Mankato, Minn., Oct. 24. - Mankato social circles are agitated with a sensation this morning which is on everybody's tongue. It is no less than the secret marriage of Harry W. Stewart, whose notoriety is not limited to Mankato, and Miss Marie, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. Mickelson. The marriage occurred at Hudson, Wis., Sunday, Oct. 4, but the bride did not inform her parents of the occurrence until Saturday night, when she asked her parents' forgiveness. She was supposed to be visiting friends at St. Peter the day of the wedding.

Yesterday the couple left on a southbound train, not knowing where their future home would be, but not intending to return to Mankato. Stewart is a well-kept man of fashionable and engaging appearance. His first wife was granted a divorce from him a month ago. The bride is a graduate of the high school, has noted elocutionary accomplishments, and is a charming young lady. Her father is a leading merchant tailor, and she has held the position of cashier in a large local business house, which received its first notice of her departure this morning.

Her parents are heart-broken over the affair, as they had no intimation of their daughter's affection for Stewart, whom they do not approve of as a son-in-law.
