A Lothario in Trouble.
Something more than a ripple of ex

morning, when it became kuown that
a serious misadventure had last night
befallen a certain knight of the club in
this city, an officer of the police force.
It seems tnat this gay Adonis had be

certain lady, the wife of an ex-member
of the force, against whose fair fame
by the way, we havo never heard a
whisper of reproach. The advances
made by him were odious to the lady.

was determined upon Yesterday after
noon the gay policeman sent word to
the lady that be wonld call to see her
last night and thereupon she confided
this fact to her sister who, in turn, in
formed her husband of it. This latter
then came down town and bought two
cowhides and gaye then to his wife for
use. Last night the Lothario called and
was oolitely received, and when asked
by the lady ot the house what ho wish

his arms around her and endeayoring to
kiss her. She managed, however, to
extricate herself from his
embrace and ran to the door
of an inner room, i which she
opened and admitted her sister. This
latter was provided with two whips
and she handed one of them to her
sister, when the two infuriated women
turned upon tho offender .and lashed
him severely. It is said that they
whipped him until their arms ached
and that he had to take it all . When
