Love Troubles Overwhefm
Major Gen. Sickles, Aged
Hero Of the Civil War
MA.I. GEX. DAM El. E. SICKLES.
MAJ. owe. SICKLES' LIFE IS
LONG Iti:COKI> OK ROMANCE
AM) TRAGEDY MINGLED
WITH MILITARY AXI) IMP
NEW, YORK, Oct. s.—Gen.
I>:111 i<> 1 K. Sickles must answer
another $8,000 suit. Disguised
as messenger boys, process serv
ers today were admitted to the
veteran, at 23 Fifth avenue, and
served him with summons and
complaint in a suit of August
Hecksher to recover $8,000 on
an overdue promissory 'note.
Wilbur McKinstry, attorney for
Hecksher, Bays the suit has noth
ing whatever to do with any of
(ion. Sickles' family troubles.
Process servers said they had
been trying to serve papers for
ten days, but could not gel Inside
the house until they borrowed
messenger boy suits.
The love troubles of Maj. Gen.
Daniel E. Sickles would cause less
surprise if it were not for the
fact that love scandals have been
rare among American warriors.
Hui in this age, and In Amer
ica! It is little wonder ttiat the
fragmentary news stories of the
fiery old general's life that have
recently flashed over the country
arouse Intense nteniat.
Today General Sickles, hero,
statesman and diplomat, former
ambassador to Spain ,scion of one
of America's proudest families, at
the age of 87, sits alone in his
Fifth avenue mansion, surround
ed by his priceless war relics and
his rare editions of beautiful
books, forgetful of these play
things, shorn of his peace and
honor —and all for love. His life
is now revealed as a succession of
love tragedies, and the end is
(ien. Sickles, before the war,
had married beautiful Teresa
Gagioli, daughter of Antonio Bag
ion, a famous Italian musician.
She became involved In a love af
fair with Philip Barton Key, then
I'nited States district attorney at
Washington. Sickles shot Key to
death and separated from his
Oen, Sickles' military career is
well known. He came out of
the war a heroic figure. At Oettys-
si.-mmii MrMiN, who makes
sensational charges against his
burg he had won special glory—
and paid for it with tho loss of a
leg. The loss, however, did not
diminish the general's gallantry,
either as a soldier or a wooer.
Among many positions of hon
or, (Jen. Sickles was given the
post of ambassador to Spain.
Thero he won the love of Senor
tta Greah, tho handsome daugh
ter of a Spanish councillor of
state, of ancient and noble line
age. They were married in IX7O.
Two children wore born of this
union—Stauton, who has become
his bitter enemy, and Edna, now
Mrs. Crackenthoriie, wife of Capt.
Crackenthorpe of the British em
hassy at Tokio, Japan. Tho same
misfortune that had marred the
general's first marriage overtook
hiR second. He charged his wife
with Infidelity, and separated
from her in 1880. She has always
protested her Innocence.
It Is this wife who, after a
separation of 32 years, a few days
ago came to her aged husband's
aid, paying his debts and saving
his war relics.
Now, however, conies the reve
lation of the "other woman"—or
rather, of two other women, Mrs.
Sickles has declared that the gen
eral's housekeeper, Miss Eleanor
Karle Wilmerding, has an Impro
per Influence over him, and has
had for many years. The son's
accusation, however, is more
startling. He avers that for 19
years, beginning In 1879, his
father maintained Improper re
lations with a New York social
woman and present religious
worker, whose name, for obvlouß
reasons, Is not given here. She
was married In 1899. The son
has printed some of his father's
alleged love letters to her, which
show his ardor still unabated as
recently as 1897.
O«n. Sickles now angrily de
nies the charges made by hie
wife and son.
THE TACOHA TIMES.
Clyde Cole, recently divorced
by his wife, has asked for a re
opening of the case, alleging that
he could not appear for the hear
ing because he was in Jail at the
time for wife desertion.
Edwin F, Mastersom has filed

suit against the First ■ National
Assurance society, which was re
cently thrown out of court by
Judge Card. He Is asking $60.
Alleging his wife. Elizabeth
Alma Mighell, is in the habit of
leaving home without explana
tion, Grant Mighell has filed suit
for divorce after nearly 30 years
of married life.

Editor Times: Here is a. very
simple rule that I invented 25
years ago far this problem:
100 plus 10-78 equals 1.4154.
Editor Times: This is my so
lution of Mr Houston's puzzle:
$1, cost, 10 per cent profit, 22
per cent selling price, or cost of
1-x (1 plus 10) equals 1.10.
1.10 is what the manufacturer
realized from the sale of his
article, hence I will use $1.10 for
the base. 1.10 plus (1.22) equals

Editor Times: After reading
the answer to Mr. Houston's puz
'fe I wish to admit my solution:
A equals article.
P equals profit.
C equals cost of selling them.
A plus C plus P equals price
it can be sold at—Bs.B.
Editor Times: My solution to
the arithmetical problem is as fol
$1 equals the wholesale cost.
100 per cent equals $1.00.
1 per cent equals 1.00-100.
110 per cent equals 100-100
plus 110-1 equals $1.10, which
would give 10 per cent profit on

the investment. There is a cost
of 22 per cent for selling. 100
per cent—2 2 per cent equals 78 -J
per cent. Then $1.10 is 78 per
cent of the amount the goods
would have to be sol-d for.
7 8 per cent equals $1.10.
1 per cent equals 110-78.
100 per cent equals 110-78 ,
plus 100-1- equals $1.41 1-39, '
To prove this, if we take 22 p«r
cent of $1.41 1-39, and substract
it from $1.41 1-3, we have $1.10,
whitth gives a profit of 10 per cent
