Thursday night from an anti-pro-

Death interrupted her plans ,to
interpret for Occidentals what she
had found of grace and beauty in
a recent visit to Japan, China, and
Asiatic countries. Upon completion
of this project she intended to re-
tire, fulfilling a promise that she
would leave the stage while in the
I prime of life.
Denounced by the bolsheviki as
the "darling of aristocrats," she
died in virtual exile from the Rus-
sia in which she was born, began
her ballet lessons at the age of
ten, and achieved her first success.
In recent years Communist influ-
ences had led even to rejection of
annual contributions of $500 to
other Russian dancers.
It was during her last visit to
the United States in 1924 that she
announced her marriage to d'Andre,
her accompanist, later revealing
that it had taken place 17 years
befoie. Other details of her private
life she kept secret, with the plea
that the public regards the artist
as an illusion, and she preferred to
remain so.

Woman's Death is Due
to Internal Explosion
(By Associated Press)
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23. - The
death of Mrs. Maude Branton, 43,
on the operating table of a hosnith1
here was described today by Dr. B.
A. Wilkes, superintendent of tne
hospital, as having been caused by
an explosion of anasthetic gases in
her lungs.
The woman's lungs were ruptured
by the accident. The accident oc-
curred while Dr. C. E. Warmer was
administering a cone of nitrous
oxide. Oxygen and ether already
had been applied and the patient
was semiconscious.
Dr. Wilkes said Dr. Warmer told
him the cone, saturated with ni-
trous oxide became ignited, ap-
parently from an electric spark of
static origin. The patient, he said,
inhaled some of the flaming gas
and the internal explosion followed.

and I see no reason why it should
not be attained very soon."
