REACHES RIPE AGE
Mrs. Phoebe Walton Dies at Home in
Carbon OUST Nesrinie OO1I1
Year of Her Birth.
LIVED IN COUNTY 47 YEARS
Remains Are Buried Yesterday at An
dalusia Beside Those of the
Husband of the Deceased.
The remains of Mrs. Phebe Walton,
who died Friday at Carbon Cliff, were
interred yesterday beside those of her
husband, the late Zachariah Walton, in
the Andalusia cemetery. Services
held at 11 a. m. were conducted at the
Andalusia Iiaptist church by Rev
Thomas Wood, of Hampton.
Mrs. Walton was one of the pioneers
of the lower end of the county. She
was nearly SO years of age and had
lived in the county 17 years. New
York was her native state but she re
moved with her parents early in life
to Indiana and thence to Edgiugton
township, after she had married. In
1862 the Waltons took up their resi
dence in Andalusia and that was the
home of the family till Mrs. Walton
went two years ago with her sen John
D. Walton, to reside at Carbon Cliff.
Married Sixty-Seven Years.
Mrs Walton and her husband had
been married 67 years at the time ef
his death four years ago at almost
the exact age she attained. Of the
seven children born to them four now
survive. Nicholas, of Tyron. Neb.;
Jackson, of Oskaloosa. Iowa: John D.,
of Carbon Cliff, and Mrs. J. II. Ballard,
of Andalusia. Mrs. Walton and 50
years a member of the Baptist church.
During the civil war the husband aud
the eldest son. Nicholas, were both
members of the union army. Mrs.
Walton's sacrifice for her country was
not less than theirs for upon her
shoulders fell the duty of carins for
the smaller children during their ab
sence. Her death was caused by ail
ments incidental to advanced age.
CLAMPERS IN A FATAL FIGHT
Two Men From up the River Killed in
Southern End o.' State.
Barney Lancaster, of Princeton.
Iowa, was shot and killed, and P.
Woodruff of Camanche, Iowa, was shot
ami fatally injured on the Ohio river
near Shawneetown. 111.. Friday by
Ceorge Scott, who is still at large.
The three men concerm'd are all
clam diggers. The two men who were
shot worked together and were out in
their boat dragging for clams near
Wabash island. It seems that their
anchor line became entangled with
that of Scott, and he called to them
several times as the boats Boated
down the river, demanding that they
loosen the lines. His calls seemed
to have been unheeded by Lancaster
and Woodruff, and he opened fire upon
them, shooting Lancaster in the left
temple and left arm. and Woodruff in
the back, the ball penetrating the right
lunch. Woodruff also received a
wound in the left arm.
According to what can he derived
from the evidence brought forth in
the coroner's inquest, it appears that
no serious threats were made by
either of the injured men and that
Scott's action was uncalled for. Scott
hits not yet been arrested, but it It
thought that he will give himself up
as he has been seen about the town
since the affray. Lancaster's body
was shipped to Princeton. He was
about 40 years of age .and a son ot
Aaron Lancaster of Princeton. He is
survived by a wife and four children
Woodruff is 25 years of age. Lan
caster had two pearls, valued tit $70n.
in his pocket when he was killed.
A CONDUCTOR IS ASSAULTED

friends wanted to get off. but the spot
where they wanted to alight being no
