The Sickles Elopement.
The elopement of Miss Carrie
Sickles, daughter of General Daniel E.
Siokles, from Paris, with an English
man named McCarthy,, has been given
the pnblio by cable dispatches, Gen
eral Sickles pursued the pair to Lon
don, where he had them arrested. The
young lfcdy is ebout 25 years of age,
and w very accomplished. She has a
superb figure and charming manners,
and for a long time
country. The writer of this, while in
Baltimore several years ago, was told
a story about Miss Siokles by a school
friend of hers which is fnll of pathetic
interest just now. A little party had
been given at the residence of a lady
in Baltimore, where the*writer met
Miss Sickles, and was st:$ick by her
qnick-witted repartees and her readi
ness to chat about current topics of
interest. Meeting a school-mate of
hers next day, the writer alluded to
this. "Oh. yes," wac the reply, **she
was gay enough then, poor child, bnt
I think she is almost broken-hearted,
notwithstanding her vivacity." A.few
questions brought out the whole story.
General Siokles' first wife, the mother
of his daughter, us will be remember
ed. was oonuected in the famous scan
dal with Philip Barton Key, the dis
trict attorney at Washington, D.C,
Sicklès shot Key in 1859, and killed
Ku, wa§ tried for bis murder, and
was acquitted. His wife died shortly
cfle'-, and before her daughter was old
enough to understand the disgrace of
it all. General Siokles, with iaalous
watohfulness, kept-the facts oonneoted
with her mother's share in the tragedy
a secret from his daughter, and she
knew nothing about it until she was
nearly 19. She was a sensitive, loving
girl, and worshipped the memoir of
the mother whom she had been taught
to love, and she frequently spoke of
her. to her friends. Miss Siokles went
to sohool. ia Baltimore, and one day
while reciting in a class she had a
slight qparrel with a girl from Wash
ington. After school a number of girls
were seated together, among them be
ing Miss Shkles and the girl with
whom she had quarreled. Alias Siokles
apologized for what she had said, but
the other girl refused to be comforted,
and finally grew very angry, and began
to taunt Miss Siokles abont the ter
rible story of her. mother's wrong-do
ing. Miss Sickle demanded an explana
tion, which
young lady almost lost her reason in
the attack of illness which followed.
She left the sohool when she recovered
her health, and soon afterwards joined
her father. It was said she aoted very
wildly toward him for. keeping the
story hidden from her, and reproaohed
him bitterly. The effeot of the revela
tion. was that Miss Sickles' manner
and aotions changed from what they
had been before, and she began to
worry her father by hor apparent
heartlessness and fondness for the
excitement t connected with the life of
a belle in an Amerioan city like Wash
ington. In connection with this it is .
not out of place to say that the Keys*
a belle in this
given, and the poor
M a family, have not prospered sinoe
that oeouroooe in Washington. The
son of Philip Barton Key (whose
father wrote the "Star-Spangled
Banner") is now an actor, and, as
"James Barton," he took part in the
performances of the "Pullman Palace
Oar Toomstbfc" who were the first
oompany to appear at the Opera house,
in Pittsburg this winter.

"It has been a long time since the
Opera House stage has shook under
the strain of so much genuine humor
and boisterous hilarity. The size of
the audience was only limited by th*
oapacity of the house, and the shout
of laughter were continuous from tha
time the. curtain first

Armstrong, the Sou of Momns, are

Morton is unquestionable one of the
best negro comedians in the country
to-day, and |his fund-of humor seems
inexhaustible.. He is good in every
thing, Words fail to describe the
