CONCERNING HARRY MARKS.
tiketcb. of the Blarvolons Career or a
New Yoek, Jan. 1. A libel suit re
cently tried in London has beep ttio
means of drawing public attention on
both rides of the Atlantio to the remark
able history of a man -who less than n
dozen years ago was a newspaper re
porter in Slew York, withont means be
yond his earnings with his pen, and who
is now enormonsly wealthy and in inti
mate business relations with the house
of Eothschild. This man is Harry U.
Mr. Marks' father is known always
as Rabbi Professor Marks, "both, titles
being used in speaking of him. Ho is
the leading rabbi of London and offici
ates in the Berkeley Street synagogue,
and is professor of oriental languages
in the University college of London.
Among his congregation are the Roths
childs and the Montefiores, as well as
many of the beat known Hebrews of the
Reformed church in London. Tne raDDi
also enjoys the curious distinction of
having been elected a vestryman of St.
Paucras, being the only Jew who holds
such an office in England.
Of his sons, one is an officer in tho
Forty-Becond Highlanders, commonly
called the "Black "Watch." Ono is an
artist, and was the first person born,
deaf and dumb ever taught to speak.
One is a well known editor in New York,
and another is a wanderer concerning
whom little is known. Harry H. Marks
came to America in 1870, when he lacked
several years of having attained his ma
jority. He first wont to Texas, and was
employed on some newspaper there for
a Bhort time. Then, going to New Or
leans, lie obtained a situation on The
Picayune, of that city, but in 1873 ho
came to New York, where He soon made
his mark as a capable reporter.
He wrote for Tho Sun and The Tribune,
and for four or five years was on tho
staff of The World under William Henry
Hurlbert, and was also for a timo the
Nov? York correspondent of Tho Chi
Among other work ho did editorials
for The Reformer and Jewish Times, a
small weekly paper owned by a Mr.
Koppel, who died in July, 1878. After
his death Marks purchased the paper
from Koppel's widow, and from tho ac
quaintance wliich began in business be
tween him and the widow sprang up an
intimacy which led to the libel suit
mentioned above. Tee rupture of their
relations led to the death of The Re
former, and Marks, turning his atten
tion to Wall street, started The Finan
cial and Mining News, and became a
menjber of the old mining board and of
the i oil exchange. Ho made and lost
Honio money, and in 1883 he returned to
Ho was withont money, but ho ac
quired a capital of experience which he
immediately proceeded to utilize. Ho
therefore projected a paper to bo called
'.The Financial News, and prepared for
the issue of the first number. There
'was a trifling difficulty in his way, for
ho had neither money nor credit with
which to get the papers from tho printer,
and the expedient he adopted wis
characteristic of tho man. A friend of
his in New York who had been associ
ated with him in various enterprises,
xnd who was then as poor as Marks him
self, had a good mime and was known
in London almost as well as in New
York. Marks made a draft on him for
50 and got it cashed, cabling over to his
friend that he had done so, and that ho
would "take care of the draft" when it
should coino back It did go back and
he redeemed it, but in tho mean timo ho
had issued his paper and turned his
Fijoin thon till now his career has
been one of phenomenal success. The
papifer proved a veritable gold mine, and
he xemained chief owner of it. Col. Mc
Mijirdo, of Delago bay fame, became in
terested with him and invested $5,000 in
thi'o paper. When, a few years later, Mc
Muirdo died leaving an enormous estate
ihx tangled litigation, tho only asset
nvhich his widow found available was
' this interest in The Financial News, and
this sho sold to Marks for $90,000 in
, w-h. The paper was then paying an
nual dividends of 50 per cent, in scrip
, and 40 per cent, in cash.
Marks wanted another newspaper, so
he bought The Evening News and Post,
the organ of tho leaders of tho Conserva
tive party. He pnt his old managing edi
tor, J. H.Copleston, formorly of Tho New
York World, in charge, and is still run
ning the two dailies. He wanted a town
house, and he bought Loudoun Hall, a
palatial residence, built by a Bond street
money lender at a cost of $500,000. Ho
bought pictures on which ho carries an
insurance of $100,000. He set up a rac
ing stable, and on one horse alone has
won more than his entiro stables cost
him. He bought a fine estate at Broad
stairs, near Ramsgato. and built a coun
try house to suit himself, investing
$250,000 m this purchase.
He had political aspirations, and got
hiinself elected a member of the London
county council, which is a body somo
what re hhng the New York board
of aldermen in its scope, but which has
ore power. He proved a "kicker,"
and speedily showed such executive
ability that he was put on nearly all the
committees, and such eloquence as to
attract tho notice of the Conservative
leaders, who put him up for parliament.
He married and has two children, a
boy and a girL He enjoys, it is said, an
inooino of $300,000 a year. His carriage
stops daily in front of Baron Rothschild's
office, and he is closeted with the great
TOagnate while other magnates wait out
wde. Ho seemed to have reached an al
most unassailable position of prosperity,
when an enemy published a story of his
relations with Mrs. .Koppel, accusing him
of having betxayed;rbbbed and deserted
her. He brought a suit for libel, and this
is the case that has excited so much com
ment. Tho case was decided against
Mr. Marks, and his ,mauy enemies pre
dict a fall ais rapid as ln& n&a was, but
those- of us who remember what manner
of man he was in New York look for
tome very interesting fighting.

