Stolen Dress

“A young man invited a young woman to a formal dance.But she was very poor, and she could not afford to buy the evening gown she needed for such an occasion.
“Maybe you can rent a dress,” her mother said. So she went to a pawnshop not far from where she lived. There she found a white evening gown in her size. She looked lovely in it, and she was able to rent it for very little.
When she arrived at the dance with her friend, she was so attractive, everyone wanted to meet her. She danced again and again and was having a wonderful time.
But then she began to feel dizzy and faint, she asked her friend to to take her home. “I think I have danced too much,” she told him.
When she got home, she lay down on her bed. The next morning her mother found that her daughter had died. The doctor did not understand what had caused her death. So he had the coroner perform an autopsy.
The coroner found that she had been poisoned by embalming fluid. It had stopped her blood from flowing. There were traces of fluid on her dress. He decided it had entered her skin when she perspired while she was dancing.
The pawnbroker said he bought the dress from and undertaker’s helper. It had been used in a funeral for another young woman, and the helper had stolen it just before she was buried. ”
