The last seen of her was ln the early morning. when a frlend accosted her on the street. Mrs. Brown wns undeterralried whether to go on a car or to walk, but she flnally told h?r ?frienl that she would go for a walk. From that tlme no one has come for ;ward to say that ho had seen hor. Shortly before 12 o'clock her hus? band called up Humphrey Calder over ihe telephone. and asked him if a woman had been seen' ln the park. Iio told Brown that a woman's hat and umbrella had been found. and, Wlth an oxclaniatlon, Brown hung up the recelver. He arrlved a short tlmo later at the reservoir, and tlic-n called up hls home to know whether his wlfe hnd returned. Sho had not. and ho left tho pork on tho verge of col lapso.
