Murder and Suicide
For various reasons the Herald has deferred the publication of the recent tragedy at McHenry until now. The following condensed account appeared in the Harvard Herald, and we present it to our readers unchanged.

Nye Colby, a farm hand in the employ of his cousin, Newell Colby, shot and instantly killed the latter's wife Thursday evening. The shooting took place on the Colby farm, a half mile west of McHenry, and marked a day of quarreling on the part of Nye, who was under the influence of liquor when he committed the awful deed.

Newell Colby hired his cousin. Nye, to carry on the farm during the time he is serving a sentence of seven months for assaulting Dr. Beebe, a McHenry physician, whom he maintained insulted his wife, and when the physician appeared on the Colby farm thereafter a quarrel ensued, wherein revolvers were used and Colby shot the physician, the wound being only as slight one. The circumstances leading up to the sad affair of last Thursday evening as brought out at a coroner's inquest held by Dr. Maxon at the Colby farm last Friday, showed that Nye Colby had quarreled with his aunt, Mrs. Laura Colby, Newell's mother, who lived on the farm with the junior Colby family. He had also had a dispute with Newell's wife. He visited McHenry twice during the day and returned in the evening as the milking was being done. Mrs. Colby, who was later killed, doing the milking with a neighbor from whom she had asked assistance when Nye had said during the day that he would not help with the evening's chores. Nye Colby first entered into a dispute with the neighbor, Mr. Pfannenstill, who left the place and returned home, leaving Nye and Mrs. Colby in the yard in a dispute. Nye then entered the house, and procuring a loaded rifle, returned to the barnyard and shot Mrs. Colby, the bullet entering her left breast, and death followed instantly. After firing the shot that took her life he aimed the rifle at his own head, two bullets taking effect, one in the jaw and the other on the side of his throat. That he did not instantly kill himself seems marvelous, but he was able to get up and walk fifteen feet to the barn floor and from there ascend a ladder and crouch into the hay mow, where he covered himself with hay, his discovery resulting after a posse of citizens had searched about the premises several hours after the commission of the deed. Still alive, he was taken to the jail at McHenry, and his life was despaired of.

Mrs. Colby was but 25 years old, and was the mother of three children, the oldest of whom is less than 7 years and the youngest less than 3 years old. The Colby home Friday presented a sight seldom witnessed in this county. With the mother dead by a bullet fired by her husband's cousin, three small children about the place and the husband and father out of jail and in the custody of the sheriff's deputy, it was a scene that cannot be accurately described. Hovering between life and death from the time he committed the awful deed until Saturday night, Nye Colby passed away. The fact that his jaw was literally torn with the rifle bullets, his mouth shot badly, making it impossible for him to speak, yet he was conscious and indicated with his hands what he wanted he was able to make himself understood. He was also able to write, and wrote a letter, though its contents did not disclose his reason for killing Mrs. Colby, nor did it tell why he took his own life.
