On arriv ing: there she told her story. She was the wife of , and the couple formerly lived in Indian apolis. About two weeks ago the husband suddenly disappeared, no one knowing Avhere he went. The wife hunted high and low for him throughout the city of Indianapolis, and, not until yesterday, did she learn that her husband had decamped with another woman and had come to Richmond and taken a position at the "Wayne Works. She boarded the train, arrived here and now wanted her husband. The latter was summoned and was nat urally greatly surprised and dis mayed at the siirht of his real wife.

BIRTHDAY Anniversary Observed in a Quiet Way. February 12th, the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, is being observed quietly in this city today. The flags on all public buildings are floating in the breezes. There is a something about the name and memory of Lin coln that permeates one's whole be ing and we stand, as it were, in rev erence and awe at the very mention of his name. All men unite to do him homage. Eulogies upon his life and character are pronounced on every tongue known to civilization. Thought impoverishes itself to praise him, and "eloquence rifles'the casket of human speech of its rarest jewels from which to weave tributes to his memory." "He had been born a destined work to do, And lived to do it ; four long, suf fering years, Ill-fated, ill-feeling, ill-report lived through And then he heard the hisses change to cheers."

LINCOLN TROUBLES Among Families in Northern Liber ties.

Hooligan and a man named Pritchard. A few weeks ago, Mrs. Hooligan and Mr. Pritch ard became enamoured with each other, Avith the result that they left town "between tAvo days" and went to Indianapolis. The couple has at least been traced that far, and, thus two families are split ' in twain. Neither of these families haA-e been residents of this city for more than a few months. DR. THURSTON PARALYZED WHILE ATTENDING A MEDICAL MEETING AT INDIAN APOLIS. WHOLE RIGHT SIDE AFFECTED Taken to the Hospital and Mrs. Thurston Sent For and She Went Immediately. One of Richmond's most influen tial and best liked citizens, Dr. J. M. Thurston, is lying in a critical con dition at Indianapolis today. Yes terday, as Avas his custom, he Avent to Indianapolis to deliver his regu lar medical lecture, and, about 3 o'clock, was stricken with paralysis of the right side. He was removed to the hospital at once and Mrs. Thurston Avas tele graphed for on the instant. She left last night and was soon at the bed side of her husband. Little is known of his condition this afternoon, saA-e that he is today in just about the same condition as last night, and, although his whole right side is par alyzed, Dr. Thurston is yet able to talk, though not long at a time.

Senator Hanna 's physicians think the cli max of the fever is reached and may continue 4S or 50 hours. If the fe ver should break then the patient will have a good chance for recov ery hut if it continues for a longer period the Avorst is to be feared, as the patient's strength is not suffici ent to long withstand the ravages of the feA-er. All physicians are with him this morning. Washington, Feb. 12. It has been decided to send for Senator Hanna 's son, Daniel, of CleA-eland. Cleveland. O., Feb. 12. D an Ti.

