Terrible Sight for an Engine-fitter

At Willesden, to-day, an engine-fitter named Symonds found two of his children, Minnie and Eva, dead, with their throats cut.  In the same room he found his wife and two remaining children, Charles and James, sitting on the bed, also with their throats cut.  They were seriously injured.  It is stated that the woman had been drinking heavily.  (Yorkshire Evening Post, July 15th, 1897.)
