There really seemed to be a last monday s Sentinel gave to the Public the principal facts in the Case of the Frank Bixby Dwinnell elopement Case which created a great Deal of excitement in our City a the parties being Well known. Additional facts Nave come to the knowledge of the people which it now lays Belore its readers. Or. Dwinnell is a partner in an extensive wholesale shoe House who came to the City some two or three years since with a Beautiful wife and an Only daughter. They lived in the northeastern portion of the City and soon became intimate with or. Frank Bixby and his wife Nee miss june May Only daughter of Edwin May the Well known architect. Scarcely a Day passed but they visited one another though for the past year for Good and sufficient reason mrs. Bixby has not spoken to mrs. Dwinnell. Or. Dwinnell some time since had Good cause to think that Frank Bixby and his wife were two intimate and some six or eight weeks ago he sent his wife East with the understanding that they were no longer to live together. Some scandal had been created by Bixby s attentions to mrs Dwinnell but it was not until the Sentinel gave its statement on last monday that the general Public was at All apprised of the True facts in the Case. It was something Over a year ago that mrs. Bixby first discovered the faithlessness of the faithless Frank. He had come Home during the Day and pulling off his coat and Vest Laid them upon the bed and went up stairs for a Bath. Their child an interesting Little girl was playing on the bad and got into her father s pockets and his letters and papers were soon strewn All around. In picking them up mrs. Bixby noticed that one of the letters was sealed Bare a two cent stamp and was addressed to mrs. D Innell. She thought she recognized the writing As that of mrs. Dwinnell and could not help but wonder what her husband was doing with a letter directed to to at lady. Some of the family had previously said that mrs Dwinnell was coming to mrs. Bixby s to see Frank but mrs. Bixby thought Bat Little of this but when she saw this letter her Susie Cion was aroused and the More she pondered Over it the greater grew her curiosity to see the contents of this mysterious letter until at length she resolved to open it. Her worst fears were realized. She discovered that her husband loved another or pretended that he did. It was a gushing letter from her faithless husband to the faithless wife of his Friend. Mrs. B by had sufficient presence of mind to conceal the letter and then became unconscious going from one spasm into another. Of course Frank soon understood what was the matter and on his Knees pledged his word and Honor As a Man and a husband that if his wife would forgive him he would never again see mrs. Dwinnell and mrs. Bixby thought that he was keeping his word until four or five weeks ago when she was terribly a deceived. Of this further along. The supposition is that mrs. Dwinnell furnished Bixby with addressed envelopes which he would use whenever he desired to communicate with Here so that in Case they were discovered either in Frank s Possession or at her own Home it would be thought from the address which was partially disguised even from her own hand the letters were from some female Friend and they would remain intact. But the Best Laid schemes of lovers As Well As mice and men gang Ait Aglee. Four or five weeks ago mrs. Edwin May and mrs. Bixby had been visiting a relative in the Southern part of the City and upon their return they endeavoured to drive up Illinois Street but do All they could the horse would have his own Way and took them to that Bixby was not there. He had called on the monday preceding on one or two of their correspondents and seemed to be in very a Rood spirits.

