Fainting Bertha
Tools Police; Took
No Poison Sunday
After using a Stomach pump and ad
ministering antidotes to save "Fainting
Bertha" Liebecke from the supposed ef
fects of a quantity ot stychnlne she had
pretended to swallow with suicidal Intent,
police officer and surgeons discovered
half a day later that the woman had
not possessed any poison at the time she
wrote a farewell note, but merely had
an empty strychnine box.
Desk Captain W. K. Marshall at the
police station laughed heartily when he
was told ot Bertha's supposed attempt
on her life. He explained that she had
hsd some strychnine when she wss
brought to Jail, but that he had taken It
from her and returned the empty box.
Her pitiful farewell note and pretense
at dying, from poison were "faked" by
her to get sympathy, he thought.
She showed but slight Indications Mon
day of her latest stunt, although she was
limping somewhat from the effects of her
sttempt to set her clothes on fire after
the strychnine episode.
