ENGLISH WOMAN KILLS
MAN WHO WRONGED
Tells El Paso Police Pathetic
Story-Shots Fired Through
Door Went True.
El Paso, Texas., Dec. 14. First
deserted and later spurned by the
man she loved and for whom she had
sacrificed all that a woman holds
dear, V. Mary Arloff, an attractive
young Englishwoman of 24 years,
last night shot to death Robert J.
Schram ait the Xavier hotel, 114 South
Onhoa street. When arrested shortly
afterward and lodged In jail the poor
woman broke down entirely and
talked freely regarding the circum
stances which led to the- tragedy. In
conclusion she declared frequently
amid choking sobs, "I don't care
whether I live or die in fact I pre
fer to die."
The details of Mrs. Arloff'a story
are almost heartrending. In outline
it is as follows: She was married
In England at 18 years of .ge short
ly uftor which, with her husband,
she came to America and after trav
eling through this country for some
years they came to La Junta, Colo,,
where she lo.it her health and was
confined to the hosplal. While there
her husband disappeared and has not
been heard from since except
through a postal card from New York
ity which was devoid of address.
While in La Junta after her recovery
her services were Invoked as a nurse
to Mrs. Schram, the wife of the man
whose life she yesterday took and
following her death, the unfortunate
love affair began. From first to last
It uppears to have been a one sided
arrangement the woman following
the man of her choice from plate to
plnce, supplying him with money
earned through menial service and
rtnully witnessing the positive evi
dence of his unfaithfulness. This oc
curred but a few days ago since when
the distracted woman had sought
vengeance, pistol In hand. The op
portunity came yesterday when
Schram was caught by the victim of
his perfidy In the act of leaving a
restaurant in company with another
woman. Mrs. Arlott followed him to
his room and when he closed the
door In her face she shot him dead,
