News reachyi the city this morn
ing of the death cf Will Honeycutt,
a farmer in No. 9 township, froji a
wound in the head, received Suc
diij. Hood, a cung man
who waa employed by Honeycatt,
and George Heathcock, statd
charged with h'u death.
The particulars of the hffiir, as
r:tur ob could be learned, are as
Sunday morning the three men
proposed to go on a visit to Mort
Prtro, who lived about a mile dis
tant from Huiieycutt'd house. They
:ot into the wagon, but before
leaving, some words passed between
Hood and Honeycutt about a bottle
of whiskey, and Mrs. Honeycutt says
Hood threatened to kill her husband.
It seem: that all three of the men
were drinking. They did not come
to blows, however, before driying
off, but when the party reached
Fetra's house Honeycutt was taken
from the wagon in a semi-uncons
scioua condition, bleeding profusely
from a deep wound in the head,
evidently inflicted by some sharp in
strument. The wounded man was
put to bed, where he lay from Sun
day evcr.:ng till late yesterday with
out medical attention. When it was
seen that his condition was really
critical, Dr. Charles Barnhardt, of
Mt. Pleasant, was summoned, and.
together with Dr. Jerome, frcm
GBorgeville, did what they could
for the man, but despite their ef
forts, he died at 7 o'clock last night.
Warrants were at once sworn cut
against Hood and Heathcock, charg
ing them with the deed. The men
deny the charge, and 3?ert that
Honeycutt fell from the wagon and
ruck his heal on a rock".
No attempt at escape was made,
vh men remaining with Honey-
".:tt till he died. There were no
witnesses to the affair, and whether
oath resulted from a fall from the
v:gon, as claimed b Hood and
.luliccck, or whether he was as-
- :ivd by one of the men, as
-..ivg.'d by Mrs. Honeycutt, remiins
