Tiie etory of the cause which seems ti have led Daub to perpetrate tLe crime dates back to more than a year nan when Mr. Arnold was cneatcd in ^farming, in Noitb Lebanon township. Dauh was hired as help and while employed by the fat hi r inacie love to the daughter, Annie. The girt learned to love him ami they were rnarrif d on Septembei 12, !S'.i7, by Rev. Father Adam Christ, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic church. The marriage did not prove a happy one nnd several reasons ere given for it. It is said Daub, who was a Protestant, had promised to renounce his faith and become a Catholic, BE the Arnold's were consistent members of St Mary's church. After a time he is said to have rebelled and withdrew his promise and this caused his wife to refuse to live with him. He is said to have been allowed to seebis wife and child only at intervals and he finally placed the matter in the hands of J. Marshall Funck, eiq, who recently brought an action against the father-in law for alienating the wife's affections. Another story is in effect that Daub after the marriage refused to support his wife and that he rejected the offer of his father-in-law to furnish them a house. When Daub subsequently desired to go to house keeping the old gentleman refused to allow his daughter to live with him. Danb, it is said, recently had Kev. 11, J. Welker, pastor of the Tulpehocken Reformed church, baptize the child during tha abfenco of the Arnold family. It seem? the question ES to the faith in which their children were to bs Uueht had been decided at the time of the marripge and although Daub bad agreed to have all baptized in St. Mary's Catholic church, he secured Kev. We'ker and bad the service performed. In justice to Eev. Welker we will here say that he knew nothing of any agreement, i -i f t«r Daub deserted his wife he made many threats against her and her rar^nlf and this coming to the ears Wiiiigru Arnold, one of the sons of the aired couple, who lives on the farm near Daub's home, recently had Alderman Lsndis A. Gerbeiich notify Danb to discontinue making threats or he wouid be placed under bonrs to keep the pecce. This appears to have only ancered Daub the more. When William ArnoM was notified of bis brother-in law's terrible deed he did not go to the home as did .his brothers, Theodore and Holley, who live on farms in the township, and his sister, Mrs. Ambrose Seifert.also a resident of the township, but instead armed himself with a shotcun and went in hiding. He believed Daub would come to his place for his hatred of William was bitter and be awaited the murderer's cornice expecting that he would endeavor to destroy life or propelty. After watching all night and upon hearing of the finding j of Daub's body William hurried le hia to of _ 1,1. ,- i * u u u j ,; ^ - st tne K ather - The beside the dead body of the father j
