Special to Ihe Hcfalv.
riivsKKiDE, Oct. 16.—The bloodiest
tragedy that has occurred in this city
for the past 10 years was enacted today.
W. E. Wrialey killed his wife and then
pulled the trigger of • shot gun and
blew off bis own head, shortly before 1
o'clock this afternoon.
For some time Wrieley had suspected
that his wife was not faithful to ber
marriage vows, and last Friday night he
seta watch to catch her. He was re
warded by seeing a man enter the house.
He secured the assistance of a policeman
and went to the bonse. The officer
knocked on the front door and informed
the woman who he was, but she delayed
opening the door. The man attempted
to escape, but was caught. Tbe erring
wife appeared before the police court
next day, pleaded guilty to tbe charge
of keeping a house of ill-fame and was
fined $25, with the understanding that
it would be withheld as long as she be
haved herself. The court excluded all
the spectators from the room, and she
made a statement in which she laid the
blame at tbe door of her hueband.
Wrisley, who was well liked by all
who knew him and was considered an
industrious and faithful husband, broi d
ed over the affair till he became desper
ate. From the way the affair was car
ried out be doubtless planned all the
details and carried them ont to the let
ter. Hie wife, « bom be had not lived
with since September let, had an
nounced that she was going to San
Francisco. Today, about 12:30, Bhe
went up town to get an expressman to
move her trunk to the depot, and from
the manner in which the killing was ac
complished it appears that Wrisley went
to the home where she lived, which is
just in the rear of tbe Park hotel, at the
corner of Market and Eighth streets.
When she returned he struck her over
the head with a castiron window weight
and then cot ber throat with a fonr-inch
dirk knife, almost severing the head
from the trunk. The knife was left
sticking in ber neck.
He rushed from the scene of the crime
to his room in the Park hotel, where he
bad been stopping. The proprietor no
ticed htß hurry, but thoagbt nothing of
it till he heard the discbarge of a gun.
Upon investigation Wrialey waa found
lying on the floor dead.
The proprietor gave the alarm im
mediately. An officer soon arrived at
the hotel, and, going to the cottage in
the rear, found the body of Mrs. Wris
ley lying on the bed, partly disrobed,
with her throat cut. The blood had
dripped through the bedding and
formed a pool on the floor, and her
breast, hands and arms were covered
with clotted gore.
Returning to the room in which Wria
ley lay, a more sickening eight present
ed itself. The whole right side of his
head was blown away. Tbe weapon, a
single barreled, breech-loading shotgun,
lay by his side. The body lay in a pool
of blood, while the aides of tbe room
and ceiling were spattered with blood
and brains. The bed, dresaer, window,
stand and in fact everything in the
room was covered with brains and small
pieceß of the skull.
In a bank book fonnd on tbe suicide's
person a communication was found
written on tbe fly leaf, in which he said
he bad become tbe object of too much
notoriety, and that he was disgraced
and had concluded to end his life. He
said his wife had informed him that she
loved another, and that h) could not
live and see ber enjoy the affections of
another man. He alto wrote a letter to
his fraternal friends, the I. O. O. F.
lodge of this city, in which he asked
them to bury his body with all the rev
erence due him, and thanked them for
all the kindness they had bestowed upon
him. He bid bis old friend, Charlie
Wood, goodbye in a very affectionate
manner on the same Bbeet of paper,
and aIBO asked the undertaker to see
that he was buried in hie canton uni
The following was doubtless written
"She Bays she loves another; that
settlea it; if I can't have her.no one
else shall. Here goes. Everything iB
ready. Today we will die! Good-bye,
everybody! W. E. W.
"P. B.—l do not wish to live longer,
if we cannot live together in this world,
perhaps we may in tbe next. I love her
still, call me what they will."
In tbe same book, which is a First
National bank book of Los Angeles, is a
deposit for $400, recorded October sth.
The city marahal has telegraphed
word of the affair to Mrs. Merrill, Mra.
Wrißley'e mother, at San Francisco.
Mr. Wrißley requested in a letter
found on the stand that Mr. O. L. Leach
of Northfield Farm, Mace., should be
notified of his death.
The bodies were removed to George
F. Ward's undertaking establishment,
where an inquest was held. Tbe jury
returned a verdict of murder in the case

