Alexander l.nshiray, Nearly I'll Yearn
OliI, llylnir for AVant of Proper Care.
Humane Agent Fuller was notified of
n case of neglect nnd cruelty to Alcx-'(
tmder Lashway, who resides on French'
bill, a short distance from Wllllston, and
Tuesday afternoon Mr. Fuller, accom
panied by a Frea J'ress reporter, made ,
pn Investigation of tho case. On ar
riving In Wllllston everyone told a slm
lar story, tho clicumstances being that
llrs. Lnshway died, two years ago, It was
her request that her husband turn over
Ills farm nnd property to their son-ln-Jaw,
Antoino Miller, with tho undei-'
Handing that Miller was to take earn
nnd provide for Mr. Lash way during tho
remainder of bis life. This, It Is claim
id. Miller has failed to do since last
jping. Mr. Lash way, who Is nearly !0'
years of age, and blind, has had to go1
from house to house In the country beg-1
ping food nnd clothing. Ho has not had
n pair of shoes In many months. Ills
liome consists of an old housu with a
Vox for a bed, I
Monday Mr. Miller, hearing that the'
iiuthorltles had tho ease, took the old!
r.entlcman to St. George, Mr. Ijishway,
protested, wanting to remain and die in1
tho placo where, he had always lived. I
Mr. Miller was firm nnd removed tho
Mr. Lashway has three sons, Alex
ander. Mack and Antolne, nnd one daugh
ter, Mrs. Antolne Miller. Two of these
sons live near the old gentleman and
Antolne in this city. The llrst party met
yesterday was one of Mr. Lashway's sons.
With tears In his eyes he related the
old gentleman's condition. The wife of
this man was seen later and corroborated
the story told by her husband. Mrs
I'hocbe LnFrance, a grandchild, told of
tho pitiful circumstances surrounding her
grandfather's sufferings. A newspaper
woman at Wllllston had done a great
deal to relievo the sufferings of the old
man, and told a similar story,
AVhllo all citizens In the vicinity, who
were interviewed, told the same story
nnd were nil pronounced that the old
gentleman's sufferings wero anything but
human, they had all neglected to report
tho matter to the humane officer before,
being under the Impression that Mr. Ful
ler's duties were to look only after
horses and cows.
Mr. Lnshwny's house Is closed. He bad
repeatedly appealed to the pauper de
partment In Wllllston but Miller had or
dered these officials not to look after
him. According to a statement made by
Mrs. LaFrance, Miller came to bis father-in-law's
homo one Friday and loft
a loaf of bread and then did not show
up for three weeks.
Mr. Fuller will make a full Investiga
tion of the caso and It possible will have
a guardian placed over Mr. I.ashway
and his property. Miller has been In Mr.
Fuller's hands before for alleged cruelty
to horses and cows.

SPRING IN JANUARY.
Almost Unprecedented Weather Condi

The unusual spectacle of open ears
crowded with people clad In many In
stances in spring clothing and often
without any outer wraps was witnessed
In this city Monday afternoon. Open
ears wero run over tho Pine street and
North avenue lino and those who rode
oil them did not suffer the slightest dis
comfort from the cold for, as a matter
of fact, there wns no cold. Tho sun was
shining brightly and the breeze which
was felt most on that section of tho lino
between tho Intervnle and the lnke was
mild and warm. Ono car containing a
Ai'oup of men in straw hals was photo
graphed. The excessive moisture of tho
past row days had tended to revive the
greensward and throughout the city tho
general aspect was that nt early spring
rather than the middle of winter.
Open cars were not the only evidences
of tho mild weather. The steamer Marl
nultn made an unprecedented cruise,

tho city the doors and windows of both
shops and dwolllngs wero wide open to
