8 FROM VILKES BARRE Mrs. William H. Conyngham died at her residence on South River street yesterday morning at 2:50 o'cloc. Eorn in this city on Feb. 28, 1869, Mrs.

Conyngham had lived here all her life. She attended school at Madame DeSilver's in New York city. On Feb. IT, 1S97, she was married to William H. Conyngham and their fifth wedding anniversary was last Tuesday.

Mrs. Oonfngham was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel G. Turner; the mother survives, also two brothers, John, of this city, and March, who is living on the Isle of Wight, and is now on his way to this city.

Mrs. Conyngham was one of the loveliest women Wllkes Barre has ever known. Her unusually happy disposition and character won warm friends and admirers weherever she went, and among all classes of people. Her sudden death yesterday morning came as a great shock. It was supposed that she was slowly improving.

Even late last night her condition was more or less satisfactory, having gone quietly to sleep about an hour before she died. Her death was absolutely wnnout sur fering because she passed from sleep to eternal rest. Even from girlhood Mrs. Conyngham took a deep interest in charity and philanthropic work. She was one of the managers on the board of the Home for Friendless Children, also the United Charities board.

To both institutions and many others she gave incalculable aid. It seems as if the people of Wilkes Barre could never forget Mrs. Conyng. ham. Although still a young woman the good she has done could easily be called a notable record for a life time, Many a home is saddened today; not only the homes of those who saw her in every day life, and 'loved her, but many a little home on the outskirts and in the poorer districts feels the gloom caused by the death of this wo man.

MINES CLOSED. The big storm caused a suspension of work at most of the mires in the region Saturday. It was impossible, owing to the heavy snow, to get cars from the sidings to the mines, while the planes and tracks are so deeply covered with the heavy snow that work would be hampered and delayed if it was attempted. It is doubtful if the collieries will be able to resume even by Monday, as the outlook is that the storm will continue all to morrow and by Monday the snow will be much deeper than it is now. STRIKE THREATENED.

A strike is in prospect at the Erie colliery No. 6, at Pittston. The drivers and runners are objecting to being placed on breaker time and want pay for every hour worked. They worked Thursday and left In the evening de claring that they would strike. There was no work at the mine Friday or Saturday and what they will do when work resumes is not known.

The difficulty has not been adjusted. MAY RETALIATE. Plymouth people are now anxious to turn the tables on this city. They say they were caused so much needless inconvenience by their quarantine established by this city that now, as there are no cases in Plymouth and there is one here, they feel like declaring a quarantine against this city. Nothing has been done yet although it is, not improbable that the Plymouth board of health will take some action.

AV0C.1. The entertainment which was held last evening in O'Malley's hall under the auspices of the jubilee choir of Hamtown, was a great success. Despite the inclement weather the hall was crowded to the doors, and a first class entertainment was rendered. The funeral of John, the 3 year old son of Mr. and Mrs.

James Burns of Miller's Grove, took place on Saturday afternoon, and was private. Interment was made in the Langcliffe cemetery. The D. H. company will pay at the Langcliffe mine tomorrow.

Attorney T. E. Brehony, who was lately admitted to the bar at Philadelphia, is spending his vacation with his parents on Spring street. The funeral of Agnes, the 1 month old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.

Patrick Ryan of the West Side, occurred on Saturday afternoon, with interment in St. Mary's cemetery. All that was mortal of the late John Gilroy of the West side was laid In their last resting place yesterday afternoon. At 1 o'clock the remains were removed to St. Mary's church, where services were conducted by Rev.

M. F. Crane. Interment was made in St. Mary's cemetery.

The Heptasophs will meet in regular session this evening. WYOMING COUNTY. Death of James E. Seeley Sheriff's Sale of Real Estate. TUNKHANNOCK, Feb.

