How a Convict Hc-innrrlcd Ills Wife.
KANSAS CITY , Oct. 30.-In 1879 Wil

tradcr of Miama county , Kan. , and Miss
Wilson , daughter of a wealthy farmer ,

the young man had taken a drove of
mules , and the girl was visiting with
an old school friend. When they re
turned home , much against her father's
wishes , they wore married. Six months
later the husband failed in business and
went to Texas , promising his wife to
come after her when ho became settled.
Several months after his arrival
there ho became involved in an un
fortunate fight in which a man was
killed. Wheeler was convicted of the
murder on circumstantial evidence
purely and was sentenced to servo fif
teen years in the San Antonio peniten
tiary. The father-in-law at once ad
vised his daughter to apply for a di
vorce. She finally yielded and obtained
an absolute divorce and the restoration
of her maiden name.
Upon September 19 last , the governor
signed the pardon of Wheeler and ho
was released. When ho entered the
penitentiary , being well educated , ho
was placed in the dispensary depart
ment and there became a good pharma
cist. Upon his release his Fort' Worth
friends raised a subscription and set him
up in the drug business.
On Thursday last the young man re
turned to Kansas and wont to claim his

A Mock Marriage Untied.
EAU CLAIUU , Wis. , Nov. 9. A great
social sensation was recently created
here , and iij other cities where the lady
in the case is well known , by the marri
age in fun of Miss Clara Foster ( daugh
ter of Millionaire Foster , this county )
to Edward Foss , station agent at Fair-
child. Interest is added to the case by
the fact that the charming young lady
has a twin sister who so closely resem
bles her that many are unable to toll
the two apart , ana the sister who had
nothing to do with the escapade has ox-
porienecd as much annoyance as Mi&s
Clara , who did not leave her room for
several days after the affair , while Mr.
Foss , who is a gay grass widower , was
at times quite uncertain which girl ho
had married. It was at first supposed
by the distracted bride that the only
way to escape was to bo formally di
vorced. The matter has now been sot-
led after some worry. The rumor that
Mr. Foss was demanding $ .500,000
from the young lady's father us
a condition of release being
quite unfounded , as Mr. Foss is too
much of a gentleman. A plan was de
vised in n consultation ot the village
wiseacres and lawyers with assistant
counsel from Augusta and Eau Claire.
It was concluded that a divorce was not
necessary , but that all parlies must go
on record as havingcjigagedin the mar
riage ccrcmon'J without any serious In
tent and merely as a jest. Accordingly ,
bride , groom and justice of the peace
made solemn affidavits to that effect ,
and the bride and groom "exchanged
receipts. " as it were. Of course , this
remedy may bo legally wicked , and it
was probably advised by the lawyers
simply to quiet agitation. They acted
rather as physicians than as lawyers.
At any rate , the matter ic considered as
settled in this wayand the millionaire's
lovely daughter smiles through her
tears of vexation and grief. "It's all
fixed now , " exclaimed her twin sister
( they are just nineteen ) , "and Clara
will never do such a thing again. I
think it's horrid to have your own twin
sister get married in fun , and to bo
caught in earnest ! O , it makes mo
shiver ! " Both the young ladies are
highly accomplished and popular , and
the villagers have hardly yet got
through congratulating them on their
escape from the rather serious consequences
quences of an innocent joke.
A True I eve Match.
A Detroit ( Mich. ) dispatch says : Mrs.
Oarfield has in Mrs. R. Haw ley , of Wil
lis avenue , this city , a valuable friend ,
who gives an interesting version of Mrs.
Garfield's call to Europe , and of the re
lations between the Garlleld family and
Stanley Brown , the late president s pri
vate secretary , who was reported to bo
engaged to Miss Mollie Garlicld. This
knowledge comes from private letters
from Mrs. Garfield , and from personal
intercourse with the Garfield family
and Mr. Brown , allot whom were guests
of Mrs. Hawley during the summer at
her homo in Godeich , Ont.
Harry Garfield is engaged to marry a
Miss Mason , who , with her twoyounger
sisters , is in England , and ho cabled
his mother to come over on account of
Miss Mason's illness.
The marriage of Mr. Brown and Miss
Garfield was not expected to take place
before next summer at the earliest. It
is the present expectation of Mrs. Garfield -
field and her daughter to bo in Mentor ,
O. , by the Christmas holidays. There
could , therefore , have been'iio thought
of escaping from the wedding by mak
ing a trip to Europe. Mrs. Hawley is
also in a position to know that the en
gagement is the result of genuine love
on both sides.

