at once sought tin interview with Miss Potti-

ho loved her , und that her mnrrki o to an
other would kill htm. ' 1'hls softened lior
heart , nnd she then and there consented to
cancel the engagement with the Mlssourlun ,
She wrote him tbut Mio hud changed her
mind and tlmHhc loved another. Goodman ,
on rccciviuir " the notlco , took thu flrnt train ,
nrrlviDK at" Winchester more than n week
ORO , Ho , too , sought an Interview with
Miss Pottlcord , and she promised to bo
his partner. Thinking he hud everything his
own WHY , Goodman went to life hotel , but
Jackson called and miulo another more
affecting appeal , nud her mind was afiuln
chanced. Tills was kept up for a week , llrst
ono and then thu other being the victor.
Pools wore sold on the result , unti nothing
else win tulkud of In Winchester. One Sun
day evening Goodman had an cuuncment : to
cull , und , getting tired of the fickleness of
the wouuui , concluded to take with him a
minister anil n license unU eetllo the matter
ba.yond recall. Imugiue his chagrin to find
that Juukson hnd called half an hour before ,
armed with u license and minister , and when
Goodman arrived ho found thai JuuUson hud
won thu urizo.
The body of u young woman was found
floating In the rippling water of tha bay oil
the buttery at San Francisco the other day.
The luce was handsome und refined looking.
A wealth of golden brown hair fell in ring
lets below her waist , Uho clothing on the
body was good und of line quality. Small
high-heeled slippers of French glove kid and
silk stockings covered the extremities , and
on the Btiuill , well-shaped hands was n pair
of black kid gloves. The body was taken to
the morgue , uud while there hundreds of
men and women culled to see it , but no ono
identified It. The story was printed in the
Evening World and attracted widespread
attention. Among the many who read
it was Laura Wilder , who was liv
ing with a friend named Linda
Giiris in a quiet boarding house on
East Twenty-seventh street. The girls
wore young und handsome , but while Mils
Gurls was usually bright und vivacious ,
Miss Wilder < ccmcd sad and despondent , us
if she hud met with some great sorrow.
Graduuli.v her story became known through
the medium of Miss Gurls.
She hud been engaged to be married to a
young man in South Enston , Pa. , tunned
Fred Uowuian. He was of a very jealous
disposition. She was very high tempered ,
and when he met her on the street in Euston
ono night talking to a male acquaintance , ho
accused her of being false to him and spoke
words that should never have been said.
She replied spiritedly , and he went uway ,
suyiug she- would never BOO him again. Ho
disappeared , and after waiting a few duvs
for him to return , she came to New YorK.
Miss ( Juris , u friend of her childhood , and
who was to Imvo been her bridesmaid , ac
companied her. Miss Wilder was on the
verge of desperation when she heard of the
finding of the unknown woman's body in the
water , nnd her Urst thougnt was : "Why
should 1 not go and end my troubles as this
poor creature has dono. " But , upon reflect
ing , another nnd a brighter idea o.iuio to her
mind and she determined to act upon it.
After consulting with Mins Garis Miss
Wilder wont to the morgue and asked
Keeper l < ogarty to show her the body. Ho
dla so , and then she coolly identified it as
being the body of Laura Wilder , of South
Easton , Pa.
Questioned by Fogarty. she gave her nruno
as Linda Guris , a coufin of Laura's , und
then went on to tell of "poor Laura's heavy
heart muco Fred Bowman deserted her. "
She refused to give h'er address , but when
going away promised to return next day with
Laura's parents , whom she said she would
telegraph for. She returned to her boarding
house , and then waited with Miss Guris to
sco how their ruse would result. It worked
to perfection. Every newspaper published
the fact that the body had been identified as
that of Laura Wilder , and the news was tel
egraphed fur and wide. Fred JJowmuu saw ,
it in u paper in a western train
anil then lie realized what his
foojlsh jealousy hud caused him.
Ho immediately telegraphed money to
Warden O'Uourko , of Bellevue Hospital , to
bury the girl , und came In potst-husto to at
tend tbo funeral nnd take , as ho thought ,
and last.look at the face of the girl ho loved
BO well. On his urrlvul at the morgue ho
was most agreeably surprised to Und , upon
looking at the body , that it was not tlmt of
Miss Wilder. Hu went away puzzled to know
who could have Identified ber as such , und for
what reason. Hu hud not gene many steps
when ho beard a sweet voice suy softly :
"Fred ! "
Ho turned about , and there before him
"My Laura , " ho murmured fondly , and
tbero thny embraced , careless of everyone.
