One ot the saddest and most sensa
tional tragedies that has ever shocked the
people of Rock Itland, one of those
peculiarly unfortunate and unexplainable
affairs which, alas, lave not been infres
quent in nature throughout the country
of late, occurred in t iis city this morning.
Mrs. F. E. Rand, wife of the late con
ductor. F. E. Rand, was found dead in
bed with her children on either side of
her and each almost beyond relief from
the effects of deadly inhalations,
the act and purpose of their mother, who
succeeded too well in effecting her own
death. Drs. Craig itnd Bernhardt, who
were quickly summoned, were not long
in pronouncing Mr. Rand dead, and
tbey were keenly aware, too, that If the
children were saved, it would be only by
the most energetic and skillful efforts.
AN AWFUl. SCENE.
The awful scene as beheld by an Arous
reporter almost Immediately after the
discovery, was on 3 that told the
story of the terrible ciae without inqui
ry. The poor mother, left alone in the
world by her husband's death only two
weeks ago, oppressed beyond consolation
by the separation from one who bad been
so loving and devoted, had, in a moment
of despair, though not without premedi
tation. taken her own life and attempted
to take her children with her. Thii
theory, quickly as it was formed, was
Mrs. Rand had beon despondent and
oppressed ever since the 'death of her
husband, Conductor F. E. Rand, of the
C. B. &Q , who, tie readers of the
Arous will remember, died suddenly of
hemorrhage of the lungs at his
home, 107 Thirteenth street. Wed
nesday morning, March 6 two
weeks ago this miming. He had
been out on his run as nsual the day be
fore, returning that night, his wife ac
companying him as was her custom dur
ing the last year of h s life, realizing as
she did. the near approach of death and
fearing that it might occur at any time.
She loved him dearly; and although she
knew of the inevitable, and his death,
though it came without final warning,
was not unexpected, wts to her a great
blow and she never rallied from It. Since
her return from Lyndor whither she ac
companied her husband s remains for In
ferment, she has worn a sad and hopeless
expression, has talked continually of her
loss, and the tender offices of sympathy
on the part of neighbors, and friends
have failed to comfort her.
Last night Mr. and Ms. Freeman, of
Little Sioux. Iowa, tie latter Mrs.
Rand's sfster, and who have been with
her ever since her beret vemcnt, started
for home. Mrs. Rand S'Ood on the door
step as Mr. and Mrs. Freeman departed
and sLe turned to go back into the house
was beard to remark: "1 don't see why I
couldn't keep poor F-ed." She had
often said: "I don't s;e why I bad to
give Fred up; he was so loving and good
to me." Later in the evening Mrs. Rand
made enquiry of some f her friends for
a bible. She finally succeeded in tettinc
one from Mrs. O. Q. Sommers. who re
sides across the street, net informing the
lady of anything concerning her purpoie
exce pt a desire to look u o something.
DISCOVERT Or THE TRAGEDY.
It was not until about 8:30 this morn
ing that the neighbors ht.d any intima
tion of the tragedy. About that time
Mrs. Sommers called at the home of Mrs.
W. O. Willis, wife of Conductor Willis,
who lives in the north side of the
doable brick on Thirteenth street.
the south side belns' occuDled bv
Mrs. Rand, and asked f any of Mrs.
Rand's children bad been seen this morn
ing. Mrs. Willis replied negatively, and
said she would investigate. Mrs.Willis
had heard of. Mrs. Rand's children being
unwell during the day tefore, and she
thought this might have kept them in
bed later than usual. Going to Mrs.
Rand's house she rang the door bell, and
receiving no response, went to the rear
door and found it locked ulso. Conduc
tor W. H. Whitfield, whote house is im
mediately south of the doable brick, was
advised, and he and Mrs. Whitfield joined
Mrs. Willis and Mrs. Sommers, who by
this time had become steatlv alarmed.
Mr. Whitfield forced opened a
window and admitted the ladies
by opening the back door from the
inside. Mr. Whitfield then led the
way to the hall, and the smell of escap
ing gas, which was almoit suffocating,
aroused their appfehensioi s. Hurrying
up to Mrs. Rand's chamber on the second
floor and opening the door the room was
found full of gas. Mrs. Hand lay dead
upon the bed, her face pinched and
showing every mark of having expired
in intense agony. A ehild lay on either
side a girl of five and a boy of six. The
boy was unconscious, but the girl was
awake, and Mrs. Willis no v thinks she
beard the little girl cry whe i she tang the
The children were quickly carried to
Mrs. Willis' home, where e ery means of
restoration were applied by Drs. Craig
and Bernhardt. The girl, Lottie, who
fell into atnpor almost as soon as
found, was not long in reviving, but the
boy, David, lingered between life and
death until nearly noon, whi n the doctors
expressed belief that he would recover.
Mrs. Willis, Mrs. Whitfield and the other
ladies in the neighborhood worked faith
fully with the unfortunate children.
Examination of the
showed that- three gas jets had been
turned on by Mrs. Rand before retiring.
On a bureau In a room imn ediately ad
joining that occupied by lira Rand, was a
lighted lamp which, strange to say, bad
been burning some time, ani had appa
rently been lit by Mis. Rand, though it is
remarkable that it did not etse an ex
plosion in a roonc so filled with illumin
ating gas. Close by the lamp was the
bible she had borrowed the night before,
and open at the twenty-third Psalm,
which was marked with a lead pencil:
The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not
He maketh me to lie down in green
pastures: he leadeth me beside the still
He restoreth my soul ; he leadeth me in
the paths of righteousness, fur his name's
Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil for thou art with me; thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in
the presence of mine enemies; thou an
nointest my head with oil; my cup run
Surely goodness and mercy shall fol
low me all the days of my life, and I will
dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
A FAREWELL LETTER.
On a table near the bed was a note
carefully addressed to R. L. Porter, of
Beardstown, traveling auditor of the C,
B. & Q. road, who is a brother-in-law of
the deceased and who was just leavins
the city this morning, having visited the
distressed lady. He hurried back to the
house and opening the letter found writ
ten in a deliberate and plain band on
black bordered note paper:
Tuesday Eve, March 19.
Dear Rob and Emma: "I feel so
badly tonight at what I am about to un
dertake that I am nearly wild. Children
said their prayers and wanted to awake
in heaven in the morning, and as I am in
favor of joining them, will turn on the
gas tonight and thus end three lonely
lives. Rob you know now why I took
you up stairs and told you what I did.
I have been so weak and lonely for two
weeks, and then when I think of the fu
ture I know the Lord will grant me this
tivor as permission to take me to his
arms just as though I had always looked
to him for advice which I have more in
the last two weeks than before. Do not
mourn too much for me, but say 'she and
the children are better off' and are safe in
His loving arms. "Give mother a good
home, as she will not live much longer,
and do as you see ill with all things in the
I hope you can straighten up every
thing all right, and that we wiil meet be
yond the river bye and bye.
Your loving sister.
Em M. Rand."
On the back of the leaf written, as if
by after thought was:
"Bury me in my black silk, and the
children in one coffin with shrouds on
them; put us by the side of papa in one
now little the poor woman knew how
far her insane purpose would succed and
bow far it would fail! One paragraph
of the note pertaining to a business tran
saction of no concern to the public, is
omitted from publication.
There is a strong probability that Mrs.
Rand took some kind of poison before
turning on the gas, to make sure of her
own fate, as it is a peculiar fact that she
should have died and the children sur
vived the effects of the gas. From the
tone of her note, she probably told them
of her intentions before tbey went to
sleep, and led them to believe they would
Coroner Hawes was summoned as soon
as possible, and empannelling a jury
composed of C. W. Hawes. (foreman).
Robert BenDett, Thomas Thornton, S R.
Wright, John Brennan and Wm. Blancb
ard, proceeded to hold an it) Quest.
Dr. Carl Bernhardt was the first wit
ness examined, and he testified to being
summoned to Mrs. Rand's home this
morning and the finding of the body stiff
and cold, and apparently dead several
hours. The cause of death was, in the
doctor's opinion, suffocation by gas, as
there was a strong smell in the room, al
though the windows and doors had been
opened about twenty minutes, as the
doctor had been Informed. The two
children were found in the same room
very much under the influence of gas.but
not dead. Witness thought deceased
must have taken poison before opening
the gas jet.
Dr. O. Q. Craig testified to being
called to the house, seeing Mrs. Rand'B
dead body and examining the children
who bad been removed to the residence
of Mrs. W. O. Willis. Witness' opin
ion as to the cause of death, was that
it was the result of inhaling gas and pos
sibly assisted by some other poison, as
the children who had been in the room
with her were much less affected.
Mrs. W. O. Wills. Mrs. C. Q. Sommers,
W. L. Whitfield and Robert Porter testi
fied to facts in substance as heretofore
given, and the jury finally returned a ver
dict that Mrs. Etta M. Rand "came to
her death by suffocation by illuminating
gas in her own room, turned on by her
own hand and with suicidal intent."
The terrible act, and the desire on the
part of Mrs. Rand to destroy her children
also, is probably the result of insanity
brought on by

