THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, ISfARCH 21, 1894.
For a -Woman;
By a Woman.
Does tho tired little mother know, asks the
editor of tho Bazar, when she feel3 as It sho
could not take another step, and it is almost
a question when she closes her cjes at night
If she cares to open them in tho morning, or
would be a question if It were not for those in
whose behalf she is so weary, that there is
really no occasion for such fatigue as hers?
She smiles at the idea. "No occasion!" she
soys. "With my Janey needing this, andHarry
wanting that, and Willy suffering for the
other thing! With tho baby to have his
rights, with tho house at sixes and sevens,
and Its dear master demanding and deserving
tho best and most no occasion for my fa
tigue!" Tint ot hor hmm and reconsider. Docs
Jnney really teed this? It Is not a fancied
need merely? Would she not be as well off
without It, after all Is it indispensable to
her health and good name and her soul's
welfare? Is it llnery, frills, and furbelows
that make tho extra stitchesand steps which
tire the back and eyes of her that takes them?
Would she not be just as happy and whole
some In simpler garments? And if only tho
ambition to rival her mates causes the work,
would it not bo a good oxerciso in moral
strength to let her know the trouble and ap
prove and apply tho remedy herself? For if
she loves her mother sho cannot wish her to
tiro herself out for her own little vanities or
great ones; and if sho does not love hcrenough
for that, then sho ought not to bo considered
to such an extent. And does Harry want
what ho wants sufficiently for him to pay tho
price of prts.-ntly having no mother at all. or
at best a stepmother, in order to give it to him
now? There are somo things too costly for
her to give; and the price of Harry's gratified
desire, added to all the rest, is the price
of strength, and it may bo of life. And
for what can Willy bo suffering that his suf
fering should outweigh hers? And tho baby's
rights! Ah, wo verily believe that there's the
Tho baby must be kept as tho first baby
was, when all was new and bright, and tho
strength was new and bright, too. His little
gowns must be white; thev must bo changed
daily, and sometimes twice a day, and they
must bo in number for that reason, and if
there is no one elso to iron the flutings and
quillings and insertions and edgings, she
must do it herself, or do something ele to
make things even while that is being done, in
order that ho shall always look as fresh as a
Held daisy, as sweet as a white rosebud, But
whoso is" the baby? Does it give any but a
Eossing pleasure to others than herself and
er household; and will not she, will not
they, love that baby just tho same if ho has
not a-mfflo on him and in a little gown as
braWn as tho thrushes wear? Will he not bo
just as sweet, his kisses just as dear, his fair
face all the fairer by comparison? And as
for the house and its order, does any one ex
pect a houso full of children to be full of
order too? When people wajtz long, and
wish to restore the equilibrium, ihey reverse;
cannot tho children who get things out of
order put them back in order? And as for
tho master of the house ah, there we will
not he of the fools that rush in! Only let the
wife and mother think lhat it if more to ono
and all of them to have her than to havethese
things sho is pursuing to her ruia, and that
she will do husband and children tho more
good the more sho simplifies her life and
A WORD OK TWO
ABOUT POTS AND FANS.
When you are furnishing your pantry, says
tho Bazar, bear in mind that it is sometimes
poorcconemy to save money. Bo a little
lavish in pots and pans, bowls and spoons.
Your strength is your capital. Do not squan
der it by doing without what you need in the
way of utensils or wear yourself out washing
them again and again in the course of one
morning's work because you havenno'er
scant supply of necessary vessels.
There are plenty of homes where tho abun
dant food served on handsome cnina is pre
pared by the cook with tho greatest difficulty
because of insufficient utenlls. A visit to
such kitchens would reveal makeshifts that
aro usually associated with poverty. Cake
and puddings mixed in a soup tureen or vege
tablo dish in default of regular mixing
bowls, bread Set to rise in a dihpan for
lack of a bread bowl, left-overs set away in
the handsome china dishes in which they
came from tho table because there are not
kitchen plates and cups to hold them, worn
out chopping bowls, leaky measuring cups,
dented and dingy tins, and a general "down-at-heel"
condition of affairs.
This i3 not alwaj-3 tho fault of tho mistress.
OTten it happens that she has provided all
tho essentials, and the carelessness of her
servants has brought about the dearth and
disorder. Unless she goes into tho kitchen
regularly and 'looks well to tho ways of her
pantries, she must expect that loss and break
ages will rass unreported. The woman
who doe more or less of her own cooking
will be spared this annoyance, at least.
The best ware for pots and pans is usually
of agate, although it is difficult to find a
make that will nor crack or scale. The blue
I-orcelain-Iined vessels aro always pretty and
clean looking. Of theso or the agate should
be Jho double boilers, the double-bottomed
saucepans, tho frylng-kcttle, tho pudding
dishes, and sundry other equally u-oful ves
sels. Have an om''et pan as well as a frying
pan, a waffle-iron as well as a griddle, muffin
tins as well as bis-yjit pans. And, above all,
do not stint yourself in tho matter of bowls.
Have of big bowls ono or two, of medium
sized bowls three or four, and of small bowls
as many as your financial conscience will al
low you to get. They are cheap, they take up
little room, aro easily kept clean, and aro al
ways useful, not only for mixing small quan
tities, for beating an"cggor two. but for hold

