at be for no community. " It seems that Daub was an excellent workman, a good farmer and had won the confidence of the Arnold family, who at one time treated him aa kindly aa though he were one of their own. When the subject of marriage wasbroachfd he demanded that Mr. Arnold give him one of the best fields in bis farm. It was an unreasonable request and was so explained explained to him. The fact that Daub 'and the young girl belonged to different religions religions denominations may have caused some clashing at first, hut was satisfactorily satisfactorily dispos d of and apart from the baptism baptism of the child, as we stated Wednesday, Wednesday, was no longer a factor. .After the couple had married, Mr. of Arnold, who' had then contemplated moving to the city, proposed that Daub move on the farm. "When the proposition proposition was made to him, he replied: "I'll give vou an answer some other time.' But he said no more and rather manifested manifested that he was not pleased with the offer. Then Mr. ArnoUS's.son, William, arranged to move on the farm, and aft.r all preparations bad been made Daub became became bitter toward William Arnold. ; Subsequently Mr. Arnold oflered to assist assist Daub in getting a home, BO that he and his wife could go to housekeeping, and said: "I will provide the same outfit outfit for Annie that I did for her sister, Mrs. Seifert." Daub replied: "You don't need to buy anythlnz for her, as I do not intend to live with her, at any rate." Naturally the Arnold family were disturbed over the turn affairs had taken and when it seemed plain to them that Daub did not intend going to housekeeping housekeeping with their daughter they determined determined to take her and the little babe with them when they moved to the city. Mr. Arnold informed Daub to that effect Then he made a demand for the baby, only several months old, but of course they wonld not bear to that. Danb now began to manifest such an ngly disposition disposition that his wife became afraid of him, and her parents felt uneasy at times. He visited them three times after they moved to Maple street and each time in a rude, spiteful manner declared that now he insisted on getting bis wife and child, although be had not made any preparation for sheltering or providing them. Not only when he visited the Arnold family but to neighbors and otheis he spoKe m a revengeful way about them, declaring that he had"devii- ed the old folks for several monthb" and wonld torment them more. On the evening of the murder when Danb visited the Arnold home and demanded demanded his wife and cbi'd, the wife, it will be remembered, replied, when asked asked whether she wonld go with -him, that she would do so it her parents would permit her. It is understood now that she gave such an answer because she was afraid to say no to Daub, 89 much was she in fear o f Him. What followed has been told in these columns- Fear that their daughter would not be cared for and treated properly is the chief if not the only reason why Mr. Arnold objected objected to b er leaving home and living with nim. And the daughter, it seems, was of the same mind, and therefore, unwilling unwilling to leave home, at least until Daub had manifested a different disposition disposition toward her and her family. Both ladies were reported to bo ttill living at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon. Mrs. Arnold continues to grow stronger, and although Mrs. Daub had two sinking spells this morning she recovered and her condition is nncbanged. FUNERALS.
