strangling her year old baby boy to
death, was held today by Police Judge
George Samuels to answer to the su

no interest in the proceedings.
When Yukl's husband died three
months ago and left her penniless she
went with her baby to live In the
house of a friend. She felt the dis
grace of poverty, and in accordance
with the tenets of her proud race pre
pared careful plans for putting her
baby to death and then taking her own
life. She arrayed herself in her wed
ding garments, infant in
his best silk dress and, after burning
incense to a small miniature of
Bud'lha. placed him within a sash and
smothered him. She then repeatedly
gashed her neck with a knife, but failed
to inflict a fatal wound.
Witnesses testified that the woman
was probably of unsound mind, caused
by her great grief. A number of char

case, and it is probable that the mur
