Shortly after the John Roblneon
circus arrived there was an effort on .
the part of the show people .to smoth- |
er and suppress an elopement and marriage
that occurred within the sacred
boundary of their exclusive sphere?
the show world. Consequently the
air Is charged with circus talk and 1
the happenings of the day are allied
.with the big show realm. The God of
Amusement holds full sway and rules
artistically. However, he left his
God of Cupid to mount thereon and 1
with bis matrimonial wand make two
hearts as one and It Is to be. hoped
happy for all time.
The doings of Cupid were not rosy
laden all the way. Clouds and hin
nrances were in me pain io Bweeia

and the telegraph were sought to
The happy -couple were Van
Skulk, who has been with the John

Miss Sarah Hackett, a beautiful girl
of New,( York City, daughter of a
prominent New York dentist, residing
on Fifth avenue. Her mother moves
with the select society of the metropolis.
About two months ago the parents
learned that the daughter was corresponding
with the showman. They
found a letter from Van to JIlss Sarah
and this letter told the story of
their Intended marriage. New rules
were laid down for the daughter, and
she was not permitted to go anywhere
without "paw" and "maw."
Everywhere that JIlss Sarah looked ,
she saw the apron string of her mother.
Love always finds a way and In
this case wireless telegraphy was called
Into play. Miss Sarah's elopement
was planned. Two nights ago she twisted
her ted spread Into a rope and
with this she lowered herself from a
second story window of the Hackett
home to the pavement. Hurriedly she
skldooed, took a cab, got out at the
railway station and took a train west.
In the morning she was miles from
home and the tell-tale rope hanging to
the window mutely told the parents
that they had been fooled. Telegrams
were sent to the heads of police departments
In all the cities Instructing
them to stop the fleeing daughter and
return he? to the paternal roof. JIlss
Sarah was too wise and eluded them
all, even the blue coats, and became?
the wife of the man she loves. The
afTair cost the groom:
