'The Hill tragedy near .Ardenwald
Station has aroused the residents of
the county, and all reports of men
acting strangely are soon magnified
many times. Tbe people are wrought
up over the tragedy and their Imagin
ations are getting tbe best of them.
When It was first reported that a
wild man' had been aeen near the
Barclay school he waa described aa
wearing a beard and carrying a rope
which be waved frantically at all who
came near. We traced tbla report
down and found that auch a man had
been seen In that vicinity, but he
proved to be a fanner who waa look'
lng for some aheap that bad gone
astray. He bad tbe beard and carried
the rope, but be never waved the
rope at anyone. ,

the persons who say they aaw tbe sec
