tea o'clock Friday night the neighbors
of Hugh B. Farmer, who live about
eight miles south of here, saw that his
house was on fire, and on going to the
scene they found thn entire building
completely enveloped In flames. Thn
house was built of logs, and looking
Into thn main room thoy saw Parmer's
dead body burning to a crisp, but all ef
forts to take It from tho burning build
ing worn futile, and after thn Urn only
cbarred frsjrmnnts remained.
For several years past Farmer had had
a number of negro tenants, on his place
some of whom ho reeently detected la
stealing from him and at once had them
limvo his place. Tho first theory after
thn Ore was discovered was that a coal
oil lamp had exploded and burned
Fanner and his house, but later develop
ments lead to the theory that some of
tho thieving negroes murdered him for
his money, and on account of their ill
feeling set fire to the house to destroy
all evidences of tho crime.
Farmer hsd two pot dogs and after the
fire the bones of ono of the animals
wero taken from the smoldering em
bers. The other was found on the place
alive with his bslr saturated with coal
oil. The deud man Friday purchased a
gsllon of roal oil at a little store aesr
hlsplacn and it Is thought the murderers
used this oil to flro tbe building and
poured it on tho two dogs after they had
killed their master, but that one of them
escaped from thu house when the' dor
The terrible affair has caused Intense
excitement among the people of this lo
cality and no effort will bo spared to un
ravel ftie mystery with which it Is sur
rounded. Tho unfortunate man was a bachelor
about sixty-five years of sgn and lived
all alone. He came to this section from
County Wicklow, Ireland, about thirty
Sears ago where he was educated for an
IpUcopil minister. His family were
wealthy and aristocratic people, and be
cause they refused to permit him to
marry his mother's pretty housemaid,
with whom he had (alien deHpcrutuly in
love, it Is said ho liecame embittered
agalnit them and left his native land.
Soon after his sweetheart was wedded
to another. After he came to this
country he received a largo, sum of
money, part of which he invented In tho
Inn farm of about 400 acres near this
city, on which he had lived as a rccluto
for the past thirty years. Ho also pur

counties and had considerable money

The deceased had no relative hern so
far as can bo learned and tho heirs to his
property In all probability live In Ire

but waa usually quite reticent and was

its history before. The agricultur
ists of the great Missouri valley
are bxkiy paying interest on
more than three thousand millions of
dollars. The farmers have to pay alL
tbe expen ea of all this wealth aa a.
rule In this country. Not only stock
men, but agriculturist have assembled,
here to devise a way of means wbereby
the laborer cau get t ereal profit of bis.
labors. Methinks I hear Jsy Gould
and the members of the 'Big Four
saying, 'What are you going to do
about it gentlemenV The man who
finds n remedy will go down in history
as n wiser man than Solomon.' "
Mr. Norman J. Colman.of St Leuls,

ticularly confined his talk to combines)
and trusts and bore' down on the "Big

upon the stock raisers of this country
