five young children were sleeping, sue
donned a v. rapper, and taking a gallon
of oil. a match, a stout strap and a
large knife, went into the yard, where
a stake stood 50 feet distant from the
honse. Pouring the oil over her cloth

stake with the strap. She then ignited
her clothing She shrieked only once,
the cry being beard by a neighbor. who

blackened and scorched from head to

features unrecognizable. So firm was
her resolution that she did not struggle
while burning to death. Thes'ake wa

For some months past Mrs. Campall
had been subject to fits of melancholia,
during which she would brood over her
