uud nlno montha ugo, have ceased to entertulu
any hopes that she will ever bo found nitre. Tho
caao is ono of tho most extraordinary among in
stances of mysterious disappearance, and will bo
of (special Interest In New York, from which
fctate Mrs. Harrington came, and where most of
ber relatives yet teniae. Have the ImrcKt allusion
at tho time, tho facts havo never been given In tho
ncwsi npers, and the Inpio of time, ns It deepens
the mystery, seems to render It all the mote inter
esting. Iulhe lint of officers who foil In tho Custer massacre
may bo found tho nsmo of Henry M. Harrington,
Becond Lieutenant of Company C, of which 1. W.
Custer was Captain. Along with bleuts. Porter
and Murgea, and Assistant Hurgoon Lord, Llent.
Harrington was reported ns mUslny, tho bodies not
baring been Identified, bat there nercr has been
tho slightest doubt that they perished with tbclr
comrades. Llent. Hsrrluston wss a uutlro.of H)r

Point from Michigan, where, at Coldwuttr, his
grandmother still resides. IIo was 0 feet In
height, athletic In build, of a clear brnnctte com
plexion, dark eyes and charming manners. Whilo
a cadet at West Point ho formed tho acoualntance
of Mlsa Grace Ilerard, of Highland Falls. Trio
llcrards belong to the military aristocracy of West
Point. They nro skin, by collateral dosccnt, to the
Marquis ile Lafayette, and, by another branch of
the ancestral tree, to Gen. Anthony Wayne. Miss
licrard's grandfather was a professor at West Point
when Gen. Grant was a cadet, and tho family Is
related by murrlago to several officers of
tho army. When Mr. Harrington gradu
ated, Miss Ilerard was regarded as his fiancee,
and tholr marrlago abortly after created no sur
prise. Young Harrington was assigned sb Becond
Lieutenant to the Bevonth Iteglment of cavalry,
under Gen. Custer, and started out with the pros
poet of a successful military career. Shortly utter
the marrlago LteuU Harrington, aocompanlod by
bis wife, joined nls regiment on tho Western fron
tier. In thoenmmorof 1876Llout. Harrington, with his
wlfo, was at West Point on leavo of absence. Then
the Indian tronbloi srew so alarming that Gen.
Custer prepared to strlko a severe blow ut tho sav
ages. It was well understood that tho campaign
would bo attended with moro than usual danger,
and Llenb Harrington was not under any obliga
tion to roturn ana iaco mat aangcr wun nis com

llut ho hastened to join Castor's troopers, then
about to advance into tho heart of the hostllo In
dian country. After tho fatal cgnt with Hitting
Hull, among tho hundreds who lay dead lu tho ra
vine, stripped and inutllatod by tho niorollcsa and
triumphant Indians, was Lieut. Harrington. Like
tnauy others on that fatal Held, his body was not
Identified, tho cruel toe havlug rendered Identluca
tlon Impossible, but that ho perished thore can bo
no moro doubt than that bis chief. Gen. Castor,
petUhed thero also. Ills namo was entcrod la tbo

Tho news was recclvod by tho young wlfo, then
also the mother of two pretty chlldron, with on
overwhelming grief that seemed to shako ber

condition with deep apprehension, llut notwith
standing tbo awful vtsltuttou and though her heart
and mind woro giving way under It, she maiutalmid
sufficient self-control to train no her children prou
crly aud to appear ou ono uotablo occaslou In pub
lie That occaslou was tho dedication of tho monu
ment to Gon. Custer at Weat Point. Mrs. Harring
ton sat in tho samo pew with Mrs, Custer lu the
chapel, attired, llku Mrs, Custer, In deep mourn
ing, and tho uppeurunco of both urouaod marked
sympathy among observers;
'I he delusion whlih grew upon Mrs. Harrington's
rulud was that her husband hud not perished; Unit
ho still lived, u captive among tho Indians. Bho
thought that he bad only been wounded In the ter
rible tight, und thut, when I lie squuwB went ubout
tuo field to llitlsh the work of tho warriors, one of
them hud been favorably lmprcHsed by the manly
lieuuly of thujoung olllcer, had spared mid saved

