Ida asked, "What is the feeling of
love?" Answer: Love is a very com
plex and complicated combination of
sensations. There are more frost and
fever, more bliss and agony, more smiles
' and tears and more exhilaration and des
peration to the square inch in love than
in all the other experiences of the hu
man family. Philosophers and sages
have tried in vain, ever since the world
began, to find out just exactly what it
is. It is altogether likely that Ida could
answer the question quite as well as the
prophets of old. New York Ledger.

THE ENGAGEMENT RING.
And What Sometimes Follows After It Itj
Received by the Bride Elect.
Somewhat apropos of weddings, at
least of weddings that may be, is a story
told by one of the leading salesmen for a
well known jewelry house. It is not
uncommon for brides elect just after the
election to resort to some sort of clever
artifice to find out the intrinsio value of
the glittering bauble that proclaims her
to be his. Sometimes they do their own
deteotive work, but perhaps more fie-
quently a curious mother takes charge
of it, under the impression, as she makes
you believe, that if the ring is all it is
pretended to be the giver's oharacter is
like it The originator of that theory
has never been discovered. The disciples
are legion. , . .
The salesman in question was ap
proached by a woman of the fashion'
able world and her daughter., The lat
ter looked somewhat embarrassed, and
the experienced young man behind the
counter thought he recognized the symp
toma "I desire to get a ring for my daugh
ter," said the woman. The salesman
looked at the young lady.
"Not this one, another daughter. It
is to be a surprise. " 1
She was shown case after case of dia
mond rings, but none seemed to suit
her. Finally she said to the daughter,
"Show him yours, dear. " Blushingly
she took off her glove and slipped a
sparkling ring from her engagement
"I want to get one exaotly like that
How much will-it cost?"
The salesman looked at the ring, and
the girl watched him as bravely as she
could. He recognized it as one he had
sold to Mr. Blank a few days before.
"Isn't she crafty?" . he thought
"Well, I'll fix her this time." So he
handed ' the ring back to the daughter
" "The cost of this ring, madam was
a confidential matter between Mr. Blank
and myself. 1 We haven't another like it
in the house. I understood from his re
marks that he thought the ring would
not be valued at its intrinsic worth,
However, if you wish to know its val
ue, take it to some pawnshop and mul
tiply what they will offer you for it by
three, and you will get pretty nearly
the correct price. , -
The mother flounced out of the store
in great wrath. Her daughter followed,
almost in tears. Of course the store lost
their patronage, but the salesman said
he couldn't resist the temptation to give
them a lesson. Philadelphia Press.

Peculiar European Law.
The extraordinary announcement that
has recently appeared in the German
papers to the effect that, by virtue of a
decree obtained from the courts, Baron
Albert von Ohlendorff had disinherited
and disowned his eldest son, the Baron
Oscar von .Ohlendorff, on account of his
extravagance, habitual drunkenness and
general misconduct, ' is necessary, ac
cording ' to Teutonio law, in order to
render inoperative the claims, which
the young man would otherwise possess,
upon his parents' property. On the con
tinent of Europe parents are held to
have certain obligations, so far as prop
erty and maintenance are concerned,
toward the children whom they have
brought into the world, and disinherit
ance is only permitted when the sanc
tion of the courts has been obtained a
sanction given in such cases as ' the
above alone or where the son has be

