When do I mean to marrvj Well ,
'Tis Idle to dispute with fate ;
But if you choose to hear mo tell ,
Pray listen while I fix the date.
Whan daughters haste with eager feet ,
A mother's daily toiUo share ,
Can make the , puddings .which they cat ,
And mend the stockings which they wear )
When maidens.look upon a man
As in himself what they would marry ,
And not as anny.noldlert scan
A sutler or u commissary ;
When gentle ladies who have got
The offer of a lover's hand
Consent to share his earthly lot ,
And do not mean his lot of land ;
When young mechanics are allowed
To llnd and wed the farmer's girls
Who don't expect to bo endowed
With rubles , diamonds and ] > earls ;
When wives , in fact , shall fully give
Their hearts and hands to aid their spouses ,
And live as they were wont to live
Within their sires' ono-story houses.
Then , maiden If I'm not too old
Kcjolccd to quit this lonely life.
I'll brush my beaver , eea'-o to scold ,
And look about uic for u wife )
Marriage u Uargaln.
Pull Mull Gnzcttco : Mftrrinpo is still
too often u bargain , but tit least it is no
longer lui entirely ono sided bargain.
It is tending towtird the only true ideal
life-long companionship n partnership
on equal tormn , with equal give und
take on both Hides. Women no longer
feel bound to render that implicit
obedience which which was considered
do rlguour in our great grandmother's
days , and men no longer universally
demand it. Husbands , moreover , are
beginning to learn that the prime duty
IB not to look after their wives. The
very sentence is indicative of the most
ghastly misapprehension of the whole
ideal of matrimony. The general feel
ing of society condemns a man who
lives to rule his wite on the same prin
ciple as n pasha- rules his harem. And
indeed the whole scheme of modern
lifo makes it practically impossible for
him to do BO. A married woman en-
Hoys , as it rule , complete liberty during
the lifelong day , and even at night it is
frequently impossible for a busy man to
escort his wife. Thus everything turns
on the relations between the married
couple. If a girl Is really in love with
the man she marries she may bo trusted
with any amount of subsequent free
dom. If not , not ; and therefore wo nay
that the injudicious and worldly parents
who are responsible for the great ma
jority of ill-assorted unions are also re
sponsible for the many evil results
which are to bo t > con in society at this
day. For it is a fact that lots of English
girls are as much forced into marriage
as the French girl , whose husband is
selected while she is yet in the convent.
t , Not by main force , no but by the whole
i tone of her education , by the exngger-
' ' atod fear of being an old maid , by the
obvious necessity of making way for a
younger sibter , by the persistent schemIng -
Ing of her parents , and by her own
longing for emancipation. For marrl-
Rf6 | undoubtedly doon mean emancipa-
ti B to most women ; and it is precisely
those who look forward to it most who
arc likely to make the worst use of it.
Berry Wall's Marriage.
New Yurie Telegram : There was a
( hitter of excitement throughout the
dominions of Dudedom this morning
when it was noised about that the king.
K. Berry Wall I. , had quietly slipped
over to Washington and taken unto him
self a consort.
All but a few of the immediate court
iers of his majesty were in a state of
mental collapse from the shock.
None of those intimate at court , how-
overwere mucn surprised at the unique
manner King Berry had adopted to
enter the bonds of matrimony.
"Berry is original if he is anything , "
said a callow youth , who was discussing
the wedding with a party of friends at
breakfast this morning at Uelmonico's.
"Ho , was not going to follow any old ,
worn out custom. I always thought that
when Berry made up his mind to marry
he would do so without resorting1 to con
ventional and ancient methods. His
schemes never bagged at the kneesyou
know ! "
"How was it done , " old chappie ? "
asked a well known swell who had joined
"Why , no had become smitten with a
beauty over in Washington , named Miss
Melbourne , and promptly proposed to
her. .She of course , accepted him on
the spotand they decided forthwith to
go over to'Baltimore and get married as
once. They took the lovely creature't
"Arriving in Baltimore Berry took
time to go and change his clothes for he
could not think of getting married in
the same suit that ho had worn for an
hour and a half , and then the bride , her
mother and himself got into a carriage
and drove to the Baltimore club where
Berry got an old chappie named N.
