DESERTED BT HER HUSBAND,
SHE WORKS II EB WAY
To a Profitable Boslnoss by the Ex
ercise of Her Ablltie?, Expert
ence and Knowledge.
New Yoek, Beptembsr 23 The
Star publishes the following: When
the immense iron manufacturing firm
ol John V. Ayr Bona, of Chicago,
failed in February, 1882, for over a
million dollars, llerbirt Aver, the
sole surviving member, was in New
York with bis family, making prepara
tions for their customary trip to
Florida. Twenty years previously tbe
business, with it j iron mills and valu
able plant, bad been left by his
father. John V. Aver, to Herbert Ayer
and bis brother John. The latter died
In 1870. In 1860 Herbert Ayer mar
ried Msa Harriet Hubbard, a charm
ing Chicago girl. (she was tbe niece
of Gurdon Hubbard, one of the first
white settlers in Chicago, who died re
cently at the advanced age of 01 years.
Mr. Ayer derived a princely income
from the iron bnsinesi, and lived in
luxury. His house was the wonder
and pride of Chicago, and be lavished
almost fabulous sums in decking it
. with choice picture;, antique furniture
and bric-a-brac collected from all quur
teie of tbe globe.
When he broke the news of bis mis
fortune to bis wife be told her he
would have to go to Chicago on bus
ineta for several days, but would re
turn without delay as soon as tbe most
urgent details of his business affairs
were arranged. The projected Bouth
ern trip was, of course, abandoned.
Mis. Ayer and her two children took
up quartets in a mco modest hotel,
and Mr. Ayer took the train for the
West. From that day to this Mrs.
Ayer has not sot eyes on him.
She owned in hor own right a num
ber of shares of stock in the iron mills,
as well as come coal mining property,
and these she sent on t Chicago at his
request, in order to facilitate bis re
lease from his creditors. In the
couiHeofsome few months, her hus
band's return seeming to te further off
than ever, she removed to a modest
house, No. 130 West Thirteenth street.
Mr. Ayer tent her very little money,
and soon he wrote feer that he was
obliged to go to Europe. He per
suade 1 her to send him soma other se
curities which she still had, agreeing
in return to send her $500 every
month. That was in October, 1H83.
lie failed to send this, or any part of
It, and Mrs. Ayer was left to struggle
on without him. Nuw, after three
years of desertion, she has begun suit
for divorce in tbe Superior Court at
Mrs. Harriet Hubbard Ayer is a
remarkably beautiful woman, with
fairbair and complexion. Although
she is in her 38th year, not a line of
be r face shows tier t3 bs past 30.
When seen last evening by a Star re
porter, in the charmingly fitted up
narlor of her house, she was at first
disinclined to speak of her family at-. I
fairs. (She eaid sue bad no quarrel with
Mr. Ayer. and wished to say nothing
against him. lathe interest! other
children, if for no other reason, she
preferred to remain silent. After a
while (ha entered into an animated
discussion on art matters, of which she
showed much knowledge, and little by
little told hor ttory. There was not a
particle of attempt at solf praise ap
parent duriDg its recital. Bhe rather
left it to be inferred how much she bad
had to contend against. Bhe laid:
"When, after repeated disappoint
ments, the fact dawned upon me that
Mr. Ayer would not move a step
toward the fulfillment of his promise.
I was overwhelmed with despair. I
occupied a bouse, the expense of main
taining which was wretchedly trivial
comparedith my former means, but
which now seemed to be enormous. I
bad absolutely no income to look for
ward to npon which to support my
self and two daughters. Enough furni
ture and ornaments had been sent
from our Chicago house to stock our
small and modest rooms, but it did
not occur to me that I could part with
any of them. Imagine ray position.
1 bad been brought up in tbe lap of
luxury and my two lovely daughters
had been reared with tbe tastes ol
prince!H9S. I remember walking up
and down the room wringing my
bauds in despair, not knowiug in the
least whatcou'se to pursue. Then I
remembered a large art nrm on Union
Bquare through whom we had bought
many cf our treasures, and I went
there and olleied my eurviots es sides
lady. They were accepted, and 1 was
at onee in receipt of a salary which,
iudged by some standards, wss fair,
ltut I had a house on my hands, and
my children's education called for a
large outlay. From time to time la
dies of society whom I had been inti
mate with in Chicago would Bond mo
requests to act for thorn as purchasing
agent In matters of flue dress."
