+ Victim of Shot is Holding Own.
 O. J. TOWNSEND, Sportsman, Veteran Printer, in Hospital With Mystery Bullet in Head. - Seek Wallet
Anyone who happened to drive in the vicinity of Esperanze, the County Home, on the Penn Yan- Branchport state road between 10 and 10:15 a.m. Saturday may be able to shed some light on the mystery which surrounds the shooting of Oliver J. TOWNSEND, aged 69 years, Penn Yan veteran printer and sportsman. Yates County officials would welcome any information such persons might be able to give.
At about that time, while a Chevrolet sedan was parked on the north side of th estate road a few rods west of the garages which stand along that side of the highway, just before the road slopes over the hill and turns across the flays at Branchport, Mr. TOWNSEND was struck by a bullet from behind while he was standing on the south side of the highway looking across the end of West branch towards Branchport.
A few coins, his glasses and blood, found in the leaves along the side of the road, some 20 feet from where he was picked up coupled with a missing wallet, would indicate that someone else was in the vicinity during that brief period.
In the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial hospital Sunday afternoon, when Mr. TOWNSEND recovered consciousness for a few minutes. He told Dr. Allen HOLMES of the FOSTER-HATCH group that his companion had been gone but five minutes and he was standing beside the road when suddenly everything went black.

Wednesday, Mr. TOWNSEND seemed a bit brighter and stronger. Physicians feel it will be unwise to try to remove the bullet for a time at least, because of the unusual course it followed in missing vital spots.
Talking with officials, he recalls the exact amount of money on his person and that his billfold was buttoned in his hip pocket. It was a black leather wallet with his name stamped on it. He recalls the pain after being struck and his efforts to get up, also wondering how long before Mr. BALLARD would return. Mr. TOWNSEND has a hazy recollection of noticing another car approaching.

Mr. TOWNSEND treasurer of the publishers of the Chronicle-Express, was at the office for a short time Saturday morning, before he decided to take advantage of "the first good day in two weeks to go bass fishing".  Always an ardent fisherman, Mr. TOWNSEND had spent most of his spare time in years gone by on Lake Keuka after trout or bass. Making arrangements with Lewis BALLARD of Penn Yan, he went home to change his clothes, bought some bait on Lake Street and a lunch at a local restaurant and the two men
headed for Branchport in Mr. BALLARD'S car, intending to get some fishing tackle from BALLARD'S cottage and go to Bluff Point for a day of fun.
A flat tire caused Mr. BALLARD to pull off the road just west of Esperanza, beyond the garages and up the bank from several cottages, including one belonging to Mr. TOWNSEND. This was about 10 a.m. Mr. BALLARD started to walk toward Branchport to get the tire repaired. As Mr. McMINN picked him up a few rods away, Mr. BALLARD saw "O .J." get out of the parked sedan and cross the road.
Within 20 minutes he returned from Sutherland's garage at Branchport, changed tires and began looking for his fishing companion. Sounding the horn and calling brought no response, so he walked down the bank to Mr. TOWNSEND's and returned. Not finding him, he made a second trip; then a third trip to the lake to get water for the bait.
Driving to Branchport without finding him, he parked his car this time on the south or lake side of the highway. Still thinking "Ollie" might be walking along the shore, he stepped to the edge of the hillside and saw him lying unconscious with his head on a rock, out of side of the highway.

Mr. and Mrs. Allen McMINN of Branchport happened along just then. Mrs. McMINN went to the home of friends nearby, so Mr. McMINN could bring Mr. BALLARD and Mr. TOWNSEND to Penn Yan.

Concerned over his general condition since he lay on the ground nearly an hour, it was thought that the skull fracture from a fall onto the rocks.
When it was established however, that he had $125 in his wallet at the time and this was missing and when examination of X-ray photographs showed a bullet had penetrated the left ear and lodged under the left eye, a search was made at the scene Sunday morning.
Near one of the gravel piles kept by the road maintenance crew were found some coins. About six feet away were found his glasses and blood stains under the leaves. It seemed then impossible that he could have moved over the ridge by himself after being shot and some 20 feet down the hillside to the position in which he was found by Mr. BALLARD. Authorities, judging from the direction of the head injury and Mr. TOWNSEND's testimony at the hospital, believe that a hunters stray bullet from the woods above the road and towards Esperanza, or even a shot from the highway might be responsible for the wound, which obviously was not made at close range.
Yates county officials and extra state police have searched the ground on all sides of the scene without uncovering any further clues. State Trooper Fred GUYLE states that Oliver WELDY, aged 63, inmate at Esperanza, now admits that he was hunting in that vicinity at about that time and that he took a couple of shots at squirrels.
Sunday afternoon Trooper GUYLE and Deputy Sheriff  KIPP confiscated his 22 rifle and a supply of "short" cartridges. Recovery of the bullet from the injured man would establish definitely whether or not it was fired from this rifle. Mr. WELDY for some time has been permitted use of the gun for small game hunting on the county lands.
Officers hope that someone driving by the scene at 10 a.m. or shortly after may have seen something which will enable them to solve the mystery.

+    MIDDLESEX HOME CATCHES FIRE -    Excitement ran high at about 5:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon when an alarm was given that the Charles FOUNTAIN residence was on fire. A quick response by many village people who are well trained in forming a bucket brigade soon had the fire under control. It appears that early Thursday morning Mrs. FOUNTAIN raked leaves on the rear of the lawn. Desiring to burn them in a nearby ravines he used a small cardboard box as a receipt receptacle for carrying the leaves to the fire. After completing her task, she placed the box with others at the rear of the house, all in an inverted position. Late in the afternoon Mrs. FOUNTAIN smelled smoke in the house. She made a search through the house but could find no evidence of fire. After counseling with Mr. FOUNTAIN at the store, they decided it was something thrown in the furnace. At a few minutes after 5 o'clock the smoke became very noticeable. Opening the laundry room door, Mrs. FOUNTAIN was almost overcome by the dense smoke. She ran to the business section and summoned many from the store and restaurant. The fire was soon under control. The pasteboard box used in caring the leaves earlier in the forenoon evidently contained an ember from the fire as it was held over the burning leaves and took many hours to ignite, being nested with others at the rear of the house. It evidently ignited the boards which were in close proximity and then burned a hole through to the coal bin when it began to gain head way. The Rushville Hose company responded to the call, but it was under control when they arrived.
