To Be Spanked If He Weds.

Father Gives Notice to All Girls That His Boy's Engagement Is Off.

Special to The New York Times.

Press cutting

TRENTON, Aug. 26. -- Following a published notice of the coming marriage of Miss Nellie Sheller to Leon Embley, the father of Embley published this notice to-day:


The wedding of Leon Embley will be postponed until he arrives at the age of twenty-one, as he is now only in his seventeenth year. His father positively notifies any girl that he refuses to give his consent.


A call at the house of Mrs. Emma Hanlon, the stepmother of Miss Sheller, revealed the fact that the elder lady had refused to permit Embley to enter the house, and while Miss Sheller had engaged herself to Embley she had not authorized the announcement of their coming marriage.

Embley, senior, says that should his son get married he would spank him and put him to bed. The young man remains in his room and refuses to be comforted.
