POLICE WANT HUSBAND WHO
HAS DESERTED YOUNG WIFE
From a happy bride, who believed
she had married a prosperous busi
ness man, to a deserted wife, so des
perate that she, attempted to take her
own life and that of her 5-months'-old
baby, was the length of the road
that Mrs. Sarah Ansel, 1414 W. 14th
street, has traveled in a little more
than a year.
When the girl-bride entered her at
tractively furnished home the day of
her marriage, she believed the story
her husband told her of his prosper
ity. Shortly after, however, she was
disillusioned. A wagon from an in
stallment house drove up and took all
the furniture away. Only one in
stallment had been paid on it.
It was then the husband confessed
Jhat'hewas a bartender on a verjj
small wage, but the girl told him that
did not make any difference in her
love for him, and sne tried to make
the money he gave her cover the ex
penses of two, and then of three,
when the baby came.
But the husband grew tired of pov-
erty's struggle and a week ago he de
serted his wife and child. The girl
brooded over it until she wrote a lit
tle note saying "life is too sad to be
worth living," and turned on the gas.
But when the baby began chok
ing, a realization of what she was do
ing came to the mother, and she stag
gered to the window and tried to
raise it, then fell against it, shatter
ing the glass.
The noise attracted the neighbors,
who broke in and carried the mpther
and the baby out in the air, where
they were revived.
The police are searching for the
husband who deserted his family and
the mother promises she will try to
live "for the sake of the baby."

The judges of the Appellate Court

and Gridley who testified to the
good character of Daniel Donahoe
when he was on trial for conspiracy
to defame Clarence S. Funk, were
criticized for their action yesterday
by several local lawyers.
The jUTIges were scored on the
grounds that Donahoe's case might
later come before them on an appeal
and they would be placed in an em
Silas H. Strawn, president of the
Chicago Bar Ass'n, said the judges
did a wrong thing by coming down
from the bench to the witness stand,
especially when they might be called
on to review their own testimony.
