ASKED FOR A DIVORCE.
llecauHu hlie Uldu't Know That She IVal
London Cor. New York Mail and Ex
press: There has Just been decided in
the divorce court one of the most sin
gular petitions which crop up from
time to time to enliven the rather uh
pressing atmosphere of that resort ot
matrimonial litigants. The petition
was a Jewess only 20 years old, her
maiden name being Miriam Lelber
man. She sought a declaration of nul
lity of her marriage on the ground
that it was obtained by fraud. Some
four years ago, it was alleged, she wan
courted by one Solomon Szapira, who
induced her to proceed with him to a
registrar's office and go through th
marriage cremony on the plea that
it was merely a necessary process of
formal betrothal to precede their
proi er union in the synagogue. A
remarkable feature of the case was
that irrmsiiately the nuptial knot was
tied the bridegroom shook hands with
his youthful spouse at the office door
and forthwith departed for South Af
rica, where he has remained ever since.
It seems a difficult thing in these fin
de-siecle days of enlightenment and
education to credit that the only per
son present at this ceremony who ap
parently had any idea of Its binding
nature v.-as the bridegroom himself
whn;o object obviously was to secure
the girl against possible rivals while
he was seeking his fortune in foreign
lands. The necessary witnesses of
the marriage included the mother and
uncle of the bride, both of whom sol
emnly swore in court that they did not
know a marriage had taken place. The
novelty of the circumstances and the
incredible ignorance displayed by the
parties somewhat staggered Mr. Jus
tice Barnes, who adjourned the case
and directed the Jewish rabbi to make
some investigation into the facts. That
functionary, however, could throw no
light on the matter beyond expressing
his conviction that the ignorance ot
the parties concerned was bona lido,
and not concocted for ulterior mo
tives. Finally the judge announced a
decree, but expressed his intention of
throwing the ultimate responsibility
upon the queen's proctor, to whom all
the papers would be sent and who
could, if he thought proper, interfere
to prevent the decree being maxle absolute

The English sparrow, which has won

At a recent meeting in London of the
Society for the Protection of Birds it
was proposed to petition the authori

measures for checking the increase of
