HOBBIES 01? BISHOPS.
MANY OF THEM HAVE BECOMC
GREAT INSTRUMENTS FOR GOOD.

New York, Oct. 23. Bfekops have
hobbies? Why, of course; they arc
mortal. But they generally ndo them,
not to death, but to life. '
For instance, there is Bishop John E.
Vincent, of the Iethodist Episcopal
w k;.- w
'" h.pj' F
church. Grand and effective as his work
as a bishop may be, ho will go down to
the future, not as the great bishop, but
as the man who conceived and perfected
the Chautauqua movement. He well de
serves tho title which has been given
him, "Tho Nemesis of Illiteracy." Ele
vation to the bishopric has not weakened
his interest in tho Chautauqua work. He
Btill gives to it careful thought and di
rect personal oversight. What was the
father's hobby has become tho son's lifo
work and profession, and upon George
Vincent now rests much work that was
formerly done by Bishop Vincent; never
theless tho great perbonality that still
guides is John H. Vincent. Two months
of every year Bishop Vincent devotes to
tho annual assembly on tho Lake Chau
tauqua, and he i3 a frequent visitor at
fche many Chautauqua ;issemblies now
icattered throughout tho country.
No bishop of tho Protestant Episcopal
church has had a moro romantic and
thrilling career than Bishop H. B. Whip
ple, of Minnesota, whoso hobby for many
years was tho civilization and evangeli
sation of tho Indians of tho northwest.
In their interest ho has appeared before
congress, presidents and tho highest
councils of his own and other churches.
He looks back with horror upon the
Scenes that he witnessed when ho was
first sent to Minnesota in 18 j9. Then
there were 20,000 Indians in the state.
The funds supplied by tho government
were wasted or stolen by rascally agents.
Fire water flowed freely. Bad white
men woro ruining depraved Indians. To
right tho wrongs of the Indians, to
slovato and convert them, becaino the
passion and hobby of Bishop Whipple's
life, and as today, living amidst the
beautiful buildings of the educational
Institutions which make .Faribault,
Minn., so remarkable among western
towns, ho looks back over his career, ho
lays that no portion of it gives him more
pleasure in retrospection than that
struggle which has entitled him to the
Indian title of "Straight Tongue" or
"The Father-who-don't-lie," and enables
him to look out upon tho men whom he
met as savages now civilized. Christian
men, leading in business and movements
of all kinds.
Bishop Henry W. Warren, of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, while in
Wesleyan college developed great fond
ness for the natural sciences, which ho
taught for two years after leaving col
lege and before ho entered the ministry.
Through all the years that havo inter
rened between his first pastorate in 1855
md the present he has been a devout
ttudent of nature, finding in astronomy
his chief delight. The wealth of knowl
edge he has acquired ho has freely
proven into his sermons, some of which
have been great productions because of
their clear and powerful setting forth
of the wonders of tho universe. More
over, he has written two works, ad
mirably suited for popular reading and
study by those who whJi to know more
of astronemv p-i T-t spiin it apart
rrom Wie schools ana witn simple appa
ratus. The titles of those books are
"Studies ef tho Stara," and "Recrea
tions in Astronomy, with Directions for
Practical Experience in Telescopio
Work." Bishop "Warren resides in Den
ver, Colo. v

