At the International and Great Northern depot this morning a Lioht reporter, la quest of news, wis attracted by the pitiful appear ance of a young woman, who walked up and down the plsllotm. On accosting her the made signs that the English lsngusge was a stranger to her. She spoke Swedish, the said, and likewise tome German. She wat pretted to lay tomclhlng of hcrtetf and Ithe tittle two month t old gitl the wat hugging to her breast. Her story was the old, old one of woman's trust and man's betrayal. She stated that she came from Christlania In Sweden. She was there engsged to a young countryman of hers, to whom she had surrendered her honor in return for a marriage promise. lie had preceded her some seven months ago, cross ing the ocean and journeying to Minnesota. She exhibited his picture, and hit address as J. Johansen, Mankato, Hide Earth county, Minnesota. Iter object In following him was to retrieve her reputation In the eyes of her kindred by com pelling him to fulfill bit vow. Arriving In Minnetota, the found her lover and father of her child, but wat tbunderttruck and engulfed In grief to find him already married. She wat without means, her child that wat born on mid-ocean, needed her care and support, and accepting $50 from her betrayer she turned her face southward, hoping to teach Galveston and find tome relatives there. Her money gave out yesterday and last night dur ing all of Its damp and Inclemency she trudged her weary vigils. The woman It quite young, handtome and attractive, and doubtless In her far away home, with her.wealth of golden hair, fair skin and bright, blue eyes, the wat a charming belle among the descendant! of the Sea Klngt. While talking with her, she was approached by a German lady, to whom she repeated her story, as tears filled her eyes. There was a sisterly embrace, a mingling of tears, when the good German woman started to leave, bidding the distressed girl to await her. In a few minutes she returned with an ex press wagon. The blue painted klstcr on which she had sat many hours on her out ward lea journey was lifted Into the wagon, followed by the mother and child and the kind old woman. Few words were passed. The girl had found a friend, and, at least, a temporary home. It was an affecting sight. The relief rendered was done so sisterly, to Impulsively. It was the bounty of a rich love for a distressed stranger woman that was tendered. It lacked the flourish of trumpet! that to often accompanies the emotional bounties ol the fashionably charita ble, and it makes one feel the quickening Impulse of that "touch of nature which makes the world akin." It was the lament of the heroine of the New Magdalen that "Society tubtcrlb'i money to reclaim me,but society never takci me back," yet In thit cate It It to be hoped that more tinned againtt than tinning, the thame of mother and child will not follow them In this new land nor debar them occupying a re spectable social position.

At the conclusion of the marriage rites the as sembled party partook ol an elegant supper which had been prepared by Mrs. Schmidt, while the hospitable Joe Schmidt wat kept busy opening champagne. A number of toasts were offered and responded to. Mr. Morris told a story ef the first match in the Garden of Eden, and laughter prevailed. The following is one of the toasts offered to L. Rouvant: "May your domestic rela tives run as smooth as the machinery In your docks; may your future be always as bright as the sparkling gems In your store window, and as you ascend the hill of prosperity may you never meet your Iriends descending." Mr. Kouvant and bride will take a short trip to Laredo and Monterey. The Light wishes the new firm much success and con tinued happiness. " NABBED For Theft ofTwo Hundred Hollars, Com mitted InAuatlll. A Deputy Marshal of Austin appeared at the F-ivilbn saloon on Houston street, on Saturday night about 9 o'clock, and pro ceeded without any waste of ceremony to ad just the "rrelielt" on the wrists of Tom Goody, a colored employee of the saloon Everyone In the taloon wat about as turpritcd as the negro. Mr. blade, one ol the proprie. tori, called for an explanation, when he wat Informed that Goody wat wanted In Austin for the theft ol $200, stolen tome months ago. The prisoner, protesting his Innocence, was marched off, and by this time It In Aus tin. Mr. Slide ipeakt highly of the prison er't conduct for honesty while In hit employ.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. Sillll. AMUSEMENT COLUMN. MACBETH. Lnrge Audience Greeted .Mr. Keene h the Thune of Cawdor. On Saturday last Mr. Thomas W. Keene terminated hit engagement in the rendition of Macbeth. He played to a crowded audience, in fact there was scarcely ttanding room. To say anything ft altering of Mr. Keene to those who had the good fortune to tee him here would be almost like painting the lily. While he doet not belong to the muicular school of actors so ably represented by Forest or McCullough, neither does he lall Into the groove so common with Barrett by attempt ing to carry an audience by tricks or gags. He is scholarly In his elocution, of fine physique and has an honest appreciation of his role. Though only some four years have elapsed since Mr. Keene began starring it, his star is in the ascendent, and he'hai made a reputation throughout the country to which San Antonio critici will tay "amen" mott heartily. Hit tupport wai above the average. Mr. Gotthold, as Macduff, won hit thare of ap- plaute, while Miss Hambiio, as Lady Macbeth, particularly in the sleep walking tcene, recalled tome of the tplendid acting ol Charlotte Cusbman. And right here let us remark that the crowded houses which greeted Keene here are an evidence that our citirens know how to appreciate and pay for good companies. A wandering parly ol "barn stormers," no mat ter how much or how gaudily the city may be billed is usually a loss to the management. If the public are treated to first-class perform ances Ihey will furnish them in coin and in appreciation, and the legitimate drama, not the tociety play of gush and impossible scenes, should always have at Jeast its ihare of the leaton upon the boardt.

In answer to the demand of surrender, the man, In a twinkling reached the back door and ran out. Bang went Chadwcll's pistol, but still the colored man continued his flight, as though for dear life. Tatter, patter, his naked feet struck the pavement, and Flores street was soon reached, but here a second bullet from Goodnch'i pistol whistling In close proximity to his ear brought him to, and panting and trembling he wat led away to the county jail. ' DELIRIOUST' A Wctlmof Too Much I.Iuor lluns Franti cally Through the Streets. Just as the theatre wai discharging itt mul titude of play goert on Saturday night, where they had "tupped full of horrors" in witness ing Macbeth, a tragedian not advertised on any bill rushed frantically down Alamo street, startling every one aa he yelled "murder!" He dashed along continuing to repeat his direful alarm when he suddenly fell Into the embraces of a policeman. He could give no account of himself, not even hit name, nor why he had selected "murder" for a refrain. It wat a clear case of jim-jams. The poor victim of too much "budge" was taken In and cared for. EXCURSIONISTS, A Tarty of Western Capitalists V.n ltoute t Han Antoulo.