hußbnnd. It decided that Wrisley had

A Vile l.to In th« I'lilory.
Weeks bcforo tho royal wedding it
was openly whispered that the Duke of
York, a. gallant sailor fiud a gentleman,
had made a false step, had been forgets
ful of his princely and knightly duties
und obligations, and had, in fact, boen
secretly married and involved himself in
a mesalliance, repugnant to hiaftenseof
honor and illegal in tho eyes cttho well
known statuto law. That la wis simple.
None of our blood royal can legally con
tract marriage without tho consent of
the reigning sovereign. Morganatic
marriages have been recognized as such,
and such love inapiv: . sanctity as at
taches to these nnious when faithfully
adhered to. The world !;bowb all about
them and sympathizes with them. But
what caid the quidnuncs, tho tattlers,
the irrespou rible, the chattering spar
rows who build under tho eaves of pal
Blankly this, that George of Wales
was married; that iho name of the place
and the name of tiio lady, alleged to be
the daughter of a naval officer of high
degree, were known, and both names
iir. l ;ilaceachanged and fluctuated as the
price of soandal shares rose or fed in the
gossip market. Like ill winds, the ugly
rumor grew apace over the dinner table
and afternoon teapot. Men talked of it
—more sharno to them—women irmr
mured it with giggles and innuendo; the
very "outsiders" got bold of it, and all
the time the story was positively and ab
solutely untrue. Think you for an in
stant thai tiio head of our church would
have married our prince and princess
had he not first satisfied himself, as we
have rrfison to ljhow ho did, that the
silly story was wholly untrue, absolutely
baseless? The question carries its own

A lllff Lobster Pound.
There is a lobster farm, or pound, as it
is called, 13 acres in extent at Southport,
Me. This pound Is the most successful
on the coast, whence 1,000,000 lobsters
are shipped each year. The pound is
formed by building a solid dam across a
tidewater cove. This dam doua uot quite
rise to high water mark, but acioss the
top is placed a fenoe of iron rods, per
mitting a daily change of water and pre
venting the lobsters from escaping. In
tbo poring and fall business is most brisk.
When tho fisherman bring the lobsters
to the pound, the '''fish." as they ara
called, uro hoisted to the dam, measured,
and those which are more than 10,
inches long, the legal limit.are thrown in.
If a lobster is clever, hjs life in the pound
may be long and full of joy. If he is
stupid, he will be fished, out with a drap
seine and packed in a barrel, with a piece
of ice for a pillow, and sent to Boston.
The seine is made of stout twine and is
weighted at tho bottom with a heavy
chain. Along the top is a row of corks,
which sustain the weight of tho roino
while the chain drags on the bottom of
the pound.
A single cast of this seine will bring
up lobsters enough to fill 11 barrels. Tho
chain as it sweeps along the bottom stirs
up the lobsters, which immediately shoot
backward into the slack twine. In tak
ing them out the men wear heavy mit
tens, though even then they are often
nipped. In the pound the lobsters are
fed on salt herring, men rowing about
in skiffs and pitching the herring over
board. This is called "feeding the chick
ens," and it takes about six barrels to
make a light luncheon for the flock.—

The Tat In Ancient Times.
Tho cat was so very highly regarded in
England at ouo time, both as a rat and
mouse catcher, and ns an ornament to
society, that we find the following salu
tary law passed by one of the princes
of Wales:
"If any one steal or kill a Cat that
guards tho Prince's Granery, ho is to
forfoit a milch Ewe, its Flceco and
Lamb. Or, as much Wheat as, when
poured upon tho cat suspended from, its
tail, with the head touching the floor,
would form v heap high enought to cover
tho tip of tho former."
Though the Welsh had a high opinion
of tho cat, the ancient Egyptians had v.
still higher. Theso intelligent und civ
ilized people treated cats with great dis
tinction. It was a crime to kill them,
and when they died they received a pub
lic burial, at which tho people mourned,
having first shaved off their eyebrows as
a token of sorrow. The most prominent
cats were upon death embalmed in drngs
and spices, And cat mummies have been
found side by sido with those of kings.
When Cambyses, the Persian, attacked
the Egyptian city of Pelusis, ho cunning
ly provided his soldiers with cats in
stead of shields. When tho host ad
vanced, the Egyptians retired in confu
sion upon discovering that they would bo
unablo to do daiuuge to their enemy
without seriously imperiling the lives of
vast numbers of cats. And so tho city
was taken easily und without the loss of
blood or of a cat. It cannot lie disputed
that tho ancient Egyptian cats must have
enjoyed lifo very much.—St. Louiß Post-