living cnnllve. to tlulr cuiiin. There. Mr. Ihir.
riugtou told her friends, her husband wus de
tained, aud she expressed deep anxiety to go to
the bitunts of thu Indiana and procure his rcloaso.
It should bo needless to say that thu delusion could
nut have nuy loundatlun, ns billing Hull aud his
bloodthirsty baud, who weru tho Uuders In tho
muasucrc, nave long boon prisoners, und have re
vealed all that they knew about tho struggle, llut
Mrs. Hsrrnutoii toulil not boieiisuiiedout of ber

to Intensify ber lmptcsilous and footings on the
painful subject, her trleuds concluded that a
ihungo of scenejnlght benefit ber.
MUs Mlutilu Her in d, sinter of Mrs. Harrington,
was married to Mr. Kdward Matthews, who, for
merly a cadot ut West Point, was established In
bUHiuiss at Wichita, Tex. -MtB. Harrtugtou was
Invited to visit her sister and, with the -approval
of her parents. In whose chargo sho left her chil
dren, she started for Tcxai. Mrs. Matthews re
ceived ber slater wltu the pleasure that might be
oxpeoted nudur thu circumstances, and, with hor
husband, spared no ullort to allovluto tho gloom
thut ludiseitied upon her mind. Mra. Hurrtiigtou
evidently enjoyed tho visit. One unfortuuato
event, however, throw ber back Into hor old
melancholy. The Matlhows residenoe was acci
dentally burned down. In the honso at tho time,
and dostroyed with It, was u truuk which Mrs.
Harrington had brought with her, and which con
tained her husband's uniform, bis sword and other
belongings, bho said, plaintively, utter the tiro:
The treasures I thought bo much of and kept so
long are gone. ben I bring Henry homo there
will bo Homing for me to return to him."
In the early part of lHSaMrs. Harrington was In
vited to pay a visit to u Mr. and Mra. Itotlnson, re
siding at Denton, Tex. Her subsequent courso
would seem to Indicate that about this tlmo sho de
termined to carry out a long-meditated plan for ber

a black-glazed leather satchel, such us mon aro In

It had Locil arranged that upon her retnrn thoy
should go North together to tho family home at
Highland Falls. Mrs. Harrington expressed an
Intention of ato.iplug at Dallas on hir way to

that aho bought a ticket for Fort Worth. This,
however, la uot known for a certainty. A station

How Mrs. Harrington disappeared can only bo
surmised. Did ahe leavo the train at some station
and start Into the wilderness in a vain search for
the brave husband whom sho still fondly belteved
to be among the living? And did she perish In the
truekless wilds of sturvatlou or by tbo wolves or

Long Ilrnncb People Kxclted over an AN
leffed Double llopement.
Tho residents of Long Ilrnnch ure eagerly dis
cussing what thoy aro pleased to consider a doublo
elopement, In which the allccod principals are
Frank N. Fassott and Miss llcrtle Parker and C
Edgar Luiio and Miss Jessie ltynn. In the oarly
summer Miss Hyan, who Is a pretty brunette, was
Installed as telegraph operator In ono of tho Haiti
more and Ohio offices. Bho occupied a portion of
Blocuni A lllalsdell's drug store. Among hor ear
liest acquaintances was ('. Edgar Lane, who as
sisted his father In keeping a grocery. Lane, then
a widower ot threo mouths' standing, took a
sudden Interest lu telegraphy, ana decided
to learn the art under Miss Kyan'a
Instruction. Meanwhile Frank N. Fussctt, a clerk
in the drng store, was paying devoted attention to
Mlsa Parker, who la scarcely eighteen.
Trio gossips shook tholr heads over tho affair, and
finally a sturdy young Hartford machinist, to
whom It was said MUs Purkcr had long been
engaged, visited Long Urauch and removed tho
girl to live with bts brother's family in Hartford.
Miss Parker Is an orphan and hud from childhood
been oared for by James Slocum, a well-to-do resi
dent of Long llranoh.
Fntaett, so tho etorr goes, went to Hsrtrord Nov.
7 and Induoed Miss Parker to accompany him to
thu city. A day or two lator he returned to Long
llranch aud announced that ho had married her.
Lane's attendance on Miss Hjan continued, and
Anally became bo obnoxious to tho druggists that
tbey caused that yonng lady to be removed to Har

