THE JiXD OF A ROMANTIC
TUE RALTIMORE BEAUTY WHO MARRIED
THE BROTHER Of NAPOLEON
Mailumo Jerome Ronnparto died at
her resilience in Baltimore, lid. , on
Sunday, April fith, 1879, in the 94th
year ol ber age,
Madame Bonaparte, notwithstanding
the fact that, for many yoars past, she
baa been almost unheard of, owing to
ber completo retiromont and privacy,
was really one of the most interesting
persons in the generation of which she
was ono of the last survivors. She was
thosistor-in-law of Napoloon the Great,
and the widow of Jerome Bonaparte,
the youngest brother ol Napoleon, and
king of Westphalia by virtue ot a mar
riage with tbe Princess Catharine ot
Wurtcmburg, which he contracted at
tbo command of his brother after mar
riage with Miss Patterson bad been de
clared void by Napoleon's council of
stato. The history of Madame Bona
part'a early years is most romantio and
interesting as tbat of her more ad
vanred life has been peaceful and hon
orable. Jerome Bonaparte, tbe youngest,
weakest and least worthy of Napo
leon's brothers, was born Doccmbor 15,
1784, at Ajaccio, in tbe Island of Cor
sica, and in course of time became an
officer in the French navy, and arriv
ed in 1802, at Now York, in command
of a French frigate. Hero the lame ei
bis brother secured for Jerome Bona
parte a cordial reception in the "first
circles" of the city. I'.urly in the au
tum of 1803 Bonaparte visited Balti
more, whero tbo leading citizens con
tended for the boRor of entertaining
the distinguished young stranger.
Hero, at tbe borne ol Samuel Chans,
one of the signers of the Declaration
of Independence, he was introduced to
Miss Kliiaboth Patterson who, though
not yet eighteen years old, was one of
the acknowledged bellos ot tbo city ol
Baltimore. To her great beauty were
added a sprightly wit, fascinating man
ners and many brilliant accomplish
ments. An ardent attachment sprang
up between the two young persons,
and notwithstanding the warning of
frionus and the remonstrance ot nor
father, Miss Patterson became affianc
ed to the young Frenchman, declaring
that she "would rather be tho wife of
Jerome Bonaparte for an hour than
tho wile of any other man for life."
Her father was at lust induced to give
his consent, and a license for the mar
riago was issued from tho Baltimore
county court house on the 29lh of Oo
tober, 1803. The Patterson family
was one of the best among the aris
tocratio families of Maryland. Mr.
William Patterson, the father of the
intended bride, was ono of tbe mer
chant princes of Baltimore, and he
stood shoulder to shoulder with Robert
Morris and other patriots, witb open
purso, bearing tho financial weight of
the itevolulion and tbe subsequent
dark days of the republic. Ho enjoyod
tho warm friendship of Washington,
Lafayette and Carroll, and eould claim
companionship with Hmallwood, Gist,
Howard, Smith and Williams.
On Christmas ovc, Dccombor 24,
1803, tbe marriage of Jerome Bona
parte and Miss Patterson took place,
and it waa advertised in the Baltimore
Federal Gazette of Tuesday, the 27th
day of that month, as follows :
"Married on Saturday evening last,
by the lieverend Bishop Carroll, Mr.
Jeromo Bonaparto, youngest brothor
of the first consul of the French ropub
lie, to Miss Klir.abelb Patterson, eldest
daughter of William Patterson, oeq.,
of this City."
The marriage was porformed by tbe
Right Rovorond John Carroll, bishop
of Baltimore, (brother of Charles Car
rol, of Carrollton, signer of the Decla
ration of Independence,) and after
wards prima to of the Roman Cathollo
church in the United States. The
marriage contract, considered of much
Importance, was drawn op by Alexan
der J. Dallas, (Fatbor of George M.
Dallas, of Philadelphia,) subsequently
Secretary of tho Treasury, and waa
witnessed by the Mayor and other
(imminent citisensoi Baltimore. Short
y after tho marriage Jeromo and bis
wife made an extendM tour ot tho
Northern and Eastern States, and in
Philadelphia, New York, Albany, Bos
ton and other cities they were receiv
ed witb the distinction duo to the
brother of the Great Napoloon, then in
tbe tcnith of his fame. Napoleon, when
he heard of the marriage, waa sadly
displeased and refused positively to ac
knowledge it, and on April 20, 1801,
M. lucres, French minister of Marine
at Paris, wrote to M. Pichon, French
consul general at New York, stating
that the orders of the first consul rela
tive to his brother Jerome were "to
oome bank to France by tbt Brit Kreaoh
frigate that was mnrnlng thither;
and tbo elocution of this order, on
which tbe first consul iusista in tho
most positive manner, can alone regain
him bis affection. But what tbe first
consul has prescribed to mo, above
everything, is toorderyon to prohibit all
captains of Fronob vessels from receiv
ing on board the young porson to
whom the citizen Joromo has connoo
tod himsolf, it being his intention that
she shall by no means oome into
trance, and tin will tbat should she
arrive she be not suffered to land, but
be sent back immediately to tbe Uni-
M. Dacres, In a personal lettor writ
ten about the same time to Jerome
Bonaparte, says to him that the first
consul had used tbe following language :
"I will receive Jeromo, if, leaving in
America the young porson in question,
be shall come hither to associate him
solf to my fortune. Should be bring
bur along with him, she shall not put
a loot on the territory ol r ranee.
Jerome Bonapart was badly lrighton
ed. Ho hesitated to return to France,
fearing to meet Napoloon in bis anger ;
he delayed his departure from Amor-
ica week after week and month after
month, vainly hoping that time would
softon his brother's heart At last, on
the morning of March 11, 1805, Jeromo
and his wife embarked at Baltimore in
the ship Kiin, for Lisbon. In tho
meantime thore had been published in
tbe Paris Moniteur ot March 5, 1805,
the following official order :
"From and after the 11th of tho
present month all the civil ofiloerj of
tbe empire aro forbidden to Buffer tbe
transcription on their registers of tbe
ocrtiticato ot the pretended marriage,