over her husband's death. She was not
left in want, as he had an insurance
policy for $9,600 and she also has props

Her maiden name was Etta M. Stevens.
She was married to Mr. Rand at Den

tended to take the 3:45 p. m. train for

The Riot at Oxford.
No more forcible illustration of the con
servative instinct which causes usages of the
middle ages to survive to the present day
could be cited than the riot at Oxford, which
occurred on Feb. 10, 1354. At that time
frequent conflicts took place between the
students of the university of Oxford and the
citizens. The contest continued three days.
On the second day in tho evening the citizens
called the country people to their assistance
and thus re-enforced they completely over
powered tho scholars, & considerable number
of whom wero killed and wounded. The
citizens were on this account debarred from
the rites and consolations of the church; their
pnvuoges were greatly narrowed; they wore
heavily fined, and on annual penance forever
was enjoined that on each anniversary of the
conflict tho mayor and sixty-two citizens
should attend at St. Mary's church, where
tne Litany should be read at the altar and an
oblation of one penny made by each man.
Effects r Heavy Hair.
"I do uot believe that heavy hair takes
away strength," said a leading physician the
other day. "Heavy hair may be burden
some to weak people by its weight in the
same way that a heavy hat or bonnet might
be. Its growth is only weakening In the
same sense that all growth may be, and the
growth is ordinarily compensated for by
food. In any event, there is no way of re
tarding the growth of the hair. Cutting
only stimulates it, but it moy relieve the
sense of weight.
"We rtiouid do nothing for the hair of a
chilil beyond keeping tho head clean. Many
children are extremely blow in getting hair,
but it conies ultimately, and so far as obser
vation is an authority, Just as abundantly as
in other children. The growth and develop
ment of children is very often fitful and un
even, one part growing seemingly at the ex
pense of another for the time." New York
