Several years ago, in Monroe Iowa, lived a prosperous id well to do merchant, father of pretty daughter, Cora Sly, who ' learned to look with admira ou the manly form of J. C. her playmate from child Although Ward was an lligentand refined young man rod family and fairly well located, this growing attach was looked upon with dis favor by her parents and precau ions were taken to keep them But Ward was not easily liscouraged and would not be affled in his attempts to secure prize so desirable, and in 1885 'hen the bells were ringing out the merry chimes of Christmas ive they became man and wife id it seemed that all their cares ere past and their future bright nil happy. He was just 21 years ''age and his wife about four fears younger. For fifteen moaths all went well, but in that pme an estrangement seemed to spring up. 1 hey were both young and a growing suspicion arose in toe minds of each that perhaps J,toej bad made a mistake. This together with the lact? that she had left a comfortable home, [and that he was slightly intern Sperate. tended to widon the grow IDf. breach, so that she was easily Persuaded to accompany her par ents who were about to locate in ansas. Tne parting was touch 'D,/or lhere still burned a spark 0 theold affection which prompt ed each to declare the intention 'o never again marry. From | Kansas, whore she gave birth to * right baby boy, the young ot er went with her parents to torgiss City, South Dakota, icro in course of time she was panted a div?rce.

To M. J. 1 ? n^'s and just a few special en<?. he told the story of his fridge. Recently he heard a ?or stating that his former ?|je ,vould soon marry again and pi 0st no t'me writing her a I her letter' congratulating (ni an ' say,n& that he hoped her U e life would -be as full of 5D. ancl 48 bappy as his had been I ?[},?. To this she replied [ "ere was no foundation for the rumor. Mr. M. J. Francis, the Wilsouburg postmaster, whose philanthropic ideas and genial nature have made him 'riends wherever he is known, at once began 1o negotiate a recon ciliation. Ward supposed thai his wife had learned to hate him. She thought him equally as care less of her. Both were mistaken. There was one vision that often cauie before him in his hours of meditat ion?that of the girl and her little boy in the "land of the Dakota's." Never to be erased from her memory was the part ing scene in Iowa. The curtain is soon to rise for another scene. In a few weeks Cora wi II reach West Virginia, there will be an other wedding and J. C. Ward will clasp to his bosom his first love and his child. Ward is a gentle man of pleasant manners, indus trious and has made for himself a good reputation among the people of Wilsonburg. To a Telegkam reporter Mr. Ward admitted the truth of the state ments above mentioned but says he has no complaint to make against his wife's relatives and blames himself largely for the turn that matters took. He admits that the affair is de cidedly romantic and his happi ness is easily seen in his counten ance. He feels yery kindly toward his friend Francis who was largely instrumental in get ting matters in their present shape. This news will be quite a revelation to many of Mr. Ward's associates who have often wondered why he avoided social alliances/and always treated his young lady friends with marked formality. Long, long tie my miml with such memories filled ; Like a heart in which true love him once been distilled; You may break, yon may shatter that heart if you will, But the image of a girl will cling 'round itstill. MAYBERRY HARRISON. Mayherry Harrison, brother of Judge Thos. W. Harrison, of this city, died at the home of his sis ter Mrs. Thomas Patton, on Pike street, on Tuesday. Mr. Harrison married a Baltimore lady and re sided in the Monumental City until the death of his wife who was quite wealthy and left her husband an annuity during his life time. A few years ago he had the misfortune to lose his eye sight and since then he has resided only a part of the time in Clarksburg. He was quite a cultured man and was very fond of reading.

