An Injured Husband 111 California
Shooting the Seducer or his wire
A Mutual Friend Ilastenln B the
Sin FraucUeo Mta, Oct.W,
A dispatch received from Canlstoga
yesterday announced that Harry Lark
yn8,bettcr known ai Major Harry Lark
yns, was shot and almost instantly kill
ed by Edward J. Muybrldge, a photo
grapher of this city, on Saturday night,
about 11 o'clock. Tho cause of tho
murder Is said to bo tlomes'.le troublo,
and of 'this tliero seems to bo no doubt.
Larkyns was an Englishman, about 85
years of age. Ho camo to this city a
year and a halt ago, with Another Etig
llshman. Ho got emiloyroent on tho
Post as reporter, his engagement last
ing some time. Ho was then employ
ed by John Wllson.tho circus man. His
last employment was to make, maps ot
soma mlnes'ln Napa and Sonoma coun
ties, and It was on this business that ho
went to Canlstoga. Muybrldgo Is a
photographer In tho employ of Bradley
& Rulofson. His principal business Is
to take photographs of country scenes,
and ho was, therefore, most of his time
absent from tho city. Mrs. Muybrldge
was at ono tlmo clerk I.i Ackerman's $1
store. They have one child. Mrs. Muy
brldgo Is now In Portland, Oregon.
It Is said that Muybrldge formed ac
quaintance ot Larkyns, and that ho
liked him very much. Ho Invited him
to his house a? a friend, and introduced
him to his wife. Larkyns often visited
Mr. Muybrldgo's house, and for a long
time was always kindly received. But
tho husband left the city In pursuance
of his employment, and wasgono for
sometime. When ho returned ho learn
ed that Larkyn's conduct to his family
during his absenco was not that ot a
friend. Ho cautioned Larkyns never
to visit his houso again or speak to his
wife. But It was of no avail. Tho In
timacy between Mrs. Muybrldge and
Larkyns continued, and was to open
that tho outraged husband sought his
false friend and finding him In the office
of the Evening Post, quarrelled with
him, and struck him. This had not the
desired effect. Larkyns and Mrs. Muy
brldge still met clandestinely, even
openly, In tplte of thu protests of her
Whatever may have been the rela
tions of Larkyns and Mrs. Muybrldgo,
the difficulty seemed to have been blown
over with tho departure of the former
for the Canlstoga, and tlio latter for
Portland. It reraaled for a "mutual
friend" to stir up the passions of tbe
outraged husband and drive him to the
commission of murder. This mutual
friend was a lady, who was employed
as nurso by Mrs. Muybrldgo, and all
the correspondence between Larkyns
and Mrs. ifuybrldgo was turned over
to her for safe keeping.
The mutual friend wanted money,
which she t-ald Muybrldge owned her,
and for this purposo slio paid him a
visit on tho forenoon of taturday last.
She demanded the money, but Muy-
brldge;ellher'rtfused ?to pay or gave
the old lady a guff answer. Thereupon
she pulled a bundle of letters from her
pocket, aud handing them to him said
"Will you pay me now?" The husband
took the letters and read them over
carefully. His breast heaved with In
dignation, his wrath was fired, and ho
determined on revenge. Having learn
ed that Larkyns was lu ttinlstoga, ho
left in tho afternoon for that place. On
his arrive he went to tho hotel whero
Laikyus was, and having found him,
shot and killed him almost Instantly.
Jfuybridge was at once arrested,
iron the San Pranciico Clironicle.
Major Larkyns was troubled with
great anxiety on Mrs. Muybrldge's ac
count. Mrs. Smith relates that in the
Utter part of July he wrote from tho
Geysers saying. "I can neither cat
sleep, nor work, till I know something
more about that poor girl. I'm afraid
I shall have to glvo up my business and
come down and seo whero sho Is and
what has become of her." And again,
shortly afterward, ''If tho poor girl Is
In distressed wrltoaudlet me know, and
I shall go and fetch her down or send
her money l oome."
Some months ago Major Larkyns'
wrote a play for Charlotte Thompson,
which was successfully produced In
New York, and at tho tlmo of his death
he had one prepared for Mrs. Chanfrju,
which that lady had not yet takon oft
his hands. A lady who knew htm pro
fessionally abroad adds tho following
particulars: Jaor Laikyns was con
nected in England with a family oj
wealth and respectability, and boro an
Irreproachable character. Hi; first en
tered business by putting qulto a largo
sura ot money in tho Lyceum Theatre,
a place which stood high In theatrical
circles. His connections with tho drama
so Incurred tho displeasure of his family
that, with tho expcctlon of his sister,
they ceased to receive or recognize him.
