DEATH'S A FICKLE LOVER
I ON DON, Oct. 12. Death is a fickle lover. One courts death and gazes
" with favor upon his dark iace. Death stretches out his arms and
promises forgetfulness. One takes a step toward him and he turns and
slips away and jealous Life is vicious with its punishment.
. There was the case of Maud Jeffrey but that's the story
''
It started when a inau told a lie.
Maud, 24, a woman proud of the stiff respectability of English middle
classers, believed Isaac Duffy when he said he'd marry her sometime and
that then "it would be all right."
; DUFFY ALREADY HAD A WIFE
Duffy couldn't marry her. He had a wife and it could d never be
"all right." . t .. . ;
Duffy could nt mairy her. He had a wile and it could never be
dren. Duffy's wife found 'but. In a rase of jealousy she sought out Maud
and mauled and pummeled her, scratched her eyes and pulled her hair
and tried to hurt Maud's baby.
Maud fled, to her brother-in-law's home. He told her she and the
baby might spend the night in his sitting room.
MAUD WAS "TIRED OF IT ALL"
"I was tired of it all and there didn't seem u chance to be happy,"
says Maud. "I thought it would be better to die and take the baby with
me to the Other Side."
She dropped her last three coppers in a penny gas meter, drew the
gas stove to her and laid it between the baby and herself.
In the morning the child was dead and Maud was nearly dead.
They tried her for murder at Old Bailey. Duffy is gone and can't
be found. The other baby, a boy. whimpered by his mother's side in the
prisoners dock.
JURORS FINDS HER GUILTY
Maud, dishonered and ashamed, told her Mary and" told how now
she wants to live for the other baby's sake.
"He needs me," she said, "and I want to live,"
The jury found her guilty and the black-capped judge read the death
warrant to her.
There's a chance that the higher courts will grant her freedom.
Anyway, that's the way it goej when one courts Death.

TERRORISE
PREDICTED
WITH FALL
OF SOVIET
lyASHINGTON, Oct. 12. Signs
"of the approaching collapse of
Bolshevism in Russia are seen
by state department officials in
the crumbling of soviet authori
ty on the' Polish front and the
rapidly augmenting strength of
the anV-Bolshevik forces In
southeastern Europe under Gen
eral Wrangel.
Already consideration is );.
given at the department, it wn - sr " 1
today, to what may follow t1 id
of soviet rule in Russia.
The prospect of anarchy :.nd cba-
i os in the event of soviet di. solution
;s very real, according to officials,
but the belief was expressed that the
lonal Zemstvos have been so well
organized as to maintain a semblance
of order and some cohesion of econ-.
omic life until a stable government
capable of obtaining the al -ren e
of the majority of the Russian peo
ple shall arise.
Driven From Persia
The situation in Persia, where for
a time Bolshevism threatened to
disrupt the country. recently has
cleared, according to reports receiv
ed by the department.
The league of Bolsflevism with the
Turkish nationalists also is regard
ed as having been weakened with the
rout of Mustapha Kemal and his fol
lowers. Most significant cf the wane of
soviet influence in Russia, accord
ing to officials, was the rejection of
Bolshe1ki overtures by Switzerland
which is situated so ns to he able to
form an accurate opinion of the char
acter and future of the sriet re
gime. It i-( now also known thtt
somewhat earlier Rumania rejected
overtures of the soviet government
it was paid.
Attitude of Distrust
The judgment of socialists unon
the soviet government was expected
to be registered with emphasis at
the meeting of the German si -.-laliM
at ! lie where the risht wing of th
German socialist party Is expected
to withdraw from the convention on
the issue of adherence to the Mos
cow third Internationale. The right .
wing includes the great majority of
socialists in Germany and may be
considered in the cpirllon of offi
cials, as representative of the grow
ing attitude of distrust of socialists
generally in Euroie toward Bolshe
vism. ARMISTICE IS SIGNED