She had been on the watch for him every
day slnca she had made the false identifica
tion , and us she bad thought , her lover did
coma to sea if she had rcully passed from his
Hfo forever. They wont to Laura's boarding
house and a quiet marriage followed.
Mr. Bowman's money buried the dead
, woman's body. She was interred in Ever-
groou cemetery , uud perhaps some day her
atory may bo inudo known.
J. E. Hutcherson , a popular Mobile & Ohio
railroad freight conductor , of Jackson.Tonu. ,
was engaged to marry Miss Liottlo MuUanlol ,
of Dyer , Tonn. , and wont up to consummate
the vows. A friend advised him not to marry
the girl , but ho insisted , The pair were on
the floor when the friend spoke to him ag.iln
mid ho loft the house , declaring tie would not
marry. The bride's friends followed him to
the depot , threatening trouble if ho did not
return. The train pulled In about that time ,
uud ho boarded it and went to Humboldt. Ha
telegraphed Trainmaster McICivItt to take
his time and settle his outstanding debts ,
that ho was going to Mexico , 'l w affair has
caused a sensation , Miss MoDunlol , who be
longs to a respectable family , Is utmost heart
broken. It is said that thp statements which
caused the trouble were of a serious nature.
Ono of the most sensational marriages
took place not far from Villa Hlca tbo other
morning that has ever happened in that part
of Georgia , Not far out from town , u farmer
resides who hud a daughter possessing more
than ordinary beauty und accomplishments ,
whoso heart two gentlemen sought. It bo-
cumo evident to each of the gentlemen that
lic had only one heart und that she would
marry ono of them soon. For u week ,
Madame Humor has it , tha lamp was not ox-
tlugulshed , bcca J Q of ouo or the other call
ing on her. nnd "they say" she promised
each ono to take him.
Ono o.f those gentlemen was a young widower
ewer arid the other u handsome young fellow
of about twenty-three summers. It Is said
the old lolir.it were rather Inclined to tha
young widower , and the young lady pre
ferred the young man , nnd so the fight went
bravely on until the community for a mile
or two 0round took Bides with the boys. For
a week pools were gold on tha boys. Ono
day widower stock would bo way up yonder ,
UUd portions iu less than a day thp young
man stock would run up.
Ouo Saturday evening the young man came
to town to try to got up u settlement of the
matter , but before he could gain an audience
with the young widower he received a dis
patch to coma at once , for , behold , all things
were ready , uud to come quickly ; not to con
sume any time Inviting them In , When ho
reached-tho farm the bird had flown and was
Now comes Sundny , the great day of the
utrugglo , The young widower WAS on hand.
Tha prize Was brought out and she wan in
formed that lie was now rondy. She begged
tlmo. Ho told her , "No ; now or never , " BO
far as he was concerned ,
The preacher asked them If they were
likely to "reach n verdict , " Her reply was
"More tlmo. " Ho told them ho would bo
compelled to bo traveling to reach his np-
polntmont. Hut a has been stntud , the
young widower remained un hi * knees nnd
kept pleading. Finally she yielded and a
courier wui dlsputchrd for the preacher ,
who was qvcrtnkcn § otno distance away ,
thinking over what his text should bo under
suth trying circumstances. Ho was hurried
back and the young widower captured the
prize In a moment the news" flashed over
the settlement nnd the excitement reached
fever heat. At one tlmo thcro seemed to bo
trouble brewing among the fnonds of the
two rivals. As n result the following mar
riage notlco Is printed :
Married At the residence of the bride's
father , Mr. Nathan V. Stulllng , Mr. J. E.
Conner to Miss Eliza Stalling , the Hov. J. U.
