Woman Cnta Her Throat with a Baior.
Takes to the Hospital.
Yesterday afternoon, Mrs, Charles
Wedchel. alias Jennie Roxelle. house
keeper for old "Pop" Cloodfcllow, cut
her throat with a dull kntfe In a little
frame house in the rear of Morrow'
hotel, on North Main street. The hor
rible deed was discovered about S
o'clock and the Inside of the squalid
buildlner in which It was done was hor
rible to see. The woman laid on- an
old couch, a bandage around her head
and an old apron thrown on her neck,
Atevery Inspiration of breath, a hissing;
sound wits heard, plainly telling that
the windpipe had been severed.
The gash is about two inches long
and Is just below the aesophagus or
Adam's apple, and looks as though the
knife used was dull, and the cut made
after persistent sawing. She could talk
with an effort and said she was craxy
when she did it and was sorry.
She had not been drinking anything
but the atmosphere of the room was
tainted with the odor of laudanum,
although the woman said she had not
taken any. She Is 39 year old and was
divorced from her husband some years
ago and since then Ivia kept house for
Her brother. Merrttt Roielle. of Wy
oming, was notified and came on the
scene about 4 o'clock. He Identified the
woman as hi sister. Dr. Koe was
called In after much delay and found
the woman in a comatose state. The
windpipe had been severed and there
was considerable . blood in her lungs.
The wound la very dangerous, but not
necessarily fatal, and she was taken
to the city hospital and made aa com
fortable as possible. Last night there
was a fair chance for recovery. This is
the second attempt he woman has
made at suicide.
