Hunker Hill. III.. Aug. 7. Sentiment
here is slowly changing from convic
tion that Mrs. Ida Guller is guilty
cf murdering little Ewart Checkstield
to a conviction, that a grave injury
lias been done the woman. The theory
of the defense is that the child ate a
milk tablet composed of poison, and
that his death was due to. his own Ig
norance and the carelessness of his fa
ther. It is firmly believed by Mrs. Culler's
friends that when the chemical analysis
of the lad's stomach is completed it
will bo announced that. Instead of
strychnine being found therein, only
such poisons will be discovered as
make up the composition of the pink
milk tablets used in dairies. Mrs. Gul
