A PROLIFIC MOTHER.
A Bcmarliablo PlilladclpliIuSSnlron, Wlio
Had Six Children Hflorw Mlie U'u 21,
and 21 Children When Iter Ilakbaml
A most extraordinary -woman in her
peculiar line, and one who is largely responsible
for the rapid increase in the
population of Philadelphia within the
past half century, is an old lady living
on Columbia avenue, in the northern
part of the city. The New York Mercury
says she is the mother of no less
than twenty-one children, the most of
whom are living. A representative of
the Mercury recently visited the wholesale
mother. The reporter was ushered
into the sitting-room of her residence
one evening, and at first he "was doubtful
whether he had dropped in on a Sunday
school in session for a miscellaneous
party. There was certainly enough
human material prosent to make either
or both. The old lady consented to
give full particulars, "providing," Bhe
said, "you do not publish my name. I
wouldn't like to have it spread all over
creation that I have so many children."
The required rrnrise being freely
given, she said :
" Yes, John and I were married when
I was sixteen. John, he -was twenty-five,
and a haLd corner man could not be
found in Philadelphia, even if I do say it
myself. About a year and a half after
our marriage I astonished John by presenting
him with triplets. ' Well,'' says
he, 'Mary, this ig a good beginning,
anyhow.' John was only a poor shoemaker
then, and three added to a family
all at once did make a great difference,
but three lovelier babes couldn't be found
in Philadelphia, even if I do Bay it myself,
and so we thought we'd get along.
Two years' after, I became the mother of
twins. I could see that John felt a little
blue over this, But he would have his
little joke, would John. 'Well, Mary,'
says he, 'you're not doing any worse, anyhow.
It was a little better, thank God.'
Fifteen months after that I bore, one
child only, a dear little boy. Ah ! then
we had a grand, glorious family jollification.
John, for the first time in his
life, got tight as a lord. 'Ah, sis,' said
he, 'we've got down to a proper
economical basis at last.' At that time
I "was only twenty-one years old, and I
tell you -what, to be the mother of six
children at that age seemed very queer,
but, still, I thought the worst was over.
Many women at double that age did not
have larger families than mine was then.
Two years passed by and I again became
a mother. This time, to our
itxroved to be another pair
of twins. John got tight again, but
this time from sorrow, and not from joy.
' Mother,' says he, ' this is awful.' 'You
are right, John,' says I. But these Iwv
were a lovely little boy and girl, and
their cute little ways and beauty soon
put courage into our hearts. John
owned a little shop, work was brisk, and
all went smoothly along until a year and
a half afterward, when we had another
pair of twins.
" This broke John all up, and he went
on a spree for three weeks. 'Old
woman,' says ho, ' I can't support a whole
oountry.' Well, I soothed and sobered
hirn up, and got him to working again,
for the Lord knows there was need of it
then. During the next ten years I had
only six children, being single births
only. John and I began io feel very
much encouraged. 'Ah, sis,' says he,
' we won't have so muoh jof a family,
after ahV Three years passed away
without any a&difcipn to my family; when
in my year I presented
my amazed husbund with another pair
,c twins.. f 'Mother,'. nayjB he, , 'this is

Butfn"e' other- children wre "wtjvftilrg,
and we put the best face we could on the
matter. Two years after, and wiiu I
was in my fortieth year, to our
bounded surprise, I bore another Set '6f
triplets. This, T'thmC'ElIed poor John.
Yes, sir, he's dead died ten years ao
this coming June. ' Mother,' says lip'
'I think I've lived long enough.' " ''
Thia remarkable woman is fifty years
of age, hale, hearty, and well preserved.
Her parents enrae from Scotland,
marrying and settling in this
county in early life. Her husband was
or lrisli descent. His parents also im-migrated
to the United States when
quite young. " Yes," the old lady said,
"we did after a while have trouble to
find the right kind of names for the
babies. First it was easy enough, but
after we had used up all our familv
names we were bothered a good bit. I
used to have the neighbors call in and
we'd have a good time thinking oi
names. But one day John got an
almanac which had in "it a long list oi
boys' and girls' names, and then wc were
"Of my children eleven were "boys
and ten girls. All are living but two-one
son who died in his fourth year, from
croup, and a little girl who was run over
by a street car when she was three years
old. and killed. You see I had so many
little things running around at a time
that it was hard for me to look after
them all. All the rest of my family are
heartv and well.
Fnn for tlio King.
Cetewayo invented a new way of making
change. A dentist having pulled a
tooth for him, objected to tho amount of
gold the Zulu King insisted on heaping,
"All right 1" said Cetewayo, "if it
isn't, I'll make it right."
The king called in his guards and bade
J the dentist to draw their teeth, which
was done amidst yells and wnthings that
Celewayo hugely enjoyed. In fact, he
liked it so much that he pensioned the
dentist, made him one of his household,
and for a diversion ordered a general
tooth-drawing every Saturday afternoon.
One of the most terrible diseases with
which the Italians are afflicted is pellagra.
It is attended by emaciation,
of the stomach and bowels, with terrible1
suffering and convulsions. It chiefly
afflicts the poorer classes, who live
mainly on Indian corn. After patient
investigation, Dr. Lambroso has discovered
that it is caused by diseased
corn, which forms an alkaloid resembling
strychnine. Arsenic counteracts the
disease. He advises a careful and wholesale
investigation into the species of
corn so affected, and the methods of cultivation.
A German locksmith invented a remarkable
apparatus for garroting physicians
who were to be invited to visit a
sick man, and when caught in the trap
compelled, under fear of death, to Bign
cheoks. After this extortion of money
they were to be hugged to death by the
machine and their bodies thrown in
a canal. Tho locksmiths accomplices
"confessed " or made known the scheme
to the police, and the ingenious criminal
was prevented from making even' 6n6
