W0REICH, LEGALLY DEAD FOR
TWO YEARS, RETURNS.
The man whose disappearance from
his farm in the east part cf Ford
county, in December, 1910,, has be?,n
the subject of constant comment, was
found recently at liberal . acd was
brought to Dodge City. He was re
cognized by a former neighbor, R. L.
Matkins, who remembered that a re
gard of three hundred dollars was out
for Information about him.
Reich admits his Identity. He says
be left home because he was discou

rest if he did not leave the country.
Reich 6aya he did not receive the
-Amount the Heilands promised to pay
him for his farm. '
He Dropped From Sight. .
The disappearance of Otto Reich
la the greatest mystery Ford county
has had in recent years. . He was
about 30 years old at the time of his
disappearance. H was a quiet, in
dustrious farmer. He was unmarried.
There was every reason for the
court to regard Reich as being dead.
When he left home it was about nine
o'clock at night He left the lamp
burning. He lef his horses end
mules penned up In a corral without
feed or water." 'Ha had a number of
checks which he had never cashed.
Every circumstance connected with
the case suggested that he had met
with violence or foul play, or that he
was dead. Now that he has come
back to Hfe matters are badly mixed
up as to his property.
Neighbors are Provoked.
The farmers down in Wheatland
township, Ford county, who spent
time and money making the search
for the missing man, and who. for
over a year worked on thie case, are
now highly indignant to think that all
the time the man they were seeking
Was quietly hiding in a neighboring
And they are mightily relieved that
they didn't do anything rash against
the man whom they openly accused
of having murdered Reich.
At one time, had 'here been a hot
beaded leader it is possible Chris
Heiland would have been lynched, for
the sentiment was strongly agajqst
him, and was thought he had guil

Fortunately there was no lynching

neighbor who appeared with the deed
to the farm after Reich's d:sappear
ance, deeded the property to Thomas
Darcy, administrator of the estate, af
ter judgment was rendered against
him, Hei'and, for $7,900. Darcy sold
the land for $7,900 to the bank at Of

Heiland was allowed $1,000 on. a

an additional $300 in' consideration

Darcy waa allowed $."00 for his ser
vices as administrator, and as much
more was expended as cost of adminis

sister in Excelsior Springs, Ho.,. was
