The Catskill Elopement. The Hudson Star of Saturday says:
“Our readers will be surprised, as we were, to learn that Miss Sophia Finney (if indeed she can any longer be called so) of Catskill, is again living with Konold, the German music teacher, with whom she eloped to Montreal. Mrs. Konold proper recently returned from that place, whither she had gone at her recreant husband’s request, having obtained her other child, which he cruelly carried away with him at the time of leaving. She is now living in this vicinity. We are informed that Miss Finney returned to Montreal soon after the foolish errand on which she suffered herself to be sent to this city – and pending which Mrs. Konold administered to her such a befitting testimonial of her indication – arriving there but a short time subsequently to Mrs. K. – The two are even said to have confronted each other there under circumstances so anomalous and withal so improbable that we refrain from giving publicity o the report. There seems to be no dispute however that the matter has been measurably adjusted, and that the girl remains with Konold, the graceless scamp, while his lawful wife is endeavoring to maintain the 2 children at her home in this city.
