Coming State Fairs and Expositions. The Paris Tragedy--The Story of Mrs.
Wetmore's Love and Suicide.
A Paris special to tho New York
IJrrald says: The Wotinore-Anglesey
affair continues to engross public, atten
tion, and, although it is the general
theme of conversation here, it Is curious
to say that, with a single exception
that of the lottatra this morning all
mention of it has been kept out of the
newspapers. All sorts of rumors are
current in connection with this fact,
which, for the honor of tho profession, I
shall avoid noticing. I prefer to set it
down to the prudent rosorve which the
French press is always known to prac
tice on such delloate oocasions.
Having been introduced to l.ady Pol
ham Clinton lately, at the house of a
mutual fiiond, I have profited by my
slight acquaintance to obtain some in
formation regarding the melancholy af
fair. Her Ladyship receiv ed me courte
ously, and expressed her willingness to
tell me all she knew of tho circum
stances. She hereelf soemod overcome
with grief, and her eyes tilled with tears
when she began to speak about her de
ceased friend. After a few general re
marks about the rumors that were in
circulation, I told her what 1 had stated
in my telegram of Thursday evening,
and which she pronounced to be in the
' May I ask," I said, " if you are In
possession of Lord Anglesey's letters to
" No," she replied ; " they are in the
hands of her lawyer.Mr. Gardner.of tho
Champs Klysees. They are all oouched
in terms which convey the idea that he
had tlie most passionate affection for
Mrs. Wetmoro, and in no less than sev
en of them he declared that he would
marry her the moment she got the di
vorce from her husband. I have even
In my possession a ring which he gave
her in the first days of hurt month."
(Her Ladyship here went and brought
in a small basket containing among
other effects of the deceased a lady's
plain gold ring, bearing the following
inscription on the inside: "To Annie
from Anglesey, June 1, 1880.") Lady
Albert Clinton then continued, " Mrs.
Wetmore came to Europe about three
years ago with her son, a lad about
thirteen years of age. I think she met
Lord Anglesey for the first time in
Spain. When she left America she had
no idea of permanently sejiarating her
self from her husband, of whom she al
ways spoke with remorse, but Lord An
glesey turned her head by promising to
marry her if she got a divorce.
This took so much time that he got
tired of his bargain and deserted her as
soon as she had broken loose from the
only real tie which bound her to life
affection tor her child. She was a
handsome, affectionate and confiding
poor dear. She was so faithful to Lord
Anglesey, and believed in him so en
tirely. You know he lived on tho Av
enue Kleber occupying separate apart
ments in the same house. Three days
before her death she said, speaking of
her husband :
" ' William was always kind to me,
but we had nothing in common. We
were not mnde to five happily together.
He was much too religious for me, and
was not satisfied unless I went to
church all day Sunday. Iiul he was a
good, kind man. I never ought to have
left him. My fate should be a warning
to American women who go abroad
without their legitimate protectors.'
" But she rarely gave expression to
those remorseful ioelings, for she loved
Anglesey to distraction. Her last meet
ing with bim was on Sunday, June 20.
He told her he had to go to London on
business. She said to him with a kind
of instinctive feeling, ' You will bo trtie
to me, Henry, and come back as quick
as you can P'
" Ho replied that ha loved her as
much as ever, and parted with her with
every demonstration of affection,
although he knew he had written her a
lettor dated tlie 19th (the day before)
in which he bade hor farewell forever,
and gave her to understand that all was
at an end between them. This letter
was handed to her the next day by Mr.
Stone, Lord Anglesey's Secretary, and
it drove her almost to madness. It was
then that I brought her to my house,
for she had no friends here. And in the
letter to which I have just referred lxrd
Anglesey gave her to understand that
she must leave her apartments and
write no more than one letter to him,
To this she. wrote a reply of almost
touching character, in which she ap
pealed to his Lordship's manhood.
' Remember,1 she said, ' all I have
lost for you. Can you expect that God
will prosper you or yonrs, when you are
capable of such a dreadful wrong?' In
another passage she says : ,
" ' Can it be possible that you have a
conscience or feeling, or that you, a nor
bleinun, aro willing to turn me out pen
niless into the world after all your
promises, to say nothing of your pre
tended affection up to the week bofore
your marriage!" "
I was next shown a number of letters
from Ixird Anglesey, authenticated by
his family coat of arms. They were all
couched in the most endearing terms,
commencing with "My lovely Anna,"
"My Hoatost," and closing with ex
travagant assurances of undyipg love,
esteem and fidelity. Seven of these let
ters, Ijtiiy Clinton said, and as Mrs.
Wotmore's lawyer assured me, contain
explicit and unequivocal promises of
marriage, and cover a period of nearly
three years. When It was announced
that the Marquis had married Mrs.
Wodehouse, Mrs. Wetmore's lawyer,
who knew all the circumstances, urged
that a suit for breach of promiso should
bo instituted. A correspondence to that
effect was commenced with the Mar
quis' lawyers, who replied that? their
client repudiated the allegation as to the
promise, and that it would be useless to
try and make a case, as there was no,
law punishing breach of promise, in
France, and that an offense committed
there could not be tried In England.
