Sr. Louis, April 2. In order to get at
tho facts in tho scandal connecting tho
name of Health Commissioner Francis with
Ida Simpson, whjch has of lato been attracting
so much attention throughout the
country, that person was called upon by
yourcorrcpondcnt to-day. Miss Simpson
wns out with her brother and his wife, but
'at 10 tho" trio returned, and there wns not
tho .least hesitancy on tho part of
any of tho family in conversing on the
absorbing topic. It may bo promised
here that Miss Simpson is a young lady
twenty years of age, with eyes as black as
tho sloe, and hair us black as tho raven's
wing. In plain English she is a right down
pretty girl with bewitching face and lovely
form. She readily gave a history of her
first acquaintance with Mr. Francis, tho
attention ho had paid her, her downfall,
remorse nud thirst fur rovengc. Then
eamo tho story of her lato attempt at suicide.
"Yes," she said, ''it is true that I did
try to kill myself. I felt liko the world had
turned its back on me. Mr. Francis, who had
tsworu to love and take care of me all my life
simply deserted me, and told his friends
he had made a ' blasted fool ' of himself.
Tim papers spoke of me a if I had been
a loose woman, trying to blnrckntail a respectable
citizen. 1 wns a ruined girl and
without n friend. I ' determined that I
would put an end to myself. 1 wrote an
iccount of my life and Wrongs for tho
Democrat, and scut a copy
in tho man who hud been the
cause of my. downfall. I had two
of chloroform. After locking the door I
.nado a pullet on the tloor and placed a pit-tow
on it. 1 put the letter to the
under the pillow, where it would
he toulid the first thing. Then I saturated
uy clothes with the clilorotorm, took a
spoonful of it internally, and laid doWn, as
I thought, to my last sleep, but they found
me. Dr. 1'hoinpson was tent for and ho
brought mo to.
' And you see," continued the lady with
a bright laugh, " that I am still alive nud
is lively as a crioket, and now I want tho
.orld to know the truth about inc. I
have no hatred lor Mr. Francis. I
nnnot subdue all my love for a man
to whom I gave all that a woman has
worth giving her first love, but he has
brown me off as if 1 had been a
'(';. If he had been anything of a man
,o would have shielded mo and suid to the
world: ' 1 am responsible for this girl's
- .in, nud I will bear tho burden ot it.' He
knows how ho persuaded nic, blinded mo
mil infatuated me. I would havo given
him my life, such wns his influence over
me, but nt the first breath of scandal he
runs away and leaves all tho heavy load
for mo to bear.
THE' TRIP TO CII1CAOO.
In conversation with a Post-Dispatch reporter
Miss Simpson was asked: "What
injustice do you complain of?"
In tho first placo Mr. Francis says
imply that he went off to Chicago, and
that he was a fool. Ho leaves the impression
that lie and 1 ran oil" on a spree. Why
did ho not como out liko a man and toll
i how he almost carried me away."
' "How wns that 7"
; ' l have no ill feelir.g against him in
j my heart, but my story bus nover been
told. Two days before wo loft town, he
eamo to my boarding notue in ins buggy.
Ho wns almost o razed with drink, and he
begged mo to take care bf him. Ho said
thut all was over between him and his
wife, that she would not talk with him and
would sue for a divorce, and that he could
now look after mo. I asked hiin what he
wanted done, and he said that I should
tako euro of him. 'Let us tako a drink,'
ho said, 'and talk it all over.'"
' Did you agree?"
" Yes. I never wanted him to leave his
wife; never asked him, but I thought if it
is all over botweou them, it v ill bo right
for mo to tako my chance. Perhaps he
might marry me and givo mo at least a
name, if 1 had lost honor. If he had left
his wife for good, was it not natural for a
poor girl in my condition to cling to my
last chance? Then, ho was so drunk that
was afraid to let him go away alone.
i W. went out driving, undo dro've at
furious crait. Sovoral times wore nearly
upset, and ouce ho ran into a telegraph
polo and had a narrow escapo.
Then I took tho lines, and at bis dirootion
drovo to a place in tho suburbs (Miss Sampson
named tho placo), where wo remained
all that night and most of the next day.
I did so because ho beggod me to take care
of him. The next of tt moon he had sobered
up some. He Bald he would never sober
up here,, and ho intqndjfd. to go to Chioago.
I told.himtW,w'aB & bist, ho ' -'could do.
Then he said I must go, and I immediately
"rtjfiiMtd. Bnt"ke fcf gd" aad atreated,
and at lut I 'oVin(ed. 'Dtitlng "the

