rim-ago Tribune : Three young bo-
cicty ladies \vho o weddings hail been
aimounet'd to taK'o place recently , were
obliged to liiivo tbo proposed ceremony
indefinitely postponed , on account of
their illness. It ii no wonder that
many you up ladies become ill an the
great day for them draws near. us the
amount of work they hnvo to do in
lirciwving for the event is enough to
wear them out entirely. The worry
and bother of dres-hinakinir and eons-taut
hliopping and the ineidential excite
ment might well jirostrato a delicat"
bride. Just think of the drewjOb the
younpoinon of moderate ideas genor-
ully blurt oil with. Of course , there's
the wedding go'vn. upon \Vhieh an end
of work ih expended , then the traveling
frock of the tour , and , say four morning
drebsen , with a like number of tei-
gowns uiid reception toilets , then hoiisc-
dres u * and tailor mudo walking suits ,
with one slightly more elaborate for
Huuuiiil occabions. This is only a part of
the outfit , for undergarments , house
hold linen , aild the thousand and one
etceteras must bo prepared.
As the fall is the rushing ' eabon in
the marriage mart , it is well to recall
OIKS or two interesting superstitions
that were religiously noted in the time
of our grandmothers. In the first place ,
according to an ancient and reliable
chronicle , there are thirty-two days in
the year that are especially unlucky for
marriages and journeys. They are as
follows : January 1 , 2 , 4 , r , , 7 , 10 and 15 ;
February ( ! , 7 and 18 ; March 1,0 and 8 ;
April ( i and 11 ; Mayo , 0 and 7 ; June 7
and 15 ; July 5 and 10 ; August 15 and 19 ;
September (1 ( and 7 ; October 7 ; Novem
ber 15 and li ( ; and December 15 , Hi and
17. Everybody knows that Friday is-
the most 'unlucky day for a wedding ,
while Wednesday and Thurfcday are the
luckiest. Our grandmothers believed
that it was a. most unfortunate thing if
the bride , after finishing her toilet and
leaving her looking glass , should turn
around again for : i last glnueo at her
self. It was also bad for her to see the
man she was about to marry after dress
ing tind before the time had come foi
the ceremony.
Hooker's Homnncc.
Chicago Tribune : Among the vie'
tims of the great Chicago lire in 1871
was a gentleman by the name of Hooker
He was a a wealthy merchant at the
time , but , like many otherb of his class ,
wab utterly ruined by the great fire. Af
ter this calamity the family was feup
ported by keeping boarders. Three 01
four years ago there came into the fnnv
ily to board two handsome youiif
Swedes , polished , well educated , am'
apparently the possessors of money , on <
called Swen and the other Olaf. Mr
Hooker's family is American. Tha
makes no ditTorence. The Swedish vis
itors were well pleased with their board
ing house , and the reason for the gen
nine satisfaction they displayed eve
the matter will bo better realized wlioi
it is told how they were both singli
gentlemen , and how in the Hooke
household there was at least one unmar
ricd daughter , a fresh , pretty , vivaciou
young lady , > yho flitted about the hall
and parlors like an angel , occabionall ;
pausing to illuminate some dark corne
with her bright smile.
That bright smile it was that huuntei
one of the the atTablo young Swedes-
young Olaf. The Swedish gontlcmci
in the meantime did not seem to care ti
engage in any regular business occupa
lion. They gave it out that they Inn
come to America , to study the manner *
customs , and language of the country
in the latter pursuit they wore assistei
greatly by the Hookers , and esneciall
by that daughto.- the household , An
nolle , who , by her careful attention l <
Olaf particularly , had him in a fo\ \
months so that ho could speak Unite' '
States like a native.
Of course there could ho only one sr
quel to all this mutuality of feeling , thi
kindly regard. lt\\as announced thn
Annette ami Olaf were engaged , and i
the early fall of 1585 the twain wer
made one. Their wedding trip include *
a visit to Lake Minnetonka , where the
staid two weeks enjoying llieir honoj
moon. From Minnetonka they ro tunic
to Chicago , and bidding an atTcclionat
farewell to the old folks bet out for Olaf
native land , where Olaf had propose
they should spend the remainder of Ihei
ilajs. After u brief stay in Londoi
they sped across to C'hristiania. Muc
lo her surprise Iho bride found a
elegant equipage fitted out wit
liveried driver and with footma
awaiting them at the steamship docl
and she hoard her husband gi\o bom
directions to the coachman by wluc
she inferred that the equipage was h !
own. She asked no questions. Th
pair were driven through the city int
an aristocratic suburb , ornamented wit
the line residences of wealthy peon !
and with the grounds and palaces of tli
nobility. When the most oxtei
hive and most magnigcent of all tli
palaces was reached the coachma
wheeled hi steeds in upon the ground
" Now , " .said Ohuf , "wo will alight ;
* untyou to come , in und look over th
palnco . and sco how the great of the
land live. ' ' Annette pared with ( two
upon the noble pile. At first she exhib
ited HhyncsH ut the thought of going in
and meeting the great people. Hut her
husband finally induced her to take a
walk through its halls. When they
came out ho asked her what she thought
of it. The young bride expressed her
admiration for what was really the
finest iialaeo in the vicinity of the great
city of Christiana. Ho listened to the
rapturous compliments that poured
from her lips.
"Annette. " he said slowly , "this is
your future home. ' ' It was afterwards
explained to her that her husband was
the son of a nobleman with a fortune of
$1U.OX,000. ( )
Olaf and his bride are now living
happily together in the great palace in
the suburbs of Christiana.

