A Death-Bed Marriage.
San Francisco Call : Among the death
notices of yesterday is one recounting
the untimely demise-of a young lady
who was widely known , in this city ,
where she was" born and bred , whoso
last days on earth were heightened by
a borro'wful romance which is very un
usual. This was no less an event than
the solemnization of a marriage on the
verge of the grave.
One of the contracting parties was
Miss Nellie Vale , a daughter of the late
Gregory Yale , who was ono of the cele
brated lawyers of early days. For more
than a year past she had boon suffering
from the ravages of that fell destroyer ,
quick consumption , and every effort
made to stay its fatal progress had
proved unavailing , and at 2 a. m. yester
day the slender cord that bound her to
her family was severed , and _ her soul
spead other realms.
In early youth Miss Yale met and was
loved by O. P. Vance. His love was re
ciprocated , and during their youth days
on into miitmmlifn their vow * of CO" '
btancy were kept zealously , anxiously
tuVftUig : ! the day when their lives might
bo bound logether in the sacred tie.
After some time her lover bought
other Holds of labor , and Miss Yale departed -
parted for the east. While there she
contracted the fatal disease. She i-c-
turued to her parents' homo , where ,
during her long sickness , she received
every attention that loving hearU
could prompt. Steadily the patient
grow weaker. Her constant lover was
apprised of her condition and making
all haste , he arrived on Friday after
noon from Denver , where his lot had
finally boon cast , bowed down with
grief , and their meeting was most af
On Sunday afternoon the present
ment of death was so strong that the
young lady desired to bo married to her
faithful lover. A consultation was 'hur
riedly hold , upon the conclusion of
which it was decided to perform the
marriage ceremony. A license was
procured , and , dressed in her wedding
trousseau , which had been procured a
year bcforo , these in attendance care
fully bore the wasted form of the young
bitlTerer to the parlor.
There , surroundedby her relatives
and friends , the touching union of two
hearts soon to bo parted forever was af-
.fected. With a voice filled with emo
tion , Rev. Edgar Lion , of the Episcopal
church , ( an old school-mato ) , read the
marriage ceremony amid the profound-
cst grief and tears.
Her heart's greatest desire had been
fulfilled , and gradually the newly made
bride sank to peaceful rest , attended to
the last by her borrowing husband.
Sim Tired Quickly of Matrimony.
Bedford ( Eng. ) Gazette : What is the
whole duty of a bridegroom , whonafter
the wedding and the breakfast , ho Hurts
himself alone with his bride in an
empty railway compartment ? I do not
pretend to give an authoriativo answer ,
but I imagined that a few terms of en
dearment , and po&sibly an occasional
caress would not bo considered quite
out of place. This seems to have been
the opinion of the young lady who was
married at Accrington the other day
to a Mr. John Smith. The blushing
bride had not been married before , but
she was naturally surprised and dis
tressed by the proceedings of her hus
band. They had scarcely left Accring
ton when Mr. Smith settled himself in
a corner , yawned once or twice and fell
into a deep slumber. It is possible that
Mrs. Smith was merely hurt by the
stolidity of his demeanor under condi
tions favorable to cheerfulness , not to
say enthusiasm. But it is certain that
for ono or both of these reasons , the
maiden slipped quietly out of the car
riage at the ilrst station , leaving behind
her only a slip of paper attached to Mr.
Smith's coat tails and bearing these
words : ' 'Tired of matrimony. Had
enough of it and gone homo to my ma.
Mary. "
In Ijovc With a Ohltiatuaii.
For some time past there has boon a
report current in. Washington to the ef
fect Hint ft liaridsomVyoung Intiy of tlmt
city was actually contemplating in nil
serioustiOHg the foolhardy act of Allying
herself in marriage-to a member of thti
Chinese legation. At Ilrst llltlecredonco
was placed in the report , for similar
ones llavo'been sut'nfloat MI frequently
during the past year or so that the pub
lic , wary of falliii 'into the trap of a
practical joke , havolearned todisrognrd
all such , save asnillustratlvo of the
siHi'optibilit'y of almond-oycd Celestials.
The stor.V as nowMblil is to the olToct
that the itifatuatcd'ifh'l has boon in the
habit for months pnt of strolling past
the legation every afternoon on which
the weather was propitious for a stroll
with the attacho. hjThose interested in
the progress of this little affair aver
that "Sister An , " seated high in her
watch-tower , on the lookout for the res
cuing horseman , was not moro lynx-eyed
than the Chinaman , who I'antuously
bolted forth from the doors of the lega
tion simultaneously with the appear
ance of the aforesaid young woman , who
possesses charms of face and figure
which have completely subjugated the
Asiatic heart. Ever mindful of the
happy stroll in the gloaming , the ro
mantic swain never neglected to provide
himself with a beautiful boMiuot , which
ho presented to the object of his adora
tion each afternoon. Of late this peri
patetic style of courtship has been
abandoned for the 'more practical and
satisfactory one which Hmls expression
in hiking the beloved to the theater ,
and sitting beside her with that apnro-
priativo air which proclaims so plainly
to onlookers that it is a case of "two
souls with but a single thought , two
hearts that beat as one. "
A Itnmnntic Marriage.
