MURDERERS' DEN DISCOVERED .
' crlppe r-'ere Association)
Zuerich, Switzerland. June '21 Near
Rutti, a village in the Zuei ich Oberland,
the police have made a highly sensational
discovery. For a long time a remote
farm house was occupied by a family
named Oberholzer, consisting of two
brothers and a sister. For some time
evil rumors concerning the Oberholzer
had been floating about and they were
accordingly shunned and feared by the
other villagers. .
A number of robberios had been com
mitted in the neighborhood, but although
grave suspicion rested on the recluse
brothers, their guilt could not be brought
home to them. Unwelcome visitors to
their farm were received with gunshots,
and so they were left unmolested until a
few days ago when the authorities found
causa to search the house. An imense
quantity of stolen poods was fmmrt Kn
worse things were discovered later. A
wall excited suspicion owing to its pecu
liar shape and whan an opening was made
a rough coffin was found enclosing a
female skeleton with clothes still adhering
to it. Its identity ha not yet been estab
lished but that some awful crimes have
been committed in the house appear to
be now practically certain,
