A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. A Southern Couple Married with a Forged Cer tlfleate. A letter to the Richmond Dispatch from Staunton, Va., says there has been considerable excitement there for sev. eral days oyer a marriage which was made In Joke, but turns out to be a se rlous matter.. Miss E. Drew Glbhs, of Mississippi, who graduated two weeks ago at tbe Wesleyan Female Seminary, told her friends last Sunday afternoon that she was going to drive In the coun try with a friend, II. F. Wilder, or Geor gia. Two young ladles and three or four young gentlemen accompanied them. They returned some hours af terward, Miss Glbbs going to tho bouse or some friends, and Mr. Wilder to the hotel, and leaving here the next day. It leaked out tbe next day that there had been a marriage under the follow ing circumstances: lly some means which so far remain a mystery, a blank form of marriage li cense, such as is used In the County Clerk's olllce here, was obtained and filled In with the names of the parties as above, the bride's ace belnc nut at 22. and the groom at 23. bis business a railroad conductor, ami all the usual questions answered, to which was signed the name of J. II. Itoberts, Dep uty Clerk. The parties furnished with this paper E resented themselves to Iter. George A. ong, at Mount Sidney, some eight miles from Staunton, on tbe Winchester pike, and by him the marriage ceremony was duly and solemnly performed, as Is cer tified to over his signature, the certificate bearing date Juno IS, 18S4. The license was returned to the City Clerk's olllce, and Newton Argenbrlght, the Clerk, promptly wrote tho following endorse ment upon it: "The within license was returned to this office this 17th June, 1881, Said license was not Issued from this olllce, and no application fo the Issue thereof 10 " within named parties was ever made to mo at the date given or at any other time. No person by the name of J. II. Thomas was ever detiutv In this olllce, and Is totally unknown to me. In J't. d ""'" Newtox AiinmniiiaiiT, Clerk." jt , SRU tho parties to the marriage, had been emraired. thouch thcr had never tnct till within a week or two be- fore the marriage, and that the bride and groom and their friends accompany ing them all regarded the matter In the light ofa Joke at first, but thoso better Informed as to tho law assert that the marriage la a legal one, and nothing hut a divorce can annul It. The matter has therefore assumed a very serious shape. The groom has disappeared, tho bride remains In Staunton, nnd her friends havo been Informed or the unpleasant affair. It Is also stated that the Attorney General or Mississippi, who Is. perhaps. n relative ol the bride, has telegraphed that be will be In Staunton In a few days to Investigate the matter.

One delightful oppor tunity was presented In the excursion that Mr. P. II. Freer Inaugurated to tho Medina park. Two excursion trains were runout to the park lrom tho city, ono leaving nt 0 o'clock In tho morning and the other leaving at 2 in the after noon. Tho early train carried a goodly crowd, but tho 2 o'clock train caught tho majority, and when Its load had been emptied nt tho park the scene wns greatly enlivened. This was the first excursion of the season and the trip was taken advantage or by a host or over healed denizens, who had becoino sur feited with the attractions offered In tho city and longed for r change and a cool sequestered spot In wblch to pass tho day. Everything passed ofl pleasantly In the main, and only an occasional In cident occtired to disturb tho peace and lulclmle. A slight difference about sonio beef precipitated a collision be tween two men present, but they wero quickly quieted and order once more restored. A few quaffed too deeply tho refreshing lager, and In consequence be came slightly mixed, but nothing serious occurred. 'Ihcso excursions aro a great treat and jtro eagerly taken advantage of to escape for a day from tbo hot city and Its clouds or penetrating dust. At night the returning trains poured their crowds Into the illy, refreshed and pleased by tho trip. Last night the reporter on his rambles in search of Hems and a place to keep cool, found himself beneath tho shadows or the sturdy oaks at Jonas' garden, with tho silvery moonbeams glistening on their verdant leaves. Professor King, tho athlete, was entertaining an im mense crowd, which was so great that room could not bo found on the largo platform for its accommodation. The scene presented wns an Interesting one and showed that tbo happy throng bad thrown care to tho winds, nnd was bent on tho full enjoyment of tho charming evening. Tho Fourth of July exhibition nt this garden was Immense, and Jonas did himself credit by 'the pat riots display ho inado. After the per formance last night the floor was cleared ot tbebenehes anil chairs and the dancers took possession and kept It until the hours grew small. Strolling henco the reporter next brought tip nt Sotnmers' popular garden, where also he round an Immense crowd seeking pleasure and refreshment. Tho polished floor or the large platform sup ported the feet or many merry dancers, who found It Impossible to resist the en trancing strains that camo In rbytbmlo flow from tho band. When the danco was done, the tired terpslcbercans sought the refreshing shades or the ar bors, ami witn tue smiting moonuoams stealing through the clustering leaves, refreshed themselves with the Icy liquids at hand and exchanged soft sentimental ities wnue tney awaited uio nrst notes of the next dance to call them again to tho floor. Many visitors find their way to this cool retreat, and there laugh defiance to Old Sol anil his burning rays. The air Is ever cool and pleasant here, nnd one Antra all tho attractions and moro that are drawn from a day's trip to the coun try. The melodious strains of tho splendid new orchestra drew many witliln tbe bounds or Mahncke's tavorlto Mission garden, and tho convenient street cars carried many n pleasure-seeking passen ger to bis gates. Tbe music, the sort cool shade, the exhilarating beverages and bountiful lunch were not tbe least or the many attractions here presented. 'Tis hero the weary citizen, with his wife and little ones, resorts to enjoy for a brief hour tbe refreshing breezes and delightful muslo. With eaoh succeed ing week new attractions are added. and the throng.of patrons grows larger anu more appreciative, jinuncto iuokb to the entertainment of his guests, und always sees to It none go away dis pleased, lie contemplates enlarging ids grounds to accommodate his host ot visitors. He had a big Fourth or July celebration that tested his resources, but he nroved cnual to the occasion. So the torrid tiunday was passed by a largo number or San Antonio's citizens who round their way from point to point over ino convenient lines oi street ran wflr. that most noDiilar mode of convev- anee In this cltv.

"Jly boy, what are you doing with that clear In your mouth? Throw the nithy thing away," said a clerloal-look lng man to a bootblack who stood near the Globe hotel puffing a cigar.
