killed one nephew and wounded an
other in a quarrel. He was convicted
of murder hi the second degree and
sentenced to fifteen years' Imprison

mitted suicide. Ever since there has
been a war between Ills relatives and
the people of Sprhigvillo over his body.

moved from the grave one night and
thrown into a pond. The relatives re
covered It and relnterred It. Now thn
White family fear the body will be
taken away again and they have ap
pealed to the court. A decision In the
