NEVER SAW HIS WIFE.
The Strange Romance of a Kansas
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatcli.
‘■He has never seen his Wife!” This was
the statement which fell on the ears of the
Pust-Dispatcli correspondent as he was
slowly walking down West Sixth street.
Two gentlemen were standing in a doorway
engaged in conversation, and it was the re
mark of a tall, well-fed, elderly gentleman
which was heard.
The idea certainly savored of the queer,
and the curious correspondent stopped, de
termined to find out if possible the story of
the man who never saw his - wife. The tale
was drawn out, and a strange one it proved
to be. A gentleman who was not blind,
who was in full possession of all his facul
ties, and who hail been married for over
two years, had never seen his wife!
We will call him Frank Green. Were his
real name known many a friend and many
a business acquaintance would start in sur
prise. Likewise we will call the lady in the
case Miss Black, for it would be decidedly
unpleasant for her high connections in this
city, and it would afford too much gossip
at the club, were her true name used. Miss
Hortense Black was once the idol of society
here, for she was beautiful, intellectual and
refined. She moved in the highest circles,
and uo fashionable entertainment was con
sidered a success without her presence. Ad
mirers she had by the score, rich and poor,
handsome and homely, but none did she
favor. In July, 1885, in company with her
parents, who seemed to take pleasure in in
dulging her in every caprice, but who had
some wild notions of a high marriage for
her, she went North and stopped for two
weeks in the pleasant city of St. Paul. On
the last day of her stay there, while riding
from one of the resorts in the suburbs of
the city, she
LOST HER PORTMANTEAU,
which contained nearly SIOO in money and
a half-dozen cabinet photographs of herself.
The next morning in the principal papers
she offered *lO reward for the return of the
articles, and before 9 o’clock it was sent up to
her room, together with a handsome little
note, saying that the finder did not care for
the $lO, but begged to retain as his reward
one of the pictures. She could not well re
fuse the request under the circumstances,
and replied that he was welcome to the re
ward he asked.
That day the family left St. Paul, and in
a few weeks returned home to Kansas City.
Miss Hortense had not been home a week
when she received a letter from the finder
of the portmanteau, containing a likeness
of himself, and such words as are supposed
to be written or uttered only on long ac
quaintance. She would never have replied,
ordinarily, but she gazed at the handsome,
intelligent face of the picture and—the let
ter was answered. Other letters followed,
and, strange as it may seem, the girl who
had refused her hand to many an old friend,
and many a wealthy and highly-con
nected one, promised Frank Green
whom she had never seen and knew noth
ing about, that she would marry him on
the second Wednesday in Octobor if he
came for her. After the letter had gone
she told her parents all and begged their
forgiveness. They were highly indignant
at the course of their daughter, and Mr.
Black declared that he would meet the gen
tleman from St. Paul at the door upon his
arrival, and order him from the house.
True to his word, on the evening of the
second Wednesday in October he and his
wife waited patiently for Mr. Green, while
Miss Hortense was ordered to remain in her
room under penalty of provoking the direst
MR. FRANK GREEN, OF ST. PAUL,
came. He was young, attractive, well
dressed and courtly in manners. He car
ried papers which spoke high recommenda
tion,"and which would have gained him en
trance to the most select companies; but
stern old Mr. Black met his every advance
with a frown, and the young man was
ordered to quit the place and not return.
“The manner you have taken to win my
daughter shows that you are no part of a
gentleman, sir,” exclaimed Mr. Black in
angry tones. “If you were what you should
lie your very first visit here would not be to
take away the sunshine of the house.
Marry my daughter to-night t I am aston
ished at your impudence! Go! she is not
But love knows more ways than one.
The old servants loved their beautiful
young mistress, and they could not refuse
her when she asked for a note that was
handed in from the back door, although they
shook their bends gravely. They said noth
ing in regal'd to the note to the master, but
when, an hour later as the shades of night
were falling, Miss Hortense, heavily veiled,
took a side door from the house and was
ushered into a waiting carriage by a
stranger, they felt it necessary to speak, and
Mr. and Mrs. Black were at once informed
Of the circumstance.