The West Virginia State Con vention of the Young People's Societies of Christian Endeavor will be held in Wheeling this year, and the societies of the city are now busily engaged in mak ing arrangements for entertain ing Ihe convention. This will be I the largest Christian Endeavor meeting ever held in this State, but the home societies feel fully equal to the occasion and will prove to their friends throughout the State their ability to enter tain. The Executive Committee of the State Union, of wnich Rev. C. M. Alford, of this city, is president, held a meeting at Grafton on Friday last, and plans for the convention are well under way. There will be a meeting of the societies of Wheeling at the English Lutheran church on Sixteenth street, this evening at eight o'clock, to hear reports concerning the preparations now in progress for entertaining the State Convention.?Register. Andrew Carnegie arrived at New York the first of the week from Europe. Is Nominated for United States Senate bv The REPUBLICAN Caucus. Hon. S. B. Elkins Is named For The Long Term. Some Legislative Proceeding's briefly told. The Republican joint caucus held itself entirely aloof from from the Democratic, muddlo at Charleston, and pleased every body by naming Hon. S. B. Elkins as their choice for U. S. Senator in preference to C. J. Kaulkner, and Judge Edwin Maxwell, of Clarksburg, as their choice for the position that a Democratic majority will give to Johnson N. Camden It was in deed a fitting recognition of Judge Maxwell's public services. The proceedings ;n the Senate were confined to drafting resolu tions concerning Senator Kenna and discussing some legislative topics. IN THE HOUSE. A number of bills were intro duced and referred, among them the following: By Mr. Thomas, to groyide foj the establishment and "manage*" ment of the West Virginia orphans' home. By Mr. Smith, of Marion, to amend the law .concerning joint stock companies; also a bill con cerning the preservation of useful animals. By Mr. Mooman, to prohibit the sale of cigarettes or opium to minors under sixteen years of age. By Mr. Stapleton. to extend and regulate the liability of cor porations and other employers to make compensation for per sonal injuries received by em ployes while in service Mr. Smith, of Calhoun, offered a joint resolution providing for securing as a memento, the chair and desk of the late Senator Kenna from the United States senate chambor, which was adopted. FUNNY PROCEEDINGS. The Democratic side of the house broke the record for parti sanship when Mr. Dandridge, of Jefferson, offered a resolution providing for an additional page, to be known as a journal page. Mr. Dandridge spoke in support of his resolution, and urged that the delay of legislation by the want of a journal page was cost ing the State at the rate of 1400 or $500 per day. Judge Maxwell offered an amendment providing that the new page should be a Republican, and to his surprise it was adopted. Then came the fun. The ques tion was on the adoption of the Dandridge resolution as amended, and it wes rejected by a strict party vote, Mr. Dandridge him self opposing it So Mr. Dan dridge is on record as preferring to let the State go on losing four or five hundred dollars per day rather than see a Republican little boy given employment. In the West Virginia Senate on Tuesday President Wiley called. Senator Marcura to the chair and in a very brief speech named Hon. Johnson N. Camden for the short term. Senator Farr, o*i behalf of the Republicans, r.ominated Hon. Edwin Maxwell, speaking of him as one who in the past had distinguished himself in ry position in which he had placed, and who would, if to the United - States Senate, acquit himself there with his people and his State, representing her interests as a representative of her people. two KttVcLARKSBURG. .

Baggarly, at j Morgan town The Nashville American, speak ing of the late Gen.Buttlor. says: ? 'Old Ben Butler is dead! Early yesterday morning the angel of death, acting under the Devil's orders, took him from earth and landed bin in bell. I? all this Southern country there are no tears, no sighs and no regrets. He lived only too long. We are glad he has at last been removed from earth and even pity the Devil the possession he has secured. If there is a future of peace in store for Ben Butler, after his entrance upon eternity, then there is no heaven ana the Bible is a lie. If bell be only as black as the Good Book describes it, then there are not the degrees of punishment in which some Christians so firmly believe. He has gone, and from the sentence which has already been passed upon him there is no appeal. He is already so deep down in the pit of everlasting doom that he eouldn't get the most powerful ear trnmpet conceivable to scien tists and hear the echoes of old Gabriel's trufapet, or fly a a mill ion kites and get a message to St. Peter, who stands guard at Heaven's gate. In our statute books many holidays aredecreed. It was an egregious* oversight that one on the occasion of the death of Ben Butler was not foreordained. The "Beast' is dead. The cymbals shoul$ beat and the tin horn should get in its work." Such vile and infamous spleen as the above could only be pro duced by a man whose every im pulse was as black and hellish as the night of -eternal despair." Butler may have had his faul-S. but who is this demon in human form that stands at the tomb of the ''silent dead" and empties his load of venom? The brain of General Butler was four ounces heavier than that of Daniel Webster, which was one of the weightiest o? record. IS AT REST. Funeral Of Rutherford B. Hayes at Fremont To-Day. REMAINS OF The Ex-President Laid at Rest With Simple Ceremony. Thousands View The Dead.-A Distinguished Funer al Cortege. Fremont, O.. Jan. 20.?This city is filled with more disting uished men to clay than it has ever entertained. All of thera have come to pay the last tribute of respect to the lato ex-President Hayes, who will be buried this afternoon, amid much imposing c e r o m o n les. Prosident elect Cleveland arrived this morning, his train being an hour and n half late. He was met by a com mute of citizens and shown every attentiou. The order of the fu neral procession was as follows: Honorary pall bearers-Sec retary Chas. Poster. Gov. "Wil liam McKiiley, J. L. M. Curry, ex Minister to Spain, Senator Brice. Major E. 0.

