The Two Marthens.
Exact similarity of names between t wo
individuals who are not related in any
way is generally cause for considerable
amnsement to those who know of it, but
Anson Marthen, civil engineer and rail
way builder, whose headquarters were
in Now York, suffered more or less nearly
every day of his life for the reason that
there was another man of exactly the
same name who also lived in Now York,
but had no business or profession what
ever. The men were unlike in almost
every particular, except that both were
bachelors and fond of ladies. Anson
Marthen, the engineer, earned a pleasing
number of dollars every year, and always
paid his bills as soon as they were pre
sented; his nominal double never earned
a penny and never paid a bill when he
could avoid it, and as his peculiarity hacl
become prominent enough to be talked
about, it occasionally subjected the
honest Marthen to exasperaiing indig
nities from persons who know itho name,
but not the men who bore it. The dis
honest Marthen, on the contrary, cot all
necessary credit at tailors' shops, livery
stables, and even hotels whore the exist
enco of the two Marthons was not known;
he had merely to devise some excuse to
talk of railroad and engineering to be
taken for his entirely reputable double.
His bills, in the course of time, reached
the engineer's office, and were the cause
of much profane language from the
wrong Marthen and much fun among the
two or three clerks and draughtmeu
whom the busy railroad builder em
Worse still, the honest Marthen waf
sometimes chillingly received by personm
to whom he was introduced and whc
had heard of the other bearer of th
same name. Worst of all, ladies some.
times seemed disappointed when he war
presented to them, for his rascall3
double was handsome enough to h<
talked about, while the engineer, al.
though of perfect manner, unfortunately
had rugged and disproportionato foa
tures. When, finally, he was arrested
one afternoon on a charge of obtaining
goods under false pretenses, the 'omi
plainant being the father cf a lady to
whom lie had just b)een presented, and
the oflicers catching him as lie emerged
from her house, the lady herself behold
ing the affair from a window, ho went in
his wrath to his lawyer and prep)ared a
petition to the Liegislature, that for
reasons already stated in this story, he
might be permitted to assume his
mother's fammily name as a middle name.
But even this relief lie could not ex
pect, until more than half a year later,
for the arrest occurred in Jane and thme
Legislature would not meet again until
January. One thing, however, lie could
and would do; ho would manage to see
his troublesome double so that he might
afterward know him by sight and defend
himself against him whenever he found
himself in close social or business prox.
tmity to thme rascal. To find the dishonesi
Marthen was no easy task; it required c
fortnight's effort on the part of two dif
ferent detectives, but at last Marthem
was informed that the man whlo live<
upon the engineer's reputation was a
Saratoga, so the indignant man hastil,
p)ackedI his trunk and hurriied off to thu
On the traini ho chanced to find a pica
sant and entirely innocent traveling ace
quaintance. A well-dressed, nmot un
comely lady who sat in front of him eji
deavored1 to raise a window and Marthiem
hastened to assist her, getting a p)leasantl
smile and a word of thanks in payment.
Marthoen skillfully involved the lady in
conversation, and fiding, to his great
delight, that she was amiable but not
smart, quite susceptible, yet not in
chined to flirt, lie became very devoted.
He detested smart women; several of his
friends had nrrried such beings and
niever ceased to regret the step; smart
women had of ton tried to "catch" Mar
then himself, for an ineome of a thou
sand a month was not to bo despised, andi
he had not always escaped with ease.
Marthen fully intended to marry some
day, but ho had been determined that lhe
would be entirely satisfied with a plain,
rather stupid woman if only he couIhi
find one who was amiable.
The trip to Saratoga consumed six
hours when Marthen first made it; nd
as one-sixth of this time has often been.
enffieient to the birth of violent admira
ions of men for women, it is not remark
%ble that when the journey ended Mar.
hhan was so favorably impressed by hii
new~V acquaintance that he regretted, omn
leaving the train, that he had not strainiet
his habitual courtesy enough to lear'
her name, and ask the honor of bein,.
again allowed to meet her, for she bnii
let drop the fact that she was a widow
Awas now too late to do this, but mno
I oo late to hopo; he wassure of findint
friends at Saratoga; he could hardly hel,
seeing her somewhere, somehow, if b~
remained, for she had intimated that sh~
expected to spend a month with some rel
atives; his profession consisted in thec
work of ovoroomia o)b.taoia. so e fel
sure he would -mhakg his way again to
riho side of tiffs pleasant little ladf,. and
His rever!a and resolution were ime. -
rupted as he signed the hotel register
for when the clerk tead the signature
hat official winked at rather a rough.
looking man with whom he had beer
talking, then the rough-looking man read
the signature and exclaimed:
"You're just the man I'm looking for,
"r. Marthen-I've only just been able
to find out whexo you were stopping
can't, you give me a check for this carriag
hill ? its heen running nearly a month,
ind the boys said you-"
"I'm not the man you want," still
lMarthen, first saying somethiig that
would not look well in print.
''Your name is"
"Yes, yes, yes," interrupted Martin;
"bit there is another man of the sans
namne and hoi a swindler. I came her
to run bini' ?lown; I've got detectiv ":
after 'ii; come hero this evening an,
they will put you on his track."
For an hour or more Marthen was ii
very bad temper, but he grew caline
when, strolling out tb look at the crowo:
of carriages and their occupants, he met
several acquaintances who had tempor
arily abjured billiards or flirting for th(
same purpose. As he chatted with on
of these a carriage passed slowly and
Mairthen saw in it the amiable litth
widow he had met on the train in the
morning. She did not seem to recognize
liim, but his friend raised his hat and
Wias smiled upon.
1:Who is she, Jenks ?-tell me, quick."
"She's Mrs. Whitlayton, widow of Will
Wlitlayton, who was just starting to
make a fortuno in wool when, a couple
of years ago, lie took pneumonia and
died. He left her twenty or thirty thou
anid dollars, though-enough to inake
lazy, well-dressed fellows swarm around
her like flies around a sugar barrel."
"Has she any family ?" asked Marthen.
"No; she makes her home with. an
iniele and aunt whom sie doesn't love
ally too well, I'm told. A young widow
must have a home, though, you know,
if she doesn't want to he talked about.
