who was Comptroller of the finance of
France in 17.17. When the country was in
danger of bankruptcy he recommended
a rigid retrenchment on public affairs
and economy in private ones. The
it- of the day, affecting to take bis advice
seriously, instituted many mock reforms
and replaced tbe customary profiles a la
silhouette. The English Illustrated Maga
zine, in an article on silhouettes, says:
One of the first and best silhoueltists who
practiced in this country was Atigustin
Ainant Constance Fidele Edouatt, who was
born at Dunkerque in 1788, and found bis
way to London as a refugee in 1815. A
soldier in bis earlier year-. Edouart had
served under Napoleon and was decorated.
By his marriage in 1810 with Emilia Laur-

ft was in 1825 that Edouart took to sil
houette cutting as a profession. Sp ending
an evening with some friends, he was shown
profile likenesses of some of the family
taken with a machine. These Edouart con
demned, but the daughters pronounced
them perfect. Challenged to do something
better, Edouart seized upon a pair of scis
sors and the cover of a letter, and putting
the father in position, "in an instant 1 pro
due a likeness." The paper being white,
the snuffers were resorted to for blacking it
over. .Natural skill triumphed over inex
perience and and difficulty. The mother's
likeness was taken with equal facility and
exactness; and Edouart's career as a sil
houettist had begun. Dr. Magendie, the
portly Bishop of Bangor, was the lirst pa
tron, and- of his portrait forty copies were
ordered. Edooart'a charge of five shillings

Edouart became something of an au
thority on the art and wrote a book about
it, now very scarce. It Is entitled "A Trea

aim patronized his Royal Highness, the
lite. Duke of Gloucester, and the principal
nobility of England, Scotland and Ireland."
The text, relating to himself and his doing-,
is enlivened by illustrations, some of which
are heie reproduced. The likenesses may
fairly be regarded as the best ever pro
duced by means of a pair of scissors and a
piece of paper. His nimbleness was such
that he even made many satisfactory port
traits from description. A silhouette would
be pointed out in his rooms as somewhat
resembling the person whose likeness was
required, and from a few hints as to the

nose being too long, the chin too pointed,
or what not, he would in a very few min
utes pioduce a profile that was smilingly
paid for— not a bad test of success.
Even the sitters of the silhoiietticst had
their little, vanities. Edouart grows irrita
ble with a mail who modified his projecting
lower lip by sucking it in. destroying at the
same time all chance of a striking likeness.
The corpulent man made desperate efforts
to be thin— for when does the figure appear
to such disadvantage as in the uucouipro
inising blot of black ? Children in their
innocence he loved to take, and succeeded
in almost retaining the charm of the flower
like profile. Edouart held severely to the
limitations of his ait. lie foreswore the
ways of those who added brush work to
scissor work, whether a few gold hairs or a
white cravat and frill. His portraits he de
termined should depend for their effect on
the outline only, with no extraneous aid
beyond that of an accessory background.
The artist, no less than the sitter, had
little vanities of bis own. Doubtless Ed
ouart felt himself better than his class.
What was, as a rule, a mere means of live
lihood to a mountebank, was to bim the
) : ! i |
serious exercise of a talent. His sensitive
ness to social slights finds a record in his
pages. Once lie nad a letter of introduc
tion to a well-known public character, who
received him among many friends with
open arms. Presently his host slipped out
of his coat and said that be was quite ready
for "a little diversion." Edonart was puz
zled, and, seeing that something was wrong,
asked that tbe letter of introduction might
he read. It opened: "Mv dear friend, I
take tliis opportunity to recommend to your
notice Monsieur Edouart, the celebrated
pugilist." When it was explained that
profilist was the word every one, says the
chagrined artist, turned his back. Another
time— ami there were a great many of these
invidious other times— a stately proprie
tress would not "beniean " herself by let
ting lodging- to "a man who does them
common black shades."
If silhouetting he allowed to possess an
artistic side at all Edouart may be credited
with being its best exponent. Perhaps
those who will not recognize art in the
mere outlining of the human profile have
been unfortunate in the silhouettes they
have seen— spiritless specimens still lin
gering on the wall* of wayside farm-house
parlors. The vexed question may be
summed up in a sentence when it is said
that in principle this art of outline is pure,
but in practice and material unpleasant.
What Edouart made of it as a means of
presenting expression, and the habit and
attitude of the personality he studied,
should convince the most reluctant how
entirely the faculty of watchfully and in
telligently apprehending character makes
itself felt by any medium it may use. The
very KTOtesqueneßS of these black-patch
pictures is turned to purpose by the hand
of the master who iinds it framed for the
purpose of caricature, and even for that
whole art of minor portraiture to which
caricature is so dangerously allied.
A STRANGE STORY
Concerning a Physician Who Sud-
deiilv Falls Heir to a Fortune.
Some two years ago a man came to Ham
ilton, Ohio, and hung out a sign bearing
the words: "J. C. Ludwig, Veterinary .Sur
The doctor seemed to he doing a prosper
ous business, and several months ago mar
ried an estimable young lady, whose par
ents reside in Hamilton.
Ludwig was a man of great social stand

