WaUer HORRIBLE HOMICIDE OF HENRY HENDRIX Prescott the Scene of One of Most Deplorable Trage dies in Its History. WILL HENQRtX KILLS BROTHER Feud Between Brothers in Which the Older Slew Younger in Affray. Henry Hendrix is dead. Two shots from a pistol in the hands of his brother, Will Hen drix, penetrated his body. Last Monday evening, a few minutes past 3 o'clock, the sad dest tragedy that ever happened in Prescott occurred, when Will Hendrix shot and almost instantly killed his brother Henry. NO ONE PRESENT. There were no eye-witnesses to shooting, the father of the two men had started to leave the store, which was owned by the father and sons to get officer to come in and settle a quarrel that was going on between the two boys. Just as the older Hendrix was going out of the door the pistol shots rang out and he did not see the shooting. Henry lived a few minutes but did not make any statement as to the cause of the tragedy. WAS ON EVE OF WEDDING. The young man who was shot was to be married the next day (Tuesday night) to one of the most popular young ladies in the city.MissBettie Brown,and when the sad news was conveyed to her she almost went into hysterics. BURIED IN WEDDING SUIT Henry had just carried home his wedding suit that morning and instead of wearing it on the mast happy event of a young man’s life he was buried in it. PICAYUNE FORCE DEPLORE IT. Probably there is no one out side of the immediate family and the young lady to be married de plore the sad event more than The Picayune force. Miss Bettie has been in the employ of this paper for oyer two years and is a lady of the highest type, a willing, pains taking worker, therefore the en tire force extends her their deep est heartfelt sympathy as well as the father, mother and sisters of deceased.

Officer C. B. Moon got on track of the supposed thief and found the animal as above stated. The supposition is that some one wish ing to cross the river did not make the same mistake as the old one-eyed fellow who “Went to the river and couldn’t get across And jumped on a nigger and thought he was a hoss.” Notwithstanding all this, how ever, Mr. Huff was put to some trouble in finding his animal. un DR.
