Wanted to Marry Blue Grass
Several months ago Chief of Police
Reagan of Lexington, received a let
ter from St. Louis stating that the
writer wanted to many a rich Blue
grass belle, and all that he wished the
Chief to do was to put him in commu
nication with such a person. The let
ter was published in the Lexington
papers, and Dr. D. Bell, a well known
veterinary surgeon of that city, wrote
to the inquirer, representing himself
as a rich young widow with the name
of Mrs. Laura V. Wakins.
Th( Sf r.nius man ardently resoond-
ad, and after the exchange of several
amorous letters, Dr. Bell grew tire
nf the cramp nnrl a few davs SKO sen
w v. w 0H v ......
a letter deeply bordered in macK, ana
purporting to be written by the 'pi
vate secretary" of Mrs. Wakins, stat
ing that while Mrs. Wakins was on
her way to the city to buy a Christ
mas gift for her St. Louis admirer,
ner automobile was struck by a train,
her chauffeur killed, and she, herself,
so badly injured that she died three
days later. The letter stated that her
last words were of her correspondent
in St. Louis.
Evidently inspired by this communi
cation the following letter has been
received by Chief Reagan.
"St. Louis, December 29, 1910. J.
J. Reigan, Chief of Police, Lexing
ton, Ky. Have been informed by spe
cial letter that Mrs. Laura V. Wakins
has been killed in auto accident on
24th. Will you please wire me at once
as to the truth of this report. Charges
paid at this end. Don't delay."
