A Little Remark; Made l»y tlie Wo
man Accompanying Him Gave It
All Away, . .

.An incident of the Charity ball given
in Masonic Temple last week, is begin
ning to furnish a topic for quiet talk
among the few who are being trusted
with the story. It seems that about
the time that a certain young gentle
man and lady were about to leave for
heme, they stepped into an ante-room
at the head of the ball room where
the young- lady adjusted her wraps.
She placed a bouquet on one of the
chairs while her escort laid his over
coat down on the chair cover ing the
flowers. After he had assisted her with
her wra.ps, they stepped out and
across the ball room, returning in a
minute or less time. When the gentle
man picked up his coat, the . flowers
were gone. He immediately put-his
hand to his coat pocket, in which was
a wallet containing a number of valu
able papers and a sum of money. It
'too was gone. -
The gentleman happened to know the
two detectives of a local agency, who
•were present in full dress, and hasten
ed over to the door to notify them of

what had occurred. One of them stand
ing near the exit, of the hall, recalled
that just a moment before, a gentleman
passed out to whom his attention had
been called by overhearing the lady re
mark :
"Button your coat or they'll be
seen."
The gentleman was easily recognized
again by his peculiar growth of whis
kers, and when the detective rushed
out and down the stairs he overtook
the couple just as they were leaving
the building.
One word was enough. The flowers
and poeketbook were given to the de
tective and by him to the owners. The
man and woman were allowed to de
part. —
Since then they have left town.

J. "Waller Thompson Agency Se
locts a Xortliwestern Man.
The veteran newspaper man, H. P.
Hall, has arranged with the advertising
agency of J. Walter Thompson & Co.,
New York and Chicago, to represent
them in the Northwest, and, as he
knows every newspaper man in this
section, past and present, the selection
of a representative would seem to a
casual observer as judicious on th 3
part of the agency, as it will no doubt
be agreeable to a man whose life has
been spent in the newspaper business.
The concern is one of recognized
standing, one of The board of directors
being Vice President-elect Garrett A
Hobart.

George R. Topliff and Frederick G. Tonliff,

assigned yesterday to J. D. O'Brien for the
-benefit ol their creditors. Complainants in sev
eral actions which have been pending against
the Topliff firm in the district court for the
past few months have charged that the firm
was insolvent and incapable of meeting its
obligations, and in an applicatioin made by
Jacobson Brothers, of New York, for the ap
pointment of a receiver for the firm, it was
alleged that there had been an illegal trans
fer of a valuable stock. While this action
was recently in pgroress papers of garnish
ment were served by Jaeobson Brothers upon
the German-American bank, as having funds
of the Topliff firm in its possession, and the
assignment to Mr. O'Brien followed.

Who la St. Panl'a Mne Daj •

ii If Anna Eva Fay were disposed to
make public all she has come to know
about St. Paul during her short stay
here, "society ; would be stirred to its
very depths." The "400" would suffer
a terrible shock, and .'a few of them
might move out of the city. But Miss
Fay i isn't disposed to create any such
demonstration. That she possesses all,
the information necessary, were she so
inclined, you would at once realize if
you visited her apartments at the Ryan
hotel and saw the stacks of letters from
all sort 3 of people with which her rooms
are literally deluged. The bare thought
of having to open and read them is ap
palling, not to mention the task of an
swering even 25 per cent of them. But
Miss Fay and her assistant open and
read all of them, and such writers as
comply with the condition requiring
them to enclose an addressed envelope
bearing a two-cent stamp receive an
swers to their questions.
And these questions—their name is
legion. While it is true that the ma
jority of them are inquiries as to the
whereabouts of lost relatives, money
and other property, yet many of them
possess a far greater and deeper mo
tive. Some are tragic in their import,
others "quaint and curious," and still
others highly amusing and eccentric.
When the Globe representative
called upon Miss Fay at the Ryan early
last evening she had just returned from
the ladies' matinee at Conover hall.
The first impression you receive upon
entering Miss Fay's apartments is that
she is the recipient of a large mail.
The floor, tables, chairs and other
articles of furniture are literally buried
beneath an avalanche of letters. With
letters around, about and beneath the
little woman, she is fairly overwhelmed
with them. Thousands of them still un
opened were strewn about, but none
are ever lost. The sealed envelopes
containing the questions that the writ
ers prefer not to ask in public vary in
shape, size and color from the dainty
and stylish stationery of a St. Anthony
hill, society star, who writes such a
fashionable hand, to the commonest
kind of an envelope bearing the most
illiterate scrawl.
"Just look at those letters," ex
claimed Miss Fay, pointing at a single
heap on the floor, that could not have
contained less than 500. "What do
you think is in them? Why, every
thing from murder and suicide to th=^
idlest and most trivial thing you can
imagine. I haven't opened any of them
yet, but I know I sihould find som»
very serious ones and also some very
laughable ones among them. Just to
show you, I'll pick out a few at random
and read them to you. As you can see
they nearly all bear the St. Paul post
mark, and I can assure you from mv
experience that the public would be
vastly surprised if I should divulge
names of some of the writers. Among
them you will find several prominent
personages, not only in society, but in
the business world as well."
While speaking, Miss^Fay opened the
first letter her hand touched. It was
from a reputable business concern in
this city. It read as follows:
"Dear Madame: Kindly tell us when
we will settle up with the cashier of
bank. "How will we save anything out
of it and when will our troubles end?"
The letter was signed in the name of
the firm. "Such a letter means much "
added Miss Fay. "Here's one evidently
from a woman of some culture judging
from the hand writing. Yes, it's from
a young lady on Laurel avenue, and
this is what she writes:
"Can you tell me the characteristics
of the young man I am keeping compa
ny with, and does he care enough for
me to make me a good husband?"
"Now, I should say," continued Miss
Fay, "that this is from a sensible
young woman who is not so wildly in
love with the young man in question
as to marry him first and take the
chances on her future happiness. He
has evidently given her cause to su.«
pect the depth and sincerity of his
love for her."
The next letter Miss Fay picked up
v.-as evidently from a young- woman
in an humbler station in life, though it
was properly and plainly written, bear
ing no traces of illiteracy.. The girl
asked this direct question, fraught with
a world of significance:
"I would like to know if the gentle
man I am going with will marry me
or not."
"Such letters arouse my deepest
sympathy," said Miss Fay, carefully
replacing the letter in its envelope and
laying it one side. "I do not like to
answer them, in cases where I know
that the true answer will bring misery
and despair. Where a girl asks suen
a question out of mere curiosity or be
cause of an innocent love for the young
man, the case is different, quite dif
ferent, I think from this one."
A married woman, whose brother
had- lost a considerable sum of money,
wrote a letter asking whether it would
ever be recovered. Miss Fay read the
letter and as she came to the word
"lost," she exclaimed:
"Lost? He never ''lost' the money,"
wiih the emphasis on "lost."
Judging from several of the letters
that followed, there is considerable
marital infelicity, even in St. Paul
families. Miss Fay says, however, thai
cases of this kind have long since lost
their novelty and interest as they are
as numerous elsewhere as in the Saint
ly city.
The first letter indicating that all
was not serene between husband and
wife in a home on St. Anthony hill,
came from the wife, who writes:
"I want to know i£ a married woman
'everlhad my wedding rin.g .In her pos
session."" % .. • :.--i k ,• - , ~rzamamQaaanL

of ; the .' othera.: Pathetic ito; a;. degree
the letter wa.3 las'* follows: ■ ,

"Either he or the woman he loves,
