Bloomington World (Monroe County, Indiana), April 12, 1892, p.18. NOTE: The item below was abbreviated from the original as shown by the ellipsis. Cyrus Brown, who was convicted of murder in the first degree in the Bartholomew circuit court for the killing of his wife, Amanda, and sentenced to be hanged April 20, was given another chance for his life by the Supreme Court yesterday. Judge Coffey wrote the opinion which reverses the decision of the lower court and directs the granting of a new trial. This action is taken because of the fact that during Brown's trial one of the jurors got drunk overnight and, though he was in the jury box the next morning apparently none the worse for his celebration, the Supreme Court believes that his lapse from sobriety invalidates the jury's action and rendered imperative the granting of a new trial.
Indianapolis (IN) News, April 2, 1908, p. 13. Columbus, Ind., April 2-Martin Vanest, a relative of William T. Vanest of whitecapping fame, came near losing his life on the road between here and Brown County yesterday afternoon. Vanest was driving a team that was hitched to a wagon loaded with baled hay. While crossing a stream, one of the wagon wheels gave way and Vanest was thrown from the top of the load. He was so badly injured that he lay in the water where he had fallen for about 30 minutes. Fortunately, the stream was small and low and he managed to keep his head above the water. The chilling water soon began to benumb the injured man and by making a painful effort, he crawled to the bank where he lay in his wet clothing until some men came along and helped him to the house of a neighbor. His fall dislocated his left shoulder, injured his back and he is bruised and otherwise hurt.
