Nothing now know n to the world does this so

A Story of n Yimne Man nnd Ills
Hero Is ti nupllal story that shows how
hard It is when romatico faces slum real
ity. A certain hnndsomo young man in
n far off foreign land, connected with a
banking house, became acquainted with
:i Philadelphia Indy who transacted Botno
money matters llicru. Ho fell In lovo
with tho heiress ami showed his ardor by
traveling lonjr illstnnces to bo near her.
She returned to I'lilliidelnlitn, ho fol
lowed, wns accepted, and thuy wuro mar
ried. Hut the young man, with the eco
nomic Ideas of his fatherland, found that
a fashlonablo wedding lu this land of ex
travngancu was a more expensive matter
than hu had imagined. Tho arrange
ments wcro no sooner well under wny
than ho dlscovereel that it would cost llvo
or ten times as much to bo married In
stvlo hero as It would at home. Ho did
tint mltul tho passago over of his best
man nnd relatives, but tho estimates for
the caterer, thu llorist nnd so on, wcro
what went against his grain.
Every move, ho found, cost enormously
hero, nhtl in vain ho tried to ledttco tho
Impending outlay. As it had been given
out tlint ho was rich, ho had assumed ns
his sharo of tho wedding arrangements
giving a reception and supper after the
ceremony. It also became apparent that
the lady's fortune was not largo. Tho
question of remittances becumo im
portant to tho bridegroom, Jinny weeks
have now passed since tho wedding fes
tivities, and tho bridegroom is unxlously
sought for, though his whereabouts are
nt present unknown. Florists, musicians,
wlno men and various others who con
tributed to tho joy of that uuplial feast
are all In a state of anxiety, wondering If
tho luldegroom will turn up, or if his
remittances nro on tho wny. Phila
