A young man of Canisteo, N. Y.,
ecently found the name of a young
lady of Great Iiend in a railroad car,
upon a box cover. He wrote, request
ing her to write to blm. The letters
became frequent and affectionate. She j
sent her photograph, and received in I
return a description of a dark and
handsome lover. Thanksgiving Day
was set for the wedding, but the
bridegroom came not.
Ills sister wrote that he was 111 with
fever, and constantly calling for
;Thcda." Hastening to his bedside,
"The'dn" found that he had not been
sick, and, worse than all else, that be
was a shiftless fellow with led hair,
squint eyes and a retrousse nose.
"Theda" loves him no more. There is
a moral In this for girls capable of
seeing through a ladder.

been taken up by the Seranton 111 cy

the mat and threw off the bath robe
in which he was enveloped, ti mur
mur of appreciation went round the
room, as his splendidly developed
form came into view. "Andy" Wil
liams, of Newark, N. J., faced him.
The latter is short and Is burdened
with an over-supply of llesh, which
hung in loose folds over ills belt.
Everybody who knew anything at all
about wiestling saw immediately that
the best ho could hope to do would
be to hold Perry off for a while. He
didn't even succeed In doing this, and
Perry, without apparently Half try
ing, put lilm down twice in succession
in four minutes eight seconds, and
three minutes nine seconds, respec
tively. The next to try conclusions with
Perry was "Abe" Crocker, the wiry
little wrestler from North Seranton,
who, though he was entirely out of
Perry's class, volunteered to go on for
the amusement of the crowd, lie
seemed like a plaything in the big
man's hands, but lie squirmed and
wriggled so much that it was three
minutes and thirty-three seconds be
fore Perry got him on his back, and
when ho did so, the crowd loudly
cheored the plucky little chap.
President Harney P. Connolly an

received a letter from Prof. M. J.

Dwyer on Saturday night, Dec. 2S, at

placed in the hands of the Tribune
representative and the match was de
clared made by President Connolly.
Dwyer Is at present in AValerbury,
Conn., and defeated Harvey Parker In
that city only a week ago for !r00 a

One of the Great but Little Known
Rivers of the World.
l'r.isn tlic Ctirji.is llirrdil.
One nf the greatest rivers of the
world, llio Orinoco, Is also one of tho
least known lo Europeans. Its sister,
the Amazon, litis often been described,
by Wallace and Dates, among others,
but Humboldt remains practically the
only writer of standing upon the great
stream, which, llslng on the frontiers
of Hrnzll, runs for 2,000 miles through
Venezuela, receiving In Its course such
Immense tributaries ns the Mela nnd
Apure, and discharging Itself by a hun
dred mouths Into the South Atlantic
opposite tho Ilrltlsh Island of Trinidad.
The principal entrance, and the only
one uvaltable for sailing vessels, is the
Uoca Grande, to the south, Into which
flow, among other tributaries, the Ara
tura and the Amacura, the latter al
most coinciding in Its course with the
Schoniburg boundary line between 13rlt
Ish Guiana and Venezuela, But most of
the tralllo of the Orinoco pnsscs through
Trinidad, whore passengers and goods
are transferred to steamers almost flat
bottomed, and reach the Orinoco by the
mouth known as Macarao, tho open sea
being avoided, It was by that route
that the writer started In the Apure,
chartered for the occasion, on a trip of
i'OD miles up the great river, forming
ptobably ttie first, and certainly the
largest, party of tourists which bad
ever ascended It.
Six hours after leaving Poit-of-Spaln
the entrance of the Macarao was reach
ed, and for fourteen hours we navigat
ed a deep channel, perhaps half a mile
wide, whose attractions surprised
those who had read of the delta of the
Orinoco as a dismal swamp, thousands
of square miles iu extent, tenanted
only by a few wild Indians, who built
their bouses in among the trees, by
wild beasts and by birds. The descrip
tion Is true, though the Impression left
i$ not quite coirect. Well-nigh im
penetrable forest and undergrowth hide
ground which is for the most part
ooze, covered for half the year by wat
er. The Guaraon Indians, many of
whom paddled out to meet the steamer
and beg, in canoes roughly hollowed
fiom the trunk of a tree, and who dis
pute supremacy of these wilds with
Jaguars and alligators, are extremely
low specimens of humanity, though
attachment to their dogs, large rough
h.iiied and excellent hunters, should be
mentioned to their credit.
Hut tho passerby sees none of the
honors of this great swamp. They me
concealed by magnificent trees growing
to the water's edge, whose branches
may sometimes bo touched from the
steamer, when she Is steered close to
the shore in order to avoid the current.
Sometimes that splendid parasite, the
matupulo, has wrapped In its deadly
folds several adjacent trees, and, these
perishing, it stands alone, showing
walls of green, and resembling a large
ivy-mantled tower. Upon this and
upon the tops of the tallest trees other
parasites fling musses of blossom. A
Hock of Uuniingoes makes u brilliant
