The neighborhood gossips in a cer tain locality have a new domestic sensation on.wnich the bare been holding consultations and two-cornered sessions for a few days. The general verdict is against the hus band, whose treatment of his voaog wife has aroused the sentiments of those more familiar with the un pleasant life she has been forced to lead. The husband on returning from one of his commercial trips a few evenings ago did not comply with his connubial vows and extend his wife a cheerful greeting such as tends to bless the atmosphere of a happy home. Instead, so 'tis said, he heaped upon her all the abusive epithets which a tongue could give expressipn to with a conclusive de mand for her to leave forever, the heme. The wife, and mother of eight months, obeyed the command, but not until all conciliatory plead ings were exhausted. Heartbroken and with her infant she departed and sought shelter at the home of a friend, while the husband returned to the scenes of his boyhood his mother's domicile. Far from the expectancy of those witnessing a blissful marriage not more than 36 months ago was this unhappy and disastrous termination. A cheerful, entertaining and good looking young ladv, she came h -re on an extended sojourn with family connections. Her winsome disposi tion and bright manners immediately made a friend of an acquaintance, of which she soon had innumerable, t'.ere being several admirers .of the sterner sex. Eventually she became a conspicuous personage in all social doings, and was generally accepted as a favorite among those of her class. The clerk of a mercantile establishment, sought her compan ionship and was favorably consid ered, and in the course of events, became in her imagination the ideal of a life's companion, should cnpid ever dictate the advisability of mat rimony. They were looked upon as an affectionate and fit pair to share each other's jojs and sorrows, and anything but happiness, should tbey wed, was beyond the conception of their friends". A courtship of the usual duration and the happy day was fixed. With its approach rang clearer the wedding Dells, whose beautiful cbimea resounded happily with the blissful anticipations of two fluttering hearts. It came the mar. riage day and these two were linked in the matrimonial bans, amid the well wishes of all and the expressions of admirers that nothing 10 mar the happiness f a prosperous me couia ever nover about them. A lapse of a little over two years, which were apparently spent happily. A child arrives to bless and brighten this home. An entire change takes place in the husband. He substi tutes cheerfulness with obduracv, smiles with frowns, pleasantness with crabbedness, permeating - his househonld surroundings with an air of chilliness, as though he were a veritable icicle. The mother goes along dav by dav with her wifelv duties. He resigns his clerkship with the business house and ac cepts a position as traveling sales man. Another lapse of a few months. The warm weather has no effect in thawing ont hia refrigera- tive way. Une evening be comes home and begins to abuse his. wife. The neighbors are attracted by his resonant vocabulary, wmcn sudden ly breaks forth with a command for wile and babe to vanisb forever from his presence. Her pleadings are se verely repulsed, and her withdrawal quells the excitement of a dramatic scene in domestic life. Curtain. Divorce proceedings will undoubt- ediy follow, lne next aay witnessed the removal of the household effects, and thus presents another broken home. Tksy Walks Horn. A party of Bock Island and Daven port ladies who went basket-picniC' ing at Black Hawk's Tower Thursday afternoon got more exercise than they bargained for. The hours glided by swiftly, as is generally the case on such occasions, while enjoy ing an outing away from the busy strife of citv life. The sun had turned its reflections to other lands. and the festivities continued. But when they concluded to return home. lo! on reaching the station at the foot of the Tower they ' discovered that the last car had gone. A dance was in progress at the Inn, but that would not termin ate until some time in the morning. Walk was the only conceivable rem edy, and walk they did. Carrying their baskets and with painful ex Ereesions, and fearful of what might fall their attempting a midnight excursion tnrougb tne tnick rorrests and by the cemetery, the ladies be gan to meander homeward by way of the street car track. The time-teller was about, to make its second strike when they arrived in town, haggard, dust-covered and almost exhausted. Undoubtedly there were several early morning speeches by disturbed husbands, who had an opportunity to retaliate for the various call downs tbev had been subjected to in the past for keeping late hours. The grave yard was the one spot which sent the chills tnrougb tne ladies at tne tbought 01 having to pass it; as one of them said: "We felt all right after we got by the cemetery , , A FlshUs TmxM' aflataka. The other morning '.thrte railroad men and a druggist, with their fish ing taokles. started across the rail road bridge in hopes of enjoying a few hours angling. Arriving on the island shore they bated their lines and were prepared to catch all the nan in the river, wnen taev beard a loud whistle. Thinking one of their party had a bite, they looked around to ascertain the lucky man, when to their surprise they saw a blue coat on the bank above them. They did not wait to salnte their via. itor. but started off on a tun, the blue coat in hot pursuit. The blue eoat proved to be the best runner. and the consequence was 'the three rai'road men were captured, while the druggist made good his escape. They say the druggist had a 40-mile gait, and hasn't stopped yet. The blue coat arrested the trio for ash ing on government property with out permission, and gave them or ders to run extra" from the slough bridge lo the guard bouse. Arriving at the end of their rnn. the blue coat invited them to enter. They lingered in the guard house till about 1:30. Their captor passed and cast his se vere glimmers on them. One of them became suddenly Instilled with courage, and he asked the guard when their punishment would cease. When informed liberation would be the following- day, they nearly fainted, as their trains left at 2:10 p. m. Thev oleaded with Uncle Saovs officer, explaining the circumstances. until tbey were boarse. tie released them shortly after 2, and with head gears in hand they start on a wild goose chase to catcb their trains which, lucky for them, departed 15 minutes late. The Cook Played Baseball. One of our hostelries recently en gaged the services of a new presid ing genius in the culinary depart ment ot the household. 1 he latter was a stranger, but accompanied her application with a strong talk regarding her qualifications, and was accepted. The bartender and proprietor were making her the subject of a discus sion a few days afterward. - The former was telling hit employer how fortunate he had been in securing such a strict and attentive lady for cook. "The dining room girls tell me." he continued "that she won't even tolerate the friendship of the sterner sex, let alone go out evenings with the boys, like the average of them. She claims to be too much of a Christian goes to church regu larly to carouse -like some of th- hotel girls, and" She does, ehr" interrupted tne proprietor. "Well, I am pleased to bear that,,. but I have my doubts. I believe she has been stringing you people around here with a great big bluff. I'll just go to the kitchen and interview her, and satisfy mysalf as to who she is." The proprietor returned in a little hile laughing. "What did I tell you?" he anked. "Ye, she is very choice fn her companionohip and a good Christian. Why, Iat summt-r she played short-stop in a female base ball club!" Leaf lard at Schroeder's.
