I FATHER'S DOUBLE MURDER. A shocking tragedy took place at Upton-park on Sunday. William James Falkard, employed at a butcher's in the West-end of London, and occupying rooms at 214, Qneen's-road, murdered his two children, a boy, aged seven months, and a girl, seven years old, and then attempted suicide. After being away from home for a week be re- turned in the early hours of Sunday morning, and asked by his wife what he was going to do, said, You'll see, presently. You can take the two bovs, I'll take the girl and the baby. Where I go they will go." Mrs. Falkard left the house for a few minutes, and on her return she found that her husband had cut the throats of two of the children and had made a determined attempt on his own life. Falkard carried the baby from the kitchen to the second floor and murdered it. Then he went to the room where the other children were in bed. He told the eldest boy, aged nine, to go downstaiis and tell his mother that there were burglars in the house. Immediately after Falkard was heard calling out, It is all right now, I have finished Grace." After cutting his own throat Falkard made a deep gash in his thigh. He was conveyed to the West Ham Hospital in a critical condition.
