N. Y. POLICE PUZZLED OVER WHO
TOOK POISON SHE'S DYING
New York, Oct. 12. While detec
tives are trying to find out who she
is, a pretty young woman is dying in
Flower Hospital today from bichlor
ide of mercury poison which she took
in the Grand Central Station. A
friend, the portrait painter, D. De
Rivcowsky, escorted her to the sta
tion a few minutes before she took
the poison last night and then, as he
was leaving the terminal, happened
to see her being wheeled across the
floor to an ambulance.
De Rivcowsky says he met the girl
by accident at an art exhibition in
Chicago, where he was showing one
of his pictures a year ago.
. Although he was with her at that
time for only an hour, he recognized
her coming out of a Broadway the
ater last Friday. He made an ap
pointment with her for Sunday and
they spent Sunday afternoon at
Brighton Beach. She refused to tell
him her name, except to say that she
was known as "Nini."
After coming back from the beach
the girl said that she was going to
Montreal to join her husband and he
accompanied her to the station. At
the station she excused herself for a
moment "to fix her hair" and then
took the poison. There is no clue to
her identity except the name "Ennis"
on her traveling bag. She had no
railroad ticket and only one dollar in.
