Upon meeting Dr. Fletcher, tho Superin

and accordingly proceeded nt oncu to ns

accompanied by Jlrs. Talbot, proceeded to
lho homo-of Annie Holtgcn, In the south

Upon receipt nt tho Intelligence In this

ilso ot Terre Haute, left Indianapolis Sun
lay night at eleven o'clock for St, Louis,
ml arrived here this morning.
Miss Churchill tolls, how sho loft bomo ai
.follows t
" I know that father and mother would
be back from their drive nbout 7:110, and I
knew that In ordor to get away I wbuld
have to leave home by that tlino or a llttlo
before. When the hired girl camo In with
the baby, I went aver to Lucas avenuo to
look at the chimes to seo what the right
tlmo was. Tbo clocks In the house were not
running correctly and I wns afraid to trust
them. I knew I was noticed, and tho oidy
thing that has made me mad was tho story
that got out that I went over there to meet
that nasty Mr. Caldwell. Oh I I despised
him when I went to his school. I never
looked at a paper, und I was afraid to, but
lhat story got to my ears, and It fundo me
lo mad that I determined to write homo,
end that was tho reason I wrote Hut, to
continue my story, I Went back to
tho houso, put on my extra dross
nd put a veil over my face nud went
ut tho back wny. Thoro wns nobody in
tho nlloy when I got out at the gate, and I
turned east toward Ileaumont street. When
shout half way down tho nlley a colored
boy, who lived Just ncross the nlloy from
siir gnte, met mo, nnd my heart came up
Into my mouth. I was just sure be would
recognlzo mo, but 1 didn't, and I felt
treatly relloved when I got awny from
aim. When I got to Ilenumont street 1
.Tossed and went straight down the nlley
to Jefferson avenue. There I turned over
to Morgan street an S went down on the
louth side of it, for a number of blnclcs, I
ran't remember how many j from Morgnn
street I went south on Washington avenuo
end walked east nlong It to Four
teenth streot. Then I turned south
sgnln nnd walked on the west side
of thut park In front of tho First Presby
terian Church, and kept along that wny to
the next park, on what strrets 1 can't say,
I was really too much oxclted to remcmlier
the streets I was on. I know that on
Twelfth street I passed the north end of tha
Four Courts and dually reached tho depot
st tho north end. Then I turned east to iho
sentral entrance ot the Union Depot anil
went Into the ladles' sitting room where I
remained until they called out some train
I didn't know exactly what nnd I wont
gut and got on board. Ifcuess It wns about
the Inst train that loft tho depot. Tbo Con
ductor suspected me. I know ho did. Ho
laid he would like to see me In daylight so
that ho might bo able to tell It I was the
the girl I represented myself to be."
Dr. Fletcher, In tho course of a conversa
tion with regard to Miss Churchill soldi
"Sho camo here nbout the 3d or 4th of
September. She came to me and applied
for work. I asked her what she could do.
hind she answerod tbat she could do any-
tiling, i was nirucK iiy iter npperrnnce,
and concluded nt onco thnt she was getting
beneath her station and trnlr.lng In apply
ing for the work we could give her here, I
took up her hands ami looked nt them.
They showed no signs of work, nnd I snld
to her, ' My little lady, you have nover
done any work, you can't do our work.'
1 Ob, yes, I can,' she answered. She acted so
much like n lady and pleaded so hard for n
place that I finally saldt 'I have no plaro
lor yes, hut I will mako one.' so I placed
hor under Mrs. Frances A. Talbot, matron
of the Iron-room In the department for wo
men. I am glad that I did so, for he has
proved an exemplary girl, and 1 think al
most as much of tier as If she were one of
my own family. When she cnnp sbo hnd
the life at Mario Atotolnetteunder her arm,
and since she has been hero she has read
works on history nnd Grecian mythology,
Ob, I tell you, she was a rare chnracier
tmong asylum girls, one aslceii permission
to practice on tbo piano and I gave It to
ber and she delighted every one with
her
performances."

