Saturday afternoon, the little tillage of Troy Oroe, JTobably bettor known aa no cuer, in the township of I toy Groo, about -JO tntlea northwest of this city, was (he cnc of the most horrible murder etor per uotralfd Inside the limits of U Halle county Vol since the diabolical outrage and murder ot poor little Maggie Cuddy, some years ago near L'tics, has such p fiendish crime rouchtcon.ternation in the hearU of the reople of this section. This brutal and un ..minimi! murder by an need man on hi iv - " 4 f still moro ngod wife in, inded, almost loo -hamly and sickening in its details for pub lieMlon. The ages of the parties to the Moody transaction in given by one of our , .-.rrwondents and others differently One places the age of the murderer at 84 and his wife at "2, while another has the age of farmer firt anil his wife 76. which is probably the more correct. In a little farm buibnng on the ouUkirts of tlic fil'age, thcro came ti reside, two tuonll !" ago. from Harvard, this elate, Hi am Sears, Sr., ami his wile, Hie murderer md Lis victim, togetber with Ins eon, Himm Sears. Jr., and the latter wifoand - vc or nil small children. Hiram Scars waa riven employment by the Spring Valley road as foreman of tho section gang. No forebodings of the dreadful calamity whioh 'lapprned Saturday afterntiori, cast their -lightest shadows over the little household 1 1 tram Scars, though somewhat exacting and ( a very jealous disposition, never evinced .ny tuch murderous traits ns to make him headed by the family. For tho past ihrce venrs, however, slight domestic quarrels oo- irrcd at intervals, but even theso were inhwJcd. The direct cause which led to j'.ic bicody tragedy happened during the vveek preceding the murder. Hiram Stars ircudcd his aged wife of the practices of witchcraft, that a mau by the niuno of Moloney hivl put tho " stuff" into her tead nnd that die was endeavoring to be witch him. Mr. Scars uid not think the waiter worthy of dispute, and when on Sat .ifterr.on bttween the hours of three nnd !'.ur o'clock, be entered the houio with ..irpenter's hand e-iw and made the Mine hfcuwilions which the woman diJ not deny. Then followed this most bloody and inhuin m f'stcliery. Scars attacked his wife with the iw which has a short thin blade and is as UvkI'; a weapon in tho hands of hii infuria- od man as a keen ci'tling sabre. Mrs. -oars cried to him to stop but he replied hat he would not, ami thrd ho was going to .nii.li her. She Bed toward her bed room t Vile lie onlinued Unking her, at.d getting vudde tho locked the door, but he coon f.rctJ his way thrown and deliberately retire J the door fiom the inside, and then 'egan his woik of n:urder amidst the aon i.ing cries of his oged and invalid wife for retry, which (ell cold on the lruU heart, t he hashed and cmcd her until satisfied '1st Lis fearful crime was complete, lie nm fled towards tho woods near by. Vbi!e his lloolytn-cdy wai being enacted in .'.el e lroom, the younger Mrs. Sears ran to i ne'itfjborinjr home with hir children fr.r rolcrtlon and calling for assistance, which vs (05 lute when it arrived. There a scene hi.h wcuU horrify the Ktoute-.-t hc:ut met 'tpgvrcof theso who arrived at the little r.c Mury tuvi-p. On the be! room f!o..r lay lie jrtr worn .n, her gray li'iir floating in n cf Llowl. There was bl od on the walls .,ul on the be 1, and the room had the tip rrjvee 'f veritable slaughter bouse. n,c c,ur:::;r.' vLf'.l wai ymrtiUcd in by the blade in several place.'. There were : i;.r deep at.d distinct p'-hes on the head tiyl c'r.een the tsceV, while the luivcr ,iaw hone broken ami one ear t;l off. The -boulder nnd upper portion cf the body vr-rc r.vo fear fully mutilated. The hands vltf.h tie pof r womm threw up in mute np l'cslthat her li'e might be spared were inmi in the m-l sheckin? manner. It w:i -tiiT a sight to appall the Floulest heart, j lie vic'.im was, of course, unconscious an I n-miur.cd so for about two hours after the as--inlf, when she died shrouded in her blocd. ! cinl.'crivl garments. The. niiirurrcr was placed under astcM by fii?!al .'eh" Stevenson, of the village at rec o'clock that night, who found liii- mtin at Mr. l iri'ttlnc."' boarding house. Then be ing no calaboose in the village, tho prisoner humidified nod guarded iu Stevenson's : id. Am intj'trsl was held Sunday after-n-jn, the jury rendering a verdict in nccer- Imcc ith the alunc MafemcnH of the 'mrnr. Sui day night the prisoner ns-ked Mr. Stevenson t truthfully ansfor jone f icUoo whifh he would rut to him. The Ti'r reeled that if he answered him at all i-i wci.'d be the tmth. The prisoner then -nl Is she deal!" and being answet el in the afTrmative, replied: "It cant't be bf'.re.'i how ; 1 am ready to die too." When Vie was arrested by the officer he denied all lidgc of the tragedy, and that his name wsis ut Sears. Oil being searched two Univcs. one w'th a biodo four inches long, i,-i a large, heavy, old fi-hioned ra.or were .'runl in his pockets, which he etrongly - rj vied to giving up. As to his sanity, that 'ivl nerr before U-ea rjneRtioned up to the :irpc of the murder. He lia acted ns ration jlly as usual and takes tha matter as cooly ud unioncrrneJ as though he was charged -. 'v'c. a tr'.ffting misdemeanor.

MUl'.p.in'n c: -. .yl 'rr;c crvwJ .'tn c' i.i the ! room and throngeJ the corridors, desiring to grat ify a morbid curiosity by seeing the man who had literally chopped his aged wife to death. The prisoner is a man below rued ium elalure, of slight build and would weigh about 140 pounds, and was poorly dressed. His long hair and full beard were white with age and ha looked anything but a murderer. In fact there was an air of simplicity and innocence about the grsy haired fiend that would muke one seriously disbelieve that he was the nuthor of such a crime. After a short time spent in the Sheriff's office, the prisoner was lodged in the jail and assigned a sepirato cell. His son Hiram desires the father's speedy prosecution and punishment, which will undoubtedly be either hanging or a life sentonco. The latter would scarcely be adequate punishment for tho great erime, aa the prisoner has but a few years to live at best, though this may be his sentence on account of his years. The murderer is of German descent and a native of York state, having been married uO years. He hue two widowed daughters at Kockfrrd, and ccesou as formerly stated. The family are in poor circumstances. On Wednesday the body was brought to P.ockford for interment. Mr- Stevenson ays that he has reided in the , villago of Homer for 20 yearn, and that this was tho first murder in that vicinity. Thcro wero threats of lynching the prisoner Sunday night, but no ergsnized effort was made on account of the lack of leadership- The weapon with which tho phatiy crime was committed was brought, here etained with blood and w ith the gray hairs of the victim clinging to the gory bla le.
