Geo. Fi Otte fc Co.,
W. If. Stowe and Wife-Interview Wii
From the Enquirer.
Dan Kice the circus man, was found in the
afternoon by an Enquire reporter and was
asked for "some information relative to
Mr. W. II. Stowe and his wife Colonel
Ilice rave the following to the reporter:
" W. II. Stowe resided in New York
City. lie was born in Ohio, near Toledo,
and was between twenty-seven and thirty
years of age. He went into the negro
minstrel business and circrs business
when a lad. lie was a son of old John
Stowe, of Burr, Robbins & Stowe's circus.
Deceased was an excellent your.g man, of
steady habits and temperament. He was'
started as a manager by me last May. I
organized a show for him at Aberdeen, opposite
Maysville, Ky., and let him start
out under my name until he got a foothold.
He got along nicely, and was on the road
to a splendid success. He was a first-class
clown and singer, and has frequently been
here in Cincinnati. His mother resides
here. She is over at Covington now on a
visit. She is shortly to be married again.
The sho.v was on the way to Cairo. They
had met with floods and disaster, but
3Toung Stowe was a very pleasant man socially,
and nlso a man ol great versatility
of talent and ability, and the show would
have pulled through all right.
I fitted out young Stowe, on account of
his wife and children, His wife was Miss
Lizzie Marcellus, aged twenty-two or
twenty-three years, a beautiful, well educated
"and charming lady. She was a fine
artiste as a rider, and was with Barnum
for two years at a salary of $100 a week. I
raised her, and gave her the same educational
advantages as my own children enjoyed.
In 1873 a fellow named Ilarrry
Cadona enticed her from our boat at St.
Paul and married her. I was in Canada,
but, hearing of the elopement, telegraphed
the Chief of Police to stop the marriage,
as the girl was under age ; but he was too
late. By Cadona she had one child, a
boy, but the husband's treatment was so
brutal the young wife could not endure it,
and she got a divorce. This was in 1875,
in Chicago, while she was attached to
Barnum's circus. Young Stowe was her
next friend at that time, and he married
her after the divorce was granted. She
proved a good mother and wife. She bore
Stowe one child, adear little girl, who was
three years ofageatthetime of the calamity.
Mrs. Stowe had saved up $8,000 and
about $2,000 worth of diamonds, and had
bought a cottage. Pier folks were excellent
people, and her mother kept house
for her in New York. There was q lite a
romance connected with my coining into
possession of the child, Lizzie Marcellus.
One day in 1807 I was riding in a buggy
from Albany, N. Y., to Troy. My circus
had passed along in the morning. I noticed
a beautiful little bare-footed, six-year-old
girl driving some cows to pasture
and I spoke to her. I asked her where
she lived, she pointed out her house. I
put the little girl into the buggy and drove
to her parents' house with her. On the
way I asked her if she had seen old Dan
llice's circus pass that way. She gleefully
replied that she had, and added that she
had seen Old Dan himself sitting up on
top of a big chariot. He was an awful
ugly old fellow, she said. I stopped at the
farm-house long enough to light a cigar,
and the littlo girl's mother recognized me
from having seen my picture. Lizzie was
greatly astonished to learn that she had
been talking to old Dan Kice himself, and
calling him ugly, but we made up, and I
started on my way. Lizzie began to cry
and run after me. If had to stop and take
her back home again, I then invited the
parents to come to the circus at Troy, and
they did so. bringing Lizzie with them.
As soon as she saw me enter the ring the
little girl bounded into the Ting and ran
up to me with open arms and wouldn't,
leave me. After the circus was over I told
her parents that if they would allow their
daughter to go with me that I thought shi
would soon get homesick and beccme
cured of her strange infatuation, and I
would then 3end her back to them. They
consented and gave me their child. She
remained with me until she married
Cadona. She has traveled all over the
country, and I tried to persuade her not,
to make the. Southern tour, but she would
go. "Oh, my God !" cried the veteran and
tender-hearted showman, " what will be
the feeling of that poor mother when she
hears of her daughter's death ?"
About the Seminole Indians.
Mrs. Margaret II. Phister, wife of Mr.
Charles Phister, of this city, who is visiting
her daughter, Mrs. M. C. Blaine, at
Fort Clarke, Texas, has contributed the
following to the Western Christian Advocate
A mile and a half from Fort Clark,
Tex., are two Seminole camps.' These
Seminoles are enlisted for one year's service.
Their hardy habits and familiarity
with the countiy render them of unusual
value as scouts and guides for the expeditions
sent to allay any hostile demonstrations
on the part of Indians or white desperadoes
in Texas, New Mexico, or the
Indian Tenitroy. They were recruited
principally from the Indian Nation.
The young readers of the children's column
will have fresh recollections, from
their recent study of United States history,
of the heroism "of the ancestors of tins
tribe, as illustrated in their long, brave
struggle for their homes in the Flowery
Land. Thev were the aborigines of Florida.
A century of Spanish rule there closed
with little else than a retreat to Spanish
strongholds and the ruins of their massive
In 1821 their flag came from San Augustine
and St. Marks. A treaty between the
Indians and our government gave them
the center of the peninsula as their reserve.
In the face of this treaty a candid
historian admits that in May" 1832, by
strategy and fire-water, a lew chiefs were
induced, in opposition to the wishes of
the majority, to agree to move to the far
West Fort Gibson, on the Arkansas.
The troops sent to compel their removal
met with such desperate resistance that,
had they a written history, their victory
over Dade's command on "the 31st of December,
183d, would have wreathed with
laurels the memory of their hero, the
chief Rising Sun in Seminole, Osceola.
This little review of their past may
make a glance at their present interesting.
The wise oversight of the government extends
to their children. As good a school
is now taught at the Seminole camp connected
with Fort Clark as the average
school taught in the rural districts in the
States reading, writing and arithmetic,
Uni e 1 States history. Books and
are furnished. The present teacher
has had frequent opportunities of attendance
at the Chautauqua Assembly. The
exercises are begun by reading God's word
a good old habit of "many of the best
of learning of the past. Many of
the Advocate's older readers will recall this
course at Science Hill Seminary, and recognize
it as producing unmeasured results
in the characters of many naval and military
officers, state and territorial governors",
clergymen, congressmen, senators,
legislators and one president.
We have on numerous occasions been
one of a party who accompanied the officer
in charge of education, as he made his
visits of inspection to the Seminole
school. As they read or recited with
their slight Spanish brogue, the largo
