BRIDAL COUPLE TIRE OF EARTH AND END LIVES "Noblest Work of God Soiled by Lucifer," Writes Woman in Suicide Pact Message to Her First Husband Says Second "Rushed Her to Death" in a stand near the table was found >. half empty pint bottle of champagne. No word of explanation ttfas left to :hose who had enjoyed the confidence of the pair. A note to Atkinson direct ing the disposal of her rings and a cat and another note to Mrs. Charlotte Lynch, a sister of Atkinson, signed by Doth herself and Roche, were the only writings hinting at a long delayed act. Roche wrote a note to Ben Davis of T>2 Henry street, with whom he had been employed at the offices of C. C. Dodge, the Crown coffee company, ex pressing his indifference to his fate. Care had been taken by Mrs. Roche to provide from her account at the American National for all creditors. Creditors Cared For Checks were found on the dresser in favor of McLean & Co.. grocers, in the sum of $50; W. B. McGerry & Co., agents for the apartments, in the sum of $35, and to one or two othe trader people. All letters and checks were tvritten and dated August 11. The penmanship was large and deliberate md everything about the place indi cated that every caution had been ak«n by both to leave their affairs in srder. As soon as Detective McGrayan had made a careful survey of the apart ment and completely satisfied himself of the situation, he communicated with the coroner's office .and Chief Deputy •Joseph P. Kelly and Deputy John Whay len removed the bodies to the morgue, scaling the apartment to await the action of the public administrator. Notes Reveal Philosophy The joint note to Mrs. Lynch, signed by both Mrs. Roach and her husband, s^ems jto indicate that the suicide pact had been discussed with Mrs. Lynch, though she denied yesterday that she h&d ever had any intention of the act. It was as follows: Dear Kitty — We both send you our love. Whatever is is best. KATHERINE. . You wil s«>«» you have not mis placed you faith. ARCHIE. A second note, to Harry Atkinson, Mrs. Roche's first husband, reads: Dear Harry — If you do not want the cat. Kitty gets him. 409 Waller street, and I would like her to have my rings. The note written by Roche to Ben Davis, and which seems to indicate a flippancy reads: Dear Ben- — You're a good kid, Ben. Goodbye. Be good, Ben. Be good. ARCHIE. The will disposing of her property to 1 her former husband and signed by Mrs. Roche is a short and "perfectly legal document. With it passes all her In terest in property in Michigan to her former husband -with whom she was on very friendly terms. It is as follows: Whatever I die possessed, of either here or in Michigan, 1 leave to H. B. Atkinson. / \ KATHERINE ROCHE. Husband Little Known While very little is known by Atkin son, or others who knew the couple, of Roche, it is believed that he was but • recently from Boston. On several occasions he declared he was related to the Peabody and Roche j families of that city. He had _I>een employed as a coffee salesman for some time, and at the time of his marriage to Mrs. Atkinson he gave his age as, 28. Just one week after meeting her i he married her. Justice McGee perform —' Ing the ceremony in San Rafael. At that time Mrs. Atkinson called her former husband up by telephone and declared that she was unable to resist the man and that he was "rushing her to death."

GIRL MURDERED ON EVE OF NUPTIALS Bride to Be Is Found Dead in Her Room, a Victim of • Chloroform ABILENE.^ Kan.. Aug. 14.— Mis* Ber tha Benigus, aged 20, daughter of a merchant of this place and an- employe In the local telephone exchange, was found dead in her room at- the home of her parents this morning! The girl had been cloroformed and her hands were tied behind her back.: Her head was covered with pillows and blankets. The police believe that the girl's life was taken by one or more person*' who entered the house with the intention of robbery. It is thought that the girl was awakened and the murder com mitted to prevent. her giving an alarm. No trace of the murderer has been found. . . . . All of .the jewelry and other valuables belonging to the family had been hid den and none has been missel. Miss-Benigus was to have bepn mar ried to Earl Livingston of Topeka to morrow eveniffg. Livingston was spending his vaca tion in Salina whentbe murder was committed. Late this afternoon a note was found in the yard under the window of Miss Benigus* room. It was written In Ger man, and said: . "I have murdered her. Bring jewelry two blocks west." The contents strengthen the theory of murder and intended robbery.

The steam schooner Phoenix has had an eventful career since 1898, when it was first constructed by John S.-Kirrible.- It was sold to the Dollar, steamship company and sailed under the name Aloha. 1n. 1902, during the water front strike, 1 it was partly^ burned at Sausa lito. Later Templeman' and his asso ciates bought the "vessel, and remod eled /it, giving it appropriately the name of Phoenix. It was valued by Temple man at- $300,000 and was insured for aßout 25 or 30 per cent "of Its value. It was of , 270 tons gross^ tonnage and 1.60 net tonnage. SERIES OF MISPORTUAES .

