Fivo minutes later, and Richard entered

Twenty Years Chase for a,Husband.

the patriot army in IS M, has been living
in that city, lie had been g tting along

a woman ma le her appearance in the place
and claimed to be his, lawful wife. Her

jnnd had so won the esteem unci confidence
of the chief rabbi of the place, that ho was
frequently entrusted with the administra
tion of the Jewish law in his, tho chief
, rabbi's obsence. Her parents iind nil par
ties assenting, she was married to the
i learned young rabbi. On their aiarriago
' their parontsgave them a mania e portion
of about S100D, on which they lived nbrut
a year nt Kreeiin, wl.en tho young rabbi
jsiuldenly disappeared, and was gone some
I three years before she ascertained his
I whereabouts. Finally she heard of hint a
hantzie. in Prussia, whither she followed,
j found him, nnd returned with him toSe
I rai, in Poland. Here they lived together
another year, during which a child was
j born to them. When the child was come
three months old, they wnt on n visit to
I Ktecna, remained there a few necks, and
j then started back to Serai. Arriving at
, the bonier, the rabbi bad provided him-ell',
'with a passport, but 'had none for her.
'and intim iting to tho ollicer that tho la-
day was none of ' is, he i.is conveyed
across the stream, while she was left be
hind. This was the hist she had seen of
her loving spouse until she met him, ten
days ago in Ottawa.
Hut she was unwilling to give him up
so. Arming herself with funds and the
necessary papers, i-he started in pursuit.
She f und traces of him in various places
throughout F.urope, but was never able to
fix his locality until after three years ; she
learned that he had been at Jerusalem,
had been married to a second wile, bad in
a year left her. nnd thence been wandei
ing over Fnropo, iissuniing the character
of a ".lerusaleniile," begging funds fur the
destitute children of Israel. That in this
way he had accumulated i.'onsidci;.ble mo
ney that a bn thcr of his second wife had
pursied him found him in (iermany, and
got a "writing of divorcement" from him
returned vt ith it to .Jerusalem, an I found
it defective followed him a second time
and found him in London, where ho got
another writing that was in due f rm.
Then nil trace of him disappeared, until
two years ago sho learned that ho had do- I
piisitect j-.oine money wim a iiiiiiucr in
Hanover, with orders to forward it whith
er I e should direct by letter. The bank
er finally got a letter.directing him to for
ward the money to Kalamazo, Michigan.
Thither the followed, and there was infor
med that the money had been forwarded
to Seltzar, in euro of IV. Ashkcnazi, at
Ottawa Illinois. So she came to Ottawa.
ftnl by accident ni -t Dr. Ashkennzi in the
s'reet, whom she at once recognized. The
Docto-made u feeble ttl'ort to deny his
identity butjsoonjoaved, and showed a dij-
position to come to terms,

Sljoo i money to enable her to return to

ling enough to ueccdo to, but, being a
great miser, utterly scouted the latler oro-
position, to evade whi'u, he tried earne.-t-:
ly to persuade hi r to live with him again.
She declines, but commences a proceeding
j for a divo: cn and alimony, and, lor fear
1 "rabbi" may take leave of her again, she
has him locked up.
The doctor is known to have some eight
or ten thousand dollars in gold in his po
session, and could ea-ily discharge I he la
dy's demand ; but he is so miserly that lie
tuny linger a long while in jail before he
will do it. The ladv is not unhandsome,

Got Left. A genuine touch of woman's
nature, ui well r-s human nature, pervades
tho following ;
"A comfortable old coupla jat a seat or
two it. front of us on the rsilroad during
one of tho hottest days of last summer.
The journey was evidently one of the o
vents of their lives, and their curiosity ox
cited tho attention of tho pxsaonscrs. At
a way station, the old gentleman stepped
out to get a drink, or a doughnut, and
hoard tho bell only in timo to rush to the
door of the eating house and soo tho train
move oil' without him. Tho old lady in her
'Cat had been fidgeting, looking out of the
window in her anxiety for his return, and
when she saw his plight, his frantic pos
tures for the train to stop, as it swept far
ther and farther away, sho exclaimed 1
'There, my oldmunhaxgot left! ho has!
there! see, he has! "Wa'U" sho contin
ued, pitting back in her seat again, "I'm
glad on't it's always been 'Mammy,
you'll get left 1' all my life long; and now
he's gono and got left, and I'm glad on't."
Her candid reflection on tho accident,
and tho evident satisfaction sho felt In' thu'
fact that it was the old man, and not her
self thnt was left, was greeted with around
of applause. Xot a few of Uie ladies in the
c:r were delighted that it was the old man
nn.l not the woman who bad made the blun
der, and "gone; n:id got loft."
