John Rouse a stockman from Lott,
Falls eouut , wts found this morning
about 7 o'clock lying in tho yard back
of tho Red Front saloon in an uncon
scious condition and nearly dead Dr.
P. R. Hengst and Dr. Beverly Cald
well were called in and found he wax
suffering from an overdose of mor
phino and in a critical condition. Ho
was at once removed to the Mitchell
house and is receiving uvory possible
attention at tho hands of the abovo
named physicians and Gffiocrs Clay
and Kendnck, with prospects of suc
cess in saving his hie.
The facts, as near as could bo
learned, aro that Mr. Rouse and his
partnor in business, Mr. Si Whitta
ker, ex-sheriff of Falls county, re
turned from St. Louis yeeterday, whero
they had been to soil a carload of cat
tle. Tho latter continued his journoy
to Lott and Mr. Rouso laid over in
Waco to spend tho night, intending to
go homo Hub morning. lie dropped
in at the Red i'ront saloon in the res
ervation about 7 o'clook last
night and drank a glass of beer with
an acquaintance. This acquaintance
stated to a News reportor that ho had
been drinking a little but was not
Mr John Dowd, tho proprietor of
the saloon, states that whon he left
the saloon for tho night ho was in tho
backroom sitting at a table and appa
rently all right. Lowis Crowder, the
negro porter, opened tho saloon this
morning and upon going out ino tho
yard saw tho unfortunate' man sitting
against the houso in the oondition al
readv described. John Dowd and
George Walker, the night bartender,
were called acd at first thought ho
was dead. A bottle of morphino
half emptud was found in his pocket
and tho theory is thit ho has either
been tho victim of foul phy or that
ho took tho drug with suicidal intent.
If tho former ho true there is as yot
no evidence of tho fact and if Mr.
Rouse should die thoro perhaps never
will bo. On the other hand fhcre is
no knowu reason why ho should hive
attempted to take his own life, as ho
was known not to bo despondent.

of tho condition of his partner and re

An intimate friend of Mr. Rouse
states that he had about 8A000 on his
person yesterday, hut had none whon

this money, if it be truo that he had
it, he has undoubtedly bosn robbed.
