Now York Times : A novel case that
has attracted borne attention in the vi
cinity of Boston during the past few
days is a suit brought by Mrs. M.yra
Bcals , of Boston , against Dr. Augustin
Thompson , of Lowell , for $50,001) ) dam
ages for having alienated the affections
of her husband , James II. Bcals. It
ended in the superior court to-day in a
verdict for the plaint ! u"of $ .iOOU. ( ) The
trial of the case attracted large numbers
of the curious.
Mrs. Myrti Beals is a young and dash
ing woman , twenty-six years old. Dr.
Thompson is the originator and propri
etor of a patent medicine , the stile of
which , ho testified in court , brought
him in an income of 8100,0 ( ) ( ) n year.
Mrs. Bonls , when single , had some his
trionic talent , or thought she had , and
Dr. Thompson provided the moans for
her education prior to her going on the
stage as the star in a play of his own
writing. About the tnno the education
was perfected the young lady took it
into her head to marry .lames Bcals , a
fussy old man forty years her senior ,
lie had \\cullh and owned the building
occupied by the Boston Post. Dr.
Thompson was very angry with
Mrs. Beats , and soon after the
wedding began writing letters to
Mr. Boals about the lady he had taken
to wife. The result was. estrangement
before the customary time allowed for
the honeymoon had passed , followed by
a suit for divorce which wab granted ,
the divorced wife getting $10,001) ) from
her hubhand.
Mrs. Coals immediately brought suit
against Dr. Thompson for alienating
the affections of her husband , and as a
result the young woman finds herself
pretty well off in this world's goods.
The testimony presented consisted
mainly of thq letters written to Mrs.
Deals , and a good many epistles of a
racy character that parsed between the
parties to the suit.
A Hoolc on Miu'rinRfl nnd Divorce.
Clone-Democrat : Two years ago ,
says a dispatch from Washington , con- authorised the department of
labor to collect statistics of divorce in
the United States , and the work then
undertaken is so nearly completed that
Commissioner Wright hopes to lay Ills
report before con gross early in January.
The "field work" has been finished and
the liguros are now being tubulated.
Commissioner Wright's agents have
obtained the figure ? from every court in
the United States having divorce lurib-
dictlon , of which there are about 12,700 ,
and the , period of investigation extends
back twenty years , from 18(5(1 ( ( to 188(1. (
'Everything relating to the subject will
bo given wherever it bus been possible
to obtain information from the court
records , and in every case the agents
not only examined the dockets , but the
original bills filed. The report of
each case will give the ages of the
persons concerned , the cause for
which divorce was granted , whether
the wife or husband obtained the de-
dree , the number of children , the place
of marriage and the migration of the
couple since thenj so as to show whether
the change of residence was bona lido
or merely for the purpose of obtaining
a divorce ; the length of time the mar
riage lasted , and any other facts that
might tend to throw any light on the
subject. Another portion of the work
will give the number of marriages , as
far as the records show , by counties in
the United States for the same period ,
so that the ratio of marriages to di
vorces can be seen. A synopsis of the
divorce laws of every state will also find
a place , and the work will conclude
with statistics of divorces in the princi
pal countries of Europe. The .subject
of divorce has never boon so thoroughly
investigated before. The Italian gov
ernment took up the inquirv several
years ago , but it was limited in its
range. The cost of the investigation ,
it is estimated , has not been loss than

Married in Transit.
Paris intelligence : Elder George E.
Luckoy , of Purib , Ky , performed rather
a novel marriage ceremony recently at
the Paris depot. Ho had procured
marriage lieotibo , as directed by tele
gram a few hours previous to the arri
val of the evening passenger train , and
going to the depot ho awaited the com
ing of the train , when he entered the
coach nnd , during the time consumed
in making an exchange of engines , ho
commanded Mr. II. A. Boden , the pop
ular druggist of Springvillo , and MibS
Laura Cnldwoll , a beau til ul young lady
from Fulton , Kentucky , to stand up in
the presence of quite a number of pas
sengers , and in his usual happy style he
joined them in holy wedlock , and bid
ding them a hasty adieu they went on
their way rejoicing. Wo did not learn
what occasioned this novel procedure ,
whether tliey wore tleoing from pater
nal cares or simply preferred the
romantic feature.
