FATE OF AN INFIDEL WIFE
10 II 1
Sheriff Lipscomb of Wsller County
Looking For the Murderer of
Retributive justice overtook
an infidel wife at Hermann
Switch on the Waller county side
of the Brazos river during the
early hours of Thursday morning.
Mary Muckleroy, while asleep by
the side of her husband, received
a bullet in the left breast, which
passed entirely through the body
and was found afterward beneath
her dead body. The room in
which the woman was killed has
two doors and one window on the
north side. All of these were
open. The assassin evidently
came in through one of the open
doors as indicated by tracks.
Indications are that the shoot-
ing was the culmination of a plot
between the woman and her
paramour to get rid of her hus-
band, and the bullet that killed
her was evidently intended for
him. The woman was lying on
the left side of the bed facing her
husband. Three of the hus-
band's fingers on the right hand
were partially shot away by the
Hugh Muckleroy, -the hus
band, told Sheriff Lipscomb that
on retiring he left his pistol on a
marble topped table near the bed.
When awakened by the discharge
of the pistol, which carried away
a portion of his hand, as above
related, he reached at once for
the pistol. It bad bees moved,
and he afterwards found it on a
small shelf several feet from the
table where he had left it. His
bloody fingers had left marks on
the table and shelf where he
searched for the weapon. Muck-
leroy said he ran to a window
and thought he saw a man dis-
appear in the oockleburs between
the house and the fence. An ex-
amination showed where the burs
had been mashed down by some
one running through them and
an ash pile in the yard showed
the imprint of a heel less shoe.
A little girl sleeping in an ad-
joining room says the discharge
of the pistol woke her up, and
■he heard the dying woman say,
"Cousin Willie, what did you do
that for?" Sheriff Lipscomb is
now engaged in trying to find
The man who is believed to
have done the killing was seen
near the bouse as late as 1
o'clock. On the afternoon before
he was noticed talking to the
woman, and in the evening when
the husband came home from the
field where he had been plowing,
the man was still there. He left

As soon as the tragedy occur-
red a negro mounted a horse and
went to Hempstead to notify
Sheriff Lipscomb. That offioial
had just returned from atrip
into another part of the bottom
where he had been in pursuit of
a horse thief. He reached the
scene of the tragedy about an
hour after the killing occurred.
Sheriff Lipscomb came to
Brenham on the noon train and
enlisted the aid of the Washing-
ton county officials in an effort to
catch the guilty party, of whose
identity he has no doubt.
There is more catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together,
and antil the last few years was supposed to
be incurable. For a great many years doc-
tors pronounced it a local disease, and pre-
scribed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment, pro-
nounced it incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and
therefore requires constitutional treatment
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It u
taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a
teaspoonful. It acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces of the system. They
offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails
to cure. Bend for circulars and testimonials

Died at Chappell Kill.
Mrs. C. W. Askew, wife of Mr.
C. W. Askew of Houston, died at
the residence of her son near
Chappell Hill on the 13th instant
and was buried in the oemetery
at the latter place. Mrs. Askew
was in her seventy-first year.
Born and reared in Edgefield,
South Carolina, she spent the
early pert of her life In Georgia,
coming to Texas in 1876. She
was first married to Mr. Fife, and
her second husband was Mr.
Charles W. Askew. She leaves
two children, Mr. Stephen Fife,
a planter resident in Washington
oounty, and Mrs, R. C. Gray of
Mrs. Askew was a woman of
remarkable strength of character,
a model christian and ministering
servant among her kind, of sweet
disposition and kindly nature and
loved by all who knew her. This
world must be and is better that
such women have lived in it.
Denison Is to have a knitting
mill. It will represent an invest
ment of only $30,000 and will
give employment to fifty persons.
Why can't Brenham have a
knitting mill? It would be a
paying investment for the
amount of capital invested. We
oould all wear socks then.
A LAWN PARTY.
At the Lusk Homestead in Honor of Visit-
ing Young Ladies.
On Thursday evening there
The man was seen with a Colt's
pistol of 44-calibre the day before
the tragedy. It was also noticed
that he wore lace shoes with the
heels knocked off.

The grounds at the Lusk resi-
dence are carefully looked after
by the genius of the house and
the terraced lawn is the prettiest
in the city. It was especially in
viting on this occasion and bril
liantly illuminated with Chinese
lanterns, imported before the
massacre of the legations. In
the parlors there was a pro
gressive euchre contest for those
who find amusement in the "cut,
shuffle and deal." Out on the
verandas and on the spacious
lawn "hearts" were mostly
played. Out of this may come
"hearts that beat as one." It is
