Oh. just turned oft the heat In the fur
nace. Cards have reached this city announcing
the marriape of Mr. Ieon V Heuser to
Hiss Jfancy Maj Scott, at Farnissus. Pa.
Mr. Heuser has many friends in St Louis,
who will he gristed to learn that he v. Ill

Soeietv Is indulging in considerable specu
lation concerning the matrimonial Intention-
wf a West Helle place girl who last spring
quietly told her Intimate friends that she
expected to marry a medical man ixom
Kari'ai CIt The engagement had no
Xormal announcement, I believe, though her
aunt did gi've a sweet-pea luncheon In her
honcr. B.'t the news had already been told
fcefore the function.
At all oei.ts this summer a certain good
looking juung banker has ben courting the
lady moi-t industriously, and the Kans.n
City doctor's chances are lessening day b
daj. Indeed. I louM if he has a show at
ah. for I pre the banker and the girl to
Kethr cver.vuhtie. and they wear an air of
unmistakable devotion that Is as far fnjn
anj thing platonlc as this tcrrestial sphere
Is from the Borelll comet.
I should net ha in the least surprised to
see some re-atly engraved wedding cards,
relative to this affair, by Sptemhr 21. The
Karsas City medical gentleman's name will
not be therein, of that jou may be sure.
While on this interesting topic o' cngnce
ments I am reminded of anothc- afialr
du coeur. which has not .-o far progressed
smoothly. That is the lady and gentleman
nre all right in their knowledge of and mu
tual trust In each uthci. but thcr." Ii tho
old. but ncverth.-less unpleasant, parental
objection. The girl Is a petite ind very
pretty South Side miss, thoush not Teutonic
.in her ancestry. Tho man also live? on the
South Side, and they have -o far ben
obliged lo conduct their courtship unur
very difficult circumstances tir papa and
mamma, the girl's parent, are. to be
sangy. "deid set agalnt" their daughter
marrying any rtil a wealthy m-n.
The man In question Is In modest, but by
no means Impoveilshed. circumstance-, and
will be able by fall to lit un .1 s.vali fiat
ery cozlly, and keep the refrigerator full,
I don't predict an elopement, for they nre
both far loo sensible for that. 1 rather
hink that papa and mamma will be won
over by October Let us hope so.