friends. At his residence a few days ago
he received intelligence of his father's death
in Germany, and that the son had been left
heir to a handsome fortune. Dr. Ludwig's
father has been dead several years, ana, in
accordance with the German custom, the
eider Ludwig's estate was divided among
his heirs before bis death. Here is the
STRANGE PART OF 111 I: STORY.
At the age of fifteen years the son made
known to his fattier his intention of study
ing medicine, to which his father strenu
ously objented, and so persistently were
the objections of the boy's father that the
youth left home with but SIOO in money
given him by bis lather. Tlie youth em
barked for America, and has never since
seen his father, mother or any of- the
family. The son iv course of time re
turned to Germany, and visited Berlin,
where he sought his medical education,
during which period lie never heard of his
parents, in time lie left the Medical Insti
tute and won enviable distinction in the
Franco-Prussian war, after which he re
turned to the United States, and substan
tially served three years in the war of the

his mother In Germany, but never suc
ceeded in securing an answer to any of his
letters. Jle was at a loss to account fur the
strange proceedings, and came to the con
clusion that she was either dead or haJ left
However, convinced the doctor that the let
ters written by him f II into the hands of
his sister, who audaciously destroyed them,
her prime object being to prevent her
mother from discovering the whereabouts
of the lung missing son. His father, in a
will lei t at his death, had bequeathed him
£11.000, if claimed within a stipulated time.
Some tour our live months ago the death of
the father was disclosed by a mere acci
dent, He had written to au old school
mate iv Germany ou a business matter, and
the friend in replying sent the doctor a
five-cent stamp as a present. The doctor
concluded to use the stamp by writing to
the Lord Mayor, inquiring of that fluvial
about his parents, In. due time a reply was
received from the Lord Mayor, who
chanced to be an old neighbor of the doc
tor's during his youthful days. The reply
stated that Br. Ludwig was heir to 811.000
in United States money. The doctor has
secured counsel and in a short lime hopes
to gain possession of his rightful fortune. —

