VICTIM. WOHJ) TORE MRfl SAWYER Kdltor The Htar: As one who has read the trial of Mrs. Madge Sawyer for the killing of her husband on the 10th of May, 1820, I do not under stand how a Jury could find her, or any woman that had been treated as she had, of being guilty of murder. It seems to me, from the testimony itlven, that she had been mistreated by her husband right from the start. It seems as tho our fair se*. even U they get where they have a chance to do Justice, will hand a bad deal to their sex. No man who thinks anything of his wife will treat her |as she had been treated. Even his I partners in business tetslfled against him. If he had been a pure man, he never would have needed fl> carry a gun to his place of business. I am a laboring man and have lived a few years over the SOmark. and have never had use for a gun in my Ufa. Ho, turn her loose, Mr. Juryman— give her free air. A SYMPATHIZER.
