The Daily WamegaD. Just before we take Invetory of our Stock we will give Unheard of Bargains in Glass and Queensware Broadbrim's New York Letter The arrest in Brooklyn of a prominent real estate man named Swimm, on Tuesday last, is the culmination of one of the quaint little romances ot our city life. Mr. Swimm is an eminently respectable citizen, apparently retiring in his rather clerical in his appearance, and Is in fact regarded as one of the staunchest pillars of the took place in the person of a country editor. You don't often catch a country editor tripping in New York, for as a general thing they are gentlemen of sound morals and good general information, and about as fly on all the ins and outs of city life as the bunco men themselves.

His father and a delegation of his country neighbors came post haste to the city, and the town was turned upside down and inside out, looking for this country editor. The morgue was searched, the river was dragged, and all sorts of uncomplimentary articles appeared in the rural press as to the daneer to which country editors were exposed in visiting New York. After, weeks of constant anxiety and tireless search, he turns up in Denver, Colorado, minus his twelve hundred dollars, and suffering from a bad case of mental aberration.

Ayer's Hair Vigor, rRKPARKD 8T Dr. J. Ayer Lowell, Mail. Bold ly Druggists aud Farfunwri. Baptist church to which he belongs-Still there must be a little of Old Adam left in Brother Swimm, notwithstanding his conversion and his years' for a few months ago he thought he would haye a little quiet lark, so he put an advertisement in the paper for a housekeeper, and.

as he advertised himself as a gentleman of means, he did not want a wrinkled old tabby, but a nice, bright, plump, vivacious' intelligent, accommodating housekeeper; in short, just the right kind of a housekeeper for a handsome gentleman of mens. It is hardly necessary to say that be got a bushel and a half of letters, and a hundred and seventy-three photographs. Now Mr. Swimm didn't want any housekeeper, he had a most excellent housekeeper in Mrs. Swimm, an estimable lady, who had darned his stockings and faithfully attended to the duties of Swimm's household for over thirty vears.

But on the receipt of his mail Swimm looked oyer the letters and photos, and finally pitched upon an angelic widow in New Haven to preside as the keeper of kis mythical house. Donning his Sunday suit, he kissed Mrs. Swimm good bye, and told her he was going to look after a little bit of real estate which he had his eye. Now, if Mr. Swimm had said personal property, it would have been nearer the truth, but he did not.

Well, Mr. Swimm hurried up to New Haven and met the charming widow, and wonderful to relate, she was ust exactly like her photo, but then she wasn't exactly a widow, that is to say, a widow of the grass variety. That was just the kind of housekeeper that Mr. Swimm was looktnj: for; she suited him to a dot, aud by way of binding the bargain, he took her down to Black Bock on a ten cent excursion, and there they had Bock beer, fried clams, deviled lobsters, ice cream, and a jolly good time generally. So far all was plain sailing; but Mr.

Swimm had hardly reached his hotel, his head swimming wlthecstacsy at his prospective bliss with his new housekeeper, when a knock came at the door, and a gentleman walked in, who called himself Mr. Sibley, and desired to inquire of Mr. Swimm, what in Jerusalem he had been doing with his wife Perhaps Mr. Swimm thought that this was Sibley's ghost, at any rate the next day he got up and dusted for Brooklyn. He told Mrs.

Swimm that he had concluded not to invest in that property, and made a straight bolt for his office. He had hardly got seated behind his desk, when the grass widow Sibley stood in the door with blood in her eye. She soon gave the gentleman of means to understand, that while it was an easy matter to catch a grass widow, it was not quite so easy to get rid of her, and in her particular case it would require guilders to do it. Mr. Sibley's constitution was so badly shattered by Swimm's indelicate attentions to his wife, that it required at least ten thousand dollars to put him in passable repair.

The suit was to have come off last week, but it was understood to have been settled out of court, for Swimm failed to materialize. But though Mr. Sib ley's honor was satisfied, Mrs. Sibley's was not, and this week she had him arrested for libel, and if she succeeds, she may convluce Old Swimm that widows are dangerous things to fool, Rrass or no grass Occasionally we get very much excited over sudden and mysterious disappearances. A man or a woman drops out ot sight, and sometimes that Is the last of them, and then 'again, unmijr.imea it ain't.

One of those events occurred last week. Mr. Clar ence Cook, the son ot a wealthy gen. tleinan. was going to be married to one of the most beautiful and aminble young ladies in the city.

The nffair was laid out to be very swell, indeed all through the evening and afternoon the presents came pouring in. The church was decked with flowers. One of the toniest clergymen in the city was engaged to tie the nuptial knot Fifteen hundred Invitations were is i sued, and even then nearly one-half of I I 1 1 1. -1 lnn nt.t In tueir intimate menus wen the cold.

Monday afternoon as James Snod-grass was trying to hack his team at the mill, his horses attempted to perform varied acrobatic feats, and in one of the acts their "feets" became tangled in such a manner as to throw both horses to the ground. Quite a crowd called to see the circus, but no damage was done, other than the cut ting of harness to give the horses a chance to get up.

Frank Wells, Jas. Henry, and Mr. Gailor started Monday night, with their 87 head of horses for Saratoga, New York. They were accompanied by two youig colored boys, who will no doubt, find plenty to do if they jump every time Jim. Henry speaks to them.

The horses, Mr. Wells informed us, were much better than the ones previously bought here, and they expect to dispose of them at a handsome profit. Their Business Booming.
