t Jafdsu- They render*! a Terdict to
yl «Ask that the daceaand was named
PiM Daaflcld; that he wan a native ot
Virtiaia and aged about 57 years; that
to hie death on tbe 3d day ol
jVfgptar, 1577. in this county, by bit
ova hand. to wit: by shooting bimseit
to the head with a pietol and takina
nwhnins and that the act resulted
*am temporary insanity. The te»ti
aoafof the two girls is that they went
to bed about 10 o'clock, and after a
v hile their father catne up and ley
jo*a ea a mattine*. His wife came op
to go to bed but he drove her aw%y

and sat in a chair by t»»*» Are, where she

younger girl slipped by him. bjt the
elder ran back into the garret. and got
outside ou the porch. He then ran
jgfo stairs after the second daughter,
chasing her into the yard and cut her
OB the back of the neck with a butcher

Mor. After catting bis daughter, be
ran into the kitchen and shot himself
ia the back of tbe b*>ad with a
lay navy revolver. H - then went
op stain and taking a dose of *trvcb
aaM died on his mat trass H»p
par says that Duutield came into bis
luuai with a laater in one huud
sad au as in the other. He saw h»
danger, and dodged under Dunfleld's
ana. ss the ax fell. He tbeu run to a
neighbor's bouse tor assistance. Mrs.
Duutield is in t very critical condition,
hir throat being cut nearly from ear to
«ar, and ber windpipe being aluioet en
tirely severed by the razor, which bare
ly escaped cutting the main arteries ot
tbsaaok She was sitting asleep in tbe
chair at tbe time, and did not btmr birn
until be seized ber by tbe bead, and
drew tbe rasor across ber throat. An
oaaoa bottle of strychnine was fouud
by tbe aide of bit bed. nearly empty
showing conclu-ively that be bad taken
a very Urge dose of the deadly drug.
That Doufield baa been more or leas
cmy at differeut times, there can be
so doubt, and it is said he was once an
iaoste of tbe insane aaylutn at Stock
toe. He has alwaya bean more or less
troubled about his financial affairs. He
had a good place on the Duwa'uiab
river, where he w uted to reside, bat
bh wife preferred to live in the city,
sad he eould uot make a living here ,
bat kept going deeper in debt
Uut Sunday afternoon he at ori
ia front of thia office and was inhaling
chloroform from a handkerchief, when
oer leporter asked hiiu what be WHS do
ing that for. Mr. Duutield replied that
be was pained wi*h neuralgia. He bad
nstaola hia farm through AugusMack
wash to parties in Port Oamble for
|l,ooo, hut bad not yet received the
aoasy. This case only goes to show
that men who have ntsnifes*ed symp
tarns of insanity should not be suffered
tobs at large. There are other men
walking the streets of this city every
day, Who ought to be locked HO. If we
wwa to name them wt should be set
dam aa a meddlesome interloper. But
MM ef th «e days there will be anoth
er Danfield tragedy and then every
-1 see it plainly em Uib. These
tefarous people shoula b • sent to a
Mil place, no matter what their rela
tions think ot it.
