STRANGE MURDER CASE.
Story of the Crime for Which al
Yoong: Lady is Now on Trial.
The trial of Lizzie Borden for
the mnrder of bsr father and step
mother, now in progress in New
Bedford, Mass., is one of the most
remarkable of the age.
Mr. Borden and his Wife wer
murdered on the morning of Au
gust 4.1892, in their house, No. 92
Second street, Fall River. The
crime was committed, it is sup
posed, between half-past ten and a
quarter-past eleven o'clock. There
were that morning in the house,
which is m the heatt of the city,
five persone-Mr. Borden and hil
wife, Lizzie Borden, the servant, j
Bridget Sullivan, and John V.
Morse, Lizzie's uncle.
Mor?e, who was the guest of the
Bordens, left the h*>use early and
did not return until after the mur
ders were discovered. Emma Bor
den, Lizzie's sister, was away on a
visit to New Bedford. Thus it is
known that at the time the mur
der wa* committed there were four
persons in the house. Lizzie Bor
den and Bridget Sullivan are the
only-survivors, the other two hav
ing been Mr. Borden and his wife.
THE SERVANT GIRL'S STORY.
Mr. Borden, according to Brid
X Sullivan's story, was in the
iee at half-past ten. He went
; dining-room, sat down and
too~ * *Y and went upstairs by
the bacK .ray. He returned ina
few minutes, placed" the key on a
shelf and sat down in the sitting
room. Bridget says she remained
down stairs until five minutes to
eleven o'clock, when she went up
stairs to lie down.
Bridget saw Lizzie Borden pass
tfkrough the sitting room into the
dihaiiig room carrying an ironing
board a few minutes after Mr.
Borden went into the sitting room.
Bridget declares that all this time
.she did not know where Mrs. Bor
den was. Lizzie had told her Mrs.
Borden had gone out or was pre
paring to go out.
The servant says she had been
lying down only ten or fifteen
minutes when Lizzie called her.
Lizzie's voice told her that some
thing had happened. She sprang
&om the bed and harried down
' astaire. She says she found Lizzie
Beaning with her back against the
back door. Lizzie, according to
Biidget, said her father was dead.
There is considerable dispute as to
-whether Bridget meant that Lizzie
"had said her father was hurt and
Lizzie hurried Bridget after Dr.
'Bowen, who lives diagonally across
the street. Dr. Bowen was away
from home, and when the fright
ened servant came back Lizzie
-.sent her after Mrs. Bussell, who
Hives in Borden street. When
Bridget came hack with Mrs. Bus
?ell, Dr. Bowen and Mrs. Churchill
were in the house.
?Mrs. Churchill and Bridget went
upoftairs to look for Mrs. Borden,
who they believed had come in
while they were down stairs. On
Jthe floor of the bedroom, between
the bed and the bureau, they found
?MTS. Borden's body. They rushed
dtownsiairs, and Mrs. Churchill
told l>r. Bowen. that Mrs. Borden
had been murdered.
According to Bridgets testi
mony, when she went up stairs to
lie down Mr. Borden was in the
sitting room alive and well.. Fro m
?fifteen to twenty minutes later,
Chatis, at from, five minutes be?
fore eleven to fifteen minutes after
eleven, he was lying dead, with
about a dozen cuts, made by an
axe or hatchet, on his head and
THE ACCUSED GIRL'S STORY.
When Lizzie Borden was called
upon to testify she said her father
complained of being ill and lay
on the sofa. She adjusted the pil
lows for him. She was preparing
to do some ironing, and as her flat
irons were not hot enough she
went into the barnyard to pass the
time she would have to wait be*
fore she eoold use them.
In the yard she picked up some
pears that had - fallen from the
trees. Then she went into the barn
