Sud ?Lifo History,
i a iilllc white frame cottage on Liberty
.. ? no, near Wyckoff street, in the town of
New Lots, twenty-seven years ago, lived
13 Hart und his wife, (.'utbarino. They
I four remarkably pretty children. Three
were boys, and the other, the youngest,
Marguerite, was a beautiful littlo girl but
ighleei months old. She, of course, was
the pit of lue family.
The father of this interesting family was
a, hard-working man, and earned but small
., : ? ban ly sufficient to supply tbeneces
? ?. ? - of life, in addition to thi? he wbb al
ed with lung trouble. He was a brush
meker by trade.
Next the Halts iived ft middle aged
n Ibe name cf Edward Wilder.
: his Wild r wa9 a rich uihii. His East New
York residence he occupied only a few
in Dtfas iii summer. His winter quarters
rein .. York oily,no: far from Fifihave
: formerly had a btilchbr stand in
Washington Market, where, after yearn of
patient lahor,?he amassed a competence. He
then retired from business. Some lucky in
. . ants in real (state um de him a million?
Mr. Wilder, although passionately fond of
hildi en, had tio little ones of his own. He
often called upon the Hart family, and ad
u ired the little Marguerite. Ho had noticed
the struggles of the bead of the famiiy to
keep the wolf from the door, and observed
. i h Borrow that the poor man's strength
.. unequal-to the tasks imposed tipou it.
The baby antics of Iho little Marguerite had
aUo worked upon his afJoclious, and e
great love for the little one arose in his
()..:? day Mr. Hart returned from his work
body and mind. Destitution stared
him in Ibe face. His rich neighbor's eympa
was arouf ed, and, calling upon Mr. Wil
the latter made a propoeition to him.
ii: stated bow bo had become attached to
little Marguerite, how ho bad noticed their
in umstauces, and wound up by oll'sring to
adopt the little one.
The poor man could not bring himself at
r?m ? to let the child go, and asked for time
1 consider the matter. Lut Mr. Wilder had
hit heart upon gaining possession of the
? Ii one, and otlered to settle an annuity
upon the boys if hi:? proposition was accept?
ed, i to also oll'ered to divide between t tie
boys a valuable plot of land lying in the
northern part of New York Stale. He slip*
u oted that when ho should onct> have poa
session of the child it should never again be
r< claimed by its parents under any circum
stances, and that Marguerite should never
be made'acquainted with the fact that he
was other than her own father. Quite an
allcCling scene endued. Tho parents did
not want to let the child go but at last
come u: the conclusion that it was the best
thing under tbe circumstances, and gave the
chilli into Mr. Wilder's keopiug.
Mr. Wilder immediately took Ma'-gueiite
to his New York establishment, aud she
urew up to ho a very beautiful young worn
an, admired by all. She was o! tho blonde
ty;.o, \\i:ii deep blue eyes and golden hair,
arid skin liko alabaster. Her ligure was
Buperb, She was the belle of her set, aud
many were her suitors. Hut she had not as
yet met her affinity.
In (ho summer of 1883 her father took her
to Newport, where she was the acknowl
edged belie. It was generally known that
she wns an heiress, and that, with her
beauty, brought many suitors to her feet.
Among them was a handsome lieutenant of
the United States navy. He was a young
man with many virtues, and but few faults.
He was a frequent attendant at divine ser
Vioes. Thoy met at the church. A mutual
reciprocation spraug up between the young
people, and they were often seen upon tbe
-.amis df Newport enjoying one another's
society. Thoy were a baudeome couple,
admired by all, but euvied by none. Socie?
ty began to whisper that it was a match. J
Society lor once was right. The friendship
of the young couple.iu course of time ri?
pened into a warmer feeling, and one beau
iifui moonlight night the young man rose
to the occasion, and the inevitable "propo?
sal" was made. Marguerite had been ex?
pecting this for some lime, but, like a duti?
ful daughter, asked for time to consider ber
answer, and in the inenulitxa referred the
whole matter to her father. Her reasons
for so doing were that she was an heiress
and he was comparatively poor. People
would look upon this as a mesalliance. She
was not sure but that her supposed father
Mr. Wilder listened attentively to Mar
guerito'a story, and at tho conclusion be
smiled, and, clasping her to his bosom,
kwsedber, at the same lime assuring her
sbat if be found tbe young man'd character
and antecedents to be satisfactory, bis pov
erty need be no bar to tbe consummation of
Thai same day Mr. Wilder went out and
did not return until late. Ho appeared
to beMepressed, and went to bed without
saying a word. Tau next day at the break
fa?', tab'e !..; proposed to bis little family
thul Ibey lake a trip to F.urope. Mar?
guerite bad noticed his altered manner, and
when viiis proposition was made she under
stood i; as meaning that ner father would
not give his consent to her marriage, and
ber heart tailed her for the moment. There
was sometbjng wrong. She asked him for
bis a ob wer, Mr. Wilder evaded her ques?
tionings ?s i. ug as be c u d, bui. when she
stated tbat ii she did not his consent to
(heir union -: ? w-nld Iimv?? her supposed
: ' o in her lover, the old man
was oblig ed to divulge ;hc seurai of yea re,
and informed her tbnt the man sbo loved
was her own brother, Frederick Hart.
The poor girl fiinted. When Fho came
to the was delirious. Sho was removed to
her bed, where she remained for several
weeks, and when she arose it was seen that
her brain was seriously effected. He-r
lover's name was constantly on her lips.
When Mr. Wilder started nut to inquire
into the young man's character, and found
that he was none other than bi3 ?donted
daughter's own brother, Fred Hart, be was
btunned. Tho young man was made ac?
quainted with the met of bin relationship,
and took it to heart. A few Says afterward
his body wes found in the river.
After Marguerite bad recovered sufficient?
ly to bear the news, her adopted parents
lold ber of tho death of her lover. Hio be?
came affected with meipneboly, and has
gradually grown worse, until now it is
thought necessary to place her in some in?
stitution where ehe will receive proper
treatment, and possible recover.
With that end in view, ?.Ir. Wilder visited
a woll-kuown roetlica! expert in this city
yesterday, and arraugements were made for
placing her in a private institution in this
