The Raleigh correspondence of
this morning's Charlotte Observer
appeared the following : '
Casusal mention was made the
other day of the fact that a yonng
lady of this city who at Salisbury
last year married a young man on
only three days' acquaintance, had
returned to her parents. The man
is in jail in Iowa, charged with horse
stealing. He was here and aided in
conducting seryices in a Methodist
church. A pastor of anotner
church tells me he had information
which led him to steer clear of ihe
young mav and alleged preacher.
The latter is said to have no less
than three wives. Great sympathy
is expressed for the young woman
who was so shamefully deceived by
While no names are given the peo
pie oi Salisbury will readily recall
the circumstances of the marriage.
Some time in last February, about
the first of the month, a man came
here in the interest of the Encylo-
peadia Britannica, whieb was being
sold by the Charlotte Observer. He
gave bis name as H W S Burton,
and said be was a minister of the
Christian church and had been com
pelled to give np preaching in Main
because of poor health. He was a
good talker, with the manner and
appearance of a gentleman, and was
kindly reated by our people. While
here he preached in the Baptist
church several times, once or more
in the Presbyterian church and ad
dressed the Y. M. C. A.

by Rey. C B King, pastor of the
Lutheran church. The mrrriage oc
curred just ten days after they were
There were rumors abont Burton
shortly after his marriage, but
nothing definite was brought out ex
cept that he was in financial trouble.
When be left here the matter was
forgotten and was thought of by
very few people.
The Herald showed the aboye to
Rey. N S Jones and asked if he had
any knowledge of it. From him we
learned that Mrs. Burton was with
her parents in Raleigh, having gone
there from some town in Illinois,
where Burton was nnder arrest. The
cautes leading to the arrest were
Burton, while in St. Louis, made a
contract with a sewing machine
company, the Singer, it is believed,
and went into Illinois to sell the
machines. By representations made
to a liveryman at the town in hich
he first stopped be purchased a pair
of horses, giving a mortgage on the
team and machine he had. Later
he borrowed some money from the
sheriff of the county and gaye an-,

was to canyasa the town and conn

another town, where be passed nnder

bad been duped had Burton followed
and he was arrested and carried back
to the scene of his swindling.

told to come back home, which she
did. The trial of Barton was to
haye taken place last week, but
