PROBABLY A SUICIDE.
Supposed to be Alfred Miller of Jackson,
An unidentified man supposed to be
Alfred Millei a merchant tailor of
Jackson, Mo., was found in the woods
Friday morning near Pittsburg Stat
ion, I1L, under circumstances which
point 6trongly towards suicide.
The body was found by a boy nam
ed Sullivan, who had been clambering
around the bluffs in search of per
simmons, when he espied at a distance
down the hillside a human figure with
its arm thrown about a sapling.
Curious, he walked up to the person,
and was horrified to find the badly
decomposed remains of a man.
The boy summoned aid and the body
and belongings of the man were con
veyed to Belleville. The man's coat,
vest and revolver were found on the
hillside a few feet above the corpse.
It is supposed that the man shot
himself and rolled down the hillside,
stopped himself in his decent by
clutching at the tee.
In the pockets of the clothing were
several business cards bearing the
name and address given above. The
body is at Belleville awaiting identi
fication. The Republicans Have Congress.
The splendid victory which the Re
publicans have gained in the election
of Congress is fully as gratifying as
the triumph which has been won in the
choice of President. It is, of course,
well-known that the contest for Con
gress was much harder than that for
the higher office. Many "anti-imperialists"
who voted for President Me
Kinley on the finance issue voted for
Democratic members of the House of
Representatives so as to tie his hands
on the Philippine policy. Men like
Charles Francis Adams, who detested
Bryanism so far as it related to na
tional repudiation, and thus support
ed the Republican ticket for President,
accepted the Bryanite policy of with
drawing from the Philippines at the
earliest possible moment, and cast
their ballots for Democratic Congress
men. Thus it happened that the con
test for Congress was severe for the
Republicans. Thus, too, the victory
is especially pleasing. Ordinarily, of
course, the party which carries the
presidency elects the nouse of Repre
sentatives which is chosen in that con
test. There have been only two ex
ceptions to this rule since parties were
founded on the present basis. One of
these was in 148, when the Whigs,
who won the President,-Zachary Tay
lor, lost the House of Representatives.
The other was in 1870, when the Re
publican President, Rutherford B.
Hayes, was confronted by a Demo
cratic House at the outset in his term,
and the Democratic majority in the
House was increased in the election
which occurred in tha middle of his
term. There were peculiar obstacles
against the Republicans in the can
vass which has just ended, and the
triumph is a matter for profound grat
ification throughout the country.
Republican policy, as already out
lined on all the great issues, will lie
carried out. The gold standard act
of March 14, l'.klO. will be strengthen
ed in the one or two points in which it
needs strengthening. A sensible army
act will bo passed. The rebellion in
the Philippines, which has btsen con
tinued for electioneering purposes,
will now quickly come to an end. A
settlement will be reached on the Phil
ippine issue which will be satisfactory
to the majority of the Filipinos, and
meet the approval of the American
people. The policy which has brought
prosperity to the United States at
home -and which has advanced the
country's credit abroad will be con
tinued. The stamp of popular ap
proval has been given to the Republi
can administration, and to the Repub
lican majority in Congress, and the
good work which both have been do
ing and attempting to do will now be
carried to a triumphant conclusion.
American political sanity has receiv
ed a new and striking exemplification
by the victory in the congressional
canvass. The American, in every
part of the world in which he is found,
will have a new reason to be proud of
his country. Globe-Democrat.

SIX WOMEN OF
Hiey Are Americans, With Two Ex
ceptions, and Their Fortunes J
Aggregate Half a Eiihon.
There are six rich women who de
serve to be placed up near the top of
the list of the world's great milliona
ires. This Is a really significant fact.
It was not so long ago that woman
had no legal rights, and therefore
couldn't hold property. Nowadays a
woman may rejoice In having undis
puted control of all her wealth. This
is something she owes to the much
abused legislators. Even pagan coun
tries nowadays concede her right to
Everyone knows who the world's six
tichest men are LI Hung Chang. John
D. Hock feller, the young Duke of West
minster. Won Qua, Cecil Rhodes and
Albert Belt but it is doubtful if more
than ten persons can name the six wo
men of the world who are the Queens
of wealth. Here they are and the to
tal of their fortunes:

