Henry B. Whipple,
bishop of Mlnneso-
among those who
know of the bride's
marriage. She Is
now 40 years old; her husband Is 73.
Mrs. Whipple is well remembered in
the oountry town of Saxonville, Mass.,
aa the widow of Michael Simpson, a
wealthy manufacturer . carpets and
horse blankets, who made an enormous
fortune during and after the war. In
his day he was the king of Saxonville,
nearly the whole of which town he
owned. At the age of 75 he won the
hand and some Bay the heart, also
of Eva Mars, who was 28 years of
age at the time. When they were mar
ried his wedding gift was a magnificent
house valued at 1500,000, which he had
built expressly for his bride. Two
years after his marriage Mr. Simpson
died. By his will he left his widow
11,000,000 in cash. She subsequently
received another $1,000,000 from the
sale of property in Boston belonging
to the estate. Mrs. Simpson has been
deeply Interested of late years in
Episcopal missions and charitable
work and has also taken an active
Interest in the reformatory for women
in Sherburn. She has been acquainted
with Bishop Whipple for many years
and was an intimate friend of his first
Tells ft Romantic Story.
Pauline Fernandzia, who is on trial
in Toledo on a charge of letting rooms
for unlawful purposes, created a sensa
tion by practically admitting that she
is the grand-daughter of the late Em
peror Maximilian, who was deposed
and executed in Mexico. She tells a
romantic story of political prosecution
and attempted assassination. She Bays
she was born in Madrid, and that her
father was assassinated when she was
about 10 years of age. She herself was
stabbed near the left eye and was blind
for several years. , Members of her fam
ily then took her nearly around the,
world, evidently fearing some danger
In Olympla, Wash., she was married
to Captain Henry Bunker, at the age
of 76. She had several children by him,
who are now in Cuba and Madrid. She
came to Toledo first in 1881, but the
visit of some Spaniards to this count
try alarmed her and she fled to the
Sandwich islands, but returned to this
oountry and Toledo two years ago. She
evidently has the sympathy of the Jury
and will doubtless be acquitted.
Wins Bli Bride at ft Basaar.
Antonio F. Gonzalez, secretary to the
ialvadoran consul, Dr. Eusterjio Cald
eron, of San Francisco, is a newly made
married man, and all because he at
tended the historical carnival which
was held in Native Sons' hall just Ave
weeks ago. His fair young bride was
the Scotch belle, Miss Frances Crelgh
ton, who was the particular attraction
in the "Bobby Burns" booth. It was
a case of love at first sight. With
a friend Mr. Gonzalez visited the car
nival Just to help the worthy cause,
that of the Woman's Educational and
Industrial union, but every evening
thereafter he went to help his own, and
incidentally the enterprise profited
through the special channel of the
Scotch representatives. Genuine
ehorb bread was on sale, and although
Gonzalez first saw the light of day in
Mexico he learned to eat it like a na
tive. Within a few days this inter
esting affair progressed, and the ar
dent swain became the escort of Ml,

