PATHETIC STORY OF MOTHER'S GRIEF

Mrs. Elnora Shupe, Whose Child Was Accidentally Killed in St. Louis, Prostrated.

RUN OVER BY HEAVY WAGON

Bore Up Well Until After Burial on Tuesday, When Overstrained
Woman Broke Down.

A pathetic story of a mother's grief over the death of one of her little tots is that of Mrs. Elnora Shupe, who is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Dalton, 1712 south State street. Mrs. Shupe is totally prostrated. The child was 22 months old and was killed June 27 while at play in front of the Shupe home in St. Louis, as previously detailed in the "News." Dr. J.R. and Mrs. Shupe, who have been living in St. Louis for the past four years while the husband attended a medical college there, made it a rule not to let Reed, aged 4 and Forest, 22 months old, play outside of the yard, as the street in front was in constant use by vehicles. One afternoon Mrs. Shupe took her little ones out on the sidewalk and Forest toddled happily along the parking by the sidewalk.
CHILD CRUSHED BY WAGON
Just as a heavy wagon turned the corner the little child stepped down from the curbing to the pavement. The horses were upon it in a second and the wheels of the wagon passed over the infant, crushing life from the little body. A corner's (sic) jury found the negro who was driving the team and wagon responsible for the child's death as it was shown he was driving at a rapid gait and was not looking where he was going. Owing to the grief of the parents they did not press charges against him, however, but they came to Springville, Utah, with the body of their child.
BROKE DOWN COMPLETELY.
The burial was held Tuesday. Mrs. Shupe bore up well until after the funeral and her husband thought she was gaining strength nicely until she broke down completely. Dr. Shupe will remain in Utah to practice as he had graduated from the Barnes College of Medicine.
