X-Ray Finds No Heart in Miss Roosevelt

St. Louis--Miss Alice Roosevelt posed before the big X-ray machine at the German section of the educational building at the World's Fair to-day. The result was edifying to the beholders, but startling, too, for, try as he would, Prof. Leopold Bahlsen, who was operating the machine, could not locate Miss Roosevelt's heart.

Miss Warder, her Washington friend, and Miss Catlin, her hostess, stood revealed before the rays as possessors of hearts of generous proportions and so did the man of the party. Not so Miss Roosevelt. Repeated efforts revealed nothing more than the first experiment showed, and the other members of the party agreed that Miss Roosevelt must have lost her heart. --June 1, 1904 Ypsilanti Evening Press