A correspondent to the Now York
World writes : The town was excited
Sunday over the fact that ono of Win-
throp's most estimable .young ladies had
been deserted by her faithless lover al
most on the eve of her wedding day.
Great indignation prevailed , and if thu
the excited townsmen could have put
their hands on the recreant swain
matters would have gone hard with him.
Six or seven years ago a young man
hailing from somewhere in East Maine
visited Winthrop and became acquainted
with a Winthrop girl , the daughter of a
respected citi/.en. This acquaintance
had lasted about six weeks , when the
young man wont west. It is certain that
for the past year or moro ho has been
located at Helena , Mont. , where ho is
said to have moved in good society.
During all these years , too , he seems to
have found a place in his memory for
his Winthrop love , and has constantly
written the young lady during his entire -
tire absence , and the young lady has re
plied to his letters in kind.
Recently their correspondence has
been of a vigorous kind , and when the
young man wrote insisting on n wedding
this fall the young woman , with her
father's knowledge , gave her consent.
This done she gave up u clerkship in a
millinery establishment and went to
work getting her clothes ready and af

October the young man put in an appear

Returning in the afternoon he bade a
light farewell and was gone. That was

When afternoon came the deceived
girl watched in vain for her lover , little
dreaming of his conduct until she had
read a note which he had mailed her
and which reached her the same day.
In the note this cool trifler calmly an
nounced "that things hadn't turned out
just to suit him and 'ho ' had concluded
not to get married just yet. "
Of course the young woman was some
what overcome at first , but on reflection
she cheered up and carne to the conclu
sion that she had bad a narrow escape
from a bitter future. The people hero
were far from taking 'such a calm view
of the matter , having known the father
and daughter all their lives. To-day A

necessary to coat the young man should

A nridcRrnom in Splints.
Mr. William Lundio , superintendent
of the Consolidated Gas company's
works at Forty-second street and the
North river , Now York , was pretty
badly shaken up when the Rossovclt
hospital surgeons picked him out of the
debris of the retort house Sunday , Oc
tober 1C. and put him in their ambu
lance. His left leg was fractured and
his scalp was lacerated. After the
Roosevelt hospital doctors had put
twelve stitches in his scalp and placed
Mr. Lnndic's left leg in plaster of Paris
splints , tlloy admitted to Mr. Lundie's
bedside the young lady to whom ho is
engaged , and to whom ho was to have
been married the day following the col
lapse of the gas house.
But Mr. Lundio and his sweetheart
talkt-d " the matter over in the hospital ,
and" finally concluded to put the wed
ding off for one week. So all last week
the young lady called to see Mr. Lun
die ; and the surgeons smiled , and the
other patients in the ward smiled , be
cause the surgeons knew and had told
the patients that Mr. Lundio wouldn't
bo able to leave the hospital for weeks
and weeks to romo.
But the visits of the young lady
worked a wonderful effect on Mr. Lun
die , and yesterday morning ho toldHho
doctors that he was going to be married
on that day.
"But you can't , " said the doctors.
"But I shall , " wiid ho.
"But you musn't , " said they.
"But I shall , " ho repeated ; and when
the young lady didn't pay her morning
call as usual , the doctors began to see
that oven they had to stand aside when
Ctipid , M. D. , was managing the case.

A Double Barreled Marriage.
Atlanta , Ga. , Dispatch to New York
World : The Catholics of this city are
astounded to learn that Martin Amor
ous , a prominent member o' their
church , had been married to a Miss
Williams under a ceremony performed
by Rov. P. H. MoMahon , a Catholic
priest , and Rov. J. U. Hawthorne , a
Baptist preacher. Doubt was expreesed
as to whether , in the face of the laws of
the Catholic church , Father McMahon
had assisted at such n ceremony at all.
The correspondent called on Father
MeMahon , who paid : "Tho report is
false. I had nothing to do with Dr.
Hnwthorno. I would not lend myself
to violating the law of the church , even
by indirection. Mr. Amorous ar
ranged with mo to olllciato at
his marriage. The bride signed the
agreement usual in case of mixed mar
riages that her children should be
reared in the Catholic faith. I married
the couple and hold the marriage
license , which I will turn in to the
proper ollicors to-morrow. I am positive
that Dr. Hnwthorno did not marry them
before they came to mo , and as for any
thing which may have happened after
wards it amounts to nothing. "
Dr. Hawthorne was then sought , and
from him it was then learned that the
couple had been remarried by him on
their drive back from Father ilcMahon's
residence ; that he' knew nothing , how
ever , of the previous marriage ; that ho
also was in possession of a marriage
license" , whicn ho shbuld' have placed
upon record. This developed the curi
ous fact that Armorous had taken out
two licenses , had been married twice to
the same lady , and that while ho is
abroad upon a wedding tour ho leaves
the clergymen behind him struggling
