AN ANACONDA TRAGEDY SThe Sad Story of Mary Venir and Her Boy Husband. SIN, MISERY AND DEATH Weaved Into the Web of a Child's Life. An Empty Cradle-Deserted Be cause Another Babe Was to Be Born. Anaconda has its tragedies, the same ~s any other city in the land. The tst.ory. of Mary Venir is the story of one .9f them. It is a much sadder story ,than one reads each day in the year, ,nd there is much in it too dreadful 'to write. Mary Venir is 16 years old, "'A'wife and the mother of two children, 'p e of whom is living and one dead. , ,fary Venir used to be Mary Harring 7, on before she married Henry Venir. t'he married him six months ago, and ,se is only 19 years old now. The sec ,oad babe was born a month after the "'d arr .t. But that comes later in T"'.here are many persons, particular in the law fraternity of Anaconda, ho remember 'the sentencing of a n named Rose, about four years hago, to a term of 25 years in the pen .fentiary for the crime of criminal as sault on Mary Harrington, who then 's:; ·· sars old. The man ,is now ,.lisitwn-o the prison at Deer Lodge, arid it is said that a petition for his p.,Dardonn is being circulated and already has secured upward of 350 signatures. ,There are said to be mitigating cir indmstances weaved in with the com 'mission of the crime. It is hard to believe in mitigating circumstances w.' .hen the girl who is outraged is only '12 years Old. EVidently the judge 'who sentenced Rose to what is practi catlly a life term in the penitentiary took the same view of the crime, for it is said among the legal men of the city that the trial brought out the fact that no violence was used in the commission of the terrible offense; in harsher words, that the girl was an unresisting party to the crime. As the story of Mary Harrington is being writ ten from the middle of the book, this may be considered as chapter 1 in her life. Then there is a skip of four years, and chapter 2 begins with Mary Har rington's marriage to Henry Venir. He is a Frenchman. Some say his mar riage was forced, some say it was not. However that may be, the babe was born one month after they became man and wife. Mrs. Baird came into the life of :Mary Venir two months ago. when the child wife was grieving and crying over an 'empty cradle. That was Just after Death had come into the little cabin opposite the foundry and carried away the second babe. You may find, once in a while in this dreary world, a wo man who is so very evil in her soul that wise men call her an unregener ate; and very much oftener you will come across a man of the same stamp, especially if the life you live leads you to rub elbows.wil.tthe worltdt But the Kind Providence.that w tehas ovtr the well being of all the children of the earth and regulates Sorrow and. Joy has decreed that almost never shall you find a woman so hopelessly sunk in the virtueless depths that she will not mourn over the empty cradle, whence Death has stolen her child. It was when Mary Venir was look ing wet-eyed into the empty cradle that Mrs. Baird came into her life. That was good for Mary Venir; for the heart of a child-mother may be very wrong because she has never been taught, but never so hard that a wom an's sympathy and a woman's kindness will not help. Some things that seem wasted are not. Mrs. Baird is a Frenchwoman, a phy siclan and a nurse. She is not plump, but she has rosy cheeks and blue eyes and yellow hair. One needs only to look into her face to know that she is kind. Together with her son she came to Anaconda three months ago and took a house adjoining the cabin where the Venirs were living, opposite the foundry. There are no other houses in that immediate neighborhood. The rest of this story is told as it was gotten from the lips of Mrs. Baird. Mllis. Baird had a patient in her house; a woman. Soon after they moved into the house on Sixth street a child was born to this woman. You will remem her that Mary Venir's babe had just died. When Mary Venir heard there was a new baby next door, she could not resist the temptation of asking to see it, so Mrs. Baird let her in. That was how Mrs. Baird came into the life of Mary Vcnir. For all her misery and lter sin, Mary Venir's face was sweet. And then, she was only 16 years old, and a mother. Mrs. Baird liked the poor girl from the start. She could not help thinking of the dead baby and the empty cradle next door. So when Mary Venir told the French woman that she was tired to death of living in the cabin adjoining, where there ivtre so many men who were al sxays getting drunk and quarreling, and asked that inasmuch as Mrs. Baird was about to move to a larger house In a tetter part of the city, might not sh. and her husband go and live with them, Mrs. Baird considered and said yes. 1-ut first the girl's husband was con suited, and he said he would be very glad for the change of surroundings and he knew no reason why they should not go and live to.ether. He was 19 years old. iThat same day the Balrds moved, and the Venirs moved with them, leaving Mary Venir's uncle and the quarrel some men to keep house for themselves in the sq'ualld cabin opoosite the foundry. Mrs. Baird paid the expense of moving the Venirs' household goods, which were poor enough. She was to be repaid on the 7th. pay day. It was not more than a few days after they