O, the sensation of that hour! Mr. Black
hurried out and saw the carriage going at a
lively gait down the street. A hack was
passing, and entering it, he gave hurried
orders to overtake the carriage ahead. But
the task was not so easily accomplished.
The runaway couple managed to elude the
irate parent for a time, and the latter never
overtook them until a Justice had pro
nounced the last word that made them man
and wife. Miss Hortense still wore her
heavy veil, and it was not removed until
after the trying scenes which followed. Her
father, with a wrathful curse, took her from
her husband, drove with her rapidly home
CONFINED HER IN HER ROOM,
Never had the proud Black family con
ceived of such a disgraceful affair as this.
Could they ever hold up their heais again ?
By morning Mr. and Mrs. Black had
formed plans for the future. They would
take their wayward daughter abroad at
once, and she would never see her husband
again. Accordingly, they traveled the
Continent for two long years, Frank Green
in the meantime remaining in Kansas City,
engaged in a most profitable business, but
ever mourning for his lost wife —the wifo
he had never seen. He knew not where
she was, only that she was not in
America. He was true to his
marriago vows, and he never doubted
that tho girl whose picture had so captured
his heart was true to hers. He wondered
sometimes that she did not writo to him,
and then he thought of the strict watch
which doubtless was kept upon her every
movent, and preventing even a line reach
ing him. The time dragged slowly enough
to the young husband. Were it not that he
lost himself much in business those days
would have been an eternity to him. Yet
he never lost hope entirely that gome day
she would return to him, and the happiness
so long denied would come in full measure.
And Hortense Green, far away in a for
eign laud, grew sorrowful and pale. She
had loved, and her punishment was almost
more than she could bear. Nothing cheered
her, an . day by day the pallor deepened on
her cheeks, and she presented a striking
contrast to her former self, when she was
called “the sunshine of the house.” At first
she tried to see her wrong and do as her
parents wished, forget the man who had
been the cause of all the trouble. But in
vain; they had been made one flesh, one
blood,’and so it seemed to her. She could not
forget him, and separation only "made the
heart grow fonder.” Then she chafed at the
course of her parents, and entreated them
to take her back to him. But they became
angry and commanded her never to men
tion liis name again. Time passed,
slowly indeed, to all. They visited the
most popular resorts in the world and
viewed all the scenes and places of interest,
but the throe were little amused; time found
them much changed. At last the hearts of
the parents were touched by the appearance
of their daughter, and her evident misery.
Mr. Black found that his business interests
in Kansas City required his personal atten
tion, and he decided to return with his fam
ily at once and to relent toward the young
husband, if he should be satisfied that he
was respectable and really loved his daugh
ter. It occurred to him that if two years
could not make the two forget each other a
longer time could not, and, taking pity on
poor Hortense, the old man resolved to try
a different course and make the best of it he
Two years to a day after they left Kansas
City they came backhand once more found
themselves in their handsome old home.
Mr. Black hunted up his son-in-law, found
him exemplary and all, and appointed a
time for re-uniting the lovers. When the
time came there was rejoicing in the Black
household. Hortense was pale, hut her eyes
were bright, and a look of joyful expecta
tion was on her face. The mother watched
her furtively, and spoke to her in the kind
est tones, which were reciprocated. The
father was nervous and talked little.
SEES HER FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Frank Green came in. Mr. Black shook
his hand. Mrs. Black bowed cordially.
Then the young husband was formally pre
sented to the young wife —the wife he had
never seen until that moment. “Mrs.
Green, Mr. Green,” spoken in a choking
voice by the father. One instant they stood
reading each other’s face, and, oh! the look
of unutterable relief and joy and love that
was exchanged. One instant—bowing in
acknowledgment of the introduction, then
their hands met. their bosoms heaved with
emotion and two words were breathed al
He put one arm around her and kissed
her, and she sobbed for a moment on his
This was the meeting.
To-day there is not a happier couple in
Kansas City than young Mr. and Mrs.
Green. Theirs indeed was a strange love
affair. The parents, it is safe to say, will
never regret that they relented, for they are
now more than pleased with their hand
Although but a few short weeks have
elapsed since the latter found his long-lost
bride, the young couple are already settled
in one of the richest houses on the East Side.