Winslow Williams , nnd'then they had
a beastly time trying to find the ofllcial
who issues a marriage license.
The low fellow WPS not at his office ,
but they finally found him and then
they went to the house of a jxirson and
there the knot was tied. Then they
took the next train back to Washing
"Bo gad. that's romantic , " said the
swell who had just joined the party.
"Just like Berry , old boy. "
"Mrs. Wall must be a lovely crea
ture , " remarked one of the party , "for
Berry was very hard to please. Then ,
just think of all the lovely girls he could
have married at any time during the
last ton years. "
"Wonder who she is ? ' ' asked another.
"Of course she is an heriess. "
This last question is just what every
body around the clubs is asking. No
ono seems to know who the young lady
is except that her father is employed in
the war department at Washington and
for that reason it is not thought that
Mrs. Wall is qverburdonud with wealth.
The king of the dudes had not been
soon about the New York club or h is
other favorite haunts for nearly ten
days , and it was given out that ho had
gone to Washington , where ho intends
to pans the winter. In fact , he has
spent the most of his time at the capital
since ho went there last October to at
tend the "races.
When ho did como over here ho was
inclined to bo very quiet , and several of
his friends remarked the change in his
manner. He was decidedly distrait and
behaved in an absent-minded away.
Major Melbourne , the king's now
father-in-law , holds a humble position
in the war department , which Iwas se
cured for him by General Logan about
seven years ago. Logan had known
him in the Mexican war , and after
ward IIB a resident of Springfield , III.
After the Mexican war Melbourne set
tled in the south , and was in very com
fortable circumstances , but ho lost
everything by the war , and at ono time
he was employed as a reporter on sx
newspaper , but most of the time he de
pended upon his wife , who kept a board
Hovering on the Vcrgo.
St. Paul Globe : Young men , the
largo majority of you arc hovering
around on the verge of matrimony ,
shivering like a mouse-colored terrier
and afraid to step off. The great ma"
jority of you know just where you can
jmt your linger on a girl who would
marry you at a moment's notice , but you
are afraid that you couldn't satisfy the
landlords , coal dealers and milliners
that a man always weds when he mar
ries a woman. You lire not men ! You
are simply cowards , who see a prize
hanging above your head and have not
the moral courage. , to ascertain if your
arm is long enough and strong enough
to pick it. My advice to you is. if you
have got a job and you are earning fair
wages to get married and go to house
keeping if you have to begin with an
oil steve , a candle and a bed lounge.
This may seem to you a small beginning ,
and BO it is ; but , once married , the
money that you now throw away in your
endeavors to quiet your restless -soul
will go into furniture and little nick-
nucks , and you will 'soon wake up to the
fact that you are the owner of a homo ,
and that word means u great deal to a
young fellow who has been swimming
around in the ocean of lifo over since ho
was big enough to shave himself , with' '
his chin just above the water. ' ,
Wedded a Native. " " _
London Cablegram to New York"
World : Stirling , sitting in chancery di
vision to-day , hod before him a roman
tic marriage case , arising out of the ,
death of Commander Bethell , who was'
shot by Boers in 1884 in an engagement
in which Sir Charles Warran also took
part. Commander Bethellu few months
before his death , had become enamored
of a native girl belonging to the Bara-
long tribe. Ho married her according
to the rites of the tribe , the ceremony.
