Another hatchet

Well here is a nice bedtime story about chubby Mrs. Miland who fell through the floor of her ramshackle backyard shed and found – a hatchet wrapped in bloody newspaper. Her house fronted Spring Street, which is very close to the Borden home. You can guess what happened next! 🙂 St. Louis Dispatch, June 7, 1903. It was a sensation!

The Boston Post also ran the hatchet story on June 1, 1903.
