DRINKING BOUT TRAGEDY. Sensational love letters were read in a trial at Notts Assizes on Friday, when John Charles Wild, a young collier, of Warsop, waa indicted for the manslaughter of Frederick Charles Severn in September. Accused and others, in- cluding deceased, went to the house of one Goddard, and drinking took place. Goddard fell asleep on the floor of the kitchen, and shortly after midnight a man named Waldcn was awakened by a noise, and found Severn, wearing only a night-shirt, dead at the foot of the stains, and Wild shouting, "Fetch some- one." When the police arrived Goddard's wife, who had been asleep upstairs, was missing, and later her dead body was found in a pond two miles away. On arrest Wild declared that owing to Severn's conduct a. fight took plaee, Severn falling downstairs. Prisoner now declared that he was not the lover of the dead woman, and admitted he had had the following letter from her: "I wish I could cook for you, darling. You know nothing is too much trouble for such a sweet boy as you. I wish I had you here now." A second letter from the dead woman to pri- soner read: "I shall never love anyone but you. We don't w-mt to go on tramp, though I don't mind if I die in your arms." The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and sen- tence was deferred.
