Printed in Daily Herald on July 15, 1913:
"Mrs. Anna Alveles, the 18-year-old bride of Louis Alveles, an employee of the Gulfport and Miss. Coast Traction Company, died this morning at one o'clock as the result of a fatal dose of carbolic acid which the young woman drank yesterday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. The first inkling anyone had of the tragedy was when the young bride called out to a neighbor. "Oh, I have taken poison. Help." When the girl's grandmother, who was alone in the house with her side, she was writhing in agony from the effect of the fatal burns of the acid. In her horrible agony she was utterly unable to speak coherently or tell anyone whether she had taken the poison with suicidal intention or not. No cause can be ascertained why the comely and attractive young woman should have wished to end her life. She had been married only seven months and to all appearances was happy and contented with her husband who is a steady and well respected young man. He husband declares he knows no reason for her rash act. Mrs. Alvis(sic) came down yesterday and purchased a small quanitity of carbolic acid saying that she wished to treat a sore. The druggist cautioned her about its use and warned her to be very careful. On her way home on the car, she met Debuty Alex Ewing, with whom she was acquainted, and when he commented on the fact that she appeared to be ill, she tried to laugh and appear gay and unconcerned. Reachin her home on East Howard avenue she went to her room and nothing was heard from her until she cried out for help saying that she had taken poison. The neighbors came quickly to her aid and Doctors W. T. Bolton, T. O. Hunter, George and J. E. Wallace were called and rendered every assistance in their power to save the unfortunate woman but it was too late. It is said that indications as to the manner in which the acid was taken point to suicidal intent. Mrs. Alveles was a pretty young woman and popular with her friends and neighbors at Point Cadet. She came to this city last fall from Baltimore with her parents and was married during the winter to Mr. Alveles. Her parents have returned to Baltimore and she has no relatives or connections in the city except her husband and grandmother. Both are distracted with grief. The funeral will take place at 4 o'clock this afternoon with interment in the Biloxi cemetery."
