The readers of The Bulletin will re
member tho publication made about aix or
eight days since concerning tho treatment
the children of Mr. Ledbctter received at
tho hands of their step-mother, Mrs. Led
better. It was charged that she had rub
bed concentrated lye into the
scalp of the girl and filled the
mouth of tho boy with some of the same
article. It was done, so it was said, while
the children were asleep. That was Mr,
L's. side of the story. Now, however, Mrs,
L. comes to the front. Sho is a little late
in coming forward, but her statement is
none the less good reading for that. She
says they were married on tho 24th of Feb
ruary last, and sho hail been his housekeep
er from about six weeks before Christmas
While she was occupying this position Led
bctter gave her permission to raise the chil
dren by hand to wallop the youngdears as
often as she thought they deserved it and
in her own way; but as soon as they werj
married he attempted to deprive her of this
solid comfort. ''Everytime," says she,
"that we (Mr. and Mrs. L.) would go out of
the house the little girl, Katie, would get
something and put It on her head. On one
occasion she got hold of a little of "bar's
grease," which was part of my wedding
toilet (Mrs. L. is 60 or thereabouts, but the
womanly instinct still survives in her) and
used up that whole bottlo up before I was
aware of it. Of course, stranger, that riled
me .Well, about the lye. Last Mon
day week I was in the garden, and Mr. L.
and Katie were at the barn. Ledbetter saw
something on her head, and asked what it
was. Katie said she did not know. Then
he went to the house, to which I had re
turned from the garden, and commenced
cursing and abusing me. He told me to
leave the farm, or he would kill me. Ik-
loaded up a seven-shooter, and swore he
would blowout my d d brains, and colled
me, stranger, a few of the most awful names
you ever listened to; the worst that
could be raked or scraped. The box of
concentrated lye was on top of the 9afe,
and the girl got it, or it dripped offthe top
of the safe on her head. I never heard
anything about the lye in the mouth of the
boy. His name is John. Stranger, I could
put more in your paper alwut that Led
better than it would hold. He has whip
ped me exhibiting to tho editor signs on
her neck of a recent choking. I had f 9
when he married me, and I do believe that
man married me for my fortune. He got
this money and now wants to leave me
without a cent. I helped him put in
the crop, worked hard every day, rolled logs
and labored, and now his crop being in, his
feelings have changed, and he wants to get
rid of me." When asked how large Led
better was sho looked at the editor, who
can make the scales pop at 200 pounds,
while a contemptuous expression passsed
over her face, and she said: "O, my,your'e
a runt compared to him. He is a great
raw-boned man ; you are a runt, you are."
With this personal remark she ended her
interview, and strode from the sanctum
with the swing of a womun who has rights,
and knowing, dare maintain them.
