Marvin considered the propriety of securing
the position of Igovpllrte9..Aut three
weeks ago her attention was clled to an ad
vertisement in the Hartford Churchman pur
porting to be from a widower in Ohio, who de
sired to secure the services of a governess to
take charge of his littlegirl, about six or eight
years old. The lady quickly decided to apply
for the position. She aecordingly visited her
pastor, a well-known Episcopal c'ergyman in
this city, and also a distinguished jurist, from
whom she Obtained Wet ore of recommenda
tion, which she forwarded to the widower.
The result was that Marvin came on to Rich
mond, having discarded the great number of
applications with which he was beset.
satie'led that he had found the !wnly he
desired. fHe. called upon her at her
mother's residence and here uinorun Id
her that he was the Ohio widower
hnentionea in the advertisement. Hc had sev
'eral interviews with her, during one of which
he presente4 letters of introduction to many
pemrninent business 'men here from men of
tht highest business and social positions in
the North and West, purporting to represent
that thh'bearet of them was a mhan of ample
forttue, of aqlture' and excellent social poea
-ion. So plausible were these letters and
Marvin's story, "thatrth"y were accepted as
gendine by his victim. her family and ftr.ends.
Marvin madd a prop:,ostion of marriage to the
lady, which, after consideration by herself
and friends, was accepted, and the mrtriage
solemnized at the home of her mother by the
.pastor of her church. The marriage was
a very quiet one. 'the groom, with great
liberality, had I marriage contract drawn
up, by a prominent lawyer, in which be
agreed to'b~tbw $;O0,000 on hi§ wife after the
m:urriage.,,:Thebrldti party left for Niagara
on the afternoon train, Marvin lcaving the im
pres$ionaupon the friends of the bride that
they would remain at. that watering place for
scvBral hveeks, going from thente to the West.
where they would remain till the tall, and
then sail for Europ'. Tie' groom represented
that hohad large mtiret'ts in France. where
he had lived for ultny years. Not a sujiicton
of'the truthflnes, of these representations
were entertained by the bride's friends. " i he
imnn's appearance iand letters all tended to
quiet any tiobhts of ttis integrity.- During his
stay here Marvin called on several of the lead
' Ing bu'sln'ss men and presented his letters
,and was kindly received. Ily some of these he
w:s introduced to the First National Biank.
where he exhibited letters of credit that gained
for him ready recognition as a respn ible
man. Upon theb ttength of these Marvin
presented a draft for $'00 upon a well-known
Cbhieago banking house, which was readily
pashed., Soveraida*s:elapsed after the depart
trb of the ntewb' married crmtloe before ant in
telligence was keoived. from, them by the
lady's' friends here. In 'the meantitime the
Fitht National Bank reeeivyt notification
from their Chicago correspondent that Mar
via's draft was a palpable forgery. This fact
Wge coemmnnlcated to the girl!a friellds. who
were forced to the conclusion that their loved
'6ne had been made the victim of a vile impo
sition. The particý purporting to have given
Marvin letters pf Introduction were at once
telegraphed to, White the names of msny
were found to be fictitious, the response of
'the others tame tbatthe letters were wretched
forgeries. The first intelligence from the un
happy lady was a telegram from Albion, New
.or :in which she inquired if the fatal anoe
lent to.her muother in aalel, Na., reported in
a Northern pewspaper,. was true. t would
seem that Marvin had carried the lady to Al
bion, where he hoped to practlee'hisforgery
chellme upon wealthy friends'of hers there,
and in 9rder tq gpt rid of her had manufact
ured and barl published the false story of the,
fatal accdent to hlermother, doubtless hoping
that this would cause her to at once return to
Richmond and thus leave the way clear to him
to deseft- 'r.' Aslon' aS the friends of the
vitim realized. Marvin's' imposition two of
them prompt!y loft here to Join her. The
bank ofdicrae it' e wh' had been duiled by the
bridegroom plaed: the case in the ha.dsof
a detective, who telegraphed to Albin to have
Marvin arrested. The reply eo backl that
therewere two me of that name in that city,
and; i lq u e fit tblchb ote Was wanted. The
'itlYphosto sre ng that the oiltCee. were on