had taken the new house that Mrs. Baird was awakened in the middle of the night by strange sounds coming from the room where were sleeping the Venirs. She listened and recognized the voice of Mrs. Venir seemingly calling in delirium. Then Mrs. Baird went to the girl and found her in a terrible fever. Pneumonia. The French woman nursed her well, which was morte of a feat because the patient was with child. Soon after her recovery. Mary Venir's husband said he must go to a place (he did not say what place) about 10 miles out of town to assist` in putting up a stack for the compgny. He was employed at the works. He said he would be gone four days, or possibly a little longer, and that he would be paid $4 a day for his work. He cau sltined Mrs. Baird to take the best care of his wife, and promised to repay her loan on pay day. That was the last of Henry Venlr; except that once since then he has been seen on Commercial avenue, try ing to sell a load of wood. When Mary Venir found out that her boy husband had deserted her she threw herself down on the floor and screamed. The people gathered on the pavement outside and wondered what was the trouble. It required all the strength and persuasion of Mrs. Baird and her son to qtiiet the girl. But finally they succeeded. Then Mary Venir look to strange tricks. She littered her room with laboriously penned letters. purporting to come to her from her-husband, and she put them in old envelopes and took them to her parents and to Mrs. Baird, saying they had come from the hus band who had deserted her. They were very queer letters indeed. Then she began telling many lies, which were not found out till after \ward, together with other things. But Mrs. Baird believes one thing which the child Wife told her. She said: "When Henr" and me was mar ried he said he'd be a father to the one baby, but he'd never stand fer another." You will remember that when Mary Venir was ill with pneumonia she was with child. That seems to explain the desertion. A little while ago several charitable women heard of "the Venir case." And that is why Mary Venir is now in the Home of the Good Shepherd in Helena, where she is to remain until she be comes 21. Don't Miss It.

AMUSEMENTS. "A Lady of QuaUty." When Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote her now famous novel. "A Lady of Quality," she drew a beautiful character of a glorious woman in the person of Mistress Clorinda. In following the story of this wonderful creation of na ture from her early childhood to the time of her retirement to the bosom of her family one cannot help feeling that to worship at her shrine would be an honor. The story has lost none of Its attractive ness by the dramatization of Stephen Townsend. who, has, if possible, added to the charming settings of the author ess. The actress who brings the trials and tribulations of the wonderful child-wo man to our hearts and sympathies ts fully equal to the effect and cannot help but add to her many triumphs fresh lau rels by her powerful and beautiful ren dering of the part she assumes. Eugenice Blair has, by her own efforts, brought herself to the front rank. being now ac knowledged the leading emotional actress of the century. Miss Blair and her com. pany of excellent players will be seen at the Margaret theater on Monday evening in an elaborate production of the play. Her bdauty, grace and accomplishments have made her one of the marked suc ceases of the day, while her charm and grace as a woman, as well as an actress, enshrines her in the hearts of tA. tiea ter-loving world. The character of Mistress Ciorinda gives her ample scope for the display of those perfections with which she is gift ed. Having an artistic soul and a nat ural appreciation of the beautiful, she has been able to stage the production with a master hand. All during the long summer months Ernest Albert, the well known scenic artist of the Fifth Avenue theater. New York, worked diligently on the settings under the personal supervi ston of Miss Blair. Eaot set is a work of art. The colonial hall at Wildairs of the first act shows in detail the splendor of an ancient English country home. This is by no means the chief scene, as the rose garden, in which the second act is given, is a dream of loveliness. Never In the history of the stage has a similar saene been attempted with such perfec tion and attention to effect. As the cur tain arises the odor of American Beauties perfumes the theater and roses, faom lbuds to large, blooming American Beau ties are seen in profusion. The artist again shows his ability for effects in the panel parlor scene of the third act. It is during this act that Sir John Oxon, who has been persecuting Mistress Clorlnda, is killed. The stage represents an octan gular room finished in white and gold. In the rear large panel doors open into a wide hallway, and on the side the rose garden can be seen through the windows opening on the veranda. The furniture is in keeping with the other furnishings of the time. The costumes worn in the play were designed by Miss Blair and made prin cipally by Eaves of New York and Van Horne of Phlladelphia. Those of the star surpass in grandeur any that she has ever appeared in. IIer reputation for wearing handsome gowns Is familiar from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Those