A not 11 k 11 Old Citizen Oonj,. Miss
Mury Springer, lisier to tho late Honry
Barringcr, a resident of Cairo for eighteen
years, died yoslorday nt her residonco in
l this city, ugod 70.
Tho decensod was n woman whoso hoart
hnrborod none of tho petty iqipulsci which
sow dissensions In society; but, modest
and unassuming, shrinking from tho gazo
of tho world nnd walking in tho shadow
of retirement, she scattered littlo kindness
es on each sldo of hor llfo-path whllo tko
light of kindly fortuno shown upon her,
and when dark dayicamo upon hor days
of trial nnd distross, in which sometimes
tho darkness was not illumiuatod by even

with u choerfuluess born of faith in tho
goodness of God, who nover fails to bring
good out of evil to, ut last, turn to tho
nnxtous eye of tho unfortunnto tho silver
lining of tho dark cloud of ndverso fato.
Her days woro lengthened boyond tho av
orago lifo of frail mortality, and, as sho
advancod towards, the end, hor rela
tives ono after another dropped'
into tho gravo until sho was loft
alono in the world lonely,, but not
doiolate, for kind friends, whoso hearts had
been baptitcd in tho fountain of charity
and kindness, sustained hot with hopeful
words' and "r'omovod from hor path many
of tho troubles which burden tho strong
nnd broak down tho weak. During forty
years sho was a dovoto worshipper at tho al
tar of tho Episcopal church,. and .ived the
life of n loyal Christian. In hor ipboro sho
was true to all tho obligations of duty;
ovon with littlo In her. grasp ner hand
oponod when charity asked for alms;
wronging no one, sho walked in the un
clouded light of faith, hopeful in tho dark

. Somo threo years go, ,tbo wlfoo Mr
Sbbllyf of this cky 'purchased Bomo" arti
cles of dry goods nt tho storo of (hp Into
Scott Wliito. Among them wasnn ordln
nry wtito linen handkerchief. Since its
purchase, the squaro of linen has been
usod for Its legitimate purpose, hai under
gone many washings, and in its bettor
days emerjrod from everv cltinnilnip vtth
out spot or blemish. Some weeks nso, the
handkerchief began to snow evldencos of
tho, constant use It bad been put to. The
thin thread hore, and there one or tw
small rents, anu several actual holes in the
texture, indicated that its dayi of useful
ness as a monchoir were numbered with
the past. It was. turned oyer to ono of
Mrs. Shelly'a little girls, who used it as a
slato cloth in ichoo). Yotterday morning
the little girl
WASHED THE tlAXDEIRCHIEr,
laid it, on a clean, whito ironing clotb,
and proceeded to smooth it out
with a common flat iron. Sho smoothed.
folded nnd pre J sod it, and on taking it up
discovered what sho supposod to bo tho ro-
mains of a stain. Sho did not look at it
very closely, but again washed tho hand-
korchiof, this timo taking particular palm
nun out tub stain.
She rinied nnd wrung out tho clotb, nnd
again Ironed It. What wore hor sons,
tlont to And tho stain brighter than boforoi
and to havo assumod the form nnd featuros
of a human face, tho faco of
A DEAUTlrUL WOMAN.
She ran with tho cloth to her parents, cry
ing, "toe what tho iron has mado on this
handkerchief." Mr. and Mrs. Shelly ex
amined it closoly, ns also tho iron, nnd
the cloth on which it was proised, but
there was no solution of tho mystery. Tho
handbcrchief was washed and re-washed,
but ovory effort failed to obliterate tho
picture, which loomed to havo bocomo a
part of tho texture of the llnon. Thoro ii
photographed upon tba;handkerchief with
remarkable distinctness, about half way
betweon' tho center And tone corner. A
lingular feature of tho picture ii that
although dliMnet at all times, when held
in tho ihadow of anything, away from tho
unobstructed light, tho eyes and oyobrows,
hair, lines of tho drois, etc., show much
plalnor than boforo., Tho features are
fine and regular, what may be termed
high-bred tho hair is waved back from
from tho forehead. The nock is exposed
and adorned with a necklaco. The bodice,
which shades off into indiitinetnon, is or
namontcd with laco, and a flower placod
rather to tho loft. A namo is written un
derneath, but this cannot bo deciphered.
How came tho picture on tho handkerchief,
is tho qucition which baffles all inquiry,
Tho mystery rofutos to bo Bolved. It has
boon suggested that tho face is
A SPIRITUAL PHOTOGRAPH.
Mrs. Sholley has examined all pictures
of friondi and rqlatlvos in her possession,
but finds nothing rosombling this picturo
nmong thorn. Tho affair has thrown our
