Des Moines, Ia.,-Oct 20-William Peddicord, a farmer, living about eight miles southwest of Perry, attacked his wife with a club. Inflicting injuries from which she cannot recover, and then killed himself. The family was well respected and apparently well-to-do, although it has developed that Peddicord owed $1,200, of which his wife was ignorant, and he feared the revelation of their true financial condition, the farm being a legacy of Mrs. Peddicord and in her name.
