Mrs. Juan'ila Leigh Sellm, who was murdered Saturday afternoon .In Hamilton. , \viis known along Broadway rss Nila Leigh, chorus girl and specialty dancer. Her last known address in New York was No. — West fj4th street, where she had a three-room apartment. According to (lie superintendent, E. J. Uiack, Miss Leigh, as ho knew her, lived there alone txctpl for her maid, Lydia Carr. and entertained few visitors. Irving \Vein, publicity dlrec'jr for Allamont Pictures, when interviewed by a reporter iu his rooms at the Cadillac Hotel late today, said that Nita Leigh had been used for "hits" and ns n dancing "double" for stars in a number ot recent pictures, including "N'lght Lifo" and "Boy, Howdy!" both of which have dancing sequences.

Mr. iprague bought Ihc wire and stuff, bored a hole through her bedroom floor, and fixed it all hisself." "Did anyone know Nita had aken this precaution to protect icrcelf?" Dundee asked.

The hell buzzeil In my room and I camo up to answer it, auci ila explained it to ills' Lois." So that wag why no attempt had been made to murder Nita while sho slept!

Thero was a knock at the door. "Como in! ... Al! finished', Carraway? . . . Fine!
