A part of them have been fake news items of alleged deaths occurring in Christian Science households. Three of the latter class I have investigated and exposed during the last six weeks—one of them as to the "Eberty" case in Kosciusko County, one of them as to "Captain Hubbell's wife," and to-day one of them the "Hamilton, O., case."
