write to express uiy gratltuUo for themlrac
lous benefit received from Dr. Miles' Iloart
Cure. I suffered for years, as result of army
life, from sciatica which affected my heart
in the worst form, my limbs swelled from
the ankles up. I bloated until I was unable
to button my clothing; had sharp pains
about the heart, smothering spells and
shortness of breath. Tor three months I
was unable to lie down, and all the sleep I
got was in an arm chair. I was treated by
the best doctors but gradually grow worse.
About a year ago I commenced taking Dr.
Miles' New Iloart Cure and it saved my Uio
as If by a miracle.

Our Own iv.iple.
Shepherd, Mich.. Aug. 30. The utter
unreliability of the alleged ante-mortem
statement of Cashier Struble was
demonstrated when the authorities re
vealed the names of the two men. In
addition to Dennis Ryan already named,
who Struble, It Is claimed, declared a
few moments before his death were fell
assailants. These men were William N.
Brown of Ann Arbor, the princloal
stockholder in the People's bank of
Mount Pleasant, and Judge Elijah J.
Wheaton of Mount Pleasant.
It has boon proved beyond question
that neither of these men was within
200 miles of Shepherd at the time of the
murder. Wheaton was with a flshlni:
party in Manistee county and had been
there for a week. Brown had been con
fined to his home by illness for some
time. Both have established an Impreg
nable alibi, although neither knew until
late Thursday that he was mentioned
by Struble. Wheaton was formerly
Judge of the probate court and 1b one of
the most respected citizens of the coun
ty, while B'jvn, who Is a son-in-law
of the late Lieutenant Governor Dwlght
May, has a state wide reputation. This
turn of AffaUTf has tended to Intensify
the mygl.er :tnd the most careful ob
servers believe that It may be several
weeks before the matter Is cleared up.
Detroit; Aug. 31. A special to The
Free Press from Shepherd reports a
new clue to the murderers of Cashier
Elmer Struble, of the Farmers' bank.
George Hall, a farm laborer four miles
northwest of Shepherd, last night made
a statement that at 3:15 o'clock on the
morning of the murder he saw a double
rig driven by on the way to Shepherd.
It was then too dark for him to see the
occupants, but two hours later he was
startled by the return of the rig, driving
full speed in the direction of Mount
Two men were on the front seat with
their hats pulled far down over their
eyes. Of these men Hall gives a mod
erately close description, and his ac
count is corroborated by other farmers
along the Mount Pleasant road. The
time given by Hall as to the passage
and return of the rig would have given
opportunity for the murder to be com
mitted, as the theory is that it occurred
somewhere about 4:30 in the morning.
The officers are working the clue closely
and expect good results.

DETAILS TJF AN W?UL TRAGEDV.
Murder Iy Thrlr KM Mother of Ivy and
OwasRo, Mich., Aug. 31. As the result
of an Insane mother's homicidal mania
two young daughterr lie dead at Flint.
The act was committed on Saturday
morning between the hours of 9 o'clock
and noon. The woman Is Mrs. Mav
Hutchinson, wife of Editor W. Z.
Hutchinson, of the Beekeepers' Re
view. Fern, the 5-year-old 'hlld, died
from the effects of chloroform adminis
tered by the mother, and Ivy. their only
ether child, 17 years old, was fatally
shot by the maniac. The story told by
the bereaved husband and father shows
that early on Saturday morning Mrs.
Hutchinson expressed a desire to take
her children, whom she had alwavs
dearly loved, for a buggy ride. Accord
ingly the huBband, noting nothing
wrong in his wife's demeanor, ordered
the rig. At first she desired both chil
dren to get in, but afterwards changed
her mind and said she would take Fern
When beyond the city limits, in a
lonely spot, the mother stopped the
horse and saturating several handker
chiefs with choloform, according to her
own statement, kissed little Fern and
applied the deadly drug to the child's
nostrils. The little one struggled feebly
at first and Bald plaintively: "Mamma,
mamma, what have I done?" but soon
waa quiet in death. Hiding the body
under a clump of bushes, the woman
drove back home and said, pleasantly:
"Well, Ivy, It's your turn now." The
girl was alarmed at the absence of her
ulster, but the mother explained it by
saying that Fern was playing with a
neighbor's children. Driving to about
the same spot where the other murder
was committed Mrs. Hutchinson in
formed her daughter that Fern wal
dead and that she, too, must die.
The girl screamed In fright and tried
to leap from the buggy, but only reached
the ground after two bullets had been
fired into her body by the crazed wom
an. The first tore through the mouth
Into her neck and the second passed
1 completely through her body from left
to right. While struggling along, trying
in vain to escape, she was struck by a
third bullet, which ranted downward
through her abdomen. A farmer named
White then appeared upon the scene,
wrested the revolver from Mrs Hutch
InBon, and with all speed conveyed the
murderess and her dying daughter back
The girl died Sunday. Mrs. Hutchin
son, who is confined at the Central
Police station, talks wildly of her crime.
She was sent to the Pontlac asylum
about two years ago, but seemed to get
better and was discharged a few months
ago as cured. Ivy was also at one time
confined In a private asylum for insani
ty. Hutchinson, who Is very well
known and highly respected here, Is
crazed with grief.