worn in "A Lady of Quality" are In keeping with her excellent taste and are the envy of the female part of her audiences and the admiration of the opposite sex. All the costumes and scenery used in the production are new tills season, it be ing a rule of Miss Blair not to use nor permit any member of her company to use anything that has done service during a previous season. "Brown's In Town." Regarding "Brown's in Town," which comes to the Margaret theater Jan. 3, the San Francisco Chronicle says: "If 'Brown's in Town' had been played st the old farce-comedy prices we should not have accepted it. It is a plece which has been touring the country; but really tit is very well up to the Broad htitu r.roductions, even with more farce spl!rlt. The author Is Mark E. Swan. a young man who plays the leading iart. It is worth while inotJng the name, for this play Is clever enough to promise its young author a more important future. 'Brown's in 'own' was presented before a crowded house last night at'the Ca!l forna theater, and it was heartily en. joyed. There is no buffoonery in it. It !: a very clever farce plot, carried out with unusual skill and acted with decided talent by as compact and agreeable a lit tle company as we have had In that kind of play. The complications are humor ous, the lines carry them with dash ana with no inconsiderable display of wit. There are some songs and specialties, but they are only accessory, and they are clever enough and In good enough taste to be enjoyed for the performance of them. "Charles Horne is the father; and it is as genuine a legitimate presentation of farce as has been seen in a long time. The two young men are capitally done. in a gentlemanly and altogether refined way, by Mr. Swan and Webster Cullison, and a bit of extravagant dude is given in the same vein. The ladies are equally good. Maud Knowlton is a San Franelisco girl, and she is likely to be another prom inent success in more important com panies. She is not only pretty, with a lithe figure, but has personal magnetism. She is reminiscent of Phoebe Davies in style, but more decidedly a comedienne. She does everything gracefully and nat urally. A dainty little girl is Jessie Mae Hall. with a delightfully sweet voice and much musical ability. The German girl of Monica Lee is also a notable feature, and Fanny Midgely as Pri rose is exC cellent. In fact, 'Brown's In Town' Is se far above the last show at the California theater that it deserves special acknowl edgment" SWIFT TRIP TO THE JAIL Thomas Fean Begins to Serve His Sentenoe All Too Soon. STOLE A PAIR OF SHOES Is Caught, Tried and Sentenced to 81x Months in Jail, All Within Half an Hour of the Commiseion or the Crime. Thomas Fean's looks were against him when he came up before Judge Kennedy in the police court yesterday afternoon. He was a Bowery boy if there ever was one. In the northwest corner of his mouth was a cigar of the Front street brand. It stuck up at an impudent angle. Mr. Fean's whole attitude carried plainly the mes sage that he did not give a good - - for any old man or any old court on earth. Just before his appearance in court Mr. Fean had appropriated a pair of shoes that belonged to the Goodfriend Clothing company. They had been ex posed to view In front of the store and had looked good to Mr. Fean. He had gathered them to himself and started to run. Sig. Goodfriend is some what of a sprinter himself. He, with Fred Woodworth, pursued the shoe swiper and caught him. They turned him over to Officer Sullivan, who sap peared on the scene about that time. Mr. Fean announced that he was ready for .trial at once. Accordingly he was immediately haled before the Do lice court, where he pleaded not guilty to the charge of petit larceny. Mr. Goodfriend and Mr. Woodworth told their stories and the defendant cross examined them in his own peculiar fashion without doing his case any good. When found guilty Fean de clined to take the statutory time for the passing of sentence. The face of Judge Kennedy became longer and longer as the -trial proceeded and at its termination was not a beautiful sight to look upon. "Six months in the county jail." That was the sentence that was passed, and within half an hour of the commission of the offence Fean entered upon the serving of the. sentence. Con Walsh was in an ugly mood last night and objected to the conduct of the house kept by Mrs. Maroney on Park avenue, wherein he boards. Ac cordingly he smashed a window or two and incidentally broke in a door. Mrs. Maroney notified Night Chief of Police O'Brien, who put the offender under arrest on the charge of disturbing the peace. Erick Isosin hbled him to the All Na tions saloon last evening when he had upon him a jag that was larger than a respectable man should carry. There he conducted himself in a noisy and in decent manner and made himself par ticularly offensive to Mrs. Joe Burra, the wife of 'the proprietor. Night Chief of Police O'Brien took him into custody and he will answer to the charge in the police court to-day. Mike McNeft conducted himself in an ungentlemanly manner on Park avenue last night and for his disregard of the laws of decency and the city ordi nances in such cases made and provid ed was ihcarcerated in the City jail by Night Chief of Police O'Brien.
