The body of Grover C Liller, 22 years old, who was shot to death at Wartburg, Tenn, was brought to the home of his mother at McCoole last night. Liller, it is stated, appeared in Wartburg and acted strangely. No one seemed to know him, where he came from or what he wanted. He went to the house of a farmer. Two men were the only occupants. They heard a noise and went out with a shot gun. Liller was seen scratching along the side of the house. When he was asked what he wanted, according to the story given by the men, he placed his hands on his hips as though he would shoot. One of the men then shot him dead. It was found that Liller was entirely unarmed and he did not have even a pocketknife. He was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose, the Ancient Order Knights of the Mystic Chain and the Junior Order United American Mechanics. At one time he was employed in the Baltimore and Ohio yards at Keyser, W Va.

ATTEMPTS SUICIDE

Morgantown, W Va

Mrs Maude Lavelle-Welch, aged 20 years, who for the past year made her home in this city, attempted suicide by asphyxiation at her apartments in the E P Millan residence on Front street yesterday afternoon about 3 o’clock. The young woman had closed all the windows and doors of her room, stuffed the cracks with paper and turned on the gas in the light and stove. Despondency was the cause of the girls act. She was discovered in a semi-conscious condition by Miss Olla Dille, who also resides at the Millan residence. A physician was hurriedly summoned and revived the girl. The following note was found on the table in her room:

“Dear Sister:--It’s too late now. I thank the girls for what they’ve done for me. Write my Uncle Jake. He will come to see to everything—

“Maude”

As soon as she was revived, her girl companions attempted to revive her spirits by joshing with her about the affair. The Welch girl became angry at this and suddenly sprang from the bed where she was lying and ran into the bathroom, bolting the door behind her. Fearing another attempt on her own life, friends of the woman effected an entrance to the bathroom from a nearby porch roof and she was found lying prostrate over the gas stove with her face close to the burner so that she could inhale the fumes as quickly as possible. She had not inhaled enough of the gas, however, to cause any sickness. The girl’s home, it seems, is near Henry, W Va, and she left there several years ago. About twelve months ago she was married to a man named Welch, who resides at Cumberland, and who, it is said, belongs to a prominent family there. She lived with her husband for only a short time and they separated. For the past year the girl has made her home here with Mrs Harry McFadden, who has apartments at the Millan residence. She has insisted on discarding the name of Welch and is known to many people in this city as Maude Levelle. For several months after her arrival here she worked at one of the local glass factories, but of the late has been disinclined to work, according to the statements of her acquaintances. On Saturday, January 17th, the Lavelle girl, accompanied by Nina Miller, went to Fairmont with two young men from this city. During the escapade the girls were apprehended by the Fairmont police and placed in jail there. It is said that the Lavelle girl was forced to pawn her clothing in order to obtain her release. She returned to this city last Sunday morning and at that time both Mrs McFadden and Mrs Millan told the girl that they did not care for her to room there any longer and requested her to get out at once. The Welch woman seemed reluctant to go, but finally stated yesterday that she would leave on the noon train. When she failed to depart, Mrs McFadden and Miss Dille appeared before Squire Barker and reported the facts of the case. It was during their absence from the residence that the girl attempted suicide. Mrs McFadden telegraphed relatives of the girl at Henry, W Va, and they are expected here today to take charge of the incorrigible. The girl was resting easy last night, apparently none the worse for her attempt at death. Friends remained with her last night to prevent any repetition of the suicide attempts.

RESOLUTION

At the fourth quarterly conference held at the First M E Church, Davis street, last Saturday night, the following resolution was passed by the conference.

Keyser, W Va

Jan 24, 1914

Resolved, that we, the members of the Quarterly conference, Keyser Charge, Frederick District, Baltimore Conference, commend the faithful work of our devoted pastor, Dr F H Havenner during the past year and earnestly desire his return to labor among us for another year; to this end, we respectfully petition the District Superintendent and presiding Bishop of the annual Conference for his return to us for another year. We believe a change in our pastor at this time would be detrimental to both pastor and our Church. Dr Havenner is closing up his seventh year at this place, and in passing above resolution the board is satisfied  they are carrying out the wishes of the whole congregation.
