Charles Hutchinson was urrestod
last Friday at Dave Kaloy's farm, six
milos southeast of Hed Cloud, charged
with tho uiurdor of Ell Foasel of
Nuckolls couuty, and circumstances
point strongly to his guilt.
Last fall Ell Pcasel disappeared
from his home southwest of Bostwick,
about Uftoon miles east of Rod Cloud,
and it was given out by his house
keeper that ho had gouo to Kansas
City to visit his bou. A brother of
Mr. Foasel hecamo suspicious of foul
play and Instituted inquiries No trace
of Mr. Feasel could bo found, aud sub
sequent investigation led to tho arrest
of Ills housekeeper, Mrs. Hutchinson,
her sou Charles, aged 21, and Hurley
Peasol, a uophow. Thoy wore given a
hearing and discharged from custody,
thero being no evidence to show that
a crime had been committed.
This year tho Peasol placo is boiug
farmed by man named Stanley, tiud
ono day last weok, whilo plowing in
a field he discovered what appeared to
have been a newly opened grave. Lying
in and about tho grave woro found
a human hand, some hair from a man's
head, part of a coat with au ompty
whisky bottle iu a pocket, and other
pieces of clothing Tho authorities
woro at once notified.
Tho circumstances which led to tho
arrest of Charles Hutchinson last Fri
day aro a llttlo out of tho ordinary.
Up to about the 4th of May Hutchin
son had been working for tho Henry
brothers, whoso placo Is near tho Pea-'
sel farm. When ho saw Stanley plow
ing in tlio Held where tho grave was
afterward found, Hutchinson pleaded
sickness, quit work aud ciuno to Rod
Cloud. On the evening of May 5 ho
went to .Johnston's livery stable aud
ordered a rig, but later changed his
mind, saying ho would take tho rig
Tho following day, Friday, May 0,
bo appeared at the barn about 0:30 in
the evening and hired a rig, saying ho
was going to tlio Starko ranch at Am
boy. Henry Bayless saw liiin starting
out with tho toam and asked him if ho
was going us far in Guido Rock,
Hutchinson replying that ho was. Mr.
Bayless bad been summoned to Rod
Cloud as a juror and wanted to go to
Guide Rock that night and return in
time for court next morning. Hutch
inson assured Uayloss that ho would
bring him back in time, but Bayless
was afraid to tako tho risk and Hutch
inson drove uway alone. Saturday
morning about 0.30 ho roturnod tho
lig to thestablo, paid tho regular feo
for a trip to Amboy and immediately
left tho barn.
Tho toam bad tho appoarauco of
having a long drive, nnd when the em
ployes of thu barn began to unhitch
thoy noticed a terrlblo stench oma
Dating from tho body of tho buggy aud
the cushions. Llttlo atteutiou was
paid to tho matter, howovor, uutil

opened grave and tho rearrest of Mrs.
Hutchinson and Hurley Feasel in

six miles southeast of Rod Cloud,
whoro ho was arrostod last Friday
evening at milking titno by Shoritl
MoArthur, on information furnished
by tho sherilfof Nuckolls county. Ho
was taken to Nolsou on tho early train
The night Hutchinson hirod tho rig
ho told Bayless that ho would spend
tho night at tho Henrys'. Investiga

R.ead This Carefully
I am making lots of Farm Loans.
There are reasons for this. I can close a
loan for you in three days after taking your
application, for these reasons:
You do not have to wait and pay for a
man to examine the land. My company has
oceans of money. You do not wait for them
to sell your loan in New York or London
before getting the cash.
Yon can Pay Off at Any Time,
without giving a day's notice of your inten
tion so to do. All other companies require
from 30 to 60 days notice on this point.
I have so many different plans for making
loans that some one is bound to suit. No
one can give better rates.
