The Fate of Young mrs. Smith of Baldwins as Explained by Physicians. FREEPORT, April 26.-Dr. Geooge H. Hammond, of this place, received a call from Mrs. Margaret Carman, who lives in an old-fashioned shingle-sided hut in a swamp on the outskirts of Bald wins, at 5 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. When the Doctor reached the hut he found the dead body of a young and handsome woman stretched upon a dirty and dilapidated bed. Mrs. Carman said that the young woman was Mrs. Sydney S. Smith, and that she had come to the hut to make a social call, and while talking was seized with convul sioas and fell on the floor. The Doctor notified Coroner Cronin, who ordered an investigation. Constable Wright was or tiered to arrest Mrs. Carman in case she attempted to leave her home. Drs. 11am mond and D; nto.m im:0: a p'nt-:,rtem examination of the body yes.erd;:y. "When I discovered the body of Mrs. Smith in the hovel," he said, my tir-t thought was that her death was attributa ble to Mrs. Carman Mrs. Smith went from her grandfatherL's residenvce ill Qecan ville, where she llvod with her young hus band, on Tuesday afternoon.- She walked through a chilling rain storm over muddy roads all the way to Mrs. Carman's, a dis tance of nearly three miles. When, in response to Mrs. Carman's summons, I arrived at the hut, I found that the young woman had been dead nearly an hour. Dr. Denton and myself held the autopsy yesterday, and found the cause of death plainly apparent. What Mrs. Carman said about her dying in convulsions was true, but the convulsions were brought on by violence with instruments. The evi dence against Mrs. Carman is strong. A woman told me to-day that Mrs, Carman, knowing the penalty of such practices as she has committed, kept her instruments concealed in the woods near her hut. Dr. Denton and myself have suspected Mrs. Carman for years." After the autopsy the body of Mrs. Smith was taken to Baldwins. The fu neral occurred this morning from the First Methodist Church, of which she was a member. The church was crowded. The body was interred at Rockville Centre Cemetery. Mrs. Smith's maiden name was Ella Morse. She was only 18 years of age, and had been married two years. She was well known in Baldwins and Ocean ville. The coroner's inquest will be held on Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock. A reporter went to the hut of Mrs. Car man to-night. It is in an isolated, swampy spet, about two miles from this place. He rapped at the door repeatedly, and peer ing through a dirt-stained window, he saw, by means of the dim light of a dirty lamp on a corner bracket, a dingy, carpet less room, with a few pieces of rickety fur niture. Three ragged little boys appeared from a strip of woods and approached the hut. One of them shouted, "What do you want there?" The reporter informed the boy that he wanted to see Mrs. Carman. "Mum's out," sa;d the boy. "She's gone to Hempstead to see dad. Dad ped dles tish. She won't be back till 'leven o'clock." The feeling against Mrs. Carman is bitter in Freeport and Baldwins, and threats have been made to burn down her hut. Kate Field and Her Banjo. Miss Kate Fiel' since the wreck of the Cooperative Dress A ;sociation, is disgust ed with civilization, and well she may be, writes a correspondent from New York. There are some people who are inclined to shrug their shoulders at her connection with this unfortunate concern, and to say it was merely gotten up by her for self glorification and personal benefit. Of course, it is only persons who do not know Miss Field who have made such un kind remarks. She believed in co-opera tion, and still believes that, had the asso ciation been properly managed, it would have been a profitable experiment. She is herself probably the heaviest loser by its failure, as she from time to time ad vanced the concern $17,000 from her own hard earnings. Of this she may get back 60 per cent, or she may not. No one ever worked harder than did Miss Field in the interests of the association, and its failure was as much a mortification as grief to her. I met Miss Field the other day and asked her what her plans for the future were. She said she was going West to grow up with the country, which I thought not a bad idea. For some ten or fifteen minutes she descanted eloquently on the attractions to be found beyond the Mississippi, and mentioned Denver par ticularly as her spot. What she is going to do when she gets to Denver I don't know, but she said that there were a great many bright and intelligent people out there, particularly among the newspaper men, and that the climate was unsurpassed so she was going to take Horace Greeley's advice and go West in May. Having re marked that she believed it very injurious to the eyes to read in the cars, I asked how she was going to amuse herself du ring this somewhat protracted trip, and she replied, "By learning to play the banjo." She is going to tike a finel nstru ment with her, upon whose strings she will pick ont plantat;on melodies as the train whirls over the Iron road. I think not only Miss Field but the passengers in the car will find amusement in this banjo playinig. They might organize an ama teur minstrel troupe for the trip. Probate Notice.
