A handsome young lady, well known in the town of Manheim. N. Y., recently inserted an advertisement in a Western matrimonial paper for a husband. It was answered by a Westerner, who enclosed a photo, in which he appeared to be a good-looking young fellow. The Westerner arrived in town a few days ago, but to the surprise of the young lady, instead of the handsome young portrayed in the photograph, a typical Western cowboy appeared before her. It appears that the photo he had sent to the young lady had been taken some years ago, long before he became a cowboy. The maiden is as yet undecided as to whether to accept the Westerner or not.
