Sawyer, a wealthy New Yorker, of 671 Greenwich street, the broad, green lawn was one of the prettiest in Essex County.

She charges that Mr. Sawyer's fox terrier Gyp converted the lawn into a burying ground for bones with disas trous effect to its general appearance. So she has brought suit against the New Yorker in the First District Couit for 8800 damages. "Your family played croquet on the lawn during the dry spell,” she told Mr Sawyer, through her lawyer, A.

Hoppin, Mr. Sawyer’s lawyer, said: “Mr. Sawyer took good care of Mrs. Stubbert’s property. Gyp may have buried a bone here and there on the lawn. And Mr. Sawyer’s family probably played croquet during the summer, but they had a right to. As to the hard wood floors, Mr. Sawyer took good care of them." The case comes up for trial Tuesday.

Gould, though he has as much con tempt for the Prince de Sagan as he had a month ago, may give his con sent to his sister, Mme. Anna Gould, supporting the prince and assuring him an abode and income by marrying him.) The reason for this rumored weak ening, it is said, is to put a stop to Mme. Gould's conduct with De Sagan, j She has been traveling with him since they left New York together. If she, conducts herself in Paris with De j Sagan as she did in Italy, it is feared Casiellane will apply to the French courts for the sole possession of the, children, thus assuring himeelf a good income. Mme. Gould has sent a. cablegram to an intimate friend here, and it is said to hint that Mr. Gould will withdraw his opposition. Mrs. George Gould and her children are in Paris and have visited Mme. I Gould.
