Paul Pioneer Press : .Ruby.City is the
'principal place in the Salmon river
mining district in c'astqrn Washington'
'territory. It is'a typical mining town ,
and contains n hotel large .enough to ac
commodate fifty persons , several restau
rants , anuuiborof saloons and other'
'stores aud houses , 'including a school
building. Recently' the taxpayers
elected three school directors'who in
'turn elected oneof their n umber ja hardy
minor , who has worked with the pick allover
ever the world , teacher of the school.
'He resigned at thd on-d of a month on-
the ground thnt ho' did not' possess1.tho
necessary amount of "lurnin' " to.hold ,
the position. The directors on ' being ,
put to the test of designating his sue- ,
.ccssor , found that no ono in town was
competent to hold theplace. . A bright'
idea took possession of the president of.
'the board , a.tall , slim man of Bill Nye
aspcc.t , and ho inserted advertisements
in the papers of' PortlandTacbma arid
Seattle calling for ' 'lady teacher of ox-
'poribnco'none ; 6.hoV..ucod | apply. " Ho
received many application * aud selected
' ' ' ' '
' . , Three ' ' \ vcok0ng6 to-day the stage
that runs between 'Spokane Falls and
Ruby .City landed at the 'latter place a
medium-sized , winsomeyoung' woman
df twenty'with dark bliio oycs and long ,
silken'hair. She was a typical brunette ,
and us she was the first white , woman
'who had sot foot in the town she at-
.tmcted universal attention. The 'wily
'president of the board had permitted
nor'-to 'drrrivd uuhoraldedtaiid when
she step-petl out of tho'coach ho warmly'
welcomed , her , making .tho remainder
of the male population- . the village
green with envy. Ho' escorted her in
triumph to the hotci , and .when taking
leave said ho would call that evening to.
confer with-hor concerning tho'school.
.Ho came according tothe .agreement ,
but was chagrined to find the beautiful
miss had bestowed her affections upon
tho' forty-fix year old proprietor of the
.hotel.-Whenhe broached the school
topic she rcfe.rred himto her husband
that jvns to bo. The president turned
away with a'sad heart , but was present
that evening at a little marriage cere
mony.in the .hotel lobby in which the
hotel proprietor and schoolmarin wore
the contracting parties' .
.Taking resolution from despair the
president went through the applications
and chose one , the author of which put
in her appearance in Ruby City four days
later. She was Miss Campbell , and she
came from Spokane Falls. She had
been in town only four hours when fcho
promised to be the bride of the boss
saloonkeeper. The school president
felt discouraged and was not scon in the
streets for four days.
He had not been idle , however , nnd
towards the end of the week a Miss Wood
arrived from Seattle to take charge of
the school. She said she was twenty-
two , but sho'looked to bo thirty-six.
She was about as ugly as Medusa , and
the president smiled to himself when ho
mused'thnt in nil likelihood she would
tench the young idea how to shoot some
thing else besides other people's pigs ,
whereas her Vcnus-liko predecessors
had not been granted an opportunity.
She never assumed the duties of her
position , for the proprietor of- the gen
eral merchandise store made her his
wife two days after she arrived.
The president was now reduced to the
verge of despair and he knew not which
way to turn. To save his life he could
not secure a teacher. Every ono that
came was married inside of forty-eight
hours. Ho evolved a scheme in his own
mind , and last Thursday six good-look
ing young women from Portland and
Seattle arrived in the camp. Five were
married by Friday evening , the stage-
driver , two saloon-keepers , a restaurant
man , and a mine-owner being the lucky
bridegrooms. Saturday morning the
sixth wedding took place , and the school
president was the groom. Ho has deter
mined to make his wife principal of the
school , to which no on objects , and matters -
tors will soon be running smoothly in
the camp. The only man of any promi
nence who did not get a wife was a pros'
pcctor named Jones.
Overwhelmedbj-Matrimonial Token *
Snm Goddard advertised for a wife in
a Georgia paper two years ago. Sam it
a countryman who bears a striking resemblance
semblance to the uncle of his country
though ho is not so well dressed. Hi :
advertisement was about as follows :
"Wanted A. wifo.
"I want a good , affectionate wife wlu
will bo a mother to my little children.
She must bo a good housekeeper and
well disposed. I prefer that she b <
light complected , but no red-headed
woman need apply. I have a homo
with four children , 200 bushels of corn
and fifty bushels of sweet potatoes.
"I catch 'possums enough to cook wltl
the sweet potatoes , "
This advertisement was published
several times in Rome , and was coplet
all pvor the country and in several foreign
oign uapors. The replica began t <
come in the second day from dilforen
.parts of the state , then from adjoluinf
States , and finally from 'every par
of the union , After -a month ese
so letters began to < come fron
other countries. A number'tcami
from England and Scotland , ono or tw
from Germany , and one from New Zen
laud , Tliore- were over l000 ; letters ii
all. At.flrst , Goddard was blitlio nnd
joyful. Ills Bpltll : < j rose'and bubbled

