She tore- tba shroud from the corpse and tried to pour rum down lit throat She delayed the funeral procession by titling on, the coffin aod refusing to have it retnov ed. Tbe united strength ol three men was necessary to keep ber from jumping Into tbe grave after the ooffin. One It curlout to know bow long tbit woman had been mar ried. Tbe deceased was a tailor, but the proverb must be false. No ninth part of a man was aver to mourned lot by aoy wid ow. John Hodge is the somewhat romaoltc name of a man wbo la nevertheless tbe hero of a very pretty little romance in real life. John was a farm laborer In Dorest county, England, and worked 00 a farm tbat was ; d by a tbrilty widow. Tbe other la berert 00 tbe farm determined to make John, who was regarded as about half wits ted, tbe butt of a practical joke; so they persuaded bfm tbat it would be aa extreme. ly good thing for blm to marry tha widow. He was easily convinced, and they there upon told blm tbat the only thing necessary was to bave tha bane published at tba village ohnrcb. He did to on tbe fallowing Bab bath, and eo tbe next day tba widow, to her Intense Indignation, heard of tbe fact She ieot for John, who confessed without hesitation, but avowed bis Innocence of aoy wilful treogresslon. Tbeo ha attempted to retire from her pretence, but tha atopped blm aod said that to avoid aoy farther scandal, tba bad determloed that he mntt marry her. Hodge was willing and ho it now tbe master of tbe men wbo sought to make blm the vlotlm of a cruel joke.

On Tuesday be was call ed on hy Mrs. Ramage No. 1, wbo had Irav eled all the way from Sbarpsville to Erie, 00 purpose.