Representatives of the United States Senate and House of Representatives. Governor McKinley. staff, and members of the Ohio Legislature, All the civil officers of the State. The day dawned bright and clear, but cold, tho thermometer being at zero. Frost and snow made the limbs of the great oaks at Spiegel Grove hang low. As early as 9 o'clock the people be gan flocking at the Hayes man sion, and all forenpon thousands passed in a continual procession to the hushed mansion to take a last look at the honored dead. At 9 o'clock the school children of tho city, numbering (JOO to 800, marched in fine order with the national flag at their head, and followed by the civic societies of Fremont, passed in a long pro cession through tho large dining room at Spiegel Grove, where the remains lay in state. The plain cedar casket in black cloth rested in the centre of the room, with no decorations upon it but three palm branches tied with purple ribbon, the gift of David Norton, of Cleveland. The silver plate bore the inscription, "Ruther ford B. Hayes, Jan. 16, 1893." On the breast was the decoration of tBe Commander-in-Chief of the Loyal Legion, and on the left lapel of the coat was the decora tion of the Army of the Virginia. A huge American flag was stretched across the south end of the room. Over it wore bunches of white and yellow roses and wreaths of heliotropes. THE FUNERAL SERVICES. The simple services for the dead began in the Spiegel Grove mansion at 2.o'clock. In the par lor adjoining the dining room were President-elect Cleveland, the Cabinet members, delega tions of United States Senators and Congressmen and officers of the army and navy. Amid the falling tears of the mourners the casket was lifted by the pall bearers and the sad procession to Oakwood cemetery was begun. The body was consigned to ito last rioting place after the slmplo ritual of the grand army of the Republic was read Kenn* mid Jeiat Jnraft, I It is said that long before the noted bandit and outlaw, .loss# James, had become a notorious criminal and before John Edward Kenna, Wost Virginia's late U. S. Senator had becomo a Statesman, the famous bandit was kind to Kenna, who was then a poor boy in Ohio. The years went by, ICenna became famous as the youngest member of tho U. S. Senate and James became notoriously famous as amurderer and robber. About the time live States wore offering a reward of *50,000 for the body of Joss* James, dead or alive, the latter came to Washington and boldly sent in his card to the Wost Vir ginia Senator. Kenna received him kindly, and James dined at the National Hotel with Kenna. and was with him off aud on for seveial days until he took a traia and left Washington to go to tho final fate thatawaited him. Kenna was spoken to about tho matter, the possible peril and injury to him for having thus treated James and havinc been with him. Ho said: "Oh, well, I know him when I had not a shirt to my back, and he was kind to me then." That was in the days be fore James had become a famous outlaw, and Kenna under any circumstances could not foraot ? kindness or a friendly act. Nicholas Hanas. aged.70, home two ta, 0. ~ Ho was a widower, aud had married a widow with several children. His family life was very troublesome. Last night while the family was at church he and his wife quarrelled. He took a dull knife, stabbed her sevoral times and cut her throat, killing her. He then went to his daughter'* house and pro cured some powder and told her what ha had done. He then returned, loaded his musket and shot himself.
