gun was accidently discharged
the bullet striking Mrs. Ro ch
in one side and was tikenout

the hip on the oposite side
Parties who had talked with
Mr. Roach a short time before
the accident say that his mind
was taken up on the su ject of
farming, and he, informed them
that he had rented a farm and
-was going to move out on the
evening until Tuesday when the
investigation proceeded. Af

svvo e out a warrant for Mr,
Roach, the charge being murd- r
in the first degree, and again
the testimony was taken in the
