FATAL STABBING AFFRAY.
Bert Allen Dies From Wounds Inflicted
With Butcher Knife Near Fa
gundus, Forest County.
Bert Allen, aged 30 years, a teamster
at Hunter's Camp, Forest county, was
killed Monday In a stabbing affray wbioh
occurred on the road leading from Fa
gundus to Nellltown. Tbe facts or tbe
esse are quite meagre at Ibis writing, but
It Is said Mrs. George Strain admits tbe
stabblug while protecting herself from
asssult by the slain man.
Shortly after noon Monday Mrs. Strain
came to ber home at Hunter's Camp,
telling of having been attacked bv Allen,
who was riding with her and ber hus
band from Truokeyville, A number of
men went back along tbe road to Trun
keyville and after going about three-
quarters of a mile, found Allen, He bad
struggled sround In tbe snow sod bad at
last fallen over an embankment. He was
tsken to tbe Glenn boarding bouse at
Hunter's Camp and Dr. George Siggins
of Tidioute was summoned. Before be
could reach there, however, the man bad
Allen waa at Tidioute Monday morn
ing and left Ibere on tbe southbound train
during the forenoon, getting off at Trun-
keyvllle. There be met Mr. and Mrs.
Strain, who bad been In tbe village as
sisting in butchering aome bogs. Strain
bad a team and a pair or bobsleds and
Allen Is said to bave asked for a ride to
Hunter's Camp, near where be was em
ployed. It is alleged that the men drank
considerably before leaving Trunkey-
ville, bit when seen passing through Fa-
guudus tbey appeared to be in a good
Tbe next beard of tbe party was when
Mrs. Strain came to tbe boarding house
conducted by J. L. Glenn, Jr., where she
arrived almost in a state or collapse, and
could give no coherent account or what
bad tsken place, except that aba bad a
struggle with Allen, and which ber ap
pearance showed to some extent.
Shortly after that Strain appeared at tbe
camp, asked tbe assistance of some of tbe
men in bringing Allen to the camp, and
the posse went to tbe spot where tbe un
fortunate man lay and brought him lo the
Glenn borne, where be died about 7
o'clock in tbe evening. It was round that
be bad a bad kuife wound in the baok
which bad pierced the left lung, and an
other terrible cut in tbe left leg, tbe knife
having gone clear through the tbigb close
to tbe hip. Allen made a statement to
Mr. Glenn before he died, giving bis ver
sion of Ibe affray.
Sheriff W. H. Hood and Acting Coroner
D. W. Clark went up to Ibe scene early
Tuesday morning to iovestegate the mat
ter, and at 3 o'clock in the afternoon tbey
returned having both Strain and bis wile
in custody. Mr. Glenn, under oath, told
the Coroner that Allen said it was Strain
who stabbed bim.
Strain's story or tbe affair is to tbe
effect tbat on the way borne be and Allen
did considerable walking, and when
some distance from the place where tbe
tragedy occurred, he stepped out ol the
sled and waa walking, bis wife having
bold of tbe lines. He says be heard Allen
"click up tbe horses" and tbey started to
trotting. He thought nothing strange of
I: until the team went nut of sight some
rods ahead. He walked on and alter
crossing tbe bridge of West Hickory
creek and near tbe waterlog trough he
found tbe team tied by tbe side of tbe
road, Thinking tbat bis wife bsd walked
in from there be untied the horses and
drove home, but failed to find bis wile.
He then drove back to where Ibe team
bad been standing and started a search lor
bis wile when be catne across Allen In
tbe woods lo a ravine fully twenty roils
from the road. He claims Allen told bim
tbat Mrs. Strain had inflicted the wounds,
using a butcher knife which he, Strain,
bad taken to Truukeyville that morning
for butchering purposes. He tried to get
him out of tbe woods but could do noth
ing single banded, and then Is wben b
went for help. He can't acoonnt lor bis
wife getting borne without his seeing ber,
but thinks ibe must bave gone out wben
be was searching the woods and found
Sheriff Hood went over the ground and
fouud where Allen had lain and he says
tbat it was all of 20 rods from tbe main
road. Tbe Sberift brought with bim tbe
knife with wblcb the cutting was done.
It Is a large bunting koite carried in a
t-elt and scabbard, and bas an edge al
most as keen as a razor. Strain says
wben they left Truakeyvllle be un
buckled tbe belt and threw tbe outfit in
Both Strain and bis wife waived a bear
ing before Justice ClarK shortly after
their arrival here and were remanded to
jail without bail to await a further hear
ing and trial at next term oi oourt on
a charge of murder.
