Dallns, Feb. 7. For sono reason
not )et Known Jllss 12ula llurton,
aged eighteen )ears, swallowed near
ly two ounces of carbolic acid today
about 11:30 u'clock and died In a
tow minutes' time despllo tho fact
that Dr. Allen nnd two other nh) Hi
clans worked with her 111 an endeav
or to offset tho effect of tho terrible
poison. All efforts of tho doctors
weio futile and tho joiing woman
succumbed In about IHleeu minutes
after the poison had been swallowed
No arrangements for tho funeral had
been made up to tho noon hour but
the lemalns will piobably be Int cried
The rash deed of tho jomig worn
an was eouurilttod at the homo of hoi
sister, Mrs. C. S. Kenned), 17i High
land, comer WItchlta street. Jus
beroro taking the fatal doso tho
)ouug woman sent her little niece to
tho drug stoio on tho corner not far
from tho house to purchase a dime's
worth of carbolic acid. At tho s.imo
time she gae tho little gill a postal
card or letter to mall. Membeis of
the family bel!eo thai this card or
letter holds tho secret as to why she
took the step she did and ended liur
A lopoiter visited the Kennedy
homo n short time after death had
eomo to tho )oiuie woman. The
mother of tho girl, a sister and a
brother wuro seen, but all stated
that they had no Idea as to what had
caused tho girl to lalio tho step Bho
did tako. Tho slslor said that sho
had not been In the best of health
for some time and that she appealed
to bo down-hearted and disconsolate
for bome time. Tho deceased and her
mother wore residents of Itoyso City,
and were In Dallas visiting at the
homo of Mrs. Kenendy. Desldes tho
sister and mother tho girl Is surviv
ed by four brothers. They aro 12. 11.
Horton, a car repairer for tho Katy,
and resident oC this city; 12. A. Hor
ton of Itojso City, and 1.. I), and Mor
lell llurton, both of whom reside In
Oak Cliff. The father Is dead.
"My sister was about eighteen
y ars of ago nnd was born In Tennes
see," said Mrs. Kennedy this morn
ing. "Whllo sho had been in ill
h alth for soma lime, jet wo had no
Ide.i that sho Intended to end her own
life. This morning sho wioto a let
ter or poslnl card and sent my little
gill down to tho corner to mall It.
At the same tliu she told her to go
on to the ding store and buy her a
dime's worth of carbolic ncld. Tho
Hist wo know that sho had taken tho
poison was when wo libaul her moan
ing In her room. Wo summoned doc
tots as quickly as possible, but the)
could do no good and she died within
fifteen minutes after she had swal
lowed tho acid."
Miss Horton was bom In Tennes
see hut had loslded III Texas practic
ally all her life, most of which was
spent at lloyso City. Her father died
at the place six years ago nnd since
then she and her mother hud made
their homo with tho son and brother

tlves they know of no reason why
she should deslra to end her life.