The Land of the Savage Masai-They Have No
Religion and Do Not Believe in a Fu
ture—Other Savsge Tribes.
tY\*d PHYSICIAN', who recently returned
:XIJ' -fioui Central Africa, furnishes an
Jf\L? interesting article to the British
Medical Journal, from which the following
The Masai tribes, who inhabit the rich
volcanic country cast of the Victoria Xy
anza, are among the most interesting peo
ple in Central Africa. They are not ne
groes; they have good cranial development,
straight, well-shaped noses, eyes with" a
slight Mongolian slant upward, prominent
cheek-bones, jaws rarely prognathous,
chocolate-colored skins and extremely well
proportioned limbs. Both men and women
elongate the lobes of the ear by ear-stretch
ers till they nearly reach to the shoulders,
and their lists can be put through the ori
fice hi the distended part. The chief
achievements of the young Masai men or
warriors s»em to be to make eloquent
speeches and to commit murder. In
ternecine wars have depopulated their
country, and their ferocious attacks on
caravans have made Masai Land both the
terror and the terra incognita of travelers.
Till they marry the young men feed on milk
and flesh food, and smoking and chewing
tobacco and drinking fermented liquors are
strictly forbidden. Before setting out on a
lighting excursion the warriors retire to
the mountains and gorge themselves with
beef, with the idea that they thereby store
up strength. After marriage they add veg
etableJß to their food, and they then chew
tobacco and indulge in an occasional ca
rouse. The married men aud women live
iv kraals apart, and the unmarried girls
and warriors live together iv other villages
by themselves, in a state of promiscuous
free love. The women are completely
clothed in dressed hides, and are as im
moral as the men are arrogant and. fero
cious. The Masai will not allow the burial
of a corpse, as they think it will poison the
soil, aud it i- therefore cast to the wild
beast- without ceremony.
They have no religion and no belief in a
future, but are extremely suspicious and
have complete belief in witchcraft. Thomp
son, the traveler, the first European to
traverse the country of this terrible Masai,
did so by posing as a great white wizard by
the aid of an electrical machine, an arti
ficial set of teeth removed at will, and l.uo's
lruit salt, which, on being made to fizz at
the firing of a gun, would, it was alleged,
work wonders leu days afier lie had left.
To spit ou a person is to confer the great
est mark of respect Where the Masai have,
a- the result of warfare, been obliged to
"settle and mix with other tribes, and have
been cut oil from the evil
TRADITIONS OF THEIR HACK,
Their superior mental development hits re
sulted in producing hybrid tribes distin
guished for their energy in trade and their
good government. This cxi erietiee is en
couraged at the present moment when we
are making arrangements to take these
wild tribes under our protection.
Tlie Wa-Knrirondo, who live north of the
savage Masai, are cultivators of the soil and
are a vegetarian people. They have a less
line physique and less ferocity of disposi
tion than the Masai. The men go absolute
ly nude; the women "wear a necklace and
a smile," and sometimes a cotton tail; but
though unclothed they are as distinguished
for their modesty and virtue as the draped
Masai women are for their audacity aud
vice. They are fond of dancing, in which
violent muscular movements of the arms
aud shoulders form the principal part.
The Wagauda may be said to be the
French of Central Africa. They aie people
with ideas and they lead the fashions. A
race which prides itself on descent from re
mote white progenitor.-, the IVaganda stand
out, by reason of their elaborate system of
autocratic government, their laws and cus
toms which control all the affairs uf life,
even the amount of bare leg permissible at
court; their higher civilization, which is
shown in their die--, houses aud sanitary
arrangements as distinct and separate from
tlie naked savages which surround Uganda,

or Mtesa, with his barbaric court
on the shores of tho Victoria My
anza, his arrogance and cruelty,
his intelligence and eager desire to learn, his
vast armies and in huge harem, has been
described by Speke and Stanley with such
minuteness and brilliancy that his name
and character will never be forgotten. The
\Vaganda~are extremely intelligent, and the
missionaries who followed in Stanley's
steps and established a station nt Uganda
tell wonderful stories of individual con
verts who quickly learned to read the Bible
in their native tongue, and to write capital
letters, and who even suffered cruel martyr
in in- for their lalth; but all who have had
anything to do with these people agree that,
as a whole, they are crafty, lying, murder
ous thieves, Both men and women are
draped in bark cloth, and Immodesty is a
crime. The dwellings are clean. The
banana aud plau tains are the staple articles

Of which is practiced. The Wagauda are
very skillful with their lingers, and iv tho
making of shields, spears and canoes they
excel all other African tribes. They are
extremely fond of music and have a num
ber of musical instruments. Indeed, so
fond are all the African races of music
that, In Sir Samuel Baker's opinion, a man
who plays the cornet, or an organ-grinder,
could pass unharmed from one end of
Africa to the other, and that a missionary,
to be successful, ought to be able to dance
a jig and play the bagpipes. Women in
Uganda are mere baggage and all wives
have their price.
The Wauyumwezi, who have become the
trusted porters, or pagazis, of all exploring
parties or trails caravans into the interior,
are a people of great endurance and
physical strength, and are docile, courage
ous and obedient if well led. A curious
custom prevails among the Wateita of coat
ing the body with lampblack and castor oil,
which acts as a protection against excessive
beats by day and chills at night.
The cannibals of the Congo, whom Stan

In some parts of the great central forest
the dwarfs seem to be hunted and eaten by
the more powerful tribes, and Stanley de
scribes how the villages of the Congo are
ornamented with the skulls of what the na
tives called " Sokes," who, they said, were
hairy dwarfs who lived in the forest, and
whom they hunted, killed and ate, because
they stole their bananas. Stanley obtained
two Soko skulls, and brought them home

lv Western Equatorial Africa the tribes
are not cannibal south of the equator. The
tribes arc split into clans, each clan being
presided over by a chief or father, under
whose protection they live. The powerful

of Eastern Africa are unknown. The law
of the strongest docs not prevail, and
they do not laid for plunder. Polyga
my and slavery prevail here as elsewhere
in Africa. They understand the arts of
weaving and smelting metals, but how they

