Article Description: Wealthy Nun Elopes.
La Salle, Ill., Nov. 22.--Sister Maura, of St. Mary's Hospital, today renounced her
vows and eloped with John GRAY, of this city. The couple purchased tickets to St. Louis.
GRAY was an inmate of the hospital for several months, but they met only a few days ago.
Two months ago Sister Maura went to Minneapolis where she collected a large amount of
money to which she had fallen heir. Ten days ago she returned with the money.
The Sister Superior says Sister Maura was either hypnotized by GRAY or mentally affected
by the money. She had been in the hospital seven years, was young, pretty and considered
an excellent sister.
