Girl and Rival To Death Trap Miss Jackson Says She Took Mart? to Room of Dentist at Latter"? Suggestion ; Police Accept Her Story Other Evidence Aids Her South American Who Ki!le<! Himself Siiid He Slew Woman Through Jealousy Jos? Arenas, the dentist who was found dead from three bullet wounds tit his apartment at 116 West Seven? tieth Street, Saturday afternoon, took his own life, the police declared yes? terday. The wounds from which Ruth Jackson and Ignacio Mart:, who called on him there, are suffering, wore in? flicted by Arenas, the police believe, in the? manner related by Mart; Saturday night. Tho confidence of the police in the tnuli of tbe account of the shooting given by Mart. Is based upon an autopsy performed yesterday by Dr. Bo nj am in Schwartz, deputy medical examiner, and upon evidence which they found substantiating Marti's stor>. The autopsy showed that all three of Arenas's wounds could have been self inflicted. Marti's wour.il is of no con? sequence, and Miss Jackson probably j will be discharged from Bellevuc Hos pita] in a few days. They are being. held as witnesses. Miss Jackson do- ; clared that jealousy inspired Arenas i to shoot at them and take his own life. ; She gave the following account of ; events leading up to the shooting: She met Arenas at a dance carnival in the St. Nicholas Rink, at 60 West Sixty-sixth Street, and lived with him at i 19 West Ninety-sixth .Street. A week ago Arenas moved to Ho' West Seventieth Street, and told Mrs. Emily Silver, the landlady, that he would bf?*i jalono, hu'. Miss Jackson was 'ht re for two days, unknown to Mrs. Silver and others in th? Tells of Arenas's Jealousy Arenas was 'urioua one night be? cause she came in late, and 'ore up a j pair of her new silk stockings, ?She ' retaliated by tearing up some of his silk collars, and left him. to join Mart),: the object of Arenas's jealousy, at 59 West 104th Street. Or. Friday she moi Arma-- in the | street and asked for her trunk, which was in his room. He agreed to give ; it to her, an?! suggested that she bring Marti along when she came. Miss Jackson and Marti called on Arenas ; about C p. m. Saturday. He asked an-; other visitor, Juan Maldonado, seven- j teen years old, of 21 West Sixty-fifth! Street, to leave the room because he, liad an important matter to discuss. Maldonado wont out. Dr. Arenas took a pistol from a drawer and shot Miss Jackson. . She fell, feigning death. Then Arenas shot Marti, who threw a robe over Miss Jackson, then jumped from the win? dow, which is on the first floor, front, j Meanwhile Arenas killed himself. Marti re?ntered the house and half) carried Miss Jackson to Columbus Ave- ? nue and Seventieth Street, put her in I a taxicab and took her to Roosevelt , Hospital. Marti's account tallied with; Miss Jackson's. Miss Jackson said she was of Scotch- j Irish extraction, was born in Colum- | bus, and was a cabaret singer here, j ?She refused to tell the authorities at ; Bellevue Hospital, to which she was transferred, the names or the address of her family, now living in Toledo. Yesterday she recei'-etl a telegram j ?from her husband. Ernest Schult'/., a I Mc-Graw Taxicab Company driver in ; Toledo. Said He Killed Cuban Woman She said Arenas once told her that he had killed a woman in Cuba out of ; jealousy. She had expected to die a? his hand some day. Others in touch with the circum? stances supported details of the story. Maldonao, also held as a material wit? ness, said that he had gone from the room when "Arenas asked him to and had heard shots later. Then he ran from the house to the apartment of ? Jose Leonores, who was to dine with ' Arenas but had not started for his house. Both calle? .an hour later and detectives questioned them. Al Roberts, driver of the taxicab, and I William Wc idward, who was with him at the time, said thsft Marti and Mi Jackson. came for a taxicab, and she remarked; "I'm shot." Failing to : a policeman at that momeni they went; to Roosevelt Hospital. Jos?'- Linares, of 140 West Sixty-sev? enth Street, said Arenas had been fasci- ? nated with Miss Jackson for a long time. Linares lunched with Annas on , Saturday at 1T0 West Sixty-fourth Street. Peter Torres, of 12? West Sixty-sev? enth Street, said Arenas came here two years ago after graduating with hon? ors from the University of Bogota, in Colombia, South America, and had been employed by the Stern ; Dental Lai ? ? oratory', at 218 Fast Fourth Street, fie ! expect?