As these races have not been subject to
European or Arab Influence, it is probable
that the people, as well as their primitive
arts, are of great antiquity, llu Cliuiriii
holds that "of all the uncivilized races of men
.the negro lias been found to be the most
tractable and most docile, and he possesses
excellent qualities that compensate. In a
great measure, for his bad ones." That he
will disappear in time from the land he (I)u
Chaillu) has very little doubt, and that he
will follow in the course of time the inferior
races who preceded him.
That the population of Africa is decreas
ing all allow, and Dv Chaillu mentions as
the causes: "The slave trade, polygamy,
the barrenness of the women, death among
children, plague and witchcraft," aud adds,
"the latter takes away more lives than any
slave trade ever did." Tho system of night
nurseries, described by Sir Samuel Baker,
must also have great effect in keeping down
the population. Into sheds built without
the means of ventilation, the babies are put
at dusk ; there they lie all night on the clay
floor in a reeking atmosphere. They are
fetched in the chilly morning by thf tr
mothers, when they try to warm their little
naked bodies at the hut fire.
The ravages made by small-pox are ter
rible. The most repulsive form of the
disease prevails, and unchecked by vaccin
ation, it often sweeps away whole villages
and clans. .Some writers speak of plague,
and describe the bubos in the axilla, which
recall the plague of the middle ages. Ele
phantiasis, leprosy and dysentery prevail,
aud Europeans are almost invariably
attacked by malarial fevers, which yield,
however, to quinine. Drunkenness is not,
as is frequently stated, introduced by
Europeans, but is one of the favorite vices
of the primitive negro.
IN HIS BRAIN.
A Pullet That Causes but Little
[From the Cincinnati Enquirer.]
A bullet in the brain is usually sufficient
to send a man to his long account.
The most startling exception to this rule
probably ever known to physicians in this
city developed itself yesterday afternoon.
Charles Kirk, a painter, 34 years old, was
taken to the hospital by Patrol 1 with a
wound from the ball of a 22-caliber revolver
in his eye-socket, to the left of and slightly
above the bridge of the nose. By probing,
and from the symptoms of the wounded
man it was shown that the ball had crashed
through the thin plate of the skull, in tin
cavity containing the eyeball, and but ltd
itself in the anterior lobe of the Drain.
Incredible as it may seem, Kirk was no
more affected by a wound which usually
brings death on its heels than if he had
merely been scratched. lie conversed ra
tionally with Ihe doctors as to the location
and probable effect of the bullet, walked
unassisted about the receiving room-, and
what seemed most miraculous, left the hos
pital and walked to his boarding-house, un
accompanied uud without the slightest diffi
Kirk's wound was received at 4:15 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. A game of "freeze
out" was in progress in Mike Detzel's sa
loon, at OS West Court street, in which
Kirk, two men whose names are not known,
and the proprietor's son were participants.
Kirk claimed a "pot," showing his cards.
Young Delzel claimed that his cards were
higher, but, instead of showing tliein,
threw them into the deck. A quarrel arose,
and voting Detzei suddenly drew a revolver
and fired full in Kuk's face across the
table. Kirk threw up his right hand in an
instinctive attempt to protect himself. Tlie
ball passed through the tlr-shy part of the
third linger, took a bit of flesh off the side
of his thumb aad struck him in the cavity
of the left eye, just below the edge of the
frontal bone" and close to the bridge ol the
Patrolman Petit, who was a short dis
tance from the saloon, on Court street,
heard the shot and quickly for. Ed au en