May caught her Arm and held her firmly until Frank recognizing his wife sprang Forward and taking hold of her got her into her seat when seizing the reins he drove rapidly to his own House with his wife More dead than alive beside him. Frank tried to explain As Well As he was Able but made a poor Job of it although matters were quieted Down and there was no expose to the Public. Somewhere about this time or prior thereto or. D Winnell got hold of a letter either one of Hia wife s or Franks which led him to believe that Quot his wife and Bixby were to meet at Cleveland she being on her return Home from a visit East. He resolved to go to Cleveland and it is said had made up his mind to shoot Bix a if he saw him in company with his wife. One morning Frank Bixby said to his wife Quot Damn it i be got to go to Union City to Day on business of the office and i Dun c like it at mrs. May ask d him Why or. Norton could not go saying that he was a single Man and had no wife to leave at Home. Frank said that he must do his share of the work and he would have to go that he would be Back the next Day so he bade his wife Good Bye and started off. That very Day both Dwinnell and Frank Bixby boarded the train in route for Cleveland Dwinnell saw Bixby on the train but Bixby did not know that he had a fellow passenger in Dwinnell. Bat the latter had missed it in his reckoning Frank got off at Union City and d. Did t know it. He went on to Cleveland but did not find his wife there for the simple reason that she had not stopped at the Garden City but had gone on to Union City where she met the festive Frank and with him journeyed homeward or. Dwinnell arriving next Day. It was not until Aiter Frank left the City for Good that the secret of his business visit to Union City became known to his wife. On last sunday week or Bixby told his wife that Busine a called him to Cincinnati and that he would have to Start Early on monday morning. He had previously asked his rather in Law to procure him a pass in which he was unsuccessful. On the sunday before his departure he had borrowed or. May s horse and Sleigh and taken his wife and child out Riding. Of the following monday morning at half past 4 o clock he boarded a train for Cincinnati and from that time to this there have been no tidings of him other than that on last wednesday or thursday in answer to a Telegram irom May one of the clerks of the Gibson House telegraphed in return that Frank Bixby was at the Gibson House but this seems to have been a lie out of whole cloth for it has since been ascertained beyond the Shadow of a doubt that Bixby left the hotel on the same Day he arrived monday leaving his room looked the Only Trace of his having been there being a Small hand Valise with some soiled clothing therein. We understand that it was not until they were paid for it that the chambermaid and other domestics would reveal a word about Bixby. It is thought that he made arrangements with the clerk to Telegraph that he was there should any telegrams come asking As to his whereabouts. It is believed that he met mrs. Dwinnell in Cincinnati and that they at once started for califor Nln. Frank Bixby belongs to the Law firm of Norton Bixby amp Booker and his partners being anal our about him repaired to Oledn swathe 1� part of Kiwi week Only to find considerably crooked in his financial and business matters. He was treasurer of the Light infantry and is supposed to have about 9500 of their Money in his Possession. He could t be got to make a settlement with them. Suit has been entered against him by Register Jordan charging him with perjury in the settlement. Of an estate for which he was Assignee while he owes numerous creditors Small amounts. Is is also thought that forgery can be Laid at his door. Some time since Hia rather in Law went on his note for $200, which was taken at one of the Banks with the a mount raised to ?500 Bixby Drew his Money with commendable promptness All that was owing to him As a member of the firm of Norton Bixby a a Booker which it is thought he carefully hoarded As of late he declined to pay any of his debts always putting off his creditors when they called. It is supposed that he took away with him about 3,000. There is really something very painful in this Bixby Dwinnell Aff in. Each of the sinful parties deserts an interesting Little girl four years of age there being but twelve Days difference Between the Ages of the two half orphaned children. There is an inhumanity about it which makes us sad to reflect upon. The deserted husband and the deserted wife Are deserving of our warmest sympathies while the heart cannot but go out toward the Little girls thus bereft of Mother and father. Mrs. Bixby is a cultivated and refined lady and no doubt loved her husband dearly. The blow to her has been an extraordinarily severe one her life at times being almost despaired of so severe were the spasms into which she has been thrown. Or. Dwinnell is very reticent and bears up under his abandonment like a philosopher although the knowledge of the Infix it to of the Mother of his child when it first became known to him must have almost dethroned reason. Frank has not Only rendered two Hearthstone desolate but poor fool he has ruined himself forever. He was a Young Man of exceedingly Fine presence with hosts of friends who did All they could to Advance Bis interests. He was if we mistake not born and bred in the City and very respectably connected. He read Law with Mcdonald amp Butler and if he had been blessed with a proper sort of balance wheel no doubt but that he would in time have risen to considerable Eminence in his profession. Now if he escapes the Law he will forever be As one with the Brand of Cain upon his brow a a fugitive and a wander on the face of the Earth. The false wife who stole the husband of her Friend with All her Beauty can never be aught but a loathsome thing in the eyes of All right thinking people and whether she goes Down to her grave soon or late she will before the Earth is thrown upon her let a the victim to a remorse so keen that she will Many a time and Oft Pray to Exchange it for the shroud and winding Sheet.
