Hicks Had Asked His Wife to Get His
Breakfast at 4:30 a. m.

Mrs. Geneva Hicks and her husband quarreled most of Friday night in their home at Seventh and Penn streets. At 4:30 yesterday morning he wanted her to get up and cook his breakfast. Then there was another little misunderstanding, and Mrs. Hicks refused. While in a melancholy mood over their troubles, Mrs. Hicks arose and drank an ounce of laudanum.

Dr. Ford B. Rogers arrived promptly with the ambulance and in a short while left Mrs. Hicks thoroughly reconciled to her husband. She said she was willing to cook at any old time now. She is 27 years old.
