SHE PAID A TREAT PRICE.
How Mis-a Robins Won the Man of Her Choice. From the New York Times. It is a good deal to give SIOO,OOO for an other woman's husband, especially when the husband in question is fifteen years older than the buyer, and the buyer is an attrac tive young lady of good social position. Yet that is the sum which Miss Sarah A. Robins is said to have pnid, and, having got the man, she clung to him with an iufaiua tion which resembles insanity. Miss Robins is the daughter of David Robins, a rich ami prominent builder of this city, who died in 1871, leaving a fortune of about $1,000,000, which, after proper pro vision had been made for the widow, was divided equally between Sarah A. and her brother, Francis F., now a stock broker on Broad street. After the death of Mr. Rollins the widow and her daughter con tinued to live together in the family man sion, on Fifty-sixth street, until September, 1881, when Mrs. Robins died. Then Miss Robins went to the Buckingham Hotel and lived with her brother and his wife. She was then an accomplished ami attractive young lady of 25, carefully educated and a favorite in society. Line a great many young ladies who have nothing to do. a short time before her mother’s death she imagined that she had some nervous trouble and put herself under the care of “Dr.” J. G. Johnson, a “Professor” of the massage treatment. Johnson was by no means a cheap prac titioner. He put on a great deal of “style” and lived with his wife and daughter in tine apartments at the Windsor Hotel. Tiiero was nothing in his personal appearance which would be cohsidored attractive to a young lady of good social position. He was tall and gaunt, ill-mannered, uncultured, arid 40 years ..Id, Unlimited assurance and a ready tongue were his distinguishing characteristics. Tire former caused him to pay his addresses to Miss Robins, and the latter' caused him to succeed in gaining her affections. He besought her to marry him, and when she told him that she understood be was married, he replifed that he had been, but, thanks to an Illinois divorce, was n free man. Notwithstanding her affection for John son, Miss Robins had at that time a little •discretion left. fShe was not so ready to fling away her good name and fame as she lrecame a few months afterward. Going to the old lawyer and steadfast friend of the family, James F. Malcolm, she told him of the affair. He at once warned her that in all proirability such a divorce, if it existed, of which he hail doubts, would not permit Johnson to make a legal marriage with her, and he strongly remonstrated against her espousing a man so greatly beneath her in social station. She seemed to yield to his arguments and went away. But Mr. Malcolm did not stop at words; he resorted to deeds. An investigation of Johnson’s circumstances showed that there was a Mrs. Johnson and n Miss Johnson living with him at the AVindsor. Miss Robins taxed him with the fact, and he then admitted that Mrs. Johnson had been his wife, but was so no longer, and that she was only at the hotel in order that he night have the superintendence of their daughter’s education. Although Miss Robins lielieved this yarn, it seemed “too thin” to her brother. He called upon Mrs. Johnson and asked her if it was true. She denounced it, said that she was Johnson’s lawful wife, and that the girl, Connie, was their <lnugli ter. Mr. Robins placed all this informa tion before his sister, and it greatly affected her. She promised her brother that she would see Johnson no more. She did not for awhile. Ho went West immediately after the expose, lea\..ig his wife and daughter at the Windsor. Never theless, Johnson and Miss Robins must have been in constant communication. He was gone several months, and during this period Mr. and Mrs. Robins did all in their power to wean their sister away from him. They lielieved they hod succeeded She went into society, and was the same charming and light-hearted girl as of yore. This was only a masquerade. One day she announced that she was going to ‘Europe. Nothing could stop her. She wns of age and the mistress of more than half a million. She went, and Johnso:i_was a passenger on the same steamer. This was in July, 1885. Her friends heard that she and Johnson were living together in London, where tlicv claimed to have been married, and that a child was born to them, which only lived a short time. Meanwhile the lirst and real Mrs. Johnson and her daughter lived in New York, hoarding ex pensively at the Murray Hill Hotel, and Mi>. Johnson told everybody who cared to know that the money which paid her hills came from her husband in London. Presently Mr. Malcolm discovered that •vino queer proceedings were on foot. Ho heard