Henry of Battenberg, at St Mildred's Church,

of Windsor performed the ceremony, assisted
by a number of other high dignataries of the
Church of England.
The 93d Highlanders guarded the approaches
to the church, while the road traversed by the
procession was lined by volunteers. The bridal
procession started from the palace at 1:15.

Princess Beatrice is in her 29th year. She is
a tall, light-haired, plain-featured woman, but
is highly educated, and has gained some repu
tation as an artist. Quite a number of times

for matrimony, and there has been no lack of
impecunious Princes who have desired to get
hold of tho plethoric pursestrings of the Eng
lish people through an alliance with her. At

tho Prince Imperial of France, but the death
of that gallant youug soldier in tho Zulu war
put an end to that scheme. Among the other
candidates for the large fortune and the annuity
which tho British Parliament always attaches
to the numerous progeny of Victoria wero
Prince Oscar of Sweden, Amadeo of Spain, and
Louis of Batfenberg, elder brother of the groom.

Batteuberg, is one of the numerous petty Ger
man Princes, and has neither money nor power
to bolster up his title. His pay as an officer in

an indulgent father adds an annual allowance
of $250, thus bringing up the yearly income of
the young man to the handsome sum of $G50.

plained of sickuess, aud asked tho Chief Engi
neer to excuso him from duty. His chief re
fused aud compelled him to go to work. Eck
stedt worked for about half an hour longer be
fore tho hot furnace, when he threw down his
shovel and crept into his bunk. Tho Engineer
reported him to the Captain, who told the Sur
geon to see if there was anything the matter
with tho man. The Surgeon, upon examina
tion, said that from all appearances tho stoker
was well and able to do his work. Upon this
he was thrown into the punishment xoom. He
pleaded for medicine, but the doctor turned a
deaf car to his appeals. For two hours ho re
mained in the dark hole. When tho steward
visited him and asked him if ho would go to
work, he replied that ho could not, that he
was nob able. An hour later, ou the cell being
again visited, the unhappy man was found
hanged. Tho body was cat down, but the Cap
tain thought it best, under the circumstances,
not to bury it at sea. It was therefore packed
in ice and carried to Hoboken, whero a burial
permit was granted. Tho suicide leaves a wifo
and four small children in Stockholm, whero
ho lived.
A Ifew Slni f Potato Big.
Connecticut farmers are becoming alarmed
on account of a new kind of potato beetle which
hasjust made its appearance indifferent parts
of that State. For several years tho Colorado
beetle has been an enemy which "potato raisers
have been obliged to fight with parisgreen and
other poisonous substances sprinkled on the
vines from the time the young shoots first ap
peared nntil after the plants had blossomed.
The battle has been a constant one, and this
season planters seemed to havo gained suprem
acy, as the ravages of tho beetle havo been
much less destructive than for seven years
before. The new enemy first appeared in
Hartford on the 20-acre patch of Dr. J. M.
Biggs, and now there are reports of ravages by
tho samo insects at Green's farm aud at North
Bridgeport. The bugs are wholly unlike the

formed him that her traveling expenses had

father leave you $1,000? " asked Soldey. " He
never had 1,000 pennies," replied tho girl.
"Well, wait a moment," said the fellow, "and
I'll bo back." Pearl waited several hours, but
Abraham came not, and finally tho poor girl,
who was without money or friends, stated her
story to a Castle Garden detective, who, afior
seeing her in a place of safety, arrested tho
mercenary lover, who will languish in prison
until an understanding can bo arrived at.

Brooklyn Bridge. When he reached thobuild
ing in which he was employed he found himself
unable to mount tho stairs. An ambulanco was
summoned, and he was carried to tho New York
Hospital, where his case was pronounced to bo
paralysis. A closer examination, however,
revealed tho strange fact that a clot of blood
had choked up one of the arteries in the limb,
and that gaugreno had set in below tho point of
stoppage. It was found necessary to amputate
tho limb as soon as tho exact point whero tho
gangrene lay could bo located. Similar cases

has yet been discovered.

Jacob Schatz was tho victim of a wirious ac
cident at an ice pond a short distance from

Bauk, whojvas recently convicted and sen
tenced to lO'years' imprisonment in tho Auburn
Stato Prison for irregularities, has been as
signed to employment iu the prison shoe shop.

lamp wa3 also presented to him, but the prison
authorities did not allow him to keep it on ac
count of tho room it took up in tho cell, and a
small bracket lamp has been substituted. In

allowed a visit of half an hour's duration with
friends. Business visits aro allowed as often as
may bo necessary. Fish is treated precisoly as
any other convict of equal ago and health.