Kast Iladdam , Conn. , Corespondenco
Now York World : Hurt A. Ray ,
wealthy collln-trimming manufacturer
of this place , is the defendant in a
$15,000 breach of promise suit instituted
by the father of a society belle of
Isiuntie , to whom Mr. Kay had been
assiduously paying his attentions for the
past two or three years. Although a
sheriff is said to have made an attach
ment for the above sum on Mr. Hay's
mill , an attempt has been made to keep
the affair as secrctas possible , and even
the busiest gossip in town is unable lo
loll Iho name of Iho lady concerned.
The ease , however , will come to trial at
Middlotown next month.
Mr. Hay , who isa very handsome
young manbegan to ignore the beauties
of Hast Hnddam about three years ago
and turned his attention towards this
young Niantic lady. After months had
passed the gossips had it that the gentle
man had proposed and had been ac
cepted. Still no marriage announce
ment was made , which caused some
little talk. The pair were seen together
'n October. Shortly after , iyt itu
aid , the young lady's father sent
otter to Mr. Hay , commanding him
o "marry my darter or I'll .sue e. " '
Sir. Hay was astonished , because it was
lust what he had been intending to do ,
nit ho resented the insult , lie re-
eived a letter from hisalllanced which ,
bough full of love , did not refer to Iho
ild man's letter. Hardly a day has
' '
: > asscd after the young' lady's 'letter
Jnmo when into Mr. Hay's olllcor
niirchcd Sheritl Cone with the papers
nthe suit.
A reporter for Ihe Hartford Telegram
aw Mr. Kay about the matter. Said the
defendant in the suil :
"The simple facts of the case are
heso : 1 have been engaged for some
hue to a certain young lady living in
Niantic ; I have never said I would not
narry her , but her impetuous father
ms now instituted a breach of promise
buil against mo for $15,000. It looks
very much as though my prospective
'ather-in-law is working a gigantic
jlackmailing scheme and wants to live
n allluonee for Iho rest of his life. ' '
'Then I suppo-o you will marry the
' / " queried Iho reporter.
"It looks very likely under Iho cxist-
ng circumstances , " \\astjie reply.
"But what do you intend lo do about
"I will appear in the court at Middle-
own and fight it put. This breach of
iromibo suit is a big surprise to me , for
I intended to marry the ioung lady.1

