First is tho tnlo of Miss Williamana Consta

resided in this city.
Whilo hero sho mado tho acquaintance of a
man who represented himself as Baron F. E.

and a commission in tho German army.
He evidently thought that bocuuso of hor

that Miss Constable's means wero limited anil
then ho left hor.
Sho followed him to London and thero dis
covered that thero was no ono by tho namo of
Sucrow connected with tho German nobility
or army. Consequently tho lady is now hitr.
