Two crooks, Baron and Brasch, now apparently residents of the New Jersey penitentiary, yielded to the temptation to acquire money by supposedly easy means. They selected as their victim a Miss Russell, a retired school teacher with more cash than is usual in the cases of people with her background. She seems to have had a strong leaning towards charitable contributions, and it was this trait which commended her to Baron and Brasch.
