A MANIAC'S DEED.
An Insano Mother's Fearful . i
ering In of the Sabbath Morn

She Cuts the Throat3 of Three of Ha
Children and Then Attempts
to Take Her Own Life.
A Ghastly Seine That Greeted the Path
Wnen Awakened by the Screams
of One of the Link Victims.
Sr. Loci.s Md., May A trag
eiiy was enacted in this citj
early yestt.'rthy morning, surpussiug it
horror anything of a similar kind thai
has taken place fur years.
It occurred In the family of Alexander
Kdiuund, a Swede, aged about thirty-six
years his wife, Augusta, aged thirty
three years, and their four children,
William, aged uiue years; Kmma, aged
five years; Cora, three years, and Au
gusta, four mouths. Kdiuuud married
the woman in this city iu 187t, her
maiden name being Augusta Nelsou.
She was also a native of Sweden,
und in complexion and physique pos
sessed all the characteristics of her
race. She is medium sized, with a grace
ful ligure, blue eyes, light complexion,
h al of .perfect blonde hair. She
has a brother iu Allen County, K-is., an
other in Champaign, IU., and another in
Indiana. The remainder of her relatives
ire across the sea. Mr. Edmund did not
mow her relatives, and when the theory
A hereditary insanity was put forward
csterday he could not answer.
The family occupied three rooms, a
rotit room, bed-room Best in rear and
;he kitchen last. The husband and wife
md two youngest children slept in a bed
u the northeast ooruer of the middle
room or more appropriately the bed
room. The little girl Etuma, five years
)Id, slept alone iu a single bed iu the
iront rixmi and the boy Willie slept on
.he lloor at the foot of the bed occupied
ay his parents.
HOW THK Bl'TC'llEttY WAS DOSK.
About four o'clock the mother awoke
m an insane dellrinm. All testimony
:oes to show that the maniac was there
md the mother and maternal instincts
had departed. She crept stealthily out
of bed and step;d over the body of her
sleeping son, picked up the small writing
Jesk which was lying on the lloor. This
she carried back in the kitchen and taking
i large butcher knife from the kitchen
table, she iiSerted its point between
the lid of the desk and the body
proper and bearing down forced
it open after the same stvle that
a burglar uses a "jimmy" on a door. She
seized the glittering razor that had been
locked lu the desk and then tip-toeing
back into the bed-room she bent over the
body of her sleeping husband and drew
the weapon across the soft throat of her
four-months old baby. From the position
iu which the child lay early yesterday
morning it was evident that "the little
one never moved or made the
kat struggle. It was lying on its
right side with its face against
the wall, and on the left side of the
throat and neck was the deep incision
that terminated its short life. Walking
around to the foot of the bed the insane
mother next buried the blade in the
throat of Cora, a pretty little blonde,
aged three years. The child died altno.-t
instantly. Ignoring her sou on the floor,
she walked to the front room, and feeling
for the throat of her five-year-old Emma,
cut at the vital part.
SllK AWOkK AND Sl'ItKAMKl).
The child had been awar.ened by the
mother ami screamed when the steel
was applied to her throat. The frenzied
mother ran back to her bed and lay
down with her dead childreu. The
father heard the scream, but it took
him a few seconds to regain con
sciousness. Meanwhile Emma had crept
out of her bed and, drenched in a
stream of blood that flowed from her
throat, she started to walk into the
bed-room occupied by her parents. There
was a lamp burning low iu the room,
and the father sprang out of bed just as
his little daughter was coming through
"What's the matter, darling?" asked
the father, picking up the little girl.
"Mamma, mamma," was all the child
A IlHliWlU.K IUSCOVKKY.
Turning around he was horrified to dis
cover his wife lying on the bed in the act
of cutting her throat with a razor. She
had already inflicted one gash and for the
second time had slashed at her throat
with the weapon. Her husband ran to
the bedside and seizing the hand which
held the weapon he forced it from her
grasp. She did not struggle to keep it,
but relinquished it as soon as her hus
band caught her hand.
"My iiod, what do you mean? what
have you been doing?" he asked.
" 'Tl. best that we should die," gasped
the woman, while with every breath a
hot stream of blood spouted from her
neck. The husband next made the ter
rible discovery that three of his children
were dead or.dying, and, almost dement
ed, he rau to the door and shouted for
Olllcer O'Connor stood only a few feet
from the door, and with his assistance a
neighbor named N. A. Albertsou was
aroused and sent for medical aid.
Mr. Albertsou aroused Dr. l'irtle, and
about half an hour after the slaughter the
doctor arrived. The woman, mean
while, had beeu losing blood steadily, and
though still conscious, was very weak.
The physician made an examination,
and found that she had barely missed
the carotid artery aud jugular vein,
but had severed a number of smaller
veins and arteries, which will, iu all
probability, result In her death. The
two youngest children were dead, but
an examination of Emma, the last one
the mother attacked, showed that the
razor had not gone deep enough, aud the
little girl will live.
About half-past ten o'clock lu the morn
lug an ambulance arrived at the house
and the wounded woman was placed in It
and taken to the hospital. An undertaker
was engaged and the bodies of the two
children were washed, dressed and pre
pared lor burial. The Coroner will hold
au Inquest to-day.

