Fair Play (Ste. Genevieve) July 9, 1892

A STRANGE CASE

Jesse Messer, reported lynched last August in Lafayette county for bank robbery, has appeared at his home in Pettis county.
Messer's supposed remains were disinterred, positively identified by his wife and father-in-law, and again buried. Messer's reappearance has created a great sensation. He says he went to Saline county where he secured work on a farm, and has been engaged there continuously since.
He had read in the newspapers that he had been lynched, and it is said he enjoyed a good laugh over it, but did not deem the matter of sufficient importance to apprise his relatives to the contrary.
The great mystery now is who was the man lynched ?

WORKMEN FIND $1,200

Boonville.---While making excavations for the new Victor building, workmen struck a bag of gold and silver money in an old cellar under a building torn down for the new one. The workmen, who are negroes, got about $1,200 from the find. Henry Williams got $400 and others got various amounts ranging from $45 to $85. It is supposed the money was buried during the Civil War, as all the coins, mostly $20 gold pieces, bore dates from 1859 to 1861.
