      "An unfortunate affair took place last Wednesday in Wellesley Township, not far from the Catholic church, whereby a man, Michael Huber by name, a brick-layer by trade, took the life of his old mother-inlaw as the result of an unfortunate blow. At the coroner's examination, carried out the following day by Dr. Scott, it was indicated and testified that Huber had for some time been a slave to drink and behaved like a true monster toward his family. That's the way it was on this day as well, as he drove his wife, children and mother-in-law out of the house several times. The old lady, towards evening, locked up the whiskey jug in her own chest, whereupon he grabbed the axe and broke the chest open; she then stormed into the house again to save her chest. He chased her out again, and threw a log at her with all his strength. He struck her with it with such force on the head above the ear, that her skull was split open and this led to her death eight or nine hours later."[translated from German]1a
