lins. a guest at the Bardwell House, in Rut
land, was found in his room with his throat
cut from ear to ear. It was evident that he
committed the desperate deed with the great
est coolness and deliberation. He had seat
ed himself in a chair and permitted the life
current to flow into a washbowl on the floor
before him. One extraordinary feature of
this horrible tragedy is found in the faet that
he left an incoherent statement, written in
his own blood, denying complicity in some
murder of which nothing appears to be
known. Numerous small scraps of paper
written over in the same way were found
scattered around the room. It was plain
that the man bad permitted himself to bleed
to dath slowly, and occupied his last mo
ments in writing these notes. At last ac
counts the affair remained a mystery, and
eertaiuly not even the morbid imagination of
a foe could eoojure up anything more ghastly
