Win is restaurant at a Quarter past in Wylye quot o clock this afternoon reeled and fell dead on the floor. A Strong odor of carbolic acid was noticed at once and the crowd that gathered had no doubt that the Man had taken a some of the deadly stuff with suicidal intent. Many of them doubtless hold to same opinion now but a combination of unusual circumstances seems support another theory. The circumstances Are these about eleven o clock or. Estes Ray Elliott living South of the City to a. H. Rieman s in we Rand Avenue and helped to it tips a be heavy Load of Hay which the Yosim ii fan had hauled to or. Riemann while at work he perspire Freel and once or twice staggered a i i slightly. Ike. Elliott thought at first of Dot he had been drinking but he caught no odor of liquor and later c included that the unsteadiness was due to some other cause. After the Hay was unloaded or. Estes came with or. Elliott to Rieman s grocery store on Central Avenue and received his pay for the work just done. He walked out of the store of a Wiott and As he reached the curb put his hand into his right hip pocket and exclaimed quot now i be broke that As he spoke he Drew the fragments of a Small Glass vial two ounce capacity perhaps out of his pocket together with a sack of smoking tobacco which was soaked with liquid and tossed the malodorous handful to the Gutter. Quot what was in it quot or. Elliott asked. / a quot nothing but a Little carbolic acid quot Estes replied. Having said this the Man started up Central Avenue. He staggered somewhat As he walked and officer Lewis seeing his motions started up the Street after him thinking he was drunk. He turned in at the Winter restaurant and fell As already described. Coroner spicely and or. Johnson in who were called soon after he fell. Made a careful examination of the body. There was no Mark of acid on the lips Tongue or Throat lining so far As they could see nor was there any odor either of acid or liquor about the Mouth. The pupils of both eyes were much dilated but the face did not indicate that he had died in any pain. He did not utter a sound upon entering the restaurant and the Only evidence of life observed after he fell was one or two Short gasps. Tie fragments of the bottle which broke in his pocket were examined. The vial bore no Label and the Cork was not new. What purpose he had in carrying the stuff is unknown if the suicide theory be rejected and where the acid was obtained is unknown also. How the Man could have taken acid without some Mark of it being left about his Mouth or Tongue How he could take a Dot a sufficient to kill Hutn quickly and then walk As far As from Rieman s store to Winter s restaurant How he could obliterate the odor of the drug which can be detected Long after death these and other similar questions Rise up and remain to be answered by those who think the Man died by his own hand. The theory that after the exertion of pitching off the heavy new Hay or. Estes died suddenly from sole natural cause would seem to harmonize More fully with the fact of his stagger Long the absence of the odor wow of acid in the Mouth and the other circumstances of the tragedy. Or. Estes was about forty years old. He was a native of Bracken county Kentucky and had lived in Connersville about six years working As a common labourer. He was a hard worker and bore the reputation of a steady and dependable hand. His wife Matilda Estes is somewhere in Ohio now. He leaves three children one daughter who is married and two Small sons who lived with him at Charles Moore s House in East Connersville. The body was taken to Charles Thompson s undertaking establishment soon after the Coroner arrived. Suicide theory Falls. The theory of suicide fell this afternoon when a postmortem examination was made. The Abdomen was opened and the diaphragm together with the heart and lungs was found crowded close up into the top of the thoracic cavity by the liver. This Organ was enlarged to More than twice its Normal size and would probably have weighed twelve pounds. This condition left Little doubt of the cause of his death As the enlargement of the liver interfered with the action of both lungs and heart. The stomach was empty. Carbolic acid explained. The carbolic acid which Estes had is no longer mysterious for it was Learned this afternoon that the Man who suffered from a chronic Tetter on his hands used that drug constantly in a diluted form in the Hope of checking the disease. Postmaster Dehaven has received the government crop report for july 1910. These reports a Liili come monthly and Are displayed of the Post office contain a lot of into mation when studied until one Geis quot the hang quot of them. It May be interesting to know that while last year there were let it 15,062,000 bushels of old wheat stored on the farms in Uncle Domain there Are 38,739,000 this year an indication that the american Farmer is not crowded for Cash and can quot hold on quot to this great Staple till it suits him to sell also that there is no immediate danger of a bread Fame. There has been i per cent More acreage of Winter wheat sown this year than last and seven and three tenths More Spring wheat. The average condition for Winter wheat for ten years past was is and 3-10 per cent. This year the condition of Winter wheat is 81 5-10 or two tenths better than the 10-year average. Corn also is three tenths per cent better than the average but lacking five tenths of one per cent of last year s report. Three and 5-Loths per cent More Oats was sown this year last. Conditions Are reported one tenth of one per cent below the ten year average but that rate will not hold Good in this immediate Vicinity As Oats never looked better than now. Notwithstanding that potatoes were a drug on the Market Only one tenth of one per cent fewer acres were planted this year than Dauchy a of Rolland Murray and wife is dead.