T. Lliowntng performing the ceremony.
\ . hermit has Just been discovered living
on the banks of the Itnritan river only a few
miles from Now Urunuwlck. Th hermit Is
a woman over eighty years old nnd lives
alone with an old servant in a secluded man
sion In the woods. She is reported to be
very wealthv , and although most of the
rooms In the house ara never used they Are
handsomely furnished. The hermit keeps to
her room , nnd has not looked on n human
face but that of her old servant for
thirty-two years. Thirty-three yenra ago
she was disappointed In love , nnd
although u reigning belle and heiress , she
withdiow from all society. Her meals are
served to her on cold nnd silver dishes , und
Bho still possesses tno line dresses and jew
elry of her bygone days. She has never
slept on n bed since her disappointment.
The old woman spends her time In reading
the thousands of old dusty volumes In the
bookcase iu her room. She Is the last sur
vivor of an old family und declines to hold
intercourse with anyone. She has twenty-
eight cats , fifteen dogs und a goat , which
she feeds on the choicest viands , und when
any of her pets die she orders that they bo
burled in expensive colllr.s by an limlortukcr
and her wishes are faithfully carried out by
the old snrvniit. Her jewels are kept In nn
iron-bound box In her room. Her estate is
large und is looked after by u prominent
lawyer , who transacts all business through
thu servant. The place Is thought to be
haunted by the Ignorant who shun it. There
ire people who say thut they have .een the
jld servant digging In the woods by the
Ight of a lantern , nnd this fact they thin it
ins given rise to the ghost stories. A largo
mount of money nnd valuables la said to bo
juried in the woods surrounding the house.
The hermit's name is Herrltt.
A sensational case wus tried in Justice Pnt-
lok's court , hi Tucoinn , the other night , two
ItaliansMartin Pctrochund Santos Cordova ,
icing principals. Cordova wus the self-ns-
jtimcd guardian of n pretty , durk-oved Ital-
un girl. He clothed und educated her and
ntonded some day te make her his wife.
About April 1 ijotreck appeared upon the
Decile and also fell in love with tne maiden ,
and proposed marriage , but the young ludy
.old him that Santos hud u lion on her nlTcc-
, ions. Petreck asked Santos what ho would
; uko for his chances. Ho set the price at
JlfiO , und n bargain was made. Pet-
reck paid Cordova ? 50 iu cash and gave
1iim u note for $100 payable in two years , for
which consideration Cordova gava up all
claim to the maiden. Petrock was not us
happy as he expected to bo. The maiden did
not lavish upon him the same ufTcction that
she had shown Cordova. Ho got tired of
: ho bargain and wanted 10 trade back. Hu
jlniilly secured the note for $100 , but Cordo
va was obstinate us to the $50 and ho was
luod. The court decided that nn illegal con-
.ruet had been made , the terms of which
could not be enforced. Cordova won the
suit and the plaintiff had to pay the costs.
The maiden thinks Potreck had a mercenary
motive in the affection and still clings to
Cordova , her llrst lovo.
Crampol , one of Do Bruzza's assistants in
the French Congo territory , has just sur-
prlued all his friends by bringing to Franco
a young black * womanwho wus presented to
him as a wlfo during his recent explorations
east of the Ogowo river. She is a youug
savage of rather pleasing features and
graceful form and carriage , who still feels
decidedly queer in dress and regards with
open-mouthed astonishment about every
thing she sees. When Mr. Gronfol married
a native of Africa a while ago his choice was
a coast girl who hnd boon nurtured for
years at a mission station , and who was a
civilized und Christian young person. But
the dusky flower that Crampel bus brought
borne with him was plucked from the depths
of savage Africa. Neither she nor any ot
her people had over seen a white man be
fore.Crampel started eleven mouths ago \vlth
thirty carriers to make a Journey through
the unknown regions northeastof the Ogowo.
After weeks of traveling ho reached a great
forest region directly east of thp district ex
plored by Du Chaillu , where no white man
had over been before. This Is the country
of the M'fnngs , whoso language differed so
greatly from any with winch the explorer
was acquainted that ho had the greatest (11 f-
liculty iu communicating with tbo natives.
The M'fungs , however , gave Crumpci u hos
pitable reception , and ho spent nevcral
weeks with thorn. When ho was about to go
away one of the chiefs came to him lending a
very dark and nearly nude belle of the tribe.
