and he placed his hand on her throat.
"Sho became quiet all of a sudden," said
In remorse and fear he sat beside her
for some time seeking to find a spark of

up hope and went to Aurora, whero he
purchased an anaesthetic. He returned
and, prostrating himself beside the girl's
body, swallowed It.
After a whllo he woke up. The girl
still lay very quiet beside him. Again he
made the trip to Aurora, says the note,

A statement in the young man's pocket
corroborated, according to the report, the
disjointed explanation of the killing of
Miss Florence Bentley, which Bahr gave
to two boys last night.
In the note Barr declared that Miss
Bentley's death was an accident and that
he nnver thought of such a thing as dolog
her any wrong. When he found that she
was killed he was overcome by grift and
This Is in accordance with the state

who were among those searching for him

Guy Stmonson, said that Barr suddenly
peered out at them from some bushes.
He told them brokenly, they said, that he
had attempted to put his arm around
Miss Bentley and that In a playful strug

tried to detain Barr, but he fled. Phy

neck was not broken.
The death of Miss Bentley took place

BARRR. Mass., May 2i.Jacoh A. nils,
author and social worker, died at his
summer home here todayt after a long
Mrs. Rlls and a son were nt Mr. Bits'
bedside when the end came.
Mr. Rlls was brought here about iwo
weeks ago from a sanitarium at Battle
Creek, Mich., where ho had been a pa
tient tor several months, taking treat
ment for heart trouble of long standing,
Jacob August Rlls became, through his
work In behalf of the poorer people In
New York, "tha most useful cltlien" of
tho metropolis, according to a tribute
once paid to him by Theodore Roosevelt,
his Intimate friend,
Rlls was tho thirteenth child of s Latin
teacher In Rlbe, Jutland, Denmark.
Ho was born in 1549. Protesting at the
literary career which his father had cut
out for him, young Rlls decided to work
with his hands and bocamo a carpenter's
apprentice. Tho vocation he had chosen
did not prevent him, however, from
falling In love with Elizabeth Nletson,
daughter of one of the richest men In
his native town. But she refused him,
and when RUs was 21 years old, having
learnd his trado, he embarked for New
York with only $40 in his pocket
Rlls led a varied career during the fol
lowing six years. Ho built miners' huts
In a Pennsylvania construction camp,
mined coal, made bricks, drove a team
and peddled flat Irons and books. At 27,
he accepted a beginner's place as a ro
porter for a New York news bureau. At
the very first ho made his most con
spicuous success In tho study of conditions
of the East Side of New York.
Ilnya Newspaper with Note.
With only J7S capital and notes for J675,
he succeeded In buying the "South Brook
lyn News," which was on the verge of
bankruptcy, and made such a success with
th property that ho was able to sell It
at a considerable profit a few years later.
He returned to Denmark and married the
girl who had refused him flhen ho was a
arpentcr's apprentice, This first wife died
In 1903, and two years later Rlls married
Mary Phillip of St. Louis.
As a reporter on tho New York Tribune
and later on the Now York Sun, Rlls took
up his real work In slum fighting. Whllo
attending to routing duty as a police re
porter, he worked day and night to arouse
tho popular need of Improved living con
ditions. One of tho first of his cam
paigns was against the Impurity of tho
city water, and it was his fight which
finally led to the purchase of tho Croton
watershed to assure safe drinking water
for New York.
