SAYS GIRLS MUST BE BAD IN
NEW YORK OR DIE
New York, Aug. 19. Fighting all
attempts of physicians to relieve her
from the pain of bichloride of mer
cury poisoning, Elizabeth Heath, an
18-year-old orphan, whose home was
formerly in San Francisco, moaned
"A poor girl cannot be good in
New York. You've got to be bad or
you've got to-die. I wouldn't be bad,
so I can't live."
The girl came to New York a
month ago with a little money, which
soon gave out, and for two weeks
she claims she has been without shel
ter, eating scraps left by picnickers in
the parks, sleeping out of doors and
washing her linen in the parks.
N With the last ten cents she had,
which she had hoarded for just this
purpose, she' bought the bichloride of
mercury after she had not slept in
a bed for two weeks nor eaten a real
meal for three.
"New York is just empty glitter,"
she cried. "It's all false. An empty
shell with nothing inside. No one is
sorry for you. No one wants to help
you. You are like a dog. They kick
you if you are in the way, and they let
you go out in the dark and starve."
Physicians attending her prom
ised to secure her employment if she
will aid them in fighting the .effects
of the poison.
An Impecunious acquaintance of
mine literally coerced me into accom
panying him to a pawnbroker's, old
chap. He desired to obtain a gold
watch at a reduced figure, as it were,
and asked the blooming pawnbroker
person it his wants might be gratified;
And the fellow retorted:
"Yep, you've struck the right shove
shop, pal. We've got the finest line
of hocked tickers, kettles or thimbles
you ever shot your glims at. Buh
lieve me, boh, everything in soak here .
is strictly fush, and our turnip meters
can keep time like the Bulgarian
My word! '
