TRAGEDY ENDS GREAT CAREER
rVoman Dead at Indianapolis Had
Risen From Peatant to Emi
Indianapolis, Ind. Tho mysterious
crime which brought to an untimely
close the brilliant and promising car

apolls, has brought Into general prom

ability wisely guided In a congenial
'direction and persoverlngly nurtured
In the face of the obstacles which a
great many people of naturally strong
Intellect would find insurmountable.
This unfortunate lady had a won
derful career, now closed so abruptly
and tragically. Originally a German
peasant,, she nearly starved herself to
save her passage money to America
and on landing here could not speak
a word of English. She did general
housework In the family of an In
dianapolis doctor, denying herself
everything but bare necessities to save
money for a college course. She dis
tinguished herself at tho Indiana Modi
cat college, becoming Instructor in
bacteriology and pathology even be
fore her graduation, which took place
there In 1904, when she had reached
the age of only twenty-eight. A truly
marvelous achievement for the Ger
man peasant girl, fighting her way sin-gle-handed
and only a few years be
fore Ignorant even of the language.
Doctor Knabe was In charge of tho
college laboratory during the year fol
lowing her graduation, and then be
came assistant pathologist In the lab
oratory of hygiene for tho state board
of health, where she Instituted tho
first bacteriological work done there.
She left In November, 1908, to set up

