Rich Farmer Missing
Waterloo, Oct. 31 Ė George Hausman, a well-known farmer whose home is seven miles north of Waterloo on the Logan Road, is missing today, and the local police have declared themselves strongly of the opinion that he has been foully dealt with. Hausman came to Waterloo yesterday afternoon, driving in on business from the farm. Early in the evening he was seen of the street by an officer. He had been drinking some but was not intoxicated. The policeman, who knew him, accosted him and told him he better leave for home. Hausmann was surrounded by a bevy of companions. He informed the officer he would leave as soon as he had taken another drink of beer. Several hour later the police found the manís team still hitched on the street. The horses were united and put in a local livery barn. This morning, Mrs. Hausman, after an all nightís vigil search came to Waterloo to look for her husband. She visited the police station and the Marshall recalled the incident which the officers related to him.