Bo lavish also in spoons for mixing and for
measuring, and in knives of varius sizes for
cut.ing meat and bread, for paring apples
and potatoes. Hae a split spoon for taking

Tho two were of the same hamlet.

passed twenty-four hours without their seeing
each other twenty-four times.
They were called Tepa and Pope.
And, nev ertheless, they could not see each
other, as they say commonly.
Ami more, they almost hated each other.
They sought each other frequently to Insult
each other, to quarrel, and were not really
happy except when they had played, the one
upon tho other, omo annoying trick.
And this had continued since their most
tender infancy, since they crept about to
gether, since they walked among tho uplifted
hills around their huddled native village.
In time they wcro two young peopie.

As for her, sho was an adorable girl, a
brunette, lively, nervy, slight, with eyes and

yourself with a board to cut bread upon, with
a paint brush to grease cake tins, with an
iron-bandied dishcloth for cleaning pots and

There nre many other no less useful articles

DO WOMEN REALLY SMOKE?
Eminent Washington Ladles Express Opin
ions for Us.
Among tho men who havo been sent abroad
to represent this country as ministers, says
tho New York Press, is one from the far West
whose wffo is a confirmed cigarette smoker.
Sho took no pains to conceal the fact, and
didn't hido herself in tho seclusion of her
chamber to indulgo her fondness for the
weed. It was well understood among the
guests who went to the house that after
dinner or during tho evening sho would
smoke in the parlor with tho gentlemen.
The Tress person looks into tho general mat
ter of smoking cigarettes.
Mme. llomero, wife of tho Mexican min
"I havo never seen ladies smoking in Wash
ington, although I hao heard they do some
times. But I do know a charming woman
who gavo a large dinner shortly after coming
to Washington to live. When tho ladies
reached the drawing-room nfter dinner she
asked them if they would not have cigarettes.
When they all declined, sho looked surprised,
"Oh, you needn't bo afraid of me." Tho
ladies still said "no," and then sho explained
her oiler and astonishment with:
"Why, I had heard that all Washington
women smoked, and I was afraid you might
miss something you needed. I laid in a sup
ply and all the outfit."
do you approve of smoKingr' jirs.
Lamont asked; "and would you over visit
again at a houso w hero tho ladies did produce
"You can't get mo to answer that, for it
bapjwns that I visit houses where friends to
wh'om I am quite attached do uso them. I
shouldn't want to say I couldn't go there sim
ply because they happen to havo different
opinions on that subject. They aro very nlco
and cultured people. When wo were In Wash
ington before I saw ladies smoking, but only
in rare instances, and then the women had
acquired tho habit abroad."
Everybody who was in tho capital at the
time Mmo. DeStruve reigned refers to her
habit, and the tone in which some of them de
scribe the sang froid with which she calmly lit
her cigarette in the houses of some very
straight-laeed people is Etrongly tinctured
with ndmlration for her audacity.
Mrs. Olney lookod vastly amused.
"I have heard of ladies who smoked, but
you can bo assured they wouldn't be apt to
get cigarettes in my house."
Miss Herbert's smile was decidedly retro
spective when tho subject of cigarettes was
broached to her. Tho smile seemed to be tho
result of tho memory of some scene that rose
before her fine blue eyes.
"Indeed, I've noer seen it in Washington,
but," with a long pause, "I've been where
cigarettes were smoked summers."
Tho wife of Congressman Geary said in her
"Object, and what should I object to it for?
Just think of it from an artistic standpoint.
Whatever else Is said against it, nobody can
deny that many women seen through a dim
haze of smoke look all the better for it. Then,"
enthusiastically, "ju-t picture a pretty girl
with a prettily curved, firm white wrist and a

