The girl was arrested in Newburg on a charge of granc 1 larceny on complaint of Von VVhitbeck, a Broadway liveryman, and she then gave tho iiatuo of Jennie Williamson. Tha complainant charges that the girl had stolon a fine team of horses and an old buckboard wagon. In her cell at the police station she had acted wildly at times, and tore up her wnito apron and hosiery in what seemed to be a frenzy of insanity. Early one morning, however, a white haired and bearded farmer, sixty- Qvc years of age, appeared at the police station. And ho asked to see tho teuiale horse thief, and :is soon as ho saw her exclaimed, "Yes, that's her; that's my wile.' The old man then told liis story Ho said his name was Paul .Halliday, and that ho lived on his farm, near Burling- Ham, Sullivan county, twenty-five miles west ot Newburg.

Mrs. Smith, proprietress of the intelligence office where.Haltiday firiit engaged Lizzie Brown, says the latter told her that she was living unhappily with her husband, and that he was trying to get her money away from her. Mrs. Halliday has no money on deposit in the Newburg savings, bank, as she has claim-id. It is believed that tho girl has been in this country much longer than she had admitted. Farmer Halliday is a simple rustic. He frankly admitted to mo the truth of the adag ( e that there was "no fool liko an old one, and said that he had certainly been one in marrying Lizzie Brown, and that he would never wed another woman as he had her. simply because she was a good cook and laundress.—Ex.

The young girls of Now Haven who are employed in tue corset shops, a dispatch from that city says, are noted for two things, their beauty and their self assurance. Some of the girls are unusually piquant in their manner, and all as a rule, gifted with a sufficiency of talk, which they are not slow to use whenever they get a good chance.

Ho hud therefore proposed to her, was accepted and they were married next day by a Methodist minister at Mid- illotowQ. Farmer Hnlliday said that things went along rather smoothly for a week or so, and then he discovered that Ins wife had a violent temper. About that mmo ho also made another discovery it was that Lizzie's bad a double crowr,. When he spoko to her about it she said: •'Yes, that's so, and so did Napoleon Bonaparte have a double crown to his head. Ho romiuded her that Napoleon hail luet his Waterloo, and that she would probably meet; hers if she didn't cease her violent;ebullitions of temper and give him soiiie peace. On May 2d tho old man drove to Middletown on business, leaving Lizzie at home with his son John. The latter was thirty-seven years old and half-wilted. Vylum ho returned home in the evening, Halhday found his little house a mass of smoking ruins. It had been burned down during tho day. Lizzie coolly informed her husband tbut his son John had been burned to a crisp in the ruins, and this was tpund to be the case. Ho had gone into the house, so she said, to save her from the lire, and had been unable to escope while she had succeeded in getting out.

One night recently the students were a trifle late coming up the street, and were about a block away when the girls were released.

CINCINNATI, July 8.—A little after ten o'clock to-night a fire .started •in the sub basement . of an immense building at Fourth and Elm streets, owned by William Hooper, banker, and occupied by A. B. Burkhardt & Co. manufacturers of and dealers in furs. The building had seventy-five feet frontage on Fourth street and extended 160 feet back. The front is seven _ stories high and at the rear has a height of eight and a ^alf stories. It _also extends two stories under ground; is nea-ly new and cost $200,000 to put up, and the interior adornment cost $90,000 more. Mr. Burkhart told an associated press agent tonight that he could only give a rough estimate of the value of stock in the building. It was to the best of biaf belief between $600,000 and $700,000/11^. In addition to his own im- > menso stock he stores great quantities of valuable furs for citizens every summer and these are all in the burning,building. Nothing is known of the insurance on the building or contents but both men are known to be good insurers. After the start of the fire the entire fire department of the city was called. Dense volumes of smoke at first filled the streets then with a sudden burst the flames came through the roof. The walls soon began to crumble and the building and contents became an irretrievable loss. The t fire department devoted its whole attention to prevent tho fire from spreading to valuable adjacent property which was greatly endangered. The Fourth street frontage of the building was occupied by Griershoper & Co., dealers in and manufacturers of clothing. Their stock was valued at $400,000, of which amount 3125,000 was saved. The loss is said to be covered by insurance. _ The Elm street wall fell at about midnight and half an hour later the Fourth street wall fell on the roof of thf Pope Manufacturing company's three story brick building east of it. The fine stock of pointings, engravings, frames and mouldings was completely ruined and the walls of the building were crushed out into the street. The wall .in falling knocked in the west wall of .the Steinway Piano building nexi to the Pope building. By a great effort the fire was kept from communicating to the crushed buildings and at 1:30 was thought to be under control. WISCONSIN STATE NEWS. A alTUEW D OL.U AIAX'S WAYS.
