Dana Buck, a yonng farmer living
a few miles east of Coal Valley and in
Henry county, was found at the bot
tom of a well on his premises at 5
o'clock last evening. The deceased
had met the most frightful and cruel
death imaginable, and bis end was
attended by all the horrors of a
bloody and determined deed, com
mitted by bis own hand.
Buck's family consisted of a wife
and one child, and they had attended
church in the morning, and on re
turning had stopped at the home of
George Buck, a well-to-do and pros
perous farmer, father or Dana Buck,
near bunny mil. ine wife ana
child reached home about 3 in
the afternoon, and Mrs. Buck
not finding her husband, who
remained alone, made a bastv search.
Shts was shocked to find fresh blood
stains on the kitchen floor. These
she traced out the back door, across
the perch and along a short walk to
the brink of a well from which point
she could detect the crimson trail no

Combined Triple Method of Destruction
The body was discovered at the
bottom of the well, and being brought
to the surface, it was found that the
voung farmer's deed was as blood y
as it was determined. The throat
had been frightfully, slashed wiih a
knife; there were two bullet holes in
the head and one in the body, dis
charged from a 22-canbre revolver.
which the suicide clutched in his
hand. At first the theory of suicide
was discredited, as it seemed impos
sible that a man could inflict so
many injuries upon himself and still
retain consciousness long enough to
lump into the well, the water of
which was stained with bis blood
finned to bis body, however, was a
note, a very briel one, addressed to
his wife and child. It spoke first
of his love for them above all things
on earth, but explained that he had
used his wife's money and could not
replace it. Therefore, he could not
live, and had determined to put an
end to the remorse he was suffering
Suspicions of M order.
Even with this evidence of self-
(lcstriiplion there were some who felt
that a foul murder had been com

however, disclosed the fact that
young Buck had been unfortunate in
the investment of his wife s money
He had purchased an additional 80
acres 01 land this spring and bad
counted on the hay and oats crops to
bring him out clear. The probable
failure of a portion of them, and the
realization at best that be could

nothing in his actions to warrant the
thought that he contemplated ue

verdict of suicide was retnrned.
If such is the explanation of the
trasredy. Buck must Lave first cut
his throat in the kitchen at his home,
then rushed to the well and have shot
himself three times, once in the
stomach and twice in the head, and
either have jumped or have fallen
into the well.