"I did this at an act of friendship
many scores of times, and then 1 began
to look upon it in a business light. I
thought that if su:h services were
necessary to my friends they must be
equally necessary to many ladles at a
distance, who would be willing to pay
a liberal coramiesion to anyone with
the requisite taste and knowle dge, who
could make d ecreet purchases. I de
cided to go into the business, but had
no money to pay for circulars. ' The
first sacrifice of clothing I made was a
rich cloak of rare Chinese lurs and
velvet, originally made for the Czarina
of Russia. This I sold to Clara Louise
Kellogg, and with the proceeds paid
my printer's bill. Then I disposed of
a rare piece of heavy silverware and
some valuable laces, and bought post
age stamps with the money. As the
result of this outlay I got one large or
der from a wealthy lady, which ne
cessitated a journey to Paris. After
this my patrons rapidly increased, and
I soon had a large number of wealthy
ladies from all parts of tbe United
Btatea on my list. One day it occurred
to me that if niv knowledge of har
mony of color and beauty of dosign
was valuable when applied to taste
in female dress, it ought to
be of equal service in
the decoration and furnishing
of houses. Bo many people have the
means o! furnishing their houses luxu
riantly while being ignorant of the
principles of art that 1 at once jumped
to the conclusion that 1 had a new
field before me. I bad more circulars
printed and soon got an opportunity
to display my abilities in this new
line. Little bv little I added to my
resources and incieised my circle of
patrons until now I employ over a
dozen men in carrying out my ideas.
"I have done important work in all
the large cities of the United States,
my latest etiort tiaving been the splen
did mansion of Senator Charles 11
Farwell, of Chicago. It is in the
Louis XVI style, and has been very
highly pra sod. In giving you this,
the main thread of my history, I have
forgotten some impor ant details.
During the first ytar of my lonely
struggle, just before acd just after my
eogegeiufut at the art ttoio, I tup-
ported myself partly by journalism. I
became the New York correspondent
of the Chicago Tribune. I bad always
dabbled more or less in literary mat
ters, and easily fell in with newspaper
requirements. In spiie of my activity
I found it tbe bardett thing in the
world to make both ends meet. My
house, with i's costly furniture, was a
white elephant on my bauds,
and I tried for a long lime to
let it. On Mrs. LanKtry's sec
ond visit H came to my ears
that she wanted to eecure an li ithetio
home, and I at once sat down in the
store and wrote her a note. The
same day her carnage stopped at the
store and I w ent to tue door to meet
her. Bhe went through the house as
soon ss I could get there with her,
and was delighted with it. Bhe is a
woman with the keenest appreciation
of works of art, and is po-itively un
comfortable among inharmoni us sur
rounding'. Bhe took the house for
eight months, at the end of which
time she returned t) Europe. By
that time I was rich enough to live
in the bouse myself. By the way,
Mre. Langtry will be in the city next
week and expects me to have a house
ready for her as soon as she lands.
I have been running about for the
past few days tryiDg to suit myself
and ber. I think I have fixed on the
"What reason did Mr. Ayer allege
for not returning to you?"
B"He never ga ve me a syllable of ex
planation. In our prosperous days he
was the slave of one vice, intemper
ance, but he always treated me kind
ly. I sometimes think bis misfor
tunes have turned bis brain. To tell
you the truth, I don't know what to
think. He always speaks respectfully
of me to third parlies, and has never
breathed a bint against my character,
lie has simply stayed away and seen
me struggle through the great world
for the support of our two lovely girls,
without a word of encouragement or
the slightest aid. The only object I
have in view in bringing tbetuitis
that I may see my name in business
affairs without the limitations to which
a married woman is subject. I want d
the divorce effected with the least
possible invitation to publicity, and
therefore merely a leed desertion and
abandonment. I do not believe my
husband will contest tbe suit, and ex
pect the decree to Leue as a matter of

ANARCHIST MOST'8 NEWSPAPER
Will Nuapeind Unless It Receives
New Yohk, September 24. When
Anarchist Moft wrote incendiary sr
tides for the Frrirheil tbe newspapsr
paid well and Most lived in high
stvle, but during his present enforced
sojourn in the penitentiary the articles
written by John Miller have bsen so
tame that the circulation has fallen
from 6000 to 300 copies. The office
was besieged yesterday with creditors.
Miller went to the penitentiary and
bad a serious talk with Most. Miller
returned to his office, sat pondering
over bis desk.and wrote a column edi
torial under tbe heading: "Shall the
Frtitlitil Be Supported?" Thu article
urges that the anarchists should not
give the capitalists tbe chance to
boast that the publication of the paper
was suspended for tbe lack of support,
but by smoking one cigar less, or
drinking one glass of beer less, tave
the five cent piece necessity for the
purchase of the paper. The article
closes with the threat that unless tbe
circulation speedily ic creased the pa
per will be suspendad and the anarch
ists abandoned to their fate.
lolnlnc Cutlers Strike Ended.
Nuw Yoiik, September 24. The
clothing cutters strike has come to an
end. The trouble began because
August Bros., and L.' N. Michaels &
Co. gave employment to con-union
men. A strike was ordered on these
two shops, followed by the bosses
ordering a general lock out until tbe
strike was declared off. This has now
been done and the master clothing
cutters have taken back as many
union men as they have employment
for, at the lame time refusing to dis
charge the non-union men whom
they had already employed, so that
tbe union men in many instances are
working with the "scabs." There are
still many union men going the rounds
ol the shops asking to be taken on.
