near, when she pounced upon sister
Johnson and began to pull at her hair.
Sister Johnson returned the compli

LOST HER FAI^E TEETH.
A lady dressed in very deep mourning
waited through the session in Justice
Scully's court yesterday morning, and
then followed him into his private
office. The lady was Mrs. Mary Thomp
son, of No. 125 N. Green St. and she
wanted a warrant for the arrest of Mrs.
Kate Little, who went off with her set
of false teeth. Mrs. Thompson as is
her custom, went to church last Sunday
evening, and on her return a woman
met her who told a most doleful tale
of poverty. In the kindness of her
heart Mrs. Thompson invited the woman
home with her to sleep. She did not
know it was Kate Little, the mother of
Tommy Fresh, a well known character
of the West side. I the morning she
was gone when Mrs. Thompson awoke
and so was the set of teeth. Mrs Thomp
son has eaten her meals since without
teeth. Tuesday afternoon she got a
note from No. 116 South Jefferson street
in which the writer offered, to return
the teeth for $2 with this note she called
at the station.
"You must have some difficulty in
eating your food said Justice Scully."
Oh, no, your honor it's but little I
care for the eating. Its only for the
looks. You see it was a good set and it
fitted me beautifully. A warrant was
made out for the arrest of Kate Little.
The Romantic Career of Ameri

Truth Stranger than Fiction.
The signal triumph of Mies Hatcher at
Frieberg's Opera House Monday eve
ning has caused a desire upon the part
of the public to know more of the lady's
early history, and to gratify this very
natural curiosity the APPEAL has made
some investigations with following re
sults. Miss Hatcher's right name is
Ogarita Honrodez. She waa borrfon the,
Gulf of Mexico some 24 years ago. Her
father was Alfonso Honrodez, a native
of Sonora, Mexico her mother being
the only daughter of Seguoia a noted
Indian chief. The young Mexican met
the mother of Ogarita while on a hunt
ing expedition in the mountains of Mexi
co, and falling desperately in love with
her wooed and won her. His father a
wealthy rancbero persistently refused
to condone his son's offense, and with
the impetuousness peculiar to his race
disinherited him. Alfonso leaving his
young wife in the charge of a trusted
peon, came to the United States, en
listed in the army and soon rose to the
rank of Captain in a New York Volun
teer Regiment. was fatally wounded
in an engagement. The sad tidings
were telegraphed to his wife, who has
tened to her husband taking a Gulf boat.
It was during this vogage that Ogarita
was born. Arriving at New7
poor lady learned that her husband had
died only a few hours before herttrrival,
murmuring with his last breath his ab
sent wife's name. This cruel blow was
too much and the fragile forest flower
drooped and died leaving Ogarita a
legacy to the world. Kind strangers
cared for the little aif. She was taken
to Natchez, Jiliss and placed charge
of Mrs. Laura Clark, a stewardess on a
river boat who in turn gave her to Mrs.
Sarah Slaughter a Colored lady living
in Louisville, Ky.. who reared her and
gave her the rudiments of an education.
Despite all home comforts, Ogarita ever
exhibited her Indian blood in her inor
dinate desire to roam. She was of a
restless, nervous temperament never
happier than when wandering through
the woods with the birds and flowers
for her sole companions. At the age of
18 Ogarita determined to carry into
practice her great longing for the drama,
but not having the funds requisite to
pursue her studies she was compelled
to rely upon her own industry. It was
difficult to find a manager who pos
sessed sufficient faith in the young girl
to hazzard pecuniary success on her.
At last however she found one in an im
pecuneous nervy manager named Charles
B. Steers. Her debut was an ovation.
The press and public inaorses her as an
histrionic wonder. Miss Hateher has
written a drama "Lazette" which is
pronounced a perfect gem. When
quite a child tiring of home lL"e Ogaiita
ran away from Mrs. Slaughter and went
to live with Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Law
son now residing at 1325 magazine street
Louisville. Then she fell in love with
one Carrol and eloped with him.
Concluding that she had made a
mistake she returned to her guardian.
Some years after she married
a Mr. Hatcher by /whom she
has one child a sweet little
girl of four summers Miss Hatcher
is a lady of a tender affectionate disposi
tion and could not live happily with her
indifferent husbands. She is of mixed
blood, Mexican Indian aud Negro, with

I have heen asked hy a prominent
man of this city if I believed in having
Colored churches, schools, etc. I do,
especially churches, I believe in us
having most everything that others
have, as a race, except jails and peni
tentiaries of which the doors are kept
ajar inviting all the Colored patronage
that is possible for them to secure,
especially in the Southern States, at
those we are made welcome. I believe
in us having our various branches of in
dustries and if possible be made second
to none, and if we have churches it is
our duty to first support and give our
influence to them and then to our white
neighbors. I they be newspapers as
sist and support them. It matters not
what enterprise you enter it is our duty
to assist you, we have many reasona for
saying this. We have here anew church
well equipped with an int-lligent minis
ter and officers that are endowed with
business tact an i zeal, an edifice that
we can well be proud of. We also have
church going people here who have
abilities and stand high in the esteem of
the many people of Minneapolis and
who if they would only put their should
era to the wheel or lend a helping hand
have influence to make a successful
