MARY EUBANKS' MURDER
Her Aged Father Tells How His Son Beat His Sister to Death
Mitchell, Ind., Nov. 15–Mortimer Eubanks, the aged father of Miss Mary Eubanks, who was arrested as an accomplice with his son, "Bee" Eubanks, as the murderer of his sister, has made a confession to Westley Walker, the town marshal.
He says the murder occurred about midnight Sunday night. Bee Eubanks was abusing his sister while he, the father, tried to prevent him, but he could not as he was old and feeble. Bee then took up a club and beat his sister in spite of his entreaties. He ran into the street and called for help, but no one came. He was unable to help his daughter.

A BROTHER CLUBS HIS SISTER TO DEATH—A FATHER'S CONFESSION
Mitchell, Ind., Nov. 15–Old man Eubanks has confessed his son Bee did the killing of his sister. Old man Eubanks says his daughter and Bee quarreled and the latter clubbed his sister to death. But the fact that the old man went to bed and left the daughter on the floor without ascertaining the extent of her injuries will probably convict both father and son.