couple on board, arrived at Lisbon.
lore they nl once had a proof ot JNapo
Icon's despotic powor. A French guard
was placed around their vessel, and
Madame Jerome was not allowed t)
land. A messenger from Napoleon
waited upon ber and asked her what
he could do for Miss Patterson. Hot
reply was, "Tell your mastor that
.Vac (nine Bonaparte is ambitious and
demands her rights as a. member of
the Imperial family."
soon alter arriving at laisbon Jerome
hastened to X'aris, hoping by a person
al interview to win Napoleon over to
a recognition of the marriage. Napo
leon, However, roiused to see him, and
in reply to a lottor ho wrote, "Your
marnage is null, both in a religious
and legal point of view. I wilf nover
acknowledge it Write to Miss Pat
terson to return to tbe United States,
and tell her it is not possible to give
things another turn. On condition of
her going to Araorica I will allow her
a pension during life of sixty thousand
francs per year, provided she doos not
tako tbe name of my family, to which
she has no right, her mairiage having
no existence. j
In the meantime Madame Bonaparte
finding that she would not be allowed
to land at Lisbon, sailed for Amster
dam, arriving on May 1. Napoleon,
who was now almost the absolute mas
ter of the continent ot Europe, in anti
cipation of her arrival in Holland, had
ordered Hcnimmolpenmck, tbe grand
pensionary ot the Batavian ltopublic,
to provont "Madame Bonaparto or any
person assuming that name" from land
ing in any port of that country. In
compliance with this command, when
Erin arrived in the Toxol Roads, with
Madame Bonaparto on board, the vessel
was ordered off immediately, and all
communication with her prevented.
She accordingly sailed tor England and
arrived at Dover May l'J, 1UU.
On July 7 lb, 1805, Madame Uona-
parte'a first and only child was born at
Cambervell, near London, and was
named Jeromo Napoleon Bonaparto.
Tw months after the young mother
and her child embarked for the United
States, and arrived at Baltimore after
a prosperous voyage ol two weeks.
In tho meantime, Napoleon bad de
termined that bis brother should mar
ry among the princesses ol Europe,
and all efforts to iuduce him to rocog
nizo the wifo of Jerome were in vain.
To tho honor of Pope Pius VII. it
should be stated tbat he firmly resisted
Napoleon's attompts to induco him to
declare void tbo marnago of Jeromo
BOnaparte and Miss raltcrson. I tie
marriage was annulled by Napoleon's
council of stato, but the Popo always
refused to sanction the divorce, and in
the eyos of the Catholio church, ol
which the)' were both membors,
the marriage nover was annulled.
Jerome was weak and fickle, however,
and was at last forced to yield to the
will ot bis powerful brother and marry
the Princess Fredorioa Catharine ot
Wurtomburg. Upon sovoral oocasions
Madame Bonaparto and ber descend
ants have endeavored to have their
legitimacy established by the French
courts, but tbe appeals, owing to the
French Bonaparte innuonco, were ae-