A Black 'Female Samson.
Freedman's Town, a suburb of Hous
ton, Tex., boasts of a female Samson,
who has repeatedly proven herself a
match for any three men that have pitted
their united strength, and who a few
nights ago successfully routed Officer
John Baxter and three of his assistants,
all men of fine physique. The woman
is a negress, as black as night and of a
stature slightly above average, but mag
nificently built and extraordinarily ac
tive. Her grip was such that she was
able to break two of the bones of the
hand of the woman with whom she had
a fracas recently, and it was on the po
lice attempting to arrest her that she not
only was able to prevent them putting
tho handcuffs on her, but, taking the
officer and his posse one by one, flung
them out of the house and closed and
locked the door.
Baxter, in particular, is accounted a
man of unusual strength, and is of large
build, but he says his muscles were as a
child's when compared with those of the
black Amazon. The woman, whoso
name is Caroline JenHns, is about 30
years old, and is the mother of seven
children. She has been Eeen to pick up
a barrel of floor and carry it a distance
of several yards without appearing to
overtax herself, and when tested was
found to be able to break with ease a
new grass rope an inch in diameter.
Since her exploit with the police it is
said that a party of gentlemen propose
traveling with her, if she will go, and
give exhilA-ons of her strength, which
is to be ascribed to no electrical or mag
netic process, but to her muscular de
velopment alone. St. Louis Globe-Dem-ocrct.

He then went to Kankakee, Ills., Sept. 27,
and covered a mile in 2.13. Two days later
he tried again on the same track, getting a
record of 2.11H- At Terre Haute, Ind.,
Oct. 9, his time was 2.11, and at Cam
bridge City, Ind., Oct. 12, he came under
the wire with the time of 2:10? to his
credit. His half mile record of 1:03 is only
one second behind that of Maud S., and
his mile lacks but two seconds of equaling
her time. Nelson now holds the worlds
stallion trotting record. He is a bay horse,
with black points, and was sired by Young
Rolfe over eight years ago. Ho weighs
1,050 pounds and stands about 10 hands
According to Mr. Nelson's alleged con

GIRLS AWAY FROM HOME.
Valnablo Succestloa to ToanR "Women
"Who Are Obliged to Travel.
The girl who is going away from horns
quite by herself, and who will have to travel
for savaral days and nights on the cars,
who will be at n strange hotel by herself,
wants a littlo advico about what to do.
Her number may ba many, so I prefer to
tell her in this little paragraph: In buying
her ticket for the trip she also buys a ticket
for her sleeper, and the railway official will
arrange that if she does not get the entiro
section the other birth is also occupied by
a lady. When she wishes to go to bed th
porter, at her request, will arrango the
berth for her, and then oat of tho small
sschel that she has provided she will tako
the dark flannel or dcl&lne dressing gown
in which she intends to sleep, and go to the
VHet room and put this on. Her clothei
are hung by the berth, and while- she is ad
vised to remove her dns3, skirt and corsets
and her shoes, it will be vrwer to retain
some of her underwear and her stocking,
not only because of the draught, but Uxjause
of tho facility of getting into tilings tho
next morning. Get up early and go to tha
toilet room, but do not monopolize it far
When you reach a strange city get into
the stago that belongs to tho hotel to whiah
j ou wish to go, get out At the ladies' en
trance, go into the reception room and vav
that you wish some ono pent- from the of
fice to you. Tell whoever come3 exactly
what kind of a room you want, and auk th
price of it. Givo him your name to regis
ter, and romember while you Are alone in
a public house it is not vriso to dress in any
except a quiet way. No trouble about or
dering your meals should bo experienced,
as the bill of fare 6hows exactly what it
served, and jou can take your choke.
As to "tipping," you will certainty give
a small tip to the porter ho strap and
locks your trunks fur you, and to any bell
