The Htarillux licovery Jiade by
Family on ilit-lr R'ir Home
Miss Wionia IJ jselin, a domestic em
ployed at tbe residence of J. H. Drayton,
424 Twenty-third street, was found in
the dining room in - a fainting condition
with a piece of cloth buund tightly about
her bead yesterday afternoon. Oa being
revived she was unable to give an accur
ate account of just what had happened,
but an A nous reporter who called at the
house this morning learned the following:
Mrs. Drayon h id been absent shopping
during the afternoou ana nbout 3 o'clock
a strange man applied to the girl Winnie
for somethiut: to eat, which was refused,
and be left the place. This was all she
heard from him until about an hour and
a half later when be returned
and noiselessly entered the house, coming
upon the girl in tbe kitchen. She saw
and immediately recognized him as the
same mn who bad applied to tier for
something to eat. He came toward her
without saying a word. She seized a
stove poker to t'efend herself, but the
rascal dashed something in her face
which blinded her for an instant, and
then seizing her he botiud the cloth about
her bead. She swooned and knew noth
ing more until she was found 10
minutes later by the family, who had
just returned home. The cloth which
had been bound about her head bad been
saturated with f omeihiag and the odor of
chloroform was plainly noticeable in the
room. The girl describes the man as
tall and dark complexioned with black
beard and wore a green coat. She uever
saw tbe man before that she remembers
of, and is in a nervous condition today as
a result of the shock. The scoundrel
was probably frightened away by the re
turn of tite fami y wh'c'i occurred only a
few moments after, but th(;y saw nothing
of anyone leaving the place. The police
arc at work on the case.
