DUCKWORTH, Pulaski, wife and daughter - {from Colville} Before The News reaches its readers many of them will have heard of the awful tragedy enacted near this place on Sunday morning, resulting in the death of Pulaski Duckworth, his wife and little girl. We give particulars as they are known to us. A little girl of the family had gone to Sabbath School as usual and when she returned and entered the house the first thing she saw was her mother lying on the floor dead. She ran to a neighbors and informed them of what had occurred. He went to the house and found the woman lying on the floor as the little girl had informed him. She had been struck twice on the head with an ax; the little babe had been struck with the ax but was still breathing. On entering the rear room Mr. Duckworth was discovered lying dead on the bed with a gash on each side of his neck and a bloody razor lying near. It was an awful occurrence and one that has caused a feeling of horror throughout the country. Mr. Duckworth was formerly a resident of this township and has relatives living here. The little girl died and all of them were buried at the Hart cemetery yesterday. Mr. Duckworth had evidently murdered his wife and child and then killed himself. He was no doubt temporarily insane.