An Alifient-Mintled Groom.
Charlie Moore , of Springfield , Ky. , a
well dressed young man of considerable
means , arrived in this city on last Sun
day morning , says the Louisville Com
mercial , at an early hour , having made
all nece-sary arrangements to bo a prin
cipal in a wedding which wnstolmvo
taken place on Sunday afternoon.
In the front room of an up-town con-
feclionery store on Sunday afternoon
the front blinds were closed and day
light was shut out , the gas was lighted
and everything about the apartment
put in order for a wedding ceremony ,
which was announced. The bride , Miss
Sallie Green , was in readiness , and her
friejids who had been invited lo witness
the nuptials wore on hand. They
waited and waited , and it was late in
the evening when the company dis
persed the groom failed to ap
pear. Where ho was or what
was the matter was a prob
lem no one could solve. The won Id-
bo bride , sick with disappointment and
completely broken down over the fail
ure of her lover to put in an appear
ance , was forced to tuko to her bed.
On coming to the city from his homo
Moore , in some way , lost some papers
from liis overcoat pocket , among them
the address of the young lady ho was to
narry. Arriving in the city ho looked
'or the missing paper , but to no pur-
) ese ; no one know or had ever heard
ell of the woman or her place of resi-
"ence. In despair lie was about to give
p Ihe search when ho ran IKTO--S an old
riend , and the two with renewed cour-
go set out to find the -place. Procur-
ng a carriage they started , and about
0 o'clock the couiilo were reunited and
satisfactory explanation made. Mr.
ml Mrs. Moore left for Springfield
Her Ihe marriage ceremony was per-
'ormcd. ' _

Wo drove in a closed carriage lo

' 'I cannot marry you without seeing

"nto my car , and after one moro long
uul desperate struggle I decided to

" 'Take a sharp knife , ' I shouted to a
'riend , 'and cut a hole around my face
nto the hat ; but see that you do it well ,
'or I cannot allow this expensive hat to

"The hole was cut , the clergyman saw-

Wedded In a Show Window.
Sometime ago the enterprising man
ager of a l.irgo clothing house in New-
: irk avenue , directly opposite the city
'mil in Jersey City , struck a happy
.bought and proceeded at once to ad
vertise it. His store has two hand
some show windows with great French
ilate glass fronts and a broad area be
hind them for u display. It occurred to
him that that would bo the place for a
public wedding , and ho gave it out in
ill quarters that ho would present to
room who would consent to wed his
bride in one of the windows a hand-
iOme suit to bo married in , and to the
groom and bride after the wedding , a
handsome suit of parlor furniture. Ho
received eleven applications from per
sons anxious to avail themselves of the
: > ffer. Two were from Patterson , one
from Newark and otherb were from more
distant points.
But Manager Mot'/.lor was not entirely
satisfied with any of them. Last Mon
day a handsome young follow called at
the store to make inquiries. Mr. Met/-
ler desired a Jorsoyman. The btrangci
said ho was not u Jersoyito himself , but
that his proposcd _ other and better half
was. Ho gave his name and address us

to wed 'was Ida Belle .Tohne > on , of Ilack-
onsaek. Mr. Mot/lor made inquiries
concerning them , and gave them notice
that he would accept them , and that the
wedding would bo performed at 11
o'clock Thanksgiving morning.
No marriage that has occurred in .Tor-
soy City in years has attracted such r
concourse of people. The streets won
crowded with a struggling mass of hum
unity. The windows of all the storci
commanding a view of Iho window won
nlivo with people , and the steps of the
city hall served as places of view. Hopes
were strung across to keep the throiif.
back , and die police were called out tc
preserve order. At 11 o'clock a coacl
drove up to the store front , and the bride
dressed in white moire , was hamlet"

Philadelphia Times : In the great

portrait of a beautiful and noble looking
lady. The picture was painted about

son , destined to be one day Leo XIII.
From this mother. Countess Anna 1'ecci ,
the child received his first instructions
in the principles of purity and upright
ness which have marked his life. When
Monsignor O'Reilly was visiting the
Pceei family the third son of the family
said to him : "She was the soul of every
good work of piety and benilicence that
was .set on foot in the town. Indeed ,
she started many of them herself , bill

never made her neglect her homo
