A Tery aad tragedy came before the
Park police court the other day when
Marie Marterca, a (loosest ic servant, waa
tricdl for the hotnicido, through careles
Beaa, of Blanche, the infant child of Mrs.
Blanche Trerillc, an American actreaa,
known on the atage as Mis Irring.
Last anmmer Mrs. Trerille was living
at 87 Avenuo d'Antin. ' Iler daughter,
who was only 4 years old, was 1 icing ed
Tocatcd at a convent in tho neighborhood
of Pari. Wlicn the holidays commenced,
the child came to live with her mother
la Taris. On Aug. 86 Mrs. Trerille had
to go ont in t lie afternoon. She confided
the child to the care of Marie Marten,
who promised not to loso aiht of her.
She, however, shut the child np in ber
own room, locked Imt in and took tho
key away with her.' W'lien Mario Mnr

marks made by Iter delicate little nails

All that could lie done to save he child
was done, but it tvaa too late. The cliild

Ia her despair Mrs. Trerille accused
the servant of nir.rder. saying tliat Marie
Marterez detested the child and had pur
pisely shut her r.j alone with matches,
with which DhuicU? iia-1 always liked to
play. Uut the judicial authorities uade
iu'piiries and learned that Marie Marte
rex was as a rule very attentive, to the
child aud tonic pxl mre of it. Tlte
charge of mnnler was co:iae,jneutly
changed to that f homicide through care-lessne.-'-s.
