Mr. Pattcr i son was attain admitted to hail. The circumstances of the case, which j.have previously been explained, seem II most puzzling.* since it has been im [ possible to find a motive for the deed, and large numbers of witnesses tes tify to the good eharacter of Mr. Pat terson and the usuallv happy relations between himself and his wife, and she 'testified at t ho trial that their "do ] jnestie relations win.1 as nearly perfect 1 as could be. I am fond of him and bo of me. and never gave me any [disagreeable v.ord.s or treatment." and throughout the trial she sat beside 1 him t'n the night of November Co, at ll:1e o'clock. Mr l'aiterson called to i his eldest daughter, who was in a room above her mother's, with a stair way leading down into it. that her mother was suik, ai d that he was go Ing for a physician, ami that site should not iro to her mother unless she was railed.

She sprang from bid. and saw through the window the light of the tire shining out on the yard.

The girl, who attracted the greatest admiration and sympathy, because <>f her wonderful poise and In telligence, also rescued her mother, as w i 11 as the four other children. Probably the fads connected with ) the remarkable case will never be 'known.
