Fortune Teller's Husband Gets Her
WAS ARRESTED YESTERDAY
Madam Florence, of Ninth Street. Re
cently from th. National Capital. Told
County Detective l.cy.hon'e For
tnne Tuesday Night.
Madame Florence, who held forth! as
a fortune teller at 201 Ninth street.
West Hide, was arrested yesterday
morning n a warrant sworn out by
County Detective Thomas Leyshon be
fore Alderman owen u. jonn, 01 me
Fourth ward. The madame Is a mar
ried woman. Her husband Is In the
city with her and his name Is Fuller.
They came here recently from Wash
ington, D. C.
One day last week the husband sta
tioned himself on the sidewalk near
the entrance to the school of the Lacka
wanna on Jefferson avenue, as the
students were coming out at the close
of the afternoon session, and he dis
tributed handbills right and left adver
tising his wife's talents as a medium
of communication with the future.
One of the dodgers was brought to the
notice of Judge R. W. Archbald who
instructed Cpunty Detective Leyshon
to Investigate the case. Chief of Police
Simpson had also learned of the case
and he made a personal investigation;
ho found that when the Fullers came
to the city first they rented rooms at
2Ki KrunkMn avenue, and after a few
months' tenure of that place they
moved to 201 Ninth street.
c6n8TABLE'S FORTUNE TOLD
Constable Timothy Jones called upon
Madame Florence Saturday evening to
have his future revealed to him. He
laid down a silver dollar as a condition
precedent to the desired information,'
and she took out a deck of ordinary
gaming cards. After a few mysterious
shuttles she cut them and then proceed
ed to impart what the veil of the future
screenB from view.
Mr. Leyshon paid her a visit Tuesday
night. He wanted his fate disclosed
und he, too, enriched her to the value
of one cartwheel. She Was not skillful
enough to penetrate the future far or
rather near enough to learn that his
purpose was to swear out a warrant
for her arrest on the following day
and that the aim and object of his visit
was to secure evidence to be used
against her In court to punish her for
violating the law.
Before he left- he told her who he
was and to prove to her that it was
no joke, he showed his star. She made
a desperate effort to stop him from
appropriating the cards. He went be
fore Alderman John yesterday morning
and Bwore out a warrant for her ar
rest. Tho law provides that any per
son who shall pretend for lucre or gain
to predict future events by cards, by
reading the hands or head by a person's
age, or by consulting the heavenly bod
ies, unon conviction shall for the first
offense be punished by a fine not lesa
than ten nor more than one hundred
dollars, and imprisonment not lens than
fifteen days nor exceeding two years.
The second offence is punishable with
a line not exceeding J500 and imprison
ment not exceeding 5 years.
GIVEN A HEARING.
She was taken before Alderman John
at 11 o'clock for a hearing. Mr. Ley
slum and Constable Jones told their
stories, and Madame Florence did not
venture to deny that it was the truth.
On the contrary she insisted before the
alderman, whether she was or was not
violating any of the statutes of the
criminal code of Pennsylvania, there
was no humbug about her and she was
able to foretell future events as she
represents. She was directed to furn
ish 1300 ball for her appearance at
court. Mrs. Adela Thomas, who lives
on Ninth street In the same building,
and who swore that she owns property
In the North End, qualified surety for

George Phillips Would Not Marry and
Now He is a Defendant. '
MISS MARVEL THE TLAIXTIPP
She Thinks $10,000 W III Be Necessary to
Repair tbe Damage Done to Her Af
fections by the Conduct of
the Man She Loved.
Miss Mary Marvel Is one r.f Jessup's
pretty young women. She Is Just bud
ding Into glorious womanhood and a
perfection of face and figure that mark
her as a person of unusual attractive
ness. Some time ago she met George Phil
lips, who is also a resident of Jessup.
He was charmed by her beauty, youth
and cleverness and wooed her so ar
dently that at length In response to his
pleading she confessed that his love
was reciprocated and that she was
willing to become his partner for life.
Last Saturday was the day fixed ror
the nuptials and several weeks prior
thereto the young woman was deeply
engrossed In the preparation of her
trousseau. So Intent was she In that
most glorious of tasks for woman that
she ejuite overlooked the fact that her
expected husband-to-be was losing
some of his ardor and did not greet her
bo fondly as In the old days when they
first murmured the "sweetest story
ever told." Saturday, the day that
Miss Marvel fondly expected to bring
her so much happiness, brought Instead
a sad and bitter awakenlng.l
NO LONGER LOVED HER.
Several hours before the time fixed
for the marriage, Phillips called on
Miss Marvel and asked for a private
Interview. He told the young woman
that his love for her had been dying
out until naught but the expiring em
bers remained, and that he would be
untrue to himself and to her If he went
to the altar professing for her a love
he did not feel. He closed the painful
interview by announcing as his ulti
matum that he would not marry her.
At this distressing news Miss Marvel
succumbed and Phillips retired. The
bridal gown was laid away, the Invita
tions to the wedding were recalled and
the Jilted bride retired to her room that
no one might see her grief.
Then came the news that Phillips
had given his heart to, another and
would soon lead her to the altar. That
determined Miss Marvel and her uncle,
John Grow, upon the course they should
pursue. They came to this city and in
structed Attorney John F. Murphy to
at once begin an action against George
Phillips for damages for breach of
LARGE DAMAGES ASKED.
Mr. Murphy obeyed, and the declara
tion in the case was yesterday filed with
Prothonotary C. E. Pryor. The amount
of damages Miss Marvel asks as a
balm for her wounded affections is $10,
000. She was evidently much attached
to Phillips, and her appearance indi
cates that she has suffered greatly
since he Jilted her.
Miss Marvel is not yet 21 years of age.
Her parents reside on the other side of
the Atlantic, and she has for years
made her home with her uncle, Phil
lips is 26 years of age nnd Is quite well-to-do.
They obtained a marriage li
cense two weeks ugo.
A capias was issued for Phillips yes
terday and placed in the hands of the
sheriff. It will bo served today, and
Phillips will bo asked to furnish $1,000
ball or go to Jail.