showed a love for historical investiga
tion. For two years of his life ho served
as professor of history in Hobart col
lege. In 18CS the general convention of
the Protestant Episcopal church appoint
ed him historiographer, and from that
date to this he has been prolific in tho
production of historical works which
are standard authorities. He has edited
tho journals of tho general conventions
of tho church, and has collated and writ
ten tho "Documentary History of the
Protestant Episcopal Church in the
United States of America," "Historical
Collections of the American Colonial
Church" and "The History of the Ameri
can Episcopal Church, 15S7-1883," be
sides very many pamplilets on historical
themes. Bishop Perry is a frequent con
tributor to tho leading journals and re
views of this country and England. As
a preacher ho is scholai ly and able. His
friendships with the gre.it men of the
Anglican and Continental churches aro
In Bishop John F.' Hurst the Metho
dist Episcopal church has a bishop who
sheds renown upon the church by his
scholarship and wide acquaintance with
the literature and men of all lands. For
I . .-v ffij)
many years his hobby has been his
library, which, even in that city of large
libraries, Washington, D. C, is re
markable for its eizo and value. Bishop
Hurst is a thorough German scholar
and ever keeps in touch with German
thought, and his library is rich in that
department. Ho has visited the far
east and made especial study of the re
ligions and philosophies of India, and
spared no expense in collecting along
that line. Early in the present year Tho
Independent published an article by
him in which ho showed most intimate
acquaintance with the literature of
modern Mexico, a country that most
people probably think of as having no
literature. Bishop Hurst's present hob
by is a national university in the city of
Washington, for which land has been
secured, subscriptions have begun to
flow in, and the lrindest words havo been
said. Bishop Hurst's scholarship, hi3
well known executive ability displayed
when president of Drew Theological
seminary, Ids wide acquaintance out
side of tho great demonination which ".?
back of him, make it seem that he is
pre-eminently fitted for the task of creat
ing such a university.
Bishop Thomas U. Dudley, of Ken
tuclcy, has for his hobby tho elevation,
education and evangelization of the ne
gro. Born and bred in the south, a rec
tor of wealthy churches in Maryland
and Kentucky, knowing perfectly the
condition of the negro as a slave and as
a freedman, impressed with a sense of
tho special duty which tho church owes
to the black race, Bishop Dudley has so
earnestly championed tho causo of the
negro in his own diocese, throughout
tho south and in tho great church coun
cils that he has come to be known as
"The Apostle to tho Negro." During
the winter of 1S80-90 he left his diocese

A Matron' Horriblo Confession Fight
for a Fortune A. Matrimonial Record.
I recollect a nurse named Ann
Who carried me about the grass,
And one fine da y a fine young man
Came up and kissed the pretty lass.
She did not make the least objection!
Thinks I, "Aha".
When I can talk 111 tell mamma."
And that's my earliest recollection.
A romance without a woman in it is like
a production of "Hamlet" with Hamlet
left out. Only one author of whom I have
heard has attempted to write a btory con-
taining no female characters.. He called
the book "Caleb "Williams." It was print
ed, but nowadays it is rarely to be found
on sale. The author is dead, and his name,
like his novel, is known to but few.
It is sad to think, however, that in the
romances of real life the part often played
by women is a Tragic one. Perhaps it is
because as the song has it,
She did not make the least objection
when the idol of her heart proposed, or set
her feet toward the downward way. Or
perhaps the man was not at fault at all.
At any rate, here arc the records of some
mysterious cases in each of which the chief
sufferer has been a wman.
One day in the latter part of September,
Richard L. Mabrey, of Doniphan, Mo., reg
istered at Hurst's hotel in St. Louis. He
was engaged to Miss Eflie Morgan, of
Rolla, Mo., and his visit to tho city by the
big bridge was for the purpose of securing
a fashionably made dress suit in which to
The wedding was to have taken place on
a Wednesday. The night before Mabrey
received a box containing his suit, entered
the elevator and went to his room. "When
he closed the door to his apartment he
passed from view of all who knew him.
No one saw him leave the hotel, but the
next day he was missing. He didn't ap
pear at Rolla, he didn't reach home and no
trace of his whereabouts could be obtained.
Large rewards were offered, and the police
went to work.
Various were the suggestions of the de
tectives. Accustomed to regard most men
as fools or knaves, they got up theories
based on the propositions "drunk," "tak-

