; s serious illness of three ethers by poison.
Uninvited, Ella went te all the funer

with children was te give them rat

children are net yet out of danger. The
nvo-year-eld son of Geortre Garleck was
next poisoned, and a ymnic seized the
neighborhood. Every child was cate
chised te learn if they had eaten or
drank any thing given by Ella. Ella
has confessed everything, and said in
the case of the little Eggleston children
that she wanted te go te their funeral
because they would leek se nice dead.
When the death of the little Stenner
girl was brought up, Ella said. "Yes,
she looked awfully pretty in a celllu."
When the Stenner girl was sick Ella
was osked by her mother what the
trouble was, the reply was given, "I
think she is going te Heaven." Frem
then until the child died Ella made
