Jones Killed By Train
  W. H. Jones, of Durant, Okla., was a pleasant caller at this office Saturday. He was a citizen of this county in former years, but moved away thirty-eight years ago and is on his first visit to his old home since that time. He is a splendid conversationalist and it was interesting to hear him tell of the many changes and note marked improvemnets of this country since the last time he went away.
  Since the above was put in type, and just as we go to press, we learn that the body of Mr. Jones was found yesterday morning at the sharp curve on the railroad near Wilcox, and it is supposed that passenger train No. 5 killed him
