Berden Killed Her Father With, 8ay
the Attorney for the DeTeiue
f Ltiile Held fbr Flnnl Trial.
'., Pall BiVEn, Mass.,' Sept 2. Court
, came In at lO&O o'clock Thursday raern-
.ing, and, 5 few minutes after Llzzte Bor Ber
den entered the room. Daring the half
hour preceding the entrance of the
, court .Mrs. Churchill, Mra Dr. Bowen,
Miss Helmes and another lady enjoyed
. themselves apparently very much, and
laughter was frequent
MrJcnnlngs opened for the defense,
lie said;
"The theory of the government seems
te have been that the crime" was com
mitted by Inmates of the house; all
thelr'werh seems te have been directed
by that one idea. It is claimed that no
body could get out of the house with
out being secn because there were per-
. sons all around.
'"The state knows the house has been
broken into in the daytime within two
years, and the barn broken into within
two months, and the facta are net dis
puted. Ve show something the police
ought te have discovered, the stranger
within the gate; as told by Mrs. Manley.
"They have spent night and( day fol
lowing up clews te convict Llzjle Bor Ber
den, but knew nothing about Mra Man
ley and the man she saw. Why? Be
cause they arc net looking for anybody
outside. The extraordinary thing is
that the police can net find the man
Dr. Handy saw, but' they can find the
nxe or axes Lizzie Berden killed her
father with."
District Attorney Knowlten made the
"argument for the government lie said,
in part: "All the heuse was clear but
of Lizzie and her step-mother, and
when' Mr. Berden was down town, and
when Merso was away, and when Brid
get was at work in the yard then the
deed was denq in that upper room, and
, wh.cn $. Berden was let In by Rrldget,
Lizzie and' Abble Borden were alone in
the guest cliember one dead, the oth eth
er alive; and when Lizzie was at the
head- of the stairs, when Bridget
was at the deer, she was whero a worn-
-an was se killed that when she fell,
with her mass of flesh, te the ileer,
she bruised her face and made such a
noise jt must have been heard. Then
she takes out her things and begins te
iron. Bridget went up stairs, leaving
Lizzie ironing, at three minutes te 11,
nearer te her father than I am te your
honor. In five minutes her father was
dead. She could net have been down
1 stairs, because she would have heard
the noise net up stairs, because she
was ironing. It is new' mere dlfilcult
than it was te imagine the improbabil
ity of the story she told about that
barn. Where the man, whom Lizzie
thinks did the deed, was all this time,
we don't knew."
Speaking of the statement by Lizzle
that she had gene te the barn te get
sinkers: be said:
"And she stayed in that barn twenty
' minutes, where no woman would have
stayed five minutes. I gave her allthe
chance in the world, and asked her te
account for that time, and she said
he went up there and ate pears
there of all places In the world and
'did net feel well and could net cat any
breakfast' In the hottest part of
the day, te the hottest place en the
? remises she had geno te get sinkers,
have seen all sorts of alibis, but this Is
'the" most labored one I ever saw or
heard of.
"The demeanor of the defendant is
remarkable. We have never yet found
the wrap that covered Lizzle Berden
nnd took the bleed from these bodies.
We," have net yet found the hatchet
which dkl the work. This thinir was
conceived In the head of a coel-hondod"
deliberate woman."
Judge Blalsdell said: "Sympathy
should be laid aside and duty, stern
duty, requires upon this evidence but
one thing te be done. I find that she is
probably guilty."

ty jail for trial at the November term.

