J. J. Guthrie of Kendrick Decoyed to a
Lonely Spot and Shot Down
J. J. Guthrie, leading merchant at
Kendrick, six miles northwest of
Ocala, on the Atlantic Coast Line, was
murdered Saturday night while on his
way home from his store. His body
was robbed and thrown into the
bushes by the railroad track, where it
was found at nine o'clock Sunday
Immediately after the news of his
- death and all the particulars available
'at first had been telephoned to Ocala,
Sheriff Galloway arrested Clarence
Langford, against.whom was at once
found incriminating evidence, which
rapidly increased as the day pro pro-'
' pro-' gressed.
About noon, Earl McRae was ar arrested
rested arrested on suspicion of having at least
a knowledge of the murder.
Mr. Guthrie, who is proprietor of a
general store at Kendrick lives sever several
al several hundred yards from his place of
business. For years it has been his
custom to put the money from his
day's sales in his pocket, take his
books under his arm, shut the store
and go to his home. Five nights in
the week this trip was made before
supper, by daylight in summer and
v soon after dark in winter. Saturday
nights, of course, he was much later,
from ten to twelve o'clock, according
to how long his customers kept com coming
ing coming in. This custom of Mr. Guthrie's
was, of course, well known to his
neighbors. It was also understood
that on these after-dark trips he car carried
ried carried a pistol.
HAD NO CHANCE
The man who shot him Saturday
night gave him no chance to use his
pistol. He was killed with three loads
of buckshot; two in the middle of
his body, the other in his throat. The
idea prevails that he was first shot
from behind, bringing him down, and
then, to make sure, the assassin sent
another load of the heavy shot into his
throat as he lay on the ground. His
pistol, loaded, was found in his
OFF HIS ROUTE
Mr. Guthrie's body was found by
the railroad track some distance from
the line of march he usually took go-

HOW THE BLOODY DEED WAS
The theory is that Langford de decoyed

he was killed, putting up some plaus plausible
ible plausible story for going down the railroad
track instead of the usual road. Mr.
Guthrie was well known to be a kind kind-hearted
hearted kind-hearted man and ready to help any
one. It is believed that after reaching
the place where the murder was com committed,
mitted, committed, they had a short talk, and
then Mr. Guthrie started for home.
Then the first shot was fired, and the
wounded man must have kept his foot footing
ing footing for. a few seconds, for the stains
showed where blood ran down his
leg. Then one or two more shots
were fired, all at close range. The
wound in his neck tore a terrible hole,
blowing the skin and flesh in. Some
of the shot went clear thru, and wad wadding

shots were fired, two into the lower
part of the body, but so close to together

any difference in the entry of the shot.
Dr. Walters found one leaden pellet
so far to one side that he thinks it
could not have been there unless two
shots were fired at the one point.
Clarence Langford, arrested on
suspicion of the murder, is a young
man whosejiome is near Kendrick but
who passes much of his time in Ocala.
He was at Guthrie's store a short time
bffore it was closed Saturday. He
bought some cheese and crackers, and
was heard to tell Mr. Guthrie to
charge them, he had no money. Sun Sunday
day Sunday morning, about two o'clock, he
phoned to Horace Hinton to go to
Temple's restaurant to take him up
town. On the way, he gave Hinton a
roll of bills, about $70, to keep for
him, and those who know him declare
he never had so much money before
in his life. The corner of one of these
bills was torn off in a jagged and
unusual manner. One man told the
officers that he gave Mr. Guthrie that

Saturday night shortly before mid

to go down to Temple's restaurant for

looking -across the tracks toward the

BATTLED' OVER PIPE ORGAN

The current appreciations of James
Watt, inventor of the steam engine,

forth any protest from the Wee Frees,
Yet Watt was responsible for the

round it raged one of the fiercest con controversies

house in High street in 1762, and In
1807 found Its way into St. Andrews
church, Glasgow. On hearing that the
organ was to be played during divine
service, the lord provost of the day
wrote to Dr. Ritchie, minister of the
church, and an enthusiastic fiddler,
"begging to know of him If such was
really the case," and adding that, If
so, he would consider it his duty o

After being used for one Sunday,
the organ was closed by command of
the Presbytery; and then the floods
of controversy were let loose. The
"friends of music" were forcible, If not
very polite, In a series of pamphlets.
Both sides, of course, quoted Scripture
freely ; and In a Presbytery minute the
writer of the pro-organ pamphlets was
convicted of "culpable inaccuracy and
a scandalous violation of the truth."
History, so far as we. know, does not
record what Watt thought of it all.

A crime wave seems to have hit us.
One evening last week, a citizen- of
Dunnellon heard that his wife was
with another man at Floral City, and
set off for that place to break up the
party. He found, so it is said, the two
in a room together, but the other man
war the soonest on the draw, and the
injured husband was badly wounded.
Then there is the murder of Mr. Guth Guthrie
rie Guthrie Saturday night and at the same
time a negro was killed at a turpen turpentine
tine turpentine still several miles from town.
The slayer is in the county jail. Sun Sunday,
day, Sunday, a man with his arm slashed and
bandaged was at the Seaboard eating
room and told of a woman being killed
and her husband being badly hurt at
a place ten miles from Ocala, but no no-bedy
bedy no-bedy is able to verify the story. The
trouble is the wrong people seem to
