J. M. SIIKHIKW. Observer.
Tipton. Iowa, has a sensation, in the
arrest of Mrs. Laura Miller, under cir
cumstances recalling her previous ar
rest on the charge of throwing lye in
the face of Miss Gail Hamilton, an at
tractive young lady of that place.
Monday evening a number of Tipton
people noticed a heavily veiled woman
alight from the 8 o'clock Northwestern
train. She was noticed later crossing
lots and lurking in unfrequented places
and acting in a manner that naturally
aroused comment and suspicions.
Some of her old neighbors thought they
saw in the woman a resemblance of
Mrs. Miller, who moved with her hus
band and family to Independence last
Pound In Cellar.
The result was a search for the wo
man that resulted in her being found
at 3 o'clock in the morning in the eel
larway of the house of Dr. R. S. Ban
dy. She was placed under arrest at
once. The removal of her veil con
firmed the impression that the myster
ious stranger was Mrs. Miller.
When Mrs. Miller was found she had
in her possession e quantity of stuff
which had been removed from the
Bandy refrigerator, which she had
broken into. This included lard, straw
berry Jam, and other victuals. After
her arrest she asked to be allowed to
go to the home of her husband's broth
er, M. H. Miller, a block away.
Iolsom la Satchel.
On the porch of the Miller house,
where unknown to her brother-in-law,
she had spent a large part of the
night, was found her satchel. Investi
gation of its contents showed that it
contained a bottle of strychnine, a bot
tle of wood alcohol, matches and other
things which ladies are not usually ac
customed to carrying about with them.
Miss Campbell was employed in Dr.
Bandy's office at the time that some
woman attempted to ruin her beauty
by throwing lye into her face. That
Mrs. Miller was the woman who threw
the lye was the belief of many in Tip
ton at the time, but she was acquit
ted on trial for the crime. Now that
Mrs. Miller has been found in a situa
tion which convicts her in the public
mind with evil designs on the Bandy
family, Tipton people are wondering
again if the jury was right, and if it
was not a case of "guilty but not
Might Have Poisoned ( .ncli.
There is talk to the effect that if
she had not been interrupted, it was
Mrs. Miller's intention to poison the
food which she had removed from the
Bandy refrigerator, and to return it,
with the probable result of poisoning
Dr. Bandy and members of his family.
Just what part the wood alcohol and
matches were to play in the affair is of
course only a matter of conjecture, but
there is a suggestion of incendiarism