for sinkers for her fish line, as she
intended to go to Marion the next
day to fish.
She knew there were sinkers in
a little box upstairs in the barn
and she went there to get them.
That was the first time in three
months she had been in the barn.
Up stairs in the barn she ate four
pears,, and after looking for the
stakers returned to the house.
When she got there she found her
father murdered and summoned
The heads and faces of Mr. and
Mrs. Borden were so chopped and
hacked that they were beaten
almost out of human resemblance.
If Lizzie is guilty she must have
killed her father within tweiity
minutes and then appeared before
her neighbors without a spot of
blood on her clothing and without
any sign that she had hastily ad
justed her dress/ In that time also
she must have concealed so effect
ively that it has never been found
the bloody weapon with which the
deed was committed, and she also
disposed of every scrap of direct
evidence that would connect her
with the crime.
Lizzie Borden wore a blue dress
when the neighbors entered the
house and found her father and
stepmother murdered. She wore
a. blue dress about the house in
the morning. In two rooms blood
from the murdered ones had spat
tered and spurted over everything
for many feet around the dead
In the minds of the authorities
there never was doubt that the
murderer of Mr. and Mrs. Borden
was smeared and splashed with
blood. With the exception of a
single drop of blood the size of a
pin head on her white underskirt,
not a speck of blood was found on
the clothing Lizzie worn before or
after the murder.
THEORIES OF THE CRIME.
A lot of theorizing has been
done to try to justify the suspicion
that Lizzie killed her parents. One
suggestion is that she stripped
herself, and another that she cov
ered herself with a long rubber
garment that protected her cloth
ing. Rumors have been heard in
Fall River that witnesses have
been found who will testify at the
trial that from, the street they, saw
Lizzie at the window of the room
where Mrs. Borden's body was
found and that she wore what
looked like a hooded waterproof.
It is regarded, however, as al
most impossible for Lizzie to have
completely destroyed such a gar
ment in so short a time.
The time of the death of Mrs.
Borden cannot be fixed so closely
as that of Mr. Borden. It is the
opinion of medical experts in
Boston who examined the stomachs
of the murdered pair that Mrs.
Borden was killed from an hour
to an honr and a half before her
That being the case, and Lizzie
the murderess, she must have kill
ed her stepmother about ten o'clock
and epent the interval between
that hour and the time she killed
her father in calmly attending to
her household duties. Bridget
testified that during this period
Lizzie chatted and joked with her.
It was very plain that the mur
ders were not done for money, for
not a penny nor an article of value
was missed from the house. Mr.
Barden wore a watch and there
was a large sum of money in his
pockets, but neither was touched.
Nothing in Mrs. Borden's room
was found out of order, and none
of her jewelry was taken.
FALL RIVER, Mass.. June 15.
It is reported here to-day on good
authority that the hatchet with
which the Bordens were killed was
found by some boys hunting for a
ball under tba Crowes barn, near
the Borden pi em lees, The police
have ft in their possession and it
is considered as important ev ir
dence in the trial.
LATER-The Borden hatchet was
found on the roof of the barn and
not under it.
STILL LATER--The testimony re
garding the prussic acid was ruled
out this morning. This is consid
ered a big victory for Lizzie.

