Old lore letters read in court The hr.nd
that wrote them Is still in death, but that
detracts nothing from their fervor. Jennie
Stoner, who says she's Jennie Lusk, gives
some of of Mr. A. P. Lusk's tender missives
to the world, while trying to obtain one
third of the residue of the estate of said
deceased Lusk. The epistolary correspond

"Bunny" case was not more tender than
rEFECIAL TELEGRAM TO TIIXJ DISrATCH.1
Habbisbdbq, January 7. Some of the
love letters which A. P. Lusk, a prominent
citizen of this city, who died nearly a
year and a half ago, wrote to Jennie
Stoner, who claims to be his widow,
were read to-day before the auditors
appointed to distribute the estate of the de
ceased. Mr. Lusk died worth about $90,
000, of which 40,000 have been apportioned
to different relatives mentioned iu the will
of Mr. Lusk. Miss Stoner (or Mrs. Lusk)
claims one-third of the amount not dis
tributed, and through counsel on Saturday
asked to be permitted to testify as to her
marriage with Lusk. The auditors to-day
decided that she was not a competent wit
ness, because of self-interest, to which an
exception was taken. Among the letters
read was the following, written in 1SS0 or
How would you like to be smothered in furs
and held closely in a pair of coatsleores with
Eomebody's arms in them to keep you warm
and prevent your ramming out and nurt your
self in case of an upset?

,lonc since I have eujoyed a sleigh rido that I
don't believe that I would be hardly a safe
person to take charge of this nice package
wrapped up in furs w ith nothing visible to the
naked eye but two sparkling eyes, looking all
kinds of sweet mischief and childlike inno
cence. I must quit this strain, or else you will
come to the conclusion that I should have some
one appointed by the court to take charge of
my business, as it shows a tendency of softness
of the brain, w hich I didn't want done or take
HOrED SHE WOtJIiD BRACE UP.
On September 7 Lusk said in a. letter:
I hope the bracing mountain air, pure milk,
and sweet country bread will build you up
strong and hearty, and you will return with an
overflow of spirits and, if possible, more love
and affection to lavish on those who are so fond
of you. and for a little advice gratis. You must
be careful not to exert yourself in your mount
ain ramble, as it is rest you most need. I
would also call your attention to the danger of
poisonous snakes that are sometimes to be
found in the mountains, and the charm of the
domestic nephew of the hotel. I didn't know
of any other dangerous things to call your at
tention to, to avoid at this time.
The writer also asked the lady whom he
addressed to make arrangements for his
coming at the hotelat which she was stop
ping in the mountains. On September 13,
1881, Mr. Lusk wrote as follows, in re
sponse to a letter sent him from the mount
ain home of his sweetheart:
Ji was delighted to hear that you were in so
much better health and showed so much
anxiety and sincere interest in my coming to
tee you, which I expect to do without fail on
Saturday next. But I will object to be handled
with the strength of a bear, as my ribs would
not stand that kind .of hugging and I don't
propose to have any of them even cracked, so
jou must not expect to try your powerful
strength In that way on your obedient servant.
"V our kind promise to muss my collar up good
is very gratif j mg, I can assure you, dear Jint,
and I will most certainly give you all the op
portunity you may wish to accomplish it.
On September 20 Lusk wrote as follows:
If I don't hear from you at once I will either
come to see jou or send a police officer with
full power to hunt J ou up and hold you till I
come and take full charge of j ou. You should
have been here last week to attend the county
fair. It is said they paid premiums on good
looks. I am sure you would have got a great
big one from what you write about your health.
On September 27, 1881, the following was
'written by Mr. Lusk:
HE "WASTED ALL HEE X.OVE.
I will be there (the mountain resort at which
she was stopping) to-morrow(Saturday) and you
may expect full investigation about this Ash
ing, and what you have been doing since you
have been away. I am coming, coming, coming,
and say to all the fellows to keep shady and
save trouble, as I will want all your love and
as many sweet kisses as you may have on hand
to dispose of and no fishing need apply.
This is the last until I come and
press you to my heart and make it glad, for it
deserves some feast of kindness for its late
troubles, that you were so inaifferent in
neglecting to write a word 01 comfort.
On November 13, 1881, Lusk wrote as fol
lows: Your kind note was kindly receivedlast even
ing, on my return from mv local Mecca at
Highspire. From the tone of"your letter I pre
sume jou were none the worse of your ex
perience at the door when on the watch the
evening before, which I was glad to see, I can
assure you. I was disappointed when I found
the doorstep empty and dear Jint not about, as
I promised myself a sweet chat and a delight
ful promenade on the banks of the beautiful
Susquehanna by starlight with her. I expect
to take a trip on Saturday morning, at 0:35, to
Old Point Comfort. 1 am anxious to press you
to my heart before leaving, in order that! may
have Jint's heart pressed close and tight, so it
may not start away in my absence.
In another letter Lusk expressedja wish
to be a sparrow that he might fly to Miss
Stoner and whisper sweet words in her ear.
A prominent banker testified that all the
letters were in Lusk's handwriting. The
hearing will be continued in Philadelphia
on Saturday next.
ON THE KW TEACTION E0AD.
The Cable Cars Will Prove Acceptable in
More Cases Than One.
The new cable cars on the Butler street
division of the Citizens' Traction road will
be gladly welcomed for more reasons than
that of rapid transportation. The present
cars are dirty and the most uncomfortable
imaginable. The company cannot be
blamed very much lor the condition of
these cars, as it is almost a waste of money
o repair them, for the new cars -will be
'ready in a few days.
The cars are being shipped by the Pull
mans ai rapidly as possible. The grips are
attached at the barns, and as soon as a suf
ficient number are ready for the road the
horse cars will be abandoned.
A Couple of Interesting Papers Read at
the Meeting Yesterday.
At the meeting of the Evangelical Minis
terial Association yesterday an interesting
paper on "Woman's "Work" was read by
Bev. W. BT. McMillan. He said the weaker
sex had been held as a necessary but merit
less appendage to the stronger sex.
Dr. L IT. Havs, in a paper on "Temper
ance Campaign' advocated the division of
the State into three districts, each division
being in charge of seven representative men
tohelp the temperance movement. A com
mittee was appointed to carry out the plan.
Resolutions on the death ot Bev. if. B.
C. Comiugo were passed.
The Police Again Take n Hnnd.
Antone Lynch, a resident ot "West Car
son street, was arrested yesterday afternoon
on a charge of selling liquor without
license. The information was made by In
spector Q. W. Stevens, 0f the Sontbide
The Chamber of Commerco Is Asked to
Aid In Having It Held Here.
The Chamber of Commerce held r meet
ing yesterday afternoon. A number of
resolutions were adopted, but, owing to the
crowded condition of the columns of The
Dispatch, it is impossible to give them in
full. Chairman Dravo, of the Committee
on Rivers and Harbors, introduced a resolution-directing
that Colonel Merrill be asked
the cause of the delay in the construction of
the Herr's Island dam.
A communication was read from the Presi
dent of the Cincinnati Chamber of Com
merce, asking that a committee of three be
appointed to attend the dedication of their
new building. President Schmertz and
Messrs. Batchelor and Kelly were appointed.
The dedication occurs on January 30.
A communicatien was read from the
Grand Army Day Committee, of'Allegheny
county, asking that the Chamber of Com
merce indorse an invitation to the G. A. B.
to hold their annual encampment in this
city in 1S!K), and assist in procuring the
funds necessary to make the gathering a
success. Fifty thousand dollars is the
amount required to be pledged. The letter
states that the meeting should be held here;
first, for business reasons. 'It would bring
much money and many visitorsinto the city.
Second, for patriotio reasons. To this city
belongs the honor of holding the first
soldiers and sailors' convention, in 1866,
from which convention sprung, to a great
extent, the G. A. B. The many other ad
vantages of holding the encampment in this
city were also put forth in the communica
tion. It was referred to the Finance Com
mittee. Mr. Bickertson reported a, resolution ask
ing Congress for a tariff of 2J cents on tin
plate. Hon. Morrison Foster made the
amendment that it be made unlawful for
anv manufacturer to employ persons not
citizens of the United States in the manu
facture of such articles. The amendment
was lost and the resolution adopted.
Mr. Foster afterward explained that in
his resolution he meant to exclude only
such foreigners as never intended to become
citizens of the United States.