that Charles H. Reed—Guiteau’s lawyer—was mixed up with them as the counsel for Miss Rolling. Why Miss Robins should have any legal connection with such matters was not clear to Mr. Malcolm. So he went to Reed for informatioh. Reed frankly told him that in behalf of Miss Robins he had offered to pay Mi's. Johnson $50,000 if she would get a divorce, but that she demanded SIOO,OOO, and the negotia tions were likely to fall through. They did not fall through, however. Mrs. Johnson went to Chicago, and in July, 1880, the pu llers of that city announced that a divorce had been granted to Augusta B. Johnson from J. (4. Johnson for desertion, and that the homestead, at Bloomington, 111. —which town is said to be Johnson’s birthplace worth $25,000, and the custody of their daughter Connie, aged 15, were given to,the petitioner. How much money she got from Miss Robins for this has not yet been ascer tained —but Mr. Alalcolm and Mr. Robins have reason to believe that it was all she demanded—sloo,lXlo. About two months before this divorce was granted Johnson mid Miss Robbias re turned to New York. That they were coldly received by her relatives can easily lie believed. They only staid here about three mouths, during the last of which, af ter Mrs. Johnson’s divoreo was granted, they say they wore married by a clergyman. Early last fall they wont to Centre Rut land, \ r t.. where they now reside. A child was bora to them last fall, which is still living. After getting her divorce Mrs. Johnson and her daughter returned to this city and hoarded nt the Murray Hill Hotel until the c;jeniug of summer, when they went to Eu rope. They are there now, but their return is exiierted in the fall. All these fact* came to light yesterday, by means of Judge Donohue, in Supreme Court Chambers, in regard to the reference of a suit which Mr. Alalcolm has brought against Miss Robins, or Mrs. Johnson — whichever she may be —to recover about SIO,(XX) for legal servicos. Mr. Malcolm says his services were iiiqiortaut, relating chiefly to the care of her estate and consist ing, among other things, of the collection of SlW.oort for her at one time, for which In - charged only 1 peroent. Mr. Malcolm nl o says that there Is no defease whatever to bis claim, and that no opjiosition need Is* iittii 1 1* t > its collection were it not that John son ir. enraged with him on account of bis strenuous opposition to his marriage with Miss Bobbins. Ail uiter -sting question which is likely to ho elucidated by tins litigation is the ulti mate d:p]X(sitiou of theestateof Mrs. Amelia Robins, the mot her of Francis F. and Sarah A. by her will she left *NI,UOO ill trust, the income oi which is to go to her daughter for life, ana after death the principal is to To to the daughter's lawful heirs ir she have a iy. Great doubt is expressed by the Rob ins family and their counsel as to whether bv the ttrms of the decree of divorce which Mr* Johnson got in Chicago, her husband is permitted to marry another woman. If lie is not, then the child which hits Is-en horn cannot succeed to his grandmother’s property. In that caso it will go, upon the death of Sarah A., to her surviving col lateral relations. Augustus Prentice and Ira Hhafer are counsel for Karab A. Robbins or Johnson in Mr. Malcolm's suit. Air. Prentice was Mrs. Johnson's counsel when she was getting her divorce. Her deposition was tefion by Mr. Mai culm baXoro she went to Eumoo this spring, and it was interesting reading. Lucas L. Van Alien is the referee in the case. A PRINCE CREMATED. How They Dispose of the Dead in Siam. From the Pull Mull Gazette. On the afternoon of April 27 last we an chored off the mouth of the magnificent river Menam, and in the evening weighed anchor, crossed the Ivor and proceeded up the river. We anchored again about lip. m., close to the left bank, beyond the town of Paknam, in an atmosphere fragrant with tho odor of orange blossoms from a grove close by, and were lullabyed to our slumbers by the chirping of the ground crickets and the pleasant and incessant small, bell-peal like Croakings of the tree frogs. Early next morning we proceeded on our journey to Bangkok, tho capital of Siam, passing on our way large tracts of mangrove swamps and paddy fields, plantations of oranges, sugar canes, coeoanut palms and tall, slim betel or areca-nut palms, Buddhist temples or wats, floating houses, and arrived nt our destination by noon. On our arrival we were informed that we had come in time to attend a royal cremation that evening, but that we had missed the mortuary rites, which had been going on for six days pre viously. So to pass tlie time till evening we determined to visit the temples and sa cred white elephants. The temples