A TRAGEDY. A. E. Sigler Fires Three Shots Into Mr. Dingman a Renter on His Farm. - Mr.ingman, a renter on the farm of A. E. Sigler, six miles southwest of Wa-Keeney was shot and killed by the latter Thursday afternoon. Mr. Dingman was a man past mid dle age and recently from Illinois, near Decatur, coming about two months ago, he purchased of Mr. Tat man, who had a contract of some kind with Sigler, the interest of Tatman in the Sigler ranch and moved in about six weeks ago. Thursday morning Sigler hired Henry Iliedlemann and J. V. Gass winttogoto the farm ostensibly to break some colts and do other work. Betore going to the farm he borrowed a revolver of Grant Marshall and a shotgun of Walter Gibson. Arriving at the place aoout 11 a. m. aixuiuiuk to the testimony of the two hired men they worked about the place un til near 5 p. m., when seeing Dingman coming they all went in ahead of him, Sigler remaining outside to help put up the team. Words followed and there seemed to be some dispute, but all entering the house and tinally being seated. It seems that Sigler ordered Ding man oif the place and drew his revol ver to enforce the order. One witness says Dingman slapped Sigler and tried to catch iiim by tlit throat, catching the hand that held the revolver at the same time, wlieii Sigler tired three shots. One taking effect iu the hand, one through tin left breast, and having fallen, a chirc. through the the head anu neck. The three went out and Siglei mounted his horse and rode to town to give himself up to the officers, tell ing the me u to stay there till soan one came but not to go into the house. ATter two or three hours Coroue. Escher, Hinds Svviggett, Charlie Gib son, Charlie McGrath and possibly several others arrived. They met tin men some distance from the farm, who returned after much persuasion Going in they found Dingman sti. breathing, but lie crawled to anothei part of the r6om in an evident ai- tempt to reach tne water-pail. We greatly aeplore that this trage dy has occurred in our midst, bui have tried to give theviacts as the were given to us. Mr. Dingman was almost astrangei in the county, while Mr. Sigler has lived an honored citizen of the count) for twelve or fifteen years, and wi sincerely hope that when the Tulles, light may be thrown upon the cas that he will be held to be in no blame. SUM let us in all justice sift the mat ter thoroughly before rendering a de cision.

TThe Chicago Live Stock Commission Co. of Kansas City, furnisli the following reixrt of the condition of the market at the Kansas City Stock Yards: i Ka&sas City Stock Yards, .1 . , .May 10, 181W. f Owing to li-rlit receipts the first, !;iX.s Pf tlie week the cattle market ruled ' hiirher wi tli a jjoorl acti ve de mand forvall light and medium weight cattle that were well matured. Heavy cattle are selling better this week than they did last butthe competi tion on that kind is ntt so good as it son other grades. lttakes a prime drove of heavy cattle to sell at $.".10 while good fat steers weighing lir0 to 1200 lbs. will sell at $4.80 to 90. Fat dehorned Westerns weighing 1000 to 1100 lbs sell at $1.60 to 75. " The receipts ol slockers and feeders have not been as heavy" this week as last and there is some reaction in prices on that kind. 'Yard . -traders were heavy losers Jon 1 their boldiiif.. last week, but aflertiiey had sold out by Saturday night '.; they were gooii buyers Mouday; and while-the attend ance of cOuuiry buvers has not been especially heavy, the trade has ruled active on all well bred cattle ofVlhis class. " There is an increased demand lor good fat cows and heifers, but re ceipts are very light. We look for everything except the best heavy cattle to sell at present prices and hope for some improvt uient as the month advances. We had moderate receipts of liot;s the fore part of this week and a shace better market. Some of the heavier packers are not very Tree buyers, es pecially on any little advance in prhjes. ,We had less boss lasfwetk than the week before, and think this week's receipts will put up only a moderate supply. It still takes weil fatted good weight, good quality ho,s to bring $3.80, and light hogs to sell well have to be good quality and rui ning well to barrows.
