Boone County has, had'r fair share of
the crime wave which has swept over
the country this summer. It reacted here
not in petty thieving but in murder.
"I do not attribute it to the war," said
Sheriff T. Fred Whiteside. "It comes

There has been a series of unsolved
murder mysteries in the county dating
back until the Gvil War. There the Jisl
becomes lost in the wholesale slaughter
now called bushwhacking, and beyond
that a haze of time, blots out the record.
In most of the unsolved cases the vic
tims were old persons who lived in out-ofthe-way
The bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Orville
Allison were found at their home about
halfway between Ashland and Wilton
July 29, 1920.
Investigation led to the conclusion that
they hid been dead about eight days
and had been poisoned by drinking jim
son seed brew. Because nothing further
could be found the investigation was
dropped. Medical men later expressed
a doubt that enough poison could have
been gotten out of the amount of jim
son seed found in the coffee pot to kill
the two people.
liVED IH IOIU.V rUCE
They lived about two miles off the
road in a hollow where Allison raised
tobacco on his forty acre farm. It was
hard to reach except on foot or by
horseback. When found the bodies lay
in the yard about 100 yards apart, one
on each side of the house. Allison was
I) ing close to a pallet under a tree; Mrs.
Allison was found on the other side of
Did the jimson seed kill them, and if
so did one of the two put it in the
coffee pot? Did they have any money
around the house or did any one imme
diately profit by their death? This con
stitutes thr puzzle.
By far the most sensational local mur
der .mystery in recent years waa the case
of Samuel Halstead, who was found at
Ids home near Inglewood with a bullet
hole through his bead June 21, 1920.
The coroner's verdict said "The deceased
met deaMi from a gunshot wound at the
hand of unknown persons.' Beyond
that the police have never been able to

THOUC1IT TO IIIYC MOIEY
It was commonly believed in the
neighborhood that Halstead had consid
erable money on his person but none
was found when the body was examined.
Besides this theory is another that some
one might hare profited indirectly by
his death. "Work on the murder has
not ceased." said Sheriff Whiteside. "A
thing of that kind -often drags on for
years before it is straightened out."
Another murder similar to the one
just mentioned was that of Thomas
Coonce, who formerly 'lived neat Ham
burg. He was killed on his farm six
miles from Monticello, Ark, July 10.
Neighbors found him lying, in his front
yard facinc the house. The theory is
that someone called him out during the
night and shot him as he started back
toward the house. Coonce had consider
able money in his pockets and also bad
some more in tlie house. It. was undis
turbed! Did the murderer become afraid and
run after he had killed Coonce? Waa
it someone who had a grudge or were
there motives of a different nature? This
is part of the problem facing the of
ficials who are attempting to clear it up.
From these recent tragedies an inter
val goea back until 1898. Tom Hagan
was an old bachelor who lived on a Jit
tie island in the Missouri River about
sixteen miles south ot Columbia, ate
did truck gardening by raising water
melons, potatoes, etc One day an ac-.
qnalntance advised him to gather together
the money he had hid around hi home
and take it to a bank. Acting on the
advice he did collect his money.
KILIZD ST SHOTCUN
They found him sitting at a table
where be is supposed to have been eat
ing supper. The shotgun charge fired
through an open window had done its
work well,, for he apparently had never.
moved. The money was gone. A rela
tive had found him silting there where
he had been for four days.
About the same time his brothers
money vault had been blown open at
his nearby store. No one has ever
proved who committed the deed.
In about 1897 a woman by the name
of Lydia Brushwood was found hanging
to a tree a short distance from her
home. Marks on the body and the na
ture of the hanging led to the belief
that she had been killed and then hung
to the tree. Public sentiment ran high
against her husband and he left the
country to save. himself from mob vio
lence, but no positive evidence was ever1

A few yean before this a man jumped
off a pataenger train leaving Columbia

According to the representatives there, I
wheat is being bought at country ship- j
ping points at 2 and $2.10 a butheL ,
The price of No. 2 wheat in Columbia, I
however, is $225. If the farmer do i
hold the price to $2.75, it will mean $3

"Our fanners can sell wheat at $226 a '
bushel and get pay for all it cost them." f
said O. R. Johnson, in charge of farm
management in the .College of Agncul
Jure. "The figure of $2.75 is too high.
It' may not be too high for Kansas be
