Lincoln County Man Describes
The Murder as he Saw it.
Several Lincoln county men who
were in Richmond, .Monday, which
wtid court day there, saw the killing.
For u while the reort was current
here tlint the man killed wiib former
Senator George Furris, of Lancas
ter, who is now special messenger
for Governor MeCreury at Frank
fort. Hut this report wus soon
found to be untrue.
Wm. Mnupin, of the Dripping
Springs section, and who bay, he is
n second cousin of the man who
lid the killing, returned to Stanford
from Richmond on the 2:40 tram,
nnil gave u full description of the
unfortunate affair, of which ho was
an v witness. He said that he
did not personally know Hrack Mnu
jin, but knew him to be his cousin.
He described tho t rowdy to a croup
of intcre.Ucd listeners when he cot
oft the train here. Mr. Maupin
said: ,.
'I was Rtar.d:r.s r.csr the livery
stable ju-,1 this side of the court
liou-e, when 1 heard Hrack Maupm.
who wns standing near inc. iov
'There he goes now. 1 guess this is
about as nod n chance as I will
have to net l'im. With this re
mark, he ran his hand into his tup
IHicket and pulled out a pistol, first
lircukinir it to if it wns loaded.
lie walked "l behind the man who.
1 wns afterward told, was named
Fnrn-, and jerked him around. Far
ris threw up his hands mil exclaim
ed: "'For God's sake don't kill me
Hrack '
'However, Hraek's only reply was
to pull the trigger and shoot Far
ris once m the chest. Farris then
started t.i run, and Hrack fired
jigmii four times nt his back. Far
ris fell to the pavement, and Maupin
then went up to bun. and looked at
him and Miid 'I may not have fin
ished vou. so I'll just make sure of
it,' and with that he j-rU.l ' knifo
out of bis pocket' and jabbed the
binds through Fairis' throat.
4 ''TJeie wus n bin crowd on the
streets, und four pnliei-iiiiii uuiek
ly went after Hrack Maupm. lie
fought them off with the butt of
his revolver, and cot away from two
f them, while tning to reload his
pistol, but thev were too many for
liim. and overpoweied him.
"Theie was a b crowd on the
streets, mid I reckon lis many as
two or three bundled people who
-were in that part of Richmond at
I lie time must have ceii the killiiitr.
The intense excitement prevailed
for n while after the killing, as few
were able to discover what the tiou
ble between tho men had been. 1

them; in fact I had known neither,
jilthough o"nirant of tho fact that
Hrack Maupin was mv second cou

Inrge nnd influential faniilv in that
section, and it is said will make u
hard fight to get Hrack Maupin out
of the trouble. Just what the old

has not been denied up Vet, but is
is said to date back ten or twelve

thnt the two nam had home disiigiee

Negro And Develops Rabies,
Physicians Say.
Ed S. EJiim, n prominent vottujf
farmer of the Spniuey section, ot
GniTiird. county, died at his homa
Sunday morning, of whnt many of
tho physicians who saw him diag
nosed as a virulent enso of hydro
phobia. Tho young man is said to
have becii bitten or scratched by a
negro in an altercation in which the
two became engaged nt tho farm vif
Davo Duddcrar, near the Lincoln
countv hue. about two weeks ago.
Little attention was paid to tho in
jury nt tho time.
About a week ago, however, the
early symptoms of rabies developed,
it is said, though tho physicians did
not nt the time suspect that it was
such, incicly thinking that the
young man was doveoping n heavy
fever. When it was too late to give
the Pasteur treatment, it was re
cognized as rabies, and the death of
the young man is said to have re
moved nil doubt as to the character
of the ailment of which ho was a
Calvin Elam, n biother of the un
fortunate boy, was killed by a live
wire iu Paris a short time ago.
Young Elum was just 21 years of
age und wus well cstepmed and liked
by nil who knew him. He wns the
son of Mr. nnd Mrs- W. C. Elam.
Tho nffnir with the negro farm hand
is said. to have been a trifling af
fray, and nothing wns thought of it
nt the time. When he first became
sick, it was thought (lint he was suf
fering from n severe fever, nnd he
was given every attention by the
physicians called nud the most care
ful of nursing. When the infection
became fully developed, a number of
the physicians, still thought that it
was a sort of blood poisoning, but
