FOUND DEAD

Lawrenceston, Mo., August 27. Editor Fair Play: On the 20th of August, 1887, a strange man giving his name as Hansbrough, came to the residence of Henry Schraum, who lives on the Plank Road to Union Township, this county. He complained of being sick, and was sent to the barn. He represented that he was from Prairie du Rocher, Ill., and that he was the father of four children who resided in Kentucky. Mr. Schraum asked him why he did not go to his children? He said that he was too proud to go to them in his present condition. He remained in the barn until the 25th inst., when he was found dead. He told Mr. Schraum he was sixty eight years old. He was about six feet and had gray hair. At a late hour on the 25th, I was notified of the fact, and immediately summoned a jury, which returned the following verdict. "We, the jury, find that the deceased, Hansbrough, came to this death by some disease unknown to us. We found nothing on his person except a small piece of tobacco, and a package under his head containing two shirts and one coat, and a receipt from the Rolla, Mo. Herald to Mr. G. A. Johnson."

Andrew Thurman Justice of the Peace.
