WAS TEMPORARY INSANITY
Theory Advanced In Connection With
Suicide at Iowa City.
A dispatch from Iowa City'' throws
t,lie following additional light upon
the life of the young woman who sui
cided at that place Friday morning:
"Mabel Ives is now identified posi
tively as Florence .lack, of Traer,
Iowa. The name was first erroneous
ly announced as Jackson, and it is
said that she went by that name nt
home, preferring it to her own. Her
brother, Charles, of Traer, knew her
immediately. Her father, W. L.Jack,
an almost sightless veteran of the
civil war, is an inmate of the hospital
here. Miss Jack was IS. It is believed
that brooding over unrequited love
weakened her mind. She had made a
suicidal suggestion to her brother
Tuesday at Traer. A post mortem
proves that the girl was absolutely
"The temporary insanity that, un
doubtedly led the girl to the awful
act has doubtless been preying upon
her f.r some time. She recently re
turned to Traer from St. Paul, Minn.,
where she had been visiting her sis
ter, Mrs. I. S. llean, an instructor (as
the girl had truly stated) in a dra
"The girl, herself, had never been
on the stage, but she was much in
clined to become an actress, and had
talked of that life as a possibility of
the future. She was formerly an in
mate of the Soldiers Orphans Home
nt Davenport, for several years of her
childhood, and therein attended school
for a long time.
"The young man, who' is believed to
be the one whom she loved so deeply
that life without him was to her frail
mind valued as naught, is O. L. Hull,
of Olt'ps Falls, X. V. He says firmly
and positively that he never made a
declaration of love to the young wo
man. He is a non-resident of Cedar
Kapids, where he met her, but has
been spending several winters there,
the Saratoga billiard halls leing his
frequent headquarters. He says that
he is a follower of fairs and other
summer exhibitions, and conducts
frames of skill, etc., during these fes
tivities. In the winter he travels
around, enjoying himself until his
working seasons reopen. He aflirms
that he never won her love, even if he
is attributed with seeking it, and that
he never made a statement to her that
was prompted by other than friendly
interest and a desire to help her earn
"She was first met by Mr. Hull in
Cedar Rapids, where he paid her what
he describes as friendly attentions,
chatting with her, calling on her and
rarely taking her to the theatre.
"So far as he knew, to the very last,
she had no idea of committing sui
cide, and she had not acted like one
about to become insane. He was about
to get her. a position as a saleswoman,
he saidj when Jhe tragedy, occurred."