A Confiding Candidate For Con
nubial Bliss and Cold Cash.
A SAMPLE MATRIMONIAL "AD."
A Fresh Verification of Mm Theory That the
Fools Are Not All Dead Yet "Too Pay
the Draftt 'U Do the Rest" Was the Bur
den of Her Song-. "
- The gage opinion ventured by the burnt
cork philosopher that "there is a fool born
every minute" seems to find credence with
the patrons of the matrimonial advertise
ment columns of some of our pretentious
metropolitan contemporaries. , It is evi
dently for the purpose of reducing the
supply of fools that these columns are con
ducted. The bait dangled before the eyes
of the aspirant (or matrimonial bliss Is al
ways of the most tempting description.
The advertiser Is invariably rich, healthy
and handsome and endowed with uncom
mon moral, social and intellectual quali
ties. . -;- '. ' '
That such a one should need to go beg
ging in the matrimonial market seems re
markable; that such begging should be
successful seems preposterous. Yet there
is abundant evidence that many fine gud
geons are hooked by the glittering bait of
the matrimonial advertisement. Witness
the following notice, which appeared in a
New York paper, and its sequel:
A REFINED and accomplished young Amer-
il lean lady, a good housekeeper, just com-
pleting her education in Europe, worth $40,000
and living unhappily with her guardian, wishes
to correspond with some good, true man living
in America who is matrimonially inclined; no
objection to country life; no adventurers need
answer; no attention will be paid to replies
unless the writers contemplate Immediate mat
rimony and give full name, age, present occu-
pationand state their financial standing. The
photograph of the writer must also positively
be inclosed. AddreBS Matrimonial, box 900, 403
Oxford street, London, Eng and. ,;
This tempting "ad. " caught tho hopeful
eye of a young St. Louis man, who' wrote
to the "accomplished young American
lady" and pictured himself in glowing
colors. He was literally rolling In wealth,
and all he needed was a handsome wife to
help him spend it . We have the word of
our veracious contemporary, the St." Louis
Republic, for it that be received the fol
lowing letter In reply: ' ' ' , ; ,
Carlsbad, Austria, J une 6. .
Mi Dear Friend Among the many replies
that 1 have received to my matrimonial adver
tisement signed Box 900, 403 Oxford street, Lon

answer. I do not know why, but it seems as if

My father's will left me his entire property,
with my uncle as sole trustee until I marry.
when his power over me ceases, thank God,
forever. My property consists principally of
bank stocks and railroad bonds.
Now, my uncle, who came here from London
to drink the mineral waters for his health, in
order to carry out his own selfish ends denies
me the company of all young men and con
stantly forces upon me the society of bis son, a
wretched dude, whom I despise and whom he
wishes me to marry in order to keep the money
belonging to me in the family. I would rather
kill myself than marry him, and this state of
affairs has become unbearable to me; 4-met a
lady in London who advised me to advertise
for a husband. She met her husband that way
and leads a very happy life. ,
Of the man to whom I would give my heart I
would not ask if he possessed a dollar, so long
as he was good and true and gave me his love
and attention and was willing manfully to do
his duty in that state of life in which it had
pleased God to call him. - ,
I was brought up in the Protestant faith, but
am very liberal regarding religion. I am now
20 years old and in perfect health. I am con
sidered a good pianist, and I know that I am a
good cook and housekeeper. My feelings would
never allow me to stray from the paths of rec
titude and virtue. ...-'
Having decided upon this step. 1 Intend to
carry it out to the end. I am going to put my
self absolutely In your hands. All the corre
spondence in the world would not bring us any
closer than we are now. We must meet face
to face and eye to eye. I must go to you, and
if 1 am to go I must start very soon. My uncle
after his course of treatment here is going to
Japan and Intends to take me and his son with
him. My belief is that when we meet at your
home we can come to an understanding in an
hour and be married the same day. If you are
dissatisfied with me when we meet, why, we
can part good friends. If we marry, which 1
feel is a foregone conclusion, we will force a
settlement of my estate at once.
I have been to the shipping office and learned
that It will cost me about $300 to come to you
first class. As It would be Impossible for me
to secure the money without arousing suspicion,
I will draw a draft on you today for the
amount. In the meanwhile, should my uncle
wish to start on his journey, I will feign sick
ness and compel him to wait until the money
arrives from you. I will then take the first
train for London and will telegraph you from
there what ship I will take for America.
Do not write me here, as my unole might get
the letter. Simply pay the draft; I will do the
rest. Awaiting with greatest anxiety the day
of my departure to begin a new and happier
life, I remain your loving future wife,
, - . . WXHHIB O. WOODWARD.
The letter was written on autograph
itencil paper and duplicated by the mime
ograph process. Therefore it is supposed
that many thousands of them were sent
out. Doubtless the advertiser, male or fe
male, has secured enough money from
credulous persons to enable her to pursue
her continental Journey until autumn,
when some other brilliant idea will flit
Into her head, and she will proceed to cash
It as she did this one. ; It is perfectly safe
to announce, however, that any one con
templating matrimony and awaiting the
arrival of the fair "Winnie" to oomplete
the contract had better go home and
raise another crop and then marry some i
nice American girl who has not had the
advantages of a European education,. .
