A marriage romance that twentyfour years ago claimed a very large share of public attention is recalled by the engagement of the Hon. Charles Diehard Moles worth, younger brother of Viscount Molesworth, to Miss Elizabeth Gladys Eangworthy. The prospective bride is the daughter of that Mrs Eangworthy, who, after being married in France, was: sent home by her husband from Buenos 'Ayres with only a few bank notes to keep her and her child. Her case was taken up by Mr Stead, who influenced public opinion against the husband in a vigorous pamphlet. The result was a storm of indignation against the husband which was only appeased when Mrs Eangworthy was awarded dainages to the amount of twenty thousand pounds by the court, which also 'secured an annuity to the child. Mr and Mrs Langworthy subsequently became reconconciled, and lived together in Paris, and when she died the husband ended his life, declaring that he could not bear to survive the woman he had wronged. Archibald Stewart died at Henton, near Glasgow, on Sept 29th, aged 102. His father died at 86, his grandmother 101, and two aunts at 101 and 102 respectively. DON’T BE BEHIND THE TIMES ! “Hondai-Lanka” is now the fashionable Tea, because it pleases the fastidious.
