Why Eugene Tan Schaick Has Eschewed
t* Society of Late.
Naw' YORK, Oct. 26.—The papers yester
day printed a wedding notice which an
nounced that in 1886 Eugene Van Schaick
had become the husband of Miss Sarah
Eugene Van Schaick comes of an old and
rich Knickerbocker family. Mrs. Van
Schaick does not. That and the lady's
youth made it seem best five years ago to
keep the secret of such an eventful thing as
a marriage. It was a romance, that court
ing ot the Jersey girl by this Knickerbocker
scion. Miss Pyne was the daughter of
James Walter Pyne of Newark, near which
place he owned quite an estate. Miss Pyne
has a pretty face aud a lithe lorm. and
spent a good deal of the time in New York
with relatives while she attended school.
When they met Van Schaick was tweutv
six years old.
There was trouble in his family. The
match was not exactly liked over in Jersev.
The young lady's lather wished her to fin
ish ber education. The young man's father
wanted him to finish his. feo the young
people ostensibly deierred to the objections.
Mr, and Mrs. F. C. Buddon, friends of the
bride, wore let into the secret. The little
company went over to Williamsburg and
called up Rev. Strodach to perform the
ceremonj. The good man made no search
ing inquiries regarding identity. tied
the knot and presumably got his lee and
then, just as in hundreds "ot similar cases,
after registeiing the ceremony, forgot ail
Mr. Van Schaick and his bride parted
company that evening, she going to her
Jersey home and the latter returnine to
scnool. Time rolled on and Mr. Pvne
di«d. Mr. Van Schaick took his father,
Henry Van Schaick, into nis confidence.
Troubles were smoothed over all around,
and Mr. and Mrs. Van Schaick began mar
ried hie by taking apartments at tne Ger
lach some time ago. Little bits ot gos«dp
began to float around. Mr. Van Schaick's
intimates were let into the open secret.
But it was apparen, that a regular public
announcement would straighten matters
out. It was made yesterday. The "God
bless vou, my children" of fiction became
a reality. Feminine opposition in the Van
Schaick household was relaxed and now
all the family unite in saving that it just
pleases them be3rond expression.
Though rich and handsome, Mr. Van
Schaick has had an aversion to society lor
the last lew years. It can now be explained
to mothers of inarriaireble daughters. He
has been a leading official ol the Manhat
tan Athletic club in va'ious capac.ties.
was the first president of thoKmckeibocker
Fencing club. Last year he went to Euiope
as captain and manager ot the Oherry
Diamond Athletic team. He is a member

A Touns: Woman Who Gets More Sleep
Than Nature Requires.
LANS^G. Mich., Oct. 2b —One of the most
remarkable cases that has ever engaged the
attention of physicians in this vicinity
that of Miss May White, twenty-three years

been in a continuous state ot slumber" She
is now lying at the house ot Dr. Brown of
Stockbridge, several miles south ot here,
who has had charge of her tinoe its incep
tion, and had the patient removed to his
own house so that he might give her closer
Miss White, until stricken, was a bright
young woman, and had taught school in a
neighborhood of her home. While attend
ing business school in Jackson in July of
last year she was attacked by neuphritis. An
abecess lormed in her side, and alter intense
suffering she was relieved ot it. Some
time after she was attacked by
epilepsy and suflered terribly from convul
sions, having as many as fVtv in an hour.
These continued untilJune la'st, when the
young woman suddenly dropped into a
slumber so deep that lor days no one was
able to rouse her. Her weiKht has steadily
decreased until at present she weighs but
& ty pound«, having lost over seventy
pounds since the beginning of her slumber.
Dr. Brown is the only person \^ho is able
to rou«e the sleeping crirl, and the opera
tion requires irom twenty minutes to "ne
hour. She is fed three times a day with
light nourishment. She remains awake lor
halt an hour, auiing which sheconveises
intelligently and takes an interest in read
ing newspapers. At the end ot the half
hour she relapses into an unconscious state,
in which she remains until her physician
again awakens her. Dr. Brown thinks that
the girl is gradually gaming more vitality,
and he believes she soon will come out of
the lethargic state.
