YOUNG ADAM AND EVE, BOTH 17, HIDE FOR MANY
HAPPY WEEKS IN A ROMANTIC MOUNTAIN CAVE
Then Jack Frost Drives 'Era
Back to Civilization, But
Fails to Chill Their Love
—Elopers Forgiven and
Wedded in 1910 Fashion.
NEWARK, N. J., Dec. 12 —Here is
a story about a youthful 1910 Adam
and his consort Eve.
Adam is 17 years old, and so is
Eve. and their real names were La
Vere Taiiman and Beatrice San
ders. Now Eve Is Mis. Tallman.
They ran away from school and
work and Went off into the Catskill
mountains, right up among the
great big bears and mountain lions
.■nd things, and there they lived in
a cave for weeks and weeks.
it was just the finest cave Imag
inable, too. A great big, regular
robbers' cave. Why, Captain Kidd
himself would have pounced upon it
in glee as a bully hiding place from
policemen, and might have hid a
million dollars In bullion and dia
monds In the big black hole that
led off to —no one knows where —
from the southeast corner.
And here in this cave the nature
children lived and played. During
the day La Vere hunted and caught
fish and bartered with neighboring
farmers for eggs and milk and
sugar and other provisions, but
carefully concealed his identity and
BSf hiding place and his nature
wife.
•'Finer than Paradise!'' said
Beatrice. For in the soft, romantic
days of September and October
they sat alone beneath the stars
and gazed into each other's eyes
and loved each other and forgot
the world. They were very, very
happy—also, very, very young.
But one crisp night there came
a frost. They hadn't counted on
that, nor on the rain which came |
down in torrents and got into the j
cozy little cave and messed up;
things and made them both feel
quite miserable. But old Jack
Frost did not nip their love.
However, they began to suspect
that tuey couldn't live in a cave all j
winter. La Vere went down to the j
village of Yonkers and scouted,
around. He got a job at $4 a week
driving a delivery wagon for a
butcher. He rented a little house,
sold his shotgun and fishing tackle
and went back after Meatrice. But
La Vere didn't know the streets
