ard Clinic to This City Yesterday lo
llnvo Him lllglit tho Wrong Ho Did
Hrr-'IIcr Husband Kilted Last
One of the Felton burglars, James
J. Rellly, Is going to be married. In
fact, he would have been mnrrled yes
terday but for his being under age and
minus the consent of his parents.
Yesterday afternoon n young wo
man with nn elghteen-months-old child
In her arms nnd about to become a
mother Boon again, came to the .sheriff's
ofllce In company with a nilddle-nged
man, a relative. To Deputy Frank
Ryan she stated that her name was
Mrs. Laura D. Leonard, nnd that she
has been a widow Blnce Jan. 9, last,
when her husband was killed In a
wreck on tho Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western road near Blnghnmton.
Soon nfter her bereavement she met
nnd became Intimate with Jlmmle
Rellly, who was then a brnkoman, liv
ing at Blnghnmton. She Is 21 and he
l.s 20, lucking his majority by four
months. Their friendship continued '
when she returned to her mother's ;
home in Sweet Valley, Ross township, '
Luzeine county. He visited her occa-
sionnlly and wrote to her frequently,
receiving letters In return, the corre- I
spondence on both sides being of the I
most "thine owncst " character.
ARRESTED IN NANTICOKE.
Jlniinle wa.s arrested In Nantlcoke
last October for being Implicated In the
burglary of Felton's cutlery store, cor
ner of Spruce street ntid Penn avenue.
He was committed to the county Jail
and Is still there awaiting trial.
Duiing the two months and more
that he has been in prison the corre
spondence between himself nnd his
young widow sweetheart has continued
utiabiitcd.'A love marriage would .sure
ly eventuate, but circumstances arose
which made nnother kind of nuptials
expedient. This wns the young wo
man's en nnd yesterday.
Sheriff Clemons was consulted and
after thinking the matter over, con
cluded he would bo doing no great
wrong If he allowed the prisoner to
come out of confinement long enough
to get married. To do n great right,
do a little wrong, reasoned the sheriff,
and the consent was given.
Warden Simpson was telephoned to
nnd half an hour later he appeared
with the boy burglar brld 'gloom. The
whole party repaired to tho clerk of
the court's olllce and held a confer
ence. Rellly was willing and the usual
questions wore put by Clerk Mlrtz.
When the item of age was readied
there came a pause. Rellly could not
make himself out to be twenty-one.
REILLY IS WILLING.
"Well, get my folks' consent and I'll
marry her," said Rellly. A blank pre
pared for this purpo.se was enclosed In
nn envelope with a note explaining
the circumstances and the whole mailed
to the boy's parents In Binghamton,
Mr. and Mrs. Jnmes Rellly, Deputy
Ryan acting ns secretary and furnish
ing the writing material and stamp.
The liantlcu Ts were placed on the
pi Isoner's w list.s and he was taken
back to Jail. His would-be bride, with
her friend, started olf with the inten
tion of going to Blnghnmton, to wait
upon Hip Relllys nnd Insure the secur
ing of the required consent.

THE SAFE IS ALL RIGHT.
Hut tho Cvpnrts Are Not Able to
Jonas Long's Sons n week ago pur
chased for their department store a
safe which proved too good for the
money It cost. It refused to be un
locked by even those who thought they
possessed the combination.
E. F. Roth, 6f Wllkes-Rarre. was
summoned to try his sleight-of-hand
and failed. The manufacturers then
sent an expert snfe-cracker, but his
manipulations were in vain. It was
the liurglar-proof vault Insldo tho safe
proper which refused to be opened.
The expert has tried his arts for near
ly a week and it Is feared the safe will
have to be returned to tho manufac
turers and opened by force.
