A PAROCHIAL ROMANCE. At a recent meeting of the Holborn Board of Guardians, the Clerk reported that a local school- master had been suianaoned before the Clerken- well magistrates, and ordered to pay 9s. 4d. in respect of his lunatic wife. The ClerkenWell out-relief committee recommended that the hus- band be allowed to appeal against this decision, because the circumstances were of an extraor- dinary character. Mr. Scheil said he had inves- tigated the matter, and ascertained that the schoolmaster married an actress in Switzer- land when visiting there some eight years ago. After eleven months of married life, the wife absconded to America, and was not heard of for seven years. She, however, became a pauper lunatic in America, and the authorities there paid her passage to her native village in Switzerland; but it happened that, in passing through London on her way to Switzerland, she was met by a man who knew both her and her husband. This friend took her to his house but when he found she was ipsane, he took her to the Holborn Work- house. Here it was discovered who her husband was, and ne was sent for. He did not at first recoguiso her after so long an absence, but at length admitted ilj, and was ordered by the magistrate to pay as stated.âSeveral members- agreed that the order against the schoolmaster should be reduced, and the recommendation of the committee was adopted.
