TO KIS MURDER THREE NE-
GROES ARE UNDER ARREST
REDDUS WAS WEALTHY.
Muskogee Okla. June 2. A worn
- ans' voice lured William Reddus i
wealthy negro of Tullahassee upon
the mission that led to his death
last Sunday morning is the theory
that Bay's Detective agency has been
forking upon ever Bince it was learn
ed that a woman called Reddus the
night before his body was struck by
a train on the Missouri Oklahoma &
Oulf railroad at West Okmulgee ave
nue. The clew was the beginnin
of an Investigation that resulted In
the arrest early this morning of
Mrs. Lonaz Mackey the woman who
is said to haive called Reddus and
of "Old man" Joseph Smith and Paul
Michael two companions.
The trio were arrested at the home
of the Mackey woman just off the
end of the Alta Vista car line by
Robert H. Selby a deputy sheriff
and V. R. Rays J. F. Bays and J
M. McCormack of the Bays' Detect
ive ngency. The detectives had been
watching the woman's home for th
last three nights and made the ar
rest this morning believing that
the woman was preparing to leave
the city. The three negroes offered
no resistance to the officers who
took them by surprise. They refused
to make any statements concerning
the charge upon which they were ar-
rested. Reddus who is said to have been
worth nearly a quarter of a million
was a prominent merchant in Tulla-
hassee. His body was crushed by a
train last Sunday morning. A coro-
ner's jury at an Inquest Monday de-
cided that Reddus had been killed
and his body placed on the railroad
track after the murder.
Two negroes G. S. Parker and
Joe Meyers arrested last week for
Investigation were released yester-
day on motion of the county attor-

asked I.efter walking Impatiently up
and down the room. "It's getting late
and I have a pressing engagement to-
night." "In Just a few minutes" nnswered
Mrs. Randall. "Rut do you know I
was thinking today that you r.re al-
ways having 'pressing engagements.'
It Is a rare occasion for you to pass
an evening at home with the family."
"By George I believe you're right

"That's a go. Let me see I have a

"Can't you people help me out?"
asked the worried young man.
Both maintained a discreet silence.

"How are you. old sport" said Jep-

moved with extreme care. When he

"I don't feel very well" he returned
wearily. "I don't seem to get much

low." Simcoe held up his thin hands. "No

cal si'ii-nee I've already tried It. I've
changed medicines once in every
three or four days for a year or bo; I
try a new preparation evory time I
turn around. 1 think I get worse all
"Why don't you hunt up a new doc-
tor?'' queried Jepson with a sudden
"Honors!" snorted Simcoe for the
moment aroused from his lethargy.
"Doctors! I've had more doctors than
there are men In tho Mexican army.
I've had doctors that give medicine
in large doses and doctors that give
medicine in small doses; I've had doc-
tors that rub and maltreat their pa-
tients until most of them either die
or got well in self defense I've had
doctors that give various sorts of
treatment and some that don't seera
to give any at all. I've had 'em old
and young male and female white

sorts and condltoins of doctors but
none of them Is able to make me feel
as I ought to feel."
"F.ver try the baths?" ventured Jep-
son. '"All of them." said Simcoe. "Sul-
phur salt mud steam hot and cold
water hops I've been the whole
route. And every new kind of bath
does me up worse than the one before.
I must be In awful shape and I don't
know for the life of me what I'm to do
with myself now."
"I'll tell you old man" conseled
Jepson after deliberation "if I were
In your shoes 1 wouldn't do anything.
Maybe no treatment at all Is what you
need until you get rested up again.

A brigade must consist of not less
