BRIERLY, Quitman

Quitman Brierly whose parents reside here was found dead Sunday night on the panhandle railroad at Sligo. At first it was supposed that he had fallen asleep on the track and had been run over by a freight train, but later developments enshrouded his death in mystery.  Some time ago  he escaped from the lockup here, having been arrested on an old charge and went to Pittsburgh, where he had been living as a painter. On Sunday afternoon young Brierly spent several hours in a speakeasy at Sligo, which is frequented by Italian and other foreigners of that vicinity.  Brierly it is said, quarreled with the Italians who were intoxicated. When he left the speakeasy it was about 8 o'clock in the evening. The Italians followed him down the railroad towards his home and renewed the quarrel. When last seen Brierly was talking with the Italians who had surrounded him and were threatning him.  His body was found lying alongside the railroad tracks the same evening. The wounds to his head looked as though they had been inflicted by a knife or some other sharp instrument. No other marks of violence were visable on his body. Steps will be taken at Sligo to investigate Brierly's mysterious death. The funeral took place Wednesday from the residence of his parents on Francis Ave.

BRINKMAN, Thomas N.

WESTERNPORT MAN BICHLORIDE VICTIM ~ Thomas Brinkman Took Poison Nearly Two Weeks Ago - Cause Unknown
Growing weaker and weaker each day from the effects of taking bichloride of mercury nearly two weeks ago, Thomas N. Brinkman of Westernport, died this morning at 5 o'clock at the Western Maryland Hospital. He was conscious to the last, but did not give his reasons for taking the poison, nor did he say whether he was sorry he had taken it. Brinkman was only 20 years old, and was married on November 21 last to Miss Mary Berry of Luke. The young people had just bought their furniture and were preparing to start housekeeping. The furniture reached Westernport from this city on Monday and young Brinkman had it hauled to the house where they were to start housekeeping. After working several hours arranging the furniture he went to Dr. J. T. Wilson, in Piedmont, and asked for some bichloride of mercury tablets, complaining of a sore on his back. On his way to his parents' home he swallowed eight two grain tablets. When he reached home he became very ill and Dr. Wilson, who was summoned, at first thought he had an attack of indigestion, but later became suspicious and questioned the young man, who admitted having taken the poison. Brinkman's wife and his parents Mr. and Mrs. Henry Brinkman were at the bedside when he passed away. Young Brinkman was a pipefitter by trade. Besides his wife and parents, Brinkman is survived by four brothers and three sisters as follows: Theodore and Oscar Brinkman, Virginia avenue this city; Oray and Wesley of Westernport; Mrs. Edith Twigg of Westernport, and Ella and Anna at home. Young Brinkman was a member of the Red Men. The body was prepared for burial at Stein's morgue and sent to Westernport this afternoon on B. & O. train No. 55.