Rolland Murray of Orange township died at the parents Home near Glenwood at five o clock sunday morning. The Little girl had been ailing All her Brief life which was less than three months in duration and for several Days her condition had been such that death would have been no particular Surprise at any hour. At two o clock this afternoon funeral services took place at the House. The obsequies though Brief and simple were fitting and Beautiful. The Large attendance gave evidence of the general sympathy which is Felt for the parents in their bereavement and the Floral tributes were another expression of a similar feeling. Rev.

A very heavy electric storm visited this City last evening Between six and seven o clock there were much Thunder lightning and wind followed by a heavy registered 93 hundredths of an inulin at the government weather Headquarters at the Hibbs drug store. The Oats crop which is nearly Ripe and which is the heaviest for years in this Vicinity suffered greatly from last evening s storm and the rainfall today makes it improbable that it will straighten before cutting time in Many Fields the Straw is Bent Over squarely about a foot from the ground. Farmers think that if the Rains should be followed by Sunshine for a Day or two the Grain May be saved though the trouble in harvesting and threshing will be greatly increased. Other damage. The Light heat amp Power company suffered somewhat from Lightn ing and Power was off for a Short time but was soon restored. Some other slight damage was done but it was Trival. The storm else Niere.

He will take charge of this work Early in september. Or. Alzeno was selected out of a Large number of applicants for the position a fact which is As pleasing to All his friends As it is complimentary to him.

Of An organization of More than temporary importance is being formed in Fayette county for a purpose which will meet with general Sanction. It is called the Fayette fish and game club and it is said that nearly one Hundred members Are now enrolled. The organisation is not yet Complete but the details am1 eing steadily worked upon and Virea by the plan As a whole is the minds of any one of who Are Active in the to of launching the new society. A the purpose of the club is to protect the fish and tif game in Payette a the organi Zatigue Rigi lifts amp a it obligatory upon eve of in Liniver not Only to obey the Laws strictly but to re Portia by quot and every violation of which quot he might gain knowledge. The club will retain an attorney to assist the prosecutor in All cases that come to trial and will probably go a step farther and employ special detectives or spies to go into the Woods and Fields and along the streams of the county and bring to Headquarters a report of any transgressions of fish and game Law they May see. The membership As far As it has been enrolled is perhaps two thirds made up of Connersville men but the remaining third has in it representatives from every or nearly every Rural township. The names of members As Well As of the organizers has been kept secret with the idea that better results in the Way of the apprehension of fish and game Sharks could be out irined than if the latter knew that an organized plan for their capture was Laid. However that May be the plan exists and the members Are already at work. The Wanton Slaughter of fish and game is a species of barbarity for which few people will even try to Oft or an excuse. The organization of the Fayette fish and game club i l be welcomed in general and from present prospects it will soon attain a strength and thoroughness of system that will make the dynamite tie dragger of the Seine the Slayer of Mother squirrels and brooding Quail and All the other members of that despicable company afraid to show their faces out of doors.
