TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. A HORRID DEM). A Eamily Massacred For a fall. Denison, Tex., Aug. 5. Two trap pers passed down Red river last nicht from a trapping expedition and they imparted a honble story. About July is the entire party, con sisting of a man, wife and two little children and two other men left the mouth of Cacke creek and started down Deep creek, a confluence of Ped river, for the purpose of boating down to Fulton, Ark., to dispose of their furr, The party traveled IN TWO FLATllOATS, the man and family in one and the two men in the other After being on river two days one of the boats sprung a leak, which necessitated stopping for repairs, and it was accordingly run ashore and the two trappers spent nearly a day and a half reparing it ere it was able to continue the journey. The other boat proceeded down the river and nothing more was seen of it or its occupants for three daysl when the first boat passed them and anch ored below. The next morning they awaited several hours for their friends and one of them started up the river to see a horrible sight. When he ar rived he was horrified to find the entire party dead and the buzzards were making their morning rr.eil off of the corpses. Abaft lay the father with a bullet hole through his head, with his arms hanging over ihe edge of the open boat. The woman was lying out on the sand bar, fifty feet away, with a great gaping wound through her body the work of a deadly Winchester. The body of one of the little ones hadf almost been devoured by the vultures,, but the cause of its death was plainly visible, for the under jaw was broken and shattered, and the head was only hanging to the body by the tendons tendons aud two muscles of the neck. The neck was broken by a bullet. The body of the other child was found near where the man had made hi camp fire, and the vultures had picked out its eyes and already a swarm of flies had congregated. Near by was, THE CAUSE OF THE MASSACRE. A yearling calf partly skinned told the story. The man had killed the calf for the ostensible purpose of re plenishing his larder. No doubt the act was witnessed by some one who roported the facts and a volley from, the Winchesters of the ever present linemen, who ride along the river to release bogged cattle, told the story.
