Wyre the characters of one of
Conan Doyle s Sherlock Holmes do-j
tactive stories to step from (he pages
of fiction into real life, they could
not form a more intensely interest
ing story than that involved in the
trial of Ole Nordalil at Lowistown.for
the murder of Mrs. Bertha Schleu
ter. and her four children. The
story developed in brief is as follow

John Mullinbrook, stopping for'
the night with Andrew Anderson, a
neighbor of Sehleuter, discovered
the Schleuter home on lire, llewith
others immediately repaired to the
scene hut could learn nothing, and
taking for granted that the family
had found shelter with some other
neighbor,they returned. In the mom

14, Ida aged 9. Elizabeth age 6. and
Fred age 4. los( their lives.
Footprints led from the ruins to
the warehouse, which was broken
open. All the coal oil, which was
kept i.i the warehouse, was missing
and the odor from the ruins, beside
two empty cans, showed hut toooon

The foot prints were made hy two
left overshoes, and on searching
Nordalil s place, two left arctics were
found, which exactly fitted the im
print. They further led to a spot
where* a horse had been standing
and the hoof marks compared exact
ly to such an imprint made !*y Nig.

The defense w as no less aide, Messrs.
Beiden and! luntoon officiating. Mr.
Beiden among other things stated
that it ban not been proven that Mrs.
Schleuter had been murdered, and
that if so, that there was nothing to
connect Nordalil with the crime,
lie further strongly brought out the
fact that Nordald's previous behav
ior had always been good.
Judge ( beadle's charge to the
jury was considered fair and if any
