Fine Cycle Paths Are Costing Almost
Nothing—A Boom in Bicycling
This Year.
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Anaconda, May 13.—Wheeling is sure
to be a great fad in Anaconda this year,
and intereSt has no doubt been aug
mented by the organization of the Cycle
Path and Good Roads association, which
is now building a path for wheeling
between Anaconda and Gregson springs.
The new path has been completed
over half the distance, and by the end
of the week it is thought the men now
at work upon it will be very dose to
Gregson. .
A good many of the wheelmen went
out over the track yesterday, and some
went on through to the springs. Every
one pronounced the path as being first
class in every particular.
The building of the path has been an
inexpensive matter so far.

attendance at the Methodist church last
night. Rev. E. G. Cattermole preached

indorsing the action taken by Attorney
General Donovan and County Attorney
Duffy in the suppression of gambling
in this city, which were adopted by a
rising vote, about 500 standing on their
feet. Tlie résolutions adopted first take
up the evil of gambling, with its serious
effect upon public and private morals
in tlie attempt to get something for
nothing, and then commend in the
strongest terms the officials who are
doing their utmost to enforce the law.
The resolutions pledge the hearty sup
port of tlie church in the efforts to sup
press the evil.

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

known men of Pittsburg. He had been in
business there for years. He went to

occupying a box. During the perform

icr marriage was contemplating a return