A Resident of the Eighteenth Ward Re
ceives One of These Missives.
Lawrenceville has either a band of
"White Caps" within its limits or else a
practical joker who imagines it is funny to
decorate a sheet of paper with drawings of
pistols, whips and grinning skulls,
and then write within this sensational
border a terrible warning, threatening all
sorts of punishment for the man who persists
in doing what this "reformer" thinks is a
A man named Hanlen, who resides in the
Eighteenth ward, is the latest victim. He

has nothing to fear, as he is as well behaved
as the average citizen of Pittsburg.

A Pittsburg Barkeeper Astonishes Swell
New Yorkers Seven Distinct Honors
With Seven Distinct Colon.
Clever Eddie at the Duquesne served yes
terday to some fastidions guests several
drinks of the pousse cafe order that made
even the cosmospolitan New Yorkers open
To the uninitiated, by the way, a pousse
consists in certain wines and liquors served
in the same glass, but each separated from
the other by its specific gravity, in such a
way that a rainbow of liquors is made with
the line between each pousse so sharply
drawn that there is no suspicion of mixture.
Books have been written on the enticing
pousse, but heretofore no one has succeeded
in pouring more than five layers of wines
upon each other without trouble and mix
Yesterday Eddie served the astonished
New Yorkers with seven different colored
liquors with blazing brandy on top, and if
other barkeepers wish to follow his example
the following is the formula:
First gentlv pour into a tall wineglass a
little marischino, E. A. Poo's bibulous
dream; then a little creme denint, the
frenzied Frenchman's idol; then someapro
cotine, followed bv curaeao, the Spaniard's
delight; then yellow chatreuse, then green
chatrcuse, the aesthetic Englishman's loves,
and finally pure brandy; ignite the latter
and servo, as a whole, the seductive favorite
of the universal American, a perfect pousse,
and'watch the fireworks that lollow.
