Lillian ax a Moomer.
The following from the New York Star
is interesting, as it pertains to the emo
tional actress, Miss Lillian Lewis, who a
few years ago was one season under the
management of the late C. C. Knell and
became quite well known in Rock Island:
Some actresses take In
literature, some to collecting brie a brae
ana a lew to drink, but Lillian Lewis has
the most novel fad of them all. She is
an Oklahoma boomer. More than that,
she bas been down into Indian territory;
penetrated the Oklahoma countrv nn
horseback, piloted by the late notorious
Belle Starr; staked her claim, and plant
ed a long haired cowboy on it, with a
wincnester repeating rille and a bootleg
full of bowie knives.
Miss Lewis, up to a couple of years
ago, was pretty well known to New York
theatre goers as a handsome, well formed
young woman, witb a good voice and at
tractive stage presence and considerable
ability. Then she dronned out nf aitrht

I T r .

She is now visitinir her mint Mrs AK
bott, at No. 121 Waverley place, where a
reporter found her yesterday afternoon .
"Yes, I suppose I'm a boomer," she
aid with a little laugh that shook her
blonde bangs like a western zephyr
through the sage brush. Then she got
enous. "itsjuat the grandest country
u me wunu. im going to live there
when I'm not on the road. It's too love
ly" "How about Belle Starr?"
"Oh, bow did VOU hear nhnnt thatf"
This with a deprecatory giggle and shrug
oi me suouiuers. --jjui sue is really not
so bad as she is painted. She called on
meat Fort Smith. I was at the hotel
one day looking out of the window when
op rode a woman at full speed. She slid
down from her horse as easily as a man
would, banded the bridle to the stable
boy and then stepping up to a bootblack
put up her dainty boots and had them
polished just like a man. She wanted to
talk with me about the Younger broth
ers, tbe three brothers sent to prison for
life in the Nortufleld bank robbery. I
was a Minnesota woman and knew them
through their friends. Belle Starr
claimed to have been married to Cole
YoungeT, the eldest brother.
"Senator Washburn, of Fort Smith,
who represents the district in the Arkan
sas legislature, and is a full blooded
Cherokee Indian, had put the Idea of pre-
empting a claim In my head, and when I
tola Belle Starr about it she said she
would be my guide. Without stopping
to think it over much, I took her at her
word, and the next day, accompanied by
my brother, we started for Oklahoma. It
is the grandest country in the world .
We went 200 miles on horseback, and
camped out every night, and had a right
Belle Starr was a character. She
swore and smoked and talked slang just
like a man, but she was kind-hearted and
a splendid guide, and she couldn't have
been kinder to me if I had been her sis
ter. "I picked ont a 'claim.' 160 acres, on
the Red Fork of tbe Arkansas river, be
tween Oklahoma and Sapulpa, and then
I put a man there to hold my claim when
the country was opened up, which 1 knew
ouldn't be long. It has cost me con
siderable money already, but I don't care.
It is tbe most beautiful place in the
Here tbe recollections of the wild and
woody country vercame Miss Lillian,
and she clasped her hands tragically and
' Oh. but there'll be blood there before
it is settled. I was afraid of it, and it is
bound to come."
Tbe actress likes . everything in the
Southwest that can be named except the
cooking of tbe Indians in the territory.
That she declares the worst on earth.
She would have starved on her booming
expedition if it hadn't been for the culi
nary skill of Belle Starr.
As a memento of her trip Miss Lewis
carries a pair of tame wolves lean, ugly,
sneaking fellows who slink behind her
chair and watch tbe visitor with a hungry,
green glint in their eyes. They have an
aversion to poodle dogs, and consider
them joint prey, which makes it rather
embarrassing for Miss Lewis when she
leads them out to get a breathing spell.

The quantity of alcoholic apirits extracted
in France by distillation from trine lias been
gradually diminishing, owing to the effects
of phylloxera and mildew mi the vines, and
in consequence the production of spirits from
molasses, beet root juice, grape skins and
from farinaceous substances, especially maize
and potatoes, shows an increase. The consul
general of the United States at Paris states
that the spirits produced in Frasfr-e are now
for the greater part distilled from molasses.
