WICKER, THOMAS WEAR. Following are details of a terrible tragedy enacted a few days since in an Illinois farm * house: At about 10 ofclockon Wednesday night a double murder was committed near the village of Bandin, six miles northeast ol Charleston, HL The victims were Ne- hemiah Fleetwood and wife, aged sixty-eight and seventy years. The Fleetwoods lived in a two-story house. They slept downstairs, and the hired man, James Winkleback, occupied the room directly atoow them, while across the hall, upstairs, slept the grown daughter, Emma. The family retired early on Wednes- day night. At about 10 o'clock Emma was partly aroused, and heard Winkleback, she thought,talking with the old folks below. She dropped off to sleep again, and some time afterward she heard another noise below, but was not wide awake enough to know whether it was the sound of a revolver or blows with a hammer. Again she went to s^eep, but was soon awakened by the smell of smoke. She saw that the house was on fire, and called across the hall to wake Winkle- ba$k. He pretended to ^ust wake up, and told her that she could not get down that way (the stairs leading from Winkleback's room' to the room below occupied by the old folks), but she burst through the room and down the stairs to the old folks 1 bedroom. With hurried efforts she put out the fire and cried out to Winkleback to run for help to the neighbors. He brought no help until he had been sent the second time. After putting out the fire tne daughter found the dead bodies of her father and mother lying in the charred remains of the bedstead. Their clothes were burned from their bodies. Stove wood had been brought in and placad on the bed to feed the fire. Neighbors arrived and found that Fleetwood had been murdered be- fore the fire was kindled. The old man's head had been crushed,and was completely severed from thft lx>dy. His wifft, ha,H been shot, the ball passing in at the corner of her eye. Her throat was also cut from ear to ear. Circumstances point to Winkleback as the murderer, although he denies all knowledge of* the crime. Vvhen it was suggested to search the well for the missing axe he pro- tested that he had left the axe in the woods. The well was pumped dry, and in the bottom was found Winkfebacks own axe covered with blood and gray hairs. Stains of blood were also found on his trousers. The next morning he appeared dressed in a clean shirt and refused to account for the one he had discarded. Winkleback was arrested, and the sheriff started with him for the jail at Charleston, as a crowd of 500 persons, who had collected at the • scene, threatened to lynch him. A revolver, which Winkleback acknowledged as his, was found with two of the chambers empty. It la believed that lie shot Mrs., Fleet- wood with it before cutting her\'throat The object of the murder is unknown. The •old folks had no money. U seems that Wiu- kleback was in love with Emma, and had in vain sought for her parents' consent to their marriage, but this would hardly give him cause to take their lives. The coroner's inquest resulted in a verdict holding Winkleback responsible for the crime. The jail at Charleston was guarded by about a score of the friends of the sheriff, and all were fearful lest the mob should come on and attack it. A hurried consultation was held, and it was soon determined that the safety of the prisoner demanded his speedy removal to Mattoon, twelves miles distant. Winkleback was handcuffed and conducted to a waiting carriage, and was driven to Mat- toon. During the ride an effort was made to get something out of the prisoner, but he was shrewd enough to understand the importance of keeping his mouth shut. He said, how- ever, that he was innocent.
