WEDDING BELLS. Nuptials of Two Popular Teachers of the Center School District, Waterbury. Waterbury, July 24. There was a brll llant wedding at the Church of the Im maculate Conception at noon to-day. The contracting parties were Principal Bernard H. Fitzpatrick and Assistant Principal Miss Matilda L. Walsh of the Clay street school. Rev. J. A. Mulcahy officiated. The church was crowded to the doors. The groom and best man arrived first and occupied seats in the front pew. Then the bridesmaids en- tred and passed up through the side aisles. When the bride arrived at the main entrance leaning on the arm of her father, the organ pealed forth the wedding march, and the maids walked down the main aisle, and escorted the bride to the altar, where her father gave-ier -away. The groomsman was Postmaster Daniel E. Fitzpatrick and the maid of honor . was Miss Minnie Walsh, brother and sister of the newly married couple. The bride was cos tumed in a gown of white moire, trimmed with duchess lace and carried a bouquet of white roses and maiden hair ferns. The maid of honor was at' tired in white brocaded silk, and wore a coronet of white roses. She carried a boquet of sweet peas. The brides. maids were the Misses Alice Fitzpatrick and Katherine Buckley, in blue silk Agnes Buckley and Josephine Fitzpat rick, pink silk; Margery Fitzpatrick and Lizzie Walsh, white silk. The ush ers were Assistant Postmaster John T. Boylan, Attorney Frank P. Bretl Joseph T. Smith, C. A. Jackson and James Fitzpatrick. A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Walsh, 149 South Elm street. Mr. and Mrs. Fitzpatrick left this afternoon for a weding trip to the White Mountains and Canada. On their return they will reside at 53 Park Place. The home of the bride was literally strewn with valuable and cost ty presents. The groom's present to the bride was a star set with diamonds. Oxford and Tale. From the Montreal (Canada) Witness. It is the unexpected that arrives, The Americans are supposed to be light er in weight and more agile than their British cousins, while the English are supposed to be stronger and of greater endurance. Yet the Oxford students in the international athletic contests won all the races and tied for the high Jump, while the Americans won all the putting and casting of weights and won the broad Jump. In other words, the En glish students were most agile, while the American students were strongest. The English won the tournament, and with an event, or at least half an event, to spare. - But it must be remembered that they .were on their own ground, which is always an advantage, and the Americans had made a sea voyage, which has -always has some disadvan tageous effect.' The Americans, how ever, were In good form, as the results of their ' practice in England showed, and they declare that they have .been magnificently welcomed and treated. Late Arrivals.

Letter Carrier Fred IngtMia In the Tolls for Taking Money Out of Letters A Had Case of Departure From Keetitude. . Quite a sensation was created yester day, and much rrgret was expressed on all sides, over the and newt that Letter Carrier Fred Iiighiun, one of the best known and trusted letter carriers of this city, hod been arrested, charged with rubbing the United States malls, Mr, lugham bat heretofore borne good chaiauter and bus hud many staunch friends, buiug of a kiudly, genial and friendly nature, aud a guy, aocomuio- dutiug, as well us efficient, public serv aut. There was much surprise lu the poHtollice when the news came out. For several weeks past there bare beeu oomplaluU from people living lu the territory through wlilou Ingham de livers and collects letters. These coin plaint were received by Postmaster Beach. Most of the oompluluaut have been persons who claimed to have seut letters containing money which had not been received by the persons to whom they were addressed. Postmaster lleacb wrote Inspector Boyuton of Boston, who 1 In charge of this district, aud Tuesday evening in spector Parhan arrived here deter mined to ascertain the cause of the trouble. There were circumstances which pointed to the ooucluston that the street boxes were being robbed. There were some suspicions that they were being robbed by Carrier Ingham. Inspector Parhan was acquainted with these olr- cutnstances aud suspicions and Imme diately set to work ferretting out tne cause of the trouble. After having Ingham pointed out to him, aud learulug the looatlon of the boxes ou bis route, Inspeotor Parhan prepared a "test" letter. This letter was addressed to the Chicago Portrait company, and m it was enolosed marked t'i bill. Iugham's route in cludes a part of Howard avenue and Columbus avenue. Rosette, Washington aud Button streets. The letter was dropped into the box at the corner of Hurlburt and Rosette streets. Inspector Parhan waited around the vicinity of the box until Ingham col lected the mall, then opened the box to see if the letter had been taken. Ing ham had taken the letter all right, but when he turned in his collection to be sorted it could not be found. It was evident that the trouble had been , located. When Ingham came In Superintendent of Letter Carriers Rowe told him that Postmaster Beach wanted him, and he was taken Into private room in the postofflce building. Ingham put on a bold front and ex pressed the opinion that-he was being outrageously treated.' He was asked point blank by the Inspector if he had taken any letters from the boxes. He indignantly denied ever having done anything of the kind. He was then ask ed to turn out the contents of his pock ets. Keeping up the bluff, he said he was perfectly willing to do this, and turned out the pockets of his ooat and vest. This was all, he said, but the in- spector was not satisfied -with that. and proceeded to search him. In the hip pocket of his trousers was found the envelope of the "test" letter, Inspector Parhan questioned iilm about this, and then he broke down completely, admitting his guilt In this pocket, also,' was found the wrapper of a small box of which Inquiry had been made at the local office, the box never having reached its destination. Mr. Ingham resides at 208 Edgewood avenue. He began duty in the postof flce service as a carrier in .1868 In Mr. Sperry's first term, and served In that line until the administration of B. R. English, when he, with several other employes, was discharged. When Mr. Sperry came into the postofflce for the second time in 1890, Ingham, was ap pointed temporary Janitor, and on May 14 of that year was appointed carrier, having taken a civil service examina tion, and has remained until the pres ent time. When Mr. Ingham was re moved by MY. English, it was under stood to have been the cause, although no charges were preferred. There was considerable opposition that arose from his removal among his republican friends. There have been only two or three letters missing from Ingham's route and the loss of money above that which was taken to-day, is not over $3. The letter that was sent by the Inspector was mailed in a box on Rosette street Ingham was arrested by Deputy Mar shal Loverldge and was arraigned be fore United States Commissioner Wright in the afternoon, but waived examination. The bond was fixed at $500. The penalty for stealing a letter from the mails is from one to Ave years' imprisonment. ' Ingham was taken to Jail, where he exhibited signs of great mental dis tress, expressing tne deepest sorrow and concern in behalf of his wife and family, on whom the blow falls with crushing effect. Postmaster Beach, in speaking . of Ingham, said that he had always con sidered him an efficient carrier, and that he felt very sorry that he had fallen after so many years of service In the department LETT A FORTUNE.
