LITTLE GIRL IS
KILLED WHEN
STRUCK BY AUTO

     Irene Jordan, eight-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Jordan, was almost instantly killed shortly before noon Thursday when she was struck by an automobile as she was crossing Grand avenue near the Trunk railway. Her body was crushed and she died in a few moments after the accident.
     Dan Daugherty, driver of the automobile which figured in the accident, was placed under arrest after the accident. He will be investigated by the police.
     The accident occurred when Mr. Jordan stopped the wagon in which his family was riding, near a grocery store, to buy some provisions. Mr. Jordan got out of the wagon and started across the street, it is said. The little girl crawled out of the back end of the wagon and started after him. She was about half way across the street when she was struck. Daugherty turned his car sharply in an unsuccessful effort to keep from hitting the child, and ran into a brick store on the corner. His car was slightly damaged.
     Mr. Jordan had been living at Kleburg, but he recently rented a house at Grand Prairie, and was moving his family and his household effects Thursday, when the tragedy occurred.

MAN BRUTALLY SLAIN
NEAR SOUTH DALLAS;
BODY FOUND IN FIELD

_______

Angelo De Patista of Illinois Believed Victim of
Highwaymen; Mystery Enshrouds
Identity of Slayer.

     His head crushed by an assassin of unknown identity, the lifeless body of a white man believed to have been Angelo De Patista, of Detroit, Mich., was found early New Year's Day, lying in a field within one hundred yards of the home of Noah Shrum, a farmer residing at Maylee station on the Waco interurban line, nine miles south of Dallas. Only a small sum of money was found on the body and officers are working on the theory that robbery was the motive for the crime.
     The instrument of death, a large steel cotton beam scale, was found beside the body, covered with blood and hair. This, with other effects, was taken in charge by Sheriff Harston, who, with several deputies and Assistant District Attorney Frank Coe, went to the scene of the killing.

Boy Finds Body.
     The body was found by Lester Shrum, 15 years old, who had gone to the field to look at some cotton picked Wednesday. As the lad neared the wagon, in which the cotton was placed, he saw the lifeless form of De Patista. He returned to his home, where he advised his father, who, in turn, called the sheriff's office.
     How the man reached the place where his body was found, has not been determined. The spot where the man was killed is located about one-quarter of a mile from the main road, and about the same distance from the Katy tracks. To reach the Waco Interurban line, 200 feet away, it would be necessary to cross two fences.

Fought for His Life.
     That he made a fight for his life was shown by the fact that, in his right hand, he held many strands of hair, evidently those of his assailant.
     His head was battered to a pulp, several blows having been struck from the rear before the man fell to the ground. Indications are, that after he fell, a final blow was struck with the scales, which cut the man's head in half.
     Undertaker Weiland, who took charge of the body, stated death had occurred several hours before his arrival upon the scene. The sheriff is of the opinion the man was called to the scene of the murder on some pretense and then killed.

Robbery Probably the Motive.
     "Robbery was no doubt the motive," declared Sheriff Harston. "Only about $2.20 in cash was found in the clothing of the dead man. Part of his watch chain was left in his vest, indicating that the murderer or murderers, in their haste, broke the chain when taking the watch."
     The man was unknown to residents in the vicinity. When he alighted from the car, according to the statement made to Sheriff Harston, he apparently turned to the east and walked in that direction. His body, however, was found 200 feet from the Interurban tracks on the west.
     Where the man resided in Dallas is not known by Sheriff Dan Harston, who has assigned every deputy under his direction to work upon the case.
     The clothing worn by the dead man was of good quality, indicating he was in fairly good circumstance.
     Reports received from several of the deputy sheriffs now working upon the case in the vicinity of Maylee, where the killing took place, are to the effect they are working on good clues and will report to the sheriff later in the day.

INJURED SOLDIER
SEEKS BOND AFTER
GAS PIPE SLAYING

     John W. Ray, student at the Government Vocational Training School for disable soldiers, is seeking his liberty on bond before Judge Robert L. Seay, Monday. Ray is charged with having killed Hugh Henry at Main and St. Paul streets, December 26, by slugging him with a piece of gas pipe.

Dismiss Old Murder Case
Against Man In Asylum
Negro Slayer Also Freed

     Judge Charles A. Pippen disposed of three old murder cases Monday morning.
     The first case was that of J. M. Langston, Grand Prairie farmer, who was indicted nine years ago on charges of murdering his wife, Birtie Langston. It was alleged that Langston struck his wife on the head with a club as she was crossing a foot bridge near Grand Prairie and left her to drown in shallow water. The name of former County Attorney R. M. Clark was signed to the indictment.
     Langston, after being arrested, went violently insane while confined in the county jail. He was sent to Terrell. Judge Pippen dismissed the case.
     The case of Will Robinson, negro, charged with murder of his mother-in-law was dismissed by Judge Pippen. Robinson, on March 11, 1917, is alleged to have killed Henrietta Strothers, his wife's mother at her home on Trinidad street. He also shot and wounded his wife at that time.
     The negro has previously been convicted on charges of aggravated assault for shooting his wife. The wounded woman was the only witness for the state in regard to the shooting of Henrietta Strothers. As the defendant's wife, her testimony was not admissible. Hence, the dismissal.
     Louis Walker, negro, charged with stabbing Ed Jones, another negro, to death, July 6, 1918, did not appear when his case was called. His bond of $1,500 was forfeited and his arrest was ordered by Judge Pippen. Walker is in Kansas City.
