Sheet music for a mid-teens song “successfully introduced” by Evelyn Nesbit (her name is incorrectly spelled as “Nesbitt” on the cover). Evelyn - the figure at the centre of the scandal in which her husband, Harry Kendall Thaw, shot Stanford White at the Madison Square Garden rooftop theatre on June 25, 1906 - returned to the stage and vaudeville after seperating from Thaw following the murder trial. 
Thaw’s family sporatically supported her during the trial but dropped her quickly after Thaw’s acquittal. I do rather like the story, reported by her son, that the family gave her a lump sum of $25k, which in an act of revenge she then turned around and donated to the political activist and anarchist Emma Goldman (no corroborative evidence for this, alas).