ANOTHER riUGHTrUL ASSAULT.
Adelaide Waters, an Actress, Rescued from
a Band of Villains.
New Yobk, March 20. Another murderous
assault on a young woman occurred here last
night. Tho victim Is a young actress and the
police vary the usual story by capturing tho
offenders. At an early hour to-day word was
sent to tho police station in Jersey City
that a woman was being murdered
in a lot nt the corner
of York and Hudson streets. Officers wero
dispatched to tho place. Standing on the
stoop of an unoccupied house they saw a
woman struggling to free herself from the
gra3p of a number of men. She was scream
ing and crying for help. Three men suc
ceeded in making their escape over a side
fence, but four others wero captured.
Tho woman was Adelaide Waters, an
actress, playing with the McKee Kankin com-
And in effect this was true. Pepe Gathered
quickly a handful of nettles, and with theso
cautiously approaened tho girl, with inten
tion undoubtedly of slipping them into tho
neck and breast of the sleeper.
"How she is going to scratch!" he said to
himself, enjoying in advance the torture ho
was preparing for tho maid.
And approaching closely to her ho pro
ceeded with great caution to undo tho hooks
of her waist, until ho uncovered to view tho
finest modeled throat that ever unfolded to
the Inimitable chisel of a Phidias.
Pepa had not awakened.
The young man smiled, opened tho waist a
little farther, extended his hands, full of tho
stinging nettles, nnd just as he wus golug to
stuff them in the bosom of tho girl ho stopped
as if paralyzed, his hand fell inert, littio by
little, down by his side, and an indefinable ex
pression of astonf shment, of pleasure nnd sur
prise, spread over hi3 picturesque counte
nance. What was passing through that boy's soul?
Why did he hesitate then to disturb his
Did he finally havo pity on her who had so
often mocked at him and whom he had mal
treated and persecuted with his mockery 1
Were all the tricks of which ho had been
tho victim and at which tho village boys had
constantly laughed forgotten?
Why did ho remain there with his eyes nnd
mouth so wide open, an image of stupidity,
on his knees beside Pepa, adoring her as if
he was worshiping?
Nothing could bo more natural.
Until that moment Pepe had considered the
gin oniy as an ovu cnick, revolting, worthy
always of a kick, never of a caress.
And now for the first time he noted that
that revolting creature and intractable was a
conjunction of rare perfections.
A new clearness illuminated his snirlt. nnd
,in ecstatic contemplation he admired, without
wcu uuuerBuuiuuij? it, tne masterworic wmen
he had the good fortune to look upon.
Weakened and disquieted by the sweet
science which he had learned so quickly in
that moment, he studied with avidity of sight
and curiosity all the enchantments of Pepita.
By virtue of contemplating all that he
understood that Pepa was adorable.
An unknown sensation throbbed vigorously
in his heart and heated the blood in bis veins.
He felt that there throbbed in his lips a
hundred years of kisses, and the wild desire
caressed him to unload them on the smiling
mouth of the sleeper.
But at the same time, and unaccountably,
he was invaded by a respecting fear, palpi
tant, and he began with trembling fingers to
fasten, one by one, all the hooks which he
naa joosenea a little beforo with such sinister
Scarcely had that operation terminated
cany. Her clothing was torn almost from her
back, and she showed signs of having been
frightfully abused. The men were arraigned
beforo Justice O'Donnell, who held them for
trial. The prisoners gave the names of Henry
Pagan, John Connelly, Michael Klugenstiel,
and William Gurr.
Miss Waters is in a critical stato from the
shock. Tbo physicians at the hospital fear
she cannot recover. When tho McKee
Rankin combination was plying here a
week ago she was taken sick in
the railroad station and had to be
removed to Taylor's Hotel, where sho has
since been under the care of Dr. J. Niven.
She had been taking morphine to allay ber
fiains, and it is supposed that while delirious
ast night she left the hotel without tho
knowledge of the doctor, wandered away,

On a Michigan nvenuo car tho other day a
woman had a baby about a year old on her
lap, and next on her right sat an oldish man,
who was ovidently fond of babies. Tho baby
looked at him, and ho smiled and clucked in

