. Forakee Polities Bis BUI to
Them With Stones.
Confederate veterans and-Southern
ers generally "are taking a deep inter
If eat in the Foiaker bill to appropriate
I ?200,000 to nay the lands in Northern
states wberin rest the bodies of Con
federates <rho died in the- Northern
. prisons fn the civil war, to improve
; these grounds substantially and to
erect headstones over the graves. A
good deal of Northern sentiment, too,
is with the people of the South in this
'i matter, as is evidenced by the fact
' that Senator Forakcr, himseli a fire
eating veteran of the rebellion, is urg
ing the passage of the bill.
President Roosevelt himself is fa
vorable to proper care of the graves
of Confederates who died in the
Northern prisons. He recommended
this in his last menage.
President McKinley was also favor
able to it and through his efforts the
Confederate dead in the District of
Columbia over six years ago were all
brought together in Arlington ceme
tary and a separate plat prepared for
The great difficulty in the way of
the proper care of the Confederate
graves in the Northern states is In
the house. There, for the political
reason that survivors of the civil war
In the Northern states might ob j cot
to appropriating money to expend on
the graves of Confederates, nothing
has been done and the opposition to
doing anything has by no means pass
ed. The bill Senator Foraker now
has introduced, has already been
twice passed by the senate.
Statistics gatheedon the number of
Confederate dead In the North show
the total la 30,152. Of the number
3,300 are buried in the national ceme
teries. Their graves are given as good
attention as those of the soldiers
who defended the union. The graves
of the remained are scattered about
and designation-and location are rap
Idly becoming imposible. Unless the
government takes charge of them and
either buys the land in which they are
situated or removes the. remains of
national cemetaries, it will in a few
years, be out of the question to find

With his mind wrecked by years of
hardship, George Adams Robinson, a
descendant of two presidents of the
United States, a Harvard graduate of
the class of 1861, a veteran cf the
civil war, a tairty-s- cond degree Ma
son, stood before the oity court at
Bridgeport, Conn., Tuesday morning
pleading for his liberty. Two weeks
ago Robinson was taken in charge by
the authorities for asking alms on the
street and was placed in the alms
house. Robinson, who is seventy
years oldjs the son of a Dr. Robin
son, of Boston. His mother was a'
daughter of John Quinoy Adams,
sixth president of the United State,
and a grandaughter of John Adams,
the second president. R binson is a
seining engineer, and has spent much
01' his time in the West. The year he
was graduated from Harvard he en
listed in the Eighth regiment, Mass
acbusetts volunteers, and saw service
under both Sherman and Sheridan.
Lives Oat ot Doors.
Rev. Dr. John Clendennln, a son-in
law of Horace Greeley, believes he
owes bis life to living cut of dcors
day and night. When he took up his
abode in the open last September he
was thin and. emaciated and had a
? had cough, but from the time he be
gan sleeping out of doors he began to
show improvement and now believes
he has been cured. During the last
six months Dr Clendennln has .practi
' cally lived in the open air spending
but little more time within doors
than It takes to eat. He drives dur
the day or indulges in long tramps,
but be sleeps on a balcony off the
third story of his house.

Bather Than Tellja Suitor She Ooui>3
When all the guests had gathered
tor her wedding- and the arrival of
the bridegroom wds expected, Miss
Jennie Graham, ninteen years old, of
2051 Margaret street Pniladelpbia Ph.
attempted to poison herself Thursday.
Calling all her family and the guests
around her, the girl said she never
could be happy with a maa she did
not love, and that she preferred death
to a lifetime of misery. Before any
one could Interfere, or even before
her intent was suspected, she had
swallowed two ounces of laudanum.
Miss Graham will live, and in all
probability she will wed another. She
is slowly recovering in the Frankfort
hospital, where an extraordinary in
cident to the case happened Wednes
day afternoon, The rejected Buitor
Reuben Dean, twenty one years old,
of 2051 Margaret street, attired In
readiness for bis wedding, came face
to face with Charles Parfitt, his suc
cessful rival, at the bedside of the
Dean had rushed in dismay from
the brides home while Parfitt had
come frcm his cilice. Until news
was brought to him that the young
woman was near death, Parfitt did
not 6ven know that this was to be
her wedding day. For a moment the
men hashed looks of anger at each
other, but apparently being moved
by the thought of death hovering
over the girl uncouncious on the cot
at their sides, they turned away with
out a word, and left the room by op
posite doors. The physicians when
they heard of the meeting gave strict
orders that it should not happen
again. Tney were irritated over she1
affair, saying that had Miss Graham
been in a state to observe the men,
she might have experienced a mortal
The youDg woman was rntraged to
wed Dean when she met Pirfitt and
Thursday night when she was said
to be out of danger and steadily pick
ing up her strength, she said she had
ntc hod the courage tc tell Dean she
ironic! marry him. She said that she
could not llgbtfy dismiss to the man
who had asked ber to be his wife, but
that all of last night her heart grew
in heaviness ever the prospect of sep
aratingherself from Parfitt fcrsver.
All morning Miss Graaam kept her
self locked in the'room, and only an
hour before the time set for the cere
mony, which was to take place in the
parlor of her parent's home, did she
join her Tamil*. Then she seemed to
be all merriment and happiness. But
her hilarity was only assumed as a
mask to conceal her grief which
quickly carried her to despair.
