and ended his own life. The Mar
shall have had marital difficulties
for years and it is reported that a
week previous Mrs. Marshall had ask

for her husband's arrest as he had
threatened her life with a butcher
knife, but no such terrible tragedy
was anticipated as was enacted.

postoffice at Castle Rock for many
years and last winter lost their store
by fire of unknown origin. Mr. Mar
shall is a brother of Mike Marshall of
Boardman and . also left one boy,
