I wooed her lone as lovers do ,
With sigh and verso nnd billet ,
Told how my life would bo n blank ,

I told her how my throbbing heart
Wns aching lit to crack it ;
She tittered when I pressed her hand
And cried , "Oh , chccso the racketl"
I took her oft to out ice cream ,
I fed her tons of candy ,
And thought nt last I'd touched her heart
When ano said , "You're a dandy 1"

And warbled , "You're a daisy. "

A bright-faced , trimly built little
woman stood out in the cold all the way

crowded cars , neither seeming to mind
the biting blast that was blowing from
the East river , and both apparently
as happy as the conventional lovers on
the conventional garden gate.
Upon reaching Forty-seventh street
the little lady alighted and the lull
guardsman stooped ever the gate and
kissed her , saying softly : "Good-by ,
dear , I'll bo homo about 11 o'clock. "
After watching her out of sight , the
gentlemanly guardsman , by way of ex
planation to the smiling passengers ,
said briefly , but none the less impres
sively : "Wo were married last Satur

Romance nnd. Mystery.
Mrs. Lawrence Corcoran , of South
Orange , Now Jersey , is shortly going to
London to endeavor to establish her
claim to some 300,000 loft as the resid
uary estate of a Mrs. Blake. The cir
cumstances of the case arc very ro-
mautic. In the town of Ballpw , county
Longford lived Nellie Sheridan. Her
beauty captivated General Robert Dud
ley Blake , of the English army , and
member of a great and prominent fam
ily. Leaving the army ho took Nellie
to Scotland and married her. The
Blukes disowned him ; and thereupon
the General , wealthy in his own right ,
took his bride to America and estab
lished a largo millinery business in
Mnnsflold > Ohio. Many years ago ho
died while in England , leaving all his
possessions to his wifo.
Mrs. Blake was shunned by the gen-
oral's family , and some years ago she
died childless ut South Kensington. She
ulso died intestate. Her wealth would
therefore go to her nearest rela
tives. But the difficulty occurred us to
whom her relatives wore , for
although she lived at Bal-
low , it was by no means certain
Unit she was born thoro. The regis
tration books all ever the United King
dom have boon searched in vain for any
record of her birth , while inquiries on
u largo sculo have also been made in
foreign parts. Some of her acquain
tances allcgo that she was born at sea ,
but her maiden name of Sheridan scorns
to indicate that she was of Irish birth.
It wus only about half a century ago
thut the compulsory registration law
cunio into operation , and this may ac
count for the apparent non-registration.
Mrs. Lawrence Corcoran , however ,
alleges thut she was u first cousin of
Mrs. Bluko , and that she can prove it.
She says her maiden name was Feenoy ,
and that her native place was Adgo'r-
ton , County Longford. Two years ago
she nnd her husband wore informed
that she was heiress to n large sum.

A Novel Ceremony.
Some years ago , says the Chicago
Tribune , when free-loyo notions were
running around loose in Now England ,
a Boston man and woman who had Im
bibed of those doctrines until they af
fected to despise all the common con
ventionalities of life carne to the con
clusion that they would live together
without going through the ceremony of
marriage. Th&y had both moved in
good society and made no secret of their
intention. In fact , they announced itto
every one they met. Staid old Boston's
aristocracy wag shaken to the depths. .
. . The man was prevailed upon to
give a dinner party , to which wore in
vited prominent society people , includ
ing the governor of the state. When
dessert was put upon the table the talk
became general , and soon turned
upon the perverse couple. The
man and woman answered
every question put to them with the
most perfect equanimity. Finally the
governor took n hand in the conversa
tion. After asking a few questionsnnd
commenting on1 the answers thereto , in
a calm , judicial manner lie turned to
the man and asked : "Do you , Mr. ,
intend to love and cherish this woman
as your wife , for good or evil , for better
"Yes , sir , " answered the man very
"And do you , madame , intend to obey
this man as your husband , for better or
worse , for good or ovilV"
"I do , sir , " answered the woman po
"Then by the power vested in mo as
governor of this commonwealth I declare
you to bo man and wifo. "
And thus the plans of the couple wore
frustrated , for which they afterward
declared they were heartily thankful.
They are now old and respected resi
dents of Chicago.
A Gold Huntcr'fl Romance.
A Chicago ( III. ) Dispatch to the St.
Louis Globe says : Michael Sullivan
left his homo in Ore Hill , Conn. , about
four years ago to seek his fortune in
California. Ho loft behind a wife and
one childj a daughter ton years of ago.
Mr. Sullivan made money rapidly in
the golden state and sent frequent re
mittances to his homo. About two
weeks after leaving homo ho sent his
wife $500 and told her to come to him.
She went to California with a male rol-
utivo named Kelloy. When she arrived
in San Francisco no husband was ut the
station to welcome her. She wont to
the address given her by Mr. Sullivan
nnd learned that ho had suddenly loft
two weeks before and nothing has boon
hoard from him since. Mrs. Sullivan
assisted by Mr. Kelly , instituted a thor
ough search for the missing husband ,
and advertised liberally , .but no tidings
of the lost ono came. Finally , after
months of vain search Mrs. Sullivan de
termined to return homo. She pur
chased a ticket to Chicago and on the
train between this city and Omaha was
robbed of all her money , save a small
amount of chango. Arrived here , she
secured shelter after many privations ,
and since then has worked very hard to
maintain herself and child.
Nothing has boon heard of her hus
band until yesterday morning when she
received u call from a detective who
questioned her , closely. Ho loft the
house , but shortly afterward returned
with a swarthy , boarded man , and hus
band , wife and child wore again re
united. It appears that immediately
after writing his wife to join him , Mr.
Sullivan determined to make a trip to
Arizona and 'inspect some mining
property in which ho wns interested ,
intending to return to San Francisco in
time to moot his wifo. At Chandlas

