ONLY A WOMAN.
Coining Irom whence nu one knows,
and wandering aimlessly in tin-world,
one of tin- actors on the stage of life
lli-utlny from t lie footlights uiul per
haps from those lovt'il and iloiif ami
over whose hie hep sin might cast its,
shadow, landed troin :i steamboat at

ami Iiiiiki-. a stpnngei- among
-traiiyt'r. with tin canopy of heaven
loi' her eovep and the eold, damp
earth for her bed.
This woman, young, beautiful and
i dined, torn asundep from home and

finally overcome hy childbirth pains
she knocks at the door ot a lonely
cabin anil entpeats lop admittance.

The lads in the case caUim.' lor the

mystery, and all efforts to get a cleai'
statement Irom the woman have failed,
and her stury is so conllicting that we
can publish lint little of it.
One ol tin- name given is Kapali
Wiihlnig. ol Nashville. Tenn.
XccoidniL' to hep stopy, he cannot
stati just wlieie she hoarded the boat
or wheic she landed Irom it. Inn it is

How Nugents Started Business
When publishing a papep in 1812 ati
Mount Vernon, 111., on a second floor,
a stoic was opened in a. room under i
our otllce. The senior proprietor-came
up stairs and contracted for three
columns of space ,op twelve months
w ith locals eaeli week. He remarked
that it was a snap to yet into a town
where other business men did not adver
tise. This linn stapled on borrowed
capital. In tliiee yeai-s it had money
enough to statt two stores, oneinSe
dalia .ind oneinSt. Louis. It dissolv

Held for himself. Ilt-yon Nugent wan
the man w ho made the contract and
who. until his death, was a member of
H. Nugent Hros.. the great St. Louis
house. We must add that some of the
