that she had gone and would not return.

The Henrik Ibsen bears the distinc
tion of being Norway's largest freight
steamer and Captain Reinertaen la no
small man. Those who met him here
during the brief stay of the vessel de
clare he appeared to be a fine fellow,
ot middle age, and of pleasant address.
A regrettable feature, however, Is the
. fact that he has a wife and six children
'in Faraund, Norway, who will likely also
be notified of the captain's escapade
while out In the far off western coun
try. The pride of Norway's merchant
rharine was here only a few days; dur
ing the earlier part of last month, hav
ing come here from San Francisco un

no difficulty in being received among
Norwegian society and a number of
