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

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.

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
There were two sets of brides and bride
grooms, who "were joined in a flock, eight
having stood up in one room and fourteen
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

dress, and Delslo was gowned In brown
Bilk and wore a Bailor hat quite jauntily
Roger Jackson and Sarah Williams, aged
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
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
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

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.

regularly for her admirer. Mouths passed

One wlntur eve, when the wind was
blowing a perfect gale and haiihimies
were beating against the p.uvinent, .Mar

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.

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
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

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
Providence deals with His creatures Just
ly, and one day, without the slightest warn
ing, when en routo to his old homestead at
C , Mr. Warner was stricken with
apoplexy, and when the train arrived at
the station he was carried into the waiting
room, where he died soon afterward.
Mr, "Williams, sheriff and coroner of the
town , was sent to ins peel the body and put
a seal upon his effects.
Upon investigation it was found that Mr.
"Warner had died intestate, so Julia, bis
only child and heir, came into possession of
his entire estate

Summary Treatment of a Itns.ian.
In the Russian town of Kneuimiiewlec,
In Podolia, near the Austrian frontier,
lived a surgeon with hia family, who had
some patients in the neighboring Galician
village and therefore frequently crossed
the Austrian frontier.
This awakened tbe suspicions of the
Russian authorities, who concluded that
I he was an Austrian spy. A commissary
l of police arrived from St. Petersburg
I at Krzetunlewiec and handed the sergeant
I of the frontier guard a pretei.ded secret
i order of the mobilization of tho army-.in-I
structing him to sound the snrgueu as to
j whether he was willing to buy it. The
sergeant d:d as he was bidden,
j Tbe surgeon obtained the money soma
j 100 rubles oflered it to tte teigeant and
! received the sham older. The next night
tbe Cossacks surrounded his house and
' surprised bini copying the document. Ha
i was fettered and taken away.
! This occurred some weeks ago and
I nothing has been heard since of the tui
fortunate man. His wile addresi ed a peti
tion to the czar, asking that the fate of the
! fatherof herchildrenmight be made known
i lo ;r- "ueflas uoY received oy leie-
i 6rapn the following short answer: Con-
slder yourself from this day a widow." It
I is not known whether this means that the
surgeon was executed ortnt to Siberia.
