A Dutch Veddins:.
A'l marriages are mide in Heaven so the adage runs hut the Democrat tells of one that was made in Chicago which is a very different place indeed. In the family of a very respectabla citi zen of thi3 place, lived, as a servant, a young and pretty Swiss girl, who was en gaged in marriage to a lover of hers who is at present in St. Louis, and with whom she kept up a constant correspondence. A few days since Katrine fell ill, and her kind em ployers pent her to bed, employed a physi cian, and used every exertion to restore her to health and happiness -for her disease seemed to be as much a fever of the mind as of the body. At the end of four days the doctor pronounced the patient well, and. much against her will, compelled her to tit down to some sewing. Watching her op portunity, Katrine escaped from the house, and fled to that of a neighbor, into whose bed she crept, and where she remained, deaf to all expostulations and entreaties, for three days longer. At length her entertainer lot all patience, and procured an order for her removal to the Hospital. Armed with this document, she was returning to. her home, when she met an acquaintance, a German, who had the day before buried his wife, and who bad three small children thus left moth erless. Into his sympathetic ear the lady poured her story of her unwelcome visitor, and asked him to come along with her and help send Miss Katrine to t.e hospital. But on arriving at the house where Kat rine lay, her youth and beauty struck the fancy of the susceptible widower, and his heart mehed within him. A conversation enued, at the end of which the widower intimated his willingness to heal his bruised affections by the smiles and caresses of an other spouse. 'Will you do it?" exclaimed Katrine, springing from the bed. "Do you like me? Look at me. Do you like me ?" The widowed spouse did likelier but eo much eagerness rather shocked him, and he prudently resolved to sleep over it. He announced his determination ; said he would return in the morning if lie deciiied lo again commit matrimony, and departed, leaving the fair Katrine plunged into the deepest despondency and doubt and a feath er bed. But in the morning the reckless man re turned, whom one marriage had not made wise, and without much circumlocution de clared himself ready to wed again. Rat line joyfully embraced him and his offers, rose, donned her robes, and at once set forth with him lo lm domicil, where immediately the twain were made one flesh.
