of Mrs. Cornelius Vantlerbilt. Mr. Gill
yesterday gave Lawyer Knell, of this
town, a signed statement withdrawing the
charges madoby him against his wife.
The paper Is dalitl AugnstSX, and the

never come to trial. What Mrs. Gill will
do In the matter Is not known.
Lawyer Y. 8. KtJlogg, of this town,
counsel for Mr. Gill, says he has-received
letter from bis client hinting at a settle

any one ut the statement givcu by Mr. Gill

Ckmmlsslnner nf Patents Seymour has
recently had published an intcn-llng list
of women inventors, their Inventions, and
the dale when letters patent were issued.
This 'list should be an effectual argument
againit the assertion that woman Is non
ingenious in mechanical construction.
The scope of Invention embraces pretty
much everything under the sun. Tlioso
things with which women are most familiar
natuarlly preponderate, but there seems to
have been no "pent-up IJtica," and thr
"whole bouudlcu realm'-' of imentive

"for twemy-six ears exercised autocratic

Tho first ice-cream frecier was pat

185T for Elisa Alexander, of New York
City, to nuke an improvement to the sew

tricks ot that marrellour plcrc ot mechan

credit and emoluments that number 80,

Of Improvements in corsets there Is prac
tically no end, and the record ot the busi
ness day of February 2G, 1895, closes
with No. G34.TCU, issued to Sarah J. Rott,
New Haven, Conn., for a '"ockirg t'evlce
for fastening corsets." The history of
the first 100 years of the Patent Orflce
shows that 5.000 women received patents
for inventions, many of them in use and
bringing in fair royalties.
On July IT, 1888, Miriam E. Benjamin,
of Washington, D. C, leceivcd her final
papers for a gong and signal chair for ho
tels. This system has been placed ou the
Senate chamber chairs, and will 1m- used
for the flrsi time at the coming meeting of
Congress. This Is the only colored womaa
inventor known. She is a teacher in the
Washington schools, and of marked abil
ity. From this showing the women of the
country can take heart of grace, and if
anything more were needed to make them
"stand upon their dignity" these 6,000
letters patent would be substantial enough.
It Is the first time In the bUtnry ot the
Patent Office that a classified list ot
women inventors has ever been made, and
Commissioner Sejmoru merits the un
qualified thanks or all womankind for the
thoroughness of the work. It was a labor
of no small difficulty, as the early methods
were loose nnd Irregular.
From 1T90, when Secretary of Slate.
Thomas Jeffcr&on secured the passage of
an act founding the off ice until 1602,"he
entire work of the office was performed
by a single clerk in the State Department,
and all the records did not fill over a
dozen pigeon holes. In 1602 Dr. Thornton
was appointed "superintendent," anil at
thi end of his twenty two years administra
tion, he left thing In a deplorably muddled
condition. The brief history I have alluded

men, had little practical busincs knowl

"the patent law was made solely for the
encouragement of authors nnd imcntoi?
and not to collect revenue."
With over $4;000,000 now to Its credit in
the United States Treasury, the office has
slgiilflcanlly outgrown the first commis

A great many characteristic stories are

The Sow Woman Tell a Fish Story
Miss Nellie Jones, a Philadelphia girl,
while visiting friends In Bristol on Tuesday,
had a rather remarkable adventure. The
Delaware at this point is fairly alive with
German carp, some of which have grown to
enormous sizes. A fishing party was organ
ized in honor of Miss Jones' visit, nnd
Laicg'd wharf was sclccted'as tho spot'on
which to lure the wary fish. Miss Jones
had no sooner cast her line than the hook
was seized by a greedy carp. In the strug
gle which followed the fair angler lost her
balance, and was actually polled into the
river. Fortunately, the water was not over
there, feet deep, and she pluckily held fast
to her line, eventually landing her fish. It,
proved to be a. teauly, and weighed a trifle'
over tea and a hal f pounds. Hiss Junes was
very proud of her capture, and will have
tho fish staffed and moan ted. Philadelphia

How the Odor 1h Strengthened nnd

Few people know, perhaps, that rome
flower dealers, with the aid of the chem

and fixing the odors of flowers lrorc they

of tbe box a tube is provided with perfora

a current of carbonic acid gas charged