A Celebrated Caw.
Early In tho present century there re
sided in Paris a number of iHipecunlott
eentlomen, who styled themselves Jha
first society in Kurope, Among these
Englishmen was ono Edward Gibbon
Wnkellald, nophaw of tho colebratexl
I'riscllla Wakcllcld, whoso imrsory talee
nnd school-books wcro tho tfolfght of
children of that day. Edward was a
widower with several children, and
iu foni'MYhnt needy circumstances
lo support tho Ufa of elegant leisure
thnt ho wished. So It occurred to him
In clopo with an English heiress. Tho
Indy selected was a pupil at Mist
Doulby's famous seminary in Liverpool,
whoso father, William Turner, was a
woalllty Lancashire manufacturer.
Wnkolfold, nccompanlod by his shrewd
French valet, Mon. Thcvcnot, crossed
tho channel, and tho following scheme
wns selected ; Mr. Tnrnor had gone to
London en business, and Gibbon sent
lTsl6CVTIl71vMJIriftfnngrwnrclllt''
sent himself as tho servant of a pbysf
clan named Armstrong, with a nolo to
MiMi Doulby, purporting to have been
mitten by a physician who wne attend
ing Mrs. Tnrnor, of Shrlgloy I'ark, and
It ropresontod that Mrs. Turner,
being in f.rgcnt danger from a para
lytic ctroke, wished tb sen her only
child as soon as possible. The
patient's condition required Mio
Initucdl.ito return of Iter dnughlor, and
tho nolo renuestod MIssj Doulby to In
trust Miss l.llen Turner, ngod fifteen, to
tlio physician's savant, who would con
voy her to her mother nt tho greatest
posting spcoil. The loiter enjoined
Mlis Doalliy not lo nlann- tho young
lady by tolling her of Mrs. Turner's ill
ness. Tho scheme worked to perfection.
Tlio deferential French valet drovo Bt
onco to Manchester, whero tlio elegant
Wnkollold was met, Tho young and
unsophisticated school-girl was mont
agreeably impressed liv his musical
voice and polltoncso. It was his sad
duty to Udl tlio young lady that her
father was In great financial dl-atrww
caused by tho failure) of two largo c.
banks, nnd could only bo relieved by -his
little dai'glilnr'c comiillance with a
certain ngreomeiit, wldcli was nothing
else thnn hnr marriage with the hand
somo stronger. Tlioro seemed nothing
strnngo to tho child about this. Her
own oxiioricnca had taught tier that
Lancnslgrn mnniilacturers. often fall
suddenly from wealth. Tho last half
year ono of hor favorites was removed
from school by her father's failure.
I.lko a good girl, sho replied: "Dear
Mr. Wtikolkid, you nro very kind to
mn, and I think I could learn to
lovo you nnd makb you a good
wlfo, though I am very young;
but I mny not marry you
till I havo seen dear pnpa and learned
from Ids own lips what ho wishes me to
do." They wort' on their way to Scot
land for a spocdy innrrlago, and at Car
lisle would b? mot by bcr papa, who
would neenmpaby them to Gretna
Green. All night they droyo with
greatest speed, where they learned that
her father hnd been thrown into jail,
nud hor only wny to rescue him from
tho cruel position was at once to go to
Grctun Green and marry Mr. Wakefield.
At tho samo tlmo sho received a letter
.purporting to havo been writtenjby Mr.
Grimditch, her father's London solicit
or, urging hor immediate compliance
as tho only means to snvo her father.
Those woro proofs overwhelming, aid,
tho young girl consented, and they pro
ceeded to Grotna Green, and, with her
commit, the terrified little girl beonmo
Mrs. Wakellold. The witnesses were
William Graham, Postboy, and John
Lcnton. From Gretna Green tho adroit
rascal carried the girl to Calais, and at
ouco proceeded to opon negotiations
with Mr. Turner. Ills demands were
not exorbitant. Ho would lie satisfied
with nil annual nllowance suitable to
his wants to llvo l"i tho first society oi
Kuropo. It is grnti'ylng to know tltat
tho father did not consent, and that af
fairs wero managed so cleverly that Mr.
Wakollold was o'entualIy &entneed to

Enquirer.
A Very Self-Willed Hem.
Thoro Is an old nursery rhyme whleh
teaches that kindness anil patience aro
tlio best methods to pursue lp the case
of a "donkey that wouldn't go." Ah
English gentkman relates that he hnd a
horso tbit "wouldn't go," but when-be
came to try the patience remedy lw
found that the horse had a larger sup
ply of thnt virtue than he himself pos
sessed, which, as will presently be sees,
was considerable.
Tlio English gentleman's horse was a
eonfIrnietr'balker." One Saturday af
ternoon, when he was returning home
in his dog-cart, the horse balked, as it
had often done before, and )M HtaMer
thought that tliU timet he wenld try
what caJmnoM and tience would
do. Accordingly he sat still' in. tho r
dog-cart, and addressed the' Bslmal lu
soothing tones and kindly words; but
to no purpose, It wae exactly ten min
ute iast four on Saturday afternoon
whon the horse stopped, in tie mlddlu
of tho road.
Tlio afternoon wore away, the tun
sank below tho boriaoa, darkiMM set-Ik-d
down over the lntnloapv, and yet
tho mnn and horse remained to tight
out tho battle between obsUtiaoy ntid "
patience. Through the long night they
staid thcro, the whip remaining (juUrtly
hi tho socket, and when the sud arose
after his voyage around the world he
found tho contest still going on.
At six o'clock In the morning the
owner bade bis groom feteh a eart-rope
and tio It to tlie horse's font-leg; but
whon the groom did so, and milled with
all his might, tho only result was 'that
the horse stood with Erie fore-leg- attwk
out as If it were a bronze statoe- At)
seven o'clock the horse became jMnrfeet
ly furious, seising the shaft with kit
teeth, and shaking it, kicking and
stamping with rage the while. At half,
past seven the groete tried to Utmpt
mm with a meatniN of oat, bst the
nnxry beast would have none of It, aot
wlthstftmllng that it was twenty hours
since he had had a uwirthful of food or
a drop of water. . o
Tlien'hte master hd"ts C.fs him

having procured some tough shoot of

was conoerned. It was then twenty .-i