Unhappily this proved to be the case. '
. The deceased took no interest tn all
this, the idea of death engrossing her
mind from the moment she heard of
Lord Anglesey's marriage. Every ef
fort made to calm her was vain, anil she
paced up and down her room the image
of despair. This lasted until Wednes
day morning, when, on entering her
apartment, 1-ndy Albert Clinton found
her in the last agony, with eyes glaring,
hands clenched aud face so distorted
that she was hardly recognisable. The
servants wero immediately sent for modi,
cal aid, but it was 10 o'clock before a
dootor oould be found. Every effort
was then made to save the poor sufferer,'
but in vain. She writhed in dreadful
torture until about 8, when she breathed
When the Marquis beard of the mel
ancholy event he sent word through his
lawyer that he would oontribnte 50 to
ward the expenses of the f uneruL . The

The deceased waa lady of refined
and pleasing manners. She was of me
dium bight, with dark eyes and hair.
Her features had something of the Jew
ish cast, and she was graceful, and at
tractive, with especially pretty hands
feet, and her tUjuro waa faultiest,.
She Was kind and antttihle to an ex
treme, and of a sweet and torbenring
disposition', her only fault feeing,
Lady Albert Clinton said, ; thiif she
loved not wisely,1 but too well.""
A Good Horse to Trader On.
Tiikui! Is a gentleman by the name of
Smith living in Galveston, says the
Kcu3 of that city, who keeps a kind of a
livery stable. Among other horses in
his custody was a line bay horse belong
ing to Jones. This horse, In cavorting
about the stablo-yard, ran against a
wagon and broke his leg. Of course
Smith was responsible. All he hnd to
was to sond for a policeman, have
the animal shot and pay Jones about
$00, the value of the animal. Smith
notified the policeman and started out
see Jones and inform him officially
about the accident. Now, Smith is con
siderable of a wag. Iiappeningto meet
Urown, he asked if Brown did not wane
buy a horse. It had been the dream
Brown's life to sit behind a horse of
his own, and call out "g'lang." He
wanted a cheap horse and one that was
safe, so when Smith put the question to
him Brown replied, "Maybe so; if you
nave tne rigm Kind ni a norse. is it a
stead v, rjuiet horse t"
"lie is the quietc
quietest horse you ever
" Won't he bite or kick, and Is he not
likely to run nwayP"
" If he bites, kicks or runs away, I'll
give your money back."
"Humph," said Brown, "what are
yon asking for the wonderful animal?"
" I'll let you have him cheap. He is
that fine bay horse Jones nsed to own.
I'll lot you have him for $21. Give me
1 down and your note for $20 more,
and it is a bargain. I have no more use
the horse, but I want money right
Brown thought to himself, " This is
the golden opportunity. Smith has
been tampering with cotton futures, and
strapped. I'm sorry for him, but
business is business. I'm not his
guardian ;" so he planked down the dol
lar and gave his note for the balance.
If Brown was pleased with the trade,
Smith was still more so. He called to
several friends and treated the crowd
with the dollar, after which the proces
sion formed and marched down to the
stable to see Brown's new purchase.
When they got there the policeman had
already shot the poor brute, and he
looked like ail he needed was an inquest.
Brown looked very much that way him
self. He turned pale and then got red
behind tlie ears. Then he smiled, but
was not a particularly healthy smile.
Smith tried to help matters, and, as
soon as the crowd quit holding their
" Now, Brown, I don't want you to
tell anybody that I swindled you. I
call on these gentlemen to witness that
I've done the square thing. This is
Jones' bay horse, the identical one I
sold you. I guaranteed he would not
bite nor kick, and you can not provoke
him to run nway. I think he fills the
bill. 1 want you to take him off or I'll
charge you for keeping him."
" Boys," said llrown. " don't give me
away. I know I am not the only fool
Galveston Island. Let's go antihunt
for a duplicate, and I will 9ot 'em up."
They strolled out and met Robinson.
"Look here, Robinson, don't you
want a right good horse at a bargain t
I've just bought Jones' fine bay horse.
He cost $80 originally, and he is in just
the same condition he was when 1 got
"Oh I" said Robinson, "times are
hard and horse feed is awful high. A
high-stepping horse like Jones' bay will
eat his head off in no time."
"That's where you are fooling your
self. He eats less than any horse you
over saw. By thunder, no horse can eat
less than he can."
"Ain't he a little frisky?"
Itrown shook his head and replied :
You are doing that horse injustice.
You can tell by looking at him that he
not that kind of an animal. I'll let you
have him for just what I gave for him
$21 $1 down and your nolc, secured
by such men as Helilenheimer, for the
balance. I've got to have money."
Robinson thought it waa mean to take
advantage of Brown's distress, but then
was not his lookont. If he was out of
his head, why didn't he have the Court
appoint him a guardian P So be plank
ed down $1 and gave the note, on con
dition that tho horse Would go in a
" You bet," replied Brown, " he'll
go in a wagon. He won't go in any
thing else. Come, boys, let's spend
After they had wiped off their mouths,
the procession reformed and started to
inspect the animal. Sure enough, three
niggers were lifting him in a wagon.
"Thero," said Brown, "I told
you he would go in a wagon.
Don't say I swindled you. Ho will eat
less than any horse you ever owned.
You will save his value in horse feed in
two wtseks. Just try and see if he is not
gontie. Tickle him with a straw. "
The spectators applauded. Robinson
looked like he oitght to go along with
his horse to keep him in countenance.
In conclusion it is whispered on the
strand among capitalists that some of
the notes have already passed into the
hands of innocent holders, and as they
mature protests will be in order.

From tho direction they were taking, it be
