A DEATH CAUSED TALK.
Considerable Incitement at Liberty
Over a Nad Death. Last Week.
There is considerable excitement
in Liberty over the death of a young
woman there last Wednesday. She
was taken sick about the first of the
week and a young physician was
called in. He prescribed for her.
but instead of improving it is said
ehe grew worse. Becoming alarm
ed, her father sent for Dr. Foster,
a well-known physician formerly of
Alamance county, who on making
a diagnosis of the case, said she
was in a delicate condition and that
from the nature of things an opera
tion must be performed as the only
means of saving her life and that
even this, at this late day, was haz
ardous. The operation was . per
formed, but the young woman died
and was buried Thursday.
1 he other part of the story is that
when the old physician was called
in the young doctor vanished and
has not been seen, though it is said
search has been made for him. The
father of this young physician, hear
ing of these reports that his son had
ron away, came forward and said he
had not gone ami was not going to
?n and that he could be had at any
ti ne he was wanted by the pr p r
The inference is that he is being
connected with the young woman's
condition, but there is nothing bu r
rumor yet and for this reason no
names are given. If theie is any
thing in the story it will all come
out, but us no legal action has yet
been taken the above is sufficient.
The young lady in the case w; 8
Miss Gertnule Euliss. one of the
most popular young ladies iu Liber
ty and a daughter of Mr. . Al.-x
Euliss. Dr. De Lucy Foust, a
young physician against whom there
has not been heretofore any cliarg?
against his professional nr private
life, is the physician who turned
the case over to Dr. Foster uud then
The Euliss family claim that
Foust who had beeu visiting Miss
Euliss and had been with her on
several occasions, driving and at!
church etc., was the author of her
ruin, while some others claim he
was not responsible for her condi
tion. The tragic death is c'eplored by
the good people of Liberty. The
Euliss family say that Dr. Foster
gave them the first information they
had of the unfortunate condition of
the young lady.
Damaging rumors are afloat as to
the perpetration of the crime.
While it is an unpleasant matter
yet there is no doubt that there
should be a judicial investigation.
