household goods to John McNamara for some money. Last week he sent his
wife and family to Illinois, and sold his goods to a second-hand goods
dealer. The warrant followed, and Melzer was soon wanted badly by the
constable. The most diligent search failed to find him, and this
morning it was learned that he had left the city. Melzer was a barber,
and has lived in Denison for fifteen years.

died next day, and during lucid intervals called the name of Milantree,
which furnished the clew which led to his arrest. To-day he was
awarded twenty-five years in the penitentiary on a verdict of murder in the
