York, and to have an Income of K0.009 a
year. The affair occurred on July 2.
On the evening of that day a. couple ap
peared before the Reverend Doctor Rad
cliffe, pastor of the New York Avenue
Presbyterian Church, and said they desired
to Ret married. The man, who said his
namn was Frank Mitchell, showed Doctor
Radclirre a marriage license made out In
due form, and the minister, after calling
two of his household as witnesses, pro
ceeded with the ceremona.
Startled the Minister.
He then read a portion of the ceremony
when he noticed that Hiss Van "Wyck was
very nervous, and, when he asked the
Question: "Do you take thla man to be your
lawful wedded husbandT' he was much as
tonished when the prospective bride
promptly anTRered: "No, I don't."
TVhy not?" asked Doctor Radcllffe.
Recaue." Miss Van "Wyck answered,
"this Is too serious. I've cot to think 't
Mitchell endeavored to persuade Miss
Van Wyck to continue with the ceremony,
but she flatly refused to do so. and.- aftar
more entreaties, which likewise proved of
no nvail. Miss Van Wyck Is said to have
turned to Mr. Radcllffe and astonished hlra
suggesting that the three "go down and
have a good supper and forget all this
Doctor Radcllffe. when seen to-day, re
fused to discuss the matter, saying that
he had hoped to suppress nil mention of the
affair. He admitted, however, that a pair
giving the names mentioned above had
called on him to get married on the even
ing of July 2. but had left without hiving
tho knot tied. He refused to go Into de
tails. Cleric Una Left Ills Flace.
Inqulrv at the Southern Railway office de
veloped "the fact that Frank Mitchell, who
had oeen employed for some time In the
car department at a small salary, obtained
leave of absence about ten days ago, with
the expressed Intention of getting married.
He Is said to have told several of his fel-!iw-c!erks
that ho was going to marry a
lery rich girl and that he did not Intend
to work any more.
Tho marrlnge license appears on the
books In the Clerk's office made out In the
names of Frank P. Mitchell, age I. and

Wyck's residence is given as Washington.
She spent the winter here with her mother
at the Hotel Normandle.
Miss Van Wyck Is known to her friends
and Intimates In Washington as "Happy."
.because of her good humor and unflagging
high spirits. Miss Van Wyck left Washing

SEVERE TEST ROR
OIL AS ,A FUEL,
Ship Will Travel Over Seven Thou
sand Hiles as a (Crucial
NAVY DEPARTMENT INTERESTED
On the Result of the Journey De
pends the Future of Petroleum
as a Fuel for War
Wa-"hIngton. July 11. To observe themojt
thorough test of oil as naval fuel evur at
tempted. Lieutenant Ward P. WInche B, U.
S. N.. has been ordered detached front the
Boston, at San Francisco, and will board
the Oceanic Steamship Company's stetuner
Mariposa, for a cruise to Tahiti, SovJety
Islands. The Mariposa will burn only oil
during this trip, which will be 7.3M miloj
in length. The result of the experiment villi
mean much to the future of englneerlif&
Rear Admiral Melville. Chief of the Bu
reau of Steam Engineering, takes great In
terest In the experiment, and feels that fhe
best way to gain a thorough comprehension
of the value of oil as fuel la to give it tho.
service trial now contemplated. He desires
iu uu o mm a warsmp.
Ever since the Navy Department began
experiments to aicertain the value of o.l
fuel, as compared with coal, the officers of
the Bureau of Steam Engineering, especial
ly Lieutenant Commander John R. Ed
wards, who has the experiments In charae
and who gained valuable results, have been
flooded with letters of Inquiry from sh'p
owners on the Pacific Coast, where oil is
so much cheaper than coal, as to make it
a far mora desirable fuel.
Mr. John D. Spreckrls. president of the
Oceanic Steamship Company, notified Ad
miral Melville of his experiment with ihe
Mariposa, a vessel of 6.50O horse-power and
capacity for 6,500 barrels of crude oil.
The trial of the Mariposa equipped with,
an oil plant was made for July 4. and wai
successful. Engineer H. N. Stevens. United
States Navy, witnessed the trial. A crule
to Tahiti was then planned. The Mariposa's
plant consists of an automatic feeder from
which the oil streams into the fire box,
where Are bricks are loosely piled In the
place of the ordinary grating. As the oil
streams downward. It Is struck by a spray,
either of compressed air or steam and dis
tributed over the fire bricks and throughout
the fire box. After a certain amount of
combustion, the bricks become Incandescent.
The fitting out of the Mariposa shows the
Interest ship owners on the Pacific Coast
take In the problem of oil fuel. The naval
aspect of the problem Is somewhat more
difficult of solution than the merchant mar
ine on account of the difficulty in finding
space for the auxiliaries required in operat
ing' the oil fuel plant. The question of
weight must also be given consideration On
board the warship, where various powders
are used, where there Is a large crew an!
where extensive cooking galleys are neces
sary', the safe stowage of the oil will provo
a difficult point to overcome.
There Is no subject of greater Interest now
before Admiral Melville and he hope.bfore
turning his office of Chief of tho Bureau of
Steam Engineering over to a successor, to
have obtained reliable and complete data of
military and commercial value.

Chicago. July IL "If you arc able to buy
twenty" barrels of flour, and need a husband
to help get it around, I'm ready to become
an aspirant for your hand, and will do my

Hugh McG'C. business agent of the Truck

reception. He now declares that a tele

all over he refused to tell her name.
Some of the members of the union, who
were at the headquarters cf the organlru

manner of "popping the question" and not
the telephone was responsible for his fail
ure, but the labor leader declared that he
would have had a 'different answer If he
had not made love over the telephone.
McGee had never seen the woman to
whom he offered his heart and hand and
did not know of her existence until sh

of the action) of a member of the Truck
