his harrowing tale to a reporter It is as follows I have been engaged in tha fruit commis sion business in Chicago for years Two years ago through some lady friends 1 formed the acquaintance of the daughter oi E D Smith postmaster of Jewell City Kan During the correspondence that fol lowed we exchanged photos and became en gaged to marry When our engagement was made known to her father he expressed a desire to know something more of me than he had heard and camo to Chicago to look up the history of my career During his stay in Chicago he dug deep into everj act of my life and upon his return to Jewel City wrote mo that he approved of the en gagement and therefore sanctioned our in tended union But Budding Hope Is Blasted Our marriage was to have taken place lasl week and on tho day

marriage she aaid she was sorry it couldnt be but she had changed her mind and didnt intend to marry me Perhaps you can imagine my feelings when 1 heard her say that I had given her mj heart and unreserved love and besides had fitted up a home for her in Chicago that 1 knew would charm her All my hopes thai I had bailded up the many pleasures and tho ambition of a life were wasted in thai moment andit can hardly bo wondered al that I feel heartbroken over it O Fair and False One found upon investigation that during the period of her engagement sho had not deported herself in a manner that would in dicate that her heart was given and her hand engaged but instead encourage numerous lovers who lavished presents upon her nil of wh ich she accepted Whea I realized thai sho meant to put me off I became almost frantic but I hod gone to a great expense preparing to greet her as my wife and almost everything I had in the world was put intt was to have been our home Revenge Is Sweet Then it was when I calmly reviewed the situation that I concluded I was duped aitd determined that I would defend against such imposition I secured the ser vices of an attorney to whom I told my story and
