aftornoon by taking strychnine kept
In the house for rabbit poison. "I
urn tired of living; I want to go
whoro Orpha Is," a letter which she
had written it short time before ex
plained. Mr, Inman- Is prostrated
by grief, but states that his wire's
conversation slnco the loss of her
duughtor had In a senso prepared
him for tho tragedy. Mrs. Inman
was 41 years old, and was born In
Duffnlo, Missouri.
Mr. Inman had left for tho Pino
Tree mill lor a load or lumber, 'and
Mrs.J. O. Connnrn, who had been
calling ut the ranch, had taken her
departure, leaving her two children,
lJlck and Leora, playing In the In
man yard, when Mrs. Inman 'took a
three-grain capsule .or poison, the'
amount being more than 100 limes

cinal purposes. Shortly after 3:36
o'clock she called to the children,
telling them that sho was III, and
tho youngsters Immediately ran to
tho C. P. Decker ranch, returning

At first Mrs. Inman would give
no Information as to tho nature of
her trouble? but 'after, a sovcro con

strychnin. .Mrs. Decker adminis
tered nilDnnndTeggs its an jtntldote,
I than called Dr. J. C. Vandovert and

seemed that Mrs. Inman might have
a chance for recovery, but sho
quickly lost ntrongth and died Just

Surgical h6spl(nl at 5:30 o'clock.
The death of the daughter, which
prompted yesterday' tragedy, took

plications following u severe attnckJ
of Itiiluenzu. The mother had appar

which wag entrusted to Mrs. Docker
was sevornl pages In length, giving
detailed directions as to tho disposal
of her porsonnl effects and explain
