The Zkmoerat-Gatette tells of a peculiar
ease, wherein the coroner wai called to
act, at follows:
Coroner Bawden has held many in
quests in his time, but one held a few
oiRfcts ago was perhaps the most inter
eating he has ever held. A well known
citizen was found in a livery stable in an
apparently lifeless coudition. The liv
eryman notified a few gentlemen friends
of the discovery and they summoned the
coroner, who, bv the way, was only a few
blocks distant. In a short time a jury
was empanelled, and the inquest proceed
toss begun. I he moon shone brightly
through the barn window down upon the
face of him, the cause of whose death
the jury had met to determine. A few
or toe gentlemen present knew the man
and had for years; some of the
jury knew him, and so did the
coroner. The jury eiamioed the body
and concluded that the man was dead
drunk. The testimony of witnesses was
taken and the jury returned a verdict in
accordance with the facts. The verdict
of the jury was put in the outside pocket
of the coat of the deceased (?) and the
coroner and jury left the place. In a lit
tie while the gentlemen who composed
the lury returned to seo whether the dead
had come to life. They took hold of him
ana shook him. lie was far from being
a corpse. The gentlemen raised him to
his feet; they expressed their sorrow at
finding him there. The citizen was glad
they had found him. He took them out
and treated them to oyster stews and
then went home.
The next morning while his wife was
oruBning nis domes, sne discovered a
document banging out of bin overcoat
pocket. She took it and upon unfolding
it was startled to find it was the verdict
of a coroner's jury and her husband
named In it as the deceased! At the bot
torn of the document was the coroner's
signature. The astonished wife at once
called her husband and demanded an ex
planation. As yet no explanation has
oeen given. The wife, however, is haDDV
in the thought that she is not yet a

The best entertainment of the season is
to be presented at Harper's theatre on
Thursday evening of this week, when the
famous actor and comedian, Mr. Joseph
Murphy, i9 to appear in his great comedy
drama, "The Keiry Oow,' of which the
Cleveland Plain-Dealer y a:
F.ed. Ms.sden's drama, "The Kerry
Cow," was presented at the Academy of
Music last evening to a large and demon
strative audience. Mr. Joseph Murphy,
as Dan O'Hara, is the same old Joseph
Murphy, a faithful delineator of Irish wit,
Irish manliness and Irish patriotism. The
play was splendidly mounted; the black
smith scene especially being true to life.
Mr. Murphy is an accomplished blacksmith
and horseshoer, as was evinced by his
skill in providing footwear for Valentine
Hay's horse on the iitage.

A MARVELOUS CHANGE.
A Jerney City Woman Who was Once Black
Is Now a Pure White.
A full white negro or Indian woman has
been discovered in Jersey City. She called
at the City hospital with a negro boy, who
had been playing in the street and had fallen
and sprained his shoulder. She was a fine
looking woman, and was very well dressed,
Her skin was white aud her complexion was
perfect The boy was dressed in ragged
clothes, and his face was very black. Warden
Osborn asld her whether she employed the
boy. She said, "Oh, no, he is my grandson."
This aroused the warden's curiosity, and he
asked, "How is it that you are white and be
is black r
"Indeed, Tm no white trash," she replied.
'Tm an honest colored woman, I am."
"Your hair is straight," said the warden.
The woman took down her hair and showed
that it was kinky. She said her name was
Mrs. Sisco aud her husland was black. She
was black herself eighteen years ago, she
said, and had been gradually turning white
until a year ago, when the last trace of black
disappeared from her body. She bad not
been sick a day, she said. She took her
grandson home with her after his shoulder
A Sun reporter called on her last night.
He found her just as Warden Osborn des
cribed, a fine looking, well built woman,
with a negro accent, kinky hair, negro chil
dren, negro husbard, but with a skin as white
as any white woman ever had. She said she
was a full blooded Indian. Her father was
a Hoosan and her mother a Mohawk. She
was bom in this state and lived on Mulberry
street in this city until 1801, when she first
began to turn white. Then she moved to
Jersey City. She was as dark as colored
people in general are, she said, when she
married Sain Sisco, a negro. In 1851 a white
pot appeared on her chin, and after being
there a month it disappeared. In 1S06 several
white spots appeared on her neck, but they
also disappeared. In 1ST3 another spot ap
peared on her chin, and it stayed there. Other
spots appeared on her neck and body. These
spots kept getting larger, until her whole
face and the upper part of her body turned
white. Finally, about a year ago, the last
black spot on her body disappeared, and since
then there has not been a blemish on her skin.
In all that time she had only been sick
twice, she said. Once she had a cancer, and
the other tune she bad trouble with her lungs.
She had never had a doctor give her anything
for her skin. She had had three children (all
of them were with her while she was talking).
They are ail black, and their children are
black, too. Mrs. Sisco said she was 55 years
old, as near as she could remember. Her
daughter, who is 21, said she could remember
when her mother was a black woman. "She's
got awful pale lately, though," she added.
Mr. Sisco said 'that when he married his
wife she was as black as he was. He didnt
know what had turned her white. It -didnt
seem to interest him much. Dr. Pyle, who has
attended the family for fifteen years, said be
remembered when he first called on her. It
was for a trouble with her lungs. She was
black then. A little while afterward a white
spot appeared on her upper lip. It was round,
but it gradually spread, until it looked like
an irregular patch of white skin. Other spots
appeared on her throat and breasts, aud they
continually spread untii they ran into each
other. FinaKy one band turned completely
white, and the entire arm followed.
By this time nearly all of her face bad
turned whita. There were no eruptions on
her skin, he said; the white skin was no
coarser or thicker than the black. If any
thing, the white part was softer to the touch.
About a year ago, he thought, the last black
spot disappeared and she was perfectly
white. She always had good health, he said,
except for a slight lung trouble and a cancer.
She asked him to presenile for her to s top the
change in the color of her skin, but as she
was not inconvenienced at all by it he did
not do it. lie lh Might it was merely the dis
appearance of tu Coloring matter of the skin.
Such cases were rare. He had never heard
of a case before where the whole body
changed color. Both Mrs. Sisco and her hus
band are in excellent general health. New

leather we have found that resists tbe action
of tbe dry atmosphere where gas is kept
burning constantly, and we have all our val

when the covers come off. This keeps tbe
lids and backs together for twelve or fifteen
years. Then we keep the best books that are
not so bound in closed cases, and that saves
them soma But there is no way of preserv