etrations. There were locks''bf . hair ,

bitc'd .these trophies' > vith undiguisod
satisfaction , and all "went merrily with
. .himthen. . 'Ho was .the most courted miin
in America- ' ' ' . . .
By and by there carhe ft reaction. The
great doopi'of his heart were broken up
as his ponderous and uncouth affections'
were gradually dissipated among n
legion of admirers. Ho became despon
dent , and finally , when the foreign let
ters began to.'como in with twonty-flvo
cents extra postage on every other one ,
ho was sick at' heart. The subject
Boomed to'have gathered terrors with
its numbers , and the reality ot 1,000
sweethearts was-far'nioro terrible than
the rosy anticipation that had preceded
it. After two years deliberation Sam
put all these loves aside and took unto
.ilmself a wife of his homo acquaintance. ,
This Is a true story , arid SUm'Goddardi

San Francisco Examiner : Chung Ah
Kow , a Chinaman who arrived In this
city about six month ago from Texas en
route to China with a pretty white wife
and two children , was met at the ferry
landing by a reporter ns ho was cross
ing the bay to visit some friends in
Oakland , in company with his family
and a servant. On being addressed by
n reporter Ah Kow appeared BO affable
nnd willing to talk that the scribe joined
him on the boat. When seated his
eyes beamed with a sort of quizzical in
telligence ns ho remarked :
"I quite understand your curiosity.
You have noticed that I have a white
wife and n pair of pretty little girlsand
you want to know how I came by them.
Isn't that so ? "
"Well , I expect you have guessed it , "
remarked his companion , . "but a police
officer at the ferry has already told me
that you were a cattle king from

looked tip rather suddenly. *

Wo got married though , all right , and.

that It would bo 'all right , that I. had

San Francisco Chronicle ; Among the

catch of whale nnd bone was one. who
foil in love with'iprotmbly the .homeli

sack where the SoOO was stowedaway , ' -
Oho is known as "Blind Dick" and .the

pair tried to sit.each' . other out. -
This thing of alternating in warmth '
of the dark-skinned whaler's' bride be
came irksome to the rivals and in-theso
cold days and nights was anything but
pleasant. An end had to come of it
sooner or later , and it did come On last
Saturday night somewhere about the
hour of midnight. While "Scarenosed
Charlie was on the inside of the room
door with the thermometer at blood
heat , "Blind Dick" was on the other
side of the room door , blowing through
it like a cyclone. Then it was that
"Blind Dick's" patience gave out and
planting his mighty foot against the
bolted door , ho burstod it in , much to
the annoyance of "Scarcnosed Charley"
and his dusky companion , who were as
happy as might bo expected under the

