A SUDDEN IMPULSE. It Causes a Philadelphia School -Teacher to End Her Live-For No Known Reason Miss Emma Garrett Throws Herself from a Fifth-Story Window in Chicago and is Killed.
Chicago, July 19.- Miss Emma Garrett, principal of the home for the deaf children at Philadelphia, entered the Briggs house about 6 o'clock Tuesday evening. With Miss Garrett were her sister, Mary S. Garrett, also a teacher, and Miss Viola Wilcox. After having registered the ladies were shown to room 500 on the fifth floor and on the east side of the hotel fronting the court. this court is of heavy glass set in iron framework and extends from above the second floor. Its dimensions are about 20 by 20 feet. All seemed in the best of spirits.
While Night Clerk Henritze was working at his desk he was startled by hearing a heavy crash on the glass court over his head. The shock excited guests who happened to be in the corridor and the clerk darted upstairs to investigate. Screams came from room 500. Henritze burst open the door and found Mary Garrett and Miss Wilcox hysterically shrieking: "Oh, she has killed herself." The big window on the court side was open. The clerk looked out. Away below him lying on the shattered glass roof was the bleeding body of Emma Garrett. She had entered her room with her sister and friend seemingly in a quiet and happy condition of mind. The ladies set away their valises and removed their bonnets. Miss Mary was seated in a chair and said something about the educational congresses in session at the art palace. Miss Emma walked over to where her sister was and sat down beside her. She glanced up and saw the open window. Without a word she arose and walked to it. Her two companions noticed nothing peculiar, they say. As she reached the window she laid her hands upon the sill. In an instant her face was changed. The dark eyes seemed to stand out from their sockets. With a convulsive clutch upon the wooden casing and full in the gaze of the two horrified observers with almost lighting-like swiftness the crazed woman sprang through the window. Those she had left behind were too frightened for a moment to stir from their seats. The woman had gone to her death headforemost. Her body had partially turned as she fell, for the side of the head, as well as the top, was crushed to an almost shapeless mass. From the way she had struck death must have come on the instant. The face was unrecognizable. Besides the broken skull the neck had been dislocated. Blood had flowed in streams from her ears and mouth, staining the black silk dress she wore and making the sight a ghastly one. There was nothing that could be done other than to remove the body to the morgue at 73 Fifth avenue. In the short space of half an hour the woman who had reached the hotel in apparently perfect composure and happiness lay mangled in the dead house. When the sister and Miss Wilcox recovered sufficiently to speak they said that no reason could be given for Emma Garrett's terrible act. She had never been afflicted with anything like insanity nor did it exist in the family. The ladies had come to Chicago for the purpose of attending the educational congresses and visiting the world's fair. The hotel people seem to think that the sight of the open window might have given the woman, tired and excited by the long journey, the inexplicable impulse to throw herself out of it.

GILBERT -- Granny Gilbert Dead | America's Oldest Actress Is Stricken by Apoplexy
Chicago, Dec. 2.—Mrs. George Henry Gilbert, the oldest actress on the American stage, died in her rooms at the Sherman House to-day, shortly after she had suffered a stroke of cerebral apoplexy.
The apoplectic stroke came while Mrs. Gilbert was alone with her maid. The maid first sought to lift her onto a couch, but realizing that Mrs. Gilbert's attack was a grave one, the maid left her where she had fallen and summoned the house physician. Dr. J. T. Owen, who responded immediately to the call. He pronounced the condition of Mrs. Gilbert critical.
Other physicians were summoned, but they were unable to arouse Mrs. Gilbert from the death-like stupor into which she had sunk, and death came without Mrs. Gilbert regaining consciousness. She lived only an hour and a half after she was stricken.
The end came without a struggle. There was a smile upon the aged woman's face as she breathed her last. About her, with tear-dimmed eyes, stood her maid, Mrs. Margaret Sweeney; Harry Powers, Frank E. Aiken, manager of the theater, and the attending physicians.
Three hours before her death the noted actress had risen and declared she intended to devote the day to shopping.
"I must get out and buy Christmas presents for the child actors and actresses of New York," she said to her maid.
"But, Mrs. Gilbert,'" expostulated' the maid, "it is snowing."