few days afterward brain fever sot in.
Ho was confined to his bed three
months. When ho became convalscont
ho found his mine had developed wealth
and that ho was. a rich man. As soon as
ho was ublo ho returned to San Fran
cisco only to find that his wife had been
there , but had not boon seen for several
weeks. From that day until yesterday
a conbtant search lias boon kept up for
the missing ones. Mr. and Mra. Sulli

A Rninnntlu Marriage.
The Atlanta ( Ga ) Constitution of a
recent issue says : A romantic niurriugo
occurred hero at the Woman's Christian
homo. The bride was Belle Roraoy , a
white woman who was sent to the peni

Mrs. Harper , who has kept a kindly

The Gaffnoy City ( S. C. ) correspon
dent of the Chicago Times says : This
town ftnd surrounding country have
boon greatly excited over since the
middle of February last over the marriage
riago of Miss Florence Little , who was
the hello of all the young ladies , and
was without a rival in the beauty of her
features and the sploudor of her magni
ficent form , which is fit for an artist's
Miss Florence was a great flirt , and
could not resist a little pastime in this
way with any lit specimen of the sterner
sex. Mr. Augustus Mintz was her devoted -
voted slave. The course of true love
was smooth until Dr. D. Atkinson , of
Chtstor , S. C. , came upon the scene and
took in the regular features and Juno-
like form of the unrivaled belle of
Gaffnoy City. At once ho laid his heart
and hand and resultant fees of Escula-
pius at her foot , and forwith they be
came engaged. This was in November
last , and the happy event was post
poned from time to time until the 1st of
February last. Just before this day , a
friend of Miss Little telegraphed Atkin
son that Miss Little was very ill and
confined to her bed , end that the marriage
riago would have to bo postponed.
The doctor became suspicious and
came to this place , and when ho got
hero ho found his affianced so well and
hearty that she and her other charmer ,
to-wit , Augustus Mintz , wore out in the
country driving over hill and down dale
behind a spanking team of prancing
steeds. This was enough for Atkinson.
Ho took the next train for Chester , con
sidering the engagement at an end. In
a day or two ho received a letter from
Miss Little saying that he had treated
her shamefully , and if ho had waited
until she returned from tbo ride she
would have complied with her part of
the agreement. Atkinson paid no at
tention to the letter , and very soon ho
received other letters from the imme
diate family of Miss Little , saying that
Miss Florence was greatly hurt at being
jilted by the doctor , and to como and
see her at onco.
Atkinson answered that ho had not
quite lost his self-respect and would not
see hor. However , self-respect or no
self-respect , ho did go , and as soon as ho
came within personal contact of the
siren ho succumbed to her wiles and
fascinations , and they became engaged
again , and on the 12th of February last
they wore married and loft on the train
for Columbia and Charleston on the
Of course , the marriage of our hello
created a great stir and was heralded
far and wide so far and wide that Mr.
Augufetus Mintz heard it. Thereupon
Mr. Mint ? wont out in the country , and
brought Rev. Mr. Carter to this place ,
and both made the statement that on
the 1st day of February lastwhon Mintz
and Miss Little were out riding , they
had been married by Rov. Mr. Carter ,
and that the marriage was to have been
kept a profound secret for two years ,
until Mintz bccamfl of ago.
This startling fact was published in
the newspapers , and while the doctor
and bride wore regaling themselves at
breakfast at the Charleston hotel the
newspaper containing the statement of
Mintz was brought in. The bridegroom
was quick in discovering that Mintz
laid claim to his wife , The paper was
passed to Miss Little , and she bitterly
denied that she had married Mintzund
said it wns a jealous ho ho had told on
her because she would not marry him.
Atkinson believed this statement , and
was further confirmed In it when Miss
Little loft him , saying that she could
not consent to live longer with him
until the story of Mintz had been
proven to bo false. Dr. Atkinson then
wont to work to find out the truth of
the double marriage. Ho spent u good
deal of money and up to a week ago had
not been able to got any evidence to
corroborate his wife or to prove the
denial to bo untrue ,
Ho was settling down to the belief
that Mint ? and Carter were liars , when
all ut once Miss Ltttlo confessed to the
doctor that she had really been mar
ried to Mintz on the day they were out
riding. Atkinson has published a card
giving these facts , and "earnestly
hopes that a generous public and a kind
providence will deal lightly with the
unfortunate . ' '
poor , lady.
Mrs. Mintznssho must now bo known ,
haa been guilty of bigamy , and it is
not known whether she will bo prose
cuted or not. Why she married Atkin
son in not explained. In this state no
lie-on so is required , and it may bo she
thought Mintz and Carter would keep
silent and the former murrlago would
never bo known. Mintz lias brought
suit to have the marringo annulled as
to himself , and will put Atkinson on
the stand to prove his casu. So it ap
pears that the double marriage , instead
of providing one woman with two hus
bands , has deprived Miss Florence Lit
tle of a husband , und may aubjuct her
to tv criminal prosecution.