Philadelphia Times : The marriage
of Mr. Winiield Scott Fullerton , of
Greoley , Colo. , to Miss Emma C. Ritter ,
of Camden , a few days ago , has brought
to light a romantic story. Ten years
ago the bride and groom wore attend
ants at the Fourth Baptist churchCam-
den. Mr. Fullerton was a the
Sunday afternoon prayer meetings , and
Miss Ritter sang in the choir at the
church services. They mot frequently
and their friendship soon ripened into
a warmer feeling. In 1877 Mr. Fullerton -
ton , with several friends , emigrated to
the west. He took a tearful leave of his
sweetheart , and promised to write to
her often and return for her when ho
made his fortuuo in the great west. The
party , after drifting through a number
of settled places , finally joined a colony
which had taken Horace Groelsy's ad
vice , and founded a town in Colorado
which they called. Greeley : Fullurton
soon tired of grubbing in the now set
tlement and went on the plains as a cow
boy , but this proving uncongenial , ho
finally obtained a commibsion as assist
ant agent of the Ute tribe of Indians
under General Meeker. After some
months' residence among the Utes , ho
was dispatched to Washington on an
official mission by General Meeker , aud
was surprised upon.iis arrival there to
hear of the MeekerJ massacre and the
captivity of the women.
Fullerton returned'to ' the pcono of the
masracre with a body of troops , and ,
after the famous puiisuit of the Utes ,
was instrumental inr rescuing the cap
tives. Ho then returned to Greoley
and , engaging in fctook raising , soon
amassed a fortune. ' < His correspondence
with Miss Rittui * in tiamden had gradu
ally grown less frjuquent and finally
closed altogether , and ho became ac
quainted with a daughter of General
Meeker and ilnally married her. About
three 3fears ago his | Bfo died , leaving
ono child. The wealthy ranchero con
tinued to amass wealth , but his home
was a lonely ono , yml his thoughts reverted -
verted to his formertriends in the cast
and especially to the sweetheart whom
ho had neglected. He returned to Camden -
den in January last , and his friends
hailed him as ono returned from the
Ho found that Miss Ritter was still
unmarried and true to her first love.
The result was a renewal of the affec
tions which the changes of a decade had
not severed , and preparations wore
made for the marriage , which was con
summated a few days ago.
Deserted , But Plucky.
New York Journal : Another instance
of man's perfidy and woman's misplaced
confidence and desire for wealth has
just boon brought to public attention by
the proceedings commenced by Lawyer
Benjamin Hoffman to secure the annul
ment of the marriage ot i > tr5. mutuuil
Stern to Josef Schrurrer. Mr. Sohrurrer
is now residing in a Hungaria prison.
On September 15,188. ) , after a court
ship of a few weeks Mrs. Stprn was led
to the altar for the second time and be
came Mrs. Schrurror , and as she sup
posed , the wife of a Hungarian banker ,
for such had Schrurrer represented
himself to be. His mission in America
ho said , was to establish a branch of his
banking house.
Ho mot Mrs. Stern and love prolonged
his stay , or at least ho told her so. She
believed all ho said , and gave him $ o,000
to deposit in the German Savings bank
in his own name. Some of this was
drawn out for household expenses , but
there was $4,450 to his credit on Janu
ary 30 , 1880 , when he bade his wife
good morning.
Ho did not return that night. The
next morning Mrs. Schrurror found
that her watch and jewelry wore miss
ing. Her suspicions wore aroused , and
she visited the bank. The money had
been drawn. Mrs. Schurrer concluded
that she had been deserted , and invoked
Mr. Hoffman's aid.
It was found that Schrurror , or a man
answering his description , had sailed
under another name on the steamer La
Gascogno for Havre. French detectives
wore notified to await his arrival and
the deserted woman followed him on
the next steamer with a detective.
Ho was traced to Buda-Pesth , where
his American wife caught up with him.
Although ho had shaved off his beard
and put on a pair ofujpectaclos , she fully
identified him. Ho had joined his Hun
garian wife and three children. His
American wife had him arrested and
tried for bigamy.
She secured her i watch , jewelry and
about $4,000 of the stolen money.
Schrurror was convicted of bigamy
October 1,1880 , and sentenced to two
years' imprisonment *
Determined Iftwora Married.
Si'itlNOKiKM ) , Mo.Dec. 1. The mar
riage of Perry Ragsdalo , aged twenty ,
and Miss Hattie Pottitt , aged fifteen ,
by Justice Mathie t\its \ afternoon , was
the denouement of a thrilling romance.
