disapproved of the "proposed matth,
and to overcome this obstacle, the girl
slipped from the huse at 2 o'clock
Christmas morning and met her lover
a few blocks away.
Yesterday the brother secured a war

gives her opportunity to revel In the

The lesson that the dmma teaches is
that all bad women are nut contlnuous-
and persistently bad. Mercy Mer-
Ick was a nurse In. a French war hos

daughter of an English oflleer, recent

father's relatives In England for pro-

olruck on the head by a piece of shell
and according to Che French surgeon,
was killed. Mercy Mert'lck 'possessed
herself of the girl's clothes and papers
and as a means of effectually dentroy-
ng her past, palmed herself off as the
original Miss Rosebwry on that lady's
aunt, Lady Janet Hoy.
A German surgeon revived Miss Rose-
berry, who proceeded to dispute the
right of Mercy Merrick 'to the name .f
Roseberry. The ex-fallen woman had
herself firmly intrenched in the affec

DEATH OF JUDGE SEELY 1
Expired at His Home in Honesdale
After an Illness of Several Months.
HONORABLE CAREER AT AN END
For Twelve Years Deceased Served with
Distinction as Resident Judgoof the
Wayne-Pike Judicial DIstrlct-I'u-ncral
Will Take Placo l'rlday.
Ex-Judge Henry M. Seely died at his
home ;in Honesdale Wednesday night of
Bright' s disease, from which he had
suffered for some 'time. Mr. Seely was
a member of the Lackawanna county
bar and the Bar association will meet
a.t 11 o'clock 'this morning In the law
library of the court house to take action
on his death.
Henry M. Seely 'Was born In Seely
vllle, a suburb of Honesdale, on Sept.
18, 1835. His parents were Colonel
Richard L. and Maria, Seely. He was
prepared for college dn the schools at
Honesdale and then entered Yale, from
which college ho was graduated In 1857
Ex-Justice Alfred Hand, of this city,
who was from boyhood one of Judge
Seely's closest fi'lends, was a member
of the same-class. Other distinguished
members of it were Professor Mnscs
Tyler, of Cornell university, and Pro
fessor Illake, of Drown university.
For a time young Seely read law at
Honesdale under the direction of F. M.
Crane, but in 1S58 he entered the Albany
Law school, going from that institu
tion to New York city, where he com
pleted his studies.
Admitted to the liar.
In May 18f.9, he was admitted to prac
tlce in New York and at once entered
upon the duties of his profession. In
September of ithe fume year he paid a
visit to Honesdale and was admitted to
practice In the Wayne county courts,
but returned ito New York and con
tlnued his practice 'there until the death
of his father several years later. Col
onel Hei ly was one of the most respect
ed residents of Wayne county, and for
a number of years was president of the
On his demise his son settled per
manently In Honesdale and entered
earnestly on the practice of his profes
sion. He forged quickly to the front
and wait soon looked upon as the leader
of the Wayne bar. In 1882 Charles P,
Waller, preslde-nt Judge of the Twenty
second Judicial district, which includes
Wayne and I'lke counties, died, and
Mr. Seely was at once pointed to as the
most worthy person to succeed him.
Ha was appointed by Governor Hoyt to
serve until January, 1884.
In 1883 the Republicans of the Judi
cial district tendered the nomination
for Judge to Mr. Seely by unanimous
consent, and Oeorge S. Purdy was
named by the Democrats ,of Wayne
as their candidate. Pike county Dem
ocrats refused to endorse the nomina
tion of 'Mr. Purdy, and named D. M.
l.lcctcd to the Office of Judge.
The result was that in the election
which followed the divided Democrats
were defeated, Judge Seely being elect
ed by a handsome plurality. lie served
until Jan. 1, 18H4, when his term ex
pired. In the fall of 1893 he was nomln
ated for re-c-lectlon by the Republicans
and Mr. Purdy was nominated by the
Democrats of the entire district, the
honor going to him with practically the
same unanimity displayed by the Re
publicans in selecting Judge Seely as
their standard bearer.
The lulter held a conference with his
friends and on their advice decided not
to again make a canvass for the high
olilce he had for almost twelve years
filled so acceptably and his old oppo
nent was elected without opposition
Judge Purdy, who is holding court In
this city this week, went on the bench
last January. His relations with Judge
Seely were always of a most friendly
character. He recognized in the man
who defeated him, a thorough gentle
man of great ability, nobleness of char
acter, and singleness of purpose.
After retiring from tho bench Judge
Seely came to this city and opened a
law fllce with the intention of ulti
mately making this city 'his hme.
Stricken by tho Disease.
In September, 1893, Judge Seely's 'Phy
sicians became alarmed at indications
thait Blight's diease had obtained a
hold on his system and after coming to
this city the disease seemed to progress,
Last May he went to Philadelphia to
consult a specialist, from whom he
learned that his case was a serious one,
He had Intended embarking In the prac
tlce of law In this county at the May
term of court, having several cases on
the list. On the advice of hla physician
he decided not to go Into count, but In
stead went to his home In Honesdale,
When he left this city he put his af
fairs Jn charge of ex-Justice Hand,
During the Bummer Judge Seeley epent
most of his time at Upper Woods club
house, but 'hia condition continued to
grow worse until Saturday when It be
came evident 'that his death was only a
matter of a few days at most.
When a young man Judge Seely mar
ried Miss Kate Tracey, of Honesdale,
an associate of his childhood, and
daughter of Hon. T. H. R. Tracey, one
of Honeadale's 'honored citizens. Two
children were tiorn to itihem, both of
whom died. Mrs. Seely followed them
to the grave a few years ago.
Characteristics of tho Mon.
As a lawyer Judge Seely was dis
tinguished for Ms accuracy In the
preparation and 'trial of his cases. He
hod a thorough and comprehensive
grasp of all (he principles that underlie
the many complicated questions that a
lawyer has to deal with. As a judge he
was impartial, clear, decisive and
trenohant. He was patient to hear and
thoroughly digest faots and the law In
the case and gave 'his decisions without
fear or favor. With the members of
the bar who practiced before him he
was popular and respected, for all had
their interests protected.
As a man Judge Seely was patriotic
and strong In upholding the true founda
tions of society. He was a thorough
Christian and a member and a ruling
elder of the Honesdale Presbyterian
church. After his decision to open an
ofilce In Scranton the retail nod hia mem
bershlp In the Honesdale church and
went to the Maple City weekly and
kept up his Bible class and Sabbath
school, both of Which he had conducted
with marked ability and success for
many years. By his death the place
of his birth 'has lost an honored and
valued man. He ihad the love and re
spect alike of rich and poor, high and