and her daughter. Tbe blunt intima
tion of annual receipts: then "my
character is known to the public, so
you may readily ascertain what it is,"
thon the declaration, "and no time for

A woman ot mean mteiiiirenco, one
might Imagine, would seldom be chosen
by men ol great intellect as a lifelong
companion, lot such mesalliances
seem to be the most fascinating lor onr
greatost geniusos. Tbe wifo of Dr.
Johnson is described as a vulgar wo
man. She was filly years of age wben
tbe Doctor (who was only twenty-sev
en) married her, and according to (Jar
rick she was very lat with swelled
cheeks of florid red, produced by thick
painting, and increased by the liberal
ubo ot cordials. She was flaring and
fantastio in her drees, and effected both
in speech and general behavior, it
mutt be admitted, however, that John
son himsolf was not altogether a "braw
wooer, "llo was then. Miss l urter
(tbe lady's daaghtor) tolls ns, "lean
and lank, so that his immense struc
ture of bonos was hideously striking
to the eve, and ho often hadsoomingly
convulsive starts and odd gesticula
tions, wbicb lnlendod to excite at
once surprise and ridicule Hut as
Johnson said to Beauclore, with much
gravity, "Sir, it was a love marriage
on both sides.'1 It cortainly was so on
tho Doctor's part, and his affection and
esteem for "Totsy" remained as strong
up to the day of hor death as it was on
that of marriago.
But 11 Johnson, with bis ruggod ex
terior could scarcely hope for a grent
prize in the lottery, no aucb remark
can bo made of tbe oonntry, handsome,
intellectual Uoelhe. . 1 bis great man,
an intimate friend of bis Prince, and
the idol of tbo Weimar Court, was cap
tivated by a girl in humblo lifo, whose
father was ft drunkard, and who her
self mado artificial flowers for a liveli
hood. So sensible was tbe girl of tbo
mesalliance that she hcrscll refused
Goeth's offer of marriago. The mar
riago did take place, bowover, but not
till the lapse of yoars had stolon away
all bor charms, and the family com
plaint drunkenness had seized upon
her. Still Goethe's affection remained
and tbe great poet worked patiently,
it sorrowlully, by tne side oi a loonso
and drunken wife.
Such another brido did Rousseau
choose, and be himself gives the follow
ing account of ber abilities : "1 wish
ed from the first to form her mind,
but my toil waln vain. I do net
blnsn to avow that she bas never been
able in rend ; though she writes fairly.
When I wont to. live in tbe Itue doe
Petlits Champs, thore was a clock op

to teach ber to distinguish the hours
tor more than a month. She does unt
quite know thorn now (after' twenty
voars). She bas novor been able to
follow tbo order of tbo twelve months of
the yoar, and knowa not how to do the
simplest sum. notwithstanding an tno
trouble I have taken to teach her. She
does not know how to count money,
and baa no idea what coin to give or
now muob onanga to gei oaca in anj

is often the opposite of what she wish
es to say. At one time I mado a die
t onarr or her nnra.es lor tne amuse
ment of Madame de Luxemburg; and
hor Qm pro gno have become celebra

