The obliging young man was exiled to Europe by his parents to forget the girl whose only fortune whs her face, but she became the fashion. No marshaling of the social world in town, at Newport, or Tuxedo was com plete without this rose of a girl. Last fall she married Ferdinand Yznaga, the brother of the Duchess of Manchester, better known by her fornir title of Lady Mandeville, and is now abroad. A really beautiful French woman is a rarity.

The mine operators say they will fill the places with negroes. The only sensational feature of the strike is a report that it was brought about by the efforts of the Penusj-lvania iron manufacturers who want to cause a shut down of the fur naces in this district, and it is claimed that these iron men have promised the miners strong financial support in the event of a prolonged strike.

Washington, Dec, 3. Delegate Caine, the tall and handsome repre sentative on tho floor of the house of the wayward Mormon brethren in Utah, says that that territory will no longer ask for admittance into the union as a state. He says that the good people out there feel that they have been shabbily treated and they have figuratively got their (lander up and will jog along in their own way until the United Htates gets sorry and, dropping on its knees, begs them to plea-e come and be a state. Utah seems to be situated something like the very wicked man, who, after death, was refused admittance into both the abodes of the spirits. The Lord re fused him and even the devil didn't want him around. Utah has been pre emptorily refused admittance into the union of states by the Hejmblican party, because of its sinfulness, and now the Democrats have gone back on it. At least that is what Elder Caine says. Ho declares that he and his people are mad at both parties and will ask no more favors of either. TUESDAY IN CONGRESS. Senate. Washington, Dec. 3.
