Why did Jennie Benson kill
That is a queaitcwi but one person in
IVune City. Iod., can answer, and he ha#
not a word to any. It is the silence of
an honnraVle man to whom an unhappy
girl told a secret. She loved him He
asked her to be hia wife. She refused, but
acknowledged her affection, and in confi
dence gave him the reason for her nsgn
tive to his proposal. From that on no
thought of mairiage occupied the minds
of William Giatte and Jennie Benson,
but the man remained her honoitM! and
trusted friend to the laet Twice did
she try to commit suicide. The first
time she failed. TWn she wset to
Washington Court House, 0.f sought a
secluded street and shot hsrssJf throaglt

identity established. That the corpse

fellow, who stood straight six foot two.
But there was a sad something in his

forced to camp out, my cot waa next to

But if we liked him, working there
among us day by day, how much more

his true character aad we had not
long to wait before it was revealed
to us.
On a day which 1 will always re