consisting of the slaughter of an ox , the
head of which was sent to the mother of
the bride , while the father was provided ,
with u plow. The name of the brido'was
About ten days after the death of
Commander Bethell she gave birth to a
daughter , who was subsequently bap
tized under the name of Mcbetello ,
meaning the mother of Bethell. In
support of these statements Montsioa ,
African king , the chief of the Boraledo
cavalry , made uflldavit to the effect that
Teepee \vas duly married to Commander'
Botholl , and that she was not before
married. Commander Botholl , by hia'
will , left a certain number of heifers to
TeeiKX ) , and directed that if the child
wore born it should bo educated in
England after it reached eight years of
age , and if u boy he should enter the
English army , but Teepoo'should for
feit her property if she behaved im
Commander Bcthpll loft considerable
property in Yorkshire , and the question
before the court was as to whether the
marriage was a legal one , and the
daughter consequently legitimate and
entitled to the property. Hastings ,
queen's counsel , contended this was not
a polygamous marriage , and was consequently
quently valid. There may have been
polygamy in the Baralong tribe , but
Commander Botholl lived with Teepee
as his only wife , and had no intention
of committing polygamy.
A Pretty Wedding.
Philadelphia North American : Ono
of the prettiest weddings seen in Wash
ington for some time was that of Miss
Kilbourne and Mr. Frank Gordon , son
of ox-Senator Gordon , of Georgiawhich
took place on Thursday at noon at St.
John's church. The rain cumo down in
torrents , to bo sure , and not oven one
little faint sunbeam came forth to greet
the bride , but the church was so softly
lighted and the chancel so completely
filled with tall palms , call a
lilies , and great bunches of holly ,
that , in a way , the contrast made it all
the more charming , except , of course ,
for the unfortunate bride and brides
maids , who had to walk in their satin
slippers over the damp mating laid from
sidewalk to the church door. The chor-
ibler bops , with bunches of holly pinned
on their white surplices , mot the bridal
party at the entrance and proceeded
them up the aisle , singing a wedding
.hymn , a pretty custom , by the way , but
a little awkward for the bride , who haste
to wait at the chancel rail after the cere
mony is over for fully live minutes un
til the choir gets in position to escort her
out of the church.
Episode at a Bachelors' Banquet.
Savannah News : Ono of the most
interesting episodes at the bachelors'
banquet at Uainsvillo last Thursday
night was the receipt of a box sent in
by one of Gainesville's most cultivated
and brilliant young ladies. It contained
a sheet of white pajwr , on which were
placed the following articles : First , a
handsomely embroidered crimson satin
sachel containing n few matches , with
the motto : "A better match than you
have made. " Next , the picture of nn
owl sitting on a holly bush ; motto :
"You are alone in the world. " Lastly ,
a beautiful briurwood pipe , to the stem
of which was tied an elegantly em-
brojdered tobacco pipe made of mag-
netia-colored satin ; under thcso was
written : "Bulwer has said 'there is
more solid comfort in a good pipe than
Irt'a good wife , ' and you all appear to
agree with him. " When this was passed
around for the inspection of the boys
e vorypno pronounced'ittho best hit th'at
had been given them.
. , . , Jealousy andJDcath.
lErio , Pa. , Special to the Globe-Demo
crat- : The grave closedito-day over the
remains of the lovesick ( twain , James
Bunco , who sentaball crashing through
his brain in a fit of dnsiuje jealousy.
Brunce went to visit Mies Lillian Pcte'r-
bon,1 a country maiden on. Brown hill ,
and upon whom ho had been waiting
for-some time. A neighbor who had
regarded Miss Lydia with , favor called
in to spend the evening with the
family. A quarrel arose between the
lovers and Bunco loft his inamorata and
rushed from the house. He had harly
cleared the doorstop when ho drew a
revolver and shot himself through the
head. The young woman was the first
to reach the young man , but ho never
spoke. She grew frantic and rushed
shrieking into the house where she pro
cured a largo knife. She made ono cut
at her throat and was in the act of re
peating the operation when the strong
hand of her other.admirer secured the
weapon. Crazed by the terrible trag
edy , she has to bo kept uuder constant
surveillance. The shock was to much
for her , and it is now feured that she
will never recover her mind. The in
jury which she inflicted upon hor&olf
is not sufficient to disfigure her.
Something Against Bach.
The man who would like to marry
finally became a bachelor because ho
The pretty girls so demure.
The clever ones so alarming.
The talkative ones so tiresome.
The merry ones make such game of a
The sentimental ones are so spoony.
