Murderer Says He Loved His Victim

Providence, June 9. In the AMOS D. PALMER murder trial yesterday the examination of the defendant was continued. PALMER, who claims to have been a victim of epilepsy, testified hat many time he had looked in a mirror and had seen two noses and a double mouth. This was preceded by peculiar feeling about the eyes. He was subject to bad dreams, and several times woke up badly scared. He contacted drinking habits in Florida, where he could not drink the water. One summer at Narragansett he was very dissipated ad his chief drink was brandy and soda. He had attacks of delirium tremens. "Did you love your wife?" he was asked. "Yes," he replied in a soft one, and his eyes filled with tears as he said he loved his wife more the day she died than ever before.
