CHAMPION HENPECKED MAN
Chicago Mnn Solemnly Tfll Wltt
cv Chlcngo Woman Did
August F. W. Slebel is a Chicago law
yer -who annexed' a wife some nine years
ago. Although three children were born
of the union, the elders pulled off trouble
enough to stock a dozen happy homes.
Mrs. Siebel was first tc tire of her
Job and applied for a divorce. In answer
ing her allegations, Mr. slebel bared the
secrets of his soul, also his bruises, and
gave Bamples of what a Chicago wife,
can do when mind and muscle are con
centrated on the Job.
Mr. Slebel's troubles, he said, began
a few months after the marriage and
culminated In a three-day battle, which
started on December 31, 1907, and con
tinued until January 2, 1908, when, for
self-preservation, he packed up and left
home. His disagreements with his wife,
as the- bid stated, all had their origin
In his wife's overweening delight in "tl)e
Rlare of midnight enjoyment." In less
melodramatic language, this moans that
Mrs. Slebel was visiting gaudy restau
rants at night, while husband stayed at
home and minded the babies.
Mrs. Slebel, said her husband, not only
beat him regularly and earnestly, but
boasted of her pugilistic ability.
Among the instruments of her wrath
were tho following: A hammer, scissors,
her fists, her teeth, h plate, a section of J
gas hose, a small gns stoves a foot rule
her shoes, his rater, a wrench, a butcher
knife, their furniture.
Also, said 8lebel. his wife Unketl h in
in the house and kicked him out of tin
house. When she grew weary of beating
him herself, he stated, she called in lui' '
mother and slstet to finish the Job. Pom
times some of her neighbor friends came
in and operated on him, he said On Ma 1
SO. 1908. his bill stated, he was under
orders to take the part of marshal In '
the Spanish War Veterans" dUlslou of
the Memorial day parade, lie had Just I
got his uniform on. said Slebel. when his
wife without provocation, struck him w th
n hammer. Then began a battle, whuh
continued until some of Slebel's comrades j
appeared to Inquire why he had not
started downtown. Mts. Slebel. said tho I
bill, went to the door to answer these 'n
qttlrers, whereupon Slebel escaped to the '
street via a ack window. 1
Another time, said Slebel, he called at I
the home to take the children for a ,
street car ride. His wife, he said, tried
to drag l.lm Into the house, "tearing his !
clothes and biting him severely on the
chest. ' Uci'ig unable to get him Inside, t
he .-ne called to her assistance I
one iaoIi Dodds, who came with a ham- i
mr. nn.-i 'with (if said women thereupon
utlfti.! till to drag your orator Into said
house and do him bodily harm, and your
orator was released from tho grasp of
both said wgmen only when he called I
to n passing trangr."
One of the things that made Slebl i
w.uU to leave home, said his bill, was ,
his wife's curtain lectures. ,
On other occasions said Slebel. his wife 1
refused to allow him to go to bed. bin
locked him and hi-rsrlf up In a bathroom. .
"Ho was obliged to lie on Hie floor. I
said tin b!l', ".md endeavor to sleep, but I
said rntr'.Ia 11. tilnbel by h-r continual i
abuse, spitting In your orator's face an I
striking him, rwntc-1 him from even
socuring sleep In the bathroom."
After that, said tho bill, Mrs. Slebel
throw her shoes at her husband, lacerat
ing his Jaw ami followed thla by hurling
a pair of scissors at his head with' such
violence that the scissors wore broken.
Theso weapons, said the bill, apparently
having failed of their desired effect Mrs,
Slebel went for her husband's raior. He
took the raxor from her and ran out of
tho house. Shrj followed with tho gas
hose and best hhn In the street till he
bled. He finally gut away and estab
lished himself Jn a stparate residence.