in Bang kok are much the same as other Buddhist temples throughout tho East. As for the elephants, they are frauds—poor, measly brutes, suffering from parasitic skin affec tions. Though tlie pachyderms are sacred, ennobled and titled, they do not seem to have a happy time. Their confreres in the London Zoo have princely times in compar ison. They are poorly fed mid poorly housed and very badly groomed. Are there Albino elephants > I do not know; but Ido know that the King of Siam does not possess one. Some years ago a French circus man bleached the skin of an ordinary elephant with chlorine water and sold him to the confiding Siamese government, and then cleared out of Siam. Presently the animal began to look dirty and the keepers were flogged and changed for not keeping the brute clean. The new keepers failed to clean him, of course, and the fraud was dis covered. The strange part of the story is that there is au old Siamese tradition to the effect that whoever plays any pranks or de ceit on or about white elephants shall surely die within a year of doing so. The circus man actually' did die within a year of his sale in Hong Kong. Four-thirty in too afternoon found us un der tlie fostering wings of some of the occupants of the British Legation, view ing the preparations for the coming crematory performance. It seems that the King of Siam, Somdetch P’ra Paramindr Mahan Chulalonkora, re cently lost his favorite uncle, His Royal Highness Somdetch Chovia Maliamala, Som detch Phra’ Bamrap Parapaks, whose re mains were to be cremated on this evening. Such names! They make one wonder whether the Siamese are an Asiatic branch of the Welsh people. Outside the palace gate, on the parade ground, a square space was main tained by native soldtei-s and sailors, and within it was the temporary building, the phramane, which covered the urn containing the corpse. Besides the phramane there wore a number of pavilions and show booths within the square, in which native artists acted and discoursed music not at all displeasing to European ears. The phramane was a big, gaudy, tawdry, tinselatcd superstructure, which sent a golden spire heavenward. Its entrance was guarded by two immense be spangled sitting figures of Buddha. Within was a high inclosed dais, and around this were a number of grotesquely-colored wood en figures, representing rampant lion’s bo dies surrounded by ferocious-looking men’s heads. Squatting on the floor were a num- Iver of yellow-clad, shaven-headed Buddhist priests, with tomtoms and candles, who kept up a perpetunl but varying drumming, and who occasionally broke forth into a monot onous refrain. The King entered the phramane about 5 o’clock, amid much trumpeting and sur rounded by a big retinue. He bowed to the dais and prayed, then ascended the steps and entered the inclosure, and amid the loud chanting and tomtoming of the kowtowing priests he fired the pile beneath the urn and again prayed. He descended and departed, ’rhea the Princes ontered the inclosuro and performed their obsequies, and then fol lowed the native nobles, among whom we found ourselves. On the dais around the urn was a kind of shelf, on which were piled innumerable tapers made of sandalwood, frankincense and wax. Each person, on entering, lit a number of these and shoved them under the urn which, by the same token, was not much bigger than a decent sized pot. How they managed to stow the remains in it Ido not know. The abomina ble smell of frizzling human flesh that splut tered and spat in tlie pot, which the aro matic fumes of the sandal and frankincense failed to disguise, permeated the building and drove us forth. When the King had performed his obse quies he adjourned to a pavilion, where he held au audience. He seated himself on a kind of balcony and several of his little children were brought to him. On another balcony on his right the numerous Princes of royal blood seated themselves. The body of the pavilion was set apart for the nobles, ministers and “distinguished foreigners,” some of whom were ladies. When his ma jesty had sat for a time in silence he sud denly produced a large bag lull of green limes, each of which contained a small sil ver coin in its core. These he threw among the Princes, nobles and jioople to be scram bled for, but presented some by hand to the foreigners, es|iecially to the foreign ladies. When he had exhautod the contents of this bag he produced another containing nuts, which he treated similarly. Each nut con tained a numbered ticket, with the name of the prize us a kernel. The prizes were the personal effects of the deceased and wore distributed in this way to lie mementoes of him. Someof them were not bad. but many were naturally distributed