Miss Ella McChesney, the daughter of Mayor Colgrove, of Corry, Pa., died at New Orleans, under most distressing circumstances. She, with some friends, was visiting the New Orleans Exposition, and by some means was separated from them and could not be found. The case was given to the police, and after two days search they found her in an out-of-the-way place and unable to give a clear account of what happened. It seems that she was drugged by supposed friends, who left her where the police found the body. She was in a pitiable condition and lived only a short time.
