The home of Samuel L Clomens (Mark Twain), In Redding, was Kid' dened Friday morning by a tragedy that coat the life of the famous hum orist s younger daughter, Miss Jean Clemens.. The young woman, was found by a maid, lying dead In her Data tuo in whlcn she bad drowned during a period of unconsciousness following an attack ot epilepsy. Miss Clemens, who was about 28 yearsvof age, had been secretary to her father since Mrs Isabella Lyon-Ashcroft, the humorist's former social 'eecreta7 relinquished that position several months ago, and since the departure of her elder sister, Mrs Osstp Gabrilo witsch, to Europe, bad been the only member of the family except Mr Clemens, residing in Redding. Al though grief-stricken. Mr Clemens is sued a brief statement shortly before noon to-day, as follows: "My daugh ter. Jean Clemens, passed from this life suddenly this morning at half- past seven o'clock. All the last half of her life she was an epileptic but she grew better latterly. For the last two years, we considered her prac tically well but she was not allowed to be entirely free. Her maid, who uas served us 28 years, was always with her when she went to New York on shopping excursions and such things. She had very few convul sions in the last two years and those she had were not violent. At 7.30 this morning a maid went to her room to see why she did not ccnie to breakfast, and found her in her bath tub drowned. It means she had a convulsion aniTcould not get out. She had been leading a very active life. She spent the greater part of her time looking after a farm which I bought for her and she did much of my secretary work besides. Last night she and I chatted later than URual in the library and she told me all her plans about the housekeeping, for she was aiso my housekeeper. I cbell of South Britain os Christmas day. ' - .

She was all I had left, except Clara, who married Mr Gabrilowitsch late ly and has just arrived in Europe." Miss Clemens is believed to have been dead about an hour when her body was discovered. She arose about seven o'clock and went alone to the bath room adjoining her sleeping apartment. Half an hour later Miss Clemens' maid went to the young woman's dressing room to assist her in preparing her toilet. She failed to find her there and getting no rer sponse when she called to her, en tered the bath room, wnere she round her lying-in the tath tub, apparently unconscious. The maid immediately summoned others in the house to her assistance and while efforts were be ing made to revive Miss Clemens, a telephone message was dispatched to the home of Dr jfirnest h. Smith, on Redding Ridge. Dr Smith drove to "Stormfield" with all haste, reaching there within 15 minutes after he re ceived the call. He saw at once that the young woman was apparently beyond human aid, but made heroic efforts to restore heart action by means of artificial respiration. For nearly an hour the physician and maids worked oven, the lifeless form, and then, reluctantly, admitted that their task was hopeless. Dr Smith said he believed that Miss Clemens had been dead nearly an hour when he reached "Stormfield." Dr Smith, as medical examiner for the town of Redding gave a certificate of acci dental death. Miss Clemens had long been subject to attacks of epilepsy, as indicated in tne statement given out by her father. It is the opinion of the medical examiner that she had such an attack immediately after en tering her bath and became uncon scious and while in that condition was drowned in the partly filled tub. When the news of Miss Clemens death became known throughout the country, scores of messages of sym pathy and consolation were received at "Stormfield" oy telephone and telegraph. Mr Clemens returned on Monday from his winter vacation in Bermuda. The author comp'ained of nain in his left breast. Since the dpath of his close friend, Henry H. Rogers, the financier, Mr Clemens has felt much, depressed and the death of his daughter, his friends fear, will nrove a serious shock to the aged writer. Miss Jean Clemens was one of the two surviving daughters of Mark Twain and was th,e one most intimately associated with his recent literary work. The other daughter, Clara L married the Russian pianist, Ossip Gabrilowitsch, last October, and only two weeks ago bade ner fa ther good-by and departed with her husband for Europe. This left Miss Jean as the remaining member of the family with Mr Clemens at the family homestead in this place. The daughter was the constant' compan ion of her father, acting to some ex tent as his assistant secretary and 'iterary amanuensis. She was a young woman of varied accomplishments, having travelled widely and lived for a time in Germany. ' Her literary tendencies followed those of her fa ther, and she to some extent resem bled him in personal appearance. Her tastes were literary rather than so cial. Her devotion for her father was was shown only the day before her death when ;shP personally tele phoned the Associated Press a state ment fi$m her father, humorously denying the statement that he was dying. Miss Clemens at that time spoke affectiona'elv of her father's present good health and made cheery reference to the happy family con dition at the holiday season. Dan bury News. Nichols.