would think that, with such a catalogue
of defects, the husband could scarcely
esteem the wife; what follows iufu-
oiently enlighten! on this point
"But the person, as shallow, so stupid

oame upon the- scene and broke the

It ceitulnly appears trom tho evt-
denco which wo possess on tbe subject
ol sucb.marnages, that ono of two con
ditions is necessary in order to secure
abiding domestio comfort The ludy
must be unusually simple or stupid, or
she must be unusually intelligent and
wiso. The very habits of abstraction
aud self study of a man of genius led
him frequently and somotiincs for long
away from all communion with his
family. Thus it is neoessaiy, in order
to calmly suffer such neglect, to have
an intonse sympathy in too work and
witb the genius which demands it ;
such sympathy as we find, for exam
ple, the wife of Niebubr giving evi
dence ot on hor deathbed. Niebubr
had never spoken to bor of her ap
proaching death, much as bo longed to
receive her parting wishes, because the
physicians forbado all oxcitemont.
Once only a few days before her death,
as he waa holding her in bis arms, ho
asked hor if thore was no pleasure he
could give ber, nothing be could do for
her sake. She replied with a look of
unutterable love: "You will finish
your history vhotber 1 livo or die."
1 hat was ber only desire.
Or, as we have said, lulling such no
bility of mind, it would appear that
tbe noxt best bone of bappinoss for the
genius is to be found in tho opposite
extreme that is, perfect humanity of
simplicity, or in the downright stupidi
ty ol bis wile. An example ot this
latter success, more particular and
striking than thoso we have given is
to be found in tho life of one of tbe
greatest of Gernrttn authors. Ho was
subject to fits of tbo fiercest passion, in
which be denounced bis wile (a simple
creature) in torrents of tho most tragi
cal and scathing language. Any wo
man ot tlnor sensibility or bettor edu
cation must have trembled with terror
Aider such paroxysms of rage ; but
this lady listened with calm admira
tion ; she did not understand u syllable
ot the speech ; but the unhesitating
now ot bigb-sounding words and tbe
impressive gestures captivated the
mind ot the simple woman, and tbe
torrents of abuse which should have
overwhelmed hor with griof only drew
trom per some ingenuous exprvssion ol
sincere admiration. She was always
under tbe Impression tbat at these mo
ments ber husband was but rehearsing
to her parts of the play bo bad just
written ; and she was no .doubt flat
tered too in her little way with the
role ot critio apparently assigned bor.
Obviously, passion which bad so en
tirely missed its mark could not be con
tinued with any reasonable hope of
success. Bosides, tbo failure was not
more signal than comical, and it never
tailed to restore tbo good humor ol the
choleric author. '
Now, if we turn to instances in wbieh
men of groat genius have marriod wo
men who have boon neither distinguish
ed for sense nor tho want of it whose
mortal caliber has boon of a mediocre
kind we cannot but be struck with
tbo frequont unbnppincss which has
followed. Such ladies are not foolish
as tbe term is usually understood ;
tboy perform tbo duties which they
imagine belonged to their station, and
they expect tho privileges klso which
Jiorlain to it Thus they make cxool
ont partners for our business men,
whose duties and whose pleasures they
understand and generally share. ; But
if such a lady thinks ot uniting herself
to a man of great genius, let her reflect
upon the fato of her sisters who have
mado that experiment. Take first the
exporiencea of Drydon, our great En
glish poet, and of uia wife, Lady Eliza
beth. 1 he lady, though bolonging to
the aristocracy, and therefore presum
ably well educated, had no sympathy
lib tbo gonitis ot hor husband a gen
ius that required his retirement so fre
quently from tho family circle; she
was, moreovor, a woman ot violent
temper and of but moderate intelli
gence. Drydon bad sunered much
from that temper ; and "bis invoctivos,"
says Jl alone, "against the married state
were Irequent and bitter, and wore con
tinued to tho latest period of his life."
And, as Sir Walter Scott gently re
marks: "His excursions to the coun
try seem to have been frequent ; per
haps the more so as Lady Elizabeth
always remained in town.
Milton's nnfortunato matiimonlal
engagements are well known to all ;
and his "Treaties on Divorce," winch
his domestic misfortune stung him into
writing, bas been widely perused by
all classes. But in this instance we
can feel less sympathy for the austere
Milton than lor tbat girl ot seventeen,
who was brought up in a borne where
there waeplonty of company, and mer
riment, and dancing, and who, when
she came to live with tho author ol
"Paradise Lost," found It so solitary.

