Tragedy npon a Tragedy. From the Keokuk Gate City. Wo noticed a few. days ago the mur dnr of a man named Juicier, near Jjlnei yille, ilo. That was sufficiently atrocious atrocious is itself. A correspondent of The Ottumwa Courier adds an additional phase of the trsgedy. It appears that; Mrs. Klider ' wife of the brother of the murdered man,' had, on account of some misunderstanding wun ine murdered murdered man, refuted to let him have board longer with them, as be had ror merly done. Hence he had lived alone in the house where he wti murdered. When the murder was discovered and the . news made known to his friends, Mrs. Klider, deeming herself the cause ol bis deem, oy ner unsister - ly conduct toward him, was a few days since missing,' and on starch being made was found dead at a pool of water on which was a coat of ice some ten inches in thickness. Her body waa found lying on the ice, with her head ip the water, which was some ten feet in depth. The integument of her forehead was much bruised, and it is supposed that in tbe madness, and grief, and agony ol mind, abe struck: her bead upon ine lee until it yielded to its influence, and by immersing her head in the hole thus wade, and stoutly holding it there, strangulation ensued launching her soal into eternity.
