The Now York Tirr.cs of a recent date printed the followingWllUoslmrro , Pa. , uiepsitch : Tlila town htis boon the tceno of the most novel elopement on record. It was a business elopement from the Btart. Chnrlps Scclev , a well to do livery stable keeper of Albany , N. V. , came to thlH city whore he mot and was introduced to .Miss Sally Boyle , a vdry pretty girl , iipeil only Seventeen years. Seclcy was love struck at first night and proposed marriage , but the girl'n parents who arc respectable nnd tolbriibly well to do people , refused to hear of it as the girl was too young. Bceloy returned to Albany much cast down in npirits. On Thursday hist ho made a second visit here and in the evening ho and Miss Boyle wont out fern n walk. This was the last scon of them. They eloped , took a train for Philadel phia , whore no lieeiibo is required and Ucro united. The bride telegraphed to her parents asking their forgiveness. BoforeconBonting to elope Miss Boyle made sure that Sooloy did not intend to deceive her later on , t > o she compelled him to assign over his property in Al bany to her. Scoloy readily did this , as he was willing to do anything to get the bride. _ A Peculiar Bridal Trip. One day recently , at Hartford , says the Now York Sun , a charcoal cart drawn by a pair of meek-eyed oxen drove up to a clergyman's residence in this town , and the occupants alighted nnd marched up to the front door. The man was dressed in his working clothes and his face wns covered with the dust of the coal which ho had been peddling all day. The woman wore the fashions of I860 , and evidently was pinked out in the linest she could alTord. They wore ushered into the minister's study and informed him they had como to got married. On inquiring for the license it w.as found that this important docu ment had been forgotten , and the groom nnd his lady love proceeded to the town clerk's oflleo to got it. The bride was asked her ago , and after a bories of giggles responded that she did not know. "Oh , toll him you are forty , " suggested the groom. "You know you are that. " And forty was recorded. Holding the document in his grimy hand , the groom , followed by the bride , started for the clergyman's where they werosoon married. Returning to their cart after the ceremony the wife made two or three unsuccessful attempts to climb in over the front wheel. She had to give it up , and her huhband load her around to the rear of tiio cart , where ho tenderly boosted her in , and helped her to a seat by his side , her foot swinging in the air. They started southward , apparently as happy as though they were beginning their bridal trip in a palace car. A Slloiit A pleasant-looking young man entered " tered Justice Lane's olliro in "Jjursoy City the other day , says the Now York Bun , nnd , taking from his pocket a pad. wrote : "Can you give mo a marriage li cense'1" ; "Can you speak ? " wrote the judgo. "No , " wrote the visitor. "Do you want to bo married ? " "I do , you bet , " wrote the young man , whoso face a moment afterward brightened wonderfully when he read : "No license is required hero. I'U marry you now. " Ho wrote in reply : "All right. I'll bo buck at 4 o'clock with my girl , " and loft the otllco. It was exactly o'clock when the young man returned with a pretty young woman. Tie took his pad and pencil from his pocket and wrote : "Iluro.ho id. " The justice acknowledgou the intro duction with a bow > and began to talk to her. She stopped him by producing a pad similar to nor lover s , She also was a deaf mute. The young man de scribed himself on paper UB 1 Ionium V. Brown , 65U West Kifty-bi.xth Htreot , this city , twenty-four years Jd. She wrote that she was Alice Forbes , of the same - place. The justice then told them to Etand and wrolo the marringo service , while they responded on their pads. Wlion it was over the justice wrote : "I pronounce you man and wife. " The couple road it , looked at each other and in a moment , wore clasped in each other's nrms. The bride wrote .Hint her husband had furnihhod roouw Fifty-fifth htrcot , mid they wore going to hoiiFokeoping at oneo. She came from Connecticut , slut wrote , und ho from JMiibtachuf-etttf. They had lived at the eiimo place for a long ttmo , and had been in love with each other over since they first mot. "What is it worth ? " wrote the groom. Justice Liino blushed and wrote : "Whatever you think it is worth to you. " The groom dropped a fee on the ta ble and Blurted with his wife for their homo. Before they wont out the ju&tlro wrote : "What Ib your occupation ? " and the reply was ; "None , 1 live on my income. " _ _ _ _ _ A Hawaiian Jtoniiutco. The recent revolution at Honolulu has brought