The cuatom of country people to re tlro early probably led the hurglam to expect that everyhody ln the housa would be sleeping. The burglars, lt is belleved, being detected, Immcdlately shot the mlnlster and his wlfe. Tho shootlng wns heard by Mrs. ?lohn Sears, an aged woman who had been for years houaekeeper ln the Armstrong famlly. She was upstalrs when tho shootlng occurrcd. Illdea Under lird.

Mcanwhile the burglars ransacked the house and carrled away jewelry, money and other artlcles. Prosecutor Crossley and County Do teptlve Klrkham left here for tho acano of the murder this mornlng. It Is not belleved that the murderors left a clua behind. Evldencc of Strujrslr, Mr. Armstrong and hla wlfe were both shot ln the breast. They wero found ln pools of blood on tho first floor of the house. The pastor'a body was lying in hia study. That of his wlfe was In a doorway noarby. It was plaln there had been a struggle. ? The houso was not only ransackod, but the gold watch worn about the neck of the pastor was snatched from Its chain. Hls pockets were Vlfled. The Armstrongs llved ln an old homestead. Mr. Armstrong was known to be a man of consldorable means. A big farm adjoinlng the houso was leaseci to tenants. The pastor had only hls pastoral work to attenxl to. Early yesterday mornlng Joseph Sears went hunting In the noighbor hood of New Brunswick. He left his mother and the pastor and hla ? wlfe at home. Mrs. Sears heard her son's step As sho lay under the bed, almost In a stato of collapse. When he walked into the house sho came run ulng downstairs. Sears and his mother went to tho homes of nelghbors for help. A crowd soon collocted in tho house. Tt was seen that tho burglars had turned out all tho llghts after they had com'mltted the murder and finlshed robblng th'o houso. Mrs. Sears, in doscrlblng the tragrlo happenlngs of the night. sald she heard the shootlng and soreamtng and other nolses, and at first belleved that the house was falllng in. She thought the safest place was under the bed. Dr. Armstrong was a natlvo of New York State. He had been pastor of the Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church for moro than forty years. Mrs. Armstrong was a daughter of the late EUwood Huo, of Dutch Neck. Sho was about forty-flve years old. GAS RANGE BLEW UP iioim- Wreokcd, Wlfe Kllled nnd Ilim liaud Hiully Injureil. Falrniont, W.
