A FATAL AFFBAY TTEAB BEADY Flovd Hutchinson, an eighteen year old boy living on Brady island died Sunday from the effects of blow on the head struck by John Rawlins, the skull on the left side being" fractured from the forehead to the base of the brain. As near as can be learned the particlars of the affray are as fol lows: Hutchinson and Rollins were working in the hay-field for Mr. Abercrombie. Friday night after quiting work the two boys were feeding the horses, and Rawlins had a piece of board or scantling which he had been using in driving away a horse which persisted in eating from the wrong trou While looking- after the horses the boys became involved in a quarrel. Rawlins claims, we believe, that Hutchinson slapped him in the face and in self defense he had struck Hutchinson with the board. There was a third party present at the time, but it being- dark he did not see the fight, but distinctly heard two blows struck. Hutchinson was taken to Aber- crombie's house in an unconscious condition, and Dr. McCabe of this city summoned. Accompanied by vr. jves ue went aown ana upon examination the physicians found the left side of the skull badly frac tured, one fracture running from the forehead back to the lower part of the head, and another from near the top of the head down to the ear. The scalp was bruised but little, showing that the club used was broad. The physicians at once con cluded that there was little if any show for the boy to recover. They, however, trepanned the skull and rendered such aid as was possible. but the patient died about twelve hours after, without regaining con sciousness. Sheriff Miller went down Sunday night and placed Rawlins under ar rest, and in the absence of Coroner Doualdson. lm'panneled a jury and held an inquest. All the testimony that could be secured was taken and the jury returned a verdict to the effect that Floyd Hutchinson had come 'to his death by blows from a club or board in the hands of John Rawlins. Rawlins was brought to town and placed in jail and will probably have a preliminary hearing tomor row. He is onlv about seventeen years of age and has resided near Maxwell with his parents for about a year. Thieves again visited the ranch of H. J. Hansen north of the river last week and drove away four head of heifers and broke the leir of another.
