NO CLEW YET TO BRYAN MURDERERS.

Noah Shartzer, the Victim, Lived About One Mile Northwest of the City Limits.

He was held Up Just North of the Lake Shore Tracks and Shot Upon Making an Out Cry for Help.

The city of Bryan was the scene of a brutal murder last Saturday night between the hours of ten and eleven o'clock p.m., and the location of the crime was at a point just north of the Lake Shore tracks on Main street.
Noah Shartzer, the victim, had been to town to buy some groceries and was returning home a foot, when at a point where the railroad crosses the street he was met by two men who walked beside him until they were about three hundred feet north of the railroad tracks, here they held him up. It seems that he immediately made an out-cry for help, whereupon one of the men shot him, the bullet entering the left cheek just below the eye, and from all appearances must have taken an upward course and entered the brain, as he never regained consciousness and died about one and a half afterwards.
Mrs. Langel was sitting on her porch just north of the scene, in company with her son, at the time of the shooting. She called to her husband who had just retired and he went at once to Mr. Shartzer's assistance. By this time others were on the scene and the police were notified.
Who done the shooting and where they went is as yet a mystery - and it looks now as if it would remain so, as there is absolutely no clue whatever to begin with.
The authorities it seems wired to Ft. Wayne for blood hounds, and hundreds of people were near the scene of the shooting all day Sunday, anxiously awaiting the arrival of the men and dogs, but for some unknown reason they failed to materialize.
It is the opinion of a great number of Bryanites that the thug made a mistake in their man, as one or two other men were known to have drawn a goodly sums of money from the banks here during the day, and had to pass that way while enroute home.
A number of suspicious characters were taken off the west bound train at Butler, immediately following the shooting, but at the time of going to press all have been turned loose, and the mystery continues to grow deeper.
Mr. Shartzer was sixty years of age at the time of his untimely death, was a quiet, peaceful and law abiding citizen, without an enemy in the world. The funeral was held at his home, Rev. Sellers, officiating and the remains laid away in Brown's cemetery on Tuesday afternoon.

SCHARTZER - Noah T. Schartzer was born July 10th, 1843, and departed this life July 2d, 1904, aged 60 years, 11 months and 22 days. Noah T. Schartzer was born in Wayne county, O., where he lived until eight years of age. When he was brought by his parents, Phillip Schartzer Sr., to Williams county, O., where at or near Bryan they made their home and where he remained the major portion of the rest of his days. There were several exceptions of a few years duration. On August 15th, 1862, at his country's call he enlisted for three years in the war of the rebellion, and remained in the service for nearly three years or until the close of the war. He was mustered out of the service on May 30th, 1865. He was appointed a corporal, and was wounded on the 30th of November, 1864, at the battle of Franklin, Tenn. He served in the 111th Reg. O.V.I., and has a record of a good faithful soldier.
Noah T. Schartzer, and Mary Johnson were united in marriage on December 29th, 1870, to this union were born eight children, five sons and three daughters. Of these all are still living except one daughter, who died in infancy. His wife and mother of his children was called to rest from her labors on April 20th, 1894 about ten years ago. Mr. Schartzer never married again, but kept his family together until the time of his death except as they married and formed other homes of their own, until now the youngest boy is in his seventeenth year, and all able to care for themselves.
Noah T. Schartzer confessed his faith in Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ and only son of the living God, and his Savior and King, and was baptized some thirty years ago, and became a member of the Brethren or German Baptist church, and so remained to the time of his death.
Mr. Schartzer was very highly esteemed and respected by all who knew him; and he was a very kind and affectionate father and friend, and will be greatly missed. Because of his amiable and childlike and Christian virtues, it seems almost beyond human comprehension that he should be called to his death by the hands of robbers and murderers.
But such are some of the awful sins of the human heart. Besides the seven children, there are four sisters and three brothers besides a host of relatives and friends and brethern in the church left to mourn the loss, of a father, brother and friend. The funeral services were held at the Brethern or German Baptist meeting house one mile south west of Bryan, O., and were conducted by brethern, George Selles, C. Gabrill, and Mr. St. John of the same church in the presence of a very large and sympathetic gathering of relatives, neighbors, and friends after which his remains were laid to rest beside that of his wife and companion in Brown's cemetery west of Bryan, O., where they sleep until the last trumpet shall sound, and the dead are raised at the last day, and in their case we are led to hope that it will be triumphant, for a Blessed Immortality, and home in Heaven.
