(UP) — A modern pniKlora's box tragedy was related today \vilh the confession of James W. Bowden that he set an electrically-w'Ircd suitcase to i;et rid of a rival for his wife's af- feclion.s. and killed her instead. Bowden, who was charged with murder, admitted rij;j;iny the .suit- ease lo blow up when opened, with the intention of sending it lo the suspected of "nmniny around" with his wife. Fern. Buwden, 47, a former Aleutian defense worker, said he hod wired the ban but then couldn't Slunk of :iny way to {ret it to the "othfr mail." He "let it lay" for a few days, he said, then his wife Hied r,ui( for divorce and "there was no motive after that, and T didn't know what to do with it." Bowden lefl home Iwo weeks a^o nflcr his wife filed suit for divorce on charges of cruelly, cautioning 'his wife, and Iheir Iwo children, Shirley. 13. and Doris, 17. to "let (hat hat; alone." ! BowdL'll told police he had racked his btain for .some way of [jelling the fiber .suitcase out of the house and disposing of it. "I was afraid of it, and it just for ' tlv. 1 sal there," he said. Bowden sketched a diagram police, showing how he nindc "bonhy Irap" from six sticl-.s of dynamite, d^tonalors and a conlractor in tile basement of their home. "It would f!o off when the lid was lifted, but it was padlocked wllli a combination lock," iie explained. In the box, besides the dynamite, was a diary chronicling Mrs. Bowden's alleged wronij-doin:;;. Mrs. Bowden evidently l:ne\v the combination of the lock, however, and when her daughters were away, went into the basement to set- what Ihe bai; contained.

She was swollen with stomach gas, which always sjol worse when she went to bed, and the gas would rise up in her throat after she lay down and would nearly choke her. She couldn't lie fnt. Hnd to prop herself up on pillows. Recently this lady got INN KR-AID and now says gas is gone, stomach feels fine, bowels are regular and she can go to bed and sleep soundly. INNER-AID contains 12 Great Herbs; they cleanse bowels, clear gas from stomach, act on sluggish liver and kidneys- Miserable people soon feel different all over. So don't go on suffering!
