As Door of Cell Closed Told Sheriff She is Innocent.

April 19--"Sheriff Hodson, tell my children not to weep for me. I am innocent of the horrible murder of my husband. Some day people will know I am not guilty of that terrible crime."

Those were the parting words of Margaret Hossack, the Indianola murderess, to Sheriff Hodson when she was turned over to the prison warden at Anamosa penitentiary last night. All along she was proclaimed her innocence of the murder and hopes the time is near at hand when the real murderess or murderer will be found out and punished.

It is universally believed at Indianola that if Mrs. Hossack did not murder her husband she knows who did.
