the Wrong Man.
A dispatch from St. Louis says Mrs.
Robert T. Sturgeon, wife of the as
sistant cashier of the Merchants'
Laolede National Bank, who blunder
ed into accepting his proposal of mar
riage by sending him an acceptance
intended for another, has disappeared
Her husband is suing her for divorce.
The Sturgeons were married Id
February 1900. The bride was Miss
I Amy Bay, a daughter of a Virginia
I family, a young society womsn of this
I city and an intimate friend of Mrs.
I Rosemary Sartorls, the grandaughter
of President Grant.
She was a'pretty girl of great charm
and her suitors were many. For
three years it was muah of a butterfly
chase between Sturgeon and a band
some young Kentuoklan. Each was
jealous of the other and Miss Bay
never gave either the slightest im
pression as to whioh she preferred.
She corresponded regularly, went
riding and playetf golf with both.
Taen the two Fultors wrote to the
gin on the same day?not the ordinary
kind of love letter, but an appeal
such aa a man writes onoe In a life
. And M!bs May answered. To the
Kentuculan the reply v/as:
**I love you. Yes."
"I love you. But?no."
. Tneo In her feverish haste, with a
thousand thoughts whirling through
her mind, she mailed the two.
And it was the unexpected that
happened, for on the following day,
glorying in his triuapi, Sturgeon
came to claim her. The girl was b?
wilderer), but resizing that she must
bave put the letters in the wrong en
velopes, she played her part. She
was young and so "t- hear Led. and now
that. It happened, she could not make
The Kntucklin went away from
St. Louis and dropped out of her lift?
but apparently net out of h?r he\rt
or her mind or her soul. Yet she
married Sturgeon, never tolitn^ him
that she didn't care for him, f,ave in
an amiable, companion-like way.
The six years that follo^e^ were far
from pleasant. Sturgeon sec realized

Tombstones and Monuments.
Irepresent three large marble works, and it will pay anybody
needing anything in this line to get my prices before buying.
You should not fail to mark the last resting place of your loved
ones with a stone whose inscription will survive for many years
the crumbling touch of timo. It is a duty of love that should be
symbolized by something more lasting than flowers watered by
tears of grief. Every slab, shaft, tombstone or monument I han
dle is a triumph of the stone cutter's, sculptor's and engraver's
art and my prices are most reasonable. How about that neglect
grave of mother, or father, sister or brother? Can refer you to
work done in this county by the companies I represent, and I think
that you will agree that it is first-class in every particular.
Also take orders for high-grade sewing machines, pianos and
organs. Others are higher in price?hut none better.
