THE SEP ALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, JULY 8, 1884.
.After Abusing His Family L.
P. Heldman Leaves
A Man Who Would Oast a Stigma
Upon the Name of
"Man oorn of woman is of few days and
full of trouble." So it is said, but tbe
Bazoo is of the opinion that the woman is
ihe one wno generally sees the trouble.
When a man tatses unto himself a wife he
solemnly vows to love and cherish her
through life, but how often does it happen
that that woman would nave been far bet
ier off had she never .seen the man. At first
he is all that is good, but gradually gets
ii iij i i i
coiaer ana coiaer, ana neglects her more
and more, until life itself becomes a bur
den to her ; and how often is it that the
hardened wretch, who is unbefitting the
name of man. or who would taint the name
of the commonest cur dog. is directly the
cause of her death.
rx a i i
Hanging is too gooa lor such a man.
He should be driven clear of the state be
fore others follow his example. Whisky
is no excuse for a man's abuse to his fami
ly, but the drunkard is an angel by the
side of the man, who, through pure cussed
meanness, assaults the one who should be
dearest on earth to him.
Humor spread through the town yester
day that L. P. Heldman had deserted his
family, leaving them in somewhat desti
tute circumstances. A reporter called at
their residence on Third and Massachu
setts streets to learn the particulars.
He found the wife and daughter at
home, and when he had stated his busi
ness, they talked freely.
The following is substantially her story .
We haye lived in Sedalia
along time about eighteen years. My
husband is a mechanic working in the ma
chine shops in East Sedalia. I have two
children here my daughter by my side
and a son who keeps a lemonade stand on
the corner. I do not like to make this
matter public but I have suffered all

Heldman wou'd find it out. The girl was
a good and pure young woman, and seemed
anxious to do something for herself, but
had frequently recurring attacks of sick
ness of a serious nature which make it
very hard on her to earn her own living.
Reporter What do you know as to his
treatment of other members of the family ?
Dr. I only know what they have told
me. Mrs. Heldman had to earn the living
for the family, and that while being con
stant abused, tortured and threat

A healthy looking middle-aged lady with
more than masculine boldness came through
the crowd, pushing men right and left.
She had on a bias cut waist and an
extremely loose polenais, and her
hair was done up in an ar
tistic wart on the back of her neck. Her
eye had such a mother-in-law look that
men began to hide behind beer bottles and
view the horizon to see where the cyclone
was going to strike.
When she saw the conductor her face
lighted up with a look of triumph that
