"I am an all round machinist and
clock maker by trade and can make
any kind of an explosive myself with
out the aid of anybody, and I will kill
you and Burns like a dog. as I know

Without Learning It
CHICAGO. May I.—There died in Chi
cago yesterday a woman who, although
a resident of the United States for B7

guage of her adopted country, never
cared for any but the customs of her
own native France, and who for half
a century was a central figure in nearly
all the Important social gatherings of
French-Americana in Illinois.
The woman was Mme. Louise dcs
Combs Favard, who was a member of
the old French nobility and was born
86 years ago in Cherbourg.
Fifty-seven years ago she came with
her parents to the United States with a I
colony of French people who settled at ■
Nauvoo, 111. The French immigrants
purchased the village from the Mor
mons, who were then making their
first western migration, which ended at
Salt Lake City.

on Past of Female
Camorrist
Lawyer for Defense Scores the
Court for Ruling Against
Him
VITERRO, Italy, May I.—The trial of
Camorrist* for the killing of Gennaro
Cuoccolo and his wife wal resumed
Joday after an Interruption Of a week
due to the illhes« of a. Juror.
Maria Stendardo, the only woman
among the prisoner", was called for
examination. She admitted her early
career was not above rfproach, and
that her home had been the resort of
evil persons, hut denied that she had
guilty knowledge of the Cuoccolo kill
ing.
The woman's assertion that she had
been imprisoned 15 days before an
order of arrest wan drawn against h«r
led up to another application t>y a. law
yer for the defense for permission to
examine the warrants served by the
carablnleri. insisting that they had
been issued in blank. This request
had been twice refused and the court
today refuted to modify Its rulM*. In
disgust the lawyer shouted:
•Thio whnip trial Js an aberration."
Many documents were read today, lr'-^
eluding one showing payments t« ™
eelved by OenArro Ahattemaggio. th(*
informer, since hlq arrest. The letter
was intended by the defense to shotv
that sums of money received by him
Increased after he had denounced his
fellow prisoners.
At the conclusion of the reading En
rico Alfano, th« alleged head of tlie
camorra. turned to Abbatemaggio and
said:
"What a fine gentleman you ar«,"
The Informer responded:
"It was honest money."