"What does a girl of my age care for snow?" replied Mrs. Gilbert, and she went to take her usual cold bath—a bath as cold as the natural temperature of the water would afford. As she emerged from the bathroom, she said to her maid:
"Please call for Dr. Owen; I feel ill. The lights look strange, and it is growing dark."
A spasm seemed to seize Mrs., Gilbert, and suddenly she became unconscious. Just as the clocks were striking 12 Mrs. Gilbert died.
The attack is said by the attending physician to have been due directly to the shock of a cold water bath. Mrs. Gilbert's Chicago engagement In Clyde Fitch's play "Granny" began at Powers' Theater last Monday, and until to-day the venerable actress had appeared to be In her usual health.
Following a consultation between Harry J. Powers and Charles Bulkloy, Mrs. Gilbert's personal manager, who is also a representative of Charles Frohman. It was decided this afternoon to take the body to New York. The start will be made over the Erie Railroad at 11.30 a. m. tomorrow.
New York, Dec. 2. - Mrs. Gilbert's body will be brought from Chicago to this city late on Sunday next. No arrangements have been made for the funeral beyond that it will take place in the Bloomingdale Reformed Church. Mrs. Gilbert had no relatives in this country.
Mrs. Gilbert's Career -- The last time Mrs. Gilbert appeared in Washington was during the week of December 23. 1902. ns Mrs. Deborah, the housekeeper. In the original American cast of "Mice and Men." with Annie Russell as the star. During the week she slipped In the street and received an injury which obliged her to remain at the Raleigh for a short time, while the company proceeded to Now York. She was then seventy years old. Mrs. Gilbert's maiden name was Ann Hartley. She was born at Rochdale, Lancashire. England, in 1822. and began her career at Buny, St. Edmunds, as a dancer. She became the wife of G. H. Gilbert, a dancer on the Norwich circuit. In 1846, and in October. 1849, came to the United States with her husband, who died in New York In 1866.

GREGORY, Mrs. Mary (Sivers) - Died at Chicago, July 28, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Frank Skinkle, Mary, aged 63 years, wife of Harrison Gregory of this city.
Death of Mrs. Harrison Gregory
It is our painful duty to chronicle this week the death of Mrs. Harrison Gregory, which took place at her daughter's Mrs. Frank Skinkle, in Chicago, on Friday morning. The deceased had been afflicted for some years with Bright's disease of the kidneys, from which no medical relief could be obtained and finally terminated fatally. Mr. Gregory was summoned Thursday afternoon, but death occurred before he reached Chicago. The remains were encased in a rosewood casket, and arrived at Henry Saturday morning, and the funeral held in the Christian church at 3 p.m. Rev. B. Edmiston, who conducted the services, preached an effective and consoling sermon.
Mrs. Gregory was born at Hagerstown, Md., Oct. 28, 1812, and herself and brother, William Sivers, who has lived in Mr. Gregory's family 1832, were the only children of that family. Her father dying, the mother afterwards married a Mr. Burns, who moved with the family in Ashtabula county, Ohio, where Mr. Gregory made the acquaintance of Miss Mary Sivers, and married her in August 1834. In 1843 they moved into Peoria county, where they resided until settling permanently in Henry and vicinity from 1852. Ten children were born to Mr. Gregory, three boys of which have preceded their mother to the other life, the others growing to manhood and womanhood, and becoming useful and honored members of the community, exemplifying the lifework and teachings of their most excellent mother and father.
Mrs. Gregory was very highly esteemed and her life was marked by those traits of womanly character, that is seen in the patient wife, the untiring mother, and the wholesome rearing of a large family. She was foremost in sickness, and her kindly hand and assistance was always open to the needy. No needy one went empty away from her door. She always made her home pleasant, and those best acquainted became warmly attached to her.
She has lived to see most of her children marry and settle about her, and it was her pride that she had reared so many worthy members of society. Her life work had been useful and when the summons came, at a fair old age, she was ready for the summons. A very large funeral attested the respect for the honored dead. So we all must die, let it be with as good a life record. [The Henry Republican, Marshall County, IL, August 3, 1876 - Submitted by Source #25]
