JLewis There was a shocking tragedy commitleed Monday morning at an early hour at the home of Al 'Toss, a half mile .west of Cicero. Harry Hiatt, a young man, resident of Cicero, shot his- wire through the heart and she dropped dead in her tracks. Hiatt is reported to be a worthless fellow and had failed to support the wife-and two children, they going to'the home of her father, Al Voss and taking the children. She had been there for some three mpnthp. and while she had some fears of her husband she,is not thought to have entertained fears that he would follow her to the home of her father. Details of the crime are to t.he effect that Hiatt left' Cicero early Monday morning, going to the home of the Voss family. Mr. Voss was at the barn doing some work and when Hiatt entered the house it is said the wife divined his intention's and at- At the home of their parents, M| ahd-Mrs. M.;'G.

She fell dead and Voss turned the weapon upon himself, firing a bullet into his forehead, but the ball glanced and rippdd the flesh from the upper center ot the forehead to the lower part if the scalp, not breaking the bone and- doing no harm asidt* from .starting the blood. It is plain that Hiatt had carefully laid his plans. It was his intention to kiil his wife and then take* his own -life. He is said r.o have made no attempt to escape, the marshal of Cicero arresting him and holding hirri until' the Sheriff of Hamilton county could reach there and take him in to, custody. While the young man was being held at the little hall in Cicero awaiting the arrival of the sheriff it is. said there were many threats of lynch law and all that was needed at that time was a -leader. The sheriff got Hiatt out of town at the earliest, possible moment. Hiatt; and his wife had been.married for sevei'al years' and two children survive the mother. Hiatt was regarded about Cicero as a worthless character and it was .known that he would not provide for the wife and little ones. They were forced to return to the home of the wife's father owing to the neglect of Hiatt. ; giiests. The telling of these wishe! wjis the.occasion of much merriniei aild jolity among the crowd.