-.! to ope- lental ft ???.:? soon. Arenas told i ?rrcs, "Ruth is fooling me," and dec!) i-c ? he woui.il sei for a formt ' - ,- ., Cuba. He mailed a letter to her a we? ft ago ?kii g her to conn- to New "^ ork. Arenas':-, FatSjSr un Avia!or Others at the restaurant Arenas fre? quented said that his father was an j aviator in Porto Rico, that he had a mother and sister in South America .and that he was to begin work as an interpreter of Spanish in September at McDonouKh'n School, at 318 West Fifty seventh Street. A month ago Arenas bought a pistol in New Jersey and re? marked that he might have use for it soon. Spanish friends are raising money to pay for his funeral. Henry Zimmerling, chauffeur of 129 West 103d Street, told of lettei i M . Jackson had received from lier husband I and parents, begging her to return to Ohio. On the floor of Dr, Arenas*? room were buttons and shreds torn from clothing, evidences of a struggle not ully explained. Mrs. Silver, thy land? lady, heard noises that indicated a nght but she diil not fco to the room until alter the shooting. The pistol found beside Arenas was a Belgian automatic of .38 calibre Bullets that wounded Miss Jackson and Marti corresponded with those remain? ing in the magazine. j Toledo police were unable to associ? ate Miss Jackson with any family there yesterday.

Enos was found at James and Plane Streets, Newark, at 10 o'clock Saturday night in a dying condition. William D. Min ningham, Deputy County Physician, said yesterday death was due to acute poisoning. On the back of a woman's picture | found in Enos'a inside coat pocket was written, "My own. my darling, my wife ; please bury this with me." In a letter written to Ccldie Chort zinoff Enos, 110 Madison Avenue, pre? sumably his wife, Enos declared his only regret in taking poison was that it would temporarily separate him from her. He wrote the letter while waiting I for the poison he had swallowed to ? take effect. A telegram sent to Goldie Chortzinoff Enos at the Madison Avenue address was returned. An opened letter was also found in Enos's pocket addressed to Captain Sherman P. Enos, Leavenworth, Kan. Ponzi Returns $1,000,000 to His Investors Rush of Timid Clients to Withdraw Deposits Dies Away When They See That Claims Are Promptly Met Ready to Start Again Boston Financial Wizard OnlyAwaits Official 'O.K.' to Resume Operations Special Diepatch to The Tribune BOSTON, Aug. 1.?-Well over a mil? lion dollars, it is conservatively esti? mated, have been paid to customers who lost faith in Charles Ponzi's Securities Exchange Company here since he halted operations early last weeky when he announced that he would accept no new accounts until his ac? counts had been audited by the au? thorities. This audit is now under way under direction of Assistant United States Attorney Gallagher. Ponzi declared there, is "no question" of his resuming operations in the near future. Ponzi's business grew so fast that he is unable to tell, except approxi? mately, just what amount of money he holds belonging to his clients. He is further unable, he declares, to tell definitely the amount of profit he has made for himself. He has declared the total on deposit which represents his own share of the postal exchange profits is between $8,000,000 and .$12,000,000. On- the big "rush days" last week about $300,000 a day was paid back to the public. After that the demand lessened and toward the end of the ! week the number who sought to re- I deem their notes was comparatively small. On Saturday, though the office was open several hours, the number was negligible. $4,500,000 Notes Outstanding Ponzi declared that before he began disbursing funds he held approximately $3,000,000 belonging to his customer.-, in return for which they held his notes ! calling for $4.000,000. Ponzi explains he is unable to give more definite figures because of the ; nature of his accounts and because he ; has not had time to become familiar with them. Although he has developed ; his business to the point where he was taking in more than $500,000 a week, ! he had a staff of only sixteen clerks, working without adding machine or ledger. That his company still holds "up-1 wards of a million and a half dollars" ! belonging to others, is Ponzi's opinion. He believes that this total will not ! diminish for the reason, he declares, ; that these customers have had several , days' opportunity to take their money out and have not done so. Aside from whatever cash Ponzi may have on deposit in European banks?he asserts it amounts to millions-^the run upon his pay window the past few days ; apparently did not strain his immedi? ate financial resources. He had liquid funds at hand to meet them all, and even when it was at its height Ponzi I was smiling and undisturbed, declaring that "no matter how fast they came, ! their money would be waiting." Good Business in Branches The Italian said he has a limited knowledge of the extent of the business done in his branch offices. He ilnder stands, he said to-day, that a very j good business was being done at Man- ! ehester, N. H., and that it was just be- ! ginning to develop in New Jersey and elsewhere. It is known that innumerable per- ; sons are ready to hand him their cash in exchange for his notes tho moment ' official word comes that Ponzi's ac- I counts are "O. K.," and that he may j continue operations again, if that word ; comes.