With the return of the holiday season
Germans, and especially Borliners, think '
a great deal of their health nnd how It Is
to bo recuperated after the exertions of1
the last year. U)ndmi Chronicle's Berlin
correspondent declares that, perhaps more
than the members of any other nation, I
they consider the hygienic ride of their
holiday, with the result that In every Oer- 1
man summer resort of importance thero
are opportunities afforded lor all sorts of
experiments. Among these is tho Sonnen- I
bad, the sun bath, which is apparently
growing in popularity, and seems to have I
an Increasing body of medical opinio In '
Its favor. All that Is required Is tho sun, 1
and tho sunjs rays hitherto have been
free and untaxed, t the simplest and
perhaps the most harmlessifo'rm of light
The bathers must be protected from the
wind, and, In a position open to the south,
they recline on rugs, dry' sand or heather.
The head must be protected against the
sun's rays, and the position of the, body
changed every ten minutes or so- In order
to avoid too strongly sunning any part of
the body. A bath ought not In any case
to last longer than an hour. The results
are profuse perspiration, redness of the
skin, and In weak or sensitive persons
dizziness, excitement and fainting.
Sun baths are especially resorted to in
Germany In the cases of certnln forms of
skin diseases, corpulence, and a number
of kindred ailments. Indeed, the fanatics
of the sun bath go so for as to declare
that there Is no disease which the sun,
the all-healer, will not cure, or at least
Sun bathing, of course, has been known
for' centuries. The Romans hud their
solarlums In their villas, where the In
habitants used to sit In the strong rays of
the sun and be cured of rheumatism and
gout. But It was not until tho Swiss,
Arnold IUkll, took up the cause that the
modern world really turned serious at
tention to It.
Rlkll was a sun fanatic, and there can
be no doubt that he exaggerated the effi
cacy of hello-therapeutics. Besides, he
connected it with a number of other
doubtful practices, such as vegetarianism
and barefoot walking on wet grass. It Is
probable that the famous Lahmann Insti
tution near Dresden has struck the happy
mean between the fanatics on the one
side and the old conservative school on
tb other. In Uilimann's sanatorium the
effects of sun and air are scientifically i
combined, and moderate gymnastics take
tfie place of the recumbent llsttessnesa
of the ordinary sun bath.
Berlin Is probably the city where one
can see the sun bath at its greatest popu
larity. Here there' are associations for
sun battling. In the summer these people

CJf The club will pay two hundred

apiece for them the price to include
everything even to the privilege of
paying for them at the rate of one
dollar and a quarter a week.

I have consklcrable pride in this deal.
I consider this the most important piano
transaction 1 have ever made. Jt will save
several tens of thousands of dollars
of money to the f)00 persons who go to

to pay for musical instruction, in taking
a vacation trip, or whatever use they see
fit to make of it.
As. this big purchciBe Is Intended to stand as

how to make It so, represents the extreme limit

AN ABRAHAM LINCOLN STORY
KrlemUlilii ti f (lit War President
ITnmnrred Uy HtrutHrle of
The story la told by Mrs. Pkikett, widow
of the confederate general, George 15.
Pickett, who led the famous charge at the
battle of Gettysburg. 'Hie latter was a
jiatlve of Richmond, Va., and his home
was In that city. President Uncoln was
at General Grant s headquarters, at City
Pirtnl, when the last grand ussault was
nuule and Petersburg was captured, the
confederate government leaders fleeing
southward from Richmond nnd I.ee re
treating westward with his army tow'ard
Appomottox. Richmond was burning, and
everything In confusion. The union troops
In a few days Mr. Uncoln went up on
a gunboat, with a few friends, and visited
various parts of the olty. While making
pie rounds he Inquired where General
Picked lived (I think, however, he hap
pened to see the name "George B. Pick

a moment or two, then knocked
at the duor. The auiuiuoiu wim answered
by Mrs, lMckett herself. On opening the
door she saw a very tall, ungainly look
ing man, who asked Jf George Pickett
"Oeneral Pickett lives here, sir" (with
special emphasis on th word general),
unswered Mrs. Pickett, "but be is not at
home; he Is with Ihe army under General
"Well." unswered the stranger, "will
you pleae tell him when ho returns that
his old friend Abe Lincoln called to see
him? 1 wish you good day, madam," and
lie walked away.

A common man would have said "Presi

Lincoln, and I can Imagine a twinkle In
his eye when he said "Abe" to her. Years
afterward Mrs. Pickett became a widow,
and being destitute, some kind friends ob

a parallel instance of sucn liaguanlmlty ?
This Incident was told u few years ago
In Washington by Mrs. Pickett to Mr. Mc
Cormlck, a promlneut lawyer of Seattle.
A good many people, on hearing the story,
wonder how Uncoln and Pickett could be
so intimate, one an IlllnolHan und the
other a Virginian, but I happens! to know
some of the clrcumstauceti leading to theJr
acquaintance. It seems that many years
lieforo the civil war, In faot befuie the
-var with Mexico, a young nwui named
George K. Pickett was a cadet at West
I Point 1'nlted Stales Military academy,
! appointed from Virginia. For some
'serious Infraction of discipline at school
he. had charges preferred against him
' which were liable lo result In his trial
nnd dismissal from the ucudemy Ueltig

folks In Illinois, not far from Bprlngfleld
(some of whom I afterwards knew), and
while there they enlisted A. Uncoln, a
young lawyor of Springfield, to Intervene
to save he boy ft tun expulsion from West
Point. His efforts were successful; young
Pickett was retained as cadet. He grad
uated with honor the year the war with
Mexico begun, was sent Into the army,
where he an'qultted himself with credit.
