Novelettes In Ono Chapter.
The account o ( the ononlne of Bar
nard college , which memorializes the
name of the late president of Columbia
college , recalls a pretty little romance
of long r.go. Two score years ago , in
Dayton , O. , the custom prevailed of
holding market days several times a
week. There wore extensive "market
houses , " the roofs of which projected
six or eight foot and alTordod a shelter
beneath which the farmers ana garden
ers displayed their produce for sale.
Along one end of thd market house ran
n principal thoroughfare , traveled daily
by the business and professional men
of the town. Ono soft , sunshiny spring
morning there appeared in the market
house a flower girl , selling bouquets.
The girl was young and charming and
epoko with a pretty French accent.
The first young man who passed that
way bought u bpuquot. Everyone who
followed did likewise. In an hour the
llrst ( lower sale that had ever Ink on
place in Dayton was ended , the stock
sold out , and the fair vendor disappeared.
For two seasons the flower girl lit
up the dingy inurkot'hoimo by her
bright presence. Ono day she was gone.
From that time the place know her no
more. Years after 0110 of the young
ladies who had been a patron of the fair
llowor-sollor was in New York shopping
in Dcnning's , or , as it was known tiien ,
Stownrt's. A stranger approached , and ,
greeting her by hot- maiden name , ex
pressed much pleasure at the meeting
and inquired for Dayton people.
"Doubtless you htivo forgotten mo , "
said the stranger , "but you used to buy
my flowers in the market-house. That
was long ago. 1 live hero now. lam
married. Hero Is my card. " It bore
the name of the wife of President Bur-
imrd. She subsequently explained that
her father was a wealthy Frunolmiun ,
but for political reasons was exiled and
itnd his estates confiscated. He came to
America und drifted to Dayton , whore

living by soiling bouquets. Later his

A ripple of excitement broke over
Victoria , B. 0. , the other day , when it
was found that iv damsel in that quiet
city had skipped across the stormy
straits of Ran .hum de Sueu with hot-
true love , a sailor bold from the man-of-
war Swiftsuro ,
After the Swiftsura became quartered
thorn , one of hor'orew , a blue-jacket by
the name of James Paul , had laid ilogu
to the heart of MUs K. Norimin , the
daughter of u well known citizen there.
As usual , the course of true love did not
run a in oath , for the father objected to
his daughter wedding the sailor hid , but
said it PAU ! could got his discharge
from the navy the knot could bo tied.
Applications for discharge were f > ont
in and arrangements made for the mar
riage feast. But the discharge was not
granted. But love is a'determined fac
tor in human life , and the two fond
hearts wore bound to bo locked in bliss.
So the sailor lad borrowed a boat one
night from the healing schooner Sap
phire , and with his fair inamorata went
skimming across the straits to Port An
geles to the land of liberty , where the
queen's naval otllcors have no terrors
and the cruel parent was not.
The first intimation of the retreat of
the pair was a telegram from Sharif !
Morse , of Port Angeles , stating that a
boat marked "Sapphire Victoria , " had
come into nort with a girl and a naval
Captain Cox , of the Sapphire , tele
graphed back to hold tub boat , and
steps were taken to charter a small
steamer to gat it back.
Rider Norman , who was in n terrible
state of mind over his daughter's
flight , was to accompany Captain Cox
in the chase for the boat and try to
bring the girl back. Before the plan
was carried out another dispatch was
received stutfiig that the boat had boon
shipped to Port Townsend on the
steamer Idaho , and the fleeing pair
had gone with the steamer as passen

