Wanted Hang Herself.
Dallas, Tex., May (). Two farpirj
living near this city brought a woman
named Mary Curtis to town today and
turned her over to the authorities. One
qf tl;e men stated that the woman enter
ed his house iast mghj; wlipe faej ;vej"e at
supper, and, upon being invited, sat
down to partake of the evening meal with
the family She suddenly left the table
after min.ciug a little, aqd said she was
going to hang herself. The host watched
l;er movements while she procured a ropo
and threw it o?ei a Jlml pf a tree in the
yard, adjusted a noose, and every action
indicated that she intended to carry out
her threat of eif-detruction. He then
called a neighbor to his assistance, and
together they brought her to . this city.
The woman told the authorities that she
was not insane, but that she murdered
her child before she came to Dallas and
that she wanted to hang herself for it.
She hails from Kansas Cfiy.

of hi wlfj on Vl arrival, she being a
prisoner with the Mormon eiders. She
finally escaped, going to Wyoming, where
she had been told her husband was. After
a long search she returnted to Englatd.
Craddock, after searching in vain, having
been told his wife was dead, remarried,
shortly after removing to this state, set

and wife met for the first time in twenty
four years. After her long search, wife
number one found Craddock. living with
wife number two and a large family of
children. After several meetings, wife
number one relinquished all her claims,
and left for her English liome. Craddock
