sr. Loris, Oct. tf. The following curd
from .las. O. Churchill, father of thu Ions
missing Miry Cliui'chlll, is given to the
public tLia i-veniti-:
To THK I'CBi.ic: After a auipense of
thre.' montiit I am this morning in recipt of
a letter fpm my datij-'htflr Mry Churchill,
m ii ed fr. in :t distant city.
An all of the papers all over the country
have acunrd'-iJ me every facility within their
power, and in many cases at great expense
in my learch, notwithstanding the injunction
imposed by my daughter to withhold from
publication the content, of this letter, a
sense: of duty which I owe to my many
friends impeU me to at least give its pur
port which I herewith attach:
-My Father I write to let you kuo
that I urn alive and well. I am not on the
-taL'e, as you supposed, nor have I eloped.
On! bow could you think so, wbeti I cared
so little for uentlemeu's society.
I am earning my own living honestly,
Teach iny little sister and darling little bro
ther to think kindly of their sister
Si. Luuis, Ociober JS.S3.
Jas. o. Cucki
The letter above is a correct coi of that
sent by M:uy Churchhill with the exception
of the following postscript, the addition to
which here ra tkes the letter complete':
I. !. l'lctse do not publish this. Gad
bless you all. I think that this will be
mailed t ro in Indianapolis. M.
T(ie letter was written ou one aide of a
sheet of coajinvui no,e-paper, and is beyond
ipi stio i, Mr. Ciiuichlii says, in the band -wr.
tin;: of his daughter. Why 'the should
w rile so f(iniul and ambiguous a letter
lie (.ould not understand. Sue, beiug a
':irl, would naturally write a long andeffec
iionale letter, and that she did ual is evid
ence to his mind that the letter was dictated
ky uu older bead.
Tti is leads to tbe tnougbt that tba cirl Is
p.ubably held by parties who will later on
open negotiations. There was nothing in
closed in lae letter, and its only mlsion
seem to be to let tier father know she is
Mary Churchill was last seen iu St. Louis,
so far as known, about i p. m., Suuday,
Au;ut 19th, standing at the gate of her
parents' residence, "o. 2737 Morgan street,
looking up and down the street, as if wait
ing aud watch mi: for some ooe. Miss
Ciitirchill ww dressed in a thin white lawn
dress with black polka dots, with a plain
flowing skirt and tight alt-eves. She wore
a smaii colitfr and lace kerchief about her
neck. When her parents arrived at home
from a drive at 7 o'clock the yooug lady had
disappeared. She bad token no clothing
whatever. Even her hats were left behind.
On Monday nL'ht when the mysterious
abence had begun to cause tbe
darkest forbodings, Col. Church
ill, tbe father, invoked tbe aid of the
police. A most complete' description of
tbe missing girl was giveji. The attire in
which she was last seen wag described ac
curately. She was tive feet three inches in
height, straight and well developed,
notably erect iu carriage, shoulders re
markably square, features large but haud
sorae, light brown hair, blue eyes, oval
face, and wore her hair in bangs. Sbe
would be 17 years old next January, but
was well matured for ber age. The des
cription was as full as it is possible to make
them. The only taiug sure was that she
bnd left the house through the re or en
trance. Tbe detccl.vc force, as usual, went
to work ou theories that were in uo wise
i x msed by the habits or training of the
girl. Then the crack aime to the front.
Mary Churchill was seen by all kinds of
people at all kinds of places. An early
ice man saw bar iu a hack, a 'bus driver
saw her on the bridge, a crazy man led the
way to where sbe was buried, her tbroat
cut from ear to ear, a railroad brakeuian
saw her walkiug uu the Uack ner Caron
delet, a drummer srw ber in an opera
chorus in an Lantern city, tbe body of a
suicide in Kansas City waa temporarl y
identified as ber's, u woman saw ber walk
ing on the streets after nightfall heavily
veilad, she was iu Canada, she was ou the
stage, sbe was in a convent, she was mar
ried and living happily with her busdand.
she was in disiress in Chicago, she wa
teachiug music in a southern city. All
these "clews" and a huudred moro were
given and provedsjirthlcss. Her descrip
tion was telegraphed to every comer
of the country. Her photographs
were distributed broadcast, but
n tilling came of it. The case excited
more comment than unytbiu? since the ab
duction of Charlie Koss. Every father
a!id mother in the land was on tho
lookout for the missing daughter of
heart-broken parents, The detective
were baffled. Our policemen In plain
clothes, called detectives, gave up the
tiht after a week's sHjn::lous research in
St. Louis. Then uamethe El Paso "clew."
