UNIDENTIFIED BODY IS FOUND IN RIVER

Remains of Apparently Young Man Discovered This Morning Near Cemetery

HOME IN SMITH COUNTY

Letters in Pockets of Clothes On Bank Bore No Names - Cause is Not Known

The body of a young man apparently about 20 years of age, was found floating in the Wichita
river this morning near the cemetery, its appearance indicating that death occured about a week
ago. The remains have not been identified. About 9 o'clock this morning some one found a man's
clothes on the Wichita near the slaughter pens and notified Sheriff Walkup, who went up to
investigate. It was but a short time before that the body was found floating near the shore a
short distance from the bluff upon which the cemetery is situated. Squire Brothers went out and
held an inquest, but it is impossible to determine whether the drowning was accidental or with
suicidal intent. Two letters were found in the pockets of the clothes. One was dated June 17th,
signed by "Mamma" from Oma, Smith county, Texas. "Dear Boy" was the salutation, there being no
envelope. The other was dated June 18, and addressed to "Dear Bob" and signed "Luelia." These
letters contained merely local gossip and there was nothing in either of them to indicate any
trouble. The deceased was about five feet five inches in height, smooth shaven, with straight
black hair. The clothes were neat, but badly worn. The remains were somewhat decomposed when
discovered. In one of the letters was written, "If you go to Oklahoma, be sure to go and see
Aunt Betty. She lives near Walters." There was nothing in the letters or in the clothes to
reveal the young man's identity, but it is not believed that there will be any difficulty in
establishing it after the authorities at Omen have been communicated with. Later - Advices from
Smith count at 3:15 this afternoon indicate the young man's name to be Robert Collier. The
authorities cannot get Omen by phone, but have telegraphed.

resident of this county for twenty years. He was a native of Mississippi and came to Texas when
7 years of age and settled in Lavaca county, where he lived for many years owning a ranch in
that section. In 1883 he moved to this county. A widow, two girls and a boy survive him, also
three brothers and three sisters. Since coming to this city he has become engaged in the
mercantile business and was at the time of his death one of Wichita's foremost business men. To
both his business associates and friends in other walks of life and the news of his death has
been a distinct shock. The funeral took place this afternoon from the Baptist church, the
services being conducted by Rev. W.F. Fry at the church. At Riverside cemetery the remains were
interred with Masonic honors. Mr. Walker was at work in his yard at the time of his death and
the end came without a second's warning. Mrs. Walker had just returned from town and was in the
house at the time when those who saw him fall reached him, he was extinct.

MRS. HOUSTON HODGES VICTIM OF FATAL BURNS

News was received in Wichita Falls Saturday afternoon on the tragic death at Frederick of Mrs.
Houston Hodges, the daughter in law of Judge S.H. Hodges, formerly of this city. Mrs. Hodges
met her death by burning, as a result of a kerosene explosion on her husband's farm, about tem
miles from Frederick. She used coal oil to start a fire in the kitchen stove for dinner and
some live coals ignited it, the explosion followed. Almost enveloped in flames, Mrs. Hodges ran
from the house, her cries attracting the attention of her husband and his cousin, Walter
Palmer, who were at work on a new house near the old one. Houston Hodges jumped from the roof
of the house to go to his wife and the fall and excitement resulted in his fainting before he
could reach her. Mr. Palmer managed to extinguish the flames, tearing Mrs. Hodges clothes from
her, but too late to prevent her being burned horribly. Her death occurred Friday afternoon.
She had been married only six weeks when the accident occurred and this makes the tragedy an
exceptionally regrettable one. She was eighteen years of age. The sympathies of the family's
many friends in this city have been extended to the bereaved ones, all of whom were well known
in this city. Mrs. M.C. White and Piner Avis of this city attended the funeral, which took
place Saturday afternoon.

William R. Brown, a well known young man of this city, who has been in Colorado several weeks

was killed in a wreck. The news was wired by a Pueblo bank to Cashier P.P. Langford of the City
National Bank, who notified the young man's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Brown, who reside on
6th street between Indiana and Ohio. Both father and mother were almost prostrated by the news.
William Brown was about twenty-four years of age, and has lived in this city all of his life.
He was an electrician by trade and was a member of the local union, which, with the Eagle lodge
here, will probably take charge of the remains. "I was expecting him home soon," said Mrs.
Brown. "He told me when he left that he was coming back soon to see the airship at the Fair. I
did not want him to go to Colorado at all." Harry Brow, father of the young man, was almost
prostrated when he learned the sad news, and is reported to be in a serious condition this
afternoon. The intelligence came as a complete shock to both the parents. There are no
particulars of the wreck and it is not known how the young man came to his death. He was well
liked in this city and his untimely end is deeply regretted. The sympathies of the entire
community are extended to his bereaved parents.
