INTENED TO DROWN HERELF
Inmate Haskell Home Found Wandering The Streets Last Night.
The timely arrival of Patrolman Converse last night was the probable means of Having the life of Mrs. Eva Bordman, an inmate of the Haskel home, by preventing that lady fro throwing herself into the waters of the Kalamazoo river.
Late last night Officer Converse who was on duty in the western part of the city, was notified that an inmate of the home while in a demented condition had left the home an was wandering around somewhere in the city, and it was feared she would throw herself in the river as she ha at times been inclined to self destrution.
Officer Converse at once began a investigation and found the unfortunate woman clad in a thin dress an without shoes and stockings making her way towards the river. Whe discovered she was weary from he long walk and cold from exposure but resisted at first any efforts to tak her back to the home, mumbling in a low tone, "The river, I must get to the river, don't stop me until I reach the river." She was at once taken back to the home and is reported today to be recovered and to have not suffered an serious effects of her experience.
