J. Billingsley, Miss Minnie Jemp and Amose Cnrry, both IQflSjfllWBbtfl young people residing near Monticello, N. Y., started on a honeymoon which was to have lastcd a week, hut was abruptly hi ought to an end by the bride be 00?log violently i; <ana. Her condi tion coutinued to grOW worse, and up? on the recom?eodatl m ot ? phyi she was removed lo the Middletown Asylum. Miss Jemp fist showed signs of ex treme nervou-mcs*- when the minis'er reached that part of the marriage ceremony whieh reads: "Do you take this man for your lawfully wedded hus? band?" He wafl ? ?ompelled to ask tho question three times before cliciting an answor from thc brido. After tho oeremouy the oouplfl drow to Fallsburg to take the train, bol Mrs. Ourry refused to go away, saying she was not m-irried at all, that B phy sician had been summoned and not B minister to perform tho ceremony. Miss Jemp and Mr. Curry had bc.-n sweethearts since childhood and de laycd their marriage until Mr. Ourry could provide a home for his wife. Mr. Curry had formerly been cmployed as an attendant atthe Middletown Asylum and has now asked for reinstatemcnt in ordcr to be near his wife. SHOT WIFE AND HI.M9ELF. A double tragedy was enacted ;it York, on one of the pubiic through fares yesterday evening. wben Petor Senft, about 45 years old, shot liis wife twice in the head aDd then turued tbe weapon upon himself, sendiDg a btillct into bis own brain and killing himself instantly. Both had been previously married and bad children by tbeir tirst mar? riage. It appears that the fan:lilies could not agree. About three veekl ago there was a brawl and Mrs. Senft took up her-residonce in another part of tbe city.* Last nigbt Senft went to bis wife's home and tried to induce ber to return. The children by her first hus? band interferrcd and, it is allflged, re fused to allow ber to go back. A quarrel ensued and tbe man drew a revolver and fired two sbots. One of tbem struck Mrs. Senft behind the ear. She fell in the doorway. Benfl then shot himself and dropp<-d lifeloss at ber feet, Mrs. Senft was lmrried toa hospital. and is in a critical condition. Sheriff L. H. Kemp. of Henrioo county, bas served an attachment of 1200 on the management of tbfl Colored State Fair for tbfl Pctorsburg branch of tbe Rational Kreworka Maoofactaring Company. which is fiirnishing the pyroteebnic display for the week. Hoarsenc-ss in a cbild subject to croup is a sure indication of tbfl ap proach of the disease. If Ohambor laln's Cougb Remedy is given at once or even after the croupy cougb bas ap oared, it will provent the attack. Con ains no poison. 8okl by W. F. Groigb ton and Richard Gibson.