Abraham's Jewel. Forney's Prog
ress, in attempting to show up tbe wis

piece, wbicb tells tbo value in wbicb
pearls were held in tho early ages, on
ly one object in nature being thought
to be placed above them : "On ap
proaching Egypt Abraham locked
Surah in a cheat that nono might be
hold ber dangerous beauty. But when
he was come to tbe place of paying
customs tbe collector said, 'Pay us the
custom;' and he said, ' 1 will, pay the
custom.' They said to him, 'Thou ear
nest clothes ;' and he said, 'I will pay
for clothos.' They said to bim, 'Thou
earnest gold ;' and be answered, 'I will
pay for my gold.' On this thoy fur
thor said to bim, 'Surely, it must be
the finest silk ; ' ho replied, '1 will pay
the custom for tho finest silk.' Then
said thoy, 'Surely, it must bo pearls
tbat tbou takest with thee;' and he
only answered, 'I will pay for pearls.'
Seeing that thoy could name nothing
of value for which the patriarch was
not willing to pay custom, tbey said,
It cannot be but open thou the box,
and let ns see what is within.' So thoy
opened the box, and 'tbo whole land ol
hgypt was illumined by the lustre of
Sarah's beauty far exceeding even
that ot pearls.
Church Tramps. This is the way
the Erio Gazette goes for a certain
class of roughs, styled "church tramps" :
"Strange as it may soem, right here in
Erie there are a dozon or liftecn indi
viduals known as Jack and Jim and
Ed and Dan and Tom and DK-k and
Jerry, who aro so ill-bred as to infest
tbe different churches every Sunday
evening and go through a sort of pro
ceeding very annoying to respectable
people. They stand in the hall until
tbe minister begins to preach and the
ushers get well asleep, then tboy file
in, one or two at a time, until tho back
seats are full. They whisper, and gig
gle, and perform feats that require no
brains. After preaching an excellent
sermon last Sunday evening, Dr.
Adams came down on this class oi
nuisances in language easily under
stood. He styled them ' church
tramps,' wbo go from one church to
another, having neither pride for thetn
sclvos nor respect for others. He liked
to have them come to church, but to
be guilty of improper conduct in the
house of God was tho worst possible
offense against deconcy."

ntUXJOlf Or SDVCATORS T LVTUKBS-
One of the most ploasant and profit
able educational meetings we ever at
tended was beld in tbe M. E. Church
at Lutborsburg, on Saturday, the Dth
day oi April.
well prepared programmes calling
for a teachers reunion, were circulated
about two weeks prior to the time, in
wbicb all ex-teachers, ex-directors and
citizens generally, were invited to take
part. Ibe result or tbls combination
was moat gratifying. Aged men who
were acquainted with the early histo
ry of education, contributed pleasant
reminiscences of tbo days of "old fogy
ism to a dolighted audience, while the
modern "mastor," with a polish and
grace characteristic of the model teach
er, contrasted tbe work of tbe present
with tho memones ot tbe post, show
ing by tbe picture the future glory
and renown of our "peoples' callings."
Ibe meeting was organized in the
afternoon by electing Dr. W. A. Means,
an ex-director, President, who very
ably presided at the sessions. He was
surrounded by Dr. It V. Spackman,
Daniel Uoodlander, Jlnjor .Luther, Dr.
A. T. Schryver and R. H. Kirk, who
occupied the second place in the gift of
members vice I'rosidonte. w, b. .Lu
ther served as Secretary. A choir,
composed of J. Hamilton, L. E. Weber,
Laura Goodlander, Ella Moore, and
Mrs. Spencer, did some excellent sing
ing during the different sessions.
Altor opening tbe regular exorcises,
Charles Wilson read an able paper up
on "Tbo Ideal Teacher," describing in
plain and comprehensive languago, his
idea of tbe one wbo assumes tbe high
calling ot training the youth. He was
followed by Mr. J. Hamilton, an ex
director, who read a paper on "The
demand of tbe times on Teachers."
Tbe paper was teeming with goldon
truths, and defined very clearly the re
lation teachers sustain to all things
tbat have for their objoct, refinement,
culture, and moral training.
Ibe .Ethical in leaching, was tho
titlo of a paper read by C. M. Raffens

