With Ills Hands Tied mid
Rock Suspended From His
Neck
a
Wm Handy a young colored man
who lived in the Old Apple Jack
liouseon the Versailles pike opposite
the residence of Mr Albert Jeffers
disappeared from his home on Friday
night of last week and was not seen
again until his dead body was found
floating in Blacks pond three miles
from the city about noon Wednes
day When the corpse was taken
from the water it was discovered
that the hands were securely tied
together at the wrists with a stout
leather strap and that his pants had
been removed a flat rook weighing
about thirty pounds had been fasten
ed in the seat of the same and then
the legs of the pants tied about his
neck so that the rook would lie upon
kis breast and weigh the body down
The body had been in the water so
long that gas had formed causing it
to float and when first seen was
some distance from shore but was
driven to the bank by a stiff breeze
blowing at the time
Handy had not been well all sum
mer and was troubled with severe
pains in the hoad for whioh he was
under medical treatment and when
lie first disappeared it was thought
that his mind was affected and ho
had wandered away Searoh was
accordingly made for him in the
eastern part of this county and in
floott but with no avail
It cannot bo said that Handy
drowned himself even if demented
for ho could not possibly have tied
his own hands in tho way they wore
although ho could easily have placed
the stone about his nook and it was
evident to the jury when Ooroner
Dehoney held an inquestWednesday
afternoon that ho had been foully
dealt with and they brought in a
verdict that he came to his death by
drowning at the hands of some party
or parties to tho jury unknown
The murder and the cause for the
same is shrouded in mystery and
should be investigated by the next
grand jurj We understand that a
lady living on the Versailles pike
near Hoges Station says thaton the
night Handy disappeared from
home a party of men passed her
house having in charge a negro man
who was crying and begging them
to let him go
Sunday Morning Fire
About one oclock Sunday morning
flro broke out in the second story of
the store room occupied by
Mr Jose Aubrey as a meat
store on Broadway and before
the flames could be subdued by the
department the house was damaged
to the amount of about six or seven
hundred dollars The fire originated
near a partition ran up tho same and
got in between the oeiling joists and
roof damaging both ceiling and roof
to such an extent that they will have
to bo renewed The house is owned
by Mr James Fitzpatrick who has
insurance sufficient to cover tholoss
Mr Aubrey suffered damages to his
stook of only about twenty five or
fifty dollars
Mr J 0 Boswell one of tho best
known and most respooted citizens of
Browuwood Texas suffered with
diarrhoea for a long tlrne and trlod
many different remedies without ben
efit until Chamberlains Oolic Oholo
ra and Diarrhooa Remedy was used
that relieved him at once For sale

JTOUND DROWNED
Truehart Drowned
William Truehart colored who
was for a number of years an em
ploye of Mr H R Williams was
drowned in the river just across from
Messrs Choate Grahams mill Mon
day morning He was last seen about
4 oclock that morning when he came
out of the house where he lived on
Taylor Avenue opposite the resi
dence of Mr H G Banta Some time
during the day little Albert Ziegler
went down to the river to go fishing
and found a bat and cane lying on the
bank which he recognized as belong
ing to Truehart and immediately re
ported the find to Lewis Black a
colored man who lived in the same
house with Truehart After report
ing his suspicion to the Ooroner that
Truehart was drowned Blaok took
the hat found on the bank and threw
it into the water when it floated
down stream a short distance and
then began to circle around Black
began dragging the river at tho
point where tho hat was circling and
soon recovered the body It
is supposed that Truehart committed
suioido as he was in such a physical
condition that he could do no manual
labor and was heard to say on Sun
day ovoning that he had rather die
than go to the poor house Only a
short time ago he was found in the
river nearSalenders wharf by Officer
Gordon and bridge keeper Tobo

dren will undoubtedly be of interest
to many mothers She says I spent
several weeks in Johnstown Pennsyl
