flavor of romance. A bridesmaid had
teen bespoken for a wedding. She was
taken ill before the time set, and at the
last moment was replaced by Miss
Louise Doelger, a pretty girl, but un
known in society. At the ceremony she
met Mr. Moses Rockwell Crow, a gen
tleman whose name would not reveal
the fact that he is the possessor of
000,000 and a sort of Monte Cristo in
Ms wav. It was a case of love at first
sight. Moses was captured by the fair
Lionise, and she, atter a suitaoie pereou
spent in meditation and prayer, con
sented to becomo Mrs. Crow. No one
could resist so lavish an adorer.
Mr. Crow lives among the swells of
Great Harrington, Mass., and gives din
ners and dances. lie is in the habit of
supplying watches set with diamonds as
favors in the germau. lie took his
fiancee out to ride the other day in the
finest brougham which money could buy,
drawn bv a iair of priceless horses,
