Killed in a Runaway
On Wednesday a telegram was re
ceived from Blue Hill reiiicsting tho
presence of the coroner and stating
that a man was killed No further
particulars were stated and it left the
people of this city in doubt as to what
might hae happened, many believing
it might have been murder. Coroner
.Jos. Waiien and Shoriil Riinchey im
mediately departed for that place to
seo what was up ami upon theii return
tho following facts lu the ease were
learned A man by the 11:11110 of .lohu
G. Anderson who wasa former ic.-idcnt
of Lawrence but who lias been residing
in Illinois for the past two years had
arrived in the state and none to his
old home at Lawrence. Having a sis
ter in lilue Hill he stalled to walk to
that place anil had got as far as the
tarm ot .J. F. McNeer whole there went
Mime tl.ie-hets at work, one or more of
whom he was acquainted with having
followed that business himself while
living near Lawrence. Mr McNeer
told him that if lie would wall until
after supper he would hitch a horse to
the cart and drive him over to Illtm
Hill, the oiler beinir accented. While
hitching up Mr. McNeer told tho man
that the hor-o had never been driven
but hi' thought tliov would get along
all right, and they started tho Iioimo
scorning to go all right. No tumble
was had i.ulil they started dtwu a hill
when the lior.-e kicked and reared ami
became iinniaiiageablo. Anderson
took the Hues from McNeor and en
deavored to bring the maddened horse
to a hall but all to no purpose. After
going for some distance McNeer was
thrown from or jumped from the cart
Anderson still remaining hi thu cart.
Somo tune later tno norse was stopped
on tho road bv a farmer by tho name
of Jos. Hubank and it was then dis
covered that Anderson had either
jumped or been thrown from the cart,
was entangled in 1110 lines ami uau got,
his leg fastened In tho wheel and had
been drawn along on the groui.d for
some distanco thus meeting (loath in a
horrible manner. His sister in lilue
Hill was notified and would not be
lieve that the man was her brother as
sho had received no news as Ut his
being in Nebraska or as to his coming,
but on being taken to the spot she
found the news too true. It was
elicited at tho coroner's Inquest which
was hold at RI110 Hill, the body having
been taken to that place, thai the man
had stated while at the homo of Mo
Neerthutho was on his was to Itluo
Hill to surprise his sislor. McNoorand
tho friends of the dead man wishing to
have no doubt in the minds of the peo
ple as to tho ninn meeting death by ac
cident iiHked that 11 post, mortem be
liohl and tho coroner was therefore
telegraphed for. The verdict was re
turned according to the facts, that the
man received a fracture of tho skull

aboo. The deceased is married and
