Mit. Editor: The citizens of this com
munity are in a state of high excitement
concerning the sudden deaths which are
occurring. Not long sin, we were star
tled by thet report that a Miss Simmons,
just across the Caie Feir, was se-eix;ly
beaten by her two sisters, xoiter , the ire-
port came that she was dead. Now, some
say she is ueau, anu niierreu iu r ayerie-
ville; other say her brother-in-law, v4th
whom she is said to have been too inti
mate, has clandestinly carried her away.
There is no doubt but that she has been
severly beaten. It is very likely her two
sisters would have done well to have read
tlie Scripture: "He that is without jsin
among you. Jet hi in first, cast a stone at
her. As it is, their siu is as great as hers.
Last week. Mr. W. Spell, of this coun
ty, weut to Dr. Holiday's office and said
his wife waspuriy (giving symptoms), h id
asked the doctor to preiiare her some
uiedicine. ;The doctor did so. The nied
iciue consisted of pills. Spell took the
pills, laid them away iu the office near a
bottle, iioni which he saw the doctor take
strychnine a few days previous, said; he
would be back that way and hhuu get
the medicine himself, as the office was
never locked. -He Went ou his en aud, got
the medicine in the doctor's absence it hd
went "home. When he got home his wife
was away from the house. He made1 a
plena ration of medicine' in a flask in the
presence of a Mr. Johnson, taking some
thing from a bottle, the description of
which, as given by Mr. Johnson, corrcs-
poads with Dr.Holiday's strychnine bottle;
he then asked Mr. J. to go with htm to
bring his wife aud children to - the house.
They went, and when they returned, Mr.
S. told his wife he had some medicine
which Dr. Holiday had seut her, aud giv
ing her the flask, told her to take a table
spoonful one hour before eating. Slid le
marked: 4lt is time to take it nowhto
which' he assented. Spell and Johnson
tlten left the house aud i went a short dis
tance to a work-shop. But a few minutes
had elapsed, when Mrs. Spell seut word
to her husbaud to come to the house us
she was feeling badly. : He went to i his
wife, and Mr. Johnson went tionie.i : A
neighbor lady who was present, savs Mrs
Spell took tlie medicine as directed ; also,
Mrs. S. was ou the floor when her husband
came iu and told him she would sooii be
dead, whereupon he laid her on the !bed
aud began to amuse the children. Soon
life was goue. The sudden death of Mrs.
S. struck Dr. Holiday to the heart, Who,
upou an examination of his office, missed
his strychnine bottle. Spell would have
no one outside of certain families to hau
die the. corpse: Dr. II. insisted upon i
post mortem examination which was per
sisteutly refused by Spell and his father's
family. X he corpse was buried: but Dr.
H. reported the tacts to the Coroner, who
had the body disinterred and now lia
the stomach for analysis. Spell was !ar
rested, but escaped ; aud many persons

He has been seen by souie women since

ed that the deceased had been treated

by her husband. The pot mortem exam

roborates the testimony. Oh for a law,
