TOM THUMB'S WIDOW. REVEALS SECRETS OF THE SHOW The Countess Magri has b?en loosing floods of reminiscence in Bridgeport. This is intelligible when it fe under- stood that the Countess was formerly Mrs. Tom Thumb and lived" in Bridge- port. Indeed, just 37 years ago she and her midget husband held their marriage reception here. The host and hostess stood on a marble-topped table, and it was the biggest reception the town ever saw. Recently the Countess visited the grave of the lamented Tom Thumb, likewise that of the late P. T. Barnum, / which is opposite it. After she left the cemetery she related for the first time certain passages in the biography of the Tom Thumbs that are worth re tellinsr. The discerning Mr. Barnum first met Tom Thumb in 1842, when the latter was a boy of eight. His name was Charles'Stratton, aùd his father was a drayman. Mr. Barnum offered the father 3dol. a week for the use of the boy, and a week later exhibited him in New York as "Gen, Tom Thumb;" Two years later the midget,, whose commercial value meantime had greatly increased, was taken to England, pre- sented to the Que^n and to other ! sovereigns. On returning, the pros- perous little "General" built himself a comfortable home in Bridgeport and subsided for a few years. , In 1862, however, Mr Barnum "met a certain Lavinia Warren, a midget from Middleboro, Mass., then 20 years old. Genius told him what to do with her. She was promptly installed in - his sister's home in New York, and the "General" was invited to meet her. The Romance so fostered developed satisfactorily, and in a few months, to the great edi fication of the large public that al- ready knew Torn Thumb, his engage- ment was announced. On Feb. 10,1863, they were married in Grace Church by the. Rev. Thomas House Taylor, and the whole world read about the wedding. Two wefks later they held their historic reception in Bridgeport. The next year- an innocent little item was smuggled into-the English papers to the effect that '""the Tom Thumbs had v ' A Baby Son. It was widely copied, and by the time Mr. Barnum and bis midget charges arrived the British public was worked up to a considerable degree of expec- tancy as regarded the baby. In Egyptian Hall,* London, ,they were exhibited all over again-Gene- ral Thumb, Mrs. Thumb, and the baby. The performance was repeated all over Europe, and the Thumbs came back richer than they had ever been before. People have occasionally won v dered since then whatever became , of that baby! The Countess Magri ex > plains the mystery. "I never had a baby," she declared recently. " The Exhibition Baby came from a foundling hospital in the the first place, and was renewed as often as we found it necessary. A real baby would have grown. Our first baby-a boy-grew very rapidly. " At the age of four years he was taller than his father. This would never do. Our friends predicted that our son would be a. giant, and that iii a few years his parents would look ridiculous alongside of him. . We appealed to Mr. Barnum. He agreed with us. He thought our baby should not grow. Thus we exhibited English babies in England, Frénch babies in France, and German babies in Ger- many. It was-they were-a great success. Mr. Barnum was a great man." ~* ? i SEND rr IN. THE SUNDAY TIÍIES wants good original matter from any source.

Frederick Bofos Graves yesterday (says an American newspaper) obtained from Justice Tenax in the Supreme Court a decree ot absolute divorce from his wife, Caroline Heustis Graves, an actress. The litigation had been in progress for more than a year. The testimony which was of a sensational character, was bittered sealed, together with all the papers and affidavits. Nb particu- lars are obtainable as to'the circum- stances ander which the Decree was Granted. It is known, however, that Mrs. Graves is forbidden longer to make use of that name. Young Graves and Caroline Heustis met several years ago, when ehe was appearing at the Casino in "The Tele- phone Girl." Graves became enamored of the pretty girl, and night after night met her at the theatre. Finally, on the evening of January 2, 1899, they went over to Jersey City ' And were Married. Then they came back to this city, Mild young Graves told his father what had occurred. There was a scene, for the elder Graves was seriously displeased not alone at the marriage, but that his son should have taken such a step without consulting him. A reconciliation was finally brought about. Mr. Graves, senr,, concluded to lend a helping hand to his son aud established him and his wife in a Handsomely Famished Plat. ' There the young people resided hap- pily for a few months. Then a disa- greement arose-and they separated. ' The eWer Graves took back the fund- : ture, for which he had paid 4,000 dois. Mrs. Graves then began r suit for a divorce from her young husband, but the case was never tried. He left the city, and then his wife brought a suit : against her father-in-law for 50,000 dollars for the alienation of her hus- band's affections. That case has never been tried, but Is Still Pending; Last November Mr. Graves began his suit for a divorcé from bis wife be- cause of certain circumstances that came to his ears concerning a-visit she paid in Philadelphia in 1900. Mrs. Graves'denied all her husband's alle- gations, and made counter-charges against him on which she demanded a divorce. Daniel F. Cohalan was appointed1' referee to take the evidence, and he reported that Mr. Graves had estab- lished his case, and was entitled to à divorce. ? _ SMOKE D T DARK O PLUG Q PLUG C L C E O BUSINESS NOTICES -' Messrs.

