How Chalmers Farthingale Paid an
Election Bet anJ Won a Briie.
He Pinned Hi3 Faith on Bryan and
the Free Silver Cause, and Though
He Lost His Bets and Saw His
Principles Temporarily Turned
Down, He is Not Probably Sorry
About It—A B.y Day of Feast i g
and Jollity at Berkman Settle
ment, Pocahontas County.
Special to the Register.
MAIILINTON, W. VA., December
A very pretty and romantic little story
comes from Bcrkrnan Settlement, in the
lower pait of this county. The romance
originated in un election bet and ended to
day in a wedding, which was celebrated
in tl • presence of und with the assistance
of all the good people of the community.
Chalmers Farthingale is the son of a
well-to-do English merchant and hails
from London. Like many other young
Englishmen, lie has more taste for wild,
outdoor life than for a business pursuit
such as he would have followed had ho
remained at home. Accordingly, he came
here about two years ago. und became as
sistant manager of a big cattle farm
which a cousin of his father had ostnb- j
lished in this county for a son of his.
Although an Englishman, Farthingale
was a iirm believer in the free coinage of j
silver, and was always ready to baek his
belief with argument or a wager. A few
days before the election, he was standing
before the platform of the general storo
at the Settlement, arguing the silver
question with some by-standers, when a
very pretty young woman rode up to the
store. She dismounted and entered the
store, and proceeded to make some pur
chases. Farthingale continued his decla
mations in favor of silver, and declared
he would wheel any man In the crowd
twice round the fair grounds track, and
furnish dinner for all tl • people who
could be. packed into the grand stand, if
Bryan was d< feated.
The young woman, who was none other
than Miss clertrudo !:< als. a daughter of
ex-Judge William finals, and as ardent a
gold bug as ever fluttered agolden wing,
told tiie siorckeper that she would take
th. t bet and if McKinley was defeated,
she would do her part faithfully. The
once proceeded to call on Miss Bonis ntul
Farthingale, playfully called Farthingale
into !be store and introduced him. repeat
ing Miss Boat's offer to te’te the wager.
The agreement was made and published
to their friends all over the region. When
Farthingale found thnt he had lost, ho at
once proceeded to call on Mis Boats and
to offer to keep his promise. She declar
ed her intention to hold him to his agree
ment. and the. day was set. yesterday be
ing selected.
i tot It t)v young people found Mr. Farth
ingale's visit agri-cable, and Farthingale
found it convenient to rail again to make
farther arrangements for the payment of
the bet. This call necessitated another,
and another, tiil it became apparent that
tilings other than arrangements for a
wheelbarrow ride were under consldera
At last, a week ago, the announcement
was made that there would not only he a
wheelbarrow ride tit the fair grounds.
sterday but that after Farthingale had
paid his bet, and proven himself « man of
nerve and honor, there would be a wed
ding in the main hall of the fair grounds,
and that Judge Reals would furnish the
refreshments, although Mr. Furthnigale
had originally at c-d to do so.
When two o'clock came, the grand

quarterstretcl. was tilled with carriages

upon the track, wearing the English and
American flags entwined about his shoul
ders, and pushing a wheelbarrow, in
which sat Miss Reals, wearing the stars
and stripes and a plentiful decoration of
gold hire at:d tinsel.
The cheers that went tip were greater
than wire ever heard on the fair grounds
1» fore, and as Farthingale tripped
around the half-mile track with his pre
cious load, there was no diminution of
At the end of the second round. Miss
Koala leaped from the harrow and kissed

by the bridal party and the march to tlie
main hall was begun. Rev. Dr. Jtir
ginson, of the Episcopal church had wit
te ssi d the winning of the bride, and was
in the van of the procession. It was the
work of but a few minutes to tie the
knot, and Farthingale, the happiest man
In the county, led the way with the bride,
to the banquet table, where all were made
happy with venison, wild turkey, bear
meat and all the delicacies of the season,
including half a dozen roast pigs.
After the banquet, the people again re
paired to the track, where there was hur
dle racing, steeple chasing ami a race
among the best fox hounds of this section.
The jollification wound up with a big
dance at the Judge's where Farthingale

change of views on the financial question.