messages over tho wire to Lane. Tho latter mado
several protracted Malts to Harlem, and soon it
was rumored that tho two wero weddod. Ho doulod
the rcort, but corroborates Fissctt'a story that MlsS
Parker wus domiciled with Miss Hyan In this city.

went with them Is unknown, but tee Long llranch
gossips arc unshaken In their opinion that they
have. MUs Hyan, it Is said, was engaged to a
New York Heamboat captain named Brandon.
Fosaett, a few ycara ago, figured In an affair
whloh caused not a littlo talk among residents of
tbo llranch. His wife eloped with the uephow of
a summer resident but subsequently returned and
besought forgiveness. The husband wus obdurate,

In tho last row ot Beats, back under the gallery,
sat Miss Fream, and her sharp oyca snapped behind
hor glasses aa Bho saw tho Itev. Wm. T. Hlslng,
nor suppressor and oppressor, as sho considers
him. filling a prominent ohalr on tho platform.
Miss Fream was one of a hnndrod gum-chowers,
and her pronouncod lower jaw, whloh wags so
vigorously In telling of her hardship, wagged
throughout the evening punishing a liberal
lump of choice Tolu gum. Sho scemod to
bo getting pleasnre from the gum's
punishment. Once or twice she glanced
ut tho reporters, but Bho was ln tho main a good
listener, and when Miss Maggie Coulter took tha
prizo she nodded her approval of tho judgo'a de
cision and langhed with everybody else at tho
quocr speech of tho quaint donor of tho prlr.es, a
Mr. DemoresL Wheu tbo singing como on Miss
Fream tucked ber gum back out or tho way and al
lowed her volco to ring ont with a vigor that
showed her liking for that exercise
Ontsldo of tho door ot tho mission two policemen
stood all the evening ready, ut a bock or call from
the lusty Janitor, to step ln and Ing off Miss Fream.
Tho minister (Sir. Klslng) Is a mild-mannered man
with a long beard. He talks In a halting f aahlon
and has won the contempt ot Miss Fream by his
want, judged by ber standard, of snap and vim In
dealing with tho rank weeds of Bin ln the mission
ary ncld about him. For twonty-Dvo years Miss
Fream, with plenty of lelsnro on her hands, and an
unlimited nmount of energy, has given up her lime
to a vigorous fight against tho Bins and misery of
tho neighborhood. Everybody knows her and she
Is everybody's friend. Bho makes tho affairs
of every poor family her affairs, and
has a practical fashion of settling family aquabblea
and taking a nanu in tne lamuy arnagery oi a Hun
dred honsoholds. It was In thut way that she waa
led to take tho part of Miss Itachael rittman.
When Miss Plttman left her home she found a
refuge with Miss Fream. Mr. Human, when he
rait hut daughter, atabbed her1n a frenzy with a
shnrp pslr ot csrpcntcr's compssseB. For this bo
will lie tried next week, and Miss Fream will be au
Important witness for the people. Thoso who
know ber ability and volubility as a talker expect a
treat whou tbo lawyer for the defense cross-examines
her. ...... ..
In the mean tlmo the trouble with her church
superior and pastor, tho Itev. William T. Elsing.
has mado ber a markod figure ln the neighborhood
of her borne. Ho first tried to tone her down, but
this ho could not do. He told her that sho was too
pronouncod lirhcr way of carrying on her evangel
ical work, and sho told him he was emphatically no
good as u missionary. Ho called in his Board of
Elders, und thoy scut a letter to Mls Fream
telling ber that they thought thev could
run the church without her assistance and
thut her presence In tbo chnrch was uot desired.
