Word for word, th above waa the letter
written by Mis Bennle Talbot about :90
o'clock Tuesday afternoon. In the home
of her friend, Mts. R. Dunn, at 4214 Burt
After sealing and laying the letter on the
table this apparently flippant but discour
aged girl of 22, went upstair to th bed
room of her friend, took the tatter' revol
ver from under a pillow, placed herself
crosawaya of th bed and, with the munle
of th pistol In her mouth, pulled th trig
ger. On shot waa sufficient, for when the
revolver wa taken from her hand later
four chambers of the five In th weapon
were still loaded. Having fired the ahot,
Mis Talbot had crossed her two hands on
her breast, th right one still Holding onto
Verdict at the Inquest.
These salient facta Were developed at the
inquest held at Heafey V Heafey's under
taking rooms Thursday morning and the
coroneT's Jury returned thl verdict:
We, th Jury, find that the deceased.
Miss Ben Talbot, cam to her death by
committing suicide by using a 38-callbre
revolver: and we further Dnd the cause of
suicide to be despondency.
The Jury waa composed of W. W. Wilson,
G. W. Melaon, A. Rubensten, William
Thomas, E. Mots, Joseph Teahon.
Miss Talbot had known Just where to lay
her hands on Mrs. Dunn's revolver, be
cause she had been a frequent visitor at
the Dunn home. If ah had sought for It
on the prevloua Friday, however, she would
not hav found It. Mr. Dunn testified
that on that day Mr. Lamoreaux had
telephoned her to "put everything away, as
Bennle ia liable to do something."
Mra. Lamoreaux I th mother of Doug
la Palmer Lamoreaux, the young man
who has been keeping company with Miss
Talbot and who Wednesday told the cor
oner's Jury that he had been engaged to
her for about a month.
On th Wednesday evening preceding her
death Mlsa Talbot had called young Lam
oreaux on the 'phone at hla home, becauae,
a be put It, "she thought I had been act
ing funny lately." During that conversa
tion he told Miss Talbot he thought they
could not be happy together, that he "did
not love her well enough that way." She
felt ao badly over th reault of her talk
with Lamoreaux that on the following
evening the young man got hla mother to
accompany him to th room of Miss Tal
bot and her mother, at 2110 Douglas atreet.
Then they took her home with them for th
night, after ah had dumbly prostrated her
self on, the bed . In her own " room, and
she slept with Mrs. Lamoreaux,' or In her
Warm Mrs. Dsss,
It waa on the day following that the lat
ter called up Mra. Dunn and warned her to
put away everything that might be dan
gerous. Mrs. Dunn testified she did hide
a bottle of carbollo acid, also her gun, a
she continually called it, under the aprlngs
of a couch downstair. Then the storm
blew over and on Monday night last the
revolver waa resurrected and taken up
stair to It accustomed place, Mrs. Dunn
explaining that she lived alone and had It
On Monday evening th Talbot girl wu
at th Dunn home and complained of being
sick. Mrs. Dunn ministered to her, but
saw nothing In the girl's manner to Indi
cate that aha should be watched. 8o Mrs.
Dunn went away to her work on Tuesday
morning, and that wa the last tlm she
saw th girl alive.
During th testimony cf Mrs. Dunn and
if Horace B. Barson it waa evident that
not all th vital history of th girl' life
was being developed, but no one seemed to
care to prob any deeper than waa neces
sary. Assistant County Attorney Coad
was lenient In hi questioning, th more
so, perhaps, because Mrs. Dunn waa weep
ing and hysterical, and at one point
swtoned for a moment or two In the wit
pess chair. -
Barson had met the girl, as h first
spoke It, last Sunday night, but a moment
afterward he could not recall when he
had met her last, and had no sort of idea
as to where the meeting occurred. He left
the aland still forgetting.
He la "Barry."
This young man Is the "Sarry" who U
requested to sell the pin and chain, llj,
like all th rest, wa familiar with th
revolver, a the whole bunch had been
firing It from the porch of the Dunn home
on New Year' eve.
While th testimony of th witnesses was
being heard in the rear room of th cor
oner undertaking parlors neither the
father, mother or brother of Miss Talbot
was present. The mother and the brother
are prostrated, and the father la In little
better condition, having been forced to re
tire from the scene of .th Inquest before
the testimony began. Th time of th fun
eral haa not yet been decided on, but the
present plan I to hold It tomorrow aftei
noon. i ,
While the Inquest was proceeding the face
of the dead girl, surrounded by an aureole
of black hair, could be seen In Its silent
majesty a th Juror and two or three
witnesses were taken to the bier to .be
After all other witnesses had been heard
Coroner' Physician Dunn outlined the na
ture of th wound. He also testified to
th presence of a tumor, or some similar
swelling, which lie said might possibly
hav been a contributing cause to the de
spondency under which the girl labored un-avalllngly.-

BANE ON THE PENCIL HABIT
School Authorities Try to Prevent
Contagion) of Disease Among
Publlo school authorities have again
taken up the subject of the Indiscriminate
uses of lead pencils by the pupils.
When Willie Jones, after putting his pen

In th next seat, germatic disease Is liable
to be spread.
The Farnam Street school has an excel

rows corresponding to the rows of desks In
the room. Each pupil has a separate pocket

In some of the schools the pencils are

but a disinfectant and disagreeable to the
If there Is an epidemic of any sort greater
precaution than usual Is exercised to keep
pencils in a sanitary condition.
"The teachers are doing all they can,"
says a board member. "Will the parents
try to use their Influence in this direction
and also see that each child really starts
for school with a clean face and hands?"
The marble mania, which has started
early this season. Is something that causes
much annoyance to the teachers.
lt.biings soiled hands into the school
room, makea the children tardy, causes the
child of refined parents to associate with
the street gamin.
"Why lay so much stress on the teachers
doing all the work to keep the child healthy
In mind and body?" suggests a teacher.
"Surely there la much for the parents to
do. W only ask that parents and teachers
may unite upon some common ground to
work out this all-Important problem."

WHY THE STUDENTS LAUGHED
Mis Hnghe Relates Interesting Ex
perience In Her Work a Mis
Miss Edith Hughes, lecturing in Omaha
at present under the Home Missions Board
of the Presbyterian church, relates an in
cident of her work that I of peculiar In
terest.. "I was speaking to the students of the
Tuskulum, Tenn., college about condltiona
among the Mexicans of the southwest
where I spent much time," sjiys Miss
Hughes, "and I observed a tendency to
ward merriment among the students. I
wondered what I had done or said to pro
voke amusement and then my eye chanced
to fall upon a young man In the rear of the
audience who, I recognised aa a Mexican.
To avoid saying anything that might hurt
his feelings, I changed my line of talk
somewhat and related an incident that
had come under my own observation In
New Mexico. Three young Mexicans,
taken from their native homes of poverty
and unreflnement, were Induced to attend
the mission school. I told how they pro
gressed In book learning and moial con
duct and finally they left the little mission
school and went east to attend a seminary
where they might prepare themselves for
"All the time I was relating this exper
ience, though, I could still observe that
manifestation of amusement. The young
Mexican seemed most amused off all and
the situation wa becoming oppressive to
me. Once I thought of leaving the ros
trum, for I could not Imagine any reason
for this merriment. When I hud concluded
this young Mexican came up and intro
duced himself to me.
" 'I am one of those three boys and the
other two are also here,' he said.
"It was, of course, a revelation for me,
for I really did not know the school to
which they had gone."
