CRIME WAS PRECONCEIVED.
Letter to Friend Gave First ews
of TrajrcdY Povcrtv in the
Presence of Christmas
Thought to Have
Cleveland, O.. Deo. 20. Roscoe vV. Der
by, a machinist, about 45 v. ears old,
exterminated his family early to-day by
shooting his wife, his three children and
The crime Is believed to have been due
to his despondency over the impoverished
condition of the family purso and the near
npproach of Christmas.
Tho crimes were extraordinary in their
thoroughness and there was evidently no
mishap In their enactment. The wife was
killed first, while sleeping at her husband's
sldo in bed: two of the children were
killed as they ran hither and thither
through the house m the darkness of tho
early morning, endeavoring; to escape their
merciless parent- The third child was
kill! in lis bed after Its elder brother
and sister had been slaln.
L.ETTER IN MAIL REVEALED CRIME.
Tits first knowledge of the crime was
communicated in a letter written by Der
by yesterday to a friend, who lived not
far away, and which was sent him by
special delivery. Tho letter wHS to th
effect that when it had been received tha
Derby family would bo dead. When the
friend hurried to the house this moraine
all that had been promised was seen to
have been fulfilled.
The dead are:
Roscoe W. Derby; his wife. Delia; Har
old, aged 8: Alice, aged 7. and Thoma-.
aged 5. Derby had been downtown lata
last night ostensibly shopping, but in all
probability securing ammunition for his
revolver. When he got home his wife and
he talked with a neighbor, who had been
calling, over the approachinB festival.
Derby was pale and seemed nervous.
Shortly after his arrival at home the
nelghbpr-left and the Derby family went
The crime. It Is believed, was commit
ted about 4 o'clock this morning. Mrs
Derby was shot to death In bed, two bul
lets having been fired into her forehead,
and a third, probably fired after the chil
dren had been exterminated, in the back
of the neck.
WHILE SHE SLEPT.
Mrs. Derby probably waa killed during
sleep, the expression on her face showing
no sign of a struggle, and it was calm
Two of the children, however, had a
struggle with their Infuriated parent, be
cause they had been awakened by tho
noise of the revolver and sought to es
cape him, but without avail.
Harold's body was found lying In a pool
of blood in the kitchen, and that of Alice
in the dining-room with her face to the
floor and a. buUet in her breast. Harold
may have been chased by his father, as
there were evidences of a fight In the
manner in which tho furnishings of the
kitchen were thrown about.
From the location of the bullet In his
head, the boy evidently was caught by
Ids father In a strong grasp and held
while the weapon was placed against the
little fellow's forehead and the bullet sent
into his brain. There was no evidence of
a struggle on Alice's part. The last of the
children to die was Thomas, aged E. Ho
had remained In bed. probably still asleep,
and also received bullets In his head,
dying ins tint !y.
After the extraordinary crimes had been
committed the perpetrator of them went
into the bedroom, where his wife had
been killed, and, lying down at her side,
fired a bullet into his own brain.
A number of poolroom race checks were
found about the house, showing that Der
by had been trying his luck on betting.

Joseph Welnzlerl, proprietor of a saloon
at No. 2S0O South Broadway, yesterday re-
however, by the use of Mother's Friend before baby comes, as this
great liniment always prepares the body for the strain upon it, and
preserves the symmetry of her form. Mother's Friend overcomes all the
danger of child-birth, and carries the expectant mother safely through
this critical period without pain. It is woman's greatest blessing.
Thousands gratefully tell of the benefit and relief derived from the
use of- tins wonderful
remedy. Sold by all
druggists at $1.00 per
bottle. Our little
book, telling all about
this liniment, will be sent free.

In charge of the saloon only a few min

Every woman eerett

after marriage. The bearing
of children is often destructive
