Sioix CITY, la, Jan. 23. A woman
nearly 70 years old, who lias been a public
c haracter for several years, yesterday de
clared that she has been defrauded of a
fortune of $2.000,(0. nt.r father w as Gen
eral Robert Patter? on, of Pennsylvania,
who served in the Mt xitan and civil wars.
She was herself the heroine of one of the
most thrilling incidents in American his
tory. An intiruatioi of this stran-je his
tory having gotten a iroad a call Was made
at the old woman's 1 ome. She has lived
for six years in the most fashionable quar
ter of the city alone, in a woodshed owned
by a charitable titizi n. Lately the county
has supported her, and she has been sick.
Hoes to W.r at Sixteen.
To the visitor the 'voman said she w as
the daughter of General Patterson, notable
in two wars; that she was married joung
to Colonel Johnson; that when the Mexi
can war broke out he was only I, and
that she followed h r husband against his
will to Mexico, get; ing aboard the trans
port and hiding while the vessel was Ht
Charged at Chapnltepee.
She then told th following remarkable
story of the charge at Chapultepec: '-Nobody
thought of us in the whirlwind of
the battle, and Betty Taylor and I lietty
was the daughter of General Zark Taylor
-I$etty and I agreed that we'd charge,
too. And we did The first man on tt,e
wall was Major Vin Dorn. He caught a
flag and leaped on the wall, calling to his
men to follow. Tl e flag was shot out of
his band and so were five more. As the
last one fell I standing below him. I
caught it in mv hand and climbed up, I
never knew how. The bullets sang around
my head and tin flag was shot full of
holes, but 1 was u vcr touched.
Knew She Must Go Home Then.
"After the l;a; : ' was over my husband
aaid I must n i -n to the north. 1 was
afraid of him fru.n the way be spoke, and
knew that 1 mi;-t go. So 1 left him. After
the war I lived in the north. 1 lost my
husband and nt last my father died. He
was worth $15,ow,!00 when he died and if I
had got my share of his estate I would
have had 3,000.o ). But I didn't get it.

neighbor in the next block has brought in
for me to eat."
THE SENATORIAL "BIG FOUR."
Comment on the Loration of the Demo
Washington, Jan. 23. The longer the
situation is considered the more it becomes
apparent that tl e selection of Chicago as
the place for holding the next national
Democratic convention was the work of
the senatorial Big Four," Gorman, Hill,'
Brlce and Bart'cur. There is some feejing
about what . -thwestern Democrats call
"the combnu " and at a meeting of the
leaders from innesota, Wisconsin, Iowa
and Michigan jesterday, it is stated that
an agreement was reached to make a
united effort at the Chicago convention to
prevent the c mbine" from controlling
the presidential nomination.
Tammany to Re Much on Hand.
While the talk was going on Thursday
night in the cr inmittee during the ballot,
Bourk Cochrtn said that no city of
even 400,000 inhabitants could ac
commodate the next Democratic
national contention. Tammany alone
he declared -vould carry to the nest
convention 2,iOfi braves, and fully 3,000
Democrats from New York city would be
there. From New York state fully 5,000
men would go. making New York's repre
sentation nearly if not quire ll.'ilflmen.
Senator Vilas inferred from thK that this
army of men would go in the in. -rest of
Hill, and he inure warmly espoused the
cause of Milwaukee.

