MRS. W1SECARVER A SUICIDE.
Shot Herself Through the Heart Mon
Mrs. Cora Wiseearver, wife of Hump
WiHcearvor, was fonnd dead in bed
Tuesday morning, ut her home three
Joor north of the high school build
ing. Everything indicated that she
had been dead for several hours.
It seems that Mrs. Wiseearver told
ker husband Monday evening that she
was going to the country. Husiness
kept Mr. Wiseearver down town until
after midnight and when he went
home he was accompanied by a young
man who had been working for him
in the restaurant. Upon arriving at
the house they found the door locked
and, as Mr. Wiseurvcr's key refused to
work in the lock, they forced an en
trance through a window. Upon en
tering the room they found it in dis
order, some of the chairs having been
overturned. They thought nothing of
this, however, and retired to Hump's
room, which they occupied together
luring the remainder of the night.
Late Tuesday morning when Mr.
Wiseearver arose he had occasion to
pass his wife's bedroom, and upon
glancing in saw her lying upon the
bed with her clothes on, and it im
mediately Hashed upon him that some
thing was wrong. He called his com
panion, and when they entered the
room they saw that Mrs. Wiseearver
As there were no signs of struggle
in the room it was surmised that bho
boil either died of heart failure or
taken poison. At the imruebt held
Tuesday afternoon only a superficial
examination of the body was made,
and preparations were made for an
untoysy to bo hcl:? 'Jluef.d?y "wV.ng to
determine the cause of death.
This was rendered unnecessary, how
ever, for when Undertaker Kd Amack
went to prepare the body for removal
to bis uiidertakinir establishment he
discovered a revolver lying by her
side. Upon a closer examination of
the body it was found that she had
been shot through the heart, and the
corner's jury returned a verdict that
she came to her death by her own
hand. The only evidence contradic
tory to the suicide theory was a ram
bling note left by the deceased which
showed her mind to have been slightly
that "Will and Sam" be summoned,
and that no one touch her until they
arrived, and also stated that "he will
kill me in ten minutes." The vague
character of the note, which was
written on the back of an old en
velope, plainly hhowed that it was the
product of a disordered mind, and it
had no influence with the jury.

Mrs. H. I). Russell, accompanied by
her husband, came down to Red Cloud
Thursday from their homo on Farmers
creek, northwest of Inavalo, in answer
to a telephone message informing her
that a warrant had been issued for
her arrest. She was taken before
Judge Heed, where she pleaded guilty
to the charge of having threatened
Kliucr Fogg with a revolver, and was
bound over to Hie district court In the
sum of 8100. She gave bond and was
released. It appears that there Is a
private road running across the Rus
sell farm, which is used by some wf
neighbors as a shortcut. Last Sun
day, as Fogg was passing along thH
road, Mrs. Russell came out with a
gun and chased him as far as t lie home
of Noah Harvey, where he took ref
uge and persistently refused to re
spond to her Invitation to come out of
the house. Yesterday's arrest was the
outcome. After the trial, both parties'
served written notice upon each other
to keep off their land.
Mr. and Mrs. Russell are newcomer
in this locality, Mr. Russell having
come out here from Chicago last April,
his wife following him later. They
like the country very well, but they
have met with very some puzzling
phenomena which they are at a losi
to explain. For instance, their hogs
have a habit of mysteriously disap
pearing and never more being seen or
heard of. Several of their choicest
porkers have disappeared, the disap
pearances having occurred in the dark
hours of night, they having apparent
ly vanished Into thin air evaporated
as It were. Diligent Inquiry has failed
to reveal any trace of them, and Mr.
and Mrs. Russell have been forced to the
conclusion that there is something iu
the atmosphere which causes their
hogs to "melt" back Into the universe.
This phenomenon certainly is interest
ing and would be a fit subject for Investigation.
