Ac a Result of Story io an Atlan
ta Paper His Hand is Sought
A petite miss, over whose mass of i
raven locks not more than twenty <
au m me ru have sped, and in thc depths j
of whose large, lustrous black eyes l
gleamed well-springs of a strange and <
puzzling; fire, tripped up on the ver- <
anda of Col. James T. Roberts' coun- i
try home yesterday about noon and I
announced that she had come to plight I
tho troth of a handsome-dame of At- i
lanta, resident ot Peachtree street, 1
who had seen in an Atlanta Sunday i
paper a large photograph of the fot- i
skin-overcoat clad Andereoniah and i
read an accompanying article setting j
forth that Col. Roberts would bestow ]
a reward of $2,000 upon the individual \
who would find him a suitable wife, j
The would-be match-maker spent ]
several hours in Anderson in a des- /
perate effort to rope the well known |
fox-hunter in, and uttered a deep sigh <
of despair yesterday afternoon when %
the colonel, after taking her to a res- 1
taurant and giving her a good feed, i
placed her in a hack and sent her to- t
ward the railway station, gently ad- v
monlshing her the while to retrace i
her footsteps to Atlanta and remind- t
lng her that he might sometimes be 1
taken for a. fool but be darned if he c
would knowingly be a Bucker. c
The whole trouble, for Colonel i
Roberts considers the 48 matrimonial
offers which he received in a Bingle
mail yeserday morning and his fair j
caller to be troublesome, began with ]
an. article which appeared in a Sun- ?
day Atlanta paper. Col. Roberta was \
in Atlanta last week in the Interest j
of a motion picture of a fox chase j
which was staged here several days .
ago by an Atlanta producing firm. \
During his stay tn the "Gate City of ?j
the South" he was "grape-juiced and \
dined" by several friends. In golpg <
about the city Col. Roberts was garb- ;
cd in his now famous overcoat, mad* j
of the skins of 39 foxes which his pack j
ot a'half-hundred trusty hounds have ,
brought down in the fields of Florida ,
and elsewhere. The greatcoat attract- y
ed the eye of Atlanta people and par
tlcularly the binoculars of an enter- ,
prising newspaper reporter, who ac- j
Companied the colonel on his social
Col. Roberta said that in his mean- ?
dcrlags ai? JUL the city he may have lei
drop some remark-as he often does ,
about Anderson- that he would give '
$10,000 for the right kind of a wira,
and a large reward to the ' one who
would produce a spouse that would
como up to bis own notions.of whst
a companion of this type should be.
Tho reporter, Col. Roberts says, must
have drawn on his imagination, for In
the paper of Sunday morning appear
ed a thrilling story to the effect, that
Col. Roberts would give $2.000 to the
person* who would find him a mate."
L Accompanying the article was a pho

Tho venorable fox-chaser returned
to Anderson Sunday and thought no
more of the incidents ef his Atlanta
trip until yesterday morning, when
this dainty creature tripped up to his
habitat- an:'. Inquired if this was the
man who,had .offered tho reward of
$2.000 to the person who would bring
him a wife to his own choice. At first
tho colonel was a bit dazed and
thought that someone was attempting

The young adventuress was con
siderably frustrated by the swooping
ilown of the two newspaper mea. She
made a great effort to put up a big
bluff, but the pencil pushers were wise
to the game and admonished her to
come clean and band out the dope,
If she wished to escape publicity in
tho Atlanta papers, which, she avow
ed, with looks of distress, would ne'er

the bush, retrenching and other tac
tics of dialect .she turned her talk
into the proper chaque!? and yielded
Lip the info., which the news hounds
sought. She averred that she was not
in applicant for the hand of the colo

latch down on thc two thousand
plunks which she fas^eved the colo
nel was about I'D drop to the one who
'OL'ntl him a wife. Of course, she did
ioi put it in that language. On thc
mntrary. she framed a real cute Ut
ile story- a little doll baby romance
iffair, gilded over with sentimental
ruff stating that She was engaged
?ersclf, and merely wished the colo
?el to go back to Atlanta and marry

the same hint to her that -Priscilla

lome at all with the petite creature,
for she railed her Iuminious, liquid
ryes-as big as beets, round as onions

insisted on the colonel taking tho next
[fain 'back to Atlanta with her. Sne
carried in ber muff a photograph of
the Atlanta matron along the side of

Oh, Yen Letters.
The newspaper men. helped the
colonel read some ot his letters, some
of which were evidently penned by
womeh of education and what might
be termed erstwhile refinement. . As
several of them were written on hotel
stationery, It ' la presumed that the?
were written hy human vampires who
