Some light has been thrown oh the murder in Milaii of Professor Bossi, a famous women's surgeon, at the hands of an Italian Tunisman named Sacuto, who committed suicide himself says the Milan correspondent of the "Daily Mail." ' - - • .

An, old woman servant oi: the Sacuto family makes it appear that Signora Sacuto, who .-is • still in hospital in a | serious condition—she was shot by. her husband after he hady killed the su'r-j geon—suffered from. nervous troubles. About a year, ago she went to consult Dr. Bossi, and at once fell into a morbid state of admiration for him. Often, in a state of delirium, she said that Bossi was her king.and-'she'.was. queen. She continually wrote to Bossi letters of incoherence. Bossi never answered her, but she lived under the strange delusion that, everything written or printed that came into.the house, even newspaper articles or Apolitical items, were messages from Bossi to her. Her husband, knowing her trouble, many times tried to steady her, and to persuade her. that the professor could not and must not worry about her. Every time Sacuto spoke about it she used to give way to hysterical fits of crying, and shouted that she was in love with the professor, who completely dominated her. It is not known yet: if ..lately Bossi reciprocated, the Signora's „ ieelings. One of Sacuto's sons,"a boy of 16, says that his father a: month ago found a letter which disclosed to him' the true character of the relationship between his wife and Bossi. ,