to light a bit of personal history that hits a touch ot ronuim'o in it , says the Now York Mail and Ex press. Some time in the early ViOa , an Amer ican mcclmiiiu named Wile-ox drifted to the islands , whore he married n native woman of the lower order. A son was the result of the union. Young Wil- cox's early lifo was spout in a half- gavago atmoephoro , but before ho was thirty yean * old he was gent to the native tivo fogUhituro at Honolulu. Here ho became the uhampion of the king. Biguor Morons , an Italian adventurer , who had won the favor ot Kalpkaua , Euggobtr.d that ho bhoulu send some of the nntlvo vouugmon to Europe to ob tain a military and naval education , and Wilcox wns placed in the military school " ut Milan. . Wilcox graduated. nnd" was appointed to a lieutenancy in the Italian cavalry. Kalakaua con ceived the idea that it would be a bril liant stroke to appoint UB u.iui tcr plenipotentiary to the court of St. James a native-born Hawaiian , nnd promised to pond Wilcox there as such representative. About this tjino Wilcox met _ , njyco of the Prince Colona. who married Miss Mackoy , daughter of Mackoyof Nevada , and they were married. A few months after the marriage , and while the lieu tenant was waiting for his credentials to the English court , the revolution of last summer broke out , nnd the king was powerless to carry out his plan of sending a minister to St. James. The now government which came into power at once , cut off the allowance that had been granted the lieutenant nnd ordered him-homo on the ground that ho wns a useless and extravagant apucndago abroad. Ho returned with his wife to Honolulu during the present winter , hut his ensiles by Lake Como were gone. In his extremity ho meditated a revolu tion by the natives , but ho was quickly discovered ami given tounderbtnnd that another attempt of the kind would result in his hanging. Early this year Mrs. Wilcox became a mother and the whites on the inland raised a purse for the un fortunates and have soul thorn back to Italy where Wilcox will probably enter the army again. lie llepentoil Finally. Last week Pio.to Uucklln , nged seven teen , and Prlscllla .TclTrlcs , a buxom gypsy lass of twenty-three , cloned at XancHvillo , O. When Prisollla's father found out the condition of ntTairs ho was very angry , and taking a new and gaudily-painted wagon , which ho had purchased for his daughter a few days ago at a cost of $275 , ho made a bon-llro of it , adding to the Hamcsall her effects. Then ho bold the running gear of the wagon for $10. Priseilla and her lover wore married all the same , and when the repentant old man was informed of the fact ho came to the city , hunted the pair up and induced thorn to go back to camp with him by promising to buy them a now wagon bettor than the first. A Hot Trot for Iiove's Sake. A Louisville dispatch to the St. Louis Post says : A buggy in which wore C. W. Houclc , Miss Fanuio Houck and Miss Annie Stansbcrry was observed to ' drive rapidly into thc'city and stop at the Farmer's Homo. The horses wore covered with foam , while the vehicle and its occupants wcro completely be spattered with the red mud of the country roads. Looking nervously around the two alighted and entered the hotel , and the panting steeds were led to the stables. Mr. Houck hurriedly explained that he and his sister wcro from High Grove in Nelson county , and that Miss Stans- berry was from Cox's Crook , in the same neighborhood. Ho and Miss Stans- berry desired to bo married , and very quickly , too ; that they had run away from her opposing parents , leaving the Stunsborry mansion , thirty-three miles from the city , last night at 10 o'clock. They had boon discovered by the old folks nnd the father was in hot pursuit. It had beou a race all the way. They had caught a glimpse of the old man several times as ho would rise over the brow of a hill which they had passed , but just before reaching the city limits they made extra speed and eluded their pursuers. Mr. Mi'Cormick , the night clerk , know the elopers personally. Ho mounted a fresh horse and galloped down town to secure the license and a magistrate. A deputy clerk was sum moned from his bed and while ho filled out the marriage license McCormiclc found Magistrate McCann , a jolly state senator , who is the great matrimonial knot-tier of Louisville , and in five min- utus ho was up and droscod. In order to lose no time ho mounted the same horse with McCormlek and in this man ner they returned to the hotel , lirst stoppingTat they clerk's ollicc to got the license. Too few early risers at the hostlcry'woro summoned to the parlor by Mr. Do wit , the proprietor , and in his style Senator McCann placed