Little Shoe, Poem and Cold
Letter From Son in Boom
FROM RICHES TO POVERTY
Cast Off by Father When She -Married;
Divorced, Then Works
as a Domestic
Chicago, July 24. Among the be
longings of Mrs. Kate Porter, domes
tic, there was found a small
crocheted shoe, a typewritten leUer,
and a blurred newspaper clipping.
Mrs. Porter Is the woman whose
death Thursday night In front of an
automobile at Sheridan road and Ice
land avenue, revealed the mystery
which she had kept hidden while sh9
lived her marriage to Selwyn C Ed
gar, a wealthy rino miner of St. Lou's,
their separation, and her subsequent
descent, after much travel, to the posi
tion of domestic in the. house of W. F.
HobbB, a commission merchant, S36
The shoe was one she had knitted
23 years ago for her son, Selwyn C.
EdgaC-Jr., now a prosperous St. Louis
clubman. He was one year old when
she saw him last. The letter was the
only communication she ever receiv
ed from him a formal document, be
ginning, "Dear Madam," and ending
"Yours with respect." The clipping
was a fragment of come anonymous
POEM OP rJTFAXT'S LOVE.

The son, although at the behest rf
LIndley HobbB, son of his mother's
employer, occasionally contributing in
secret to her support, never dared oi
cared to pay her a visit.
His father had forbidden him to
speak her name, and even the sllgrt
financial assistance that he gave he;
was done without his father's know,
ledge. Her one desire for the five
years she was in the Hobbs household
had been to see him. He came for
the body and had it shipped to St.
Louis for burial.
STERN FATHER CASTS HER OFF,
Her father was William Price, a
wealthy tobacco planter of St. Louis
These were in the days when the old
stern chivalry of the south was sti'l
in existence, when daughters were
supposed to submit to the will of thir
parents. Kate Price's mother died
when she was eight years old. When
she was 16 she met Selwyn C. Edgar,
than a handsome young ne'er-do-we'l,
with more money than responsibili
ties, and a reputation for good living.
They fell In love. William Price
would have none of it. He unaffected
ly disapproved of young Edgar. He
ordered his daughter to have nothing
more to do with him. She refused
Without more ado he packed her off .c
a French convent in lxwisiana, ana
there, one night, while , the moon 't
the bayous, she crept through the gatt
to meet her suitor While she wa3
still little more than a child they were
William Price never forgave hl3
daughter. While he lived she was
barred from his affections, and when
he died she was left out of his will.
PLUNGED INTO ST. I.OVIS SOCIETV.
For 10 years, though, all went well
with her. Edgar settled down and
made money faster than he had pr
viously spent It. Three children were
born, one of whom lived, Selwyn C.
Jr. The young couple plunged into St.
Louis society of the '80s with a suc
cess attributed mainly to the beauty
of Mrs. Edgar. They Beemed happy,
seemed contented, seemed as much in
love with each other as on the day of
It ended. The same impassioned
temperament which had launched
Kate Price into her romantic marriage
cast her out upon wlIdeY and more
barren seas. She was driven from her
own household. Her husband 6ued
her for divorce and-without opposi
tion, secured both divorce and custody
of the child.
With her old life behind her. she
fled to Chicago, where she was mar
ried to a mysterious roan named Por
ter. What part he took in the tragedy
of her life, if he took any, is buried

No matter in what way an Id sore or ulcer first commenced,
whether from a wound, cut, or bruise, or from the ulceration of a wart,
pimple or mole, or even if it came without apparent reason, the fact
that it does not heal shows that bad blood is responsible for the place.
While the circulation remains impure and polluted, the nerves and
tissues of the flesh around the place are constantly being fed with
unhealthy matter and the fibres are thus prevented from knitting to