A llonmntlo Incident.
St. Louis Republic : A case which at
tracted a great deal of attention was
tried in the district court in this city
this forenoon , concluding early in the
afternoon , and containing features of
sadnobs and romance. Several months
ago James McCowan , a railroad man ,
while , apparently , in a spasm of rage ,
attempted to kill his young wife at the
Blanchard hotelwhore they were board
ing , by cutting her throat with a knife.
Ho was lodged in jail , and in a short
time his wife obtained a divorce. lie
was arraigned in the court this morning
to have his case investigated , and while
he wao on trial , his wife was married to
another man , and a few moments after
her marriage appeared on the witness
stand , attired in her bridal costume , to
testify ngaist her former husband , who
had attempted to take her life. Mc
Cowan was remanded to prison to wait
dual trial on charge of insanity , which
will sot aside the former charge of as

fI'rotty Ilomunoe.
Globe Democrat : Hero is a pretty lit
tle every day romance , warming to the
cockles of the most cynical heart , Mr.
Huynmn , a big blonde real estate man
of Cincinnati , loved MiHg Jaynos , u
slim , fair girl of San Francisco , with
the full consent ot her wealthy father ,
us the two men had been friends for
years. 'I'lio ' betrothed pair were intent
on marriage , and as they had health ,
money und the paternal blowing , the
course of true love ought to have run
on into that haven without semblance
of a ripple , but the fact was that the
bridegroom could not find time for the
far-western journey and the bride had
no friend or brother to bring her east.
So after much consultation and many
loving letters , " she took her courage in
both hands , boarded the train and came
half way , or rather more , to meet her
true love , and at the Lacledo hotel , in
St. Louis , Jast week , the two wore made
one , and let us dovoutedly hope , will
"live happy ever after. "
A Union Wcddln ? .
Philadelphia Times : Weddings to
attract more than passing interest these
days must either excel in splendor or
have something rare and uncommon.
Much out of the stereotyped style was
the interesting wedding of Miss Lucy
Bramlotto Patterson of Philadelphia
and J. Lindsay Patterson , which took
place at Ru&sollvillo , Tonn. , the birth
place of the bride's ' maternal grand
mother and the homo of her aunt , at
whoso place , Ilayslope , the reception
took place. Although bearing the same
name , the wedded couple bore to each
other not the slightest relationship ,
yet the paternal grandfather of each
was a General Patterson. They were
married in a Presbyterian church ac
cording to the Episcopal ritual by a
Baptist clergyman. Every dointy touch
in the decoration of the church was
done by relatives of the bride. The
wedding feast , a feast such as only a
southern mansion could hot forth was
composed of dishes prepared for the oc
casion by relatives and friends , one vie-
ing with another in contributing to the
banquet of niceties. The wedding cake ,
an elegant specimen of decorative
pastry in lillips nnd orange blossoms
was the artistic handiwork of a lady
from Alabama. The wedding march
was played by an intimate friend from
Now Orleans. Old family servants in
the familj since slave days , and their
descendants , served at the tables. One
of thcbo , "Aunt Clarissa , " had been the
" " of the bride's
"mammy" nurse mother.
Kinged about the church and numb
ering l undreds , were the animals nnd
vehicles in which people had come
often long distances. Those varied
from the farm mule , whose solo panoply
was a blind bridle , to the stylish lun-
duus with their perfectly appointed
teams. Near the entrance all the old
family servants were tse-ited. The
center of the church was occupied
mainly by the largo family extensions
Tonnesscans from the Noliichucky ,
French Broad and Holbton , whom Miss
Murfreo would have liked to moot. On
either side , in strange contrast , were
the city-bred guests , including those
from Philadelphia and the east , perfect
in toilet and manner. It was a remark
able gathering.