lives and tho influence of such upon
modern civilization. Tho paper was
Dr. It. V. Spackman read a piactl-
cal paper upon "Teachers' Conduct," in
bicb tbo conduct and deportment of
the careless and loathsome teacher was
soverely censured and a strong appeal
made for correct habits, and an exem
plary life on the part of all who have
named tbe name ot a teacher.
E. G. Hays followed with a paper
on "What should the Teacher Head."
The habit of pondering over volumes
of light litorature, dime novels, and
notion, were absolutely denounced,
while he insisted upon teacher read
ing moreofthecurront literature of tbo
day, especially educational literature.
Y . a. Luther read a historical sketch
of school work in Brady township.
Among other thing giving the names
of all who were firm supporter of the
systora, and the namos of all who bad
served as director from the adoption
ot tbd system, also tbe names ol all
who had taught in the township one
hundred and twenty five in number.
1 1. a. W eber followed with a practi
cal and imprcssivo lecture upon "The
ond and aim ot the leacbor, alter
which, Rev John Roams, an aged citi
zen, spoko at some length of tho "tips
and downs" of school fifty years ago.
He portrayed tbo rude unpolished
methods of the pioneer teacher to the
astonishment of tho classical gents ol
tbe present, and gavo vivid illustra
tions of the dnngerous examples teach
ers set their pupils.
Dr. A. 1. Schryver, tbo first Conntr
Superintendent of Clearfield county,
contributed somo pleasant thoughts on
the rapid progress that had boen made,
and related a few anecdotes of tho od
dities of school life many years ago.
Ibe choir lollowed with an appro
priate selection, entitlod, "Fifty a ears
Ago, altor which M. L. JUcOuown re
sponded to a call trom the President,
and spoke briefly of tbo danger of
toachors attempting to follow the an
tiquated forma of our venerable fa
thers, thus losing sight of tho great
lessons of human progress. He also
assured tho gray. headed standard bear
er tbat in many thing we cherished
their example and honored their pre
cepts. The meeting thou adjourned
until half past seven o'clock.
. EVININO SESSION.
Tbe house was crowded to its ut
most capacity at tbe opening of the
evening session. Itev. m. it. uurch-
held ottered prayer and the 1'residont
appointed certain committee. The
choir rendered somo choice music.
On tho taking up of the regular even
ing programme, Itev. llurclitleld was
introdnced, and delivered an able lec
ture on tho "Responsibilities ol tbe
1 encber." llis lecture was somewhat
different from the ordinary educational
lectures teeming with boaiitilul word
picture and illustrations tbat wore
sparkling and vivid throughout, mak
ing it both entertaining and instructive.
M. li. Mowuown followed with an
address upon "A Few Characteristic
of Pennsylvania Schools" He went
back to tho time of Wm. I enn, and
claimed that in bis charter could be
found the gorm of onr present system
ot instruction, drawing many illustra
tions from history, and showing the
premium that great men of all age
placed upon true education. He clos
ed with an appeal to those who named
the name of teacher, ineistiiigon greater
diligenoe, loyal to duty, and to exhibit
to the world an exemplary lite.
Cttpt. L. 11. Carlisle spoke bncfly
upon the dignity of the teacher' work,
and the success ot the educational re

