"Murder---Two men by the names of Loyd and Reynolds went to the residence of Thomas Harness, a well-to-do farmer living on Bull Creek in Scott County last Tuesday evening, and after finding Mr. Harness was absent, they killed olf Mrs. Harness, who was sixty-five years old, and a boy nineteen years old, in cold blood.
The villains then put the bodies in the house and burned it to the ground to cover up their crime."