That fear of cholera kills mero people
than cholera Itself was Illustrated by a
story told by nn old Gcrmnn citizen te a
Commercial Gazette reporter a few days
Many years age, while the cholera was
rnging in parts of Germany and extend
ing daily its baneful Infiuence. an old
doctor, taking an evening stroll outside
the gates of his town, saw coming to
wards him n horrible object. Its form
and shape was human, but Its aspect was
a mass of corruption.
"Who nre you?" snid the doctor.
"I nm the cholera."
"Where arc you going?"
"I am going te that town."
The doctor, terrified, pleaded aud
bcgired for the monster te change its
route, but te no purpose. Its read led
through the town, and into the town it
must go. But te compromise with the
geed old doctor the cholera premised net
te kill mero than five people in the town.
Next morning the physician was called
te see a patient, whom he found te have
the cholera. The cases multiplied heutly
and consternation sprend among the peo
ple of the city, and nil these who could
get away did se. There were net five,
but there were 5,000 deaths in the town.
After the cholera had subsided the doc
tor, in his walks, again met the cholera
specter, and upbraided it for net having
kept its word with him. Said the
"I swear I have kent mv nrernise I
did net kill mere than five of your fellow
citizens. The ethers died of fear."

The Statu Heard of Health Issues an Ad
dress en the Subject.
The State Heard of Health of Kentucky,
through the President, Dr. Pinckney
Thompson, aud Secrctnry Dr. J. N. Mc Mc
Cerranck. has issued an address te the
health efllcinls and the people of Ken
tucky iu regard te the cholera.
The experience with former epidemics
of cholera has demonstrated the fact that
there are three essential factors necessary
te its prevalence as an epidemic in this
country First, the centagium or specific
germs of the disease, transported mere or
less directly from their euly place of ori
gin, in India. Second, human beings af
flicted with the disease in some of its
stages, or clothing or merchandise in
fected by such persons, te carry these
germs from place te place. Third, an in
habited town or place, properly prepared
by the neglect of health requirements for
the receptien of these germs.
In considering hew te prevent the
spread of the disease the circular says
that cholera is net contagious, in the or
dinary sense of the term. The infective
germ is contained chiefiy In the dis
charges from the stomach and bowels of
the patient, nnd en his clothing soiled
thereby. It has.becu demonstrated that
these discharges are net capable of re
producing the disease when fresh, but
after n few hours' decomposition, csne-
cinlly In the presence pf dampness and
filth, beceme highly infective. The
germs may enter the system from the
ellluvia arising from such places, mero
frequently in infected water, aud some
times in solid feed. After Its introduc
tion in a country the disease is conveyed
from place te place by these se slightly
affected as te be able te travel, or by
clothing or ether articles which have been
in contact with the cholera-sick.
As te preparing for the disease, exper
ience has shown that cleanliness is the
best protection against it. Although the
germs of the disease are scattered broad
cast during every epidemic, they cease te
be reproduced beyond the boundary lines
which separate the cleaned premises from
the filth. The disease can be often im
ported into healthy localities, but no ex
tended series of cases are produced. It
should be borne in mind that measures
of cleanliness, taken beforehand, are of
flTr mere Importance thnn the removal of
filth nftcr the disease has made its appear
ance. The beard, therefore, recommends
thnt all local beards of health, health
officers and the people begin nt once the
work of putting towns, cities and homes
in the best possible condition.
Accumulations of animal and vegetable
matters in the streets, alleys and yards,
and all privy vaults, cess-peels, "sinks,
drains, cellars and all ether places sus
pected of being dangerous te health,
should receive immediate attention.
Tenement houses nnd nil places thickly
settled by negrees and the lower classes
of whites should be rigidly inspected and
put in the best possible sanitary condi
tion, and the inspection should be fre
quently repeated. As the water supply
is the most prolific medium for the sprend
of cholera, all public wells and springs
Should be carefully looked after by
the health authorities, especially in le
calities where imperfect sewcrage and
drainage render such sources of supply
liable te contamination. Private wells
and springs should be guarded against
pollution by promptly and properly tak
ing care of all the waste matters of the
household. Aftnr the health authorities
have done Hheir duty, much remains
which can be done by the individual or
household Pure water.goed ventilation,
healthful feed, neatness of premises and
person, temperate habits, nnd everything
that is conducive te geed health furnish
the best means of protection against the
dread disease
