr.
Toague abused tue, until at last 1
reached the limit of human icdurauce
my health was all broken down aud
I appealed to the law for protection
from that man, us he was a habitual
drunkard. After spcudiug a few
happy weeks with my father and two
brothers, I made my arrangement,-to
go back to my distant home.
When Mr. Tcague found out I
he -aid I should cover take
my baby back with me.
Then he or some one started the
report that I had sold my children
that 1 fought so hard for r11 the days
before. I to start away the next
miirniug. He followed aud made all
soils of threat- against me, -and being
afraid of him and thinking my life in
danger, and knowing he would try to I
take my baby by force, I concealed a
pistol and took my little girls and i
my two brothers went with me to the
depot to bid me goodbye, ltichard I
aud Hubert Crenshaw. As I wa I
standing in the wailing room holding
my baby by the hand, he, TY'aguc.
came up and attempted to snatch her
from me. I held on to her precious
little form, and oh, how dear sic was
to me at that 'moment, 1 never loved
my baby quite so much as then. I
begged him to let go, and when my
brothers saw us struggling they came
to my rescue. Just as they took
hold ol him, in that awful, moment
shot him I seem to have lost all
reason, and being sick and nervous, I
shot him onetime.
My little daughters arc and always
have been , my most piceious treasures,
aud God in heaven knows that
my poor brothers arc innocent and
had no part in tho trouble. They are
implicated just because they had their
hands on him, trying to reason with
him, trying get- him to give up ray
baby but I was so orazed at that time
that I was uot responsible for what I
You know, Dear Mr. Brown that
it's the naturo of the lowest creature
that lives on earth to fight for her
young and how much more would it
bo tho nature of a human mother to
fight for her young. I did not to want
hurt the man. I was only thinking
of my little delicate, tender child that
was being so cruelly torn away from
inc. I was so blinded by grief aud
despair that I did not realize what
I was dointr.
I knew that my baby w& in danger.
I did not have a just and fair trial
or I would never have been convicted,
and to think of my brothers being
so unjustly confined. It was I
who did the shooting. Not them.
Oh, what true mother would uot
fight for her children that she suffered
and brought into the world. My
oldest daughter. Vera, fifteen years
of age, needs my care and protection
now more than ever. I do so want
her to be educated, and my little
baby Ruth is such a delicate child
and does need a mother's love and
care so much. But, if you cannot
find it in your heart to give me my
freedom, won't you please give my
two brothers their freedom. Richard
has a wife and a sweet little baby
who needs his care so much, and my
dear old father needs my brother
Robert's so much, and
they arc innocent. Oh, I do want
to be free so 1 can take care of my
little giris once more, but if you
can't open your heart and let me
have my liberty once more, won't
you give my poor innocent
brothers their freedom? 1 beg of
you in God's name to grant a broken-hearted
mother and s prayers.
I remain your humble
Mr. Emma Roach.