Ho told the white man that he liked him , and
as a mark of his esteem ho wished to present
him wlth.ono of his own daughters. Ho said
she was the daughter of a chief , and must not
be mudo a slave , but if the white
man would take her for his wife lie might
bavo hor. Offnrs of this sort are often made
to African explorers , and they usually de
cline with thuuks the delicate proposal.
Crampol , however , said ho would tuko the
girl us his wife , uud that young person , notti-
ing loth , sot out with the explorer for the
sea , and has probably bid u last farewell to
her native forests. It Is not known whotner
Crutnpol's choice is approved by his relations ,
but ho seems to be satisfied , and of course ho
will tuko the girl back to Africa with him
when ho returns. Among the interesting
discoveries mudq by Crampol Is thut of u
largo dwarf tribe , who are doubtless identi
cal with or allied to the O Bongo dwarf dis
covered by Iu ) Cbuillu.
A pretty story , pretty enough to bo true ,
in told of Princess Loulsawho recently wed
ded the Earl of Fife. It seams this shy royal
maiden bad boon "stuck on" the curl for
years , in fact , oven before Bho came out ; '
but she had never told her love , nor did the
earl tell his uutll a kind court busybody ,
guessing the secret , went to papa with Iu
And during all those live years the princess
always bought a birthday present for the
man she loved , but as she never dared give
it to him tbo little gift was laid away in a
drawer and carefully locKed up.
There is something exceedingly touching
in this lit of girlish sentiment , and , with it
in mind , no wonder the Prince of Wales
ipokoof his dnu h'o.'s engagement n ono
of pure affection. A girl like this will make
a tender , loving wife.
A Modern Mnrtha' * Martyrdom.
A cortnln woman , says n writer in
the Atlanta Constitution , hiul a largo
family nml llttlo means , but , bo I tip pos
sessed of untiring energy and great am-
bltlon , she managed to mnko her
means go fnr < She tolled early und late
tlmt hoi * house might bo sootlossly
clean , her children well dressed nnd
her tnblo spread with good things.
Bnt it en tno to pass ut length she no
ticed she wns cro.wing blind. She
could work ns well ns over , but she of
ten heard "friends speak of scolng
things which she could not see at all ,
and many things which had been
bright to her began now to grow dim.
And her husband , when ho nskcd her
to walk with him into untried path * ! ,
noticed that shu often stumbled and
Beamoil not to see her way. Anit ho
saw that she was going blind , and it
grieved him , and ho said : "Mary , you
tire going blind. Can you not spare
your eyes In some way , and care for
\hotn that they grow strong again ?
Take loss care In the household and
more of your sight. I entreat you. "
But she answered him inuigmuiUy :
"What , take time from my hou.shold
and my children for so selfish a purpose !
Novor'l I will do my duty , and If I tun.
blind I am blind. "
And ho sorrowed much , and re
doubled his olforts to make money , that
she might have tlmo to save her sight.
But as her moans increased so also in
creased her ambition and her pride.
Her household achievement : ! were
known throughout1 the land. Forty-
seven dittcrcnt kinds of cake did she
make and thirty-nlno varieties of pie ,
and her house was filled with beautiful
embroideries and line needle work done
with her own hands. But her blindnosa
increased , and in the untried paths her
husband walked nlono.
And her children grow. And by and
bv came ono of them to her and said :
" 'Mother , the way before my foot Is
dark. Ic.vnnot soo. Come thou with
mo and show n < o to the light. "
And in sorrow the mother answered ,
"I cannot como , my child , for I am
And another came nnd said : "Mother ,
behold for mo a now heaven and a now
earth ; for the things ot my childhood
seem to have passed away , and in their
stead are all things now filled with
wonders to bo explained , and marvelous
things that I would understand. Come ,
teach me how I may learn of thorn. "
And with deepened sadness the moth
er answered him , too : "I cannot come ,
my child , for I am blind. "
Then the third como and said : "Moth
er , seel a great mountain is hero. I
long for the wonderful view I coukt
gain from its summit. Lead mo , I bo-
sooeh you. to the top , lost I fail to llnd
the way. "
'And him she answered as she had an
swered the others. "
So her chihlern wont from her , nnd
behold , soon there came to lie between
her and thorn adistanco like atrreatgult ,
bridged only by their love and hers
But save in the flashes of bight which
came to her at times , she know it not
for she was blind.