The girl is a daughter of Dr. J. G. Pot
titt , a physician and druggist , and the
young man is the driver of a potroloum-
oil-wagon. About a year ago an attach
ment sprang up between the two which
Dr. Pettitt and wife did all in their
power to discourage on account of the
youth's want of means , tender ago and
lack of education. The moro they op
posed the stronger became the affection
between the undauntiul youth and the
beautiful and ccomplished girl. They
continued to moot occasionally in spite
of all precautions. Early last spring
the girl disappeared , and the parents
ascertained that young Ragsdalo
know of lieu whereabouts. They
tried by every means to
induce him to toil where their
daughter was , but for three days with
out success. All the information was
that she was stopping at a respectable
place. As a last resort they had tie (
young ninii arrested for abduction , and
ho then consented to restore the girl to
her pn'ronts , oh condition that the case
'bo tllsmisKcd , which was done. The
mutual love of the pair win not thus to
bo overcome , however.
Last Monday night , while the doctor
and his daughter wore returning from
church , they were mot by Perry Hags-
dalo. with whom the girl exchanged
cordial Hiilutatlons.
"Go along about your business , "
gfullly said the doctor. "I am able to
take my daughter honn > . "
After walking a little further the
young lady said :
"I'll POO you to-morrow , Perry , " and
ho replied :
"All right. Hattie , " and shortened
the distance between them.
The infuriated doctor rushed upon
Perry and showered blow after blow
with his cane , cutting bloody gashes in
his head and face. Perry tried to de
fend himself , and menu\\hilo Haltie
screamed :
"Oh , papa , I never will forgivoyou for
this. "
Bystanders interfered , and the doctor
irtid daughter wont homo , while Perry
sought a burgeon.
Yesterday Perry hnd the doctorarrest-
cd'for assault and battery , and the case
came up bcforo Justice Mathie to-day.
The doctor and his wife consulted their
friends about what course to pursue , and
all advised that they let the lovers
marry. Finally they gave a tearful con
sent , and Perry already having a certifi
cate of freedom from his parents , they
were united in marriage by Justice
Mathie , and the case of assault against
Dr. Pettitt was dismissed. Thus the
curtain goes down 'upon the last act ,
leaving all parties reasonable happy ,
the young man being industrious and
free from bad habits.
The Ace of Itonmnce Not PIIHI.
Brainerd Special to St. Paul Pioneer
Press : A quiet marriage of Mrs. Magdalena -
dalena Schwartz to Andrew Robinson , a
young man , is the sequel to ono of the
most romantic experiences of local
knowledge. . When Brainordbid fair in
the early days to sometime be a town , a
thrifty . German named William
Schwartz arrived direct from the old
country and , it ( tor prospecting a little ,
made a rich discovery of fine clay for
brick , just above the city In the river
bank. He tecured a largo tract of land ,
several hundred acres , which adjoined
the original town site , and also the
town plat about the Northern Pacific
shops , East Brainerd. Ho built line
buildings and opened largo brick works ,
with a steam plant , and got rich in short
order. But his domestic matters were
in serious shape. His wife was
childless and , whether justly or
not , Schwartz became exceedingly
jealous of his buxom wife and the
common hands about the works , and
finally after a period of friction which
made their quarrel notorious , Schwartz
and she agreed to separate. He gener
ously gave to her all the property , then
worth a handsome sum , and he pulled
out to Germany and married a young
girl there and brought her at once to
this country. Ho did not stop here , but
wont to Oregon , to build a new home ,
settling at Corvallis , whence in a year
ho wrote that "ho was getting along
first rate. Have got a bouncing boy. "
Meanwhile Mrs. Schwartz , the first ,
conducted the old business here mak
ing 1,000,000 brick every year. Schwartz
had laid out a large addition in lots ,
which were sold oft , and the dam of the
Mississippi Water Power and Boom
company having been located on her
property , largely increased it in value ,
until $100,000 wouldn't buy all her inter
ests hero. Last winter among im
pecunious arrivals from Dakota was
Andrew Robinson , a young man about
twenty-five years old. Ho was illy-
elothed , ' without shoes , his feet wrapped
in gunny sacks , but borrowing an ax , ho
walked eight miles through the deep
snow to a job cutting cord-wood ho had
secured. He so spent the winter , and
not being a "pusher , " when spring
came ho had netted for the winter s
work , besides some better clothes , less
than ! fc0. ! Hoyorked a while in the
spring in a boarding camp at the dam
for little moro than his board until Mrs.
Schwartz , the owner of the hundred
thousand , hired him to chore about the
place. Not to probe the proce&s of
cupid thorp have been signs that
young Robinson was prospering. Ho
dressed up , grow a full beard , and drove
his employer daily into town in the
family buggy. Two weeks ago she
made a trip to Oregon , now supposed to
have been to make sure that she was
free to wed , and returning she per
mitted herself to become Mrs. Andrew
Robinson. Thus she , at about fifty se
cures a husband of about half the ago ,
while ho , from bo distressed a situation
as to this world's goods , becomes by all
odds the richest man , in clean-up money ,
in Brainerd.
