Evansville, Ind.-Soured on the fair
sex because his wife deserted him in
Louisville, Ky., years ago, John Stel

here made the request that no women
be permitted to look upon his .face
after he had passed away and that
they be kept away from his fu
"They are mischief makers and as
treacherous as a rattlesnake," the old
nan said on his deathbed.
Out of gratitude for the man who
had been his true friend and who as
sisted him in his last days, Steller left
a good farm in Warrick county, near
here, to Joe Haas, a grocer and poli
Years ago Steller came here from
Louisville and got employment as a
harness maker. He toiled steadily at
his bench, and seldom lost a day from
his work. Among the large number
of employes in this establishment Stel
ler was regarded as eccentric. He
talked little, and to none of his fel
low workingmen did he make any
mention of his past life. Most of
the men with whom he worked
thought he was a bachelor, none
knowing that at one time he had a
happy home; that he had become a
woman-hater because the wife he
loved tenderly ceased to love him, and
deserted him when the hand of af
fiction was laid upon him.
In silence and alone Steller bore his
burden-and saved his money. He
had no one to live for, and cared lit
tle about the companionship of his
fellows. He lived alone above the
rocery store of Haas, and not until
is last illness was the story of his

When Steller fully realized that the

with him. Then he told the grocer the

He had been married, he said, and
'as happy with his wife in their home

When he sent word begging her to
return to him he said she replied
that she didn't love him any more and
.me would have to get along with
out her. Later he obtained a di

".t his trade.
"Now you know why I am a woman

iad anything the matter with my skin. 1
was so afraid I would have to give a

"My doctor said he didn't think it
would amount to anything. But it kept
getting worse. One day I saw a piece
