AM ablo this
wook, I am
happy to say,
to do fl n i t e
ly sot at rest
der which I
know my read
ers have been
cerning tho ex
act result o(
tions of Prince
Isenberg von Birstein for the hand of
Miss Florence Pullman, Bays tho "Saunt
erer'in Town Topic. As I stated
some weeks ago, no less exalted u per
sonage than tho Emperor of Austria
had interested himself in this proposed
match, and it may now intorcst his Ma
jesty, ub well as less conspicuous people
to learn how the affair camo to bo 'oil"
for good. Papa Pullman, who is noth
ing if not businesslike from tho ground
up, took a long timo to consider tho mut
ter, but when ho reached lib decision
tho Prince, bo I understand, was not
long in hearing of it, Hir, Highnoca, so
I am told, was politely but curtly in
armed by tho multi-millionaire carman
that he would never seok to intluonco
his daughter's choice in her selection of
a husband; thut sho would, however, re
coivo but a nominul dowry if sho should
contract a murriuge of which ho did not
approvo, and that ho could not con
sciontiously sanction her marriage to
tho Prince. I fancy that if tho Princo
hud been u little better acquainted with
tho real character of tho Duko of Pull
man (as ho is Btill called), ho might havo
been tempted to run tho chanco of mak
ing a ten-striko, so to speak, by indig
nantly disclaiming anything like mer
cenary motives and continuing his up
peal for tho hand of his fair charmor ir
respective of any financial conditions.
For whatever elso may bo said of our
American Duko, or, us I should say, our
Ohicugo Duko, ho has never yet been
Buspocted of u lack of desiro to trout his
children handsomely, und I am reason
ably confident that if tho Princo hud
persisted und made Miss Pullmun u
Princess, leaving tho futuro in tho
hands of his father-in-law, ho would
huvo found littlo reuson to complain of u
luck of gonorosity on tho luttor's part.
It is, of courBO, possible, howovor, that
tho titled Austriuu oxpoctod his frlond,
the Duko, to turn over to him his whole
fortune, including all his rolling stock
and reul estuto, together with tho entire
town of Pullmun und its content?, us
ono condition of his condescension in
making his daughter u Princess, in
which event tho princely fortitude with
which ho accepted tho parontul rejec
tion of bis suit is scarcely to bo wonder
ed at. It is with great unwillingness, of
course, thut I inform tho pooplo of Chi
cago that ono of tho belles of that thriv
ing town is not to become a Princess this
spring, but anything is bettor than sus
pense, and who knows, after all. but
that anothor Prince may not put him
self on tho western matrimonial market
before tho year is out?
A quiet marriage ceremony was sol
emnized at 8:30 Saturduy evening at tho
home of Mr. and Mrs. James Rivett,
Twenty-fourth and Sumner streets. The
brido is Mrs. Rivett's mother, Mrs. Mar
ion Logan, and tho groom Mr. Robert
McVickor of North Rend, Nob. Tho
coromony was performed by Rev. John
Doano in the prcBenco of only tho im

they will spend tho winter.