AN EDGEFEELD BOY
Writes a Long and Newsy Letter
ME. EDITOR : This place, Lyons,
Ga, is situated between the Ohoopee
river on the east, Altamaha river
on the south, Ocmulgee river on
the west, and Swift and Pendleton
creeks on the north, thus giving us
plenty of water power for rafting
timbers to the sea coast, and for
milling purposes. And of fish
there is no end. This is also a
splendid stock-raising country
owing to the abundance of water
and grass. Although the country
is well stocked with timber, the
grass seems to flomish and grow
as well as if there was not a tree
for miles. Another thing I have
noticed since-my stay here is that
there is no pine straw or "needles"
under the trees. Where they go
is a mystery to me. Why in Edge
field if you go under a pine tree
you can rake up enough to cover a
good sized Irish potato patch, but
here it is quite different, I suppose
they shed very little and then the
wind bl >W8 that away. The cattle
here are not used to grazing as
ours in Edgefield. I notice that
here they eat all the time, but it
seems to me our cattle at home
hunt the shade at noon. I suppose
this can be accounted for, because
at home the cows hunt the shade,
and here they are in the shade all
the time as the timber is very
thick. The greatest trouble about
stock here is the no stock law ;
cattle are branded or marked and
turned loose in the spring. About
middle summer you can see the
cattlemen riding around pening
the 6heep for shearing. October
and November they get up the
hogs they intend killing for winter
and the next year and feed them
on slops and corn. In .the fall
they Bell all the cattle they cannot
afford to keep during winter.
This is a busy place. Since last
writing we have a barrel factory
and two saw-mills, one with an
average of two car-loads of lumber
per day since completion.
The barrel factory lam sorry
to say is not doing much.
We had quite a revival meeting
a few weeks since, lasting ten
days, crowned with rich blessings
and the saving of souls almost as
hard as stone.
I never saw more earnest work
in my life. Rev. Mr. Smith from
North Carolina gave us two ser
mons a day for ton days, taking
all his texts from the Revelations
of St. John the beloved disciple of
our Savior. He explained the
Revelations and the second coming
of Christ, and the binding of
Satan 1000 yoars. These sermons
seemed to take, and evidently
worked heavy on the hearers from
the number of converts. On the
last day of service there were five
hundred people, more or less.
They could not begin to get into
the church. Our good brother
Smith gave all the sinners warning
and asked them to meet him at the
gate that swings from now to
never, and for all those who wished
to meet him in heaven to come
forward and give him their haud,
and he would pray unceasingly for
them. There were few dry eyes in
the crowd. Oh, how we all did
hate to see him leave us.
Rev. Mr. Smith has been preach
ing for twenty-five years, more or
less, and has a splendid delivery.
ile seldom if ever warbles or gets
tangled or stalled, as I have seen
some preachers do. He says he
prays God to make him speak the
words he would have him speak,
and he don't consult this commen
tator, and that for his sermons ; he
will give the different commenta
tors ideas and then give his own.
I must tell you of one of the
most romantic marriages on record
in tho annals of time in Lyons,
Tattnall county, Ga. While the
"big revival" was going on, there
was a couple boarded the West
Bound passenger train at Ohoopee,
Ga., a station on the Central R. R.,
ten miles below Lyons. On arrival
at Lyons off they hopped, and the
boy asked where he could get a
preacher. This little word let the
oat out of the bag, Some one con
ducted the couple over to the hotel
and there he found four preachers.
Wasn't he in luck? But the pieachr
ers wouldn't marry them right
away, they concluded to wait un
til half-past two p. m., as by that
time services would be over at
church and all could see the knot
To think tliey would have to
wait four hours longer. Oh wasn't
this terrible? That young man;
looked at his watch about everyv
five minutes, and I expect some
times oftener, twisted the seat out
of a rustic chair, and drank water:
about every ten minutest Soine
one to have some fun, told the
couple the agent had a telegram
for the manhal telling him to ar
rest them. This created quite a
stir, and up they jumped and went
to church to get married before
they could be arrested, but the
preaching had commenced, and
they were really scared to dejath.
The fun was just commencing
good then, and some "smart Aleck**
had to give it away. After "the
sermon was finished they were soon
made one and escaped the dread
ful arrear, and took the east bound
train for Ohoopee. The most ro
mantic part about it' is the young
man was EB green as the man who
thought pumpkins grew on corn
stalks, and only twenty summers
of age, while the lovely dove-like
bride was only forty-five hard old
winters and had been named,
grandmama four times. May thiB
be a reminder that all those who'
want to marry have a chance up to
forty-five or at least i.' e. if they,
come to Georgia.

