had thrown the body into the commission
of the crime... The poker 'was •fonzid, soon
after, covered 'with' the; blood; brains and
hat of the unfortunate lady. There wore
no - signs of robbery.and the detectives con
cluded that the murderer was a near *el*

difficulty about the matter; and`Mrs. Hill
had been advised to commence a prosecti
