AGED ROMEO LETS
GIFT SUH DROP
HAGERSTOWN. Md.. March 31.
Because Jesse M. Harden, seventy.
I the asred Romeo of Hlghfleld. failed
to appear to press his suit for $22.81
worth of presents siven to his for-J
J mer sweetheart. Miss Sophia Schnei-
! der. also of Hlghfleld, during their
recent courtship. Justice John Fergu- .
son, of Smithsburgr, dismissed the suit
against the young woman.
The little courtroom of Justice Fer
guson was packed with a curious
crowd at the time set for hearing the
case. After waiting a reasonable
time. Justice Ferguson telephoned to
Hlghfleld for Harden and was in
formed that the latter would not ap
pear. Nothing in recent years has so stir
red the pastoral quiet of the village
of Hlghfleld and its vicinity as Har
den's suit against the young woman
who was to be his wife, and the fail
ure of Harden to appear in court to
urge his claims for the presents he
had given the girl is accepted as an
other of the idiosyncrasies of the
Bottle of Dandelion Wine.
Miss Schneider was present, accom
panied by her sister. Miss Bertha
Schneider, against whom Harden also
filed a suit for f3.50 for a bottle of
dandelion wine and two phonograph
records. In a note accompanying the
statement Harden said the girl could
return the records and win (if she
had not drunk the latter). Both
Miss Schneider, the aged Beau
Brummel's sweetheart, displayed one
of the letters she had received from
Harden, in which he said it would be
bis farewell message and referred to
the "Judas kisses" she had given him.
This part of the letter reads as fol
lows: "But, oh, those Judas kisses! Wom
an, oh, woman! It has -been told me
that a woman can leadra man any
where she chooses. I now believe It,
for you have led me to the precipice
and down amongst the rocks of de
spair to moan and groan over what?
What a foolish man I was to be led
by a woman!"
Miss Schneider told of Harden call
ing on her one evening and finding
another widower present. This caller
came, to call as part .of a Joke per
petrated by some residents of the
neighborhood. Seeing he had a rival.
Harden, who got no farthar than the
door of the parlor, remarked: "Miss
Sophia, two hats can't hang on the
same peg." And he departed. Then
followed the broken engagement and
the return of the ring by Miss Schnei
der. The breaking of the love ties
appeared to worry Harden, whose age
is seventy-two years, but who Is a
Cnn of Lard One Gift.
Miss Schneider said several more
letters passed between them Until she
grew tired of the correspondence and
finally refused to answer Harden.
The bill for the presents Harden
claims to have given MJss Schneider
during their courtship of about a
year includes the following items:
Can of lard, $14.40; butter, 7 cents;
two quarts of oysters, $1.21; half doz
en herring. 60 cents; aprons, $5;
Christmas gift in cash. $20; one pair
of -hose, $1.19; Red Cross donation, $1;
cold cream and talcum powder, $1;
soap and glycerine. 50 cents; two
rabbit traps, $1; door strips, 15 cents;
doctor's bill. $2. The total value of
the presents is given as $55. -. Miss
Schneider is given credit for $32.19
for presents she returned.

NEW YORK, March 31i Seizure of
the Wilkins home at Long Beach by
the Nassau county authorities is the
latest development in the mystery of
Mrs. Wilkins' murder. District At
torney Weeks said the search of the
house has disclosed so much evidence
which will be used in the trial of Dr.
Walter K. Wilkins that he wants t'.e
Juty to see the place as It Is now.
Wilkins will be permitted to remove
his personal belongings.
Through a woman. District Attor
ney Weeks has also obtained Infor
matibn which led to an Investigation
of Dr. Wilkins' so-called "telephore
practice" of which he boasted. This.
It was stated, is in line with Investi
gation of the physician's license to
prescribe narcotic drugs.
The inquiry will be carried to sev
eral places in New Tork where the
physician had offices.
District Attorney Weeks also hs
announced that he received a state
ment from Audrey Munson, model and
moving picture actress, who, with her
mother, lived In one of the Wilkins
apartments. Her story was told to
detectives n Toronto and brought
here. Miss Audrey will come here to
testify in person.
Finger-print experts told Oistritt
Attorney Weeks that it would be un
necessary to take impressions of Mrs.
Wilkins' fingers for comparison with
marks found on the lead pipe with
which she was beaten to death.
They said it had been established
that all the finger prints on the pipe
were made by Dr. Wilkins hands. Dr.
Wilkins has said that he handled the
pipe in removing it from a spot near
his wife's body.