J. F. Hurst presided, and Kev. B. J.
Eves, of Central New York, led the devo
tions. The report of the Committee on
General Conference Districts was con
sidered. The groupings of annual con
ferences by the committee was very un
satisfactory and excited general criti
cism, and It was sent back for revision,
with instructions to organize an addi
tional district. The report of the Com
mittee on Co-operation in Church Work
was considered. It provides for the con
tinued publication of the Chnrch Minnal;

On an Item recommending that pastors
of churches report the arooant of money
asked for the sopport of church societies
and the amount received, the previous
question being ordered, Bishop Hurst de
clared that Bishop Wiley, as chairman of
the committee, had the right, onder the
rules, to close the debate. Dr. Buckley
appealed from the decision of the Chair,
because, he said, Bishop Wiley was not a
member of either Conference or the com-,
mittee had no right on the lloor. The
house sustained the appeal aud the Item
was rejected. The debate ou the appeal
was exciting, members rising all over
the house shouting points of order, ques
tions of privilege, etc. Th house was
svldcntly jealous of what it regarded as
in encroachment by the Bishops on the
rights of members.

Loxiiox, May 2U. A very exciting
scene occurred to-day at the railway sta
tion at Dover shortly after the arrival
of the steamer from Calais. Tho police
authorities hud received a telegram from
Calais informing them that two men had
embarked there for Dover, carrying with
them two suspicious-looking bags which
utej un.uuieu very carefully, and giving a
description of the men. Several deh-c-tives
were at once sent to the dock to autit
the arrival of Uie steamer aud arrest the
men. The latter e nded the ditectivei
until the trim was about leaving for ljn
don, when they rushed into the station and
boarded the train while leaving the depot.
A couple of detectives were on the look
out for them at the station and seized
the men, who clung to the running train,
and a desperate struggle ensued, both
officers and men being dragged a consid
erable distant. The detectives finally
secured the prisoners and took them to
the iollce suiiou, where a search was
inadf. A quantity of dynamite was found
in their possession.
Londox, May 20. The alleged dyna
miters captured at Dover this morning
were brought to London. An Inquiry in

Samuel J. Tilden Said to Ee in a Rather
Nkw Yoisk, May 20. Information was
received late yesterday afternoon that
ex-Governor Tilden had suffered a very
decided change for the worse in the con
dition of his health, which was causing
great apprehension in the circle of
his intimate friends. The immedi
ate cause of this alarming change
wus not stated. Iu view of the
general interest felt all over the country
in the health of Mr. Tilden, as the proba
ble standard-bearer uf one of the great
parties in the next Presidential campaign,
every rumor concerning hiin becomes of
paramount importance. .Mr. Tilden, it
is well known, has been suffering for
some time with partial paralysis: but
through aM he has preserved a
mind astonishingly clear and as
tute. No immediate danger, there
fore, was apprehended. So long as
the retired statesman rested and refrained
from active political busiifss excitement
it was thought he would hardly sufferany
sudden prosiratiou ; aud it is said that
Mr. Tilden has beeu a very obedient and
cautious patieut, refraining until lately
from ail excitement likely to aggravate
his bodily troubles. Inquiry at .Mr. Til
den's house iu Gramcrcy Square elicited
the response that he was not at home, as
he had gone to his country house.

of Arabella Hazzard to be an important

clothes answer the description, and as the
paying teller gave Miss Harvard four 20
bills, the one found must have been one
of them. Mrs. Glasgow, a relative of the
missing lady, says siie docs not think the

Edward Shepherd, of Ilarrisburg, 111.,
says: "Having received so much benefit
from F.kctnc Bitters, I feel it my duty to
let suffering humanity kuow it. Have had a
running sore on my leg for eight years; my
doctors told me I would have to have the

instead, three bottles of Electric Bitters and
seven boxes Backlen's Arnica S live, ard
my leg is now sound and well."