For nearly two weeks the identity of tho
couipaniou of Prof. Caldwell's flightwasin
doubt. Our zealous correspondents and
amateur detectives, spurred on by hopes of
large rewards, set veil to keep up the cruel
delusion. At lust the Mexico
theory was exploded, and the mystery
was deeper thau ever. From day to day
do tidincs. Colonel Churchill, at tbe end
of his resources, then undertook to try tbe
effect of money. Tho reward
was increased sevaral days ago to
$V)Q, and now the return is iu and thou
sands of hearts will beat responsive to
the happy omotlon -of a mother who will
soon press to bet distracted heart a child
mourtied as dead.

trtAllSd A MARCH.
How a Miaer'a Wife Ciroumvented His
Nkw Haven, Conn., Oct. 29. John
Newton's broad acres embrace much of the
township of Ledyard Centre. Now tbatthe
man Is dead tbe house in which he lived
will remain untenanted. The neighboring
farmers tell stories of the old man's shrewd
ness in lending money and shaving notes,
but with all his smartness and bis success
iu pilin; up some $.50,000 in the hard cornor
of a wilderness, bis executors find that
many of his mortgages cover laud so poor as
to bo hardly worth the paper they are writ
ten on. Tbe first money be earned when
he was a boy for chopping wood in winter
in a pine swamp he put into a New London
bank, and It remained there untouched to
his dying day. Wbeu last he looked it up
it had increased to nearly $3,000. He bad a
wife, but he spent little money upon ber,
and it was to save HX) that be married her.
Her name was Charity Norman. Fifty
years ago Charity Norman was a
of 30. In those days country tailoresses used
to go about from bouse to house with their
work-bags, to stock up the men's
underwear for tbe winter. Old
Col. Heptbauiel Newton was a
merry Yankee who, unlike his son John,
loved jolly company aud good clothes, and
Charity used to be called into his bouse
semi annually, and many a blue coat with
silver buttons did sbe make for Col. New
ton. While she was there one fall Col.
Newton died. Everything was changed
then at the Newton homestead. Charity
kindly lent a band Iu tb bouse, and pioved
to be such a skillful housekeeper that John,
who was Col. Newton's only child, per
suaded her to stay and help biaj carry on
the farm. She milked his cows, weeded
his onions, made bis butter, and peddled
his produce In Norwich for years. She was
a mine of wealth and faithful to John, but
in an ev:l hour he took it into his head he
wanted to get rid of her. Then
CHARITY'S BIG BROTHER
stepped iu and threatened a breach of
promise suit for ?HO0 damages if John did
not marry his sister. John, after hang,
ing back a little, led her to tho attar rather
thau part with the money. lie waa tony
then and she was thirty-eht. Mrs. New
ton now says that he bought her only one
thing during all tbeir marriage Itfe, and
that was a pair of shoes a few days ago.
When John Newton knew that his life
waa nearly euded, being unable to get off
his bed, he sent for a Pennsylvania relative
to whom he intended to give his property,
to come and help him make his will. The
man came, and while Charity waa busy with
ber cooking she beard cuoujrh of tbeir talk
to convince her that tbe poor mortgages
were to be given to ber as ber share and tbe
cash was going to the Pennsylvania cousin.
She resolved ou a bit of strategy. Going up
stairs she pulled
AN OLD HAIR TRUNK
out from under tbe eaves, and drawing It
up before the garret window examined ils
contents. It had been John Newten's pri
vate sav -- ink aud safe deposit vault for
years. U cuiiiuiucd $600 In oW gohl coin,
