Midnight Mystery Unsolved.
That the Injuries sustained by Mrs.
John llearn, of D35 North Garfield ave-
nue, at an early hour Saturday morn
ing were not Inflicted by a burglar Is
the firm belief of the pollre. The
most probable theory of the mysterious
affair H that the woman, In returning
home from n neighbor's house, fell
against a post nnd sustained the In
juries which has shuts rendered her
The supposition Is that the mud
found on her clothing was gathered
In her fall, and the gash on her fore
head was Inflicted by her again falling
against the stairs In the house, nt
the foot of which she was found by
It was the latter who made an out
rry that attracted the passing street
car man. nnd Dr. D. W. Kvans, who
was called, notified the police of the
occurrence. Thu family are desirous
that the Incident be closed, but Mrs.
Hearn Is not yet out of danger nnd
may not recover.
The theory of robbery has been dis
pelled, as nothing Is missing, and the
published statement that the woman
was outraged Is unfounded sensational
ism. Mis. Henrn's condition was un
changed Inst night and It Is an even
chance that she will recover.

that an outrage was contemplated.
The (illlcers had visions of the Kilna
Hunt ease, whlrh Is still fresh In their
minds, and four of the mlmmetllatrly

diligent starch was mnde through the
stieets and fields around the bleaker,
but no trace of the alleged offenders
could be found.

hour and a half hard work gave It up.
