A Yontisr Man Xoe a Wife by as
Fooliah Aet Subsequent Happy
From the Albauy Journal.
About three yearn ago a good-looking,
stalwart yoong mechanic went from' .this
city to accept an advantageous offer in
the town of Salem, Washington county.
Being unmarried and rather fond of o-
ciety, it was not long Deiore James west,
as we sha.ll call, him, acquired a circle of
annuo in ton pa ihul amhrReerl at least all
the prettiest girls In1 the place. After
bestowing 'attentions indiscriminately,
i trllT7 at fa iminir mAnv hp.n.rrj! to beat with
jealous rage and envy, he suddenly be
came more reserved in his demeanor,
and from thenceforth, devoted himsett to
but one, a young lady whose personal
attractions were- only sarpassed by her
amiable character - and varied accom
plishments, named Kate , daughter
of a well-to-do farmer of. Washington
countv. .' West had - evidently heard the
admonition that " faint heart never won
fair lady; for be pressed his suit with
an ardor that soon received its reward,
and their engagement was announced.
Six months afterward, on a bright
sunny day in May, the nuptials were cel
ebrated. After i marriage hey ' settled
.fawn tn hnnsplrppnino' in a neat little
cottage, surrounded with all that a happy
young couple could, desire, ana every
thing seemed to augnr well for a long
anil Irauniiil lifn nf domestic bliss." "
But in an. evil hour their bright hopes
were ghauoweu. a tormer acquaintance
happening in the village was met by the
vniiao- huihanr). and while recallinE old
times a social drink was? proposed. . A
faint show of resistance on the part of
West, and the drinK was taicen, imiowea

ing passed a lonely evening, retired to
rest, framing a thousand excuses tor ner

awoke in an agony of terror at finding
herself still alone, and hastily uingingon

beholding the one she loved so well lying
across the step, besmeared with filth, in

driven her away. A week passed by,
and although'' the conscience-stricken
huslmnd made every search and inquiry,
no trace of the lost one could be found.
A year elapsed, and having given up all
hope of ever regaining his lost happi
ness, the husband threw up his situation,
sold his furnitureand came to this city,
where he secured employment as a ma
chinist. A few days ago, happening to
be in Troy on business, while passing up

his wife. The recognition was mutual;

large per centage of cases there is no
doubt that the balance is on the wrong

to the utmost they can afford, but afford
