These tigni'es are trom | tin- n-'.i.u of K. l-\ Ul The Aftermath of Folly. Another chapter in the lamentable tragedy which shocked CoVlna on April '20, HtOf;, when Roland Htorrs, an accomplished musician and an Kriglislitnan with wealthy runnec- tions, WHS found doad from gutiHhot wounds in a bungalow in Monrovia, IH being painted in pathetic colors at the Los Angeles county hospital, where the pretty wife of Htorra is being treated for drug addiction and Insanity attendant upon it. Covina people will remember the lady. Hhe had many friends here at one time. The Los Angeles Kxaminer tells the stoiy in part as follows: MrH. Alberta J. Dabnoy Storrs, daughter of the late Commander Dabney, U. S. A., and a cousin of Mrs, Nannie Langhorne Astor, wifo of William Waldorf Astor, Jr., IB a prisoner in a cell of the insanity ward at the County Hospital, a victim of the morphine habit, and tortured by visions of the tragic death of her husband, whom she was accused of murdering. The young woman presents a pathetic picture. Once beautiful, she is now pallid and wasted. Her bright wit and charm have fled, and her mind is now a prey to delusions and a dread of tho power which has her enchained. Instead of the exhilarating social atmosphere of Washington arid New York, to which she waH accustomed, she is Hiirrounded by the insane, who chatter and howl and babble, according to the character of their afflictions.
