Wednesday momlnfr, as Justice Grlsv
wold was opening hia office, a well dressed
man walked up to him, and with some hes
itation snid, "If I come hack in aboat an
hour will you tie a knot lor me?" The
'squire comprehended at once what he
meant, nnd told the would be Benedick
t lint if he wanted marriage ceremony
performed hw rould accommodate him.
The strnnir said that was the situation,
and a few minutrs later took his depart
ure. At sbot.t 0 o'clock ha returned witb
a Indy who nppeared to lie about 23 jean
old, and when the conple left the office
they were man nnd wife.
The 'squire thought nothing more of the
occurrence, hut at about U o'clock Wsdnea
day nlirht xotne one ran the door bell at
bis bouse, IKo Cctlnr avenue, in a rery rig
orous manner. Kvery one about the house
had retired, but ufter a little the dijrnifled
justice nppeared, robed In white, and bade
t he late comer nunnunce himself.
"I am the mini you married today, and I
want to M-e you right away on important
huHinos," enme a voice on the outside.
'Si u ire Uriswold opened the door and invit
ed the man to enter. "My wife has left me
and tnken t-VX) of my money," blurted out
the newcomer, lie was told to explain him
self, unci after a little hesitancy said: "My
name is Lrx-klinnl, and I live in Indiana.
1 came to this city to testify in a suit for
damage brought against the Valley rail
road. While here I became acquainted
with Miss Risa Iiin. and after a little
courting I proposed and was accepted.
Then we were married by you. Directly
after the ceremony I was called to give
testimony In the common pleas court.

"My wife nnd I had arranged to leave for
my home in Indiana as soon as the case
was finished, and before leaving her I gave
her iOu with which to make some pur
chases. I was on the witness stand seven
hours, but the minute I was excused I
went in search of my bride. She was not
at her bourdiiii; house, and the landlady
said that she went away at about 11 o'clock

he continued, "what am I to dof My wife
is cone, and she has got my money."
"linve you endeavored to ilnd her?" in
quired the justice.
yes, but I don't know where to look,"
replied the husband of a day.
"Well, what do you want of me?" que
ried 'Squire Griswuld.
"Why. I thounht that you would swear
out a warrant for her arrest,' said Lock
bard. "That will Veep until morning," an
swered he justice, "and now I want to go
Mr. Iockhard took the hint and depart
ed immediately. Justice Oriswold turned
oil the chs nnd sought his bed, but be was
not destined to have a long nap. At about
S o'clock the door bell was set to ringing
again. The 'squire afterward said that
something told him Ixx.-kb.ard was at
the other enii of tho bell wire and he was,
therefore, not (treat ly surprised upon onen
iiiK the door to be confronted by the newly
married Hoos,ier. Nevertheless he was
not prepared to meet two police officers
and a sobbing woman, and was startled
when the qnartet filed into the hall.
"This woman says that she is not my
wife," spoke up Lockhard.
"Yes," said ono of the olcers, "this man
found her, and called upon us to take her

The 'squire put on his eyeglasses, turned
np the ens, and then looked t the woman
critically. Without hesitation he said:
"I married this couple vesterday morn
ing." "I never snw yon licfore in my life," an
swered the woman promptly. "I already
have ono husband, what do I want of an
other!1" SETTLED AT LAST.
This appeared to astonish Lockhard, and
he reproached the woman in bitter lan
guage. "1 don't know you, sir," she replied
"Give me back my money, aud I will
sjree not to prmcut you," almost shout
ed the now nearly frantic man. The wom
an retrirdcd tlio speaker with disdain, but
did not reply. Justice Griswold made some
remark nUmt the interview coming to a
close, snd t!.e party lefr. That is the last
thojsquire saw of Iokhard or his bride.
When approached bv - -
uiudn was Lock
naril's lawful wife, I w.is disposed to ar
rest her. but h- did not appear to desire
that, and ts--duf the woman to erivu him
back his ninie v im-l a. ktiuwledztj borself
his wife. She obstinately refused to do
this, but fioV.lc he pcrsuad-sl ber to take
u walk with him. and they returned in
abnnt llfteen minutes, and he announced
tbat everything wis nil risht and that his
wife had been laboring under a mistake.

