With pany other costly thing.

result waa au engagement of marriage,
though ibe partie had never yet met.
After the robbery, and on the arrival of
thej stage in Grass Valley, ihe prospective
bride and groom met, and the wedding
took place. Both were hippy, and so
continued until next morning,
bride claimed, that she was crazy, an
knew nothing whatever of the marriage;
that all was oblivion to her after the rob
bery, except that she had dreamed in the
night that she was carried off by the rob
bers. Her manner was excited; one
minute she was in tears and another in
smiles. Preacher and neighbors were
called in, and all thought she must be
crazy, but in her more lucid moments she
intimated that the miner was i:notso well
fixed as she expected to find him." All
agreed that under the circumstances it
would be well if the marriage could be
annulled, but how to do this was the
question. Penning tbe discussion, the
young lady packed up her Saratoga and
left Grass Valley for her home. The im
