Bow &Lost his "Stennis."
The Cleveland Herald: relates the.
following story: A. man land his wife
who have , been living on the West Side,
not on the most peaceable-terms, sepa
rated the. other day, and, at- the sequel
shows,-the wife•, whom he had• taken for
"better or worse," got the best of it.
Raving .converted Considerable of his
property into cash, the View of an
ultimate separation from her, be placed
the money-82.400 in Government
bonds—between the lining and outside
of his vest, taking care to have the
aperture through which it reached the
depository carefully sewed, by a`worrian
with whom he was at peace, or, in other
words, had buried the hatchet. This
woman, doubtless believing she mould
eventually be well paid for her trouble,
.told it to a friend, with an injunction
'not to whisper it for the world." That
friend whispered it to another in whom
She had the utmost confidence, with a
a similar.injunction. and the secret ( ?)
finally leaked into the wife's ear.
One night while the husband, wlio
like ,Feffengruntz in the Black Crook,
occupied. ,'.separate apartments." was
sleeping soundly, she stole into his rooin,
parried away the vest, and quickly trans
ferred the money to her b d osom, (perhaps)
replacing it with a medical._ almanac,.
lu the morning the husband happened ,
to. be unusually gross: A quarrel en:,
sued, followed by an actual separation,
he going. to the depot, and she to a
i(ational 'Bank to4raw the intereetlon
the . bonds. ' At the depot he informed
a friend of the seParation, and patting
his hand on the almanac;said - shi Wduld
regret the course she had taken,loi he
hid' all the "stamps." Swearing he
would never return; he took the Toledo'
train,',with fifty to one 'hundred dollare
in his pocket, and has not been heard
from since. Probably he has not - had
occasion ; to use the "stamps" in his vest.
His wife has gone to her friends in In-_
diana with nearly $4,500, including the
interest, which will buy her a snug home,
or a,clozen divorces in that State; if she
