which was n legacy from relatives in
Germany. Schultz disappeared the
same day.
Otto Schultz came to California re
cently to talso charge of tho ranch.
From facts obtained by olllccrs nnd
surgeons It Is believed tho murderer
lay In wnlt for Mme. Castlno and
struck her down as she alighted from
bcr carriage. The soil of the ranch
In tho vicinity of tho house Is sandy,
making It nn easy matter to dig a
grave, but the slayer was in such hasto
that ho not only did not wait for tho
death of his victim before Interring
her, but covered tho body with only a
scant six inches of sand and loam.
Young Castine did not discover tho
ghastly work of tho murderer until he
hnd gone to neighlwrs in search of his
mother. When he returned from his
fruitless quest he entered by tho front
yard and came upon tho body sudden

sand and exposed the remains.

There was n Lancashire collier who
went out on Sunday with his wheel
barrow because, ns ho said. "I'vo lost

Then there was tho worklngmcn's

And tho gardener said: "It's easy
enough, sir. All you need do Is to
remove all tho stone3, plow up the
ground, plant it with gras3 seed and
roll It for 300 years."

Now York, Aug. 10. Surgeons at

mayor's blood tested twice a day for
the germs of septicaemia, or blood

That Is why there is nlwnys at least
one ablcbodled doctor on duty with

doctor in the room would simply have
to stanch tho How of blood with his
fingers for n moment or two until
ligatures could be applied.