The fortune of Hetty Green is vari
ously estimated. Phe has been credit
ed by one authority with $5.flu0,004.
The above figure of ScO.OiW.OOO is proba
bly approximately correct.
Irfrlora Cousino, of Santiago. Chill,
heads the list of enormously wealthy
women. She has two hund;v! millions
of dollars. She is "getting on." as folks
say in this country, in years, and al
though possibly near the half century,
is still remarkably beautiful, and ap
pears more youthful than do many wo
men who have spent their thirty years
in those gayeti?s which tend to ago
Senora Cousino lives and spends her
money without regard to public opin
ion, which, however, is not supposed
to be censorious in Chili, especially to
one fo generous. She would think lit
tle of giving avay a million to any one
she might fancy.
Her houses are finer than any pal
aces anywhere, and she is re:i!ly a
queen without assuming to be one. Her
coal lands alone pay her JSrt.OOO a
month, or nearly a million a year.
A CHARITABLE HEIUESS.
Miss Helen Gould possesses a fortune
which is so large that she is unable
to figure how large It is. She lives in
solemn grandeur in a magnificent
house on Fifth Avenue, in Xew York.
The residence is magnificently furnish
ed, and a big conservatory is one of
the features. An army of servant:?
preside over the establishment, and a
French chef looks out for toothsome
dainties for Miss Gould. The money
she possesses was made in the railroad
Miss Gould is a student, and a busi
ness woman as well, strange a3 this
may seem. She is fon.l of clever per
sons, and the receptions she and her
youngest brother, Frank, give are fea
tures of Gotham society. She is a Greek
and Latin scholar, versed in law and a
skilful hand at embroidery.
Charity is wifh her almost a hobby,
and a iarge part of her great income is
oevoted to charitalle work and to the
alleviation of the woes of the unfor
tunate. A UICII WOMAN ABROAD.
Few America! s living abroad are as
popular as the beautiful Mis. George
who iii:ik" her home in Paris.

Hetty Green, the richest woman in
the United States, though over sixty
years of nge. is as spry as a young
girl. In fact her vitality counts in a
measure for her success in handling
her vast properties. Of Quaker stock,
she was born in Rhode Island. Her
$50,000,000, more or less, was largely in
herited, although by her own shrewd
methods she added much to it.
For years Mrs. Gieen has attired her
self in a plainly made black dress and
a faded bonnet to match. Thus armed
she could go to a trust company, draw
$1,000,000 in $10,000 bills and carry it in
an old satehel without the slightest
fear of being robbed.
Her daughter, Sylvia, is a good-looking
young woman with a great deal of
common sense. She has been courted
a great deal by ambitious young men.
but has cared for none of them. Mrs.
Green some time ago announced that
the successful man must be poor but
honest, and as a result about five hun
dred applications for preferment were
received by her. It is needless to add
that none of them received any encour
agement to speak of.
A GREAT MUSICIAN.
The talented young woman of this
sextet is Miss Rockfeller. who is a
brilliant musician. She can play any
thing from an accordion to a piano but
the harp is her favorite. Miss Rock
feller has recently entered society, but
she does not let her fondness for the
gay world interfere with her Christian
duties, and with all of her many en
gagements finds time for a great deal
of church work.
Miss Rothchilds, whose very name is
a. svnonvm for wealth, is a member of
the" "great"" European family or Kotn
childs. Village after village is owned
by her. Although, of course, she has
hundreds of agents to collect her rents
and look ufter her property she is a
thorough business woman and spends
two or three hours every day in going
over her accounts with her head stew
ards. She is up to date, too, and has seen
much of the world.
Miss Rothchilds is generous to a fault
and the sums which she gives to char
ity are alawst too fabulous to be credible.

Then, too, I stopped.
I have not speculated since 18T3. I
lost my money in the panic which was
caused by the Chicago fire in 1871 and
I made it again in the panic which
followed the Cooke failure in 1873. I
formed a partnership with John P. Bell
in Philadelphia after that, and the ex
press terms of our agreement were that
the firm should not speculate for itself.
We made a good deal of our money
out of the speculators instead of spec
ulating ourselves. A good portion of
it, however, we made in business, trad
ing for business men.
I luive been asked how I made my
money if I didn't speculate.
I didn't begin life as the typical bare
foot boy on the towpath. I had some
money when I start d not a great deal
but some. I besan as a note broker
in the days when Philadelphia mer
chants used to receive notes from their
customers for goods they sold.
I did sweep out iry own oCice for a
time, but I was successful in my busi
ness, and after a little time I arose to
the dignity of having a boy to do tho.?e

THE FIRST VENTURE.
It was when I was a boy at home.
There was an auction store in the town
and I used to go there sometimes and
listen to the auctioneer. One day I
noticed a lot of soap. It was the same
kind of soap we used at home and we
bought it from a grocer around the cor
ner. It occurred to me thai I might
be able to make some money out of
that soap. I went around to the gro
cer and asked him how much he paid
for that kind of soap. He told me
nine cents a pound. I asked him if he
would buy some ircm me for eight, and
he said he would. So I hur.g around
the auction room until the soap was
put up. There was considerable bid
ding, and I finally tought the lot of it
for six cents a pound.
