WOMAN WHO PREDICTED HER
DEATH IS DEAD
Grand Junction, Col., March 10.
Mrs. Clara B. Carter died yesterday,
two weeks to the hour after the date
she has predicted her death. A post
mortem examination will be made to
determine cause although physicians
attribute it to starvation, a condition
the woman brought on herself.
She spent her last hours making
paper flowers to be used in decorating
her coffin. She had her grave dug
and cemented and picked out the
gravestone to be placed at her grave.
Less than two months ago, Mrs.
Carter was successfully operated up
on for appendicitis, but although her
health improved, she became obsess
ed with the idea that .she was going
to die and could not be reasoned out
of that belief.
