A Common Paper File Forced Into the
Brain Causing Instantaneous
Death Some Adverse
Sunday afternoon Justice Calhoun
was informed that Mr. Max Brauner
had been discovered dead in hia bed at
his residence in South Austin about a
mile southwest from the bridge.
Air. Calhoun Dr. Lewright and
umers immediately went to the place
and found the report true.
On a bed in a small room of an un
finished house Mr. Brauner was found
dead. He was on his back

Tuesday ; on Tuesday evening he said
he was feeling very bad and left. I
saw him again on Wednesday and
after some conversation he prom-
ised to see me again the next day
Thursday but he did not meet me and
I went over to his house in South
Austin some time after 12 o'clock but
did not find him and I came back to
town. I did not see him that day but
heard he was in town quite sick.
Friday after dinner I went out to his
house and found him in bed sick with
high fever and he appeared to be very
sick and nervous. He asked me to
make him some coffee which I did. I
left him about 4 o'clock promising to
see him again the next day. Saturday
I went over about 1 o'clock. The
front door of the house. was locked. I
knocked and he called to me
to come to the window that
he was too sick to get up.
I got in through the window and
found hint quite sick in bed trembling
3haking and apparently suffering a
great deal. I asked him what was the
matter and he replied: "I am very
bad off" and asked me to make him a
cup of coffee which I did. He drank
the coffee and ate an egg and he said
he felt better. He then said: "Char-
lie this is Saturday and I know you
want some money ; but I have none in
the house." However he gave me an
order for $2 and I left. He sent by
me a note to Mrs.Petreof the St Louis
house requesting her to send him
some soup Sunday. I asked him if I
should send for a doctor but
he objected saying he thought
that he would soon get better.
He requested me to see Mr. Philip
Bruckmann and tell him that he
Brauner would try and come in Mon-
day and settle some business with
him. He also requested me to return
Sunday and let him know what Bruck-
mann said about it. As I was leaving
Mr. Brauner called me back to him
and said he wanted to shake hands
with me and tell me good bye. I
noticed a very peculiar expression on
his face and it puzzled me no little.
Sunday I went out to Brauner's
about 1 o'clock from the St.
Louis hotel with a bucket of soup.
I reached the house but found the
doors all locked. I could get no reply
to my knocks so went around to the
window of a room ; it was up and I
crawled through into the kitchen or
room where he cooked. I called but
got no answer. I then proceeded to
his room. On entering it I saw him on
his bed lying on his back. I spoke
to him but he did not reply. His
hand was out from under the quilt
and I took hold of it and asked what
was the matter. His hand was warm
but he did not speak. I then saw that
he was dead. I felt his wrist and his
heart but could feel no beats. I then
left and notified others of his death.
Mr. Fischer who lives in South
Austin and who was a friend of Mr.
Brauner's stated to a Statesman re-
pc rter Sunday afternoon that in a
conversation he had with the deceased
on Thursday he (the deceased) com
plained and said he was tired of life
and Mr. Fischer so testified yesterday
Dr. Lewright who was called to see
the deceased by Coroner Calhoun
made a post mortem examination
and in his testimony gave it as his
opinion that the deceased could not
have committed the deed himself:
First Because he could not thrust
the wire with sufficient force to have
caused it to penetrate the skull as deep
as it did.
Second That the wound located as
it was must have caused instantaneous
death and his hand would have been
found in the immediate neighborhood
of the instrument used when in fact !
one was folded over the chest and the
other across the bowels.
THE BOBBERY THEORY.
Mr. Brauner was a carpenter and
had some skill as a draftsman and
architect. He followed his profession
in this city. He superintended the
construction of Mr. Charles Newnings
elegant residence and was considered
a good workman.
A year ago he erected a small but
very neat appearing residence for him-
self on a lot not far from Bouldin's
creek and about a mile southwest of
the city. This buildiug he had not
completed. None of the inside work

The house sets on a high elevation
in a clump of cedars and overlooks
the yard of a neighbor hard by but
across a ravine which separates the
In the house Mr. Brauner had lived
alone for probably over a year.
His surroundings and comforts were
poor indeed. Scattered through the
house were pieces of. lumber and
there was barely enough of furniture
and bedding to indicate that a human
being lived on the premises.
Certain it is there was nothing in
side or outside the premises to attract
a person bent on robbery.
The house commands a view of a
much frequented highway and fronts
close upon a road which is often trav

Again there were hatchets and axes
and a variety of tools all about the
house and with such convenient im

would harly have armed himself with

Whatever may be said about
a 'bloody robber he is
not such a fool as to
arm himself with a miserable bent

as easy to get hold of as it was in
From' all the surroundings and the
well known character of the man the
murder theory will hardly hold water
yet' it has been advanced.
THE SUICIDE THEORY.
The suicide theory is much the
stronger of the two.
The man had been ill for some days
and he complained much about his
He suffered.and from the testimony
of witnesses he suffered intensely.
To his friend Mr. Fischer he said
he was tired of life.
To Mr. Resegger who called to see
him Saturday afternoon and whom
he called back to shake hands with
and say good-by he looked curious.
Mr. Resegger says the expression on
his face puzzled him. He could not
explain it. It was startling and inde-
scribable. Was it the reflex of. a soul bent on

