FOTJXD THE BTJ1UED TTATCH. Curious Sequel to the Acquittal of Frederick Brown. Frederick Brown, charged -with larceny of & gold watch from the body of Patrick "Ward, the saloonkeeper who dropped dead at his plaec of business on Seventh street acvoral weeks ago, was tried before the grand Jury yesterday in Justice Cole's court and acquitted. Thornton and Pierce, the two young men who were with Brown at the time, were -witnesses. Thornton testified that lie saw Brown take the body of "Ward in his arms, take the watch from his pocket and leave the house with it. After his discharge by the court, Brown was met by Detective Lacey, -who told him that he might consider himself once more underarrest. He wastakento headquarters and held there until Mr. Lacey could do a litUeoxploring on hiso wn hook. The detective visited the yard in the rear of "Ward's saloon, and after digging around for some time in the dirt and bricks, found the missing watch, -wrapped in a hand kerchief belonging to Brown, and secreted in the corner of the yard near the fence. He took his find back to headquarters and Brown was again released, as he had been acquitted of the charge.

Hobert B. Thomas. Boston and Christina There were brides and grooms married yesterday in flocks of sevens and fours, had they been joiued at sixes and sevens it would have been an unlucky owmen. In marriage ceremonies they say blessed is the bride that the rain falls on, and it is to be hoped that that Is true of the many brides, who "were married yesterday after noon in The Times building. Up to 8 o'clock there were twenty-one of these people made happy by availing themselves of the means offered them by The Times to provide themselves with marriage certificates and husbands. Most of tiiem were young people. They were neat, well dressed, aud some of them particularly well dressed, as for a churcli wedding rather than for an impromptu ceremony. There were two sets of brides and bride grooms, who "were joined in a flock, eight having stood up in one room and fourteen In another. It Is not often that such interesting spec tacles are presented as were these. All of the brides had brought their umbrellas, and neglected to lay them aside when they 6tood up to join hands and complete their hap piness. Nearly all the contracting parties were asked by The Times if they were members of any church, and they replied that they were not, but in every case they said that they felt as if they could now belong to a church and be consistent members. FEATURE OF THE 'CEREMONY. A very noticeable feature of the ceremony was the solemn and serious manner in which these people listened to the service and repeated parts of the ritual of marriage. The result to each couple was plainly ob servable in the smiles and mutual congrat ulations after the ceremony. There was no kissing of the brides. A colored man, however, called at the office yesterday morning to say that he was wlUing to perform that part of the cere mony, but his offer was not accepted. The grooms preferred to do that part of the business themselves. All of the men, it appeared, have work to do. and are doing it. They looked like very respectable people, who had been following an immoral fashion, and who, when aroused to a sense of the evil, de termined to lead better lives. The first couple who had their papers made out were Jeremiah Bury and Lizzie "Watkins, aged, respectively, thirty-four and twenty-one years. They had been living together on North Carolina avenue, between Thirteenth and Fourteenth stiects northeast, for a jear. They looked very penitent, and the bride spokeonlym whispers. ShewasquiteaFmall woman, very short, black, and very well dressed for the ceremony. Robert Swail and Martha Johnson, fifty two and forty-five, widow and widower, were next prepared. Robert Swail said that he wa once a Catholic, but as ho had been living in this way ho couldn't go to con fession. but heintended to go back to church, as he was now Qualified. They had been living together two years. BELLE AMONG THE BRIDES. Frances Goodman was the belle among the brides. She came to be married to Robert Demines, a well-to-do young man, a painter by trade. Ho was immaculately dressed himself, with turned-down collar, white cravat , and silver sword pin. The bride was arrayed in terra cotta silk, gold bracelets, two gold tings, bJack plush cape, brown straw hat, J winy blue ribbons and bunches of violets. &he was quite modest and kept her for "linger in her mouth most of the time. Both wrote good hands and affixed their rignatures rapidly and boldly. Joseph Jones and Delsie Adams were another neatly gotten up pair. Joseph wore a white carnation to set off his good r JjK' 7 if fr '4S' . (info '? v Joys and Tribulations i ' Pittsburar Bispatchv dress, and Delslo was gowned In brown Bilk and wore a Bailor hat quite jauntily and independently. Roger Jackson and Sarah Williams, aged sixtyandfifty-two,widowerandwidOw,"Bat lovingly together till the minister w as ready. An auspicious incident occurred In Issu ing the certificate to Albert Morris and Annie Dixon, thirty and twouty years of age. Mrs. Morris inadvertently wroto her name above that of her huBbnnd. "You havo put him down in an humblo position," said the minister. "That's all right," said tho brido; "and I'm going to keep him down," a sentiment which waB applauded by tho other brides especially. THE GROUP MARRIAGES. Thero were quite a number of hpectators of tho marriages, who seemed to be es pecially struck with the novelty of the group marriages. It was a splendid oppor tunity for a snap-shot or a famous picture. Joining hands, bowing heads, and the Bhy caresses in unison were like some thing new in military tactics. It was de cidedly a company drill, or the stand upon the floor for a good old-fashioned Virginia reel. Nearly every couple paused a while out side the door to havo a parley on the now situation. The brides, of course, carried the certificates, which one of them colled a "diploma" and another a "receipt." The minister had his hands quite full, as the record of tho day's proceedings above will show. There will be another matinee of mar riages to-day. The colored population is quite evidently seeing that they havea good thing in the generous offer of The Times, and they have all the appearance of being sincerely grateful. Fully thirty applications are now filed for future wed dings. I e UNDER THE EDMUNDS ACT. Two Moro Couples Brought Into tho Law's Clutches. Only two caseB of violations of the Ed munds act were tried in the police court yesterday. The first was James Gray and Ida Muller, and as tho evidence was Bufficient Judge Miller Imposed a sentence of $10 or thirty dayB each.