'mate keep for kira. Sow, If I waatad to
tiiek kim could I mat have Uft Urn 1 Tkat
mmj wasld kava aravldad far aaa U a
disgrace but I would not do such a thfng.
Ho told mo when ho gave me the money
that Dr. Qrindcn and Mr. Fitzwilliam
bound to stop him When ho wns leaving tho
City Hall that afternoon, but that ho had
drawn his pistol, mado them both stand
aside, and threatened to kill tho man who
would attempt to detain him."
'What happened in Chicago?'
" Oh, I dislike to talk about these things,
but I havo sutl'cred and I have been
abused. Mr. Francis was drunk there all
the time, and he spent his money and nil I
had. too. Every timo ho ordered a bottle
of champagne ho gavo tho boy a half a
dollar, and his payments to boys alone
ran up to SO or !7 a day. We stopped at
the Palmer House, and I did all I could to
keep him from drinking, but he would.
Ono day I was writing a letter to St.
Louis; lie demanded to seo it, and I refused.
Ho pulled his revolver and said,
I'll givo you threo minutes to put that
letter down on the table.' "
"What did you do?"
" I looked at hiin and said, ' Then I give
you notice that in three minutes you must
kill me, for you will never see that letter.'
Ho saw I was in earnest, and would not
shoot. Then 1 remembered thut I, top, had
a pistol in my satchel, and I got it. I
went over nnd lookpd the door. He mndo
a rush at me and I drew my revolver
and said, ' stand whero you are. If you
advance another step I'll drop you liko I
would a dog. You have ruined me nnd
taken me from my home. Now you beat
me.' That ocwed him, nnd he did
nothing. The previous day ho had
beaten mo and dragged me around
the room. I had marks on my neck
long after I came homo as the result of his
treatment. The next day he gave me some
money, after he hifd telegraphed for it to
St. Louis, and on the following morning I
found thnt ho had stolen it all buck, and
my pistol, too, and gono Out. When ho
came back he sut in a big chair and ns"kod
me to rc.id Hie paper to him. He could
not rend, he wns iu such a condition. I
sat on the edgo of tho whilo 1
read, and succeeded in taking Ids pistol
out of his poakot beforo ho knew it. Then,
witJi tho revolvor, I forced him to givo me
enough money to como homo.
" Ho did not want to do so, but I said I
would go, with or without him. Only for
that pistol I never would have had tho
money. I was bound to go whilo I had It.
What am I blamed for? I'm ft poor girl,
who was 'foolish enough to yield to tho repeated
solicitations and entreaties of, a man
who wns my snporior in age nnd position,
and to whom I was almost indebted for my
living. I fell, but ho knows who was to
blame. I havo no ill feeling against him.
even now, and would not movo a finger to
injure him. AH thut I ask is thai he furnish
me some means to leave hero ami go
to a place where I can earn an honest living
again. At present 1 have not a dollar
to do this."

His Greatest Trotiblo in Insomnia

Washington, April 2, President Arthur's
condition, physically, really gives
good grounds upon which to base uneasiness.
There are hundreds, aye, thousands
of cool, honest and scnsiblo pcoplo hero
who believe that tbero will be another
President than General Arthur before tho
expiration of the present term. This subject
bus been tho eourco of a great
deal of quiet private talk during
tho past month, nn.d as timo advances
tho idea that General Arthur is
himself growing alarmed over his condition
seems to gain strength. As stated
Bomo time ngo, tho President enn not sleep
soundly. He has insomnia, nud it afflicts
him sorely. Tho loss of sleep will in time
crush tho strongest constitution, and his
appearanco indicates now that it is "wearing
upon him. Standing hard by tho President
at the "White House on St. Patrick's
Day, whilo tho procession passed him, he
looked unnaturally palo and haggard. There
was an unusual amount of whiteness about
his eyes, tho balls seeming white almost to
tho sight center. Heavy blaok lines under
his eyes formed n strange and ill contrast
ns against tho palo, bloodless flesh about
tho breadth of his cheoks. Directly over
his cheek bones there aro largo spots of
coagulated blood. Ho seemed more limp
than usual, nnd his wnlk was less brisk
than common. He cast his eyes about him
in a nervous, uneasy manner, as though
uncomfortable and suspecting.
A gentleman, who has been in the President's
presence a great deal since thon,
says that theso symptoms of distress and ill
health have increased, nnd that tho
must have rest. Ho soys tho stories
painted about tho President being haunted
in his sleep; the cruel report revived from
Now York that his wife died from a broken
heart, and tlio caricatures made of him,
bnsed, as a general thing, upon absurdities,
nnd falsitiost and being brutnlly mean, do
not tend to relax the tension of his nerves
nor sweeten bis rest. Ho says that,
although General Arthur is a man of iron
nerve, and seemingly insensible to the
threats of an iiiisymputhiziug world, he is
very susceptible to this harshness, and is
sad of heart. Thero is little doubt that
the in en I a 1 strain he has ghen to his office
lias done much to break him down,
while the taunts of an uncharitable constituency
have hurried him toward his almost
wrecked physical condition.
It is now hi ranged that he will leave
here on Tuesday, accompanied by
of the ny Chandler and the President's
private secretary Phillips, and that
he will spend ten days or two week in
Florida, lie hope to get re! and to be u
quiet in pi4ihc for a few days. He will
go in Florida waters. A change of
climate and iccrrtniou miiy hell) '''"' ,0
sleep better. It he is not benefit led he will
return speedily. Did ho not (eel the necessity
of such a trip he would not leave
Washington just now, for there aro many
matters of importance before him.
