Odom, a Texas cotton picker when lie was free, was 28 years old. He killed Charles E. Condc, another cotton picker, who lay asleep in a wogon. It was' a murder for profit. Odom went through the dead man's pockets to reap the rewards of his crime,'and found only 54 cents. He presided at the family reunion in his cell last night by the sufferance of Warden A. J. Barnes. There were 16 relatives present, including (lie condemned man's wife, who came from Corsicana, Tex., for the occasion. His mother and several brothers and sisters also attended. His mother, Mrs. R.

He had his last epileptic fit Wednesday. INVESTIGATORS SEEK CAUSE OF HARWICK BLAST HARWICK, Pa., Jnn. 14.--Spring Street Hill today was a lane · of mourning as State and Federal investigators sought to establish cause o£ the Harwick Coal and Coke Company mine explosion that killed the heads ol 10 families in or near this little mining community. Pour of the families--the Woincrs, Ciesiclskis, Krusx.eks and the Kellers --lived less than n stone's throw from each other in mining cottages on Spring Strcit Hill. Each family lost a man when the'blast ripped through the mine. Tlie families of the six other men killed were scattered in other sections of Harwick or in the nearby settlcmehvs which fed workers to the mine. All were making their plans, for funerals after fust proposals of a mass ceremony were given up because many families had relatives to come from distant points. One theory advanced by investigators listed u strange coincidence as a possible cause of the disaster. It was believed possible that a heavy piece of electrical machinery being moved through the long passage- 300 feet under ground crushed a soft spot in the floor of the passage and dropped into a pocket of natural gas with a shower of friction sparks }hat ignited, the fumes. / Another theory held by the investigators was that "black damp," eternal enemy of the miner, exploded from the spark of a short circuit.
