Jersey Woman Lost Fortune on Titanic

NEW YORK, April 24---Mrs. Jane Herman, of Bernardsville, N. J., who was saved, with her daughters, when the Titanic foundered, but whose husband, Samuel Herman, was drowned, lost all she had in the world in that disaster.

Her husband had in his pocket all their money, a check for a large sum, a gold watch and chain belonging to her, and their jewelry. Silverware worth $300 and belonging to them went down with the ship. The destitute women are staying temporarily with Arthur Laver, brother-in-law of Mrs. Herman. He is steward of the Somerset Hills Country Cub.
