The Lafayette Courier of recent date contains an article on the only I trolley sleeping car in the world vis iting that city. The car is the Holland Palace ear, the one that was kept from coming into Richmond by the Main street low bridge. The use of the Holland palace car "Frances" was tendered to Prince Pu Lun in case the weather was bad and automi biles could not be used. The Lafay ette Courier says : The car will be used tonight in the excursion planned by the Northwest ern from Indianapolis to connect with the Monon excursion from here to Chicago tomorrow forenoon. It will be the first occasion in history of eurred to Mr. McGee and he began to think of the past. The story of the whole affair is like this: : Mr. McGee and wife, who was for merly Miss Minnie Griffin, whose mother occupies the old Burchenal property, corner seventh and north A street, have not gotten along like a loving couple should. Mrs. McGee said before she left that her husband was very abusive to her and that she could not sand it any longer. Being a laboring man, and a drinker, they had little money, and Mrs. McGee made up her mind to leave him and the children and to go so far away she would not be bothered with hira' any more. So on Tuesday when she left she went to her mother's and bid the family good bye, saying she was going to leave her husband and go to her brother, John W.

Here also was installed one of the first electric street car systems in the United States, in operation long before Chicago or Indianapolis was aware that such an innovation was in existence, and it is therefore altogether proper that it should be accorded the honor of welcoming the next most important departure in the line of electrical development as ap plied to transportation.

When a Palladium representative called at the Grifiin home this morning, Mrs. Griffin reluctantly granted the de sired information. But she is a kind-hearted and affectionate lady and between tears and sobs told the story of the trials of her first-born child. She said Minnie was a good girl and kind and affectionate daughter, and it almost broke her heart to see her go. She said McGee never allowed her to visit his home and it made her feel very badly. She said McGee called at her house yes terday morning about 5 o'clock and asked her to get him a good break fast, as he hadn't had a good meal for several days. Mrs. Griffin gave him his breakfast and they had a talk over the matter. Mrs. Griffin says she always tried to treat them right and their trouble is between them, she having never interfei-ed in any way. McGee intimated that he wouldn't be surprised if a well-known busi ness man wouldn't be missing one of these days. But the mother of the girl says that kind of talk is all bDsh.
