The latter, however, succeeded, m reaching his house, the police being m close pursuit for the greater part of the distance from the Church to the house. The police had to face the rushes of about a hundred peasants. The Inspector was stunned by a blow and while lying on the ground he was beaten by peasants who ran away at the priesi's command. Every bone m Martin's body except the right temporal bone was fractured. The skull was smashed and the bone driven into the brain. The body pre* sented a shocking spectacle.