ROUTING A MASHER.
A Story of Modern Life, the Scene Be
ing Laid in a New York Horse Car.
From the New York Sim.
There were only six persons in a street car
that was rattling lazily along up town the
other afternoon. There wasn’t even a cigar
ette smoker on the front platform to arouse
the social instincts of the driver and the
conductor, a little man, with a flannel band
round his neck, who leaned back on the
brake handle and looked disinterestedly at
the messenger boy inside, who was vigor
ously chewing gum and reading a half
dime edition of “Hair-lipped Dick, or the
Terror of the Lohunga Gorge.” Next to the
boy sat a young lady of pleasing appear
ance. She was calculated to attract atten
tion from her neat little bonnet, with its
aigrettes nodding wantonly among the
olive moire ribbons, down to the little kid
encased feet resting lightly on the wooden
matting. The effect of her dress and its
several fashionable attachments was
iridescent and dazzling. To add to this, she
had a pretty face. Her black eyes, though
well behaved, had no timidity in their
glances, and helped to make up the dazzling
The car stopped and a man got on. Robust,
well dressed, well jewelled, and well along
in life was he. He looked a prosperous
merchant, a club man, “one of the boys”—
and he looked at the girl. And he kept on
looking. He was evidently one of those
valuable individuals who had done the same
thing before, though not at the same girl.
His he s got into that peculiar preparatory
attitude so often noticed in mashers, so that
if the girl should rest her eyes on him for a
momeut the lips could jump quickly into a
smile of an interrogatory nature.
The girl’s black eyes, in their prances from
this object to that, lit on the man’s face
once or twice, only to dart indignantly
away. But he kept looking, and she was
evidently aware ot it.
Suddenly she shifted her position a bit, so
as to squarely confront him, and, bending
forward slightly, began gazing at his feet.
It was a curious, almost mystified look that
took possession of her pretty face, The man
looked startled, bent forward, and looked at
his feet, which were all that a well-dressed
man could ask for in app aranee. He looked
at the girl again. She was still manifesting
a curious interest in his shoes. She even
shifted her dainty form again, and looked
harder still at his feet until the man drew
them in a bit. Still she looked. Again the
man himself looked at them, and then,
while she seemed more puzzled than ever
over them, he looked absolutely puzzled
over her. He was evidently getting un
comfortable, and his lips lost that peculiar
preparatory attitude, and were in no danger
of breaking into a s-vile. He drew his feet
in still more, shoved them out, and looked
at them, while she showed symptoms of
terror; then he drew them back till his
heels were plump against the woodwork
under the seat.
At this impressive moment, that Ameri
can trait whereby when a person stops and
looks at anything every one who notices the
actstopsand looks too, although t ere is
nothing in particular to see, liegan to make
it still further uncomfortable for the
masher. An elderly lady who sat a little
distance from the man, and who noticed
how mystified the dazzling young woman
seemed to be over something in the direction
ot the man’s feet, adjusted her glasses and
looked down too. Bhe of course saw noth
ing but the highly po!ishi“d shoes, but the
man got very uneasy, and drew his feet
under sideways as far as he could, while he
tried to look calmly out of the window. The
lady at the end of the car, seeing her neigh
bors puzzled over something, bent way for
ward and looked sidelong at the man’s feet.
He drew them clear in till they rested
awkwardly on the toes. The iridescent
young lady was gazing at them as hard as
ever. The only creature in tho car who had
not gazed in that direction was the messen
ger boy, who was now chewing his gum in
spasms of activity, for he had got to where
Hair-lipped Dick was riding a wild mustang
over a perilous mountain track to save
the beautiful young heroine of Tohunga
Gorge from two painted Apaches.
The car stopped and another young lady
of fashion got in, Who knew the iridescent
young lady, and the latter whispered some
thing in her ear, and both bezan looking
hard, very hard at the man's feet.
It was more than he could stand. He got
up and stepiied quickly and awkwardly off
the car. The girls looked at each other and
The woman nearly opposite leaned for
ward aid asked in an undertone; “Say,
what was the matter?”
“Oh, nothing,” said the iridescent girl,
with charming frankness. “The big goosv
tried to flirt with me, and I simply got him
out of the way by looking at his feet! That
will always make them get out of the way.
