The Kansas City lhdletin ot a recent date says:
"About svf o'clock yesterday morntni? Mrs.

Eirange noise apparently in me street, listening
closely, she thought something was going wronsr lu

when suddenly s'ae heard a woman's voice crying:
"Georgle, oh my Georglel what In the name ef
gooonens are you doing down there 7"
Mrs. Knight opened the window JUBt In time to
hear a most heartrending scream, and a loud splash
In the cistern In the yard of Mr. Charles Iiels, which
adjoined that of Mr. Knight. The splashing and
screaming In the cistern Increased, when Mr. Kels
rushed out .'of the front door In search of his wlfo
and child; finding they were In the cistern heat

suddenly remarked in a calm, unexcltcd manner:
"My baby is down there, the baby is in the water,"
and immediately became unconscious. She was
taken Into the house, and efforts were made to re

hour's effort, and was found to be dead.
Mrs. Rel8 remained In an unconscious condition
nntil about 10 o'clock, when she awoke, and called
for her child Georgle, a child older than the one
drowned. The poor woman is unconscious of her
loss, her reason having departed. Mr. Iiels Is a
steady, Industrious mechanic, who removed to this
city from Wyandotte thia spring, and is engaged in
the manufacture of furniture, in connection
with the furniture factory. The neighbors
