Dr. Talmage went

back into the
something he had
r left behind. Durine: his absence Mrs.
, Talage, who, with- other members of
j & faintly, was outside awaiting his re
appearance, became greatly excited
sd alarmed for the doctor's
aafety. As soon as she was
isforraed that he was all right she broke
dowa completely, her overwrought
xervse being unequal for. such a strain.
H aoctors suggested a European tour
to build, up her f ailing health. She was
accompanied to Europe by Misses Maud
and Daisy Talmage. While in Rome
she became ill with .Roman fever, and
accompanied by one of her physioianJ,
she returned home. While staying at
the family's summer residence, near
Eaet Hampton, L. L, she appeared to
Improve, and her friends had hopes for
ner speedy recovery.
This was not to be, however, as she soon
had a relapse of the spells of exhaus
. jtionand nervous prostration. Thesuf-
Jferer was removed to thelDansville san
- it&riKm about a year ago with Miss Daisy
""Talmage as her constant companion.
"While Dr. Talmage was absent on a
J totaling tour in the west last week he
received a telegram summoning him to
his wife's bedside, He at once cancelled
' all his engagements and hastened back
to find that there was very little hope
for the patient's recovery, and he ije
' mained with her until the end came
this morning,
j Tbe deceased was the second wife of
Dr. Talmage. His first wife, was drowned
while boating in 18G2, leaving a daugh
ter, Miss Jessie, and a sou, who has
since died. Within two years afters
wscis the doctor married Miss Susie

provoked the most baleful surmises and
investigation as welt The prosecuting
attorney was one of tho foremost in ur
xanging tho coming speculation. It was
he who, m the fertility of his nature,
suggested tho flatboat. Hisfather was
proprietor of a flatboat of ample cabin
accommodation. Just then i$ was moor
ed, bow and stern, at the foot of the
levee. A couplo of games, were pro
grammed to come off that evening in
tho cabin of tho flatboat. It would bo oui

burg which made a specialty of punish

torney and some nine members of the
bar were engaged. It made, two nice
tables. EVervbodr was bondinc? fo tho
game with all of the native ardor of a
Kentucky gentleman. It was about this
time when, in companjwith a friend,
I strolled on the levee'ln the vicinity of
tho flatboat. I was 20 years of age and
had no money. My friend was equally
well fixed. Our youth and our poverty
forbade anything like poker so far as we
wero concerned. On discovering the old
folks thus charmingly engaged a taste
to be humorous swept over us. We were
law students; they were lawyers. That
was reason enough for the joke. As the
boat rose and fell on tho swell apd slack
ened the ropes we cast her loose: Silent
ly she drifted away over the dark bos
om of the river. The jovial gamesters
drew and filled and straddled and. raised
and called, all unconscious. At 2 o'clock
in the morning polonel Stebbins had"
won $70. It was in Mexican money,
and ho had sinkered it about his honest
old frame in half $ dozen pockets,
was about all of the.moneya.t that table,
and Qolonel Stebbins concluded he
might better go. He. murmured some-
thing about cold feot and promising liis
wife to come up to the hotel early and
arose to go. The rest jeered mildly aud
made invidious remarks after the fash
ion of losers at poker just as the game
breaks up. But Colonel S,tebbins was
inflexible. He put on his hatf bid ev
erybody good night, stepped out into
the inky darkness and carefully picked
his way overboard.
The water was 20 feetdeep. Thesil-
ver all but drowned the colonel, how
ever. At last he was fished out and laid
across a barrel to evict tho Ohio river
from his system. The whoops and yells
of the-voyagers at last brought a sleepy
ittie tug to their aid. They found them
selves 7 miles below the town. For

poker games adrift on the Ohio. Wo
