There was, however, one woman vis

little more attention than to the oth

came early to Ids cell bearing a mes

very much. I have thought about tt,
but I dared not to link. I want once
more to put my little baby to sleci:
Just once to put my baby to sleep!"
So the woman went to the hotiae
where the murderer's motherless baby
was lodged, and brought her to the

IletalU of the Tragedy Which Gave the
laland 1 ta Name.
The twin lights of Thatchers Island
are familiar to many who go down to
the sea In ships, and to many more
who spend the summer months on the
rocky headland of Cape Ann, but
probubly comparatively few are famil
iar with tho dotallu of the tragedy
which gave tho Island Its name. It
was In a long-ago August 2(')0 years
ago, to be exact that the Ilev. An
thony Thatcher, his wife, his four
children, and several other persons
left Ipswich in a vessel for Marble
head, where Mr. Thatcher was to take
charge of the church. They set sail
ou the 12th, a fair summer day, but
with a head wind and very little of
It." They had a tedious time beat
ing out of Ipswich Bay, and at night
on the 14th had not yet succeeded In
doubling the cape.
A sudden, furious August storm
came on In the night, and the luck
less craft was driven on the rocks.
where alio soon went to pieces. Mr.
Thatcher, after being buffeted about
by the sea for a long time, was able
to cling fast to a rock and climb on
shore. Drenched and shivering, ho
walked about vainly trying to see or
hear something of his late compan
ions. How dreary must have been
that lonely vigil In the storm and
darkness, while the Insatiate sea thun
dered on the rocks about him, and.
like Paul under similar cireumstanoes,
ho "wished for the dny." In the early
dawn he saw his wife "getting her
self forth from among the timber of
tho broken bark." He went to faer
asslstanco, end she was soon safe be
side him. All the others, twenty-on
In number, perished.
Among them were the Iter. John
Avery, his wife and six children. The
name of this unfortunate family Is
commemorated In "Averys ltock," a
hidden reef shunned by mariners, not
far from Thatchers island. At the
time of this melancholy shipwreck
there were not more than two or three
families on Cape Ann, and no help
came for Mr. Thatcher and his wife
on the first day or the second. For
tunately some provisions washed on
shore from the vessel, and the weather
cleared, so they could make them
selves conifortnble during the time of
their enforced stay. Tbey were finally
taken off by a fishing vessel and oar
ried to Mnrtilehead. Some years later
Mr. Thatcher went from Mnrblehend
to Yarmouth, where he lived to a good
old ago. Other children were born
to him and his wife, and the name Is
perpetuated In various places to this
day. It was more thnn a century
later that tho twin lighthouses were
built. They were first lighted on De
cember 21, 17T1. Boston Transcript

Now, Nolan was at one time council

husband. The case had been placed
upon the "day calendar," but had been
frequently postponed, and Mrs. Mor
larlty, by the time she had made her
fifth call, was In an exceedingly dis

the tones of Nolan's rich brogue were