Nevertheless, doubtless from custom, sho

"Then what aro you doing hero on your

to lift upon her head a great basket of

Pepe had not noticed.
"Do you wish me to help you?" a3ked he,

Surprised at this unexpected gallantry
Pepa pulled back with auger aud sought to

NATAL DAY OF NEAL DOW
Celebrated by Local Societies at Con

ABLE AND ELOQUENT SPEECHES
A Short Sketch of the Work Accomplished by
One of Maine's Most Illustrious Sons The
Venerable Temperance Advocate Eat
Beached the Age of Four Score and Ten.
The 90th birthday of Neal Dow, the vener
able temperance reformer, was celebrated in
this city at Convention Hall lost night by the
temperance organizations of the District of
Columbia. An Immense audience of en
thusiastic listeners was present and burst
into prolonged applauso as mention was
made of that illustrious character in the causo
of ota! abstinence. A number of eloquent
and ablo speakers paid high tributes of praise
to the veteran temperanco agitator, and gave
out a number of solid opinions on the exist
ence of tho saloons.
Tho exercises wcro formally opened with
tho congregational singing of "My Country,
'Tis of Thee," following which the Rev. Dr.
Sunderland, of tho First Presbyterian church,
offered prayer. Bcv. Luther B. Wilson, of
the Foundry Methodist Episcopal church,
introduced tho Hon. Nelson Dlngley, of
Maine, who outlined tho life of Mr. Dow. ne
said that Gen. Dow was born in 1801, and
soon began an Incessant work, in season and
out of season, to promote tho interests of the
people by abolishing tho salo of liquor.
Ho started a crusade in tho
schoolhouses, going from district to
district, telling tho pathetic story of
drunkards, wee and temptation, and suc
ceeded In having a law passed prohibiting
the salo of liquor in Maine. He has kept at
his work untiringly until to-dny he has
reached bi3 ninetieth year, beloved by ail
and honored by tho celebrations of a great
mas of temperanco workers in tbis country
and in Europe. At the conclusion of Mr.
Dingley's address Mr. Edward Tracy very
effectively played acornet solo, "Hear Us, Ch
"Our hero," said Mrs. Dr. M. McCIellan
Brown, "has grown younger as tho years
rolled by. He seems to perceive tho relation
between man and man and possesses a plead
ing power that persuades weaker men to pro
tect themselves against the appetite for drink.
A petition in tho name of every man
and woman in Washington," said Mrs.
Brown, "should bo r resented to Concress to
abolish the solo of liquor in the city of Wash
ington." After the singing of a hymn by the Moody
choir, which did such magnificent work at
the recent revivals, the Hon. Luther Benson,
of Indiana, said that Gen. Dow was so grand,
great and majestically tall that we have to
bena back and shade our eyes to see him.
Ho has given his wbolo life to n principle and
cause for tho advancement of humanity.
Liquor is a foe to tho welfare of the United
States. Mr. Dow was the first man in
America to attack it, and under his ever
steady and nover ceasing blows the foe will
forever flee from this land.
Following the taking of a collection to de
fray the expenses of thU large meetf ug. Mr.
Percy Foster sang "Somebody's Boy," and
then Mr. Elijah A. Morse, of Massachusetts,
spoke. He believes that tho time is coming
when men who sell rum will be scorned, and
that the victory of thi3 conquest will be
greater than any military victory yet won.
A suitable motto to be adopted on the birth
day of Gen. Dow is "Christianity and total
abstinence now and forever."
Dr. A. J. Foutz. of the Father Matthew's
Temperanco Society, addressed the audience.
"The appeal from every center is the appeal
to stop tho liquor traffic," he said. "Arch
bishop Ireland, of St. Paul, has influenced
Irishmen of that city to such an extent that
only tv6 of that raco aro now proprietors of
saloons In that city." Letters were read from
Mr. C. A. Boutello and Mr. Seth L. Millikea
regretting their inability to participate in
"There aro now," said Hon. J. A. Pickler,
of South Dakota, "561 barroom licenses in

that Is 107 more than is any honor to the peo

for it, and to remedy this evil they should
petition Congress, and a law would quickly
bo passed. The state of Maine sang the first
stanza of the Prohibition song, and it will not
be long before all forty-four states will take

