Many are now in congress, and the re
election of these will not serve to swell

Woman Hurls Self

Hospital Window
Deaf and Blind Mute Believes
Hushand Untrue and Leaps
to Death From Coun
ty Building.
Believed to be Jeuloua of her hus
band, even though she never had
seen him, never hud heard him speak,
and never had spoken to him, Mrs,
Diana .Moore, E0, 20JJ North Twenty

Moore himself Is deaf and mute.
The strange story of the wife',
love was revealed In a report
made by James Allen, Investigator, to
his chief, County Attorney Shotwel!
Shows Jealousy. -
Mrs. Moore appears to have be
come obsessed with the Idea that her
husband was muklng love to other
women." Allen reported after a vis
it to the hospital.
"At times she would become so In
slslent that nurses would lead her
Into the women's ward and let her
feel her way from nook to nook, ever
seeking her mate. She never found
him In auch a predicament, but her
imagination played on.
"In the evening when Moore was
permitted to visit his wife It was a
touching scene. She. deaf, dumb and
blind, would sit there In the darken
ing dusk and hold his hand lovingly,
perfectly content, and he would re
turn her caresses. When the hour
for parting came, Mra. Moore would
cling to her husband, fling her arma
around his neck and display, at tlmea,
such violent objections to hla leaving
that it would become necessary to
lock her forcibly In a cell."
Body J-'niind.
Monday night Mis. Moore again be
gan imagining her huaband waa pay
ing uttention to other women, Al
lcii'a revort showed. She groped her
way to a window, and waa dead when
hospital attendants picked up the
