A young man of Carbonate, Dak... thought
that he'd be smart, aud ?o began a corre?
spondence with a foolish young woman in
the East whom he had never seen. She
wanted his photograph, and he sent her
that of a hotel keeper of the place. She
was eo pleased with it that she agreed to go
to Dakota and marry her correspondent.
She started alone, and arrived at Carbonate
the other day; but the young man had fled.
The paper that reports the occurteuce say.'-:
'"The situation is very embarrassing for the
lady. The hotel man would marry her
wcra ho not engaged to another girl."
