	     Allie s second Marriage.
tion.    Hullo, Allie!  said Watson, one day,
when she made her appearance at the  Picayune 
office, with Coville,  how are you?        Mrs. Co-
ville, if you please!  she responded.        She des-
pised Coville, marrying him only that she might
be kept.    He was an ignorant little cub but a
good dentist.     His family was wroth at the
acquisition, but helped him, and for a year or
two, I fancy, Allie s life may have been less raf-
fish than heretofore.        
In instincts she was thoroughly Bohemian.
Haney has told me of her coming into the
 Picayune  with some money in her hand   two or
three bills   the Sunday papers having unexpectedly
paid up   when she told Glover that if he d
visit her that evening, she d give him one of the
best oyster stews or  roasts  that could be had in
New York City.         Glover, with a delighted face,
agreed.       I remember her inviting me to visit
her, more than once, but I never went.      Banks
did, but for a very few times, his bawling
tavern talk and Satyr-gallantry displeased
the women.   Allie must now, as Mrs. Eytinge,
be better off for material comforts than ever before
in her life; for she and her sister led but mise-
rable lives:    They didn t make it Pay,  depones
Watson    and they might have done so!   Glover
