Sad Ending Of A Young Wife and Mother

Body Of Mrs. E. S. Green Found Cold In Death

Goes Into The Hills To Bid Farewell To Life

The corpse of Mrs. E. S. Green, wife of the manager of the Yavapai
Club, lies in the Maus undertaking parlors, having been found in the
rocks north of town late last night. She was missed yesterday evening,
when her husband returned to his apartments in the Callery House, and
found a note bidding him good bye, and ending with the words, 'I blame
no one'. The horrified husband communicated the news to some friends,
and a searching party was organized, and several hours later the body
was found lying among the rocks across the creek, with the head and arm
resting upon a newspaper.

The unfortunate woman, who was only 22 years, has been in extreme poor
health for the past four years, and it was with the object of
benefiting it that Mr. Green recently removed here from California.
Despondent over her condition, there is no doubt that she was
temporarily insane when the idea of self-destruction entered her head,
as indicated by the note she left behind.

As the body was not brought to the morgue until 2 o'clock this morning,
the cause of death will be determined definitely at the coroner's
inquest this morning.

It is an extremely sad and pitiful case, and the heart of the community
will go out to the grief-stricken husband and his young son. No couple
were ever more happily married than Mr. and Mrs. Green, and those who
have known them for years past have commented upon their devotion to
each other. Under such circumstances the blow falls extremely heavy
upon the bereaved husband, who is prostrated with grief.
