"I know what the Coroner says about that," said John Dormnn. "But let me tell you something, too. The only thing we did was to wash up a little of the blood before we had received a telephone message from the Coroner not to disturb the body and then we only did that when Undertaker Frankenfleld told us that there could be no wrong In doing so. He will bear me out In this." "What about the burning of the clothes?" Mr. Dormnn was asked. "Well, when the Coroner ordered me to V So-gay; 1 s- keep them, I gathered them all up and wrapped them In the apron Annie had on at the time of her death. Friday I was not at home. That day a neighbor came over, and, as tbo blood was smelling very much, asked my wife why the clothe were not burned, and they burned them, not knowing that the Coroner had ordered them to be saved. When I came back I was astonished, but could do nothing."
