comfortable, with big bay windows
into which the sun may pour Iib
healing rays. Wide porches almost

Sixteen persons, one of whom may

posed, by eating a cocoanut pudding
at -i restaurant recently opened in I
that city by James H. Crooks. The
person in n dangerous condition is
Miss Elizabeth Fletcher. Among the
sufferers is Crook's wife.
The pudding, with a sauce of
whipped cream, was served Thurs

The first to notice the effects was
Henry M. Leonard, Treasurer of the
Columbus Trust Company. All the
rictlms required doctors' help.
Crooks recently had trouble with
his bakers, who went on strike, and
an attempt was made to connect the
labor difficulties and the poisoning.
But Crooks said he was convinced
the poisoning was caused by the
whipped cream and that the strike
had nothing to do with it. Physi
cians also' said there had been some
thing wrong with the cream.

Despondent Woman Blames
FRIEND OF MRS. STETSON.
Miss Marion K. Stephens Ends Life
With Gas After Struggle Between
Loyalty to "Healer" and Church.
Efforts to Conceal Case.
New York, April 20. After every ef
fort had been made to conceal the fact.
It has been learned that Miss Marion
Stephens, tortured by her struggles
with her sense of duty and her loyalty
to Mrs. Augusta Stetson, the excom
municated leader of the First Church
of Christ. Scientist, and one of the most
successful "healers" of the church,
killed herself with gas last Saturday
night In the npartments of her sister,
Mrs. Weeks, at 520 West One Hundred
and Eleventh street. Her death was
reported to Coroner Felnberg, but so
far he has taken no action.
"Threo days ago," said an Intimate
friend of Miss Stephens, "Marion came
to nie and said, 'I cannot stand this
awful pressure any longer. It follows
me day and night. I love the church,
but something keeps holding me to
Mrs. Stetson. If I cannot break up
that Influence one way or the other I
shall take gas ami kill myself.' "
Though the death of Miss Stephens
was reported as a suicide, and there
fore lu ordinary course of events a
coroner's permit would be needed be
fore her body could be removed, It was
said that her body had been removed
to her home, which was in Tonnwandn.
for burial. Coroner Feinberg's clerks
said that he had Issued no permit.
Following the death of Harry P.
Toler, the Wall street broker, athlete
and Christian Scientist, whose suicide
shocked the whole Christian Science
community a year ago and was .attrib
uted to what Sirs. Stetson's opponents
called "malicious aulmul magnetism,"
the suicide of Miss Stephens created a
tremendous sensation when it was
whispered about the church. The of
ficers of the church and the few re
maining adherents of .Mrs. Stetson whn
worship In the Central Park West
temple united In endeavoring to keep
the news from the papers.
Miss Stephens wns one of the first
prominent members of the First church
to rebel against Mrs. Stetson, but later
resumed her allegiance to the deposed
leader. She took no active part In the.
battle Iu the church which resulted In
the deposition of Mrs. Stetson by
Mother Mary Glover Baker Eddy. Miss
Stephens was very much distressed by
the schism in the church and went to
Elmira, N. Y.. where she lived with