Nothinir more could be learned concern

what her nntecpdcnt.s were coulil not be dis

it is said, is quite wealthy. It is believed
that he r. turned to Indiana with his wife.
IX Mi! is Uirn for a lawyer, preacher, doc
tor, ami so m, t no same rule must apply to
a journalist. No doubt you can educate a
man to n cert ;in line, but "journalism"
moans more t han ono line. It means being
able to Nilco hold r f nuy work, from polit
ical editorials down to market reports. To
onesreuiiagly lirn for the work everything
comes ciwy. To ono who forces himself
into it the work is drndKrrv. In the bust
twenty ye.irs I have Keen rirtr college grad

well known preachers, lawyers, doctors and
professors in til country nt larce have been
announced as accepting journalism. I can't

sold that skeleton for . The druggist's
fifty dollar skeleton was pone.
We went in tears to the druggist and ex
plained the matter. We couldn't have raised
that 30 in 250 years. We were getting
board and clothing for the first year, cloth
ing ahd board for thesecond year, and both
of them for the third year; but the drug
gist forgave us on the spot, but he said he
would like us to let him have our skeletons
when wo were done with them. There
couldn't be anything fairer than that; we
spouted our skeletons and went away com
fortable. But from that time the drug

the most nnfurtnnato speculations lie ever
went into. After some years one of the
boys went and got drowned; that was one
skeleton gone, aud I tell you the druggist
felt pretty badly about it. A few years after
another of the boys went up iu a balloon.
He was to get o an hour for it. When he
gets back they will be owiug him S1.O00,

third boy tried au experiment to see if a

a vest pocketful; still it was enough to
show that some more of that estate had
The druggist was getting along in years,
and he commenced to correspond with me.
I have been the best correspondent he has.
He is the sweetest natured man I ever saw;
always mild and polite, and never wants
to hurry me at alL I get a letter from him
every now and then, and ho never refers to
my form as a skeleton; says, "Well, how
Is it getting along is it in good repair?"
I got a night rate message from him re
cently said he was getting old nnd the
property was depreciating in value, nnd if
I could let him have n part of it now he
would give time on the balance. Think of
the graceful way in which he does every
thing the generosity of it all. You can
not Uml a liner character than that. It is
the gruciouscharacteristic of nil druirgists.
So, out of my heart, I wish you all pros

"There must Is- nn immense amount of

Assistant Postmaster ("iayler recently,

letter, telling me how hard it had been for
him to save the $10, and begging me to see
that he receive 1 either his money back or
the counterfeit bills for which he hail paid,
he didn't care which. As a government
official, however, I could not aid him lu
getting the counterfeit money, which, fur
thermore, never existed." New York Trib

Where there is a tendency to speak flatly,

the nose" a great error, since thedifBculty
is decidedly a failure to get the tone

sounds, in which t4e dramatic thought is
Hp expression only, will it lima do away
with all tendency to mumble and wnnfuse
sounds. With clearness of speech once
established the next efforts must be di

the experience of a New York playwright

is by constitutional remedies Deafness
is caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube
When this tube gets toaamed yoa nave
rumbling sound or imperfect bearing, and
when it is entirely closed, deafness Is the
result, and unless the Inflammation can
be taken out and this tube restored to its

Macbeth's " pearl top " and
pearl glass " lamp-chimnevs
are made of tough glass that
costs four times as much as
common glass; and the work
on them costs a good deal
more than the work on com
mon chimneys, -iust as the
work on a dress is propor
tioned to cost of stuff.
The dealer is right in saying
he can't afford to sell them at
the prices of common irlass
And what will become of
his chimney trade if his chim
neys never break ? He is apt
ta.be wrong there. He can
afford to charge a fair price
and give new chimneys for all
that break in use.

Nothing is a more distressing
Bight than to fee a strong man
BofferiDg with th Asthma. It
is, emphatically, a fight for life
This was the rise with A. .1
Boylan, th well known giain
merchant in Peoria, 111. He
had Asthma for twenty five
years About ha f the time be
was incapaciiat-il for work.
When the attack came npon
him he had to bit np da3's ami
nights in an arm chair and in
hale the fames of paltpeter ovt-r
burning coals to obtain a niin
ute'8 relief. Every slight rold
and every change of tempra
tnre brought on his malady.
He saw before him an unen
viable prospect of suffering all
his life, with no hope or pros
pect of relief. Finally one of
-his neighbors recommended him
to try Reed's German Cough
and Kidney Cure. He listened
In scornful incredulity. He had
tried everything and nothing
did him good; but after sitting
up to Dignts and lighting his
old enemy, who literally had
him by the throat, he tri-d a
bottle To use his own words,
"It went to the spot at once."
Mr. Boylan took two teaspoort
fuls, and in fifteen minutes he
did what he had not been able
to do before in fifteen years, he
lav down and enjoyed a sweet
and refreshing sleep of twelve
hours' duration Since then he
has not enffered from Asthma.
When he feels It coming on he
takB a dos of Reid's Uerman
Congh and Kidney Cure and is
a well man. Any sufferer from
Asthma who will write to Mr.
A. J. Boylan, Peoria. 111., will
not only have this statement en
dorsed by the gentleman him
self, but he will take pleasure
in making it still more rr.
phatic. To use his own words,
"I would not be without Weil's
German Cough and Kidney
Cure for $500 a bottle if I conld
not get it otherwise." This
great remedy is for sale by all
druggists, at 25c and 50c a bot
