Polish woman is dying in Poston on ac?
count of the faithlessness of hor lover.
For two wooks past she has refused to

She i> Evelina Rinciswiez. When sho
eumo from Poland two years ago she
had just turned SO years. she found j
employment at several places. Her j
father was a farmer and sheep raiser in
Poland. Cue day a young man rode out
from Warsaw and mot Evoliun. This
bad been prearranged by the parents. jj|
His father was a wool dealer and hers
a wool grower. They were frirnds. and
fixed up a schnitte to unite the families.
The young people wer?- agreeable. Their 1
course of true love ran smoothly until
three years ago. Then the lover decid
ed to try his fortune in America, lie
settled in a little town In Illinois and
begun to study medicine, working in a
store a part of the year to secure enough
money to pay for his education, his
father sending more or less as the con?
dition of his business warranted.
A year after her lover left Warsaw
Evelina decided to leave, too. She
longed to see him,and the only way
she could do so was to come to Poston.
where souie of her father's friends
were, and secure work, as her parents
were unable to support her away from
them. Sho had rather vague idea of
distances in the United States. At any
rate, she would bo nearer her lover,
than if she stayed in Warsaw. So she
came, and for two years she lived in the
j hope that some day they would l.e
i The couple corresponded constantly.
\ Past dune Evelina received a Qnul letter
i from Illinois. When she read it in the
': dining room she fell to the floor in a
dead faint. The letter was the death
blow to the young woman's hopes. For
' si\ weeks the girl kept at work, al
! though her friends could see that she
was gradually pining away. Thon she
gave up. and was compelled to take to
her lied, where night after night, she
\ prayed thai death might release her
1 from her sufferings.
The release did not come, however,
and two weeks ago sho announced to her
attendant that sho was g.iing to starve
herself to death. since then her
? physician has been tmahle.to induce her
to take food, and slowly her liTo is ebh