two loving hearts beyond the reach of pa ternal interference and pronounced them husband and wifo. The only objection on thq part of the bride's parents scorned to be that she is a Catholic while the groom is a Protest ant. The father arrived two hours later and baid if they would bo married by a priest all would forgotten. They complied , and the party will return home to-morrow. Ho and She. Outlwj. "if I were king , " ho said , "And you were just n lowly beggar maid , With my strong hand I'd lift you to my hide And crown you queen ; nnd In the great king's brideMen Men would not know , Or would forget the beggar nmid. " "If I were queen , " she said , "And you a e.u oless , wandering minstrel , strayed To my fair court ; I'd ' set you on the throne ; And helug thoie , trie greatest king o'er known , I would kneel down And servo you as j our maid. " A Tflxni ; Jlnir.ntiRi' . Twelve miles west of Bonham ( Tox. ) save a dispatch to the Olobo-Domocrat , at the junction of the ToxaiPacillo and Minsouri Pacilic % railways , 19 situated the little village of Bolls. This town is , no doubt the dullest , sleepiest hamlet in all North Texas , and the event about to bo related has furnished the inhabi tants of that place a theme for discus sion for many weeks to como. A few weeks ago a haiultjomo young lady of Bolls married a conductor on the Texas Pacifio railway named Bailoy. The married lifo of the conductor und his bride was a happy one for the brief period it lasted , which was only a few months. Mr. Bailey dying. A bright- eyed little girl was the fruit of the union. A few months ago Mrs. Bailey wont to Tenhcbseo , where she was born and raibcd to visit old-time friends and rela tives. While there she mot a young doctor who was a sweetheart of her chUdhc'bl days. They renewed their pledges of love and an engagement fol lowed. Mrs. Bailey having com pleted her visit , returned to Boll , and for some time kept up a correspondence with her doc tor lover. Finally the lovo-froightcd opiblles from * the Tonncfsoo M , IX ceased to make their regular appear ance at the Bells postolllco , and the pretty little widow , thinking him untrue - true , began to bestow her smiles on other suitors. A woll-to-do young farmer proved 'himself a successful woonr , and after a short contest won her hand. They were married and three weeks passed away. A few days ago she viritcd her mother , and while there her lover from Tennessee visited the house and asked to sco hor. The request was at lirst refused , but finally the lady consented to too ? him. A few moments of explanations suHlcod to caiico the old love to break forthwith followed vigor. They canvasicd the situation thoroughly , and then went to gether to the houto ; of her newly ac quired husband , when sho. frankly con- fi'Sbed that who tljd not love htm and married only to secure a homo. She loved her old sweetheart , and could not live happily with any other , The hubband , though loving her with all the vigor of his noul , roulUml the situa tion , and resolved to give her up. fiho wont to the Hnb'.nsou hotel , and her lever loft for Toxarkana. Last Friday the farmer husband accompanied his wife , und yet uo hiu wife , to the depot , and , kissing her good-by with tears In his eyes , saw her take the train to join her lovor. Altogether it was one of the strangest atTairs thai hns over oc curred in this part of\Jio \ state. CONNUnJAlilTIRS. A Georgia man has celebrated , his golden wedding with his scpond wifo. In marriage , one nnd one make ono ; in di vorce , one from ono leaves two. A Boston girl attended n cooking school nnd became so lufutuated with the culinary art tliat she married a supe. Ella Wheeler Wilcox objects to the term "weaker sex , " us applied to women. A great many married men agree with her. Puck : Actresses , as a class , marry to di vorce nnd divorce to marry. As a paradox Is a proposition seemingly absurd , this Is n paradox. A woman at Urldgcport , Conn. , has n good Joke on her hushand.

"Why Is It that the groom always scorns frightened at a wedding1' ! ' remarked a young woman. "Humph ! tllo's got a right to be , " was the rejoinder of un old married man within hearing. Near Muscntlne , In. , a young man , who be lieves In leap-year privileges to the full , is availing himself of them to sue for breach of promise the young woman who has played havoc with his young affections. A needy nobleman had married a wealthy dame whoso tlguro chiefly resembled u thir- t.V-sIx-gallon barrel.

A day or two since n couple from Lykens procured a marriage license.

A law has been passed in Watdeck , Ger many , forbidding the granting of a marriage license to a person addicted to the liquor habit.

