.V story of romantic tenor and
strong local interest came into cir
culation today in the form of a special
from LaPorte. 1ml., recounting the re
union of a missing husband and Ti
faithful and lortunate wire. I he nar
rative is best told in the. language of
the dispatch: "At Marion yesterday
occurred a joyful reunion between K.
K. Truekenmiller, a common laborer,
and his wife, a wealthy woman of
Davenport, who had spent much mon
ey and many months in quest of him.
At one time Truekenmiller was a man
of good position but through love of
drink he lost his business, and then
his home, and finally fled from Daven
port to escape the ridicule of his for
mer friends. His wife became a ser
vant to one of her society compan
ions. Ily the death of a relative the
wife inherited a comfortable fortune
and immediately took up the search
for her husband with the assistance
of the police, discovering him at last,
dirty, lagged, and unkempt, working
on the Marion streets, an object to
test the love of the most faithful wife.
The ' meeting at police headquarters
was deeply pathetic. Truekenmiller
at first refused to go back to Daven
port, but yielded to her pleadings, and
also promised to never drink again.
She took him to a hotel and had him
bathed and shaved, and handsomely
clothed, and they left together to
make a new home and enter upon
a new life. The man was completely
unnerved by the sudden change in
his condition, for he had not learned
of his wife's inheritance.
One of the oldest residents of this
city, and a citizen long and promi
nently connected with this history of
Davenport, expired yesterday morn
ing when A. t'. Fulton passed quietly
away at his home. 120: Second avenue.
Mr. Fulton was in his O.'Jrd year, anl
his resilience here reached back into
Davenpoit's early days, when none
were, more active in promoting the in
terests of tlu city. His business af
fairs received. Mr. Fulton's attention
up to the last day he spent on earth,
although he had been confined to his
home for about a month, quietly con
templating and preparing for the end
which he could see was inevitable.
Ambrose Cowperthwaite Fulton va.
born in Chester county , Pa., July 7.
1811. His parents were Quakers, far
mers, plain people, of modest means.
Schools were primative, and were
kept only in the winter months. The
lads education was not of the sort
that the boys get now. In 1827 young
Fulton left the farm, and went to
Philadelphia. There he served a
prominent builder as an errand
boy, working in a store in the even
ings, and taking very little time in
deed for recreation. Later he lived
for a time in- New .Jersey, where he
cut cordwood, receiving one winter
the wage of 40 cents a cord. Later he
served as sailor, soldier, builder and
railroad contractor. He came to
Davenport in 1831. He wrote a great
deal for the newspapers in later years.
Mrs. Fulton died at an advanced age
several years ago. The surviving fam
ily consists of two sons an.l two
daughters. LeClaire Fulton, of Daven
port, Harry C. Fulton, of New York;
Mrs. Mary llolliday, of Atlanta, (ia.;
and Mrs. Fannie Nutt. of Washington,
I). C. Mrs. Nutt came here a couple
of weeks ago, and was with her fath
er during his last days, and the other
absent son and daughter are expect
ed here to attend the obsequies. The
funeral arrangements are not yet
completed, but the services will pro
bably be held Monday.

may be a question whether Ihey ever

intrigues and plots were constantly

more than counteract all questions of
knight errantry and gallantry. This
fact -is said to be well exemplified in
the play. Mary Tudor is the sister of
the king and is in love with a young
officer attached to the court, but the
kin-r has arranged a marriage for her
with the king of France. Mary is
strong willed like her brother, and
