      Wednesday, January 6, 1926: An echo of the suicide of the late John BISHER, a farmer of near Loyal on January 21, 1925, was sounded in the Fulton circuit court Wednesday in a claim filed against the estate of the deceased by Oscar MONESMITH for $85. Bisher, after a day in the Fulton circuit court in which much damaging evidence was introduced against him in a damage suit for malicious prosecution filed by Elmer MONESMITH, went home and shot himself, leaving a note in which he stated that lies told by neighbors on the witness stand was the cause of the rash act. As an item in this claim, Mr. Monesmith included a charge of $12 for driving Bisher in his car while he was procuring witnesses to testify in his behalf. Two other claims were also filed against Bisher estate Wednesday by neighbors who cared for the dead man's stock and guarded the premises for 21 days following his death. These claimes were filed by Dewey CRABILL, who seeks a judgment for $52.50 and Ora WALES one for $31.50
