While noi good-looking, strictly speaking, Miss Hart has a fascmating inanner that makes her quite a successful saleswoman, but her greatest succtss is in cnpturingtbe hearts of the sex. As she came in contact with men every day her cirele of acquaiutance v.-as very lorge. She had no use for old men, however, for young men with plenty of inoney found most favor in her eyes. Directly after marriage Miss Hart would ask her husband for $100, saying her mother was sick and needed money. Of course, a newly-married husband could not refuse, and the cash was forthcoming. This would be the last seen of the cash or bride. In this way she victimized many men. John Evans arrived and is looking for her. He said he met her about six weeks ago and was so smitten with her charms that he proposed. She accepted him. They had not been married two days before she asked bim for a loan of some money to send her sick mother. He gave her Í350, and that was the last seen of her.

He, too, gave the woman f200 to send home, but never saw anything of her after he gave her the cash. Phineo has since lenrned that there are several other men who married the woman md are now looking for her for their mouey. Miss Hart was here in the early part of the week, but her whereabouts is now unknown.
