It was murder. There was every evU dence on the face of the discovery. There was a motive in the open dresa showing the pure white bosom and in the queenly charms of a young girl who was known -by some one known-to her. and who watched all the time, to b alone in the house and with only a bab or two about her. There was every evidence of another' hand in the smoothing down of the dress after death; of a struggle in the manner In which the bullets flew before doing their final and fatal work; , and in tha grip of a man's hand that alone could have putied that rusted old trigger and recocked It five times. Only a man, fired with a fearful pits 5on, recognised by the object of his brutality and threatened with expostir, could have fired those shots and with intent to kill. It was only a man of sufficient height who could have reached for the gun ih the first place and out who knew the habits and customs of tha inmates of the house and knew where the pistol was kept, half hidden as it was beneath the grip. It was terrible fear of exposure by that pure girl approached in her maidenly loneliness that prompted the deed.
