TEACHER MURDERED, YOUTH'S CONFESSION OF CRIME. The body of Miss Lydia Beecher, school- teacher at Little Falls. New York, was found in a swamp in the middle of a forest outside the town, says the Daily NfW8. She had been murdered, and there was evidence of a fierce struggle. A youth of seventeen, Eugene Gianini, a former pupil of Miss Boecher, was arrested on suspicion, and has since con- fessed to the murder. Gianini, who comes of Italian parents, ad- mitted that he met Miss Beccher returning to her home from schorl on Friday afternoon, and accosted her with evil intent. When she turned upon him indignantly he struck her over the head with a wrench. He then dragged her into the forest and repeatedly stabbed her. The girl, who was only twenty- one. was terribly mutilated. Miss Beecher was the daughter of a Presby- teri&n minister of Auburn. New York., bril- liantly educated and universally respected. Her father, who has been a professor at various colleges, is the author of several books on Bible exegesis.
