THE TIMES. WASHINGTON,? SUJST DAY. SEPTEMBER 4, 1898.
f 'With the sun god's piercing rays beating a merry tattoo on hu
manity's head, we realize that more than ordinary efforts must be made
to draw-sweltering womankind from out the kindly shelter of the roof.
Now this weather is a great disappointment to us. Most of our special
purchases were made in early Fall goods. This sale you know was in
tended to fill in the gap betwixt Summer and Autumn. We can't afford
to and we don't intend to let these jobs and manufacturers' lines crowd
in on the regular goods, so we'll have to go even lower in our pricing
than we have done, and if needs be skim off the skim of profit that
just barely covers our TRADE SALE PRICES.

Mary 0. Agnow's Allegations
Against Her Husband.
SHE SUES I0R A DIV0KCE

the Petition Struggle for the Pok
hcnnIoii of u Son Some of the-Sei-iieH
I.iUil In Ireland 1'lnintllT
the Widow of Dr. A. G. Lord.
Mrs. Mary O. Agnew filed proceedings
tor divorce yesterday against her hus
band, Samuel" H. Agnew, to whom she
was married over fourteen years ago in
her father's residence, at Bowling Green,
The story of Mrs. Agnew's troubles a3
told in her bill of complaint, reads mare
like a chapter from a novel than a cita
ticn of happenings in every-day life. Her
married life has been ful of exciting in
cidents, which have taken place on two
continents and upon the ocean, and cul
minated a few days ago in this city in
a street tceue, which refaiilted in the ar
rest of her husband for assaulting her
and attempting to take from her by
iorce her only child, a boy, about thir
teen years of age. His case is still pend
ing in the Police Court, the trial being
set for September 21. In the meantime,
Agnew is at large on $3,000 bond.
Her Trip to Ireland.
Mrs. Agnew states in her affidavit that
she is the daughter of J. S. Davles, of
Virginia, and at the time of her mariiage
to her present husband was the widow
of Dr. A. G. Lord; that soon after she
married Agnew they both went to Ire
land to live with his parents and remain
ed there until his father's home was de
stroyed by fire.
At his suggestion she returned to Amer
ica and went to live with her parents
again. In 1SS7 she received a letter fiom
her husband, who was still in Ireland,
stating that he was in great trouble and
disgiaccd forever. Upon learning this
she immediately started for Belfast, Ire
land, where her husband was at that
While making the trip across the ocean
a child was born to her, which died be
fore the journey was endea. on arriving
In Belfast hhe managed to extricate her
husband from his troubles and soon after
returned to this country. Her husband
remained, saying that he had no inten
tion of coming back to the United States.
The Iluslmiiil Aiie:ii'N.
Soon after her arrival in Virginia,
however, her husband made his appear
ance at Bowling Green, and Mrs. Agnew
alleges that he kidnaped her son and
took him to New York, where he kept
him hidden from her for a long time.
In the meantime she had instituted pro
ceedings for divorce, and her husband
proposed to her that if she would with
draw the suit he would return to her the
boy. She refused, she says, and through
the aid of detectives got the child back.
Her husband then returned to Ireland
and the plaintiff says sho never saw or
heard from him again until one day in
September, 1SSG, she met him on the
street In this city. A partial reconcilia
tion was effected, Mr. Agnew says, on the
Condition that her husband would reform
and treat her as a wife should be treated.
They set up a residence at No. 1313 Q
Street, and lived there until a few days
ago, when through fear the petitioner
avers she had to leave him.
Attempt nt 'Itldiiiipiiijc.
When she got possession of her son in
New York, for fear that her husband
would again kidnap him. she sent him to
her father at Bowling Green. Having
been told, however, that his presence
would be necessary' In the divorce pro
ceedings, she sent for him to come to
Her husband learned of her intention,
and was watching for the boy, and, know
ing this, Mrs. Agnew says she went to
Alexandria to meet her boy and accom
panied him to this city.
They were met at the depot, she says,
by her husband, who tried to take the
child from her by force. She called an
officer to her as-dsta-nce and caused her
husband to be ai rested, as already
Mrs. Agnew has for a number of years
been employed in the Pension and Census
offices. Mr. Agnew's name appears in the
city directory as an advance agent, pre
sumably in the-theatrical business.

