Mysterious Murder.
A Woman Murdered and Thrown Into a Mill Creek, Near Dalton.

The body of an unknown white woman was found this morning in Mill Creek, about three miles from Dalton.  The coroner’s inquest evidence developed the fact the woman had been murdered and thrown into the creek, blood having been found on the banister of the bridge.  From the condition of the body it is evident she had been dead several days, but was thrown into the creek late Monday night.  A buggy was hired from a livery stable upon which blood was found.  Charley Patten, who hired the buggy, and a man named Holman, were arrested, and are now in jail.  The evidence against the men is very strong.
