Crime News

Napoleon, O., Feb 19 - J. Hoffman of Pleasant township accused his wife of poisoning his 16-year-old son because she applied for a divorce. To prove his assertions, he had the stomach taken from the exhumed body and examined by esperts, who found four and one-half ounces of arsenic therein. The woman, on being apprised of the result, fled to parts unknown. Great excitement prevails and the woman will doubtless be lynched if found.
