MRS. THEODORE H. PRICE,
Wife of the rehabilitated cotton king.
REPUBLIC SPECI I
New York, March 7. The Cotton King
has come into his own again and Wall
street. Irreverent "of kings, has welcomed
back to crown and throne Theodore H.
Price, who less than three years ago was
deposed with a crash that rang around the
Cotton is king again, howeverand Price
is king of cotton. With BW.0CO bales to his
credit he said his holdings a short time ago
at a proat estimated at 2 cents a pound, a
clear profit on the transaction of $5,000,000.
In May, 1900, Theodore H. Price began
his financial career from a new beginning
with a few paltry hundred dollar bills In
bis pockets, and a wife. Therein lies a
story which Is a romance of Wall street, a
place where romance, are not regarded as

S A ROMANCE OF WALL STREET.
The firm of Price. McCormick &' Co.
went down on Thursday, May U, in a crash
due to the tardiness of cotton In rising
rapidly enough in value to Justify the pre
dictions of Theodore Price. Tho firm failed
With that peculiar character of irony for
which all stock and produce exchanges are
noted the prico of cotton was sent within
a week to a point which would have made
J3.O00.O00 for Price, had he been able to
have arranged his holding a few points.
On Monday, May 28, 19C0. Theodore H.
Price was to have been married to a joung
woman to whom he had been engaged for a
year. His bachelor dinners was set for the
night of the day on which he failed.
CHURCH WEDDING PLANNED.
The event never occurred, nor did the
elaborate wedding which bad been ar

stead of being a millionaire. I am likely to
face debts of millions."
The young woman was Harriet Engenla
Dyer, daughter of the late General Alex
ander B. Djer, United States Army and
possessed something of the army spirit.
Any proposition looking to breasini the
engagement was promptly disposed of by
her. Instead the date of the marriage was
changed for the following SiturJay, the
28th of May, Instead of Monday, the 3th.
and. Instead of a wedding in a church fl'led
with mutual acquaintances, there -Has a
simple little ceremony in the drawing-room
of her sister's house.
That night they started for ProUdenco.

ners. Theodore Price, however, was not the
sort of man to let his knowledge of cotton
conditions go to waste. Tentatively lie
tested the market In 1901, and while be
made little for himself he made mllllsns for
others. The world was cotton hungry and
he knew It.
With the statistics of the world's cotton
concumption at his fingers' ends the man
broken in the crash of 1500 bopan his cam

had lost. Dack of him were gathered

A. C. Burrage, the copper magnate, of
Boston, and indirectly repreeen't'rg John D.
Rockefeller, furnished the war material for
tho campaign. Price handled the forces'.

Buy, buy. buy was his constant command
to those who were worklrjj for him, and
threo weekB ago he had to bis credit KV
M0 bales of cotton, each bale of cotton
weighing ,500 pounds, and repre"ntins, at
an average Increase In value of 2 eents'a
pound, a profit of $3,000,000,
Then D. J. Sully, of the firm of P. V,".
Reynolds, of Providence, R. I , came Into
the fleld as the bull leader, deposing Theo

Greedily, Sully took all the coUon that
was offered, and day by day Price fed it to

To-day Theodore H. Price is kins of the
cotton mtrkct again.
The flght Is his up to this point. He has
sold his holdings and has his profits.

New York, March 7. Grief has given way
to rejoicing in the Red Bank. N. J., home of
Miss Edith Curzon. a beautiful young wom

an undertaker, returned to life and Is now
fairly on the way to recovery.
Medical records contain no case more pe

Tihys'clan announced that her Case was a
light attack of pneumonia, but she suffered
so little that several friends were allowed
to come into her bedroom

success of the party. The next day,, too, her
condition gave no cause for alarm, and sho
conversed with the members of her family
who came Into tha room.-It was thousht
that all danger had passed.
Then she began to rink rapidly, and the
family was called Into the sick room. After

kissed her good-by and looked for the last
time, as they thought, upon her face in

minutes, and, after a trying silence. b"oke

life had gone.
The relatives left the room, the physician