No man can stand it. I don't sit still and let
men keep gazing impudently and insultingly
at nie. No girl need to. Just look at their
feet. They’ll go.”
As soon" as the prosperous-looking masher
got off tho car he climbed into a bootblack's
chair. The bootblack looked surprised, for
the shoes were already highly polished.
“Do you see anything the matter with
them!” asked the man.
“No, boss, nothing the matter.”
“Well, here’s a dune for your opinion,”
and he walked off, asking himself what that
demned pretty girl was looking at.
THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1887.
Two Charming But Dubious Visitors
in Washington Circles.
Washington, Dec. 18.—A little volcano
is smouldering in a certain fashionable cir
cle where the aristocracy of the army and
navy feel most at home. There may be an
eruption, but several Rear-Admirals and a
retired Major-Geueral or two, are setting
on the crater, so to sjieak, and hope to sup
press it. Early in the season there appeared
here a gentleman anil lady, who stopped at
one of the hotels and were soon acquainted
with everybody worth knowing in
the house. The gentleman was of
fine appearance, with a blase air
and a devoted affection for the lady, who
was sprightly and pretty, and a little bit
retiring in manner, just enough to make
people think she was particular to know
whom she was talking to before she said any
thing. There wasn’t a symptom that they
wore seeking an introduction into society.
On the contrary, the lady was always re
luctant to be introduced to strangers and
inquired particularly about everybody, al
though iu a most inoffensive and apologetic
way, and when some lady, attracted by her
beauty and her diamonds, asked her to as
sist in receiving or invited her to make calls,
her husband would observe:
“I guess you don’t care about it; do you,
Thus it went on until the gentleman and
his lovely wife were led, or rather pushed
into the most select circle in town. They
dined with foreign Ministers and at the
houses of the Cabinet. She was escorted
about by the proudest men in the army and
navy, and their wives were glad to lie talked
at by him in his languid way. Both had
evidently traveled, and knew all about
Europe and the latest “fads.”
At the clubs the gentleman was at his
best, and he played a small game reluc
tantly with the Generals and the Admirals
and the men about town, provided they
wouldn’t extend the limit beyond him.
“For I’m so deucedly unlucky at cards,
you know.” he would say.
After a week or two, when the men whom
he played with came to count up their gains
and loss.-s, they noticed that the quiet,
deferential stranger always won, not much
to be sure, but enough to pay his hotel bills,
for ho invariably quit the game from S2O to
Pretty soon be liegan to talk about in
vestments so glibly that almost every man
that he met was fascinated by the enter
prise which he had very little knowledge
The net was being skillfully woven and
drawn around the fish, as all of the inno
cents now recognize, when there appeared
in Washington and at the i-ntne hotel where
the strangers were stopping a naval officer
who had been in Europe some years. He
noticed the husband and wife in the dining
room, and wondered where he had seen
them before. Then he met the husband at
the club, and was introduced to him. The
stranger noticed the officer’s puzzled ex
pression as he eyed him, and several times
one evening grew restless under it. Finally
he asked with some ill-humor why the officer
was staring at him so intently.
“Because I think I have met you some
where before,” replied the officer, “and non
I am quite sure of it.”
The stranger threw down a magazine be
had been holding with some impatience,
remarked that the room was very close and
took a stroll upstairs. The officer followed
him and requested a few moments’ private
conversation. Tiie stranger could not deny
the request, and they returned to another
apartment, from which they both soon
retired. The appearance of tne officer was
determined and the stranger left the house
without bidding any one go >d night. After
he bad gone the officer made some inquiries,
but no one seemed to know who the g -illle
inan was,‘although every one agreed that
he was a charming fellow, and one Admiral
who had dined rather n-sented the reflec
tions upon him. The officer took the Ad
miral aside and told him a story that made
his venerable flair stand on end. What it
was has not been disclosed, but the stranger
and his pretty wife left town in the morn
ing, and all sorts of stories are afloat. The
exact truth is not known, but there seems
to be a general understanding thSt the dis
tinguished-looking man is well but not
favorably known in New York and Europe,
and the innocents of Washington have had
a narrow escape.
