The Ban Pedro loomed up out of the

ADDS TO GRIEF
BraTe Whitney of Columbia
; Married on Unlucky ;
rn Thirteenth. i
One week from the day of hie mar
riage. William T. Whitney, first officer
of the ateamer Columbia, waa drowned
when his ship went to the bottom after
being rammed by the San Pedro off
Shelter. Cove on the California coast
His young bride, who wslted for him In
Portland, awoke Monday with a sense of
Joy, realising that It was the day for
thi return of her husband's ship, and
befora the day had paseed learned that
the ship had gone down.
Grief stricken, her misery heightened
by superstitious fears, little Mrs. Whit
ney wanders about her horns, seeking
comfort f ronv the- sorrow that threatens
to overwhelm her.
Mrs. Whitney was Miss May Orenler.
On Saturday, July II, she and First Of
ficer Whitney went to the court house,
secured a marriage license, and were
married by judge wenster. They lett
the Judge's office in happy content. Tea
terday afternoon a sad woman-bowed
with grief, entered the Judge's offloe
again. It waa Mrs. Whitney.
Turning in ner misery to tne Old su
perstition, Mrs. Whitney railed at the
thirteenth of the month, blamed herself
for her sorrow for having been married
on the thirteenth, and said she had a
presentment of Impending trouble.
"Oh why wss I married on the thir
teenth of the month V she cried ss ahe
struggled to keep back the tears. "I
knew it was unlucky I felt at the time
that something awful would happen;
something told me to tear up the license
and wslt till some other day. Why waa
our wedding day on the thlrteenthT"
Mrs. Whitney Is staying with friends
in a suburb of the city. j
