Atlantic City, N. J., July 17—The reported engagement of Miss Kittie Call and Mr. Fred Douaghey of Phila delphia has turned out to be a joke from all accounts. Mr. Douaghey, who is a well known newspaper man, has been paying Miss Call marked atten tion for some time, in fact ever since the '"Chinese Honeymoon" has been in the city, and it is known that he pro posed to Miss Call on two different oc casions, being directly refused each time, Miss Call giving &s her reason hat she was already engaged to the gentleman from Boston. The report of the engagement has caused Miss Call considerable annoyance owing to the fact that she has been the recipient of numerous telegrams and letters from friends in various portions of the country offering congratulations. The manner in which the report became prevalent was owing to the manager of the company, Mr. A. Toxenworm. who in order to play a practical joke on the pair pinned a large sign on them while they were out driving which read "engaged," the report BRIEF 1 BIT8 WILL POSTPONE OPERATION Amelioration in Condition of the Leads Doctors to Postpone Operation.

When the story in question did actu ally get into print Miss Call was great ly worried and for a time was serious ly indisposed. She recovered shortly and of the story of the proposal as it leaked out Miss Cal! said this evening: "1 had no idea that this would be tak en so seriously by any one. I never gave it a thought in fact until that absurd report started in the papers. It has hurt me to think that any one should have taken it seriously as 1 never had the faintest idea that any thing would be really seriously intend ed by Mr. Donaghey.
