The Rev. W. A. F. Campbell and Mrs. Campbell, of Toronto, Canada, a young couple who have been attached to the Canadian Methodist Mission in Tokyo for the last two years, were brutally murdered early this morning at their summer cottage, No. 563 Karuizawa.

The assassin was a Japanese burglar who entered the house through a second story window. Just what happened between his entrance and the time the woman servant was aroused by the screams of her mistress will never be known. The murderer escaped, and is still at large.
