Who was Murdered at the Ivy Inn, near Huddersfield, During the Afternoon of Friday, August 21st, 1891

Sweet maiden, thou art reft of life
    Just in thy girlhood's bloom,
Some cruel monster has consigned
    Thee to the silent tomb ;
And pity nils each tender heart,
    While brooding o'er thy lot,
And many years will pass away
    Ere thou art quite forgot.
In Linthwaite's erewhile peaceful vale
    long remember'd be—
A flower fair, of beauty rare,
    sweet simplicity;
While the base monster who has done
    Such cruel wrong to thee,
Shall be regarded as a blot
    On our humanity.
