Mrs. u Frank Shanley, t sister-in-law; pi Ihtttd-f McDowell,1 put ah end - to. I Sier unnappy existence yesieraay ait irnoon by shooting herself just be oW the right ear. At least, that is Ihe supposition. Her body was found by Mrs. Frank Denny, as the latter carried her dinner to her rooni. Mrs. Shanley was also known as lLouie Neff. She was discovered ly Sng on the floor with her head in a tyool of blood, and the revolver by her side. The authorities were notified, and the police took charge until the coroner could be summoned from Hartford City. The coroner found .pinned to the lace curtain of a win dow 'in the room a note, a letter and the receipt from a Iiebeknh lodge in Chicago. The note read: r'This is to certify that I killed myself rather than give up my dead sister's home, which justly belongs Uo me. LOUIE NEFF." In the letter, which was directed to rii local undertaker, was a check for $100. The envelope did not contain anything else, but fragments of a nnote were found, which, when pieced .-together, showed that the check was fintended to covet burial expenses, .fit was reported to the coroner that ft here had been trouble, which began past Monday evening, when Mr. Mc (Dowell ad Mrs. Neff quarreled about fsome diamonds, valued at $1,500, Mvhieh had been the property of Mrs. McDowell prior to her sudden death, j five months ago. i Charles Henley, of Richmond, the sweetheart of Mrs. Neff, came to this city Monday, but both he and Mrs. ;NelT were compelled to leave the house, mid they went to a hotel. Af terward thev were arrested for un lawful association and both entered pleas of guilty and paid their fines. About this time the 'absence of the diamonds was noticed. Mr. jHenley left the city yesterday noon, .saying he was going to Muncie for the purpose of leasing at home for jMrs. Neff. He has not been seen .since, and the authorities are hunt ing for his address, thingiwr, perhaps ,he can throw some liirlit is to the .disposition, of the diamonds. Nellie Hntcbens, the last ixrson with Mrs. Neff, reports, meanwhile, that the diamonds had been buried in the grave of Mrs. McDowell, but a close "search of the lot failed to reveal their 'hiding place. The investigation is still proceeding, and the coroner will withhold his venlict until a more thorough search is made for the miss- ing jewels. I Thursday afternoon one of the lo cal National Batiks received a tele- jgram from the coroner of Blackford ecuty stating that Mrs. Neff, in a j letter to the coroner had lelt a check on the Richmond bank for $100 to cover her funeral expenses. The cor oner ..wan ted to know if the check was good. The bank in question tele graphed back that the woman had money on deposit, but that they would refuse to honor the check. Mrs. Lou Net! was formerly a well known character of Richmond, her name being Lou Collins. She lived here for many years with her sister, Mattie Collins, who died some months ago at Montpelier. Iou Collins was married to a rail road man named Neff, and follow ing his death she again married, this time to Frank Shanley, of Montpel ier. They separated, and following her sister's death Mrs! Shanley went to the home of David McDowell, as housekeeper. McDowell was her brother-in-law. Mrs. Shanley was always known as Lou Neff about Montpelier. During the past summer Mrs. Neff was in Richmond, remaining for sev eral months in a well known resort of the city. The Richmod police authorities have received no inquiry from Mont pelier as to Henley's whereabouts. Superintendent Gormon said that all he knew about Henley was what had appeared in the newspapers.