education. He was quick at figures

Mr. Brauner was a native of bilesia
where he has relatives now living. So

AN ALLIGAT0K STORY.
A TRUTHFUL LOUISIANA DRUMMER AND
A MEEK UISSISSIPPIAN HOLD
1 GENTLE CONVERSE.
A Mississippi Norther Thawed Oat by
the Genial 'Warmth of a Teche
County Alligator Escapade.
"Alligators are not as plentiful as
thev were some years ago" remarked
a Louisiana drummer . to a party of
congenial spirits last night gathered
around a table at the Driskill. "Why
some years ago there were so many of
them in the swamps and bayous of
southern Louisiana that mothers had
to count theif children every night to
see if any of them had gone too near
the water; and if one was missing they
just took it for granted that the alii
gators had him and they were gener
ally right too. The women did their
washing on the banks of the bayou
and it was no uncommon thing for
an alligator to pull them in as they
leaned over to ( dip up water. The old
story about dogs going up the bayou
and barking to collect all the alligat-
ors and then tearing down stream
and swimming across before the ruse
was discovered is not exaggerated."
"Yes I know there are plenty cf
alligators in Louisiana and Florida
but they ain't all there by a darned
sight" remarked a Missiesippian who
was present. "And this reminds me
of an experience of mine just before
the war. You people here in Texas
don't have all the northers that blow
in this country. I have seen 'em
come up as suddenly in Mississippi as
they ever do here and the temperature
change from summer to winter in less
time than it takes me to tell it. Now
alligators when winter comes take
to their homes and stay there until
warm weather returns. Well it was
just after the war and we had the
mildest winter that was ever known
and the alligators came out earlier
than usual and the banks of the bayou
were lined with 'em and every log
held one or more of them. They
were in a kind of torpid state at first
and were lying around in the sun
getting thawed out when they would
be ready for mischief. Well gentle-
men just about this time there came
the hardest most sudden and by a
long shot the coldest norther that
ever visited Mississippi. People talk
about it to this day. Everybody
stopped work at once and . went in-
doors and staid there. Lots of ( stock
was killed and I had to go
out and drive some young stock
to shelter. When I got down by the
bayou I looked with astonishment on
the blamedest sight I ever witnessed
and I have seen some strange ones
too. The logs and banks were still
covered with alligators but everyone
of 'em were frozen stiff as icicles
everyone of 'em! It was a comical
sight too. Some of 'em had theu
mouths wide open yawning and they
froze just that way. Some had one
eye open and the other shut. That's
the way they were caught. In fact
they were caught in every kind of
ridiculous attitude but they were
caught. I hurried back and got a lot
of darkies armed with axes and lit
into them. We killed alligators until
way into the night and had to stop
from sheer exhaustion. The next day
we got all hands on the plantation
and went to work to skin 'em. When
we got through we had 2314 skins
and about three hogsheads full of
tusks. How many did we skin? Why
All the party were lost in thought
for a few moments as though comput-
ing the number of tusks in a hogs-
head and the Louisianian was the first
"I have never been so hard up as to
have to skin an alligator for his hide
and tallow or rather tusks but while
we are on this subject I will relate a
little incident that occurred just about
the bame time that my friend was
breaking the record in Mississippi for
alligator killing; I was very iond of
hunting and started but one day to
hunt deer in an immense swamp that
was near the plantation. I had been
out for some time when t came across
a young alligator about two f6et long.
Now if my friend found one of this
kind he wouldn't notice him
for his hide wasn't worth
much but I had promised
to ship one to a friend in the North
and it struck me that this one would
just suit him. But I had no game
and was not ready to go back empty
handed so 1 looked around to invent
some way to keep my prize until I
was ready for him and my eyes fell
on the hollow gum tree stump that
was about twelve feet high. It had a
hole at the bottom and had doubtless
been the mansion of generation of
coons. I rolled a log against the hole
and climbing to the top I dropped
youthful saurian in head downward
and resumed my hunt intending to
get him as I went home. Well as
evening came I retraced my steps but
any one who has entered the laby-
rinths of a Southern swamp knows
how much one spot is like another
and I soon found that I could not
find my particular stump again. I
found thousands of them but not the
one I wanted so with regret I had to
return homeward again and leave
my alligator to his fate Years rolled
past and the incident had entirely es
caped my memory. About ten years
afterwards I was again Hunting in tne
same swamp and as luck would have
it in just the same spot. Well hap-
pened to look up and I saw a sight
that made me think l was dreaming.
About two feet above the top of a
twelve-foot stump the tail of en alii
gator was moving backward and for
ward! For an instant I was dumb-
foundered and then like a flash the
whole thing came back to me. This
was the same gum stump with the
same Jog rolled up against the same
bole at the bottom and this was the
identical alligator that I had dropped
in there over ten years ago ! He had
lived there all these years with
nothing to eat except the earth
at the bottom of the stump. But the
earth there in that Teche county is
the richest in the world. Well to
make a long story as short as possiole.
I went back and got some ropes and
trace chains and fixed a kind of trap.
We caught the alligator which was
just fourteed feet long dragged him
home and put him in a tank. I have
him there now but as soon
as the new Zoological park
in Washington is opened I am going
tq send him on there but I am going
to warn the authorities to keep
strict watch on him when any Missis-
sippians are around.X for fear they
might freeeze him for his hide and
tusks. You see I naturally feel at
tached to him have known him so
lnf?i you know and so short too.
How much does any alligator grow in
a year? I'm blamed if I know. What
will you have gentlemen?"

He also furnished the statesman

a magnificent five-story building cov
ering several acres of ground. It has
towers and observatories overlooking
the valley of Ouachita to the south

to the north and east.
It contains 482 guest rooms nearly
all of them 14 by 28 feet and all have
one side to a street or park. Every
room may be properly called a front
one as they all command a magnifi-
cent view of the valley mountain
stream and woodland. The public
