Copyright, 1802, by Edgar W. Nye.
In the Divorce Country, )
Sioux Falls is too good and too great
to be known abroad as the headquarters
for quick divorce. We were shown at
the Cataract House the various plaintiffs
The trial of th se cases affords in
teresting entertair tnent for man and
beast. The Baro iess de Steurs was

anon sticking a fcrk in her ua rcc to see
if it was done. IJ or husband said that
she was crasy, an 1 tried to put her in a
retreat She has him on the run, how
ever, as this goes to press.
According to the baroness, who is a
tall, handsome woman, the baron used
to bpen tho eser.i-os of the day by re
versing his culls m:.! ejaculating to his
wife, "I wish 1 h:u! never married youl"
J met a man wi n was here as a wit

"And how does v.-.:ncssing pay here?"
"Very well," h said; "very well in

card and said:
" 'Yon have made a mistake. Tho

"1 have since t.iat abaudoued the stage
to its fate."
1 have decided that a lack of suitable
employment has much to do with these
divorces in high life, if the husband
had to saw wood or jerk an engine over
500 miles of mortgaged roadbed every
day, and could come homo tired and
hungry six days in the week instead of
loading himself up with spirits and club
scandal, ho would probably bo able to

The life of tht party to an action for

Plaintiff and defendant at Sioux Falls
live at the same hotel because it is tho
best one. There they mope around,
waiting for thrir turn at court, and

1 did not see the Daron du Stetirs. but
1 saw his successor. Doing a ls;.ru, as
a Dakota man said yesterday, is not al
ways tho snap 1 hat it is regarded by tho
masses. The leart of a baron may Iks
at times cast down even as others are.
A cold hearth itone around which are
clustered the slippers of another person
no doubt chills the heart of a baron just
as it would tho heart of one who is in
1 sometimes 1 hink that possibly I have
hurt the baroi: business in this country
by a light and flippant manner in re
ferring to some of our struggling barons,
trat I am sorry for it now. Barons who
mean to do rig it will always rind in me
hereafter a warm hiend, patron and
lIiss McSwe'lan Woertz writes a let
ter from a post office in New Hampshire
which 1 cannot, make out. She says:
Dear Sir Pardon a stranger from thus ad
dressing you. nr. doubt, as your time is nil
taking up and you bate, 1 daresay, to be bur
dened with the cares of others jieople, but I
am so situated that 1 must write or talk to

It is no sbimera. It is real. Oh, I have prayed
to die and be sh t of the whole business, but
Providence seemed to Lave it in for me.
My father married injudiciously and baa al
ways hated me lecau-e I am so little like him.
How can I rescn bio papa by request? I can
not resemble piople on such short notice. I
cannot resemble people while they wait.
Even if I could resemble pa I would hesitate.
He is plain and i hews hard tobacco. His soul
is just as gordi 1 as it can be. Once a man
called pa a Pessimist and pa bit his ear off.
He was sorry for it afterward, because whilst
in jail a kind he tried luily showed pa the dic
tionary and he t aw that he was too hasty.
I lost my mother hist week. Grief and Li
chloride of gold killed her. And so nt the age
of twenty-niue years 1 am motherless, and I
never did look ell in mourning. I hate- it. I
look like a camphorated widow. Father
threatens to marry again. This time he will
marry Into tht army the Salvation Army.
She is a peri from away back, fc-he sings
"Come to Jesus, 'and tho teams then run away
and break thinps.
But father leves her. I can see that. He
cant keep bis e ,-es off from her. Yon ought to
see her on thi street singing at eventide,
marching throi gh the mad. It would make
i j fi n f
ton laugh to see the way she maltreats a tam-
Dounne. sne came and kissed me onct, but I
took it off with some wart medicine I had on
hand at the time.
What would you do, Mr. Nye, if you was me?
I have no home at all. This is just as 1 say, a
what-you-may-call-it on earth. After what I
have saw of marriage you can see that I look
npon it askance, and yet 1 believe I could make
some good man happy. Do you not think so?
Do yon know such a man? Or if not a real
good man, one that I could mold?
You must meet a good many different people
one tune and another, especially young men of
your own age. How would it do for yon to
throw them in my way? 1 send carte de visite,
also carte blanche: also picture of myself
taking a 4th of July held here. I do my hair
different now, and have quit wearing prunella
shoes except In hot weather. Friends say I
have greatly Improved since this picture was
I was never sick a day In my life, and can
eat anything that is set before me. 1 am fond
of children and buckwheat cakes.
Tell me what I Bhonld do to escape this liv
ing death in the home nest. What do you
think of advertising for a corespondent? 1
hate to write my soul throbs to a man of whom
1 have never saw. Do you know what to do to
remove superfluous hair? 1 am afraid that a
mustache is budding on my face, and though 1
do not mind it now. 1 know it will mortify me
when I get old. If there is anything gives me
a pain it is too see an old ludy going down to
her grave in an iron gray mustache.
Write to me, Mr. Nye. if you can. for I am
practically an orphan, and if I were to take a
wrong step now after writing to you. if you do
not reply, you would never forgive yourself,
would you? Vours with love.
Laura McSwei.i.an Woertz..
P. S. 1 understand voice culture and em
balming: also interior decorations and butch
ering. 1 could make some man's borne all
aglow with gladness if I had his love and an
order on the storo. Please do not cast this let
ter aside with a petulant cxclamnt ion, hut man
age somehow to get my address into the paper
and 1 w ill knit yon a big handsome clouded
blue xt-ffcr tippet for next winter. Can you