The father of the eloping girl says she
has always been n good girl , and hopes
she will not rue the hasty step ,
A well-dressed and unusually hand-
somayoung lady , about eighteen yours
of ngo , approached the ticket window
at the union depot , Birmingharu , Ala. ,
the other night , and a she a some ques
tions about the schedule of trains be
tween that city and Nevada , Mo. After
she had received the desired informa
tion and purchased her ticket she said
"If I don't toll somebody about my
troubles I fool like I'll die ! I am to
heart-broken and sad oven to crv. " She
said she belonged to ono of the first
families of Nevada , Mo. , and that she
was an onjy child. Three months ngo
u woll-drebsod man , with prepossessing
manners , came to the town whore she
resided to spend the summer. lie- hailed
from n small town in south A'ost
Alabama , the iiiuno ot which she
refused to divulge. Soon after
t'lo hnndeomo stranger came to
Nevada , she mot him and they were
soon fast friends. lie represented him
self to bo straightforward in every way.
and convinced her parents of that fact ,
She married him. The marriage was
the boeial event of thobcason in Nevada ,
and was largely nttondod by friends.
They left and took a bridal trip through
the country , visiting all the principal
cities , i |
Then they reached the bridegroom's
homo. Ho lived on tv large farm and
appeared to bo wealthy. As soon us
they arrived she noticed that her hus
band's munnor and treatment to her
had suddenly changed , and upon outer-
ing the house she was surprlbcu to find
another woman in posbcssion'und soy
orul children playing about the placo.
In explanation her husband told her
that the woman at the house was his
other wlfo , and would bo mistress of
the place , and she ( the bride ) could ro-
niulii if she so doslrod. but aha would
have to behave herself und submit to
his orders , IIo began to bo brutal
to her and threatened violence several
times. Although overcome with grief ,
she kept her wits , and behaved herself.
She wrote to her father for money to
come homo on without explaining the
situation , and as soon as she received
the money she loft. She said that she
crept away' from the house and walked
to the railroad station ulotio at mid
night , a distance of three miles , und
caught the train. She said her maiden
name was Jennie Buchanan , but posi
tively refused to tell the name of the
man who so cruelly deceived her or the
town whore ho lived.
Charles V-n ont , of Bowling Qra en ,
Ky. , has shown that a young man can
bo as fickle as u girl. Ho was to have
married Miss Lena Allen , the pretty
organist at the Methodist church at
Elizabeth town , but when the hour ar
rived , with the church filled and the
minister waiting , Amont failed to ap
pear to go with his bride to the altar.
Instead ho sent Miss Allen a letter
announcing ho had changed his mind
and had decided to go west. At the
same tima ho wrote another sweetheart
in Bowling Green that ho was gone
but not to got married. Miss Allen
belongs to one of the best families in
Kli/.abethtown und thorp was much in
dignation over her disappointment.
The other day Miss Allen received a
letter from the fugitive , stating that if
she would forgive and forgot ho would
come back and marry hor. Her reply
was satisfactory and ho soon reached
Elizubathtown. and the faithful girl
was wedded to him. Thecorotnony was
private. The only hint of an explana
tion is Amont's letter to the other girl.
Early last summer a young girl at
Summorsido , Prince Edward's island ,
Ontario , wrolo her name and address
upon an egg , which subsequently found
ila way to Boston , Mass. , among other
shipments. The parents of the young
lady visited Boston , recently , and ,
strange to say , were introduced to the
young Bostonian who had received the
egg , and who asked thorn if they know
the young lady , their own daughter.
Explanations followed and a corrospon-
do n co was opened. The wedding is to
take place in December.
Miss E. Ethel Russell , of Columbus ,
O , . was married there the other day by
Rev. Warner Moore to J. W. Ambos.
It was a runaway alTuir at least on the
part of the bride. She is a daughter of
Colonel J. W. Russell , proprietor of the
Ethcldalo Stock farm , near Columbus.
Ambos travels for a hedge fence con
cern , and met Miss Russell while ope
rating around Columbus during the
summer , They fell in love with ouch
other but the girl's father forbade the
bans , and Ainbos wont to Memphis.
lie managed to keep up a correspon
dence with his sweetheart , and finally
suggested thutsho join him there and
bo married , Accordingly she left Co
lumbus , was mot by her lever at Cor
inth , Mies. , ar.d came to Memphis with
him.Thoy were married almost immedi
ately on their arrival and telegraphed
the fuut to the bride's father.
Harry S.-Voss , who had boon loclcod
up in the Atlanta city prison , was re
cently released. Voss was arrested on
telegram from Richmond , Va. , accusing
him of grand larceny , The accusation
was only un excuse for having him ar
rested , us it was claimed that ho hud
broken open his wife's trunk to get
money to elope with Mius Mollin Atkin
son. The morning of his release Mrs ,
Voss appeared on thoscono and told her
Mrs. Voss is a very pretty young
woman about twonty-threo yours old
und u brunottcu. When she was brought
into police court by Chief Connolly she
told her recreant husband that she for
gave him freely for all Ins sins and
agreed to take him back if ho would
only live for her and love her as ho
did when ho married her five yours tigo.
Ilor husband was completely over
come by the kindness of the wife whom
ho had deserted , and promised that ho
would return and do us she wished.
Miss Mollie Atkinson wu's brought up
to the office of chief of police by Capt'iin
Couch and the meeting between the
two women was most tragic.
"Don't you think you have wronged
mo greatly ? " said Mrs. Voss , "after all
I have done for you ? After treating
you as a sister , do you not think that
you have wronged mo deeply ? "
"Yes , " said the younger woman , "I
have done you great wrong und I pray
you to forgive irio. "
"Of course I forgive you , " said Mrs.
Voss , only you must forgot all this and
return to your homo and lead a bettor
"I will do it , and I will bo your ser
vant , if in that way I can atone for the
miaory that I have caused you. Oh ,

"Never mind about that , " said Mrs.
Voss. "If you will only return and load
a virtuous life I can freely forgive you
for all the pain that you have caused
