CARDIFF ROMANCE. MAN WHO TRAVELLED 8,000 MILES IN BASKET BED. A journey of 8,000 miles in a. basket bed ended at Roselawn, Indiana, on January 11, when C. C. Smith, a mining engineer, of Natal, South Africa, arrived at the home of his parents. He suffered a broken back in a mine accident (says an American contemporary), and is paralysed from the waist down; but, nevertheless, will wed Miss Amy Palmer, an English nurse, who cared for him in a hospital in Cardiff (Wales), and helped to bring him home. Smith and a companion were repair- ing machinery in the South Africa workings. A huge rock fell, killing his companion. At Smith's request, the company started him home, ap- propriating 25,000 dollars for the sur- gical and ?other expenses of the trip. The journey was broken at Cardiff, so that the injured man might receive special medical attention, and it was there that he met Miss Palmer. Be- caUSe of the size of the basket in which Smith travelled it was necessary to take out the windows of a railroad soach to get him aboard the train. The above story, reported in an American paper, is very pretty, path- etic, and romantic. If, however, the Cardiff referred to is the Metropolis j of Wales, and not the little place of the same name across the herring pond a veil of doubt must be drawn over it, says the "Western Mail." In- { quiries have failed to elicit any clue to the identity of Miss Amy Palmer | in Cardiff (Wales). But we give the story, nevertheless, for the benefit of those' w;ho can digest it.