"Volunteer" writes :-Yon have nc doubt beard of the tronble in the ranke of the York volunteers re the 40 whc signed the petition asking the captain to place himself on the unattached list being suspended for the last twe months pending an enquiry. As the local paper is afraid to print any letter that has been sent to it about our local P.M. and captain, I respectfully ask you to bring it before th« public and hasten the'inquiry on. As I was ap- pointed one of the deputation to wait on the captain I, can give you a copy of tho complaints we have on paper. I might state that there are only eight privates left who did not sign the petition, five of these being ont of town at the time, otherwise they would have signed it. The dissatisfaction in the ranks has been through the incapacity of the captain. The Complaints. 1. At a commanding officers' parade the captain has never been known to give^iny order but "Company, advance and company retire '-this about three time*. Then "ground arms," *"Break off for about 20 minutes* smoke," ''Fäll in and march home again." Wc dor't consider that drill enough to be called away from our homes of a night. 2. Moneys owing to some of the mern; hers for paid parades have not been paid. The members have several times asked'for it. (Since this has been placed on paper the captain has sent the police around the town to tell the men to come to his office and they wfll be paid.) Some have been waiting for 18 months and over. 3. Through his treatment to several of the bandsmen the band has become a thing of the past, and as over" £100 was spent on some ot tile instruments three or four years ago, and nearly all the bandsmen left without the captain knowing whether the said instruments were ever returned or not. There are only seven brass instruments at the bar : racks and not one of them complete. One or two of them have done the dis- appearing trick altogether. 4. Under new command the band can be reor- ganised by a gentleman in the town. 5. During the Boyal celebrations he repeatedly made an ass of all his com- pany. On July 21 he kept us at the "present," and the major had to close us up, as we were keeping the battalion waiting. On the same day he walked off and left us all standing outside the Perth Drill Hau, and the major had to send another officer to dismiss us. 6. On July 23 he kept ns at the shoul- der arms" when the Royal party were passing us in St. George's Terrace, ' when we should have been at the "pre- sent." Also, on the same day, the major was heard to say that he had lost the captain 'of the York men and that ho would have to go and find him. That was while we were stand- ing in St. George's Terrace. 7. There bas been no returns sent down from York for about two years, and some of the officers in Perth told several of us that the York Corps gave more trouble than all the others in the West, and that is all - through our captain. 8. Over two months ago, the captain was asked to. get'ammunition for the com- pany, ' so that we could get our class firing off before the hot weather came on. So far he has not sent for it, which means that we must do it wten it is about 110 in the shade. There are several other conip'a;nts by indi ' vidual members of tba company. He confessed himself the ni-^bt the petition was handed to him that he did not know his drill. So we think, as there are members in the corp* who can command a company, that h*î should give war, knowing tba"; all the com- pany wishes a chance. I hope you will be kind ~enou »h tn t -.ke tbi^ matter in .hand, as all the volunteers! are anxious that things will be settled as soon as po-sible. 13ut un ier the old command thc volunteers ¡lave de-1 cided to a man that they will not ; remain in the corp. j A SURE CURE Is what you want.