Anil another women had also small
means and a largo family. She , too ,
toiled early and late that they m'-rht ' bo
well fed and plothed. But when to her
came the knowledge como to her that
she was threatened with blindness , she
"This thing shall not bo. For my
husband's sake , and for my children's
sake , I must save my sight. ' '
So she sot apart each day some time
when she oould care for her eyes , nnd do
those things necessary to prevent
blindness. And with this care her eyes
grew strong nnd her sight clear , oven
clearer than in her youth. And it was
eo that when she Walked with her hus
band in an untried path , it was she who
wns his guide and helped him on.
But it happened by this moans her
table was not filled with dainties , but
onlywith plain substantial food and her
children wont often , day after day in
clean gingham gowns.
And her children grew. Ana by and
by came ono of thorn to her side and
said : "Mother , the way is dark , show
me how I shall walk in it. "
And her clear sight showed nor in
the darkness a light , and she said :
"Walk I will direct . "
on , my son , you.
And she directed him until ho , too ,
saw the light , and was glad.
And when another came nnd told her
of the wonders which heaveji and earth
presented to him how to interpret mir
acles nnd understand the marvels. And
for another she pointed out the path' up
the rugged mountain side and stood
with him at the top looking- out on the
beauties which lay before them.
So it was that over she walked with
her husband and children , directing
and cruiding them. And she wus to
them a light In dark places.
And one of the&o women was foolish
and the other wiso.

Canadian UnU way Competition.
Minneapolis Tribune : All this talk
about the immense subsidies received
by the Canadian Pacific is nonsense. It
1ms not been aided more liberally than
were its American comuetitors , und , besides -
sides , subsidies for purposes of construc
tion are not a factor in determining
operating cxnonses. As long as Cana
dian roads bidding for American tralllo
comply with American laws applicable
to them , and pursue none but fair and
just tactics , the clamor for railway re
striction can make no headway.

every form of Disease requiring MEDICAL , or SURGICAL
in tnis department ; we are especially u < cessrui. our t uuma or superiority ovot
nil others arc based upon the fact that this is the only mcilical establishment man
ufacturing surgical braces and appliances for each individual case. Wo hava
throe skilled instrument makers in our employ , with improved machinery , and
have all tlio latest inventions , as well as our own patents und improvements ,
the result of twenty years' experience.
Tlio treatment of diseases by electricity has undergone great changes within the
past few years , und electricity is now acknowledged by all schools of medicine as the
great remedy in all chronic , special and nerve diseases , for nervous debility , par
alysis , rheumatism , diseases of women , etc. , and in many eye and ear diseases it
is the most valuable of all remedies.
In order to obtain its full virtues , it is absolutely necessary to have the proper
apparatus. We have lately purchased three of the largest and most complete
batteries manufactured , so constructed as to give the most gentle as well as the
most powerful current. Persons treated at this Institute by electricity recognize
at once the difference between our expensive and complete electrical apparatus
and the common , cheap batteries , in use by many physicians. Over 8,000 dollars
invested in electrical apparatus.
PRIVATE , SPECIAL , NERVOUS AND
We claim to be the only reliable , responsible establishment in the west making
a specialty of this class of diseases. Dr. J'cMonumy was one Jf the first thorough
ly educated physicians to make a special study of this class of diseases , and hia
methods anu inventions have been adopted b/specialists in Eurono and America.
He is the inventor of the Clamp Compress Suspensory , acknowledged the best in
use. All others are copied after his invention. By moans of a simple operation ,
painless and safe , recently brought into use , wo cure many cases that have been
given up as incurable by medical treatment. ( Read our look to men , sent free to any
DISEASES OF THE EYE AND EAR.
We have had wonderful success in this department in the
past year , and have made many improvements in our facili
ties for treatment , operations , artificial eyes , etc.
Wo have greatly improved our facilities and methods of
_ treutinir cases by correspondence , and are having bettor
success in this department than ever before.
We are fully up to the times in all the latest inventions in medical and surgical
operations , appliances and instruments. Our institution is open for investiga
tion to any persons , patients or physicians. Wo invite nil to correspond with or
visit us before taking treatment elsewhere , believing that a visit or consultation
will convince any intelligent person that it is to their advantage to place them
selves under our caro.