An Alien Intcrcht.
(From the Detroit Free Tress.)
It was during the lteenei.' parade on Sundaj
The German citizen and his wife and daughter
stood in the crowd near the corner of "Woodward
and Adams .Ucnucs. Beside them, on crutches,
balanced a grizzly old chap who wore the badge
nf the G. A. II. on his breast.
Patiently the German and his family waited.
The old lady looked down the street.
"Der dev gomes, jet," she said.
"Is itf" asked the o man.
"Sliure," corroborated tie daughter.
Then as the bojs marched before them the old
lady said, "I'll pet dej's gladder as dey vas vhen
dej- vent avaj ain'd it."
"Oh, I don't know," put in the veteran of the
civil war. "They ain't had sech a bad time. 1
wuz in seventeen battles."
The old German lady turned to her. husband
and said, "Oh, I guess dej vas a vhar peforc vee

"Jcin," said the old man, "der vhas none."
"Shure der vhas," put in the daughter, "ddn'd

'Ab, jah, dof ees so," nodded iiT the old lady,
"Dot -vlias before ve gome, aind't it?"
And with a new interest, ceiy now and then
the old ladj would glanee otcr her shoulder at

prominent In Washington affairs for
nearly half a century, died shortly after
5 o'clock yesterday morning in his apart

resided since hlaiarrival in Washington
in 1E52. JHo was nighty-one years of age
and for some time, past had suffered with
weakness incident to his advanced years.
Hla remains will be interred In Oak Hill
Cemetery this afternoon at 5 o'clock, tho
services being in charge of the Hope
Lodge of Masons, with which he had
been prominently connected for a number
There arc perhaps few men In Wash
ington who are better known than was
Dr. McNairy. He was a member of ono of
the oldest and best families of Tennessee,
and always bore himself with the courtly
gallantry characteristic of the old school.
In naval circles he was very popular,
and numbered among his friends nearly
all of the higher officers of the army and
navy who acquired prominence during the
Civil War, besides many of those who
have since achieved distinction. In the
department, where he has been so long,
Ills unique personality Is almost insep
arably linked with the conduct of that
branch of the government in the minds
of the younger employes.
Dr. McNairy was born In Nashville, and
received his early education there. After
reaching his majority he studied medicine
in Philadelphia, graduating from the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, and practiced
medicine until 1S52, when he received an
appointment In the Navy Department and
came to Washington.
Upon his arrival here he took apart

oldest employe of that hotel. Until re

good, but advancing years brought their
attendant weakness, and recently he had

Nash, a naval surgeon, who had pre

niece and nearest relative, Mrs. Irene A.
Evans, of Nashville, was telegraphed for

of whom achieved distinction in the

"What the groundsr for expulsion were
no one outside of the executive board
knows; at least, they have not been di

ever, would imply that. the expelled men
must have been charged with attempting
to disrupt an assembly, for under the
constitution of the Order It is for this
cause alone that a member can be turned
out of the order without trial, as It is
alleged Is the case in the present in
stance. Only ComiilicnteM Mutter.
No matter what may be assigned as the
immediate cause, it can be traced to the
long standing strained relations which
have existed between the District Assem

order, especially the general secretary
treasurer, John W. Hayes.
For years the local district assembly
has been opposed to the methods of Hayes

Workman Hicks exceeded hla authority.
Master Workman Lawson and tho other
members of tho assembly on this ground
applied to the courts for an injunction to
restrain the general officers of the ordor
from further interference with their ac

the laws of the order.
A temporary restraining order was
granted by Justice Cole, and the matter
is to come up for final hearing on Sep

presents Itself is the restraining order
being in full force does the action of
the executive board, by the expulsion of
the members referred to, put it in con

could be considered as in contempt of the

there Is no doubt xlhat the recent action
of the board will iday a prominent part
in the matter of inaklng the temporary

The StiSKre Hamlet.
(From the Detroit Free l'rcss.)
The satirical and savage V. S. Oihert once
wrote a parody on "Hamlet" that i full of the
point and hi.mor of the characteristic Gilbert
kind. Here is a specimen brick:
Alas! 1 am betrothed.
Betrothed? To whom?
Thou lovest Hamlet?
Now, I said not so
I said we were betrothed.
And what's he like?
Alike for no two seasons at a time.
Sometimes he's tall sometimes he's very short
Now with black hair now with a flaxen wipr
Sometimes an English accent then a French
Then English, with a strong proincial "burr."

But Danish never, take him how jou will;
And, strange to sav, wbate'er his tongue may

He always dresses as Kincr James the First!
Guild. Oh, he is surely mad.
Oph. Well, there again
Opinion is divided. Some men hold
That he's sanest far of all cane men
Some that he's really sane, but shamming mad
Some that he's really mad, but shamming sane
Some that he will be mad some that h; was
Some that he couldn't be. But, on the whole,
(As far as I can make out what they mean),
The favorite thcorj's something like this:
Hamlet is idiotically sane,
With lucid intervals of lunacy.

suffered from constipation in its severest form. My liver failing to act
for a week, I Lave tried any number of specifics and have also had
physicians prescribe fo,r me, but received only temporary relief. I
had my attention first called to
by a small sign on a telegraph pole which said ' One Gives Relief.' I
procured some and before I had taken half a dozca I b?3an to feel the
good effect, especially from, the pain I -would suiTcr when, my liver was
trying to act. I now "have no .more trouble 3Ty bowels act regular
and free, and. as a resulLmy health is muck improved."
