After Living Willi Hint Twe Days Ucerge
Ott's Wife Left Him.
A new phase in the celebrated case of
Geerge Ott. whose efforts te have his
newly wedded wife return te him have
alrea'dy been made known through The
I .......... ... .1 l.,...l !.. U,..,l, U'M.
son's court nt Cincinnati.
Ott it will be remembercd married Miss
Clara Story, September Oth, and after liv
ing together two days the wife received a
telegram at Paris, where her husband is
largely interested in cattle dealing, from
lief guardian, Jehn Story, at Cincinnati,
stating that her sister was dying nnd
wished te see her. Mrs. Ott accordingly
hastened te Cincinnati, and has net yet
returned te her husband. The latter
mndc un investigation of her strange con
duct nnd found that the telegram was
merely a ruse from her relatives te have
her leave him. Ott immediately insti
tuted habeas corpus proceedings before
Judge Wilsen, but his wife stated te the
Court that she did net desire te return te
her husband, assigning no reason, how
ever, for her peeulinr action. Since that
time Mrs. Ott has been residing with her
married sister, Mrs. Sallle Lecsch.
About 0 o'clock Tuesdav night Ott ap
peared before 'Squire Wifsen and swere
out a warrant for the arrest of both
Leesch nnd his wife, charging them with
abduction. A Constable nrrcstcd them
nnd brought them before 'Squire Wilsen,
who placed them under bend for their
appearance next morning..
While Mr. and Mrs. Leesch were en
their way te the city in the custody of
a Censtaule, a couple of rough looking
characters appeared at the house and In
troduced themselves as agents of a so se
called Queen City Dctecttve Agency, a
private concern, about which little geed
Is known. They were supposed te be F.
S. Pendery who was discharged from the
sorvice of the Chesapeake and Ohie Rail
road, and William Morrison, known te
his intimates as "Grensy," and the two
exponents (V) of the law nttempted te in-
duce Mrs. Ott te leave the house nnd
accompany them te the city under the
plea et meeting her husband. She re
fused te go, naturally a little alarmed at
their somewhnt uncouth appearnnce, and
the two olllcers (?) would probably have
attempted by force what they wcre una
ble te de by stratagem, but the girl
screamed, ami her guardian, with some
of the neighbors, came te her assistance,
and the alleged detectives retired.
Mrs. Ott and her sister nre of the epiu
Ien that the arrest of the latter and her
husbnnd wns only a schome whereby,
during their absonce, Mrs. Ott could be
abducted. Ott is 20 years of age, while
his wife Is only 17. He has always home
an unblemished reputation, nnd' his nu
merous friends sympathize with himln
hjs peeulinr misfortune.
The Chosapeako and Ohie handled
mero G. A. It. excursionists than any
ether read in the country, nnd a re re
marknble fact is that net a single accident
hnppened en their line, says The Ashland
They handled forty-seven trains,
which aggregated three hundred nnd
forty-nin'e conches. Allowing seventy
persons te each coach they hauled the
enormous number of 21,430 people.
Every precaution wus taken by the C.
and O. peeple te prevent nccldeuts. All
trains te Washington were given n clear
trnck, nnd section men were placed nt
stated intervals along the trnck, nnd a
man wns placed at each switch te sce
that everything was nil right.
The G. A. R. peeple are very loud in
their praise of the treatment given thorn
by the C. and O. management, nnd they
will ndvertlse this line all ever the Union
en their return home.
Few rends could have handled the
large number of trains its did the O. and

ANOTHER BIG COMBINE.
There's te He Ne Monopoly of the Tobacco
lliisiness lit Cincinnati.
Cincinnati's big tobacco combine is net
te have the monopoly of business in that
city that it counted en nnd confidently
started out te attain.
A rival Is alrendy as geed as in the
Held. It is the Farmers' nnd Shippers'
Tobacco Warehouse Company. It will
begin business en or before January 1st
The new company ewes its origin te
the disaffection among tobacco men in
Ohie and Kentucky with " the combine."
It wns understood by them that "the
cembiue" uimed at controlling prices and
ether matters cennected with the business
te a degree that would be very trouble
some and embarrassing. Hence the desire
and demand for competition, which has
icsultcd in the formation of the Farmers'
nnd Shippers' Company.
That firm Is new incorporated under
the laws of Kentucky, with a capital
stock of 1,000,000. The men In it are
President J. D. Hcarue of the Third Na
tional Bank, DeWitt C. Cellins and Frank
These names nre sufficient te make it
accepted everywhere that the new enter
ptise is business from the start. Mr.
Cellins hns been prominent in banking
nnd tobacco business in Covington for
several years. He was Cashier of the
Northern Bank, and subsequently n part
ner In the big tobacco Arm of Levcll &
Buillngten. Mr. Cellins is widely known
through Kentucky, and especially among
its tobacco men, nnd possesses the confi
dence of them all as one of the most
capable and upright of the state's busi
Mr. Frank Ferd is the well-known
wholesale grocer. He does net Intend te
take an active part In the nffalrs of the
naw company, though he is one of the
organizers and will be a heavy stock
holder. The placing of the stock is new going
en. and has been left entirely with Mr.
Cellins, who is new traveling through
Kentucky, placing the stock where it will
de the most geed.
There ate'$700,000 of preferred stock,
which it is expected will pay from six te
eight per cent, dividend. The remaining
$300,000 is te be common stock.
The cempnny has several offers for the
site of its building. It will deal with
them in another week or se and with the
purpose te make its establishment com
plete In detail.
The encouragement which hns se far
readied the new company from the
growers and dealers in Ohie and Ken

in a piece of that name. It is a simple
story of Irish life, that at times is very
nffecting, but through which runs a
vein of Irish wit and humor that can
only be found in plays of this char
acter Of course Miss Scanlan is the
star around which the lesser planets
rovelvo. Her singing was indeed excel

in a manner that brought tears te the
eyes of many of the audience. The
character was a simple one, but In Miss
Scnnlan's hands it is made mero of than
perhaps what the author Intended.
Nothing but praise could be said of the
star's support. They realized that Miss

Lexington Leader. Cholera breeds and

of the filthiest cities in the world, nnd
for the past fifty years has been ravaged
by epidemics Up te the present time
mero than fifteen thousand cases have

city's population. They live in abject
misery in the filthiest quarters, en streets
se narrow that the houses, above the first
stories, almost touch, thus keening out
sunshlue and air currents, and inclosing
wnrmth and moisture te feed the pesti
