Last week society was thrown into a
state of delirious excitement when it
became rumored that Henry Forte had
deserted his wife and gone to his moth
er's home in Cincinnati. It now appears
that Mr. Foote has not gone to stay but
just went down to the Queen City to see
the great Centennial and rest from his
arduous labors here Chicago. An
APPEAL reporter was told by a lady
shortly after h's arrival in Porkopolis,
concerning his unceremonious leave
taking. said I have always tried
to do my duty as a husband. My sal
ary was small ($11 per week,) hence it
was impossible for me to support my
wife according to her high-falutin' ideas.

You must read the APPEAL to be well seem to appreciate mv efforts. I have
not deserted her and intend to return.

and for needed rest." It may be that
Mr. Forte has already returned
The Chicago gossips have a delicious
morsel to roll under their tongues, and
many have spent hours talking the mat
ter over. One lady reports that Mrs.
Forte said she was glad Henry had gone
and that she would immediately sue for
divorce. She siidhewas lazy aud did
uot want to woik.
Another lady said Mrs. Forte would
go to church, calling, etc., and not allow
her husband to accompany her.
One lady said that Henry gave his
wife every cent he earned, and another,
said that he only paid $10 per month on
the house rent, the rest of the expenses
being borne by Mrs. Forte's mother and
This is the third time Mr. Forte has
left his home. The second time he left
he went to his auut's Mrs. J. H, Magee's
and stayed a few days. Then he le
turned and tremblingly said "forgive
me, Hattie." He was forgiven and tak
en back to his wife's heart.
All sorts of absurd rumors are in cir
culation. One lady said a few months
ago "No grass widow shall ever come to
my house," but the same lady has been
very attentive to Mrs. Forte since the
loss of her husband.
Mrs. Forte is a very pretty woman
with charming manners and has le
ceived the sympathy of her many fi lends
which includes nearly all the society la
dies. Her house has been, crowded with
visitors since her husbands flight. If
she gets a divorce the ladies will, of
course send "divorce congratulation
cards." It's the latest fad, you know.

cranky if another man looked at her

A. Fathe Wh Knows His Child.
The APPEAL man was a little late get
ting to Olivet church Sundav and as he
arrived Bro. Watson of the Deacon
Board was reading his report in a whis
per. "Why don't you read louder?"
yelled Bro. Clark, the rear of the
church. "Well, Brothers and Sisters,
Cm afraid that APPEAL man will hear
me." "There's no use trym' to keep
the 'Repeal' from hearin'," said an aged
sister, "they'll know it anyway." "Give
it to me and I'll read it loud enough for
everyoneto hear," said Rev. Thomas.
The good brother Watson then finished
his report in an audible tone.
The case of Smith vs. Smith was then
called. Mr. and Mrs. Smith had a little
split up and she had him arrested. She
said she was justified, though it was
wrong and she knew it. She went to
the Lord and prayed over the matter.
She felt the Lord had forgiven her and
she hoped the church would do the
same. Bro. Smith was asked to give
his side of the story and said. "Broth
er Moderator, my dear, sweet wife bad
She's my dearly beloved,
O, how I love her. I wanted to move
on the West side to get her away from
some women she associated with. She
claimed I had no place to go to." After
fumbling aiound in his pocket a few
moments Bro. smith fished out a card
and proceeded, "Here's a card from a
law) er showing I have rented a house.
Any time you bear that Mr. H. P. Smith
is going to move his dear, sweet wife,
you can bet your bottom dollar he's got a
place to take her. The trouble is she is
in love with some women and she should
have married them instead of me. She
had me arrested, and swore she was
afraid of me. She's got a child by me.
Do you call that afraid of me? I know
its my child. I remember the very
minute the thing occurred. You ought
to have seen how she "went on" that
night and you'd all say she's not afraid
During this recital Mrs. Smith blushed
and asked to be excused, but Brother
Peyton objected, and Mrs. Smith was
compelled to hear it all. The Smiths
finally agreed to speak as they pass by,
and the church foigave them.
Brother Coffee sat in the Amen cor
ner surrounded by Sisters and kept
very quiet. Some other business was
transacted and the meeting adjourned.