His theatrical venture was a failure
financially. After severing his con
nection with the Lyceum ho obtained a
commission In the English army, and
served In India. Ho then volunteered
In tho 'service of Garlbildl, and was
with him in his champaigns. At tho
tho breaking out of tho Franco-Prussian
war, ho Joined the 'Freneh army. Ho
was promoted to the rank ot ilkjor, a
title, which ho retained until his death.
At Metz ho was wounded In tbo thigh,
and after recovering, In the latter part
of 1872, he camo to America.
Tho Truo Way ori.lfc.
Wo all aim after enjoyment of some
kind; and we aim not only after, but
after Its highest state, and to possess It
contluually, we would bo happy always,
aud that In tho highest degree. This
Is the greatest error of our life, standing
first, for It.is not In human naturo to
possess thls.'we are not calculated for
It. Wo can bear a high stato of excite
ment, whether plcasurablo or painful,
only for a short time; tho strain then
will relax, and tho opposite effect will
take place, weariness and a distaste,
greater or less, for what was so relish
ed. When wo are stimulated, reaction
must follow. It Is henco that thosb
long In trouble become emaciated, weak
ened. If tho grief Is severe, death
sometimes puts an end to It. It tho'sys
tern Is weak, the strain will bo too much
for It. So it Is with great excitement of
any kind. Great Joy will take tho ap
petite, tho appetite will affect digestion,
and digestion the system, often Inclu
ding the mental and moral.
Now we cannot bo harpy long at a
tlmo. A fter a time if the excitement
has been very high, there will bo a
drooping down, a lessening of the feel
ing, until there Is a depressed, weary
condition of tho system, a languor and
satiety. The penalty.ls always attach
ed the good neutralized by ils oppo
site. Do we consider this? Very few In
deed do. Wo rather follow our inclna-tions-premlt
impulses to govern us. Wo
aro Telemachus struggling to get to tho
elrens; we have no thought of the real
condition, much less a desire or will to
avoid It. Hence wo go on, ever aim
ing, not only after the happiness, but
its highest enjoyment, and that con
tinued. Was over anything so prepos
Is It possible to amend this? Will It
benefit to do so? Nothing is clearer. It
needs only seeing what tliero Is, and
then practicing to obtain It, and In a
short tlmo the thing will be accomplish
ed. But will there bo more enjoyment
In Its accomplishment, Nearly, yes.
The high strain and tho low condition
consequent may bo avoided, Thus
the lover may loose his fits ot high ela
tion and deep depression, tho two neu
rallzlng each other, leaving the person
the worst for tbo strain. This may bo
avoided, There will be no after effect
ot pale countenance and gloomy and.
suffering aspect. The business man,
Instead ot being merged wholly In tho
one existing topic, elating and depress-
lug him, and under-balancing his mind,
may be freo from all this, and Its rack
ing, hurting Influence, So In all the
departments of life acd society, where
we find this Irregularity, this excoss
and folly, seeking after tho unattlan
ablo stoking because tempting and
not thinking that It cannot be obtain
Aro you then to avoid all that Is flat
tering and exciting? Wo aro to avoid
that which hurts us, however well it
may appoar. We aro to avoid and
this Is tho substance of the whole thing
Ob, then! You aro preaching torn
perancel" Not tho tempcrauco you
mean. In all nature, moderation or
balanco Is the law. You grow your
fruit to excess, and there will bo a hurt;
exerclso excessively and tho result will
bo apparent. Nothing, ludord, can lo
dono to excess but It Is harmful. To bo
happy to excess Is to bo mlserablo there
after. Is It moderate onjoyment then that
wo are to tako up with?
This seemsrather dishcartenlng.but It
Is all In the scorning. Great Joy, as it
Is called, Is ircat excitement. It Is Joy
diluted and Inflated to a great appear
ance; tliero Is moro excitement. In a
short time tho porson becomes wcuy,
sighs, and tries to pursuade himself that
ho still enoys. Woe If tho reaction Is
suddcnl It often Is, and thus wo havo
much of tho despair wo seo In tho world

thereby securing tbo largest sharo ot
