MURDERED IN HIS BUGGY. George S. Harrison Mysteriously Asiastlaated While on Hit Way Home. George S. Harrison, the well known farmer and insurance man, who lived just one mile north of Upper Alton, was murdered last evening while on bis way home from Upper Alton. His horse walked into the yard at 6 o'clock last night with the dead body lying in the bottom of the buggy with the face tamed downward, where he bad fall en, a great gaping hole in the corner of his month and bis face and beard clotted with blood. The body was still warm with the heat of the blood but life was extinct. When the buggy and horse came into the yard the family, expecting the father's 1 return, went out to meet him. In the gath - erlng dusk he could not be seen in the buggy, and his family thinking he had possibly met with an accident inves tlgated closely and were shocked to find the body of the father worm but dead, .where it had sunk down after the terrible tragedy. The news spread over the country rapidly and in a short time there was a) horrified crowd gathered at the home of the Harrisons. Coroner Bailey was sent for to hold an inquest and the facts in the cise leading up to the murder were gradually brought out. Mr. Harrison beside being a farmer is agent for a Farmers' Insurance Oo. sod had gone out yesterday to Be : thalto to collect some money that was due him. Oa his return he stopped at Hastings meat market at 4 o'clock, and at five o'clock he stopped at the store of Theo. Sims on the northern edge of the village where he bought a newspaper. That was the loat seen ol him alive. His hat was f iund lying ou the ground at the bridge over the O. & A. cut-off track at the tap of the hill. Down the hill at the turn of the road is another smpll bridge over a little branch and here two hunters in a buggy parsed Mr. Harrison's rig on the road. The horse was running and no one could be seen in the buggy. The hunters turned out of the way to let the horse go by and then noticed the prostrate body of Mr. Harrison. The murder was committed at the top of the hill, without any doubt, and the horse ran away down the hill with the dead body of the master in the baggy. There are many theories as to the manner in which he met his death. One is that he was murdered by highwaymen for bis money and valuables and that the horse being frightened by the shot ran away before the highwayman could complete his work. Another theory is that he was foully murdered out of pure revenge for some spite. All the money and his watch were still on the person of Mr. Harrison. A very plausible th eory Is that the deed was committed by some one with whom the victim was acquainted. It was his custom to wrap the reins about the whip while talking to acquaintances on the rood. Chief of Police Kuhn thinks he met this murderous acquaintance and, stopping to talk, the conversation ended in.a dispute and the killing. The revolver waa held close to his face, ao close that the powder entered the wound with the bullet and did not discolor the flesh greatly. Mr. Harrison was a peaceable man and never carried a revolver so that the murder waa the deed of a dastardly coward who did not hesitate to shoot a defenseless mau, Mr. Harrison was born in Missouri August 8th, 1836. He came to Madison county when twelve years of age, and In 1872 waa married to MUa Elleu Kennedy, daughter of Robt. Kennedy, of Woodriver township. He leaves his wife and four children, Misses Lucy, Julia, Edna and Zepba Harrison. The funeral will be Sunda; at 2 p. m, from the home. Coroner Bailey suggested that the two bloodhounds at Bdwardsvllle be sent for and put upon the trail of tbe murderer. The bloodhounds were seat for and Oalef of Police Kuhn went to work on tbe track. Up to midnight the .trail bad been unsuccessful and tbe pursuit was given up, Chief of Police Kubn with the blood hounds resumed the attempt this morning to trail the murderer but gave up tbe chase at 10 o'clock, He sent the dogs book aa uaeleae. There is not now a single clue to tbe Identity of the aasaaain. PAUL BRO5. Prescription Pharmacy. Pure Drags and Medicines, Pilot, Glass add Oil, Sponges, Cbamios, Toilet Articles. ?

The cold-blooded and brutal murder of George 8. Harrison northeast of Upper Alton last night, calls public attention to the lawless deeds perpetrated in that vicinity in the past few weeks, i Bold and defiant burglaries, holdups and other forms of robbery have been capped by the murder of an inoffensive and highly respected citizen of advanced years. What should be done to abate this ware of crime? The constituted authorities are powerless to prevent the lawless acts. In speaking of the matter a well- known business man of this city, suggests that an organization of Alton and Upper Alton residents be formed, who shall pay into a common fund, one dollar each, which shall go towards a reward of fioo to any person who will capture a burglar, highway robber or murderer, with the evidence to convict him, or if the criminal is killed In the act of his crime the $100 be given to the person putting an end to the criminal. There is no doubt need for some such organization, and while this city has been measurably free from similar raids perpetrated in Upper Alton and St. Louis, its citizens could very well afford to enter the organization to rid this section of the rascals who are now perpetrating the deeds of robbery and murder, as the scene of their acts may soon be transferred to Alton. Notice of Removal On and after Nov. 14 my office will be in the "Laura" (Postoflloe) building, where I hope to see my old patrons and as many new ones as may desire my services. O. A.
