That I was at W hittmire's on the morn
lig of A pril 13, 1901, about eight o'clock
1 came to the door, after asking Mr
Setzler whether he supposed Mr. Let
had gotten up or not. Tihe clasi) was
hanging down and the lock was in th(
door already locked. I unbolted thi
door then and caie on inside of th
door. I stepped to a little room door
in (he build ing, where Mr. Lee slept in
I I)eepcd In and never saw him. I.step
ped back then to go out, not seeing hity
in his room. I looked around and say
Mr. Lee about the middle of the roon
lying on the floor and then I went oul
and called to Mr. Seizier to come her(
that Mr. Lee was in the house lying or
the floor and that. somncting must be tht
matter with him. M r. Setzler said thal
he couldn't leave the store, that n(
clerk was in it,to take charge of it. I
called Mr. McD. Metts, then he cal(
over immediately and we found him
still lying on the tloor.
I saw Mr. Lee at his store on the 11t
day of April about II o'clock and that
is the last I saw him alive.
Mr. Lee told me that a jug of whis
key was at the depot and that hc
wanted me to -get it out and take i
home with me and bring it to him ot
the night of the 11th day of April, 1001,
I did not bring it to him for fear that
people would think that I was conceal
ing whiskey for Mr. Lee. I intended
to send the jug to Mr. Lee, but, no ont
came by, by whoim I could send it. ]
took a drink out of the jug. Mr. Let
told me I could drink some of the whis.
key. I don't think that more than hali
of the whiskey is gone. The jug wa
supposed to contain one gallon of whis
key wvhen I broke the seal. I took thc
stamph and tag ol'f the jug.

had anything to drink. Hie said he had
some, but Pink Tucker had It. lIe said
he had been exp)ecting Pink to bring i
in ever since he Bent him after it. He
said that he didn't know what to thinki
of Pink, Hie said that he could havc
disposed of It, if he had-it downm here.
Hie seemed very anxious about the whis
key, and asked two or three people
whether they were going up that way,
so they could tell him to bring It.

McD. Metts, sworn, says:
On the morning of AprIl 12, 1901, be

to the store of Mr. WA. S. Lee. I asked
him what was the matter, and he said
Mr. Lec was dead. I said to him I
reckon not, then Pink Tucker said lIhe
Is not dead something is badly wrong
with him. I came on then and pushed
open the door and asked Pink where it
he. And he said, pointing to him, therc
he is out there. I came to Mr. Lee
then and saw that he was dead. He was
already cold in death.
