Anna Brusso, aged 24, died at 3:15
this morning at Vatertown hospital,
as the result of cerebral congestion
resulting from what is declared by the
coroner's jury to have been an un
successful attempt at suicide by hang
ing. The woman hanged herself to a
bar of the window screen in her room
at the "hospital yesterday morning.
The iiur.e, Helen Hynes. entered the
;roora at 7:15 ytsterday morning and
found the patient almost dead. She
hastily, releascl hr and summoned
Dr. A. H. Doltear. '.' The physician re
stored respiration ar.d up to midnight
it seemed that ; the woman was im
proving and might' recover, although
she did not recover consciousness at
any time. The congestion in t tie
brain caused by the tight, noose about
, the neck, had, however, been loo great
to. make recovery possible, and she
passed away early in the morning.
Tried Sulfide Uriorr.
. " Evidence at the inquest showed
.that the woman, whos home is "at
Andalusrc, had twice berore a'tercpted
suicide, before she was admitted to
, the hospital. She once tried to drown
herself, and another time tried to end
her life by swallowing cartridges. She
' was committed to the hospital Sept.
5, this year.
The. verdict, while specifically stat
ing the attempt at suicide to have
been successful, concludes by statin?
mat tile jury further finds that no
blame whatsoever attaches to th hos
The jury in this case had as i
. foreman E. W. Schocde. chief clerk
of the hospital, and as members D. Y

custom is not apparent.

ASHION Continues to play on
the fancy of the woman beautiful Nearly
everv week brings varaiations of the sea
son's modes. Millinery is possibly the most
fickle of all. One week Paris says large hats
must goMthe next week Paris is fairly ablaze
- with small hats. The following week hats are
larger than ever, the week after Paris decrees
hats must be wide but low, the trimming very
low and drooping; from week to week, feathers,
quills, flowers, birds, plumes, buckles, ribbons,
velvets, silks and ornaments predominate ac
cording to the whim of Paris.
, All these changes Paris tells us in advance.
America catches the spirit and we interpret Paris
thoughts and from these thoughts come many
original creations. Have you ever thought that
out of the hundreds of hats you see here, hardly
any two are at all similar? You can buy your
hat here without expecting to see another one
Another thing about our millinery which is
much appreciated is the moderate pricing. So

extravagance. There are many excellent rea

REDFERN Corsets You Know
how some sculptors work first modeling the
figure, then when it is all rounded and perfect,
draping the clay clothes over it. If they did not make
the figure good to start with the clothes would have no
beauty. And dressmakers are a good deal like sculp
tors, just novV in the present fashions.
They must have something defi
nite to work on and that is why all
sensible women are taking more
thought for their corsets than ever be
fore. They do not wish corsets to mis
represent their good points but a
corset which will hide any little de
fects. That is why the Red fern is
such a favorite with leading dress
makers. They can make such per
fect models over a Redfern Corset
The subtle charm of a Redfern figure is
inexpressible whether the dress be a Dir
ectoire, a Princess or an Empire.
The loveliness of the form in a Redfern
Corset dwells in the memory. All pure
whalebone filled Redfern Corsets, $3.G0, $3.50, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00 to $10.00.

statistics submitted at. the last meet
ing of the directors and made public
today by Head Clerk C. W. Hawes.

bers of the society and their total In

The great increase in the number of
members iu the society is partly due
to the. fact that several new territor
ies have recently been' admitted to its
jurisdiction. There were 209 new
camps chartered during the last two
months, most of them being in the
doubt, however, as to what had hap
