JONES, farmer at the Oesterlin Home, was shot down because he wanted to make his own yard a safe place of play for his own children. That's the story of J. W. SMITH, Gladison St, the only witness of the shooting. JONES was shot down in his own yard, which is directly across the road from the Oesterlin Home, at 6:15 o'clock Tuesday night. He died in City Hospital at 1:45 o'clock p.m. yesterday. The bullet which caused the his death entered his abdomen, causing internal hemorrhages. During the time he was in the hospital he had brief periods of consciousness. As the end approached JONES talked with his sobbing wife and sister, who remained at his bed side. He evidently realized that he was mortally wounded.The JONES home last night was a picture of desolation. Mrs. JONES was in despair. With Mrs. JONES were a brother and sister of the murdered man, and her five fatherless children. No tears were to be seen in her eyes, but her face bore lines of suffering.The three eldest children couldn't understand why Daddy wasn't coming home.The two youngest mere babes, were too young to realize the tragedy which had entered their humble home. "I don't know what I'm going to do," Mrs. JONES kept repeating. JONES' brother was outspoken regarding the crime. "This is cold-blooded murderand the man who killed my brother should be made to pay," he said. FENT in County Jail, did not appear to be greatly concerned when informed that the man he shot had died. Thus far he has issued no statement. Funeral arrangements will be announced.
