Hubauii, aged 18 years, died at the
city hospital at noon today from tha '
effects of a dose of carbolic acid taken
with suicidal intent, because her
parents objected to her receiving
the attontioue of Fred Winkler. The
Ilnbach's are comfortably situated
and lavished everything that money j
could buy on their daughter. She was j
decidedly pretty and accomplish od and
consequently had many admirers. H- r
parents did not object nntil they learn
ed that her affection for Winkler hail
ripened into lova and the couple
were seriously couiempiaiing main
To this the girl's parents objected on
auconnt of her youth and wheu she re
fuse I to be guided by their choice they
issued peremptory orders that Winkler
should call at the house no more.
Winkler ceased calling at the house,
but the lovers frequently met
clandestinely. They arranged to
meet yesterday and when she was
prepared to go out bet father insisted
that she should remain at home. She
importuned him to allow 1 e: to go. bnt
he was firm, and the girl was obliged
to remain at home. All night and far
into tho morning she was hoard crying
During the temporary absence of her
parents this morning sho seut her little
brother Joseph to a drug store for 10
cents worth of carbolio acid, which
she said she wanted for disinfect
ing purposes. She attempted to
drink the contents of the vial
at ono swallow, but was unable to do
so, and fell to tho floor unconscious.
She was taken to tho city hospital
where she died without having re
gained consciousness. Her parents aro
prostrated and it is feared the shock
may kill tho girl's mother.