THIEF AND BRIDEGROOM.
A valuable estate at Sedgofield near
Darlington , England , suddenly changed
hands about forty years ago , the gentle
man then in jtotisession quietly resign
ing his rights , ' ! ! he ever had any , to the
cousin of his deceased mother. The ;
story attending the occurrence is very
remarkable , and can bo vouched foe by
the writer , whoso It-lends were indi
rectly interested 'in ' the affair.
The dwelling' , known as Sltchado
grange , Sitchado being a corruption of
St. Chad , stood in a fine situation , about
a mile , from .the present railway station.
The land attached to it was valuable ,
yielding R rental ) of .X7 ,000 ft. year. In
1810 Thomas iLcatham was the pro
prietor , his'anccstors having held the
cstatc'for goncrationsprobably ; from the
time of Henry VIII. . when it was a pri
ory. . . Mr , Lcutluuu had ono daughter ,
Maria. She was then but twenty years
of ago , and a very handsome and ac
complished young woman.
A young farmer named Topping was
employed by Mr. Leatham to manage
what was known as the Homo farm ,
some forty acres of land which Mr.
Leatham cultivated for his own use eras
as a matter of taste. Topping and
Maria fell in love. The young farmer
was a very handsome , stalwart fellow ,
and took the fancy of Mies Lcntham.
Doubtless they formed some plans to
bring about a marriage ; but , however
that may bo , relations existed between
them which were not sanctioned by law.
The. consequences of this familiarity
soon became apparent , and the father
bo uma a' UIowur-- * ! length communi
cated- his suspicion ! -to his daughter.
.Sho-ndnVitted that eho wag in n contii- '
tion-to become n mother , but poslUlvqly
refused to disclose the -paternity of the
child ho boroj Mr. Lestham. wns dle-
tfuitcd , ana Dcirgca and Cntrcatcu ills'
only child to toll him tho. iiamoof. . her
betrayer' , BO that , if ho should prove to'
bo In her own. condition in' life , mar
riage might removeIho.drctidful stigma
which would otherwise rest upon aor
and himself. But sho- was obdurate and
declared that , she would nicot death
bather than'do as desired , uhlcss her
re traycr consented.
Mr ! Leatham look around In'vaiafor
any one on whom he could fix , as the
guilty person. No. man , to.his know
ledge , had ever visited 'his > daughter ,
and' no inquiries , made judiciously ,
could.throw any light upon the subject.
That someone was or had been in the
habit of visiting his daughter secretly
ho had no doubt , but how or at what
time's .ho could , not comprehend. Ho
determined , however , to keep sv watch ,
' and for that purpose' took all necessary
measures. ' '
About' itiis tlmb three i highwaymen
Ko'ndr.ick , . Jones and ' TJllathorne In
fested the roads between Darlington
nnd Newcastle. They had'.committed
many depredations with impunity , and
at length the sheriff of Durham , with a
posse of constables , took them in 'hand
and captured Jones and Ullathorno near
Ohester-lc-streot. . ' 'Kendrick escaped ,
and , going round.the'-city of Durham ,
went up toward Darlington. , There hemet
mot a servant - -carrying' valise ol
clothes to his master who was in . the
neighborhood.He took the valise'and
jnauo' his way. to-the small town'.of
Yarm , whore' ho put up at a hostelry ,
representing that ho..was going to visit
a married siotor in the neighborhood.
, Ho was out of .funds , however , nnd had
to devise tfomoscheme.to raise 'money.
Attiring himself In the stolen garments
and ultoring'his'appearance as much as.
possible he went to Darlington. There ,
to -.surprise , ho cnrao across Jones ,
'who had escaped from 'his .captors.
Joues returned with Kondri'ck to Yarm ,
and wasoriabled to change his nttiro
bnd otherwise di guise himself , and then
the two sot about concocting.some
.to replenish their exchecquor
They rightly 'conjectured that the
officers-of' the law would take It for
granted that they.had made their way
south. London being .thd invariable
refuge for highwaymen in .thoso days.
They , felt themselvcsytherofpro. com
parntjvely. eafo. . . Riding through , the
by-ways in.th'o noighborhood'th'oy fixed
upon Mr. Loath am'a residence as 'a
likely place to.rob , and at once , begun
to lay their , plans. Having rocon-
n'oitorcd.tho place , they fixed upon , the
night of October. 191810. for the- , rob
bery. ' . ' '
-Leaving thoirhprsesin asccuro place ,
they entered the grounds about , mid
night , and approached , the . dwelling.
Jones staypd-under the shadow , of. the
trc&is and'.Kendrick .went toward the
house to find a s.uitdblo window by which
to enter. TO his surprise he found a
window Open , nnd , having.listene'd to be
sure that no one was around , ho Was in
the act of .climbing , in-when ho was
seized from behind and drawn back by a
"I have caught you-at length , you
scoundrel'said.Mr. ? 'Leatham , . for ho
was the personage who unexpectedly in
terrupted the burglar."Ifyou move or
offer any resistance .1 will shoot you
through the head. ' ' 1
Kondrick'had a/pistol In.his posses
sion , ' but he was dazed with wonder , and
ae he lay on hit ) back upon .the. ground ,
with his assailant' standing .over him
pointing a pistol at his head , he-judged
discretion was the bettor part'of valor.
io ho held his peace. Jones , however ,
iscovorlng the turn which things had
taken , fled as rapi'dly as possible.
Mr. Lontham disarmed Kondriokand
with a tight grip' upon , lite throat led
him to the entrance and into the dwell
ing. Then-conducting him to the study ,
he thrust him in and-confronted.'him. .
"You , then , " said ho , "are the scoun
drel who has seduced my daughter and
brought ruin upon us all. I don't know
you , sir , and I don't want to know you.
If I served you.right I would put a bul
let - you and throw your body
into a ditch. As it is , however-I shall
spare you'in order that my daughter's
disgrace may in a measure be abated
Who are you , sirl" '
Kendrick saw the situation in a mo
ment and determined to'profit by it , and
remembered that the stolen clothes
marked "Melton. "
were Assuming on
air of dejection and shame , ho said :
"My name is Charles Melton. I have
been staying in the neighborhood for
tome time. "
"How did you make the acquaintance
of my daughter41" !
"I would rather not say , sir : "
"Well , sir , though I knownothingof
your connectionsyou will have to marry
my daughter , so that her child may not
be born a bastard. "
Mr. Leatham was a magistrate , and
in these days magistrates usually had in
their houses what \vas known ns the
strong room , where offenders wore con
fined , if necessary. To such a room Mr.
Leatham conveyed Kendrick , or Mel
ton , as he will henceforth bo callcdand
there locked him up. Without a word
to his daughter , Mr. Leatham next day
went to Durham , nnd from the bishop's
surrogate procured a special license.
After Mr. Leatham'a discovery of his
daughter's condition she communicated
the fact to Topping and urged him to
make an admission , believing that
under the eircumstanccs her father
would consent to their marriage. Top
ping , hMrevor , Was greatly alarmed ,
and resigned his place , informing Mr.
Leatham that ho was going to accom
pany his uncle to Canada. Soon after
ward ho left the neighborhood , a fact of
which Miss Leatham was duly in
The dav after the capture of Melton ,
Mr. Leatham announced to hisdaughter
that he had in his custody the man who
had ruined her ; that his name , he.had
discovered , was Melton , and that he
supposed he belonged to a North York
shire family of that name , which was
flMoro than that , " he said , ' I have
procured a special license and the cur
ate is hero at this moment to marry
Maria's astonishment was naturally
very great , but she was afraid to saj
anything. She know that Topping hac
deserted her in her extremity and that
soon her disgrace , would be known to
the world. Her father's statement was
of course , a perfect mystery to her , but
she made up her mind in an instant to
do just what ho desired.
And to , meeting for the first time , the
woman , glad to coyer her shame and the
man glad to meet such a happy deliverance
anco from arrest and the gallows and to
fall upon a comparatively easy lot as ho
believed , the two were united in mar
After this Mr. Leatham took little
notice of either of them. They had their
own apartments , and attendants to wai
upon them , nnd Mr. Leatham made his
daughter a liberal allowance. How the
newly wedded couple settled it between
them may never bo known ; but they cer
tainly lived amicably together , and the
husband , who had considerable tack

