Wagoner Snoots and Instantly Kills Wm, Cut-shaw. WAGONER SURRENDERS TO i FFICER Is Tried by Justices, who, After Carefully Hearing Evidence, Discharge the Ac? cused From Custody. On last Thursday, the 24th ult., about noon, J. M. Wugoncr shot and killed William (Jutshaw, at Adams' saw mill, on Beech Fork of Dry Fork, in this county. Cutshaw came to this county from Ohio and Wagoner hailed from North Carolina. The two men had been associated in run? ning the saw niill,and Cutsha\v,who was an unmarried man about twenty five years old, boarded at the house of Wagoner. It seems that Wagoner became jealous of Cutshaw's attentions lo Mrs. Wagoner and ordered him to leave, but Cutshaw failed or declined to go away. It is supposed that Wagoner concealed himself in the loft above the room in which Cutshaw was shot and shot him from the steps leading up to the loft. After the shooting Cutshaw ran into the yard, about ten steps from die house, and fell dead. The sup possition is that he was shot with a Winchester rille, the ball penetrated the breast just above the heart and passed through the body. Wagoner fled immedi? ately after the shooting. On the afternoon of the same day Justice B. F. Riley summoned a jury and held an inquest, The jury was as follows: Riley Stevenson, Wm. Jone?, Joseph Reynolds, James Barnett, ThomRs Sayers, Thomas Watson, Charles Grimster, Geo. Harrnan Cephus Williams, M. Catron, J. Monti more, Jr., and Dr. D. R. Johnson. The jury could get but little evidence and its verdict was that Cutshaw had been killed l>y some unknown party. On Tuesday morning Wagoner surren? dered to Constable D. H. Payne, and was brought before Justices B. F. Riley, James Whitt and Kiah Harrnan for a preliminary trial. The accused was defended by S. M. B. Cuulling. Esq., and the justices, after hearing all the evidence, discharged the prisoner, we suprose concluding that his act was justifiable. A Worthy Man Gone to Rest. In former issues of this paper we mentioned the very serious illness of Prof. H. L. Benton at the Tazewell Seminary. From the beginning of his sickness his friends had great fears ns to the result, and on Thursday morning, the 24th ult., a little after seven o'clock, he quietly passed away. Prof. Benton came to our town laet Fall and entered upon bis duties as a teacher at the Seminary. He came with the highest testimonials, and his work and life in our community more than measured up to the estimate placed upon him by those who knew him in other fields and testified to his excellent qualifications as a teacher and personal qualities as a man. During the ten months he lived in this community, by his uniformly gentlemanly demeanor and modcEt manner, he ma^le notl ing but friends,and died enjoying the esteem of all who had come in contact with him. His death was a very sad one. He had just completed his work here and had Leen appointed to an important position in Masschusetts, that of Superin? tendent of schools for the towns of West Stockbridge, Sheffield, New Marlboro and Egremont in that State. He had prepared to go North, but was taken sick two days before the lime fixed for his departure. It was unfortunate and sad that he should have been separated from his parents and other relatives at the the time of his death, but he was kindly looked after and cared for by his friends here. On Friday afternoon Mr. Fred Andrew Benton, ef Earlville, N. Y., brother of the deceased, arrived here, and the same evening at G o'clock funeral services were held in the chapel of the Seminary by Rev. W. W. Rull. At the conclusion of these services the remains were taken to the east end cemetery and laid tenderly to rest. Hiram Lincoln Benton was born in Shelburne, Chenango Co., N. Y., in November.18G?. He attended the public schools of Earlville, N. Y., graduated from Colgate Academy in 1883 and from Colgate University in 1888, receiving Bachelors degree from the last mentioned institution. He taught one year before graduation to defray his expenses at college and worked against adverse circumstances throughout his course, lie taught continously from his graduation in 1888 until his death, He was Principal of Waterford High School for several years, also at Saratoga Springs and at Parish, N. Y., one year, and was for two veal's Superintendent of schools at Thomasten, Conn. Death of a little Child. Lawrie Goodwin, infant daughter of Mr. and Mre. H. W.

Big Rock, Va., June 30th, 1897, To the Republican. I am pleased to see the interest you are showing on the subject of good roads. Your articles have placed some facts and figures before the people that have not heretofore been generally known. The puplic roads are used by every citizen, and are of the first importance, or should be.as the success of allothers is measured by the improvement of the roads. Farms have been improved one hundred per cent, in Tazewell county in the last fifteen years, mills have improved five huudred percent., factories have improved eight hundred per cent., shipments of material and hauling eight huudred per cent. All these enter? prises have had an inciease of capital annually. Their steady advancement each year, and the general improvement which has resulted, has occasioned a call for more wagons and buggies and more travel on the public highways. Hence the necessity for more road improvement. To have that we should be as much interested in the improvement of public roads as we are in our private enterprises. As we add capital to the improvement of farms, ma? chinery, mills, factories, stores, mining and lumber enterprises it makes a greater demand for more money to improve the county highways. Pennsylvania has been spending j4S. per mile on its roads for the last fifteen years, and its roads are not in a satisfacto? ry condition. We are spending about $3 per mile. You can't improve farms,facto? ries, mills, stores or anything without an . increased use of funds. So an improve j ment of the roads will call for more money , than is now at the command of the county J authorities. The improvement should not be local but general. Give Tazewell good roads and good schools and it will j double the value of her real estate in five years. Respectfully, W. L. C. BlKKK. Mr. C. L. Hasbrouck, a druggist at Men don, Mich., says all of the good testimon? ials that have been published by the manu? facturers of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy could be duplicated in that town.