The horsey ones are so outrageous.
The nautical ones are so inconsider
The little ones are so little.
The large ones are so very large.
Novelist Mury J. Holmes : It is , I
think , an erroneous idea thatearly mar
riages are a hindrance rather than a
help to the success in life and the men
tal development and happiness of the
parties. That this is sometimes the
case is true , but I believe that more
young men , and girls too , huvo been
saved from ruin and wretchedness by an
early marriage than huvo been ruined
by it. There is something inspiriting
and ennobling in the possession of a
homo and a family to work for and
beautify , and if the girl and boy are
poor.I should still say marry young , and
work together for the homo and the
competence , which will be all the more
enjoyable because they are the result of
toil and self-denial. Don't wait until
you can afford to begin just where your
Owing to the lateness of the season vre find ourselves overstocked with fine and medium priced overcoats , and in order to

An Kpldcinlc of Mnrrlmre.
New York Sun : They say the devil
laughs every time ho hears wedding
bells. Ho must be on the broad grin
nowadays. At some of the fashionable
churches in New York it is hardly nec
essary to take down the awnings or take
up the curpeta leading from the portals
to the curbstone , from Monday morning
to Saturday night ; and one parson is
rumored ( to liavo married BO many
couples that , when a baptismal party
confronted him , ho asked , " What
"Susan Ann , " replied the godfather.
"Sucan Ann , do you take this man for
your lawfully wedded husband , for richer
or poorer' , for better or worho , through
sickness and "
"For mercy's sake , don't marry mo to
the baby1' wnixncred the godfather.
Thus brought with a round turn , the
good minister stopped in time , and
chri t < > netl.Susan Ann instead of marry
ing her at the unusual ago of three
months. ' i
1'he marriage tees of some clergymen
must have amounted to more than their
salaries last month. There is hardly any
sorvico-tv man BO willingly pays out his
money for , Unless it bo for a divorce
soino'yeiirs later. The pastor of a
wealthy church wedded a rich man re
cently to a , very beautiful girl , who had
been an intimate friend for years of the
parson's wifo' . She started from the
church door on a trip to Europe , nnd us
the minister shook cpngratulatingly the
hand of the now groom ho felt a hard
substance slipped into his own. It turned
out to bo a hands'omc. locket pendant ,
with the bride's initials and these of
the pastor's wife done in diamonds.
"IUl put your picture in it at once , "
said the pleased lady : "it is the lirst
wedding fee that has como to mo. "
So she posted.off to u photographer
and ordered a reduced head of her hus
band. She had hardly got homo when
a messenger informed her that folded
and refolded and jammed in behind the
glass , they had found a hundred dollar
bill. The Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Psalter
Service are awaiting a letter from the
other side to know to whom the money
belongs , as the Mrs. Rev. Dr. S. vows it
goes with the locket , and the locket be
longs to her.
Tlip American Girl.
The American girl is thus pictured
by John Habberton , in a new novel :
' She was the oldest child , so she had
her own way ; she was pretty , so she hud
always been petted. She was twenty ,
so she knew everything that she thought
worth knowing. She had long before
reconstructed the world ( in her own
mind ) just as it should bo , from the
standpointthat , it ought to oxibt solely
for her benefit. Not bad tempered , on
the contrary cheerful and full of high
spirits , she. was , nevertheless in perpet
ual protest against everything that was
not exactly as she would have it , and not
all the manners that careful breeding
could impart could restrain the uncon
scious insolence peculiar to young and
belf-sutislicd natures. "
Patti , it is snld , is losing ground in Paris ,
ono of her Rrentcst strongholds in former
times , as fust us she has been here. The an
nouncement that she was going to sing in u
benefit performance for the sufferers of the
Opera Comiquo lire , caused little or no inter
est. The Parisians shrug their shoulders
when they hear she still clings to "Ah , Furs'
eMi , " from "Truvlata ; " to the mud sccno
from "Luciu'1 and to the "Echo Song , " which
Jenny Lind introduced into this country
forty yours ago.
