Poisoned Her Daughters
Sioux Fai.ll. S. D., April 21. Saturday evaning Frank R. Hyde on returning home discovered his wife lying on the kitchen floor unconscious and bleeding from wounds in the arm made with a razor anu his daughters dead in their beds. On the parlor table was a letter written by Mrs. Ilyde, in which she stated that she had poisoned her children because she believed that they were gradually growing insane. Hereditary insanity had prevailed in her family, and rather than be a burden to her husband she had decided to take the lives of herself and children.
