Great excitement was created
last week in Cuero by tho report
that a hole in tho ground without
any bottom had been discoieied in
tho town. Tho natives w ere panic
stricken thinking that "Old Nick"
had established a near and direct
routo to the infernal regions fiom
Cuero on account of a rush of but-
inoso in that part of tho country.
When cooler heads began to in-
vestigate the matter they found
that the hole in tho giound was
caused by a big bed of aunts w hioli
bad been doing business in that
spot. Tho people of Cuero once
mora breathe easy.

In 1832 William Hill of Illinois
was locatod in Missouri on a rich
lead claim A family of Stewards
six in number undertook to drive
him from his claim and in the effort
Hill killed ono of tho Stewarts.
Fully anaio that either ho or tho
remaining five Stewarts must die
and not wishing to further btain
his hands with human blood be
reiolved to leavo tho country. He
therefore took passago on tho Mis-
sissippi for ToxaB. During the trip
ho met and exchanged wives Vfitji
another man aceicraony which
though not legally justified was
not then considered morally wrong.
In the exchange of conjugal mates
Hill also took tho stranger's two
children one of them Fiank by
name. After arriving in Texas ho
obtained a Spanish giant to a
leaguo of land lying on Peach
creek in Gonzales county somo of
the choice if not the best land in
tho county now included in tho
old Spaulding place Maj. Gellhorn
plantation and perhaps part of
the Kokernot pasture and valued
at $15 to 423 an acre. In 1S42
Wm Hill was murdeicd and his
body thrown in a well Tho mur-
dei was supposed to lme been tho
work of a hired assassin at tho in-
stigation of tho Stewait brothers

all to bo the legitimate )ielr of Wm
Hill then Mrmde the first transfer
of the land oi which thoio is any
lccord. Fiank Hill afterwaid mur
deled John Olliver and was hung

Hint man legally hung in Gonzales
county. Tho land then passed

benevolent old gentleman who reg-
istered at tho Mason house as The-
adore Hill Mattoon 111. This man
is tho grandson of the original
Wm Hill and is tbercforo ono of
the diiect heirs to tho property un-
lawfully disposed of by Frank Hill.
Mr. Hill has examined tho records
both hero and at Austin and they
sot forth tho'facts as abovo stated
Ho also hasrecords in proof of the
relation exhisting between Frank
Hill and Wm Hill which Bhow
that Frank Was not tho legal heir
to tho estate. Mi. Hil'ls informa-
tion which lead to the imestiga-
tion was gained from his mother
who in 'turn had been informed
years ago by her husband w ho had
been enjoined to seciecy by his
father in tho letfer informing his
son of his whereabouts. The lettur
