KANSAS TRAGEDY - A Former Citizen of Texas Carried Home to a Pretty Wife to Die.

Southern Afternoon Press.
PEARSALL, Texas, June 6.-This community was lately startled with the news of the killing of Ed Hageman at Logan, Kan., last week. A man named Alrich had mortgaged his horses for a certain amount to a man named Ackers. The mortgage fell due and was renewed and, in course of time, fell due again. Then, Alrich refused to do anything, would neither renew the note, nor pay the money, nor give up the horses. Constable Hageman was then sent to get the horses, but when he started to take them, Alrich shot him in cold blood. Hageman was then carried to his wife and five children, and only lived a few hours. Hageman was married and lived in Frio county for years. His wife was Miss Kate Hennings, of old Frio Town.
