The body found to-day wn uncovered In aoft spot about five feet from where four of the bodies were found yesterday. Sheriff Smutxer, who wa an undertaker before he entered politics, ia familiar with the human anatomy, and when his spade struck a human shoulder blade a few feet below the surface he knew that he had struck' another victim of the widow. The body apparently occupied a woodei lox- about nve feet long.. The box was thin and had rottetf away, in h .so'ft ' ground. ' : j . i Skeleton of a Man. j Slowly and carefully the sheriff and his assistant removed the earth from around the fleshless bones, and the skeleton of a man wa txpored. It was lying: face downward and had apparently been care lessly dumped Into the box, then covered. Among the debris that covered the body was a little' tin stove, the plaything- of baby, perhaps of one of the Gunness children who ' died In last week's Are. After freeing the body SherlfT Smutxer covered it to await the arrival of Coroner Mack, who was to view the skeleton this afternoon. It will be placed in the shed nearby, where the rest of the bodies are. Detached bones were also found today among a pile of stones. It was reported that .two more bodies had been unearthed, but this rumor " proved to be untrue. Indicates-Two Victim. The finding of the man's body to-day may prove conclusively that two men who vinited the Gunness home about the same time a year ago are the victims. One. of thorn was a young man, a stranger, who was known as . the . sweet Ueart of Jennie 0!on nnd was to have married her, but he disappeared. The other may be a m'.d- C!e-a?ed Swede fron a town near Minne- a polls and who answered one of Mrs. Ounnejs's adv 1 1 tlsernen ts. lie came here and spent enteral days, durinsr which time he had a draft for $1,000 honored on a Minneapolis bonk. The money went to Mrs. Gunness. SherLT Smutxer obtained tiu niife of the man from Cashier J. W.

Developments to Date In the Murder Mystery -Private Graveyard. . ry ITrom a fitaff Correnpondent.J T LAPORTE., Ind... May 6. The horror of the Gunners home tragedy ' increases - almost .with each spadeful of earth that' is lifted in the private graveyard of ' the "murder farm.": ' . . If Is now believed the total number of victims of Jealousy . and the lust for gold will number at least , twelve. When the home' of ; Mrs. ' Bella' Gunness, near 'this city", was "burned on Tuesday of last week, the woman and .her three children perished.' At least it is supposed the woman was burned, though many people think another body was' substituted.' Tester day and to-day six . bodies . have been found1 buried . in the yard, and .'detached . bone indicate, there were , other . murders. . : Facts In the; Case. . Invektlgatlon to-day revealed these facts In the case: "."' ' ' That .Mrs. Gunness married twice, both her husbands, Philip Gunness and' Max Sorenson. having died mysteriously. She collected $12,000' life Insurance. That Ray Lamphere, -whom she former ly employed. -was Infatuated with : her. was discharged, and afterward - axrested on charge of insanity on her complaint. That . Andrew Hegeleln. an ; Aberdeen (S. D.) stockman, suddenly, appeared at the Gunness home and then disappeared. That the Gunness home was burned on April 27. and that Ray Lamphere was arrested the next day on a charge of murder. . . That' six bodies were dug 'up on the Gunness place, and that one of them was He'gelein's. '. A ? . .. ! . All Had Been Murdered. An autopsy on the bodies. of (two men. one girl and two children unearthed. yes terday from three "soft spots" on the farm! was held at midnight. All had been murdered.- Those bodies that were' not dismembered" were "foUnd to' have small holes in the skulL; '.-;'' :y .' X Following the 'midnight autopsy Sheriff Smutzer, Coroned ' Mack and ' the news paper men to-day began an examination of the Gunness 'house of mystery," and discovered three ."- new . sunken graves similar in every way to' those'from which the five" bodies were, dug yesterday. At daylight .Sheriff Smutzer set men to, work digging into these spots, lie said he would not be .surprised to And half 's dozen additional bodies. . Trunks Shipped from Chicago. The sheriff also notified the ; Chicago police to be on the lookout for a gang In that city believed to be in the whole sale murder business for purposes of collecting' Insurance. The ganc is believed to have disposed of part of the bodies In Laporte. On Satur day, ' April Zo, two daya. before her noma. was burned. Mrs. Gunness received by express from Chicago four large trunks. What their contents were has not been learntd. Sheriff Smutser is conudent, however, that they contained bodies of murdered people shipped here from Chi cago. . This leads the authorities to sispect that Mrs. Gunness conducted a "murder fence" to dispose of bodies of prsons murdered in Chicago for their, life ln- ;rance. ' May be on Way to Norway. The belief Is growing in Laporte. that Mrs. Gunness was not burned to death in the nher home, but that the body supposed Yo be hers Is really that of another woman. The basis for this belief U Vint the hei I of the body suppose! to be Mrs. GunncM'i is missing.

Sir Jarnes WUIcock's British fire at the west entrance to Khyber pass, according to' an official report from Peshawar, India. The native Indian troops in the English service showed the greatest gallantry, the report says, charging desperately up the precipitous slope upon which the Afghans clung, cutting them down hand to hand and finally dislodging the entire force above the Michnikandach blockhouse, around which the fiercest fighting centered. The Afghans resisted furiously,' but the natives paid no attention to the volleys with which they swept the slope. Reinforcements from , the rear Joined the Afghan Una as it was breaking, however, and for a time there seemed danger that the Sepoys would be driven nacK ward down the.- slope. Reinforced by Fusileers. Strengthened by the Munster .fusileers. at the very crisis of the fight, the British force finally began to forge ahead alow- A MOLLYCODDLE ROOSTEH.

The startling revelations of the day have awakened Laporte people to a recollection of some of the strange occurrences at the Gunness home during the last year. Last summer Mrs. Gunness reported 'to '. Chief of Police Cochran that a child had been murdered to the woods back of her house by a man : and woman who . had 7 driven past her home. ' 8howed Him an Empty Hole. .

Jennie " Olson, an 'adopted daughter, disappeared mysteriously. ' Andrew. Helgeiein's -Disappearance. ' These facts were not recalled till yes terday,' when John Helgeleln arrived from Mansfield, S. DV to Investigate the disap pearance of his brother, Andrew Helge leln, a. wealthy, bachelor, who left Aber deen. S. D., on January I to come to Ijl porte. John Helgeleln knew that his brother had been corresponding with. Mrs. Bella Gunness, of Laporte, having be come acquainted with her through a mat rimonial agency, and that he went to Laporte for the purpose of meeting her. nd, if conditions were satisfactory. marrying her. After Helgeleln left Aberdeen 'nothing was heard from him, and this caused un easiness in the minds of relatives, par ticularly since he had drawn 13.000 from an Aberdeen bank after his arrival in Laporte. John Helgeleln wrote Mrs. Gunness regarding his brother and received a reply from her to the effect that he had gone to Norway on a pleasure trip from here. This story did not satisfy Helgeleln entirely, but he began no Investigation until he tead In the papers, of the burning of the .house andfthe death of Mrs. Gunness anad her three childre.n.
