A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY.
TWO MEN SHOT DEAD.
A Quarrel Between Wives
Temple, Aug. 3. A bloody tragedy
occurred on the public road near Rog
ers, Wednesday evening near sun
down. H. It. Lemnions and Hank
L. Emmons were traveling from Rog
ers toward their homes, which Is in
what 1b kuown as the Punetiard set
tlement on Big Elm creek, when they
were met by S. M. Crow, with whom
Lemmon had previously had trouble
and shooting commenced at once.
BothJLemiuon and EinonB were shot
to death and their bodies left lying in
the road by Crow, who went to his
homo and sent word that he was
ready to surrender, as he felt that ho
was Justified in what ho had done.
The bodies of tho two men were taken
to their homes by Mr. Tucker, who
came along tho road shortly after the
killing, and to him Emons, who was
not dead, made a statement. Lem
mon was a married man and Emons
lived with hfm. They had leased a
portion of tho Punobard laud; and
lived on it about four years. Crow Is
also married. The feud between Crow
and Lemmon had its origin about u
year ago in slanderous reports which
wero circulated connecting tho name
of Crow and Mrs. Lemmon together.
An affray occurred about that time
betwoeu Mrs. Lemmon and Crow's
wife, in which the latter wub badly
beaten. At the October term of court
Mrs. Lemmon was heavily fined for
beating Mrs Crow, and since then tho
famillos havo been deadly enemies.
The men met at the.Centenuial church
Tuesday morning, when high words
wero exchanged, but a dlftloulty was
avoided by tho interference of the by
standers. The tragedy which was enacted
Wednesday was looked for by those
accquainted with the facts. Thero
were no witnesses to the bloody con
flict which took placo near Itodgers,
and Emons' dying statement .will be
the only story of tho fatal mooting,
except that of Crow. There havo been
many bloody tragedies onaotod iu
tiie neighborhood whoro Lemmon and
Emmons wero killed. About ten
years ago Crow's father wns assas
iuated as he was returning homo
from Bolton by a ouo-loggod school
teacher named Hudson, who Is now
serving flfty-livo yoars' In tho peno
itcntiary fur tho murder. Lemmon
wns about 45 years old, and loaves u
wlfo and thro chlldron. Emons was
only 25 years old, and came to this
country with Lommon four years ago.
He Is unmarried. Tho ufi'ulr has cast
a gloom over this community, and
whilo auothor bloody page has boon
added to tho history of Boll county, in
tho opinion of thoso who know nil of
the parties tho trouble Is not yet
over and more bloodshed is expected.
Emmons says that Crow shot Lem
