herself as much surprised at the story,
and could hardly credit if.

only last Monday, and she made no
mention of a coming wedding. I have
met Miss I,es in London, an I consider

about 40 years of age, Put, as to her
marrying Mr, Wild. well, he has no
money, and she la almost similarly situ
ated. She has ..bout l,000a year iu
come, and as Mr. Wilde'bat been liv
trig with his mother, and as Lady
Wilde has no wealth, I fail to see how
they will get along, I em particularly
surprised to hear this story, bcosnss I
cannot imagine oi r, wiide marrying
any woman who has not lnonev.
