Tboy had on.- child, and lived together until Doc. 31, 18(11) On that day Mrs. Tucker, aftor a qunrn-i with her husband, loft his house in Chlcngi and disappeared. It was two years after •ward before Tuckor, then n traveling salesman for a Chicago carriage houst-, hennl anything of her. His information camo in i. newspaper notice that Mrs. Tuckor had ap piled for a divorco from him in some out-of- the-way town In Kansas. He took pains to ascertain that tho divorco was granted ann thon married a second wifo. IVife No. 3 Not a SUCCORS. Tucker nnd wifo No. 2 lived together iu Chicago for several yours. They had one child, but it died. They quarreled, Tucker accusing Mrs. Tucker No. 3 of fondness for other men. She retorted in kind, churning Unit ho wosrtou much given -to.inflection.for other women. The. inovitablo supnrnVuii- followed. Tucker deserted wife No. 2 1111- wontwest. He brought up in Utah, Bit. thereabout 1SHO, ho procured a Utah dlvorc.- from wife No. 2. Ho could not stay nwnj from Chicago, and in a yonr ho was bad. hero again. Two- marital experiences wcr. not enough for him. '.Vtfo No. 1 had got n divorco in Kansus, and had married again Her second husband was a mau named Morris, nnd they were living happily together in Kansas. Wife No. 2 had not followed hn example. She was living quietly in Chicago, with no knowledge, so it is said, that Turk'-i 1 hod a Utah divorco. Tuckor, on tho other band, feeling safe Iu tho fact that N->. 1 hn-i divorced him iu Kansas and that ho had di vorced No. 2 iu Utah, took to himself a thin' wife. _. __. .' .:. In Trouble About Wife No. 3. After visiting his, father iu Chicago hi went to Kanknkt'O, where lie embarked on his third matrimonial venture. Wifo No. i followed him there, caused his arrest foi bigamy in marrying wifo No. 8, nnd n lengthy trial followed. . Tucker's defense was that ho was divorced in Utah, but tho Utah divorco was attacked ns void because the statutory timo of publication was not observed by ono week. Tucker was found guilty and • appealed to the appellato court, which reversed tho Kan kakoe court and remanded tho caso. Tucker took a change of vonuo to Llvingsttm county. Tho second trial occurred at Pontiac, and resulted in his being found guilty the second timo and sentenced to three years in tha penitentiary and to pay J350. A Startling Development. While ho was incarcerated wifo No. 3 procured a legal divorce from him and married again. Tho two trials resulted in a probing of Tucker's career back to bis ruarriago t«i wifo No. 1, Josephine Putorson, in Wayland, Ills.—It-^was-discoverod "that her divorce, like Tucker's Utah divorco from wifo No. 2, was void. The notary who certified to the publication of tho suit did not make a jurat, and wife No. 1's marriage to Morris in Kan sas was no marriage at ail, and her five chil dren were illegitimate. . . Tho Tangle Untangled. Tockor has just served his term and is s free man. In his three years' imprisonmeiil the fact of the illegality of his first wife's di voree, as brought out on his trials, was constantly before him. He no sooner gol to Chicago than he sought lo< gal advice His third wife was nl his father's waiting for hi m, but If he went back to her he could be prosecuted, owing tc tho informality in his first wife's divorce, so the lawyer told him. The only thing to b done was to got wifejNo. 1 here and"procur« a valid divorce. Mrs, Morris was com mnnicated with and the facts laid befor* her. She had never heard of tho trial ami sentence of her husband of twenty years ago, and the information was the first she had received. It was a great shock to her. Bhi was so prostrated by tho revelation that slit was a wife in name only that aho oouldn'l travel for several days. After her testimony had been given yesterday, Judge Tuthill said the evidence was sufficient, and signed the decree divorcing a couple whose twenty years of separation have been fraught with vicissitudes unexampled before. Puttie* of the Cue. It was a small matter to Judge Tuthill. It was a small matter to his gray-bearded clerk, but what a big thing to the shrinking woman iu black who sat with her head buried in her' handkerchief, sobbing hysterically, while tho motherly face of Mrs. Dr. Tucker bent over her and tho gentle hand ol tha mother of tbe husband the shrinking form desurted two decades ago pressed back the hair tinged with gray and bathed the fevered temples with ice-water. The divorced husband spoke a few kind, tender words to the misery-stricken woman and gently helped her out into the ball, away from the curious gaze of the score of courtroom habitues. Tucker went to his father's house yesterday to rejoin his third wife, who, though married for nearly four year*, is yet a brldo. c=n> cm -i-it. -i re inning hiq c-31 e nivl n^uniui^ IIH prnfr--non of jourrmlkra.

Tho Slyness of the Crawfish. A correspondent of Tho Forest and Stream writes that ho recently observed a very cunning and ingenious trick of n crawfish (or craylish) for catching flies. "Sitting on the bank of a muddy pond, or 'borrow pit,' over tho surface of which many small flies were swarming about, I observed that the crawfish camo to tho surface near the water's edge, nnd, turning over on the side, the tail probably touching bottom, with claws and legs 'sprudHng'-about-in- tho water, ho assumed the exact semblance of dead creatures floating on tho water. In n few seconds (lies would alight on tho apparently dead crawfish, and as soon as ono got into tho proper position there was a sudden and instantaneous flip, when fish and flies would disappear together under the water. In a few seconds more he would appear on the surface and go through the same maneuver, with the same 'result," There were, perhaps, two or thi-eo dozen of them in v,'..-vi!'.l F"-- ilia THl»hl anil fr-t this iU-m in tlm pnp-r.
