Her struggle was useless, the life-blood was pouring from a gaping wound in her throat.
That is the allegation made against Dominie Hall of the Methodist Church at Livermore, Ky., by Miss May.
A swell society woman of Buffalo broke away from her fastenings the other night, and after she had imbibed several drinks, she dropped into a resort where really good women do not go. There, she kept her little racket up, and as she was a liberal spender, no objection was made to anything she did. She capped the climax, however, when she climbed on a billiard table and danced the “buck” to music furnished by a negro banjoist, who was playing for the drinks. She finally got too gay and took a pair of curtains out of the place. For that, she was arrested, and the next morning, her husband got her out of court by paying a fine.
