The good people of our neighboring borough, Fleasantville, were thrown into ft general state of indagirmtion and mystification by an announcement in the Courier of last Thursday, that their till then highly respected young townsman, C. A. Reese r, florist, bad ( procured a divorce at Prairie du (Jhien, in Wisconsion, in November last and that on the 22d of February he had married Miss Alice M. Good, of Cher ry Camp, West Virginia, That oar readers may have a clear understanding of this case, we will state that about nine years ago a well " known and highly esteemed Methodist ctorgyman by the name of Reese r was living in Tidioute, Fa., and his eon Charles then about twenty-one years of age, became married to a very re spectable girl about sixteen years of age. The union seemed to be a happy one. The young wife was entirely de voted to her husband. ' Soou after, " young Recser went to New York and engaged with the great floriculturist, Peter Henderson, to learu the busi- uess of growing plants, eto. Subse quently he went to North Adams. , Mass., -and engaged in the same busi ness there. A few years ago Mr. Ree- ser, Sr., bought a few acres of land of Mr. Brown, in Fleasantville, and in vited his son to make his home with him, and establish himself In his favor- , ite pursuit. The oiler was aocepted, and in the latter part of 1871 he erect ed those large hot houses for growing budding outplants and all the line of flowers usually found in suoh establish ments. His business flourished and became lucrative. His' sales of plants extended all over the country. His wife proved herself a help-mate in deod. She studied the whole business, and made herself familir with the rou tine of its affairs and devoted her lime and energies to the interest of her husband to such a degree that uo end of compliments were bestowed up on her as a model wife. During the winter of 1871-2, before any planh were grown for sale, and when money was very scarce with the new concern, she would make boqucts and bring them to Titusville aud look up custo mers for them. It is not known that any cloud ever - cast a shadow over the home of young Reeser and wife. They were blessed with a son a bright and promising lad. It has been said that Reeser was sub- . ject to peculiar moods, somewhat of a gloomy character, making him at times almost morose. lie would be extreme ly reticent to customers, only answer- . ing their questions with as few words as possible. But there was this pecu- - liaxty, he would write loug letters, ' and it is said they were remkable for their elegant diction, and it was this which finally caused his trouble. la the spring of 1872, among those who answered Lis advertisements, was a young lady by the name of Miss Alice M. Good, living at Cherry Camp, Harrison county, West Virginia. There was nothing peculiar about her order. In filling it however, Mr. Ree- . scr, as often was his custom, put in a few plants more than was called for. The recipient, who it seems is very fond of flowers, was delighted to find she had more than she had any expec tation of getting, and expressed her thanks to the florist for the present, and iudulged in some general reflec- . tions about the beauty of flowers, and , how delightful it must be to be en gaged in growing flowers and have them in abundance, etc., etc. To this letter Mr. Reeser replied at length, and a correspondence ensued, and Mr. . Reeser concluded that perhaps Miss Good could learn to love the flower . grower as well as the flowers. Why he should tire of his wife no one can tell, but he began at once to procure a divorce. His first step was to fee an infamous firm of divorce law yers of New York. He paid them - $150 to begin with, and tiO afterward. In Wisconsin divorces are readily ob tained where both parties are willing aud consent in writing. One day he presented bis wile a paper which he wished her to sign without knowing the contents. This she very properly declined to do. It was her marriage death warrant though she did not know it at the time. Who finally did o her name to the paper asking for 'orce is not yet known, but some ijimitted deliberate forgery, for divorce was duly entered Courts of Wisconsin, ait- Ju (Hiicu, November -I Rvoier hinted f. R, DUNN - to his wife that he had procured a di vorce; she could not believe it, but it annoyed her not a little. Her hus band continued to live with her, treat ed ber as usual her whole life was bound ud in him. and in her deen af fection he could not believe that she could be wronged or trifled with. In a short time her suspicions were aroused, and she was compelled to in vestigate what seemed to be impend ing to destroy her peace aud happi ness. Sometime in the winter Recser made a visit to West Virginia and on the 22d or 25th of February he was mar ried to Alice M. Good, daughter of the postmaster of Cherry Camp. To prove his right to marry, he exhibited his decree of divorce, and told so plausi ble a story ef his hard lot with his first wife, that it seemed to the family of his new wife that a divorce was the natural consequence. A bridal tour brought the parties to Erie where it is said he has kept her ever since except aa he took occasion al trips around the country. And in this way matters have gone on Reeser living with wife No. 1 at Fleasantville fbr the last few months with a piler'a- age to Erie to see wife No. 2 once or twice a month. He remarked to the writer, in April last, that ha thought of establishing a nursery in Erie. From somo correspondence which fell into the hands of wife No. 1, two Or three weeks ago, during the dual husband's absence, the . whole plot came out and she started at once for Cherry Camp, West Vireinia. where ehe supposed her trnant spouse to be. Mrs. Reeser No, 1 returned from her journey, and early last week Ree- er and wife No. 2nade their appear ance at fleasantville, and wife No. 1 ordered to leave the house. Father Reeser just then appeared to the par ties, and the old man Adam asstrted his supremacy, and he informad his son and wife No. 2 that if they did uk immediately leave he would shoot both of them. The old rentlimnn don't get mad or indulge in righteous luuiguauou unioss mere do proper provocation. But bis blood was up. Young Reeser immediately left. It was well he did. Had he remained over nieht, a coat of tar and feathers and a free ride on a rail would have shown bim that Fleasantville boys don't tolerate that kind of doings. Recser came to Titusvillo and took the cars for Corry Thursday morning, which is the last heard of him. His doeply injured wife has placed her case in the hands of Hon. M. C. Beebe, who will aot as her attorney in main taining her rights and bring the guilty parties to punishment. From all we can gather we do not kno that wife No. 2 was culpable in her part of the performance. Sho was probably a dupe to Reeser's artful designs. Ti tusville Herald. OBITUARY. Died, of congestion of the heart. near Mill Village, Erie Co., Pa.) July 23d, 1873, Mr. Samuel McCray, aged 68 years, 3 mouths and 16 days, lie appeared to be in unusual good health, had ealeu a very hearty dinner and went to too Held to assist in bringing in a load of hay, when he remarked that he had not felt so well for ten years. A moment afterwards he tot tered, but was supported in time to prevent bim from falling, and died while yet Btanding on his feet. Mr. McCray was formerly a resideut of V enango to., l a., where he raised a large family, but moved to Erie Co. in lsb-t acd settled in Le lioeuf township, taking the management of bis iurm while bis sons were in the South fighting the battles of our coun try. Alter the war they rotured home to relieve the aged veteran, of secular affairs aud the toils of life. Being thus relieved, he and the companion of his bosom oft revisited their for mer home and distant friends. Peace and happiness seemed to sit on their aged brows, and "not a wave of trou ble rolled across their peaceful breasts." But earthly happiuess is short in its duration, for Mrs. McCray, after a lingering sickness, was called o her reward above on the 21st of June 1872, and left Father McCray to name wiin the lonely path ot lite; but to him it was nut lonesome, for he had the lamp of life with him which was lit up by a name of heavenly love almost a half a century ago, und it seemed to be his chief business to keep it burning, t ontically be was a Re publican.