He does not believe his father's condition is alarming-, but HAM CONDITION i Delights an Audience of Over One Thousand Two Hundred People. One of the Greatest Musical and Social Events in the History Of Richmond. The appearance of Madame Schumann-Heinle, one of the greatest celebrities of the day, in a song -o-cital at the Coliseum last evening Avas one of the most important, bril liant and successful events in the musical life of Richmond. Many people living here had heard Madame Schumann-Heink in opera, but never on the more intimate foot ing of the concert platform and she proved herself in this more personal and direct appeal to the audience, peculiarly fascinating both as a vir tuoso and an individuality. After all that has been said and written about this famous singer, it would only be emphasizing the obvious and accepted to reiterate the fact of her celebrity as one of the most distin guished interpreters of Wagnerian roles the Avorld has so far knoAvn; to comment upon the marvelous quali ties of her wonderful contralto Aoice; to dwell upon her briliant achieAements both in her OAvn coun try and abroad; or to recount the royal progress of her triumphs which haA-e been so widely exploited. The program given below Avas sufficiently A-aried to display-all the possibilities of Madame Schumann-IIeink's Avon derful organ, the brace of songs at the first of the program by Schubert being, perhaps, the most appealing, the program being carried out as given : 1. (a) "Arie Mitrane" Rossi. (b) I)u bist die Ruh .. Schubert. (c) Wohin Schubert. (d) Der Wanderer Schubert. 2. Piano Soli. (a) Nocturne Chopin.- (b) Liebestod "Tris tan & Isolde" Wagner-Liszt Miss Josephine Hartmann. 3. (a) Ileimweh Hugo Wolf. (b) Three Songs from "Trom peter of Saekkingen" Riedl. (e) Widmung Schumann. 4. (a) Die Drei Zigeuner Liszt, (b) Three Songs from the Cycle "Poet's Loac" Schumann. 1. Im Avunderschoenen Monat Mai. 2. Aus meinen Thraenen spries sen. 3. Die Rose, die Lilie. 5. (a) Prison Scene (Act IV) from i ' Der Prophet ' ' Meyerbeer. "Fides" Mme. Schumann Heink. (b) Bolero Arditi. At the close of the first number Madame Schumann-Heink in re sponse to the prolonged and insistent encore graciously receied, 'gae AA-ith impressive effect, the familiar aria from the oratorio "St. Paul" "Put the Lord is Mindful of His Own," by Mendelssohn. After the close of the third number, which in cluded the three songs from "Trom peter of Saekkingen," by Riedl and the "Widmung," by Schumann, she sang as an encore the beautiful "Springtide," Avhich displayed cer tain qualities of voice with brilliancy the first of the three. "Trompeter" songs also bringing into prominence her splendid tone color. The three little songs by Sch umann from the Cycle "Poet's Love, " Avere, perhaps, more deeply appreciated by the audience than any other of her numbers, being giv en Avith so much tenderness and feel ing, but the "Prison Scene," from the Fourth Act of Meyerbeer's "Der Prophet," and the last number by Arditi, aroused the greatest enthu siasm. After the latter Madame Schumann-Heink appeared again and again to acknowledge the continued applause but did not respond far ther. Miss Josephine Hartmann, aaIio ac Avants to be near him during the crisis of the disease. He leaA'es for Washington this afternoon. ' Washington, Feb. 12. A noon bul letin says Senator Hanna 's tempera ture is 101.0, pulse 108 and respira tion 29. He retains all nourishment. There are no comrdications. p. suit companied Madame Schumann Heink Avith such fine restraint, gave f two piano numbers, a Chopin "Noc turne" and an arrangement from Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde," both of winch were received Avith ap preciatiou. This was one of the most interest ing social as Avell as musical events given in Richmond this season, the audience including not only the rep resentative people of the town but of nearby cities and smaller com munities, as Avell as parties of peo ple from Indianapolis, Dayton, Win chester, Cincinnati, Cambridge City and other nearer by toAvns, as the ad- vent of so celebrated a singer in so much smaller a city than is usual at 'tracted great attention. Madame Schumann-Heink said to a representative of the Palladium that she had been in this country 1 five times and on concert tour every time even when she sang in opera j with Mr. Grau, she being a mem ber Mr. G rau's famous aggrega tion of singers at the Metropolitan , Opera House, this company also ap pearing in other large centers iri the United States. Madame Schumann 'Heinle in ansAver to a question as to Avhether she ireferred to sing in i opera or concert and also as to what might be her "favorite role," threw out her hands and said dra matically "ALL ALL the little songs Everything" or to that effect iu the German. She also said that she Avas making a sort of Aast circle on this tour through the United States, going on to the Pacific slope where she Avould sing in Los .Ange les, Xorth to San Francisco and on to Oregon, and thence back across the continent through Canada. Madame Schumann-IIeink's first number by Rossi and last number by Arditi Avere given in the Italian and the Meyerbeer number in French, but all the others in German save the encore from "St. Paul" which AA-as giA-en in English: She does not speak English readily or with much fluency and depends A'ery much upon her Secretary to help her OAer diffi cult places in this most difficult of languages for a foreigner to ac quire. Madame Schumann-IIeink's reputation for charm and prnciousness Avas exemplified last evening in both her appearance before the audience and in meeting people in her dress ing room, her personality being of the most delightful character, she being possessed of the greatest Avarmth of heart, simplicity of man ner magnetism and graciousness. Xo one could help adoring Madame Schumann-Heink. The beautiful upper register of Madame Schumann Heink's Aoice Avas a delightful surprise to the au dience, a contralto A-oiee rarely pos sessing so exquisite a quality in the upper registers, and her phenomenal range being astounding. Madame Schumann-Heink is without doubt the greatest contralto iioav before the j public and Richmond people should certainly congratulate themselves upon having had the unexampled op portunity, not frequently accorded so small a city, of hearing this great virtuoso. Madame Sohumann-IIeink came here from Grand Rapids where she sang to an audience of three thous and the previous ""night, haA'ing ap peared before an aggregation of four thousand people the night before in Detroit. She left this morning at seven o'clock for Cincinnati where she sings twice this afternoon and tomorrow night. No Official Report. London, Feb. 12.

TBAYELING MEN ON TIE BOOM P. A. PRESS COMMITTEE MAKES SOME GOOD SUGGESTIONS. FOR GOODOFTHE ORDER Pictures of All Worthy Travelers to be Placed in Commercial Gal lery of Fame. To the Editor of the Palladium. The banqueting season being over, and pleasures set aside, the advance ment of the T. P. A. organization in this city, by its members, should be the first consideration. , Many new faces appeared at our last banquet, to the Aery great de light of Brothers Quigg, Hegger, Le bo, Starr, Jenkins, Morgan and a host of others; and Ave trust that AA-eekly A'isits Avill be the rule for all members who participated in our celebration on January lGth. The object of this in'itation is for members to meet frequently and sug gest "ways and means" for the up building of one of the Aery best in surance organizations against acci dents, together with its commercial interests, two A-ery important consid erations in the business Avorld. The post membership has now reached the 200 mark, and one pur pose is, before April 1st, to reach 300, hence our post officers desire the kind co-operation of all participants in our past celebration, and respect fully request each member to at east secure one applicant for membership, thus showing their appreciation of out past efforts in a noble cause.

We Avere considerably amused a feAA days ago at the diplomacy used in jockeying for position by A-arious leaders in their efforts to secure prominent position in this great pic ture gallery. The generalship displayed in a friendly riA-alry would do credit to a "Kentucky Colonel" or "Tammany Chieftain," and the Press may giA-e them special attention at some future time. Brother Ilirschburg has our sin cere sympathy. In conclusion, the T. P. A. mem bership in our state has reached near ly 3,400, and is surpassed by Mis souri only, Avith a membership of nearly 3,800, hence our efforts to reach first place before May 1st is the earnest desire of all loyal mem bers of the TraA-elers' Protective as sociation in Indiana.
