Today's Market Quotations
Chicago, III., May 27. In the hope
that it may aid in effecting reconcilia
tions between waning couples, wheth
er or not they get as far as the di
vorce court, Judge Adelor J. Petit yes
terday gave out a letter sent him by a
woman. The name is withheld. It is
dated May 23. In part it reads.
"My Dear Judge Petit:
"If my divorce and regret ca.n be of
any help to you in your talks to warr
ing couples please use it as you see
"In 1907 I separated from my hus
band, a young physician, and two
years later secured a divorce.
"He was continually asking me to
reconsider and come back, but I
wculd not listen and sent him away
again and again. He was heartbroken
anci worked himself into ill health.
"Finally in September, 1910, we
were remarried' anil he was to return
to me the next summer, as even then
I would not go back to him at once.
"In the summer of 1911 he came
beck and we and our two children
spent a most .delightful summer, but
at the end of the summer he decided
he must return to Mexico and that I
should follow in January of 1912.
"But when 1 arrived at my destina
tion I found the poor boy ill and worn
to a shadow.
"I gave him every care and tried
often to picture his loneliness when I
was not there, and had many a mo
ment of the deepest remorse for the
years we spent apart.
"One.can easily picture my feelings
wt en in his illness the only thought he
had was for me; how I fought day and
night, side by side with doctors and
nurses, for the life that was now the
most precious on earth to me and how
I felt the world would be well nigh
lost unless he could be saved.
"I gave as much of my own blood
to try to save him, as the doctors
would take for him. It almost killed
ma when he finally had to give up his
brave fight and go and I would have
given one-half of the remnant of me
that is left me if I could have saved
DU. ' him alive for only one hour longer or
to erase that separation of years.
"But regret! That is a vain thing
when one could have spared one's self
"I do hope the couples coming be
fore you can think of these things and
trv to be tolerant of one another's
faults. I am sure if people intending

When Buttons Were Big.
Bachaumont writes in his "Secret
Memoirs,- Nov. IS, 17S6: "The mania
for buttons is today extremely ridicu
lous. They are not only of enormous
size, some of them as big as six pound
crowns, but miniatures and pictures
are made upon them, and this orna
mentation is extremely costly. Some of
them represent, the medals of the
twelve O-iesars, others antique statue
and still others the Metamorphoses ot
Isabey. in his biographical notes,
says that when be came to Paris he
worked for a living by making copies
of Vanlocs and Bouchers on the lids ot
snuffboxes and that for these medal
lions he wes paid from 6 to 8 francs
each. "As it was still the fashion,'' he
said, "to wear buttons as big as a five
franc piece, upon which Cupids, flow
ers and landscapes were cut in cameo,
I went into that business. I got 12
i sous for sach."
