Krs. P'enrose, Colored, Dies at Hospital
'rom Effects of Carbollo
Mrs. Ethel J. Penrose, colored, attempted
to murder her husband, John H. Penrose,
this morning and then committed suicide.
She assaulted her husband with a hatchet
and ended her life by taking carbolic acid.
Penrose conducts a pool room at 411 Mis
souri avenue and lives at 022 10th street
northeast, and it was at the family home
that the tragedy occurred. Penrose stated
that his wife was jealous of him and had
been under the impression that he had been
going with people who were not her friends.
The police of the ninth precinct were
^alled to the house on 10th street a few min
utes before 10 o'clock this morning and
found that the woman had failed in the at
tempt to kill her husband and had swal
lowed poison. She was unconscious an4
blood was streaming from the wound she
had Inflicted on her husband's head. Hus
band and wife were placed in the patrol
wagon and hurried to the Casualty Hos
pital, where Drs. Lloyd, Romaine and
Reeves took charge of them. Because of
the serious condition of the woman atten
tion was first paid to her, but the efforts of
the phyFicians in her case were of no avall.
She had swallowed a quantity of the acid
and was in a dying condition. Her deatn
occurred fifteen minutes after she reached
the hospital. The husband's wounds were
dressed. It is stated that his condition is
AWaits Husband's Appearance.
Penrose went down the river on an excur
sion yesterday afternoon and returned
home on the late boat. He retired as soon
as he reached the house, and nothing was
said between him and his wife about his
trip. This morning his wife got up and
went about her duties as usual, saying
nothing to him regarding the excursion. It
was nearly 10 o'clock when he arose and
went downstairs. He found his wife await
ing him, armed with a hatchet. After
striking him what she thought was a fatal
blow she went to another room.
The husband went to the kitchen and
was washing the blood from his head when
she appeared at the door and told him she
had taken carbolic acid. She was soon in
an insensible condition and d'd not regain
consciousness before death claimed her.
Coroner Nevitt was notified of the wo
man's death. He made an investigation
and gave the necessary death certificate.
Mrs. Penrose was twenty-three years old.
Arrangements for her funeral have not yet

Mr. Gans was born in Hesselcossel. Ger

INVESTIGATION OF THE TICK.
Dr. Stiles Denies That It Communi
cate. Spotted Fever.
The tick does not communicate the much
dreaded spotted fever of the Rocky moun
tains, according to a preliminary report
just made to the marine hospital service
by C. W. Stiles, chief of the division of
soology, who has returned from the Bitter
Root valley of Montana, where the rav
ages of the disease this summer have cre
ated terror. After the discovery that mos
quitoes transmit yellow fever and probably
malaria the idea aas suggested that the
western tick was the medium of convey
ing spotted fever.
Dr. Stiles sats the tick theory has caus
ed serious financial loss to the Bitter Root
valley and elsewhere, and has produced ef
fects which have bordered on hysteria. In
closing his report Dr. Stiles says:
In justice to the property interests of the
valley and the peace of mind of the in
habitants. I think no time should be lost
in publishing the. statement that the re
suts of study this year have absolutely
and totally failed to confirm the hypothe
ss that the tick is at the bottom of the dis
Dr. Stiles also worked on the theory that
the disease originates from a pyroplasma
in the dirty little gophers of the western
plains. He doubts if such a parasite in
rodents would develop in man. He like
wise finds arguments of a zoogeographic
nature against assuming that spotted fever
originates in gophers. He says that the
little spermophiles of the Bitter Root val
ley are frequently invested with fleas and
lice, and less frequently with ticks. The
tick that is common in the valley is found
on horses, cattle and dogs, and often on
man, but there is nothing, he says, to indi
cate that a hibernating animal is neces
sary for their development.
Dr. Stiles was unable to confirm any por
tion of the theory that all cases of spotted
fever are preceded by tick bites. He ex
amined ten cases, and in five cases he was
unable to, establish that ticks had bitten
the sick people.

