On Thursday morning of last week, Joseph Francis, a Frenchman, living on the Jones farm, about three miles south of Clement, on the Carlyle and Centralia road, was found in his well, drowned. Mr. Francis was aged about 45 or 50 years. There was no coroner's inquest on the body, and a good many think the circumstances look suspicious, while others are firmly of the opinion that the old man committed suicide.