Crefghton and her mother, Mrs. J. A.
McKay. But grief came all too soon,
for it transpired that the little lady
was going east soon for a year's visit
to an aunt. An absence under those
conditions was as good as parting for
ever. So on Friday last this young
couple in a counsel unto themselves de
cided to be married. The groom's fath
er and mother were informed of the
marriage, and are endeavoring to dig
nifiedly recover from their surprise.
The brothers of the family hastened
to wish their brother and his bride
joy, and Mr. Gonzalez Is quite confi
dent and willing to let his wife's sweet
personality win its own way In his
family. The groom is very popular in
Spanish circles, and has been attached
to the Salvadoran consulate for sev
eral years. He is an accomplished mu
Iclan, and was educated at Santa Clara
college. IHs father amassed great
wealth lo t Carmen mine.
' Mamma- mnbra Ike rreekeiy.
rnnamti oxdtement attended the mar
riage in New York city the other day
of Miss Virginia Rouss, daughter of
blind millionaire Rouas, and her
cousin, David Lee. The wedding was
an elopment Virginia is the only
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rouss, who
discouraged suitors coming tp the
handsome Fifth avenue home. Both
parents hoped the girl would not
marry, although Mrs. Rouss was will
ing provided the man was wealthy and
socially prominent. She adopted all
sorts of schemes to dismiss any bold
71 nth who sought to call on her pretty
daughter. 8ome time ago David Lee, a
cousin of Virginia, and descended from
th ' Lees of Virginia, came to New
York, to work for his uncle, Mr. Rouss.
Mr. Lee was taken Into the Rouss
home, where he remained until a week
ago, when he declared his love for
Virginia. This was a great shock to the
parents, as they had never regarded
him in the light of a suitor, as he wal
younger than their daughter and a
cousin. After he was sent away young
Lee communicated with his sweet
heart and the other morning she met
him at a minister's house and they
were married. Afterward they drove
to Mr. Rouss' office. He forgave them
but said he didn't care to have the
task of telling his wife. Finally a
telegram was sent Virginia's mother,
acquainting her with the marriage.
Mra. Rouss' rage took form in smash-
ing valuable bric-a-brac and .
throwing furniture through the plate
glass windows and otherwise demoral
izing her handsome home. The ser
vants have not yet recovered from their
fright. Young Mrs. Lee thinks her
mother will in time forgive her.
Romance of m Indian Maid.
, A divorce case, in which members
of the Sioux tribe are principals, has
been commenced at Chamberlain, S.
D., and so far as romantic features
are concerned is quite interesting.
First Born, a redoubtable warrior, and
Appearing Earth, a reservation belle,
were married at the agency by United
States Indian Agent A. P. Dixon in
October, 1890. Both are members of
the Crow Creek tribe of Sioux. All
went smoothly in the First Born
household until two years ago, when
a young Sioux beauty named Good Na
tured Fool Bear appeared on the scene.
The red-skinned beauty had been at
tending an eastern Indian school and
had returned to the reservation for her
vacation when she and First Born met
and formed a warm attachment, for
each other. Naturally the Jealousy of
the patient wife was aroused. Then
the recreant husband and the young
charmer decided to elope. They fled
to Yankton agency, but were followed
by Indian police and forcibly carried
back to Crow Creek agency, where
they were thrown into jail. After re
maining in Jail for a time they were
liberated, and the relatives of Good
Natured Fool Bear again sent her to
the eastern school, hoping that the
separation would cause the lovers to
forget each other.
A few months ago the Indian girl
returned to her home on the reserva
tion. First Born and she left the res
ervation September 10 and went to
Gann Valley, the county seat of Buf
falo county, where they were married
by Rev. E. P. Swartout, a Methodist
minister. They returned to the reser
vation in the evening and the next
morning were placed In Jail. A com
plaint against First Born was filed
with United States Commissioner
Stuart, charging him with bigamy, and
a wararnt was issued and served by
Deputy United States Marshal Lewis.
The prisoner engaged the services of
ex-Commissioner Morrow, who main
tained that the United States was
without jurisdiction in the matter, as
the marriage ceremony constituting the
act of bigamy was performed outside
the Crow Creek reservation and there
fore only subject to the state statutes.
The United States commissioner con
curred in this view and First Born was
released. His lawful wife has now
Instituted divorce proceedings against
him for bigamy.
Dorothy L. Costello'a Romance.
This belle of East New York brought
to a sudden end preparations for her
wedding to a real-estate dealer by an
nouncing that she had been married at
Asbury Park to her first love, Sidney
Gifford. The two were lovers four
years ago and were reconciled by meet
ing at the bedside of Mr. Gifford'f
brother, the latter being ill.

A Lively liear Hunt.
A Jackson (Ky.) letter to the Lex
ington Herald tells of a lively bear
nunc in .Breathitt County :
"On last Tuesday Steve Dehart shot
and killed a black bear near Red
River, in Menifee, which is about five
miles notheast of Dundee station, on
the Juexington and Eastern Railway.
. -rv.i . . . .

