ROMANTIC GOTHAM SUICIDE

New York, Sept. 17--- Mrs. Olga Norr, the young and pretty widow of William Norr, a popular newspaper writer, was found dead in her bed this morning.
Clasped in her left arm, close to her breast, was a casket containing the ashes of her husband, whose body had been cremated after his death a month ago.
Unable to live without him, she had surrounded herself with those things which reminded her most of her husband, clasping the urn to her heart, had turned on the gas and joyfully waited for the end.

INSANE GOLDSEEKER

R.A. Gerose, an old Italian, who has been digging for buried gold at the foot of Main street for several weeks, was arrested yesterday, and will be tried for insanity.
While the old fellow was at work yesterday with his pick and shovel, a crowd gathered and began jeering him.
Business men complained of the disturbance, and Officer Young was sent out to arrest Gerose. The old fellow told the captain that he was a spirit and was prompted by the "Big Spirit" to hunt for gold along the banks of the Missouri river.
He sold out his banana stand and went to work. Several years ago Gerose's wife secured a divorce from him on the ground of non-support. She says he is insane.

LEFT MESSAGE TO ST. LOUISAN

Story Of A Shipwreck Told By A Note Found In A Bottle

Santa Barbara, Oct. 7--- A bit of terrible history seems to be told upon a slip of white wrapping paper, found in a bottle Saturday among the rocks near Santa Barbara Lighthouse, 4 miles above this place. The paper is stained with water and the writing is barely legible.

It reads as follows: "August 3, 1900-- Wreck on rocks near Point Conception, been floating on raft three days. If assistance comes at once we might be saved. If this is found too late for our rescue, please notify Doctor F.L. Cartrie, No. 521 Olive street, St. Louis, who knows whole party."

The paper bears the following signatures: Frances Davidson, John St. Clair, Isabel St. Clair, Gus Stone and Richard Sloane. The paper has every mark of being genuine. There is no ship's name given, but it is a fact there was heavy weather at sea about the date of the mysterious message. For weeks lumber was picked up this side of Point Conception, but no wreck has been reported.

A Republic reporter made inquiries at No. 521 Olive street last night and learned that Doctor F.L. Cartrie has no office or apartments in the building. Doctor F.L. Christie, who has an office at the address, knew none of the persons mentioned in the above dispatch. Doctor Cartrie is not known to physicians in St. Louis.

MADNESS AND SUICIDE

Topeka, Kan., Sept. 6--- Since the 8th day of last January, thirty-seven citizens of Shawnee County have been declared insane by the probate court, and since the 3rd day of May, fourteen other citizens have committed suicide.
Without attempting to account for this extraordinary record of madness and suicide, it may be proudly claimed that no other county in the Missouri valley can attempt to equal it.

GHASTLY WINDSOR REMAINS

New York, Mar. 26--- The work in the ruins of the Windsor hotel was continued with a full force of men today, and the piles of debris were heaped up faster than the carts could take them away. It is thought now that the foundations and cellars will be cleaned out by the end of this week.

The workmen came upon a human foot in a shoe near the Forty-Seventh street and Fifth avenue corner of the ruins this morning. The shoe was badly charred and shriveled, and it could not be told whether the foot was that of a woman or a child. A second fragment of a human foot was found late this afternoon near the Fifth avenue entrance to the hotel. There was very little of it, only the big toe and some tendons being left.

Near the place workmen found a pair of slippers. The ghastly relic was placed in a box and sent to the morgue. The unidentified bodies now number sixteen. The identified dead are eleven. According to police there are eighteen unknown dead, but the morgue authorities say that No. 17 is only an old shoe with what may be a part of a foot in it.
The morgue list makes the dead at present twenty seven.

DIMINUTIVE POLICEMAN

The passengers in a Washington street cable car witnessed a laughable sight yesterday evening about supper time, as the car stopped to unload at the Tenth street crossing.

A small boy was standing on the sidewalk decked out in a full policeman uniform. From the helmet that shaded his full, round face, to the diminutive club that swung by his side, he looked every inch a policeman.

As he stood there calmly surveying the boundaries of his beat, a boy much larger than himself slouched up to him and made a motion as if to do him violence. As quick as a wink the little officer swung his club and hit his foe a stinging blow in the face.
The big boy retreated and the crowd in the car applauded the little fellow for his bravery.