WJ1AT GIRLS GET IN IOVS
Girls keep on falling in love with
some thing or another with a man at
tached to ik It is not a new thing to
love. There ha been more or tea or
that going on in tho world for several
thousand rears, but the advancing oir-
iliaation of tba age has brought along
witb it many modern improvements,
of which love get it share. Probably
a young man is just as nice a being to
fall in love with now and there isn't
any doubt that a young woman is a
groat deal nicer than wa tb can
twenty or thirty centuries ago, but a
girl of this day, with all her sweetness,
is porvcrse and declines to follow after
tbe fashion oi her great-grandmothers
away back in the ages. She may have
a strange idea that girl then fell In
love witb a man by tba moat direct
route because there wa nothing else
to fall in love witb, because girls then
didn't wear frixie and have plume
and paper flower in their bat and a
hundred other things to fill their mind
and hearts, which keep the girls of our
time too busy for anything. But our
girls must not be misunderstood. Tbey
are always thinking about a man, al
ways, only tboy don t tall in love with
him if the development of nearly
every day go for anything. Tbey are
forever trifling witb themsolves, and
they go desperately and hopelessly in
love, somotiincs with one thing and
sometimes witb another, but not often
with a man. Occasionally the tender
passion is aroused by a buttonhole bou
quet, tbe sweetest thing you ever saw;
frequently it ia a perfectly lovely mous
tache, black it must always be black
tbat kills ; tomotime a many-colored
necktie, or a seal ring, or a pair of
ologant boots, or a diamond pin, or al
most anything wbicb would naturally
be classed with these glittering attrac
tions to swindle a young woman's af
fections. Of couse there is always
a man attached, and that may natural
ly bo accounted ot some consequence,
but it is too rarely considered nntil it's
There could hardly be a m ore forci
ble illustration of this eccentric course
of true love than wa given in tbe case
of a Massachusetts young woman, tbe
facts in which have but recently com
to light. This young woman bad fallen
in love with something, possibly a gold
beaded cane or a diamond pin ; at all
events, she was enough in love to get
married, and in a few day ah wa
overcome with grief to find that ab
aotually had a husband, and scandal,
ously enough be waa a man with thick
lips. It was an unfortunate) discovery,
and tbe young wife was o broken
down and made wretched by it that
she insisted upon going back to her
mamma as well as getting spa divorce
case. How this deluded young thing
ever found out that her husband had
thick lips may be one of the strange
thing of the age, but it is not at all sin
gular that she shouldn't have found it
out before the marriago. ,If he had
not in a moment of absent-mindedness
laid by his gold-headed cane or remov
ed hi dauTing pin, she might have
gone on loving indefinitely, and he
wouldn't have known the difference j
but just as soon as she detected tbe
man she saw at once how cruelly she
had been deceived by ber own fitful
imagination. It wasn't the man she
loved, although she may sometimes
have supposed It waa. it would be
just liko the young woman of this very
kind to say tbat this story is ridicu
lous ; and it is, the mors so because it
is trno. Girls are doing just such
things now every day, and thore is no
way, apparently, in which it can be
avoided, unless we can recover some of
the lost and old-fashioned ideas of love.
Undor the present system there seems
to be absolutely no way in which a
irl can find out whether a young man
aa thick lips or a crooked finger or
red bair till be put aside some of tbe
lascinating ornament witb which a
girl falls in love, and he nover doe
this before marnage. a. may even
have an ugly red nose lurking about
his countenance, but a young woman
in love with his necktie or his mous
tache would novor be able to detect it.
Tbe lact clearly is that love is too
blind tor mortal use. lie doesn t see
as woll now by gaslight a he nsed to
years aod years ago in the unsteady
aad hideous glare or the tallow candle,
and there is no eye-opener tbat seem
to reach his case to serve aa a check
upon bis headlong and too often disas
trous career. A moustache is just the
same ovor the front gate in tb dark
aa in the brightness of an electric light
it tbe girl is in love with It, and It tin t
worth while for any but those who
may be interested in the divorce busi
ness to bother much about it, Pnila.
Luck, How frequently people ara
heard to complain ot their bad luck.
They fancy a frowning Providence
thwart every effort of their life; and
plan as they may they fail of oc.
But if these person will stady thaia
selves, closely exsmlne their habit'
and methods, they will discover what
they term their bad luck ia attributa
ble to themselves and not loan ankind
Providence. The slothful ar peculiar
