"Town and County"

A young man named David Williams was found dead in his cabin on the Little Klickitat, out in the Horseshoe Bend section, last Friday afternoon. He was engaged in fruit raising, and was quite generally known hereabouts. Coroner Chapman took charge of the body, and is holding it pending intelligence from Iowa, where he formerly resided. The cause of death is said to have been caused by drinking wood alcohol. Sheriff Henderson unearthed a private "still" in the vicinity of Williams' cabin, which had been in operation for some time. It is alleged that this still belonged to Williams.
