Whereas, Said contract so published
as authentic and genuine was tho basis
for charges and suggestions and insin
uations that the said members and
senators whose names appear on said
alleged contract entered into unlawful

Now we have the truth on't. Miss
Caldwell, who hanketed-for a coronet
and a title as a thousand times more
desirable than a Yankee millionaire as
a husband, but was unluckily balked in
her wishes, bobs up with an o'er true
tale of the whole course of her wooing
of "Prince Murah." She brands as a
monstrous fabrication the story that
she offered the prince $10,000 a year as
spending money. Such paltry mattets
were never mentioned by either party
until at their last conversation. They
never so tar forgot tbe proprieties as
to mix sentiment with the mercenary
in that boorish fashion. No sirree! She
made love to him in "honorable f h-
ion," and he was gentleman enough to
permit her to do so. That was very
kind of the princi to be sure, and she
appreciated it. But all tbe same Mon-
seur the Prince kept his eye on the
business end of the game, and when
the attorneys of both parties came to
gether they could not agree. The at
torne s for the prince placed their fig
ures so high that the other fellows
could not consent, and the matter was
so reported to Miss Caldwell. She, too,
co ild not agree. She went to the
prince, "remonstrated with him," told
him that she ' really loved him well
re-liy? ami as a proof of her real love
would consent to a "favorable cousid-
eration of his demands." IJ'it again
her attorneys kicked, telling her that
she was acting very imprudently in
prom'sing so niurh; that complications
would arise to make her a very unhap-
pv wile it seems th it the lawyers were
better posied about the frailties of
princes than the giddy thing whose
case they were managing and seeing
the wisdom of their statements, she ac
quiesced- "Then," says sh, "the
prince lade me good-bye, saying that
whenever my attorneys should deem it
proper to accede to hi3 demands, he
would fulfill his marriage contract.
With these words he left me and I have
not seen him since." Poor thing!
