Per suit $ 5.00 A PITTSBURG MILLIONAIRE MARRIES TENDERLOIN GIRL A young Pittsburg millionaire who did not have anything else to do, married > Miss out of the Pickle District of Ne York city a few days ago, took her to his home and now his family is said to have disowned him. Charles P. Lipphart, president of the Vantine-Lipphart Com pany of 485 Penn avenue, Pittsburg, is tlie young man, and Miss Winifred Evans is the woman whom the Rev. Julius W. Geyer, of 78 Second street, made man and wife. Lipphart went to New York to see the sights, and having come into a fortune upon tile death of his father a few months ago, was well prepared to see ihe town. He chose the alley as his thor oughfare. and after registering at the Im pel ial started out for a short stroll. The lights were all ablaze, the streets were thronged with theater crowds, and to Lriphart's eye life seemed one long, sweet round of pleasure. He swelled with pride as he sauntered down the thoroughfare, robed in the height of Pittsburg fashion, and the young wom en of the alley skilled in the art of entie inng knew him straightway as a newcom er to the big metropolis. Quite by accident Lipphart who had just turned his twenty-seventh yeaç, brought up at Broadway and Twenty ninth street, and as he stood there watching the passing crowd a young woman with peachblow complexion came along. She stopped on the same corner. They ogled, smiled and flirted. A drink was suggested, and although the young woman said she didn't care much about it. she would consent,, if coaxed, to ac company her companion to a nearby re sort. They were soon on their way to a gilded, brightly lighted drinking par lor in Twenty-eighth stret. Lipphart thought his new found friend was the sweetest bit of femininty he had ever encountered. Under protest the young woman consented to sip an other of the long and cooling drinks, and after coming to an understanding they adjourned to Miss Evans' apartments at 143 West Thirty-sixth street. There the youth told of his love for Miss Evans, and in so many words informed Mrs. Manner, one of her friends, lie In tended to take the girl home as his bride. Mrs. Manner, having had one or two more or less unfortunate experiences in the matrimonial field, counseled conser vatism. suggesting that the young should wait until he found whether he and the young woman were suited to each other before they engaged a minister. The following dav Miss Evans, who was familiarly known as "Jennie, the Kid," took her friend to her home across the middle span, and there presented him to her mother, her uncles and other mem bers of the family. When Lipphart returned to New York lie went to Riccadonna's in Twenty seventh street, where Miss Yetta Dorf man, one of Miss Evans' companions, lived. A tab was called and the three started for the parson's home. On the way they picked up Louis Katz, who also accompanied them, and In tlie pres ence of these two they were made man annd wife. Two or three days later Lipphart took his bride to Pittsburg, and, according t> telegraphic advices from that town, his family who ave prominent in the social and financial world, refused to receive the young woman. A row followed and then came the report that the family had disowned him. Lipphart is worth a fortune in his own name, and as president of the Vantine Lipphart company is in receipt of a large income. Lipphart's father was one of the best known men of Pittsburg. He had been in business there for years. He went to New York about a year ago and at tended a performance at the Casino, I j ] Hotel Oxford Only first class house between Bil lings and Red Lodge.