nnd finally took entire management of
it. After the birth of the first child
three ethers followed. Mr. Lcathnra
had become reconciled to things as.they
were , and at lust his relations with his
son-in-law were almost cordial.
In the meantime nil but the eldest
child had died , and in 184G the mother
followed them. The eldest son was
then known as George Melton , and
thirty-live years of ago. He had been
married for ten years and had children.
Mr. Leatham died n month later , and
George Melton succeeded as a matter of
course to the estates. Mrs. Melton hav
ing a coursesy title iu them.
All these years Mr. Melton had con
ducted himself with marked propriety ,
and had won the respect and esteem of
the neighboring gentry. Nothing had
ever occurred to bring to light his early
career , nnd after the llrst year or BO no
ono manifested much curiosity as to his
Soon after Mr. Loathnm'sdcnth , how
ever , trouble camo. The gentleman's
nephew , Thomas Wilshiro , laid claim
to the property , alleging that the eldest
son of Mrs. Melton was born out of wed
lock , and could not therefore inherit.
On the trial of the action it was proved
that the child was born a week or more
after the marriage , but very unexpect
edly a fact came to light which proved
fatal to George Melton's titlo.
While Mr. Melton wa.s attending the
trial in London ho was identified on the
street by his former associate , Jones ,
though so many years had elapsed since
they parted on the night ol the at
tempted burglary. Melton endeavored
to deny the identity , hat Jones was per
sistent , and learning the nature of the
trial in progresss , and that it involved
the very property which was the scene
of tholr unlawful acts' 'on the night of
October 10,1810 , ho threatened Melton
with exposure unless ho paid him n sum
of money. Melton absolutely refused to
pay anything , and persisted in denying
that ho was Kondrick. Then Jones pro
duced the woman to whom Kendrick nad
been married in 1800 at Marylobono
church , London , and by whom he had
two children. This made his marriage
to Miss Leatham a nullity.
Other evidence of his identy rapidly
accumulated. It was shown that for two
years , just previous to his lawless deeds