Bhe gave them to understand that aho did uot pro
pose to submit to any such ecclesiastical boycott,
and announced that Bho considered the De Witt
Memorial Chapel her chnrch homo, and proposed
continuing thcro as a worshipper, to take part in
all tho services, and not to leave It until tho
chnrch managers Invoked the strong arm of the
law to compel her to do so.
LaBt evcnlug'a was the first meeting ln the chapel
Blnco tbelssuo wasjolnol, but It was not a meet
ing In whloh she could be more than a listener.
Next bunday evonlng thero will be a general praise
meeting and there mar then be a chance for her to
talk, it la hardly likely that nny vigorous step of
suppression will then bo tried, out next Tuesday
evening wbon thiro Is a genesal prayer meeting ln
which the rostrum Is open to all for prayer and
exhortation, Miss Fream will probably take part,
and It remains to be eeen whether the elders aro
prepared to cause ths forcible oxoluaion of a
church-worker from tho chapel.
Mlsa Fream and Pastor Klslng aro very outspoken
In their comments one upon the other. Bhe de
clares be has not good common sense, snd no moro
stability than a chippy bird. He says sho Is a mag
nificent worker, but mars all her work by over
" I never oxpeoted to como here. I hoped to
find n missionary Held ln blam," complained Mr.
Klslng once In tho hearing ot Miss Fream.
" Why, ln heaven's name, didn't you got You
aro no good here," said the outspoken MUs Fream,
Aud then, la a pugnacious fashion and with a
power of mimicry which would make ber fortune
ou the stage. Miss Fream rattled on, telling how
this nnd that hlgb natron of the mission camo down
from uptown and tried to labor with her and con
vince her of her wrong course. Morris K. Jesup
was ono visitor, and Miss Fream ropeatcd bow he
told her how, as a member ot Dr. John Hall's
church, he should act, and how sharply she re
proved him, telling blm that the poor did not take
tho gospel, Uko their alma, from the rlob, and bow
Merchant Jcsap hurried away from her sharp re
proof. Meanwhile thepastor and elders aro looking for
ward to next Tuesday evening aa a season of tra
vail and vexation of spirit, while Miss Fream says
she will wear a warm wrap nud ne prepared to
spend tho night In a cell of thoDelaney street

Pblllp Durycu, the Mlsslne, Is at Last
Another night of anxiety was passed by tho
family ot tho missing Philip Duryca, of Fatrvlew,
N. J., who deserted his bride almost at thu altar
Btepa. It was a letter to his father.
I am all right," be wrote, "so do not worry
about me. I will bo homo ln a day or two. "
Ibis was the must coherent sentence In tho
whole letter, and the rest of tho doenment gave
evidence thattho writer was not alone disconnected
ln bla tboughta but In hla meaning.
Just as the family bad nnlshcd reading the mls
Blvo Miss lirown, tne bride that was to tie, entered
the pretty parlor.
" I've cot u letter from Phil, and he's still alive,"
said sho beamingly.
The members ot tho family looked Borprlaed and
then began a comparison of the notes. Tho one
received by the young woman waa as Incoherent as
waa that received by his Immediate relatives. In
neither case was there any allusion mado to tho
wedding, nor any reason given why the writer wetit
away, while not the slightest Indication was given
ot thu writer's whereabouts.
Dr. Arers, the family pdiyalclan. stated yester
day that It waa nla opinion that Duryca had be
come mentally affected, resulting from his recent
Illness and did not donbt but that tho missing man