the hunt for the bear, when he found

feet from the ground, and he had to

01 tne eim, ne went into the den to
look for the bear, and as he was crawl
ing uiong tne aen tne Dear made a
roaring noise, and then Dehart ran
back on top of the cliff for the gun
and a dog. The dog had to be tied by
the head with a rope and let over the
cliff intc the den, when all at once the
bear seized the dog by the throat,
killing him instantly. Then another
dog was lowered in the den, and as the
bear made a rush for the dog Steve
shot the bear between the eyes, slight
ly wouflding him. The bear regained
his feet and got back into his den, re
maining there until the next morning,
while Dehart lay by the den all night
trying to punch the bear out with a
pole. Then early the next morning
he ran a long pole into the den, and
as the bear made a rush for the mouth
of the den Steve shot him in the head.

five feet broad."
The flernooii Nap.
The frequency with which medical
men are asked whether it is harmful to
indulge in the "afternoon nap" is not,
perhaps, surprising, for several rea
sons. Most persons have had experi
ence in the seducive charms of the
somnolence which has followed the
comfortable ingestion of a midday or
evening meal. The meal finished, the
diner arranges himself comfortably in
an armchair, takes up a newspaper
and prepares to make the most of the
restful conditions of his mind and
body. But nature soon begins to as
sert her sway. In time, the eyelids
close, the head begins to nod, the
newspaper falls from the hands and
the symptoms of a nap are complete.
Whether the "winks" be forty or one
hundred in number, the result is the
same a short, sound sleep. Then
oomes the question, Is it harmful thus
to fall asleep after a meal ? By no
means, for the very obvious reason
that the process is merely a physiolog
ical one, and as such, when it occurs,
is quite natural. When digestion ia
in progress, nature has arranged that
all the available blood in the body
shall be collected in and abont the
digestive organs, Consequently, the
blood supply to the brain falls to a
low ebb, and thus sleep is easily in
duced. On the other hand, of course,
physiologically, it is wrong for brain
work to be attempted immediately
after a solid meal. Medical Press.
Dream Was fulfilled.
Don Waggoner, the twelve year-old
son of George Waggener, of Independ
ence, .Kan., was shot and seriously
wounded while out hunting by the
accidental discharge of a gun. A
queer incident of the affair is that his
father was away from home at the
time, but the night before dreamed
that serious accident would happen
at home the next day. This so worked
upon bis mind that he started for
home the next day, and arrived just
as his wounded son was carried into
the house. Chicago Chronicle.
Celery Oil in Restricted Demand.
Celery oil now finds a restricted
market, the oil being produced chiefly
in Germany. It is distilled from the
fresh leaves and imparts the peculiar
flavor of oelery to perfection. There
is an increasing demand for the oil
and larger production of celery for its
manufacture. New England Home
Fighting a Bob-Cat.
The ugliest appearing animal that
ever walked a log. killed a rabbit or
, fought a trap is the lynx, which is just
as ugly as it looks ten months in the
year, and somewhat uglier during the
other two. Not only will the lynx fight
anything that walks in the voods, but
it will also tackle a visitor from the
clearings, be he man or dog, or half
grown calf, if the occasion offers, says a
writer in Shooting and Fishing.
Jim Berry was hunting up in Maine
about forty miles north of Greenville,
when he and his friend came suddenly
upon the carcass of a caribou which a
bear was eating. The bear made itself
scarce, much to Jim's regret, as he
wanted to kill a bear. Without saying
anything to his friend, he left camp the
next day and started for the carcass,
Intending to watch it in the hope that
the bear would return. He waited and
watched till about 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, when he began to think df
returning to the camp. A soft footfall
back in the woods, the crafty step of
some wild animal, just then sounded
in his ears. Pretty soon the beast was
chewing the caribou meat, and Jim
could see it plainly. He leveled his
buckshot gun and pulled the trigger
when the wabbling muzzle was point
ed in what he thought was the right
direction. The beast went down, and
Jim started for it. Then he stopped
with his mouth open.
The beast had leaped to its feet and
jumped sideways with its back up.
Jim knew the yell, and he also recog
nized the humped back. It was a
wounded lynx spoiling for a fight. Not
having time to level his gun to shoot,
the man cluDbea it, and the blow
stunned the cat a little, but the beast
got in a rake on the man's leg that
tore his trousers and hide, too. An
other frantic sweep of the gun barrel
laid the beast flat, and then a revolver
bullet killed the animal. The buck
shot had torn the top of the lynx's
head enough to make it aDgry.
