The fIlous gun works of 1ierr Krupp,

queathed to his eldest daughter. Bertha
Krupp. iBy those who are( familiar with
the l'ssen factories they are valued in
the neighborhood of $75,000,000. Such a
legacy, accordingly, elevates Flraulein
Bertha to i high rank among tie
wealthiest heiresses of Europe and

A clear conception of the imlmensity
of the gtu shops at Essen is obtainable
from th, following description of theln
written by Thomas Ashbury, of Man

the plant and carefully investigated its
