Murders Increasing.

From the report of Attorney
(ieueral tiilmer it apK-ain that
murder tire on the increase in
North Carolina. After reading the
State papers for the past year and
noting the unusual minuter oi mur
ders the public was fully prepared
for this statement. The question
of vital concern is "how shall the
number lie d.-creiwcd t " Some go
to the extent of arguing that the
law passed ill ls'.KI dividing mur
der into first and second degrees
ought to lie repealed, but thi will
hardly lie accomplished. The ten
dency of the law is not in Unit di

There are two quite picturesque
presidential Ikmuiis ii launching in

and perished iu the flames,
Fxactlv how the women
killed is not known. The first in
tiiuatiou the Heights.! had of the
tragedy was this afternoon, when
Mrs. Strom bridge home was found
to lie on fire, and immediately utter
she was seeu to set fire to another
house acrosM the street, iu which
her daughter lived, and also to two
barns iu which were IN head of!
rattle and three horses. When
party of men attempted to break
oM-n the tiarn to release the am
luals, .Mrs. .Mrowl.riilge, who was
standing in front of her blaing
home, brauuishing a revolver, tired
at them reiM-atedlv. Several of the
men mane a rtisti Hoping 10 close
with the mad woman and disarm
her, I nl she held them at bay with
the revolvei. While tlu-v were
h-sitating she suddenly cut her
throat, filled a pail ot water ut the
well, thrust a quantity of hay and
straw into it, and placing the whole
mass on her head, rushed into tin
blaing house, in which her charred
IkhIv and the IsHlicsof her dailgh
Icr and mother were found alter

The three women lived a hermit
life, working on the farm like men
and often wearing men's clothing.
They are supixiscd to have la-en

lieved to have gone suddenly mad.
For several day she nppcai-ed to

of life was hiicli that none of the

with her. A suit recently brought
against Mrs. Strowbridge for wages
