    • Cook Teets, of Artemesia Township, has been sentenced to be hanged next month for administering poison to his late wife Rosanna Leppard last fall. When asked by the judge is he had anything to say, he rose to his feet and addressed the court for more than an hour, reiterating that he was not guilty and knew nothing about the poisoning. The judge said that the jury's recommendation for mercy would be forwarded to the proper authorities, but he could hold out no hope. As the prisoner, an old man who is blind, was removed by the constables, he steadily and firmly asserted his innocence.
