In Montreal are living two sisters who are actors in as singular a romance as was ever penned by novelist. They lost their husbands under very strange circumstances seventeen years ago. The elder of the two had been married about two years, when her husband con. ceived the idea of emigrating to Australia, He persuaded his only brother to accompany him. The latter had previously fallen in love with the youthful sister of his brother’s wife ; but as they were too young to marry, their friends opposed the union. The young couple, however, had the knot tied on the very day the brothers took their departure for the antipodes. The young men sailed for England, but after their departure from Montreal their wives have never heard from or of them, although every possible enquiry that could be made has been instituted. The ladies, who move in good society and are well provided for, have not abandoned the hope of seeing their long-lost husbands again. They have both had repeated and eligible offers of marriage; but they prefer to remain true and loyal to their first loves, although everyone but the deserted wives themselves think their husbands are lost to them for ever.