Last Night's Storm Played Havoc
with Street Car Traffic.
CABMEN ASK DOUBLE PARES
Gangs of Shovclcrs and One Electric
Sweeper Pressed Into Service by tho
' Traction Company Railroad Travel,
Too, Was Slightly Impeded.
After demoralizing street car traffic
about the city before 11 o'clock last
night and slightly Interfering with the
train schedules of all the lines of rail
road entering the city, the snow at an
early hour this morning was falling
rapidly and promising to Impede all
kind of travel today.
The Traction company at 10 o'clock
started one of its two gigantic snow
sweepers over the business streets In
the central city. At that hour traffic
had stopped on the Adams avenue and
South Side HneB and was very uncer
tain on other lines; at 11,:S0 o'clock the
electric traffic was practically aban
doned throughout the city.
During the later hours Lackawanna
avenue corners contained crowds of
Impatient people who were finally com
pelled to hire cabs or walk home, and
by midnight cabmen were asking
double prices, which were paid with
very little grumbling.
Drifting on the Pocono.
Engineer Loomls, of engine No. 241,
which pulls the midnight train from
New York, reported that drifts from
four to five feet deep were gathering on
Mount Pocono where the wind wan
blowing at a terrific rate. He antici
pated considerable trouble by this
morning. The train was fifteen minutes
The ascent-of Lackawanna hill to
North Main avenue had to be aban
doned by the Traction company's cars
at an early hour, and cars were run
along Robinson street and Jackson
On the South Side all the cars were
delayed as early as 9 o'clock, and
would-be passengers were compelled to
save their & cents by trudging on foot.
On the Green Ridge Suburban route
several cars were stalled opposite the
Passengers from Peckvllle and Provi
dence were detained all along the line,
several cars coming together at some
point where traveling was difficult.
The running of the car along the re
cently laid route to the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western crossing on
North Main avenue was abandoned.
Trouble at Pcckvillc,
Late reports from Peckvllle Indicated
that the snow lay eighteen Inches deep
and that all the cars were blocked.
Several large gangs of shovellers and
sweepers were put at work on the
street car tracks about midnight. It
was the opinion then of the manage
ment that with the aid of the electric
sweeper regular travel could be re
sumed at the usual hour this morning
provided that the storm abated.

appreciated as a gift ut this time of the year. Just think of a man's
Mackintosh at $8.00 or $10.00 as good as a $15.00 garment, or an ele

covered, from $1.00 up, und then our Cloak and Fur departments are
full of desirable goods. Do yon know that we have more Cloaks and
Capes in our store than any tlir.ee stores iu the tfty.
Consequently, ours is the stock to select from and our prices are
right. Almost forgot to mention that we have a splendid line of Neck'
wear, Cloves, Handkerchiefs, etc.