George Rosengrant Palmer, whose husband, George Rosengrant sold her to Raymond Palmer for $3 in July, 1900, has decided to test the legality of the" "sale." She submitted to the three dollar business not because she felt that she was compelled to, but rather because she believed that she could not get a worse husband than George. Recently, how ever, George "Dorrowea ner irom Palmer in order that 'she might sign a deed for sale of some property in which she had a dower interest. This revealed to her and even convinced her that she was worth more than $3. Incidentally it might be stated FAC SIMILE OF that the transaction did not end so happily as a similar one in Hyde Park, wher a "man sold his wife to another for 25 cents. The purchaser repented of his bargain and offered to send her back and forget the quarter.

The husband refused the magnificent offer. By a diplomatic move, however, the purchaser and Wife went back to the husband and announced that they in tended to board with him. Now she is the wife of neither. But with Mrs. Rosengrant Palmer it is quite different.

Her husband was the son of John Rosengrant of classic Kasson Brook, in ancient Forkston township. He married one Carrie Spencer, and as time went along there was born to them two or three children. George purchased a small piece of property In Kasson Brook, near his ancestral home and for a while the sun of prosperity shone upon him. He even become celebrated. That was the time when he went down to Tunk hannock with his wonderful com dog and boasted 10 much of its coon catching qualities that it was pur chased by Dr.

Edgar Harding and Chief of Police Thomas Harding. Then was Rosengrants' fame heralded to the world through the newspapers. Feeling somewhat more important on this terrestral globe, George blossomed out as a book agent But the sun of prosperity was hidden behind a cloud of adversity and bad luck struck George a solar plexus blow. It was due to his neglect of work and his idle wanderings. His Chesterfleldian ways at last forsook him and politeness was conspicuous by its absence in the Rosengrant home.

His wife ventured to make a remark one day and George decided that she had no right to re 35, J. J. Quailey, 31, N. M. Finn, judge of election, Rev.

The Ladies' Aid society of the Uni versalist church will meet with Mrs. Martha Bell Wednesday. Refreshment committee is Mrs. E. Smith, Mrs.

W. Tanner. In this vicinity the roads are drifted full and travellers have to go through the fields. A Valentine social was held at the home of Mrs. Van Alstine Friday evening.

The M. E. Aid society, which was held at Mrs. G. O.

Bailey's Wednesday afternoon, was largely attended. Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Merrill, of Scranton, are going to move into E. M.

mark, and decreed that he would get rid of her. He is an original man and therefore an original thinker. He hied himself to his cousin Rayrffond Palmer, who lives on the South Mountain, between Noxen and Forkston, taking with him his wife and one child. His mission, he said, was the sale of his wife. Now Raymond was lonely and a busy man withal.

He had no time nor inclination to scurry around after girls or to attend ice cream parties. But he wanted a wife Here was his opportunity and after some haggling, the sale was concluded, the purchase money being $3, and the child "thrown 0 THE CONTRACT. in." A written contract was made and a facsimile is given herewith, and reads as follows: July 5, 1901. Raymond Parmer Bought Gorge Rosengrant woman of him for 300 dolers, and the little girl throw in, and he agread not to bother me nor me to Bother him. George Rosengrant.

George Rosengrant thereupon returned home with $3 and Raymond Palmer was happy with a newly found wife and child. George, after the lapse of time, found a purchaser for his diminutive estate in Forkston, but discovered that he could not effect the sale without his wife's signature, as she had a dower interest in the property. He thereupon went to Noxen, borrowed his own wife from Palmer and, after she signed the deed, returned her to Raymond. Now, however, another trouble has developed. RoBengrant has announced his determination to bind out one of the children.

Mrs. Carrie Spencer Rosengrant Palmer was very indignant when she heard of it and traveled to Tunkhannock, where she consulted a lawyer to find out if "the wrltln' will hold law," and If George can take the girl and bind her out just as he pleases. The alarm of war has been sounded, but for a while there is a truce, as Palmer Raymond and Carrie Spencer Rosengrant Palmer are snowed up in Noxen, while George is living a retired life somewhere as a book agent temporarily out of employment. It Is claimed that he has endeavored to corner another matrimonial venture, but that his efforts have resulted disastrously, as the maidens of Wyoming look askance at a man who holds them as cheap as three dollars. 0 Tiffany's tenement house at Lester shire, N.
