the suspects arretted and taken to Jeffer

own wife, who apjieared before the grand
jury and testitied that Stone arose in the.
night and complained of a violent tooth
ache and said that he was goia to a den
tist to have it abstracted; that he did not
return until a late hour, and then In-inu
covered with blood he asked for a change
of clothes: that Stone maintained that the
blood on his clothes was caused by the
bleeding of his to.itli.
There Were seven in the t.aiig.
On inquiry it was fuiiuil that no doctor
or dentist had extracted a tooth for Stone.
Tuia was dee.ued strong evidence, espec
ially when coming from the man's wile.
As soon as Stone was brought to town the
Krand jury went to work to obtain a con
fession from him. At lirst lie strenuously
denied everything, but living assured that
clemency would be grai.ied to him if he
Uit.de a confession, he at last yielded to

to be coaimitted Cosby and Stone Lad
not yet arrived. Cosby was in the city
.Monday evening and was so uruiik that
he got past going, and did not reach the
house at all, but Stone arrived after the
murder had been committed and because
he was late the other conspirators wal
lowed him in the blood ot the v ctims aud
in that cund.tiou permitted him to g'
home, aud that was the nail that fastened
down the lid of their coflius.

They could not find a cent of the money.
As Stone did not arrive until the six mur
ders were committed he does not know
why they killed the Wratten family. All
the criminals have been arrested and
taken to Jeffersonville. Williams and
Kayes were already in Jeffersonville
prison. Urown, another suspect who was
taken to Jeffersonville, had no connection
with the tragedy and will be released. The
excitement is more intense than ever. Woe
to the murderers if a Daviess county dele
