Judge Richardson, sitting at Boston.
recently heard the case of a husband
who. living apart from his wife, was
subjected to annoyance to the point
of distraction by her. She called him
up scores of times every day until the
husband, despairing of relief, preferred
a charge of trespass against her. to
which her counsel demurred. The court
held that the husband was entitled ta
no relief under the law, having taken
chances on such annoyance when hi
married, but stated that' the telephone
company could maintain an action in
his behalf. Thongh the husband lost
his suit, if the wife again invades his

in a state of Incipient revolt against
Senators Cullom and Hopkins on ac

out the local federal patronage. There
are six of these offices to be filled by
appointment, and it is alleged that

outsiders, leaving only three jobs to
Chicago republicans. John C. Ames,

are Raid to be slated for the positions
of collector of customs. United States

and the leaders bay that this is not a
fair jhare of the offices.
It is said that Henry Hertz will be
continued as internal revenue collector

man and a woman who attracted the
attention of the others. The woman

bov. Deneen said to Have Decided on
One for Private Secretary.
In Springfield political circles a story
in circulation is to the effect that Gov.
Deneen win soon announce the ap
pointment of Clifford Raymond as his
private secretary. Mr. Raymond does
state politics and legislative matters
for the Chicago Tribune. Some time
ago Gov. Deneen honored Joseph C
Mason with the appointment as secre
tary of the civil service commission.
Mr. Mason was a newspaper man doing
the same work for the Record-Herald
that Mr. Raymond did for the Tribune.
We like best to call Scott s
Emulsion a food-medicine. It
is a term that aptly describes
the character ana action of
our Emulsion. More than a
medicine more than a food,
yet combining the vital prin

reason that Scott's Emulsion
has a distinct and special
value in all wasting diseases..
There is nothing better to
remedy the troubles of im

health in children. The action
of Scott's Emulsion is just as
effective- in treating weak

come for her before the train started.
She slipped another coin into his hand
and asked him to tell the gentleman
who had been withther that she would
take a rest and did'not wish to be dis
turbed till it became necessary. She
charged hini not to let the gentleman
with whom she was traveling know
where she was. The porter was to slip
away and come-to her.

her. as if some one had struck her.
"Even though tbe man who took her

child her child to go with him."
Another shudder passed over the lady.
She looked at the man holding the babe
with a pair of wild eyes that bespoke
terror, misery, remorse. lie was not
looking at her and went on with his
talk, which was addressed ns'much to
himself as to her.
"A woman who ran desert her child
is not a woman. She Is a monster. It
Is bad enough to go off with another
man. but to leave her child to die but
for the father's care, and that father

I might not hang a woman for murder,
but I should hang her for deserting her

"There's rooms upstairs," he said,
and the lady went up. The porter
went to a shed without. A searching
party headed by the lady's companion
came along, but, not finding her, they
went away. Then the train moved on.
Te next day the lady appeared at
her own home and gave as a reason for
her absence that she had gone to the
suburbs to visit her mother. The
storm had prevented her return and
broken down the telegraph wires, so she
could not communicate the reason of
her absence.., .
