A Courtship by Letter.
Mrs. Mary M. Stevens, of Lincoln,
was married the first of the week at
Grand Island to Nelson Wetson, of
Cheyenne. The marriage- was the out
come of a strange correspondence. A
friend of Mrs. Stevens is in the employ
of Kelson in Cheyenne, and suggested
to him one evening that he, knew of a
-woman who would make him an excel
lent wife. Nelson agreed, if the fail
creature should prove acceptable and
could be won, to marry her. He imme
diately wrote to Mrs. Stevens, setting'
forth that he was the owner of a large
And paying ranch, was well off in the
-world and wanted some one to share his
lot and help eat his potatoes. -The lady
was not averse to embarking in ' the
matrimonial sea for a second time, and
agreed that if everything was as repre
sented and the man was of a good moral
character she would accept.
She was folly satisfied on these points
and they immediately considered them
selves engaged. Business interests pro
vented Nelson leaving home longenongb
to come to Lincoln and he did not wish
to be bo nngallant as to compel his be
trothed to go to him, so they compro
xnised"and agreed to meet at Grand Is
land. Mrs. Stevens left for Grand Island,
-where the couple met for the first time.
Both considered that they had secured a
bargain and were made one at once.
A letter was received in this city from
the happy bride, in which she ' says that
he is just glorious and too sweet for any
thing. Cor. Omaha World-Herald. :
Collecting Back Dues. v ,
The charming blond who presides at
the registered letter jwindow of the post
office threw up her dainty hands with
surprise a few days ago when a gentle
man walked up to the window, and up
turning a big grip dumped its contents
before her. There were 470 letters to be
registered. Such a task had never be
fore fallen to her lot. Her appeal for
help brought the chief of the division,
who provided help in the shape of three
assistants for. her, and the pile was soon
disposed of. The man stood by until
the receipts were given him.
"The fact is," he explained, "I am sec
xetary of a fashionable club, and it's the
most difficult matter in the world to
make them pay up. I send hundreds of
balls, and when 1 speak to members
about it it's always the same story: I
sever got the bill, old fel; certainly I'll
pay up. Just send me a bill and 111 see
that yon get it. There are 470 delin
quents in the club and ' I'll be sure they
all get their bills this quarter." ; ;
.The responses have already begun to
corno in in a way that foretells the en
tire success of the scheme. Philadelphia

The Horrors of Sport
"Sport" is horrible. I say it advised
ly. 1 speak with the matured experi
ence of one who has seen and taken part
in sport of many and varied' kinds 'in
many and varied parts of the world. 1
can handle gun and rifle as well and
efficiently as most Reporting folk," and
few women, and not many men, have
indulged in a tithe of the shooting and
bunting in which 1 have been engaged
both at home and during travels and ex
peditions in far away lands. It is not,
therefore, as a novice that I take up my
pen to record why 1, whom some .have
called a "female Niinrod," have come to
regard with absolute loathing and detes
tation any sort or kind or form of sport
which in anyway is produced by the
suffering of animals. Lady Florence
The Innumerable Chrysanthemums.
The Japanese cite 269 color varieties of
the chrysanthemum, of which 63 are
yellow, 87 white, S3 purple, SO red, SI
pale pink, 12 russet and 14 of mixed col
era, A fancy prevails' in the country
that in this flower the same tint is never
exactly reproduced, and that in .this it
resembles the endless variety of the
human countenance. Gnrdan " "
Stocking Kept Hlack.
Black stockings are apt to assume a
greenish look after repeated washings.
We are ' told, that a simple way of pre
serving the color is to wash them in soap
free of soda, and in the last rinsing water
to add a tablespoonful of good vinegar.
Wring them out and clap them into
shape. A hot iron tends to destroy the
color, particularly' if they are wet

to terms. So crowded was a local train
on the Morris and Essex railroad, that
many of the passengers could not find
6eats. As the train started, an indig
nant Teuton stopped the train by pulling
the bell cord and demanded that an
empty car on the track be attached.
The other passengers sustained him, but
the demands were not heeded. When
the train started again the German onco
more pulled the bell cord and announced
that he would pull it every time the
train started unless another car was at
tached. After considerable dispute the
railroad officials gave in, backed down
the train, attached another car, and
thus furnished seats for all ita passen

A Metmr with .Gold ia It.
The discovery of gold in a meteorite
which has just been made by Federa
Government Geologist Turner in Cali
fornia, is of unusual interest. ' Tho
meteorite in question is about the size of
a man's fist, and around a good ' portion
of it is a solid film of gold. In one part
the metal is about an inch square. Gold
has never before been found in connec
tion with meteoric iron, and it demon
strates, says Mr. Turner, "that there is
gold in the worlds of space." New

Found No Indiana.
A New Haven small boy who ran
away from home four years ago to slay
Indians was heard from the first time
the other day, when he wrote to his par
ents. According to his letter he had trav
eled over nearly every state west of the
Mississippi, and had endured untold pri
vations, but had not succeeded in his un
dertaking. He ia said to be on his way
home, heartily sick of his wild life, Ex
The town of Fort Benton, Mon., which
a few years ago had a population of over
3,500, now has less than 200, and the
greater part of this it is expected will
be wiped out by the recent action of a
railroad company in deciding to move
its tracks about five miles away. .
While seeing the sights of St. Louis
some days ago Mr. T. Julian, of Wash
ington, Ind., visited the morgue. There
a painful shock awaited 'him. On one
of the tables he unexpectedly ' saw the

seen or beard of for many years. .
