Wheres Mother
bursting in from school or play
This is what Jhe children say
Trooping crowding hig and small
On the threshold in the hall
Joining in the constant cry
as the days go by
Wheres mother
From the weary bed of pain
J This same question comes gain
From the boy with sparkling eyes
ia Bearing home his earliest prize
< Erom the bronzed and bearded son
Perils past and honors won
Wheres mother
gs Burdened with a lonely task
l One day we may vainly ask
X For the comfort of her face
J For the rest of her embrace
Let us love her while we may
Well for us that we can say
AVheres mother
Mother with untiring hands
At the post of duty stands
j Patient seeking not her own
f Anxious for the good alone
ft Of the children as they cry
J Ever as the days go by

Herald Special
Newark N J Sept 21 The case
against Mrs Caroline B Martin and
Mrs Mary W Snead who together
with Miss Virginia O Wardlaw whose
death from voluntary starvation occur
red at the House ofDetention on
August 12 were indicted for the mur
der of Mrs Ocey Wardlaw Martin
Snead the victim of the famous
Bathtub Murder was called for
trial before the New Jersey supreme
court in this city today It was known
that the state had the strongest case
against Miss Virginia O Wardlaw and
it was rumored that owing to the
death of Miss Wardlaw the prosecu
tion would probably abandon the case
against the two other defendants but
this supposition proved to have been
wrong The prosecution though foil
ed in convicting Miss Wardlaw show
ed no disposition to give up the case
against the two other defendants and
there is every reason to believe that
they will be given a speedy trial
Mrs Ocey Snead was found dead
in the bathtub of the house No 89
West Fourteenth street East Orange
on November 29 1909 and so pecu
liar were the circumstances surround
ing her death that the authorities be
gan to investigate to ascertain the
true facts of the case In the after
noon of November 29 some woman
called up the police of East Orange
asking for the address of the coroner
When the woman was informed that
there were no coroners in New Jer
sey she informedthe police that a
woman had committed suicide in No
89 West Fourteenth street Dr H
M Simmons one of the deputy county
physicians was sent to the house and
found the body of the young woman
in the bathtub The tub was full of
water and the entire body of the
young woman was submerged At
first the physiciandid not suspect
that there was anything wrong es
pecially as he found pinned to the
clothes of the woman a note stating
that sfcse had committed culoldo
Closer investigation convinced him
however that the woman had been
dead more than twentyfour hours
As the bathroom was the only one in
the house it seemed strange that the
body had not been found sooner The
explanations offered by the three wo
men in the house did not satisfy the
physician and upon his report a care
ful investigation was begun by the po
lice authorities
It was ascertained that the victim
of the tragedy and her aunt Miss Vir
ginia Wardlaw had moved into the
house on West Fourteenth street ten
days before the finding of the body
They had no furniture except a cot
and a soap box which served as a
table The two women had no money
and had subsisted on milk biscuits
and a few oranges It was found that
the three women afterward indicted
were near relatives of the victim
The aunt of the dead woman Miss
Virginia Wardlaw came from a well
connected southern family and at one
time was president of Soule College
at Murfreesboro Tenn and later a
member of the faculty of Roanoke
College Salem Va The exact circum
stances which led to the decline of
the family fortunes are not known
but it seems that Miss Wardlaw ac
companied by Mrs Caroline B Mar
tin the mother of Ocey and Mrs
Mary W Snead the mother of Oceys
husband Fletcher W Snead came to
New York some years ago probably
in the hope of recovering their for
tune At first they lived at the Wal
dorfAstoria but as their funds
dwindled they moved to less expen
svie quarters in Brooklyn and finally
to the unfurnished house In East
Orange Oceys husband could not be
found for a long time but was finally
located in St Catherines Ontario
where he was working as a cook He
seems to have had no connection with
the mysterious death of his wife
It was ascertained that the women
weie in desperate financial condition
for several years and borrowed from
many wealthy persons giving their
notes as security As a strong mo
ment of suspicion is considered the
the fact that the life of Ocey Snead
was insured in ten companies for an
aggregate of 32000 The insurance
companies at first suspected that the
body of the young woman in the bath
tub was not that of Ocey Snead but
the body was positively identified by
several persons among them the doc
tor who had treated Ocey Snead when
her baby which died in the spring of
last year was born Another strange
feature is the fact that six or seven
wills were found purporting to have

They Say Is of Local Interest
When an incident like the follow

bound to carry weight with our read

the rounds of the press are publish

On one subject skepticism is rapidly
disappearing This is due to the ac

their public utterances regarding
them The doubter must doubt no
more in the face of such evidence as
this The public statement of a repu

whom you can see every day leaves
no ground for the skeptic to stand on
