The old house on Smutty-nose island, Isles of Shoals, in which the Wagner murder was committed, is rapidly being cut to pieces by relic hunters. The bedroom, where there were so many spots of blood, is completely honey-combed, and the woodwork around the window through which Mrs. Hontvent escaped, has been entirely removed.