U M. W.
Dear Laura Your letter regarding
penmanship and also tackling obstruse
questions regarding the great why, and
laying hold on the mysterious because,
was duly received through the personal
influence of Mr. VVanamakor.
1 hardly know how to answer you
fully and succinctly, and 1 would hate
to write you and then feel afterward
that the letter was not succinct. 1
would judge from your letter that you
are naturally full of sparklo and chaste
gayety, but had boon kept back and
Btopiod on and bruised by Fate and
thrown down, and ill fortune has, as 1
may say, had you in the door. Excuso
plain words, for I am a plain man, plain
and simple. I make a specialty of both
of these features.
Your letter and composition would in
dicate that yon could make some good
man deliriously happy if yon would.
You would have to use judgment of
course about letting this happiness
dawn on him too suddenly. You should
sort of meutally unfold to him day by
day, as it were, so that he can get ac
climated. That would bo my advice.
Do not let him mentally founder him
self, it might give him brain colic, and
nothing is moro disagreeable than for
nn intellectual bride to have to walk
tho floor of nights with a groom who
has overloaded his thinker and has acid
ity and water brash on the brain.
Co careful, Laura, to dawn on him
easy, like an October morning. Do not
burst on him like the unexpected return
of an American husband who said he
was going to bo away all night, but
steal in on his darkened soul like a foot
pad in York state. Sort of grow on
him, like a beautiful lichen or edible
fungus. Cling to him, as Deuteronomy
would say, like a pup to a root.
You are of a kindly nature, and would
also shine in the household. 1 would say
that, judging by your handwriting, yon
would make a good jell cako with frost
ing on it. if reverses came. Also that
you would turn out a good clinker built
ph, while in the matter of needlework
and rag carpets you would arouse tho
envy and malice of the great maestros
Tho acoustics of your rag carpets
would awaken a new interest in explo
sives. You would not lie content with
imitating nature in your art. Yon would
nuike foliage a good deal greener than
nature has ever dared to do, and your
sunsets would be redder and more in
temperate, I think.
Dut you must not be c ast down, Laura.
Certainly I would encourage you to be
brave. Good men are scarce and shy
now, butjwhen spring opens you will
hear their baritone hoi.k as they go
northward. Do not got too near them
while molting, for they are timid and
easily startled, but watch your chance
when they are grazing and possibly dur
ing the sucker season you may land one,
for men as a rule are not so able as they
let on to be.
THE MAN WHO KIUIiT DO.
I saw a man yesterday whom 1
thought at the timo would fall an easy
prey if you had been near by with a
good Limerick hook baited with red
He was a real bald man. You could
see at a glance that it was not assumed.
He only had a slight dash of hair, a
shrimp pink lambrequin of self reliant
jute hanging recklessly on the suburbs
of his head and wandering along down
among the large cool patches of sage
green freckles on his hectic neck. I
never speak lightly of a baldheaded
man, Laura, for I always 8ayto myself,
"No man knows when he may be that
way himself." But this man whom I
picked out for you was a clear case.
There was no help for it. It was one of
those confirmed cases of premature
balrnesj at tt-e age of seventy-nine
j ears resulting from sitting too close to
t'e footliehts in orrW to fVillrra- ,
libretto and divertissement of the opera,
or possibly, perhaps, from wearing one's
halo too much in the house.
A lady who has the good fortune to be
a friend of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes
relates a little anecdote of the first time
she asked a favor from him as an author.
She had just completed a book for chil
dren, and Dr. Holmes kindly consented
to read the manuscript.
When it was returned to her after his
perusal she naturally looked it over with
eagerness and anxiety, in haste to see
what criticisms or corrections her dis
tinguished friend had made. She turned
page after page, bnt found no erasure,
mark nor marginal note, until at length,
nearly at the end of the story, she came
to a singlo neatly penciled line in Dr.
Holmes' fine handwriting.
It was placed against a passage upon
which she had rather prided herself, a
vivid description of the picnic feast of a
group of children in a grove.
First reading tho paragraph to see if
she herself could find anything amiss,
the next read what he had written. It
"Don't let those children eat pickles!"
Frank D'yon know, I heard the other
day that the blocks from which they
print thoe f00 bills in America take
nearly a year to engrave.
Ella ()li, really! 1 suppose that's
why they're so expensive. Judy.
I'very Man Has Ilia Price.
Mrs. Rrown Do you think you could
learn that lesson if 1 gave you ten cents?
Little Johnnie No, ma. Dut I'm
sure I could if you gave me a quarter.
