ANOTHER FINE RAIN VESTER-
Clean shaven, dressed in a new suit
of dark clothes, with new hat and new . ^
shoes, white striped shirt, neat tie and • •
white collar, Laney Reed did not pre-
sent the appearance of a "killer" as
he sat in the court room this after-
noon and listened to the testimony of
witnesses who told of the killing of
W. W. Bumgarner at the Champeau
sale on Nov. 23rd. Reed is about 28
or 30 years of age, medius sized, dark
complected, with dark gray eyes and
rather sharp fatures, and has the ap

timony with no apparent feeling, and
retained his stoicism to the last

of what happened there. John said he
did not know, and the matter was
Witnesses examined were Geo. D.
Graves, Ben Moren, Mose Hewitt,
Claude Scott, Scott Price, J. M. Hens-
ley, Ben Craig, J. F. Johnson, W. H.
Newblock, John Bumgarner and J. M.
Glenn. Nothing that was new was
brought out by their testimony, which
was to the effect that Reed had shot
Bumgarner six or eight times and
killed him, shooting him four or five
