The Danville Press of Wednesday, the 5th, inst., says that the report was circulated in this city that the remains of Wm Drollinger's first wife had been removed from the cemetery for the purpose of determining if possible the cause of her demise. She has been buried for a number of years, yet the doctor who made the examination of her stomach, claims that he found traces of arsenic poisoning. Drollinger is now in jail at Williamsport, awaiting trail for the poisoning of another wife in July last. The last discovery will be an important one on account of its bearings on the case, which will shortly be hard. It was always contendec that Drollinger had killed his first wife to marry his second, after tiring of her had made way with her so as to marry his third. The friends of the second Mrs. Dollinger are now more determined than ever that the inhuman husband shall be punished as the law provides. John Logan, an inmate for some months at the County Farm, who has been a sufferer from consumption, died at the above place last Saturday morning. Ed Cardiff, an old citizen of Covington, died at his home in the above place last week. It has pleased our Heavenly Father to call to his heavenly home Matilda Lovina Mills, daughter of Thomas and Rebecca Mills, after 17 months untold suffering. Diseas, unremitting disease and suffering, which tarnished life's joys and which turned its sweetness to bitterness, released the God given sprit from its tenement of clay on Dec. 7th, 1894. Our sorrows and our cares for her welfare cease, yet in memory she will be ever present; her Christian character, her model life, her devotion to home and friends, her courage to meet life's duties, her unwavering trust in God ware the pleasant landmarks that her sorrowing friends behold. Surely to die is to live. The deceased, on the day of her demise, was 24 years, 4 months and 12 days old. She united with the M. E. Church in 1886, and with the Epworth League in 1890.