Dows over the entire land. This
is the most magnificent sccno on
which it has been my privilege to gaze. No
where have I seen temperance people of all
creeds and colors, standing shoulder to
shoulder with the one idea that the saloon
must go. What we must have is a law. as the
law is all right and the law triumphs."
Resolutions were read and adopted, which
will be tent to Gen. Neal Dow. in honor of
his Mth birthday, and to Miss Francis
E. Willard. A petition was read by
Mrs. Mary E. Griffith, of the W. O. T. U. of
this city, which will bo sent to Congress, re

Loxdos, March 20. The meeting called for
this evening in Exeter Hall to celebrate
tho COth birthday of Neal Dow was
an Immense success. The hall was

and, instead of seating himself to rest, entered
cheerfully into tho adjacent woods.
Pepa, loft alone, felt a'strango disquiet.
A few moments later Pepe returned, bring
ing In his band a bunch of magnificent roses.
"Tnke them." he said to her. "I have
gathered them for you."
"What? You went for these only to pre
sent them to me?"
"Oh! but your hands are covered with
blood! Have you pricked yourself?"
"It is nothing. As theso bewitched roso

Truly compassionating, the girl fixed her
black eyes on Pepe. Then, without answer
ing a word, she becamo absorbed in contem

Pepe watched her in silence.
Somo minutes passed, when he ventured to
"Say, Pepa, don't the flowers please you?"
"Yes, very much; but"
"I do not understand why you aro so kind
Tho youth hesitated a littio before respond
ing, and then seating himself on tho bundle
of straw, at the side of Pepa, murmured:
"You see 1 know as little but I wish
you would not bo at enmity with me."
"But I am not."
"And that we should not quarrel any more.
Do you wish it?" -
Pepa did not reply, but her heart throbbed
with unusual violence, and tho agitated move
ments of her chaste bosom proclaimed the
state of her mind.
Pepe repeated his question in a tenderer
and more Insistent voice.
The poor girl felt an irresistable inclina
tion to cry, and responded in a scarcely audi
"Very good, we will not quarrel again."
Ho extended his hand with evident gladness.
With full heart and almost ready to break
into sobs, and with face covered with a divine
color, Pepa sweetly placed her littio hand in
the manly ono extended to receive It.
And without deliberate Intention on their
part thus they continued for a long time,
silently and affectionately clasping hands,
tasting the ineffable sensation ot that heart
beat of the tovo that uplifts, transforms, and
sanctifies all things.
And it seemed to them that the bundle of
straw which served them for a seat exhaled
the blandest perfumes; that the field flowers
which surrounded them were more vivid in
colors, had more gracful iorm. and that the
thousand sounds which tho adjacent wools
sent to tbem, and wnieh they hod so o.ten
heard, had tiia: evening so.aLih.u-: soft and
packed to its utmost capacity and
the greatest enthusiasm was manifested
by the audience. On the walls were hung
extracts from the writings of Mr. Dow, while
over tho organ the British and American
Dags were displayed. Speeches wero made
by Lady Somerset, Miss Frances Willard. Sir
Wilfred Lawson and Louise Ormlston-Chant,
all of whom highly eulogized Gen. Dow.

