Cuttle IHo of Unknown Rlscnse.
N. B. Spurrier, of Nichols, was In

In tho olden tlmo when n dlvorco
was a rarity such n thing as a separa
tion between a young couplo but re
cently married was almost unknown.
Nowadays wo hear of these divorces
qulto frequently. Amy Goodrich nt
eighteen mnrrled Samuel Turner, aged
twenty-five, flirted with n former ad
mirer nud in three months they sep
arated. Turner, desiring to tnko nil
tho blnmo on himself, permitted tho
plea for divorce to go by default nud
willingly paid tho alimony fixed by tho
One day when a payment for nil
mony was duo Sam sent tho check by
mall with n bit of paper nttached stnt
lug that ho was Intending to sail the
next day for Italy, but hnd left In
structions with his brother to make
the payments regularly for him while
ho was absent.
Now, by this tlmo Amy had become
satisfied that sho had been very un
wise. Tho man with whom sho had
flirted was a worthless fellow with
nothing to recommend him but n hand
some, expressionless faco and Immacu
late clothes. Her affair with him was
Innocent, except that It should not
havo occurred at all, and scarcely, if
at all, caused nn interruption of her
love for her husband. Tho domestic
troubles had converted her from a
child into a woman, nnd for some tlmo
before tho receipt of this Inst alimony
payment she hnd regretted her action
nnd desired a reconciliation.
And now whcn sho was getting
tired of a long winter Snm was going
to snll for sunny Italy, while sho was
left behind to struggle with tho rest
of the cold season. Sho determined
to mako nn effort to bring about a
reconciliation and go with him.
Tho principal trouble was her pride.
All could bo arranged by her confess
lug that sho had been a foolish little
woman nnd asking his pardon for
what she hnd done.
But this was out of tho question.
Amy adopted n method which for
originality nnd indirectness was quite
astonishing oven for n young person
nineteen years old. She went to her
lawyer and told him that her husband
was nbout to go nbrond nnd sho fear
ed sho would not receive her alimony
What should sho do? Tho attorney
drew up a paper stating what sho had
told him nnd praying for Sam's do
tcntlou till be had given bonds for tile
payment of his obligations while In
foreign lands, where United States
law would not reach him. Amy sign
ed tho paper with tho stipulation that
when Sam was arrested he should be
brought to tho lawyer's olllco nud there
satisfy her in person Unit she would
receive tho alimony regulnrly. She
also stipulated Umt a clcrgymnn be
within call during the interview.
"A clergynuin!" exclaimed tho nston
"Yes, n clergyman!"
Tho lawyer looked ut her scrutlnlz
Ingly for n fow moments, then pro
cceded to finish drawing the docu
ment "The ways of woman aro some
times beyond tho ken of the most
crafty lawyer," bo muttered to him
Tho steamer on which Snm was to
sail was scheduled to leave tho dock
at 12 o'clock, and the meeting between
Mr. nnd Mrs. Turner, divorced, wns
appointed for 10 in tho morning. They
were left together in Uie lawyer's prl

"At 12, in two hours from now."