Bedtime Stories Reddy Fox Trusts His Nose - ? _.- p By Thornton W. Bnrgess Whate'er he does, where'er he goes A Fox will always trust his nose. ?Reddy Fox. Jolly, round, red Mr. Sun had gone to bed behind the Purple Hills. The Black Shadows were creeping across the Groen Meadows and all through the Green Fore3t. Eoddy Fox watched them from the edge of the Old Pasture. Ffo.wns waiting for it to ^ct quits dark. As he waited he grinned. *'lf nothing has happened to Peter Rabbit, and I don't believe anything has, he has simply been staying at l-.ome in the dear Old Briar-patch. And if Peter has been staying at home in the Old Briar-patch all these days and nichts it is for a reason. There is something there that interests him more than gadding about gossiping, and it must be something very inter? esting indeed to do that, I have an idea that Peter has a secret and that that secret will interest me quite as much as it does Peter." As soon as it was dark enough to suit him Reddy started toward the Old Briar-patch. He trotted swiftly until he could see just ahead of him what fooked ?ike a bigger, blacke.i Shadow in the midst of the Bind? Shadows he ha<l watched creep oui from the Purple Hills. He knew il wasn't a Shadow at all but the Ok Briar-patch itself. Then Reddy bega* to nwe very slowly and cautiously crouch i p.g low and every two or thre? steps stopping to look and listen. Reddy knew exactly where were th< patches of sweet clover nearest thi Old Briar-pate) and it was toward th? nearest of these that he now crept You see Reddy makes it his busines to know such thing? as this. He make it his business to know all about every thing that interests those in whom h is ?himself interested. He is alway interested in Peter and Mrs. Petei and so he knows all about their favor ite clover patches and other eatin ;,iacrs. He knows just which ones aV vuhin a jump or two of tha Old Briar patch and which ones are far ?n?tig away to make them a bit dangerou for a careless young Rabbit. The clover patches nearest the OJ Brjar-patch were the cues ho was ir tc rested in now. He examined the firs one very carefully, smelling the groun i-ll about between it and the edge c the Old Briar-patch. He did the gam thing at the next patch of clover. Bot times he shook his head in disappoin ment. But at the third patch of iwei clover hi? eyes suddenly gleamed wit -a i-faction and eagerness. Redd A n That wonderful r.o;;e of h "Six," said Reddy. "Six, and no one ?mows about i hem but me." had found the fresh scent of Rabbi; \ and it was young Rabbit, very young! Babbit. "Just as I thought." muttered j Reddy. "Peter has a family and that ! is why he is slaying at home. I won- ! der how big that family is. I must find out." Slowly and carefully Reddy went all around that patch of clover, his nose In the damp grass. In one spot the Rabbit scent was very strong. "This is where Peter sat keeping watch," thought Reddy, and grinned as he pic? tured to himself Peter sitting tip look? ing this way and that way for danger while the little Bunnies ate their fill. He found the scent of Mrs. Peter and recognized it at once. But what interested him most wm th" faint, scent of young Rabbits al! about. Slowly, patiently, carefully he followed each little line of scent. Often they were so mixed together that he couldn't tell them apart. Then they would separate. Reddy was in "no hurry. He took his time and be worked carefully. At last he was satisfied. He glaneed once toward the Old Briar-patch, grinned, and then trotted away as silently as he had come. "Six," said Reddy. "Six, and no one knows about them but me." (Copyright, 1??0, by T. W.

