MURDERED HIS WIFE -- A man named Barney HINDLEY has been arrested for murdering his wife. He confessed he had cut her up, put her in a meat barrel, dug a hole in the wood shed and buried her. After the murder, he was in the habit of cutting his wood over the spot under which she was buried. The body was found, proving the truth of her husband's confession. He was placed in jail, where he committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor.