ludicrously. One of my friends, a nou-smoker, received un old and much-abused meerschaum pipe; another, an old cigar-holder and a very common Chinese wixxl ax. A French lady of title received u man’s shirt front—a thing commonly called “a dickeyalso an odd pair of the dead man’s long stockings and an old white waistcoat, all much the worse for wear. I myself received a pretty little satin-wood cabinet and was much pleased. I heard that some of the arizes were costly articles of jewelry but aid not see any such. _ Mrs. Cleveland’s Presont. From the New York Sun. “Airs. Grover Cleveland, Washington, D. C.,’’ was an address that caught the eyeof a United States Custom House official who met the Mexican Central train on it* arrival at El Paso this morning. The package that born the name of the first lady of tho land wns n wooden box about 15 by 20 inches in size and two inches deep, weighing about two pounds. The package was opened and inside was found, carefully packed in tissue paper and cotton, a novel and lieautiful piece of artistic workmanship characteristic of the land of the Montezulnas. It was a cout-of-arms of tho United States worked on heavy cardboard, entirely with feathers. The feathers, most of them colored, were from many different kinds of birds, and the design was wrought with grent skill, feather work lieing one of the most extensively cul tivated forms of Mexican art. The only thing inside the package to indicate the donor was a visiting can! hearing tlie name of All*. Consul General More, City of Aioxico. The value placed upon the package was S2O American money and th“ duty was $lO. A letter from the Consul General to tlie Col iector at this point explained what the box contained and requested that it be not opened lest the carefully placed package Is- disar ranged and injury result, but the package was opened liefore the letter was read Groat care was taken, however, not to injure the unique and handsome present.

A Man Who Has Resound Many from Watery Graves. FVom the Cincinnati Eiujuirer. For a man who for a stated sum follows the business of life saving at the sea coast a record of half a dozen or even of a dozen rescues in one year is a matter of no great moment, and is scarcely worthy of com ment. But right here in Cincinnati is a man who in this present year, with over four months not yet marked off on the cal endar, has pulled from the Ohio river ten persons, who else would have been subjects of newspaper items beaded “mysteriously missing ” and whoso flesh would have foil tho fishes. AI-L OK THESE RESCUES were made after dark, and with a single ex ception unassisted. On Feb. 25, 1845, in Baltimore, Aid., Charles Clark was born. His boyhood was what most Imy bools are—a combination of skating, ball-playing, swimming, mumps, measles, mother's slippers and a little school. When 34 years of age Clark came AVest, and desiring to locate in the best city in America, lio nuido Cincinnati his home. After two or three years spent in general work—anything to earn an honest liveli hood—Clark was employed by the Big Bandy Navigation Company, and RAN ON THE RIVER. In 1878 he was put in charge of tho wharf - boat owned by the Big Sandy Company and called “Tho Cincinnati Wnarfboat,” and has ever since served there as the night watchman, having in all these years missed but a few days—possibly a week all told. Clark stand* six fret three, and is sparely built, weighing about 170 pounds. He has an honest, good-natured face, a coal black moustache and goatee, sharp eyes and dark hair combed back from a broad forehead. This is a brief history and briefer descrip tion of the Cincinnatian who in the past seven months has SAVED TEN I.IVES. In the nine years he has 1 iren night watch man at the wharfboat Clark has, he esti mates, pulled thirty drowning people from the river, but never until this season, when rescues happened so often and so close together, has he taken much notice of them. During the high water of last spring Clark heard HALF-STRANGLED CRIES FOR HELP one night as he walked up and down tho big wharfboat on the lookout for leaks. He hail heard such cries many a time before. He waited an instant until another cry enabled him to locate the unfortunate; and then to the rescue. The water was almost freezing cold, and the unlucky fellow, who had drifted a little distance out into the stream, and then caught onto a head-chain, was freezing almost stiff, and in another moment would have been washed from his anchorage and swept away on the current. When Air. Clark landed him safe on shore he was too nearly dead to ac knowledge his gratitude, and whoever he was, he has NEVER RETURNED to thank his preserver. Not many nights later, two young