Says He Killed Yidim ot the
Baffling River Mystery
SLAYER IS BELIEVED INSANE
Hans Schmidt, Saying He Killed Anna
Aumuller Because He Loved Her,
Gives Detail of Revolting Crime.
Hans Schmidt, an assistant priest of
St. Joseph's Catholic church at 405
West One Hundred and Twenty-fifth
street. New York city, was arrested
and confessed that he had murdered
and then dismembered the body of a
girl, parts of whose body have been
found in the North river during the
past few days.
Schmidt's confession clears up the
mystery of the dismembered parts of
a girl's body found at different times
and places in the Hudson river, the
solution of which has baffled the police
for some time.
The murdered girl, whose name was
Anna Aumuiler, was a servant in the
pastoral residence of Rev. Father
Braun, pastor of St. Boniface's church
on the southeast corner of Forty
seventh street and Second avenue,
where Schmidt from December, 1910,
until May, 1912, was a curate.
Schmidt's only explanation of the
cause of the murder was that he loved
Anna. He said:
"She was so beautiful, so good, I
could not let her live without me. I
bad made up my mind that she and I
could not live together. I was a priest
and must remain with my church. I
could not let her go away from me."
The church authorities of New York
diocese, headed by Monsignors Moon
ey and Lavelle, who are vicars gen
eral of the diocese, held a conference
after receiving reports of an inter
view with Schmidt in the Tombs by
Rev. Father Evits to lea:n whether
or not Schmidt really Is a priest of
the Catholic church.
Schmidt made statements to Father
Evers about being "ordained a priest
by St. Elizabeth ot Hungary, who told
me to kill Anna as a sacrifice of
blood," and made many more wild
statements that inclines to the belief
that he Is insane.
There are reasons to believe, ac
cording to the church authorities, that
Schmidt is an impostor. For some
years, however, he has performed the
duties of a curate at two churches in
New York, at Trenton and at St.
Louis, and according to his own story
he was a priest in Germany before
coming to America from Bavaria in
Schmidt, according to Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Murphy and Inspector
Faurot, confessed that lie entered the
girl's room on the third floor of the
apartment at 6S Bradhurst avenue,
two doors north of West One Hundred
and Forty-fifth street, at midnight on
Sept. 2 and cut her throat while she
He tasted the blood, he says. When
he was sure the girl was dead he
dragged her body to the bathroom of
the apartment and there dismembered
it. Then he wrapped the parts of the
body up In either live or six pieces, he
doesn't remember which, and when
daylight came he took the packages
aboard ferry boats during several trips
and dropped the packages overboard.
These trips, so he told the police
iu Ills confession, took up the better
part of the day following the murder
" the next. Toward dusk o'. the sec
ond day while trying to wash away
all signs of his crime from the flat he
came across a part of the mattress
which was so soaked with blood that
he could not obliterate the stains.
Whereupon Schmidt told the police
and others he took the stained clothes
from the mattress at nightfall to a
vacant lot la One Hundred and Forty
In a "gospel tent" on the lot a re
ligious revival was going on when
Schmidt came there with a bundle
under his arm. Some boys were play,
ing about the lot near the tent.
Schmidt asked them to help him
gather firewood. The boys, glad to
have a bonfire, started to help htm.
They stood around while he burned
the bloody clothes.

Some Shots at "Haste."
Hurry usually leads to error. The
motto of It.-iron Plunket was "Hasten
slowly." Chur.hill said. "The more
haste ever the worst speed;" Bolleau.
"Hasten slowly and without losing
heart put your work twenty times
upon the nnvll." "Haste mnketb
waste." said Heywood. "I am always
in haste, but never In a hurry," Is from
John Wesley. Richard III. mumbled.
"Sweet dowers are slow nnd weeds
make haste." He would have made a
successful farmer. This Is Seneca:
"Haste trips up Its own heels, fetters
and stops Itself;" Tennyson. "Raw
haste, half sister to delay."
Life fur riulayt nnd doubti no time does
None ever yet made haste enough to live.

Buy Your Clothing Where You
Here is one little pellet of argument that we want to inject into
your system before we forget it :
There is no man or set of men, no firm, no corporation, no
concern in this country that offers better inducements for your
trade than we do.
If we cannot have a share of your patronage this season we
shall not be discouraged. We shall keep on trying for it and we
firmly believe our efforts will win you sooner or later.

Seal Stair Builders.
How seals cut steps in the perpen
diculur sides of Ire rakes iu order to
rise from the water for the purpose of
breathing has been recorded by mem
liers of Captain Smtt's nntai-rtic expe
dition. It was discovered that the
seals, which formerly were supposed
lo leave the water by leaping, actually
cut steps in the slippery surface with
the great rniiine or eye teeth. As soon
ns the teeth are placed in position the
head Is moved rapidly from side to
side until the Ice has been cut nway
sullicleiitly to afford a footing for the
front flippers of the animal. Each
step has to be laboriously cui after
this fashion until the Issly is far
enough out of the water to lie thrust
up the rest of the way by n kick of
the hind flippers. New York Press.
