A Boston dispatch says: Mr. H. F. Har- mon, a well-known flour merchant of this city, is a maternal undo of Miss Frankie Polsom, who is believed to be the bride-elect of President Cleveland. A correspondent asked him If there is any doubt that Presidont Cleveland is going to marry Miss Folsom. \Frankly speaking,\ said he, \there is none. It was not our intention to announce the engagement until somo time boiore the wedding, but unfortunately it was made pub- lic b y a breach of confidence on the part o£ friends in Buffalo. I have just been writing a letter to Miss Frankie,\ he added. \It is upw nearly time for her to bo preparing to return home. \Do you suppose she has heard of the rumors in circulation on this side the At- lantic?\ \I have no doubt she has learned some- thing. I was engaged in writing her, as you entered, that the cat was out of the bag, and giving her a little of the gossip she may ex- pect, to hear on returning home. We fre- quently receive letters from her about tho trip. She writes often and her letters are ' particularly bright. She has a brilliant, de- scriptive style and is an enthusiastic ob- server. Tho rumor that tho expenses of her European trip were paid by Mr. Cleveland has no foundation in truth, and I do not see how it ever originated. \It was Miss Folsom's intention to an- nounce the engagement in due time before the wedding, but to her, as well as the entire family, the premature statements concerning it are a great surprise. As I have said, there were but a few let into the secret. At last ac- counts Miss Folsom was enjoying the best of health. She enjoyed the visit to Italy very much, the only drawback being her mother's illness in Genoa, where she was taken down withafever. Miss Folsom's acauaintance with President Cleveland forms a romantic story. \Frankie a t a very.early age gave promise of great beauty. She was loved by every one who knew her. She was frank in manner, warm hearted and very love- ly. When scarcely knoe high she was particularly friendly to 'Uncle Cleve,' as she . ^(called him, and in after years held him as one of her dearest friends and ndvisers. Then came he/'father's death with its attendant changes* I have no doubt if he had lived he would have been much gratified at the mar- - ' -WB'ouftfSSfrebMShtclevelaudi'onnataffe his matrimonial attentions?'' Was asked. \C can scarcely answer that,\ was there- ply. \He was very friendly disposed toward Miss Folsom from the time she was a child; but about three yearsago his attentions com- menced to assume a more serious aspect. Al- though very reserved in manner, it was evi- dent he now cared far more for the woman than ho had in former years for the child. When Miss Folsom and her mother visited the White House last year there was consid- erable talk about a possible engagement, but not until the announcement of the marriage was recently ma le was any further report in circulation. I think I may safely say you can travel a good many miles and see a great many people before you will find a young lady of greater beauty and accomplishments than Miss Folsom. I have no doubt it will be very embarrassing for her to know of the thousand rumors that .are circulated about her, especially if she happens to see any of the newspaper cuts that have been printed over her name.\ MOONSHINEES' WOKE. A Marshal Attacked—Two Men Killed—Pour Mortally Wounded. A dispatch from Manchester, Tenn., gives details of a bloody tragedy enacted there shortly after midnight the other morning, in which United States Deputy Marshal Webb Pin-ion, and a moonshiner named Clark were,.killed and three other moonshiners fatally wounded.
