Cora Krout assaulted with vitriol - THE VICTIMJNEALOUSY Cora Krout Was Attacked on...
THE VICTIMJNEALOUSY Cora Krout Was Attacked on the Streets of York By Another .Woman. ASSAILANT NOT YET CAUGHT. Miss Cora Krout, a 20-years-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Krout. of South street, will probably be disfigured for life as a result of an attack of jealousy on the part of Mrs. F. L. Carteledge of York, Pa. The Krout family lived in York-before coming to Indiana, and Miss Cora holds a position there. It appears that Mrs, Carteledge was jealous of the girl for some reason and, it is alleged, on Saturday met her on the street and threw a quantity of vitriol in her face. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Mrs. Carteledge, but up to Sunday night she had not been found. The woman is rather prominent in York and an effort waa made to suppress the story. The Carteledge home was barred, on Monday,and relatives and friends of the woman would give no clue that would lead to her whereabouts. The Carteledge lawyer is making effort to have the case dropped, but District Attorney Glessner is firm in insisting on prosecuting the woman. Miss Krout graduated from the York high school several years ago. Her mother was visiting her at the time the attack was made. Mr. Krout is foreman at the Carriage factory in this place.