She . I worships her husband and is naturally j pleased with hie success, but has little I use for modern society, with its clubti and other distractions away from the home fireside. ? Mrs. Ponzi first met her future hus? band at her music teacher's. Ponzi declared to the music teacher, after the pupil was gone, that he was going to marry that girl. It made the music teacher laugh. "But he did," says Mrs. Ponzi. "He came to see me without bothering to ask whether he could come. Ho gets his own way; you can't resist him. It was so with this scheme. He outlined i? to mo last December. 1 could hardly understand and ftld him I thought it probably would be like all the rest. You see I loved him and was always content to do my own work, to live in the little house in Soinerville, where we were at the time, and be modestly happy. I never wanted great riches. "Since then Charles has earned this house and millions. We have one of the best cars. Wo keep two maids; we could keep dozens, but I never would give my consent. The more servants the less freedom. I like a house where you can talk and not be overheard? where you can say what you wish at all times. i "And I like to keep house, to cook, I but particularly to keep a clean house. | You may be very sure that my house ? out in Somcrville, which I kept myself, was even cleaner than this house. j "I' don't care anything for parties ; or for society; I just like my homo j and my husband. Ever since we..have j boon married we have always spent our evenings together. As he used to ex? plain, when men tried to get him to go ? to places after business, 'Please excuse me; I have an appointment every night after 6 o'clock with my own little wife.' " Ponzi Imitators Besiege Money Order Officials Would-be millionaires have been calling up the postoffice money order department steadily since Charles Ponzi -made known the other day that he had made $9,000,000 through postal coupons. They want to know how to go i about doing the same thing, and quite frankly ask the authorities for infor? mation. Albert B. \V. Firmin, superintendent of Hie money order department. through which all this country's in? ternational money orders pass, said ! people had been bothering him every ? few minutes. Sometimes they pre- i tended to have a money order, but a j little inquiry proved they hadn't. One j man said he had an order from London ; for ?100. But $100 is the maximum for any money order. Most of the : impostors were stumped when asked I for the serial number of the money ? order. Firmin said the government would I detect even a modest attempt to make | gains through money orders. Some j foreign governments have quit issuing ! money orders, and all have long been j keeping close watch, because of the chance for profit that fluctuating rates of exchange now offer. He said the war had made no marked difference in foreign money order ' ! business, except in stopping money orders between tho United States and ; Germany.- The largest number of : j money orders continues to go to Eng- i land, and the orders of the largest i amounts to Italy, evidence that Italians ! prospering in America do most for j those they left behind. > Firmin's stock reply to callers re- ? fusing to believe that millions can't be ! made through his department, is that i i Firmin himself might have taken ad- ! j vantage of it if such were the case. ! ?7. S. Officials Admit \ They Have No Evidence ? Ponzi ?s a Criminal Daniel J. Gallagher, United States District Attorney of Boston, whose office is auditing the books of Charles Ponzi, get-rich-quick wizard, is here to attend the supreme convention of the Knights of Columbus. Mr. Gal? lagher presided at a committee meet? ing yesterday at the Hotel Commodore. Joseph C. Pelletier, Boston District Attorney, who brought Ponzi into the limelight by suggesting that he sub? mit to an audit, is also here, attend? ing the convention as one of the supreme directors. Mr. Gallagher said that he had not personally examined Ponzi's books, and that he could say nothing about them until the audit had been fin? ished. How long this will be he does not know. According to the United States Dis? trict Attorney, the government has no criminal evidence against Ponzi, but naturally is incredulous of stories of interest at the rate of 400 per cent. Mr. Gallagher confirmed stories of . street demonstrations in Ponzi's be? half and remarked that Ponzi was apparently a modest and likable individual.

It is estimated that more than 10,000 stores are holding August furniture sales in the United States today.
