Some, I know, will recognize it. My wife and I were married on October 14, 1892. 1 bought a cottage on South Topeka avenue in what was once Ormes & Phillips' addition, which we were to oc cupy when we returned from the World's Pair at Chicago. And returning "We had occupied it for three days when this circumstance occurred. Late in No vember our house was robbed. A dia mond brooch, a ruby finger ring and a secklaco of pearls, all wedding gifts, were taken from a small jewel box on the dress-r. Three diamond rings were left. I notified tho police, who at once had n cle w, which, by the way, never panned out. The next night my wife was natur ally restive, and in the morning hours she ijudyi-d me awake and whispered that somf-oody was in the room. To re assure hr-r, and knowing that her imagin ation was playing its usual sorry game, I jumped from the bed and walked, hur ried! -ihout tho room saying that It was r-thin. Something fell in the room In the front. I rushed forward and saw a form in the front door. I dashed into it wildly and bore the intruder to the floor All I distinctly remember is two woir- n screaming wildly, my wife and nnoth. r. w hom I realized vaguely I was hold. .- ;o the floor. I cried to my wife to q 't '-x rr-aming and light a lamp, which she marifigpd to do, while I dragged my hurp '-ir to the room. When she saw the 1i:r;-', -r my wife at once recovered, and I re'- .pfd my captive.

"Minld.ni," I said, solemnly, "You will My wife, to my annoyance, quickly as sented. I stopped the horse. The woman alighted, took the basket and disappeared In a two-story house smothered in a patch of dried sunflowers. I drove away considerably put out. My wife that night exercised a certain decision in her wishes and actions that was unusual with her. I could not understand why she had not allowed me to investigate. The next even ing my wife with the same decision, asked me to drive her down the Schweiter road. She took a basket along. I thought I was going to get at the bottom of the I puzzzle at last. But when we reached , the house my wife placed the basket on ' the front porch, got' back into the buggy : and said: "Drive home." I I did so. AH during the winter, once a j day, we made that journey with a ! basket. I I finally grew weary of asking my wife for explanations, or requesting that we i stop in and visit with our beautiful friend whom we never saw. It was a hard winter In Wichita; a hard winter on top of hard times. I watched curiously that old house in the sunflowers disap- j pear. The fence disappeared first, then i the front porch, then the weatherboard- ing on the upper stories. It was not a ) strange proceeding in the suburbs that ; winter. The Inmates were burning the I house from around their heads to keep themselves warm. They were not renting it were simply Intruders. One day we found the basket we had delivered the previous day on the porch, the front door open, the house vacant. My wife steadily refused to talk about the case. In 1S06 her pure soul passed from me. On May 30, 1S97, the dark wo man of the old days knocked at my front door. A moment later we were seated in the drawing room of my home. I was at last to have the almost forgotten mystery solved.' "He is dead," she said. "My wife Is dead," I said. "She never told me about him." The woman looked long at me. I thought I detected surprise. "I have come," she said, "today to place some flowers on her grave. Will you guide me to it?" I did. In May, !S93, tho woman I had thrown to the floor for a burglar be came my wife. She bore the surname which had been my wife's before she married me. But she never told me the story of her life, "or anything, except that her husband had died and that she was a widow. I never pressed her for an explanation. We held the past to be dead, and did not violate it. In 1S93 she died. I have come upon an explanation of the mystery of my life which satisfies me sometimes. It is this: My wife must have had a dissolute brother, a fact I could never learn positively; he married the dark woman. He did not support her. My first wife came Into knowledge of this fact and gave him the jewels to save them from starvation. His proud spirited wife returned them as we have seen. I say this explanation sometimes satis fies me. And sometimes it does not. IS A The wisdom of pennies appliejust as pertinently to dollars.

With all its claims to public generos ity and large charities, America is behind Europe in at lea- one methoa of dis pensing aid to tho needy. That is in bequests for the assistance of young couples who wish to marry, but are financially unable to do so. In' Germany prizes are offered for the marriage of the ugliest girl, the most crippled girl and the wrcnen over 40 who have been more than once jilted by lovers. It is not to be expected that this form of financial benefit will ever be required in such a land of noble women as ours, but uiero are doubtless many young couples who would like" to see es tablished some bequest for providing house furnishing money for hard work ing but small salaried lovers. Great Britain is far in the leacL in put ting such a prizo on matrimony. The la to Marquis of Bute, a millionaire, es I tablished a fund for the benefit of the women of Cardiff, In Wales. To som memorate his silver wedding In ISO? he presented the town authorities with $5,000 to be held as a trust fund, the interest from it each year to bo paid to whatever pair of Cardiff jovers could satisfy the trustees tnat they were the most in need of the fund to help them establish a home.

Under these, terms each year three British maidens are presented with $100. In France, where the marriage of con venience and the natural inclinations of the population make matrimony and the birth rate matters for careful considera tion for the state, a society has ben or ganied along the lines of a building and loan association by which a man or wo man can securo at small expense enough money to enable him or hr to marry. It is a sort of Insurance society, con ducted hy a number of persons, of whom M. Paul Deschanel is at present the head. The members are artisans, young men or women, and each contributes 40 cents a month to its support. After a member has made such contribution for Ave years in which time ho has paid $21. he Is enti tled to draw out 90. If two members desire to wed each other they can thus get J1S0, which Is something of a wind fall as doweries go among French work ing people. But in Germany the matter has its most unique development, for there, by the will of a financier, pries are offered In his native town for the man who will marry the ugliest, the most crippled, and the woman over 40. This town is Haschmann and the financier, realizing that beauty is an attraction hard to overcome, provides that out of the income of the fnnd not less than $90 shall go with the-ugliest girl in any year, and the cripple shall receive $68.

The name of Sackvllle is figuring in strange investigations which are occupying tho attention of the court. A local lawyer has applied to the courts to recognize the legitmacy of a client, who claims to bo the son of a certain "Lord Sackvllle" secretary of legation at Madrid about the year 1S5S. Tho claim ant alleges that tho displomatist mar ried a well known Spanish dancer, Pepita addicted to excessive cigarette smoking and was therefore unable to give a clear version of tho kidnapping. Chief Donahue swore to Callahan's ar rest and statement that he could prove an alibi. Court then adjourned until 2 o'clock to await tho result of Callahan's illness. When court convened this afternoon .Callahan was still in a nervous state and few witnesses were examined. Their testimony was a repetition of that given at the first trial. P. J. McGrath, who accompanied Mr. Cudahy tho night be deposited tho money in the Center street road, was recalled and reviewed that trip. Callahan's illness began with a nervous chill.