( CUT THIS OUT AND POST IN YOUR WINDOW. ) A JEWELER'S ROMANCE. There has como to light at Leaven- worth , Kan. , snys the Jewelers' Ko- view , a case which ini&ht furnish an excellent theme for the iidyolist. Thir teen years ago , Lyman J. Ellsicr kept a small jeweler's repairing shop in Kansas City. Ellsler'n bubincbs prospered - pored as the city grow , and on the day ho received a consignment of1.500 worth of diamonds ho huilt rustics in Spain from the increased pVofits which must henceforth attend his business. His stock of goods ho nightly locked in a small safe , the combination of which was known to himself and his young clerk only. With , perhaps , a slight bit of formality , pardonable in a man who hnd that day received a heavier con signment than any other merchant in town , ho locked his safe that night , and bidding his clerk good night , went Koine to a happy wife and joyous daughter , who soon expected to become the bride of Ellslors's young as sistant in business. When Ellslor ar rived at his place of business next morn ing , contrary to the general order of things , the store was locked. The show cases had not been filled for the day's business. Opening the door , Ellhlcr waited for the clerk , who soon arrived , Hushed when giving as an excuse for his tardiness that ho had overslept him self. The young man busied himself with putting the store in order , while Ellsk-r turned the combination of the safe , preparatory to beginning business for the day. Suddenly Ellslor gasped , foil backward , and tittering the one word "Gone ! " fell into a dcud stupor. The precious gems received the day before - fore , and the chamois hag which con tained them , were not in the safe. The combination being found untampored with and its workings being known butte to himself mid his clerk , the latter was accused of the robberywhich charge ho stoutly denied. Surely burglars wcro not the nocturnal visitors , else the array of gold and silverware would alho have dibappearod. The clerk was placed under arrest , but as no dollnito testimony could bo brought to bear against him fto was ro'ciihud. Even after her father's heavy loss , and when circum stances pointed to her lever as the guilty person , Ellblcr's daughter , Emily would not believe him guilty , nnd inside - side of two years , during which time the young clerk hud boon employed in St. Louis , thov were married , removing lo St. Piiul , Minn. A yoarpahsed , and with its departure came a baby boy. Much against his own wishog , but at the urgent request of his wife. The husband sent news of the happy event to Ellsicr and his wifo. The answer was brief but tourlblo : "You have given birth to the t-on of a tliiof , " was all it said , but it was enough to break the young mother's heart , und she died in the course of n week. Ellslor's business rapidly dropped olT , and financial ditlicultics following , ho was enabled to sell out for enough money to purchase several acres on the edge of this city and be came ono of tlio man } * garden era who in the early morning supply the market with vegetables and' ' fruits. For nine years ho has been en gaged in this busmobB , during which time ho and his wife ihave eon bluntly mourned the unhappy priding of'thoir daughter. The recentheavy rains and bad roads have often prqvonted the old man from making his accustomed trips to the city market , and upon ono of these occasions the famjly clock having become out of order , lie dotermtned to give a few hours to righting it. In eomo way the pendulum , \yas accidcntly broken during the job , and the old clockmaker was about tp gjvetho job up for the time being when ho bethought himself of what might prove to bo a substitute , which had hung motionless Blnco the day ho had crossed the ocean and landed , carrying in his arms the big family clock which had timed the hours of his boyhood days in Germany. The family heirloom had hung on the wall of his store in his more prosperous - porous davs , but it was always silent among the many ticking watches nnd clocks. Wlien Ellslor , with the nervousness which sometimes cotnns in old ago , quickened by the bight of an article which brought back to memory father and mother , eibtor and brother , ouoned the old timepiece , ho certainly haU no thought of what ho would linu within. Closely ensconced behind the pendulum was u small chamois tack , covered with dust , but its coutents as brilliant as the day , twelve yours before , when they had como into Jowclor Klls- ler's possession. The ohl man's feel ings ut thu time of the discovery , are , of eourse , impossible to dcbcribe. Tears coin-feed down his cheeks , und when his wife found him with bowed head , hold ing the lost treasure in his arms , diamonds mends fulling to the floor with each heave of his breast , she , in some unac countable manner , surmised at u glance what had taken place , nnd fell to the Hoer fainting , calling upon her dead daughter for forgiveness. In conversation with a correspondent Ellsler s-aid : "At lirst it seemed too much like a dream to believe and at least u do/en times a day I would run the diamonds through my fingers in order to convince myself that it was all ' real. After awhile'it all came back tome mo so plain. Before , locking up that evening , I thought it would be bettor to secure the diamonds in some out of the way place , thin Icing that should the safe bo blown open during the night 1 would lose nearly niy all , so just before closing I secreted them in the old clock. Being tired I slept heavily ; the next morning my surprise1 ft.t not finding them in the safe where T nightly depos ited all my goods must have chased away all recollection of where I had put them the night previous , and in the ex citement following my mind was turned. My wife and I are growing old. Wo have a small competence which onr gar den brings us. Wo intend spending our newly acquired wealth and "more in for . How searching our son-in-law. 'happy we would bo' ' and tear after tear dropped from the dimmed eyes , "if wo know if our grandchildren were alive and if wo could see them before wo die. " The old man has disposed of his stand on the public market , and has. in nil probability begun the search for his old clerk , whoso name is Francis Tc- land , and whose parents formerly lived in Somorvillc , Mass. 8INGUIUIITIES.
