Klderly Housekeeper of Girls' School It
Found Dead In Cousin's Home In Msdl
son Avenue Analysis May Disclose
Presence of an Alkaloldal Poison.
Tho body of Mlas Anita Martine
Ketchum, an elderly woman who had been
for seven years housekeeper for tho
Brearley School for girls at 17 West Forty
fourth street and who was a cousin of
Mra. Edwin Thorne, was found yesterday
morning In a bedroom on the third floor
of Mrs. Thome's home at 658 Madison
avenue. The autopsy performed by Cor
oner's Physician Lehane discredited the
first reports that Miss ketchum had met
a violent death, but until a chemical
analyaia of tho contents of her stomach
la made Dr. Lehane says he will be unable
to determine whether death was due to
natural causes or to some drug causing
nervous collapse.
After the autopsy Dr. Lehane said that
ho had found no evidence of organic
weakness or of violence. The only possi
bility that he could consider, he said, was
that the chemical analysis would show
thst Miss Ketchum had swallowed some
alkaloldal poison.
Mr. Thorne. who Is secretary of the Now
York Dock Company, president of ths
Federal Terra Cotta Company and a di
rector and officer In several other business
concerns, with an office at 43 Cedar street,
bad been spending the summer with his
family in his country home at Babylon,
and only a housekeeper by the u of
Petersen and her husband w-re living in
the town house in Madison avenue. Miss
Ketchum. who had recently returned to
town from Babylon to take up her duties
at the Brearley School when it
oen on October 5. had a key to the Thorne i
home, and at tho request, of her cousin
Mrs. Thorne. she had gone to the Madison
avenue house on one or two occasions to
look it over and see that everything waa
right. Her own home hud been at the
Hotel Maryland, 109 West Forty-ninth
street, for several years.
Miss Ketchum let herself in to the
Thorne house about 7 o'clock on Monday
night. She told Mrs. Petersen that she
would sleep in one of the spare bedrooms
on the third floor, where there was a trunk
containing aome of her effects. The
Hetetsens heard Mias Ketcbinn moving

there was no more noise Irom her room.

and when she had left their summer
home in Bahvlon she had been in the

Former Falls to (iet Representation on
the Cotton Bell Bosrd.
ST. Loris. Oct. 3 Frank J. Gould
failed to-day in his efforts to get R Lan
caster Williams a directorship in the
St. Louis Southwestern Railway or the
Cotton Belt Railway, in the election here
to-day. The stockholders' proxies elected
the old board of directors, thus insuring
u- i cj.i. ir...A ..;
dent. The Gould brothers were not in
attendance. Frank Gould's attempts to
gain representation in the Cotton Belt
road were against his brother's wishes.
The directors chosen are F. H Britton,
Tom Randolph and Murray Carleton of
St. Louie; R W. Gallaway, W. H Taylor.
E. T. Jeffrey, Howard Gou'd. F.dwin
Gould and Winslow Pierce. James H.
Morris and Lawrence Green were dropped.
Henry W Anderson, representing the
minority interests, made a statement
at the meeting in which he said that the
minority stockholders had more than
enough proxies to elect one director.
He said that in the list of proxies there
were duplicates in Borne cases on both
sides. To push a contest, he thought,
might lead to open litigation, but all the
minority wanted was to broaden the
reprebentation on the board by the elec
tion of an independent. He hinted that in
so doing the majority would avoid liti
gation which might prove embarrassing
to both sidea.

When I read in the newspapers of the

Detectives Mieelll and Cavane. whom

they have been watching walking hastily
I up Second avenue at Fortieth street last

it up the avenue for all he was worth.
Cavane. In the lead, pounce'd on Jiim and
after a scuffle had his man.
The first thing Cavane did was to feel
in Cuchira'a pockets, and In his right hand
pocket he found two packages, pear
shaped, about Ave inches long each,
wrapped up in brown cloth. From the
end of each package twisted a fuse about
twenty-five inches long. As soon as
Cavane fished out tho packages Cuchira
flopped on the pavement and began
to bellow. The noise brought out every
body in ear shot and the detectives shoul
dered their man on a car. All the way
down to Police Headquarters Cuchlra
kept up his screaming, protesting that he
was innocent and stopping occasionally
to tear open his shirt and beat his naked
chest until it was red. At intervals he
tore his face with his nails, and the noise
of his coming could be heard for blocks
around Police Headquarters, where he waa
arraigned, charged with violation of the

Hairlines in Men's fabrics
at Saks'
I Hairlines continue to be a very popular
choice. This is due in large measure to
the fact that hairline fabrics, inexpressibly
neat of themselves, are superlatively neat
when tailored. And particularly when
we tailor them.
Q We have a wonderfully representative
selection of hairline fabrics, including wide,
medium and narrow effects. However, in
our personal opinion, the narrow effects
are the neatest and most effective, especially
in rough cheviot cloths, and made witn
soft rolling lapels and a suggestion of shape
liness at the waist.
These hairline fabrics come in colored
and self stripes on black, brown and blue
grounds. And by procuring one of these
distinctive hairline fabrics and having it
tailored by us, you effect an amalgamation
that has no parallel in the current history
of clothes.