After the customary ushers came six
little girls , picturesquely dressed , and
carrying baskets of ilowers. Then came
the maid of honor , a Jeiu'itiful girl of
sixteen , and finally the bride , leaning
upon her father's arm , , her dress of
creamy white duchess utin mudo with
a high coinage nnd front drapery of
crepe embroidered in pearls , und the
whole enveloped by a misty veil of tulle.
The reception was charming. One of
the guests described it as "a social pot
pourri , " in which north , south , east
and wcbt had its representatives. Every
body was very warm and genial , and a
thorough , hearty southern hospitality
pervaded the beono. After biipper the
dining room was Cleared for dancing ,
nnd the guests , old us well as young ,
danced vigorously to such tunes as
"Mississippi Sawyer" und lNutches
Under the Hill. "
A Veritable Feminine Hoodoo.
A few gossips of the southern end of
Die city are jubt now dlseubtiiig the
strange romance of a young woman who
has for something over a year been a
resident among them. Tlio story was
told to a Globe-Democrat reporter by a
clergyman of the Episcopal church , who
has boon a sufferer from the lady's
strange fate. The lady in question is
but a visitor to America , whence she
came to try and shako oil the spell of
which she firmly believes she is the
victim. A few years previous to her
leaving "Historic Caledonia , " she re
turned from the patrimonial estates of
the family , nine and one-half miles
from the Holyrood palace , in Edinburg
to Aberdeen. By the death of her
father , since her arrival in this coun
try , she has become the heiress to a
largo estate. She is refined , graceful
and handsome , but the fatality attach
ing to her makes her life an unhappy
When but seventeen years old she
became strongly attached to n nephew
of the bishop of Carlyle. One day ,
while riding across the heath in his
company , she had a presentiment that
ho would propose that night , and she
accepted. She saw him , in a momen
tary vision , lying , pale and cold , by the
roadside. Bewildered , she involuntar
ily stopped her horse , and in another
moment fell in a swoon. Ho bore her
to a cottager's near by , and on her re
covery the bashful young man's love
had b'oon so intensified by anxiety that ,
in a moment of mutual tenderness ; they
were betrothed. After escorting her
homo ho had to pass the sumo spot to
return to his domicile. The next morn
ing they found him dead near where
she had fallen. His horse had evi
dently thrown him , and ho had boon
killed by the consequent injury to his
The lady recovered , and eighteen
months afterward she was betrothed to
an English naval officer who was sud
denly ordered to the West Indies to join
II. M. S. schoolship Eurydice. The
next spring , on the return of the ship
homo , she was wrecked and all on board
but two were lost. The young lover
was not one of the saved.
Time healed the lady's thrice wounded
heart , and her affections were won by
an English army ollicer , who was
drowned shortly after the betrothal.
The night ho was drowned she was at
tending a ball , and , according to her
statement , was boixod with a sudden at
tack of dizziness and fainted. On re
covering , she said she had been , in a
vision , the ball-room suddenly trans
formed into a submarine cavern , con
taining nothing but the corpse of her
accepted lieutenant. She could never
bo induced to dance again.
It took a good deal of persuasion to in
duce her to become a fiancee again. But
the persistence of an American sea cap
tain conquered her reluctance , and she
accepted him. Ho returned to Phila
delphia with his bhlp for the purpose of
putting his affairs in bhapo for the wed
ding. While his ship was at anchor off
the Delaware breakwater ho was also
drowned. The bride-elect came to the
Quaker City afterwards , and , having
relatives in Carondolet , resolved to
make a long visit to them.
The clergyman who furnished the
/acts / above related mot nnd loved the
lady , and she apparently reciprocated ,
but when ho proposed she replied by
tolling him her htory , und all his elo
quence failed to change her resolution
never to marry. His attentions to her
hud been a matter of society gossip , so
that there was something of a fconsation
when there appeared in the booioty
columns of the , Globe-Democrat an
item stating she hud gone to visit
friends in the interior of the state , and
would soon return to her homo in Scot
land td reside permanently.
