The Mock Marriage Scamp the Hero of
Many a Matrlmonal Conquest Apparent
ly Another Victim.
WillUm U. . Oand le. the convicted
bigamist, wan thkeo to Aaamosa peniten
tiary from D-i en port yes'erdiy morning
by Sheriff Jones to begin the service of
his three yearb' sentence.
Tbe prisoner was in a s?mi-batnoroos
mood before leaving for tbe penitentiary.
He knew tbe gams was up, and seemed
determined to make tbe best of it.
"Tbis is pretty lougb on an innocent
man." be observed witb a leer, as the
sheriff snapped tne bracelets on bis
wrists. "I couldn't help the dear crea
ture's fallirg in love witb me. Women
are all anxious to marry, you know." and
tbe accomplished rascal laughed at bis
own peculiar levity.
He didn't seem to care much about bis
prospective residence for tbe next three
years in the state prison. Tbe only fea
ture about it. perhaps, that troubles him
is that he will not be able to make an
other matrimonial alliance for over two
years at least. If he behaves himself
properly in tbe state prison he will get a
good time credit of three months each
year or nine months in ail. That will J
let him out with a service of 27 months.
County Attorney Heir z. the Leder
says, upon leamiag that Cansd&l bad j
another wife in Vancouver, Washington,
wrote to her asking for evidence of her
marriage to the gay deceiver. This
morning he received a registered letter
containing tbe alleged marriage certifi
cate. al?o a letter Cansdale bad written
bis wife; and a letter from the lady her
self to Mr. Heinz.
A casual plance at the certificate showed
at once that it was a forgery, and it is
remarkable that the Washington Mrs.
Cansdale, (as she supposed herself to be)
has not long ago discovered that she was
tbe victim o ceiver. She bad speci
mens ot bis handwriting before her and it
was so plainly identical with that on the
marriage certificate that it teems that
even tbe dullest persons must have no
ticed tbe similarity. Tbe Leader says:
That Mrs. Cansdale is delightfully ig
norant and unsophisticated is evident
from the letter Bhe wrote to County At
torney Heinz. There is har.l'y a word
spelled correctly in the entire missive, and
every line of its contents show the ver
dant simplicity of the writer. tShe says
she was married to Cansdale July 4. 1891.
in Oregon, and Cansdale told her arter
ward, she says, that the Rev. E. L
Sioue who nmrried them lived in Salem.
Oregon, and shp believed him. It didn't
make any difference to ber where be
Lved anjway. She believed she was
lawfully married. and that was
ail site cared about. "If he has
deceived me," says the trusting woman,
"be ought to be sent to tbe penitentiary,
and I hope be will be." If Cansdale had
no one to fear but his Washington wife
he would have been at liberty today. Mrs.
Ctnsriale siys that she now believes that
Cxnadale has aDoiher left banded wife,
like she and Mis-s Mary Stratton. in Co
lumbus, Ohio. There is no telling how
many wives tbe fellow has, but if bis ac
tions during the past year and a half
are any inrticatian of his previous career,
tbe wild west is full of Mrs. Cansdales.

This seems to be a bad year generally
for all kinds of vegetable delicacies that
grow on trees end vines. Like tbe fruit
crop the nut crop is almost a total fail
ure. There are no hazelnuts at all and
hickory nuts few. ard the walnut and
butternut crop is exceedingly slim. Hence
nutting parMe are not in vogue this year,
and the small boy is cheated out of the
best sports in the world. He and his lit

bave to do without an abundance of tbeir
luxury this winter.
