Story of a Wichitan and
n ufe:s Myslery,
The Eagle is in receipt of the fol
lowing; To the Editor of the Easle:
voting: in your paper an article entitled,
"A Wichita Romance," a story purpotingr
to contain facts and an. expressed desire
that there may be a Wichita environment
to contributed stories, I wish to relate
this. 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

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

I re'- .pfd my captive. She stood in the

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.

PRIZES TO MEN WHO. WED UGLY.
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.

SACKSVILLE CLAIMS HIS OWN
Strange Investigation Is Going On in
Spanish Royal Circles.
Madrid. Nov. 1. 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. He became much excited when