MISS NIGHTINGALE CLAIMED BY DEATH Famous Nurse of the Crimean Wai* Passes Away After > -Short Illness 7 Was Only. Woman Decorated With British Order of Merit by King Edward / LONDON*. Aug. 14: — Florence '\u25a0 Night ingale, the famous nurse of the Cri mean war, died yesterday afternoon at her; London home. ; v \ Although she had been an invalid, for a long , time, rarely leaving ; her. room, her death: was somewhat unexpected. o" A week ago she was quite sick, but then improved' and on Friday was cheerful. During that night alarming • symptoms developed and she : gradually sank until 2 o'clock Saturday after noon, when an. attack of heart failure brought the^end. Her funeral will -be as quiet as pos-J sible, in accordance with her wishes. During recent years, owing to her "fee bleness and advanced j age, Miss Night ingale had received but few visitors. CELEBRATED 90TH BIRTHDAY On May .12 last she celebrated her ninetieth birthday. ; I Florence Nightingale, named for her birthplace, was born in Florence.Cltaly, May.. 12, 1820, of , wealthy :Knglish parents. Her mother was the daugh ter of that William Smith, the famous philanthropist: and member for Nor wich, who fought the battle of the dissenters In the English parliament and was one of the leaders in the anti slavery movement \u25a0 Her father .was named Shore, and only assumed' the name of W.^E. Nightingale with the estates in Derbyshire that made him wealthy. \u25a0 -In 1908 Miss Nightingale was deco rated with the order^of merit by King Edward. She was the first woman to receive this distinction, which, up to that time, had been" bestowed only on 19 men, each of marked eminence. The order of merit was founded by King Edward in 1902 for. the recognition of especially distinguished service' in all walks of life. : WASHED SOLDIERS' CLOTHIXG Prompted by philanthropic : instincts, Miss Nightingale early turned her at tention to nursing and studied the sys tem of nursing and hospital manage- ; ment under the Sisters of Charitjr in Paris and later on the Rhine. ' During the Crimean war she was sent at the head of a band of select nurses for the relief of the wounded soldiery at Con stantinople and there displayed mar velous ability. - - . One incident of the beginning of her work there has a homely interest. The sick soldiers in'that hot' climate were suffering as much, from lack of clean linens as from wounds. Many of the poor fellows had lain for weeks in the shirts they had worn in the grimo»of battle and the bleeding of wounds. "It was impossible, to get washing done, said those in charge; there were no laborers to do the work and there was no soap. Thereupon Florence Nightin gale announced* that she would do the washing herself. /^ .- " PRAISED BY BRITISH QUEEY "Angel of Crimea" and "Mother of Nurses" she has been called, and the words are sufficient to call up to our minds her heroism among the stricken soldiers of that*. torribleiSvar, and ' her magnificent labors In pehalf-of nursing generally. After the t whir,- tind about half a century ago, Queen .Victoria,' who had just made her "acquaintance, wrote of Miss Nightingale's "great gentleness, simplicity and wonderful, clear and comprehensive head." "I , wish,'- . the queen < added -significantly, "we had her at the warjofflce." -Within her sphere Miss Nightingale was an autocrat. \u25a0 Lord Stanmore, •in his VMemoira of Sidney Herbert" — the war minister whose letter inviting Miss Nightingale- to go to the., Crimea crossed her letter offering to go- — has criticised her, severe tongue and de fiance of authority. But in the pres ence of the appalling problem of hu manity; that faced her and-her band, of 38 nurses, what were red tape and au thority? • REFUSED NATION'S GIFT The hospital-was chaos. .There were neither hospital accessories nor medi cal appliances, nor changes of cloth ing, nor proper food. 2lt was a time for bitter speech j and defla nee ' of au thority. And. Florence Nightingale, her sight seared and. her ears ringing with the' infinite agony, thundered at the war office until the crime was un done and her own powerful control was set up over all the hospitals of the .east. 1 . • ._\u25a0 --\u25a0. .. \u25a0";.- - \u25a0 .- ; \u25a0 -• . y \u25a0 -,: When the war was over she set sail for England. The world" was ringing with her name. England awaited her with demonstrations of national grati tude unparalleled in ' history. - She took an assumed name,' stole back by an un expected route and escaped exhausted and unrecognized to the peace of her father's house at Lea Hurst, in .the quiet v valley of Derwent. And when later the nation expressed its thanks by raising a fund of £50,000 for < her benefit she quietly handed it over to found - the institution for " training nurses at St. Thomas' hospital, Lon don. , And with that act of radiant un selfishness she established the great modern movement of nursing. ' , The Crirriean episode was" only an r incident in her career. Nursing to her wasnot a pastime or an occupation; it was a vocation.
