FULL TEXT: Constantinople [Istanbul], April 13. – The police are now convinced they have to deal with a woman as they seek the poisoner who has killed nearly a score of men and women during the last month. The bodies of all the victims have turned black a few hours after death, and the police think the slayer is using a mysterious oriental poison, known to very few scientists. The victims have died in restaurants shortly after eating, on the streets and in their homes. All are of the middle class.