Chicago, Sept. 1. Mrs. Agatha Toseh,
to whom Adolph Luetgert was woi-t to
confide his business and marital troubles,
took the stand for the prosecution Tues
day, wh'.'n the famous murder caso was
resumed, and gave damaging testimony
against the prisoner. According to her
evidence the day after Mrs. Luetgert
disappeared Mrs. Tosch had a long con
versation with the sausage maker, who,
she asserted, was pale and laboring un
der excitement he vainly endeavored to
suppress. In the course of their talk
she boldly told him she believed him
guilty of making away with his wife,
and that he thereupon manifested much
excitement and begged her to help him,
as he was ir great trouble.
Mrs. Tosch dilated on Luetgert'e dis
turbed condition of mind as much as
the rules of evidence would permit and
finally swore that the man, in the ex
tremity of his distress, declared he was
tempted to shoot himself and escape
the trouble that hung over his head.
Before nhe left the stand Mrs Tosch
also testified to the hatred felt by Luet
gert for his wife and his significant
threats to crush her.

Philip Gilbert Huinertou heartily dis
approved marriage made in tho French
manner. "And yet one morning," he
says in his autobiography, "when I was
writing on my desk (a tull oak desk
that I used to stand up to) the idea sud
denly came, as if somebody had uttered
these words in my ear: 'Why should
you remain lonely all your days? Eu
genie Gindriez would be an affeotionuto
and faithful wife to you. She is not
rich, but you would work aud fight
your way. 1
"X pushed aside tho sheet of manu
script and took a sheet of notepaper in
stead. I then wrote in French u letter
to a lady in Paris who knew the Gin
driez family and asked her if Mile.
Eageniu was engaged to bo married.
The answer camo that she was well and
that there had been no engagement.
Soon afterward I was in Paris.
"I called on M. Gindriez, but his
daughter wus not at home. I asked per
mission to call in the evening, aud sho
yr&B out again. This was repeated two
ur three times, and my wifo told mo
afterward that theso absences were not
accidental. At last wo mot, and there
was nothing in her manner but a cer

suoh reserve, but greeted me gayly and
frankly. After a few days I Was accept

"From a worldly point of view this
engagement was what is called in
French une folie, on my part, and hard
ly less so on the part of the young lady.
We had, however, a kind of inward as
surance that in spite of tho difference
of nationality and other differences we
were, in truth, nearer to each other than
most people who contract matrimonial

Dr. Sophio Lepper, the English food
specialist, says in speaking of the pecul
iarities of various foods that blanched
almonds give tho higher nerve or brain
and musclo food, no heat or waste.
Walnuts give nerve or brain food; mus
cle, heat and wtiste. Pino kernels givo
heat and stay. They serve as a substi
tute for bread. Green water grapes are
blood purifying, but of little food value.
Bine grapes aro feeding and blood puri
fying, too rich for those who suffer
from the liver; tomatoes, higher nerve
or brain food and waste ; no heat. They
are thinning and stimulating. Juicy
fruits give moroor less tho higher nerve
or braiu, and some few, musclo food
and waste; no heat. Apples supply tho
higher nerve and muscle food, but do
not give stay. Prunes afford the highest
nerve or brain food, supply heat and
waste but are not muscle feeding.
Cruel, but Necessary.
The Eskimos dread the winter and
take early precautions to provide against
famine. As the season approaches tho
great herds of reindeer migrate south
ward, and the walrus or the seal are
all that remain for food.
When an in wind is blowing, the wal
rus is easily found on the onter edge of
the ice packs. When it is blowing off
the shore, however, the ice packs sail
out to sea with tho walruses on them.
The natives then class their numbers in
a list from the strongest to the weakest.
Tho food that is in store is divided up,
tbo weakest having the smallest quan
tity, tho strongest the largest. Thus the
mightiest hunters have strength to pro
vide for the others.
It is a cruel system, but, uevertholess,
a ueoessary ouo. If all wero weak, all
would dio; if some are strong, they will
savo many of the weak.
