I tt*bft4r« i To Hid© Her Crime four of Them Were Killed—The Deed Attributed to ttt* Dead Husbart. AUSTIN, Pa., July 23.—A startling story comes from one of the lumber camps at Kettle creek, this county. In April, 1889, the people of all this region were horrified by the news that Frank Hancock, a lumberman living at Blue Run, had murdered four of his children and committed suicide by hanging him self in his house. The news was made known by -Hancock's wife, who had been absent from home on the night of the tragedy. Her story was that she returned home and found the four chil dren lying dead, some in the house and some in the yard. They bad been stabbed and frightfully mutilated with a big butcher knife. The eldest child was 11 years old. A fifth child, a babe, was asleep and uninjured at the side of one of its murdered sisters. A note, apparently in the handwriting of her husband, was found in which he con fessed the terrible crime, giving his reason—his desire to rid Sis wife of himself and the children because of her conduct. A report now comes from the camps at Kettle creek to the effect that Mrs. Hancock had died, and before the end came confessed that she and two men, whom she named, had planned to kill the husband while the children slept.

Then, in the midst of the bloody scene, the note was written and placed in the dead man's pocket. WILL BE NO FIGHT. IIall-FIts*im»a.»ns Contest at Ik PanI le-lnred Off.
