"May I ask," 1 sail, "if you are in pos

hands of her lawyer, Mr. Gardner, of tho

Mrs. Wetmoro, and in no less than seven
of them ho declared that ho would marry
her; tho moment she got tho divorce from
her husband. I have even in mv no-wes-

Lady Albort Clinton then continued:!

And in the letter to which I mive just re

and viitf no more than one letter to hun.
To iuis she wrote a reply of almost touch

"Remember," she said, "all I have lost

prosper you and yours, when you are ca

another passage sho says:
"Can it be possible that you have a

permanently separating herself from her
husband, o(' whom sho always spoko with
remorse, but Lord Anglesey turned ner

a divorce This took so much time that
ho got tired of his bargain and deserted
her as booh as sho had broken loose from
tho only real tie which bound her to life
affection for her child. . Sho was a hand

A special to a St. Louis paper from
Leadville, dated the 29th ult.. says. Rev.
De AVitt Talmago last evening repeated
in Leadville his astonishing performances
in New York a year or so ago, making a
personal inspection of the slums and by-

night before last, Mr. Talmage and his
wife were temporarily assigned a room on
the first floor of the Clarendon, from
which tho clerk yesterday offered to
change them to an especial apartment
near the parlor, usually occupied by Gov.
Pitkin and like distinguished guests. Mr.
Talmage inspected the apartment and
and said to tho porter: "I guess we will
take both rooms; wo arc nervous from the
effects of our trip, and I do not care to dis
turb Mrs. Talmage." So Mrs. Talmage
kept the first room, while Mr. Talmage
took possession of the other. No one sus
pected that the preacher was preparing
for his second great nocturnal pilgrimage
among the slums. Last evening he lec
tured at the City hall on "Big Blunders."
It win 10:30 when he dismissed his au
dience, and was rapidly driven to the ho
tel. Half an hour was spent in preparing
for the work before him, and Mr. Tal
mage was ready to set out. With a soli
tary companion to guide him, the preach
er quit the hotel about 11 o'clock, and
entered Harrison avenue, which at that
hour is always filled with a busy crowd
of people, engaged on various errands,
mronging tne siuewaiKs and elbowing
each other in a ceaseless tide. They
crossed the street and stopped in front of
the BjjuJ of Trade saloon, without i.r.tii-

masterly skill. The only fear h that vfe
have got so far away that we will grow
hungry for the ponderous amplification
that has been banished. Superfluous and
cumbrous as those long and ornate sen
tences were there was a charm, a zest in
them sometimes, which makes one turn
from the metallic epigrammatic blaze of
the present, and long for a breeze from
their flowery pages. How they soared and
swayed and swung among the very heavens
of philology; obscurity was their strong
point. They muflled thought, concealed
ideas, and befogged everything. But they
were often charming. What excitement
it whs to hunt down an idea through an
undergrowth of weary adjectives and
bristling phrases? Now, ideas are set
down so nearly naked of words that a
moral writer of half a century ago woukv
hide his face and run away from them as
tiom something lunnouesc. rnuoiqgyia
progressive. Itkeeps pace with the times.
This rushing ape demanded a literary stylo
that presented ideas unadorned, and in a,
striking rather than imposing attitude,
and the demand wa recognized and sup
plied. Sentcmf'S are pared down until
they have a famished look. Bret TIarte
was the fint writer of fiction to act on the
discovery that a suggestion was more
forceful than an assertion. It leaves some
thing for the imagination to fill, and by
this means increase it own strength.
The gi eat r nds achieved -y the shorn style
of composition now in la vor is the rest jt
gives to those beasts of burden, the adjec
tives. There is something fiendish in tho
nature of adjectives. They are constantly
on the alert to edge themselves in. They
come in the most alluring guise, and as
sume the mildest manners; but their r?al
intent is to cripple a writer and ruin his
style, and they always succeed; and if
they can pnlm themselves off for r.ouns
they die as happy as a fly who succeeds in
being mistaken for a huckleberry and gets
baked in a pie. One ot the most focey

The deceased was a lady of refinec" and
pleasing manners. Sho was of me-lium
height, with dark eyes and hair. Her
features had something of the Jewish cast,
and she was graceful and attractive, with
especially pretty hands and feet, and her
figure was faultless. She was kind and