against Hie bar, wiping away the blond
from his wound with a handkerchief. The
other three participants in the caid-game
Had made their escape by the back dour of
The officer, after ordering the proprietor
of Ihe place to consider himself under ar
rest for violation of the Sunday law, ran to
the nearest patrol box aud called a wagon
to convey Kirk to the hospital. Tlie
wounded man told the officer how he had
received the wound, and when the wagon
arrived took a seat iv it without assistance.
At the hospital lie dismounted without as
sistance, ami seemed tube suffering no pain,
although his left eye had become terribly
swollen and discolored.
Dr. Thornbury, the receiving physician,
made a critical examination of the wound.
A fracture of the skull was plainly indi
cated by the dilation of the pupil and tho
blood clots in the white surlace of the eye.
There was almost no hemorrhage from the
wound until a probe was used, when the
blood flowed freely. At the first application
of the probe a hard object was met within
the orbit ol the eye. This was at first sup
posed to be the bullet, but turned out to be
a fragment of bone from the fracture. The
bullet, as detailed above, was found to have
penetrated the bone of the lacrymal cavity
and lodged in the brain. No attempt was
made to reach it owing to the extreme
danger of such an operation.
- Kirk maintained that he felt perfectly
well, and seemed to have no idea of the
nature of his injuries. The only symptom
of derangement that he manifested was a
slight sickness and retching. Dr. Thorn
bury dressed bis wound and was about to
assign him to a ward when he announced
his Intention of going home. The doctor
threatened, warned and pleaded with him,
but in vain. De even declined to ride in a
cab, seeming to think lie would escape the
consequences ot injuries by belittling them,
lie walked firmly out of the hospital and
to his boarding-house, at '616 Walnut street,
His friends at the bcarding-tiousfi tried to
induce him to return to the hospital, but be
Stubbornly declined. Last evening, how
ever he began to stiller somewhat, and
made a trip to the East End to see his regu
lar physician. He returned, saying that the
pain had diminished, lie was somewhat
feverish, however, and agreed to go to the
hospital this morning if his condition was
The doctors at the hospital pronounce the
case one of the most remarkable on record,
and say that the wound have been con
sidered fatal under almost any circum
stances. The small caliber of the weapon
was all that saved Kirk.

about three Inches wide and fifteen inches
long, make a short fringe. Next fold the
ribbon across the center and stitch it one
half an inch from the fold to form a caso

Then cut a section of a writing-paper pad
to lit in between tho ribbons. Cut it so
that the binding will come directly under

may he opened like a book, the ribbon
forming the cover.
Fasten the pad in by taking a stitch

Pass a very narrow ribbon through
tlie center of the book and the pencil-case
and tie the two ends together.
A Widow. ■'■ Find.
Elizaiietii (X. J.), July 20.— 0n June
25th Martha Ann Bogart, aged 70 years,
died nt her home, 1049 Magnolia avenue,
this city. About a week ago her husband
was surprised on looking over her personal
effects to come across a dilapidated hand
bag in which, on being opened, was found
stuffed a large number of small tobacco
pouches, nil opening them they were
found to bo filled with rolls of bank bills of
various denominations, and with silver
coin. Bogart, who was the woman's second
husband, was cute enough to only let a
couple of pel sons into the secret, as Mrs.
iiogart had heirs-at-law, and having died
without making a will he was afraid they
might claim the treasure. He quickly dis
posed of all the household effects and
started a few days ago for Oregon, where
he has a brother living. Since his depart
ure the story has leaked out, and the heirs
are indignant to think that the treasure has
slipped from their clutches.
Those to whom Bogart confided his dis
covery, and who had seen the money
counted by him, say there was. over $7000
in the old satchel. Mrs. Bogart, during her
lifetime, was noted for her miserly pro
pensities. It is said of her that she even
used to split lucfer matches in quarters to
make them last longer.— St. Louis Globe-