K Glimpse of Real Life In 1845 the inhabitants of the city of C In Ohio were amazed to learn that Mr. Warner, an old and respected citizen, had gone off and married Margaret Dorn, a woman very much his inferior, with noth ing to recommeud her but a bright com plexion, blue eyes and a pretty Irish face. Margaret Dorn occupied a small but neat cottage not far from Mr. Warner's home, and any morning she might be found pick ing the weeds out of her little garden, gathering flowers to brighten her solitary home, or clipping the withered leaves from the brlghUyellow marigolds that bordered the path leading to the little white door 9u which the brass knocker shone so bril liantly in the sunlight. People for miles around would stop at Margaret's door with orders for fancy work, mendingembroidery etc. Her marvelous ability with a needle had been the means of supporting her comfortably for years. Mr. Waruer'siiiahleii an ut w.iba patroness of Margaret's, nnct orten asked her nephew to call for or leave a package on his way to or from business; in this way Margaret and Mr. Warner became quite good friends. The latter lieing a stibceptible bachelor, Tell iuto the wily clutches of the pretty J null wouiun. Lre long Margaret learned to watch regularly for her admirer. Mouths passed and four or Jivo iilRhts a. week Mr. "Warner would rind his waynayid to tin; Mute cot tage where Margaret strove to make tilings as lioiilnliK-e ami co&y as pontiililf, in order not only tornscliuitclicrl over, butt ii ciiluineo l.tn t,. t ' JJ1D jiJltlliilliKru. I One wlntur eve, when the wind was blowing a perfect gale and haiihimies were beating against the p.uvinent, .Mar garet and Mr. Warner drove orr to the Sheriffs house, nit iiattil In a tivaiilltulp.iiK, where the courthouse xtood. After knocking and knocking, lmt all in vain, Air. Warner was about to turn away and go home, when Mnrgaivt, weeping pit irmly, pleaded with him to iapi:g::in. Tins last frantic knock tn cc-.ii-d in .arousing t lie hheriff, wiioe; ruff ly di'inandcd, "Who's there?" "I aniMr. Williams, and I wantypu to mniry tne to this woman.

