It, I think we have an excellent chance of
victory !n the State this fall. This Is a
time when all Democrats should forget the
differences that have divided them and

David B. Hill spent the day yesterday re
peating these words, or the sentiment "that
they convey, to the Democratic , leaders
all over the State who remain In tills city
after tho harmony meeting at the Tilden

There was much talk of gubernatorial

, look was anything but the golden dream of
oitss wnicn tncy had pictured, faunaay,
three days after their marriage, Mrs. Keen
um left her husband, and went to herBlster,
Mr;. Kumesmueller.
Mrs. Keenum seemed In particularly low
spirits yesterday morning, and told her sis
ter that she wanted no breakfast. Later
she v sited a neishborlng drug store and
purchased an ounce of carbolic acM. Re
turnii g to the house she swallowed tha
contents of the vial.
Her sister found her soon after, uncon
scious. Physicians were summoned and the
city ambulance conveyed her to the City
Hospital, where ohyslclans worked over her
all day while her sister sat ot her bedsides.
About 3 p. m.. six hours after taking tha
poison, she regained consciousness for a few
momenta and pleaded with the physician
to allow her to die. She then buried her
face in the pillow and tried to smother her
self. The doctors held her hands and In
a few seconds she lost consciousness again.
Doctor Rassieus. Assistant Superintendent
of the hopital. stated that if she did recover
from the effects of the poison, complications
probably would follow which would result
In death.
Mrs. Kamesmuellcr said: "A quarrel with
her husband was respons'ble for Mamla
taking poison. She was captivated by Gas'
brass buttons and thought It would b a
fine thing to be the wife of a soldier. Three
days of married life was enough for her.
She left him and came to live with mo."
