Charged With Being A Witch.

ST. PETER, Minn., Oct. 12.--There is considerable excitement in Belgrade, this county, in a settlement of Swedes, over a case of what they believe to be witchcraft. A woman has been sick for three years, and accuses her aunt of being a witch and causing her sickness. The Swedish Church has held a trial, and witnesses solemnly testified to a belief in witches, and stated what they had seen in this particular case. The statement was made by one woman that she was posted in witchcraft, and had seen witches send the craft
off through the air, and seen it strike persons who were soon after taken sick. What will be done with the alleged witch has not been determined.
