Sunday morning about9:30 o'clock
the body or Scott Davis, com ana
stiff in death, was found lying face
downward lu the shallow -water in
the branch which crosses at Eighth
and Glade streets near the tan yard
The bjody was discovered by Carrie
Akin,' colored, and carried to the
undertaking establishment of West
& Nichols, where it was dressed
and afterwards carried to the home
of the dead man's sister, Mrs. R. H
Guest. The coroner was notified
but.-after a few inquiries had been
made it was concluded as reasonably
certain that the death Wira purely
accidental, and therefore no legal
inquest was held.
Davis had been drinking quite
freely the night before, and, while
on his way home, it is supposed that
in the dark he missed the bridge
and stepped oiT into the branch;
and falling headlong, that his head
struck a rock, cutting a deep gash
in his forehead and causing uncon
sciousness. The water was only an
inch or two deep, but when found
his nose and mouth were under the
water, and it is probable that strang
ulation, aided by the extreme cold,
brought on death. Davis had a
small amount of money in his
pockets when found, and a piece of
meat, which he had bought Satur
da v night just before starting home,
was found lying in the branch a few
feet in front of him. -
The deceased man was about 35
vears of age, unmarried, and was the
son of the late Wood Davis, who
was at one time Sherill of this
county. He had lived here the
greater part of his life, but, until
several months ago, he had been
away from here for some time, liv
ing in Texas and other States.
The funeral services were conduc
ted at the residence of Mrs. P.. H.
Guest Monday at 2 p. m. by Dr. D.
C. Kellev. and the interment took
place in Rose Hill Cemetery.
