Good Woman Goes to Her Reward

We regret to record the death of Mrs. George W. Aleshire, which occurred very unexpectedly at her home near Stanley, last Saturday, July 14th. She had been in ill-health for some time, though no one though her condition so serious. Her husband at the time of her death was in Winchester, where he was being treated for cancer, and the sad news- which was broken to him as he descended the car steps at Stanley Saturday evening, was indeed a crushing blow to him!.. Mrs. Aleshire was a daughter of the late Abram Painter, a graduate of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind Institute at Staunton, and was a bright, cheerful woman, notwithstanding her great affliction- that of being blind all her life. She leaves a husband, three brothers- Messrs. John W., Jubal and Isaac Painter, and two sisters- Mrs. John Short and Mrs. Henry Petefish, all living near Stanley.

MURDER NEAR MARKSVILLE

A shooting affray occurred near the foot of Tanner's Ridge, south of Marksville, this county, last Saturday evening, in which Mrs. Annie L. Alger, wife of Ashby Alger, was instantly killed, the shooting being done by Philip Alger, a brother of Ashby.

The Algers, together with several friends, had left Marksville early in the evening for their home, several miles distant, some being on horseback, while others were walking. The testimony of Ashby Alger at the inquest held at Marksville on Sunday evening before Coroner W.L. Hudson, of Luray, is that the party had proceeded peaceably on their journey homeward until they reached the foot of Tanner's Ridge, when Philip Alger, who was in advance of the others about ten steps, wheeled around in the road and fired a shot in the direction of those behind, demanding with an oath that they come no further.

Mrs. Alger, anxious to reach her infant at home, was in front of the party, and received the ball in the abdomen, producing almost instant death. The dead woman's husband immediately left the scene of the tragedy for an officer, but soon met several friends and with them returned to where his wife was lying in the road, her head supported by Mrs. John W. Alger, mother of the Alger brothers. When he reached the spot he says Philip Alger was standing over the dead body of his wife, waving his pistol, and remarking "Damn her, let her go."

At this juncture Ashby Alger struck Philip with a rock, and the two men then engaged in a struggle during which they fell almost across the body of the dead woman. In the fall the revolver flew out of Philip's hadn and was seized by Ashby.

An autopsy was held by Drs. Hudson and F.P. Koontz, but the ball was not found. The shooting is said to have been down with a Smith & Wesson revolver, 38 calibre. Deputy Sheriff Kibler arrested Alger and brought him to the Stanley "lockup" where he was kept till Sunday morning, when he was brought to Luray and lodged in jail. The terrible crime is said to have been entirely unprovoked and has greatly incensed the law abiding people of the community.

Alger, when places in the steel cage at the jail expressed great surprise, saying the shooting was simply an accident. We understand that his trial will probably take place at the November term of court. We do not know whether he has as yet employed counsel or not.
