' Adam GayringV a man sixty-four years
of age, y of Itonest and upright dealings,'
loved and respected by all who knew him,
presented himself bri the 8th "tilt.1,1 be fore
the authorities at Heidenheimi and staled
calmly that he had , jUst' killed i hisr wife;-1
His declaration Was immediately taken,
as follows: u:My -wife," he said, is ev.
ery one kaows,"has been suffering for a
long time from- tllness-and .'atrtimcs the
pains she had to endure were such as to
afTect her reason; she latterly gave op all
hopes of recovery," and continually "repeat
ed that not only was life a tor me nv' to hbr,
but that she feared that if I died before
her,, she would - be1 reduced to misery.-
This morning' after we had read Together
the 4th.cbipter of the Botjk5 -of Judge i
(they were devout' people and read theHi
ble every day; )she ietjuested me to drive
a nail into Iter temple, aa Jaei did to Sise
ra, as such a death seemed to her short
and easy, and would put an end to her suf
ferings; she said she forgave me before hand
for the hct, of which she absolved me
before God and mail. ; A;.nail, she said,
would not cause a great hemorrhage, "and
would make but a slight wound. , As soon
as I am dead,' she added, 4ybu can c!o'$e
the wound, put nie un a clean cap, aud no
one will know anything at all abut it
After long resistance (continued Gayring')
I gave way to the wishes uf my wife.' J
took a nail and began to drive it into her
temple with a hammer,lt,t he i:ail wag !o.

flattened itself on the bone. I then took
a small drill, but was equally unsuccessful
My; wife grew impatient,and it tjccsti dmp
to kill her at once with ihe ham uarr Which
I accordingly did by knocking i:i the skull.
The body of my wife is at my5 house,: where
you can cxamine. it at your,. leisure.
The magistrate itiinieJiately proceeded
to the house with . a . niedical man,, and

found the body dressed,- upon the bed.:
