This is a story of bow persistency won
an almost hopeless battle.
Samuel T. McFherson.an employe in the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and
Mrs. Manilla Riddle, of Philadelphia, were
married last week. The groom is seven t y
trlgtit years of age, and tbe bride is said
to be forty-eight.
McPberson Is a veteran of two wars
the Mexican aud civil. When the Mexican
war was fought (he agcsl Roioeo was la
the flush or manhood, but now bis crown
is whitened by (be wilgbt of years.
The gallant lover was wounded in the
Mexican war, and lu consequence of that
receives a small pension from the govern
is said to get n salary of $84 a month
for his sere Ices in the Bureau of Engraving
He was married once, but tils wife died
about sixteen years ago, and for nearly ten
Tears of that time be has know n tliu Widow
Blddle. Her husband died about fifteen
years ago nnd left her a son, now about
seventeen years ot age. But the son bas
nothing whatever to do with tbe story
of the marriage.
The acquaintance between the widow
and the old war horse arose from tbe ac-
1 cidenial circumstance of the illness of
Mr. Mcpherson's mother. Mrs. Blddle was
called in to nurse lit r, aud during Ihe prog
ress of the patient's malady thedevotcd son
began to nurse a fondness for tlie buxom
widow, rtgardlcss of tlie fact that he had
fought, bled, and been wounded for bis
country before tlie widow was born.
WANTED TO MARRY HER.
From tbe time the old batle-scarred hero
began 10 nourish his admiration lor tbe
widow be also conceived the idea of marry
ing iier. After tbe recovery ot the patient.
It is said, the widow was installed in tbe
bouse as bousekeeper. McPberson pur
sued tlie object o( lus admiration with re
lentless vigor, and repeatly avuwed to Ler
tlie depth ex his passion.
a deal ear 10 the pleading of her ogl lover,
and successiully defended herself from his
People who know both the widow nnd
the veteran say that about a year Ego there
was a row between them, and as a result tlie
widow packed up everything in the house
aud moved to Philadelphia. On tier arrival
in (lie city oi Brotherly uive she took up tier
residence with ber slsler, at No. 1922 Botitb
Front street, and her aged admirer used to
come over with astonishing regularity,
and offer to do the lorget and forgive act
if she would only agree to marry him
and return to Washington.
'lne wioow. however, refused. She did
not care to marry film. She also said that
her Rotuci had acquired expensive tastes
and was altogether too extravagant to get
married on his present income.
On Friday, August 2, Mcpherson made
another trqt to Philadclplil.i to see the
widow, aud as soon as he arrived in the
nty he nrmed himselt with a marriage
license. With the precious document safety
placed In bis Inside pocket, the old warrior
hastened to the Imiuc- or the widow and
llien began to unfold the dream or happi
ness that bad nroiiinted bun to press bis
negoiiat1,ins for her heart and band to
Some say tiiat the widow agreed to
marry hint this time, and that they had
a little lover's quarrel on the way to the
cbnrch and that then she refused.
Others e-lami (liat Mrs. Biddle had some
views of her own on tbe subject and that
tbey were Just the opposite of those held
by Mr. MtPhersoti. Even tbe presentation
of the marriage license did not ihange her
views In any way.
After giving vent to s-ime harsh expres
sions ot the leetings that were in him Mc
Pberson pat Ihe precious certificate to
marry away lit his pocket and retraced
his Journey to Washington. Tlie next riar
Mrs. Biddle declared lu an interview that
que nuptials were off, that siralned rela
tions existed twtwecn herself and the old
"I have changed my mind," said the wid
ow, "afil that is a woman's jalvllegc.
Mr. McPberson lias wanted nie to move
here for a lone time. He onlv rets S-4,
n month and a iienslon. nnd when a woman
marries nn old man she wants one with
more money than that.
"The first time he came over to see me I
refused to see jiim nnel he wenla way angry.
The second time he saw me and insisted
that I should marry bini, and I told htm to
go away. He promised to abandon ull his
expensive habits and give me all his salary
but that was no inducement. I heard l.e

