The murdered woman was a daughter -of Mr. and Mrs. Hedges Boaster, poor uneducated country people, whdtlived at the foot of Little Sewell Mountain. Zona Heaster was the third wife, it is stated, and was the third one he had murdered. Sbue was a rare type of brute criminal and had so successfully covered up the evidence of his guilt m former cases as to avoid s picion.- He' was arrested and convicted of the murder of his 'third wife upo the testimony of his mother in law, every detail which was found to corres pond with the facts disclosed Jyy the post mortem. Shue was sentenced to the penitentiary for life and died there: We will state that we know well the mother Of the murdered girl that she is an innocent, tlioioughly credulous old woman, and that we believe as the jury in the lease believed, that she told the truth in regard to her dream pnd presentiments. Now will some one explain' this case scientifically? 5 The mother lived nearly twenty miles from the scene of the murder and could have known of it in no way whatever. How could she have told of it in every detail? Was it accident, telepathy or super natural revelation? We do not 1, now. The following account of the case was given by our Circuit Judge Hon. Joseph M. McWhorter: Shue in Noyexnberr189G, mar. tied Miss Zcona Heaster, -of Meadow Bluff district, in Green-briercouuty, as his third wife, ho being about 33 years of age, and settled at Livesays Mill to work at the blacksmith trade. He and his wife occupied what room they needed in IvQ stor frame building which had been the residence of the-Iate Wm. Livesay. On tle 22nd day of January 1897 as he went to his work he called on a colored family who livted a few yards from his house and asked the mother to let her boy some 12 years of age go I r t 4 r up to his house and dO-6ome chores there and take some eggs to the store for Zona, his wife. About twelvO oclock he left his shop -and went to Ms colored neighbor and asked if the boy bad yet been to his house, and the Old woman said he had not, but it was near dinner time. Shue said he was not going to dinner that day and again requested the boy to be sent up. .In a short time the boy gave the alarm that Mrs. Shue was dead. She was found in the dining room lying stretch, ed out and her. clothes pulled down and apparently had been dead some hours. The doctOr A as sentr for and after making a cursory examination decided that she had died from heart failure as she had been unwell, and "he had been attending her a week of two-. I tr-was-deetded tbat-the -re-- mains should be taken for inter ment to her fathers about fourteen miles distant; The remains a were kept over night at her fathers and buried the following' you have. day. After the burial the friends in talking over -the circumstances connected with her death and burial, and recalling the fact that no one eyer was permitted to view the remains biit in the presence of Shue who always took his place at the head ofn the corpse, and when 6he was placed in the coffin, he had a sheet folded and placed along side of her head and some garment placed on the other side, and her mother stating that her daughter had appeared and talked to her, her parents were not satisfied as to the cause of her death. So after consultation it was decided to exhume the body, which was just one month from the time of its burial. - SOME REMARKABLE EVIDENCE. Here comes the most remarkable part of the evidence introduced by defendants counsel: Mrs. Heaster, pother of the deceased, who seemed a very pi-ou8 ladyj had told all she, knew about her daughters death and burial and defendants conduct on the night of the wake. - Counsel for the defendant said to her:-. Mrs. Heaster did you not have a drean that roused your suspicious and led you to 'as change of life and cramping. No human tongue can describe wh I suffered with the -cramp, 1 dreaded from, onetime to another so m to die. 4 Qur family physician did everything he could for me, but I got no relief. He said If 1 lived to get -through with the other trouble, it would wear away after a time, but I had it six vein s "find could not Walk or exercise in any way without bringing on an attack of the cramp, and 1 would Suffer Untold misery until I would be perfectly exhausted and helpless. I read in one of your little books about your medicine being good for female trouble and change of life, and thought there was no harm in trying it, so 1 did, and it helped me and I was able to take walke and work some. I am very thanltful for the relief your medicine lias been to me. Mas. V. M. "BQ.KB, Deep WaterTW.

Well," she said, I was not sati sfied' tfiaf iiiy daughter Cirttfe to her death from natural causes, and I, prayed earnestly that it might be ret enled to m,e liow she came to her death, and after about an hour spent in pray-er I turned over and there stood 'my daughter and I put my hand out to feel for the poffin, but it was not there. She seemed to hesitate to speak to 'me, and departed. The next night, after I hadprayed again that the manner of her death might be shown, she again appeared and talked more freely and gave me to understand that. I. should be acquainted with the whole matter and disappeared. The third night she again appeared and die-closed tohre-to me. And on the fourth night she appeared and told me all about the difficulty, how it occurred and how her death was brought about." AND HERE IS WHAT ZONA - TOLD HER. "He came that night from the shop and seemed angry. I told him supper was ready, Und he began to chide because I had prepared no meat for supper, and I replied that there was plenty; there was bread and butter, apple sauce, preserves, and other things that made a very good supper, and he flew mud and got up and came toward me when I raised up and he seized each side of my head with his hands and by a sudden wrench, dislocated my neck.

"I have been there many times, and yet I could not describe the place so minutely and accurately as The attorney then said: Mrs. Heaster, was there not something about a sheet that you could not understand?" - - And she replied: .There was. She said that whenMrt:Rhue was leaving from the burial for home, she called his nttentioA to the sheet that had been under th$ side of her head in the coffin and he said, -mother, you keep it.' - - I kept it for 3 or 4 weeks anc while it looked clean and white imagined it smelled badly and concluded to wash it.

I washed it and boiled it and hung it out and froze it three or four days, but it still had a reddish color." -Counsel says, Have you that sheet with you(. She replied that she had it at her boarding house, j The sheet was brought in and exhibited to thajury, and it was decidely a reddish color.