ing in the town" and "run away with a
woman." They figured the last idea down
to what they considered a solution, and
boldly gave out the name of the female with
whom Mabrey had eloped. They said she
occupied tho room next the missing man's
at the hotel, that she left at the same time
he did, and that she lived in a southern
A vigorous protest followed.
The Illinois girl wrote a fiery letter from
her home, scotching the people who had
trifled with her good name and denying
any knowledge of Mabrey. Then the de
tectives tapped their think tanks again.
Indeed, they are still tapping, for at last
advices they hadn't found the Doniphan
man, and the maiden at Rolla remains dis
consolate. Another missing bridegroom is Frank
Manteuffel, who was to have led to the
altar Miss Annie Wilson, of Alameda, Cal.
He vanished as completely as a fog before
the rising sun. He had a good reputation,
plenty of money and fine piospects, so his
personal friends and the friends of the girl
who was to have been his wife hardly know
what to make of the affair.
The doubt in w hich those interested re
main is well expressed by a younger sister
of Miss Wilson. "Frank Manteuffel," said
she, "always spoke very hard of people
who acted scandalously in any way and
were brought before the public through
the papers. It was not so very long ago
that he called our attention to a case not
unlike this one, and explained with an em
phasis that struck me at the time as abso
lutely fierce, 'That fellow ought to be
killed for treating that young girl so.' And
now he has gone and done the very same
thing. Well, I can hardly think he has
run away. Something, sure, has happened
to him, and it will all be cleared up sooner

A greater tragedy than that of abandon
ment or loss of a lover is displayed in the
case of pretty Katie Hart, a 19-year-old
soubrette who had gained some fame on
the stage. One afternoon not long ago
she visited without demur a minor hotel
in New York citjf, accompanied by the prize
fighter Jack McAuhffe. The couple went
to a room. When Katie left it a few hours
later it was as a corpse. For a while dark
suspicions of murder prevailed, but an
autopsy showed that she had died of heart
The pugilist promptly asserted that she
was his wife and that they had been mar
ried six months. Be that as it may, the
poor girl received all mortuary honors, and
the coffin conUuning her remains was low

plate engraved "Mrs,. John AIcAuIuTe."

answertfor the awful crime of murder.
A strange tragedy of domestic life was
brought to light not long ago during a
will contest at Mount Holly, N. J. The
estate in question was that of Hezekiah B.
Smith, a millionaire manufacturer and ex
member of congress. Smith lived foryears
in Vermont, but on removing to New
Jersey espoused Agnes Gilkerson, to whom
he left a large property. After his death
Mrs. Evaline V. Smith, of Woodstock, Vt.,
appeared and claimed the estate on "behalf
of herself and children. Counsel took a
sensational method to establish the
fact that Mr. Smith had recognized
the eldest daughter, now Mrs. Ella A.
Fuller, as his child. They produced the
police court records of Philadelphia for
December, 1877, to show that in that month
EUa was arrested for pocket picking, and
that the deceased had presumably declared
her to be his Slaughter, and, at any rate,
used his money and influence to get her
out of the scrape. It was a big price to
pay this sacrifice of personal reputation
to better the chance of getting a share
even of a million in cold cash.

Indecent Theatrical Posters.
Paterson, X. J., desires the reputation of
a strictly moral town. The mayor recently
directed the chief of police to tear down or
deface all theatrical posters of an indecent
character. This action was brought about
by the indignation expressed by many of
the leading citizens, including a number of
ministers. Rev. Dean McNulty, of St.
John's Catholic church, was one of the
first to begin the crusade. He preached a
sermon in which he bitterly denonnced the
objectionable theatrical posters as being an
insult to respectable citizens and likely to
corrupt the youthful mind.

Fifth The fifth is the most wonderful
of the seven natural curiosities of the

front of the palace erected in its honor.
It is an irregular cube of great bulk. It
appears to be resting on the ground, free
from supports on all sides, but, strange
to say, two men at opposite ends of a
rope may pass it under the stone without
encountering any obstacle whatever!
The sixth wonder is the "hot stone,"
which from remote age3 has laid glow

Tho seventh and last Corean wonder is
a drop of the sweat of Buddha. For
thirty paces around the large temple in
which it is enshrined not a blade of grass

Argentine Republic was three years ago,
at the time of his election, a poor lawyer,

This speaks well for the perquisites of
a good office, but it is true of every

Well, it is Senor Don Miguel Juarez
He now has 6,000,000 in London, or
is currently believed to have, and it is
nothing more than reasonable, for it is
known that the Bueno3 Ayres Water
Works company, an English syndicate,
paid him an immense sum for the privi

many. He also owns a splendid palace
in Buenos Ayres and a large and well