SENATORS TALK ON TARIFF,
Interviews With Leading Democrats nnd
Republicans on Probable Party Action.
Senator Morrill, one of the lending Republi
can members of the Finance Committee, sold
yesterday, when questioned as to the attitude
of the Republican members to the tariff bill as
reported, said: "We were not allowed to vote
on the bill, and It remains, therefore, a meas
ure which ha3 not gone through tho usual
process of majority and minority report. Tho
bill is not a committee measure."
Senator Mandcrson declared that tho action
of the committeo on tho bill was unpre
cedented. He had never known of nny tariff
measure which had not been regularly
submitted with a majority and minority re
port. It was a measure now that could lie
and would be vigorously opposed all alone
tne Hue, as tno r.epuuiican members intended
to have thorough debate on every Hue in tho
bill, not getting it in the committee.
He thought it was not at all certain that a
tariff measure would pass. "If after several
months' debate, say until midsummer, the
Senate should reject tho bill, it 13 quite likely
that the whole question would go over until
next session," declared the Senator, and then
added in n sarcastic tono: "I don't believe
President Cleveland, after bis pxperienco last
Summer, will care to have another extra ses
sion on his hands."
So far as Senator McPherson's attitude was
concerned, Senator Manderson thought his
remarks were a 'declaration of dependence
and not of independence. The New Jersey
Senator did not seem to have the courage of
When asked whether tho Republican mem
bers were likely to obstruct tho income tax,
Senator Manderson expressed the belief that
they would not go to extremes. Tho steering
committee might outlino a course of action,
or it might be left to a Republican caucus.
Eitherof these might act within a short time.
The Nebraska Senator seemed to think that
McPherson's declaration regarding the income
tax would strengthen the enemies of that
measure, and therefore that the chances of de
feating it wero very fair.
Senator Higglns, of Delaware, said it was
too early to predict now just what the Repub
lican Senators would do, but he asserted that
it was their business to get all they could and
that they proposed to get it. He was not con
fident of Democratic defection, but declared
that would be just so much help if it came.
Senator Ransom, of South Carolina, held
to the view that tho measure would receive
Eretty solid Democratic support. "If," said
o "I find any sections In tho bill which I do
not approve, most certainly I shall oppose
them, but I think all Senators on the Demo
cratic side will endeavor to settle these little
differences, rather than hold out against the
A southern Senator, who holds' somewhat
protectionist views but does not air them,
said pretty plainly that he for one intended
to get for his state just as much as was ob
tained for any other southern state, and
named two articles which he said wero the
leading products of his state, and on which the
removal of the tax would be a very serious
matter. Another southern Democratic Sena
tor echoed similar views rather more mildly,
but in a way to suggest that all might not be
lovely at the finish.
Senator Turpie thought tho bill would be
passed with but little delay.

10.55 o'clock this evening.
lajos, or Louis Kossuth, ex-governor of
Hungary, was bom April 21, 1602, at Monok
Zemplin, Hungary. Hi3 father was a small
land-owner and belonged to tho nobility.
When Kossuth was 27 years of age he took
bis seat In the national diet of Presburg as
representative of a mognate, being tho agent
of the Countess Szapary. His action in pub
lishing reports of the proceedings of this as
sembly led to their suppression and eventu
ally to hl3 prosecution for high treason,
tho government being determined not to
allow reports of parliamentary debates to bo
circulated in Hungary. He was sentenced in
1833 to four years' imprisonment. He was
liberated, however, after having been in
prison about a year and a half, under an act
of amnesty. '
In 1811 he becamo editor of tho Hirlap, a
newspaper published at Pesth. In March,.
181S, Kossuth entered Vienna with a deputa
tion to urge the claims of his country upon
tho Austrian government and returned to
Presburg a3 minister of flnanco
Eventually tho Hungary diet was dissolved
and a new diet was summoned for July 2,
and by tbis diet Kossuth was created Gov
ernor of Hungary. He held that post during
the civil war of 18iS-'4fl, and after the Hun
garians had been crushed bytheaidof the
Russians, Kossuth was compelled to retire to
Turkey and reached Schumla with 5,000 men.
Austria nnd Russia wanted Turkey to give
up Kossuth and the rest of the refugees, but
through the intervention of England and
Franco the demand was refused and the late
Sultan removed the refugees to Kutahia in
Asia-Minor, where they remained prisoners

Kossuth, who was warmly received in
America, mode a tour ot the United States In
1851, agitating in favor of Hungary. He
then returned to England, where he resided
some years, occupying himself with writing
for newspapers and in delivering lectures
against the house of Hapsburg. In Novem
ber, 1861, he published In an Italian news
paper a long letter setting forth the situation
in Hungary and urging tho Italians to com
mence war against Austria, with the view of
enabling the Hungarians to assert themselves
against that power. In 18C6, after the clcwi
of the war of that year, he issued an in
flammatory address to the Hungarians, ad
vising them to reject the concessions offered
by Emperor Francis Joseph. Since April,
1875. he has been living in an unpretending
dwelling near Turin, and in November, 1873,
he lost his rights as a Hungarian citizen.
For a number of years past Kossuth has been
in straightened circumstances, persistently
refusing pecuniary assistance, and depending
almost entirely upon the proceeds of hi3 pen.
It was feared that if the patriot died before a
reconciliation was effected with the house of
Hapsburg that serious disturbance would
take place in Hungary.
Kossuth's end was extremely painf uL Ho
showed signs of consciousness until the last.
He expired in the arms of bis son, and died
pressing the hand of the Hungarian deputy
Karoly. The members of his family and a
few of his intimate friend: stood around the
bedside of the expiring patriot.
Nothing has been settled in regard to the
details of the funeral. The municipal authori