one of the most fashionable of the beaun

which she would be no longer welcome.
She has taken a villa on the banks of

She knows well that the mothers and

Ventriloquism.
" Who werb the: greatest ventrilo
quists?"
"Well, there was. an old Athenian
named Eurykles, who is spoken of in
history as master of the art. Then there
were Professors Alexandre and Louis
Brabout of modern times. They were
both Frenchmen. Brabout lived in the
fourteenth century, I believe, and was
said to be the .best ventriloquist the
world ever knew. Alexandre lived at an
earlier period, and was noted more for
his mimetic representations than for his
ventriloquial powers. Prof. Love, of
Enigland, was celebrated in the art, and
wits rivaled by Prof. llarrington; 'who
died recently in Revere, MIas. Of those
living to-day, Frederick McCabe and E.
D. Davies are the greatest. Davies is
now retired in Australia, and McCabe
has recently signed a contract to go
there the present season. Davies was
the first ventrilocuist to introduce
'8gures' as an assistant to the art in
America.
"McCabe Was a great practical joker.
Several years ago he was on board a
Mississippi River steamboat, and, form
ing an acquaintance with the engineer,
was; allowed the freedom of the engine

The Washington Ilepu/blic'znsays: A
good story is told on Lieutenant Hoxie,
the young gray-headed assistant engi
neer at the Columbia Buildings. While
stationed at St. Louis he and the other
young ollicers were much exercised at
the rigor of Gen. Callender, who was a
regular old martinet. He made the
other officers send back to their regi
ments all the enlisted men who were
serving them as orderlies, while he never
thought of interfering with those about
his own quarters. Callender was fond
of a good horse, and had a pair that
were extremely fast. HIoxie, who before
his marriage was'an admirer of horse
flesh, had an animal which he consid
ered quite rapid, and one day while
driving overhauled the General and
asked hint to ride. The invitation was
accepted, and Hoice, anxious to show
the speed of his horse, gave him the
whip. This caused him to flirt his tail,
prick up hiii ears, and start off at a rap
id pace, which he immediately sensibly
increased, causing the Lieutenant to pull
very hard to keep him down into a trot.
" This is a pretty good horse you
have, lHoxie," said the General.
" Ye,," said Hoxie, pulling with all
his might, very fair."
"lie goes along right well," said the
senior officer. "How fast do you think
we are going?"
By this time they had left the city and
were flying along the roid that led to
the Arsenal, and Iloxie realized that his
horse was running away. iHe tried to
curb his speed without-alarmiig the old
man, but all his efforts were unavailing,
and they tore along a a breakneck pace.
Once or twice the 'horse shied at little,
but not greatly.. The,,General finally
renewed his question:
" "I say, Hoxie, how fast do you sup
pose we are going?"
"I'm blessed if I know," said Hoxie,
who Was nearly filayed' oftt tu6Ing at
the ireins.
vBy this time the old man began to be
-somewhat alarmed, and pulling out his
watch he said:
" Well, Hoxie, I would like to go fur
ther withmyo,r-bnt- Iihame an engage-,
ment that I mustkpgep, nd if you, wil
let me out now I will be b1liged: '
"Oh, certainly," said Hox e,.with thp
perspiration standing on his brow in
great beads. "Yes, indeed,.' lt yVc
out now," and he made a mighty effort,
and just then the horse shied.so that thb
buggy was nearly upset. The nag stop
ped, however, and the old General piled
out. The moment he struck the ground
and felt perfectly safe he turned to the
Lieutenant and said:
" I tell you, Hoxie, that's a good
horse, and he's fast, too; but I think
you ought to break him of that habit of
shying. I think you should lick it out
of him," adthlle old nai walked6ffi :
Hoxie waited until he got his wind
and recovesed his strength, and th in
drove slowly back, subsequently telling
his brother officers that he had run away
with the old General without his know
ing it. Whether he suspected it or not,
the General used to say that "That that
little fellow Hoxie Wiras the most reckless
driver he ever saw, and would use up a
good horse in a mighty short time."

er of meteors or shooting stars, and
these exceptional displays were found to
have recurred at intervals of 33 1-4
years. It was shown by somewhat ab
stirse calculations, into which we can
not here enter, that if a meteor swarm
revolved rond the sun in an oval path
in exactly 33 1-4 years, the disturbing
