Friday night John Kersey shot an
other negro named Henry Beazley at
the former's home in Duncantown.
Kersey was drunk and Beazley, to
gether with, several other neighbors,
were trying to get him into the house.
Keskey, in his frenzy, went in the
house and brought out an old army
musdet. His friends, Beazley amcng
the number, continued pleading with
Kersey to go in the house and quit
i aising a disturbance. Without a word
of warning Kersey turned and fired at
Beazley. Judging from the enormous
hole torn in his breast, the gun must
have been loaded with slugs. The
charge entered Beazley's right breast;

Saturday morning, when he was lodg

always been friends, and Beazley was

DR. W. S. O'NEAL
Dies at Ills Home In this City after a
ATter about one week's illness and
intense suffering, Dr. W. S. O'Neal
died at his residence, on Lexington,
street, Tuesday afternoon at 4:33 o'clk
He had been subject to attacks of
asthma all his life, and at times the
suffering was great, but the last spell
was dec'dedly the most severe he ever
had. He was on the streets Friday
evening attending to some important
business and became overheated. He
went home and suffered greatly thro'
the night. Saturday he was ab'e to
go to his office, some fifty yards from
the house, but that night was taken
much worse and the disease went into
bronchial pneumonia. Those who
attended him say they never witness
ed such agony as he suffered. He grew
rapidly worse and was delirious at
times until the end came.
Dr. O'Neal was born at Verona
Boone county, Ky., sixty-two years
ago. He graduated from the Ohio
Medical College in bout 1SC1. In 18S5
he located in Lancaster where he has
since practiced his profession success
fully. He was an unusually attentive
physician to his patiants and nev
gave up a case while there was the
least ray of hope of saving life. He
was one of the most sympathetic and
kind-hearted men it has ever been our
pleasure to know and wc can soy,
from personal experience, that he put
his whole soul into his work when
waiting on the sielc. fcevcral j-ears
ago he remained with the writer of
this article one entire night while we
were down with t3'phoid fever, and al
though unable to find a pulse on our
bo.ly for eight hour, he never gave
up, and worked with untiring energy
until he succeodea in bringing us
out We merely mention tl.is fact
as a speclm -n of his zeal and plucl
as a physician.
He was a Baptist and a leading fig
ure in the management of the local
church. He gave close attention to
his own affairs, and it can be said of
Dr. O'Neal that he never dabbled in
other people's business. He was
Mason, but not affiliated with the lo
ne leaves a widow and one daugh
ter, Mrs. F. L. Hubble. He has four
brothers and one sister. They are
