A SUSPICIOUS DEATH.
kemains of a Child Disinterred at Stroud
—Strangers Come to Chandler.
Last week two women, one old and blind,
giving her name as Conrey, the other about
20 or 22 years old, calling herself Lydia
Harlau, accompanied by a child a little over
one year old, registered at Brown's hotel in
At supper the child was apparently in
good health, playing around on the floor and
talking its infant prattle. About 9 o'clock
the women sent for a pitcher of water for
their room. Mrs. Brown responded and
found the door locked. When it was open-
ed the air in the room was heavy with the
odor of drugs, and three bottles of liquids
sat on the table in one corner of the room
The babe was lying on the bed, seeming-
ly suffering. While Mrs. Brown looked at
it, it went into convulsions. The younger
woman picked it up and laid it on the floor.
It continued to grow worse, and Mrs.
Brown picked it up to carry it out of the
room, but it died in a few moments,
No physician was summoned and early
on the following morning the child was
buried. The blind woman did not attend
the burial, and the younger woman is said
to have wept but little. Returning to the
hotel, she sat with her wraps on waiting for
a train west bound. The old woman ex-
pressed herself as glad the child was dead.
They left, saying they were going to
Oklahoma City, but got off the train at
Chandler, where they stayed at the Barker
house several days, leaving for no one
knows where. They talked freely of the
dead child and did not make any 'attempt at
concealment or of unnecessary comment on
The sheriff, coroner, county physician
and county attorney went to Stroud Wednes-
day evening and disinterred the body of the
child for post mortem examination.. It was
• a beautiful child and in no wise resembled
either of the women. The lips and tongue
were white and swollen, with deep indenta-
tions. No evidence of poisoning was dis-
covered and the remains were reinterred.
Farther developments may result in the
women being held for murder.
. C. Beaty, residing eighteen miles north-
west of Chandler, was in town Friday and
remained over night. He was here on bus-
iness with the county school superintendent
in regard to the appointment of a director
to fill a vaeancy in his district.

An Exciting; Ride.
Miss Lola Waychoff, who is a guest at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Feuquay, i
had a narrow escape from serious injury
Saturday evening. She had met her sister, J
Mrs. Moffett and two children, of Sac and !
Fox Agency, at the train and they rode to j
the Feuquay home in the 'bus. Mrs.
Moffet and children had alighted and Miss
Waychoff was starting to get out when the
'bus door slammed shut, frightening the
team. The driver was at the back of the
'bus and the horses started on a lively run.
Miss Waychoff was helpless inside as the
door had fastened.. The heavy vehicle
swung from side to side, threatening every
moment to overturn. When the horses j
turned onto Manvel avenue, at Ninth
street, they collided with Mr. Feuquay's |
delivery wagon, tearing off a hind wheel. J
This checked them and before they got
another start wagons had pulled in ahead of I
them so they could not go forward, and
Miss Waychoff was safely rescued from her j
New York Store Opened.
The,formal opening of the new New !
York store, under the management of
Christal, Bowman & Co., took place Satur-
day. It was an event for buyers and the
store was crowded all day. "The sales were
greater than the proprietors had expected
and they are well satisfied with the reception
given them. The stock is entirely new and
the store handsomely arranged.
Harry Gilstrap is back flom Washington,
where he secured a reopening of his case
with the postal department, and will prob-
ably soon be in charge of the Chandler
postoffice. If this case was left to a jury of
all the press gang Harry would be exoner-
ated in just three seconds—Asher Altruist.
Fifty Cents Better.
H. J. Stevens was in Chandler Wednes-
day, having driven over from Clifton with "
the last of his cotton crop. He says „he j
gets fifty cents more on the 100 pounds in
Chandler than in Shawnee.
A. A. Beasler, one*of the substantial
German farmers of the Kickapoo, was a
Chandler visitor Monday. Mr. Beasler is
making final proof on as tine a quarter set?- i
tion as there is in that township, and is do-
ing much toward developing the country. ;
He said the Santa Fe had a surveying corps
on his farm when he left home and it was
his supposition the road would cross his
place, but if it does no scheming contractors
will steal the right-of-way across his land.
A. Jacobs, of the Star store, returned
Monday night from his purchasing trip
through the eastern markets. His new
spring goods are beginning to arrive and the
selection is one of the finest ever brought to
Chandler. It is such stocks as the Chandler
merchants bring that makes this city the
trading'center not alone of Lincoln county,
but of the entire e'astern part of Okiahoma. ''
Amos Brandenberger has bought lot 9 in
block 1, East .Park, Chandler, and has be-
gun the erection of a handsome $800 cot-
tage. The foundation walls are now com-
pleted and the frame work started.
A substantial addition is being made to
the Owens cotton mill. When completed it
will add greatly to the output of the plant.
Still farther improvements.are contemplated.
D. F. Holmes went to Oklahoma City
Saturday, accompanying Mrs. Holmes that
far on her way to Guthrie, where she will
visit her mother a week.
