Page/Column: Page 2, Column 3

At East Tawas, Mich., Mrs. Walter F. Travis playfully slapped her husband's face in the presence of a neighbor the other day and Walter resented it. He struck her in the face several times, kicked her, and knocked her to the ground. The woman's injury may prove fatal, and Travis is in jail charged with "crime less than murder." The injured woman was taken to a neighbor's house, and the brutal husband then killed her canary, tried to make the dog eat it, and failing nearly killed the dog for disobedience.
