Mrs. Schmidt Guilty of Bigamy

New York, 1895

Mrs. Eva K. Schmidt was convicted of bigamy in the court of sessions on Tuesday. She is 22 years old. She was married to William Schmidt in Brooklyn on November 20, 1892, deserted him in July, 1894, and went to live with Joseph Steffler, of No. 38 Howard avenue, East New York, to whom she was married in the following August. At this second marriage she gave the name of Eva K. Bagley.

Thinks She Was Enticed Away

Rose Collins, the 18 year old daughter of George L. Collins, of Astoria, has been missing from home since February 8. Mr. Collins has requested Supt. Byrnes to search for the girl, who, he believes has been enticed away by three Astoria young men.

Mail Train Derailed

The east bound Sag Harbor mail train, which runs as an express from Jamaica to Babylon, was thrown from the track at Lynbrook at 9.13 o'clock Wednesday morning. No one was injured.

The tender was torn from its trucks, as was also the forward section of the mail car. A broken frog point is believed to have been the cause of the accident.