A MISSING HEIRESS.
Disappearance of Mile. Lam ilie.
Doped by an Adventuress.
f Uuenos Ayres Cor. New York Mercury.]
The abduction of Mile. Lamille still
forms the absorbing theme of discussion
here, but up to the present time no clew
whatever has been discovered to the where
abouts or late of the lady. It is feared
that she has been murdered, since the initial
steps of the plot to obtain her wealth had
been carried out so successfully. Hut for
the constant visits of the supposed bogus
priest to the girl who had been palmed oil'
as the heiress, it is possible that the fraud
would never have been discovered, and that
.lean Lamille's princely fortune would have
passed into the hands of the schemers with
out any chance, of its recovery. Tue sus
picions of Mile. Lamille's guardian were,
however, aroused by the frequent visits of
the priest, and a watch was put upon his
actions and those of Miss Lamille. The re
sult was that the suspicions of Lawyer Gon
fales were aroused, and a photograph of tbo
young woman was sent to the convent in
Paris where Mile. Lamille was educated,
inquiring it it represented the young lady
who hud been confided to the care of the
Sisters. The reply immediately confirmed
the lawyer's suspicions. The photograph
was not that of Mile. Lamille at all, al
though of a young lady of about the same
age and .somewhat similar in physique.
THE 1 I.MKAi. 1 .0 is OF THE cam-:
Are as follows: In the early part of this
year Jean Lamille, a Frenchman, who had
amassed gieal wealth in the mines of Chile,
died in Santiago, leaving his fortune of sev
eral million francs to his daughter, a young
girl whom he had left behind him when be
quitted France, some sixteen years previ
ously, and who bad been educated nt the
Convent of the Sacred Heart. Besides a
fortune, M. Lamille left a line mansion at
•Santiago, in which lie had lately lived,
which he desired, according to the condi
tions of his will, should be reserved for his
daughter's use. Lawyer Qoufales and a
partner of i.amille were left guardians of
the heiress' estate until she became of age,
which would be in about two years' time.
These gentlemen decided to take Mile. La
mille away from the convent and install her
in her father's house under .suitable guar
dianship before site came iuto possession of
absolute control over her own property.
Neither of the gentlemen could spare time
to go to I'm is. and bring buck the young
lady, but Gonfales agreed to meet bis ward
at liuenos Ayres if the Sisters would see
her safely aboard at Liverpool. This
SEEMED SIMPLE ENOUGH,
The young lady being amply old enough to
take care of herself during the voyage. Ac
cording to the account of Sister Theresa,
who saw Mile. Lamille aboard the steamer
at Liverpool, she inquired for some person
to whom she could intrust her charge, and
was introduced to a lady who was traveling
to liuenos A vies, aud who had Willi her her
own daughter, and who professed to he a
faithful Catholic. The woman's name, she
thiol,-, was Lew in, and the Sister believes
her to have been an Englishwoman. As
suming her to have beeu a woman of re
finement and honor, the Sister requested
her to look -after Mile. Lamille during the
voyage, which Mrs. Lewin promised to do.
When the steamship arrived at liuenos
Ayres Lawyer Gonfales went aboard after
Miss Lamille and was met by the lady, in
whose charge she had been duriug the voy
age. It was this woman who introduced
the supposed Mile. Lamille to the lawyer,
but it Is now believed that It was her own
daughter whom she introduced to him, the
real Mile. Lamille being sick iv her cabin
upon the arrival of the vessel. ' The lady,
who gave the name of Margot to the law
yer, accompanied Gonfales and his sup
posed ward to the hotel where he was stop
ping and afterward returned to the vessel
with a carriage, in which she took the in
valid away, It Is now believed that it was
by this device that the Ingenious plot was
perpetrated, M. Gonfales being made to be
lieve that the woman's daughter was
REALLY HIS WAI'.D.
It is probable that the woman Lewin, or
Margul, was an adventuress, but that by a
clever manner she imposed upon the Sister
and made her believe the reverse.: During
the voyage this woman had ample time. to
develop her plans, which required only a
little self-possession and skill to carry out.
She kept the two young girls exclusively
together, thus enabling her own daughter
to glean from Mile. Lamille all the facts
necessary to enable her to : impersonate the
heiress. It was an easy matter upon the
arrival of the vessel -in South American
waters to administer some drug to the real

Mile. Lamille and palm off her own daugh

get Mile. l.amille away from the vessel and
out of Buenos Ayres as quickly as possible.
It is supposed the "priest" was only an
ascot of the Englishwoman's, commis
sioned oy her to visit her daughter and re
port progress. ' The work was so clumsily
performed that the suspicions of Gonfales
were aroused, with the result that the in
quiries followed which resulted in discov
ering the fraud that had been perpetrated.
The scheme would have been an immense
one could it have been carried out, as in
side of a year and a half the girl would
COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE FORTUNE,
And, of course, the major share of the mill
ions would have gone to the woman who
planned the undertaking. The bogus priest
has disappeared completely, and though a
heavy reward has been offered for informa
tion concerning the fate of Mile. Lamille,
do definite clew has been obtained. It is
believed that if she lias not met death at
the hands Of the woman who planned the
nefarious scheme a worse fate has befallen
her, as there aie hundreds of places in the
mining regions wheie a young and preity
girl can be disposed of and doomed to a
living death without any questions being