A gold piece slipped into he m.gi$rrnte's palm silenced his tongue,. a id I-e tu'ienly and sleepily performed the vr-inouy, pro nouncing them husband. :nd wife. A more uncanny scene 'unuot be con ceived, as the rain beat on -ill -u' -i of the carriage which conveyed he " imping bride and Indifferent husband to their uspictive homes. " Mr. Warner had made Margaret Jus wife, and then cruelly let t heron Mi.it twfui wed ding night he to make his .ibode, is us ual, with his aunt, and she t j :-.iiy for her self in her own little home. As Margaret K-came less -ible to v ork, Mr. Warner bent her checks from time to time, which enabled her to mploy a mid dle aged woman an nurse 'ind iiotn-okeeper, aud when a few monihs Inter i little girt was born, Margaret felt tint 'it Ka.st now she had a daughter to work for aud to love, even If her husband hud desert rd her. The mother regainedJiT strength, caring for and nourishing her htlle vrirl, wlo was such acomtort and a joy 'n tie tittle hlome. Three years passed and Julia, toddling about the house, playing with her little toys, was a familiar figure, or prancing on the lawn with her pet dog. Passers-by often halted to admire this bright, vivac ious little girl who was so radiantly lovely, her little gingham frock and huge sunbonnctseeming only to add greater charm to her freshness and purity. The child had inherited her mother's beauty which had captured tho father in years gone by, Mr. Warner kept track of his daughter and one morning, when her mother had just stepped in the house for a moment, heen ticed the child to follow him. Julia was installed in the kindergarten in connection with the young ladies' semi nary in the town and an extra amount was paid for tuition, with the understanding that close vigil should be kept over her. As for Ihe mother, when she tound that the only light of her life had l)een extin guished and fully realized her inability to recover her lovt child, grief overpowered the poor woman and wrecked her health so materially that she was confined to a hos pital for months, and when convalescent was removed to a sanitarium. The instructors learned to love the child, who was not only beautiful to look upon, but brilliant of intellect and an apt scholar. As j ears advanced their charge steadily progressed. It- was Julia whp was appointed to sing little songs or play upon the piano for the entertainment of the boy students, who were invl' d from a neighboring col lege to attend the soirees given every Friday for the mutual improvement and amusement of the boys and girls. These evening fetes would close with dancing and a collation, and the boys and gitls brought together in this way formed stanch friendships. Julia, like many other girls who were bright and witty, had a dash of diablerie in her make-up. Her fancy inclined toward one of these boy visitors, a senior,'' when Mie was but a crirl of ftrtcen, in oneof the lower grades. When out promenading- she would steal away from the class to catch a glimppe of Howard nt his study window, who, know ing the hour for recir-ntion, was on the nleit for the youngj ladies with their tutor. j -, Sundays, by prccial 'permission, the young ladies wore allowed escorts to pt-d from chapel, and on these walks liownra poured lo'tn iik anient tale of love into the willing "cars of pretty little Julia, who witt Jst about to enter a ncwSj' path of lite full of. idvcnt.ires. -- Little did she kuoav itow wholly in crpable pJip was- n" ttcidini' tin Mrange fkld that b wept Icfore her. - Ho wn n.1 uorrcspocdi;! wit h hi s sweetheart- thy- tyinsj notes to iLc-'ciylwQ a teightod YOU GET BOOK Yf?e yyasfyington Wes: PLEASE DELIVER AT No Book .-.

The midnight express carried the couple far away, safe from those who might he in pursuit of the fugitives. Julia wrote to her father acknowledging her wrong and asking his forgiveness and blessing, hut Mr.- Warner was so wroth with his daughter with having acted so rashly that he vowed he would disin herit her. Julia wrote persistently to her father, but after Uiat first unfortuunte epistle, all other letters were returned with the seal unbroken. When the young people found that fi nancial assistance from Mr. Warner was not forthcoming, they decided to begin their married life on a tiny scale, live frugally and manage to the best or their abilities. After all, when love holds so large v place in one's heart economy is nor such a dreary study, a;d an abundance of smiles and en couraging words go farther toward making a happy home than do costly furnishings and extravagant surroundings. The bright laugh of a beloved one has a truer silvery sound than has the chink of nunierousdollarslnthe pockets of one whom we simply endure because of his wealth. Howard and Julia worked hard, and as time rolled on we might have seen them on any evening ensconced in their little room in a cout ry boarding house, laying plans for the future. The young husband knew that sooner or later his father would learn of his abrupt depurtuie from college, m he and his wlic wrote a lOltlt letter O.VUiainins tnsir Eltua- tion in such a pathetic way that unless the mn.ii hfifl i henrt of stone he surelv must ..relent. 'Two 'days after this letter reached its destination paterfamilias-was aboard the traia which came steaming into the eta- tion. ami in less than half an hour later the father, Howard and the new wjfe were chatting. merrily, everything forgiven and all reconciled.

Julia's striking resemblance to her mother caused her father-in-law to reflect, and j soon the whole mystery of her life was an i open secret. Howard "Williams found it comparatively easy practicing law with his father' assist ance, and as he had always been petted and pampered he still found his path In life was smooth and sunshiny. Mr. "Williams, sr., being a widower, was glad to establish a comfortable home and have his son's wife assume the responsi bilities of the house. Julia made a clever little housewife and things were decidedly more comfortable than she had anticipated; still her domes tic happiness was shadowed by the knowl edge of her father's guilt and the uncer tainty as to her mother's whereabouts. Nature had endowed Mr. "Warner with a cold heart and a relentless disposition, and while he mourned his daughter's loss, he never sought to repair the damage done by once again taking her to his heart and for giving her.
