One of the Moodiest murders ever
rojiortod in this section of country,
oeourrod Friday afternoon at tho
home of Cap. Darnell, just over tho
statu line from lMgoten, Ky. A
negro man unmed Jack Allen went
to Darnell's whoro his wife was at
work, and oallod heV out to hare a
lulk. Thoy left the house n short
distanuo and sat down on a stump
talking for some time. Thoy wure
seen by another negro man who was
not far away. Suddenly Allen arose,
backed away a little from the woman
drew a pistol and began firing at
her. At thu third shot hc fell and
he fired two tuoro shots into her
proatrato body. Thun reloading the
pistol ho fired five more shuts into
the quivering corpse. Not content
with this, he loaded the pistol a second
time and otieo more emptied it
into the body of tho woman. After
hooting her in all tlfteou times he
walked away. The only witness was
the negro who paw it from a distance
afraid to try to interfere with the
work of the black demon. Allen in

What occurred loading up to the
killing, or what it was about, no one
knows but tho murderer himself
Whntovor was the motive, he deserves
to be hung for his diabolical
crime. Tho woman was unarmed
and altomptod no rosistanco. Her
murder, for down-right brutality,
has novor boon surpaskcd in this
pnrt of (ho country.
Allen had not been caught at last
account. Hnpkinnullo Kcntuckiau.
