Constable Goff Succumbs to Wounds

After suffering for nearly two weeks with a terrible bullet wound in his breast, Jeff Goff, of near Creston, who was shot by W.H. Griffith succumbed to the injury early Thursday morning.  Griffith is still at large and there is but little probability that he will be captured.

There had been some hopes of Goff's recovery, as he was a man of iron nerve, and after the ball was removed it was believed that he would get well.  Apparently, he did improve somewhat for a few days, and it is said that he walked around the house the day before he died.  But Wednesday night he began to sink and died Thursday morning.  Mr. Goff was about fifty years of age and is survived by his wife and several children.