WALLOPED THE HORN BLOWERS.
A Charivari Party that fame to Grief
S:i:anto, Pa. .Jan. 23. John W. Ilollis
ter and Augi sta Stillman were married at
the home of the bride's parents in Forks
ton township. They went away and later
it was noised about the neighborhood that
they had returned, and were staying at the
house of A oner A. Hollister, the groom's
father. In the evening a dozen young men
of their acqu iintance marched in a hotly to
Hollister's house where Abe Hubbard began
to saw away on an old bass viol, while the
rest blew tin horns, beat pans, and rattled
cowbells unt il Mr. Hollister told them that
the couple v ere not in the house.
I.ont till Their Inatrnment.
They kept tip tbeir racket so long that
Mr. Hollist 'r invited the serenaders to
search the house from cellar to garret. They
rushed for t he door, left their instruments
on the porch, and Ix'gan to go through the
house. As soou as they were inside, the
three Hollisters gathered up the bells,
pans and horns and carried them to the
mill pond near by where they doopped
them through holes in the ice. While the
serenaders were hunting through the
house Alck Turn ball rau in and told
them that - he bride and groom were stay
ing at the house of the bride's father,
a mile and a quarter away.
Whipped but Swears Vengeance.
They reached the porch just as the Hol
listers retnred. The Hollisters are muscu
lar and tin y pitched into the serenaders
and pumn eled them, finally driving them
from the yard. The serenaders have sworn
vengeance against the Hollisters, and it is
feared in the neightiood that more trouble
will come jut of the fight.
War Amona- Fnri.
Many of the citizens of Vermont will re
member to have seen on one dollar bills of
the Windham County State bank a vignette
representing frogs fighting. This was en
graved to commemorate what Is known as
the Battle of Bullfrogs.
Many years ago, when the town of Wind
ham was newly settled, there was a very
dry season. There are two large ponds in
Windham, separated by a considerable
strip of land. Each of these ponds was in
habited by a large number of frogs.
The smaller pond dried np, and its in
habitants started in a body for the lower
and larger pond. They were met in the
intervening space by a party from the
lai-ger pond, and a fierce and long contin
ued battle ensued between the rival com
munities. The hideous clamor of the frogs during
this encounter attracted: the attention of
several farmers, who witnessed the strange
spectacle of bullfrogs engaged in a fierce
and deadly battle. The contest lasted
twelve hours, and nearly all the inhab
itants of the little town witnessed it. The
war is now one of the traditions of the
place. Youth's Companion.
I'eople to Avoid.
If I were an employer of men I shonld
avoid hiring any man who walks with both
hands in his trousers' pockets, and 1 should
hesitate employing a man who even keeps
one hand in his pocket as he walks. If my
business required that I should employ
women, no one of the sex who allowed her
dress train, be it long or short, to drag on
the sidewalk could find engagement
Oddly enough, all women abominate the
appearance of men walking with their
hands indolently pocketed, and most men
dislike the slovenly appearance of a dress
train sweeping the pavement, yet those
same men fail to feel the beam in their
own eyes, while none of the street sweep
ing train wearers think to compare their
own ugly habit with the disagreeable prac
tice of so many men. Detroit Free Press.
Waiting for the Rride.
A wedding ceremony was to take place
in one of the prominent churches. The
bridal party had not yet arrived, but was
momentarily expected, when a small boy
put in an appearance end gazed long and
curiously tip the main aisle.
"Humph," he muttered disdainfully, "I
don't see any."
"Don't see any what, boy?" asked an in
quisitive usher standing near.
"Don't see de rails, of course."
"Rails rails for what?" asked the usher,
in wonderment, as a small group gathered
around the boy.
"Why, for de bride's train to run on
see?" And the boy escaped, and there fol
lowed a stillness so dense you could have
heard a congh drop on the doorstep around
the corner. New York Herald. .
If the old lino democrats hadn't gone
back on Butler, he might have been gov
ernor of Massachusetts; likewise, if all
the good folks who are in bed with colds
would take Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup they
might be ont and happy.
When a person dies suddenly
now a days, the cause is at
tributed to heart failure. In
nine cases out of ten it is not
heart difficulty at all, but is due
to congestion of the lungs. Peo
p'e take cold, and the lungs
congest The rapidity with
which, this is . done is remark
able. A prominent citizen of
an interior town tookaRuesian
batb. last winter and emerging
from the bath house, put on a
light overcoat, and started to
walk home. He had progress
ed a little over half a block
when he fell and had to be
taken into an adjoining house
Medical aid was summoned,and
he barely escaped with his life,
and yet he was perfectly well
when he lefs the bath house.

lungs may congest under fav
