A Strange Story.
There it? n elory, most strange- aud start?
ling, soon to be io!d in a Brooklyn court.
Dr. SumoerA Mas n, a physician who rna le
half a million in aN;if Yoik prao ice of
twenty years, married a beautiful youDg
woman many years hir junior, a daughter of
tho late General Heath, of Brooklyn. She
wa= educated, refined, wealthy. She had
traveled all over the world and lived In
Italy .'or half a diz-n year?. The physician
lived in a handsome mansion in the heart of
the metropolis, and his young wife appeared
happy. Two children were born, Three
years sgo a handsome Italian was introduced
in the physicians bouse as a relative of hia
wife This Italian took up his residence at
tho physician's mansion. The bead of the,
house took nick. He occu3: d his wife of un?
faithfulness. She, it is alleged.declared be waB
insane, but shortly afterwards eloped with
the Italian. Sne is said to have taken an bb
-um< d usme, placed l er iitt'e girl in a con
vi nt and her hoy in a mt nastery iu Italy.
Her rich companion traveled with her over
Europe. FinuHy she was charged with
having raurdeied him in a mad fit of jeal?
ousy. She was acquiled of the charge, and
returned to America. Her deserted bus
band declared be would forget all if she
would let him see bis children. She agreed,
look bim to Italy, and, as be alleges, she
bad him kidnapped, placed in an insane
asylum, where, it is charged, she paid for
bis support and inhuman treatment for
flight months. Securing all his papers she
returned to America, gained possession of
her husband's property and personal effects
and lived at the Clarendon Hotel in Brook?
lyn. Frier.ds traced the physician, secured
his release from bin prison and he is now in
New York. He has instituted a Buit against
the Italian Government and one against his
wife to recover bis property.
A Host's Recompense.?Protogenes, the
Greek paioter, was an impatient man. Id
painting a picture of a tired, panting dog,
be met with satisfactory success, except
that he failed In every attempt to imitate
tho foam that should have beeu seen on the
dog's mouib. He was so much provoked
over it that be seizsd the sponge with which
he cleansed bis brushes and threw it against
tbe picture with tbe intention of Bpoiling
ir. It happened to strike on tbe dog's
mouth, and produced, to tbe astonishment
and delight of the painter, the very effects
that be hod labored so persistently to imi?
tate. Paul Veronese, like many other paint?
ers, was given to cccer.tiic moods and odd
habits. On one occasion he accepted tbe
hospitality of r familv at their beautiful
country villa. Ht? ast-urned great liberties
during his vi-it. claiming absolute possession
of bis room, allowlrg not even a servant to
enter. He would not suffer the maid to
mnke his bed, and ihe sweepings of the
room were left every morning outside of
tho door for her to remove. He slipped
away without biddiog the family good-by.
On entering the room the servants found
the t-beets of >he bed missing, and at once
reported tea'ihe painter must have stolen
them. After careful search a roll was found
in a corner which proved to be a magnifi?
cent picture of "Alexander in the tent of
Darias" I' was painted on tho missing
sheets of tbe bed, and the artis had chosen
this curious way of recompensing bis hosts
for their generous hospitality.
Suicide by Stabvation.?News has been
received of the very pecu'iar suicide of Jona?
than Williams in Davidson county, N. C.
He was sixty-five years old, and on account
of development^ being brcugbt to light
which would place his character in a rather
bad light, tbe oid man decided that he would
rather put on end to bis life than live with?
out a good character. Without informing
bis family of his rash intentions be ceased to
eat anything, having made up bie mind to
starve to death. Many days went by and
the old man positively refused to eat or
drink anything except one glass of cold wa?
ter each day, saying bis appetite bad failed
him. His wife set all manner of food before
him but he would not touch anything. On
the twentieth day of his fast he made known
bis intention to his famity, who then re?
sorted to every possible means to induce
bim to eat, but of no avail. Tbe old man
lay upon his bed, and, with bis family and
plenty of food by his side, died from starva?
tion on the twent. -fifth day of bis fast.