men, irttoxientod, walked off the Maysville packet. Their shouts for succor brought the old reliable life-preserver from his watch. One was assisted to where he could hold on to the Guiding Star’s wheel, and was taken nut half drowned by Clark after he had landed the other unluckv inebriate. A few weeks later, one still night in the early part of the summer, Mr. Clark sat at his watch and,strangely enough, he was thinking of some of the poor fellows whom lie had saved from drowning, when he was startled by a splash of water, and in another instant there were cries for assistance. A half-drunk man had fallen off the Big Sandy wharfboat. It was but THE WORK OF A FEW MOMENTS to pull the luckless wight out of the stream. Later, on the same night, Clark saved an other drunken fellow who deliberately walked down the hill and directly into the river. He had not got beyond his depth, but was wading blindly about, and when Clark went in after him he explained that ho was looking for Pearl street. He found the sta tion house instead, after a ride in the patrol wagon. Other rescues have been marie so recently that readers of the newspapers may recall some of them. Only a few weeks ago a woman, whether ACCIDENTALLY OF PURPOSELY is not known, walked through tlie ojien door of tho Cincinnati wharfboat into the water, and was a moment later fished out by Clark. About the sumo time a countryman, judging from his appearance, fell into tho river at the same place, and was similarly rescued. Two othor subjects of rescue at Clark’s hauds were young men who were out boat riding about the middle of sum mer, when their skiff upset. Neither could swim, and both would have been drowned but for the cool-headed night watchman. The last rescue was made about four weeks ago, and will be recalled by the reader. It was in this one that Clark was assisted by. POOR JOHN O’BRIEN, who was the night watchman oil the Coney Island wharfboat. It was but a night or two thereafter that O’Brien himself fell into the river and sank before his friend, who had saved so many lives, could reach him. One of the queer things about Clark’s life-saving experience is that lie does not know, never having inquired, the name of a single person rescued by him, and to his knowledge lie lias never seen any of them since taking them from the river. Only in a few instances has Clark lieon obliged to go into the water himself. He long ago provided himself with three lona, strong, ligl*> poles, of different lengths, and with tnesenas he effected most of his rescues. Paralyzing the Boys. From the Inmpkin ( Ga.) Independent. A musical mania seems to lie prevalent in town just now. It seems to be infectious but we iiope it is only spasmodic and ephem eral. The movement to get up a colored brass band lias collapsed or is in a moribund condition: but the irrepressible and imita tive small boy, like his simian congener, is ever ou the move and is nothing if not con spicuously ludicrous. Tho latest craze of tlie small boy is a string band, and we do sire to offer !)im (the genus) every encour agement of his greatest desires. But the ultimatum, the climax, alias that degree of proficiency in instrumentation and skillful execution necessary to constitute a credita ble string hand is more distant to tho aver age small boy than that azure hue which lends to distance its enchantment; and is only to be reached by ways -,<i devious, rug ged anti toilsome that yenrsof patience, toil, study and practice ore required to effect a pussaze way to the goal. But boys, we do not wi-.li to chill tlie ardor of your longings, hnmjKir rising genius or repress laudable ambition : but are willing to conduct you quickly and easily through this maze of un accomplished aspiration* safely to the full fruition of your hopes, i. c. a string band.

There'* a difference in them, of course. The OIIICKERINUS are costly; very much so. The MATIIUSHEKS cost one third less, and are known ns medium priced. The RENTS come lower still, but they are beauties; and the AHIONS are as low in price as a reliable Piano can be produced. Ittt our cheapest are good and can Im* de pended on for good service. We will not, and uo not s !l any Pianos which cannot lx* honestly commended, and give full, yea large return for the money put in them. We give patrons a choice from our two hun dred different styles and prices. Squares. Square Grands, Parlor Grands. Concert Grands and Uprights from $2lO upwards.

Very easy to buy a fine Piano on such terms. OUR CLAIM. .lust this: To furnish a better Piano than can be had elsewhere —North or South — for the same money. We say this not boastingly, butplninly, in a business way, knowing whereof we speak and being prepared to demonstrate its truth.
