case in xvhicli hu figured as the claimant
xvas ono oJ Uiu most celebrated on record ,
and lifto'jn yearn ago it mailo n great stir
in the world. Hut the world soon forgets.
Lust .July so few people remembered tlio
O'.so that scarcely ; a corporal's guard
could bo mustered in a Now York thea
ter to hear the claimant tell his story.
His friends xvcre hoon exhausted , and lie
manager could bo found to take the risk
of piloting him through the country. So
ono morning the claimant paid his hotel
bill and disappeared. Misfortune followed -
lowed him to the humble lodging to which
he retired with his wifu. A child xvas
bora to them , and in a month it died.
Thou the claimant fell ill , and was dis
allied from doing anything for a living.
Ho made a few dollars by writing , or
providing the facts for somebody else to
write , stories of lifo in tlie Australian
diggings for the newspapers , but his
tales xviiro not successful. Tlmn thu
claimant's wife , a young woman , xviio
had been a singer in London , sought an
engagement under an assumed minie.and
for a fexv weeks she sang anil danced In
tlio concert halls of the Hoxvcry , earning
just enough to live upon , She yesterday

serves as bedroom , parlor and kitchen ,
where the ponderous form ol the claim
ant was Hti etched upon the bed. Disease
and worry have left their marks upon the

Jail to the lot of a poor man's xvilu. The
heavy , somewhat stolid countenance of
the claimant lights up with a kindly

vorced from his first wife in Kngland ,
but in tiio variety actress he seems tohayu
found a eongenjal mate ,
A singular thing about Iho claimant is
his ability to make one oolieve in his
earnestness. If ho be the greatest hum
