Raymond Alexander Killed

Raymond Alexander, son of F.G. Alexander, of Haskell was shot and killed on the river last Monday. He had been out on the Plains on a ranch for some time. Last Friday he passed through Haskell and did not stop at his father's but went some twelve miles south to a horse ranch and stayed till Saturday. Saturday he with a young man of that neighborhood went to the river to where a fishing party of friends was camped. Sunday Mr. Alexander mounted his horse with his Winchester saying that he would be gone for some time. His horse came back to camp Monday with a note attached to the saddle from Mr. Alexander saying to take care of his horse but not to look for him. In the evening the body was found in a ravine. His boot had been removed and he had pulled the trigger of the gun with his toe and shot himself through the heart. He was 19 years of age.