the determination to master tele

good than all the literature he w?l
learn in years. I have not hearjl

Chased by a Ball of Fire.
During a thunder storm yester
day afternoon lightning entered a
second story window of the resi
dence of Harry Powell, corner of
George street and Boundary avenue
Mrs. Powell had just closed a win
dow and started across the room,
when a ball of fire flew through an
other window that had been left
open. It struck the floor within
two feet, of the lady, then bounded
up and exploded, filling the room
with smoke. Mr. Powell, who was
lying in the adjoining room and
was looking at his wife at the time,
saw her enveloped in smoke and
apparent flame. Fortunately, how
ever, Mrs. Powell escaped injury.
After the ball of fire struck the
floor, ripping up the carpet, the
bolt entered th? chimney at the
upper corner of the register, knock
ing through the flue.
Baptised After Death.
A peculiar story comes from the
vicinity of Eagle Cliff in upper
Walker county, Ga.
Several weeks ago a citizen of
that community, J. W. Massey, was
very ill with fever. He wanted to
be baptized and, as this could not
be done during his illness, he re
quested that as soon as he died his
body be immersed. He said he
bad neglected it during his life
time and wanted his dead body
baptised as a lesson of warning to
A few dayB ago he died and on

'.flUou at the
idea, and declared, "Carlisle will
never hold any such position. I
have heard him aud Hilary Her
bert denounce the demonetization
of silver as the crime of the cen
tury, but they have sacrificed their
honest convictions and smothered
their consciences for cabinet places
under Cleveland, an apostle of the
gold standard. The Democrats
have the House, Senate, and vice
President, but not the President
and Cabinet. Cleveland is Presi
dent and Cabinet, and it is a cabi
net of clerks, not advisers."
Referring to a recent article in
The Amencus Times-Recorder,
which was taken as reflecting the
views of Speaker Crisp, and in
which a fluctuating ratio between
gold and silver was advocated,
Colonel Tillman said : "Crisp was
elected on the free silver issue, aud
it is the only issue that can re
elect him. If he goes to wabbling
now and advocating any twenty to
one ratio it will, and ought to beat
him. Free coinage at twenty to
one is no free coinage at all. Six
teen to one is the correct standard
and there it will stay. This talk
about parity is all hocus-pocus. It
has as many aspects as the facets of
a diamond, and shines one way
here and another way there, and
still another there."
When asked if the repeal of the
Sherman law was the first duty of
Congress on reassembling, he de
clared emphatically, "No!" and
said the "silver men would filli
buster until the crack of doom be
fore they would ever eonsent to its
repeal until the free and unlimited
coinage of silver was adopted.
That is the first thing for Congress
to do.' The passage of a bill pro
viding for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at sixteen to one
will be equivalent to the repeal of
the Sherman act, and the si:ver
men will never consent to anything
When asked what he thought of
the assertion that the payment of
silver instead of gold for the trea
sury notes issued to purohase sil
ver under the Sherman act would
produce a financial panic he de
clared it was all "stuff ; the only
effect would be to appreciate silver
and depreciate gold. Mr. Cleve
land is not following the Sherman
law in paying only gold, for it pro
vides that the payment shall be in
coin, and there is no reason for
paying only gold, There is not
enough gold in the world to make
it the only money coin, and Bis
marck once said that trying to
make gold do the business of the
world was like two f? ' en trying
to cover up with one attie blanket.
The people of this country will
never consent to anything but the
use of both metals, and Mr. Cleve
land will never force the country
to his way of thinking. Lord
Burleigh said 'liberty would never
perish until the law-making power
became more corrupt than the ex
ecutiv?,' and it is the wisest maxim
of the ages. We now see the ex
ecutive using its patronage to in
fluence the legislation of the coun
try along lines in accordance wi th
his views and influencing with
office the honest opinions and con
sciences of men."
Our Carolina friend is frank and
fearless in speaking his mind, and
is a most entertaining talker, and
foiceful thinker. He believes what
he says, and is always ready to
say what he believes. He is not
alone in his views ; there are peo
ple all over this country who think
just as he has expressed himself,
but we are disposed to believe
their's is an extreme view. We
endorse cordially all that he says
on the silver question and the pro
per course for Congress to pursue ;
but though we have never been one
of the Cleveland worshippers we
are disposed to accord him honesty
of purpose, and to believe that he
will favor legislation in accordance
with the platform of the party on
which he was elected. The people
of the country will submit to noth
ing less, and it will be suicidal for
the party to fail to carry out its
pledges to the people. We prefer
to believe that the administration

needed to carry out the party

J. H. Lee came in yesterday from
the American ranch, west of Pres
cott, and related a strange story.
In the mountain crags near the
ranch several families of American
eagles have for years reared their
fearless brood, and have, in the
main, been unmolested, their chief
prey being snakes and other rep
tiles unwelcome to man. In the
same section a species of snake,
known hereabouts as the whip
snake, is also common. These
snakes are of the long, slim varie
ty, seldom larger than a good-sized
walking stick, but ranging in
length all the way from four to ten
feet. They are not considered
poisonous, but, like the boa-con
strictor species, wind around their
prey and crush it, and their squeez
ing powers are said to be somewhat
wonderful. So swift are these
snakes that they disappear, un
harmed, when struck at with a
stick, like the shadow of a flying
A few days ago Mr. Lee's sons
were hunting through the forest
near the ranch when they saw a
great eagle, which was sailing in
the air, suddenly dart to the earth,
heard a flutter in the brush, a
piercing ?Cream, and the bird rose
above the pine tops, an unusually
long whip snake dangling from his
beak. The eagle held the snake
just behind the head and rose rapid
ly. The snake seemed to be making
ineffectual efforts to draw its dang
ling body up to coil around the
eagle. The eagle was soon in midair
and the snake could not be eeen
but it was evident that a mortal
combat was taking place, for the
bird would rise and fall and emit
occasional screams, as if In pain,
and in a few minutes was seen
rapidly descending earthward,
turning over and over in his flight
and flapping one wing vigorously,
the other seeming to be held out
stationary. But nothing could be
seen of the snake. The bird struck
the ground with somewhat of a
thud near the boys, who hurried to !
the place, where they found the .
eagle with a death grip on the "
snake just. back of the reptile's
head, while the snake had coiled
round and round its assailant's
body, crushing the bird all out of 1
shape and breaking one wing en
The boys killed and unwound the
snake, while the dogs went for the j
eagle and Boon killed it, not, how
ever, before the bird had almost
torn the nose from one of the dogs

of a picturesque log cabin situated
in the State of Tennessee two peo
