farm, may havo returned to tho homo
of Elizabeth fimllli after setting fire
to Hie Oulnncis house and then made
a tecond stnrt for the Wheatbroo'x
farm, vvhero ho was emptojed, Is a
now Ihiory advanced bv tho State.
Representatives of tho prosecution
piolcss to havu discovered evidence
to show Ihat not only was lamphcro
seen to go toward the Guinness houso
at about 3:30 on tho morning of April
28, but bo was nlro seen to retrace
his steps. This was about tho time,
other witnesses will testify, that thov

This now theory Is that after re
turning to tlm Smith houso, Lam
phero niado n fresh start for the conn
trp about an hour after tho first de
parture but that on his second trip
ho took tho Gucnthor road from which
ho could hnvo been tho Arc.
If tho Statu Is able to fully support
this thiory It will bo n blow to Lim

somewhat relying on nu alibi that will
show that bo wont north that morning
on tho Giicnther road about an hour
alter tho tiro was started.
Laportc, Ind, May 13 There Is no
better way of indicating tho dcinonla
ml qualities now generally ascribed
to Mrs. Deltc Guinness hereabout than
by caving that whcji it Is" announced
at nightfall that ito moro bodies had
been dug In that garden of death on
the Guinness place everybody In La
portc was surprised.
Alwajs In her lifetime disliked, sus
pected and feared, the woman has now
become In tho public mind a perfect
paragon of blood lutt, craft and treach
ery. Apparently nobody would bo sur
prised to learn that every squaro yard
of her CO acre farm Is sown with tho
bodies, of her victims.
Meantime where Is Hello Guinness?
Aro those fragments of a ferrule body
that lie In the morgue, charred past
recognition, really hers or aro they tho
remains of utile, ono more of lwr.vlo
tlm8 Intended to throw dust- In the
eyes of tho police until tho multlmtir
dcrer makes good her escape.?
There aro so many circumstances tb
support cither theory that tho case re
mains today as mstertous as it was
last Tuesday when tho murder garden
jlelded up its first grim fruit.
Certain thrngs stand out as facts,
hard and brutal facts that cannot be
explained away. Since llttlo Dan Hud.
son and Joe Maxson got to work with
their picks and spades five da ago
they have dug up what tho doctors
say aro tiro remains of ten human
'oodles. Pour or thorn were burled In
a single pit about four by seven feet.
Only three of them havo been Iden
tified with any certainty. Tho first
was In life Andrew K. Hclgellen, a
mlddlo aged Norwegian, lured from
his home at Aberdeen, 8. D, by tho
expectation of marriage with tho woll
to do widow. Tho second was O. C.
Dudslevo, an oldcrly farmer from Iola,
Wis. The same bait brought him to
bis death. Tho last of the throe Iden
tified bodies was Jcnnlo Olson, a 15-year-oldagirl
and tho adopted daughter
of Uello Guinness.
All the remaining six whoso bodies
this terrible little ganfen has vleldcd
up wero men, with a single exception,
and when that is said all that Is known
of them has been written.
That all ten of these wero murdered
there Is no doubt. As to tho four
whoso bodies wero found beneath the
ruins of the house on the morning of
April 28 thero is some doubt. Thrco
of them were children of this Lucrctla
norgla of Laporte two gjrls and a
boy Myrtle, aged 11, Lucy, nine, and
Philip, five. In the Identity of tho
fourth lies the solution of tho prob
Murder for Revenue Only
Murder for revenue only was appar
ently the passion that consumed Delia
-Guinness. That several of her victims
wero persons from whoso deaths sho
could not profit In a pecuniary way In
no manner controverts this etatoment.
In ccry caso of wholesale murder
there have been somo victims who died
becaub'o their silence was to their slay
er moro precious than gold. In such
a position Jcnnlo Olson doubtless
found herself. This adopted daughter
was a slmplo minded, qulot girl who
was known to tho neighbors chlctty
because sho did moro work than any
hired man. v
Sho was Uello Guinness' slave. And
jet tho mlbtrcss feared tho slavo. Bo
tho slavo died and was burled In quick
lime in tho same death garden that
had received tho bodies of others who
died because they had mony.
What sort of a woman was this as
tounding murderer? That is a hard
question and yet something can bo
done toward answering, She was n

head, a mop of coarse hair of a muddy
brown, little cos that Just missed be

legs and feet grotesquely small for
tho burden' they had to Mipport.
Everybody who knew her ngrecs
that she was far from attractive
Most of her acquaintances describe
her as repulsive. Somo of her neigh
bors go further than that.
"Moro a devil than a woman," Is the
way William Dclsslen puts It, and hu
ought to know, becuusc his farm Is
next to the Guinness plate.
"My aunt was alwavB a strango wom
an," her nephew, John Larson, told
tho police tho other day. "When you
flrst know her sho would be very cor
dial. Then sho would get offish."
Her Place of Sinister Reputation

tho lcatt, In Laporte. Her homo has
for years borna a sinister reputation.

tho Mattlo Altle place, and under that

Within six months sho was at hwonl

Tho Death of Guinness.

tho place was marked. They might

Three o'clock on a cold l)e ember
