The marriage will be celebrated, Mrs.
Henry further said, In splto of tho

"We tire lo bo married very soon,"
said Mrs Ilcnr "Mr Joyner Is il.

that ho was lu California a year ago
with a woman win' was then under

that she wus his wife, but this I know
In bo untrue In fact, he told me
about that affair himself It Is over

Admits Being Warned.
Mrs. Henry admitted that her
friends had udvlsed her to bo cautious,
but she said she wns sattslled that all
those matters were of tho past.
When asked If sho had heard that
there was 11 supposition that Mrs Joy
ner wns living at 101 Ilerkeley Place,
,New York, Mrs Henry said It was not
true "This other woman Is now In
Portland," sho said.
I Mrs Henry acknowledges Iho truth

"Yes, Hint Is o,ulto true," sho said.
"A New York man, when lie comes lo

may depart from rcrtnln standards
which others accept Of course, there
jnre men who are. as strict In their

tho most part men are moro careless
or carefree In such matters.