Mrs. Hector's Reception
By JOHN CH
On the way down to Leamington on
the morning train Mrs. Ilibberd Hec
tor refreshed her over-taxed memory
by reference to a notebook. As a
prominent official of the State Union
of Mothers' Clubs she was booked to
address the Mothers' club of Leam
ington at thrco o'clock and a brief
talk with her secretary on tho eve of
departure had left her with a very
haiy Idea of the day's programme.
The notebook bore pencil marks
that primarily must havo held somo
coherent meaning to the scribbler
Mrs. Ilibberd Hector, herself- but
now that excellent lady could not
mako head or tall of tho frantic
scrawls. Occasionally she Jerked but
a head merely to discover that It bore
uo relation to any other head or tall
on the page and Anally In despair she
turned the' book upside down and
found that her hieroglyphics 'really
had some meaning after all.
"Puhncyl" she beamed through her
lorgnette at the page. "Now, let mo
see It is arranged that I shall take
luncheon with Mrs. Armstrong good
old name, too. I wonder If she's re
lated to' the Chesley Armstrongs?
Then I am to address tho club mem
bers at three o'clock, hold a reception
from four to flvo and take the six-ten
train home. A busy day! Now, for
the names of the committee so that
I shall have no difficulty In remember
ing thorn when 1 am Introduced; it
makes better feeling."
"Mrs. Armstrong, Mrs. Conrad Stod
daid, Mrs. Daniel Boucher, Mrs. Case
Wayland," Bhe repeated over and over
again until the brakeman Jarred the
door open and announced "Leaming
It was a sleepy, sunshiny Juno day
and down the crooked length of
Leumington street tho merchants sat
before their shops and talked about
the weather and the fishing and the
tides. The summer boarder season
hnd not yet opened and business was
dull. There was one stuffy looking
stage at the railroad station and Mrs.
Ilibberd Hector had glanced once
within its musty depths and with a
shrug of her shoulders decided to
walk down the long bill Into the vil
lage. Her dignity was offended that the
Mothers' club had not sent some sort
of an equipage to meet her train and
then It suddenly and unpleasantly oc
curred to her that she had neglected
to send word naming her train. She
picked up tho skirt of her summer
silk, opened her parasol and after In
quiring the way she walked down to
the bay, blue and shimmering under a
cloudless sky, and so reached a large,
white house set In the midst of green
lawns, very cool and pleasant and
comfortable looking. 8he rang the
bell and then watted with growing
Impatience while the minutes passed.
No, one answered her summons.
As she sank exhausted into a porch
chair a double-seated carriage drove
Into the yard and the solo occupant,
evidently a farm hand, looked curi
ously at her. He drew up before the
door. "You looking for Mrs. Arm
strong?" he asked.-'
"Yes," replied Mrs. Ilibberd Hec
"Well, she ain't to home. She's
gone down to the Point with the chil
drenthe Mother's club Is having a
picnic down there."
Mrs Hibberd Hector thought rap
Idly; It was possible that the club
had changed Ub plan and was to en
tertain her at the Point that would
bo very pleasant Indeed on this ideal
day. With a sudden return of enthu
siasm In the day's project she beamed
upon the man.
"1 wonder If you couldn't drive me
down to the Point?" she said sweetly.
"Mrs. Armstrong expects me, but I
didn't send word what train I would
take, so there was no one to receive
me I have to return to town on the
"Yes, ma'am," ho said willingly
and helped her Into the vehicle.
As they drove through shady woods,
fragrant with sassafras and a hun
dred othor elusive odors, Mrs. Ilibberd
Hector settled back in her seut and
once more referred to her notebook
She had chosen for the subject of her
address- a toplo that was near her
enthusiastic heart Mrs. Hibbard Hec
tor had nover been a mother but she
knew Just how children should bo
trained to get the best out of them
and to Insuro their getting the best
out of lire. "How to bold your child's
love," wub to be her subject and Mrs.
Hector had carefully and conscien
tiously studied over the matter of
prvcnting tho'country children from
flocking to the cities, and she win
quite icudy to tell the Mothers' club
or Leumington -all about it.
Suddenly Iho road emerged Troni
tho wood and dipped down into a hol
low between the bluffs where there
was a white sandy beach and tho bay,
"It's bard to turn around down
there, ma'am, If you don't mind get
ting out," suggested tho driver apolo
getically and Mrs. Hector alighted
and pressed a crackling greenback
Into his reluctant hand and followed
his direction down tho road to the
beach where he said she would find
tho Mother's club In session. Tlicro
were voices and much laughter and
the tinklo of crockery mingled with
the rush of the incoming tide as Mrs
Hibberd Hector In all the glory of her
summer apparel went down the road
to the beach. All at once she paused
iiiul drew Into tho shadow of a beach
plum tree and stared nmaccdly.
If this was a meeting of tho Moth
ers' Club It was informal Indeed!
Scnttored over the sands or playing
in tho water were a scoro of children
in bathing suits, happy looking, sun
burned healthy looking boys and girls
Further up the beach In the shndo ot
several wind-blown ccdarB, a dorcn
women were engaged In spreading a
picnic meal. They, too, were garbed
most Informally In bathing dresses ot
ovcry description and they were gay
and laughing and thinking of every
thing else except Mrs. Hibberd lice
tor when she walked Into their midst,
charmingly gowned, smiling tolerant
ly. yet with an ntr of offended dlgnltj
pervading her wholo bearing. Never
before had this high official of the
State Union ot Mothers' clubs been
so received when sho honored an or
gnntntlon with her presence
"Mrs. Armstrong?" she asked sweet
ly. From the group of startled women
there came n tall, well-proportioned
oung woman, with a calm eelf-pos
sussed manner and steady gray eyeB
that searched Mrs. Hibberd Hector's
handsome countenance with puzzled
Inquiry in their depths. Bhe wore her
bulbing dress with unconscious grano
and she held out a slender, sun-tanned
hand to the visitor.
"How do you do?" she asked courte
ously. "I am Mrs. Hibberd Hector," ex
plained that lady. "I rather expected
n different sort of a reception, ym
know, dear Mrs. Armstrong. More for
mnl, you know!"
"Of courso you would have received
it, Mrs. Hector," said Mrs. Armstrong
quietly, "if wo had expected you to
day. I assure you we have made ev
ery preparation for tomorrow."
"Tomorrow?" repeated Mrs. Hib
berd Hector, feeling for her notebook
and adjusting her lorgnette. "I'm sure
tho dnte was for today tho twenty
eighth dear me. I can't tell whethet
this Is an eight or a nine so provok
ing!" Sho peered nearsightedly al
her own hieroglyphics.
"Your date was for tho twcnty-nlntb
I am so sorry you have been incon
vcnlenced, Mrs. Hector; but It Is nol
too late for us to arrange tho meeting
for this afternoon. There are some
details of the entertainment that will
be lacking but our welcome will be
Just as cordial and we shall enjoy
your talk. Let me present the mem
bers of the Mothers' club."
Mrs. Hibberd Hector graciously
shook hands with the members of the
Mothers' club and remembered the
names, too. They were a hearty,
healthy, handsomo looking lot of
women, too, she admitted to herself,,
and they looked as if they had al
ready solved somo of tho problems
over which she still knitted bet
brows. When It was suggested thai
they ull return to Leamington and
hold the meeting as planned, and at
worthy v of their honored guest, Mrs.
Hibberd Hector vetoed the Idea and
offered to talk to them there on the
beach after the luncheon was served.
It was an unusual occasion for
Mrs. Hibberd Hector and sho gradu
ally unbent to meet these simple
hearted, well mannered women on
their own ground. She was persuad
ed to don an extra bathing dress that
had been brought along and she, too,
sported In tho rising tide and became
intimately acquainted with more chil
dren In an hour than she had ever
dono In her life before Mrs. Hibberd
Hector submitted to being ducked un
der the water; Mrs. Hector played
duck-on-a-rock and learned to skip
fiat stones on tho water.
All this happened after the tooth
some picnic meal where there were
clams and green corn roasted then
and'there and all sorts of good things
prepared by these women who knew
how to be mothers In so many differ
ent ways that Mrs. Hibberd Hector's
theories were all knocked askew.
After the meal had been disposed of
and all of them, mothers nnd chil
dren and honored guest, bad dis

dripping company and seated them
selves on tho beach.
"Now, Mrs. Hector," said tho presi