Sketch of Bear Admiral's Life.
Admiral Shepard was born in New York,
from which state he was appointed to the
Naval Academy November 24, 1859. He was
graduated in 1861, and during 1861 and 1862
he was attached to the sloop Vincennes of
the west gulf blockading squadron. He
was promoted to ensign November 22, 1862.
That year he was also detailed to the steam
sloop Mississippi, and remained aboard that
ship until her destruction in 1863. He was
then ordered to the gunboat Essex, where
he served during the siege of Port Hudson.
He did duty with the naval battery of
nineteen guns on shore with the army for
(several weeks, for wbich service he received
a commendatory letter from Gen. Arnold,
Gen. Banks' chief of artillery.
During the siege of Charleston, S. C.,
and in the James river, he was assigned
to the monitor Mahopac. While on spe
cial service with the steam sloop Wa
chusett he, on October 7, 1864, partici
pated in the capture of the confederate
He was commissioned a lieutenant Feb
ruary.22, 1864, and in June. 1865, was sent
to the steamer Vanderbilt. He served
with the Atlantic squadron in 1865 and
1866, and on July 25 of the latter year
was promoted to lieutenant commander.
From that time until he was assigned to
the torpedo boat service, in 1872, he did
duty on a number of ships.
From 1872 until 1875 he cruised with the
Asiatic squadron, during which time he
commanded for awhile the Palos and the
Yantic. In 1875 and -1876 he was desig
nated for ordnance duty in this city,
whence he went to the navy yard at
Portsmouth, N. H. He was promoted to
commander in June, 1878, and until 1881
was connected with the Naval Academy
at Annapolis, commanding the Constitu
tion from 1879 to 1881. He was in charge
of the nautical schoolship St. Mary's from
1862 until 1886, and was then assigned to
the Naval Asylum at Philadelphia.
In May, 1889, he was given the com
mand of the Kearsarge. From the Kear
sarge he went to the Mohican, which was
with the Pacific squadron, remaining

tailed as equipment officer of the navy

service as lighthouse inspecto;. On March
3, 1901, he was promoted to rear admiral,
and on June 13, 1902, he was retired.
MOSQUITOES AT KEY WEST.
Place Hitherto Immune Now Threat
ened With Malaria.
Anopheles mosquitoes have been discov
ered in Key West, Fla., by George N. Mac
Donnell, who is an undergraduate in med
icine and a member of the fourth-year
class of the College of Physicians and Sur
geons, Atlanta, Ga. The fact is reported
to the marine hospital service of this city
by Dr. C. H. Gardiner, passed assistant
surgeon of the marine hospital service, who
seems to regard it as of importance. The
matter may be of interest 'in Washington
also because the anopheles breed of the
mosquito is thought to be thick here and
to be constantly .t work among the cit
izens of this city-in fact, earning their
daily diet from among and off them. In
doing so he or she is believed to transmit
malaria in extensive quantities.
Key West people are alarmed and are
trying to find the person who brought the
anopheles to that town, for it is not only
an anopheles, but its proper title is "ano
pheles albipes, Theobald." Mr. MacDonnell
idcntified them fully, and specimens were
sent to Prof. L. 0. Howard. the government
entomologist, and he had no difficulty in
locating the species.
According to Dr. Gardiner, Key West
has for years enjoyed immunity from ma
larial fevers of all kinds, and it is now re
called that systematic searches of the is
land have heretofore failed to demonstrate
the presence of any of the genus anopheles.
Dr. Gardiner believes that the new mos
.quito was introduced into Key West by
fruit-carrying vessels from Vera Cruz, New
Mexico, where they are plentiful, and
where they are supposed to have caused
an unsual and malignant form of malaria.
Dr. Gardiner recommends that measures
be taken to stamp out the anopheles in Key
West, and the citizens would be glad to
know what to do.
Dr. Gardiner says the first of the insects
discovered was July 29. and since that time
thirty-six have been captured, only two
being males. Tne two males were found in
a stable in Key WVest. They seem to have
been working on the horses of the town,
and were considerate enough to give the
more tender humanity to the females. How
much longer this division will keep up
among the genders of the anopheles Dr.
Gardiner does not undertake to report.
