There is no shadow of doubt that
Sarah Koten, the young Russian nurse
shot and killed Dr. Samuel Auspitz, on
June 7 last—shot him down as she
would a mad dog, which she declares
he was. And the crime was deliberate
and premeditate t «
For hours Sarah Koten sat patiently
in a doorway, awaiting the arrival of
the man whom she declares had ruined
her life, with a revolver in her hand
and murder in her heart. When an
officer arrived after the tragedy which
ended the life of Dr. Auspitz the girl
stood defiantly over her victim and
declared: "I killed him. I am ready
to pay the price." If she was insane,

the stork came recently to Sarah Kot- i

hands of the infant have built up a
barrier of public sentiment that towers
insurmountably between the mother
and the electric chair. And despite
the fact that her child is fatherless,
the illegitimate offspring of her en
forced association with Dr. Auspitz,
the young Russian girl loves it with

as a few months ago she was anxious
to die. Never before has the gift of
life seemed so precious, so intensely
beautiful: never has she reached so
passionately for it. And all because
her child has been born. The baby
which she thought would prove the
crowning disgrace of hpr experience

performed the miracle that has turned
the wretched girl into a happy woman,
proud and eager to live.

Why Colds Are Dangerous.
Because you have contracted ordi
nary colds and recovered from them
||; without treatment of any kind, do not
for a moment imagine that colds are
not dangerous. Everyone knows that
pneumonia and chronic catarrh have
their origin in ac ommon cold. Con-'
| sumption is not caused by a cold but
the cold prepares the system for the
reception and development of the
germs that would not otherwise have
found lodgment. It Is the same with
all infectious diseases. Diphtheria,
scarlet fever, measles and whooping
cough are much more likely to be con
tracted when the child has a cold. You
will see from this that more real dan
ger lurks in a cold than in any othef
of the common ailments. The easiest
and quickest way to cure a cold is to
take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
The many remarkable cures effected
by this preparation have made it a sta
ple article of trade over a large part of
the world. For Bale by Hays & Field
