Last Tuesday evening Mr. Henry
Eingener bade his family good by
telling his wife that he was going
to Houston to settle up some busi-
ness affairs in that city. He left for
Houston on the 4:25 Central train
and that was the last heard of him
till he was found unconscious on his
back gallery at ten minutes to two
o'clock Monday morning. The family
were awakened by his groans and
hurried to his assistance not know-
ing the nature of his attack and be-
lieving that he had been foully dealt
with. His unconscious lorm was
lifted by gentle and willing hands
and placed in bed. Dr. J. R. Wil-
liamson was sent for with all haste.
The utmost endeavors of the
physician were inadequate to relieve
the dying man and at 8:30 a. m. he
passed away from the world of
which he was tired and surrendered
the life of which he was weary.
Two two-ounce vials labeled
"Laudnum" bought from a drug
firm in New Orleans told only too
well the cause of death.
Two letters were found on the
dead man's person. One written on
0. Bingener's stationery bears date
of Dec 28 1896 as follows:
Bbehham Tec Deo. 28 1896.
To whom this may concern:
I want to herewith state that no
blame shall be left on my folks or
any one else tor the rash act I have
taken. No one is to blame but my-
self. I am tired of this world and
therefore pasB away.
Signed. H. Bixgexeb.
This letter was written in the
English language and enclosed in
the same envelope with the following
letter to his wife written in German:
Dear wife and Son and all whom
it may concern: I 'have only a few
words to say. I will not speak to
you any more verbally. When you
find these words I will not be alive
any more. I am tired of life and have
been for a long time. Pay my dues
in the Schiller Lodge of the Her-
man Sons and the Order of Maca-
bees for the month of January so
you will be able to collect the poli-
cies. I am out of my senses at
times and am delirious. When 3 ou
find me bury me beside my chil-
dren. Then I will be at peace and
will trouble you no longer. I hope
you will be successful and wish you
much bliss and happiness in this
world. You will find my papers in
a box in the iron safe. The keys to
the safe you will find in my pocket.
I will not be able to tell you any
more verbally. And this is all.
The first letter being dated Dec.
28 the day he left for Houston
would suggest the idea that he in
tended to end his -life several days
prior to the commission of the deed.
How he came to be in New Orleans
where the laudnum was procured is
not known as his family thought
him in Houston.
He arrived in Brenham on the 1:45
Central Monday morning and was
accompanied a portion of the way
home by Messrs. Green Morgan and
Frank Levin who were returning
from Hempstead. They did not
notice anything peculiar in his de-
meanor and ho doubtless swallowed
the fatal drug just before reaching
his residence corner School and
Spencer streets in the northern
part of the city.
The news of the suicide spread
over the city with remarkable rapid
ity and added a final Bhock to the
publio'a nerves already unstrung
with the bad tidings with which
Sunday wan so prolific.
A Buntm reporter called at the
residence of the deceased shortly
after it had been invaded by the
ruthless hand of death. The dead
man reposed beneath the bed clothes
looking as if awaiting to be awaken-
ed by tbo breakfast bell so natuitl
and so 'peaceful did he appear. Sur-
rounding him were his weeping wife
and children and a few sympathetic
neighbors. His wife in a voico
broken by many sobs gave the re'
porter all she knew concerning the
detailB of the sad tragedy all of
which is contained in the above
Mr. Eingener was a member of
the board of aldermen having been
elected in April 1S95 and lacking
about three months of having com-
pleted his term. He was a member
of the Sons of Hermann the Knights
of the Maccabees the National Re-
serve and the Ancient Order of
United Workmen and had life in-
surance policies of $3000 in the
Knights of the Maccabees and
S2.000 in each of the others.
He was born Dec. 15 1S56 and
was tnereiore a lew daj-s past lorty
years of age at the time of his death.
The funeral took place from
the family residence at 11 a. m.
Tuesday and interment at the St.
Jacobia church Cemetery. The fun
eral was under direction of the
Knights of the Maccabees.
THE FIRE FIEND.
Xwo Cottages Belonging to the Dwyer
Estate Laid in Ashes Monday
A fitting finale to the various
sensations which characterized the
day waa the clarion accents of the
fire bell which jarred the frosty
atmosphere at about nine o'clock
The fire originated in one of the
row of cottages on the Bouth Bide of
Sycamore street owned by the
The house was occupied by Yel-
lowstone Kitt and the fire is said
to have started from a gasoline
stove but this report could not be
verified. The ravages of the flames
were augmented by a stiff breeze
from the west and spread to every
portion of the building with in-
credible rapidity. In spite of the
prompt response of the various fire
companies the building was com-
pletely enveloped in a seething
mass of flames before their arrival.
The futility of saving the burn-
building was at one apparentand all
hands turned their attention to
the adjoining cottage separated
from the first by a distance of some
twenty feet. This building was oc
cupied by Mr. Cass who is
absent at Cameron and his
family were spending the night with
a neighbor. While the fire boys
manned the hose others broke in the
doors and carried the bonsehold ef-
fects into the street. Soon the en
tire roof of the building was in a
blaze and despite the fact that
three hoses were continually spray
ing it from as many different direc-
tions nothing but a charred shell
remained when the fire was finally
gotten under control.
Mr. W. E. Dwyer estimates the
losses on the buildings at beteen
S1500 and $2000 with no insurance.
The occupants of the buildingB also
lost considerable household goods
some by burning and other by rough
handling in moving them from the
SHOOTING AT GIDDINGS.
C. G. Dement Killed by Joe Tom Robert-
son. A telephone message from Gid-
dings to Deputy Sheriff Robert
Teague Monday announced the
killing of Mr. C. G. Dement by Joe
T. Robertson. Mr. Dement received
several bullets in the melee and
died almost instantly. Farther
particulars were not obtainable.
Both of the men are well-known
in Brenham and are former residents
of Washington county. Mr. Dement
is an uncle of Mrs D. E. Teague
was a gallant soldier in the confed-
erate army and about fifty-five years
Sheriff Teague left for Giddings
on the first train.
Death bt Hrs. Neideraner.
At noon Monday Mrs. G. Neid-
eraner departed this life at her
home three miles north of the city
after a thort attack of la grippe
which settled on her lungs.
The funeral took place at
Prairie Lea cemetery Wednesday
morning at 10:30 o'clock.
Mrs. Neideraurer was in her 54th
year and has been married 37 years.
She was the mother of two children
Mr. John Neideraurer and Mrs. O.
Dornberger. To the -bereaved hus-
band and children the Baskxb ex-
tends eincera sympathy.
