FOUND DEAD IN MRS. CAR
The Fate of Young mrs. Smith of
Baldwins as Explained by
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
The feeling against Mrs. Carman is
bitter in Freeport and Baldwins, and
threats have been made to burn down her
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.