be very good. Another time he came he
pleaded with me and said he had $100 for
a wedding tour. 1 urn not want a wedding
tour. I told him that I did not lutend to
marry him, and that settled It."
The widow evidently tused her preroga
tive of changing her mind again. Tor the
next time her Romeo made application he
found that Juliet was willing.
About a week :i(io Mr. McPberson seemed
to be suffering mentally, nnd tLe clerks
decided that he was again going away to
try his fate with the widow.
He did not tell them anything about the
triii lie was contemplating. ,iud when bis
lenow-woricmen oeg.iu iiuding mm about
getting ni irrled, Mcl'lier-on told them
that the only reason hevWslied to marry the
widow was that he thought he necileda com

none of them into Ids confidence, except
the chief clerk, and so he iaekisl up htsgnp
and started out once more tote nipt fate at
the shrine of love-. He had the same old
marriage license, and in addition to all
this he was anued with the address of
several ministers in the Immediate vicinity
of bis Juliet's home.
He went up and after a very Interesting
balcony scene, Juliet consented and they
adjourned to the house of n nearby minis
ter, who mnele them one.
The newly made bride objected to spend
ing the hundred that was in the bank for a
wedding trip, and so the couple took a
train for this city and are now living on
B street southwest.

of tlie officers on duty in Washington, rep
resenting. It is claimed, a majority of tho
lineoirlcersot thenavy athomcaiidabroud,
met Saturday night and discussed tho
chances of obtaining relief from Congress.
The meeting was remarkable In view of
Ihe known wishes ot Becrelary Herbert
that navy officers shallrcfralnfrom acUvity
in their own behalf where national legis
lation Is concerned. The meeting was
called for the purpose of furthering tbe
project to relieve stagnation in the line
and make the lot of naval officers more

the Congressional committee last year hav

A resolution was adopted conveying to
Secretary Herbert Ihe appreciation of tha

' There has always been a strong fight be

line and staff orrtecrs complained that their
respective efforts were Injured by the
enmity of the other.
Set retary Herbert is not In favor of either
hue or staff officers taking prominent part
in any movement where Congress must act.
The staff officers will have several billti

MAY BE FAR EEACHLVO.
The result of the official examination ot
the Columbia's eight-inch gun, wblcb, met
witbaiKaccldentin target practice recently,
may be far reaching. If the cracking ot
the breech block was due to a flaw in the
metal, that will erd the matter, as such
defeeU will sometimes occur in the best
systems or gun-making; but should there be
no flaw, and should the weakness or the
breech block be due to the cutting of the
groove across lis face, then other blocks
win have to be supplied to all gnus above
the six-inch calibre. It is held, however,
by the Ordnance Bureau, that the slotted
screw mecnauNm liad nothing to do wttb
the fracture ot the block.
Time penalties on new ship3 will. It Is
said, be looked alter strictly hereafter. Oo
the Kearsarge and her male $75 per day
except Sundays will be due during the
first three months beyond the contract
time of three yerars; $150 per day for tha
next three, and $200 per day for the six
months following. The Department has
always been liberal In making alio wancei
for elelays not due to the contractor, anil
Congri has in repeated cases remitted
penalties after thiise allowances bad been
made. Bat it is felt that steel ship
building is now too old a story to Justify
indulgences hereafter. Again, a fixed
sum per ton will be charged against tt.e
contractor for every ton of machinery
carmsl over the 1.100 tons allowed.

Capt. Cooper, who has now been superin
tendent of thcNaval Academy about a year,
thinks (hat the results of the June examina
tions only add to the arguments in favor of
reducing the admission age to between
fifteeti ntxl seventeen years. He also
iK'lieves that no rejected candidate should
lie reaimilttcd without the recommendation
ot the academic board. Still another Im
provement, he holds, could be made by
dropping altogether tbe two years' cruise,
thus reducing the course to four years, as
in Uie colleges and at West Point. But
a striking new idea, which might be nn
otrset lo this change and help to insure the
continuation of studies. Is that, after a
cruise or three years all ensigns should bo
